I am more than delighted to have Dr. Winter
as my veterinarian. He is a calm and gentle man, (which is most appealing
and comforting to me being I am a bit on the hyper side). He is most
knowledgeable and always takes the time to share his knowledge with me… I am
never made to feel that any question is not important enough to be asked and
answered. Even if I ask the same question more than once, I still get the
explanation again. When it comes to the breeding aspect, he really knows his
business, which is essential for me, being I breed Quarter Horses. My dog
likes him a lot too! All in all, it is a good combination and I feel my
animals receive the best care.

Dr. Winter is very professional and
extremely knowledgeable. He took a very consultative approach in diagnosing
the most cost-effective way to treat our geriatric pony and I appreciated
that most about him.

1.) Linda’s classes begin the first session
with all owners present to discuss their dog, breed and to mention any
problems they are experiencing with them. Each owner benefits from hearing
the behavior issues that other fellow dog owners are experiencing.
2.) The second week of class the owner/trainer is taught how to get the dog
to give eye contact by using the “watch me” command. It is easy to identify
the better canine students because the dogs are highly focused on watching
their owner’s movements and responding to their commands.
3.) Weekly, detailed handouts are distributed outlining the training
schedule for each class session. Emphasis is placed on the importance of
owners training their dogs each day.
4.) She emphasizes positive reinforcement when the dogs do right and gently
but firmly corrects them with the training collar (not electronic) when
5.) By graduation time, the dogs have mastered the following commands:
Heel , Sit-Stay, Drop-Stay, Stand-Stay,
About Turns, U Turns, Recall/Come,
Quarter Turns to the Right/Left
Off, Free, Here
Consequently, as pleased trainer and owner, my nephew and I most highly
recommend Mrs. Winter’s classes without reservation! We have been
tremendously happy with the results, now having two wonderful Labradors who
are incredibly great companions, even under varying and challenging
situations to which the dogs have been or may someday be exposed!
