Karen is simply a miracle worker. I wish I had started with Karen three years ago when I first got my dog. I tell EVERYONE who is getting a dog to use her.
The results have been incredible – our little guy who used to be afraid to leave the house and would bark his head off at children playing outside is now able to confidently go on walks, pay attention to us instead of stressors, and be his goofy self.
Karen helped us achieve something we were worried was not possible, and it has made an incredible difference in our lives
I’d had my rescue dog, Henry, for six months and his fear aggression and reactivity was steadily getting worse. The worst had finally happened and he’d bit someone. I had spent thousands on other trainers but the results were short-lived and never stuck.
After training with Karen we took our dog with our friends to the farmers market he didn’t lunge, growl or bark at any single person, he was a completely changed dog. We owe that to Karen for tirelessly working with our dog and equipping us with the methods that we need to help him be successful in situations that scare him. I cannot recommend Dreamy Skies more.
Karen has been pleasure to work with. Before Karen we had an extremely reactive dog. Our pup, Isis, would bark, growl, pull, jerk around and do a kangaroo walk anytime she saw another dog. Under Karen’s guidance our Isis no longer does any of this behavior. This was our third trainer. If we knew about Karen, would have saved time and money.
My pup had severe separation anxiety, bit us numerous times in the first few days we got her, would growl at us and be aggressive about her toys and treats, and sometimes was scary to be around even though she was small
We tried everything with our Lab mix, Kona, but she just kept getting more and more dog-aggressive and was just too much to handle. Car rides were a nightmare. Not only was it stressful and embarrassing to take her anywhere, but it started rubbing off on our other dog
Our young German Shepherd, Leo, was getting more and more out of control to the point where our kids could not walk him and it was SO stressful. Leash aggression, barking at the door and visitors – and we could not get him under control.
The training was mostly about us as owners and how we talk to our dog, how we give her feedback, when and how we praise her, and how we teach her what behaviors result in positive experiences.
