    Dawn is always helpful and willing to listen. Her understanding of the dog mind is uncanny. The relationship between my dog and I has come a long way since we started our journey together with Dawn.

    Every dog owner needs to have the back-up from a professional trainer especially when it a highly intelligent breed of dog is involved. I've had GSD for many years and did an OK job with them. Once I became involved with MonduoCu my dog world changed. My GSD has been made better by MondouCu.

    My dogs and myself have been fortunate to have had Dawn and Lori in our life for the past six years. They are both very knowledgeable and are willing to go above and beyond to make sure you and your dog have a strong bond and a healthy relationship. They are unique by having club training in a real environment so you and your dog can experience real life situations. They always make sure the dogs leave on a positive note. They have taught us so much and we are very blessed to have them in our life.

    mondoucu is a great group to belong to. Dog information that is shared about canine issues/training. You and your dog learn how to work together and develop a great relationship.

    This training group and individuals running the show have gone above and beyond expectations. They train well, have knowledge based on fact and experience and offer a great environment for learning. I would recommend this group to everyone i know with dogs and who are dedicated to having well behaved animals.

    I have worked with other trainers for almost 20 years. They taught me how to get my dog to "sit", but not much else. Dawn's level of experience, knowledge & understanding of dogs continually blows my mind. Every single week, I walk away with new information. Dawn dives into the "why" of the dogs behavior, and teaches the owner how to understand & communicate with their dogs at a deep level. Best money I've ever spent!

    Great experience! I am learning so much.

    I have learned so much from Dawn and have a much better understanding and relationship with my dog Dally. She demonstrates and uses stories and real life experiences to make it more understandable. Both Dally and I have grown and learned so much since we joined MondouCu Club and classes. Dawn is very knowledgeable and is excellent at explaining how and why in a way that is understandable. She is always willing to answer questions and is available whenever I have a question or need her any day of the week. Also, the people I have met through this training have been supportive, fun and overall great!

    Dawn is amazing! In such a short period of time she has helped my dog and I get over some pretty big hurdles. She has so much knowledge about anything from dog training to the dogs nutrition and is happy to share. Every time my dog and I have a training class we learn so much and she keeps us on our toes because at the end she will always ask us "What did you learn?!" My favorite thing about doing training with her is she's such an encourager! Sometimes I feel like I 'failed' but she always points out what my dog and I did well and helps us move along from there. We love her and are so thankful for all she does!

    I have gained so much understanding about my dog, and dog behavior and motivation in general, since I have been with MondouCu. My relationship with my dog has changed from me trying to “get” him to do something, to an ongoing communication between the dog and I, which includes deepened mutual affection and respect. Dawn brings her years of training and her intuitive understanding of dogs to every session. Highly recommend!


What types of customers have you worked with?
Obedience training, including puppy, group and private training as well as service dog and therapy dog training. We also have a club training program that is available to handlers and their dogs upon an invitation. For more information, please give us a call.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The biggest advise I can offer is to find someone who makes sense to you. If you and the trainer are not on the same page regarding training philosophy, you will not have the amount of success and your bond with your dog will not be as great as it could be.
