Denise helped Zinnie from when she was a pup and now she is almost 3. She has been through Basic and Advanced Obedience training. Denise also worked with me and Zinnie to get her to become a service dog for me. Zinnie is now a service dog that is scent trained for me and retrieved train. Zinnie is over 110 pounds and is able to pick up a credit card off a wood floor. This was all due to the training Denise did with me. If I had questions or issues Denise would work with me and Zinnie to get us through those issues. I wasn't able to for the longest time allow Zinnie to be off leash or she would run from me and wouldn't come back. Now she can be off leash and will mind my calls.

WE LOVE HER! Not only is she smart and clear with her teachings but she is so good with my dog! He loves her the second she enters my home! She has helped us with leash pulling and basic obedience so far. Katherine is also One of the most reasonabley priced and far exceeds what she charges! We are very pleased with how much she cares and treats our Pup like her own.

Brian has done an excellent job helping us train our dog to be the dog we knew he could be! Since starting training, our dog has improved leash skills and obedience in the home.. we are currently working on improving his obedience in more challenging/distracting environments. We are more comfortable being a leader for our dog, which makes training less frustrating.

Steve worked well with not only my dog that I am having some training issues with but also my 15 yo (he was able to pinpoint items on him that I never really noticed but realize now he can improve on). He was wonderful to work with and patient and professional. He was very knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend.

I fostered a 5 month old Coonhound that was rescued from a neglectful home. She had very little social skills and a slew of medical issues. The immediate issue, after seeing to the medical, was her food aggression because I have two other dogs. After researching and speaking to a few other dog trainers, I chose Gray House Dog Training because Victoria (the trainer) felt each dog she trains is a separate case and she would evaluate her to see what training would best fit the individual dog. The other trainers had a set training system for all cases. She had my insecure, neglected pup sitting on command at her first session! Victoria interacted with and evaluated my pup before she came up with a plan on how to feed her to eliminate the aggression. And it worked! She also worked with her on a structured routine teaching her how to walk on a leash. We learned basic commands as well. Victoria taught me how to continue training on the days she was not here. It was crucial my pup was trained before she was adopted in order for her to make the transition to her forever home successful. Not only did Victoria teach my pup how to live as a part of a family, she taught her acceptance of love and trust. I am happy to say my Coonie is in her forever home happily living with two Coonie sisters! Politely sharing food and love! Victoria played a crucial part of giving this poor pup a second chance for a wonderful life.

Jodie has been fantastic with the information and training she provides. She is very organized with her puppy classes and provides additional information on puppy care at the end of each class. She also came to our home for an individual training session and was very insightful and helpful with tips on house training and providing tips on our puppy setup, schedule, and obedience training. She has been very helpful and is clearly very experienced.

Clare Owings has been working with my 18 year old son and his 8 year old Labrador/boxer, with obedience training. On the first visit, I could tell immediately, she had the perfect personality and patience to help make this a pleasant experience. I found her ad in the local paper, and contacted her, without any prior references. Clare was available the next day, and arrived several minutes early for the first lesson (And each one since). She charges a reasonable fee , considering she provides more than just dog training. She has a genuine interest in my son and his future. They talk extensively about anything and everything...high school, college, life. Clare comes to the house for lessons and has also met at a nearby park.....wherever is convenient for my son. I highly recommend Clare Owings! We are fortunate (in many ways) to have found her!

Elisa has been wonderful to work with! She has been training our dog Zoe for over 1 month now and we have seen great results! Zoe is a border collie mix and can be very stubborn at times, and as her parents we didn't do the best job with correcting her behaviors when they began. She is now 5, and despite her age Elisa has been able to teach us how to train her properly and address her problematic behaviors. Elisa has a great connection with animals and has done an amazing job with training Zoe and with training us as well. She provides in-home training sessions which are extremely helpful, and she is always flexible with our work schedules, even meeting us on weekends if needed. We really enjoy working with her and are happy with the results so far! We recommend her to anyone who needs training/dogwalking/petsitting services!

I got Pete as a 15 month old rescue. He had no obedience training at all. The only thing he would do was sit after I said it about 5 times. Haywood was very patient with him and spent an extraordinary amount of time and effort to teach Pete everything he needed to know. He went out of his way to work with me both in my home and in groups to make my dog the happy, well-adjusted and well-behaved guy that he is today. There was a point where I wanted to give up and Haywood wouldn't let me. Thanks to him, Pete and I are very happy now! I can't thank Haywood enough.

The owner of PuppyLovin, Julie, is one awesome dog trainer and a wonderful person. My wife and I have been taking our German Shepherd to her for training, boarding, and day care for about a year and a half now. She has really been a godsend when it comes to dog training. Without her training, assistance, and consultation, we would have had our hands full with our GSD. I highly recommend PuppyLovin for all three of the services stated above. Julie will cater her services to the needs of your dog and develope comprehensive plan for your pet.

I have only had one lesson so far but already my dog has shown major improvement. Sharon worked with my dog wonderfully, she was attentive to his anxiety around people and by the end of the lesson he was in her lap giving kisses. When I ask for an appointment they are scheduled quickly and always within a few days. In between lessons I text her any questions I have and she always responds quickly. I am very happy with the training we are receiving! Would highly recommend.

I reached out to Mind Your Pawz for assistance with a rescue dog with fear based issues. Being a new human to this delicate dog I did not not have the confidence needed to get her past her fears. Angela gave me the tools, training and built the confidence needed within me to take allow my rescue to gain the social confidence she needed to enjoy a more fulfilled life. I have also used the boarding services provided by Mind Your Pawz. I highly recommend this loving and safe environment for your pet. I would not leave my dog anywhere else.

I just want to thank Sarka so much for helping us out with training our dog, Hnupka. We had a very difficult time coping with Hnupka before we decided to contact Sarka and ask her for her expert help. Sarka taught Hnupka basic obedience and helped him to socialize with other dogs, humans and daily busy city life. Sarka also showed us techniques on how to handle Hnupka ourselves, set his expectations, and build his respect for us in a humane and loving way so that he would obey. Hnupka is now a much more manageable part of our family. I would highly recommend Sarka as an obedience trainer. She loves dogs and they love her back. Linda

About

I give the best in care when you can't be there. I also teach them to be a good companion to you and you to them. When it is time for them to go, I offer support and guidance. I have made it my work to become a part of their lives in all aspects. I have now taken this one step further. I have become a vet tech, an ABC DT (certified dog trainer), and an animal shepherd. I can help with all phases of you and your companion's lives. I will watch them when you can't. I will show you both how to become well-trained partners.

About

I have worked in the Veterinary field for the past 4 years, in that time the majority of emergency patients came in because the patient got hit by a car, ate a foreign object, or was in a fight with another pet. Owners pay so much money to fix their now sick pet but all these things can be prevented by good training. Good training actually saves you money.
