BONNIE GOTTLIEB & SHAYNE
“I joined Thank Dog Boot Camp when it started. It has been the best decision I have made in a long time. I have owned many dogs in the past but everyone tells me that my present dog Shayne is the best behaved dog ever. I have Thank Dog Boot Camp to excuse the expression “Thank” for that. The workouts are great for me as well. I have lost inches and gained strength and better condition. It’s so nice to be able to work out outdoors with people who are so great to be around. Jamie and Jill make the sessions enjoyable, as much as work outs can be. Thank you all for starting this, Shayne and I look forward to working with you for a long time.”
KIM GRANT & ROSIE
“Thanks so much for kick-starting our work-out regime! Prior to finding Thank Dog Boot Camp, I was recovering from injuries sustained from another renowned Boot Camp in LA, my husband was a couch potato and our 5 month old puppy was driving us nuts! When my husband and I came aboard, we were both a little nervous – as he hadn’t worked out in a long time and I was coming off a bad experience, but after 5 minutes, we knew we were in great hands and so was Francesca! Jill is amazing at being able to modify the exercises to fit my abilities without sacrificing the work-out and she pushes my husband just to the point which his body could handle. And Francesca has taken to Jamie’s training like a fish to water! No more chasing her around the house! “Down and stay” have never made us happier! Not only have they made us more active and fit, but we have definitely seen a difference in the way our clothes fit…so I know we’re on the right path with the right team!
We also participate in the “Borrrow a Dog Program” because we only have one dog and you need a dog to do the Boot Camp. I have had the pleasure of working out with another dog, Rosie, which is fun for me because I get to experience the pleasure of another dog and still learn the commands for when I am home with Francesca.”
LAURA ALLEN & LOGAN
“I've been attending Thank Dog Bootcamp with my dog Logan (a 5-year-old, 3-legged chihuahua/terrier mix) for several years and it has been great! Logan is a rescue dog and he came from a puppy mill, so he had absolutely no training when we started. Thank Dog has been a lifesaver! He initially had problems with some leash aggression and dominant behavior, but the obedience training has completely turned that around both during bootcamp and when we're just at home or on a walk. I don't know what I would have done without Jamie! She is able to maintain a delicate balance between structure and discipline with the dogs while still expressing a loving, caring attitude. Plus, I get a great workout and some real bonding time with Logan before I go to work. He loves having our time together in the morning and is so exhausted he just sleeps all day! The flexibility of the program, with the equal emphasis on the workout and dog training during the sessions is perfect for us! We love Thank Dog!”
“This personal fitness and dog training program is honestly the best gift I've ever gotten. It's a great start to my day and my dog has learned invaluable obedience skills. It is everything I wasn't getting from my old routine...this is motivating, stimulating, challenging, but also fun! You MUST do this for yourself!!”
LAUREN WILSON & MISCHA
I am a definite fan of Thank Dog Boot Camp and its founders, Jamie and Jill. Why else would I be able to get up at 5:15 in the morning and drive 20 minutes to Burbank four days a week for the last year and a half? The classes are always new and challenging and fun. Jamie and Jill are true experts in both dog training and human fitness and if you make the commitment to come to class regularly, the results for your body, your health, your happiness and your relationship with your dog are amazing.
DENISE FLECK & HAIKU
Thank Dog! Bootcamp is the best!
Puts me and my dog to the test.
We work and play but both are fun
Getting up early we're on the run!
Not only do I get a great workout, but I spend time with my dog who comes home tired allowing me to get my work done. We have a great time with the morning bunch -- two-legged and four-legged, and I feel like I've done something good for both of us.
Jill and Jamie push us to do our best, but in a fun and caring way. Their number one concern is that the dogs are safe, but we're all delighted when we see our dogs improve at their training and the muscles show on our bods.
Thank Dog! Bootcamp really is doggone great!
