Coach Annette Scribner's Testimonials
John and I want to say “Thank You!” and let you know how great our experience has been with the Canine Coach in general, and more specifically, how grateful we are for our time with Annette. We feel very lucky to have met Annette our first night in puppy class with our dog, Bruiser. We had such a great experience with Annette in puppy class that in just over a year since his first puppy class Bruiser has been in 5 additional Canine Coach classes (Level I Obedience (with Annette), Agility for Fun (with Annette), Outdoor Recall, Lure Coursing and Level II Obedience (we are currently in this one with Annette and working hard to learn how to heel). During that year, we’ve also spent many hours exploring every inch of the Outdoor Sport Park during private Sport Park time.
Thank you for a wonderful course. We really enjoyed working with you, and Ami has made great strides!
We wanted to thank you and will recommend your services to others, as Canine Coach was recommended to us.
Hi K9Coach! I wanted to let you know that I just finished Level 1 Obedience with Annette at the Front Ave. location--and I also did puppy socialization with her in Feb-March. I had such a great experience-she is a wonderful teacher/trainer- very practical, very clear. My little miniature schnauzer Klaus is a typical terrier--joyful and not especially easy to train-and Annette was always so full of praise when he was starting to master certain behaviors! We will either continue to Level 2 with Annette later this summer (we are going to spend the summer mastering what Annette taught us for the past 11 week...) or I am thinking of the boot camp in the fall. As you can tell, I had a fantastic experience.
Thank you SO much for last night! I feel really empowered now. We've already made HUGE progress already. Thanks again!
Hi Annette, I learned so much from you in class these past 6 weeks! Thank you thank you! You were fantastic! !
Annette came to see my dog Butch and I to see whether he could take a dog-human aggression class. (Butch was under an Animal Control designation for an incident). Annette was professional and friendly, and taught me a lot in just 45 minutes! After taking the class, she evaluated Butch (and coached me some more), and her evaluation led to Butch being taken off the potentially dangerous dog list! I can't thank her enough for giving me the confidence to take the class with Butch.
June and I took your holiday greetings class last year, and I wanted to let you know we've been getting compliments on how well June sits for visitors. We've been working on our other dog's greeting manners too, and we're so happy with the results! Thank you!
Thanks so much for all of your help--it's been great! Murphy gets lots of compliments about how well-behaved he is for such a young dog, and we always recommend the Canine Coach when people ask.
Thank you - this was a great help (even in just a day).
I just love your classes and they’ve done so much for my Wheatens— I just wanted to go ‘on the record’ and thank Annette who is Wonderful!!!
Thanks! I did want to give my praises to Annette too. She has been such a help and went far beyond what I ever would have expected with sending me info and following up after she was at our home. What a great person to have on your team!!
I took the Leash Walk class with Annette and I am still in Obedience I classes right now. I also took Puppy classes with Pauli and Jennifer. I LOVE all the classes, they are all so good. My dog Mickey loves them too. I will highly recommend The Canine Coach to anyone who wants/needs dog training.
I have gone through puppy kindergarten, level I, level II, loose leash walking, and CGC courses all within the past 8 months with my one year old German Shepherd and will be starting agility for fun in a week so I thought it was about time to write a review! This company is AWESOME. I've had three different trainers (Annette, Maureen, and Pauli) and they've all been spectacular at what they do. The trainers know how to tweak instruction to better suit you and your dog individually and also fully understand dog body language so thankfully none were put off by my very talkative, but very friendly GSD. I would recommend Canine Coach 100x over!
Thanks again Annette! You helped me to feel much more confident about my plan and added some great tips I would have never thought about!
Just had to let you know that Annette is a FABULOUS teacher!!! She is animated, excited, and loves teaching obedience. What a breath of fresh air!
Tonight I took Sandy to a restaurant that had outdoor seating and she behaved so well. Not a single whine! Thank you so much for all you taught me and Sandy! I am such a proud Dog Mom now!
I wanted to say thank you so much for a great class! Diego and I are excited to use our new skills!
It was fun to see our little pal so engaged with you! We got the treats and he is enthusiastically learning. Yeah Annette! Yeah Bosco!
Thanks Annette, I am so impressed with the way you handle the class and manage to provide individual attention despite the crazy energy. You are really gifted!
I thought you should know that the reason you keep seeing me and Matisse is due to your awesomeness! You have really made a huge impact on my life and Matisse's. And I always look for your classes because I know I will learn so much and see real progress. So thanks and keep being awesome!
Thank you for everything you did to help us train our sassy wee Pug, Ethel. You were a great Instructor and made class a fun, positive place to be. We all learned so much from you and I can't thank you enough. I've referred your name to several people who have rescue dogs- you seem to really understand some of the special challenges they face. And you're just a really nice person, which is always a bonus.
We've really enjoyed your help and enthusiasm!
I really enjoyed your training style!
Great trainers. Really know their stuff. I've taken many classes.
Heard excellent things about this place. Our first Puppy Socialization class was tonight, and the experience was even better than we anticipated it would be. Great location, super clean (and cute) facility, and the trainer was amazing. Our puppy had an awesome time and we were surprised a bit by that because he’s kind of timid. He already learned some commands and met every single other puppy in his class. 10/10 would recommend.
I am writing just to say I had a great first class (Agility for Fun!) last night with Ollie. I am so excited for next week already!
Cannot say enough good about Canine Coach. We've brought our rescue to the Saint Paul location and we are on our 3rd class. I keep looking for new classes to sign up for, ( just signed up for agility. ) Our first class was leash training and the improvement of our dogs leash walking skills was so impressive after the first class. We have since done obedience 1&2, and each one has done wonders for our dog. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and patient as well as available for questions anytime.
Good morning Annette,
We are so proud of Lucy and how far she has come. We can't say thank you enough. We go hiking as a family frequently and were unable to take Lucy because of how reactive she was. The past two weeks we have taken her on several walks and every hike! While she is not perfect with it yet she is trying so hard to make us happy and we now have the tools to help her.
Hi, I just want to express what a wonderful job Annette does. She is patient, encouraging, and really knows her stuff.
Good news is we have been working with Lydia with plastic bags, loud trucks on our walks, and even other scary things. She is even getting very comfortable with the vacuum and can be in the same room with it running now! That's huge! Thank you so much!
I wanted to let you know I brought Mr.Weenie and Wednesday to the farmers market last weekend and a vendor who meet weenie last year said he is a different dog! He was stunned and so was I. He walked right up and said hi tail wagging and the whole time we were walking around the market he was walking up to people! I can’t thank you enough, hopefully we can work the same magic with Wednesday :)
