Customer Testimonials
Here are a few words of praise from our customers:

"My Shorty Jack Russell Terrier "Jack" took Paula's obedience class and we both learned a lot.  She not only instructed us each week, but also gave us printed material to practice what he learned that week.  I am very happy to have found her class and highly recommend it. " 
-Penny Nance

"When we decided to get our Bullmastiff puppy Stanley , Paula and The Dog Training Place were recommended to us by family members who had had two of their dogs through her classes.  We were so impressed by the results from the Beginners Class, and pleased by the help that Paula gave us as owners, that we decided to also send him through her Intermediate Class.  We could not be happier with the results.  Since Stanley is 115lbs and still growing, it was important to us that he be trained well, for obvious reasons.  We are able to enjoy having him so much more knowing that we can count on him to be well behaved, even when he is off leash or around new people and animals. With his size, good behavior is crucial, and the training we were able to get at The Dog Training Place has helped immensely.  He learned many basic commands, such as sit, stay, and down.  But he also learned many other practical commands such as how to wait at a doorway or threshold, to jump over when getting into the bathtub or a vehicle, and to behave well on and off a leash.  We constantly have friends, relatives, neighbors, and even strangers remark to us about how well behaved he is.  We would definitely recommend The Dog Training Place to anyone wanting to improve their dog’s behavior, and especially anyone getting a new puppy."

"Being an owner of four dogs, two adopted from abusive situations, I dealt with many unfavorable behaviors. Dominace, aggression, subborness, and fear were just a few I needed to get under control. Paula, at  The Dog Training Place, transformed our lives. My home was transformed from unruly to orderly. The techniques learned gave me control over "my pack". 

We learned correction stategies with an approach of praise, and positve reinforcement. Her love for the dogs is apparent. Her kindness and gentleness changed even my most aggressive dog. The determnation and commitment she has makes her program a success. And you succeeding with your dog is her goal. After having all four dogs through her classes and having so much success, I would not ony recommend this training school, I would encourage anyone with a less than perfect dog to enroll. It was so much fun and the dogs enjoyed it very much. They truly love being good dogs and now they know how."
