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.

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.

This took my a while to post with my crazy life, but Jennifer came to our house last winter to help deal with an aggression issue with a dog (not our own but of a relative) and our new baby. She went above and beyond to help us, and it was more like a therapy session than dog training! That said, it was clear she knew what she was doing with both the other dog and even with our own usually bouncy dog who greeted her politely. We hope to some day hire her again.

Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

We were thrilled with our experience with Reckless Adventures. Joan is very dependable, thorough and most of all - a dog lover. I was able to relax on my vacation because I trusted that she was dependable. When we got back our dog was very happy (and tired from lots of walking!) Highly recommend.

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.

We rescued a shepherd/malamute mix puppy from a shelter out-of-state and hired Sandy to help us with our new addition to the family. Sandy’s experience, dedication, patience and love for dogs is remarkable! From the first few sessions, I was amazed how this little puppy was on his way to become a good listener and follow commands. She is always prepared with each weekly lesson and makes it fun instead of making it a chore. She provides handouts each time she visits so that the family can continue with the lessons. Our puppy is now five months old and loves Sandy when she comes over for training. When we visit our favorite pet store, we are always given compliments on how well our puppy behaves and we credit this to Sandy for training Diesel and the family! I would definitely recommend Sandy to anyone who would like assistance training their dog. 5/5. Heidi P

Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!

Yvonne is AWESOME! a self proclaimed dog-person who won our cats over instantly. She clearly loves and values all animals! She took superior care of our 3 cats for a week (one of them needed meds) and took care of our house-related items as well. She stayed in contact and we felt secure that our fur babies were safe and happy the whole time. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Lisa was so reassuring and professional over the phone.. She was so honest with me about my training with my dog, we were actually able to resolve most issues with a phone consultation. She could have pressured me into signing on to a training program but she has integrity and the experience to recognize that my concerns over my dog were minor enough where I "didn't need her", but she was still caring enough to make sure she coached me appropriately over the phone anyway. Thank you Lisa...

In a very short period of time, Steve was able to teach myself and my dog, Oozie, several new commands that we’ve been trying to learn for weeks, with treats and clickers...If you are looking for a real dog lover and professional trainer, Steve is your guy!

I had a 23 week old puggle who had severe separation anxiety due to a breakup with my boyfriend we also had a year old pitbull they were together everyday since my puggle was 8 weeks old after I moved out and we got our own place she would not stop barking when I would leave her alone. I have to do something so I called good dog training and she guided me through stepson how to control her barking and crying and right now she only likes Criesfor like a minute I tell her to be quiet and give her a treat and we repeated it and repeated it and repeated it. and she finally stoppe I almost got evicted from my apartment if I couldn't get the Barking under control but thanks to good dog we still have a place to live and everything is great

We acquired a rescue lab and had no idea what this boy knew... We hired Balanced Pooches dog training and could not be more impressed with the service John provided. Our boy Tucker is a totally different dog today then he was the day we got him.... We have all learned so much, and We are all works in progress. John was truly interested in working with all of us so we were all on the same page as far as training and building a great relationship to make a balanced home. I don't think words could explain how much this man cares to make every relationship between you and your pet a wonderful one. Hiring John was the best decision we made, and we highly recommend him.
