Daisy Hill Testimonials

Dog Student

"Daisy Hill did a fabulous job of training our German Shepherd Dog or should we say training us humans. Chris has a special gift when it comes to understanding our best friends. She is patient and loving and most importantly takes into account the situation the doggie is in. You will not find a better or more caring and professional trainer anywhere in the Denver area. Chris is an awesome dog trainer!"

"We got a 2 month old puppy from a shelter and she was quite the handful! We couldn't even get her to learn her name. We called Chris and asked her to help us train our puppy with some basic obedience lessons. She came to our house once a week and taught us some easy ways to teach our puppy her name, to sit, to walk on a leash and so forth. Chris was very friendly. Three years later, we got another dog and we had problems introducing this new dog to our other dog. Chris took the time to listen to the problems we were having and offer advice. She was never in a hurry and was truly helpful.”"

"Chris is truly gifted in working both with dogs and people. She makes the training process easy and personalizes it to fit the individual dog and owner. She is always intuitive and conscientious when it comes to finding new ways to work with things my dog and I struggle with, and is able to gauge precisely when it is time to move on to another trick or to take it up or down a notch during our sessions. It has been obvious to me that she cares deeply about the work she does. My dog is always very excited and happy when Chris comes for our sessions, and is extremely responsive to her gentle and loving, yet firm manner. I would highly recommend Chris to people seeking a more enjoyable relationship with their furry companion(s). She’s the best!"

"Chris helped us over a difficult hump with our newly adopted, partially blind Aussie, Ben. She gave us insight into his behavior, and helped us help him settle into his new home. We have all been much happier since our sessions with Chris."

"Our entire family (human and canine) has benefited tremendously from working with Chris Barnhart. She has an almost magical way of bringing out the best in dogs; through positive techniques, she had our dogs playing, smiling, and working through a problem that had been driving us crazy. Chris is not only great with dogs, she's great with people too. She's a true professional, and her training tools are outstanding. We are grateful knowing that we can call on Chris for assistance, whether we are trying to teach our dogs a new trick, correct a bad habit, or understand what they are telling us."

"Our dog, Stanley has come a long way. When he plays now he doesn’t tug, but just drops his toy infront of you and then fetches. We trained him to sit/stay in the living room while we are eating or preparing food in the kitchen. He's done great. Also, we went camping last weekend and the teenage boy that Stanley has snapped at was there. Stanley was his best buddy. Stanley was not aggressive in the least and allowed the boy to pet him, pick him up and sit next to him. Another breakthrough."

"Chris is a fantastic trainer who really helped our rescue beagle become socialized and overcome some deep seated anxieties. Chris goes well beyond what you would get from other trainers because she really loves all dogs!”"

"Our puppy from the humane society was a little wild child. With Chris' guidance on training she has grown into a beautiful loving dog and a wonderful member of the family. We constantly receive comments on how well-mannered she is- especially with other dogs and children. Thank you Chris for all your help with Copper!"

"Our Gordon Setters benefited so much from their basic training with Chris. As puppies spending much of their growing-up time in our retail store, Chris helped us give Dakotah & Kenzie a sound foundation for becoming great “store dogs”. We think the world of Chris and her gentle manner."

"Chris gave me clear, easy-to-follow steps to train Niko, my husky. It's obvious that she has an intuitive understanding of dog behavior and we both look forward to her visits.”"

"We so appreciate what Chris taught our whole family about our new dog. She helped us with so much more than simply behavior shaping, but she gave us insight about how to listen to our dog and understand more about how dogs see the world. Chris was a wonderful teacher to all of us, but especially to our 8 year old daughter who gained new confidence with our 'big' dog. Now she takes a leading role in taking care of Sammy, and loves it."
