"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."

"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."

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