Just great! She provided a book recommendation. Appreciated her knowledge. I enjoyed the Nose Work class. I would take another class with Christie.” – Michele D. with her Shih Tzu, Java, reviewing their K9 Nose Work class with Christie Vereide

“This was such a fun class. Can’t wait to take another one. Love the challenge of new places to search. Christie always had something interesting for us to search. We learned to get more comfortable with various places to search. Christie is an excellent trainer. Insightful about what each team needs.” – LeAnn M. with her Shiba Inu, Crush, reviewing their Traveling Nose Work class with Christie Vereide

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from the class, but I really enjoyed it! Cris worked at my dog’s pace and was there to support us. Because she guided us to set Kinlee up for success, she did amazing by the second week and loved the game of nosework! Made the class fun and had us try new things.” – Kassidy M. and her dog, Kinlee, reviewing their Introduction to K9 Nose Work lessons with Christie Vereide

“She was kind, polite, and knowledgeable. The class content was great. My dog learned a lot, and I’m confident now in my own abilities to teach Nose Work outside of the class setting. I think the content was approachable, clear, and effective.” – Alexandra E. with her Hound mix, Lizzie, reviewing K9 Nose Work with Christie Vereide

“Christie was amazing. She took things at a pace that my dog was very successful at, and was supportive of not only my dog, but my dog and myself as a team.
