So far a positive experience. Waiting on receipt of new rescue pet.Oct 9, 2018VerifiedKelley Trainspawsitive's reply
Thanks Sherri! I’m looking forward to working with you guys!
We had an emergency situation that caused us to add a new pet to our home. We already have two pets and one of them is not very social with other pets. Kelley quickly came in, worked with all of us, and gave my husband and myself guidelines of what we need to do going forward. She was very patient and experienced. Not only did the dogs learn a lot today, but my husband and I learned a lot as well. I’m going to follow up with Kelley and will most likely use her services going forward!Sep 19, 2018VerifiedKelley Trainspawsitive's reply
It was a pleasure working with you guys! The hug you gave me before I left tonight says it all, it truly touched my heart. Thank you for being a part of my life’s passion. Looking forward to seeing you again and how the dogs settle in with one another! Thank you!
Hello fellow dog lovers! I met Kelley 20+ years ago when we worked together at a local vet hospital. It is a powerful experience meeting someone who communictes so naturally with dogs. She understands them and knows how to direct both you and your pet so an amazing bond and loving connection will emerge. She will teach you and your family how to interact with your fur companions so all involved will grow closer and into a positive relationship which will yield years of joy, loyalty, companionship and most importantly... Lots of loving licks.Jun 8, 2018VerifiedKelley Trainspawsitive's reply

We met Kelley 5 yrs ago when I was looking for a puppy trainer. I was Given a business card from my vet. I contacted Kelley and we decided to meet. I was so impressed how she worked . It became so clear it was not puppy training but human training. I enjoyed my first meeting it went by so fast I could not wait till it was time for another visit. And Toby couldn’t wait for the amazing treats she had. Kelley is a very passionate in what she does to help everyone learn how to work together. Her knowledge in her craft is second to none in my opinion. I have recommended Kelley now for 5 years.Jun 15, 2018Kelley Trainspawsitive's reply
Thank you Jo! Can’t believe 5 years have gone by! We’ve had a lot of fun from teaching Toby basic manners to some fun tricks. I have appreciated your support, recommendations, and friendship. 🐾💞🐾

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $75 for one hour sessions in your home. I prefer not to do packages in general because I don’t feel there is a one size fits all when it comes to dog training and behavior modification. Many of my clients have enough experience that one or two visits is all that is required whereas a new puppy owner may require several. In that case I am always happy to create a package based on specific needs of the family.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I go into the home and assess the dog and the family. There isn’t a one size fits all when it comes to training because we each come to the table with our unique experiences as each dog does as well. All my training is customized to the individuals level and experience and the dogs personality and motivation. Then I create a game plan based on what the family wishes to accomplish and then teach them how to implement it.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Honors graduate of Animal Behavior College Multitude of seminars and workshops Fear Free Veterinary practices Humane Societies in MD and NC Managed large boarding/training kennels.
