Stress Free Puppy
Stress Free Puppy is an intensive program using relatable everyday situations designed to help your puppy, or young dog, accept new experiences without feeling anxious, nervous or stressful. Our goal is to give you to the knowledge and tools to confidently guide your puppy, or young dog, into a happy well adjusted life. This is especially important in a busy city like Chicago.
Many puppies and young dogs feel uncomfortable with new or unfamiliar situations.
- Does your pet seem fearful at the vet?

My name is Yazmin,
I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico.
Since I was a child I have always loved dogs and becoming a dog trainer now is like a dream come true.
My duty as a trainer is to not only build a strong bond between owners and their pets, but to educate them on the method of positive reinforcement training and behavior modification. This is my way of contributing a little to society by making dogs great furry family members.
In addition to my contribution to society, I volunteered for two years in Nuevo León, Mexico for an animal shelter. My experience also extends to agility training.
My husband and I founded a pet care and BARF food company back home in Mexico. We live, breath, and sleep dogs and dedicated our lives to making the world a better place by training these extraordinary animals.
