Dog Training & Behavior Consultations



Dog Behavior Consultations & Follow-up Training




"After our first meeting, Kelly gave me a detailed written assessment and provided us with a clear plan of action [for our aggressive dog]. She demonstrated simple, positive ways to get Banka to want to behave well.  She supplied easy interventions for our day-to-day challenges. Kelly also left us with helpful resources for keeping Banka mentally and physically stimulated. I would highly recommend Spring Training to anyone with a dog."
