went over a few basics for training the dog and gave us a DVD. The video on the DVD also had some instructions. They also have unlimited phone contact for training. Our dog had a hard time adjusting to the “correction” from the fence. The mere sound of the warning “beep” scared him. When he heard the sound, he ran to the door. It was difficult to coax him out of the house. We called the phone number and they gave us some tips. Our dog continued to have difficulty adjusting. We talked to

came out the house a few times and helped work with getting our dog more comfortable with being in the yard. In our neighborhood there are several dogs in non-visible fence systems (not all the same brand) and those dogs all adjusted to the warning systems and learned to stay within the “fence” boundaries. It seemed our dog was having a particularly difficult time adjusting. We had turned the electrical warning to the lowest stetting and placed electrical tape on the correction device on the collar, so he was not receiving the electrical warning. He only received the warning sound.
worked with our dog a bit and showed us tips to help our dog come out of the house and be more comfortable being in the yard

"The staff at
were incredibly friendly and professional. The installer arrived on time, and the installation itself was executed beautifully." After the installation was complete, the installer spent time educating our family and working with our dog on initial training. The fence itself has been a great investment and has worked as advertised. Our dog loves her new freedom in the front yard and enjoys being off-leash with the rest of the family.

They have a fantastic (clean, modern, bright) faciltiy. Took my pup there for basic obedience training - levels 1 through 3 -and we made a lot of progress. All trainers and volunteers were good to work with and the flexibility for class attendence is a real plus. Also, the front desk staff is very friendly for kennel stays, etc.

This was a continuation for us of two earlier Control Unleashed classes under Cassia. She is absolutely fabulous. Her ability to observe what is happening with the dogs is fascinating. The class is based on a book and Cassia and
Minneapolis Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
(the other instructor for the class) did an excellent job of translating the exercises into real-life training that was appropriate for each of the dogs in the class. I learned so much in these classes! I feel I am a better dog handler because of them. If it had not been for this I would not now be able to be competing in Agility. My dog was simply too reactive. Now she is SO much better. My mom swears she is a different dog. We have gone on to successfully compete at Novice Level and earn qualifying scores and some first place ribbons. :-)

said because it was separation anxiety she needed to do a home visit. Which was great because she looked at the layout of the home and how to use it to help the problem. Move the bed here, make him stay back there. Was absolutely incredible. And amazingly the suggestions she gave us started working right away. The money was well worth the expense of the door that

was fabulous and taught us excellent skills for all of the issues we had. My dog's barking is much more under control, both in the house and in the yard. As for the door rushing - with both of the dogs, it's like they're totally different dogs! We still have work to do, but we've all been amazed at how much better it's been. The most important piece - getting past his fear of my boyfriend's daughter - is well in place. He now thinks she is the best thing in world! When he does get over-excited, we know how to calm him down and it works like a charm.
