Jennifer is exactly what we needed. We had to surrender our dog due to aggressive behavior. From the first moment I contacted her I knew she would tell me the truth and do what needed to be done for everyone involved to have a happy life. She sat down with us an explained how we had gotten to the point, why she felt she could not help us train him and then held our hand through the entire process. What was awesome was when we sat down with her she listened heard our story asked us questions to really understand what we need from her, then gave her honest opinion. Her knowledge of the anxiety and behavior our dog was exhibiting was very helpful in our decision. I have talked with multiple trainers who said they could help or offered support and fell through or gave false hope. Jennifer is not that at all. She has checked in with me every day, answering any questions that I had. I felt like she was in my corner. I can not thank her enough for making sure not only I was okay but so was my dog. She is a trainer that will give you her best no matter what. It has been such a pleasure working with her during a very hard time in our lives!!!!!

Unbelievable. I have a 12 week old Australian Cattle mix and almost no experience in training dogs. Peter is extremely professional, kind, and experienced. He came right on time to my house at 5:30AM and brought treats for my puppy and even gave me a clicker. I noticed a clear difference in my puppy and Peter helped me to understand more about animal behavior. I look forward to our next session this coming week! He is outstanding!

Theresa's love for animals and patience is untouchable. She provided me with detailed notes and feedback from our sessions. I saw an incredible change in my dog's behavior and manners. I would strongly recommend Theresa. Even after my sessions were over, she has remained a resource.

John has been a savior. he has helped me modify both my behavior, and my dog's behavior. My two Chihuahua's are such timid dogs compared to their first session two weeks ago. I also enjoy John's use of sensory integration for the dogs, and also teaching the owner how to modify their behavior. He's an awesome trainer who made it very aware that if I ever had questions, to contact him.

My puppy Benny and I had a great experience with Sandy. She taught me many skills to use with Benny that shaped his positive behavior as a puppy. She was always available for advice via text and phone (about training and advice about raising a puppy). She is very professional and also very friendly. Her love for dogs shows in the work she does! I would highly recommend Sandy.

I originally started showing my Samoyeds many years ago after being trained by Sue and her husband Bill. I showed three dogs to their Championship titles, also attending Westminister Kennel Club with Sues encouragement. My latest Samoyed has been the biggest challenge yet. After many bad experience obedience classes, private trainers and issues that were getting increasingly worse, far beyond my capabilities, I contacted Sue to see if she could help with his behavior, and although a long shot at the time, my stretch goal was to get him into the show ring. Not only did she identify his problems but she has been very patient and caring while working with him to build his confidence and never gave up on him when others had. He has complete trust in Sue and is always so excited to see her and her daughter Katherine. After a very active Fall show schedule, I am very proud to say he is only one major away from his Championship title. He has come so far and I am so proud of him and the fantastic work that Sue has done with him. I admire her sportsmanship and professionalism and am very grateful for all she has contributed to be able to be at the point we are at.

Lesli took the best possible care of my cat while we were away for 10 days. The cat is not young (12 years old), spoiled and had just traveled from France but Lesli managed to win her affections and trust very quickly. Diki ate well, loved being brushed and cuddled and was a happy girl when we returned home. Lesli clearly loves animals and understands that extra-special attention we all want for our beloved pets. She sent photos and reports daily that provided great reassurance. It is always hard to leave an animal, but now I know we can rely on Lesli if we must be away.

I have been working for lucky dogs daycare for about a year and a half. My experience with lucky dogs has been a great one. We are still a growing business and are building up our facility to be the best it can be. We are a full service daycare facility, but we also do boarding, training, grooming and we have our new retail shop with all sorts of goodies for your pups. I love being able to bring my dog Buffy in for a groom. She's older so she doesn't care for daycare, but she loves coming to Lucky Dogs for a good pampering by Jane. All of our groomers are great at what they do and our experts in their field. They have been grooming for many many years. The best part about working for lucky dogs would have to be the dogs. We have a really good group of dogs that come pretty much everyday. At lucky dogs your dog isn't just another name on a list, every staff member has their own favorites lol. And throughout the day each dog gets some one on one attention with their favorite staff member and vice versa. We take the time to get to know each dog and their behaviors, and try to cater to each dogs individual needs. So we can ultimately have a safer group of dogs to play with each day. We also have a really good group of staff members, some of them have been here for a couple years and a few have been here a little less. We really don't have a high turn around rate for staff like with most daycares. So our staff and especially the dogs are like family here.

When first calling, the process was made really simple and all questions I had were answered and put me at ease. The fees/registration for classes is very competitive as I looked around at different places. Having gone there for Puppy classes, I was a bit skeptical at first. Not anymore - Not only do I love the facilty but our trainer Jenn is amazing. I have also signed Drago up for Obedience thru Champion with Jenn and cannot wait to start. Would definitely recommend ALL that have animals to check Champion Kennels out!!!!!

My new dog (Rina) that I adopted a month ago from a shelter is very nervous and afraid of any type of noise and barks at people walking by the house, and at us when we try to leave the house. I have not even left her home alone yet. I realized how bad this was within the first few days and realized that I was going to have to find help for her (and me). I found Lee's name and read about her credentials and her experience working with dogs with the same problems as Rina and contacted her right away. I also saw that Lee believes in only positive reinforcement training ONLY which is very important to me. Lee responded quickly and began to send me information I could start reading re. Rina's behavior in advance of the Consultation we had planned. When Lee arrived for the consult, Rina did not make it easy for her at all to even step into the house - - barking at the "stranger" and carrying on for awhile! She was VERY upset! Eventually, with Lee's skills and understanding of the situation, she slowly made her way into the house, and after a few minutes, was sitting at our dining room table, and Rina was looking for more treats - - and then even laying at her feet! This was not an easy task, believe me. Lee told me that she specialized in these types of nervous, phobic dogs and she sure proved it to me yesterday! She took her time with Rina and really knew how to handle the situation. I was very impressed with that, and I learned a lot during the consult regarding Rina's distress and how we can help her. I plan to continue into a training program soon with Lee when she feels Rina is ready.

Michelle took the time to understand our dog, a Tibetan Terrier, and his specific issues. We worked with her in our home, on walks around our neighborhood, and in group settings. With her positive reinforcement techniques, we feel much more comfortable managing our dog's behavior--both inside and outside our house.

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.
