We have 2 livestock guardian dogs. They are supposed to be "independent thinkers" and should be given the minimal obedience training. Unfortunately, we followed this advice to the "T" with our Kuvasz (now 3) but were convinced with our Caucasian Ovcharka Shepard (just turning 1) that we should be more engaged and connected to them. We hired Dana after reviewing his credentials and reviews and referrals. After only 4 training sessions, we now have 2 dogs that will pay attention to us, come when called - every time, sit and stay. Dana doesn't use special equipment or tricks, he uses common sense and has trained US to communicate with our dogs. We are very pleased with Dana, our training experience, and our dogs' behavior. We have recommended and will continue to recommend Dana's training services to our friends and any one else who wants to learn how to communicate with their dog so the can co-exist happily. Thank you very much, Dana, for helping all of us.

I have a dog named max. He was 4 months old when I contacted Kim Brown. He was a puppy he had some bad habits. He was a chewer wasn't potty trained and wouldn't walk on a leash. He had a great personality but I had not ideal were to start. So Kim told me to start class and she would help me with these issues. At first I struggled a bit Kim explained each situation and helped me thru everyone. There were other dogs in class that were doing well so I keep faith and continued class therw were many challenges but over come them all. Some of the other dogs had other issues such as dog aggression cowardice and bitters. I watch these dogs go from coming in with these issues to becoming a well behaved and great companion. Max is completely potty trained now he can walk set half way down and come. U will learn so much more Kim will answer any questions you have. It will be the best investment you ever make for you and your pet. I now have a great bond with max and I feel I have Kim Brown to thank for all this. I hope you all Kim to assist you in ur dog training needs. I give her a double thumbs up.

I’ve sent several dogs to Nick for Board and Trains- puppies, competition dogs and a special needs dog. He has done a fabulous job- the dogs are returned so much farther along in their training and are correct and happy. They receive excellent care at Bite Ranch w a balance between work, environmental exposure and an opportunity to just be a dog and play. Trust him implicitly w my dogs and their care. I train w Nick on a regular basis and have learned so much. He is truly a student of dogs and dog behavior and an excellent problem solver as well as motivator.

    Kimberly was my 3rd trainer for our dog and her ways were very helpful. We've had 4 other dogs and we were able to train them, but this dog is a bit problematic. He has many issues and Kimberly helped to make him a loved part of our family. He would not do well at a kennel and we have also used Kimberly's boarding services. Anyone hiring a dog trainer should talk with that trainer at length and make sure that you understand their style. Kimberly will not train your dog, but train you to train your dog- which is a much better way. She did bring her infant son to some of our lessons, but he was not a distraction and I really didn't care.

    Trained my dog to be a medical assistance dog within 1 year and still works with her on occasion. Melinda cares about animals and seems to have a gift in animal/human communication/interaction. Her prices are fair and often below most other professionals within the industry.
