Review

My first session today . The difference is astounding, my dogs are so smart and all we needed was to understand them . She explained the pack mentality us and made so much sense to me and it worked . After she left we went to dinner, come back and walked them like she showed us and was the most amazing experience. Going to keep it up and can't wait for our next lesson . Would never believe one hour would change our dogs behavior but a believer !!

Review

We understand our dog so much more now. The Dog Listener is amazing. She observes you and your pet in your home and we were able to match training to our specific needs and goals. We noticed a difference with one session and so did our son and daughter-in-law when they came to visit. 2 sessions was all we needed. Highly recommend. Best money we have invested in our dog!

Review

Cornelia came to help my brother and sister-in-law with their new 3 year old border collie/Aussie mix today. Her knowledge blew us away! Within a matter of minutes Cooper was already beginning to relinquish his “Leader of the Pack” mentality. Cornelia explained, without being condescending, the problem with the way we as humans fail at treating our dogs! We realized that we actually need to be trained!!! We enjoyed our time today and we are so excited to do our homework and see Cooper develop into the best dog he can be! Don’t wait to call Cornelia….she is life changing!!!

Review

My husband and myself were thoroughly impressed with what this trainer was able to accomplish with our extremely hyper border collie/ Australian shepherd mix after 1 session! She explained the pack dog mentality and how the alpha dog is in charge of the pack. That helped us better understand our dog's behavior. We so highly recommend Cornelia!!

Review

We called Cornelia because we were at our wits end. Taking our babies for a walk was a nightmare, chewing furniture in the house and basically taking over the house. In one session, we had the dogs walking calmly, not rushing the door anymore and even leaving a treat until they were told to take it. We know that we will have to practice, practice, practice, but because of Cornelia’s expertise, we know we will have harmony in the house again and have the best behaved dogs in town.

Review

Cornelia was such a pleasure to work with! She is someone who you can tell absolutely loves what she does, practices what she teaches, and truly wants the best for each dog and their owners. My husband and I are first time dog owners and she spoke/taught us in a way that was easy to understand and apply in our day to day lives even after our training session ended. I highly recommend Cornelia to anyone who is looking to work with someone dedicated, professional, and all around a positive impact to both people and pets

Review

Wow, Cornelia helped us make some positive changes in the very first few minutes. We have a young mini-Aussie doodle and a Cavapoo. She has helped us understand how to be better owners and to be able to enjoy our pups more on walks, in the house, when visitors come, etc. VERY happy that we found Cornelia!

Review

Loved the dog listener she listened to our issues and was very helpful at sharing her feedback and corrected our issues. I feel confident that I can continue what we were taught and I will be able to take Athea back on walks/runs.

Review

We have two dogs that are impossible to leash walk and who go crazy when the door bell rings and try to run out. In her one hour of being at our house they both walked properly with us on a leash. We even had our kids ring the door bell several time and they didn't run or bark, they actually stayed put and behaved. They were like completely different dogs. She gave us the skills we need to continue to reinforce what they learned. We were super impressed with her and will continue to use her as we work on other skills.

Review

I was skeptical, but well worth the money. 1 hour is all it took to turn our out-of-control Frenchie into a well behaved gentleman.

Review

Cornelia is AMAZING!!! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone & everyone with dog fur-babies. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and kind. A dog listener & whisperer is an understatement. She is fabulous!!! Not only did our dogs responded to her immediately, we too learned so much just in our first session. We have an 11 mth old HUGE English Mastiff pup & a 2 yr old stuborn English Bulldog. Lovebugs but not always good listeners & manners needing improvement. You would be crazy not to call her for her services & enormous wisdom. I wish we found her sooner!

Review

Very helpful tips. Will use again if needed.

Review

Cornelia is an angel! She was so lovely with my 3.5 year old golden retriever. She came in and was immediately in tune with what my boy needed. I was really impressed with how few treats we used - since my guy can lose a few pounds. We’ve scheduled again for 3 weeks out because we are in a time of transition building a house and getting ready for a big move. Can’t say enough good things!! You dog doesn’t need to be a puppy to get some great one on one training.

Review

I am SO thankful to have met Cornelia! I reached out to her after rescuing a terrier mix puppy and wanting to build a solid foundation of good manners with her. Little did I know that my older chihuahua would respond so well too! I know that dog training is really about training their human, and Cornelia explains the hows and whys so clearly and effectively. It really makes sense! From minor tweaks to overall big ideas to remember, Cornelia covered so much in just our first session. I had no idea that my Ivy would learn so much so quickly, and I'm so pleased to know that my dogs will be calm, well-mannered and happy. I can't recommend Cornelia enough! She's amazing!

Review

Just the most amazing night and day difference after just 1 session! She knows her business very well.

Review

Cornelia really is The Dog Listener. We really enjoyed the time she spent with us and our puppy. I feel more confident for the practicing training techniques. All 3 of our dogs reacted positively to her. I recommend her for your dog training needs.

Review

Within minutes of coming in to our home, Cornelia had our dog standing politely beside her instead of barking and nipping at her! She taught us so much in one hour. We’ve already made progress after one initial session. We scheduled to have her come back out for a second session to see what else we can learn!

Review

Cornelia is truly the dog whisperer! We have an 8 month old Goldendoodle (Blue) who is full of energy, and I was beyond frustrated when he wouldn't listen. We've had many episodes in the past, where anytime the front door would open/doorbell rang, etc. Blue would go crazy and/or escape darting outside down the street thinking it was a game. I was also struggling with him pulling on the leash during walks...now that he's much larger, it was becoming a big problem. Cornelia had been here maybe 20-30 minutes, and was able to get Blue to stop both of the behaviors! We have "homework" exercises that she gave us to work on, and I am thrilled with the progress after just one session. Cornelia is incredibly patient, and has such a great way of explaining why certain behaviors are happening, and as a pet owner, what I can do to correct it. Our family is very impressed & her training is worth every penny!! Thank you so much for your help.

Review

Cornelia is nothing short of amazing. I reached out immediately when my family and I were unexpectedly gifted a husky puppy. Cornelia responded quickly, asked a few questions, provided comfort and even squeezed us in despite her busy schedule. She was completely patient with myself and my daughter and provided so much insight and information. Even after just one session, we gained so much knowledge and could immediately put it all into practice. Anyone can tell that she loves what she does and is, just overall, incredible!!

Review

I recently adopted a one year old Labrador mix (photo included}. While he came with good manners, he weighs in at 86 pounds and I wanted to be able to feel comfortable walking him. Cornelia Miller came to my house and worked with both myself and the dog. She showed me how to be a more confident leader and by the end of the first meeting I had met my goal of walking with control over this big guy. I do plan on meeting with her at least one more time to also help with some of his indoor manners when I leave him alone.

I would highly recommend Cornelia Miller, the Dog Listener. She is professional and encouraging. Does not use harsh training methods.

Review

Miss Cornelia Miller has been such a blessing to our household, especially our anxious headstrong Beagle pup Charli...who actually let us clean her ears and administer ear drops without even a growl! Still a work in progress (for my husband and I mostly) but such a difference already after just one session!!! 🥰

Review

We enjoyed having Cornelia help us with our dogs behavior. She had him listening to her and to us right away. It's a process we need to work on everyday but what she said about dogs behavior makes sense and that helped our understanding of what we need to do to have a calm, secure feeling pup.

Review

Cornelia is amazing. She’s got a special talent and it shows in the immediate results she gets from her dog training. You have to witness her gift to believe it. If you are tired of your dog not listening to you, the dog listener will turn your dogs bad behavior into outstanding behavior in the first training session!!

Review

Cornelia’s gift for working with dogs and owners was obvious from the moment she entered our home! We had been unsuccessful at even getting a harness or leash on one of our dogs, Lucy. After 30 minutes, Cornelia had us walking our Lucy, and all of us were relaxed! What a difference one training session makes! We are looking forward to our next sessions, and enjoying our 3 dogs!

Review

I can’t say enough how amazing Cornelia is. Dog listener to dog whisperer. We have 3 extra large breeds that we just could not get to mind. Within 10 minutes, she had them mentally focused on her, they were completely different dogs. She didn’t train through treats but rather through connecting with their needs. But mostly she coached us on our behavior as dog parents and how we set proper boundaries. We have her coming back for follow up training for us and so looking forward to learning more. It’s funny, how she’s showing us to be better, stronger dog parents with boundaries really relates to our child parenting style too, so we’re getting free parent training as well, lol.

Review

Cornelia is an amazing trainer! I was impressed in the first 10 minutes of training and can tell how much she loves doing her job. She taught me the meaning of being a pack leader with my 8 month old Pyredoodle Polar and how to be very patient as he learns and grows. Already my pup is responding to the training and i look forward to developing stronger relationship with him. I recommend Cornelia to anyone who is looking for a professional trainer. Looking forward to our next session with her!! Thanks again, Daniel and Polar!

Review

Cornelia is an excellent trainer and I definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help with their fur babies. She was so good with our babies and took the time to explain so much to us. We were all amazed at how she was able to calm our yorkies within minutes of meeting her. I look forward to learning so much more from Cornelia as we train our newest member a GSD puppy.

Review

Review

Cornelia's understanding of dogs is undeniable. Within minutes of meeting me and my German shepherd she was making observations and explaining in detail how I can improve to get the behavior I want. By coming to my house she got to see him in his environment and she offered training tips we can do at home every day. Both my dog and I learned a lot from her in just one session! After shopping around I highly recommend working with her.

Review

Wow! First of all I learned so much about how my dog Teddy feeds off of energy. I was in awe the entire session. Cornelia is truly magical. I would highly recommend her to any dog owner. We had training with a big box pet store and that was nothing in comparison to this 1 session. We are excited to put our new knowledge to the test and have Teddy happy and stress free with us as the pack leader!

Review

From the beginning Cornelia was responsive to my distress message with questions when we brought our rescue puppy home. She was gracious enough to talk me through some issues until we were able to have our fist one on one training session. Our dog Billy has spent time boarding with The Dog Listener and we knew he was in good hands. Cared for as if he was one of their own dogs. Billy also attends doggie daycare twice per week to learn very important social skills and confidence. He absolutely loves it and a side bonus he is exhausted from all the play he gets.

Review

Taking advantage of The Dog Listener and the expertise provided by Cornelia was the best thing we did early on with our 4 month old Border Collie. We now know there’s a method to walking our dog, and the success of the training was clear almost immediately after doing it! Sticking to the method Cornelia taught us has made walking and interacting with our dog a great experience. We will also be using the daycare and boarding option and are confident our dog will be in good hands, as well as have fun! Highly recommend!

Review

We had a fantastic training session for our puppy. Amazing to know and understand why she was such a barker. Thank you for everything. So glad that we found you!!

Review

We found The Dog Listener (TDL) through a friend and we are so glad we did! We adopted a border collie puppy and knew that in our family of 4 humans and 2 cats he would fit right in but we needed some help directing his energy. Within one session, TDL helped us conquer some puppy habits like nipping hands and clothes. During the second session, she had discovered some dominance behavior over our younger son and got rid of that by her working with the puppy that day and showing us some follow through strategies. Between session 2 and 3, my wife had grown frustrated with walks and voiced that to TDL and they spent much of the third session bringing joy back to walking - and she even showed my wife how she and the pup could slowly start to run together over time! Every concern we’ve brought to TDL is met with a strategy that she implements in the session and then teaches us how to follow through to reinforce the desired behavior. Cornelia (TDL) is patient, kind, and has a great way of teaching us and, frankly, training us as humans to be better dog parents. I can’t recommend TDL highly enough!

Review

So amazing!! My pups were changed pups almost immediately. I am so impressed and can’t wait to schedule future sessions

Review

Cornelia is by far the best personal trainer you can get for your dog. She was such an amazing find for our girl Kena. Very personal and great at one on ones. Gives you valuable information on the right way to treat and train your dog. Cornelia you're amazing! Love Gabby and John

Review

Cornelia is exceptional with both dogs and people. Her calm and controlled demeanor is magic with our pack of 8 dogs and we sought her training for our newest rescue. Cornelia has taught us how to be the pack leader and exhibit calm while directing our newest rescue to acceptable behavior and her place on our pack. We’ve worked on leash walking, jumping, increasing her confidence and getting used to the car. Cornelia is extremely prompt, professional and a wonderful communicator. She loves what she does and is so good at it!

Review

Exceptional connection between trainer and doggie. Easy to learn techniques to use. Makes it fun too. We look forward to every session. Thank you for the good work you do.

Review

Oh my goodness! I cannot tell you the difference that Cornelia has made in our home. She has helped us to rethink how we work with each other and our dog. Reasserting ourselves as the pack leaders, with her guidance, has been truly been an amazing experience. We have only had two sessions with her so far and look forward to all the progress in our next sessions.

Review

I love bringing my puppy to The Dog Listener. They love my pup as if it was their own and I feel very comfortable leaving her there for doggy daycare. She gets lots of play time and lots of love.

Training, is top notch and she has that gift of knowing what dogs need and how to get them to listen. If you need help with your pups training, this is the place to contact. Amazing transformations happen here!

Review

Cornelia came over today and she really wowed my husband and I on how to better train our overly excited dog Loki. I never thought he would act so calm after our session. She is so great with dogs and really knows what she is doing! If you think your dog is untrainable, you haven’t met Cornelia, she is the best at what she does!

Review

Cornelia is great! We've only had one session with her and by putting her lessons in place, started to see results the same day! She's very patient and encouraging. It's obvious how much she loves dogs and wants to help dog owners.

Review

Cornelia is amazing with our dog. In just two short sessions she has been able to transform the behavior of our sweet puppy and she is teaching us how to handle behavior that is less than ideal. She is training us and our sweet dog! Thank you Cornelia!

Review

Cornelia is wonderful! She is patient with our puppy and with me!! She is teaching me so much and I am already amazed at the results!

Review

We have been working with The Dog Listener on impulse control, excessive barking and leash walking. She is knowledgeable and patient with my pups. She knows how to be stern when needed, and I’ve also seen her show love and care for them! We’ve learned many tactics to help us help our pups, and we have seen much improvement!

One of my dogs would stop in the middle of a walk and refuse to move. She taught me how to encourage him and helped me learn the art of taking my time and relaxing during walks which has helped him be a more confident walker. I recommend The Dog Listener with great confidence!!

Review

Cornelia is an incredible trainer! My husband and I have worked with many different trainers, but we’ve never seen such a big change in our dog until working with Cornelia. Our dog has a lot of anxiety with other dogs and strangers. Cornelia has helped our dog be less reactive to other dogs and more confident. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and offers practical advice. I highly recommend her if you have any concerns about your pup!

Review

Cornelia has done an awesome job with our two dogs. Our labradoodle especially was incredibly difficult to walk before but after just a few lessons he is doing so much better. We have learned so much from Cornelia and are so grateful to have met her.

Review

Our time with Cornelia was so effective and it was so inspiring to see the transformation in our pup during just one appointment. Cornelia took the time to explain the reasoning behind her methods and it was so helpful. She not only was hands on with our pup but also had me practice the method in front of her as well to ensure I would be successful on my own. She’s incredible - you won’t regret working with her!

Review

We have had an awesome experience! Cornelia is a God send for our family and our furbabies. She has been able to make more progress with our youngest boy in meeting 2 times than we've made in months with other trainers. She is kind, gentle and loving to the dogs, but gets them to learn and do things that's important to the family and the dogs.. I highly recommend her to anyone truly wanting to help their babies!

Review

Cornelia is absolutely amazing with dogs. I attended a neighborhood seminar this morning where she worked one on one with the attendees. In the 15 minutes she worked with us she had us walking our boxer peacefully past several barking dogs!! I was amazed and so excited to have this outcome! I had heard great things about her before and witnessed it today for myself. We are so looking forward to train further with her!!
