What Den’s Clients Say…

I had the privilege of taking two of my dogs through classes taught by Dennis Champagne.  Lili went all the way to achieving her Canine Good Citizen certificate and I couldn’t be more proud of her!  A great trainer should not only be a positive inspiration for dogs, but must also connect with and educate their human.   Dennis encompasses both of these qualities and we highly recommend him!

We began working with Dennis two years ago, when we adopted our pit bull Lady.  We went through a couple of obedience courses and were able to obtain Canine Good Citizen certification for Lady.  And even after that we continued to attend various classes- obedience, rally and scent.  Lady and I always enjoyed Dennis’ classes! He is very easy to work with, always willing to listen and help the dog and the owner!

There are a lot of training clubs that promote negative, harsh, inhumane training methods with the use of forceful checks, prong collars and dominance.  I heard about Den’s Dog Training through much research and Dennis truly is a positive reward based trainer who genuinely believes in his methods.  My three Collies and I have attended Better Manners, CGC and Rally classes and have enjoyed each and every class.  One of my dogs I adopted at 8 years old had not been socialized or had any type of training.  She has excelled and just loves Dennis’s classes. All my Collies happily look forward to attending all of Dennis’s classes especially Rally.

3 years ago we rescued a traumatized 1 year old Shellie.  She was put on med 3 to4 times a day.   Having been through Dennis’ classes with our other 2 Shellie’s I called him for help.  Eight months later with Basic Manners and Better Manners class she was off all meds and doing great. She was even the star of her CGC test day.  Thank you Dennis for your support and positive training for all the dogs and their people.

Both my dogs have gone through a variety of Dennis’ classes and the experience has been consistently productive, positive, and FUN!  As a colleague, Dennis and I have discussed training and behavior concepts and their practical applications; we’ve shared insights, frustrations and break through successes!  

Dennis’ training is always tailored to each dog and handler’s needs, has humor, clarity, patience and insights.  I’m proud to call him a colleague.

My Polish lowland Sheepdog Rocky received his CGC under the patient eye of Dennis Champagne.  We are currently enrolled in a Rally Obedience class which is the new trend in obedience training & tons of fun for Rocky as well as for me!!!
