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.
Great experience. Shared a lot of wonderful ideas for an extremely active dog. Benita is very attentive to the needs and always has a solution to a problem.
Phillips Command Dogs was excellent. Would refer Stephen Phillips to anyone with a dog that needs training. Very satisfied
Chris Velez is the most competent, knowledgeable, and reliable dog trainer there is! I have seen him work with a variety of breeds all of different personalities and behaviorial issues. He amazes me each time in his ability to quickly assess the dog's problem and correct it. He consistently gets a dog obeying him within minutes as he seems to have a magical connection with all canine. Not only that, but his demeanor and disposition with the human owners is equally excellent as he can easily teach them what needs to be done in order to maintain the correction. His attitude is outstanding...always with the motivation of helping others...not making money.
Very pleased! Taught me some tricks that I can personal do to help with my dogs behavior. As well as taught her the right way to go about meeting other dogs
