"I joined OR this year and have faithfully watched the videos since I don’t have money for a private trainer. I appreciate Connie Cleveland-Nolan so much! We entered our first Novice A trial today and won first with a 194.5!"
~ Lisa & Brix
"Shameless brag on my girl. Rain earned her UDX yesterday and then followed that up with another UDX leg today with placements in both Utility & Open. She has 31 OTCH points and her Open B win! Thank you Connie and all the Obedience Road community for the support, advice & encouragement."
~ Colleen & Rain
"Iris finished her CDX today - 3 shows, 3 first places, 197, 196, 197. Back tomorrow for a backup leg. We had some training issues with the drop on recall but the Obedience Road videos gave me great ideas for solving our problem. Iris is truly a silly Cocker but she takes her obedience seriously."

"We had an amazing time this last weekend. Going into the trial we had one Q for his CDX Title. Saturday he got his second Q and placed 1st. Sunday he gave me a Father's Day present by placing 2nd and getting his CDX Title.
What a wonderful way to celebrate. I am so proud of him and now we can move on to Utility. He is amazing."
~ Larry & Luke
"I train by myself. You helped me with my "Snatch and Grab" article situation and my "Loopy Go Out". I wanted to THANK YOU for your help and also for all of the information you provide us on Obedience Road. My dog - COMET - earned his UD this weekend in two shows with scores in the 190s. He also got a extra Q for good measure. Both his articles and go outs have improved 100%.
~ Sue & Comet
"What a kind soul you are! And a kind soul such as you is a person having no clue what they do to help and inspire others. . .
And that is just ME. With hundreds of others on Obedience Road, I cannot even fathom who else your kindness AND PATIENCE have helped. You are an amazing trainer and an amazing teacher which is even more rare.
~Annette & Bly
"Gotta brag on my girl. She earned her UD today and did so in three trials with scores in the 190s. She was able to work through distractions and a handler who was flashing signals too quickly. While we’re new to the Obedience Road there are so many things we’ve incorporated in our training and trialing that helped us reach this goal."
"We finished our CDX today, with a score of 195. I want to thank Connie for teaching us that we can often fix a problem overnight! Yesterday, I was struggling with the change of position exercise. My dog did not focus when I left him and walked away so he missed the first signal. I went home and practiced the attention, and it paid off!"
"I’ve been a lurker within the group but recently attended Connie’s incredible seminar. We upped our game on proofing! So happy to report . . . a clean sweep at our specialty! My goal was to get High Scoring Dog in Regular Classes and he did it! . . . Overall, 8 classes that weekend, 8 First Placements and both days HIT in Obedience and High Combined and High Combined Triple (Rally). I am over the moon!"
