    Hi Kathryn!
    We were referred to you by Marcia at Northville Dog Training. We would like to talk with you about private sessions with our 12 month-old Black Lab-Coon hound. He has been through basic and intermediate classes but we need to learn how to work with his nose and possibly train him for other activities like S & R. He’s a sweet and beautiful dog and very fast. Please call me 734-678-5584

    Hi Kathryn – We we’re referred to you by Marcia Cavan. We have a 7 mo old Havanese who completed Puppy Kindergarten with Marcia. He needs additional training. Marcia said you might be willing to do a home visit and make recommendations on further training steps. Please let me know if this is something you are willing to do. We live in Adrian, MI
