The training we all received has been invaluable.

The website explains the origins of her philosophy of training so I won’t go into it. She has sponsored seminars by Turid Rugaas and other progressive
thinkers on training. Basically the training we received was based on positive reinforcement with treats and clickers. We were made to feel at home
and the classes weren’t stressful or tense. We took our Wheaten there for puppy classes and a few higher levels, but Mookie the Kerry went through
the beginner and middle level classes as a 6 year old. So, I can’t speak directly to the challenge of training a Kerry puppy, although I know if I
had to choose a school for a Kerry puppy, I would choose Carolark.

There was never a suggestion of using prong or choke collars. The instructors were friendly and loving to the dogs, not cold and aggressive as I have seen
at other schools. The instructors at Carolark are there because they want to be … it is more than a job for them.

Many acquaintances in town have taken their dogs to Carolark and

have been very happy.

I have trained there for years and so have several others with Kerries. I

have done conformation and agility and a smattering of obedience. Others have done the obedience.

The owner’s name is Joan. She is GREAT with dog with behavioral “challenges.” She had never
worked with a Kerry Blue before Jenny (Lisiji Juliana of the Jean), but she was captivated by her and how VERY smart she was. We got individual training,
and Joan

even came to our house and worked with us there, and on our normal walking path. And she kept telling us that Jenny would respond to what WE did –
so I quickly realized that she was training US more than we were training Jenny (OUR habits were harder to break than hers!). I couldn’t say enough
good things about Joan. She also trains trainers in his area.
