Client Says:

Jane has unique insight into animal behavior because she has worked with so many different kinds of animals. Her non-aggressive style is a proven winner with Duncan, our black lab puppy, and our entire family including our 10-year-old daughter. Jane has been so great with Duncan, we have asked her to help us train our horse. She has been a blessing to our family.
