"Carolyn's feedback has made learning and implementing K9 conditioning possible for novice owners to seasoned. Her individual commitment to my individual progress is the secret sauce. My dog is safe in Carolyn's hands and I am learning life long skills the right way for the right results."

- Glenda Ausmus, Current MCR Pack Online Student

"The feedback has been so detailed and on point. I have significantly cleaned up some mechanics (though still a lot to work on) and am developing a keener eye for appropriate posturing/positioning. I learn a lot from watching everyone else’s videos and reading their feedback, too."

-Jan Vlasak, Current MCR Pack Online Student

"I was searching for a way to help my agility heart dog Ziv improve his physical abilities and prevent new injuries since he had just came out of two at that time. Our experiences with local rehab weren't the best so finding McIntyre and knowing it offers the online consult was just perfect for me! I sent all the infos, videos and pictures Carolyn asked for and we had a very nice conversation after she explained to me all that were in her report. Since than we started applying all the exercises to our routine and it has been amazing! We already had a follow up consult and I love the results."

- Gabriele Almeida and Ziv, Brazilian World Agility Team Member

"The class format is so very easy to follow and the information concise. I loved that the descriptions and videos of the exercises were to the point. I don’t like spending a lot of time reading and watching videos—I want to be working my dogs! I also really appreciated that Carolyn suggested various pieces of equipment so that I didn’t have to have exactly the equipment that she was using. I am a HUGE fan of canine conditioning. I think it’s up there with agility skill training!
