I wanted to thank you for the really wonderful training sessions - they have been extremely helpful. Not only do we feel more in control and knowledgeable about dealing with him, but Simon's behavior has improved also. It's been a tremendous relief on me and my family because we love him so much!
"I am really pleased with the results..."
I wanted to say thank you for all the positive training, patience, knowledge and fun that you gave to me and Twinkle. We had a great time in the Beginner's and Intermediate Classes and all the tools you gave us really work. Twinkle responds well to your techniques and I am really pleased with the results. Coming to class is a lot of fun and Twinkle loves it! I especially enjoy the fact that the continuous training enforces the dog and owner bonding and interaction that makes for a nice dog.
"You'll be seeing us for years to come!"
In February 2005, our Golden Retriever Gracie, just a little puppy of 10 weeks old, started her education with the J9s K9s Puppy Head Start Program. We have been enjoying classes together ever since! We just wanted to brag a bit, if we may. Recently we took a trip to the Sierras to let Gracie experience snow for the first time. We took her off leash just to let her play. Now for the bragging part: she heard a dog barking across an ice cold creek with snow banks on either side, and started running right toward it. "Home, Gracie, home!" (her emergency recall word), we yelled. She stopped, turned, and ran back to us! Much better than the freezing consequences. She has also become quite the little "ham". Loves applause (and treats) for any and all the tricks she has learned in class. The "handkerchief thief" always gets lots of smiles.
"Thanks for a wonderful experience!"
Hi Janine - just a note to tell you how much Tina enjoyed her beginning training class and her private session with you! She is doing so much better already - she is slowly but surely starting to pick up some toys and play with them! And is exhibiting a markedly friendlier attitude when encountering new people, I am pleased to report.
