​"I rescued a gorgeous 2 year old female Golden Doodle named Maggie a couple of months ago.  She was great with everything other than walking and some aggression towards other dogs, especially females.  Lindsay's contact appeared in an article about dog training in the Orlando Sentinel.  After 5 or 6 private sessions, what a difference!  Thank you, so much, Lindsay!"

"Lindsay was instrumental in turning my little beast of a Golden Retriever into a pleasant little friend. She seems to work magic, and can have them literally eating out of her hands in minutes, and doing some really great tricks!"​

"Lindsay is awesome! She is patient and makes sense of everything when it comes to dog training. You can really tell she has a passion for what she does!"

“Down Home Dog Training has been a blessing in my life! My Morkie, Stella could barely sit on command and thanks to Lindsay, she is now a certified therapy dog!! Lindsay is extremely knowledgable, patient, professional and is wonderful with people and animals. I would recommend Lindsay and Down Home Dog Training to all of my family and friends!”

"I can’t say enough good things about our training experience with Lindsay. I started private training with her in July of 2011 for my Chocolate Lab, Cody. He had taken obedience classes and done well but he was still jumping up and not walking well on the leash. Typical behavior for a 1 year old Lab but not desirable.  We worked on these issues and made wonderful progress. He excelled with Lindsay and it was so much fun to literally watch him learn before my eyes. We continued with training into 2012 because he and I enjoyed it so much. I’m proud to say that he passed his Canine Good Citizen test in March 2012 which was quite a feat. He had to walk on a loose leash without pulling and obey commands all without any treats.  He’s a very good and smart boy but I really credit Lindsay with getting us there.
If you work with Lindsay she can help you and your dog too!!"

"We live in a high rise, travel frequently, and work long hours so when we got our beautiful little Coton de Tulear puppy, Daphne, we knew we needed to get her trained quickly. Lindsay came highly recommended by friends. They raved about her gentle approach, effective process, and wonderful demeanor. When we started working with Lindsay she was all that and more. She offered private sessions, flexible scheduling, and tailored topics to meet our obedience training needs. We use lessons learned from Lindsay on a daily basis and highly recommend her for puppy and owner training."

"Lindsay is the best trainer around! From the moment we first talked on the phone, I could tell she cared about my pup and we were in good hands with her training, which she sure was proved right... My sweet Zoey learned all her basic commands so quickly, and I get compliments all the time about what a well behaved pup she is. Lindsay has not only become the only trainer in town I would go to for continued training and highly recommend to others, but she has also become a good friend to me and Zoey."

"After numerous trainers to help train my dog, we found Lindsay.  In what seemed like no time at all, with her positive training techniques, Maximus is the dog I always knew he could be.   With Lindsay’s help, Maximus achieved his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and was able to pass the Therapy Dog International test.  We can’t thank her enough."

“I love Down Home Dog Training! The Wednesday night pack walks are a great way to get my dog to interact with other dogs and work on training and behavior. My dog and I have done the advanced and tricks classes and both learned patience and useful commands that make both our lives easier. Lindsay always makes the classes fun and interacts great with my dog--she's always excited to hang out with her trainer”

Erica Szuch (and Ollie)

“We love DHDT! Lindsay is so patient while teaching and is instrumental in building your confidence as a handler so that you have a confident relationship with your dog.
And Lindsay is so creative in organizing fun new ways to socialize with your dog with others.”
