As first time dog owners, we knew we wanted to start our rescue puppy off on the right "paw" with some training - not only for her, but also for us to learn what to do! We love Noble Beast's dog training philosophy of positive reinforcement and their focus on small group training sessions. We started taking her to the free puppy socialization classes and continued with training classes. Each week we worked on basic commands and skills and practiced what we learned with "homework" each week. We enjoyed working with Elly (our amazing trainer for the Delightful Dog class), so much that we signed our pup up to keep working with her in group day training. The trainers and staff at Noble Beast obviously love and understand dogs! We especially appreciated Elly's calm and positive energy and all of her training advice and expertise. Training has helped our rambunctious pup focus her energy in a positive way (and helped us communicate and bond with her more too). We still have some things to work on, but she's on her way to being a happy, socialized, well mannered pup thanks to Noble Beast!
