A "note" from past/current Toledo Dog Training students.
I have truly enjoyed taking classes at Toledo Dog Training. My dogs and I have taken classes from basic obedience all the way through the advanced classes of Rally, Target, Freestyle and Really Reliable Recalls. All the classes have been enjoyable, valuable and fun. The classes are taught in a safe environment and by that I mean that Tonya knows who is in her classes, the classes are fairly small and there is also a "no sniff" policy which teaches owners how to get and keep their dogs' attention.
We loved the class, and he really did learn alot (it's me that needs all the reinforcement). Thanks again Tonya. You are such a good teacher, and we had a great time!
The class has been wonderful and we plan to continue working on all of the behaviors we have learned. Thank you for running such an excellent class and making it such a positive experience.
I wanted to let you know it was a pleasure attending your class. We see improvements all the time and could not be more pleased with your teaching. We have already recommended your classes to others and want to thank you sincerely for all your help.
Thanks to you and the distraction training techniques we meet at least 3 strangers and 1 or 2 dogs each trip. Both of our dogs are now barkless at passing people and after the first dog encounter are barkless towards dogs. We hope by the end of the trip the first dog encounter of the day will be barkless as well! Your strategies have made these walks the most relaxing in our two years of coming here!
This is the first teacher/class I feel like we connected with. Thank you for being such a good, up-beat, positive teacher! You have the perfect personality for being a teacher. I felt like we walked away from school knowing something new & I really felt so proud of all my dog's hard work & willingness to try new behaviors.
I am just thrilled with the class that I am currently taking with my young dog. I've trained dogs for years, but haven't worked with a trainer for a long time. The classes are so much fun and it is nice to see all of the dogs having fun and not being afraid to learn new things or make mistakes. I HIGHLY recommend the classes!!
I really enjoyed having a controlled environment to socialize my dog in.
Denver had such a great time and every time we do a class it seems he comes out of his shell a little more.
You have such a fun approach-it is apparent the dogs respond to you!
This was a totally different type of training class than we had been to before & we learned a lot!
Tonya is a genius with canines! She has helped us understand Tillie and learn some great skills together.
I would recommend this class to others.
My relationship with my dog improved during this class.
We have fun learning the different commands and behaviors.
Tonya is always patient and enthusiastic.
She asks all handlers to participate with their dogs at the level that is appropriate for them.
It’s apparent that Tonya loves dogs and knows how to build good behaviors.
Thank you so much for all of your help and patience with me.
I appreciate all of your outside the classroom commitment to your patrons.
The best part was I learned how to teach my dog!
I learned how to read my dog better.
Thank you so much for all the time you spent at our consultation, it was very helpful & informative.
We are so proud of Charlie's progress in class and at home. We were especially proud of how well he performed his "trick" at the last lesson. Thank you again. We are anxious to start the next class.
Tonya was willing to spend necessary time in class with every student to achieve success.
Tonya was helpful with questions & also available to answer concerns & other questions.
I have really felt through Tonya's visits to our home & the classes, she has helped me gain confidence with my dog.
I really enjoyed the class & feel it was a good experience.
I learned that I can train my dog, and that he does want to learn.
As I started the classes, I gained confidence in working with my dog & I felt our relationship and bonding improve.
I have learned how to read my puppy better when he is interacting with other dogs.
Thanks Tonya for everything! We look forward to our next class.
His behavior improved with his training, and we trust him much more.
The instruction was always able to answer questions & was very encouraging.
Tonya was willing to spend necessary time in class to help the dogs achieve success.
Both my dog & I looked forward to our class every week.
I have loved this class & look forward to more!
Class was the high point of my dog's week.
I appreciated the individual attention.
Tonya treated everyone with respect & concern.
My dog really came out of her shell.
Tonya has a very good rapport w/dogs & people.
Thanks for the personal attention! It was very helpful. I loved your enthusiasm.
I really enjoyed teaching my dog to come when called. He loves that exercise now!
We really had no experience training dogs before class. We really appreciated all the recommendations.
The class was very impressive & very well organized.
Tonya-You were a great instructor-loved your positive training!
Thanks a million. :)
The puppy class really helped me to create a stronger bond with my puppy.
