Testimonials

Shelly's success in training dogs, especially in resolving behavioral problems, is backed by the hundreds of testimonials he has gotten from private pet owners and clients.

Luciano…was totally out of control. I had him trained by another trainer…he stayed for one month…two weeks later, he bit a child. I heard about you from a man who was boarding our dog. When you told us you could help, we had our doubts. You took him into your hands, and what a different dog we have now. I cannot tell you how much our lives have changed now that he is a different dog thanks to you!
…You are the best!

I was hesitant to drop off Tundra 4 days a week at such an early age (4 months old)…but as the days wore on, Tundra became more and more excited to get to training in the morning. Obviously, the pup was having fun! Your training methods were terrific for our young family…We are very glad that we trained him at a young age before any bad habits became ingrained.

We wanted to thank you for all of your help in training our dog, Bailey. We were about to give up on him…you transformed this dog to a wonderful, disciplined family pet…our family would have been devastated if we had to give him up.

I want to thank you for the overall good care you have provided for “Harry”. You have done a remarkable job with a breed of dog which has a mind of its own…Your’s is the only training schol that I would personally recommend to others.

I…commend the fine training that was given to my dog at your school…His trainig skills have remained as sharp as they were when he completed his training. Many of my friends who have taken their dogs elsewhere have complained that their dogs forgot their training within weeks of classes, despite continued practice…I couldn’t be more pleased with the training provided for “Junior”.

I can’t begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did in training our Great Dane, “Zeus”…After a short few week, we have a “new dog” in him.

“Hobbs” finished his training with you. On that day you returned to me an entirely different dog. The change…is amazing. “Hobbs” thanks you for training his person…

The day I walked into Shelly’s school, I was ready to give my dog “Frosty” away…six weeks later, Frosty enjoys being with others…Thank you…you guys will always be in a special place in my heart.

Shelly, I just wanted to thank you …for the wonderful job you did with “Jax”. His improvement has been incredible and I am only sorry that I did not bring him to your school sooner.

I can’t thank you enough for the change you’ve made in my animal…the nightmare of taking her for a walk and being pulled off my feet has turned into a dream.

Thank you! None of the other trainers I went to were able to hep me at all – they had no clue how to deal with the typical Malinois temperment, and I was ready to put “Mango” down, she was that dangerous. Then I went to Shelly…and I am amazed at the change in my dog. “Mango” and I have since earned our “Schutzhund B” title (an Obedience and Temperament test), and we are currently training for an advanced Tracking degree. We never could have come this far without Shelly.

Just wanted to say “thank you”…for all the knowledge and patience. The only reason I am successful in the ring is from what I learned from you. I look at Zorro (#11 Malinois in the country) and realize how lucky I was to learn from you.
