I adopted Bailey from the Oceanside Humane Society when she was 7 months old. I was informed I was her third owner in her short life. Bailey was timid, hid food, urinated in the house, & generally unattached to our family. After researching canine training methods, I chose clicker training, & contacted Britta's Animal Training. Britta's lessons focused on correcting behaviors I was concerned with. Before a lesson she previewed what we would work on, after she would review, then later that day send me an email outlining what we did, & the homework we were to work on. I wanted to be able to bring Bailey to Farmer's Markets, street fairs, etc. Britta, suggested we meet at a Farmer's Market, she trained Bailey, while showing, and telling me what I needed to do, pay attention to, how to interact with people, children, & other dogs. This was invaluable. Bailey is the first dog I've had that when I walk in the door I'm not worried about something being ruined, chewed, a mess. Britta's training gave Bailey confidence, she doesn't hide, she's in the middle of the family.Jul 8, 2014Britta's Animal Training And Pet Services's reply
Thank you Jayme!
Not exactly what I expected, mostly Britta trained us on how we we need to work with our dog. She works with the dog also but mostly teaching and watching me and my wife work with my dog hand's on. She did an excellent job in addressing some our dog's behavioral issues and we will be working with our dog every day. She also gave us quite a bit of written directions to work with.Nov 24, 2016VerifiedBritta's Animal Training And Pet Services's reply
Thank you David!
Britta makes training fun & uses only positive reinforcement. We started training out chocolate Labrador at about 10 weeks of age and in 5 weeks he's walking well on leash, follows basic commands sit, stay, come when called and not jump up on people.May 1, 2015VerifiedBritta's Animal Training And Pet Services's reply
Thank you Renee!
I got really lucky when I found Britta. I had heard of "clicker training" and thought it would be a lot of work but it was tons of fun and Britta made everything a game. He responded beautifully and loved having her come over. I had never tried some of her training exercises. For example, I would sit quietly and drop some treats on a mat to have Sammy relax and sit quietly. This worked like a charm. We also used high value treats like cream cheese and chicken that kept him very motivated. Sammy has been so focussed on me since our training with Britta. I'm certainly going to have her come back for some "tune ups" with Sammy. She's the most professional motivating dog trainer I've met.Dec 4, 2015VerifiedBritta's Animal Training And Pet Services's reply
Thank you Ellen!
We've taken several of Britta's puppy training "good manners" classes, as well as using Britta as a trusted dog sitterl. She is a wonderful trainer and our dog has come SO far since we started working with Britta. I would unhesitatingly recommend Britta to anyone who loves their dog and just wants a good training experience that is built around positive reinforcement.Feb 25, 2015Britta's Animal Training And Pet Services's reply
