“I was so fortunate to find Dae Grodin and Dog-Abilities in 2011.  My boy Indy had developed an immune system issue and because of it I was not willing to risk boarding him in a kennel environment and take a chance of him getting sick.  Boarding him in Dae’s home environment was the best situation I could have hoped for.  He had fun buddies to play with in the huge fenced yard so he wasn’t kenneled all the time, he got love and attention 24/7, he got to keep a very close eye on Dae’s sweet bunny Clover J and there was not a concern for his health safety.  He also got some homemade healthy doggie treats and I believe he may have even talked Dae into sleeping on her bed once or twice! J  He came home each time happy and not stressed out like he used to do when boarded at a kennel and the boarding fee was very reasonable.  Indy passed away in July 2014 and I am very thankful that we were able to have such a wonderful environment for him to be in when I had to be away from him in the last years of his life.  I would highly recommend boarding your buddy with Dae.  Thank you Dae, for caring for my best friend when I was away.  Indy loved you!”

“Dog Abilities provides top notch training in a supportive atmosphere!  Dae is a great teacher and has used only positive training methods with Ozzie and me.  Working with Dae has been a pleasant experience as I am treated well and I know I can trust her to be good to my dog. I’ve found the services from Dog Abilities to be organized, up to date and skillful.  Due to all the factors mentioned and the additional information such as videos, books, and handouts provided, the services are a good value.  I’m very happy with everything from Dog Abilities!”

We were told about Dae a couple of days after we adopted our puppy, Maggie. Dae was very prompt with getting back to us about meeting to assess Maggie. Within a couple of days we set up our first private train. Prior to our meeting, I felt like I had made a big mistake adopting a dog, but after that first session with Dae, I felt empowered with the tools Dae provided to learn how to be a great dog owner and teach Maggie how to be a good dog for our family. That was the beginning of our relationship with Dae and Dog Abilities. From there, Dae began coming to our house and walking Maggie, to help us potty train her while we were at work. Additionally, we have done board and trains, basic manners class, trick class, and weekend boarding. I cannot recommend Dae and Dog Abilities enough! Dae is absolutely wonderful! She is patient and can help you identify your goals with your dog and help you reach them!
