“ I first came to The Exceptional Pet in January of 2007 with my Border Collie, Pepper. Pepper had a severe dog aggression problem. We couldn't go for a walk where there might be other dogs, or go to a dog park or even have her in the car parked next to another car with a dog in it! Training at The Exceptional Pet is "real life" training, not something that is achieved only in a controlled situation. Let's face it, life isn't always controlled. My sincere gratitude goes to Abby for helping me have a dog that I can take anywhere.” - Sharon L. Gunthel
"Pepper is doing wonderfully! She is a pleasure to walk on a leash and take on my runs now. We have also been taking her to the T-ball and Soccer games where there are a lot of kids and other dogs too. She has been fantastic and much calmer and of course very motivated by treats! She has also become a hit with the adults, a lot of who now want to go out and buy themselves a Standard Schnauzer." - Laeticia
“ I'm pleased to tell you that on mine and Bruno's last couple walks he has been very good!!! Shockingly good. He has not been barking or pulling or even barking at cars!!! I can't believe it I use to wrap the leash around my hand as far as I could and with this new leash I barely hold it and he does so good.”- Lauren
“ I often think about you training our dogs. I want to tell you that of the three dog trainers that we have tried, hands down you are the best. I have found a lot of standing around and listening but not a lot of action and use of the other dogs to work with. Your group classes are the most organized and unsurpassed. If you start up advanced group classes, Rally or Agility, please let me know, we would love to work with you again.”- Stacy
“My little frenchie, Yoyo, and I just finished the kindergarten class with Wendy a couple weeks ago and will be starting middle school tomorrow with her, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say how wonderful she has been. In the puppy class we had all kinds of personalities from the typical jumpy excited lab to a stubborn bulldog, Louie, to Bristol, who wanted to sleep more than anything and she worked wonderfully and patiently with each type of dog. It's really nice to see how she truly is a dog lover and I am so happy with my decision to have brought my pup here. He loves the classes and I really love the importance of positive experiences associated with training for dogs that you strive for at your facility and Wendy does a great job upholding the vision it seems you have for training and and overall care for our dogs. - Nathalie P.
