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!

Paula has been such a wonderful trainer for our puppy who was full of anxiety and too much for us to handle. We needed professional help! Just a few weeks ago we started training and Izzy (puppy) was jumping, counter surfing, biting, and destroying property. She still has some of these behaviors but they are lessening and improving A LOT! Paula is incredibly knowledgeable, caring, and inspiring – as her business name implies. She always spends extra time with us and is happy to explain over and over again so we can understand what our dogs behavior. She truly speaks the dog language. Give her a try – you will be very happy with the results – we are!

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.

I’ve got a bully who was pushing around the other members in my household. We are a multi generation house and he didn’t want anyone else near me , or the couch, or the bed.... Breanna was excellent! Aight all the members in the house to be active , train, walk and not let him push them around. She turned an uncomfortable situation into a happy household. Strongly recommended.

We have a high spirited English Cream Retriever that had been neglected because of busy schedules and such. Emily was our trainer. She worked miracles with our pup. It was important to me for my children to be part of the training. Emily was so good with them, explained why things were done a certain way and very patient with us all. You can tell that this work is a true passion for her and it shows in her dedication.

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.

About

Hot Dog On A Leash offers full-service care and training for your precious pets. Who better to watch your pets while on vacation than your dog trainer or doggie daycare provider? We even offer behavior modification. If your pet has issues, Hot Dog On A Leash will correct it while you are away, and then show you how we did it. See Reviews below 11/14/2013 I have a Jack Russell and he was very hyper and was hard to control. Had to have him on a leash and he always wanted to fight big dogs. After using Hot Dog on a Leash, my dog no longer uses a leash. He comes back to me when called. No longer is he aggressive towards big dogs. I was Wowed by the change and would recommend this company anytime. They are very nice and experienced more than any other trainer I have ever seen. 11/14/2013 We have to recommend Hot Dog On A Leash for dog owners who are looking for training. We have found both Randy and Heather to be dog lovers who are excellent trainers, reliable, professional and genuinely interested in helping their clients. Their rates are very reasonable and we really like that the training takes place one on one in real life places where there are lots of other dogs and people. Our rescue dog, Suri, has completed the basic obedience course and is now beginning the intermediate course.
