I’m very impressed with how far my dogs have come in the sessions we’ve had with Kathy. Even after the first visit - it was like two completely different dogs. I️ never would have thought they’d be in the same room together or even be able to go for walks together - but they’re doing it. Kathy’s always available to shoot a quick text too- even if it’s just a little question about something we should be working on or giving her an update on our progress - she’s just as genuinely excited. I️ love my dogs & it’s clear that Kathy does, too. 11/10 would definitely hire her again, if needed. Very knowledgeable- even with the two very different breeds I️ have (pug mix & German Shepherd plus a cat) - hands down would recommend to anyone.
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!
Tori is a friendly and knowledgeable trainer. She is currently helping us though some reactive dog issues with our German Shepherd. Thing are progressing well and Tori has been flexible in scheduling our training sessions. Her love of dogs is obvious and it really shines through in her training methods.
We brought our Samoyed dog when she was a puppy for training. Lindsey was great with her. Helping us teach the basic commands and giving suggestions to us to help with her.
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 .
Willie is an awesome trainer. No need for any other trainer. Ever.
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.
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.
