I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that." - W. Dayton Wedgefarth

We first met Christina in 2002 we needed a behaviorist who understood the make up of a Keeshond. Well what a find! Comet was SO in love with her and we were truly amazed and knew we found a gem! Comet loved Christina so much that if I wanted to get him to come inside all I'd have to do is pretend Christina was in the house and he'd come running. Prior to find Christina (a Loooong deliberate search) we had your "old World" type trainer come in, Comet was not happy, we fired him on his second lesson AND to prove the difference, he was in the neighborhood one day a few years later and it produced stress in Comet, his fear was unreal! NEVER that with Christina, she truly changed his life and ours. We had her back for our Freya in 2004 and will again soon for Baldur. She is a dog whisperer!
Quality Excellent

Dog Behavior Expert, owner NY Clever K9 Inc.

I am a Dog Behavior Expert specializing in effectively treating all behavior problems in dogs including all types of aggression and fears, treating multiple behavior problems simultaneously, providing effective treatment where other methods have failed, and successfully treating all dog breeds at all ages. For over 15 years, I've used my Dog Transformation System (SM) to successfully change stressful, desperate situations between people and their dogs into harmonious, peaceful ones, keeping dogs and owners happily together in the home. I take it as a very serious responsibility to release dogs and owners from the prison of behavior problems and in doing so prevent dogs from being euthanized due to behavior problems that could have been effectively resolved.

In addition to a wide variety of programs viewable at 
NY Clever K9 Inc., I also train dogs in Behavioral Obedience Training in nyc, queens and brooklyn.
