Phoebe of the Fields de la HFF
Epagneul Breton (French Brittany)
Kathy and I wanted to thank you for Phoebe’s Puppy Training. After only 4 weeks with you, she comes when called, heels, kennels, loads up, and is well on her way to mastering “off” and “whoa”. She ranges out to 150 plus yards, quarters well and checks back regularly. As you showed us when we picked her up, she has been introduced to gunfire, is well on her way to being steady to flush, and naturally retrieves to hand. To say that we are pleased with her training would be a huge understatement.
The time that you spent with us during her initial evaluation and when we dropped her off was appreciated and helped ease any concerns we had regarding her care and education during her stay with Backyard Training Kennels. During your weekly calls detailing her progress, we saw the amount of effort and time that you put into each dog entrusted to you.
At the end of 4 weeks, we picked her up and you took the time (over 2 hours) to show us exactly where she was in her training and to educate us in the best way to continue to ingrain the processes that you have instilled in her.
Your willingness to quickly answer any questions we had and assist us in her continued training since her stay ended, is a huge bonus to the value we and Phoebe received from the 4-week program.
Your honesty and integrity are outstanding, and we would highly recommend your kennel to anyone that is looking for a caring and thoughtful trainer for their bird dog.
