One session and Carrie had my confidence and that of my two dogs. Her method of positive reinforcement and teaching skills showed incredible results after one hour. She is available to answer any questions between sessions and is so knowledgeable. The female dog I rescued had no impulse control,was aggressive and had attacked my other dog,but she loves people, is smart and recovering from abuse. Today both dogs are playing together in the back yard and since she is blossoming,I've changed her name from Lucy to Blossom,Blossie for short and she has her furever home
I want to leave a review for Carrie after having experienced working with such an amazing trainer. My story is actually sad-as I was in-need of a service dog for quite some time. I ended up going to the shelter, just hoping to find any dog that would fit but sadly I found no dog until my third trip, when I found my Fife, a black perfect little poodle. I knew she would make a wonderful service dog for me, but I needed someone to help me train her for which I needed her. I surfed for countless days through trainers who offered their training at an oddly low price and many of them had no clue what they were doing. I met Carrie when she sent me a quote which was really reasonable for service dog training, which entails a lot of dedicated work. Carrie walked me through the process, was extremely knowledgeable!!
What I liked about her was the fact that she was so knowledgeable and would help, but also expected you to work with the dog to get them to the point where they would perform well as service dogs. Her methods are impressive and her Labrador is a wonderfully trained dog, who is a great example dog in terms of what Carrie truly knows. I really think anyone who needs a service dog needs to meet Carrie! You won't be disappointed. I was not!
Ms. Abrams worked as my dog trainer for my three great Danes', who each had their own behavioral problems. One of my boy Danes', named Albert was one of the more problematic of my dogs and I actually was on the verge of giving him up-but after I met Carrie, I truly started to learn new methods of behavioral modification and how to work with a troubled dog-such as him, with a past that he had before I had adopted him.
I am really impressed by Carrie's methods I believe that my time spent with Carrie and her methods of training helped me learn how to change my entire mindset to my dogs. I highly recommend Ms. Abrams as a professional and quality (one of the best in Colorado) dog behaviorist to help you work through any behavioral and training ailment which your furry family member brings to the table.
In rating Carrie as a professional and diligent behaviorist and dog trainer, I would give her over five stars, if possible. I met Carrie when I was at my lowest point with my dog-Daphne's behavior. Daphne is a Basset Hound, and as we know, Basset's can be, according to me-stubborn. However, when I met with Carrie, she informed me that there are no stubborn or hard-of-learning dogs, I was so impressed by Carrie's devotion to my dog's overall behavior, I am so impressed with how Carrie takes the fundamentals of behavior and dog psychology, and uses these foundations to best work with the animal.
. I am very impressed and would recommend Carrie highly to all those needing a dog-behaviorist.
Carrie is outstanding as providing the specific training I required for my dog Dakota and Australian Shepard. Her patience and methods are excellent. I would highly recommend her.
**Carrie responded to my request immediately. She uses positive reinforcement as her training method. She is very kind and supportive. I feel very lucky to have found her.
Carrie's knowledge & compassion for animals was immediately apparent in the way she handled Riley at our first meeting. My little dog had just run out the front door & down several streets before I was able to catch her - this was 30 mins before Carrie arrived - she immediately began our session by dealing with this issue, knowing I was terrified of Riley running into traffic or being stolen. We have been working on all the training lessons 'homework' Carrie left us with & I can already see positive results. I'm excited to continue our training knowing it will keep Riley safe in the future. This is also training me to be a better parent & will build a stronger bond between us. Thank you Carrie!!
