Mandy and her daughter are amazing! We took our dog for a 3 week stay and train and he came back much more behaved!! They took many photos and sent me video throughout the process. Afterward, they took time to go over everything they taught him and how to implement it in my home. Thank you!!Apr 27, 2017Verified
We have just begun puppy training but came away knowing this was a very positive experience for both the dogs and their owners. They let the puppies teach each other. What a concept! Amazing how well that works. There are several trainers around to help direct and instruct. We definitely recommend Clever Canine Dog Training.Sep 30, 2017
Great trainers! Really know and understand dogs. Very friendly!Jul 13, 2017Verified
My mini Aussie Toboe is just starting out with a combined agility/obedience menu of packaged lessons. The amount of time, hands on instruction, and quality facilities make Clever Canine an amazing value in terms of price. The lessons are fun, engaging, goal-oriented, and highly tailored for your specific needs. No more feeling like you're wasting money on group classes that don't even address your pup's specific concerns. I also personally connect with this training facility's philosophy concerning dog rearing, and its very important to find a trainer that understands what YOUR ideal future with your dog. My dog is essentially my child: I want him to be educated, know the boundaries of the world he lives in, and I want him to enjoy being my eternal companion. If you share similar ideals, this is the right trainer for you!Sep 12, 2017Verified
They're awesome!! They did an amazing job with my dog and welcomed him into their program and household as if he were their own. They made me feel very comfortable with taking him and keeping him for two weeks at their stay and train program. While he was gone they kept in contact with me, sending me pictures and videos showing his progress and how he was doing. They travelled to my house to first meet myself and Tyson and they also made the trip again when it was time to bring him home. Very professional and great people to work with. I will definitely be boarding Tyson with them and when I get another dog she will be going to Clever Canine for their stay and train program!May 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer group classes or private training, and we can even give you a huge head start with our ‘stay and train’ programs where your dog stays in a home environment for the initial training, which saves you from having to do the hardest part!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We initially like to discuss with our customer what they would like to get out of dog training. We discuss current problem areas and strengths and I do a preliminary assessment. Often, I give some trainer tips to help with immediate areas of concern. The next step involves either a free evaluation at our facility or, if that is not necessary, we schedule an appointment that works best for the customer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Between us we have trained under a well respected service/ therapy dog instructor for several years at the advanced level. Lizzie has her certification in Scent Training. Lizzie also has her Puppy Training Certificate from Karen Pryer Academy. I have my Clicker Training Certificate from Karen Pryer Academy. We are both currently enrolled in dog training continuing education courses. We also have several awards and certifications we have earned with dogs we have tested with, including: SPOT ON, Canine Good Citizen and Canine Good Citizen Advanced, TDI, and agility trials. Lizzie is an intern at a service dog agency as well.
