I have a corgi puppy, and we did 7 private training sessions. We loved the individualized attention and personalized training plan. My corgi is just under a year old. She had issues with running away, barking when given a command, and just being too stubborn. We have broken all of those issues and she is doing great. She will now come and sit by my feet when called. I would recommend this training to anyone, no matter what doggy issues you're having. Angela is kind and extremely patient.Feb 17, 2014
Angela has trained our four dogs. She is outstanding. Our boys are happy, confident, and have great manners - all of which we owe to Angela. They continue to spend time with her periodically to keep their best manners. We send everyone we know to her.Feb 12, 2014
- What types of customers have you worked with?Our most popular program is our puppy Head Start. It gives busy puppy owners a better mannered puppy without having to attend weekly classes.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?16 week old labradoodle, Jacob, would bark, cry and bounce around in his crate. His owners were looking for help to teach him to settle down and accept going into his crate plus some basic manners. After our 10 day board and train program Jacob would rest quietly in his crate, was listening to his owners and was much easier to live with.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Not all training is the same. The profession of dog training is filled with many different approaches to the same goals. You may have heard of some of these.. Clicker training, positive reinforcement, remote collar training, lure and reward, shaping, traditional leash and collar training. Some of these approaches may be more effective than others for your dog. Find a trainer who is open minded about your training needs and who is well educated on the different training tools available to you.
