Andrew’s Client Reviews

“Good overall information, broad beginner information. Very nice to see the emphasis on veterinary handling and safe grooming practices.” – Siera B. and their Golden Retriever Rainier, reviewing their Puppy Class with Andrew Sticha

“Super positive, organized and calm. Very knowledgeable! Friendly and patient. We’ve been to several dog training places. You guys are our favorite!” Kelly T. with Nomi (Lab x Alaskan Husky) reviewing their Puppy Class with Andrew Sticha

“LOVE Andrew – and so does Simone (our pup). He is very patient, very encouraging, taught the class and training itself in a very simple to understand format, and had excellent ideas for our too-smart malamute who gets bored fast (especially when she’s caught on to whatever it is you’re trying to teach her). You can tell that Andrew is very invested in his training education, as well as the dogs he trains. I hope we can work with Andrew again at a later point!” – Bethany P. with Simone (Malamute) reviewing Beginning Obedience with Andrew Sticha

“Andrew made the class so fun. It was wonderful to experience his pure love of dogs! Exercises were clear and easy to carry out, especially with Andrew’s guidance. I have since implemented techniques I learned in class to help our dog Sasha feel ok about our son’s dog coming into our house was very helpful!” – Deb E. with Sasha (Australian Shepherd x Golden Retriever) reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Andrew Sticha

“I am super pleased with the program and Andrew’s ability to be flexible to what my specific puppy needed and my own abilities as a trainer. This was a great option for me at a very busy time to supplement what I was doing and really complimented my efforts. Leon has benefited tremendously from Andrew’s diligence in focusing on exactly what I identified as his supplemental needs and Leon loves working with him. Highly recommend both the program and Andrew as a trainer.” – Nicole W. with Leon (Doberman) reviewing their Canine to Five Program with Andrew Sticha

“I am impressed by how much more relevant and detailed the class and class materials are since I took my last dog to puppy class 16 years ago.
