About

"A Dog Spot" is a small dog boarding facility that is all about dogs. The kennel is located in the lower walk out level of our home and has been designed with a dog's comfort in mind. We start with a home-like atmosphere. We have a large recreation/family room for dogs to enjoy giving them a chance to get out of their kennel throughout the day. There is furniture for them to lounge on and big windows that look out into the yard. We painted the walls blue and yellow because dogs can see those colors. We figured if it's a place for dogs they should be able to see it too. There is a large-fenced yard that can be used for running and playing or just strolling and sniffing. We have in-floor radiant heat through out the kennel area. The floor is non-slip for guests that need a little extra traction due to age, injury, or disease.

We contacted Four Winds Dog Training because we’d had trouble with our female Klein Poodle who spent her first 5 1/2 years as a breeder dog. Although she was not physically abused, Marlo clearly had unpleasant experiences, particularly with men, leaving emotional scars and causing unpredictable behaviors. The worst has been aggressiveness towards men in certain situations - including one biting incident. Shahar of Four Winds has worked methodically with us and Marlo in our home, teaching us to use clicker training and positive reinforcements. Shahar is firm in her guidance but yet sensitive and flexible as appropriate. She listens to owners (and Marlo!) and works to find the best outcomes for a situation while staying true to her own experience and training. We are currently attending her 6-session group class to hone our clicker training skills. Marlo responds positively to the clicking sound which often brings a treat, after she successfully follows a command. Shahar also encourages intermittent rest and play periods so as not to tire the dogs. Marlo clearly enjoys this kind of training. Before Shahar’s training began, Marlo was steadily getting worse. Although Marlo’s behaviors tend not to change quickly (in spite of her high intelligence), we have seen steady improvement. We are very happy with the results.

Mikaela is truly "the dog whisper!" She understands your dog, even more... she GETS your dog. She listens to your concerns, and your training goals. She makes a plan, and then miraculously you end up with the best behaved dog on the planet! Almost a year after training my dog still sees Mikaela and runs to her, and just snuggles her legs. I recommend Mikaela for all of your dog training needs, she is quite simply the best... no hyperbole!!!

About

With humane, science-based training methods, we will decide what you want your dog to do instead of focusing on what you don't want him doing. I am committed to using only humane, science-based training methods. My goal is to provide you with the tools you need to enjoy the dog you already love. Why use pain or fear-based methods when there are other options? When I work with a dog I go at their pace, watch for a goofy smile and wait for the dog to let me know when he is having fun. I hope to someday see the dog training industry say goodbye to scary and painful training tactics.

Mary is more than a dog trainer. She's my mentor for all things related to dogs. She works with a deep awareness of what it takes to bring people in alignment with their dog's intelligence, emotions and breed. The more she shares the more I want learn, and I am grateful.

We have a climate-controlled facility that offers large kennels for those multiple dog families that we love, along with two outdoor enclosed areas to run and play under the pines or just relax by the stream! We guarantee TLC and nightly massages to all dogs. IRIE Kennels is a "pawsome" time for your pooch!
