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!!

Andy was excellent and our family really liked onsite one on one training with our dog. We are on our way to a well behaved dog. :) Looking forward to joing the group lessons soon. Highly recommend Andy's help to anyone struggling with doggy behavioural issues.

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.

Alison did a wonderful job taking care of our dog and cat. Not only was she attentive and detailed, Allison also sent us near-daily updates while we were away. It was great hearing from her, and helped us feel at ease while we were away. We would recommend Allison to anyone looking for a housesitter.

Julie has been a blessing for my wife and I. We met her and immediately liked her. She has proven to be reliable, trustworthy and most important....great with our 2 dogs Teddy and Buffy. Julie spends time with them, walks and pets them. We trust her so much that we gave her the alarm code and entrance to our house. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone wanting a dog sitter/walker. Ian & Melissa, Bradenton, Fl.

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!

Martee always goes above and beyond when she cares for our 3 pups. They love her so much and we have total peace of mind when we're gone. It's wonderful to have her not only watch the dogs but also housesit. We plan trips every 2-3 months and Martee is always on time, handles emergencies with ease, communicates often with us while we're gone. We always come home to a spotless home and happy pups. She's the best!!

I hired Christine to help with my sons two year old German Shepherd Odin. Odin is a great dog but had become very hard to walk due to his constant pulling and barking. Christine helped me learn new ways to train Odin and they worked right from the very beginning. Odin wanted to learn it was just me not knowing the right ways to get started. Chirstine was always right on time, and her enthusiasm and energy were contagious for both Odin and I. My son is now continuing to work with Christine and we look forward to bringing Odin to a group walk soon.

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.

We have been using K-9 Coach for about 7 years. We had a new puppy after the death of one of our two dogs. The puppy was being very badly treated by the remaining dog and uncontrollable, probably in mourning. We used the K-9 Coach, Mike and got great results. We now have two very well trained dogs that are now therapy dogs at Hospice. We keep going to classes for socialism for our two dogs and on Saturday morning they sit at the door about 1/2 hour prior to our departure as they are so anxious to go to social class.cc

I hired Quinn to work with my Boston Terrier mix (Lulu) who was a nightmare on a leash. She constantly pulled and had leash aggression issues. I purchased a package of personal training sessions and have been extremely happy with the results. The training was for me, as much as it was for Lulu. Quinn was really flexible and super easy to work with. Our training sessions started at home but we soon branched out to places like Petco and eventually downtown Dunedin. Lulu has come a long way since her first training session. She now knows several commands and walks nicely beside me on her leash. We are still working to improve her confidence when meeting new dogs on a leash but I continue to see improvement with each new outing. If you have a pup in need of manners, I highly recommend Quinn.

Lane Carter Dog Trainer

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!
