Absolutely amazing! Lee is a very knowledgeable dog trainer with truly outstanding results. If you are looking for a dog trainer I have no doubts that Lee can give you incredible results. I was fortunate enough to run across Lee and in the short time Lee has been working with my dog Emmy, she has made a remarkable turnaround. Before we started training with Lee my dog was one of those out of control, hard to handle situations. You name the behavior my Emmy displayed it. Let me tell you I didn't have much hope. The dog that use to bolt out the door at any chance she had, taking down anyone in her path, will now sit and stay by the door as I go in and out. She can be left alone without the fear of her chewing everything in her path. Walks are no longer a struggle but a time that's enjoyable for both of us. The freedom that comes with having a well behaved dog is incredible. Lee has given us the opportunity to enjoy Emmy.

John was incredible with our puppy! He is professional and fun to work with. He is so knowledgable about dogs and gave us so many great tools to help our puppy learn the basics and beyond. He truly wants to help you and your dog succeed and gives you all of the resources and knowledge he possibly can. Also one of the more affordable dog trainers I found when searching! John is the best, highly highly recommend him!

Our experience was awesome! Trainer is a true 'dog-whisperer'...we got a break training 2 at same time & she was amazing with them both! Her presence each week was met with two VERY EXCITED DOGS;) They both adored her, she made "working" fun for both my husband & I---AND my two puppies. One a 5 month old rotten-rottie, the other a Giant Schnoodle who won't turn 2y.o. until Christmas. Older one very stubborn, but melted like butter when she worked with him;) I would recommend trainer to ANYONE!!!! A+ 100% Top Trainer Award🎖

Kellie is a very knowledgeable trainer who specializes in positive reinforcement and training. She is so great about answering my questions and easing my concerns. She also dog sits and my dog absolutely LOVED being with her for a night. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help in training their dogs

Katherine walked my dog, Willie, one day when I was unable to. She was punctual and professional, yet friendly and easy to talk with. Katherine appears to be very knowledgeable about dogs and dog behavior, and she interacted quite well with Willie. Katherine walked Willie for a good hour, and while walking, provided him with water. I would readily hire her again without reservation.

Off Leash K9 is the best dog training in the Indy area, hands down! My wife and I have been through 4 different trainers to help us with our stubborn Boxer and we were not able to make any progress. After seeing Off Leash K9's videos on youtube we decided to give them a try. We did the 2 week board and train program and we cannot be happier!!! Our Boxer is now fully obedient and is able to enjoy life off-leash! We highly recommend Off Leash K9 Training!

Anne was absolutely wonderful. From the moment she walked in the door, our dog was mesmerized by her! Anne gave us all sorts of helpful hints to work with our dog- that we should have done years ago. I'd highly recommend Anne to anyone looking for a nice trainer that is effective!

When Dawn showed up for my first appointment my dog literally came across the table at her. That was August of 2014. After that we determined that it was best that Jake meet Dawn outside so our lessons were based on our individual needs and requirements from the very first day. From there when Dawn would visit she would always have a new tip or something she found on the internet, etc to share. I saw such improvements in Jake he gradually became more calm and knew his place in my family thanks to Dawn's training. I enjoyed my sessions and took something away from each one. Our last meeting was April of 2015 when it was determined that Jake had passed all of his tests, he's like a different dog now. I would definitely recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a dog trainer! :-)

Not only is Todo's Translator efficient, the owner offers an in-home experience. This means your dog isn't being trained with 40 other dogs in a cement room, but instead has all the scents and smells and experiences of being in a home. Justine is the best trainer I've ever met!

We found Nanci after adding a fifth dog to our little pack. Dexter was a headstrong, Intelligent rescue--a beautiful mix of border collie, bulldog and who knows what. He naturally wanted to mimic the behaviors of our smaller dogs, but his size and energy made it painfully clear how poorly we had trained the smaller ones. They jumped on arriving guests--a small annoyance from a nine pound dog but a potential injury from a much larger, stronger pup. Nanci's calm spirit and quiet confidence brought the stress level down even on her first visit. She stepped right in to a sometimes chaotic environment--often with a different dog assigned to each family member as she worked with our entire group at once. She never lost her patience, she never wavered in her confidence and she always presented professionalism and warmth. Our dogs LOVED Nanci and exuberantly greeted her and followed her directions eagerly. (I'm not sure the humans always followed as well as the dogs! Ha) She gave us clear, concise directions and "assignments" for us to work on between visits. She answered our questions and worked with our requests. She quickly recognized the personality traits and skills of each family member--those with four legs and those with two--and tailored her training to work with each dog's and each person's unique offerings. No small task, I can assure you! During the time we were working with Nanci, our beloved older dog Paris struck ill and despite months of treatment and efforts, we lost her. Nanci's compassion and support through that difficult period means more than I can say. She gave us powerful insight into what Paris's death would mean to the other dogs and how her absence in the pack would affect hierarchy and behavior. She gave us things to watch for as the other dogs adjusted to the loss of their canine leader. I cannot recommend Nanci highly enough. Her skills, her knowledge of animal behavior, her calm demeanor, her passion for animals, and her warmth as a human being make her a shining light and a trainer any family would be blessed to have.

The BloomingPaws trainers have done some excellent training with my dog Shadow. She went from a wild little puppy to a nice dog to live with. I was amazed when I showed up to our lesson and she was listening to everything we said and wasn't jumping all over me.
