Here's what some of our clients have to say about Happy Tails.
Melissa & Henna
I met Andrew at an after school program where we were both working with children and our therapy dogs. We got to talking about other things we do and Andrew brought up hunting. I had just gotten a lab puppy I wanted to do hunt tests with but knew very little about that aspect of the dog world. Andrew offered to help me out, how me the ropes and work with me to get my dog titled.....and the rest is history as they say!
I cannot say enough good things about Andrew and how he works with the dogs as well as their human companions! He came over to my house for a free initial consultation and gave me many things that I could work on with my dog on my own. He has gone out of his way to meet with me evenings, weekends, and weekdays to do what it takes to make sure my dog and I are getting the training needed for the hunt tests. Andrew uses multiple types of training techniques depending on what the needs of the dogs are. I was extremely impressed when first meeting him for hunt training to learn he didn't go right to teaching me an ear pinch to teach my dog to fetch (which is a method I wasn't too keen on) -- he used a much more positive method and let me tell you -- my dog LOVES to retrieve! If an ear pinch would be needed he knows how, but tries other methods first and I appreciated that.
I was also given the opportunity to accompany Andrew on a home visit he was doing with an aggressive dog and I was extremely impressed how he handled himself with the dog and the knowledge he possessed about aggressive dogs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andrew for any aspect of dog training from basic obedience, aggressive dogs, hunt training or anything else.
The Anhalt's & Jack
We met Andrew while I was being walked by our 1 year old Pit mix, Jack. Andrew stopped and gave us some pointers and we immediately signed up for Basic Obedience. We were impressed by Andrew's knowledge and patience, not only with Jack but with us. Jack is now 4 and an amazing dog! I can now walk him off leash! We have a son who is now 17 months and Jack is wonderful with him too. We can't thank Andrew enough, and would recommend him to anyone!
