I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased we were with the training our Great Dane, Viola, received from Well Mannered Dog Training Charleston.
I decided to use the Well Mannered Dog Training services after some research on the internet. I wanted to start the training for Viola as soon as possible but she was too young to get into the classes that were offered at certain places in Charleston. I thought the training in the home would be perfect. She would be comfortable in our home and would have the one on one training that I wanted.
Tanya did a great job with us. Viola loved to see her walk in the door. Soon after Tanya arrived for the days lessons, Viola did figure out that she was there for school and not fun! Every week Tanya came prepared to teach us the next lesson. She made sure we understood the reasons the way they were done and that we practiced with Viola at least 30 minutes a day. A great example is when we tried to walk Viola on a leash. I wanted to take her for walks but as soon as I put the leash on her, she threw a big hissy fit and sounded like we were killing her! Tanya said it was normal and to keep the leash on her and keep trying. In less than two weeks we were walking her around the neighborhood, showing her off! She loves her walks now! We knew that we had to make sure Viola was taught who the boss was! She is going to be a big dog and we have to make sure we have control over her. She learned quickly and still does the tricks and commands that she learned with Tanya. I was very impressed with her!
I would recommend Well Mannered Dog Training Charleston to anyone with a dog, young or old.
We recently went to the group dog class at Hampton Park and learned you can teach an old dog new tricks. Viola was the youngest one there, but there was a 9 year old golden retriever that seemed to be an excellent student!
Thank you so much for your services and we will recommend you to friends and neighbors!
