My puppy loves going here and when I pick him up he is exhausted
This place is amazing!!
We were planning on boarding our dog here. The meet and greet went well, we were able to attend a class this evening before we were supposed to leave him here. The reviews had us excited to have our dog boarded and trained here.
One of the guys in the class picked his dog up by the leash, in the air, and carried his dog across the room BY THE PINCH COLLAR as it wriggled. A little later my dog slipped his collar and got nipped at by other dogs (understandable, not upset about that) but as he's walking around terrified, and sits with his tail underneath his leg, scared out of his mind (keep in mind he's normally a very happy and friendly dog) and the same guy who pinch collar carried his dog said that's exactly how you want your dog as our dog is walking tail tucked with a beat into submission terrified look on his face.
We then found out he works there. No way am I leaving my dog there with that.
My husband and I stepped out to discuss it all because we were both feeling very uncomfortable about the situation. I was at the point that I was willing to skip my vacation and stay home instead of leaving my dog there. We agreed that we'd rather find other accommodations. At this point we were still willing to register for their training classes where we'd be handling our dog at all times.
In the spirit of honesty and professionalism we went back for the awkward conversation and without calling attention to ourselves asked the owner if she'd mind stepping outside for a moment.
She stepped out, we explained everything above, emphasized that while we weren't comfortable boarding we would still like to sign up for training because I'd met her daughter and thought she was great. We told the owner, she'd given great tips and we were impressed with her and how well our dog responded to her. She nodded at us.
I went to shake her hand as an apology and thanks for understanding. She kept her hands together and said "that'll be $50."(We were there for half of the session and left because our dog was terrified!) but being courteous and realizing that they weren't going to be paid for the boarding we were no longer doing I said okay and once I said that, she shook my hand but you could tell she was very unhappy with us. Her attitude at the end changed our minds, we won't be coming back for training despite the positive experience with her daughter who does a lot of the trainings we were interested in.
Let me start this off by saying I have been truly blessed to have met this family.
I am lucky enough to be able to work with all three of the Lytle trainers. …
