Very happy with the work Dion has done with our new pup. He is responding very well to the methods employed. Dion seem very good at identifying dog personality traits and how best to go about getting results. He is very direct and to the point which we see very much as a positive in this sort of job. Would highly recommend his services. The training is more expensive than other options out there, but after multiple conversations with other trainers, he seemed like the best fit for our needs. Other trainers interviewed told us many of the behaviors our dog was exhibiting may not be trainable. Dion was up to the task and has done an excellent job.
Pete was a life saver. He taught us the techniques we needed to change our dog's behavior. We went from chaos to calm and began to enjoy our new puppy. Pete always listened to our concerns and provide guidance. Having the training in our house allowed us to work with our dog in her environment.
Laura has helped me get back in the saddle after 18 years. Her horses are fantastic, well rounded, safe, and offer a challenge for riders of all levels. Laura's riding lessons are approximately 1 hour, however she has allowed my lessons to go over the time schedules when needed. She is a good instructor for learning the basics and more. She takes the time to properly address safety for horse and rider as well as the details required to properly care for and own a horse. The care and time she puts into her horses is reflected by the amazing fitness level and happy attitude her animals have.
We learned a lot from Teresa! She helped us with techniques for our 1.5 yr old dog's fear/aggression towards strangers and leash reactivity. We were given great tools during our 3 months of training to continue improving in the future. Teresa is very knowledgeable about animal behavior and a professional that we would certainly recommend.
Kay is amazing. Our Border Collie started learning on day one. She clearly understands how different animals respond to different situations, motivations, etc. We could not be more happy with our experience.
Alex has been helping me improve my happiness as well as my dogs. I have seen greatly improved behavior from my dog and we are still working at getting where we want to be. I feel more confident every week!
We adopted Chappy last year thinking that he was just a little on the shy side. But just days after bringing him home he started snapping and growling at visitors, and avoiding us. Thankfully we found Scott. He really took the time to help us understand our dog's behavior and how we could effectively influence it in a positive way. He showed us the little changes we could make to help Chappy feel more comfortable in our home and with strangers. Within weeks his aggression was gone and if you met him today you’d never guess that our happy, playful dog was ever fearful or aggressive. We’d recommend Scott to anyone looking for dog training and can’t imagine where we’d be without his help.
Lissa took excellent care of my two dogs and cat over an extended weekend getaway. I was so pleased with the communication and attention to every detail that she provided every day. Lissa was very careful to follow my instructions and guidelines. When I arrived home, it was obvious that my dogs were very well cared for, exercised and in a very calm and peaceful state. I've had previous experience with other pet sitting services where I arrived home to unkept, anxiety-ridden, and over-excitable pets and it was so nice NOT to have to re-train them. It was also a great benefit to get regular text messages every day along with beautiful pictures of all three of my girls, giving me peace of mind while I was away that my animals were being shown a lot of attention and love. The service I received with Lissa has made it easier for me to plan weekend getaways and deal with my hectic work schedule, knowing I have someone so trustworthy to take excellent care of my pets when I am unable to. Thanks so much, Lissa!
Working with Bill has been a life saver for our family! We rescued a very sweet Pit Bull mix, but she needs a lot of work. Our pup took to Bill immediately and we saw results and improvements after one session. Bill has been very easy to work with. He always includes the whole family in the training sessions, which is great! He is experienced with aggressive dogs, can assist with a variety of training needs, and is very reasonably priced. I've already referred him to my neighbors! I can't say enough positive things about working with him!
Oh my goodness, where should I even begin?? Through an unfortunate set of circumstances I inherited a physically tiny but hugely horridly behaved Chihuahua, Bruxly. This little menace hated everything and I swear she came in like a guided missile set to destroy! She dug up my garden, jumped into the trash can and carried pieces off to all corners of the house, terrorized my other dog and you name it - she piddled on it. Mostly though, she really hated my husband. She'd come flying out of nowhere with a terrible screaming and just jump on him and then run away again. She was always very sweet with me and I loved her but I was just out of breath from the stress. My husband was yelling and threatening to leave, my poor dog Henrietta was a nervous wreck and I had already worked with 3 trainers who had basically tucked their tails and run when they met Bruxly... When I was connected with Kyli from Frontier K-9 Training it was like someone had given me CPR! She was so calm and knowledgeable and took the time to really explain to me why Bruxly was behaving this way and how we could change it. She helped me understand not only how to teach and use new good behaviors to replace the old naughty ones, but also how to modify Bruxly's environment and routine to break her out of old habits and encourage her into better ones. It's taken a fair bit of work but Kyli was so patient and kind, she was truly a miracle for my household! She clearly and thoroughly answered my endless questions and she was just wonderful with Bruxly and Henrietta. Her love of dogs and love of training and teaching are unmatched in any of the other trainers I worked with or spoke to. Her diverse background and experience in dog (and people!) training give her a real advantage, whether it's teaching basic obedience behaviors or evaluating and fixing problem behaviors.... She helped us with it all! I'm just so grateful to have met and worked with Kyli, my home is finally a more peaceful place again. I'm confident I can continue to help Bruxly make good choices and I know if I need any help or advice Kyli will be there for us. I highly recommend Frontier K-9 Training, I could not be happier with my experience!
A real animal lover from the word go! Both of my dogs love her, and enjoy her company. I appreciate the piece of mind I get when she cares for them.
Annie is very passionate about animals, especially dogs and takes the time and care make sure they are well taken care of. Annie has taken care of my dog a number of times and it has always been a good experience for me and my dog.
Patricia helped me out immensely during a very hard time in my life. My mother had been admitted into the hospital for an extended period of time leaving her 3 cats and large dog alone. As I was busy with work, it make it impossible for me to care for them properly. Thank God for Patricia who'd been highly recommended by a friend. She arrived promptly and took charge of the situation leaving me with the peace of mind I needed to see to my mother's health. Patricia went out of her way to only care for the animals but also spent quality time with them, playing and just hanging with them. She made sure the pets were well fed and that they never felt abandoned or lonely. Patricia was a life saver and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, warm assistant no matter the calling.
Alison has taken my dog Pig for 60-minute walks several times. Long walks really help burn up Pig's excess energy and help her sleep better. Alison is reliable and responsible and I can tell how much she loves Pig!
So my dog has been experiencing some slight dog aggression on our walks. I called Patrice and she was very good about getting back to me and getting something set up. She is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and assessing what the actual problem was. I have only had 2 sessions, but I am feeling very confident that with her training we are going to have much happier walks! I highly recommend her services!
Victoria with Furever Behavior Dog Training is a wonderful trainer. Our dog was a rescue who had lived on the streets and he had many issues. Our dog guarded his food and toys, did not know basic obedience or manners, was not housebroken, did not know to come when called, did not know how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm off, did not know about or like his crate and more. After working with Victoria, we learned how to give our dog the cues he needed to get the behaviors we all wanted. He quickly learned to love his crate as his safe and special place, housebreaking was rapid and our dog learned to trust us. Victoria gave us the tools and skills we needed to be good dog owners and our dog responded positively and swiftly to Victoria's techniques. And, speaking of positive, Victoria only uses positive training methods -- no punishment. And our dog loved, loved, loved Victoria. Well done!

I am an animal lover, and I love spending time with animals. Animals are great companions for people.
I pay more attention to the animals then my phone or anything. I will even dress them up. Sometimes train them. Clean their houses.
