We started Pups to Pooches when our pup was about 12 weeks old, and went through (2) 6-week sessions of training. The training was easy to learn for both our dog and us, and Ann provided lots of feedback to make sure we were giving the proper cues. We received follow-up information via email to help reinforce all that was learned. Ann was in tune to the pups, and helped determine any issues that might arise and the best course of training based on the pups' personalities. Ann gives lots of personalized attention. This was by far the best dog training I've experienced with any of my dogs.

Jan was amazing!!!! She helped us with our 6 month old terrier Hershey. This is our first dog so the first few months have been trying for us but Jan swooped in and stripped away our notions of dog training and used positive reinforcement to get us on track. Please use Jan if you're looking for a trainer. You won't be disappointed. We thank you for your help! :)

Kate is a great choice for dog training and behavior. She is very personable, easy to talk to, listens well to your situation and makes recommendations. I noticed immediate behavior improvement with my pit bull mix. By changing his routine and following Kate's suggestions we are well on our way to a better behaved, happy, less stressed relationship. I'm addition, Kate educates you on dog behavior and gives great insight into their world, this is invaluable information for pet owners.

She is very nice and good to the dog. My dog gets better in some part. We learn some games and how to train. I think the dog really likes it too.

I've only had my first lesson and I am already seeing significant results. My male German Shepherd was very hard to handle even with a gentle leader. He would bark and lunge aggressively at other dogs and people while on our walks and would continuously bark at neighborhood walkers from my window. They explain everything and are very informative and know what they are doing. I've felt like I've been walking on thin ice because my dog has gotten in trouble with animal control with his aggression. Now I have the confidence to take him on walks and to public places. I don't even use the gentle leader now because the e-collar has him under control. I'm feeling very optimistic and look forward to the rest of my classes.

Damon Clemons I'd the most professional, caring and best dog trainer I have met. He does his job very well. He not only trains the dogs but the owners too. He makes sure that the owners are stable and balance as well as the dog he is training. He really focuses on the dogs needs. He doesn't do just one method with every dog, he works with the dog and then decides what will work best for that dog. If I ever needed another dog trained I would only bring them to Iron Will Dog Training. He is the best of the best!

Lauren is a consummate professional and has an extraordinary talent working with dogs. I've taken several classes, puppyhood and beyond manners, with Lauren. The force free techniques used in theses two classes really worked well with my dog, and even 2 years later she has sustained the good behaviors taught by Lauren!

I’ve had several dogs before of all different breeds but the experience I’ve had with ADZ K9s has been just amazing!! The quality of their kennels to their work ethics and professionalism of how they operate their business, I’m just lost for words!! And now let’s talk about TANK!! He has been the most amazing dog I’ve ever had. The quality of the blood line shows!! The training that he received from ADZ K9s has put him on a different level. His obedience in an off leash dog park environment has not only me but other dog owners just mind boggled!! His protection work is no joke either!! But over all that I’m just absolutely amazed how gentle and playful he is with the kids!! This experience with ADZ has been so memorable and the relationship me and Tank have is just so beautiful!! I’m just honored to have an ADZ dog and can’t wait to continue working with them!!!

Mylinda of Bark & Laugh Dog Training is TERIFFIC. I have two dogs that have taken classes and thanks to her guidance, have become the most well behaved dogs. They took Puppy, Intermediate, and Canine Good Citizen classes. We are currently enrolled in her Out and About classes. She is a wealth of knowledge and has even helped us overcome a Separation Anxiety issue in one of our dogs. They love these classes too – when we ask them if they would like to go see Mylinda, and run to the door and can’t wait to get into the car! I would highly recommend Mylinda of Bark & Laugh Training.

I do teach puppies and older dogs not to jump unless commanded by their owners. I do use dog treats to keep the dog's attention span. I don't spray dogs with water because that will turn them to being aggressive. I am very patient with the animals.

About

I'm helping people and dogs respond to each other. I'm teaching not only commands but also helping the dog owner how to better the animals response to the command. You need to be patient for it is the virtue. You need to have an obedient and loving dog!

I bring animals into my home after an initial in-home evaluation for 8-12 weeks and crate training. I teach them polite house behavior (no chewing, digging, or pottying inside); they will also be taught basic cues including sit, down, paw, stay and come.
