We just started training with Shahar and she's been wonderful. She has a great amount of resources and takes time to explain why dogs have certain behaviors and how to properly correct them. We're very excited to see how our dog continues to progress with her help!

Ryan was excellent in helping me train our dog Archie! He corrected me on my training and helped us with training aspects we could work on at home! Definitely recommend any with a bigger dog to go with K9SF for their training. Ryan is very knowledgeable and great with the dogs!!

Rita was a perfect fit for us in her approach to training our puppy, George. She has given us so much valuable advice. We will continue to tap into her expertise even after our sessions are completed.

Lori Brown of Browns Dog Training, is a very unconventional trainer. Lori devotes her entire day and home to the animals she trains, boards, provides day care for and clearly is fulfilling her passion to animals. Our Hunter, loved staying with Lori for two weeks and was still happy to see us when we came to pick him up. Believe me, Lori is an excellent trainer and so passionate about her four legged family. I suggest you at least meet Lori. She is unconventional but fantastic with dogs. We will bring Hunter back just so he can see Lori again.

I spent a lot of time researching various options for my corgi puppy when I found out I was going to be in Europe for 4 weeks. I looked into various boot camps, board and train facilities, as well as asking relatives to look after my Kirby. When I came across Crystal's website, I immediately contacted her and arranged a meeting. Right off the bat she was extremely responsive, kind, professional, and demonstrated a wealth of knowledge about dogs and canine psychology. I could also tell that she and her husband really cared and loved all of the dogs that stayed with them and I knew in my gut that I could trust them. My instincts proved right when Crystal brought back an unbelievably well-trained Kirby at the conclusion of camp. What was once a nippy, sassy pup who was impossible to walk, became a well-behaved puppy who will not even graze her teeth on my skin and walks RIGHT next to me whenever she is on a leash. Kirby also learned how to do "place," an extremely useful command where she stays in one place until I let her free, along with other basic commands like "sit" and "down." One thing that really distinguishes Crystal's program from others is the fact that Crystal and another trainer Katie personally came to my house to drop off Kirby at the end of camp and went through a detailed "go home session" showing me everything they taught Kirby, their training methods, and how to best follow up to ensure that her training continues beyond camp. I was really impressed with everything they showed me, and the follow up techniques have been working well. Overall I would rate Crystal's training program a 10/10. I am grateful for how much progress Kirby made and how flexible Crystal was with me when I had to keep changing the dates that Kirby was to be at camp. Thank you Crystal, Riley, and Katie for everything you did for Kirby!

Sally is AMAZING! She is very accommodating in her schedule. She is very patient with the process, especially with the owner (me) who needs more training than my fur baby! Thank you, Sally for giving me the tools to enjoy my sweet Belle even more!

I hired Lindsay to work with my dog, Rocky, on basic obedience. He was very territorial of parts of the house and needed work with some basic commands. Lindsay showed me how to communicate better with Rocky. I now know what he needs from me in order to feel safe and this has had a huge impact on his behavior. Lindsay uses positive reinforcement and counter-conditioning. She keeps the dog feeling safe and positive, showing him what he should be doing instead of what he should not be doing. She uses treats to get her points across to the dog. She does not use bark or shock collars or anything that would make the dog feel uncomfortable. I am very happy with my experience so far, and will continue using Kinney K9 Academy.

I met Denise through my vet when looking for a puppy. The timing for a puppy was not in the cards at that time, however, we kept in touch. We are now training together with my first working line soon to be one year old female GSD. Denise has been a wealth of knowledge and is a wonderful trainer. Phone calls and/or messages of any kind are returned in a timely fashion and a professional manner. She is very patient and explains things well and I need this given this is my first go round at training. We had worked with another trainer for a short period of time and that wasn't working well for us. Am glad for that because it landed us at Denise's door. I would not hesitate recommending Denise for any breeding and/or training needs. We are beyond pleased with the services we are getting.

Sammi always does a great job taking care of the huge menagerie that we have. She's flexible and is easy to work with (and puts up with all the changing and long-winded instructions I leave). The animals all love her. She leaves great notes about how things went while we were gone. We've been using her for years and love her.

We offer in-home, group, and semi-private dog training. We cover obedience, behavior modifications, and problem behaviors. Certified by several organizations and having years of experience, PLB uses the latest techniques to improve your dog's behavior and generate a solid relationship between you and your dog.

About

I am a certified dog trainer, and I use only positive training methods. The clicker/reward is a great fun way to work with a dog! Being a good leader versus using dominance or pack leader is more productive and teachable. I also have a dog rescue and work with problems that rescues sometimes bring with them. I am a support system during any training process.

About

For my experience my fees are very fair. I do one on ones and teach classes.

About

I am a Minneapolis/St. Paul based dog trainer. I am here to create positive changes in your dog and your home by using all positive training to train obedience and behavior problems. I teach the dogs what to do, rather than what not to do, and help you communicate better with your dog, and help your dog become your friend.

I will help you train your pup or dog to be the best dog he/she can be! I will get to know your dog on a personal level and learn its twerks and kinks. Knowing the dog's personality is the first step I take before I begin his/her training. Every dog is different. Some may take longer than others to train. If you are not satisfied with my work then don't be afraid to let me know, and I'll give you your money back.
