I contacted Natalie at Copilot Academy when I needed some help training my 8 month old Golden Retriever/Spaniel mix, Radley. After discussing our goals, we decided on the six private lesson package. I could not have found a better trainer! Natalie is wonderful at both training your dog herself, and involving you in the process so you can continue the training at home. However, I am most impressed at how effective her training methods are at teaching your pup better manners, while also maintaining their spirit. Radley is still my silly, fun puppy, he is just a well behaved version of himself! We even reached our goal of becoming Canine Good Citizen certified! I cannot recommend Natalie at Copilot Academy enough.


My writings are essays on becoming. Experiences as I live it. Lessons from failing, and trying again. Mostly, as I get closer to becoming the woman I want to be, I hope my experience is of value to you.
