Dog Training and Equipment sales Testimonials
***I have been working with Christine for the last year on pet and sport obedience for my 16 month GSD, Freddie. To say that she knows her stuff is an understatement – she is a consummate professional and clearly loves what she does. Christine is extremely generous with her time and knowledge - I have left all of my training sessions (whether it be in person or on Zoom) with a clear understanding of the things we am doing well, not so well, and what we need to work on. The results I’ve seen have been amazing – there is a steady improvement in our performance. Christine takes the time to understand the emotion and state of mind of my dog and uses that to bring more power and energy into our work.We have also done a two week Board and Train. Christine and her team were extremely communicative with how Freddie was doing (daily videos and photos) and I felt so comfortable leaving my dog in their care. The progress that was made in two weeks would have taken me months! The facilities that she has are spacious and clean – all the dogs have their own separate runs. As someone who avoids off leash parks and doggy “daycares” at all costs, I am glad that Freddie did not have to interact with any other dogs unsupervised during his stay.The quality of all the products I have purchased from Ruff Dog Sports has been excellent.It’s been a real pleasure working on this hobby with a coach and mentor like Christine. Freddie and I are looking forward to getting our BH in the spring!September 2022
***I wanted to share, Thor is starting to respond to the training methods. There is for sure some push back, but he beginning to get it. We made some great progress on the house rules and his attitude choices yesterday. He's actually happier and beginning to become closer to me, and follow me everywhere now. Oh! And he's enjoying his bones more and spending more time chewing them. Walking is night and day. It's quite enjoyable! His sit and down are better than its ever been before, and he understands what heel means already. Crate training is also coming along. He's been eating his dinner in it with the door shut. Goal is by next Friday, he can spend an hour a day napping in it. Thank you so much, and I can't wait to see his progress after the 4 week b&t!
Thank you Ruffdog!
And if you need training Christine is the best!
I had spoken to many trainers before I reached out to Christine. I got that immediate feeling when I was talking to her that she would be the right one to train Winston. This is a huge thing to do, let your dog be off at training for 30 days! But, I felt at ease with Christine that he would be in very capable hands. Their approach is very white and black, no grey area to confuse the dog. I am so very impressed what they did with our Winston in the 30 days. If you want results, trust the process, and go with Ruffdog Sports!!! You will not be disappointed!!!
I really like your techniques with both dogs, even when there are corrections both dogs came up in emotion and did not lower in their drive. You give a great seminar, thanks again and it was great working with you.

Christine was able to quickly identify key relationship issues and came up with a strategic plan to work on my handling skills for the home and in competitive obedience. I’ve worked with my fair share of trainers and Christine has by far been the clearest in communication. Her ability to relay her thought process and execution of the plan is easy to understand. I was happy to discover not only was she aware of my state of mind but also my dog’s.
Just before working with Christine my dog had to be pulled out of obedience classes because of bad behavior that was escalating very quickly. At home living in suburbia I had to resort to walking him at ridiculous hours in the morning and at night to avoid people and dogs. After the first session I was amazed how much I learned about myself and my dog. I am VERY HAPPY to say today that Ru is one of the best dogs I’ve had, our relationship is clear and happy. I no longer have to walk him in secret and avoid the rest of the world.
I have been working with Christine on a weekly basis for over a year and have seen tremendous improvements in my dog. I look forward to working with her further.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a patient, articulate, hardworking and highly skilled trainer.
