Client Testimonials

Happy Client We recently brought a new mini Golden Doodle puppy into our family of seven.  With five children and a very busy schedule, we realized we needed to seek some direction in training our exuberant, wiggly puppy to make sure we set her on the right course towards becoming a well-behaved and safe member of our family.  HeRo's in-home Puppy Starter Package was just what we needed.  The sessions were customized to our needs, and being able to train right in our own home and yard was invaluable.  Silke addressed our questions about our puppy's behaviors including jumping on the kids, mouthing, pulling on the leash, and getting along with other dogs.  Because our puppy was showing some signs of bullying towards my mother's dog, Silke even did a session at my mom's home to work on those behaviors with both dogs. The "field trip" session at a local store offered the chance for our puppy to practice her new skills in an unfamiliar environment with many distractions.  Silke was creative and thoughtful in involving our five kids in the training and in giving us suggestions of how to teach them to work with our puppy.  The handouts, websites and resources she provided through the trainings were excellent.  Overall, we found Silke to be knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and gracious.  We hope to enroll our puppy in a group class at HeRo Canine Consulting sometime soon. -- Tami Gabrielsen and Quincy, Danville, PA

Happy ClientAs my introduction to Canine NoseWork, Silke has been marvelous! She is able to combine a wealth of knowledge about dogs, an understanding of canine scenting skills, and a natural ability to teach humans with an approachable, friendly manner to create classes that are both enjoyable (for dogs AND humans) and productive.

Edy and I look forward to every class--I only wish we lived closer than over an hour away! -- Betsy Howell and Eddy, Harrisburg, PA
