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 was fantastic with my dog, Shilo! He's a very scared dog and it shows as aggression. I'll be honest, I was reaching the end of my rope and losing hope that Shilo would have a happy future, and I knew I had to find somebody to help who could educate me on how to help my little guy. Peter was patient and encouraged my family and I all to have patience and be ready to put in the work. We've been working with Shilo according to Peter's instructions and he's already doing much better. I'm able to get his attention away from barking at strangers/ squirrels/ guests and he's been doing better at going to the bathroom OUTSIDE, which was a problem that was driving my mom up a wall. Peter uses positivity training only and has a bunch of useful videos on his website. He's clearly somebody who's passionate about helping dogs and we're all very grateful for his help, especially Shilo, since he's clearly more confident and relaxed since we've starting this training regimen. 10/10 would recommend to anybody looking for anything from puppy training to serious problem training.
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 is doing a great job helping me with my dog Darla's training. Amanda comes to my house for the sessions which I really like. I hired her for 4 sessions and have had 3 sessions so far with the 4th session scheduled in a few weeks. I adopted Darla from the SPCA and she came with a lot of baggage and fears that I keep discovering as things occur. Her biggest fears were people, noises, & other animals. Her fear was so great that she showed aggression (not towards me but towards the person, noise, or animal) which was worrisome for me because I wanted her to have a good quality of life with me. I've seen such an improvement in Darla's behavior already and we,be only had 3 sessions so far. She's learned quite a few commands, she is far less fearful of people, handles her fears of noises much better, & we're still working on her reaction to other animals but it has improved greatly. Amanda has suggested & shown me different options to try when these situations arise and they're working do well. All in all I'm very pleased with Amanda & the training sessions. I love the post session training notes because they help me to remember everything we covered during the session. I would highly recommend Amanda at Good Dogs to anyone who is having issues with their furry family members. Amanda is very knowledgeable, approaches everything with a positive attitude, uses positive reinforcement, and is so good & kind to my dog. I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience.
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.
My experience with Sandy and the Pawsitive Experience was outstanding. The first thing I liked and appreciated was Sandys 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 didnt try to heap unnecessary add-ons to my program. Once the lessons began, the thing that stood out was Sandys 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.
Jacqui is an awesome trainer! Through her training & suggestions, our girl Molly has been more responsive to us. Through Jacqui’s positive re-enforcement we also now know a much better way to communicate with Molly. Her methods are basic & simple to follow so we can follow up with Molly’s “homework”. If you want a great dog trainer, Jacqui is the lady for you. She comes highly recommended by our family.
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.
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.
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.
Kathy is an avid dog lover that has plenty of patience to work with many types of dogs. I have used her to help with dog training and to pet/house sit and she was great! Kathy is also resourceful in connecting and working with other trainers for help or suggestions in dealing with certain situations that may come crop up while training a dog. This provides a wealth of options and education for both the dog and their owners.
I have been working with Nayiri since we adopted our mix-breed dog as a young puppy a little over a year ago. As I have no experience with dog-training, I have greatly appreciated Nayiri's supportive, patient, and clear advice. Nayiri was able to help us with teaching basic commands, as well as to address issues particular to our dog and family. She also helped us to recognize "bad habits" which were developing, which we had overlooked. Nayiri consistently promoted positive reinforcement, rather than a more punitive training style. Yet, she also helped us to integrate firm, and clear directions when our dog was "testing" us. Nayiri has even worked patiently with my two children, and taught them fun games to play with our dog. She has been extremely flexible about scheduling, has answered questions via email, and provided us with written information.
I am thrilled with the progress Canine Solutions Training Services has made thus far with my dog, Daisy. I have a training session today, (I think it is more for me than the dog) I cant wait to see her progress! They are teaching me the tools I need to be my dogs handler. I am hoping to spend many more months (years) training with them. They have inspired me to work hard to bring out the best in my dog and make her a solid canine citizen and to be the best owner I can be for my dog. Thank you all for what you have done so far!
Michaela was very helpful and thorough when training my dog Henry. She not only trained Henry to heel, sit and stay but she showed me how I can maintain my dogs obedience with everyday tricks we practice on our own. I highly recommend Michaela to fellow dog owners who are looking for lasting results.
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.
Maggs truly cares about the dogs she cares for. She specializes with dogs who have dog socialization issues and trains while she boards, Huge Plus!
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!
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.

I train dogs. I can clean them, teach them tricks, and do more. I can also teach them to love kids.
