Lakewood >Mantayo Kennels & Dog School
Great conformation. Troy is great! He really works with you to get the perfect gait you need to show your dog. He's patient and friendly. I would recommend his class to everyone!
Good conformation, ok obedience.
Very good conformation classes. They have drop in classes and I learn a lot from them. Make sure you bring lots of "bait." They are $7 I think.
I would recommend Blue Springs in Englewood for obedience over A. Melara (at mantayo). Obedience class is required for dogs so make sure you find one for you.
Needs to work on people skills, shouts at people, but not at dogs. Also a little patronizing. Everything you would learn in her class you can get out of "On the other end of the leash" by Patricia McConnell. Takes breaks for an hour class which makes it really a 45 min. class, so too much money for what you get.
Things she teaches: Off, sit, down, stay, wait. Don't grab food from your hand or when anything is dropped, and heeling. First class no tricks are taught. Says she would give away prizes, but I never say it happen.
If your dog has behavioral issues, find a professional, (not an obedience only trainer).
This was not my first obedience class, and I feel there are better out there.
