Client Testimonials

Anna Simpson and ArtemisArtemis and I have taken several courses now through HeRo Canine Consulting. The staff is helpful and professional, with a focus on positive training methods that work for both dog and owner. Classes are flexible, and each attendee gets personal attention tailored to their needs. I really appreciate their willingness to work with dogs from every background and with various strengths and weaknesses. The atmosphere is always upbeat and fun, and every class has strengthened the bond and understanding between me and my dog. We are greatly looking forward to taking more classes! -- Anna Simpson and Artemis

Jenn Shaffer with Max and MurphyMurphy and I have been working with Silke for about two years now and it's been a great bonding experience between all of us! I trust Silke completely and have every confidence that she will be totally upfront with us as to our skills...there are no holds barred here, which is what I want. After all, the only way to learn how to do it right is to hear it honestly - and it's not only honest, it's loving too. Silke loves the dogs and handlers and genuinely wants her pairs to do their best, but she never pushes beyond where the skill level is. She is all about the training and not about the reward. The fun is in the training! The more practice and the more that confidence is gained, the better each team will perform and the more comfortable we will be. I don't know if Murphy and I will get to a trial, but I do know that if we do get there, it's because we are ready and because Silke has deemed it so! Next is Max's turn!! -- Jenn Shaffer with Max and Murphy
