Steve did a great job in not only training my dog but training me to understand the reasoning behind everything. He made sure I knew why we did something and how to correct my dog's actions if necessary. Steve was very informative and helpful and made it known he's only a phone call away if I need assistance on something or have a quick question.

Deb was on time and her knowledge of dogs and training can only be the sum of many years in the dog training industry. Our Girly listen to her and she made dog training look easy. I highly recommend her.

We had a fantastic experience with Niko. Our dog was a little shy on the first meeting, but loved him every other time he came over. Niko trained us well to train our dog, which is the best way, as you need to keep reinforcing the training. I highly recommend him for anyone willing to put a little work into training their dog.

It is very difficult leaving my dog and cat when going away, but knowing that Pam is taking care of them relieves me of any anxiety I might have. She is reliable, trustworthy and is a true lover of animals. I know they are in excellent hands and recommend highly Pam for any of your pet needs.

My two dogs attended Adult Manners I class with Marion O'Neil. Marion did give us many tips on how to help our dogs follow direction. They have both made strides in their behavior. We are pleased that we attended Molasses Creek Dog Training.

Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.

Heather is very competent. My very large dog was an obnoxious jumper and had to be locked up every time anyone came into the house. She almost knocked some of my friends to the floor with her jumping!! Now I am able to control her and she no longer jumps up on people. Finally I have a dog with good manners! Heather stressed how important it was for me to be motivated to participate in the training of my dog, so I did my homework faithfully in between sessions, and was incredibly consistent, which really paid off. Heather is an excellent trainer and if you're really ready to work along with her you'll have a well mannered and happy dog.

Clare Owings has been working with my 18 year old son and his 8 year old Labrador/boxer, with obedience training. On the first visit, I could tell immediately, she had the perfect personality and patience to help make this a pleasant experience. I found her ad in the local paper, and contacted her, without any prior references. Clare was available the next day, and arrived several minutes early for the first lesson (And each one since). She charges a reasonable fee , considering she provides more than just dog training. She has a genuine interest in my son and his future. They talk extensively about anything and everything...high school, college, life. Clare comes to the house for lessons and has also met at a nearby park.....wherever is convenient for my son. I highly recommend Clare Owings! We are fortunate (in many ways) to have found her!

Just catching up on reviews even though we weren't able to take our dog YET. After talking to this incredibly professional K9 EXPERT, not just a trainer, I was thrilled he'd consider, taking my dog for "K9 & human Education. I've been through 6th different "Obedience Courses" with all my other dogs & have a pretty good idea, who is a good trainer and who is not. However we couldn't go through the course; my dog developed an immune complex disorder with his feet & toes. The Vet advised against his doing any strenuous exercise for at least 3-4 months. Our dog's been on special diet, dietary supplements & strong temporary meds for 2+ months. His feet look fantastic. Our Vet down here is amazing too. So--Come Autumn I hope J Mac Academy will have time to begin retraining our Aussie. Still, I was so impressed with J Mac K-9 Academy's knowledge & philosophy of canine training, we'd be indeed lucky to have the benefit of his experience. Hope we can work our dog in.

Matt trained me and my 6 month old German Shepard. He is a wonderful trainer. Very patient and knowledgable. He explained and demonstrated each step during our 8 sessions with him, very focused. He made me and my dog a great successful team. I am comfortable to take Lacey anywhere. Would recommend Matt for any dog training. You can not get a better trainer that Matt.

Nelson is the most skilled and productive dog trainer I have ever met. The other 3 trainers I took my 2 Aussies to couldn’t handle them but Nelson handled them very well. He knows which training each of my dogs need so I am very content with his service. I definately recommand Riedel k9 if your dog needs training.

First Class Wags is a first class company! The owner, Robin, is on the ball with replying to requests for service. She and her staff are very accommodating, and very professional. My dogs look forward to their dogwalker spending time with them, and they are a lot happier. Neighbors have remarked how happy my dogs are when they are out with their dogwalker. And, if the dog is happy, the mom is happy!

Ryker LOVES Mark. I've seen such a huge improvement pertaining to many of Ryker's behavioral issues since we started working with Mark and am looking forward to seeing many more. I'd previously done a bit of training with Ryker, but never got these types of results. Extremely happy with his service and would recommend 100%!!!!

Beth from Canine Einstein is absolutely amazing! She came to my house last night and worked with my new adopted rescue beagle, Charlotte. She is 2 years old and hasn't had any type of training before. She's not housebroken, she begs for food during all mealtimes, she jumps on tables (something I've never seen any dog do before!) and is pretty much into everything. We needed some serious help!! Beth is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and very soft spoken too. By the end of the night she had Charlotte sitting and staying (which is something she's Never done). Her normal things were to jump on you, stand on all 4 legs, stand on 2 legs while leaning against you, or to lay down and sleep but never sit!! Now Charlotte is becoming a completely different dog thanks to Beth. It's like night and day and I'm so relieved. Today Charlotte and I worked on all of the things that we learned last night and she's been doing fantastic. Beth is a truly gifted woman!

We hired Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward
