Wendy J. and Ian, Berkeley, CA, August 2012
I met Kaellyn shortly after adopting my small mixed-breed terrier, who came to me with minimal training.
I love having Kaellyn walk little Ian – she has a genuine love for and interest in Ian’s well-being, and has taken an active role in providing training support, and trying new ways to motivate our stubborn little terrier. Kaellyn appears to have an intuitive understanding of how the doggie brain “operates” and how to gently motivate and encourage him. Kaellyn has wonderful ideas and is continually contributing to Ian’s progress through reinforcement, encouragement and positive feedback – there has been a noticeable difference. Ian is much happier and noticeably calmer on the days that Kaellyn walks him; and it is obvious that he just LOVES Kaellyn!
Having Kaellyn walk Ian regularly has been a true blessing for Dog and Woman – she offers encouragement and support for me, and keeps me on top of doggie and training activities – we will be attending a training class together later this year. I also like that Kaellyn keeps me updated with thoughtful notes about her time with Ian, such as interaction with other dogs (length and quality), response to voice commands, number of poops (!) -- the important things I would never have thought to ask!
