Finn is doing really well!  He is consistently going potty outside and sleeps happily overnight from about

10:30 pm to 7:30 am.  He plays really well with other dogs at the park.  He consistently responds to sit, down, settle and drop it.   Heather and Finn

Hi Everyone,  my name is Beau.  You can see a picture of me on Lynda's website. I was a guest of Lynda's from April 29th to June 10th, 2017. My mom signed me up for 6 weeks of  Lynda's puppy imprinting program.  I really enjoyed my training with Lynda and learned so much that I have my Mom and Dad so very happy and proud of me. Lynda taught me all the basic obedience commands such as sit, stand, come, lay down and more. Lynda socialized me with many other puppies and dogs so I would be confident when I see them. Lynda exposed me to many different noises, items and festivals so I won't be scared when I come across any of these. I know how to ring a bell to let my Mom and Dad know when I have to go pee outside. Lynda also gave me a lot of hugs and kisses and made me a part of her family. My Mom and I really appreciate everything Lynda has done and definitely recommend her to anyone who is considering the puppy imprint program.  Feel free to contact us at llostra@yahoo.ca  Thank you, Lisa and Beau

​​​​Lynda & Jamie gave our puppy such a great start in the big world as her third set of parents! They are so calm & gentle with the pups and we think that rubbed off on our puppy. From the first day home she never had an accident in the house and slept the whole night. The dogs are socialized with other dogs as well as humans. We're still in touch with Lynda & Jamie to get tips and to update them on Nica's progress. We highly recommend Lynda (& her 'helper' Jamie) as a dog trainer because she is an extremely competent professional with a huge warm heart.  Elizabeth, Olav and Nica

Things are going very well with Ruby!  No accidents at all, she goes to her crate for her scheduled times.  She is going to the door on her own and ringing the bells but not always does she go when she goes outside.  Sometimes I think that she just likes to ring the bells.   Sherri and Ruby

Roxy is doing great!  She has not been overwhelmed by the 5 children and has adjusted very nicely.
She loves the garden and chewing on her bones in the shade.  
Biggie and Roxy hit it off right away and love each other already.  We are really happy!!  Axelle and Roxy

Things are going pretty well!  Thank you for checking in on us.  Molly has had a couple of play dates in our own backyard, which went well, and has met people on walks.   She sleeps through the night well in a crate in our bedroom.  She has been ringing the bell, but mostly when we ask her to. Yesterday evening she did it on her own and John took her right out for a potty. She is good with potty. Only one accident and it was my fault.   Thanks for your good fundamental work. Molly is certainly keeping us busy.   Beth, John and Molly

All is going so amazing with Millie.  She is an absolute treasure in our lives.  She issooooo well behaved, sits and is patient, thinks before she leaps, is calm, loves people, loves her belly rubbed, listens and is just honestly such an easy dog it constantly amazes us.  I believe part of that is of course due to her nature, but I am certain a very large part is the very formative 4 weeks that she spent with Lynda in her loving home.  I sing her praises regularly and everyone we know clearly agrees with us that the 4 weeks were the very best  investment we could have made - the difference between her and other local 'non-imprinted' pups is really very noticeable!!  If we could have stood to be apart from her for longer I am certain Lynda could have worked even more magic with her!

Overall it is going great and we took Roxy on a bit of a road trip last week, visiting three different cottages, and she couldn’t have been better behaved or more social – she made a lot of friends and people were amazed by her great personality and behaviour.  She certainly loves being around people and is still very curious about new dogs too!  And you wouldn’t believe how big she is.  Lara and Roxy

Lynda did such a fantastic job with Oreo. She truly cares about the dogs in her care and the families that will receive them. As we learn more about our puppy it's nice to know that Lynda is just an email away.  Marko and Oreo
