We're very happy with the introductory work we've done with Beth, and plan to work with her more in the future after practicing what she taught us with our pup. Beth was very quick to respond, showed up on time to appointments scheduled within less than a weeks' notice, and is very easy to talk to. She didn't make us feel silly for being inexperienced with dog training, and has been so helpful and patient-- qualities you want in a dog trainer! We highly recommend Beth especially for rescue dogs with fear issues. While our pup is going to take a while getting over larger (and louder) fears, Beth's guidance has already given our rescue loads of confidence that has translated to near-perfect leash obedience. The ocean is still a little scary, but the bus and trash truck and mail man no longer are!

Paula is an amazing dog trainer! She has provided me with so much new and relevant information that has been crucial in helping me with my foster dog. Thanks to her tips and her information on dog behavior, I have had great success with my dog's crate training and her behavior towards guests at the door. I highly recommend Paula to anyone who is in need to of help. She is more than a "teach them to sit" type of trainer -- she understands dog behavior and carefully explains how humans can work with dogs to give them skills to succeed.

In our house, we have 2 dogs, Shepherd mix and Mastiff/Pitbull and 3 people, parents and daughter. I knew it was imperative that we all get on the same page and that we address the issues at the place where they happen. Ben, from Devotion to Dogs, was terrific, from being flexible on the date, Memorial Day, to working with both dogs at the same time and the 3 people! He commands the attention of the dogs and the owners with a firm and calming hand. He is very knowledgable on pack behavior which helps him explain the dogs' perspective on the situation. Once we had that, the solutions made sense, even to our 13 year old daughter. Before Ben came, getting in and out of the house was a 3 ring circus. By the time Ben finished, we were all able to easily walk the dogs in and out of the house. We also needed help on leash walking, staying off the bed, going up and down the stairs politely and being able to open the front door without worrying what the dogs would do. Ben made sure that by the time he left we were capable in all those areas. He did not watch the clock to see how long he had been here. He worked with us until we felt the issues were addressed. I would readily recommend Devotion to Dogs for any dog training needs. Thanks Ben for helping bring calm back to our pack!

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!

I have an amazing Husky....But a Husky all the same... STUBBORN! We are training her to be a service dog for my son. We hired Kaelyn for help and OH MY GOODNESS we could not have asked for a better trainer. She is not only working with our Husky but my son. Kaelyn is so kind, positive and patient. She explains things in a straight forward way. We have only had about 4 lessons but holy moly what a difference she has made. If anyone comments on our dog I throw her name out. I can not say enough positive things about Kaelyn...all Things Pups

Mike worked with dog, Rocco, and I to prepare for the CGC test. He is not only an excellent trainer, who has perfected his skill set and demonstrates passion combined with eternal patience, he is very personable and caring. He was just as invested in Rocco's success as I was. I could not recommend him more highly. We hope to continue training with Mike and go on to take therapy dog and maybe service dog tests in the future.

She did a great job to train my dog. She is very patient. My puppy is very difficult to train. She used 2 hours to led her walk down my driveway without pulling. Made her understand "come" means come to me. Afterall, she only charge me one session which the original planned time is 1 hour while she actually spent 2 hours to do the job. I will recommend her to puppy owner particular those need special attentions.

We have used Greg/Force-Free Dog Services since getting our dog 2 years ago. He led puppy training classes for us with incredible results and we then started using him for dog walking and dog sitting services. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback loves spending time with Greg and his dogs and always come back completely exhausted. Greg also takes the time to reinforce training when he is with our dog, so he even comes back better behaved! Given Greg's background and education, he is very helpful in giving advice and answer questions about our dogs diet, nutrition, behavior and overall health. My husband and I travel often and it is very helpful that Greg is available and willing to come pick up/drop off our dog whenever needed. It is comforting to know that our dog is in a loving home being well looked after, when we are out of town.

I was very pleased with Brandon's service. My 14 year-old dog has had issues with being aggressive toward other dogs her whole life (since I rescued her at a year old). After a few sessions at my local dog park and at my condo complex, she has made a complete turnaround! Brandon showed me it's ever too late to correct a negative behavior. I wish I had known about him sooner! Now he is helping me with basic obedience for my 6 month- old puppy, and I couldn't be happier.

My puppy, clementine, loves spending the day with dog wild. Their professionalism and compassion for dogs shows in everything they do. I recommend asking about the off leash pack adventure if you need dog walking services. Your dog will come back tired, socialized, and happy. They even send awesome photo updates!!
