Working with Sydney was the best thing that we could have ever done! From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands. She made everything so easy! Her lessons were fun for us and our sweet little Pete!

We actually did group training elsewhere but found the one on one training with Sydney much more effective. She would customize each lesson to what we really needed to focus on for Pete.


Sydney understands dogs and what makes them tick. Her training methods, guidance and support helped us foster a stronger relationship with our puppy – getting us off to a good start while maintaining our sanity.


And Sophie

The private sessions I had soon after Sophie arrived at 13 weeks were so helpful, as was the shopping trip we took together before i brought her home. She still plays with some of those toys. Sydney’s sense of playfulness combined with her knowledge of normal development in puppies not only taught me how to work with Sophie, but were also quite therapeutic for me, since I was a bit overwhelmed in the first few weeks.
