Knowledgeable highly experienced breeder . Exceptional quality GSP and training . Highly recommended
Sandy led the second round of training for my 2-year old rescue dog. Our first training class offered at a major pet retail chain was OK, but the training was a little disorganized. Sandy corrected the earlier training, offering really practical and helpful advice for me to work with my dog. Each training lesson built on the previous one, so the learning was reinforced. And best of all, Sandy really loves her job and her students! (And my dog is always happy when he sees her!) I recommend Sandy highly!
I rarely write reviews for businesses but it is my extreme pleasure to add a review for John Horan of ACTK9. John went above and beyond in training my dog Cooper. I could not be more please with the results of his work. I now have a wonderful dog who comes when called, downs, places, etc. I highly recommend John to everyone who wants the same results. He is a true professional. Thanks you John.
Very nice, knowledgable, answered all of our questions and then some. Showed us proper techniques in handling and training out dog. Nothing negative to say.
Meghan--Thank you so much for all of the pet sitting and training. Georgie is a new dog, and we are better pet parents! You are fantastic, and we are so grateful. We look forward to having you back soon.
I went to Jezzie paws with a new 4 month old golden retriever who hadn’t had any training. Jessica is amazing. She trains in a loving and caring way using positive reinforcement. I would definitely recommend going to Jezzie paws for any kind of training. She can handle it all.
Melinda is a perfect example of a great teacher. She is kind and supportive with positive reinforcement training methods. She is incredibly patient with dogs and their not so coordinated parents. If you want a trainer with compassion, knowledge and patience, with a keen sense of what you and your dog need, choose Melinda.
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!
I have known Ken for many years. He has always been so passionate about dogs and training. He trained my dog, and did a fantastic job in such a short amount of time. He does amazing work/training. He's definitely your go-to guy!! He'll get the job done, no doubt about it!
Debbie has all of the above traits. Our dog took to all her cues immediately. She is a pleasure to learn from and work with and checks in to make sure training is going well.
Donna has great working with us (mom at 93, husband at 80 and me at 60) training our 10 month large black lab mix Sampson. She shows us how to do an exercise and then has us do it. Sampson is learning very quickly and his obedience improveso weekly. Love that she comes to house and works with us with environment distractions.
Gina has helped me both with an eight week basic training class for my reactive do. She has also helped me with issues I have had with my dog at home. She is always available for my questions and offers knowledgeable advice. Gina gives positive feedback and encouragement. My dog is a work in progress so I know I will continue to contact her in the future for help and suggestions.
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.
Great training, small class a lot of interaction. Facility nice. Would use again and recommend to others. Always available for questions.

I feel that my skills are more about understanding the dog and how he/she learns. When people understand that human language is not the one that works when you have a dog that has a issue that doesn't seem to get better but just keeps getting worse when you can learn to speak dog an know why it works you will see happy owners along with a very happy and healthy relationship with the dog
