Testimonial from one of our training clients!

I am writing to you to introduce you to one of the dogs in your program and let you know what a huge difference All Dog Adventures training has made in my dogs life. I have a 11 month old French Bulldog named Martin. While it is somewhat unusual to have a French bulldog with a “job” – Martin has a very important job – he comes with me to work in an Addiction Medicine clinic. Each day he sees patients with me. He offers snuggles (and asks everyone for a belly rub) and acts as a bit of an ice breaker when they are nervous and is a soothing presence when they are anxious or upset. While it is fun to have a young puppy in the office I knew Martin would need top level training to be successful in the long run. I asked several friends who all recommended All Dog Adventures.

I started training with Julie in August 2022 with the goal of having him obtain his CGC and Therapy Dog certification. I was immediately impressed by her organization and ability to help me design a plan for Martin’s training and her insight into what would help Martin to be even better and more successful in clinic. She has also helped me to teach him “tricks” and both Martin and the patients love this (for example, he shakes hands with them when they come into my office and walks nicely next to them to the front desk to check out and then waves "bye"). Julie is on time and organized every session and always explains the reasoning behind the exercises we are doing which helps me to be a better handler. As someone in the medical field, I really appreciate that she has researched the different styles of dog training and can back her teaching with current information. I love not just learning a “trick” or command for my dog but the rationale behind it. (For example, teaching the “Middle” command so that if I need to call him for safety reasons such as if a wheelchair is in the way or we had an ambulance crew in the hallway, he would not be in the way). She helps me recognize subtle signals in Martin’s body language and know when adjust accordingly if he is becoming stressed. Julie teaches not only to Martin but also to me which is fantastic.

Julie also recommended group training so that Martin could learn skills with other dogs and we are now in Level 2 class with Melanie. Melanie also does a great job in helping Martin to become successful and he often gets to be the example for class. Martin loves going to his group class and I enjoy it as well. We recently passed our level 2 class and have signed up to start with Level 3 in January.

I don’t know if you offer employee recognition at your organization but if you do, I would like to recommend Julie for a “shout out” as I feel she has made an incredible difference in my dogs life. I look forward to continuing to train at All Dog Adventures and wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your instructors.

FAQ

How do I get started in Manners?

The first step to getting started in Manners is filling out our registration form. Once we receive your registration form, our team will call, and we’ll work together to schedule your time with us. From there, we require you to watch and participate in our orientation video that is included in the training package. We offer six-week training sessions for you and your four-legged friends! Contact Us if you have any further questions!

Why are there prerequisites for advanced classes?

Our dogs and we need to learn how to walk before running. Our advanced classes have different prerequisites depending on the course because they require a foundation of skills to build upon. Prerequisites give you and your dog the experience you’ll need to succeed in our advanced classes.

I have taken basic obedience classes elsewhere. Why should I start in Level 1 Manners?

You have nothing to lose! You can fill the gaps in your foundation while you and your dog move through the program at your speed. If you start Level 1 with strong foundational skills, you will graduate quickly and move on to more challenging classes. Also, our Manners classes foundation will serve you well should you decide to take Advanced Classes with us.
