We finally have Thomas as part of our family and love him dearly!! He's a wonderful dog and we couldn’t be happier! Amanda and Jake did an amazing training him. He is extremely well-behaved and responsive to all the commands they taught him. It was so nice to have them here in Boston with us for a couple of days to train us – and they are just as good at training humans as they are with dogs. You can tell they are true professionals! They have a ton of useful information and tips which made bringing Thomas into our family that much easier. - F. Hanenberger
We are recent recipients of a turnkey puppy from Rocky Mountain Bernedoodles. Our puppy Bailee came home at approximately 6 months old and is a perfect puppy. The quality of dog produced from Tammie Rendon at Rocky Mountain Bernedoodles is spectacular. Great disposition, coat, and health. Bright and extremely happy.
Amanda Kramer and her family, Iron Will Dog Training, took Bailee at 2 months old. After 4 months of training, Bailee came home as a trained puppy, still a puppy, who you can be comfortable with in all situations. We were concerned about “bonding” with Bailee coming home at 6 months old, but after 2 days she was a comfortable part of the family. You would never know that we didn’t spend her 6 months together.
Growing up a Veterinarian’s son, I’m very keen on a well-behaved dog benefits the entire family as well as the health of the dog. The turnkey program from Rocky Mountain Bernedoodles delivers this at the Gold Standard. We wish you all the best in your Family’s selection of a new Family Member. – D. Williams
We recently purchased a puppy from Rocky Mountain Bernedoodles who connected us with Iron Will. We are forever grateful! She is a sweet, well trained, and adorable puppy. Amanda and her family were amazing. We are so impressed with the level of Lilly’s training! They sent us and instructional video prior to her arrival. They spent the afternoon with us training us on her commands and providing us with tips to keep up her training. They also successfully helped us introduce our current dog to the new puppy and they are now inseparable. Lilly will start working as a service dog in a Special Education classroom for students with Autism in the Spring. I know she will do great. I was hesitant about the turnkey puppy program because I did not want to miss out on the cute puppy stage and puppy bonding, but we are so delighted that she is still a puppy and has had no problem bonding during her first week. I highly recommend Iron Will for dog training. Thank you for providing our family with an amazing, well trained companion! – C. Flynn
