I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

Peter is extremely intelligent and well-read when it comes to dog training. He spent two quality private sessions with me and my dog, and the improvement in her behavior was obvious within minutes of our first session. We have a long way to go but Peter gave me and my family a great foundation upon which to raise my new pup. And who knew, we had the tools all along - food!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

My wife and I attended classes at Patience Inspired Dog Training and found it to be excellent in all matters. We have attended many classes at other facilities over the years with our dogs and found this to be the best. We especially liked the patience that Michelle has during her classes and while working with our dog and us. Overall it was a great experience!

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.

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.

Heather was very informative and provided excellent training documentation. we discussed Sammy's issues and she explained how to handle them. she was very patient to listen to my litany of the problems Sammy and I have. Sammy is finicky and will not eat regularly. Heather explained that until Sammy's eating habits improved, his obedience will lag as well. we are having marked improvement as we continue to work on both. he's doing much better, thanks Heather! ciao!

About

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.
