Hank has attended puppy kindergarten and puppy day camp, and both were so incredibly valuable to him. He's gone from nipping people and jumping to one seriously well behaved little guy. He didn't necessarily have problems when he started, but he's quite the little gentleman now, which is saying something for a 4-month old terrier! He listens when he's called, and the trainers have been really wond...

Description of Work
I took Hank to puppy kindergarten, which is basically training for humans with play time for the puppies. He went from being really shy at our first class, to playing with the big dogs more recently. He's a high energy guy so I signed him up for several of the classes. From all the horror stories I've heard from other new dog parents, I'm lucky he has such a great outlet for his energy and isn't tearing up the house instead :) And the human training is great, the trainers do a wonderful job of showing you what the dog sees when you do something, which really brings it home why certain behaviors work and certain don't. Hank is also attending puppy day camp this week, where the puppies get a lot of 1:1 time with the trainers, spending 3-4 hours with them in the morning, and the improvement has been remarkable. He's much more attentive on walks, comes when I call (for the most part ;)) and is generally much better behaved around the house. He was nipping at my clothing before this week but I wore a skirt yesterday (a big dog attractant previously) and he just wagged his tail at me, no nipping at all. I get a puppy report card every day and time to talk with the trainers when I pick him up. They have suggested very valuable improvements to his ongoing training, which will help me maintain all of their great work. The puppy kindergarten takes place at their main facility, but the puppy day camp is at the gorgeous annex down the street, talk about dog heaven. Lots of space to run, play and learn.

The training I received with my puppy has helped me create a better environment for the both of us.

I was referred to Ahimsa by my vet and couldn't be happier. Carly, the trainer who taught our Puppy Kindergarten class, was amazing. She showed an amazing amount of knowledge and caring for my puppy. I plan to enroll myself and my dog into additional classes there!

They are an okay company. They did what they were supposed to do which was to train the dog. I do think the class that I was in was a little too large for the animals. It was kind of hard for them to pay attention and not pay attention to the other animals.

They do basic dog training.

Service Provider Response

I APPRECIATE THE HONEST FEEDBACK. WE'RE CONSTANTLY TRYING TO IMPROVE THE CLASS EXPERIENCE FOR OUR CLIENTS, SO I'LL KEEP YOUR WORDS IN MIND AS WE MAKE CHANGES. I TOOK A LOOK AT THE CLASS YOU WERE IN AND NOTICED THAT IT WAS ONLY THE SECOND CLASS THAT YOUR INSTRUCTOR HAD TAUGHT AT AHIMSA (IT WASN'T HER FIRST CLASS, BUT SHE WAS NEW TO OUR FACILITY). I THINK THAT I'LL HAVE TO BE SURE TO GIVE SMALLER CL...
