One Response to About Trixie

  1. Trixie is a special lady who calmed me down and helped with my behavioural problems, let alone the dogs!
    She has the grace to truly listen and come up with an action plan when it seemed like a hopeless situation.
    I have two chihuahuas and an elderly bigger dog, tensions were high as the male pup reached puberty.
    It took a couple of weeks, changing their diet, routine and using all the tips I was given, but with consistency, my home is now a love shack 🏡
    During the transition I messaged Trixie a couple of times in despair. This compassionate lady gave me more suggestions, and did not charge anymore money.
    Trixie came recommended to me by an experienced vet, but I recommend her from the point of view, that I am usually a very cynical person.
    Trixie is truly a magical lady, for dogs and humans alike. I will always be grateful and her modest fee is nothing compared to how happy she made us all 🥰💝😘
