"Great for our reactive pup AND us!!
We learned so much just from attending the clicker training (orientation), and Andrea made it so easy that we signed up for more lessons. What we learned has had a huge impact on Millie even after only 2 weeks. It has also made a huge impact on us. We feel more equipped to manage her behavior and feel like we are making good progress that is good for her."

"I first worked with Andrea when I needed to complete the SKN when Bella was a puppy. We both thoroughly enjoyed the class and learned a lot. We have since returned to attend the Doggy Fitness class. I love the fact that I can drop Bella and go run errands, etc and return to a happy, stimulated dog. Andrea goes above and beyond with the training and always has plenty of advice. For me this class is super value for money and I try to bring Bella twice a week."- Susannah C.
"I highly recommend Andrea. She is amazing with dogs, it is
like she can speak their language. My dog Cosimo loves her very much and
he was always very happy to have the trainings with her. Andrea is very
patient with both dogs and owners at the same time, she helped me a lot
with understanding dog behavior, which gave me the confidence needed to
live with a dog. I am a first time dog owner so having the trainings
with Andrea made my life much easier. My children were also involved in
the trainings and they told me: “When we grow up, we hope to have a
job we love as much as Andrea loves her job”, and I think that says a

"What I love about Andrea is that she
is so eminently practical. Nothing airy-fairy just honest to goodness,
practical help. Her tips and advice are all do-able which is a huge
consideration. Andrea inspires faith that things CAN and WILL GET BETTER.
I thank the good Lord every Saturday morn that we have her. "

"We came to Andrea to see whether
individual training session will fit us better as compared to group lessons.
After being at a puppy school with our Australian Cobberdog we wanted to get
some tailored and individual training. The objective was to adapt the training
according to the needs. This is not so feasible in a group session! We have
been 3 times at Andrea’s training room and we enjoyed every minute! It is
indoors and we can train with the entire family. This is very effective and our
dog as well as us do learn a lot! Very efficient and also simple to train
further at home! Andrea has a lot of experience and we receive a lot of tips
around everything how to properly raise a dog."

“Andrea Dannegger is the best dog trainer I have ever worked with! We’ve had many dogs over the years and have tried many different methods of training. Andrea is the first trainer to focus on the importance of using motivation and teaching owners how to communicate with the dog. This has given me a much more rewarding relationship with my standard poodle!”

and I would highly recommend Andrea. We met Andrea when we adopted a rescue
puppy from Hungary. As first-time dog owners we wanted to ensure that we
understood the needs of our dog. Andrea
was great, she is very knowledgeable & was always supportive if we had any
questions. We really appreciated how she taught us how to reinforce positive
behaviours. Andrea cares greatly for the dogs and their owners that she trains!
Through her experience and expertise she helped us to understand what motivated
our dog in a positive way. We found our training sessions to be fun and rewarding
for both us and our dog."

"I got in contact with
Andrea only a few days before getting Penny, our new family puppy. She was
immediately available to introduce me to the puppy world . As I work full time, she was also extremely flexible
with the time and she shared some material I could read on my own straight
away. What I really appreciated about her is the fact that she makes the theory
down to earth, giving always examples you can relate to. To make me understand
how important sniffing is for dogs and how pull your dog is disrespectful for
your four legged-friend, she for instance asked me to imagine how I would feel
if in the middle of my favourite program on Netflix, someone just switched the
TV off. Andrea loves dogs and she is very passionate about teaching humans how
to really respect them. Whether you are about to get a dog or you simply want
to know what it will be like to have one before you commit, Andrea is the right
person to contact."
“I took my puppy to group
puppy classes but teaching “sit” and “stay” was not very helpful when the puppy is
jumping on houseguests, barking at the doorbell, chewing furniture and stealing shoes… Andrea
teaches practical house manners and gives useful management tips (x-pens and crate training) that are
vital for day to day living with a dog -- especially a puppy like ours (see photo)!”
