    I have a corgi puppy, and we did 7 private training sessions. We loved the individualized attention and personalized training plan.

    My corgi is just under a year old. She had issues with running away, barking when given a command, and just being too stubborn. We have broken all of those issues and she is doing great. She will now come and sit by my feet when called.
    I would recommend this training to anyone, no matter what doggy issues you're having. Angela is kind and extremely patient.

    Angela has trained our four dogs. She is outstanding. Our boys are happy, confident, and have great manners - all of which we owe to Angela. They continue to spend time with her periodically to keep their best manners. We send everyone we know to her.

    Canine Life Skills has improved our lives and our dog's life tremendously. We adopted a Goldendoodle in November and quickly realized he was very skiddish and often acted out to get attention. He would jump on people, tables, and counters without hesitation. Perhaps the most difficult time for us was when placing Jacob in his crate or playpen. He would squeal, bark, and hurl himself off the sides of the crate to the point where we were concerned about injury. He also lacked the ability to properly communicate with other dogs - primarily because we had not exposed him to social situations.
    After initial consultation with Angela, we decided to enroll Jacob in a 10 day training program. The transformation has been amazing. No longer do we spend the day yelling at our little man. His demeanor is one of calmness and confidence and he understands what is expected of him. He calmly enters and exits his crate without hesitation and he walks perfectly on a leash. We continue to work on the commands daily for reinforcement. At our most recent vet visit, our veterinarian remarked how he seemed like a different dog.
    We are very happy with the decision to utilize the services at Canine Life Skills and would highly recommend the services to any pet owner.
