  1. I’m curious if you plan to offer any group basic obedience classes for adult dogs in early 2019. I have a 2-ish year old rescue who needs obedience training, and you come recommended by several folks in Bellingham. I see you offer private training by request, but I’m interested in a group setting. Thank you!

  2. We have a 2-1/2 yrs. old terrior mix. She barks at people: walking by our home and auto (she is in her crate), when someone approaches her, when she sees animals on tv, when she hears a noise in the house. She pretty much barks quite often.
    Other than the barking she is a loving girl. Can you help us with this problem?

  3. Hi there! I’m wondering if you offer help with adult/senior dogs, I have a 7 year old chihuahua who I rescued, his anxiety is just breaking my heart and I dont know where to turn

    1. Hi Caitlin, yes I work with dogs of all ages. Please visit the private lesson form, and complete the private lesson form, then you can schedule your own lesson. I am usually booked out about a month.

  4. Hi Christjon, I recommend private lessons, which you can sign up for on the private lesson page. Otherwise, Dog Sense on Facebook might have an answer.

  5. Hello! So, I just adopted a Great Pyrenees who is about 4.5yrs old. But he won’t seem to listen to a thing I say. Are you able to help with him coming to his name and overcoming his fear of the dog bed/dog crate? I’d love to let him off his leash but I’m nervous he’ll run away. Maybe it’s too soon but loads of ladies keep referring me to you.

    1. Hi Catherine, I can help with those concerns. 1st stedp are to complete the private lesson form, and schedule your appointments using the automated system. Both of these are on the private lesson page of this site. Thank you for your inquiry!
