I have known Fern for the past 4 years and we have discussion numerous behavior cases, as well as veterinary medicine in general. Fern is extremely knowledgeable about canine behavior and always offers great insight. He also does a lot of work with rescue organizations, so his heart is in it as well. If you are looking for a trainer, look no farther, Fern is your man!
I met Fern a little over a year ago after participating in one of his webinars. Having gotten to know Fern he is one of the most generous, honest and supportive people that I know. He truly cares about the person he is working with while always keeping the dogs best interest front and center. He comes from a place that holds no competition and supporting others in being successful is what is most important. I am glad to have gotten to know him, learn from him and work with him.
Fern is great. We have 3 dogs who like to control us at the dinner table. After just 1 hour he transformed them (and us!)! We are now a happy family! Thanks Fern!
When I adopted Lila at 2 months, I knew I had found an energetic puppy with a love for cuddling. What I didn’t realize, however, is that she was also an anxious dog who would need lots of work! At about 1 year, Lila turned into a bit of a monster (she disagrees). Her “sudden” change in behavior caught me completely off guard and I found myself feeling both devastated and uncertain about what to do.
That’s when I found Fern! After talking to a few trainers over the phone, I knew immediately that I wanted to work with Fern. He is a fantastic listener, a truly caring person and goes above and beyond to help his clients. During our first session together Lila warmed up to him immediately (in fact, she fell asleep on his lap after 15 minutes of his entrance). He spent that session carefully listening to my story and explaining the world through Lila’s eyes. When he left, I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders.
I’ve been working with Fern for about a year now and can’t imagine working with anyone else. While Lila still has a long way to go, she has made some pretty fantastic progress. After meeting with Fern for a few sessions, I was able to take her to the vet muzzle free and they raved about her behavior! Fern has given me more confidence as Lila’s leader and clear directions about what to do to set her up for success in tricky situations. He has made plenty of time to work with me and is super responsive to email and texts. Having someone like Fern to lean on has made it all feel manageable. He truly is a special person and I am so thankful to have him in my and Lila’s life (she agrees).
