"Guy came out to assist us with some obedience training for our little Chorkie, Peanut. I was worried because Peanut was making it difficult for me to work during the day (I work from home). I was also worried about a trainer because Peanut is barely 5 pounds and I was not sure they type of "hardware" that would be used. Guy took the time to work with Peanut, see his behavior then implement training and commands. He showed us the hands on approach needed, how to encourage the dog and how to stay calm to ensure we retain control over the situation. Today, Peanut is eating regularly, LOVES taking walks, is not constantly needing my attention and no longer food/

guards. We added a second pup to our family who Peanut is a great big brother for..but we may be calling Guy again for the new one, Pecan, as he sure does enjoy chewing!
Thank you so much Guy for your persistence and guidance!

"We had a wonderful time. My dog really looked forward to attending classes. I was over joyed as well to finally have a class I could take my reactive dog to without fear or stress. The staff not only were well informed on the latest training techniques but they were understanding of the problems and emotions caused when one has a reactive dog.

"Guy was prompt and extremely friendly. He immediately got to work with our puppy, without us even realizing what he was doing. The tips he provided have really helped us to understand how our actions can affect the puppy, and also teach the puppy how he should react in our house.
Guy followed-up 2 weeks following our appointment (as promised) and we're already making plans to have Guy come over again at the 4 month

"This is my fourth dog over a 30 year period. I have taken each dog to some form of training-ranging from 'dominance' based individual training, to large, almost unwieldy sized group training as though I wanted to show my dog in a ring, when I really just wanted my dog to be well mannered-to smaller group training, which was a hybrid of both styles. I did a lot of research to determine where I wanted to take my Golden Retriever puppy, and discovered

via the internet.

I am very pleased with the experience. Their training is based on positive reinforcement, rather than dominance theory. The classes are small, and during each session there are teaching sessions for the owners, practicing sessions for the owners and their puppies, and play sessions for the puppies. Puppies are assessed and placed into play groups based on their individual temperaments-so timid puppies aren't necessarily placed with really active puppies until their confidence level is up.

, and the rest of the staff are very patient. They provide live-or video examples of how to work on the targeted behaviors. They provide handouts/homework for practicing/working with our dogs during the week, and they are always willing to answer questions during, and after, class. My dog is smart, but has a mind of his own too. I believe that I am achieving excellent results through their positive reinforcement training methods. I think that if I had taken the 'dominance' based route with him, he would be more rebellious, and although he would have learned sit, down etc., it would have been at the expense of him fearing, rather than wanting to please, me-so it's a

for both of us.

I highly recommend them for your training needs, whether it's for puppies, manners, agility-they are all well educated about animal behavior, and 'Posi-dog', is really a positive experience for dogs and their owners.
