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.

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!

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.

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

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.
