My 3-Year-old GSD, Izzy, and I have been involved with Rettungs-Haus Shepherds for about 3 months now. I can’t say I’ve met a better group of people than I have here at RH. The dedication and love shown by Rettungs-Haus toward their dogs and RH family is inspiring and contagious. Izzy and I go to every obedience and SAR training sessions available to us. We simply can’t get enough. I can’t wait to start fostering, training, and adopting the amazing dogs she rescues when no one else will.
Something I’ve taken from my experience with Rettungs-Haus training is that every owner and their dog have their own set of “issues”. They could have aggression, fear, separation anxiety, intense energy, or maybe even no issues at all. Antoinette takes you, your dog, and your issues just as you are and helps to solve those important to you. She teaches you how to be confident, clear, and consistent with your training. You and your dog come out with a relationship based on mutual respect, trust and understanding. I’m amazed with how much improvement I’ve seen not only with me and my own dog, but also the others in class.
My only regret is that I waited so long to get involved with Rettungs-Haus Shepherds.

We searched for years to find a dog trainer that could help us with our dog-aggressive dog. Unfortunately, every time we got in contact with someone, they would stop responding once they learned he was part pitbull, or would tell me aggression is usually unfixable.
Everyone at Rettungs-Haus has welcomed us with open arms since day one. Also, compared to other quotes we’ve received to work with dog aggression, they are extremely reasonably priced. After only 4 sessions, we’ve seen a drastic difference in our fur baby. I’m no longer fearful to walk him alone, and his confidence is higher than ever. He’s been within a foot of other dogs in group classes; something I never thought would be possible in the past. We’re working toward a goal of adopting another dog, so while he’s got a long way to go, he’s already gotten to a point I never thought possible.
Thank you to the Rettungs-Haus family!

I have been training with Rettungs-Haus Shepherds for almost two years now. The Rettungs-Haus team have been life-changing. Louie was a huge challenge when he was young and I was often afraid to take him places as he was reactive to women, men, and children. I kept getting poor advice from other trainers which made things more stressful for both of us and caused Louie to continue acting out.
