My name is Diane and I felt a very must to write this review on my experience with Darius, the dog trainer. His work was above and beyond for my dog named Bishop (Toy poodle). Trainer Darius does not just train Bishop but often check after his training to see how Bishop was doing. Darius has such a special ability when it comes to dogs. Darius' Dogs is the right company to accomplish traing with dogs. Darius has the love of dogs and patience that changed my dog behavior. I was amazed and can't recommenf Dauris' Dogs enough. He brought Bishop and me closer together.

Our dog Marco stayed at Oh Good Dog for a two week stay and train. During his stay, Francis provided regular updates and photos to keep us updated on Marco's progress. Since Marco has been back home, we have noticed a positive difference in his behavior. He is following more commands, playing with his toys by himself, and is generally more calm. Several friends and family members have commented on how much his behavior has improved after his time with Oh Good Dog. Marco received a great foundational training and we hope to continue his training as he gets older.

I brought my 10 month old Chorkie in for training . She was aggressive with other dogs and people outside of the family. Yvonne created a course for us and gave me guidelines and advice for changing our behavior to help us be a better unit. We have to grow, learn and change together . After 3 weeks Fawn was able to enter a group class and we were able to flourish there. After completing the group training Fawn can be around other dogs, other people, and follow basic commands. She just passed her AKC Star Puppy certification and I am so proud of how far we've come. Thank you so much Yvonne for all of your help, we wouldn't be here without you!

No dog behaviors change overnight, but Ann gave us a great plan of action and we have already seen some improvement and less anxiety in our rescue pup.

Cris helped me with general obedience that my dog seriously lacked. With just s few sessions he had completely stopped all jumping behavior as well as giving us some general obedience training and a place command, which my girl absolutely loves! Thanks Cris for all the help! Azzura and I are very greatful!

Our dog was pulling on the leash and showing aggression towards other dogs when we would go for walks. We hired Keith for obedience lessons and the results were amazing in a very short period of time. Walking our dog is now a pleasant experience not only for us but for the neighbors as well with absolutely no worries that we will have any incidents when another dog crosses our path. We have Keith come out once a month now for private lessons. He observes our interaction with our animal and offers any and all suggestions to maintain harmony. He truly cares for the animals wellbeing. We would highly recommend Keith.

I have two 4-year-old dachshunds that I tried to train by myself by kenneling one while working with the other. This got me nowhere fast because the distractions of the other made it impossible. I needed help and did my research on Off Leash and was really sold when I saw the puppy poodle. The before and after was amazing. When I dropped Madison off, she was a leash puller, sniffer of all things, distracted by everything, didn’t understand sit or down, much less stay in one place on command. I just got her back from her 2-week board and training. I couldn’t believe how obedient she was when I went to pick her up. She could come, sit, down, place, heel, loose leash, and knew to stay until she was told to break after each command. She could block out distractions and I was astounded by the transformation. Yet, they do not just let you take them home without your own human training session. The trainer, Terry, sat down with me and took me through how to work the collar and trained me. We spent 2 hours walking with Madison and going through the commands. He corrected my behavior that could be confusing for her so when I bring her home I will know exactly what to do. He would have stayed longer if need be. They are also there for reach back if I ever need help and I will definitely utilize the refresher if not for my babies but for me. Also, she absolutely loves Terry and he loved her. This is a key factor that makes me happier than anything, she went to this tough training and loved her trainer, which makes me sure that she loved every moment she was there. Last but definitely not least they sent update pictures and videos. They know this is a hard process for both the puppy and their human and made it so much easier. I cannot say enough about how amazing the trainers and staff are at OffLeash Training Atlanta. This training has not just changed my baby’s life but mine as well.

Linda always does an excellent job with my two cats. She loves animals, so I never worry that they are not receiving excellent care while I am on vacation. I know she will show up and make sure they are fed in a timely manner, which is not always the case with some sitters. I highly recommend her.

I really enjoyed the personalized approach taken with this company. They really got to know my dog and made sure the recommendations and training were something that I could continue to work on in between sessions. It was the first place I've worked with where I felt like the goal was to improve my dogs behavior and nothing else. They really cared and made sure I was comfortable with executing the training recommendations myself before leaving. I learned how to read Cole's reactions and when breaks were helpful since training stressed him out a little at the beginning. I feel like I really understand how to read Cole now and really get to the root of his issues. Thank you!!

We had an wonderful experience with Lisa. She was very helpful with controlling the temperament of my puppy, his behavior has completely turned around. I purchased the four session package. Very fair price. Not only did my puppy learn a lot from her, so did I... I left with plenty of tools to implement in our daily life. Our household has been running much smoother since she came into our lives. I would absolutely recommend her to others, her service was outstanding!!

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!

Emily took the time to not only train my dog, but train me and explain to me why my dog was behaving the way she was. My dog would always begin barking right when I would start a conversation with a friend. She demonstrated first hand ways to respond when my dog was barking in order to stop the barking while positively praising my animal. She is a professional, clearly educated on animal behavior. I would definitely recommend anyone to leave their animals in her care!
