Coach Sadie Miller's Testimonials
My dog Scout and I took the Level 1 Obedience class this past summer. Coach Sadie is an excellent teacher - knowledgeable, warm, and friendly. She is always available to her students before/after class for individual questions. She does a great job of giving examples of what we're doing in class, applied to real-life situations. Through the lessons and training from Coach Sadie, I feel that Scout and I have a better understanding of one another - we both learned a lot!
We had a great experience with both the in-home training and the class. Our trainer, Sadie, was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable, explained clearly what she was doing and what we could work on after she left, and had our dog taking treats from her hand by the end of the session at our home (this was huge). I also loved that the prices are clearly communicated on their website and there were no hidden or extra charges or any pressure at all to purchase more training/services. In fact, if anything, our trainer reassured us that we could continue the work she started with us on our own.
Also, this is our 2nd round of classes with Canine Coach; the first was the puppy class. We signed up again with Sadie- she is wonderful. She offers a lot of useful information we can apply to our daily lives. I love that she gives examples of how to use these commands, and how it might make our lives a little easier (at the vet, while you're making dinner, etc.). We really enjoy her classes and teaching style, the hour flies by!
Thanks for all your help and tips.
Hi Sadie, thought you'd like to see Lionel's new little sister! Lionel is doing great with her. He is very gentle and likes to sniff but then goes back to doing his own thing. He doesn't mind crying or other new noises and routines. I'm so proud of him. Thanks again for a great class!
Thanks again for all your time and help,
While out of town this past weekend, we took Keeda on a run and she did wonderful! A little pulling and some distractions when we passed the cow pastures but overall, she did wonderful! Before this class, I could not take her on a walk, let alone, run with her. With your corrective techniques, we are both learning how we can work together to walk and run.
Thank you so much for your help today!!!! You rock!
Thank you so much for your help last night! It's been fun working on these things and watching the kids interact with Rookie better:) I will let you know how things are going!
Thanks for leading such a positive and comfortable session last night! My wife and I (and almost certainly Frank, to be honest) were a bit nervous coming into the class but are feeling more confident in our ability to work through his reactivity going forward.
We really enjoyed our time with you yesterday. Thanks for the notes. We will arrange a second appointment for two or three weeks from today.
My husband and I and our dog Kima recently took both the level one obedience class, and your class for dogs and new babies. I just wanted to write and say what a great experience both of those classes were for us, and how much it helped, especially in regards to having a new baby at home. We are happy to report Kima and baby Xavier get along wonderfully. We couldn't have imagined a better outcome. Kima loves to give the baby kisses, but gives space as soon as you ask her. She does "leave it" excellently with all the baby things that are now around the house, and walks with the stroller are a breeze (other than for the occasional squirrel she has to try to get to).
Our normal timeslot is on Wednesdays in SLP with Sadie, but we have a conflict this week for Week 5, which we’re sad about – both because it’s the last class with the dogs & people we’ve met, but also because we think Sadie is awesome.
My dog Lola and I have completed three classes with Sadie: Leash Training, Level 1 Obedience, and Level 2 Obedience. We just love her and Lola is so incredibly obedient as a result of Sadie’s work with us! We look forward to more classes with Sadie! She is wonderful and I have been referring people to her!
Thanks again for your help with our pooch, Eira. With your tips, things are changing. She's now going up and down stairs like nobody's business.
Sadie came on Thursday last week and helped with Ginger. I'm really happy with her training and the results are great so far.
We are so pleased by the results of our training with you and Sadie! More than ever you guys made me realize how much I have to learn and with the successes we saw throughout your class my confidence was totally renewed. So, thank you so very much. I'm looking forward to lots more fun with Herc and Canine Coach.
Sadie, we would like to thank you so much for your leadership and training! You do a wonderful job, with dogs and people. Despite some of his high-energy dog-greeting antics, Baker really is doing pretty well at adapting to life.
