Lisa came to our home because I contacted her regarding our Chocolate Lab and possible aggression issues. She gave us great tools for working with him. It is easy to see she has a love for dogs and really knows how to connect with them. We are very fortunate to have found Lisa and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing any help training their dog. After just one session we can already see a positive change. We must continue the work, but look forward to a happy future with our dog.
Anna has been absolutely amazing! She is so understanding and so realistic about training. My dog has only been with her a little over a week and she has kept in great contact with me about his improvements. Highly recommend her service! Not only a great trainer but just a very reasonable person :)
Beth's training methods made the world of difference in our relationship with our puppy. Training became fun for both dog and owners. We purchased several copies of Beth's book as gifts for family and friends who live out of the area, because we thought their dogs would appreciate enlightened owners as much as ours does!
This will be on going training for my Pup...Jessica quickly identified what was needed and saw and made me aware of some behavior issues but put me on the right track. Cant wait till the next session :-)
Jesse is not only nice and easy to talk to, she makes her training techniques easy to understand. She obviously knows and loves dogs. I trust her with my puppies training. Am very happy.
Excellent and caring sitter for our 8 week old puppy, very happy with the first time.
Sit Means Sit changed our life!! 2 years ago we purchased an American Bull dog puppy who we thought would be a bundle of fun. I never thought such a sweet face would turn out to be a nightmare. Not only did she try to attack my little dog she also was just to out of control and strong to manage. I met Nick at a previous office I worked at and called him right up. They came out and I sent Bella away for 1 week and that's all it took for them to transform her into what we expected from her. The trainers have been nothing but a blessing and I tell everyone how amazing Sit Means Sit is. We will never have another dog without them. Its the best feeling in the world to have everyone tell me how well behaved my puppy is. My husband and I only use the best! Thank u Sit Means Sit!
We have just begun puppy training but came away knowing this was a very positive experience for both the dogs and their owners. They let the puppies teach each other. What a concept! Amazing how well that works. There are several trainers around to help direct and instruct. We definitely recommend Clever Canine Dog Training.
We have a Great Dane puppy and when she was about 6 to 7 months old she started to display some rough/mildly agressive behavior. We tried other training methods, but our Vet recommended Dave at K9. After an evaluation our puppy started 2 weeks of behavior training. The difference was amazing, we are very happy with the results. Our puppy is now 18 months old and just under 100 lbs and we have continued with K 9 for daycare. She loves the people at K9 and the socialization with the other dogs.
Patty is awesome! She gave us the tools and knowledge to start raising a happy and healthy pup. What we've learned is that dog training is more about human training. Patty gives you all the tools and then it's up to you and your family to implement these practices into your everyday interaction with your furry friend. Our pup Yoshi is happier! We can really see the difference since Patty came into the picture.
Linda Morin is such a blessing to my whole family. My husband wanted a boxer for our anniversary. I knew nothing about the breed except that they needed to have obedience training. Linda educated not just myself but my whole family on the behavior of the breed along with the proper training that our dog required. Working with her was absolutely wonderful, especially when I could see the progress not just with our boxer Rocky, but also with my kids as they also learned how to properly work the dog. The looks on their faces when they realized they could do it too was wonderful. Linda took the time to make sure we were doing everything correctly and that our boxer Rocky was progressing as well. I loved the personal touch she put into every training class. When she felt like we were ready, she invited us to start working in group classes. Wow what an experience to see her command a group of owners and dogs to process commands. It was quite amazing how she was able to control the whole class, while also giving personal attention to different individuals. She was also able to help us address a few problems we were having with our boxer. For example our boxer Rocky liked to jump on people when they would come to the house. She showed us how to stop that behavior. Linda Morin I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for not only showing us how to properly handle Rocky, but also for educating us on the breed. What you have done for us is priceless. Because of you I will always have a boxer in my life. Thank you so much. Mikki Vinton
Before I contacted K9AdvantEDGE I was at my wits end with my family dog. She was having such issues focusing and following commands. After her 2 week board and train with Tyler and Esther, Rooney was a completely different dog. I'm so pleased with the amount the two of them taught her. She is now one of the best behaving dogs in our neighborhood! If I ever get another dog they are the trainers I will be going back to!
Chelsea picked up my dog and trained her for 30 days. My dog came back like a different girl! She has a true love for what she does and I felt like our girl was in great hands! So glad we chose Sidekicks!
Friendly on the phone, Scheduled classes in the future, gave me a competitors name who will work with my young puppy until he's old enough for them. Thats how you get a customer
Mr. Cooper explained what we would be receiving with the dog training sessions.
Patty's trained both my dogs and they adore her, she has a wonderful way with animals. I would definitely recommend her.
I am a licensed Veterinary technician that spends time with animals all day. Your furry loved one could not be in better hands!

Have fun team building with your canine partner! With Debbie, you can have fun learning: - Foundations/fundamentals for agility teamwork - Agility sequencing/handling (all levels) - Specialized agility skill classes (learning and mastery) - Fundamentals for obedience (puppies and adult dogs) - Rally obedience Training philosophy: Debbie believes that relationship value and relationship building are key building blocks in a solid training program. Her goal is to build a dog/handler team (with her own dogs and for her students) that is confident, communicating, connected and collaborative (synergized!). This is achieved via positive reinforcement training and techniques coupled with motivation/drive, enthusiasm, understanding, clarification and most of all, fun. This leads to a well-connected partnership between you and your dog.
