    I can't thank you enough for not only saving my family (dogs included), but the harmony I see in our future is something money can’t buy, and I owe it all to you! With all sincerity, your passion for dogs is one thing, but you also care about the human aspect and make matches made in heaven!
    Its not often you meet talented folks who truly are gifted in their craft!
    As you can see, I love him soooooo much, and you truly tapped into our love for each other! poor guy doesn't have to live in hell for the rest of his senior years!
    Thank you!!!!!!"

  • "I hired Jill to work out a behavior plan for my two dogs on two separate occasions. She has incredible knowledge of how to alter poor behavior with positive and safe reinforcement. Her plans were detailed, specific and easy to follow. Jill follows up on the plan and makes sure progress is being made. My dogs are happy and better behaved in the situations that challenged them and Jill was instrumental in getting them to that point. Steve hired Dr. Goldman in 2007 and hired her more than once. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert."
