When I contacted Beth, I had dog who was anxious and nervous. He was constantly pulling during our walks, and he wasn't always friendly with other people. Beth gave me the skills, knowledge, and confidence, I needed to be successful in training my dog. I am happy to say, my dog is now a pleasure to walk, and he has become much more friendly to the people he encounters. I highly reccommend Beth!

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!

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!

We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.

I absolutely love them! They made me feel like I was their only client even though I know that I wasn't. Mr. Philip connected with Karter, my dog, and did all he could to determine what would and wouldn't work for him as far as training. Karter would have his days when he didn't want to work but they never gave up on him and to this day Karter listens a lot better. They make sure to show you exactly what you need to do when you are practicing at home and you can just sense his love for dogs at every session. I would definitely recommend KO Dog Training to anyone looking for help with their dog(s).

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.

Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!

Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.

Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.

Amazing! David was amazing with my dog. I had a dog who had several issues on top of not having any obedience. We tried other trainers before him and they couldn't help him. We finally found David and he did a wonderful job. He got our dog to stop lunging, barking, tearing up our things, helped us build a bond, and taught him obedience commands. I am very grateful for everything he's done.

After doing hours of research and training on my own with my young dog, I was at my wits end with everything from potty training, to walking nicely. After speaking with Holly from Furry Tail Dog Training, we identified all of my concerns, and she gave me a clear and easy plan to help me guide my wild puppy to becoming a lovable, and manageable dog! We are so grateful for her help, because I am now taking my dog on walks with a lose lead when once I didn't think it was possible! And potty training woes are a thing of the distant past!
