Coach Courtney Angerer's Testimonials

Tuli, Finley (FKA Mundee) and I had a great time. Thank you for giving us such a great opportunity. I know I was going a bit crazy with two foster teens and two of my own. Your classes really helped.

This is Nichole S with little Boston girl E.V. We LOVED working with you in Obedience 2 Sundays at 715pm -- Thank you for always being so amazing with the dogs and so gentle with your human redirection. We truly appreciate your support in helping us work with her.

Nichole S
I don't know exactly what it is, but she was just very easy to approach and talk to. Sometimes people who are really good with dogs aren't very good at working with people. This is definitely not the case with Courtney!

Level I Obedience Class Feedback
Our foster, Hooch, looked forward to class. He knew what was going to happen once we pulled up and got his happy tail going.

Molly R.
We are SO grateful for your help throughout the training sessions and for Maureen's help at the last session! I feel so much more confident walking him now that I have a better handle on how to manage his reactivity. I can't thank you guys enough!

I learned a ton of great information. Courtney was very professional, energetic, and knowledgable. I highly recommend her! She loves her job and it showed.

Hi Courtney,
As class ended today I wanted to personally thank you for your work with us, but you had other responsibilities.
Anyhow I really appreciated your focus and patience with all of us. As you noted today, Mercy is getting bigger and stronger so it was critical to get training started just about the time we did. We haven't been as conscientious with homework as we should have been, but a lot better than if we didn't have the classes to motivate us.

Best wishes,
Mercy (typed for her by her 'dad' - Tom N)
Hi Courtney,
Thank you so much for making the past 6 wks fun. Baxter has improved so much since going to your class. We will be getting him enrolled in Level 2 soon, hope to have you as his teacher again.

Thank you again
Amy, Brian and Mr. Baxter
Sabrina and I attended and completed Puppy Socialization and just recently, Agility for Fun, with Courtney. I really enjoy Courtney’s training style. When I first adopted Sabrina and started with the Puppy Socialization, Sabrina was a very rambunctious 6 month old with almost no manners. 9 months later and I still remember and use some of the techniques. Agility was a bit tricky for Sabrina to pick up and enjoy but Courtney remained calm and steady and took the time to help Sabrina overcome her fear of the plank walk and the A frame.

I thought you would be proud to hear we took Grayson on a walk to the Dairy Queen (lots of kids and people) and he did so great and just sat next to me looking around.

I just wanted to say thank you for making this class such a success for Lady. I really appreciated all the modifications you made in order to make her more comfortable. I am so happy with the changes I've seen in her. I feel like she walked out a very different dog after just 6 classes! I was so nervous to take her to this class because I knew she's not great with scary new environments and strange dogs. I honestly was expecting to be asked to leave class. How you calmly handled her nervousness and set her up for success with the gates made me relax right away. It's probably no big deal for you because you deal with this all the time, but it really made Lady and I feel more comfortable from the get go. Can't wait to take the leash aggression class, and maybe obedience 2!! Highly impressed with your training, and Canine Coach in general.

Thank you so much for all your help with Lady!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful instruction! We have really seen the difference in Carmina and are excited to get her going with level II.

Thanks again! :)

Hey Courtney,
I wanted to say thank you for the class! We really appreciated it and love your heart to help others have well-behaved dogs :)

I love consulting with you and knowing that we're doing it the "right" way. I'll get in touch with you in a couple of weeks and let you know how things are going.

Take care

We took our puppy there for puppy class and are now doing the obedience training as well. He's learning really fast and the trainers are fantastic. On top of all this, the cost is very reasonable for what you get out of it.

Thanks again Courtney for all the extra time you spent with us over the last couple months. It has helped a lot with Finn.

He and I were out for a walk at Baker this afternoon and he did so well. A person was coming from the opposite direction, and he seemed spooked buy it. we stopped when she was about 15 yards away. He sat and never made a single move towards her. She stopped to talk for about 2 minutes, and he never moved. Never even acted like he wanted to get up. Once she went on her way, we continued and he was unfazed.

Progress indeed.

See you Sunday for our next class.

Courtney,
We just wanted to say thank you for the wealth of knowledge that you gave us in class. Because of your classes: we have peace and quiet while Lucy eats- thanks to the dog feeder mat idea AND we can walk easier with less pulling-thanks to the halter clipped in front, AND we can answer the door without her nosing her way outside. We loved your style of teaching and hope to see you in another class sometime.

Thanks again.
Mark and Jane and Lucy T.
Hi Courtney
I have really appreciated the late morning classes for Barley(Lhasa-Bichon mix) Barley and I want to thank you for all your efforts and training tips(all wonderful and helpful) in the recent class you held. Though Barley's circumstances are unique (as with most dogs, no doubt) I appreciate the way you present your techniques and your great amount of patience with those of us who don't get to keep at the training regiments as much at home as trainers get to teach classes :>)

Thanks for a great Beginner I class :>)
