"We would like to thank everyone at 'For Pet's Sake' for the excellent training services recevied!  Zeus thanks you too!"

"Love the book, I'm sure I'll be using it for a long time."

Jennifer & Rocky

"I started training so my dog would learn his name (even though we used it at home). My dog started responding to his name once I put a command with it.  Also, one day he ran away from me when I accidentally let go of the leash.  It took me about 15 minutes to get him back.  I thought for sure he was going to run towards one of the busy streets near the house.  I learned all the things I shouldn't have done and what I should have to get him to come back."

Shirley & Painter

"My wife and I are now on the same page as far as commands.  We also feel we learned some valuable information.  Sit/stays have helped in all facets of our life, from company over to our routine walks."

Josh, Laura & Molly

"I started "obedience for a happy, polite doggy and an unfrustrated human -- thank you for an awesome experience training us."
