Maureen provided an immense amount of help for us and our pup who was afraid of going outside! By giving us a different perspective on the situation, her intuition and expertise helped solve the problem almost immediately. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog/puppy trainer. She was a pleasure to meet and work with!

David Ochoa, in my opinion, is probably one of the best dog trainers I have had the pleasure to work with. I have some physical limitations, that he was able to address & modify to my particular needs, while teaching me a different approach to train my 73 pound black lab mix named Churchill (he also helped me with my 13 pound dog, Winston). I had had several bad falls while walking Churchill. I desperately need help to stop Churchill lunging at barking aggressive dogs. David explained what I had to do, why I needed to think like an alpha canine, and how I was to implement the corrections with Churchill. David's knowledge about dogs is incredible; he truly understands what he is doing & his love of dogs is clearly seen. Just trust him and remember you must be the top dog in the house. I highly recommend David, as does my spouse! Already, after 2 days, I have gotten compliments on how good Churchill is behaving. David said I could call him at any time if I had any further questions about handling my dogs. He knows what he is doing!!

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.

We adopted a very shy and undersocialized young dog from a local rescue. With training and group socialization led by Chelsea @ Canine Connection, we were able to transform into a confident and friendly little girl. We will always be grateful for the help she provided (and continues to provide) for us.

Rose has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and patience has exceeded my expectations. She is what a real dog trainer should be. I have spent a lot of money in the past with others with no end result and after just a short time I have already seen great results that continue even after she leaves our home. My Pitbull and Bull Dog love her and are growing to have much better manners. We are very grateful for the work she has put into the training and educating us to be better owners. Will recommend to friends and family without a doubt!

My experience with Christine and K9 Holistics was nothing short of amazing. First, I want to explain that at 37 years of age, Quinn is my first pup, therefore I had very little knowledge and needed someone who would not just train the pup, but train me as well. And this is exactly what Christine did. She took my level of knowledge into consideration, and designed a plan that my wife and I followed with our pup. She always followed up with detailed homework for us to maintain Quinn's training throughout the week. Quinn's behavior changed dramatically over the short 6 weeks that we spent together. He was never a bad-behaved dog, but he went from being an untrained dog, to a dog that could follow all of the basic obedience commands with ease and consistency. Months after our time together ended, and even after I moved 4 states away, Christine is still in touch with me to see how Quinn is transitioning to his new environments, and to ensure that I don't have any additional needs. I highly recommend Christine to anyone who cares a lot about their dog. You will not be disappointing and your dog will thank you!

I had just gotten my nearly 1-year-old puppy and realized she was showing aggressive tendencies toward people and other animals in addition to submissive peeing. In a matter of weeks Brett has my dog on the right track. He was the only trainer we had a consultation with that started off showing genuine interest and care for my dog, as well as a energetic, take-control attitude. I would highly recommend Dog-Eze.

First off I would just like to tell you that Robin is AMAZING at what she does. If you are looking for someone who can train your dog and more importantly you, she is the one and only person I would recommend. She embraces the "be the pack-leader" philosophy along with positive reinforcement. I called Robin in desperation about our newest dog, Zeus; she listened to my concerns and even made time to come out that very same day and the training started right then. From she moment she walked in the door, she commanded my dog's attention just by using her presence, posture, and eye contact- a few treats didn't hurt either! Not only did she ask for and receive Zeus's respect, she showed me how to get the same results. Robin gave me the tools I needed to be able to "lead" my dog and establish that I was in charge and that he could trust that I would protect him from anything he feared. Our first session was only an hour but by the time she walked out the door, I was reassured and confident that I could help Zeus be the dog he wanted and we needed him to be with her help. I cannot thank Robin enough because I truly believe that without her help Zeus would not be the fantastic dog that he is. So, THANK YOU ROBIN! You are THE BEST! -Hillary & Zeus

Robin is by far the most experience dog trainer I have ever met. She made the crate and potty training for my 9 weeks old puppy like a breeze. I followed Robin guideline religiously and after one week, my puppy was totally house broken and running to the door for potty. My puppy slept in her crate for 7 to 8 hours, walking well for the puppy on the leash in less than a week. . Robin has been there for us anytime we had question. She is so caring that I feel she is my best friend not just a trainer. If you want to enjoy your puppy without any extra stress, just call her. You won't regret it.

My wife and I highly recommend Angela. She is an excellent dog trainer. She is very patient and calm when providing dog training services. Angela not only trains the dog, she trains the owners on the appropriate techniques to use when she leaves. She is always on time and reasonably priced. When I hear someone talking about bringing home a puppy, I always give them Angela's name and number. We are about to welcome home our second dog and will be enlisting Angela's help to get him off on the right paw. Chris and Nikki Bedell

Caroline did exceptional work with an aggressive shelter dog that had potential but needed to relax around people and other dogs. It worked: Athena was adopted about 6 months ago and is settled and happy in a wonderful forever home where she's cared for, loved and appreciated.

Lane has a true understanding of dogs. I Met lane walking around downtown Dunedin when my GSD (German Shepherd dog) was about 4 months old(about a year ago). We spoke of a mutual love for the breed and how both of our grandparents were involved in K9 training (my grandfather was a k9 judge). Lane never pushed a service our a sales pitch on me he asked me some questions about my GSD. I let him know I was working with a trainer but at times my puppy seemed to rule us. He then told me he moved to the area and is training dogs here and if i ever needed help to call him (His expertise includes guard dogs, behaviors, advance training). During the past year we still were working with the original trainer who was very good as well. Something was missing though and we both felt that we taught my GSD everything we could but, he had a hurdle. You see my GSD would see other dogs and become over stimulated and hard to control and this started at about 7 months old ( He is a very intelligent and high drive GSD who's a sweetheart but stubborn.). He would jump on everybody not listen and tend to be just a brat. With dogs though he would bark aggressively and scare other people even though he just wanted to play he also seemed to be scared of them. So my trainer said let's take some time off and figure out something later. My wife and I talked about how he just needed to age and mellow but I felt this could not wait. I also mentioned how we met Lane and we should call him, but we were feeling a little discouraged and felt it may be better to wait. The next afternoon on the way to the beach I saw Lane walking two dogs and told my wife it's a sign let's just call him and try it. Lane gave us a free consultation that was over an hour. He then gave us his feedback and gave us pricing that was very competitive to any big box store but his is one on one. The difference with Lane though has been dramatic already, he truly has a passion and love for his career. After just a few weeks my GSD has improved with not only his old training but new training as well. My GSD is walking better on leash, reacting less and learning to be a companion and not pushing to be an alpha. Lanes knowledge of reading a dog has been honed since a young age and it shows. My GSD not only loves to go to training but now acts as if Lane is part of the family. My GSD is calmer and now looks for me to command him. We are not perfect by any means (its only been 4 weeks) but I truly believe with Carters k9s my GSD will be perfect and a dog that my grandfather would adore. Ask about the tree stump!
