What They’re Saying

Downtown’s "In House" Training was like a miracle for my 2 - 11 month old labs. The two trainers, Makenzie and Maren were so wonderful! During Chawk and Rio's training for 2 weeks they learned so many "GOOD DOG" manners that our home is normal again. When I dropped the 2 puppies off I didn't think I was going to be a basket case, I thought it would be just fine, but by that night I was clearly more attached than I thought. So the next day I called Makenzie and told her I was going to forfeit my money and I was coming to get my puppies and just forget the whole training thing...but after her talking to me for 20 minutes and her reassuring me that this was going to be a "GREAT" experience for both me and the puppies I agreed to leave them there and she would send me text messages throughout each day for the next 2 weeks to let me know they were okay, so we went forward with the training and I am so thankful that I did. Because of Makenzie and Maren, I have 2 trained lab puppies that are brothers, who used to be non separable, wouldn't sleep in separate kennels, who had to do everything together but will now do things without the other, and will even do commands the first time. (with a little help of a treat...lol) I would recommend DogTown Pet Spa Training (Sandy location) to anyone who is like me and wouldn't trust their fur babies to just anyone. Thank you, again for everything. Shauna, Chawk and Rio
