Pancake has matured and developed so much through interaction with Tricia, Katelyn, Kathy and all the other dogs.
Senor loved the classes!
Tricia and Katelyn are great trainers and teachers. We adopted our dog when he was 3 years and just rescued. He has been very nice at home but had a barking issue to other dogs as he might be frightened, and we had struggled to deal with it. Tricia and Katelyn taught us basic training skills and very helpful advises by demonstrating those skills to our dog. We learned how to avoid such unwanted situations by making him paying attention to us. Although our dog still wants to bark as it is difficult to change his personality itself, now we feel more comfortable and confident about walking outside with him.
I love the small class size and the amount of attention paid to each dog/human team. Tricia is extremely compassionate and understands dog psychology, and human psychology too! The support is wonderful, and gave me time and space to work with my dog in a positive and productive way.
The Bakers at 20 Paws have been absolutely wonderful helping us to train our dog, Hope. With the goal of having our dog trained and eventually certified to become a facility therapy dog, we started with Level 1 virtual classes in May, recently graduated from Level 3 and will be starting Animal Assisted Therapy dog classes in January! We are so excited. They have been careful and sensitive during this COVID 19 pandemic, and we are so grateful to have them assisting us! Trish and Kaitlyn are so patient with our little dog, and help us to trouble shoot any difficulties that we have with training Hope! I could have never taken on this venture without their support and guidance!
Tricia really understands dogs, how to train them and how to love them. She was very helpful in giving us tips and tricks to have a well behaved pet.
Looking forward to the next training session for Caleb , who loves coming to class 🙂
Excellent class I have done 2 classes already , with my dog beginner with Tricia and Walking Bootcamp with Katelyn. Both are excellent trainers and I wouldn’t go any where else with my dog! thank you ladies.
