Great sessions. She arrived on time and very professional. Our dogs are excited when she comes for their sessions. They have had major improvements so far and we are looking forward to what is to come. She has been helping us with commands as well as dog on dog aggression. She has been able to assist us better than the others. She walks us through each session step by step which has made the process incredible.
Scott the Dog Guy is a true professional through and through. From the moment he met my dog, Leia, it was clear that he knew what he was doing. His assessments of Leia (and myself) began immediately. He thoroughly answered all of my questions, and gave me tons of advice on how to achieve a healthier, happier dog. We worked with Scott twice - once at home and once at the dog park. Leia had been developing aggression towards other dogs (and the occasional person). I was so worried that Scott was going to show up and tell me all was hopeless. He proceeded to provide me with the tools I need to help Leia. If you actually listen to everything he suggests, then your dog will behave better in no time. We noticed positive results the day after our session with Scott. If you choose to ignore some of his suggestions, then you can't expect your dogs behavior to reach the level you truly want. Again, Scott is knowledgable, professional, and an absolute joy to work with. Thank you so much, Scott!
Sherry is a wonderful dog trainer. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with her. Unfortunately due to some family issues we were forced to get rid of the dog. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Gina was excellent to work with. Not only is she good with our Dog, but probably as important: good with us (after all, Dog Training is more about teaching the owners to teach the dog, than teaching the dog!).
I have completed a full course of agility training with Pawfect Dog Training and the experience was incredible. My dog, Max, and I run together and travel a lot. Being able to tire him out was a challenge initially. The Pawfect trainers had me awestruck in the first session! We planned for 2 hours and Max was exhausted after just 22 minutes of games to work his mind. He's a border collie mix. After seeing that, I knew I had hired the right trainer! We learned the agility ladder, the tunnel, the agility sticks, the hoops, and so much more. Max is always so focused on me now and tuned into what we're doing. We were close before, but now, the bond we share thanks to Pawfect's Pawsitive training methods and teaching us so much about how Max sees the world will be forever strong! Thank you Pawfect!
Leslie is a very knowledgeable trainer. She is very outgoing has a good sense of best training method based on particular dog and it's personality. I have used trainers in past with other dogs and Leslie is by far the best trainer I have used. Leslie has turned my good dog to a great dog.
Leslie is an excellent dog trainer, patient, diligent, organized...a true professional who we would recommend to any dog owner looking for a trainer. Paul & Molly
Scott did a great job with house training/off leash training with my dog, Penny, and later bird training.
Michelle is an absolute wonderful trainer.........my 2 dogs have completely flipped 100% into completely different dogs.......when my 2 dogs first met Michelle they literally wanted to attack/ kill her .......we have been working with Michelle for 3 lessons. Both my dogs now can be approached by Michelle with no problems what so ever......they give kisses ....let her let them .....i can now walk both of them at the exact same time with no issues of pulling me......let me remind you my dogs are 80lbs and 105lbs ......so to be able to now walk both with out them pulling me is a miracle !!! We've had issues with our dog Hayzel being aggressive when it came to meeting new people and Michelle has been working with us to improve that and take it away completely......i am sooooooo Happy to have found Michelle to help me with both of our dogs !!!!! I don't know what I would do with out her ......probably be stressed out big time !!! She's amazing and she knows exactly what she's doing, so if you're looking for someone who is willing to help you please choose Michelle!!! She is our Miracle !!! 🤗🤗
Dee is amazing she is best dog trainer! My dog love her!
As a first time dog owner I have learned that the process to a well behaved dog is the training of both the dog AND the owners. Our rescue one year old Birder Collie/Australian Shepard mix was pretty well behaved indoors and in our yard but had a very aggressive issue when meeting new digs and people. He could not be trusted to not bite either. After one session with Lynn and homework he was 100% better. After the second session I have little fear of having a problem. Buddy still needs some work however the change has been dramatic. Lynn comes to your home with written plans and homework assignments. Hire Lynn, you will not be disappointed. Jeff Wadsworth
I made contact with 5 star canine to train my dog. Jason arrived at my house on time, explained his services and went to work immediately training my dog. My dog now listens to my commands. Unbelievable. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, expertise, and value. If you need your dog (s) trained, I would highly recommend contacting five star K9. I am glad I did .
Marcus and Chris were great with our Lab. We had signed her up for a 10 day board and learn training program, and we see a marked improvement in her while walking on the leash - she is more responsive to commands, and it's so much easier to stop her from pulling on the leash when there are other dogs around. The trainers are really nice, and it's obvious they love dogs and love what they do. Would highly recommend them to other dog owners!!!
Stephanie’s knowledge of my dogs aggressive behavior alone was so impressive that I immediately knew she was the right trainer to handle My dogs fear and aggression issues. I’d never heard of day training and couldn’t believe that My dogs aggression could be fixed in such a short time, but her knowledge was impressive. I’m both amazed and so grateful for the work she did with my dog. The only downside was that it was a pricier than some of the other companies I talked to, but totally worth the investment in the end! I would and have recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer!! Thank you Stephanie!
Jeanie Murray: Well, seven years ago Tom McMurchie worked with me and my 1-year old Labradoodle, Rush, in Phoenix AZ. I don't have adequate words to explain how wonderful the experience was. Tom was knowledgeable, professional, patient, humane, and just darn perfect. He trained me as well to make Rush an awesome, well-mannered family member. Then, Tom moved to Chicago. Rush is 8 years old (still perfect), but Tom has always been available for me to talk to him on the phone with dog-training advice. Then we brought a second Labradoodle into our home at 8 weeks old, Reagan. Do I ever wish Tom was still here to work with me and Reagan, who is a work in progress (almost 3 years old now). Actually, Tom did advise from afar when I had questions about Reagan. If you are looking for that perfect person to work with you and your dog, don't look any further than Tom McMurchie. Thanks, Tom!

I have spent a year looking for a good trainer for me and my dogs. I found one when I contacted the Dog Life Center. The trainer was excellent. Just what my dogs and I needed.
I’m looking forward to working with Sev’s Smarty Paws. Tracy was helpful and professional from her first contact with me. Our consultation showed me she is exactly what we are looking for in a trainer for our dogs.
Chris and Diane are excellent dog trainers. They are truly committed to helping an owner reach their dog training goals. I highly recommend using them for dog training services!
