I took my German Shepard to her first training with Darius and I can see a major difference in one day . He is very professional and have a profound love for dogs. I highly recommend him and I can't wait to see how well my Shepard advance
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.
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!
Sonja brought out the best in my Doberman Jasmine. Jasmine is a very active dog full of engery and even jumpy at times and with the training I had from Sonja Jasmine is maturing into a well behavied girl. I would recomend Sonja to all my friends. There is no doubt that Sonja is much more than a 5 gold star trainer. Sonja'a passionate about what she does and that made me feel comfortable with all she taught me. Yes I have referred to the training being directed to me because the dog learns from what I learned and pratice daily. Thank you Sonja and keep up the good work Karen and Jasmine from Buford, Ga
My puppy is trained. It seems that I am the one who really needed the training all along. She knows her stuff and is super easy to work with. Helps you throw away the embarrassment as far as feeling like a failure in training my dog. We Will be back!
Off Leash K9 Training, Atlanta is a fantastic business that's operated by some great people that clearly love doing what they do! If you want your dog to be flawless in obedience and have freedom to go outside, off leash, then they are the obvious choice!
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.
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.
Canine and Company did great at training my dog in obedience and helping his anxiety. I look forward to training more together in the future.

Hired michael a while back to help me and my dog Loki he did an amazing job and now I'm able to have Loki in my store with me
I bring animals into my home after an initial in-home evaluation for 8-12 weeks and crate training. I teach them polite house behavior (no chewing, digging, or pottying inside); they will also be taught basic cues including sit, down, paw, stay and come.
Pit bulls are a very intelligent breed of dog and must be trained with kindness and understanding. They're also very energetic and must be shown a great deal of patients when working with them. Never give up on your pit bull, sometimes it's easier to teach them after they lose some of their puppy energy!
I'm helping people and dogs respond to each other. I'm teaching not only commands but also helping the dog owner how to better the animals response to the command. You need to be patient for it is the virtue. You need to have an obedient and loving dog!
