If you are looking for a good dog trainer, I would highly recommend Tom from K9Katelynn! We have tried in the past to have our dogs both swim and run on a treadmill. We never accomplished either until we hired Tom. Also, we were having some issues with behavior which Tom aslo helped! He had us write notes as he trained all of us and these proved to be very helpful!
Amy is an awesome trainer. She has over 20 yrs experience with all types of dogs, knows what she is doing and charges a fair price. She's available for follow ups and treats you and your dog like a trainer should. None of the condescending bs that some in the industry lead with.
A lot of dog trainers want to board your dog for months and return it to you fully trained. Then they transfer the training to you. All this for thousands of dollars. No thank you. Nate came to my house and worked with Charlie and me in the environment where we live and walk. He said 4 lessons would be enough and it was. Thanks Nate.
I have tried obedience classes with my exuberant, hyper maltese previously with limited success. Cat trained my eccentric little pup to sit, wait, leave it, touch and come, as well as worked on her barking with one week of daily one-on-one training. It is obvious that she is very experienced and talented. I felt safe knowing how happy my puppy would be there with her big beautiful yard and friendly demeanour. I highly recommend Cat for dog training!!
As a first time dog parent, I wanted to get my lab puppy into training as soon as possible. Roxann answered my numerous questions about training and even met with me to answer more questions before we agreed to work together. Roxann worked with my pup and me for five weeks. She also gave tutorials to my parents who were in town so all were communicating the same way to the dog. Roxann was patient and reviewed the lessons as needed. Now my dog is in puppy kindergarten. I am so very glad for the private lessons with Roxann before going to this group class. My dog is much more successful because of the private lessons.
I've used Two Dogs Dancing for overnight stays at my home with my pack of very boisterous corgis, Pom and rat terrier and one horse. We have an older corgi with a brain tumor and are not comfortable leaving him unattended for extended periods of time. This summer we scheduled a 10 day over seas vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that all our pets would be well care for. We received daily updates and pictures. All our pets were properly pampered while we were gone including our horse, who doesn't understand why I don't provide the yummy carrots like Mary does. Our dogs are over joyed when they see Mary and Brandy outside of pet sitting. Our home was clean and in great condition when we returned and we were pleasantly surprised by a plate of freshly baked cookies.
Scott is an amazing dog trainer! I didn't think my dog could be trained but after only one session she started to calm down and obey commands. He worked with her on her aggression towards guests coming into our home as well as obeying simple commands. Maddie, my dog, is still doing good even after the training! I'm so grateful for Scott helping us!
I am a fellow force free trainer & I'm telling you, if you want to develop an outstanding relationship with your dog, Kathrine is the trainer for you.

What ever your training needs are, Kathrine is the trainer for you.
I used Lisa for some help with my new 10 mo Australian Shepard. He was very excitable and didn't pay attention to my attempts to train him and chased the cats all the time. I have a dog trainer I am working with but was still frustrated I contacted Lisa for a phone intervention even though I live in Pa and she is in Az. (I had met her Az last winter and she .helped me with my horse there) We scheduled a session and she connected with Finn for an hour, and then called me to discuss what she had done. A few things were that she had reassured him that this would be his forever home. He thought the horses were his job and had spent a lot of time with our horses out in the field for about a month trying to get them to play or to round them up and then abruptly just stopped and changed to chasing the cats instead. He told Lisa that the horses were boring so he chases the cats instead. She told him he was not to chase them and told him what his new job would be. (Learning 100 new things). She gave him a command that I use when he chase the cats. (taking a while, but making progress). She detected a hip issue, which he has, and did some energy work to help him be calmer. She detected kind of a stubborn streak in him, which he has. He said that there was a lot of green around. (We have about and acre of grass and a horse pasture near the house) I noticed a calmer more compliant demeanor immediately with him and in the next lesson with the trainer, the trainer remarked 3 or 4 times that she was really surprised at the difference in him since the last lesson. He was calmer and more tuned in to what she was teaching him. She didn't know about the session with Lisa. Im really grateful for Lisa's help.
I highly, highly recommend Brenda at Awesome Mannered Canines! She is an outstanding trainer, and it is clear that she loves what she does! I have worked with a couple of other trainers over the years, and no one has wowed me until I started working with Brenda! I have taken three dogs through her group classes, and every time has been a fantastic experience. Not only do the dogs learn their commands, but they also learn how to behave around other dogs, and in public places! Brenda goes above and beyond just basic puppy training. By the end of the six week class, it is clear that each and every dog enrolled has made tremendous progress! I have also seen remarkable successes in dogs that Brenda has worked with to correct problem behaviors. Two of the dogs in Brenda's Canine Good Citizen class (which dog and I attended as well) had previously worked with her due to leash-reaction issues, and are now on their way to earning their CGC - that's amazing progress!! She helped my pit bull, Arya and I earn her Canine Good Citizen certification last year, and it's been an amazing experience. I honestly couldn't recommend her more highly!
testimonials We called Joe and told him that we were needing to have our female Rottweiler (Roxie) taught obedience commands. We have three small children and we wanted to make sure that our dog was well behaved and obedient. Joe recommended that we also refine Roxie’s security instincts as an assurance of protection for the family. Within three weeks, Roxie was more obedient than any dog we’d ever laid eyes on. We decided to try out all of the commands that Joe had taught Roxie for guarding our home and family; She performed perfectly day after day. Dawn and Tim
THE KNOWLEGE THAT the pet trainer had. Taught us quite a bit. HELPED TREMENDOUSLY! Joseph Atmur was amazing!....
Myra is an amazing human being and a GREAT trainer of dogs & humans. She has changed my life with helping me train my AWESOME Service Dog.
Searching for a dog trainer is not easy, let alone if you have specific demands. This was my situation. Joyce was not quite capable of accommodating what I was requesting, but she has continued to reach out to me to try to source a solution for my specific situation. That alone, someone who didn't get my business, by no fault of her own, has repeatedly checked in seeing if she could still help some how some way speaks VOLUMES on her character. If my situation was a typical one, I can assure you I would have hired her.
Scott is an outstanding trainer. He definitely has exceeded my expectations and really breaks everything down for you. Whether it be the training, the health, proper nourishment, you name it. Very supportive and patient overall which is key!
I want to thank you and your staff for the excellent service you orovided to my family and I. I would definately recommend your services to others. I look forward to working with you in the future.

After many requests by frustrated dog owners, the mobile canine unit was put on the road. I call it my dog house on wheels. My four canine traveling companions (Zambia, Tanzi, Pemba and Kwele) enjoy smelling new places and meeting new friends. We are one of the few dog trainers/behaviorists that travel accross the country offering services to anyone who may need help. My success rate is almost 100 percent. Why, because I love training dogs and love teaching people. Learning how to communicate with your dog is not only gratifying but will enhance the relationship with your pet and create a life long bond.
