Testimonials


David, Kathleen and Cailin are really great. I had my pup enrolled in leash reactivity training, and even though there were other dogs there, I felt like we were able to get an individualized course. We will continue to work with them over the summer to curb the leash reactivity even more. Overall, we had a really great experience and you can tell they truly care.

- Eric Rindfleisch





Cailin is amazing! We did puppy training with her and just had to go back for the next set of classes as her as our instructor. Our puppy is a bit timid and she knew just how to manage him. Her class is one of the only things we’d be excited to get up for on a Saturday morning!

- Caitlin McCarthy





Cailin was amazing with our dog Emmett. She was great at providing instruction and being patient with us as we learned. We saw so much improvement in 6 weeks. It was a fun and active way to bond with our dog. Also, our dog loved being around Cailin. We will continue to use Tucker Pup's for all of its services.
