Amy has an understanding of dogs that goes above and beyond! She worked with my very fearful dog and was instrumental in helping her achieve a normal, relaxed, and fun life. Every dog deserves this, and Amy is the person to help get you there!


Amy has answered every single question I’ve had about how to better understand and communicate with my dog. Since getting coaching from Amy, I have noticed a drastic change in how well I am able to get my dog to listen and follow commands. Amy truly helped relieve so much stress (for both my dog and I).


I have known Amy for 3 decades now. I have seen her work her magic on untold numbers of dogs (all animals actually). Her patience and understanding of the canine element is absolutely amazing. Your dog is in the best, most capable hands when they are with her!


Completely and totally dedicated to the dogs, and so supportive of the owners. Kindness wins the day in every session.


Anyone who is looking for a dog trainer absolutely cannot go wrong with Amy. Aside from her immense knowledge and a natural instinct for animals, she is compassionate to the feelings of the people who love these animals. Her “no harm” training methods make sure that the animals and the people are both comfortable throughout the process. There aren’t enough stars to convey how strongly I feel about her ability to serve you and your pet for years to come!


Amy is very knowledgeable and great to work with. Her training and tips have helped me work through introducing a new dog into a household that already has a dog as well as tips for owning a reactive dog. I can’t recommend her enough!


Amy is so knowledgeable about dogs and their behavior. Her compassion towards animals in general is evident when you first meet her. If you need any level of help in regard to training your dog, Amy is the one to call!


I recommended Amy for everyone!  Clearly passionate about dogs and making sure they have a great quality of life, Amy spends so much time making sure the adjustments made fit in with our already chaotic routine! I am so so happy I reached out to her, and you will be too!


Excellent dog trainer! Our 1-year-old puppy was extremely responsive to Amy and picked up very quickly on each training we have had! Highly recommend Amy for any and all puppy /dog training.


The techniques Amy taught us have made such a big difference in our home and we feel like we have given our dog a much better way to express her feelings without becoming aggressive. Our dog loves Amy and the time she spends learning with her. I would highly recommend Understanding Fido for any training needs.


Amy is very knowledgeable and has a passion for helping people and their pets. I have known and worked with Amy for many years and have always been impressed with her ability to connect with animals.
