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.

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.

My experience with Sandy and the Pawsitive Experience was outstanding. The first thing I liked and appreciated was Sandy’s approach to assessing my situation. After getting acquainted with our dog and what I had hoped to accomplish with the dog training lessons, Sandy tailored a program to our needs and didn’t try to heap unnecessary add-ons to my program. Once the lessons began, the thing that stood out was Sandy’s attention, not only to our dog, but also to my family (and children, in particular). Sandy took the time during each lesson to integrate my young children into the lessons so that they could get comfortable around our dog and understand that the dog was young and needed time to grow up just as they do. My best endorsement of Sandy is to say that because of her help, we absolutely love having a dog as part of our family and our dog loves being part of our family. If you want a friendly, knowledgeable and professional dog trainer, give Sandy a call.

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.

Jess has done an exceptional job helping us train our dog, Bruin. He is a 2yo German Shepherd that has anxiety and a ton of energy. We just finished our 6 week, private training lessons and are extremely thrilled at all of his progress and could not have done it without all of her help. We plan to sign up for more training with Jess to take it to the next level. I highly recommend Jess if you are looking for a trainer. She is extremely patient and so knowledgeable about dogs and very helpful.

No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.

Michelle is absolutely terrific at what she does. My husband and I were in our late 50's when we got a puppy and thought we are crazy so we hired Michelle to work with us at our home. It was the best experience. My dog Bailee is the most well behaved dog. I can take her anywhere with me, to anyone's house and she is extremely well behaved. I feel that we owe all of this to Michelle. I would never give a second thought in recommending Michelle. She was a fantastic dog trainer and you can tell that she loves doing what she does.

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.

Excellent is an understatement. This is more than just obedience training. It is insight to the dog/human relationship, from the dogs point of view. I didn't think I could change the behavior of my 4 1/2 year old dog, but I was mistaken. I just needed to stop doing all the wrong things. Don't go elsewhere just to realize you should have made Progressive Canine Dog Training and Behavioral Services your first stop!

Noelle is my third try at finding a trainer for my dog whom I've had for only a year and he's now 4 years old. When I got him the person giving him away never told me anything of his aggressions which I now know he has. Noelle has been to my home a number of times so far and I love her. She is very patient, listens to me and knows that it takes time to not only train my dog but I need to be trained as well. She has given me a number of things to do with my dog that when implemented is spot on. The best part of the trainings is the one on one, especially if you have issues with your dog. I would highly recommend her as a trainer.

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.

Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.

I worked closely with Nicholas for life coaching for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. He is a phenomenal speaker and wonderful mentor who has an innate ability to track your negative thoughts and emotions and turn your mental state around to a more positive one. Because of him, I am now pursuing full recovery with my eating disorder, have now fully embraced my hearing disability, and am now helping other women learn to love themselves and recognize their worth. I also recently hired Nicholas as my personal service dog trainer (talk about a multi-faceted individual!), and he has quickly established a wonderful, respectable, and loving relationship with my dog. Nicholas exhibits patience, professionalism, and quality in his work. Don't miss out on working with this amazing individual!

Heidi is an excellent trainer. She not only clearly demonstrates what to do but explains why you are doing it that way. In just a couple of sessions my dogs are doing things I thought were impossible and my dogs have had 8 years of bad habits to correct.

Amazing!! I couldn't be happier with the training my two shepherds recieved. They are wonderful off leash, I can bring them anywhere! I get compliments on how well they are trained all the time. If you want high quality training of your dog you've found the perfect place. I would and will take all my future dogs here. Titan (17 months when trained) and Layla (7 months when trained) are still well behaved and listen. Yet act like dogs, they still have their own personalities, that was no broken from them in training as some other trainers have done.

She is amazing with the animals! She taught my dog (and me) most of the basic commands in just 45 mins with great results! She spent a good 2 hrs. Talking about ways I can help my dog (new rescue), and how she is willing to help me. I could not have found a better, more personable trainer than Kim.
