Another 5 Star review!
Lauren McFarlane reviewed
My Bark Avenue Academy — 5 star
Sadie is 8 months old and she uses the lessons she learned at boot camp on a daily basis. She leaves claimed space, waits patiently, and is an expert at using the bells to go outside. Even when she forgets a lesson, such as nibbling when playing, she can be corrected with a single command. Cathie set us up so well to continue Sadie's training at home, and is always available to answers questions by email or provide additional advice as we continue to develop as owners. Now that Sadie is ready for obedience classes I am confident the foundation she gained at boot camp will serve her well. Everyone who meets Sadie is amazed that she is only 8 months old, as she is so well behaved. I have no doubt this is largely due to taking her Cathie's boot camp at such an early age. We have been so impressed with Sadie's progress and Cathie's support that we cannot recommend the boot camp enough.

One fifteen minute lesson changed everything!
Today, July 10th, 2017 I met Oliver a young Maltese cross for the very first time. Watch as his owner breaks down in tears as she talks with me about how she feels about what she sees with her dog in only fifteen minutes of working with me. This desperate owner called me and said that they had been taking private lessons with another trainer for over five weeks and that she was still very unhappy with her dog's behaviour. She told me that he would bark constantly when he saw people, other animals or even birds. She had been encouraged by the other trainer to reward with treats but to also use very strong correction using a slip leash. She said that there was some improvement, but it is what she told me the trainer told her she needed to get him that shocked me. This video was taken after I had worked with her and Oliver for only fifteen minutes and she has given me permission to share this with you.
