Angela provided us with a custom program to help our 1-year old puppy overcome his separation anxiety. She really understands what these dogs are going through and is able to come up with a plan that is reasonable to get them through this anxiety. We are still working at it, it takes some time, but with her patience and guidance I finally feel hopeful that we can get our pre-dog life back. Don't go it alone, get support from Angela, you won't be sorry.

Angela was truly wonderful with our puppy, who is very shy. Angela never rushed the process, and most importantly, she helped us understand our dog. She clearly loves animals deeply and I think our dog could tell and trusted her more readily. Now our shy puppy is doing great! She went from not wanting to leave the house to running around like crazy at Rodeo beach. We highly recommend Angela.

Angela is by far the best dog training in the Bay Area! She was able to teach my pup how to stay near me when off leash, to come when called and also how to listen and act according to my commands - all in a very short period of time! My dog absolutely loves her and always looks forward to his lessons 🐶
