I spoke with a handful of dog trainers and I felt the most connection with Shahar. So I hired her : ) We talked on the phone about the behaviors and set up our first training session. She came to our home and was very personable and professional. From our conversation on the phone, she pretty much already knew what corrective training we would work on, therefore, we didn't spend most of the time talking and got a nice portion of the time doing the actual training. It will be tough for all of us as we are about to flip our pups life upside down but Shahar assured me that he will be much happier this way. I will be working with Shahar on follow up trainings until our pups behavior issues has been corrected!

Working with Rita has been a phenomenal experience. She is professional, knowledgeable, but more than that she is an excellent instructor. You explain what you need and she has a resolution. Rita makes training easy. She makes sure you know how to work with your dog. Her hands on training gives you the knowledge and confidence to continue training. Both you and your dog will benefit from working with Rita. It’s reward based and fun. Don’t worry if you’re not getting it Rita is a phone call away. Her time with you is not just a schedule and we’ll talk about it on your next visit. She is there in between to guide you. I can not say enough about this remarkable woman and Canine Revival.

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!

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.

We hired Mandy to come to our home for a dog training session to work with our Chihuahua Boston mix, who is unpredictably aggressive to people and dogs. She was flexible with our schedule. She asked all of the right questions to fully understand our dog, and was great at reading his body language to get to the core reason for his behavior. We've been following her advice and have seen improvement in just a few days, and looking forward to continuing to teach him some better manners! Overall our experience was excellent, we highly recommend Mandy at Terra Paws.

Dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, caring, and maybe part K-9. I couldn't recommend a better trainer for your dog not matter if the task is big or small. I have worked with her for over 4 years with many dogs and situations. She has personally trainer 2 of my dogs. One from a puppy and another we had behavioral issues with who is stubborn. She took on both tasks with full dedication and heart. Can not recommend enough!

This was our first time working with a dog trainer and Crystal exceeded our expectations! She taught us a few techniques to keep our 7-month old puppy from jumping on us and others and it seems to really work! She also gave us some great tips on types of toys that would keep him busy and stimulated. She was extremely helpful at explaining to us why our dog was behaving in certain way and showing us techniques we can use to lower his energy level. We will definitely be recommending her to others!

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

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!

Cheryl is absolutely fantastic. She was patient and kind with my dog as well as me. I have a rescue dog from a puppy mill and after two months I never saw my dog she hid all the time and i was at the point of wondering if anything could be done. I called Cheryl and she reassured me and made an appointment to come out quicker than I ever thought. When she came over she gave my dog the personal attention i couldn't get from the books and experience. It's one month later and my shy little dog had completely changed. She wags her tail jumps on the couch and even likes to be pet. Any time i have a question I can still always write or call Cheryl and she promptly responds each time. she came to our aide again and made it possible for me to keep my dog . It was obvious she cared about each specific person and animal and it is much more than just a job to her. When i was laid off She is a life saver. My dog is my life and thanks to her now we are sharing our lives together.

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.

John Ketzner played a key role in the development of my dog and myself as a dog handler. John presented me with the tools and techniques necessary to be successful, then helped me perfect and tune these skills to make them work for me. John takes an individual based approach to dog training, realizing that not all dogs nor handlers are alike. His genuine care for the well-being of the animals shows in the rapport and relationships he develops while working with them.

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 and her team of trainers at For the Love of Dogs did a fantastic job teaching us how to training our Britney Spaniel (Maya) to go from an unruly ball of energy, to a loving, family pet. During our vacations, Kristin boarded Maya and provided a friendly stay in the evenings, and in-depth training during the day (who knew dogs could run on a treadmill?). She readily answers questions on follow ups post classes or stays. Thanks Kristin!

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.
