Vicky went above and beyond to help me train our new dog and my family. To train our dog to be around d other dogs, she brought her own dogs to the training session! That really helped me and made a big difference! She was very responsive over emails throughout the session and responded to my questions/concerns over email within few hours. She adjusted the training to suit my specific needs. Will definitely recommend to friends.

I had a 9 year old dog who had not been through any training since he was a pup. I was unsure how to go about "re-training" him. Lara was great and got the situation quickly corrected.

I couldn't be happier with the training that we've received from Social Tailwaggers. Jodie, our trainer. is so patient and very knowledgeable. The first time we met, we discussed what training I was interested in and what goals we were trying to achieve for my dog, Cooper. Cooper was around 10-11 months old when we began our first training session. She immediately began to introduce new skills and commands to work on training Cooper. After each lesson, Jodie sends a detailed email outlining all of the skills we worked on and suggestions to help with practicing on my own. Jodie was also helpful with recommendations on types of toys and feeding bowls to help with the energy level of my dog. I would highly recommend Social Tailwaggers to anyone who needs help training a new puppy or an older dog. It is well worth the time, money and effort to have a well trained dog and not only are you going to have a well trained, better behaved dog, it's also a lot of fun time spent with your dog.

Haywood and his team are true professionals in the dog training world. They are superb in helping any dog, of any age or behavior, become better mannered, and safer to have in public. They understand dogs, and translate that expertise into practical, effective training programs for both the owners and the dogs. The important aspect is the owner is trained to reinforce the new behaviors. Haywood ensures that basic commands are learned by both dog and owner before they leave his care. Once you meet Haywood and his team, you won't go anywhere else. We did the the dog day care program, and we're heading back for more advanced training in the Fall. We've gone from being afraid to take our reactive dog out for walks, to being confident and comfortable walking anywhere thanks to the folks at Academy Dog Training.

We've had two sessions with Maxine (an initial 3 hour visit and an hour long follow up visit) and couldn't be happier. We took in a 3 year old lab/beagle mix named Hamish about two months ago and needed some help with basic obedience training and also some specific problems: nuisance barking, pulling on the leash, and some occasional guarding behavior. After just one session, we were able to communicate much more effectively with Hamish and his problem behaviors lessened. And the extra guidance we got at our follow up session today has already proven extremely useful. Hamish used to bark and bark at passersby and not heed any of our efforts to quiet him. Now he barks less frequently and when he does we're able to get his attention and he stops. His recall has also improved dramatically. Overall, he's also much calmer - it's obvious he feels more comfortable now that he understands our respective roles and what's expected of him. We feel fully supported by Maxine and highly recommend her services.

We could not have been more pleased with our dog training with Canine Curriculum. Annmarie is kind, experienced and very organized. We have a large family and a large dog, and she was extremely patient with all of us. She took our suggestions and made a "curriculum" for us so we knew what to expect for every session.

Sarah is awesome. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about dogs and their training. She is patient and explained what we needed to do and why. We can't thank her enough for turning our out of control Lab in to a fantastic family pet.

It has only been a couple days since my inital meeting with Sharon but the leash tugging has substatially reduced! My dog and I have some new items to continue working on but the snowstorm today has put a small crimp in our plans. Regardless, we'll do some fun indoor stuff. Highly recommend Bark Busters and Sharon (she 100% understands how to read your dog *and* translate to you so you can begin to learn how to be the leader/owner the dog needs). I cannot overstate the importance of the tools you, as the dog owner, need and will gain through connecting eith BarkBusters. Sharon is an excellent instructor and guide, with great timing and considerable experience!

Attended group training sessions for my 3 month old chocolate Lab 'George' and 2 of his brothers, 'Harley' and 'Gibbs'. Through all of the trainings sessions Paul was able to calmly and efficiently control the 'chaos' of 3 rambunctious puppies and actually teach them (and their humans) many useful things. Having Paul as a teacher/instructor for the dogs was like having a trusted family friend sharing the wisdom he acquired over years of working with many dogs and their owners. Paul is an excellent teacher and is intelligent, friendly, and very 'approachable'. Pawsitive Paul's Dog Training is absolutely outstanding!

We have been with Spoiled Paws for almost 9 years now. It is worth having her stop by the house to let my dog out and enjoy the sun for some time during the day. Caroline does a great job with our dog.

Mr. Anthony arrived 15 mins early and immediately got to work with my dog. He was extremely professional and well knowledgeable about dogs. He was able to walk my family and I through the entire process of training ourselves and training our dog. I loved his energy and warm spirit. With all that he taught us on how to train our dog I know we’re looking towards a brighter future for our family. Our baby Dice is already getting the hang of the training. He’s so excited to learn. Thank you Anthony for all of your help and knowledge I will DEFINITELY be passing your Information off to other pet lovers.

I was a little nervous about sending my puppy away for puppy camp but Jessica made it so easy. We were in touch multiple times a day, my dog had THE BEST time and came out of it no longer afraid of people and other dogs. At a small gathering of friends the other night, I beamed with pride as my friends described her as just "loving everyone." This is in part because she learned socialization early and it's easier for her to bond and trust (and learn!) Thank you Jessica!

I have a 5 year old, 85 pound pit bull/boxer mix named Bella, who is as sweet as they come, but she was a beast on the leash....pulling and choking herself making walks really unpleasant for everyone. We tried many different things with her, but nothing seemed to be working. We had Kristy over for 1 hour for training. She gave us some new tools to work with and some new techniques and literally I was able to walk her within 15 minutes!! She is like a new dog, and we are BOTH loving the walks together. I HIGHLY recommend Kristy for any dog training that you need. She is fantastic!!!
