ATF Canines

Throughout the past 2.5 years, Carrie Silva has assisted the federal government in the selection and training of their Special Response Team (SRT) canines. Ms. Silva has conducted foundation obedience and aggression training with six (6) SRT canines, to include the latest canine in August, 2010. The outstanding foundation training of these dogs by Ms. Silva has allowed the handler and canine to move more rapidly into tactical canine training, and thus increasing their potential for success during high-risk operations.

The Doghouse LLC has been the most wonderful investment in my German Shepherd puppy Barron for obedience training and protection training. Prior to Carrie and Ivan working with my 1 year old GSD, he was nearly impossible to take on walks without him pulling where he wanted to go and he had a mind all his own without interest in my commands to sit, heal, stay. I took him to the local pet store with in-house training using the "clicker" and it had limited success. Carrie had Baron following all commands perfectly and walking with me instead of dragging me where he wanted. He is perfect with other dogs and especially children and I can actually walk him off leash with the best obedience to my commands. People always ask me where he was trained and they love his happiness and responsiveness. He is PERFECT for me and our neighborhood! Thanks to Carrie and Ivan, I have a strong and beautiful German Shepherd dog which is now great to walk in public and he behaves at home equally well! Thank you both!!!

Our household is much more relaxed as Nola's out of control behavior had an adverse effect on our other dog. Now, both are much calmer. Carrie and Maureen also taught us other nifty tricks, like how to make our dogs "place" so they are not jumping all over guests. Now, they wait to be greeted. The Dog House training we all received has had a positive impact on our lives. Most notably is how much more relaxed our lives have become. We do not have the aggressive barking every time a dog walks by, and there is no agonizing over when and where to walk the dogs in order to avoid a fight while still making sure they are exercised. I can even talk to my neighbors as they are no longer in fear for their dogs lives! The best part is that Nola is a much happier, calmer dog. We still practice with Nola daily . The words "Carrie said..." have become part of our regular conversations as Nola is a bit stubborn and pushes the envelope when she can-after all, Carrie changed her behavior and not her personality. But, now we know how to deal with it, and that has made all the difference.

I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are to have met you. We believe you are a God sent and you are going to change all three of our lives. I also wanted to say that what you do for people and their animals is a gift beyond words and I think the world (or at least Florida) needs to know about you. You are so smart and so good at what you do and there are too many dog parents giving up their pets because they don't know where to turn. You really should start video taping your meetings and your training. What you did for Roxy in just 20 minutes yesterday made a difference and your techniques need to be out there for people to see and learn from. Fond Regards,
Jennifer, Sid, and Roxy
