Barbara G. Clark


Atlantic K9 Training has been a very positive experience for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi and me.  Kathleen O’Connell James, the personal trainer, considered and directed her training to me the owner and the dog to bring about specific correction behavior. 

A heredity instinct to herd cattle, which took the form of chasing vehicles and people as they approached and/or departed, was dangerous and most undesirable. Kathleen corrected this behavior and maintained the dog’s spirit.

I am grateful and impressed. Kathleen takes you through the steps for behavior correction slowly and repeatedly until she is confident you will carry out the demands correctly and there will be no confusion for the dog. She is patient. She is knowledgeable. She is confident.

Her staff is courteous, attentive and prompt to respond—and likable.    

I am pleased to give this recommendation and feel confident owners and dogs will benefit from Atlantic K9 training.
