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!).

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 !!! 🤗🤗

Carolyn was able to quickly identify that our dog was anxious, not aggressive and gave easy to follow techniques to help improve his overall behavior. In two short weeks, we've noticed a huge improvement in his behavior and he actually loves our nightly training sessions!

Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.

We really love the in home setting used for training. Everything is done in a trainers home and the dogs are supervised 24hours a day. The trainers, and employees of Your Best Friends Dog House are great. They are very attentive to the human clients needs as well as the dogs and other animals. We were introduced to YBFDH about 3 years ago, we had an 8 year old Irish wolf hound and he was starting to act iffy. He would growl at the kids and was beginning to become aggressive to strangers. Our neighbor had used YBFDH for dog walking, and pet sitting so they mentioned to me they also offer dog training. We sent our old boy to learn some new things, and he came back without any of the negative behaviors he had previously shown. We now have a 1 year old Great Dane and he did his puppy and basic training at YBFDH. They do a great job!

First off, Christy is amazing! She is very professional and cares about dogs deeply. I contacted Christy because I have a 46 pound Pitbull named Layla who is very reactive/aggressive towards other dogs and was seeking training/behavior classes. What Christy found was and reassured me of, was that Layla was not aggressive at all and that as a dog, she did not want to be. Rather, Christy said that she was very insecure of herself and I found that to be very true!! During session 2, Christy brought along her dog Mazzei and after only 3 sessions, Layla was able to co-exist with her PEACEFULLY!! It is truly amazing and I would have never been able to imagine that Layla would be able to be around another dog. Added bonus: Christy massages Layla when she is in distress which teaches her to calm down and it has been a huge help! Christy gives my boyfriend and I expert direction on how to properly train Layla as well as weekly "homework" assignments. Although we are still continuing training with Christy and onto our fourth week, we have found her to be a huge help and couldn't imagine the way Layla is now without her. I HIGHLY recommend Christy for training, behavior modification, and canine massage for your furbabies. You will not regret it!! If I could, I would rate her 10 stars! Do yourself a favor and hire Christy...like NOW! :)

I am very happy with Belinda and my dog Mollie loves her. After having one dog walking company for 11 years it was time for a change. I found Belinda through Thumbtack and could not be happier!.

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!
