“Katie and Megan are awesome trainers! Being a new pet owner they were very understanding and patient with all my concerns and questions. My puppy, Dash, loved them! I enjoyed the report cards each week! Looking back I can see the progress Dash made. The trainers provided effective communication in meeting any concerns or questions I had. They helped me work through some issues with training. They not only helped train Dash, they helped train me as a new pet owner! I’ve learned so much about what it takes to have a happy home for me and Dash!
Thanks Katie and Megan for all your efforts and work with Dash (and me)! You’ve eased many of my fears of owning a pet and have provided a foundation for Dash and I too learn, love and be happy! Thank you!” – Jane M. and their Dachshund, Dash, reviewing their Puppy Camp: Puppy Prodigy program with Katie Kelly and Megan Cogswell
“I was disappointed when I learned the class was going to be taught online (not disappointed with Paws Abilities’ decision to do that, only with the situation). I thought my dog wouldn’t get much out of it [online class] because I thought it would only be productive having dogs in close proximity to mine. I was wrong! In some ways, I think he was better able to learn the skills without the stress of other dogs around. I liked the amount of time spent talking about each dog’s needs. It was fun to get to know the other dogs’ owners, and very helpful to hear the instructor’s advice on how to work with certain behaviors. The instructors’ understanding of dog behavior and creative training methods are amazing to me!!! And their methods work!!!” – Andrea N. and their Alaskan Husky mix, Takoda, reviewing their Beginning Focus & Control class with Shalise Keating & Megan Cogswell
“The homework and documentation were very helpful and I still refer back to it. He and I both learned so much and I get so many compliments on what a well-behaved dog he is! The trainers were great to work with and talk with. The follow-up at the end of the day was always nice! I haven’t had a puppy since I was 10 years old, and of course it’s more the parents that train at that age. I was so nervous about training and raising a good and well-mannered dog. Paws Abilities truly took the doubt out of the equation for me! I owe you a huge gratitude and have ended up with such a good boy!” – Anonymous, reviewing Puppy Camp with Katie Kelly, Margit Lovoll, Megan Cogswell, and Demian Smith
“Her (Jenna) love of dogs and passion to teach was obvious and appreciated. The use of partitions was new to us and felt very effective given our young boxer. The teamwork of Jenna and Megan was great.” Cindy D. and her Boxer, Autumn, reviewing their Beginning Obedience class with Jenna Kaliszewski & Megan Cogswell
