We took my 6 month old Mini Aussie to the Black Paw training center for 2 weeks. She is a little shy and was not reliable off leash…plus some other house manners that needed working on. I’m beyond happy with, and impressed with all aspects of this training. Bernadette communicated with us the entire time, sending pictures or little videos throughout the 2 weeks. She also sent home a training book and emailed lots of videos to help us prepare for her return home. Upon pickup, we had an extensive lesson to help us learn how to use our new tools and continue her training. Now that she is home, I cannot stop talking about how happy we are that she went to this training. She is an absolute joy to have in the home and outside. She stays on her bed while I cook dinner, she walks beautifully when I take her into town, she doesn’t charge the door when people come over, no jumping…I could go on and on. We took her to a park with the kids today and she played fetch off leash and stayed close to us and we felt completely confident in her ability to not run away. Aside from the wonderful training, Bernadette and her team are an absolute joy to work with and I know that my pup loved her time there and developed such a bond with Bernadette and other trainers. If I could give 10 stars I would.
