Specialty Classes

Kirsten helped us out with our rescue dog Charlie. She is very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of good instruction. Charlie is now more manageable when going for walks and meeting other dogs which makes our time outside more enjoyable. Thanks Kirsten for your kindness and help!

Kirsten was very good with both me and my dog, teaching us both a LOT during the Tails on Trails class that we took with her and the private sessions we did. The thing that impressed me the most about Kirsten was her follow up. She emailed me the homework to me and highlighted the areas that we needed to focus on. She was really wonderful to work with, and I will definitely continue to call her for help and advice in the future.

– Jenn and Mo

Would like to share just how happy I was with the Reactive Rescue classes offered by Canine Minds and Manners. Instructors Tina Sarantis and Kristi Berlin are first rate, and my dog advanced beyond my dreams. We began the class with Dala, my 6+month old German Shepherd Cross rescue, raising her hackles at every bird, bunny, person, dog, piece of fluff that crossed her path. After the training classes we have advanced to walking past people on leash, ignoring magpies altogether and listening and responding to each other. I've signed up for Good Dogs Have More Fun, and look forward to the continued journey. Thank you so much.
