“Stacy Ramsdell from Pawsitive Focus has been a blessing in disguise. Our experience with her started last fall, after Semper Fi Fund approved our application to obtain training for my service dog, Lt. Fred.  Being an injured/ill Marine is never easy to deal with different routines every day, let alone attempt to be focused enough to train a service dog.  Except this experience was unique, she built her training not just on her expertise but also to be able to work with me as a service dog handler and my dog’s basic and advanced commands before moving on to specialty training (to help obtain ADI certification in the future); a way that made training very attainable and successful.  Stacy has a gift for not just training dogs, but helping dog owners be patient and diligent in the efforts needed to succeed.  We have formed a strong bond with Stacy and know we can count on her ongoing expertise in the future.”
