I wanted to take a moment and write to you about our experience with your services and provide a testimony.
At the time of my initial contact with QK, our Golden Doddle “Jackson” was almost 5 months in age 45lbs in weight and growing rapidly. His veterinarian referred to him as a big goofy puppy, my wife and I referred to him as our little possessed pupperdoddle. Quite honestly, we considered the heart-breaking notion of giving him up as he just wouldn’t behave well at all. It was the end of March, I contacted QK and inquired about your puppy programs. Ms. Jessica Velasquez returned my call and thoroughly explained each one of the programs to me and assured me that she could relate to Jackson as well as my Wife and I as owners. She was so positive in her approach to addressing my concerns and left me without any doubt that she could deliver a well-trained companion at the completion of your program. Following our conversation, I asked her to reserve a spot for the soonest opening which was the week of April 22nd. Although I do have to admit, as misbehaved as he was, the thought of sending him away for training was very difficult. Unfortunately, our culture today breeds doubt and lack of trust of others, but there was something about Jessica that led me to discern that she was someone special, someone we could completely trust to manage the care and training of our pup. I wasn’t wrong!!
For my testimony I guess I would like to start by asking a question, “Why in the world is Jessica an Assistant Trainer”? As far as I’m concerned, she’s the “Master Trainer”. Our puppy was literally transformed, the confidence he gained while at QK is amazing. The process we witnessed during our visits was unbelievable. We were besides ourselves every time we worked with Jessica and him at seeing the progress. We realize you must hear this stuff all the time but you need to know that Jackson doesn’t counter surf, grab the toilet paper (or anything else) and run, grab stuff from the waste basket, jump up on anyone, pull on his leash, mouth anyone, bark when he shouldn’t, bolt out the door or the yard just to mention a few of the issues he had before he visited QK. Don’t misunderstand what I’m trying to say, he is very much still a puppy at 7 months and he has his moments, the great thing is how he reacts to the techniques that Jessica taught us in correcting him. Everything is so positive; he even sleeps in our bedroom on the floor or on his new Kuranda bed verses in his crate because we can trust him now. Our neighbors are convinced that we traded him in for a different dog. QK dogs made us a promise and you not only kept that promise; you exceeded our expectations! The small investment we made in trusting QK dogs will pay dividends for years to come. Susan and I are very thankful and grateful for the hard work and loving care that was put into Jackson while at QK. Of course, we would be very remiss not to mention the other team members we met and worked with. Darcy and Patricia were great upon arrival making us and Jackson feel very comfortable, AJ who was so good with Jackson and somehow managed to send him home clean and well-groomed and of course the young man (I forgot his name but did meet him) who fed Jackson daily and we’re sure there were more involved that we didn’t meet.
Sent with much Gratitude!
Walt and Sue Cormier and of course Jackson
