The Keene Pack has been very available to work with my difficult dog. We will continue to use them for a long time. We are satisfied and my dog loves them.Jan 2, 2017Verified
Rae Keene knows what she's doing. My 10 month old/90# sweet unruly Sheppard/Hound mix is a much better fur baby because of her instructions. We have 2 more weeks of basic training and I highly recommend her already!Nov 20, 2016Verified
Rae and team are #1. Mabel loves the long walks and Rae!Oct 13, 2016Verified
They know exactly what they are doing when it comes to dog training! Excellent customer service they got me started right away and all I had to do is give them a little bit of his intel on what I was looking for. Great experience overall!!Sep 19, 2016Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Two of our emplyees have certifications as dog trainers. Our owner and one of our staff was certified through Animal Behavior College as a dog trainer. Our Operations Manager is almost done her certification through Animal Behavior College as well. We also have the lead technician from Virginia Beach SPCA walking dogs for us. our final walker doesn't have formal training but she fosters dogs for Fur-Ever Home Rescue and boards dogs through Rover. All of our employees have a love for dogs and work hard to keep them happy.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?One trainer's advice or training method is not the "end all, be all". Not every method works for all dogs. A good trainer will explore different methods until the dog understands the task he/she is being asked to do. Don't be afraid to ask about a trainer's method. Do they use Positive reinforcement only, are they heavily reliant on equipment, some use lots of corrections or do they balance all three? Ask what tools they use and why they use them. What tools or equipment are you, as the owner comfortable with? Don't let a trainer bully you into using something your not comfortable with, there are many options, tools and methods to training a dog. Also owners should try to have a clear but realistic idea of what they want from their dog. For example, if you have a Jack Russell/Parson Terrier, you should not expect a dog that calmly lays around the house most of the day. A more realistic goal would be a obedient dog with a wide array of commands and tricks to keep their active mind and body from being destructive.
