Maureen Henderson of Sit, Down, Stay Dog Training did an excellent job in helping us get off to a great start in training our Vizsla. I was amazed how much we learned even in the first hour! She is knowledgeable and friendly and had our dog demonstrating good behaviors almost immediately. I wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it. Now he is just as well behaved with me!

David is a phenomenal trainer. We have a 1 1/2 year old pit mix rescue. We had only had him a week when David came over for training. In just one session, our dog made major strides in all areas of training. David went above and beyond expectations and even helped us with an incident at a dog park where our dog was attacked by another dog, by showing us how to safely separate the dogs and protect our dog from the aggressor dog. After following David's instructions for the following week we have continued to see improvements. We get complements about our well behaved dog when we are out in public. I recommend that anyone looking for a dog trainer contact David at A Best Friend Certified Dog Training.

Todd was great with our 8 month old puppy Jake. I loved how even before we hired him he was reaching out to me to see if he would be the trainer for us. Jake looked forward to seeing him every week and has really helped our family keep Jake safe through commands and calm when new people come to the house. We highly recommend Todd and South Orlando Dog Training.

I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.

I used Canine Connection for training my Chihuahua Bandit as a puppy. Chelsea helped me to get him socialized and have amazing manners right away. I was incredibly happy with the training she provided and very sad to lose her when I moved to another state. Though I like my new trainer in my new state, nothing compares to what Chelsea was able to teach me and accomplish during our sessions. I wish I could have moves her with me so she could help bandit continue his doggy education under her skillful direction.

Rose is amazing! She has been working my 8 month old beagle. Rose has been working w/ us on leash training, sit, stay, come, not jumping and has really helped w/ the nipping and biting. I highly recommend her for anyone that needs dog training. She is worth every penny.

We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.

Our dog has severe fear aggression, he will attack anything that is strange to him including people and other dogs. We tried PetCo and another trainer and had no luck. Von Asgard helped our dog. It took a lot of hard work and time but he is much more controlled and confident. He still has much work ahead of him, but the improvement is promising. The location is outdoor cages with indoors at night. When we dropped our dog off at first, I was very skeptical and concerned that it wasn't going to help. I am proud to say they were wonderful, did what they promised, and kept us up to date on his progress.

Quinn worked with one of my daily dog walking clients, Blue. Blue is 130+lbs of pure muscle and strength at the young age of 9mths. He did not walk well on his leash, was reactive to other dogs when on leash and had major issues with lunging at box trucks and other animals. After spending two weeks in Board & Train with Quinn, Blue’s behavior has completely changed! He walks effortlessly on his leash with his head held high. He no longer reacts to other leashed dogs nor does he lunge at animals or box trucks! Quinn was willing to work with myself and the sitter I have assigned to Blue’s daily walks to ensure a smooth transition. Quinn is extremely skilled and very professional. I highly recommend his services to my clients on a regular basis.
