Paul Klein's work has been especially satisfying in helping me to train my little Moxie! Although I had had experience with many dogs in my lifetime, Moxie was the first to come to me as a puppy when there was no other human in the household. He is also a little dog and my experience was with bigger guys.
After reading a few books, watching my share of Cesar Millan, and graduating from one puppy class, I was still uncertain as to the right things to do for my dog. When I saw an ad for a training class with Paul, I called to ask whether it would be better in our case to have private lessons. I thought Moxie and I would get more out of the experience; I could ask questions and get individualized attention, etc. Happily for us, Paul agreed.
I was immediately impressed as Paul entered the door and greeted an excited, jumping, barking Moxie (manners we needed to work on). Paul's style was relaxed and surprisingly gentle, and he is warm and friendly to the human in the room too. All of my questions - frequently off the topic of the moment - were answered, and I was encouraged to email or telephone him if I had problems, other questions, or needed follow-up. Paul followed through on his promise to email detailed handouts on the various topics we had discussed, and his email was very personable and specific, showing that he had been paying very close attention to me and my dog. We have continued to work together since that first meeting, to my great satisfaction.
I happily recommend Paul Klein without hesitation.
