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.

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.

Ericka is everything we were looking for in a trainer for our two little buddies and needless to say my husband and me. She had the boys sitting in less than five minutes from when she walked in the door. She had us trained to have them sit in less than ten minutes from her arrival. Ericka's training techniques are based on positive reinforcement . We recognized her genuine love for animals from our first phone interview. The boys loved her the very first time they laid eyes on her...or maybe it was her bag of treats she keeps around her hip 😉. We have just completed our fourth session and are absolutely amazed at our progression. Looking forward to our future sessions and seeing how smart our boys are. Danny and Shelia Adams

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.

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! :)

Chris was fantastic! My little husky was pulling and pulling on the leash so much it was impossible to take her anywhere. In a few short sessions he had her walking in a nice loose leash heel. Turns out the harness was encouraging my little husky pull more and more! I tell you what, I will be coming to Expert K9 Academy any time I need help getting my pups to listen! Thank you so much!!!!

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.

Within minutes of putting up my request on Thumbtack, Dawn responded with what ended up to be an amazing offer for training. I just received my dog back yesterday, and I can already see the results. She did a wonderful job and worked with him on everything I asked, and as of now, everything I have seen has been a success. She sends periodic updates while your dog is away just like she promises, and makes it much easier to leave your furry friends for the allotted time. Dawn went above and beyond in helping my dog and myself, and the training has transferred excellently. I would highly recommend this service to anyone trying to take the obedience of their dog to the next level with the amazing Off Leash training.

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.

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.

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.

Chelsea is an excellent trainer. She is reasonably priced and produces amazing results. She treats all of her client's dogs like her own. She is passionate and extreamly knowledgable. I reccomend Chelsea to everyone who is looking for a trainer. Most all other places charge outrageous prices and don't get the results you desire. Chelsea works with you so that you learn how to continue your dogs training after she leaves. She gives details notes about the sessions so that you have all the details in case you forget what she showed you. She answers any question I have and gives genuine advice everytime I reach out to her after our training sessions. She is one of a kind and I am truly blessed to have met her. My boys' lives would not be the same without her.

Damon Clemons I'd the most professional, caring and best dog trainer I have met. He does his job very well. He not only trains the dogs but the owners too. He makes sure that the owners are stable and balance as well as the dog he is training. He really focuses on the dogs needs. He doesn't do just one method with every dog, he works with the dog and then decides what will work best for that dog. If I ever needed another dog trained I would only bring them to Iron Will Dog Training. He is the best of the best!

Ms Cravens is an awesome tutor! She worked very closely with my brother and his teacher. She doesn’t judge or make the student feel bad for not for not understanding the material. She makes them feel like getting help isn’t a bad thing! Highly recommended!

If you have questions, she is available to answer them for you. She not only cares for your dog but cares for both you and your dog.
