Coach Sadie Miller's Testimonials

Thank you so much for all of your help. I have loved going to the classes and learning how to train him.

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!

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 again,
Amy H

You are really making a difference for our family.

Thank you!

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!

Hi Sadie,
If there had been any doubt in my mind before yesterday, there is none now. We are going to go for a therapy dog "certificate" for Anna. I had Anna at the Fridley dog park when a girl of about 8-10 yrs came sobbing up to the bench we were standing by. Her dad was sitting there and she told him that one of the bigger dogs just raised its head and clobbered her in the nose. I can imagine that it really hurt. Anna went right up to her and began whining and licking her face. It was the most empathetic gesture I've ever seen. At least that's how I interpreted it. Even her dad though so. We start Obedience 2 on Sunday at NE. Thanks for the idea.

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!

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!

Hi Sadie
I just want to say thank you for your classes. It was really rewarding to see Callen's improvement today from 4 weeks of your coaching. We still have lots of work ahead of us but it nice to feel we are moving forward to being less stressed around strange dogs and people.

Looking forward to next week.

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).

Thank you so much for all that you taught us in those classes, we will definitely recommend your classes to others!

Our normal timeslot is on Wednesdays in SLP with Sadie, but we have a conflict this week for Week 5, which were sad about both because its the last class with the dogs & people weve met, but also because we think Sadie is awesome.

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.

Hi Sadie,

This is Nikki and Collin (Ryder's "parents"). We wanted to share something with you :)

Prior to training, we tried bringing Ryder to Petsmart only two times. To say each time was sensory-overload would be an understatement. That was in November. Today, we decided to bring him to Petsmart again. This time it was busier and the store was much larger. Here is where you come in:

Ryder did not jump on anyone even when they came to pet him.

He did not growl or become aggressive while interacting with any dogs.

While waiting in line, he sat on command and "stayed" when asked. The man behind us even said "wow, nice job." We were even shocked.

Lastly, when he started to get a little antsy and whiny, you're all too familiar with how this looks and sounds, I said "Ryder watch me," and you guessed it, he sat and watched me! WOOHOO!

haha we felt like proud little parents and walked out of Petsmart in shock.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and support during training and wanted to tell you how much we appreciated you.

Nikki, Collin, & Ryder
