Here is what people are saying



Brad Weake

3 months after graduation: Here is what Bear’s owner says:“Bear is doing FANTASTIC! The course is obviously closed for the season, but don’t tell that to Bear….. he gets his collar on every morning and is ready to go to “work”. We walk parts of the golf course three times a day and he is a great listener now. With other people and dogs wandering around the course, he stays with me and NEVER runs off to “visit” others.
One of the nicest parts (selfishly) is that he is very content just relaxing at night with the family!
Karen, You and your team went above and beyond, making sure Bear learned and understood what the new expectations are. He is a pleasure to “work” with and great to “relax” with once we go home at the end of the day.

From Priscilla Lo:

I got Ariel in Saudi Arabia from the humane society.
She had a number of issues such as chewing, pulling, jumping the fence in the backyard, and lots of aggressive behavior to the point where my family was reluctant to care for her any longer.
After a long search, I discovered Karen and she was a Godsend to both Ariel and I. Ariel stayed at boarding school for almost 5 months while I finished up my contract overseas throughout which I got great updates every few days from Karen about her progress. When we picked her up, she was a completely different dog. She was a happy confident dog.
It has been 6 months now and she still keeps up all her good behavior she learned from Karen and her pack. She is the best-behaved dog in my building and we get compliments all the time. Anytime I have any questions Karen is just a text or phone call away.
By training my little wild desert dingo of a dog into a well-behaved pup, Karen was the best thing that’s happened to Ariel and has made my life with Ariel so much better, thank you so much Karen 🙂



Otis graduated

Good morning Karen,
Yesterday was one of the best days I’ve ever had with Otis. He is a pro with meals times and staying on his place. We walked the small block in our neighbourhood and he did pretty good with loose leash. There were lots of distractions with dogs and people (this morning he did much better with the distractions!) Jeff took him for a walk. I was sitting on our front deck when they came back and the leash was totally loose. Otis looked like he was smiling from ear to ear. It’s such a pleasure having him around! Today after we did on leash and bumper work I took him back to the hydro fields for a little off leash reward. He was chasing after a rabbit and listened to me when I called him to come. I’m sure he’s going to keep amazing us.
Have a great day!
Stephanie and Jeff


Stanley and Finn Doodles

Just want to give you an update!
Boys are both doing great in the house and we are doing lots of place work and door bell ringing and door opening etc.
We took him for a groom today and there was another dog, he barked and then I squared my body to him and had him sit and kept the leash nice and loose and he stopped! I was surprised he didn’t keep it up so he is for sure progressing (or maybe it’s me progressing hahaa)
We are so pleased with all the work you have done with them! They are much easier to enjoy now!
Thank you again and I’ll send more updates next week when we are Away and get plenty of off leash stuff in!
Take care,
Brittany and Bryan


Sandy Potje Husky

Hi Karen,
Thank you so much for all the work that you accomplished with Sandy. I am so thankful for the time you and your team were able to work with Sandy. I am thrilled to see how much calmer she is (yet still lots of fun). I am going to have my work cut out for me to keep the progress moving as I think I may have more to learn than Sandy. Please pass on my thanks to your team as well. Sandy was an absolute angel on the ride home, she went right to sleep and slept all the way home. (of course that gave her lots more energy).

Thanks again,

Shelby Potje

Sandy’s owner

From Roza, owner of Thor, German Shepherd:

“Thor is so much better at everything! He’s a Joy to walk. Thank you for all your hard work!”
