Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!

Typically I don't post feedback for services like this. However, after the incredible training Lindsay provided for my 2yr old Aussie, Sebastian, I felt compelled to write something. I heard really great things about Loose Leash through a friend of mine and figured I would give them shot since prices were better than dog training facilities I researched around town and Lindsay was CPDT certified. I brought in my dog because I was having trouble with him getting too excited and jumping on people coming to my house, and he wouldn't come when called. Within minutes of working with Lindsay, she had my dog sitting next to me instead of jumping all over the place. Not long after that she had him coming from across the yard when called. I was amazed at how quickly Lindsay got my dog to respond! After a few more training sessions, Sebastian was a completely different dog! I highly recommend Loose Leash.

Rebecca has come to my home many times to take care of my black lab. She is punctual, respectful, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and fantastic with my senior dog who has cancer. I trust Rebecca to properly give all required meds plus a lot of extra hugs and kisses. She even volunteered to walk my baby without me asking her to -- she goes the extra mile because she loves the animals. And I love the photos she sends (again, on her own initiative). I just can't say enough good things about Rebecca and how great she is with both animals and people!

Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !

Understanding your dog and being able to clearly communicate your intentions are of equal importance to the training process. If your communication is clear to your canine friend .. I will teach you to identify temperament, and nerve, your dog process. You will also learn how. Motivation attracting a dog by providing something he wants which stimulates him into the desired response. Providing something the dog likes, or causes pleasure, while its performing a specific action.= positive reinforcement

I truly enjoy and love working with animals in ANY capacity. During my medical rehab in the service I received a lot of visits from the therapy animals while I was an inpatient and I don't know if I would have made it if not for the unwavering ,constant joy I would get from the therapy animals and all they did was lick me and put a smile on my face!

I am particularly drawn to overnight care and am a little more cost effective and also have childcare experience which means I have experience with safety, complex problem solving and teaching. Also, my enjoyment of walking in different surroundings means the dogs might get a little extra strolling around.
