See what our clients have to say about our training results.

Building Bonds was recommended by a friend and we are grateful! Our pup came from an environment that had not afforded her opportunities to play and she had very limited leash skills. Kim has helped our very shy pup emerge into a confident walker and a playful pooch- eager to engage in games and learning. Kim has been responsive to all our questions and willing to work around the restrictions Covid 19 has imposed. The training is professional/ respectful, helpful and fun!

— Joyce S.

Building Bonds has an exemplary POSITIVE training program. My two young dogs (Wylie 20 months/Buzz 10 months) and I do multiple classes and have learned great skills while having fun! In addition to the lively classroom the instructors provide multi-media materials as reference. Try it with your furry friends-you’ll love it!

— Pam O.

I have worked with Kim and absolutely love her. I refer many people to her and send my clients to her for snake training. She is patient, kind, willing to approach issues from various directions in order to find the perfect solution. She is amazing and knows her stuff. I am a better trainer because of miss Kim

— Rainbow Service Dogs Inc.

I have been to many different trainers with my Australian Cattle Dogs. Building Bonds has been the best by far. Kim is extremely knowledgeable and very patient with my fearful dog. All training is positive and the building is spotless.

— Pam C.

Kim Silver gave us some amazing BAT sessions with our rescue who was quite fearful of everything but mostly men. I highly recommend her gentle approach and experience to training fearful dogs. We are very pleased and have many tools for continued use and training at home.
