I can honestly not express how impressed we were with Mr. Kessler and his training. We were at the end of our rope with our two rescue dogs and their behaviors. Within minutes of entering our home, we were given valuable insight to why the dogs were acting the way they were. After the very first lesson, we were able to use his teachings and our newest rescue now sits on command. Something we honestly thought would be impossible. He was also able to tell us that all our good intentions were not helping our dogs but we were actually making things worse. It will be a very long road (each dog came with quite a bit of baggage) but I am very optimistic that with a lot of work and the great training provided by Mr. Kessler, we will have happy, confident, healthy (and obedient!!) dogs. I highly recommend Purely Positive Dog Training.
Michele is an incredibly talented pet sitter and animal lover. Our Emmet loved every minute Michele came to spend time with him! Not only did she play with him, she also began training him on basic commands, fed our fish AND got our mail for us! I put 100% trust into Michele and gave her complete freedom with training Emmet. I am certainly glad I did and look forward to many more visits and pet sitting opportunities!
Ron Pfierman saved the life of my niece's puppy, Daisy. We are so thankful for Ron and what he did for Daisy. We are a family of dogs. I have 2, our mom has 2 and our dad has 3 and Tracey has Daisy. We just couldn't consider putting a family member down unless there were no other option. Ron was our only option and he saved Daisy's life. He does not know this - but in our household's, Ron is known as Uncle Ron. Out of the kindness of his heart and his love for dogs, he took on our little Cujo. He did not do this as a business person. He probably lost money on little Daisy because of the amount of effort he had to put into rehabilitating her. I would recommend Ron to anyone for any dog training. Not just special cases. He helped me with my dogs . Not only did he save Daisy's life, he has taught me to be a better dog owner. I learned things from just watching him work with my dogs. Thank you, again, Uncle Ron. Sincerely - Jamie, Tracey, Brooke, Daisy, Lily and Moose.
Finally a trainer that knows what he’s doing!!!! I have been to petco training and even hired 3 other trainers to help with my dogs and have had horrible results even having to take my dog to emergency vet with hives because the other trainer stressed him out so bad. Right away I knew this guy was different. He took control and knew what he was seeing. My dogs have responded great and now listen and behave on command without being bribed with treats. I am sooo impressed!!! He is very flexible around your schedule and I wouldn’t recommend any other trainer. This guy knows what he’s doing!
Rayfield and Alpha Dog Academy was excellent. Full of knowledge and patient. He listened to our needs and designed a detailed prescription to help us and our Shepherd. I would highly recommend him!
Hello out there dog lovers!Having a problem with your dog?Whether it be aggression,other dogs,small children,leash walking or just general obedience Janine is the woman you want on the other side of your dogs leash! I was having continuous issues with my German Shepard nixon with all the issues above.So I scouted around trying to find what would best serve my dog & receive the training he required. Janine came to my house and we spoke for about a good hour about what the problems were and how to best handle the situation being bestowed upon her.She was very thorough in Her line of questioning and was extremely attentive in what I had to say.Moving forward.janine took nixon for just over 2 weeks and came back a different dog! I had to drop him off at her house(which was good for I wanted to know where my dog was gonna be.)she was with him every moment of the day teaching Him leash walking skills,temperament with other animals,and Children(which were her own kids!)Needless to say that I was was the problem and not the dog. After I got my dog back she stayed with me for around 2 hrs explaining to me that in order for him to stay this way I had to continue in the training of him.after that Janine did a couple follow up visits to see how he was responding And 1of those visits we went to pet smart to see how he would react to other animals in my care...which was great!All the same, If you have any issues with your pet INSPIRED K9 is where you wanna take your dog!!! I can't thank her enough for the training & guidance I received from her and would like to say thank you again for all your hard work!!
We have been working with Shelby now for a few months. She has done a great job helping us work with our Australian Shepherd (a two-year old male recent rescue). We have taught him basic commands, how to walk on leash, how to greet people when they come to the house and many other things. As dog owners, Shelby has taught us how to be in charge of our dog and as a result he is much calmer and better behaved. We would describe her style of training as positive reenforcement with mild verbal corrections when appropriate. Shelby has been great to work with and our dog has responded really well to her. Shelby has a lot of great skills and knowledge that she has shared with us. She is also creative and willing to think outside the box when something we try with our dog does not work. The cost is very reasonable and we have seen immediate and continued improvement in our dog's behavior. We highly recommend her.
Fido's Gym is the BEST and most FUN place for dogs EVER! I literally can't even say the word "gym" anymore around my Boxer Fiona because she starts whining and crying. She absolutely LOVES going to Fido's. Fiona is a white Boxer and she is very active as she's only 1 year old. Since she is white, she cannot be in the sun for more than a few minutes before getting sunburned. Fido's Gym was such a blessing for our family. Not only is the facility indoors and really large (for her to run around in) but it's super clean and there's tons of fun toys (and friends) for her to play with. I've noticed a significant change in her behavior (for the better) since bringing her to Fido's Gym and letting her socialize with other dogs as well as burn some over her Boxer energy off. Heather the owner of Fido's Gym is SO friendly and she's great with placing other dogs with the same temperament as your dog. She's an amazing dog trainer as well as a dog lover and you can tell right away when you meet her. I've met so many nice people (and pups) at Fido's and Fiona and I really look forward to going there each week. If your looking for a fun place to bring your dog, I would highly recommend Fido's Gym.
Excellent follow up, very comfortable with my dog, easy to work with. Amanda is experienced and professional.
You can tell that Joy really loves dogs and has a passion for training. She shares knowledge, is very honest and up front about what is best for training your dog, and is very thorough in demonstrating. Very glad I chose her to start my pup off right!
Sandi really listens to you & your needs. Then addresses them with positive training. Very knowledgeable!
Brandy is patient with my labs. They are older dogs who were in serious need of training. I had thought all hope was lost but not so! They are following directions, playing well together and I can open my door without a scene. This happened with simple commands and patience. Brandy had to teach US how to be dog parents and lead our dogs. Still a work in progress but we can see positive results. Thank you!!!!!
I would never go anywhere else for training or boarding. The owner Michelle and her assistants are knowledgeable loving, caring and 100% dedicated to the well being of all the pets in their care.
Though new to training as a business of her own she has trained dogs for years. She is knowledgeable, patient and calm a great combination for trading a Portugeese Water Dog. I am looking forward to a well trained dog though our relationship.
I became an animal trainer because of my love for animals and also to help people communicate with their pets. I worked as a dog trainer for 2 years after I graduated from college. After that, I worked for a company that trains animals for television and does the live animal shows at Universal Studios. I have just recently moved home and would like to continue caring for animals and helping owners understand their pets. I can pet sit, dog walk, or help train any pet.

We breed American bulldogs and have been for 10 years. I have been in the animal business for 30 years, raising pets of all varieties, owning pet stores, and training dogs, cats, birds, and even fish. I spent 4 years in training seals and sea lions as well as dolphins. I have worked closely with veterinarians, from exams to surgeries. I am sure of myself with all sizes and breeds of dogs. I assist in potty training, basic home training, and more advanced commands. I do not train for protection. I do work your dog into your family lifestyle and any individual, personal or medical issues you may have. I work with kindness and love and hands-on confidence and touch. They are a large part of our world.
I am training at your home. I work on obedience, special needs, lifetime commitment, problem solving and housebreaking for any age and any breed.
We work on dog training and behavior modification. We are specializing in private lessons. We have AKC CGC certification. Group lessons are also available. We also provide dog walking and boarding.
I focus on a variety of services. My philosophy is that no dog is untrainable. From potty training to loose-leash walking to behavior issues, you name it, and we can work through it. All I ask from the owner is dedication and willingness to learn. I'll bring you the tools to success; however, it is up to you to use them. No breed is left behind with me. All breeds are welcome. I also have experience with rescued dogs who may have confidence issues. I am an animal lover turned professional dog trainer.
I am a private dog trainer, private groomer, and veterinary technician. I will take care of all your furry friends' needs, whatever they may be.
