I completely 100% recommend Carolyn! Noble and I have been working with her since Oct 2018 and have done private sessions, 2 focus classes and continue to take freestyle classes. I found the focus classes to be very informative and I've personally learned valuable skills from them that have helped improve my handling skills. Freestyle class is fun and unique. Noble also enjoys this class so much and I can see it in the way that he works so hard every time. Carolyn's also spent a significant amount of time with me after class, helping me through issues and has never made me feel like I'm impeding on her. She is caring and knowledgeable and knows dog behavior and body language very well. If you need a knowledgeable and caring trainer, I highly recommend her! More...

My dog learned so much and I have seen such an improvement in her behaviour after our Focus classes with Carolyn. I also learned a lot about my dog and how she learns. I highly recommend signing up for a class. We will be back for agility classes! Thanks Carolyn! More...

Focus classes are my favorite. Carolyn teaches you that your dog is capable of amazing things! A huge confidence builder for owners and dogs.

Thank you so much Carolyn for the wonderful set of lessons! In particular, your focus class has been tremendous for Cooper and although we still have work to do, he's a different dog! Thanks for understanding Aussies and all dogs! You're a natural and Cooper LOVES YOU �� More...

Piper & I have been training with Carolyn for 6 months now. What Carolyn has drawn out of my Lab truly astounds me. Her talent & creative "thinking outside the box" makes me yearn for more. Piper & I look forward to many more adventures with Carolyn & her dogs. If there was a 10 star rating I would be happy to give it! More...

I have had the pleasure to have Carolyn work with us and our dogs in both obedience and agility. She knows her stuff is all I have to say and makes it fun for both dog and owner! Her passion for dogs no matter what breed is obvious and it amazes me how they want to do good by her! She has all the knowledge and tricks of the trade! More...

I've only taken one class with Carolyn, or else I'd be giving her a 5 star rating. I will be going back for more classes, so will upgrade the star rating at that time. She doesn't have any Obedience background but what she does know, she knows very well. She's positive and upbeat ~ eager to teach and eager to learn. Marshall and I had a wonderful time with Carolyn. We will definitely be going back to learn more of her 'tricks'. Fun stuff...... More...
