We were looking for a trainer for our 7 month old puppy for behavior training. We had one visit so far and were very happy with the information we learned. I would recommend coexisting canine training..

Niamh is really wonderful to work with. My husband and I got a young mini dachshund puppy named Pickles and as first time dog owners needed help house breaking and training him. Niamh has made several in home visits and has taught us so much. She has also allowed Pickles to visit her home to meet her amazing family and dogs. This helped socialize Pickles and has taught him to be confident around new people and other pets. My husband and I recommend her services to any dog owners in need. She is truly reliable, knowledgable, and very kind hearted. She even has background as a nurse and veterinary technician! Pickles, my husband, and I are so happy to have her :)

Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.

Andrew was excellent! He is very relaxed and clear with instructions, and knew just how to get my dog, Pippin, to love him from the first moment they met. I'd done some training on my own with Pippin, but we reached a road block where I wasn't sure how to continue to make progress with him. Andrew helped break the steps down to be really manageable, and with some consistent homework on my part, we made huge leaps! Where we started: Pippin knew a few commands like sit and lay down while in the house, but whenever there were new people, other dogs or distractions, he would get hyperactive and wouldn't listen at all... On walks, most of the time it was like he didn't even realize I was there, and it was almost impossible to catch his attention. Where we ended up after training with Andrew: Pippin is now MUCH more polite when greeting people and other dogs, walks calmly outside and is a great listener! Even friends and family members have commented on how calm, relaxed and obedient he has become! I'm thrilled that by using the techniques we covered with Andrew, Pippin and I have developed a stronger bond and healthier habits that will ultimately keep him safer on our outings. Thanks, Andrew!!

I have had an excellent experience working with Adrienne Mesko. She provided a 4 week board and train session for my 2 yr old, 85lb. Terrier-mix, Winny. She was immediately responsive to all my inquiries from my initial contact, throughout training and after training was completed. She clearly laid out a plan for my dog's training. She was professional, clear and courteous in all business matters. Adrienne is a top notch dog trainer. She took on the daunting task of working with my difficult dog with confidence and understanding. She provided the level of training that she promised in the amount of time she estimated. She gave regular updates and progress reports. I am thrilled with my dog's progress and behavior. After the training was completed Adrienne spent time with me answering my questions, demonstrating equipment use and worked with me and Winny to transfer the knowledge of methods that worked so effectively with my dog. Due to her efforts I now have a dog who is well behaved and responsive. In addition, Adrienne is a kind and considerate person who took the time to listen and help. She is terrific to work with and I highly recommend her board and train program and off-leash training.

Christine aka "the new dog whisperer" not only taught me how to train my dog she took the time to get to know me. She was spot on with dog training and behavioral issues. She helped me become "the leader of the pack" using dog-friendly, techniques (NO SHOCK COLLAR, OR HARSH METHODS EVER!!!). Her goal was for my dog to love and respect me not fear me . She will work with you in your home addressing issues such as housebreaking, separation anxiety, aggression, jumping up, puppy nipping, walking on leash, and much more. Christine can help you with ANY BREED, ANY AGE, ANY ISSUE! Christine was available to help work around my hectic schedule and allowed time for the whole family to be involved. Before Christine trained Roxy our "French Mastiff" Roxy was jumping up on our company , barking non-stop , pulling on the leash to the point we could not walk her without our arms being pulled outta our sockets, begging for food and not listening to her commands such as sit , stay and come . With just a few shorts weeks Roxy was and is a changed dog . She is gentle , never jumps up on people or furniture . Our Roxy couldn't have made this transition without the training of Christine!

Sarah truly cares about your pet. She has done an excellent job aiding me in walking and training my Old English Bulldog. More importantly, when the fire alarm in my building went off while I was at work, Sarah was nearby and made sure my dog, my best friend, was taken care of. I couldn't ask for any greater service.

Joyce works great with my female Rottweiler. When I hired her my pup had previous training of basic commands, and was well behaved. Joyce enabled me to have more control of my dog, and she is now able to go out with me without a leash. With her style of dog training it gave me a deeper bond with my dog. In addition, it has given me peace of mind that my dog will listen to the commands that I am giving her. I would recommend Joyce to any dog owner regardless of what needs they may have. I have recommended Joyce to my girlfriend and they have just started training her Shiba Inu! It has been such a great time working with her. Every training session she sends out a recap of the training so you don't miss a beat.

Gus gave us excellent advice and educated us so that we better understand our dog's behavior. Our rotties responded very well to him and his training techniques and we are continuing to work on training them ourselves. I am more confident now, that we can do this! Thank you Gus!

My wife and I had a great experience with Mary at Canine Love Dog Training. Mary was on time, professional and answered all of our questions in detail. She was a pleasure to work with and our Golden Retriever loved her. I would recommend Mary to friends and family so give Mary a call if you would like training or advice.

We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.

I was a brand new dog owner and wanted to make sure I did everything right for my 8 week old four legged family member regarding her training. So after some research, my husband and I decided to go with Sue Grey for training and have never regretted that decision! Sue Grey is an excellent trainer and knows what she's doing! She's gentle but firm when needed and very patient. She really loves what she does, and it shows in every command she's shown my now almost year old lab to do! I have and will continue to recommend Sue for training!

My 8 month old shar pei was a good dog. Smart too but true to his breed he was stubborn!! I had tried other trainers who helped but he needed more. Hiring JOLEAN at k9 advanced was the best choice I made!! She worked wonders w my dog and he truly tested her expertise and skill!! He was a true challenge for her but I now have a well trained dog and friend. Jolean was dedicated and determined that he be the dog I hoped he would be. I am very thankful to Jolean and highly recommend her. She far exceeded my expectations.

I worked with Chris when he was just starting. I have a female Rottweiler mix who was very dog aggressive and I was trying to rescue another dog. I had my dog for 7 years before I was able to have her around another dog. I thought it was impossible. I was very nervous after breaking up multiple dog fights with her and getting bitten once. Chris gave me the tools to be in control of my dog. He made me confident and made it fun. Training with my dog was something I looked forward to and was proud of. I saw progress every week. We now have not only adopted another dog, we have adopted 3 more! My dog that I started with assists me in training the new guys. She is confident and content and has a completely new attitude. Chris completely changed how I interacted with my dog. Thank you so much!

Knowledgeable and able to tailor training to fit my individual dog and the concerns of my family. The consultation helped us get to know each other and create a plan that really helped our dog with his leash reactivity as well as some house training issues that were still lingering.
