It’s been more than 15 years since I’ve trained a dog and I did it the old-fashioned way with a choke chain, lots of jerking, an occasonal swat, stern NOs, etc. etc. I never felt comfortable using those harsh techniques and knew I wanted to try a different approach with my sweet rescue dog, but had no idea where to begin. Fortunately, I found Patti O’Farrell at Get Pawsitive Dog Training. Patti skillfully communicates with her students so she understands their individual needs and concerns and structures her classes accordingly. I appreciate her enthusiasm, patience, and professionalism. She makes learning fun, providing on-the-spot feedback and helpful suggestions, and enriches her classes with excellent articles and links to videos. Best of all, my confidence has steadily grown over the past few weeks and my relationship with my dog is the best I’ve ever had. Thank you, Patti!
