Imogen recently worked with my ACD, Blue Heeler, puppy, Bella. Bella is smart & energetic & I needed help with Bella’s public behavior and her ability to focus on commands. I was very happy with the results of Bella’s training experience with Imogen. I would recommend Imogen to anyone needing help training their beloved canine companion.
