Darius did a fantastic with my puppy and “retraining” his confidence. He kept in constant contact with me and has made several home visits to reinforce the strides my dog has made.

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.

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.

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!

My family has been having behavioral issue with my adult dog and new puppy. They are both good sized dog and have extremely high engery which is not good in a house of 7. The dogs love to wrestle outdoors but we're bringing it indoors, not to mention the puppy loves to run off. We where really worried the dogs where getting more and more out of control and bringing them in with my hip issues and my grandmother's blindness was impossible. Dawn was absolutely amazing and reasonable with not only her suggestions but also with her pricing. I loved that her training did not required an abunance of overpriced toys, tools and treats. In fact we learned to reward the dogs without food treats which was a very new method for us. She gave my family and I an understanding on dominance traits and pack alpha dynamics. My 9 yr old can walk to both dogs without being dragged down and I can walk up and dog the stairs without fearing tripping over hyperactive doggys. I am looking forward to working with Dawn again to get even more obedience tips.

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.

Kate is a great choice for dog training and behavior. She is very personable, easy to talk to, listens well to your situation and makes recommendations. I noticed immediate behavior improvement with my pit bull mix. By changing his routine and following Kate's suggestions we are well on our way to a better behaved, happy, less stressed relationship. I'm addition, Kate educates you on dog behavior and gives great insight into their world, this is invaluable information for pet owners.

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.

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!!

I've only had my first lesson and I am already seeing significant results. My male German Shepherd was very hard to handle even with a gentle leader. He would bark and lunge aggressively at other dogs and people while on our walks and would continuously bark at neighborhood walkers from my window. They explain everything and are very informative and know what they are doing. I've felt like I've been walking on thin ice because my dog has gotten in trouble with animal control with his aggression. Now I have the confidence to take him on walks and to public places. I don't even use the gentle leader now because the e-collar has him under control. I'm feeling very optimistic and look forward to the rest of my classes.

I'll walk up to four dogs at a time no later than 5 p.m. Weekdays or weekends are fine. I'd be glad to walk any-size dogs also.

Animals of any age -- in particular, dogs, cats, horses and even chickens for eggs -- are my heart. I do not think that, as a whole, humans give animals enough credit for their value in our lives. I want animals to have the most love, fun, interaction, care and the healthiest environment possible. It has been said about children, "It takes a village to raise a child....", yet, maybe it should also be a village to love and support these precious animals that have so much to offer us!
