This was without doubt the BEST call we made since getting our new puppy! We are first time owners and was uneducated to say the least! Within 24 hours we saw the changes in our pup that we had hoped for! He slept quietly through the night the very first night we did her program!.... therefore so did we!!!! He didn’t have an accident with her program! Aunt Karen took the time (and trust me to explain everything we needed to know it was quality time) to share with us her knowledge with a free consultation and followed up with us without even asking! We will be absolutely be hiring her consultion throughout the growth of our puppy!! Everything that she advised us to do to make the changes we needed happened!! She knows her stuff!! Check out all her certifications and qualifications because we have learned there are only a handful in NC that have received the same education she has. I cannot say enough good or give enough stars! I would hate to think of what we would have put our puppy through without making the call to Aunt Karen!! She was a blessing! THANK YOU AUNT KAREN!
My husband and I recently adopted liter mates a male and female Rottweiler. At 12 weeks we knew we were going to need some help with these two puppies. I made the call to Aunt Karen and she gave me much needed information over the phone and sent me many e-mails appropriate for puppy training. After our first session we were "hooked", our pups were so excited and reacted so positive to Aunt Karens commands and gestures and loved her treats. We are now into our 5th week and we are so delighted with our progress, we take them to stores, car rides and meet many people. Our pups are relaxed and now socialized to many external environment distractions. It is a commitment on our part as humans to try and communicate with our fur babies. We could not have done this without Aunt Karen's knowledge and patience. If you make the decision to adopt a dog please call Aunt Karen to help you all adjust to this new family member.
This woman has no problem abusing dogs....leaving dogs on the table w a neck harness and going outside to smoke. MANY dogs have been found HANGING by their necks. BEWARE!! She needs to be shut down and arrested in all honesty, js.
Karen is a wonderful dog trainer. My dog immediately loved her, and so did I. I was making things complicated, she made them simple. She helped me understand my dog's behavior and how I needed to fix my own. In one week I have a new dog. It has been a wonderful experience. She goes above and beyond. She even brought over a new crate, pen, Kong, stuffed toy, dinner and breakfast for my dog to get me started. Went out of her way and comes to your own home. She's a blessing. Highly recommend her as your trainer, too.
Great trainer of people and canines. Aunt Karen will listen to your concerns and design a custom solution for your dog on your schedule to address what you need for your family dog! This is not a scripted delivery of info you can easily find for yourself. Aunt Karen is a Certified Behavior Consultant and that makes a big difference in what you are getting for your time and your money!
Absolutely terrible!! She harmed our dog....cut the nail too short and our dog was bleeding and in a lot of pain. She could not walk on her one leg for a couple of days. Her place of business is full of 2nd hand smoke. One time, we brought our dog home and she smelled like smoke.She claims to love dogs....however, when I picked up my other dog....she stated that "you can have her...she is too hipper for me". The dog is a puppy....2 years old.I do not recommend this place at all and will not be going back!
Aunt Karen has helped us tremendously with our Great Dane puppy. She uses a positive reinforcement technique that works well with our gentle giant. Karen is very knowledgeable about dog training, psychology, and physiology. We look forward to working with her now and onward.
Aunt Karen is a savior! Seriously.We (I say we, but my husband would say it was all my idea) brought home a 6 month rescued mutt at the wrong time. With a much older dog, couple cats, 3 year old human child and baby on the way it was bad timing! Meeko was instantly loved, but the stressful time in our lives on top of his anxiety from his prior life didn't mesh well. He was nippy with our toddler, destroying the house and was driving me insane. I spent much of my maternity leave chasing him through the neighborhood. I was done! Then I called Karen and she saved us. She took one look at our life and was basically like "I will help you". First she taught us management - fixing our fence, creating safe areas for him etc.. - After that she trained us humans on how to lower his anxiety. She even bought a stuffed dog you could color on for my toddler. She brought it over and they traced hands where it was ok for her to touch Meeko. I mean, who does that?! She's the best and now she's family!!
Would give 10 stars if I could. She is helping US to turn our two maniac dogs into well-behaved pets. She is so thorough and only uses positive reinforcement. Really Really impressed. Wish we could have her every week for a year!
We knew we needed help to learn to better manage our sweet, but reactive Rottweiler 'Jasmine'. Aunt Karen has been great! Everyone is learning. We have become much more savvy dog handlers through Karen's coaching, and Jasmine loves working with her! One thing we really appreciate is how helpful Karen has been in helping us with resources, information, and support. There is no one I could recommend more highly for working with a pet. Thanks, Karen!
