We noticed a huge improvement after the first session. Our dog continues to develop skills each week and Donna is wonderful with our dog and myself. Teaching and training me so that I can continue to work with our dog between sessions. This is the first time I have done dog training and will use Donna in the future with any new additions to our family.
I met her at her house with my two Labrador Retriever dogs and two children in tow. I had originally asked about my five-month old puppy for training and ended up boarded my adult one too. She was personable, easy-going and obviously enjoyed animals. She had her own dogs and cats, along with other boarded dogs. Using gates, she kept the dogs usually fenced in the clean tile-floored kitchen space. She used treats, lots of dog toys, large crates, leash-training and sent pictures frequently. While the puppy was young for serious training, he did come back better mannered towards the older dog (think of it as two siblings), better house-broken, less chewing, less impulsive. My children have enjoyed trying to maintain the tricks he learned while at her house for two weeks. Surprisingly, my older older dog whom I thought hated cats, appeared to get along fine with her cats. I would use her services again.
She is very nice and good to the dog. My dog gets better in some part. We learn some games and how to train. I think the dog really likes it too.
I have worked with Kass training my dogs and have observed her working with other client's dogs and have found Kass to be patient and fair. Her method of teaching helps build confidence in both the handler and dog.

We called Best in Breed Dog Training the week after we rescued Nellie when she was 13 weeks old. Found under a car, she was scared, hungry and really wanting to be loved. Calling Chris was the best decision we ever made after taking Nellie in to our home because he taught us the proper way to raise and train a dog. With Best in Breed we were taught simple and effective training tools that helped Nellie become part of our pack. I really think EVERY dog owner should train with Best in Breed!

As a nurse, I saw patients who had sustained injuries related to dogs, from falling down the stairs or tripping over their dog's leash. I also saw unhappy dogs that displayed unstable behavior due to lack of leadership direction in their lives. I feel I can make a difference as a "change agent", helping people who want a balanced happy life with their dog. Where did you go to school?
