Amazing!

We recently adopted a 40 lb, nine year old pointer-mix from the San Diego Animal Shelter (with no info on her background) and needed help seeing how she was with socialization and training.  Our dog had been very well trained by someone and has a sweet disposition, but has trouble [...]

I Would Recommend Her to Anyone

Julie is an amazing dog trainer. She not only works with the dog on basic obedience, she works with the humans when it comes to positive training techniques. She is very hands on with the 1 on 1 training and slowly introduces the dog to new environments. She also tells [...]

On a Course of Calm Confidence

Very positive first encounter, and second and third..... Referred to us via (a boarding facility), our first trainer that was a real Human Being (not a book or TV) proved to be just the ticket!. We are long time Basset Hound owners, (all rescues), who would have known you could [...]

She Personalized the Training

We adopted a loving rescue dog who had zero training.  She barked at other dogs, yanked on the leash so we couldn't enjoy walks, and constantly potty'd on the carpet.  I was always a cat owner and never owned a dog before and needed some help.  I called Julie Schmitt [...]

Chose Her Specifically Because of Her Training Philosophy

I have a  2 year old Shiba Inu named Corner who has the name for a reason... Julie was an amazing dog trainer and a very professional person! I have never gone to a trainer or had one come to the house before because I was afraid of how they [...]

Leroy Has Been Transformed

WOW!  I had almost given up on being able to take my boy Leroy for a walk without him reacting to every dog he sees.  He had been at another in-kennel training program for 5 weeks with mixed results, so I decided to try one more time with a different [...]

We Started Seeing Results Immediately

Julie is an excellent dog trainer! Let me start by saying that in case you just want to skip the rest of my review. We contacted Julie to address a behavior issue with our 3 year old poodle/terrier mix (Louis) - he did not like people or dogs, would bark [...]

Our Walks are Pleasant and Enjoyable.

Who says you can't teach old dogs new tricks? My dog Jack, 9 year old Papillion, had 3 individual sessions with Julie and he is a changed dog! Jack would become extremely anxious when he saw other dogs and had difficulty socializing with them once they got close to him. [...]

She is a completely different dog

Julie is AWESOME!!! My puppy was out of control & never listened to a word I said. I wanted to make sure my pup was trained properly not only for her healthy life and my sanity but also for my two toddlers. Julie had an in home visit where she [...]

The dog is much happier and so are we!

“My family’s six-month old Weimaraner had grown to be a big, lovable puppy who was trying to rule the household and everyone in it! She was more than our family could handle – but Julie’s three week Board & Training course was just the answer for her. Julie got to [...]
