Working with Indi has truly been an amazing experience. When we first met with her, we worked with our dog Apollo on tasks like leaving/dropping things that were not her toys, she also helped train with socialization and being around people and other dogs. After the time with Indi, Apollo listens so well and is now doing well being around people and in public. We love her training style and would recommend her to anyone!!

What a difference Indi’s training made for my dog and me! Indi transformed a sometimes unruly dog into a delightful companion, eager to please and quick to respond to word or signal commands. Indi took the time to understand what was needed, customizing the training to help adjust my dog’s behavior. Thank you, Indi, for the huge difference your training made in the quality of my dog’s life and mine! Rebecca Swanson

Indi is incredible and helped my dog and myself grow so much through her training. She is very patient, persistent, and knowledgeable and makes the most out of her hour sessions. I’d recommend her to anyone. Rocky and I appreciate her so much!

Indi is great at what she does. She has a real passion for the dogs. She really helped us center our dogs energy through games and fun.  She is very patient with the dog and the family. I would highly recommend her!

Justin Martin

Indi was recommended by a friend. We have a puppy w a few unwanted behaviors and we wanted her to be well behaved. We choose Indi to help with these things instead of conventional training programs. Extremely pleased! Our pup responds to all the things we have learned. Indi was so easy to work with and made everything so simple to understand. A well trained dog is a great dog that everyone can enjoy being around. Thanks Indi for the positive training!

Sandra Rakes

Awesome doesn't even begin to describe our experience with Indi! We were so pleased with her techniques and how quickly our dog responded to her. Her teaching was so effective considering we got much more accomplished than we had counted on. I would recommend Indi to anyone without hesitation. Thanks again, Indi!

My name is Indi, and I'm originally from the Appalachian Mountains in SWVA. I moved here to Wilmington in December, 2019. I received my dog training certification in 2010 and have spent the last 14 years training dogs and their handlers. I ended up in the dog training world very unexpectedly after many years of avoiding dogs at all costs. The story begins way back in 1989 when I was just two years old. I was trampled by several excitable blue tick hounds who had gotten out of their pen. I was completely overwhelmed by the experience, and this led to me developing a severe phobia of dogs. This fear affected my life in many ways until...


Fast forward to 2008... I was so tired of being scared to walk down the street out of fear that a dog might be loose. I was tired of the awkward conversations of having to ask friends to put their dogs in another room if I was coming over. I was finally ready to do something about it, and so I began by doing walk-throughs at the local animal shelter. I would go two or three times a week and walk up and down the aisle with dogs barking on both sides. I was intrigued by a scared looking pitbull all the way in the back of the shelter. After months of regular visits to the shelter, the staff informed me that the little pittie in the back would be euthanized that weekend if she wasn't adopted...
