Client Testimonials

Happy ClientWe adopted Rainy when she was two years old. She was very insecure and timid, she also did not like to be around men. With Silke's help and K-9 Nose Work® Rainy has gained confidence and really enjoys going to different places to do nose work. Being around strangers is no longer an issue for her. Silke has also helped us with Rainy's son Brahms attitude problem. There is no question that Silke really cares about the dogs she is working with. -- Warren and Sherry Walker with Rainy,
New Columbia, PA

"Theo is my 4 year old German Shepherd Dog. He has fear issues with strangers and loud noises. K9 Nosework has helped him be a better all around dog. He gets excited when we head to class and goes right to work, even with the distraction of strangers in the room. Through K9 Nosework classes, Theo has become a more confident, less fearful boy." -- Deb Steward and Theo, Williamsport, PA
