Review for Your Dog's Friend, Rockville, MD, USA
I can't imagine what I would have done without the skilled, caring and devoted trainers at Your Dog's Friend. My little rescue hound puppy, Shayna, loved both the socializing with other puppies and training parts of each class, as did I. And -- this is huge -- when I broke my ankle just a month into classes, I was able to arrange at-home training (extra cost but worth every penny) and guidance in getting extra support for walking and gallavanting in good hands while I was confined to a wheelchair. Classes are limited to strictly manageable sizes, even though they could have doubled enrollment if they weren't so conscientious. Every minute of the puppy socializing is closely supervised by the trainer and assistants, so pups are playing with others of a similar energy level, so all feel and are safe. I feel so lucky to have found YDF, which also offers free supportive lectures to bolster our skills and security as adopters. They really want every puppy to succeed and every adopter to succeed -- which translates into happy loving forever homes.
