Thank you so much, George! Abbey is such a wonderful dog I really enjoyed every moment with her. And you are a truly dedicated owner! I wish every pet parent were as caring.
Beth was great! She provided us with with many training exercises to continue what she started with our dog. She provided insight as to why he was acting the way he was. I’m so glad that we used her services, my entire family now knows what we need to do to make our dog the best dog.Sep 29, 2019VerifiedJoyful Dogs of Michigan's reply
Thank you, Mandie! As you know I'm now totally in love with all 3 dogs! And Moose mau be one of the sweetest "aggressive" dogs I've ever met! And what a kisser!
Has given some great advice on how to train dogs.Nov 15, 2019VerifiedJoyful Dogs of Michigan's reply
Thank you Patricia! Riley and Sammy have great things in store!
I rescued my dog, Donna, and the shelter said she was obedience trained. We quickly realized she was not. Having very little time to work with her myself, I turned to Beth and Joyful Dogs to help. Beth was very knowledgeable and helpful. In just a couple sessions, Donna was already behaving so much better. After her training was complete, she now follows basic commands and even wants to learn tricks. Thanks so much to Beth for her professional approach to training and her quality job!Aug 25, 2019Joyful Dogs of Michigan's reply
Thank you, Paul! Donna wil always be special to me because of her way of closing her eyes when she gives kisses! She was an easy girl to work with and you were terrific!
Still in early stages but making great progress. Love the trainer! She is very experienced and fun to work with!Oct 3, 2019VerifiedJoyful Dogs of Michigan's reply
I was so proud of you and Sunny when you told me she responded to your command when she chased the rabbit! You both are working hard and you're almost there!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing reflects decades of experience and the end result of my training; an extremely well-trained dog. Spending money on training and ending up with a dog that isn't properly trained is a huge waste of your time and money.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start with a free, in-depth phone consultation then an initial meeting with the dog. During the phone consultation I learn about your dog, discuss your training goals, and answer questions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been training for more than 40 years and pride myself on keeping abreast of the latest methods and trends. I may not use every method but I ensure that I'm aware of them so I can offer the most effective training for your dog.
