Bruce was excellent to work with. He responded promptly when we inquired about training for our puppy. He was on time and helped us work through the the specific issue we were having with crate training. He gave us several possible ideas and helped us implement one that he thought would be a great way to start. We saw immediate results and his suggestions seem to be working. Thank you, Bruce!
I met Tom from K9katelynn through a friend that graduated from his training program with her two poodles. While I was a bit skeptical at first, as I had been down the private dog training route before, I was still a bit overwhelmed with my dogs lack of obedience and anxious behavior. Tom took the time to understand my goals as a dog owner of two minature poodles and my desire to have them fully and happily integrated into our family. His organized and methodical approach to step by step training made perfect sense to me. He helped me understand that with patience and loving praise, my dogs would very soon understand the newly placed boundaries that would nurture them physically, emotionally and mentally. I quickly put into action training techniques that he taught me to eliminate jumping and we experienced, immediate positive results. Later today we did our first "walk" in the pool, also marked with great success. Each dog swam on a lead for approximately 15 minutes with short rest breaks. As I sit here now, writing this review, they are both sleeping quietly in their own space rather than anxiously demanding my attention. I realize the success of a perfectly trained dog lies with my willingness to be prepared and consistent. I am willing to put in the hard work now for the long term gain of being a pet parent to two stunning, happy and well behaved mini poodles. Thank you Tom for your honesty and courage in showing me my well intentioned tough love and rigidity in raising these dogs wasn't aigned with my desire for them to exist harmoniously with our family. If you're considering dog training for your puppy or dog, please give K9Katelynn an opportunity to get to know you and your dog. I'm hard pressed to believe you'll find a more loving and patient trainer.
She was very helpful and informative about my puppy's training. She also didn't make me feel inadequate with the training.
Kim came to the house for puppy training. Very pleased. We learned a lot about our sheltie and how to best care and start to train her
Anita is looking after our two dogs, walking them and doing training with our puppy. She is excellent! She gets on very well with the dogs (and our cats), goes above and beyond expectations and does extra little jobs we haven't even asked for! The animals love her and I don't know what we would do without her!
Beth does go above and beyond. She is caring and gives helpful tips on training my dog. When I leave I feel confident that my dog will be well taken care of.
Cat was amazing! She did a great job training my puppy and has been available by phone whenever I have called to ask a question since she came home. She is an excellent trainer. She sent me daily emails with pictures. I very highly recommend her!!
Wonderful experience - did an amazing job with our 2 puppies (basic puppy training)
I hired Renee to come to my home & help with basic puppy training when my crazy Great Pyr/Lab puppy was 3.5mos old. She basically trained me how to train my dog. One session we even went for a walk & she showed me how to start training Remi at 4mos to walk well on a leash! I also took Renee’s 6 week outdoor basic obedience class & I highly recommend! I had her come to my house again for a private session this week because I needed some help getting my now huge 6mos old puppy under control in my home. She gave me some great tips & within 24hrs I have seen results! I’m so thankful I found Spot On Obedience Training! Great prices & I’m a huge fan of the positive reinforcement training. My sweet pup is responding well & still knows I am in charge. Renee is always available to answer questions via text, call or email & she really loves my crazy dog!
I love Brandy and Steve. They have paid very close attention to my two dogs, Charlie and Frankie. We came in with two hyper active working dogs that had little training but have picked up so much information in training class. I am trying to beg them to do a level 2 training class for my dogs to be in. I love how attentive they were before and after class with Frankie and Charlie. I also realized a lot of the work was to train me. They have trained me well. I spend 30 min a day with both of my dogs training them separately with all the tricks they taught me in there class. I would highly recommended this obedience class with Brandy and Steve. They are very reasonably priced as well as they answered my response to their services within minutes. They treat my dogs as there own and send out weekly emails regarding all the dogs in the class and what we need to work on. On the off hours of training Brandy answers my texts and sends me additional info regarding activities for working dogs that she thinks would be good for my babes. One week I didn’t have a second handler and she had her husband help me out. She’s a serious gem and moving forward I will only work with her. She’s passionate about what she does and understands dogs so well! Thanks Brandy!
I just love how she help me to get my dog to stay off of my little siblings and the other dogs too. I love how she has my little brothers be involved with the training. She is so good with dogs and I recommend her she will give you good tips
My walker, Louis, is so sweet, patient, and caring. I feel confident in her ability to handle my little monsters. (5 month old puppy and 45lb lab) Setting up was professional, easy and I feel like my dogs are in good hands. I work 45 minutes from home so this service was a must have when my fiancé couldn't take them out at lunch. Definitely worth the peace of mind.
Rebecca is so nice and so kind. She is exactly what I was looking for when training my Yorkie. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a good trainer. She was on time and very professional.
People comment on my well behaved and obedient dogs - it is because of training from Waggin' Train. Waggin Train helped me train my dogs based on my lifestyle and needs and my dogs' personality. Waggin' Train also helped me introduce an adopted dog into my home. Amazing results - the new dog is quickly learning and my other dog is loving her new sister quicker than I expected. Thanks Waggin' Train!
Madison is awesome she is a real professional she is polite good with dogs and there human counter parts I would recommend her to anyone that has puppy issues in a heartbeat.
Eileen and Ben were fabulous! They worked with us on vocal commands and how to respond to our dogs when other dogs approach. They brought their 2 pits within them to help with the training. Plus our neighbors pup (in training) was also there. We thank them and will be calling them again for more help.

I have the experience of training many different species of animals. I believe there are many different ways to train one thing, you just have to figure out what works best for the animal and the trainer.
