Joanna literally saved our family!  Once our son began to crawl our Yorkie really freaked out and would bark nonstop and try to bite him when he approached her!  My husband and I were devastated and overwhelmed by the situation.  Upon meeting Joanna I knew why my vet referred her.  Joanna is knowledgeable, compassionate, understanding and immediately had a plan for us.  After the first week we saw a difference in our Yorkie and now 5 weeks later she actually likes our son!  I never dreamed they would be living in harmony together.   Joanna’s training FAR exceeded my expectations.  – Mike and Tara from Reno
