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..

Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!

I first spoke with Niamh on the phone and she was very generous with her time. She listened to my concerns regarding my new pooch (Charlie) and then offered to come to my home to assess my dog, get to know him (and me.) Niamh was very punctual and as kind in person as she was on the phone. She was very honest and I felt very safe with her in my home. From the minute Niamh arrived she was very professional and very knowledgeable. Niamh took the time we needed. I did not feel rushed or pressured. She went above and beyond and really took her time to listen to my concerns, assess what I needed and what Charlie needed. Her thoughts, assessments and recommendations were all right on pointe. I was feeling bad about how overwhelmed I was and nervous that perhaps Charlie was not a good fit for me and Niamh showed much compassion and understanding. Niamh made it 100% acceptable that I was feeling the way I was and based on her assessment of Charile, gave me hope that in no time and with a little training, Charile was going to feel more confident, less "skiddish" and would be able to be left alone without any acting out or anxiety attacks. She also reassured me that in no time I would find that Charlie was going to be my best buddy. I did everything Niamh suggested and gained my own confidence in the process. She gave me great tips to working with Charlie on some basics and he showed a lot of success in a very short time. I am happy to say Niamh was right! Charlie is a love and we are having so much fun together. He is gaining confidence everyday, he can now be left alone and he is approaching a lot of new situations with less fear. I will follow up with Niamh but I have also taken her suggestion and got Charlie enrolled in school so he can show off how smart and funny he is, enjoy the company of other dogs and most of all, have fun while gaining the confidence he needs to live a long and happy life. Niamh is Quality human being with quality knowledge and skills! I recommend her 100%! Carrie, Shelton, CT

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.

Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!

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 a 12 week old French Bulldog pup that I have had now for 3 weeks. I did not know where to start in regards to training and Karin definitely gave my husband and I a good foundation to begin and a lot of pointers. She took her time with us and our puppy. We felt very comfortable having her in our home. I highly recommend her.

My dog loves Robin! And so do I. Always on time and always staying late! So polite. I was very nervous about starting training with my dog because she is very high-energy and she is already three years old. Robin reassured me that with all of her experience things should go fine and she was right. Taking my dog for a walk has become enjoyable instead of a chore. Huge improvements and such a reasonable price. Thank you Robin!!

Adrienne offers cost effective at home training that we found extremely helpful. We have one year old litter mates and the individual attention in their home environment as well as lessons customized to our specific needs was much more beneficial than previous group classes. We were very comfortable with Adrienne's training philosophy and methods and would highly recommend her.

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.

Bruce has been very patient and informative. He has helped me decide whether a service dog was right for me by providing the crucial information that I couldn't find online. The guidance has been extremely reassuring. I look forward to the process of finding and training a dog with Bruce.

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 have two dogs, a fox hound and a weimeraner. The two dogs would violently fight with each other, which was very scarey indeed. The weimeraner was impossible for me to walk on the leash and he had separation anxiety. Rick assessed these issues right away! Within the first session, I was able to handle walking my dog, with pleasure. Then he worked on the aggression issue and it's been a year since the training and there has not been one fight between them. Also, the weimeraner is able to spend extended periods of time alone without issue now. If you are looking for a trainer, Rick is, without question, the best out there.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
