Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.

Susan has been handling and training our dogs for the breed ring since 1994. During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.) She has helped us evaluate litters as well. She has always been generous not only with her skills but her knowledge. We look forward to continuing to work with her.

I highly recommend Dee to anyone looking for a wonderful, compassionate, hands on trainer for their dog. Dee knows her stuff. It is all positive reinforcement and she offers a variety of methods and tools. She looks at each dog individuality and caters to their needs. I have been to several trainers in the area but Dee is by far the best. I have done group classes as well as privates and have never been disappointed.

After 25 years of training Doberman and other breeds, several people had noticed how obedient these dogs were and had asked for my help with training their dogs. All these years, I was just training my own dogs and helping others. I had thought about becoming a professional dog trainer but just continued to help others; then years later, two different situations, both having rescue dogs came up and, in one case, I heard that they were going to put their dog down. I had, reading this, understood that this was an aggressive dog that was biting family members as well as their other dog among several other complications. The next day, I came to help in this emergency situation and had then come to realize that there is a need for my dog training services. Now, I'm charging for my dog training and counseling services, as I come with several years of vast experience in training dogs and helping individuals and families with their dogs of all ages. I do have experience, from puppies to adult dogs, in several breeds. I have worked with basic training/obedience training and from simple to advanced tracking, working dogs as well as guard dogs. I have coached on several simple tricks that many wanted their dogs to learn. There are many basic training methods as well as training tools, and each breed is different, so they learn and understand differently. Some are slow learners; some are fast, and some are easily distracted. Others are more eager to learn. Every dog is special and unique with different abilities, and it is up to you to bring this out and challenge him, but first you must understand your dog at hand. I am training dogs in and outside of the family home and business. You will learn how to understand your dog as your dog will learn to understand you. This will give a happier, comfortable relationship, and the earlier you get your dog into training, the better. Look at it as habits; there are good habits, and there are bad habits, and you know the saying, "Habits are hard to break." Well, with a good dog trainer, these bad habits can be changed to different positives, and a good trainer will explain in detail or give you some different options. I offer the following: * Tools You will learn the difference between the tools and what will best suit your dog for the situation at hand. I use the basic to advance training tools. Remember, every breed is different as are all the situations, so the right tools for your dog will make the difference. * Tips and tricks Every trainer has his/her methods in training and his/her reasons. I look at several details beyond the dogs, and along the way, there are tips and tricks that you will learn to speed up the training; in most cases, it takes a bit of understanding of your dog. Most of these tips and tricks are very simple; however, some are advanced. Some might depend on how far you want to go with your dog training. I use the three-stage training. * Puppy, basic and advanced, includes the following: - Puppy - Barking - Biting - Jumping - Temperament - Crate training - Come, sit, stay, and heal Basic training completes the first stage of all the above training and a preparation for advance training. Advanced training includes the following: - Service Dog - Seeing Eye Dog - Danger Alarm - Rescue Dog - Warning Dog - Working Dog - Guard Security - Tracking Dog - Sports and Agility - Hunting Dog - Obedience - Pack Training For three-language training, all training is explained and shown in three different languages for your dog to understand and you to communicate. I teach many different tricks. Many simple tricks can lead to an advanced training. There are so many tricks out there; some will amaze your friends, you and your family. The following are a few tricks: - Tracking Tricks - Silly Tricks - Parlor Tricks - Useful Tricks - Jumping Tricks - Agility Tricks - Circus Tricks - Magic Tricks - Kids Tricks - Emergency Tricks - Tricks for Kids and many more For tools, I teach what to use and what not to use. Situations are all different. I use adjustable whistles. There is a free downloadable. I recommend remotes. Remember, do not take advice from just anyone. You can look at training like a chess game; there are strong moves and weak moves, which lead to good and bad habits. Being consistent with your commands and following the same patterns, such are when to eat and when to go out, your dog will know. Keep it simple as it is best for your dog to understand. I like to keep commands short and direct to the point, and you must be consistent. Patience and understanding every breed is different in situations and environments. Hopefully, some of these tips help you, and I wish you the best in relation with your best friend.
