Steve did a great job in not only training my dog but training me to understand the reasoning behind everything. He made sure I knew why we did something and how to correct my dog's actions if necessary. Steve was very informative and helpful and made it known he's only a phone call away if I need assistance on something or have a quick question.

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.

Jay of Canine Dominion is more than just the best dog trainer ever. Once you hire him, it's as if he's become a member of your family -- a really smart, experienced, savvy member of your family who's truly invested in the successful training of your dog. He stands behind his dog training 100% too -- willing to provide additional sessions if needed at no additional charge. Jay brings amazing skills plus integrity to boot. Now if only I could find an auto mechanic version of Jay. ;-)

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 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 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.

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!

Jane took care of our FIVE little fur-bearing family members while we were away for a week. She is by far the best pet-sitter we have ever had! She started with an initial meeting in our home, which was incredibly thorough. It's clear she has a real love for and understanding of dogs, and real skill handling behavioral issues with pets. It's also clear now that we've had her support that the full range of services she offers is delivered with the same gentle, insightful, and steady care that every pet owner wants for their four-legged loved ones. She also retrieved our mail and made sure the house was safe while we were away--a real bonus! Jane provides daily written updates, which were incredibly helpful (she also identified an issue with our bathroom ceiling that would have taken us a few days to notice after we came back). She even found our shy guy, Skinner, every day, even though he is very good at hiding from strangers! We returned home to a happy, snuggly, healthy menagerie that had been expertly cared for. It was such a comfort knowing we had reliable, thoughtful care while we were away. We'll definitely reach out to Jane again the next time we're out of town. Strong endorsements from both of us humans and our furry five-some!

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.

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.

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!!!
