We had Maggi referred to us as the magic trainer for dogs ! The more difficult the better ! That was our intro to her.
She came over and met Jackson our Belgian Malinois, a young dog who was and is very frisky.
She had many great ideas for training him which helped us immensely !
She's very innovative and comes up with ideas that really help which we would never have thought of on our own.
We continue to have Maggi help us with Jackson !!
We have been working with Maggi Burtt for almost 2 years. She walks and trains our 3.5 year old Samoyed, Mori. We were first referred to Maggi by the school where Mori completed his puppy training. Subsequent to puppy school he developed some behavioural issues while he was in doggy daycare. As such we needed someone not only to walk Mori but also a professional trainer who specializes in behaviour modification. We were lucky to find both of these things in Maggi. In the time that Mori has been in her care we have noticed a significant change in his behaviour. Although still naughty sometimes (typical of Sammies) he is overall a much better behaved dog. Most important she has taught me a lot of about Mori and how I can better deal with his reactive issues. Ultimately, she has made me a better dog owner. I can now read the signs and anticipate issues before they even arise. She is a caring professional and I have recommended her to other friends. The ones that have worked with Maggi also think that she is great and have had success working with her. She is highly regarded and recommended. I will continue to entrust her with my furry baby and glad she is part of our family.
Maggi has been walking/training our puppy Ollie for over 12 months now - he adores her and we would be lost without her...! She has been an invaluable resource to us as first time owners, and always has the time to answer even the smallest question. Maggi's expertise and understanding of dog behaviours are evident from the moment you meet her. She identified potentially problematic behaviours and quickly corrected them using simple but highly effective training exercises that we were able to continue at home. We highly recommend Maggi - she is a wonderful trainer and has become a great friend.
