She was very good. She just had to cut my dogs nails & my dog gets kind of nervous. But everything went very well. I will recommend her to everyone.
I have a 1y/o yorkshire and maltese mixed dog with serious separation anxiety and some behavior issues. I was going through the dog trainers in my area and Jennifer caught my attention immediately- the review was almost 100% positive, saying how helpful and responsive she is. We scheduled a meeting and I ended up training & boarding my dog with her for about a month. The result was impressive: he's crate trained, he becomes quiet in the car, no more excessive barking... She even found out his favorite raw food and changed his diet...He used to have kibbles and wouldn't eat much every day.. Now he finishes every meal within 2 mins! He looks super healthy now!!! I'm definitely gonna board my dog with her again. Training and boarding are both amazing!!! SHE'S THE BEST!!
Peter has been helping train my very domineering rescue pup. He has been nothing short of amazing!!! He is patient and kind and takes his time with each session. Our dog is stubborn and aggressive towards men, week by week I have been seeing changes in our dogs behavior. I am surprised at how quickly he picks things up all in great part to Peter. I look forward to the changes that we will see in appointments to come. I would 100% recommended Peter if you are in need of a dog trainer.
Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.
Amanda has done wonders for what was already a pretty good dog, but a bit stubborn and way too clever too often. There is still more work to do but I would easily recommend her to anyone looking for a good dog trainer.
John was great with our two dogs. He taught us what we needed to be great owners and set some boundaries for our dogs that had become a little blurred. Both dogs had recently become dog/dog aggressive when on their leashes. We learned how to get control back in the home and outside. We still have work to do (reinforcing) but John is a great trainer!
Lisa is an absolute professional who loves the dogs in her care. I used thumbtack to get quotes and she had the most competitive pricing. We met at her 7 acre farm and immediately began training my dog and retraining me. She desires the people with whom she works to be the best dog handling parents possible. We started with a one week program and we're so happy with the results that we bought another week of training. I can't recommend Lisa more highly. She is the absolute best dog trainer in my estimation.
Sandy is awesome! She has been doing basic obedience training with our dogs and she has given us some great pointers. We recently started having an issue with one of our dogs being aggressive towards children. Sandy has gone above and beyond in trying to help us. We called her after one incident and she actually came right over to our house to talk to us about the situation, which was very reassuring. On another occasion when our dog snapped at a visitor's child, we called Sandy and she came right over to work with our dog and the child together. We have been so impressed with her level of commitment to helping us and our dogs. If you are looking for a caring and thoughtful trainer, we very highly recommend Sandy at The Pawsitive Experience!
Courtney is a super dog trainer. Her skills in training were quite evident on her first visit with us. She is a good listener to all the problems and then she explains where to begin to ultimately have a positive outcome when all the training is complete. Be prepared to do some homework but you won't be disappointed with the results.
I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.
It's hard to know who to choose when hiring any professional. I have an 8 month old German Shepherd, and after doing much research trainers, I decided to go with ACT K9. I was so impressed from the very beginning! During the evaluation, I met John and Lindsey and 2 of John's dogs. I have never met more trained dogs in my life. John's interaction with them was amazing. A week later we started training my dog, Sasha. After one lesson, she was already learning to heel. We have only had 2 lessons so far, but Sasha is already listening so much better. John and Lindsey really know what they're doing. The training is as much for me as it is for my dog. I'm so happy I chose them!!!
Susan has been handling and training our dogs for the breed ring since 1994. During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.) She has helped us evaluate litters as well. She has always been generous not only with her skills but her knowledge. We look forward to continuing to work with her.
We used Providence Dog Trainers:Off Leash K9 Training LLC to help us with our dog Eve. Becca our trainer was top notch!! Our dog needed some help with socialization skills as well as general obedience training. You've come to the absolute best dog trainers around!! I would highly recommend them!!!
Blake was a great trainer in helping me with my dog who had crate anxiety. When I got my dog he couldn't even stay in the crate for an hour without hurting himself, Blake was caring and helped train him to where he can stay in the crate for full work days no problem. She also cared enough to teach him obedience and helped my dog become confident in being away from me. Being trained by her was the best thing that could have happened for my dog.
Not only is Stephen a competent dog trainer but hes a good guy too. The methods that he has taught me to train Roxy are working great and I look forward to continuing with his advanced course as well.

We were in search of a new dog walker to help us with our 2 year old golden. We never expected to meet such a reliable and professional person as Jess. She brings a lot to the table with her many years of experience working with animals. Our dog absolutely loves her (he rolled onto his back within minutes of meeting her which is not typical of him at all!). I would highly recommend Jess to anyone looking for someone passionate about helping owners and their animals.
Robin Billings is an experienced dog trainer. Robin has the innate ability to "read" your dog, and then she can help you understand how to train your dog. Robin's training methods are positive, not punitive. You and your dog will both enjoy having Robin instruct you - whether it you are training house manners or for the obedience ring.
I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.
Absolutely unbelievable experience thus far. Friendly, timely, flexible availability and location. Great with our puppy and he is already substantially improved with only 2 sessions. You will not be disappointed with Sandra!

I teach dog owners how their dog's mind works, and how to connect to the dog in a way it understands. I teach the dog owner how to be an effective pack leader so the dog will follow the owner out of respect, not because they have food treats.
