Your advice was right on the money! Grif, my baby Beardie made his AKC regular height debut last w/e and got a 1st in JWW and 3rd in STD. He is now focused and loves the game. Seems to have overcome his fears and is showing much more confidence. Thanks so much for your guidance. And I have to tell you, Kira hasn't missed a table since we trained your way! Dee, you are a genius!!! The advice you gave me on Kira was spot on re: the table. I was able to recreate that look in her eyes for the first time outside of an agility ring. AND, I got a sit and a down on the table last w/e and that meant a QQ. I am forever grateful to you! And I wish you well at the Invitational. I'll be thinking of you! I can never thank you enough for that. I am so looking forward to seeing you!!! Bobbie

I have trained with Dee for 3 years. She is fantastic trainer. She ably provides many ways to learn the obstacles. If one way does not work, she is capable of approaching the training situation in a different way so that dog and handler succeed. She is marvelously patient with her students, most of whom start as beginners with no knowledge of agility. She is a great communicator. Her teaching methods use behavior shaping and not negative for the dogs or the humans. My dogs love agility and her. I am so grateful I found her classes. With her guidance, my first agility dog earned her excellent jumpers title within 11 months of her first trial.

I had started agility training with my first dog, MacDuff, in 1998 under a different instructor. While we had success in agility competition, it was somewhat limited. It was not until I started to train with Dee in 2001 that my competitive game changed. Dee is more than just an agility or rally obedience instructor. Sheʼs a coach, mentor and overall dog trainer. She has a remarkable knack for understanding human and dog interaction and can precisely troubleshoot an issue. Since training with Dee, I have completed MacDuffʼs AXJ, MX, MXJ, MACH, MACH2 and am working toward MACH3 with confidence. MacDuff has qualified for AKC Agility Nationals every year since 2002. He has also ranked as the Top Male Border Terrier in MACH points and double-Qs every year since 2003. I seriously doubt I would have achieved most of these marks without Deeʼs persistent coaching. Dee has also helped me, immensely, with my second dog, Robbie. Robbie takes a lot more behavioral training and coaching from me. Iʼve relied on Dee a lot to help with Robbieʼs training in all dog competition. Thanks to her training I was able to put a Breed Championship on Robbie (CH) by myself. Robbie has also achieved his agility titles through his MXJ. Dee is an outstanding instructor, wonderful coach and good friend. I would recommend her as a trainer to anyone. :grin

I have been training with Dee at All Fours Dog Training for almost 5 years now. I started when Pebbles was just only 7 months old and have not stopped. Training Pebbles in Agility has provided her with great outlet for energy as well as increasing her obedience training. Dee has helped us overcome many of the typical Airedale disobedience in a fun & positive way. Because of Dee's wonderful class training, Pebbles and I recently entered our first agility trial and received two first place ribbons with two qualifying runs. We have recently started training in Rally-O Obedience with Dee which has continued to truly help Pebbles and her handler control all of her energy. Another great thing with training at all fours dog training is the great team which is always so supportive.

I've trained three dogs with Dee now it's been a revelation. My Shelties in particular have gained as much in confidence as they have in speed and accuracy; one has earned a boatload of Beginner's titles and I hope to begin competing the other soon. Dee's secret is that she pretty much uses the same methods to train the trainers as she does on the dogs. All very positive, energetic & fun. I can't imagine training with anyone else.

I started training with Dee three years ago, starting as an absolute beginner. We come for the fun an excercise, both dogs and owner enjoy the classes. Dee is an excellant and enthusiatic trainer, knowlegable, and very helpful. She takes a personal interest in all her students, and really seems to know what makes each dog/handler team tick. It's amazing how easily the dogs learn the most difficut tasks under her guidance:grin
