Reviews for Your Dog's Friend

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer as well as a (lost) pet tracker, along with my tracking dog, Leah. The resources offered by Your Dog's Friend, from the documents on their website to their free seminars, have vastly broadened and improved my knowledge of dogs, especially because they offer lectures on specific topics rather than just general knowledge. I learned an amazing amount from them before I was a certified professional, continue to do so now that I am certified, and refer all of my clients to their resources.

I commute 2hrs one way to attend the amazing and informative workshops offered by YDF. The knowledge and experience offered at these workshops is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to learn more about dogs. Whether you are looking for training advise, behavior issues, diet recommendations, and much more, this is the place to go!

Your Dogs Friend provides an invaluable service to rescue dogs and their owners. I am a dog trainer and adoption coordinator for a local humane society. Your Dogs Friend provides workshops, seminars, and training classes designed to make the dog adoption process a success. We've used their services many times. Margie Dowsett

YDF has been unbelievably helpful in providing seminars for both professionals in the dog rescue field as well as dog owners in general. Their training approach is gentle with positive reinforcement methods emphasised. We have learned an incredible amount about how dogs think from their speakers and classes. And they provide a free seminar series as well to help reach the largest number of people possible and help change the perception and treatment of our canine companions in society.
