What Others Are Saying
Sandy at Puppy Preschool has helped me with my dogs on several occasions. She was instrumental in helping teach me how to train my dog to stop play biting, jumping on people and pulling while walking on a leash. Sandy relies heavily on positive reinforcement, both for the dog and for the owner. Sandy makes sure that you understand how to train your dog before she leaves by showing you a technique then having you perform the lesson with your pup so that you know what you are doing and don’t wind up with a lot of unanswered questions. Thank you Sandy and Puppy Preschool.
Sandy Otto and her Puppy Preschool have been a tremendous asset and resource for our hospital and clients. She has trained countless numbers of our patients here and elsewhere, making our job here a little easier and more pleasant. Sandy has conducted a puppy class for us here at our hospital for many years, as well as running her own business. We have always been very pleased and impressed with Sandy’s methods and patience. I would highly recommend her as an asset to any program with training.
Thank you for your recent help concerning our new puppy. Things are going pretty well right now. Your advice and information has proved invaluable. We really appreciate all your help.
Sandy Otto, a well-credentialed dog trainer and owner of Puppy Preschool in Bowling Green, KY, came highly recommended from our veterinarian shortly after we acquired our 10-week old male American Eskimo Dog, Michael.
At his young age, Michael displayed fear aggression tendencies and we knew that a professional dog trainer was much needed. It was evident from our first phone conversation that Sandy was the perfect trainer for us. She was very knowledgeable on the subject all the while being patient with our myriad of questions. We set up the first in-home training appointment to occur a few days later.
Sandy provided us with a notebook containing valuable training instructions, progress notes and “homework” to continue working with Michael between our weekly sessions. Sandy’s philosophy of positive reinforcement training has proved to be very effective in working with Michael over the past 5 years.
We now have two Japanese Spitzes who are full sisters born one year apart, Sachiko is 2 1/2 and Kiku is 1 1/2 years of age. Because socialization is one of the most important factors in raising well-balanced dogs, we enrolled each of our girls in Sandy’s Puppy Preschool group classes at separate intervals. We have also continued with in-home training sessions subsequent to the group classes.
The key to success in any endeavor certainly is consistency and with Sandy’s education, involvement, compassion and professionalism, we strive to continue what she started. Sandy is committed to the success of each of her canine students and their human parents. She is without a doubt our “go to” trainer whom we highly respect and regard. Best of all, our babies love her too.
Thank you so very much for your training instructions and your patience both with the dogs and the owners! I believe you are a born teacher. Your method of teaching reminds me of the “horse whisperers” method of gentling wild horses.
