Jennifer was willing to meet our needs, and offered alternative options for training our dog to stay in the yard with her electric fence. It turns out we had a rechargeable collar that wasn't holding charge. We replaced the system and our dog is now staying in the yard again. I want to thank Jennifer for bearing with us through the process. Lynn
His Training With My Mollie, The Dog Is Like Magic. I Noticed My Mollie's Behavior Changes Just Over Night. Peter Is A Wonderful 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.
I took Laila, my 10 week old Corgi, to Lisa to do her puppy program. Lisa was extremely friendly, helpful and informative. 8 to 12 weeks is a critical time in puppy development. The things they experience during this time, and how they experience them, shape their behaviors and attitudes as adults. Lisa used her expertise to facilitate many of these experiences in a constructive manner. Laila furthered her understanding of how to interact with other dogs appropriately and was encouraged to explore her environment and respond to new experiences with bravery. Laila was also started on a rigid feeding and bathroom schedule which was then provided to me in writing with great detail. A consistent schedule is essential for instilling house breaking habits in dogs. Lisa's experience and expertise is extensive and readily apparent. She was more than happy to answer all of my questions both during the program and in the time that has elapsed since it's completion. Laila has had minor behavioral set backs, and Lisa was there to walk me through corrective actions. Laila is now 16 weeks old and is doing great! I was able to use the things Lisa taught me to effectively continue Lailas training. The most important thing Lisa helped me understand is the way dogs think and learn. Understanding the way dogs learn is the difference between having a recipe and having a working knowledge. If this sounds like something your dog needs, I highly recommend that you contact Lisa because I was thoroughly satisfied with my experience.
Ok, I am telling you guys that Sandy Nelson is the Mary Poppins of dog training. I can not believe how easy she made it to learn how to get Ruby, my Saint Bernard, to actually listen (Ruby will now sit for treats). Today was the first lesson for my new girl "Babs". Babs is a Bassett Hound and like all hounds she is pretty dopey. Her first lesson went fantastic. With Sandy's help I am going to have two well behaved pooches. I can NOT say enough good things about The Pawsitive Experience. I am so grateful to have found Sandy on here.
So far Mike has provided us with the basic training techniques to train our 1 year old dog Bentley. In just 2 sessions she is learning the house rules. Thanks so much.
I was in desperate need of help because my two year old Labrador became aggressive over food, toys, and my attention. I had to do something and something fast. I called K9 academy and was in utter shock at how awesome they are! The trainer hung up the phone with me and came right to us to help us. I’m overjoyed with the fact that my dog Whiskey has been doing this for five days and I have a different dog already. I’m so excited for the process to continue and would recommend K9 Academy to anyone and everyone!
John has an objective eye and vast knowledge for training any and all dog types. He truly understands the relationship between a dog and their owner and during training he provides timely and constructive feedback. John helped both myself and my husband be more aware of our body language and how our mannerisms set the tone with how our dog reacts and empowered us to be the "alpha" dog so to speak in order to have a well balanced dog. Without hesitation we would recommend John as a qualified trainer. Beth and Scott D.
Haven’t started training yet. I hired her for her knowledge and experience in training dogs. So easy to talk to. Answered all my questions.
We have an older Doberman and a new puppy Doberman, Krystal was excellent. We really like her style of training and we've already noticed improvements after only one session. We plan on continuing to use her services!
Yvonne is AWESOME !!! We adopted 2 shelter dogs and found Yvonne to help us understand them. We have had 4 other dogs, went through training with all of them but we have learned so much more from Yvonne!! We HIGHLY recommend her she knows her stuff !!!!
Noelle was great! We came to her for aggression and destructive behavior, and she surpassed everything we expected. We got Riley back a whole new dog!! She came to our house during training and coached us through her training process. We could not be happier with her and the care and training of our dog. I'd give her 6 stars if I could!
We bring our dog here everyday of the week. The staff is great and we feel like our pup is well taken care of Everytime we pick him up. We will continue to bring him to the k9 edge and are very happy with our experience there
Competent, caring professionals who provide top quality dog training services. They take the time to understand the needs of both the owners and the dogs. Great experience!
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.

Hello there! My name is Alyssa and I am a professional dog trainer. I currently work at a dog training facility. At this facility I train and rehabilitate dogs. I have trained dogs with all different temperaments and behavior issues (fear aggression, dog aggression, agression towards humans, separation anxiety). That being said, no dog is too much for me! Other than my work life, I love to hangout with my pup and go for hikes. I am currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at my college and hope that one day I can work for a federal agency or with the police K-9 unit. With my services, I will be able to do obedience training for an hour a day with your pup as I am caring for him/her. Your dog will also experience some awesome hiking trips! If you would like to know more about me or my services, just ask! I have plenty of references from clients that I would be happy to provide!
Is your dog lunging and pulling on the leash? Is your puppy biting too hard? Do you have a multi-dog household? Do you have dogs who do not get along or dogs who do not like men, children, or vacuum cleaners? Do you have dogs who get anxious when you leave or when there are thunderstorms and other loud noises? Does your dog "leave it" or wait at the door or in the car? Does your pup steal your things? Does your dog come when called? I am a certified community training partner graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior and a fully certified canine behavior consultant of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and would love to work with you and your dog (or dogs!). I will come to you or for those of you with multiple roles in career and parenting, you can leave your dog with me while you go to work. I will get your pup going on training and then transition the dog to you and your family. I spent most of my career as a child psychologist, so I'll also happily train your children on how to train their dog. I'm available evenings and weekends as well beginning September 1, 2015.
