Certified Dog Trainer and Behavior Counselor

My passion is strengthening relationships between people and their dogs. Helping people deepen their understanding of their own dog is so powerful and rewarding . Dogs want to be understood and we want to understand our dogs. I can help your with that.

I am an experienced dog owner and trainer having owned Siberian Huskies for 15 years before starting Willow Glen Paws. I also grew up with multiple mutts as well as many other animals. After moving to Willow Glen I started pet sitting in other people’s homes, dog walking, offering day care and eventually boarding in my home. Handling all sorts of dogs, I would like to help you if you are experiencing frustration with your canine friend.

I look forward to providing excellent customer service.

I  inspire my students to train their dogs in a humane manner that makes them  proud to take their dog out and about.  I want your dog to be an awesome family member.   Calm, cool and collected no mater what new people, dogs, life experiences come their way.

TESTIMONIALS

Willow Glen Paws Puppy School was just the training we needed for our little boxer. Rebecca was amazing to work with. She really listened, was supportive, and made training fun. Our puppy loved going there and we loved getting the updates and photos. We’ve definitely seen the results and highly recommend this school to others.

Rebecca helped us get off to right start with our new Goldendoodle puppy. I enjoyed working with Rebecca and was happy with how she helped us train and teach our family how to work with the puppy. We also used her for board and train while on vacation. She made us feel very good about leaving our puppy in very good caring hands.

Highly recommend. Rebecca takes a very positive & down to earth approach to dog training. She trains in her home, so our pup Annie learned in the same kind of environment she lives in – couches & kitchen counters & so on – and she gave us plenty of support to continue the training at home. I thought I pretty much knew the basics about puppies & dogs, but I learned so much from Rebecca!

“Rebecca is a godsend. She came to our house and went over everything we needed for our new puppy to make sure we started on the right paw. She is knowledgable about puppies and patient with thier owners. We are so happy we found her.”
