Extremely pleased with our first meeting. It was nice to meet someone as caring about training our dog as we are. It was also eye opening on how knowledgeable about the entire process Susie is.

Are experience was truly amazing! We have a 1 year old German Shepard mix that is high energy and within the first half hour Dee had her understanding commands like sit, bed, lie down and stay. She also showed us how to get her to stop jumping and nipping. Not only was the training great and effective but her recommendations for items to help walking and keeping her busy while we are not home were as well. We also really liked that she is very passionate at helping dogs and and their owners and that was very evident because she works with you during first appointment and then if you need any extra help you can text,call or email her! I would highly recommend this dog trainer!!

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!).

Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom

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

Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!

We rescued a Siberian husky puppy for a new addition to our family and for our kids to have a companion to play with. We were beside ourselves with just how much energy Kane had. We knew he could be an energetic breed but he was always running around and loved being outside all of the time; we live in an apartment complex. We were referred to Pawfect Training and felt very confident based on the reviews on the website and on Thumbtack. After our first appointment, we couldn't believe the amount of information being provided to us about the Siberian husky breed, about how Kane was relating to our family, about why his energy was always so high, and so, so much more. Matthew got our entire family involved in the training, including our 5-year-old. The basic obedience went incredibly well and the connection our whole family now shares with Kane is amazing. We all walk more now and Kane is calmer inside and even around other dogs he hasn't met. The whole experience with Pawfect Dog Training was one to remember and we are thankful for having found the right trainer for our incredible new family member!

We are extremely satisfied with Carolyn! We revied many people and we received many responses but somrthing about Carolyn's approach really made us want to work with her! She's patient, on time and flexible with our schedule. We have a unique situation at our home having two dogs that decided one day they were not going to get along. Our one dog (who is very stranger aggressive) LOVES Carolyn and laid down next to her even on the first day, which is huge for her. Through our training interactions we learned how much our pitty LOVES training and how our other dog needs our help with training to increase her confidence. We will continue working with her and are extremely happy with our choice!

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.

Belinda was absolutely amazing, she looked after out new dog pheobie while we were away over Christmas. I immediately felt comfortable leaving her in charge of our pet & home when we met & my confidence continued to grow. Belinda clearly loves dogs & pheobie obviously felt at ease with her very quickly as they were playing & gelling within minutes. Belinda sent daily updates with pictures to us which was sweet as we missed her & could see she was happy & ok. I would highly recommend Belinda & will definitely be using who let the dogs out again, in fact we already have her pencilled in for our next trip to Mexico. Thanks Belinda.

    In the house she is fine. The minute going out for any reason, even into the backyard, all hell breaks loose. She yelps like she is being tortured, pulls, yaps and snaps at our other dog (male 20 months). Another dog is visable - red zone. Wedding end of August with guests coming to the house. Trip to Utah is October where she will be hiking and meet other dogs on trails in potentially dangerous areas - drop offs, cliffs....
