"I just finished Wag It Games class yesterday and want you to know how much I have enjoyed these classes. Fionn and I started when he was 10 weeks old and now he is a year. I'm amazed at what we have learned. Much of the credit for this goes to Jaimee Hinkley. She is an outstanding instructor. She brings an enthusiasm to her teaching that is contagious. Jaimee is able to give individual attention to each team in the class. She gives helpful feedback and follows through with written feedback. She is creative, funny and serious all at the same time. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it is to work with Jaimee." - Cindy & Fionn
"Dory and I have taken several classes with Jaimee and really appreciate her enthusiasm and depth of knowledge. Her training objectives and instructions are thoughtful and clear and are often happily demonstrated with the irresistible Ella, her JRT. She is aware of each dog and handler team and is able to customize training to their individual needs. We learn a lot and have fun in her classes. She is generous with her time and resources and is truly invested in the success of her students. Jaimee is a talented dog trainer and a caring and delightful person. We are looking forward to our next class!" - Debbie & Dory (Canine Good Citizen!)
"We have been training with Jaimee for a couple of years now and she has earned my highest praises, but the biggest endorsement came recently from our dogs. When given the choice of staying home with my husband who was eating a hot dog or getting in the car with me to go to "class," they ran to the car. I've never known a dog to love anything more than hot dogs, but thanks to Jaimee we now have two who adore going to her classes. She makes learning to do cool stuff with your dogs really fun for BOTH you and your dogs, and is spot on in her ability to tailor her guidance according to each individual. I really appreciate her positive reinforcement teaching by example with her sweet terrier, Ella, by practice in class and in her recap emails after class. Our dogs really appreciate all the fun and interesting activities to keep their bodies and brains engaged year round. Thank you, Jaimee!" - Cindi, Buddy & Bella
