Remi,

German Shepard

Our dog was so naughty, jumped on the kids, always barking. We could never take her for a walk due to the pulling and jumping on us. After 1 week we were able to finally have some peace with her. The jumping was better and all around a nicer dog. After 2 weeks we could go for walks and if called she would come and would not jump but sit nicely for being pet; it has been amazing! Carla, we thank you so much!

Jazz,
German Shorthaired Pointer

We sent our 1 year old German Shorthaired Pointer to Carla for two weeks of in board training (K9 Camp package). He came back listening much better and a joy to take places. Having her lay the foundation of his training down and give tips to keep the training in place have been great for me and our dog. I love the additional polishing classes and adventure classes that she holds to give me other opportunities to practice his skills around other distractions. For my family's next dog it's going to be Carla and Ladd K9 from the start. Thanks so much for all of your work in making our dog an absolute joy to have around and behaving well enough now that I no longer dread doing anything with him.

Nash,

Black Labrador Retriever

We have nothing but great things to say about Carla and all that she does! We brought our black lab puppy to her for the 2 week program and when we brought him home he was all that we expected and more! We definitely 5/5 recommend anyone to bring their dogs to Carla if you are having difficulties or just need a little extra help in the training process like we did! Carla does amazing work!!
