“Deb Bruner has been attending various levels of obedience classes with her Schipperkes for a number of years now. Our relationship is not just that of trainer and student. Deb has become a good friend and I am not surprised she would choose a career as one to care for animals. I have watched Deb evolve as a trainer, observed the love and devotion she has for them, and she has developed a wonderful
relationship with her dogs. Deb is definitely a lover of animals, and they all love her right back. As a trainer for many years, I can see how hard she works with her dogs and how well it is paying off with her recent successes in the obedience ring. I would hire Deb to take care of my dogs without hesitation.”

“Deb came to me for some advanced training with one of her dogs who was showing reactive behaviors. Having rehabilitated her dog she is now an extremely competent and skilled dog handler who knows how to confidently and competently handle even difficult dogs in stressful situations. She reads dog body language well, uses her wonderful sense of humor to encourage the dog’s sense of joy and has the warmth and compassion of a true animal advocate. With her level of caring and expertise, I wouldn’t even hesitate to have her care for our special needs German Shepherd, Vera.”
