WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Let me just say, if you have a dog who could use some training (puppy, adult, tween, whatever,) Susan is amazing. I purchased an in-home training session. Susan came out (on time!) and sat down with me for about an hour and discussed what exactly I wanted to address. I had sent her an email before our visit with a list of my concerns and what I would like to train our puppy to do. She was patient and thoughtful and explained what goals were realistic.

Georgeanne Cheng

We cannot thank Susan and the Purely Positive method enough for the training and guidance we have received. We first began with the kinder puppy classes teaching US and Ella the basics. Susan’s approach and demeanor were exactly what she teaches- positive! We decided at 2 years old that Ella and Ourselves needed a “refresher course”. We were blown away by the education we ALL received at the “Good Citizen” training course.

Kerri and Shelby

When we adopted our dog Atlas he was extremely skittish. While he was fine with us, he showed fear aggression when around other people and dogs. Susan was recommended to us and we set up private training sessions. After a few private sessions he was able to take classes with other dogs. He took an obedience class, Real Life 101 (twice), and ultimately a Tricks class.
