I pride myself on making close, working relationships with my clients. Here are some the their testimonials.
Amy, Overland Park KS- MacKenzie is amazing! We adopted a rescue dog that ended up having some aggression issues. I called her on a Saturday evening crying and she talked me through it. She came to my house the next day on a Sunday afternoon to help us. I wasn't sure we would be able to keep the dog but after one hour MacKenzie changed our lives. She gave us the tools necessary to manage the dog and we are currently in a great place. Looks like this will be a successful rescue adoption because of MacKenzie's help.
Jeff, Gladstone MO- I have really enjoyed working with Mackenzie! She has done wonders with my dog Rocky. He's learned to walk on his leash and wait at the door. He's also doing great with potty training and it's only been 2 lessons! I can't wait to see how he is in another couple weeks. Even our neighbors are noticing and making pleasant comments about Rocky!! Thank you Mackenzie!!!
Jeni, Mission KS- We are grateful for Pawsitive Speak Dog Training. Mackenzie takes her time getting to know the dog and the humans to help train both on positive communication skills. We have a young, 80lb pit mix who is very strong and protective. We saw a remarkable difference just after the first training session. We recently finished our fourth and final session. We now have a better understanding of his body language and he understands our expectations. Our walks have become more enjoyable. He no longer pulls, or lunges. He understands basic commands and demonstrates great manners around other humans and dogs. Most important, Mackenzie gave us the confidence and knowledge we needed to continue working with our dog on our own. She is gentle, kind and full of helpful information.
Lori, Olathe KS- Mackenzie came over to help with our very fearful puppy. She explained a lot about his behavior and gave us a plan to proceed and train him. By following her advice, we have seen a lot of improvements in him already. I highly recommend her!
Lauren, KC MO- I HAVE to share the experience we just had with our new trainer - Mackenzie Ryle of Pawsitive Speak Dog Training!!!! There aren't enough words to describe how amazing she is!!! We have worked with MANY trainers over the years... like a lot... and not a SINGLE one has been as knowledgeable or as effective as Mackenzie!!!! I could cry I'm so excited !!!! Just one training session complete and I'm in awe. If you struggle with your dog being reactive at all, you need to contact her!! Even if you just want a confident, happy dog- contact her!! We can't say enough good things. She will change your life (and your dogs!). We promise!!!!
