I hired Karen to help us with my newly rescued cockapoo that had a serious issue with aggressive behavior and biting. The first session with Karen was in my home for three hours. In that time Karen explained her background, philosophy, and approach to dog training, where I am the pack leader, not my dog.. The information she gave us was invaluable, and we worked with Jax, using everything Karen advised us to do. When we had our next session, Karen first sat with us to hear how things were going, and I was so excited to tell her of Jax's progress! I would definitely recommend Karen of Bow Wow Method to help you train your dog. She is friendly, professional, experienced, and reasonably priced. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Š

Duane Overturf speaks dog! He is an excellent dog trainer and a really great guy. I highly recommend Duane for all your dog training needs. He has helped me with several of my dogs, including Baldwin who was the #1 Puli in agility in America. The obedience Baldwin learned with Duane helped him excel in agility and everything he did, including visiting children in the hospital as a therapy dog.

I contacted Kim about our new rescue adoption, Keira, a husky/shepherd mix. Keira had some bad habits that needed to be resolved, as well as learning basic commands. In addition, we needed her socialized with our cats. I liked how Kim used a variety of methods in working with Keira--not just a "one size fits all" approach. She has extensive experience in working with GSD as well, so she provided a lot of insight into the "thinking" of this breed. We learned so much & Keira responded to the training. I would highly recommend Kim to others that want an individual approach to training their dog.

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.

Due to an injury I am unable to walk my dog. After speaking with Ali on the phone, I knew found the right person. Her love for dogs is obvious, and my dog loves her too. Ali reinforces the training I have already done with my dog and challenges her with new experiences on their walk. I would highly recommend Ali for any pet care needs, and will continue to use her in the future even when I'm better.

It is very nice to work with Marcia at class. She is patient, understanding and very well versed in dog training techniques in addition to understanding dogs and their behavior in relation to their owners. I always look forward to her classes. And so too does my dog. She knows a lot.

We loved Sophia! She is very personable and we knew Hank was in great hands while he was boarded and trained. We especially found the follow-up lessons to be beneficial in helping us put his new skills to use and practice commands. We are sad that Sophia is moving, but thankful for all the help she has provided us and our dog Hank!

I have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.

We have 2 dog and 1 started being aggressive toward the other. Within a few days of contact Stephani came over and reviewed our dogs and our situation, came up with a plan, got my husband on board with the training (THAT was a miracle!) and started training us how to handle our dogs better. She's very thorough and has a very behavioral approach (dog whisperer-ish) which we really connected with. We look forward to our learning sessions, Thanks Stephani!

Her training was so helpful. I recommend her from my experience. My dog Craig , (Manchester terrier, male) had a trained by Natalie when he was 4 years old. Because he has a "hyper" personality, he needed a little discipline. I surprised how he changed after basic training. After Natalie gave him a basic behavior modification, his behavior has so much better than before. Craig became more calm, less barking at home, be able to walk with owner's pace when he walk. He also learned " Stay". Now he can sit and wait for his meal even for a 1minute ! He has been patient after trained with Natalie. She is trustworthy as well. I worried about relationship between dog and trainer at first, yet she was able to make good relationship. My dog trust her, and enjoyed training with her. Natalie gave us a great experience and knowledge.

I walk and sit dogs. I've done it a lot of times. I understand how people can be so busy and can't walk their dogs, or have to go out of town where dogs just can't go. I will do everything I can to make sure the dogs are safe and happy.
