The Hill Family Testimonial
We began training our Service Dog, Blazey, in March of 2010. At that time she was five months old and ready to work. We were introduced to the WPVH Training and Behavior Center (WPVHTBC) shortly after it opened. The first impressions we got from the center and trainers were very good. Ina, the head trainer, was very knowledgeable about Service Dog work and the techniques for training them. We definitely felt assured that Blazey would get great training. Right from the start we were able to work on Blazey’s ability to ignore distractions, a crucial aspect of Service Dog work. Ina gradually built the distraction levels and now Blazey is able to overcome stressful situations in large crowds. Blazey has been able to enjoy the benefits of private training sessions, group classes, agility work, and the much deserved fun and socialization. Read Blazey's full story here!
Mimi Ford with Dixie
I was recently asked what I thought of the WPVH Training and Behavior Center. Simply put, it allowed our Jack Russell Terrier, Dixie, to remain a member of this family. Dixie is not our first Jack; our family has owned Jack Russells for several decades. We are well acquainted with the breed and what comes with it. Jacks are headstrong, opinionated, extremely energetic, and smart. That being said, you cannot be a known biter and remain a Ford…period. Read Dixie's full story here!
Maximus’ Family on Maximus
The WPVH Training and Behavior Center have been training my rescue dog Maximus for over a year. The WPVH have been the Veterinarians to our family’s dogs for over 10 years, so naturally when we adopted Max the first place we brought him was WPVH. Upon his first visit we met Ina Herbert, the head trainer of the WPVH Training and Behavior Center (WPVHTBC). We spoke with Ina about Max and about the reasons the old owners turned him into the SPCA for adoption. Ina briefly discussed with me how she would approach training Max and how she would address those problems (i.e. chewing, barking, not sitting still, etc.). Read Max's full story here!
