My dog had been acting out and I needed to find an expert on Queensland heeler behavior. Beth Jeffery of Top Dog Trainer has an outstanding knowledge of cattle dog behavior. She quickly establishes trust w/ both the owner and dog. Beth taught me in the first session approaches which were highly effective for managing my cattle dog with fear-aggression. I have had excellent experiences over the past several months w/ Beth; I highly recommend Beth for any level of dog training. I would give 10 stars were it an option.

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.

Mel has given us an enormous amount of confidence in our daily training. Our dog is from a shelter, and he came with leash reactivity. He quickly feels overwhelmed and anxious on a leash, and his deep bark and 40 pounds have caused a lot of people to either get upset with us for having him or offer tons of advice about "prong collars" and "teaching him who's dominant". We were starting to feel like we were terrible parents! Mel reassured us that our dog is well-adjusted and capable of conquering his fears. We've been using the positive reinforcement training these past 3 weeks and are happy to say that we have seen a positive change! We are better able to recognize his needs and respond appropriately thanks to the patient training by Mel. We will have work to do for a few more months yet, but we feel much more confident about taking it on!

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.

Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.

Heather was very accommodating and understanding. She joined with us when expressing our frustrations with our dogs' behavior issues and was patient but firm when showing us how to correct some of the issues. Heather reassured us that progress will happen if we are consistent and provided easy to do exercises with our dogs. We look forward to working with her next weekend!

We had a 17 month puppy that was out of control. Well in fact he was in control of our family. The last straw was me tackling him in the front yard to keep him from running out of the house again. We hired Peter Levy to help us with this adorable wonderful stubborn puppy. Within minutes of Peter walking into the house, he looked at our puppy and gave him some type of signal or vibe that he was alpha. From that point on, our puppy changed. He became calmer and more attentive. Peter taught us how to gain control over our puppy and get him to behave better. We learned from him how to be above the puppy in the pecking order. His instructions were very insightful and made so much sense when you realize how pack animals work. He has an instant connection with a dog, and is able to help us get the good behaviors that we need from our dog. We highly recommend Peter as a dog trainer. He is amazing!!!
