  • Honestly, look no further than Heather to care for your furry four-legged love. We recently used Heather to take care of our sweet senior golden doodle and she went above and beyond to ensure that our pup was cared for and given all the attention and love that she needs. Heather’s top-notch communication before, during and after her visits assured us that we had made the right decision. (She even posts your pups on her Instagram story so you can see all the fun they’re having 😁) She makes everything so easy and stress free. I will never use another service to watch our pup…Handful of Leashes is the absolute best of the best.

  • Our dogs have run our household for over a year. We allowed them to because they’re so cute and loving and funny…and all of the other things! As they are getting older some of the habits aren’t so cute anymore and we’ve found ourselves unable to have guests over, answer our door without madness, say the world “hello” without them going crazy etc… Heather came in and in 4 sessions taught us how to redirect them and start us on the path to household harmony! Heather knows dogs, she knows people too! We realized very early on in our sessions that our dogs, like children will thrive on having structure. We’ve implemented many new practices with her guidance and although it’s still work everyday we are on the right path! Highly highly recommend Heather!

  • We adopted a rescued Rottweiler named Stella almost a year ago. She came with issues but was slowly improving. Stella is intimidating, stubborn, and highly energetic. Since she is a vocal Rottweiler she scares and intimidates most people because of who she is. She would try to bully other dogs at the dog park and was “encouraged” to get training at the day care she goes to where she can release some energy. Heather was recommended to us and she very quickly helped us understand Stella and gave us strategies to use to help wrangle her feistiness into some structure and discipline. We learned that Stella is extremely bright and needs “work” to keep her engaged and productive. I mentioned to Heather on her first time here that she is more of a “dog owner trainer” than a dog trainer. In five weeks we have gotten Stella to the point that we think we can continue to help her progress without Heather’s assistance. I cannot recommend Heather highly enough. She is professional, friendly, and very conscientious with her work. I’d hire Heather in a second if we needed additional support going forward. It was a very good decision hiring Heather who did such a good job with giving us the support we needed to help our dog thrive.

  • Hi my name is Leo 🦮. I am writing to recommend my friend Heather. Heather is very patient with me even when I mess up. Sometimes I get a little rowdy but Heather always calms me down. I have learned how to be a good boy working with her. I think my mom and dad like her too because they always smile when she comes over. Biscuits and bully sticks ❤️ Leo🐾

  • Heather should absolutely be your first choice for anything related to your dog! Heather is the best and I HIGHLY recommend her services. She is very friendly, professional, personable, and she loves dogs! She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to training and dog behavior. She takes the time to get to know both you and your dog. I have used her virtual training sessions and her in home training sessions and both of those were incredibly helpful in regards to helping my dogs leash pulling, reactivity, and anxiety. We saw improvements with my dog the same day. Heather works with you in the moment and she gives you advice for how to continue to work on training when she is not there. She is also VERY responsive to messages and will always respond if you have a question or concern. I can't believe I waited this long to use her training services, both my dog and I are so much happier since we started training with Heather!!!!!! Included a picture of my dog showing just how happy she is 🙂 Thank you Heather!

I was initially looking to have Maynard, my standard poodle not pull on walks, not rush to the door and have generally good house behavior. Maynard learned all of that and much more.Not only did Heather do a great job in training our puppy but also taught us how to think as the dog sees the world in order to understand why and how dogs learn and act.I would highly recommend Heather to anyone needing their dog trained. I will be using her in the future for additional training we may need.

Heather is amazing. On her first visit she organized the family so we could do the work that we needed to do with our 9-week old puppy, Honey. Heather addressed all of our concerns and gave us actionable suggestions to help Honey move forward with her growth and development. Finally, it is clear that Heather has a special way with animals. She loves them and they love her. I highly recommend Handful Of Leashes.

We adopted a rescued Rottweiler named Stella almost a year ago. She came with issues but was improving……...SLOWLY! Stella is intimidating, stubborn, and highly energetic. Since she is a Rottweiler she scares and intimidates most people. Her breed, vocalizations, alpha-like demeanor and energy level would make many shy away from her even though she is very sweet. She would try to intimidate (again, Alpha behavior) other dogs at the dog park and was “encouraged” to get training at the day care she goes to where she can release some energy. Heather was recommended to us and she very quickly helped us understand Stella and gave us strategies to use to help wrangle her feistiness into some structure and discipline. We learned that Stella is extremely bright and needs “work” to keep her engaged and productive. I mentioned to Heather on her first time here that she is more of a “dog owner trainer” than a dog trainer. In five weeks we have gotten Stella to the point that we think we can continue to help her progress without Heather’s assistance. I cannot recommend Heather highly enough. She is professional, friendly, and very conscientious with her work. I’d hire Heather in a second if we needed additional support going forward. Don’t hesitate to give Heather a call.

Heather absolutely changed our lives for the better! Ted is learning every day to be the best version of himself all thanks to Heather! In four sessions we have seen a total transformation of his door manners and walking etiquette. I would highly recommend Heather if you are looking to better improve your dogs life and yours!
