We have a 10 months old French Bulldog that was showing some kind of general disobedience and misbehaving especially when we had strangers in the house, so we decided to look for help. Sarah was great from the first e-mail/call to the actual dog training session. She seems to know a lot about dogs and we can definitely see improvements in his behavior after we started doing what Sarah taught us. Her notes after the session were very detailed and even the books she recommended us have been very helpful to continue his training.
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.
Lynnae is amazing!! She is patient, positive and really helped me understand how to work with my dog. My dog was super excited every time he saw Lynnae. He loved "practicing" with her! I would highly recommend Lynnae to anyone who is interested in not only training their dog but understanding them too!
I took my new young dog for a private lesson with Melinda. We were already taking beginner agility lessons in a class at local dog club.. but Melinda's one-on-one was tailored for me and my dog. I've been trialing in agility for 13 years ... but Melinda has taught me new and better ways to train and practice. She is up to date on the latest techniques. She is over an hour drive for me, but well worth it.
Alice is wonderful and did an excellent job taking care of our dog! We felt very comfortable leaving him under her care.
Carol is such a great dog trainer! She was wonderful with our previous dog, so when we got a new dog we sought her out for training again. She has so much experience and really knows dogs, especially breed-specific tendencies. She takes charge and doesn't let the dog act out. She's the best trainer in the Albany area.
Our dog was unruly. He is now the best dog we could hope for Pet training really worked for us!
I have had nothing but positive interactions with Sharon and helpful suggestions and guidance. She has been very willing to meet me where I'm at and work with me/around my disabilities that can vary at times in terms of my activity level but have also had some unexpected turns lately. She is extremely professional, honest, and kind and great with my dog! He absolutely loves her. I can't say enough positive things about her. She is a true find and I feel blessed to have found her and have her involved in my "service dog in training" journey.
Tabitha has been a lifesaver for us! She has made herself available on our timeframe, has always shown up on time, and our puppy Wendell loves her :-)
Kevin and his son, Kyle both cared for my 10 month old puppy and were great with him. They were in contact with me while I was away to give me updates, and my neighbor contacted me to tell me how impressed she was by the amount of time they spent playing in the yard with my puppy. Kevin and Kyle are dog lovers, and it felt great to know that our puppy was in their care in my absence. Excellent experience.
Wiggly butt Bear loved her from their first meeting. He needs to learn his puppy manners because he will be my emotional support dog. I couldn't be happier with Emily
Jenn helped my husband and me in dealing with and managing our aggressive dog, and eventually helped us in coping with the loss of him. After that, Jenn never lost touch, checking in with us to see how we were doing and even inviting us to watch a Search and Rescue training with her team (to this day one of the coolest, most impressive things I've ever witnessed). What we didn't realize was that Jenn would not only help us in dealing with the early loss of our pet, but she would help us become better dog owners. She has taught us everything from animal behavior to human behavior, how to effectively communicate with our canine companions, and how to lead a happy, balanced life with them. What impresses me about Jenn is not only her professionalism when meeting with clients, but her energy, passion and knowledge for dogs and helping others. Jenn spent countless hours with us offering us advice, pointing out to us what she was seeing in our dog and why it was happening, and what we could do to modify the behavior. Jenn takes a genuine, caring interest in the dogs she trains and the families she helps. I simply cannot put a price tag on what Jenn has done for my family (2-legged and 4-legged). If you are noticing issues in your dog, or are just interested in learning more about dog behavior (and in turn human behavior), I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend Jenn to anyone and everyone. Don't bother looking anywhere else - the quality of her service is unrivaled!!

Many people train their pets, or at least attempt to. But I go beyond that. I love dogs and want to do what I can to make living with them as easy as I can. A lot of people get frustrated because their dog pulls to much when they walk them, or because it won't learn to sit or lay down. I want to alieviate that frustration. I have trained many dogs, both my own and friends and they are amazed. When new people come over and see how many tricks/commands my dogs know and how well behaved they are they say how shocked they are. I own large dogs and I always get people that are scared because of their size. I promise them that they will do nothing other than sniff you, lick you, and wait for you to pet them. By the end of the evening, most want to take them home. I enjoy working with dogs, so I don't see it as a job that needs to be done, but a job that yes, needs to be done, but that I love every minute doing.

I do dog grooming and training. I have been raising dogs for over 30 years. I have tought all levels of obedience and conformation handling. I have shown dogs in AKC shows and I have put championship titles on many different breeds of my own and I handled for others. I have owned my dog-grooming shop for 20 years.
I walk dogs and bring them to parks to run around and play. Sometimes, I bring my daughters so they can join in on the fun too. Sometimes, I house sit as well. I take care of pets on the side (from my full time job); it's a hobby and it's a little bit of extra money to help take care of my family's needs.
