Mark was kind enough to help us out at the very last minute. He set out mind at ease and took great care of our three shepherds!

I encourage the dog to volunteer "good behaviors" and teach your dog manners. While helping you understand why your dog does the unwanted behaviors. I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer. I only use compulsion if absolutely necessary. Which means my process takes longer but also last the dogs entire life. I love dogs and watching the lines of communication open up between dog and owner.

We offer several packages that will fill your dog training needs. We train any breed, any size and any age in Columbia. What separates us from other dog trainers in the area is we do not only teach your dog commands, but we also give you an off-leash dog that responds with military/law enforcement K9 speed and precision. We have experience working with dogs from numerous military and law enforcement agencies, and we train your dog the same way that we train theirs. Also, our lessons are all private and one-on-one, which means you and your dog get our undivided attention. Do not worry, you get trained also.

We listen to you and design training plans to fit your unique situation. We use training that works, has been studied by animal behaviorists, and make sure our methods are based in reality. We also train, live with, and work our own extremely energetic search and rescue dogs. Jennifer has been training animals since 1998. Watching that light behind a dog owner's eye illuminate when they have a breakthrough of course followed by a very happy dog.

My work stands out not only because I'm extremely passionate about what I do. I personally develop ciricullum for each client individually. I stay on top of current learning theories and scientific data to back my teachings! I'm even on listserv's that provide avid discussions among trainers in my field. I'll go that extra mile to make sure you are 100% satisfied. In fact I guarantee my work - if you don't see any improvement or progress in your dog whatsoever...I'll refund your money 100%! I love a challenge... If your training or behavioral case is a challenge, or your schedule is something your worried about my background in customer experience and loyalty cannot be matched. The best feeling in the world is that "aha" moment everybody always has... For me with my four week curriculums I feel it usually comes at about the two week mark! A close second would be seeing owner and dog live harmoniously under one roof, that previously struggled greatly. Behavior cases are my natural high, but either way if you want your dog trained right the first time around... Choose Terrific Dogs LLC!

In the years I have spent both walking dogs and hiring walkers for another company I have come to appreciate that my particular qualities and skill set are rare and valuable in this line of work. I am detail oriented, great with all kinds of dogs and other animals, good with people, respect others' property and take responsible care of it. I am able to socialize shy and aggressive dogs. I truly care about each pet I am responsible for and I understand how important adequate exercise is for most dogs and am sure to give them the amount of exercise my client and I have agreed upon. I care about your dogs safety and therefore do not walk dogs off leash nor in most cases do I introduce them to dogs I am not personally acquainted with whom are outside of our pack. If you sign up for the longer group hikes I keep the number to a manageable size so that I can give your pet the attention he or she needs. I am confident that your animals and your home will be in good hands with me. I LOVE dogs and really all animals. And I love being outside. AND I love exercise! So this really is the perfect job for me. What I love most is hikes in the woods and being with dogs makes it even better!
