Miranda was knowledgeable and friendly, and she helped folks in the class to not take things too seriously (she invited laughter instead of frustration when a dog didn't do what they were supposed to do). Sharing her personal experience with her own dogs was also very helpful and made lessons more relatable. She also did a great job of helping anyone 1-on-1 who was struggling with any given activity.
I've taken obedience 1 and 1.5 with Miranda. We love her! She is very welcoming, positive and patient and we always look forward to her classes and are happy after. Our dog has made quite a bit of progress in her classes and it's been well worth the trip (sometimes in deep snow :-) ) once a week to work with her. We plan to continue obedience classes with our dog and to take as many classes with Miranda as we can find that works with our schedule. Miranda is amazing and represents your company well. :-)
I want to thank you for all of your help! Chuckles and I have both made tons of progress. There is such a difference in both of us on our walks. I used to get so anxious that we would run into another dog and I wouldn't be able to control him. I'm sure me being anxious didn't help him calm down. I feel so much more confident now. We are even able to walk at the lake near our house, which is usually busy with many other walking dogs, without incident! Our walks have become much more enjoyable. We have a ways to go, but I never imagined this kind of progress.
Thank you so much.
I've now taken two dogs here for classes and they have been very helpful! I like how the trainers teach very practical tips and give plenty of time to practice with them, but also give homework to work on at home. The trainers are knowledgeable and kind, never make you feel like you're asking a dumb question. Both of my dogs are still benefiting from what they have learned at Canine Coach, and I am too.
The class was great and we still have lots to work on- thank you for helping build a solid foundation
FYI your brief leash lesson with Charger was amazing!!
Best walk I've ever had with him today!!
Thank you so much!
Have a good weekend. Dan H
I liked that she drew from her own experience fostering puppies. She also covered topics that were very relevant and that I might not have thought of (good and bad chew toy options).
I enjoyed how relaxed she was. We had a couple (including my dog some days) that were very active and loud and she took her time and waited until the dogs were settled and moved on.
Life for us has been absolutely crazy but we have absolutely LOVED the classes we have been a part of. It is so much fun learning how to better connect with your dog and be the best owners we can be!
Thanks for all that you guys do, we absolutely LOVE the Canine Coach!
I loved the puppy class last week. Milo was so happy and I learned so much.
