“The small class size meant that there was a lot of personal attention to both dog and handler. Both Laura and Sara knew us and our dog by name. They always had concrete advise for solving situational issues raise by those in the class. I like the approach with positive reinforcement. I had attended the opposite kind of training with choke collar and severe correction with our previous family pet, and this philosophy fits in and achieves the results in a humane way. Laura and Sara allowed time for questions – even with that initial wait for people to formulate their query. Class built on stepping blocks so that the dog (and handler) felt success in introduction of each activity.” – Maureen M. and her Labrador Retriever Sirius reviewing their Beginning Reactive Dog Rehab class with Laura and Sara
“Trainers made a great effort to have communication regarding individual dogs during class (even though it was a group class). This made it easier to determine how well I was doing with my dog, ask questions about behaviors I was experiencing, and get feedback if I was headed in the right direction.
“I had a great experience. Knowledge in the area of reactivity was very helpful. It is very useful in differentiating between a dog that doesn’t understand the task it is being asked to do vs. a dog that is in an excitable state and therefore is having trouble learning and executing tasks.” -Peggy N. and her Boxer Elsa, reviewing their Beginning Reactive Dog Rehab class with Laura and Carrie D.
“Laura and Carrie were very responsive. Experienced with reactive dogs. Able to provide feedback on how the dog was doing. The two trainer format is very helpful.” -Lori B. with her Tibetan Terrier Kitsi reviewing their Beginning Reactive Rehab with Laura and Carrie Davis
