Julia’s Client Reviews

“Copper was such a ‘fraidy cat’ when we started and he was doing so well our last class. I sure wish we could have made the very last class. Rescue Copper needed this class so much. There was so much kindness for my 8 year old rescue. Things were slow for us since he didn’t know other dogs and people. It really was the perfect atmosphere for him.” -Susan S. and her Miniature Schnauzer Copper reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia

“Julia is so supportive and enthusiastic. The class environment and location were convenient.” -Cheryl F. and her Cairn Terrier Gwendolyn reviewing the Canine Good Citizen prep class with  Julia

“Julia was a great teacher and gave great tips and advice. She kept the class moving at a good pace. She obviously is great at what she does and is passionate about dogs and training them well. I especially appreciated that she took pictures for us the last day and emailed them to us – so thoughtful and appreciated!” – Laura H. and her Cavachon Tucker, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia

“I was very satisfied with the amazing talents of the trainer. She is able to keep up with everything, for everyone individually and keep the class on track and on time. Able to overcome obstacles with practical solutions that worked great. I am actually really excited to Enroll Eddie in another course, and see how far we can go together. Hands down the best dog obedience program I have seen. I am very thankful to you for the wonderful lessons!” -Amber M. and her Pug Eddie reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia

“I was not able to attend many classes but got a lot of info from the class printouts and instructor. Class was enjoyable and Julia was very kind in always showing us techniques that would help us and our pets. I felt that she took the time to help us all on our problems we were having with our pets.” -Brenda T. and her Yorkshire Terrier Ellie, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with  Julia

“You did great.” – Cassie D. and her Border Collie Yuki, reviewing their Canine Good Citizen Prep Course with  Julia

“Our dog, Griffyn, absolutely LOVED Julia!! I thought everything was done well. I liked the location, the attention to start and end times and everything else about the class. I’ve already referred another pet owner to the class!” – Sheryl B. and her Schnoodle Griffyn, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with  Julia

“Julia was great at keeping the pace of the class at the level of the slowest, but at the same time, kept everyone challenged. Not an easy thing to do! She did a great job at teaching the class, and the class is broken down/organized in a very good stepping stone manner/order. The hand outs each week were great, and tied in with the upcoming class.” – Ron C. with his Doberman Angel, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with  Julia

“Julia is the best! She is so patient with my quirky dog. She constantly praises and encourages him, and me, too! I don’t mind driving from Rochester to Kasson to attend her classes. She makes all the difference in my dog’s progress!” -Becky P. and her Dachshund/Rat Terrier cross Riley, reviewing their Door Manners class with Julia

“Love Julia!! I’ve made sure to sign up with her again! I really like Julia as a trainer and think I found the trainer for Cupcake!” -Brooke M. and her Morkie Cupcake, reviewing their Door Manners class with Julia

“Kapp, Julia, and Michelle are great instructors. They are very knowledgeable and made the class fun and educational. Jade and I are really enjoying K9 Nose Work!” -Denise K. and her Australian Shepherd Jade, reviewing their Beginning K9 Nose Work class with Kapp, Michelle, and Julia

“Good instructor, good experience for both myself and my dog. It was a great start!” -Barbara H. and her English Bulldog Nigel, reviewing their Beginning K9 Nose Work class with trainer Julia

Rosie

“Nosework was well worth the drive from the Twin Cities. The class was well paced, all the dogs had a great time. Rosie is much more efficient at using her sniffer.” -Lindsay K. and her Australian Shepherd Rosie, reviewing their Beginning K9 Nose Work class with trainer Julia

“This is our second class with Julia. She is always fun and prepared for class. She always seeks to help us with our dog as an individual!” -Chelsey Z. and her Australian Shepherd Penelope, reviewing their Beginning K9 Nose Work class with trainer Julia

“This was a great class experience for both the pet and the owner. Nice change from other classes, in this one the pets get to shine with no stress just doing what they do naturally.” – Tammi J. and her Labradoodle Jazzy, reviewing their Beginning K9 Nose Work class with trainer Julia

“Julia was patient with all students no matter if they were the 2 legged or the 4 legged. She was quick to respond to when the humans were training properly, and had great tips for where improvement could be made. She was very informative and enthusiastic! You could tell that Julia wanted all her students to succeed and get the most out of the class as they could! She did great at keeping everyone focused in class. Making adjustments for the 4 legged pups that were shy and getting them acclimated to being in class. It was a great beginning class and Julia was amazing!

“This was a great starter class for my puppy. It really helped me realize her potential. Being a vet tech, I knew many of the basic techniques, but it was great to have a trainer reassure the proper technique and to “rid” the training of negative reinforcement that I had been doing. JJ seemed to respond very well not only to training, but to Julia as well. Although JJ was very distracted during class and did not show well how much she had learned, it was great to have her in a situation to train where she was distracted and have trainer available to assist.” -Teresa D. and her Chihuahua JJ, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia

“Julia was great at understanding that my goals for the class weren’t necessarily to get Gilly to sit, lie down, stay, etc., but were more to give Gilly exposure to other dogs and people. I appreciated Julia’s insights and suggestions and feel we made good progress with Gilly being able to be in closer proximity to the other dogs as time went on. Thanks, Julia!” -Jacque D. and her German Shepherd cross Gilly, reviewing their Beginning Obedience with Julia

“The class plan was great. We had a great time and all of our questions were answered right away in the class. Julia kept the class interesting and moved along ending on time. On a 1 to 10 I give her an 11. Everything was great.” -David J. and his Labrador Retriever Sadie, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia

“Julia was an awesome teacher who gave us group time as well as individual time to keep everyone on track. I enjoyed working with her and would love to continue to work with her! She was organized, good pace, made it individualized to meet the dogs needs, and friendly.” -Maranda H. and her hound cross Gus, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Julia
