In July 2012, I received a text message with the photo of one of the most adorable puppies I’d ever seen. With nothing but skin on his bones, we brought Teach into our lives. He had parvo and after several days in the hospital and a few scares, he finally made the way to recovery. Teach is a lover and a cuddler, but he is also pretty strong for his compact nature, so I wanted to start working with him quickly. I asked friends about their training experiences and got a stellar recommendation for Allison’s team at Well Mannered Dog Training. I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve accomplished.
Allison has been an amazing resource for both Teach and me. Having her individual attention and answers to my questions has given me the confidence I needed to work with Teach. In just our individual lesson, Teach has learned all of the basic commands as well as heel and to walk easily on his leash. My absolute favorite is the place command. People are shocked when they come over for dinner and I tell Teach to go to his place and he will stay there, the entire time!
I also am excited because Allison’s program doesn’t end after the individual lessons! I’ve learned my lesson on the significance of continual reinforcement in training and the group lessons are exactly what I am looking for to continue in our training.
I am so thankful that I took my friend’s recommendation to work with Allison and I would and do recommend her to every friend or stranger I meet that is interested in dog training!
