Dave Cochran of Show Me YOUR Dog Training helped our foster dog Hailey work on her poor socialization skills with other dogs. Hailey had a few sessions at Dave's site with his dogs, and has been a pleasure to work with since. The other fosters in the rescue have all been commenting on how much better her behaviour has been at adoption events, which is so important in finding a home for her. Dave makes sure to tailor his approach for each of his clients to maximize the value the client receives for time and resources spent. I will definitely be recommending Show Me YOUR Dog Training to anyone looking for help with their dog!

So far, I am beyond impressed with Virginia’s dog training skills. If our dog not improve it will be entirely on us for not doing our homework. Even after the consultation we saw an improvement: it was as though she’d sat down with our dog and had a conversation about what we wanted from him and he said “ Oh, I wish I had known! You never told me before. “ Highly recommend Gray House Dog training!

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.

Our journey with Knucklehead K9 Services and Tony Bly started this past summer. We adopted a 3 year old German Shepherd in December, 2016. Soon after, I enrolled him in a local obedience dog training facility; however, we were noticing increasing reactivity issues, and it soon became apparent that they were not equipped to help us and we were asked not to return. He would react to people, dogs, bicycles, horses, etc. and his world became confined to our back yard. Thankfully, we were referred to Tony and after several conversations with him and an initial meeting, we signed up for the six week E Collar training course. I could see substantial improvement even after the first lesson and now a whole world has opened to us. I walk him mostly without a leash now and have even taken him to the stable where I ride and work. This program has made him calmer and so much happier as it has succeeded in dealing with his anxieties and reactive behavior. Tony did a good job of keeping me on track and helping us meet our goals. I would highly recommend his services if you have been unsuccessful with traditional methods and you have a strong-willed dog with reactive or anxiety issues. Thank you,Tony.

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!

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!

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 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.

Academy Dog Training We moved to the DC area in March of 2015. When our eight year old lab mix, Tsali went after the exterminator, I had enough of the inability to trust the love of our family. After some research, I found Haywood at Academy Dog Training. He met with me and our dog and listened to my concerns, asked detailed questions about our dog’s history, and the goals I had for her upon training completion. He was open, honest and a great listener to concerns and finding solutions. Throughout training, we noticed a significant improvement in her listening, understanding and following commands. Her ability to adapt around other dogs has improved tremendously and we learned so much about her that our life is much easier after her training. I would highly recommend Haywood at Academy Dog Training. We plan to adopt another dog in the future and Haywood is who we will contact!
