We have boarded our dogs with Darci for over 5 years. We also have hired her for some personal dog training when we got a new puppy. Darci's professionalism is always present, and her ability to communicate with our dogs and train them effectively is remarkable! I would trust her completely to care for any animal I have and I highly recommend her services!

Lori is the best dog trainer that I know in Twin Cities! She is patient, and makes it fun, brings it to your home environment where the dogs are more relaxed. I also board my dog here as well. She is the cheapest, has better quality care for my dog than anyone I know. Best quality for the lowest price. She has trained my dog to be perfect! She bonds with the animals so well that they automatically listen to her, and even the most aggressive dogs aren't intimidated and will respond to her. I would recommend going to her before anyone else, you won't be disappointed. She cares about the people and the animals very much. My dog, Buddy, is a westie terrier and goes to doggy daycare here also. He gets along with everyone. Great!

Crystal has worked with all of our three Springer Spaniels. She took our puppy at 6 months and returned to us a beautifully trained, well rounded pet. She has also worked wonders with our other two dogs. Crystal love dogs and they love her! You will never find a kinder, more knowledgeable dog trainer! She is a wonderful person and a pleasure to watch her work with the dogs!

Mary has been walking, boarding, and training my dog Kaiser since he was 8 weeks old. He has turned into a well adjusted, well behaved adult in (very) large part because of her. He loves getting to spend time with her and all his other dog friends that she cares for. She also takes very good care of my cat Hobbes, and my elderly dog Ziggy before he passed. I don't know what we'd do without her!

Paul arrived and explained the Bark Busters training process to us. Skeptical that it could actually make a difference on the first day, we began the work. Not sure if our dog was overly tired or if she actually was learning a more submissive roll that first day, we were amazed at the changes we were already seeing! She was a totally different dog the next day and has been since. She has been amazingly responsive to the techniques and much more behaviorally appropriate. Although we are still learning the process, we see improvements in ourselves and our dog every single day. The Bark Busters Method really does work! Paul believes in what he is teaching and it's obvious in his work with dogs. We look forward to our future sessions with him.

Kristin Elmquist has been helping me build strong relationships with my dogs for nearly 5 years. I adopted Dexter, a mixed breed dog, in 2008. Shortly after his adoption, we started pet obedience classes with Kristin at For the Love of Dogs. The classes were informative, as well as fun! Not only was she immensely helpful in teaching pet obedience, she was a resource for students in answering questions regarding nutrition and potty training. It was not uncommon to have several students waiting after class to ask her questions. I knew training to be a lifelong project for us and I wasn't going to be happy with a lap-dog. Kristin introduced us to the sport of dog agility. What fun we have with this sport! We have been successfully competing in agility trials for several years. My second dog, Tesla, came home in July of 2010. Tesla has been a challenging dog for several reasons. Kristin has been able to provide us with resources to get the help he so desperately needes at the time. Tesla and I completed the pet obedience classes, similar to Dexter. However, Tesla's life journey has taken a detour around agility. Even so, Kristin has been able to offer him a training alternative in canine nose work. These classes allow him to continue training and exploring his environment in a well-controlled, safe method. Kristin's help and expertise has allowed Tesla to be more successful than I would have ever imagined. As an instructor, Kristin is extremely knowledgeable. She continues expanding her repertoire of training methods. She is a strong proponent of positive reinforcement training. In her classes, she really wants you to understand why you are doing something. Simply saying, "Do this," isn't good enough. This knowledge allows her students to take their training and apply it to real life situations.

My Wheaten Terrier Inara started classes with Jodee when I got her at 4 months old. Jodee was able to structure training specific to Inara's needs and abilities. Inara was a very smart and exuberant puppy but easily bored. So basic training with lots of repetition did not work for her. Jodee tailored classes to allow her to do more advanced skills in her puppy classes which allowed Inara to keep learning. Making things more of a challenge, Inara was not treat motivated, so Jodee's program of praise and positive reinforcement really helped Inara learn. Inara and I enjoyed our training so much that we continued classes for 5 years. We did classes from puppy to adult, good citizenship, agility and even tricks. People would chuckle and ask isn't your dog trained yet. Of course she was! But training became a social activity for Inara and her doggie friends. As well as for all the owners. Inara would still be doing training with Jodee if she hadn't passed away from a sudden illness. I will definitely be taking my next dog to work with Jodee. She has the ability to teach young puppies that learning is fun and help owners gain the knowledge and confidence to continue working with their dogs when away from classes. Jodee has helped dogs that are rescues as well as those who have been abused become happy well adjusted family members and working animals. If you are looking for a highly skilled positive trainer for your dog or puppy be sure to contact her.

If you are looking for a professional dog trainer, you have found that person in Jim Diem. Jim was knowledgeable, professional, flexible, and compassionate in helping our family with our challenges with our shelter dog. We were unprepared for a dog with fear aggression, and upon a happenstance meeting with Jim our lives changed dramatically. Jim worked with our dog and our family to improve the quality of our dog’s life, as well as enhance our understanding of how an informed owner should behave. Jim was not the first trainer we worked with. He is the only trainer we will work with now. We are indebted to Jim and his expertise for all he has done for us. Thanks Jim! Beth Hanssens + Family

I loved working with Katie. She is very experienced and loves bully breeds which isn't always the case with dog trainers. I worked with BAT training with my leash reactive pittie and she not only trained me on what to do, she gave me tons of ideas of what to do at home (realistic scenarios). She is also very positive. No negative dog training at all. Katie also will continue class even if most people don't show up so it feels like you get a lot of one on one time. I would definitely recommend Katie as a dog trainer.

Denise is one of the most dedicated professional trainers I have ever had the privilege of working with. She has helped me take my dog to levels I never thought were possible! I look forward to working with her in the future and seeing just how far and amazing my dog will become with her guidance and superior knowledge.

We couldn't be happier with the results of our dog’s training and the care given to her while she was in for training. She is doing great with her obedience on and off the field, we have complete control. I was also very impressed with Jeff’s Knowledge of training dogs; He truly has a gift and I would highly recommend him as a trainer.

I was having some behavior issues with my German Shepherd and wasn't sure who to turn to. We left him with Troy for a week (I was SO NERVOUS, I've never been away from my dog) and I was stunned at what a great dog we got back. Not only was his behavior much improved, but Troy gave us some grooming tips (he came back bathed and with nails clipped!!), but Troy worked with us for hours to show us how to get the behavior we were looking for. I'm very nervous about leaving my dog with ANYONE. I wouldn't hesitate to bring my dog to Troy again in a heartbeat. If you have a dog that has even serious behavior problems, believe me, you've found the master. Will never leave my dog with anyone else again besides TROY!
