I highly recommend Diane Gallagher as an outstanding, highly skilled dog
trainer. I write this having attended many of her classes over the last
thirteen years. Also, being the owner of Dogwatch of the Carolina Coast (a
hidden fence dealer) I have sought her advice on many dog related issues.
Diane has given me effective strategies for working with dogs. She offers a
wealth of knowledge about training, dog behavior, pet nutrition and
grooming. Because she is so experienced, her classes are very clear and
demonstrate a very common sense approach. Clients who follow through with
her suggestions get results.
Diane can offer clients a wide variety of methods to train their dogs
depending on the situation. She is an e-collar training specialist. I have
been impressed with the extensive field work/retriever train she has done.
In addition, she is very skilled at conformation training.
Currently I attend DOGTRAIN's competition class. We do high level obedience
training. Many of the same people return week after week because we are
challenged yet have a great time working with Diane. She has a great sense
of humor and at the time is the type of teacher who can help her students
achieve whatever goals they wish to accomplish with their dog.
