I am delighted to write a review for Sherry from Love, Honor and Obey. I have a 9 month old- very large Great Dane. I was having trouble walking him (he knocked me down twice), he needed to learn commands, and I needed him to learn to obey. I found the price to be very reasonable- I was surprised at how affordable one-on-one training in my house was ( I was not confident enough to take my dog out to a group training as I didn't feel it was safe-he was too strong for me to control). First visit, Sherry requested that all family members were present and she asked each one of us what our training goals were (even the kids)-this was very helpful. I learned how to properly walk this dog at our first session, and by the end of the 2nd session, I could walk him confidently by myself. Sherry has a tremendous amount of experience in dog training and that is evident from the start. I am someone who has had dogs all my life, and I have learned so much- from nutrition to proper collars/harness, to appropriate toys. Sherry gave me a nice instruction manual with LOADS of good information. Sherry has made herself available by phone for any issues/questions that arise between training sessions. We have completed 4 lessons and I am amazed at how well we are all doing. It is nice to see Sherry in action, to see how well she can control a dog that is twice her size-using only positive reinforcement.

Chris did a great job helping me with my dog Miles. Miles is a much better walker after ongoing leash training and is now interested in walking next to me instead of way in front. I highly recommend using Chris for your dog training needs.

I could not say enough good things about working with Stephanie when it came to training my dog. I have a rambunctious bulldog who's a year and a half. Nothing but behavioral problems, nipping, chewing things, eating things, and not coming when called. She was always on time, patient with my dog and myself, and made me feel comfortable with having her take care of my pup. I would HIGHLY recommend having her train your dog. I was thoroughly impressed to say the least!! I fully intend on utilizing this training in the future with future dogs as well.

Diana was very open and communicative with us while our dog was in training. Rollo, our dog, has some anxiety issues and Dianna worked well with him getting him socialized with other dogs and calming his anxiety. I feel confident that if anyone works with her and follows her training, you will see a noticeable difference in your dog. I really like how Dianna keeps in contact after training, caring for Rollo as if he was her own. Thanks!

Leslie put me at ease the moment she walked through my front door! She is so easy to talk to about any issues concerning my dog and takes the time and care to personalize training to that dogs needs. Her training method allows for the puppy parent to both see Leslie herself do it and then for me to do it myself, since us humans needs training too! It's very crucial that the puppy parents takes and use her guidance as it will pay off immensely! My puppy, Rhett,was constantly love biting for attention and bothering us during non play time, like dinner. Thanks to her training (me and Rhett that is, lol), he is not nipping and knows when we go to eat, it's not play time. He's also much improved with greetings,has better focus, and is well in his way to be an excellent Canine Citizen! We love, Leslie! 2 paws up! !

Great extra service added by YBFDH!! This place was really great with working out our dogs aggression, and then when we were ready they helped us get him certified as an emotional support dog. I noticed a review on here or their other page stating that a dog had been in a fight. I am the owner of the second dog in this " fight". The story in the review below is inaccurate. The owner of YBFDH acted as any business owner would in the situation that was presented. I think it is malicious and frankly disgusting to post such a review. YBFDH/AT YOUR SERVICE has been a god send for our family! If you're not satisfied with your experience I will reimburse you for your training costs!
