Fast Pup Dog Training at Meeker Days

Fast Pup Dog Training had a great time at this years Meeker Days in Downtown Puyallup! Here are some great photos of the event!

Bojack - the Bird Brain

"Bojack was a runaway bird dog before I found Fast Pup Dog Training. If he ever slipped off his leash I would chase him for hours. Now he is off-leash almost all the time outside and I no longer have to worry about him running away. He still loves birds but I'm in charge now. Thank you Fast Pup Dog Training!"

Testimonial for Fast Pup Dog Training


Wow, I would never have believed it, if it were not with my own dog with my own eyes. When you came over to our home to speak with us and to give us a demo, you asked us what we would want to expect from Harley, our 100 pound English Lab. I said I wanted to be able to walk with Harley without a leash, without him seeing another dog or child and running over to them and mobbing them with playful love. I also wanted him to come when called and be able to control him in a crowd. Harley is such a sweet dog, but he is just as stubborn as a three year old child. He will bolt after a cat, or a child to play with, and we would not be able to get him back. He would just take off and play this game of “catch me if you can”. The front door could never be left open or he was gone. As we walked out the front door, you noticed Harley wearing a pinch collar or choker at the end of his leash. You told me that we would never use that again. I chuckled, because that was the only thing controlling him from dragging Cathy or me down the street. Kate, I am eating my words. From that day on, Harley has never worn that pinch collar again, for there was no longer a need for it. In just one day of training (30 minutes), we were also able to take Harley outside off leash, walk with us, and ignore other dogs and people. We have taken him on your off leash outdoor walks with a large group of dogs, and he just runs with them, and never runs off. When I call Harley to return to my side, he will literally push his way through the crowd of dogs and sit at my feet. In one week, about 30 minutes every other day, we accomplished all this. And in two weeks, Harley has gone from hating water, to eagerly wanting to swim with the others. We now have to drag him from the water to go home. We love Harley as if he was one of our children, but now we are enjoying him. Thank you for your expertise, your knowledge and your ability. Other training that we have done with Harley only left us disappointed. You have been a true blessing, and we can’t thank you enough. As a side note, Lucy is doing great. She and Harley have bonded well. Harley even lets her eat out of his bowl, before he is finished. What a gentleman. She is such a sweetheart. We are truly enjoying our adopted little girl.--Randy & Cathy Shute, Orting WA
