We are more than thrilled with training our little boy, Roscoe Lee, received at Happy Urban Dog. Elaine helped us get him from crazy little puppy to much better behaved young man! We’re all sad that classes are over as we enjoyed Elaine, the other dogs and their owners. What a great class and Elaine is a master! If you need dog training, there is only one place to go, Happy Urban Dog!Lisa D
Love this photo. I can see that her trainer bases her training on positive reinforcement. I really respect your trainer and am so proud of your and Grace’s accomplishments. Please tell her I said thank youFrom Grace’s breeder to her owner
I am sending you my testimonial for your wonderful work with Ruby. Thank you so much for all of your knowledge and helpfulness! I began working with Elaine to control my dog’s (Ruby) aggression around unknown dogs. Immediately upon meeting Elaine, she made me feel at ease and addressed my concerns with compassion. Elaine suggested a particular leash/harness after listening to Ruby’s issues of aggression and her pulling while walking. I purchased the harness and Ruby instantly improved. Elaine used positive reinforcement techniques to help me shape Ruby’s behavior. Encouraging the traits that I wanted to see and replacing the undesirable behaviors with new ones. I would highly recommend Elaine to anyone facing dog challenges. She has a wonderful personality and this is conveyed through her training methods and enthusiasm. Before working with Elaine, I often thought that my dog was problematic. Now, I look at Ruby in a new light. She’s a great dog who is a work in progress, just like me. For that, I am eternally grateful.AC – Land O Lakes, FL
