My dog, Buffy, and I took Basic Obedience class with Carly in 2012. The classes were GREAT and Buffy and I learned a lot—the basic “sit”, “wait”, “come” plus some nifty little tricks like “roll over” and “crawl.” (And in case Carly doesn’t preach this to you enough, the KEY to any training really is follow-through at home!) Carly was obviously knowledgeable , well-prepared, and responsible, but I was most impressed with her ability to “think on her feet”—because arthritis makes it painful to do some of the training, Carly suggested I do a lot of it on a raised area like a bed! And it really worked! I would not hesitate to recommend her classes!

When we became the proud parents of our adorable puppy, Hopkins, we sought out an extremely professional and thoroughly motivated trainer and came to know Carly when she was highly recommended by a friend. Carly, to our pleasure, exemplified both of those attributes and so much more. She was punctual, kind, knowledgeable, caring and, most importantly, Hopkins truly took a liking to Carly and enjoyed spending time with her. Carly never made us feel rushed during our appointments and, oftentimes, would even spend an extra bit of her time to ensure that we understood the importance of following through with what we had just learned because, as she would constantly remind us, in addition to Hopkins being trained, we were being trained, too. The follow-up emails she would send after our appointments were really helpful as a quick reference guide as to what we had just learned. Our time spent training with Carly is one that we would certainly recommend others to experience but, most of all, our time spent with Carly was very much worth our time and extremely fun.

I'm so glad my coworker referred me to Carly to help train my 15 month old pit bull. Walking Diesel was near to impossible before taking this class. He is a very strong boy, so the majority of our walks resulted in him pulling the entire time. After taking the group training class his lose-leash walking has improved dramatically! Now walks are much more enjoyable for both myself and him, and he stays right by my side. He also learned basic commands such as sit, stay, and leave it. Carly is an extraordinary trainer and takes the time to make sure each dog is trained the best way for their own particular learning style. I would definitely recommend Carly to anyone who needs assistance with training their dog. ~Stephanie & Diesel
Carly went above and beyond what already seemed like an enormous job, treating our beloved pet with dignity, compassion, and great skill. We are so grateful! She is calm, talented, and very experienced to handle any care or emergency. God has blessed her! The Rogers Family
