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 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!!
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.
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.
Lisa is a highly gifted trainer! Her innate ability to instill calm behavior is unmatched by any trainer. Furthermore, her experience training horses gives her the ability to work with larger more unruly dogs. Where other trainers wanted to break the dog into submission or spoil them, Lisa walked a line that shows the dogs they are loved but are on the bottom of the totem pole. In addition, I was taught how to work with my dog in order to further his training. Her prices are more than fair and her results are amazing!
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 !!!!
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.
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.
Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

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.
Very knowledgeable and professional, only a few weeks in of training and I will only bring my dog ( future dogs) to All American K9. I love the attentiveness Stephen has/ pays to not only my dog but my wife and myself, he teaches you ways you wouldnt think of AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS. 3 weeks in and it's the best thing I could've done for my dog as well as myself
Rebecca is a very knowledgable and patient dog trainer. We worked with her to train our puppy. He was quite receptive to her training approach and is a wonderful young dog now. She provides training tips and information to us very clearly, which greatly helped us along the way. Not only was Rebecca wonderful with our puppy, she was also very patient and flexible with US, the dog owners. The fact that Rebecca is able to work with both the pet AND the owners to work out a training regime that worked for US really helped with the training process. Although we haven't seen Rebecca in a little while, she continues to check in to see how we're doing. I really don't know what we would have done without her! :) We would (and do) highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for help with their pets!
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!
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.
