From my initial contact with Mary to even now, her knowledge, professionalism, support, passion and truly caring spirit is comforting as you go through both the initial process of preparing for a puppy and then bringing her/him home. It is evident before the puppies are even born, that she takes great pride in their well being, care and preparing them to eventually be taken home. Mary is very honest and a person of integrity. My Nala was born with a little kink at the end of her tail, Mary let me know right away and wanted to make sure I had no issues with this. I do not plan to show her and did not even think twice about it, of course I did! If Nala continues to love children as much as she does and our training continues as well as it has so far, our goal is to become a Pet Therapy team. Nala is a little blessing, her tail is so cute and I think the children we will work with, will enjoy her and her story. Because of the work Mary puts into raising the pups early on, Nala loves people and children, she has been using the doggie door since bringing her home at 8 weeks (amazing!), by 3 months she quickly learned to shake with both paws and she loves to run & fetch. She is incredibly sweet but she also has some spunk to her which gives her a well balanced personality! Even recently, I’ve needed some coaching to train Nala to ‘greet’ people at the front door nicely. Mary is a great coach and is committed to helping you raise a well balanced and obedient dog. I would highly recommend Mary, thank you Mary for all you do, it is so appreciated! Sharing a picture of Nala at 5, she is simply adorable and that ridge!
