  • "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."
