You cannot put your dogs' care and training in better hands than Jerri. Her patience and natural instinct with animals is beyond compare. One session with Jerri and my pup was already better behaved then when we began. Jerri explains to the owner what is happening, what she expects from the dog, and how to react when you get the desired outcome. She trains us owners just as much as she trains our dogs. Thanks Jerri for all you have done for us! Highly recommend Jerri and all of her services (training and boarding)!

Jerri has been our trainer for our 3 dogs for 5 months and has worked wonders! She has helped us integrate our latest pitt rescue, who was confiscated from her original owner due to starvation and neglect, into our family with two young children and two other rescue dogs. All three of our dogs love Jerri, and we humans have learned so much from her. Jerri always goes the extra mile, coming to our home for training, listening to our concerns for the dogs, being awesome with our kids present during training. Her boarding services are also excellent. We are grateful to have Jerri and Smarty Paws in our lives.

We have had 2 sessions with her so far. She has given us some great advice on how to get our pomeranians to stop barking so much and it's working! She is awesome with our dogs. So glad I found her! Thanks Jerri 🐾🐾🐾

Luna loves when Jerri comes to our house (mostly because of the treats!) Jerri is so patient and she doesn't just train our dog, but helps us as the owners understand Luna better! I would rate Smarty Paws even higher if I could! Definitely recommend!
