Our experience with Animal Smart was amazing. Brinkley is now a super star. Our trainer was kind and patient with me and treated Brinkley so well! I recommend Animal Smart to everyone. Keep in mind you get what you pay for and their expertise is worth every penny!

Awesome individual!! Super sweet, understands animals and gives great advice. She came over to help our two newest dogs and was able to explain what we needed to do in simple terms. She was able to eliminate the issues we had in a short amount of time and gave us a plan to follow in the future.
