What people are saying
We can’t emphasize enough how much we love Fern and are so happy to have him as a resource. A friend of a friend mentioned to us that Fern was giving a behavior seminar. As soon-to-be, first time dog owners we enjoyed the seminar and felt very comfortable asking a million questions! Once Eddie came to us we did a private puppy orientation session with Fern, and learned the basics. Fern has a gift with dogs and people and makes both feel very comfortable sharing in very different worlds. Fern remains a valued “go to guy” for all our family’s pups concerns. He instilled in us the importance of early socialization and now at 11-months-old we can safely say we can take Eddie anywhere and put him in any situation with confidence. Thanks again Fern for everything!!Beth Suckow
FernDog To The Rescue! As owners of our newly rescued 6-month old Golden Doodle Moses, we sure had our hands full! And our 13-year old Sheltie mix wasn’t too sure about the new addition either. Fernando arrived with his calming energy, his engaging teaching style, and his dog training wisdom to save the day … and our sanity too! Thanks for giving us the confidence to help this fun guy find his way in our world and for bringing peace back to our household! We can’t thank you enough!Susan and Ivan Martin
Fern not only helped us to train our dogs, he helped to train us as dog owners. All of us, two-legged and four-legged, are better for his thoughtful instruction. Fern understands dogs. We didn’t, but we now have the perfect dog for us, which Fern helped us select. She is a happy, well-behaved dog who is a pleasure to have around. This isn’t an accident; Fern has always given us sensible and amazingly effective advice.Kate, Timothy and Anne Lemmer
What a wonderful experience I have had with Fern. He shows up to every engagement with a smile on his face. His teaching and understanding of dogs has amazed me. He has helped me have a happy, healthy relationship with my pack. I recommend Fern to everyone I meet.Joe Keller

“Before my human read A Better Life with Your Dog, he was riddled with behavior problems but now, thanks to Fern, he’s the most obedient guy on the block.” – Casper, 5 and a half year-old Pit Bull mix
“This book changed my life. I was seriously thinking of giving myself up for adoption. I just couldn’t take all the yelling and inactivity. Now, not only is my home life more calm and enjoyable but I’m even getting walked regularly.” – Fonzi, 10 month-old Beagle
