If you are giving or getting a puppy for x-mas, (or any occasion) please consider Brooke Fagel, Palm Springs Dog Training, a stocking stuffer to go along with your new pup! Our "pup" Liebling, who we adopted at 13 lbs. is now nearly 100 lbs. at just over one years old. As she was growing up, her strength and out of control behavior made us afraid to take her outside the house/yard. After Brookes 10 week program, we can now take Liebling anywhere! Although we had to learn the training along with our pup, by implementing what Brooke taught us, in-between sessions, we have a very well trained and very well mannered Large dog! So many sweet puppies end up back in the pound or locked away, (out of site, out of mind) and not really being "part" of your family because of lack of training. That was our Liebling before Brooke and Palm Springs Dog Training. Most people are looking at a 10 plus year commitment with a dog and having a well trained one, a socialized one and really having your pup/dog being able to be part of your family, is so worth it! Brooke trains with "positive" kindness, which is how we are as parents. Please consider Brooke and Palm Springs Dog Training as another part of what is needed in adding a new family member. Our once out of control large puppy/dog is now a full part of our family that we can feel confident and proud to take with us anywhere. Thank you Brooke!

I would like to recommend Brooke Fagel of Palm Spring Dog Training for her outstanding training techniques. She displays a super ability to get and keep the dog's attention. She also "trains" the owner. She takes a personal interest in every aspect of the dog's training. Since my dog had been so abused prior to adopting her, there were two serious issues that had to be addressed. First, she had the bad habit of darting out the door and running off down the street. When pursued she would run further away. Secondly, when she came to live here there were two older Westies already here. She became jealous and aggressive. And on three occasions she went after the oldest Westie. I felt I might have to get rid of her. Fortunately, I had the good sense to hire Brook at Palm Springs Dog Training. And the rest is history, no more darting or aggressive behavior. Thank you Brooke for saving Little Miss Molly.

“My partner and I were seeking training to establish more order in our household after adopting a second German shepherd. We had a 5 yr. old female rescue that was anxious and fearful, which resulted in some behavior issues once we added a male puppy, so we needed this. Our vet recommended Palm Springs Dog Training and after meeting with Brooke, we were eager to start. We liked that as long as we did the work, the support of the trainer would extend beyond the lesson completion, and that we were the ones learning how to be assertive and in control, rather than sending the dogs off somewhere. We had results after day one. Roxy, the female, is vastly improved when we have visitors or we go to visit someone; she no longer nips our guests or barks incessantly, and she’ll even take treats from strangers. Jack is also doing wonderfully. This was truly a worthwhile investment and we are happy to recommend Brooke. We’ll likely be scheduling a refresher when it’s time to bring kids in the mix! We’ve learned more about how dogs communicate and understand human messages, and I really believe that any dog can improve with the appropriate approach.”
