Client Testimonials

Happy ClientMy dog, Gordon, a three year old German Shepherd, and I enjoy nose work for many reasons. One of the primary motivations for me to initially sign us up for nose work classes was because the dogs work independently. Gordon has animal aggression issues making it impossible for him to take other, more common, canine classes such as group obedience classes. -- Michele Stone and Gordon, Williamsport, PA

"I think Silke's greatest strength is her ability to focus in very quickly on a dog's behavioral issues and come up with an effective solution. She has helped me innumerable times with my foster puppies to work through issues they are having and that I was having trouble resolving. A great example is a foster puppy I evaluated for a week because she was barking and biting her foster family. With Silke's input I was able to identify and reverse the triggers for the barking and biting and, just when I needed it most, Silke sent me a wonderful short video that summarized how to manage a high drive puppy like this one. This gave me a very clear set of guidelines for the dog's foster family who successfully implemented them. The dog is now in advanced training and matched with a client – a very different outcome than dropping her from the program which was being considered." -- Suzie Dupont and Sandler, Benton, PA
