Happy Clients

Happy Husky | Aspen Family Dog Training | Highlands Ranch, CO

I went to puppy class with my lil chiweenie , Remington. Diane is an amazing positive reinforcement trainer. I shared my concern about my 4 pound dog being around the bigger puppies so she made a “little dog class” it was perfect! Remi couldn’t wait to get to class every Sunday night to see Diane, his friends, and learn so much!

Small Dog | Aspen Family Dog Training | Highlands Ranch, CO

Diane knows dogs! Diane’s classes take you and your dog through each step of training. She helps locate areas of concern and helps determine the best ways to train your individual dog. She’s serious when she needs to be but makes sure the pups and people have a fun in class as well.

Black Labrador Running | Aspen Family Dog Training | Highlands Ranch, CO

We just finished our training with Diane at Wag & Wash. Our Australian Shepherd /collie Suzie did great! Diane showed us a lot of fun ways to train and to make our dog listen. She learned a lot and we will continue to follow thru with Suzie . Diane made it fun and worked with all the dogs in the class. I would highly recommend Diane Pinkerton as a trainer. We were very pleased.

White Dog | Aspen Family Dog Training | Highlands Ranch, CO

The BEST dog trainer EVER!!! I have a 10 year old chocolate lab that was trained with positive reinforcement. Then I got another from the same breeder, and called to get training again. I was so grateful that I already had used Aspen Family dog training, because I agree with how she handles my dogs!!!! I have referred several friends. Thanks again for helping me get through that fun , but very busy, puppy stage!!!!

It’s Going to be Perfect!
