Gina/PacwestK9 is exactly what you hope for when looking for an experienced dog handler to help train your animal. I own a 4 year old Shiba Inu who has developed a bit of a temperament issue over the years. I used to be able to board him at local doggy play cares centers but after a couple of fights he was no longer welcome. Just when I was about to give up I was referred to Gina. After the first few classes I could see an impact in his behavior and also how I was working my dog in good and bad ways. Gina through tribal knowledge was able to show me how to better handle my dog so we could both enjoy walks, playtime, brushing, ect. I highly recommend training through Gina for any dogs of all ages and owners who have not had formal training. Through her classes I have a better understanding of how dogs think and react to certain situations and how I can be a better owner. My only regret is not starting training earlier - thanks Gina!
