Coach Pauli Beckmann's Testimonials

We looked forward to our Saturday class every week! Pauli was easy to talk to, she was helpful and all her answers made sense. She tailored her approach to each dog and their handler. I thought it was a well rounded class.

I want to say thank you for an excellent Obedience 1 class! There are a lot of unknowns as a first time dog owner, and your class was so helpful! Your teaching approach was both productive and calm, and both your skill with dogs and your love of dogs came through as you incorporated the different dogs from the class into your demonstrations. Rudy and I learned so much!

Thank you again.

All the best to you,
Donna S.

The fitness class with your dog was a blast! We will be back!

The training was very helpful. I was actually at Petsmart yesterday buying crickets and I had Gussy with me. There was an adoption event and an obedience training in progress. Gus was a model citizen and I put him in a down stay. The instructor for Petsmart came over and complimented me on my well behaved dog. I had Gus do a Sit from Down and he hopped right up. She was impressed. I told her he was trained at Canine Coach and she said. “Yes. They are like the top rated training school in Minnesota.” Props from the competition. Regards to the team that you have there. Good, confident people. Blair and Pauli were fantastic.

I have been taking classes at your St. Paul location with my Australian Shepherd. We first completed obedience 1 with Pauli and are now enrolled in agility with Pauli as well and we are loving it! The K9 coach has been a great resource for me and my puppy, and Pauli is such a knowledgeable and skilled trainer that we’ve felt very comfortable and in good hands from the start.

I really liked how calm, patience and in control Pauli was throughout the classes. I never felt rushed and yet she managed to move us along to the next lesson, regardless of the distractions.

Level I Obedience Class Feedback
I just want to leave a quick message. I took a walking nicely on a leash class last May with Pauli and I can't speak highly enough of Pauli. I had a very positive experience with her, she's a great person. With the experience I had with Pauli I will definitely come back to the canine coach in the future. Like I said I can't speak highly enough of Pauli, she's a great person.

Thank you,
Dave H
Thanks for the wonderful experiences we have had thus far with Pauli and Blair.

I took the Leash Walk class with Annette and I am still in Obedience I classes right now. I also took Puppy classes with Pauli and Jennifer. I LOVE all the classes, they are all so good. My dog Mickey loves them too. I will highly recommend The Canine Coach to anyone who wants/needs dog training.

Thank you!

Cannot say enough good about Canine Coach. We've brought our rescue to the Saint Paul location and we are on our 3rd class. I keep looking for new classes to sign up for, ( just signed up for agility. ) Our first class was leash training and the improvement of our dogs leash walking skills was so impressive after the first class. We have since done obedience 1&2, and each one has done wonders for our dog. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and patient as well as available for questions anytime.

I recommend Canine Coach to any dog owner. Keep up the good work!

I have gone through puppy kindergarten, level I, level II, loose leash walking, and CGC courses all within the past 8 months with my one year old German Shepherd and will be starting agility for fun in a week so I thought it was about time to write a review! This company is AWESOME. I've had three different trainers (Annette, Maureen, and Pauli) and they've all been spectacular at what they do. The trainers know how to tweak instruction to better suit you and your dog individually and also fully understand dog body language so thankfully none were put off by my very talkative, but very friendly GSD. I would recommend Canine Coach 100x over!
