Great training. Our dog is already responding after one session!Oct 13, 2019Verified
We had our first session with Maj today and she was incredibly knowledgable about how we could work together to achieve our dog training goals.Jul 15, 2019Verified
Maj did a wonderful job of getting my wild child (Grizzlie) to calm down and listen to her. We are looking forward to her next visit and working with her to transform our pup into a well trained dog.May 19, 2019VerifiedMajyk Paws Dog Training's reply
Thank you for the opportunity and privilege of working with and meeting such a great family and furbaby. It’s my pleasure to help you achieve your goals and guide your pup into a polite, stable and well mannered dog. I’m looking forward to to our next visit and am excited to see the progress you’ve made! Keep up the great job!
My dog Vernon and I had our first session with Maj today, and it went great. I am new to training a dog so I am in need of a lot of help. Luckily for us I found the right lady for the job. I highly recommend her to anyone needing guidance with their fur baby. She was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. You can tell she loves working with dogs, and Vernon loved her. I am looking forward to working with Maj again in the future to train both myself and Vernon. ;)Dec 6, 2018Verified
Maj has an amazing understanding about animals (people too)! She works hard at creating a success story for the owner and dog. I appreciate all her suggests and willingness to work around my schedule! I highly recommend Maj for your training needs!Jun 4, 2018VerifiedMajyk Paws Dog Training's reply
Thank you for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful woman and a lovely dog and hope to continue our journey towards the calm, stable and obedient companion you’ve been working towards. I’m looking forward to seeing you both again and hope you’re having a great start to your week.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have base rates for various training programs and issues that need addressing but being self employed I have the ability to modify my prices in order to make my services available to as many good hearted, committed dog guardians as possible. For example, elderly or disabled people on limited income who wholeheartedly desire to help their furbaby/furbabies, fire survivors waiting for Insurance claims etc. who have full and loving hearts but not as financially able to spend money that’s not budgeted for. If I can keep a lovely pup in a loving home by offering some of my time on me to solve the issues or struggles, that is worth more than a paycheck and makes my choice of profession is the most rewarding job I can think of.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I generally offer a free consult to possible new clients if a phone conversation hasn’t given the requesting person the info and confidence that I’m the right person to help teach them and their furbaby to better communicate, address unwanted behaviors while offering alternative choices enabling the dog to self correct which tends to lead to quicker and more solid learning and a more stable feeling dog due to their need to understand rules and expectations. Dogs thrive with structure and consistency and I’m more than happy to meet with the members of the household, discuss challenges and goals and techniques to arrive at the results you’re working towards.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I’m a Certified Dog Obedience Trainer and behaviorist with over two decades of experience with volunteering at shelters, rescue groups and fostering dogs who needed more help adjusting to their new environment and overcoming challenges their former life presented them. I also worked my way from entry level job to training and managing the daycare at a highly regarded kennel/ training facility in Santa Rosa due to my dedication, commitment and perfect safety record for all groups I supervised. I feel like working with 100-150 dogs/day has given me a broader overview and experience with a multitude of different dogs, breeds and living situations.
