Wanda Mroz: Star is doing very well... she is not the little terror she was before you walked into our home. I still am amazed at how changed she was after your first visit. She is a wonderful dog and without your help, she'd still be running the house, I'm sure!

Kathy Wolak: I am dedicating this story to Vladae and Bonny who have saved my Dog's life. Ruby is a beautiful Shar-Pei. We bought Ruby 3 years ago as a Christmas surprise for our kids. This was not a rushed decision. We had talked about getting a dog for a few years.

Danny Biddinger (told by dog): found my forever home five years ago and was very excited to be rescued! For the first time in my life I was loved and cared for by a human companion. After a year or so, my human came home with a friend for me. Her name is Polo. Polo didn’t mind other dogs and she soon became my better half. Polo and I loved our human very much but she never taught us how to behave. As a result, we became frustrated with the lack of leadership and started to act out in ways that were less than desirable.

Leslie Hensley and family: I just wanted to send you a note of thanks. I can't believe that our lessons are over and we have our big teddy bear back and better than ever. I knew that Great Pyrenees are often called the gentle giants and I couldn't understand the recent change in his personality.

Arizona Saddlery: We at Arizona Saddlery are very grateful and blessed to have Vladae as our dog trainer. Our Shiba Inu's were at a critical stage of aggression towards one another. The dogs were kept on leads at seperate locations in our business thus creating high level of aggression and frustration beyond our manageability.

Karen: I wanted to write you and thank you for coming today in the first step Jake took to obedience! When I Saw him walking in the park with you, and Not leading, but following, I almost cried! I really love my dog, and I worried after I got him that he would never be able to learn the right things. Then..........God sent me YOU!

Miles Kennedy: My wife and I both want to express to you our appreciation of the excellent dog and owner training you provided our family. As you know, we had concerns with our Labrador puppy's sometimes too playful behavior toward my wife and daughter, but as importantly, we wanted a very well behaved, happy and friendly family dog. This and more has been accomplished with your comprehensive instruction.

Judy Kwitt: Last Sept. 28th I rescued a heavily matted, docile LHASA APSO of about 2-3 years of age. I brought this scruffy, little angel home to be a loving, schmoozey companion to my invalid Mom (age 89) and me. I named her WINNIE after 4 days of observing her soft, loving POOH-BEAR demeanor. After 6 weeks of doting affection and inconsistent boundary setting, WINNIE-THE-SHREW appeared and took over the house as a self-appointed "ALPHA" leader. I was desperate.
