Training dogs for over ten years
Blake has been training dogs for over ten years, eight of which have been
with service dog training. Blake competes in various AKC sports with her
personal dogs including obedience, rally, agility, lure coursing, dock diving,
and therapy dog work.
As a service dog handler herself, she is able to relate to her clients on a
personal level when it comes to struggling with disabilities and wants to be
there for them to help aid in the journey of training their own service dog.
Meika’s Helping Paws
Your dog is pulling YOU down the street, pooping
in the house, barking at other dogs on walks
making YOU the embarrassment of the neigh-
borhood, blowing YOU off time and time again,
causing YOU to stress and regret getting the dog
in the first place.

After training, YOU can breathe a sigh of relief
as your walks become enjoyable and your dog
walks by your side, doesn’t bark at the other
dogs, stops chewing up the furniture, and
comes to YOU every time YOU ask.

I am so grateful to have
found Meika’s Helping Paws
Blake has been immensely helpful throughout the whole process of
training my service dog. She makes training sessions fun and is always
there to answer questions. I greatly respect her for continuing to learn
and invest in learning new training techniques/attend seminars and
bring that knowledge back home to share with her own clients.
I don’t think I could be doing this without her and it gives me peace of
mind knowing she is there in our corner supporting us in whatever we
may need knowing she is there in our corner supporting us in whatever
we may need. Her training programs are so reasonable! She works with
you and your schedule to ensure training is consistent.”
Now more than ever, fitness is important for both dogs and
people. The mc commonly recomme exercise to improve
fitness is walking.
A service dog as defined by the American’s with Disabilities Act
(ADA) is a dog that is individually
work or perform
tasks for people with disabilities.”
I reached out to Meika’s Helping Paws to help wrangle my 4 month old rescue beagle mix, Evie. She was a tiny terror with razor sharp teeth and I was at my wit’s end. Blake’s presence was very calming and Evie took to her immediately (and not just because she had treats). nom Over the next few weeks, I watched her transform into a puppy that ac-atually listened and become more of a pup that I’m comfortable taking with me wherever I go. What I like most about the way Blake works is that she trains for the type of dog that you have. It’s not all about just learning to sit and walk on the leash, it’s learning how to handle your dog’s personality and how to react to things. She spent time talking to me about the temperament of beagles and how there are just somethings she will continue to do because of her breed. She gave me alter-native exercise ideas such as scent training and was overall just a great source of information. I can’t tell you happy I am that I made the decision to use Meika’s Helping Paws because I feel like I actually bonded with Evie more because I was so proud of how she did in her training. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend Blake’s services again as a refresher course in the future.
