Raffie came to me for a Board and Train and is an enthusiastic young Standard Poodle. He presented problems for his owners because of his high energy and difficulty walking him. He was spending a considerable amount of time in his crate because he was just so rambunctious and he grabs things and runs or swallows them.
The goal for Raffie was to get him out of the crate and teaching him how to be calm on command and exist with his owners in the home. Walking nicely was the first order of business. Through the use of a prong collar Raffie learned the pressure of the collar meant he was to slow his pace. In no time Raffie was walking nicely on his leash with little effort. His owners also wanted him remote collar trained so a leash did not have to be on him constantly. With low-level e-collar training I could communicate to Raffie the same commands he already understood when using the leash. The end result was a great success and I expect Raffie to continue his growth and development.

It is with great pleasure that we write a note recommending New Beginnings Dog Training! We are absolutely delighted with the experience Raffie, our 7 month old Standard Poodle had with Kristi at her home….she did a wonderful job with him. Don’t hesitate to call her if you want your dog trained properly…….showing caring and kindness while getting wonderful results…..she’s terrific and we highly endorse her work. Raffie had all kinds of experiences while he was living with her to board and train over a two-week time period; she’s the best.
I can’t thank you enough Kristi for helping to teach Ninja his basic puppy skills. He learned so much during the in-home session and has been consistent with listening to the commands you trained him. He’s a good boy and now he’s even better! Thanks again.
Thank you Kristi at New Beginnings Dog Training for your recent in- home training sessions. We are so grateful for your help with Bailey. I know he’s still young but he had gotten so out of control. We are delighted that we can now eat in peace and he’s not jumping on everyone who comes over. He goes into his crate now with no problem. We do our homework with him and he is learning the new rules! Everything is so much calmer.
Thank you Kristi for working with my girl Athena. I learned a lot the day I brought her over. She is a hyper girl and you gave me some good information to work on with her. I know she is a work in progress so I am planning on more sessions soon.
Kristi we appreciate your helping us with Noodle and Winston. We are working on the suggestions and making some changes. Winston will have a leash on when new guests arrive and we will control his grumbling and barking. Thanks so much for your help.
Our girl Maggie Moo came to Kristi for some basic training. She learned so much and so did we! Maggie is young and had gotten kind of bossy. Kristi showed us what to do when her energy and bossy behavior occurs. We can now walk her without her pulling us all over the place. We are excited to work on everything you taught us. We look forward to some more training soon. Thanks.
