I was referred to Applause Your Paws by a colleague who sent their puppy to AYP’s doggie bootcamp (board and train). I have two dogs. My male is a 140lb intact Cane Corso, and my female is a 35lb labrador mix. My girl Kika is an absolute sweetheart, but Zeus my Corso was a lot of dog to handle (although also very sweet!). I was overwhelmed by how strong he was, and it made me really nervous how he would react to dogs and people when I was out on a walk with him. I am a personal trainer so I am very strong, but when a 140lb mastiff is lunging, jumping up or pulling on leash it can be very intimidating and overwhelming. I first came into the the AYP Canine Training Center to do private lesson with Dee, who recommended I start group classes with Zeus in order for me to gain confidence handling my over excited boy. After five weeks of classes I was empowered to have full control of my dog while out on walks. Additionally, I enrolled Zeus in doggie bootcamp with Jonathan and love that now I my dog can safely play with other dogs off leash. This was something I was afraid to do prior to working with AYP. I can’t thank the trainers at AYP enough for all the encouragement and support. Whenever I need to board my dogs AYP is my first choice. I highly recommend their Miami based group dog training classes as well as their board and train program for obedience and manners.
You empowered me to be able to handle my big strong Cane Corso
