A tremendous help

Julie has been a tremendous help in teaching me how to handle my 80-pound puppy, Buddy!  While I was clumsily attempting to teach Buddy simple commands like “sit” and “down,” Buddy was teaching me more complex ones (using visual aids!!!), like bringing me his leash when he wanted to go for a walk or a […]

Lucky 2008 150

We’re huge fans

Lucky would not walk out the front door. She would sit down as soon as we put her collar on and she’d dig in her heels if we tried to move her. This has gotten progressively worse over the last few months. Julie had Lucky walking out the front door in the first five minutes […]

The results are amazing!

We wanted to make sure that our new pup, Zoe, was trained from an early age since we knew she was going to be a large dog and it’s no fun when 55 lbs of energetic fur doesn’t behave. We tried the group courses at a local chain pet store and, while great for socialization […]

She obviously loves dogs

She obviously loves dogs

I have been to many group classes, but we never got the individual attention and expertise that Julie provided in her private sessions.  We were able to work on what was important to me and helped make Toby a better behaved dog. I would highly recommend Julie’s services. Besides being very knowledgeable in her training […]

We have seen such an improvement

I am very thankful and fortunate to have taken puppy classes from Julie with Out N’ About Training! Our new dog is a very large breed, so excellent training was imperative to his development. The training techniques used were very effective and easy to implement both at home and in class. The ratio of dogs […]

How to correct behaviors quickly and simply

When we brought our 6 week old yellow lab home, we had no idea what we were in for. He was so cute to look at, but he did whatever he wanted – wherever he wanted! He was fun to play with, until he started biting – and it hurt! Julie’s one-on-one classes showed us […]

A superbly talented trainer

Our dog Mosi has always been a bit of a challenge:  a stray rescued from the deserts of New Mexico, Mosi is very smart, very energetic, and very independent.  But Mosi has met her match in Julie Schmitt. Julie is a superbly talented trainer, and her boarding facilities are excellent.  Satisfaction guaranteed!  Joanna and David

Makes a world of difference

The training we received from Julie has helped Koda become a wonderful addition to our family. We got Koda when she was 11 weeks old. We knew that with her being a Bull Terrier that training needed to start at once. Julie has taught both Koda and us how basic obedience training makes a world […]

They were both in exceptional condition

Our dogs are part of our family. We don’t leave them often, and when we do we are exceptionally selective about where and with whom we leave them. Julie Schmitt watched our four legged children when we went on a vacation recently. We also asked that she help “coach” our younger dog a bit.  When […]

She now responds to commands

We took our Yorkie Chloe to Out ‘N About dog training after high recommendations from a friend. Because Chloe is a cute and friendly dog, our family had completely spoiled her to the point that she got away with whatever she wanted. We hadn’t been able to house train her, she slept in our bed […]
