Before training with Mariah, Teddy would respond aggressively to everything. He had pulled me down repeatedly lunging at people, joggers, bicyclists, and other dogs. Mariah did a magnificent job helping me train Teddy. We’re now enjoying walks together – even in crowded areas with dogs, people and bicyclists. We go to the park and we go downtown and we go everywhere now. I’m so grateful that we could accomplish so much! Thanks, Mariah! — Melanie M.

After adopting a dog, Barney, from the shelter a few months ago, my dog was having a lot of little behavior issues that continued to build up, that were slowly driving me crazy. After becoming aggressive towards several of my friends, I was desperate to find someone to help Barney and I. Since Barney’s very first training session with Mariah, I have seen great changes in him. His confidence has increased, he is able to calm down easier, he is less anxious, and he is overall a happier and friendlier dog. Barney and I are so lucky to have had Mariah work with him! -Marissa Z.

I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Mariah uses training methods that really work! They aren’t temporary fixes, they’re solutions that improve the relationship between you and your pet! She’s absolutely incredible! -Jaclyn H.

Not only did my 7 year old dog learn new tricks but he can now tell me when he wants to go to the bathroom, stay in his basket when new friends come through the door and his over all anxiety is down. thank you so much for taking the time to train with me and mister harvey! we appreciate you and will recommend you to anyone who is having puppy problems! -Mary H.

By the time Dolly was 4 months old, she was jumping on us, biting us, leaping off of the back of the couch and harassing us during our dinners even though she had already had dinner. Mariah was great. In no time, she had Dolly greeting us politely, staying on a mat while we ate and no more biting or death leaps from the couch! — Bryann S.

Mariah is such a wonderful person and a gifted trainer. She has helped us so much in understanding and training our new puppy that we adopted a few months ago. Our puppy showed signs of not being very well socialized and leash-reactive. With Mariah’s help in just a short time we were able to help our puppy overcome this. Even after the training was done, she is always there to answer any questions we may have about any issues that may arise while we are still getting to know our new family member. Thank you so much, Mariah! -Alisha P.

Mariah helped us wrangle our Great Dane Rogue. His behavior is light years better than it was! Thank you Mariah! -Joseph S.

I started bringing my 8 month old bichon frise to puppy classes. We started with the fabulous focus class. Before we started classes, my dog was very distracted on walks. Now when we take walks, I can redirect him much easier with the tools and exercises I’ve learned. With practice, my dog is getting better and better each day! -Antoinette
