treasure valley dog whisperer


Before Marsha arrived, Six lb Jake controlled the household. But with Marsha guiding us with her calm demeanor, Jake's sweet nature now shines. In our opinion, Marsha is the Cesar Millan of Boise, ID.

 Marsha was affordable and made the experience enjoyable. My husband & I are no longer pulling our hair out over our dogs' poor behaviors! It's such a relief.


I am so thankful for Marsha's insight to my dog's tail-chasing obsession when I'm talking to someone. She also gave me eye-opening situations to show my beautiful German Shepherd that I'm the pack leader in order to reduce her anxiety. And it works!

I had the chance to observe Marsha work with two black Labrador Retrievers who were so excitable they nearly knocked us over when we entered the owner's house. They were totally out of control, but Marsha had them calm and obeying every command within minutes. It was amazing to see how in tune Marsha was with the dogs and how clearly she explained to the owner how to discipline them with a combination of simple verbal and physical cues, as well as lavish praise and the occasional treat. Marsha has a real gift, and I would highly recommend her to anyone with a dog with behavior or obedience problems        J. Irwin

After just one session with Marsha, Saywen's behavior has improved tremendously! And so has mine. My friends have noticed the difference - he rarely rushes the door or barks like a maniac when they come over although he's just as happy to see them.Betsy B.

Ky was so out of control when I got him (growling, barking, lunging at other dogs) that I was ready to give up, Marsha gave me hope. Today, Ky is a different dog

Our ten-year-old Lab had problems with dog aggression. We constantly had to be on guard for other dogs. My husband was extremely skeptical and reluctantly joined our first session. I can only tell you that within the first ten minutes of working with our dogs we were both amazed. Our dogs were looking to us for leadership and directions rather than running willy-nilly doing whatever they wanted. After Marsha left, my husband said, "I can't believe what a difference she's made in our dogs." ​ Kathy B.

We have made great strides with both dogs following Marsha's directions . First Asta's behavior's changed.. Then  I noticed that Ivy began following, my directions, as well . Even my daughter has noticed the difference. It is a real delight. Ann K

Marsha is kind, professional, punctual and now one of my very favorite people. Even though we graduated a 5-week program, Toby has shown such a positive response to her training we have decided to continue with Marsha’s Training.

We rescued an extremely anxious West Highland West terrier from a puppy mill. His anxiety caused him to act like a crazed “beast” when passing, or even seeing, other dogs. But in just one lesson, we were calmly walking our dog near other dogs with no problem. We can’t thank Marsha enough!. 

Our dog's behavioral problems of barking at the door, whining in the car and pulling on the leash have seen significant improvement after just two lessons. I have learned to relax and to impart calmness rather than anxiety to our dogs during training. I no longer feel the need to use a training collar or gentle leader during our walks and our canine companions now understand there is a boundary around our front door. Thank you, Marsha. Jim & Judy

Marsha has done a wonderful job training Buddy and myself. Buddy is a 1 1/2 yr old golden retriever rescue dog that I adopted 2 months ago. On our first training session she got Buddy crate trained, and now he loves going into his crate without me forcing him in. He also quit ripping up the lawn for attention. I wish that I had met Marsha years ago to help me train my prior Golden retriever. She truly is the "dog whisperer" of trainers!.

We have a very difficult 10 month ​old Border Terrier. After 75 min. with Marsha, we had a different puppy.We were taught the right way to walk and discipline our dog. Marsha taught us how to be in control, she is a dog whisperer..

Marsha was my last hope. She heard my pain and helped me understand that all of my unsuccessful efforts to bring my dog Cloie into a balanced state did not mean that I was a failure. I just didn’t have the tools. Marsha opened my eyes to so much [about dog psychology]. I no longer feel like a failure thanks to Marsha. Only good things have come to me and my dog since she's been in our lives.​Pamela M..

Sammy was amazing. When I arrived, she wore a muzzle because she lunged at people coming through the door. But after a few warm-up exercises, I knew that she no longer needed the muzzle. In fact, after we removed the muzzle, she approached me with a kiss as if to say "thank you."
