Our class one instructor, Mike, is doing an excellent job teaching our beginning obedience dogs. It is a challenging class because some dogs have not learned good doggie behavior. Our training program and philosophy is to work with all dogs, treating none as deficient or unable to learn. It is a path of hope for dogs who desperately need guidance. Otherwise, their options are severely limited. It is wonderful to see dogs who 4 weeks ago were barking and lunging at other dogs now sitting respectfully side by side on a sit stay. Mike shows incredible patience and has a clear understanding of dog behavior.
