Celia's clients say

We've been fortunate to have Celia as our primary trainer and petsitter for the past five years. She truly "reads" the dog and customizes the training plan for the dog's personality. As a petsitter, she treats every dog as her own. I can only relax on vacation when Celia is taking care of my girl. When I return, my dog can’t wait until "Auntie Celia's" next visit. I enthusiastically and without reservation recommend Celia for training and petsitting services.

A Well-Balanced Dog: My Training Philosophy

Training must be consistent throughout the whole family. It is important when training one family member that they must show others involved in the training of the pup what has been taught. I welcome family sessions so we all can learn and be on the same page.

I believe basic commands are a must, but more importantly, you have to have a balanced dog. This is a dog that respects and trusts his family as leaders of the pack. A well exercised, socialized, balance-minded dog has confidence in himself and more so in his owner to lead him in a safe way. Once this bond is achieved, you can trust that your dog will react to unpredictable situations in an intelligent manner.

Please be aware that this does not happen overnight. It takes time, tenderness, love, patience, consistency, practice, and, did I mention, PATIENCE!! The time you invest now will be rewarded by developing a great friend for life.

Just get started, let’s have fun doing it and enjoy the time with your new friend!
