What Customers Are Saying

Debra was a godsend! My Rottweiler puppy started to react badly towards people screaming as though she was being hurt. With Debra’s knowledge and patience, Lilah learned that people aren’t going to hurt her, now allowing strangers to pet her without fear! Her knowledge of the basic obedience commands is much improved. I’d highly recommend High Tail Dog training for any breed of dog.

I am so happy with trainer Baylie’s approach to teaching my two rescue dogs and myself the skills to have better behaved dogs. Baylie was both firm and yet gentle with my girls. My dogs love her as much as I do. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with the decision I made calling High Tail Dog Training!

Debora Robison


Baylie at High Tail Dog Training was wonderful to work with. I’ve seen a lot of improvement in my two dog’s behavior after just 5 sessions. Baylie did more than just train my puppies, she gave me the training I needed to continue my dog’s growth into the perfect companions. I highly recommend High Tail Dog Training!

Debra is beyond fabulous. What we’ve learned in our 6 week lessons is just short of amazing. Soo thankful to have the tools she taught me to help now with my other new puppy.

Terry A.


My dog was extremely defiant. I paid for 6 classes with High Tail Dog Training and I cannot stress enough how much progress was made in those 6 sessions. It was totally worth the money as I can now actually enjoy time with my dog.

I was so discouraged. Oliver would bark and lunge aggressively at people, children, bicycles, joggers, and even just friendly neighbors. All my efforts failed and I couldn’t trust him anywhere. Working with Debra, the results were transformational.  My neighbors say he is a different dog!
