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.
Love, love the off leash training. We can take our dog Dusty with us just about anywhere and know that he will be a well mannered dog. He did a lot of leash pulling, jumping on people and invading other dog’s spaces before. Now we have none of that! Thanks so much!
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.
She has been quick to respond and quick to help formulate a plan for the training of my dog I am already very pleased
Christina is amazing! She really knows her stuff, is willing to answer any and all questions, and really takes her time training you and your dog. I highly recommend her.
Shanna has been great not only working with Rayne, but training us too. She has made such a difference in helping us with a great relationship with our Rayne. Thanks Shanna.
Lee's help in training our dog was nothing less than superb. He is kind yet firm and was very attentive to our special circumstances. We will work with him in the future!
Trustworthy(very important when choosing a dog sitter), Reliable(never has turned down a date I've needed her!), and keeps it professional! My dog loves her! Highly recommend Sarah!
Professional Trainer, after neighbors witnessed the training with my American Pit Bull Terrier, they signed up for classes for their dog that had leash anxiety, and pulling on lease issues. Within a few classes the dog's behavior is now amazing. Wish I would have taken classes years ago.
Teresa was very professional and gave me comfort in knowing my dog will be in excellent hands. She is very responsive to any communication and her professionalism stood out from our initial introduction. She is very experienced at what she does and a treasure to work with.
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.
What an awesome experience, Erica was super attentive, took amazing care of our fur baby with daily updates and photos and taught her so much! I HIGHLY recommend Erica, your dog gets one on one attention as well as socialization with other dogs. She took Rellie everywhere with her, multiple dog parks, lunch outings, everywhere. Such a happy puppy! Another big thing, when we went to pick her up she showed us a scratch on Rellies ear and said she confessed she wasn't sure where it came from but had been watching it and taking care of it, in reality it had happened to Rellie on our watch (an evil cat) the day before we dropped her off! Not her fault at all! Her honesty and attention to detail and our pups well being made a huge impression and I will only be using Erica from this point forward.
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!
Andrea did an excellent job of grooming my miniature poodle. It shows that she loves dogs, and my Lexi showed no signs of stress after I picked her up. Andrea is very professional (and very pretty).

*currently in relocation mode & unable to respond to new job inquiries. * grew up with dogs as a child. We had 6 hunting beagles and 1 german shepherd. I personally have owned 9 boxer dogs in the last 40 years; always 2 at a time. Although, I did seek out to become a dog trainer by profession at one time, I have had no formal training. The K-9 Academy in Los Angeles had met my previous boxers and asked me, "Who taught you to train your dogs?" I asked "Why?" K-9 replied, "Because boxers are one of the most difficult dogs to train; because they are so intelligent and get so distracted." I replied, "I didn't know that. I trained them myself." I have a super love for dogs. My dogs have never been hit, never been yelled at; and never bribed with treats. Dogs respond to love and leadership. They get confused if they don't understand us - but if they do, they just want to please us. Remember the movie "Horse Whisper"? That is a gift. I believe God gave me a gift to understand dogs and they to understand me. My dogs have been Pet Therapy dogs - the Hospital Staff loved my Clyde so much that they said, "Take him off leash & let him walk around." (in Chronic Care Ward in the hospital) My boxers have also been on the front page of newspapers in Pet Walk-a-Thons.
