We are an older couple who have never owned a dog before so the training process seemed overwhelming before our session with Beth Jeffery. Beth is a warm, immediately likeable person who has a very practical method that she communicates in a motivating way. Since she's written a book on the subject of training puppies, she knows how to share her information in a way you can remember and put into practice after she's gone. It's made a big difference to to us because she is able to let us understand how what we do and say is interpreted by our dog. We now appreciate our dog in a new way because we relate with our dog differently. Our dog is better behaved and more confident too. It's been rewarding and fun too!

I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.

Above and beyond all expectations I had. I had a 1.5 year dog was an aggressor, and would start fights with dogs constantly. She was able to socialize my dog with other dogs and stopped all the aggression. Not only did the training work, but she would pick up and drop off my dog while I was at work. She has a through training program and was able to teach obedience and patients to my dog. I would recommend to anyone who needs helps. This is a trainer that cares and loves dogs!

Working with Mel has been fantastic. She is a terrific trainer. She's patient and teaches training techniques in an accessible way that's easy for an inexperienced dog owner to understand and implement. Working with her has given me a lot of confidence with my dog. I would recommend her to anyone who's looking for one on one positive dog training.

I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.

Allison was very patient with our dog and made sure he improved his fear and anxiety so he could train with the other dogs. Great dog home away from home.

Maya is one of the most caring, gentle, patient groomers around. I have seen her take a dog that was clearly fearful upon arrival and have them leave clean, clipped and happy. Anyone who has a dog that does not like going to the groomer should try Maya. In addition to her way with dogs, she is also a very talented groomer so when you leave your dog will also look amazing.

Tracy is wonderful and listens to our needs. She was able to answer all of my concerns being a new puppy owner which decreased the anxiety that comes with having no puppy experience. She uses positive reinforcement with her training.
