"I was anxious to start training my rescue dog soon after he arrived, as I didn't want to establish any bad habits. I got a referral to " from someone at a breed rescue group, so figured it would be a good match. At the first session, after the initial interview and evaluation, handed me an agreement for the "Foundation Work Program", consisting of 8 private lessons. I signed and paid her in advance. cancelled the next two training sessions, then arrived over 25 minutes late for the next . When she failed to show up, without any notice or explanation, for the next session, it was clear I was not getting the service I had paid for, and was concerned about the lack of consistency for my dog. I sent the trainer an email expressing my disappointed and detailing the poor record of service, asking for a refund for the balance of the training sessions. I've heard nothing from her since! I really can't evaluate her capability as a trainer, as she didn't show up enough to know! The lack of professionalism, however, is a clear warning to avoid this provider.

"It was very interesting. Start - all the humans together telling her what we wanted for our dog. She let my kids talk first so me and my husband didn't put" words in their mouths. Then she went to meet who was in our bedroom. She told us before could run away, saunter back and forth looking over her shoulder, rush this trainer to try to eat her, or take a few steps back obiently. We had no clue what to expect, but started by backing away and rrrrin'g/like not quite a grow. Then she said I get it, and came forward a little bit and all by herself went into a down with a OOF release of energy. It was fascinating. She just gave all the (crap) she has been throwing at us up, said HELP ME it looked like. Okay like so from there it was really good. was let out of the room but she kept following Lyndy around like she had a t-bone steak in her pocket, but she never used treats. just dug her. We practiced home stuff about no longer on furniture, on a "Lazy Boy Chair" blankie on the floor instead. We practiced not letting her lunge out of the back door but not asking her to sit (hurts old dogs we learned) but WAIT but slilent. Beautiful. Then up down stairs now is not allowed to run in front of us she stays behind. Then out to the walk. Here's what all you need to learn. Short leash but relaxed. Very small tiny pop to put your own back in place. With other folks and dogs and whatvers, don't wait until it becomes bad. Get in front of it before it happens, and then it is real easy. totoally got it! Back at home when we go to 's food or toys and get bit, now we know how to OWN. The house, the food, the toys, our kids, everything. Now owns nothing, we just share it with her. I would say the best thing is that was always very nervous, kinda bristly. Now we know we have to be patinet and repeat a lot, but I have never seen my dog really relax in her life. And now she is doing so. I hugged Lyndy and boo- 'd with tears at the end, I was so relieved. It was the best under $200 bucks I have ever spent in my life. And compared to the $2K I've spent for dog training in the past, what a huge waste.

These dogs are high powered dogs. They are breeding dogs and they are very smart. Her dogs are known to have good temperament. She keeps contact and sends us videos and photos of the puppies. Her price is reasonable.

and , the instructures, both have degrees in canine phycology with over 15 years of experience. Both of them really know what they are taking about and they have helped us learn about what our young Golden Retriever needs. The course starts with a stuctures lesson and ends with homework. Some of the ...More things that we learned was how to feed our dog. There are certain traits that dogs have and one of them is that they hunt for their food. So the suggestions is that don't feed them in a bowl every day. Put the in some kind of food and let them figure it out how to get it out. They will get the mental stimulation that they need. This is just and example of what you will learn in the class. Our pup has recently graduated and now we have signed up for the next level in classes. If you are still not sure if this is the course for you then do what we did. Go to the Sunday Puppy Playgroup (cost $5) and watch your puppy play. Your pup doesn't need all of their shots to join. You will see and in action and am sure you will be convinced that this is a great place to for you and your pup to learn new ways to live with eachother.

In a nutshell, helps dogs improve their quality of life.

My dog absolutely loves going there. The fact that my dog gets excited when we turn the corner, I know she has a really good time. And they take really good care of her. They always bathe her before I pick her up. Beautiful grounds. They usually give her a roommate, so she gets lots of attention. They give a discount if the stay is longer than a week. ...More They offer massage treatment and training classes.

We signed our dog up for basic obedience through when she was 6 months old. She was abused by her previous owner, so we thought it would be a great trust builder as well as allowing her to socialize with other dogs. That class was WONDERFUL! is funny and very knowledgeable. After we took the first class, ...More we decided to keep going with the classes. Though the next two classes weren't taught by , we continued to work with experts. We also enjoyed working with . One of our classes had an older Aussie that showed aggressive behavior to other dogs. By the end of the training, the dog had gone through a complete 180. Truly remarkable! We will always encourage other pet owners to go see and his trainers. They are wonderful!
