What people are saying about Total Dog...
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! Other trainers would not work with Lilly. You saw the real Lilly and gave us hope and results. I understand her reactions now and why she got the way she was. And better, now I am prepared and know what to do. I liked the variety in your suggestions, the clear way you explained things, but most of all, I saw that you loved my dog!"
"All of my dogs (3 now) have taken obedience class through Waterford Community Education. The current instructor (Julie Bennett and assistants) are by far the most knowledgeable and willing to address the needs of the class. Great session and I will be signing up for the next session! Thanks to Waterford Community Education for recruiting Total Dog!"
"I never thought there was so much that went into dog training! I have had dogs before and I don't really remember what we did in class. With this class I am learning so much and it really makes sense! I feel like I know what is going on with my dog so I know what to do. Really liked the information on things like how to buy dog food and why the distractions are so important. Julie is great with the dogs, funny and really knows what she is doing."
"Super fun class! My dog was SO excited to come to each class and I've never seen her go so crazy over anyone like she did with Julie! But then almost all of the dogs practically begged for her attention!"
We enlisted the services of Julie Bennett after we purchased two puppies that are litter mates. The puppies were loving but very rambunctious. They were expelled from Doggy Daycare and the female was kicked out of Obedience School. The wild side of the puppies was interfering with the good side. Julie provided individual instruction for both of the puppies. She was patient and accommodating not just for the puppies but for us. She was able to teach us how to handle the puppies so that we could enjoy their company without the distraction of “puppiness”. We were lucky to have found Julie when we did because we were very close to a decision to give them up. Now we have every intention of continuing with their education and training. Julie was able to show us proper techniques, provide helpful hints and set realistic expectations on handling these two lovable but active puppies. Along with Julie’s teaching techniques, her compassion and loving kindness for the animals is very apparent and added that “something extra” to our experiences.
