Just some of the reviews from the happy dog teams we have had the pleasure of coaching!

I can’t say enough good things about Renee. Being a single dog guardian can be tough, but her constant guidance, support (therapy sessions for me lol) & training tips really helped to set my puppy up for success. I couldn’t be happier with my pup & she is growing into the well-rounded, socialized dog I’ve always wanted & I couldn’t have done it without Renee!
Renee has changed my perspective on dog training forever. Her benevolence and understanding, as well as a very creative mind has helped my worked/working through complex behavioral problems that likely arose as not simply behavioral, but also emotional and medical. Her multifaceted approach to thinking about dogs will continue to inspire me for years to come. I am blessed to have her around, even as person-to-person, she is great to talk to. She has relieved so much negative emotions I had that I was carrying onto my dog. I am from Hong Kong, a place where positive dog training is rather inaccessible locally. Popular methods here do not feel right, but I was left with thinking they were the only options. I came upon Renee on social media and she has opened me up to a world of possibilities. More people should consider working virtually! Thanks, Renee.
Renee has been fantastic support for us and our cockapoo, and her virtual training sessions have been extremely valuable and effective! I would happily recommend her to anyone who wants to use positive reinforcement to have a happier and more fulfilled pup!
Renee went above and beyond to help our reactive dog (Doug) navigate our stressful environment. She gave us thousands of ideas for mental enrichment, management techniques, and desensitization strategies—and we have seen such an improvement in our boy. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate but her 1:1 virtual sessions allowed us brainstorm solutions in real-time. She helped us understand his body language, which has drastically improved our relationship. I will be recommending her to EVERYONE!
We would like to Say a 'big thank you' to Renee. We have seen a massive improvement in our dog (Zachy), he is a 14 month romanian rescue. We were struggling with his lack of confidence and reactivity. We were so impressed with her knowledge, understanding and compassion of dogs and how to tackle various situations. We were drawn to Renee's force free and positive reinforcement training and behaviourist techniques. She provided us with the necessary knowledge and tools to steer through some of our issues that we faced. We learnt habituation and desensitization strategies, mental enrichment exercises and management techniques. Renee's sessions were very practical and constant support if needed. We were given a daily journal which we completed in between our sessions. This allowed us to record daily achievements, training sessions, improvements, and milestones. We really appreciate your guidance and support. Thank you for everything!
I’ve worked one-on-one with Renee for nearly two years now. I have never worked with a dog behavior professional who has been so educational, encouraging, and EMPOWERING! She has given me more confidence in myself and my abilities to be a great partner to my dogs than anyone else. She has helped me so much with my dog Birch who struggles with reactivity, anxiety, and resource guarding. Together we came up with plans and strategies to help Birch feel comfortable enough for us to welcome a new puppy into our family. Renee even helped me pick a puppy from the litter who would be the right fit for my sensitive boy, Birch. We found a wonderful match in Pine. R+ Dogs was there to support me through the transitions and challenges that puppies bring. I’m happy to report that Birch and Pine get along quite well, and that Pine is growing into a wonderful, confident, happy dog. I will continue to work with Renee, as we all ride the waves of Pine’s adolescence together. I know it will be a smoother ride with her amazing support. I have learned so much from Renee from R+ Dogs. SHE HAS CHANGED MY LIFE completely and for the better. I wish everyone I know who share their lives with the magic that is a dog could work with her too. You’ll never feel so good about your relationship with your dog as you will after working with Renee. I can’t recommend her enough.
