    Pioneer Pet Care

    It was great as usual.  My dog loves going there.  She remembers it and gladly enters the building.  After staying at other places, she would fight us when we would try and enter them a second time.

    We have been using Pioneer for over 10 years.

    Make Sit Happen LLC
    We adopted a dog in January 2015.  Signed her up for training with Make Sit Happen based on a search of local trainers.  The price was $199 and Gail was pretty nice on the phone explaining what would be included and how things would work.  
    The class met once a week in the evening although there are other times available.  The training takes place in a large auditorium size room that is rented from a puppy daycare.  Each class involves different skill sets taught to your dog. It starts out very basic and gradually increases in difficulty.  The first class is pretty long (2.5 hours) but the rest are about an hour.  
    Gail provides everyone with a weekly worksheet letting them know how to continue to train your dog at home.  That is the key take away from this class.  If you want to teach your dog the skills, the class is more about learning to train your dog than having Gail train the animal.  
    I didn't know how I felt about Gail at first.  She talks in a very authoritative manner to both dogs and people.  I suppose this is to help keep control of a large room of people and animals. The class size itself is very large which limits her ability to really sit and work with you and your dog 1-1.  Still Gail makes an effort to check in on each exercise and see how your dog is performing.  
    Ultimately you will get what you put in to a class like this.  Many people did not show up to every class.  Many others clearly did not work with their dog at home so the dogs gained few skills.  This class is not a replacement for training your dog it will however teach you HOW to train your dog.  I feel that I learned a few valuable skills and my dog is better than she was prior to going there.  Gail also offers a 'refresher' course for graduates although we have not taken her up on this.  
    Pros:  
    -  Very knowledgeable instructor who clearly knows her skills.  
    -  Lots of general advice for new dog owners regarding nutrition, safety, protecting your dog from common problems\
    -  Proof that your dog can be trained!  
    Cons:  
    - Class size is a bit too large 
    - Gail's stern demeanor during class can be offputting (although she is much nicer outside of the training class)
