Darius had my 13 week GSD puppy for 8 days and he came back house trained and crate trained. He learned sit and down and how to walk on a leash properly. In 6 months, I’m sending my puppy back to Darius for me training.

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!

Jan is a truly gifted trainer. My dog was abused as a puppy and he had difficulty being around anyone but family, refused to go for walks away from home and hated getting out of the car. Jan has helped me introduce positive reinforcement techniques to train my dog to see the world differently and gave me the confidence to work with my dog on several other problems we were having. She uses several techniques, including training the owner to react appropriately to the dog's behavior, obedience training to work on regularly with the dog as well as good tips to build a stronger bond with my dog so we can enjoy each others company and the company of newcomers in a safe manner. Having Jan as my trainer has been a great experience and I highly recommend her! She is devoted to helping my dog and I build a happy and safe home environment. With a persistent, positive outlook that any dog can be trained with a little love and some yummy treats, Jan has changed my dog's life and mine.

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.

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.

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.

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 highly recommend I Care Homesitting to anyone looking for in-home pet-sitting services. I have a highly-sensitive dog along with a cat, and I travel regularly, so Teresa has been a lifesaver. She’s excellent with the animals and is both highly responsive and highly reliable- two critical traits when trusting people with our homes and our favorite creatures. It’s a huge relief to me to know that all are in good hands when I’m gone. All of us around here give Teresa and I Care Homesitting a big Two Thumbs Up!!
