Customer says Thanks…
I just wanted to share a couple of things with you, all compliments, and I know that you don’t always hear positive feedback. Anyway, last week, we were out with Bella on our underground fence and she listened, obeyed, and was basically all around very well behaved and mannered. My neighbors who have a black lab a couple of months older than Bella, who went to a different trainer, told me that they really wished they had gone through your program after seeing Bella now.
Secondly, on Friday morning, I was out working on my boat and she was out with me. The lawn care guy next door was out working on my neighbor’s yard and she sat there and stayed, like I told her, and watched him. He came up to me when he was done and started asking questions about her, like how old she was, etc. He was amazed at how well behaved and trained she was. He asked if I had gone through your class or someone else’s (yours’ by name) and he said that he was planning on getting a puppy again sometime this fall or next spring and he will definitely be taking your obedience class. He said that one of his neighbors has a dog that has gone all the way through an advanced obedience (some where else) and that dog isn’t as well behaved.
Finally, a couple of hours later, the mail man came to our house and needed to drop a package off at the door. I told Bella to sit and stay and I went and talked to him for 4-5 minutes. She never moved. He said to me “she must have gone through Karen Rude’s program”. He also said that he sees a lot of dogs and he can tell the difference between dogs that have been through your class and ones that have gone else where. He said there is no comparison, your dogs are above and beyond better trained.
I hope that you hear these types of comments often, but if not, I wanted to make sure that I forwarded these on to you. Over the last week, Bella has been outside with me every day on her underground fence and is simply fantastic. She has no desire to go across the line and she does not fall for all the temptations around her. People walk by with dogs and she sits there and just watches them walk by. Thank you for everything that you did and helped us do with her! She truly has become well-behaved dog that we were hoping for.
