Dog training type
Excellent training, very knowledgeable on how to work with my dog. Bernie is so good with him. She really made a big difference with us on how to handle a big dog. Highly recommend Training with Heart.Sep 15, 2020Verified
Training with Heart and Cookies did a fabulous job with my dogs. They are two rambunctious Chiweenies that are my service dogs but were having some issues when they were not in jacket. She was not only able to see and identify these issues, she was able to teach them while training me of where the communication was getting lost. After 6 weeks, the difference in their responses and behaviors is are night and day!! I will use her again and she is well worth the time and investment.Jul 24, 2020Verified
My husband and I have absolutely loved our training journey with Berni! She is amazing! So helpful, and she knows what she’s talking about. She always has a listening ear and takes the time to answer any questions we have and we usually have a lot!! It’s been such a great experience seeing our dogs learn from this all! It is all a team effort and you as an owner will have to learn but it is so so worth it!!! She will be our fur-ever Trainer!!Jun 10, 2020Verified
So far Mrs. Bernie was the best by far! I already know that I want her to help me with my Bella! I messaged her late last night and some others and she was the only one that responded promptly! I also enjoyed her being able to answer all of my questions! I can't wait for Sunday! I will update this post after the first visit!Jul 19, 2020Verified
Very sweet and easy to talk to! She definitely knows her stuff and you can tell she genuinely enjoys it. It was a very laidback , informative , and pleasant training session. Would definitely use again !Jul 27, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to spend some time speaking with potential clients to get a good picture of what their concerns are, and what their expectations are for training. Then I can give them options for private training or group sessions based on what will give them the best result. If there is a behavior issue that needs attention, I work with both the client and their veterinarian to rule out medical concerns before beginning any course of training.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been training since 1994. I hold certification from Animal Behavior College, and am currently studying to obtain additional certification in behavior modification. I have been mentored by trainers in almost every area of training and have a broad knowledge of both mechanical training, and behavior modification.
