Louisa has several years of experience in training dogs of all ages, breeds and mixed breeds. This includes several years of training dog owners from all walks of life as well. She is experienced in teaching a wide variety of topics from puppy basics, good manners, Canine Good Citizen, Recall (Come), Loose Leash Walking and a variety of dog sports to behavioral issues such as barking, jumping, anxiety and aggression.
