As a fellow dog trainer, training up to 18 dogs a day plus group and private lessons. Francis is great at what he does with mans best friend. Through his experience of vetinary school, grooming and all different sports and obedience. Francis has a diverse background where he can pull from different experiences. Not every dog learns the same way as not every person learns the same way. He helps the dog learn in a fun active way. Making the dog want to train. He passes this knowledge off to owners and takes the time with them to understand their furry companion and what they need to do to fill its wants and needs. Thus, creating the perfect bond between man and dog.

Kristie is phenomenal at training. She has turned our Destiny into a whole new Puppy. Her training skills and methodology work great and I couldn't be happier with the results. We still have a bit of a way to go with Destiny but the skills and knowledge Kristie has provided us are sure to help in the future. Highly recommend Kristie for any training needs. Now we look forward to her training Destiny to become a frisbee champion. Thank you Kristie. Destiny couldn't have asked for a better trainer.

We absolutely love Dawn and Karisha. Dawn worked with our rescue beagle who we would not have been able to keep without her expert training. Abby had a few crate issues when she came home and Dawn came to the rescue immediately and took her back for additional behavior training. We’ve been happy to keep our visits to Off Leash boarding for both of our girls who are so excited when they get picked up. We feel good knowing they are being pampered when we are out of town. I highly recommend Off Leash for training and boarding.

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.

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! :)

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.

We did a 6 week obedience training with Cris and are so pleased with the progress we've seen in our 11 month old Blue Heeler! Cris catered each lesson to Aussie's progress and our specific concerns, and we came away with a lot of great tools to help us with the specific issues we've been having. Specifically, Aussie was uncontrollable on the leash when other dogs were around. Now 6 weeks later, we know how to regain Aussie's attention and keep him focused on us. We are MUCH more comfortable going out for walks because of it! As a plus, Cris is super flexible when scheduling trainings and meets you for your convenience! We definitely plan to call back Expert K9 Academy for more advanced courses in the future!

At the point we took our doberman to Off-Leash K9 Training, she was unmanageable on a leash. After only ONE session at with Bryan at Off-Leash K9 Training (OLK9T), she stopped chasing/barking/lunging at joggers, bikes and motorcycles. She has since completed the basic course and 2 advanced classes and I am thrilled with how well she is behaving OFF LEASH. Can't say enough good things about Bryan and his team at OLK9

Sonja worked with our Husky, Zeke, for only a few months four years ago when he was a puppy. I've had a lot of dogs in my lifetime but this was the first time I hired a trainer. I thought I had always done alright training my own dogs but WOW was I wrong! Really, Sonja was training *me* more than my dog. Zeke is such a remarkably well-behaved dog. I added another puppy to my family last year and brought Sonja back to work with him. His personality is the complete opposite of Zeke's, so Sonja takes a different approach with him. She is a very caring and very effective trainer, I highly recommend her.

Very knowledgeable about dogs and their training. Friendly lady who boards the dog inside with her family. My dog connected with her immediately. Training not totally complete yet; very pleased with our experience. Highly recommend this trainer.

We have 2 very large Dobe puppies and Off Leash K9 comes to the house for training. In only 2 lessons the girls have responded to training and are much more manageable for my wife and kids. Additionally, the trainer was able to provide some insight into the diet as we are switching to Raw and we can see the difference that the diet change has made. The trainer also has a real passion for what he is doing and its shown in the quality of work provided.

We were having issues with our American Bulldog “Bolt”. He was pulling on his leash and acting aggressive towards dogs and people. We called ADZ Kennels and spoke with Doron. He took the time to listen and and watch video’s of our dog. He saw the playful nature in Bolt when others were telling us he was aggressive. Doron impressed us with his knowledge of Bolt’s breed and we set up an appointment immediately. After one training session we saw major improvements with Bolt. Doron and his staff are kind and knowledgeable. We drive a little over an hour each week to train our pup with ADZ Kennels. I would recommend ADZ to anyone who wants a perfectly trained and well behaved dog.

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.

I recieved 4 quotes from Thumbtack, on dog trainning. I chose (Bad Dog Good Dog) w/Lisa Taratoot, initially because of $$, however after only having completing 2 of our secessions,my dog has had a tremendous turnaround, and I am completly confident in Lisa "knowledge" in pet training abilities! and I am looking foward to our continued training process! Call Lisa, you want be disappointed.

An incredibly professional young man. He was very attentive and informative. I like that we were able to customize our board and train commands to tailor mifsy’s obedience to our lifestyle. Great guy who knows his stuff and has taught my family so much. I loved the fact the he encourage and inspired me, my wife and two children to attend follow up demonstration training with mifsy and made sure each of us had commands and body language down. He’s a real down to earth guy and we are forever grateful.
