  1. Leby went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and provided excellent personal attention to our puppy. We are very happy with the services provided to us and we would recommend her to anyone in need for dog training and boarding.

  2. Leby is an excellent trainer! She always help me when I was lost, especially with the big dogs that are very hyper and are really hard to get them to concentrate. Leby was always very patient with us, because we were a group of about 7 – 9 people. so she was great.
    I hope that in the future I can learn more from her because I love that way of training dogs.
    Leby, you are awesome!

  3. Our dog is 95 pounds of pure bred Beauceron- from the herding class and the breed originates from France. He is powerful, loyal and strong willed. Leby and Nadine provided EXCELLENT instruction and we achieved AKC Canine Good Citizen badge. We hope to continue with Leby and Nadine to increase our knowledge and enjoyment with our dog.

  4. Leby took care of our sweet and slightly spoiled Bichon when we had to travel out of the country. First time I met her, I knew Aiji would be in great hands and she did not disappoint. I know my pup was loved and well taken care of. She kept me updated the whole time by posting pictures of the little one online, which gave me peace of mind. Thanks Leby!

  5. As a colleague and fellow dog trainer, I can say that Leby offers superior dog training that is both humane and fun for the dogs and owners alike! She is committed to helping not only her clients, but the community as well. What more could you ask for? I look forward to our continued work through the Miami Veterinary Coalition for the Prevention of Unwanted Pet Euthanasias (MVC PUP E) together!

  6. I had the pleasure of meeting Leby when I started the non-profit program, MVC PUP E, Miami Veterinary Coalition/Community To Prevent (& end) Unwanted Pet Euthanasias. The Behavior Initiative Committee of MVC PUP E reached out to trainers in the community, and Leby not only responded, but also showed up at the very first meeting, to volunteer her time to help develop programs for the pets of Miami Dade that are at risk of being surrendered or euthanized for behavior issues. This was just the tip of my discovering about her philanthropic spirit, and love and regard for pets and their well-being.

    As a result of working with Leby during this Positive Reinforcement training program for the veterinary community, I got to see Leby in action as a pet trainer, and got to know her as a person. She is skilled in the training the basics of Positive Reinforcement Pet Training sit, stay, down, loose leash walking, etc., and also knows when to encourage both pet owner and pet beyond these basics to more advanced training. I find Leby to be dependable, trustworthy, honest, professional, reliable, and patient…a breath of fresh air as they say!

    Leby volunteered her Saturdays to work with the Veterinary Community, to educate the community about Positive Reinforcement Training, both in the classroom (lecture) and hands-on with personal and rescue pets. Leby worked cooperatively and diligently with with our other volunteer trainers and the Veterinary Community to get several of the dogs, most of which happen to be rescue dogs, Canine Good Citizen Certified, which helped them to be adopted. She was also kind enough to volunteer her time to put together a video of the program, upon my request, her debut as a video editor, and she did an excellent job. She even put it up on You Tube:

    Leby’s dedication to Animal/Pet welfare extends beyond obedience training and her clients with their pets, to unwanted, abandoned, homeless pets. She is passionate about programs to reduce pet overpopulations. The MVC PUP E Program Spay Neuter Initiative Committee also had the pleasure of being a co-sponsor with her company, Rocco’s Pack, in the Great Coconut Grove Bedrace, to raise funds for low cost spay neuter programs in Miami Dade & Homestead and promote Spay Neuter Awareness in the community. Leby spearheaded this project, which was her idea, and worked diligently with all the volunteers, and accomplished the goal of raising funds to support the low cost spay neuter clinics. Through all the ups and downs, Leby kept her cool, even on the very very very hot day of the bed race, where she herself was one of the runners! : ). Another of her great qualities is her commitment to accomplishing her goals, and this expresses in her training as helping her clients & their pets accomplish their training goals.

    Leby also worked as a volunteer to promote the passing of the Pets Trust Initiative to provide funding to our local shelter to promote programs and services for the community to reduce unwanted pets, and also reduce and eliminate pet euthanasia as a means for controlling shelter overpopulation. So, Leby very much cares about animal welfare issues, and improving the lives and well-being of animals/pets.

    Leby’s general caring and regard for the wellbeing of pets is evident in her training & general interactions with pets. She treats both pets and people with respect, and seeks to make the training fun and rewarding for both! I recommend Leby to my clients to train their pets with confidence that that they are in very good hands!

  7. We adopted a 10-month old “shepherd mix” from the Miami Dade Shelter in November that had “awesome dog” scribbled all over his paperwork by the shelter staff. We couldn’t help but call him Radar due to his large pointy ears always at attention and always scanning for sounds. He came to us fully house-trained and understanding the sit command quite well.

    We are experienced dog owners having owned a Lab who went through his terrible twos until he was four. We successfully turned him into one of the greatest dogs of all time on our own, but nothing from our past experience prepared us for Radar. This new awesome dog had a dark side. Incessant jumping up, nipping at the face and chewing inappropriate things are just a few of the behaviors that were driving us mad.

    The worst was what we called “crazy hour.” After his supper, Radar would dig the carpet, whine, growl, and nip to get attention. We tried everything thing we could think of to settle him down with zero success.

    Enter Leby.

    She set us up with the tools we needed to turn Radar around. We started with more basic obedience: down, leave-it, drop-it, come, and walking on a leash. With Leby’s help we learned about marker (clicker) training, and it wasn’t long before Radar was starting to turn into an obedient dog.

    Radar had another big problem. He would go into full attack mode while walking on a leash around other dogs, skateboarders, and bicycles. Again, Leby stepped in to help us down the road to counter conditioning this behavior. We worked for weeks on this a little at a time and ended up the last session with Leby shaking my wife’s hand with her Lab in tow and Radar sitting down looking in another direction.

    Hooray Leby! Thanks for all the help. It’s been a couple of weeks now, and Radar is really starting to be the dog we want him to be.
