We love the calm and loving way Don works with our dog. Our dog loves learning from Don and is very receptive to his way of teaching. Don does not use treats which was also important to us. Don is also very patient in teaching me how to work with our little Maltese.

We are so happy our friend referred us to Kevin. We are working with him as our dog grows from a puppy to hopefully a well behaved adult. So far, so good! We expect to work with him somewhat long term as we would like our dog to be a therapy dog. Kevin is great with both our dog and us. He is clear with his advice, and doesn't mind going over things repeatedly. Our puppy, Lexi adores him. Kevin is very conscientious, and goes above and beyond in the way he works with us. I believe we are all learning a lot by working with Kevin.

I was very nervous about signing up for dog training, especially the board and training program because I was worried that Ford would forget me and return even worst than before. I talked to four different trainers and ultimately, my choice came down to what kind of results I wanted - Tierney guaranteed that Ford would obtain a certain level of standardized obedience and this made me feel secure in my choice to train with her. Tierney was quick to console my fears and she spent a lot of time going over all the different options of her program, it didn't take me long to feel at peace with the choice to give Ford the best possible training I could. She will be working on his off leash obedience and house manners, plus she is addressing all of his aggression issues. I feel comforted knowing that she is a national-level competitor and continues to further her education in the field, I am also very excited to hear that all of her training is documented so that I can stay up to date on the progress daily! I strongly recommend Tierney and her services. I cannot wait to unleash my beast!

We have been working with Shauna since our Doberman was 10 weeks old. We started off with her beginner class and went all the way though to get our dog AKC CGC certified. Shauna is a great trainer who taught us a lot of great techniques. She is very patient and our doberman loves her.

I've been working with Faith since getting my puppy this year and it has been excellent! Training is always a work in progress of course but my dog has benefited so much from training with her! We've been able to work on basic obedience, move onto advanced skills and work on issues specific to my dog. I frequently get compliments about how well behaved my dog is. I would highly recommend Faith to anyonewho is in need of a dog trainer. She is wonderful and a wealth of knowledge & expertise!

Before our train and board session with the Off the Leash trainer, Ashley Bukins, our 8 month old German Shepard, Molly, was a good dog. After her session, she is an amazing dog! Her obedience and overall demeanor has improved greatly. Ashley has turned our Molly into the dog that we know Molly had the potential to be. Since we brought Molly into our lives we wanted to give her the best in everything that we could. Training her proved to be a little challenge since my husband and I both work and we have two small boys to take care of. We came across the Off Leash K9 training videos on YouTube and we know it would be an amazing opportunity to have Molly go that type of trianing. Since her 2 week session with Ashley we can now enjoy family trips to the park without having to worry about how our Molly will react to other dogs. We can give commands and have that assurance that molly will listen, and also the training has also given us a chance to be better owners for our Molly. We also appreciate how available and how helpful Ashley is with any questions and or concerns that we have. We can literally text or call her at anytime and she is there to help us. We highly recommended our amazing trainer to our friends and will continue to preach about Off Leash K9 training to anyone that asks how we got our Molly to become a trained and well behaved dog.

I have had nothing but positive and informative contact with both Terra and Suzy. They are professional, compassionate, and follow through with promises made. They respond to questions and issues in a timely manner, explain things in a clear and consistent manner, and continue to help address issues as they arise. My 10 month old lab likes to do the typical 5 steps forward 10 steps backwards in both behavior and obedience-they have been spectacular in helping me through my frustrations and to continue working with him so he can be what I want and need.

We were very pleased with Jenni. She was very informative and gave us plenty of effective advise. She took our unruly puppy for training and 5 weeks later returned to us a very pleasant obedient and enjoyable dog. It is obvious that her main concern is the care of our pets. We are forever grateful. Thank you Jenni.

Pam continues to amaze me with how well she trains both people and dogs alike. I have had the opportunity to learn from Pam as one of her students and I continue to see the benefits our shelter dogs have as a direct result of Pam's teaching techniques. I have found Pam's teaching style to be friendly, patient and professional, leaving both students and dogs on a positive note and a sense of accomplishment. If you're looking for a dog trainer with a lot of experience training multiple students and dogs each day with positive results, I highly recommend, Pam Francis-Tuss.

Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.

We have a black lab who we got when he was 7 weeks old. When we got him, we were told that he had a mellow personality and that he would be calm. This was not true. Our puppy was a handful, high energy, and out of control. We tried classes, and a trainer, and things did not improve. We found Juniper, and she turned the situation around. She is excellent with dogs and puppies. She was able to provide the right training for our dog, which included positive reinforcement, and proper exercise and diet. Juniper also gave us a lot of pointers about how to interact with our dog. One of our challenges was that our dog had no attention span. Juniper taught us how to do mental training exercises with our dog that enabled him to increase his attention span. And he really enjoyed these too. Theo is still a high energy dog, but he is also obedient and fun to be around. Juniper found a dog park nearby, and we take him every week for a vigorous game of fetch, which he loves. We now live in the house in a more harmonious way and we are very grateful. It took a lot of human and dog social skills to transform our complicated situation into something that works. Juniper has what it takes to understand both your dog and you.

I first met rachelle when I went to get my dog groomed after someone had stolen her off of my porch. she saw how shake and amped up my poor dog was. I had asked her if she knew any trainers for obedience training she told me she did and wouldn't mind coming to my house. we set up a time and she came over. it's been a few months since that first official session and what a tremendous difference in my dog. not only has rachelle given me the tools to help me week to week with sassy but she has the most ccompassion and open heart I have met with a trainer. I have went through some trainers in my years of owning dogs. if it wasn't for her I would be certain sassy would of hurt our other house dog. if I ever have a question she gets back to me with a answer or a solution til the next time I see her. if you have any hesitation if deciding to go with her DONT she was absolutely the best choice I could make. not only do I have a fur baby who is well mannered but the sweetest trainer who is welcomed in my home any time.

Sheila is awesome! She has worked and connected well with my rescue puppy Marley. We worked on obedience with Marley and Sheila was very knowledgeable and gave us many tools to work with our pup. She truly loves and cares for animals and that's very important to have in a dog trainer. She has also promoted my dog bandana business and I thought that was so nice of her. She truly is a honest and amazing dog trainer and I recommend to anyone! Thanks Sheila!!

I have been training with Bob for the past 5 years, doing general obedience and protection work with my 2 German Shepherds. Bob's classes are organized, challenging and stimulating for both handler and dogs. His teachings are practical and are used in everyday situations. He is very capable in dealing with a wide range of behavioural issues as well as all aspects of general training. When obedience training is done off lead it is done in very close proximity of other dogs and incorporates a combination of agility/obstacles. We are also taught how to handle the following situations: • How to control your dog when being approached by another dog or a group of dog(s), encountering cyclist and joggers etc. (objects and people in motion) • How to control your dog in a conflict situation with another dog Bob is quick to assess and take control to avoid problematic situations even before it happens and when something does happen he very quickly bring it under control, calmly. Bob enthusiasm and energetic manner truly reflect his passion for helping people to improve their control over their dogs. His classes are fun and informative, and I can wholeheartedly recommend his classes to anyone.

I went through Tiffany for training my miniature schnauzer Onyx, I was having trouble with Onyx on and off leash. He was very leash reactive when people approached and very stimulated when dogs where around. Tiffany walked me though reading his body language and how to redirect his attention. She was very patient with both Onyx and myself, she took her time to make sure I was comfortable with giving Onyx his commands and helping me with advice for training at home which was great. Onyx has been showing great improvement and we continue to see Tiffany for one on one sessions. I personally recommend training with Tiffany because of her amazing understanding of dog behavior, the use of positive reinforcement, great understanding of obedience training, and also educating owners on continuing working with their dogs at home.

Micaela came to our house to work with our two dogs, both about 2 1/2 years old and in need of some basic obedience and leash training. She had a great way with the dogs, was very observant of their behavior and temperaments, and was patient with both them and me! That last part was important because some of the training techniques do not seem intuitive to me. Additionally, Micaela followed up with an email that reviewed what we had done and included specific instructions about how we should work with the dogs. It's only been one session, but I was very pleased.
