"I have trained at other facilities in the past and I found Elise's sensitivity to the dogs excellent. My favorite parts of class were playtime for the dogs, understanding dog behavior, and seeing the potential and possibilities of Shine. I also liked that Elise would address any behavior problems even if they weren't part of the training." Jan Eidelson & her dog, Shine 

"Thanks again for the great class. When I started, I was feeling a little frustrated with how things were going with Josie, and now it's really different. I got some great tips about training and she got mental stimulation. We are both happier with each other." Tamara Kaplan & her dog, Josie

To man or dog, child or puppy, the greatest deterrent to supreme happiness is ennui: boredom resulting from lack of something to do.

This is what prevents dogs from achieving their greatest potential.
