Kayla and Randy did such an awesome job at educating us on how to communicate better with our pup. We saw a huge difference in just one session! Permalink

My husband and I have tried EVERYTHING. In person training to board and trains (which cost us a fortune) and nothing was working to train our miniature dachshund. We were struggling with him barking at every dog we saw while on walks and very bad separation anxiety as well as just some general behavioral issues like play biting and jumping. Within our first remote session with Marlene, we saw a change in Pepe. Everything they implement actually gets to the root of the issue rather than just creating a quick fix like other training programs we have tried. We were slaves to his treats to the point where he wouldn't do anything we asked unless the treat was in front of his nose. Now we don't use treats for training AT ALL! Within a few weeks, he was practically a different dog. Very obedient and easy to manage. We are still working through the separation anxiety but are already seeing improvement there. I was so skeptical as we had been burned with all our other training programs but could not recommend Marlene and her methods more if I tried! We are telling everyone we know who is struggling to train their dogs. If you are looking for methods that ACTUALLY work, this it it! Permalink

The trainers were amazing and made everything very easy to understand how it worked. I couldn't believe my eyes when we went outside and my dog acted so well behaved. Even after they left I knew what to do to handle him. I am so grateful to them, since it has now opened so many doors for us to be able to have the dog out with us acting so well behaved. I couldn't have done it without them. Permalink

Theresa is helping me with a heart worm positive, badly abused, terrified rescue and my other rescue that has been with me for a long time. Very responsive, helpful, and a great resource to have as I work through this process. Having her come to the house to see them in their natural surroundings makes all the difference! Permalink

Sheri, Hello! Thank you again! We are working daily and we had another successful squirrel encounter today and yesterday we were outside on our potty break and she saw a bicycle and didn't even flinch. I am very encouraged by Shelby's progress so far. We are working on breaking her of her nightly whining and it seems to be working so far. Brian is much happier about her behavior on her nightly walk as well. The stairs are very consistent now and I have started taking her down the second set as well and she did great there too. Thank you again! We are working hard to keep her focused! Permalink

Trainer note from Sheri : That is wonderful to hear Sara. I know it was a big concern that she was pulling you down, now you don't need to worry. Looking forward to seeing your progress at our next lesson.

Great day for Noelle, my dog, and me. I walked her this morning and we passed another dog and she did great with new training techniques! We will continue practicing and I know she will be like a new dog. :-) Permalink

Very happy with the first session. Simba caught on fast and Patrick was great in teaching me how to better speak to my dog and I can't wait to see what a better dog he becomes. Would definitely recommend for anyone having any type of issues. Permalink
