I am just getting into training my dog, but what I am impressed with so far is her patience and kindness with the trainers as well as the dogs.

Susan was great! Kodi our mini goldendoodle puppy loved the training. She is very professional and knows what she is talking about. She takes the time to go over the food you have and treats to make sure they are good for your dog. You can tell she loves all dogs and uses positive reinforcement to train. She encouraged us on what we already had done training wise and what we needed to correct/work on. If you need a trainer, stop researching and call Susan! You will not be disappointed. She is very responsive to get back to you.

Truly amazing! Within minutes of entering our house for the first time Beth had our puppy intent and listening to her. She tailored Sadie's training specifically to her, giving us tons of advise, and a clear path to take to keep our dog learning as she grows. After Beth left at that first visit, Sadie laid on the rug at the front door waiting for her to come back. That says it all!

Had an out of the country trip and needed a solid trainer/boarding while we were away. After about two minutes on the phone with Anna I knew I had found my trainer. I took my dobie pup out to check out her place and meet with her and even after one 5 min session I could see a difference in our dog's demeanor. Whether it's basic obedience and house manners or schutszhund training, Anna is a no nonsense gal who gets it done right in a fun and positive atmosphere. I was worried sick when we dropped off our pup because we'd essentially spoiled her and made her an overgrown baby! lol. By the time we got back she was bigger and happier than before because she had a JOB and was having a blast doing it! I cannot recommend Anna enough and can't wait to head back for more lessons and more bootcamps. Our dog had a great time and we felt good knowing she was in capable hands. Thank you Anna, you're life saver!!

I don't even have words for how fantastic Clever Canine is. I am so incredibly grateful to them, they've changed everything about the way I communicate with my dogs. I have three big pups, all 3 or younger, and each with A LOT of personality. Mandy, Lizzie, and Emma had my deaf Australian Shepherd (who used to be afraid of people) eating out of their hand within minutes, even letting Emma scratch him on the head. All three are incredibly knowledgeable on obedience training, and my Anatolian Shepherd and Lab are jumping out of the car to see them. Mandy is an expert, and a wealth of knowledge for anyone who wants to learn. She goes out of her way to make scheduling work, takes a sincere interest in getting to know your dogs, and takes the time to create a plan that will work for YOU, no cookie cutter answers. They are even willing to take dogs into their own home for stay and train, then carefully go through all of the new commands and routines your dog has become accustomed to once they're done. I am confident she can solve any problem I'm having, including some dog aggression to others not in the pack. Emma is an Aussie whisperer, I COULD NOT believe he was sitting at her feet and looking her in the eyes within a few minutes of walking in the door. Lizzie is master of agility training, in just one session she had my dog through half of the obstacles. These are professionals, people, with kind hearts and sincere resolve to help you fix whatever problem you may have, for both you and your dog. The service they provide is unparalleled, and I couldn't be happier I went with my instincts on a family-run business instead of a chain. I will be working with them as long as I have any questions (they also do nose work and other sports). I am so, so grateful to have found Clever Canine. They saved my sanity with my dogs and are helping us ENJOY each other's company while constantly learning and advancing. Thank you so much for your time, team. I recommend them to everyone I know.

I cannot express how happy I am with the care and service provided by Claudia Ann and Berkshire Meadows. She went above and beyond each day, not only pottying my dogs, but ensuring they got enough exercise and water, training our puppy and providing them mid-day love. Her pricing was extremely fair and I felt the value was exceptional. She also was sure to follow up via text anytime she had a question or suggestion for our dogs, and always responded promptly to any of my questions. I am beyond pleased with my experience and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable and loving caregiver for their dogs!

I used the immersion training as I had two female dogs, 7 and 3, that had their first fight a year ago, followed by one a few months later, then about six months after that two fights, one severe enough to have two bloody dogs. I knew I needed some serious help, and after talking with their trainers, we chose this option. The change when they got home was very noticeable. It wasn't the idea of correcting the dogs when aggression was shown, but redirecting their heads to acceptable behavior. The added benefit of the dogs heeling nicely, and the other commands taught is good. ,

We adopted a dog from K9 Petz and we had an awesome experience! I worked with Randi exclusively and she was so great to work with...Lots of communication back and forth, very informative and explained what was required of us and what our new family member, Vinnie, needed in a home. She kept me informed every step of the process, allowed me to visit Vinnie several times, including visiting with our dog and kids to make sure everyone got along well. Randi was very up front about what was expected of us. I had an amazing experience adopting our Vinnie from K9 Petz and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to expand their family with a new pet!! We couldn't be happier!

When I have questions Dogology is quick to anwser! They give me great tips on how to control my pup! From techniques to walking when pup was playing tug of war with the leash, which by the way she hasn't done in weeks! Such a great walker now! When they do there lunch videos on different topics you learn so much! Even when you think you might know what they are about to say boom learned something new! Such as the video with retracable leashes... I never thought about what if your dog wanted to run after another dog or ran to the road and stop button failed? Now you have 12 feet of leash going everywhere. What do you do? I wasnt a fan of them anyway but still learned something new and can pass to friends and family about the danger. The training tips are not your normal pet shop teaching that at times I believe is not right or cruel. Dogology teaches you how to politely train and teach your dog in a manner your dog is not going to be frightened by you or harm them. Dogology not only has great tips and training but there is also military background so right away you will have the professionalism and background any customer deserves! I have recommended Dogology to many people! They can personally help train your pup and/or give you tips and tricks on how to if your training on your own.

Bonny is very knowledgeable and experienced and you can tell she loves dogs. She gave me very thorough instruction on training my dog. She is patient and understanding and knows that every dog is different and she tailors her lessons based on the dog and myself. I would hire her again in a minute - highly recommended!

About

At 16 Legs, we specialize in dog training. The name came from my wife. I fell in love with a great girl who had two not-so-great dogs! When we added my American pitbull terrier to the mix, we were in for a treat. Through educating myself and with a lot of hard work, we all live in harmony! I have since help as many people as I can with their dogs. I prefer working with strong-breed dogs and got my start with dog-on-dog aggression. Since then, we have helped many dogs in many different situations. I hope to hear from you!
