"I can honestly say that Debbie taught us to be good dog owners and how to teach Bogie skills that will last both of our lifetimes. Debbie's intuition and knowledge far outweigh any of the classroom experiences that we've had and her commitment to training is exemplary. I love that she cares about the dog and it's owners and facilitating a life long match."

"Debbie is truly extraordinary! She coached and guided us through adding our third dog adopted from a local shelter. Miley, a terribly neglected 2 year old German Shepherd, was coming into a home with Max, easy going 12 year old German Shepherd mix and Maggie, our spirited 8 year old Shih tzu. We adopted Maggie a year prior and were concerned how she would react to another dog. Debbie met us at our home to assist through the dog introductions. With Debbie's guidance during those very first moments we brought Miley home, we had a very successful first day and avoided making mistakes early on with our dogs. She continued to coach us in the days following and in less than a week, we had three dogs sharing a home. No more growling or tension! In fact, they all lay calmly together in the living room. Amazing! We could not have done it without Debbie! Her expertise and commitment are unmatched"

"We adopted Minnie when she was 3 months old from an animal shelter. We’re lucky that she came from a loving foster home and has a great temperament. But as a high-energy, growing pup, we really needed some help instilling good habits in Minnie. Debbie has been really awesome in instructing us on positive ways to reinforce good behavior and discourage any bad habits. Her knowledge and love of dogs is obvious – we really enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to any dog owner!"
Debbie went above and beyond in our training session! Not only did she provide useful applicable training tools and techniques, but she also ran us through hands on drills with real world situations to help reinforce the information she provided. I would highly recommend her, in fact, I have already passed her information on to all of my dog owning family and friends!
"My friend, Debbie DeMello, is every animal’s best friend! In our house, she is known as Auntie Debbie to our cat, Buddy, and black Lab, Jack. My family refers to her as Debbie Doolittle because she truly talks to the animals!
In the past 10 years, she has been a huge help to me regarding my animals. She was very instrumental in helping me rescue a little stray cat which became ours, Buddy, and made a house call 20 miles away, when he was sick from immunizations and being spade. He wouldn’t eat, drink water, or move! Debbie came over and found the perfect trick to help him back to health by giving him the water from a tuna can! He liked it, started drinking, and by the next morning, his strength and appetite came back!
Our dog, Jack, is a huge fan of Auntie Debbie, being she spoils him tremendously. She does it in a way that makes him behave and display his best behavior! Her gentle mannerisms, no-nonsense approach and complete confidence are just a few factors contributing to her incredible talent for working with dogs.
I’ve never known another person who is a bigger animal advocate and treats them with such respect as Debbie. The method in which she communicates with them is at a level none of us can imagine and watching her interact with dogs, and all animals, is what makes Debbie Doolittle unique!"

" We called Debbie after we got our puppy, Ginger. We already had one dog, Biscuit, and going from a one to a two dog family was super challenging. I needed quick advice about how to manage feeding and training two dogs at one time. Debbie came to our house and gave us great ideas that worked well for our family. She showed us specific training techniques which we were able to practice and use with success. She was also available for quick text messages and phone calls when we needed it. We highly recommend Debbie!"

"I had the fortunate pleasure of being referred to Debbie DeMello of “Who’s Training Who.”
Upon first meeting Debbie to evaluate my 6.5 lb. chihuahua Pepper, I was totally comfortable
and fully confident that she was the right person to assist and advise with recommendations
on Pepper’s behavior. Although there was no negative issues with Pepper, Debbie had given
me suggestions and exercises to improve the enjoyment of my service/companion chihuahua.
Debbie is truly dedicated certified expert dog trainer and behavioral counselor in her profession and the most dedicated advocate for the well being of animals and willing to go the extra mile to resolve any issues that one may encounter. I strongly recommend the expert professional services of Debbie DeMello."
