the experience…

“The techniques and strategies have been very helpful in taming and quieting Dominic. They are also relaxing us as owners, now we have a calmer way of working with Dominic.” --Mary Ellen Gevelinger, Madison, WI
“Elaine helped us with Rosie’s aging issues and gave ideas about how to help her during thunderstorms. We also know more about Rosie’s feelings after Elaine had a conversation with her — it’s wonderful to understand both her additional concerns and also her great love for us.” --Julie Roth, Minneapolis, MN
“Gracie went from being terrified of everything including cars, people, and fire hydrants to take obedience level 5 classes [AKC Canine Good Citizenship] classes, kayaking, and joining me running around the [Minneapolis] lakes. Thank you!” --Janelle Ranek, Minneapolis, MN
“Meeting with you taught me how I was misreading Jackson’s behavior. That is just as important, if not more important, than using a new kind of leash. He is more confident and so am I.” --Janice Kuschner, Minneapolis, MN
If not for Elaine’s gifts and talents we would not have known about Goofy’s stresses and been able to immediately reassure him. And after Elaine talked to him and we stopped feeding the [feral] cats, Goofy was a changed cat! He was very calm and obviously not stressed, much more relaxed. She also did a behavior modification [HTA] on Goofy because he said it would help him. Because of Elaine’s help, we were able to eliminate this whole problem [Goofy spraying outside the litter box] in 2 weeks. If not for her, we would have been struggling for months. --Claudia Green, Mesa, AZ
“Elaine has been very helpful and supportive since my adoption of a very anxious dog. Her t-touch sessions and ongoing communication has helped us both. She has great suggestions and is very responsive to my frantic calls.” --Lynnea Forness, Minneapolis, MN
