'Words cannot express how much Javier and I adore Teri. We have taken both private lessons and group classes with her; each has been fun, and effective. Teri is knowledgeable beyond belief, and is a guru of positive reinforcement training methods. She taught me to better communicate with Javier, and as a result he has transformed from a naughty puppy to a well-behaved dog who is full of joy!'
