Ann Lewis, of Pups to Pooches, is one of the best dog trainers I've ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable about breed temperaments and what motivates individual animals. She is a great person to work with, especially if you have kids and a new dog or puppy because she will work with the entire family and teach kids how to interact with your new pup so there are no conflicts. I can't recommend Pups to Pooches highly enough. I plan to continue doing routine maintenance work to keep my dog challenged.

The Experience of Darius' Dogs was Great!!! He explained all directions fluently, and he also showed full control over my German Shepherd without proper dog training equipment. My dog listened to Mr. Darius on command within only 5 minutes of him being there. Mr. Darius obviously knows what he's doing and takes pride in his work as a professional dog trainer, he even went so far as to give me nutrition tips for my German Shepherd. I recommend Darius' Dog's to any dog owner that is looking for good quality professional help in training your dog.

I brought my 3 year old rescue dog, Jazzy, for training with Yvonne at Puppy Tubs. I have been pleased with Jazzy's progress thanks to Yvonne. I really needed training too, in order to be consistent and make my wishes clear to Jazzy. Yvonne was terrific and patient in teaching me so much to get Jazzy to obey and enjoy doing what I wanted. Yvonne's calm, up-beat and encouraging personality has made the process pleasurable for Jazzy and me. I will continue to work with Yvonne.

Our family recently worked with Sonja to help us teach our new rescue dog (1.5 years old) some manners. He is the most friendliest dog but would jump on people, play bite things and people, and was extremely hard to take for walks. We have learned so much with Sonja's help and encouragement. Sonja knows her stuff, she is upfront, reliable and always makes herself available for questions. No doubt that Sonja is one of the Best dog trainers around. The whole experience was worth every single penny. Now when friends come over to our home, we hear comments like, "Oh! Your dog is so well behaved." Even during a dinner party, he stayed in his "place" when told to do so. We are so proud of our rescue's accomplishments. He is the best dog ever and thanks to Sonja, everyone can see that when they come into our home or when we are out for a walk.

Very professional and sent updates on the training with videos every couple of days. It was great to see the progress and the updates let us know that our dog was being well taken care of. They are a little slow to respond to their main phone line, but very quick with emails. That is really the only negative I can think of. Greg is a great trainer and I would recommend him and Off the Leash to all of my friends.

I highly recommend using Francis for help with training your dog. He was knowledgable, patient, and great with my dog. We had 6 classes with him and he got my stubborn dog to do things I never thought she could do!!! I am so happy with the results. I have worked with many dog trainers in the past and he is one of my favorite!!!

I highly recommend Terri to anyone who is considering dog obedience and training. She is hands down one of the best dog trainers around. I would encourage anyone who has a puppy (or even an older dog) to consider Terri's Training for Dogs and People.

Jan is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. I took Kara to Jan as a 5 month old puppy and it was either train the dog or get rid of it. Within one week the puppy was a different dog. I don't know what I would have done with out Jan's expertise in training. She was worth every penny and more.. Kara and I still visit Jan and we have become good friends. My Advise is GIVE HER A TRY!!!!

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.

Chris did an amazing job with my dog JJ! He was very professional and understanding. My dog will stay on place now while we eat dinner, and he no longer tries to beg. He and my other dog are getting along now, too. Thank you so much, Chris!

Amazing people to work with. In 2 weeks they got my unruly, unmanageable, one-year-old German Shepherd to be a perfect gentleman! Can't believe this is actually my dog. My only regret is not doing this sooner!!!

Awesome!!! It's very simple. Doron may be one of the best trainers I've come across. He doesn't only have great patience when it comes to training your puppy, he is also very thorough when it comes to informing you of the techniques and reasoning behind them. Will definitely suggest using his services or even just talking to him and getting a better understanding of your puppy.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
