Camp Training Programs

"I brought my English Bulldog to see Ruth. He had no manners--a very stubborn boy with a mind of his own. I enrolled him in Ruth's board and train and she worked miracles! In one month, he was a perfectly trained, obedient dog! Ruth is a serious trainer who understands and loves dogs. She trains by gaining respect not by building fear--a philosophy I was hard-pressed to find elsewhere."    

--Jessica Weiner, owner of "Bus"

"I never expected to get a potty trained puppy in 12 days but what you did for Mimi and our family was much more than that. When she came home I had a puppy that no longer fought the crate and she was on a schedule. As long a I stayed on the schedule she did great....

Thank you for all your help. You really were involved with our family during a time of great stress. You were a pro dealing with our particular dynamics and calming this freaked out owner.

You and your service is great and I just wanted to let you know."

--Karen Tanboor

"I admit I was somewhat skeptical that three weeks of training would produce results in our Mini Pinscher Ernie.  If you know any Min Pins, you know they are incredibly hyper wiyth zero attention span.  The day we picked up Ernie I was totally blown away. He was toned, his coat never looked better, and he showed off his new skills to heel, sit, stay, lie down and even remain calm around other dogs on the street.  My first thought was to check the microchip we put in him as a puppy to make sure this was the same dog.

The daunting task of taking Ernie for a walk is now a pleasure.  He has not had a single accident in the house since we brought him home, and he seems truly happier and far more at ease.  See Spot Run was truly the best investment I could ever have made for my dog."  

--Dave Gelfand, Chicago
