Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
Kim was great overall but I haven’t heard from her in weeks. I’ve tried reaching out multiple times and my dog is starting to regress due to lack of consistent training.Jun 10, 2019VerifiedLife is Pawsible's reply
I think this review is a little unfair, you have not shown up to any of the classes that you are in the group text for, you have reached out to me one time, you want me to certify your dog without even showing up, and you didn't even pay me the last time I came. I'm not sure where I went wrong here.
My son is needing an epileptic seizure response dog. Kim helped us pick out the perfect puppy that bonded with my son. She has given us updates and has been easy to get in touch with. She has encouraged our involvement with the training and we really appreciate that. Kim has even sent photo updates without us requesting them which has brought us much comfort. She really has a passion for the animals she works with & she cares about the customers she serves as well.May 1, 2019Verified
Kim was nice enough working with my dog and daughter on service dog training, however it was not a good fit from a business arrangement stand point.Jul 27, 2018Verified
When Kim from Life is Pawsible is present, she is understanding and patient and works to develop a plan for unique problems of the dog. Unrelated to the actual training, there isn't a reminder system, so punctuality hasn't been great. But she is willing to work around my schedule, which is great.Sep 17, 2018Verified
Improve the onboarding process and hire more trainers. Maybe implement a “get-to-know” the dog period to truly assess what is needed since you claim to “tailor” to each clients’ needs. We paid a lot of money, just to keep my dog in a kennel because he wasn’t yet susceptible to training. You may be the “cheapest” in the valley but I would much rather spend double for intensive and exclusive training.May 25, 2018VerifiedLife is Pawsible's reply
I am sorry you feel that way. Your dog has some serious trust issues and I'm not going to get any of my trainers hurt. He did not spend all his time in a kennel. He needed to get comfortable before he was receptive to training. I was just trying to make sure that we did things the most effective way and that's why I was saying your dog needed the extra time. I wish you would have communicated with me more you might have seen things a little differently
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer different packages to fit different budgets.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a certified obedience and service dog trainer. l am also an evaluator for the AKC.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always loved animals ever since I was a kid. I rescue everything from horses to Birds to dogs to cats, even some reptiles. I was introduced to training when I was searching out a service dog for my daughter. I then started working for an organization that trains service dogs.
