I cannot say enough great things about Deb with Pepper's Paws! She is an incredibly talented dog trainer who truly cares about her clients and their furry friends. My dog was struggling with fear and confidence issues, and we didn't know where to turn. Deb came highly recommended, and from the moment we started working with her, we knew we were in good hands.Deb is patient, kind, and understanding. She took the time to get to know my dog and his unique needs. Her methods are positive and effective, and she always took the time to explain everything she was doing and why. I felt like we were learning just as much as our dog was!Thanks to Deb's hard work and expertise, my dog has made incredible progress. He is more confident, more obedient, and much happier overall. Our house is a much more enjoyable place to be now that we have worked with Deb. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, caring dog trainer. Thank you, Deb, for everything you have done for us!

Deb Murray shares her wealth of knowledge in every lesson. She is great at getting to know and understand your dog individually and crafting a training plan to get to the goals you set. Deb provides resources to help you understand what's causing certain behaviors and what to do to positively correct them. My two pandemic pups have come a long way since we started working with her.

We have a eight month old Chow Chow, Eros. We contacted Deb when he was about 5 months old to help with basic commands and socialization. He seemed to grasp the basic sit, touch and come within a couple of sessions. He also had the opportunity to meet with other dogs outside of our home, which proved to be reassuring to us as of his disposition to aggression. Deb was friendly, great with Eros and knowledgeable. We are now out of quiet Rehoboth and living in a big city. Eros seems perfectly content. Thanks so much, Deb.

Deb was excellent. In a very short time frame, our Labrador was able to learn very quickly and acclimate to different environments. I believe we started at a very good pace and then was soon able to go into the public, even trialing very high traffic areas. Deb also clearly understands dogs and training well, and is very in touch with the community, providing resources for our pet's daily living. Highly recommend her.

Deb is a miracle worker! She arrived at the first lesson to find our extremely fearful seven-month-old rescue, who we had adopted a week earlier, seeking refuge in a corner. Our most immediate need was to help Lily overcome her fear of leaving the house to go outside. Once outside, she did not want to come back in and would not leave the fenced yard or house to go on a walk. Cars, people walking nearby, even rustling leaves frightened Lily. Deb gained Lily’s trust at that first lesson and gave us crucial advice and homework. Her experience working with fearful dogs was immediately apparent. She was always responsive to our questions and Lily was excited to see Deb at each lesson. With Deb’s expertise, we continued to see tremendous improvement as our girl overcame her fear of the new and unfamiliar. We now have a joyful, playful pup who loves to go on long walks, play with other dogs, and jump in the car to go on new adventures. We are forever grateful to Deb and highly recommend Pepper’s Paws.

Deb the dog trainer was very professional, knowledgeable, & has a nice manner of teaching. My dog Hazel & I were both eager to learn & did our homework. In 4 lessons we both progressed immensely. Hazel is heads & tails better behaved & eager to listen. And Deb showed me techniques to do my part better. She originally said it may be a little difficult training a 4.5 yr old dog, she forgot about me. LOL.I couldn’t be happier I hired Deb to help us, best money I’ve spent lately. It’s greatly improved our household having a better trained dog.I’m a local & yrs ago I’d never considered hiring a dog trainer, but times change- & I’m glad I did.Deb is very good @ what she does & you won’t go wrong hiring her.

This was our first experience with a "dog trainer". What can we say? Deb was great! She listened, processed and gave excellent feedback & tips with follow up for each session. Due to the pandemic we did our 4 sessions via zoom and it still was extremely helpful to learn how to best get our puppy on the right track. Deb was always available for email follow up. I highly recommend Pepper's Paws.
