I really enjoyed taking Fern to Marie’s class. I had never done clicker training before but Marie made it easy for both me and Fern to learn. It was empowering to see how much joy structured training brought to Fern’s day. She gave us homework for each week and it really helped me get in the habit of daily training. Her class has empowered me in training Fern, I feel more intentional in my interactions with Fern, and our relationship has deepened as a result. Thank you Marie, I am glad we made the drive each week from Houston!
Marie is a wonderful trainer. She is patient with both owners and dogs. I really appreciated her style of training. It emphasized real life situations that dogs might encounter and how to make them confident in handling them. For example, she had mobility devices for the dogs to sniff and be treated so they would be comfortable around wheelchairs and walkers, etc. Her hints were very helpful and her facility was top notch. Give her a try, you will not be disappointed!!
Saturday morning, my husband got in his pickup and started backing out the drive way to go to the store. Jackson, out 7 month old puppy, followed him out the open gate and was circling behind the truck. I yelled to Glenn but he couldn’t hear me over the roar of the engine. Our training from Marie’s puppy class kicked in and I put my hand down, calling, “Here Jackson! Touch!” He came to me, touched my hand and I was able to grab his collar. Thank you, thank you Marie. Without your effective training of both Jackson and me this story might have had a very different ending.
