Her knowledge of dogs and their wiring astounds me while also makes perfect sense (once explained). My fearful 8 year old has grown so much in the weeks of training she has received to date. I look forward to seeing what she is capable of as we continue with the training.Jul 21, 2018Verified
We had experience with Clare! She was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful with training our young puppy! Would definitely recommend her services to anyone in need of dog training!Oct 10, 2018Verified
Clare is the best! She has been working with our seven month old golden retriever ever since she got home at 10 weeks old. Clear is a fantastic, patient, fun teacher. Half the battle is training my husband and I and she does a good job doing that, too! She goes above and beyond by meeting us at the Pet Depot for a special swim lesson and checks in on our progress throughout the week. I would highly recommend K9 College Dog Training!Aug 29, 2018Verified
We hired Claire to help train our two Border Collies. Our main concerns were dealing with our 3 month old puppy's separation anxiety, and being able to walk our older dog in heavy traffic areas. She listens to our concerns and is patient with us and our dogs. She makes things easy to understand because of the years of experience she has. After the first session, our very hyper dogs seemed to better understand the rules around the house and we had a better knowledge of how to communicate with them.Oct 31, 2017
Clare is a great trainer! She knows exactly what she is doing and I feel confident working with her. My one year old German shepherd is already showing progress after he first 2 visits! Thank you Clare !Oct 30, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge by the hour. I do offer 6, 8, and 16 weeks of training with payment in advance and 6 months to complete the training.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I contact the owner by phone and talk about the main issues that they dog(s) are having and what is the most important thing(s) that the owner wants to correct. I ask several questions about the dog, the current feeding habits, daily exercise, etc. Then put a plan together for that dog. We start to implement the plan on the first visit. The owner gets homework to work on until our next appointment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been training dogs since 1985. I have put AKC conformation, obedience, tracking and rally titles on my dogs. I have put an UKC conformation title on my 12 month old Aussie and a Herding Certificate Title on sheep. I attend workshops regularly on new training methods, competition obedience, herding and listen to audio conferences. I am currently enrolled in Susan Garrett's Recallers online program. I attended the Top Dog Obedience Workshop in June 2017, will be attending one in August 2018 and attend weekly obedience classes. I am currently competing 3 Aussies in Obedience and Rally for 2017-2018.
