We had Kathy stop over to assist with the "resource guarding" that our husky was doing. She is a very friendly dog, except when it comes to situations that she wants to dominate or "win" in. Kathy gave us tips, shared her thoughts, and mentioned tools to use to prevent this from happening. Kathy tried out her tactics on my dog, and my her behavior has so far been outstanding. Just within this one session, we have seen progress. We are going to keep up with Kathy's advice, and hope that we won't have to call her back to help with this further. Although, we are hoping to use Kathy in the future for further obedience training and agility. Thanks Kathy!!
Danielle was very knowledgeable about dogs and training. She had a good understanding of why our dog was acting the way he was. Definitely recommend!
I needed help with obedience training for my new puppy and I am so thankful for Tori and calling all dogs the experience was wonderful, the classes are reasonably priced and well worth it!!! I would highly recommend them!!!!
Lindsay was very informative and very helpful when working with my dog. He was hard to train with certain tasks, but she made sure she kept on him and he managed to learn with dedication and obedience. Literally any question I had she knew the answer, and if she didn't she would find out and let me know the next day. She was on time for every training, and she truly cares about the animals. She is a friendly person who is understanding if things come up. I have recommended her before and I will continue to do so. I've never met someone so good at training dogs than her. Keep up the awesome work!
Sarah is an absolute wonder. She is a certified dog behaviorist who worked with my cairn terrier puppy. Before she came we called the puppy Devil Dog. Sarah put a huge amount of thought and brought a great amount of expertise into figuring out to help our family and our dog live happily togerher. I feel like we have a new dog. I can't find words to recommend Sarah highly enough. She is the best there is and you will not go wrong in hiring her. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough!
Kathy & her staff are vary good. I put pit bull in puppy kindergarten & beginner obedience training. My dog is great with people & loves to be around other dogs. Money & time well spent. I highly recommend ALL DAWGS ACADEMY. Wayne
I just realized that 10 years has passed since I wrote a review of Susan and Pawsitive Experience. Time passes, puppies grow up, and some have even passed on .... but through all those many years, Susan has remained an amazing advocate, trainer, and friend who cares deeply about nurturing the relationship between people and their dogs so they can all live "happily ever after". She truly wants the best for all concerned. I have known her with my own dogs since 2003 and have observed her with many others through the years. She is always there to speak for the dog and help people understand the canine messages that elude them and help them build the positive bond with their dog that will last a lifetime. Her approach is positive, individualized, honest, direct, and humorous in teaching both the dog and the person, and I have really valued learning from her. Over the years, I have participated in her weekly happy hour where the dogs play together and also in her training classes. It has truly been a great place to learn and share with my dogs in the beautiful country setting of Pawsitive Experience. A great example that demonstrates what Susan has created comes from my first meeting with her at a birthday party for one of her wonderful Shiloh Shepherds. Not knowing what to expect, I found not only her own dogs there, but a total of 100 dogs, all playing happily off-leash. I counted them multiple times - there were 100! There were lots of fun activities for all the dogs ranging from agility to Canine Good Citizen testing, delicious food, and of course, the companionship of all those other dog lovers and their dogs. What I truly found amazing that day, and remains vivid in my mind even after all these years, was that 100 dogs could play together for 3 hours and get along without any issues ~ really, I watched them all ! No issues. These were the dogs of Susan's client's and friends. It was very clear to me that anyone who could create a harmonious dog environment like that, clearly knew what she was doing. Her cat wasn't even phased by all those dogs ! Most recently, Susan took in a dog from a friend of mine who died suddenly. She was in need of a lot of tlc and support, yet Susan took her in without hesitation and made her one of her own and gave her the care and acceptance she needed. She has always taken in rescue dogs needing someone to care and understand them and has given them a second (or third or fourth) chance. She has been an angel to them all, and to me, too. I appreciate, beyond words, Susan and all she has done and continues to do on behalf of dogs and their people.
Karen Drumm did an excellent job training us as owners how to handle our dogs. My dog responded to every command he was tought. We highly recommend Harmony .
Great for obedience and socializing!
I started as a training client with my then 12 week old shepherd mix puppy. The training and trainers were absolutely amazing. We have attend every training program offered and now use all there services. This facility and staff is the best I've found by far. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and has extremely satisfying customer service. My dog jumps for joy anytime I say do you want to go visit Love your dog. As long as he is happy and seems loved which I know he is I'm happy.
Very professional, informative and comfortable handling all sized dogs. Derek worked great with one on one commands and behavioral correction. I left with confidence to maintain all of the progress made during the training!
My dog had some aggression issues towards other dogs, I was at the point of giving the dog up. Then I found wise k9 training online and at the end of training I had a completely different dog! Very happy with the results.
I love what I do, I have a good understanding how to read each dog.

I've always been very good with animals and grew up around them as a child. I've found that I'm able to train animals and have a connection with them that helps me understand the animals' needs as well as the owners. I've never done this professionally, but I am looking for a career change and know that I will be successful with any animals. I'm asked to help regardless of the animal or the specific problem(s) that are occurring.
I offer in-home dog training. We also have rescued canine companions up for adoption looking for there furever homes. Are you there new mommy and daddy? Adoption fee and application do apply.
