Cherry and I have learned dozens, perhas a couple of hundred things in Puppy, Basic, and Intermediate class, but when I talk with outher people about what I’ve learned from Mare and Kristin, I often say that each course was worth 10x my money and time investment for one or two enduring life skills that Cherry and I would not have without Dancin’ Woofs training. They are:
Puppy – marking the skill and putting the dog in park.
Basic – I need to “throw a party” that is bigger than what ever the potential distraction if I want Cherry to respond – I believe that is the basis of Cherry’s success on reliable recall from 100 yds with distraction.
Intermediate – reliably sending Cherry to a remote spot with attendant down/stay – she got this skill from class – I am looking forward to developing it into a versatile companion skill to take her out of the line of fire in many situations.

Wonderful dog training and daycare services. Already completed Basic and Intermediate and looking forward to more training. The trainers are compassionate and helpful at adapting learning styles to ensure success. Daycare provides great socialization and enjoyment — my little guy can’t wait to go and is happily exhausted by the end of each day (great way to use up all that puppy energy!)

If not for Mares help with my Aussie, Shepherd, Collie mix, I could not have kept my puppy. Without Mary, Linda,and Kristin’s love and compassion I would be lost. This dog was different in every way possible from dogs I have had in the past. I had no clue what to do with him and was ready to give up. I had never given up a dog before but he was so far out of my knowledge on dogs I didn’t know what to do. He was 6 weeks old when I got him, and just turned 8 months.He has come so far and is a great little dog!!! I am so happy to have the help to allow me to keep him! Thank you to the staff that just doesn’t “hang out” while my dog is there, but puts in the effort to teach him and keep him safe and happy!!!!!WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU!!!!
