Melissa and Sophie – 2 year old Chihuahua
Darcie was recommended to me as a fantastic trainer from numerous acquaintances and colleagues who are dog owners. She is sincere, dedicated and knowledgeable. We discussed the behavioural aspects of my dog, Sophie, that I wanted to address, in length, and decided that private sessions would be most beneficial because she is a reactive dog.
After our first session, I noticed improvements in my dog, and I left feeling empowered and prepared to handle situations that could arise. Darcie provided me with many tools and tips to help with day-to-day situations. After five lessons, Sophie is a different dog. Training never stops, and requires dedication, but Darcie guided us through that process successfully.
Sophie is now able to enjoy walks without growling and barking at dogs. She is confident on walks, and she is able to make wise choices on her own. The most amazing part of the journey was when Darcie brought her three dogs along for a walk with Sophie. My dog was a little uncomfortable at first, but warmed up to her dogs, walked with them, played with them, and there were no issues at all! Two months ago, that would never have happened!
My expectations were certainly exceeded with Darcie. Thank you for all your help! Not only will I recommend you to those needing a great dog trainer, but I will use your services again in the near future!
