"Thank you for all your guidance in classes to help build a wonderful relationship between Klaus and me. 
I really appreciate your story with "Nica." I don't know if you remember or not, but I met you when I was on my way to pick up Klaus from the breeder and I was buying all of his puppy gear. I had actually just lost my best friend the previous day. I had my Lacey for 7 years. She was a Yorkie and was a retired breeder. She died in my arms in the car on the way to the animal hospital. I still don't know what took her from me, but it was the hardest thing I'd ever had to do. I had asked for a divorce from my husband whom I thought was going to be with forever back in May. He moved out of my house in October and I lost my Lacey Thanksgiving weekend. When I first came home and walked into the empty house, I knew I wasn't going to make it through without a new friend. I felt like I was betraying her, but I knew I needed a puppy. Enter Klaus.
I came into PetSmart with my Dad to get all the necessary puppy supplies before heading to the breeder and there you were on a closed register helping someone, but in all my grief and excitement I didn't realize it was closed. You helped me anyway and asked about all my puppy stuff. You handed me a schedule for for classes and I knew at that moment, I would sign up for the next puppy class you were teaching.
Klaus and I have a wonderful understanding of each other and I really than you for helping teach me how to deal with a puppy. I brought my Lacey home when she was 6 years old so I had never dealt with a puppy on my own. He (Klaus) was definitely work, but he has helped me through so much. I am really excited for the future and all the journeys we will take together.
Sorry for the long heartfelt message but I just wanted to thank you for taking the time with me and going that extra step. I really appreciate everything you have done for us.
Thanks again!!!​​​​​​​ Jessica and of course, Klaus." 
—Jessica R., PetSmart Dog Training Intermediate Graduate
"Christine is a wonderful trainer who took time to get to know each pet and owner's needs. We continue to work on the training of our dog and will enroll him in her next class as soon as our schedules allow."
—Anonymous letter to Corporate HQ, PetSmart Dog Training Class Participant

"Christine was extremely knowledgable and very patient with both the animals and pet owners! She offered great tips to help our puppy meet his goals and it was a real pleasure to be in class with her week after week!'
—Anonymous letter to Corporate HQ, PetSmart Dog Training Class Participant

"I think that the class size was too large for a puppy class. Perhaps that many dogs could be allowed in a more advanced class but it was quite distracting having that many dogs in one class. The trainer (Christine) was very considerate of this problem though so I have absolutely no problems at all with the trainer! She was wonderful!"
