Maria helped us train our rescue dog. Our dog did not know any commands and did not go for walks. Maria worked diligently with us to help get our dog to walk and learn commands. Maria cared immensely about our dog's progress and we could tell by how much effort she put into detailing out instructions and following up. We believe the results of working with Maria were well worth the price. We would not have gotten similar results in a large class setting. I highly recommend!
Maria Bloch trained our sweet, cuddly and crazy Labradoodle, She is very professional and had great techniques to share with us. She gave us hand outs for each session and homework as well. She shared some great ideas with our family and ensured that our children too were engaged fully in the training. She is diligent and always showed up on time for each session.
Our dog is doing really well and we have Maria to thank for it.,
I hired Maria to train my husband's four-year old dog when my husband became too ill to handle the dog himself. Maria worked wonders with an extremely out of control dog (and just as extremely nervous handler - me!). When my husband passed, and even with such vast improvement my dog was too much for me to care for alone, she took it upon herself to stop by my house daily for walks and reinforcement - never asking for anything in return. Maria is more than a dog training. She is a blessing.
I contacted Maria because my Standard poodle was too much for me to handle on walks. He pulled and jerked and jumped and tried to chase everything that moved. Since I had just had a hip replacement, this was not good! Maria worked with my dog and with me. Now he is much more calm, doesn't pull, and is a much more obedient dog in every way. Many kudos!
