Ben was very helpful with training our new dog. We were at our breaking point and about to give up and we looked up a trainer and he has helped so much. Our dog was going crazy and we couldn't figure out how to stop him from dominating the house. Ben was able to give our dog the training he needed and give us tips on how to correct our dog.

We met with Casey yesterday and set up training for our dog and are looking very forward to starting this process with Casey and his staff. We were very impressed with their philosophy of training not only the pet but the owners. Can't wait to get started!

I am SO happy I chose Matty B’s Dog Training. I have an 80 lb German Shepherd who didn’t do well on leash and was terrible around other dogs. It would be close to impossible to control him if there was another dog around. I would avoid taking him on walks in fear of seeing another dog. I knew this wasn’t the life I wanted for my dog so I finally decided to get help. I chose the 15 day bootcamp- I was terrified to send my dog away for that long but I am so happy I did. I was regularly updated and sent pictures which was great. You can tell Matt really cares about the dogs he works with. When we picked our boy up, Matt gave us a lesson about everything he had learned the last 2 weeks. We were amazed! Walks are now enjoyable- he is a completely different dog on leash. We now have the confidence of taking our dog in public. We just finished our 2 week followup where Matt came to our house to check on our progress. I highly recommend Matty B’s Dog Training, and plan to utilize his services again in the future.

Iris looked after our 3 dogs for 2 weeks while we were on vacation. She did a great job. She was very professional: gave us timely updates, and kept the house very clean. We would happily use her services again, and I would recommend her to others.

Casey and Shelly have made a tremendous impact on training our Jack Russell Terrier(5)and Australian Shepherd mix(4). In preparation for our move to Switzerland we knew we had a lot of work to do. Casey and Shelly worked with us one on one and helped to train our dogs on and off the leash. People are amazed at how well behaved our dogs are and how well they listen to us. Once important thing I learned from Casey and Shelly is it's not all about training your dog it's also about training you. Put forth the effort and have fun with the training and it will come back to you ten fold. We have two well-behaved and happy companions for life. Thanks Casey and Shelly!

We hired Scott to walk our two Australian Shepherds while Herman was still a young puppy. His service and attention to detail was outstanding. I felt that my pups were in good hands and it was nice to know that they were getting exercise during the day while I was at work.

Carlisa went above and beyond to take care of my three dogs while I was away on vacation. She took them to the wash and cleaned them up after they played in the mud. She was able to get them to take their meds without any problem. My dogs love it when I mention her name, they begin to jump and run to the door waiting for her to get there! I would recommend her to ANYONE!
