Amy is a great trainer and is especially good with younger, untrained dogs. She gives them a good foundation in manners and proper dog behavior. I have worked with her on a professional basis and she is aleays prompt and arrives ready to work. A great choice for your pet!

When Amy watches your pet

I love walking in the neighborhood's that we sit in, but if it is not feasible I also love walking in George Bush Park, Memorial Park, around Rice University , ect.
If it is a super active dog I enjoy riding the bike and having the dog run with me.
I also believe in playtime, playing ball/Frisbee, or search for the ball/toy, ect.
A good brushing , splashing in water if they like, and of course loads of cuddles.
