Our labradoodle has been with Susan since he was a puppy (now 2.5) and he loves it! He gets so excited when Susan picks him up knowing he will get to play with his friends. He often sits looking at the door about the time he gets picked up in anticipation of the fun he will have. My husband and I both work fulltime so working with Susan provides us with tremendous flexibility. We know our dog is getting exercise and socializing with other dogs every single day. He returns home tired and happy. When our labradoodle was just a puppy Susan also did a tremendous job helping to train him. We went to classes with him, but Susan worked on many tricks (sit, stay, take it, leave it, etc.) with him, which helped reinforce what he was learning in class and at home. I highly recommend Susan for any age dog.Aug 9, 2018Verified
Susan is an expert. She very observant, respectful and sensitive . You can tell she loves her work and your pets. I have two very senior dogs who can be aggressive with an overly active puppy. She has taught each of them skills (us too!) and we are no longer afraid to have them engage. I have recommended her to my friends already. We all look forward to her visit.Sep 24, 2017Verified
We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.Jul 28, 2017Verified
Susan was wonderful. Highly personable, clearly amazing with dogs, and very attentive to owner and dog needs. I would recommend Susan to anyone.Jul 7, 2017Verified
Susan is great with animals and people! Our dog loves her and she's been able to teach us great skills for building on the solid foundation she's laying down. We'd been taking our dog to group lessons and were very guilty of not working with him as much as we should have outside of class. Susan has helped get us back on track and has shown us how to easily work with him on a daily basis during the course of our normal routine.Sep 25, 2017Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I always participate in numerous seminars hosted by reputable organizations and industry leaders through out the year. Beside seminars, I am always looking to further my training abilities by participating in rigorous continue education.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Ask as many questions as you would asking your child's teacher. Dog trainers come from various background. Not only it's important to find a competent trainer, it's also essential to find one who trains in a humane way.
