Testimonals

One of the things I have enjoyed most about my training experience with you (notice I said my training experience as I believe I have needed more training than Captain Jack. :) is your calm nature with the people and the pets. It has been amazing to me to learn that when I am calm, my dog (usually) is also calm.  Also, you have provided a foundation for us in the household to ensure Jack is a part of the family and not some kind of extension or nuisance to 'deal' with.  Louise Matthews Melony is a consummate professional. I have brought my dogs over the years to many different trainers and without a doubt Melony is far and away THE BEST!   Douglas Hanley Melony is a wonderful trainer and makes an effort to be available outside of class times!  DN
