“Adopting a puppy, let alone two(!) represents a significant learning curve when the last time you had a pet was 35 years ago. We relied on Cristina to help us navigate those initial months to learn how to be an effective dog parent. She was available to us morning, noon and night and we called at all of these times! We can’t thank her enough and highly recommend her services.” Gary Margolis, owner of Juno and Olive

“It had been almost fifteen years since my husband and I had a puppy in the house so when we brought Sam home from the breeder, we were amazed at his high energy level!  While we tried to work through some training strategies on our own it soon became evident that we needed help with the training process.  Finding Cristina from the Exploration Dog Camp was a blessing.  She is personable with people and dogs and Sam quickly warmed up to her.  She gave us valuable strategies to channel his energy and before long with her guidance he has become an exemplary puppy that is adorable and sweet and lovable!  She worked with us at our home and gave us just enough homework to have success each week without feeling overwhelmed.  Plus, Cristina is available by phone, text or email if I have any questions or concerns.  I would highly recommend Cristina and her training program!!  Sam would recommend her as well!” – Jane Kaufman, owner of Samson
