Great advice

Instructor Shannon and Christine, this podcast was so interesting, I never let my children stay with just anyone so, it is hard to imagine leaving our precious dog with a perfect stranger. Sometimes, I feel over protective but I can live with that especially if is means that the people and four legged babies in my life are safe and well cared for. Thank you for your insights, it makes me feel normal after all.

More please

This has been such a helpful podcast series. It’s a shame there aren’t more topics to listen to. Each episode is full of instruction and helpful hints for every level of training required.

So helpful

I discovered this podcast about 6 months ago. I live near Montreal otherwise I would absolutely have took classes at their school. I have a Black Russian Terrier puppy that is 6 months old now and is my 4th dog.
I had a Lab in my 20’s then 2 Great Danes that passed 2 and 3 years ago. Being 5’ tall and 100 lbs I obviously need to have well trained dogs and I love training and always want to learn.
This podcast is so full of good advices and information it’s been helping me so much with this puppy even though I go to classes every week.
Great Job Guys and if I ever move to Ontario I would definitely be one of your clients!!
