Elaine came to our home to help us with puppy training for our high energy pet. We have worked with the pooch for two weeks using her approach, and have had some progress. Looking forward to her return tomorrow to fine tune our progress and work on some other issues. Hopeful that we can get him civilized, Elaine is very professional and encouraging. We enjoyed her first visit very much.

Steve worked well with not only my dog that I am having some training issues with but also my 15 yo (he was able to pinpoint items on him that I never really noticed but realize now he can improve on). He was wonderful to work with and patient and professional. He was very knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend.

I am so happy that we hired Deb to help with our puppy! She was able to provide us with a ton of information, tips and tricks ! I have tried other puppy training classes, but this was a much better. Our dog was able to learn much easier with the one on one instruction. We were also able to focus on specific areas that we had trouble with. I will be using Deb for future lessons !

We really enjoy working with Nico! We needed help potty training our puppy and getting him on a consistent schedule. Nico's advice was excellent, and we've made more progress in a week than we thought we would in a month. Within a few days our pup was free of accidents and learning some really important tricks. The new schedule even has him sleeping through the night. Thanks, Nico! We're looking forward to more lessons!

Pam is great. She always sends pictures and a little update about her visit. Having her walk my puppy makes me feel so much better when I have to leave him alone during the day. Very trustworthy .

We have our Black Lab Retriever Chloe in puppy manners class with Marion and she is adept at reading each dogs' body language and determining when they need a break to go outside for a potty break or to settle and calm down before playing some more. We are beginning positive reinforcement training and our children our learning how to properly reward Chloe when she does what we ask her to. We are looking forward to the additional building blocks of the Puppy Training course so we can enjoy spending many years with a well-trained and loving companion.

We have a dog that was really poorly behaved and he has trained up beyond expectations. Training is very kind and hands on. Highly recommended

Dan was fabulous! Super informative and effective. He even follows up to check on how the puppy training is going to be sure we don’t have issues or more questions. Best 95.00 we could’ve spent for our new baby! We will be calling Dan again for more advanced training when the time is right!

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!

Steve is definitely a professional and we are so glad that we chose to train our puppy with him. After our training session with Steve; it was like we had a completely different dog. Thank you Steve for listening to our concerns, for being so patient with us and making sure we were comfortable and confident with everything. We also appreciate that Steve continues to provide support if we ever need it in the future.

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.

Pilar has done a fantastic job training our pup on a leash! I have counted on her to take care of my baby daily for the past 8 years. She did great working with her, as huskies are an intelligent yet stubborn and mischievous breed.

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.

What a great experience for us to have such a wonderful place for our energetic labradoodle puppy Max. Christine and Evelyn are fabulous, and take such good care of the animals. We will use them any time we are away, and know that Maxwell, our pooch, is in great hands! I highly recommend their services. :)

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%!!!!
