“ Thank you for your patience and understanding during our puppy class.  We learned a lot from your class  and I appreciate your intuitive sense and knowledge of dogs.  We will tell everyone of our wonderful experience in your class and hopefully they can benefit also.

Thank you again Bonnie.”

"I wanted to sincerely thank you for all the classes and help with Willow. She responds so quickly to positive reinforcement. I’m so glad we found your classes - the only other experience I had with training a dog was 30+ years ago when my family rescued a border collie mix - our trainer at the time had us snapping the choke chain to correct him. I’m so sad to think how wonderfully he would have learned and how much better our relationship would have been, had we known the techniques that you teach."
