Dog Training

Holly and her team have literally saved our dog, Wilbur. We couldn't take him anywhere without him having a meltdown if he saw another dog, cat, jogger, bicycle, whatever. He'd bark/howl and lunge until we were well away from whatever set him off. We actually considered surrendering him but decided to see if Holly could help. After 4 weeks with Holly, Wilbur is a totally different dog--we can walk/drive him anywhere now with confidence that we can keep him calm! Holly regularly kept us informed of Wilbur's progress and scheduled weekly meetings where we could observe her training methods and practice them ourselves. Thank you Holly, and your team, for your professionalism, your dedication, and your guidance. I would highly recommend Holly to anyone looking for a professional to help train their dog. She and her team are amazing!

I can't say enough about Holly. If you need help in training your fur baby look no further. Holly trains with love,no harsh training. After working with your pooch,she teaches you as well. With her assistance she truly makes dog ownership less stressful so you enjoy your pup. And your pup enjoys you more. I tell her she is my miracle worker. My German shepherd was a pain to walk. Now he is amazing.As I said she shows you how to continue there lessons, she shows you proper equipment and how to use it. My dogs love her, they see her coming and get excited. Please for your fur babies if you need training message Holly, it was the best message I ever sent. She had my male shepherd in May, in December she will have our female, and then any future dogs we may own.

To put it simply, I'm convinced Holly is a dog whisperer. Our puppy Mosa went to a board and train with Holly for over a month for basic obedience issues and impulse control. Mosa came back a NEW dog. She's still a fun-loving goofball, but she's in an entirely different mindset, always eager to listen and work. Our continued work with her at home has been extremely successful thanks to her time there. We were also able to visit Mosa at one of the Heel k9 locations, and I couldn't have been more pleased! The dogs have tons of room, yet the setup is very intentional to keep all dogs of varying sizes/etc. apart. In regards to Holly and Heel K9, there is no one I would feel more confident in training and caring for my dog. It is clear that Holly has as much knowledge as she does care and respect for animals. She has also been extremely kind and helpful to us during the entire process, always encouraging us to come to her with questions and for help. We will absolutely be boarding with Holly in the future. I would give her 10 stars if I could!

Holly is an incredible and gifted trainer. We had been shopping around for a trainer for our new puppy for weeks to help with house training and manners as her biting was getting out of hand and we were losing patience fast. That being said, we couldn’t find a board and train that would commit to using positive training techniques even though our puppy was only 3 months old! From our first phone call with Holly, we knew we were in the right hands because she was so straightforward and knowledgeable and genuinely wanted to help our Bowie be happy and well-behaved. She even suggested looking into other home training if we had more time - anyone who isn’t just trying to upsell and draw in business instantly had our trust. There are so many perks included in the training package and Bowie had a blast being socialized and learning new skills alongside the other dogs. Holly is always a phone call away if we need her, and her and Bowie will definitely be lifelong friends :)

Holly did such an amazing job training and caring for our German Shepard husky mix named Zemo, he was 11 weeks at the time. during the 5 weeks he was boarded she kept us updated twice a week with pictures videos on how well he was doing. Before he left he was puppy biting, leash pulling, eating everything off of the ground, and half potty trained. Now that we’ve gotten him back he walks fine, he doesn’t lunge or leash pull, no biting, rings the bell when he has to it ty and he’s perfectly crate trained. He listens and obeys his commands, he also doesn’t eat off the counter or table in the house. She worked a miracle on Zemo. Thank you Holly!
