"We love JW Dog Training! We got a one-year old rescue who started displaying fearful behaviors. She wouldn't go outside, would barely eat, and was afraid of *everything.* With the help of Kat we've been able to build up her confidence and implement new management techniques to help her navigate those tough moments. It is *definitely* worth the time, money, and effort." Read more.
