Whether your pet comes to the emergency room or for an ophthalmology exam, your companion’s emotional well being will be just as much of a welfare concern to me as his/her pain or illness.
As a trainer, I use ONLY reward-based training methods at Bark B.O.T.S.
“Lana not only has an amazing touch with animals but she also has a way of working with people. She teaches you how an animal would think about a situation and then caters the training to their thought process with positive reinforcement. My puppy, Zenya, and I have been in training classes with Lana since Zenya was 8 weeks old (now 9 months old). Lana helped us create a strong foundation to help Zenya be the best dog she could be. Everything from desensitizing, to proper socialization and introductions, and commands that can be used on a daily basis with the flow of life. Lana did a great job of teaching me how to do positive reinforcement training and eliminate the need for many other training methods that are often looked down upon. Zenya loved going to class and turned out to be an amazing dog with the help and guidance of Lana!” -Monique Misfeldt, Veterinary Student
“Lana is an amazing trainer!! She took a HIGHLY cat aggressive dog and adopted him from the shelter and he now lives with cats and LOVES them!! She is honest, reliable and trustworthy!! She will love and train your fur babies like her own. I can’t say enough about her and her passion to help animals.” -Janelle Marrone, Adoptions Manager at Furry Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch
“Lana is absolutely amazing. She truly cares about improving relationship that you have your pet along with training. Highly recommend her!” -Kristen Mader, Veterinary Student
“I adopted a shy frightened feral kitten that Lana had rescued. No one else believed that this cat could have been domesticated, except Lana. She was patient with her and helped her learn to trust humans. My cat is now a perfect happy house cat. I never met anyone else who loves, respects and treats animals better than Lana does. I can confidently say that she will love your pet like it was one of her own.” -Gina Blake, Adopter

Lana is also great at teaching other people and owners about training, as well as their pets. She is compassionate and able to see the world through animals’ eyes, which makes her a wonderful trainer.” -Danielle Mary, Veterinary Student
“Lana is the best. You’ll see as well. Good things come in small packages, she will love and train your animals as well.” -Stuart Perlin, Adopter
