We are a full service

training and care Agency

We strive to eliminate frustrations and improve the relationship between owners and their dogs through positive reinforcement and LIMA (least intrusive minimally aversive) methods.


Whether you are looking to teach your dog cues, tired of your dog pulling on leash, trying to stop jumping, or have a dog displaying aggressive behavior or anxiety, Devin can help! She graduated from Transylvania University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, after which she pursued a career in dog training. Devin began as a group trainer at PetSmart gaining valuable experience while obtaining professional certifications as a Canine Good Citizen evaluator, a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), and an Accredited Dog Trainer through IAABC (IAABC-ADT).

What we do

Because Devin only offers private services, every session is catered specifically to you and your dog. Training will occur either in the home or in public areas that are dog-friendly, depending on the training goals we set.

Once we craft a training plan that suits you best, we will schedule our sessions in a time that works for you! Our pet sitting options are also custom-designed giving you the peace of mind that your dog is well cared for by a trained professional – she’ll also pick up the mail and do your dishes!

Private Training

Do you want to work with your dog? Training Packages are great if you want to learn dog cues! Does your schedule leave you little time? Day Training is a great option for you! Devin will come to your home and train your dog for you!

Behavior Modification

Has your dog been showing aggression to people and/or dogs? Is your dog fearful? Learn how to spot warning signs and to read your dog. You will also learn about environmental management and how to set your dog up for success.

Boutique Pet Care

Going on a trip? Does your dog not do well with boarding? Do you want to make sure your house is okay while you are gone? Would you rather keep your dog in their own home? Need your mail collected or plants watered? Let Devin help!

Devin has partnered with PetVet365 to provide holistic health services for your Dog.  Make an appointment with one of the vets to do a full workup. Once your vet has a full bill of health, you can schedule a consultation with Devin at the office.
She will take a detailed history and provide you with a behavior modification and training plan.

Devin is wonderful! She has really helped our sweet but energetic girl to calm down and behave. Best money we’ve spent in a long time! And she does in-home pet sitting too, so we’re excited to have her stay with our pup while we’re on vacation this summer.
