Desiree and her assistant Ronnie took such great care of grooming my Jake and even did a nail trim on my Bud! He's such a scaredy pup and she took her time and calmed him down afterward. Her vet experience helps a lot! The doggos and I love her!
Don is very professional and conscientious. His dog training methods are proving to be very effective for our 4 month old puppy. I recommend him highly.
Our 11 week old German Shepherd puppy responded right away to Kevin's techniques. We have been applying his teachings to our puppy, and we are seeing results. We look forward to our upcoming puppy training sessions with Kevin!
I have known Tierney since 2014 and I am still blown away by her knowledge and skill in dog training/behavior. In June of 2015, I I purchased a 3 year old female Belgian Malinois named Vue that Tierney had put foundations on. This was my first working dog and Tierney did a great job answering all my questions and educating me on the breed as well as making sure that this dog was going to be a good fit for me. Vue was given to me with a foundation in protection work, sport work, nose work, and extremely solid obedience work. Two years with Vue and I can tell you that this is the best dog I have ever had! We have such a strong bond and work perfect together. I would not be where I am with Vue if it wasn't for the skills that Tierney had developed with her. Tierney has been there every step of the way for Vue and I. She has always checked up on us and made sure everything was going good. I know I can always contact her with even the most absurd dog training questions and she always gives me an honest and helpful answer. She continues to help me expand Vue's potential. I appreciate how Tierney uses a wide variety of training methods to create one that is appropriate for the dog and trainer she is working with. She is a problem solver and looks at the big picture when evaluating certain behaviors in a dog. Tierney develops a strong relationship with her clients and dogs she works with. Thanks Tierney!
Faith helped us connect with our new bloodhound puppy. Her training methods are calm and realistic. She taught us how to be productive dog owners as well. We could not have asked for better!
Kelly was very good with our puppy! She helped us learn/teach good manners to our pup.
She is very knowledgeable. We saw our dog improve within one training.
WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.
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.
Denise did a great job with my puppy. It was only the second time she had been bathed and first time with any grooming done. Denise was very patient with her and will be coming back in Dec. to do it again. Thanks for the references.
We met with Kevin for an initial consultation for our 2 boxers. In the short time he spent with us, our dogs learned so very much. Kevin showed an instant connection with our boys and we are excited to start working with him. He was able to answer all our questions and provide honest answers.
Darcie is great at what she does and has a wealth of knowledge for dog training. She responds very quickly and is available via phone/text/email to answer any questions once you become her client. Darcie came to our house and assessed our delicate situation with my dog I’ve had for 9 years that has nervous and aggressive tendencies. We just welcomed our newborn baby recently and were needing some serious help with my husband and i getting on the same page for how to better train our dog as, before the baby, she kind of had free reign of the house and training techniques were not established so we needed some help in how to get our dog to follow our directions and live in a safer environment with the new baby now in the picture. Darcie helped us lay down some ground rules and also many techniques to use to help distract the dog from getting nervous and “jealous” when the baby is around me. After our first training session, she sent us an email afterwards reviewing everything we went over so we had some detailed notes to look back on, and also made sure to follow up afterwards on if we had any questions or concerns with the new training techniques she went over with my husband and i. We had one other training session afterwards to review how things were going and also went over some new techniques to assist with getting our dog to maintain her barking when the doorbell is rang/knocked on. We now have some great tools to help manage our situation better thanks to Darcie. Another great thing is she is not “pushy” and works on a customer needs basis so she will not try to “sell” you on getting some type of training package deal, rather schedule her to come train as needed. Thanks so much Darcie for your help and we look forward to touching base with you as time goes on!
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.
Erin, watched my puppy for 6 hrs. And said my puppy is smart and needs no further training by them and for me to be consistent with Buster taking him out every morning and after sleep and play to go potty and it's been a week and he is doing very well....he is smart. Thanks to Erin.
The individuals who contacted me were very professional and knowledgeable.

My name is Jennyfer. I have been living in this area on and off for 36 years. I have been taking care of animals all my life. I feel that a house is not whole without an animal in it. I have had many jobs taking care of other people's pets, and I see their pets as a member of my family when I'm taking care of them. I am a certified dog trainer and have a degree from Animal Behavior College. I have been training dogs professionally since 2006 but my parents say that I have been training dogs and animals since I was three. I took care of all the neighborhood animals when people were away and trained some of their dogs. I have experience with all types of animals, from horses to mice. I offer the following: * Dog training: group, private, daycare, or board and train * Pet sitting in your house * Boarding in my home * Dog walking
