Great choice for complete dog training
Jane Skarka has been my neighbor for many years during which she has cared for and rescued numerous animals. Caring for dogs and cats is the central passion of her life. My need for pet care emerged during the past year and I never even considered anyone other than Jane. She is loving, trustworthy and reliable. My standard poodle, Kobey, goes berserk with joy when she comes to get him for trips to the dog park or day care. (I'm a bit jealous.) Jane has managed to transform Kobey from a cat chaser to a cat lover and gives me great advice on pet care and training tips. She is much more to my dog than a petsitter, I consider her to be his "goddess mother" and wholeheartedly endorse her services.
We love Kay and are so happy to have her working with us on puppy training. She is full of helpful ideas and has been instrumental in teaching each of us (3 teenagers included) how to best train and get the results we are looking for. Each session she brings new information and tools to train with and our puppy just loves her. We are so grateful to have her with us on this journey!
Matt did an incredible job training our dog Lucy. I worked every week with her and trained her at her pace instead of trying to rush her. I really appreciated his care and understanding of our dogs feelings. He was very flexible with the classes which was great for our schedules. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to obedience train their dog.
The training I have been doing with Bill have been very good. He uses a step by step program and in very consistent in the training. We started with the very basics of sit and down and have built on it. Unlike other training where they teach one thing do it once and then move to another thing, Bill does a lot of repetition which I believe is very important for the puppy to remember. I have also seen the work he has done with another dog that is more advanced as to where I am and I see where I can take my puppies training to. I really enjoy working with Bill and would recommend him to anyone.
Rogue Foothill Dog Training continues to provide an incredibly positive experience for both myself and my dog. Allison is punctual, professional and proficient. In addition to working effectively with my dog, she has been patient and readily available to advise me on various scenarios outside of training sessions. It is obvious that training dogs is a passion of Allison's. She is dedicated to teaching skills and strategies to both myself and my dog, in an effort to create a happy, healthy relationship. Allison's facilities are of high quality and we feel confident using RFDT services and recommending them to other dog lovers. 5 stars for Rogue Foothill Dog Training and 5 stars for Allison.
My dog Pixie and I have been working with Michelle for the last few months, and it has been life changing! Pixie's habit of jumping on people, pulling hard on the leash during walks and her reactivity to dogs (and bunnies!) were all making it difficult to have fun and enjoy my dog. Within 5 minutes of meeting my dog, Michelle had Pixie listening and focused on her, and following all the basic commands she gets too excited to follow around new people! It was so impressive! Michelle is always professional, and always willing to spend whatever time the dog and owner need during that session to introduce and practice new things. She is great about answering questions and giving homework that really reinforces the training. We have worked on door manners, greetings, walking easily on leash and her reactivity to dogs and bunnies! It really is like having a new dog! All with positive reinforcement (no awful shock collar!). And the best part, Michelle is teaching me how to be a better friend to my dog, by helping me pay better attention to Pixie's reactions to the world around her. I plan on getting another dog in the future, and I will definitely have Michelle at Peak train my new baby as well! (Picture is of Pixie in a down-wait with treats on feet)

I work alone. I do dog/puppy training, walking and pet sitting. I have a very high passion for animals, and I love working with animals.
Nicole does a great job with my two Bulldogs. She is always on time and never has a problem doing the little things like giving them their medication or feeding them if asked. She really cares about thr dogs and always gives me a report after she leaves. I'm very grateful she is around.
