Dog training type
Theresa is awesome and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to use positive reinforcement in training a pup! She traveled to our home and really helped us to understand our puppy! We look forward to working with her in group classes to continue molding our baby into a well behaved adult dog!Mar 14, 2019Verified
Theresa is an excellent dog trainer. She is very knowledgeable and loves dogs very much. She helps us to train our chocolate lab step-by-step. She always extend the class just for a better behavior. We work very well and can't wait for the next class.Oct 19, 2018Verified
I met with Theresa on Saturday, and will be going back this Saturday for another training session with my dog. She is patient, knowledgeable, reasonably priced and really focused on me during class. I really appreciate all the tips I've gotten so far, and I'm really looking forward to learning more.Nov 27, 2017
Great first training session. Terry was very knowledgeable and patient with my dog. He is already showing improvement. Can’t wait for our next session.Feb 6, 2018Verified
After about three months of solid searching in many places for a dog trainer that had the trifecta of belief in positive training, affordable/realistic prices, and a nearby location with a flexible schedule, we found Theresa! (Oh, also she texts and accepts Venmo. Bonus points for a busy dog mom!) 10 week old Lucy Gray flourished under the training in just one session and then came home to sleep through the night for a full 8 hours! If you believe in teaching your dog through positive methods, using love, and as you would a child, please drop your prong/choke collars and constantly yelling the word “no!” and get to Gone to the Dogs!May 25, 2018Verified
