Dawn is an excellent trainer. Our dog learned a lot but my wife and learned way more. She is always on time and will text us if she is running a few minutes late. Both ours love her and I am sure yours will too.Sep 25, 2019VerifiedDawn Hoppe K9's reply
Thank-you for the review, I appreciate that & will make sure that Kessi is an outstanding Service Dog for Suzanne
We scheduled our first appointment for Saturday at noon. We waited 10 minutes before giving her a call to ensure she found our house okay. We never received a call, text or email that she may be running behind or if she wasn’t going to show. This was an inconvenience to us as we rearranged our Saturday. We waited almost 45 minutes to hear from her before we decided to go about our day. We have decided to move forward with another service. In response to Dawn response 5/15/19: Hi Dawn, Thanks so much for getting back to us today. From your response, it seems that you were in heavy traffic trying to get to us on Saturday. My husband and I are very understanding, but from your text to us today, it seems that the issue/accident was your phone dying and you had to go to the Walmart in Ormond Beach, FL. Per your text it took 2 hours to get fix. We would have reconsidered your services, however, we were scheduled for an appointment on Saturday 5/11/19 and we are just hearing from you today Wednesday 5/15/19. Due to the days it took you to respond to us, this is considered horrible service. I’m sure you’re a great trainer, but customer service is important. My apologies you feel that we inconvenienced you by you providing the services you offer (in-home dog training). I’ve attached the screenshots for your review as your response to my review seems misleading. I’m a very honest person and can only provide an honest review. In the meantime, I’m happy you got your phone fixed and I wish you all the best! You’re messages sent to us today 5/15/19: Thumbtack response from Dawn: I'm sorry to have missed our appointment ; however my phone died & I was at the Walmart in Ormond Beach for 2 hours trying to get my phone fixed ; I have not been able to contact you & yes , perhaps something did happen to me that prevented me from contacting you; such as an accident ! Text message response from Dawn: Hello LaToya , I'm sorry for any inconvenience that I caused you , however I had circumstances which were beyond my control , being at the Walmart in Ormond trying desperately to get a new phone was more than frustrating for me as well ! Thank you for your understanding; I could not retrieve your voicemail because my phone died! Please consider my side of the story ! After training dogs for 25+ years, I understand your frustration & inconvenience but perhaps you should consider mine as well ; thank you for your time 😁May 15, 2019Verified
Dawn has been very accommodating to our family & puppies needs. She is very knowledgeable and has a calm demeanor while training our German Shepard Puppy, which was important to us being he is just a puppy. We plan on our puppy Moose to become a Therapy dog and excited Dawn has a great amount of experiences in this area of training. We did our research and found Dawn to be the most fitting for our puppy "Moose"Mar 20, 2017VerifiedDawn Hoppe K9's reply
Thank-you so much for the review. Yes, Moose is a very special guy, I look forward to watching him grow. Type your response to this review.
Dawn has a great deal of knowledge about dog. She pays great attention to detail when training. She has improved our dogs behavior greatly and we are especially appreciative.May 15, 2019
I have had the pleasure over the last four years to meet and work with Ted, Dawn and RJ Hoppe. They are so dedicated in the marvelous work that they do. I know first hand, the quality, dedication, love, values, and pride that they all put into their work. They helped us from the moment we obtained my son's puppy "Tank", all the way to his training as my son's service dog. I highly recommend the Hoppes for anyone looking to get the best dog for their family, for protection, or for service. Just all around 100% happy! If you want the best all around-go see Ted, Dawn and RJ Hoppe! You will not be disappointed!Oct 14, 2014Dawn Hoppe K9's reply
Thank-you, we hope to see Z again & let us know if we can ever do anything for you in the future. We appreciate your business.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I will work with you to help accomplish your goals and try and fit in your budget , my pricing is very close to other professional trainers , often less
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Dawn Hoppe K9 will do an evaluation to set a custom program for you & your dog . Each training system is unique & my 20 years working with dogs will make your experience with Dawn Hoppe K9 first class!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Dawn Hoppe K9 has successfully trained advanced obedience & behavior problems for over 20 years! I will help point you in the right direction by answering questions. We are happy to help our clients. I also offer professional training here with private lessons or in board training. A lot of our clients use both in board & private Handler lessons to accomplish their goals. It is always true that early training or imprinting work will eliminate behavior problems before they start which will be much more positive for the dog & the owner.
