What Our Clients are Saying

thumbElizabeth
“Wow what an amazing change in our dogs behavior. Kim, with The Calmer Dog was creative, patient and most importantly calm, with our 2.5 year old English Bulldog , Puddin’. Puddin’ has been jumping on our guests, attacking the vacuum, barking for toy time and biting our feet. It has been so empowering using all her training and having such success. It has made for a much calmer dog and happier home life! We highly recommend using her!“

“We are so grateful, our kids can have friends over running in the yard and Coco isn’t jumping, biting and knocking them down. Thank you, Kim!”
thumbThe Walkers
“Homeschooling and working from home with a puppy seemed to be harder then we thought, we needed help. Kim was so understanding, she had creative and fun ideas that included the entire family. We now get to work quietly and enjoy our new little guy!”
