I highly recommend Yolanda. Foster absolutely loves her. He is always so happy, when she is training him. He has learned numerous commands & tricks, from her knowledge and calm demeanor. Her training has given him the ability to pass the CGC test, Therapy Dog test, and Novice Trick Dog & Intermediate Trick Dog Titles. We are currently working towards the Advanced Trick & Elite Trick titles. Yolanda always keeps training fun for him, which makes it more effective. She takes the time to educate me, so I have the tools to continue training him on my own. Foster has excelled in many ways, from her training. She truly is an amazing trainer!
PS - Yolanda has the best props, from Foster. 🐾
Yolanda is wonderful with my animals, they look forward to seeing her weekly. She taught me so much and gave me lots of advice regarding all things dog!! Her temperament and personality are so sweet and caring, yet she gets the job done! many of the trainers I called before her wanted to use choke collars on my dogs and I wasn't having it! Yolanda uses love, praise and treats! I would highly recommend her to anyone who loves their pups! Yo gonna LOVE Yolanda!! 💜🐩🐩🐩🐱💜
Was able to get training in my home. The dogs understood commands without distractions

Our rescue doberman was relentlessly going after our 14 year old cat, barking at people and quite untrained. Yolanda had no fear of working with her and helping her to understand boundaries, rules and cat behavior! We are happy to say that Roxie had made leaps and bounds with her behavior her from our one on one training. She and Baby Cat are good friends now ( well, Roxie thinks they are! She LOVES Baby Cat, while baby cat feels dogs are beneath her!)
We look forward to our K-9 good citizen group class.
Yolanda is an amazing teacher! We have two border collie pups, well almost adults! 11 months* and she did a great job helping us with them. We have paid for professional dog training before and although effective it was no where as good and comprehensive as Yolanda's approach! She has a way with dogs, she can read their body language and literally understand them in such away that I'm still amazed! The funny thing is that we won a raffle for dog training class at Central Bark Fort Lauderdale and we are so lucky that the training was offer with Yolanda. After the first class we were so please that we signed up right away for more training sessions! I definitely encourage anyone looking for a professional dog trainer to give Yolanda and opportunity to work with you and you furry best friend!
