I hired Francis from Oh Good Dog Professional Dog Training to acclimate my two miniature schnauzer puppies. My goal was to have two well-adjusted household members and Francis far exceeded my expectations. He was gentle with both us (the pet parents) and the dogs, gave up practical guidance on how to train them, and left us with plans for continued training now that our 6 week sessions are concluded. I cannot recommend him highly enough and plan to reengage in the fall once our puppies have become a bit more seasoned.

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.

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.

Layla did such a good job with our dog Sadie. Even better is that we can always bring her back if we run into problems.

Yvonne, the trainer, was very good and patient with all the dogs. Each dog brought its own set of issues and she was able to deal with all the problems as presented. She has her own dog in the class which was a shining example of the utmost obedience training. I would recommend the training at puppy tubs. Bring the puppy early (i.e. 8 weeks of age) and often (don't stop after the very basic class session) so you can get an awesome companion animal

I received a quick response to my inquiry for 2-week board and train for my 6-month doberman from Dawn. I was specifically interested in getting my dog to an "off leash" status and Dawn assured me she could accomplish it with the dogtra arc remote. The 2 week board included 3 on-site training sessions with my dog and I was amazed at the results at just 2 weeks. Dawn and Karisha provided me with some very valuable advise and simple training methods to get my dog to positively respond to my requests. I have him home now and he is my PERFECT walking companion. It's also very reassuring to know that when I travel, I will board my dog in familar surroundings and he will know his care givers and his training will continue. Thank you Dawn and Karisha!

Individual dog training. Specifically, for jumping on house guests, leash pulling, and minor behavior issues. Shaun was responsive and helpful. He addressed all of our issues in turn and really helped us get our dog on the right track. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with pet behavior problems, big or small. He knew how to approach them all. Thanks Shaun!!!

Jay has been punctual and straight forward from the first day he met with our dog and us. I really value his professionalism and reminder texts confirming appointments and true partnership with my family to solve my dog's issues. I find his flexibility to not stick to a formulaic plan, but opt for the best training route for my dog as we see what she needs, the most impressive factor. So far so good and I look forward to seeing all of the growth.

I cannot say enough about Sonja McBerry with Dog Training in your Home. The lessons she provides are so personalized and because they take place in your own home the training covers exactly what you need where you need it. Sonja did a great job teaching me how to work with and train my dog so she would be well behaved. Even after the private training stops the group lessons continue to benefit your dog. it is so nice to have someone you can rely on and turn to when you/your dog needs a refresher or you just have a question.

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!

I was at my wits end with my dog. As heartbreaking as it was, I was at the point that I was going to have to re-home my precious pup. My dog was jumping on people, running out the front door at any chance she could get, barking, not coming when called, pulling me all over the place on the leash, chasing cars and other dogs. It was a living nightmare. Thank God I found Jennifer at A Divine Dog Training Academy! She saved my sanity and my dog. Jennifer is a true miracle worker. Not only did she train my dog, she trained me as well. Her training method was fun for me and my dog. My dogs behavior problems were fixed very quickly as well. I could not believe how fast my dogs behavior changed for the better even after just one training session. If you are at the point of giving up on your dog, please don't.....just call Jennifer.
