About

Jerrie went out of her way to accommodate us and took time to come meet us so that we felt comfortable for our first time. I have two young pups and training can be a challenge, she is knowledgeable, patient and kind. We also needed someone on short notice and she came through for us, we will definitely use her again!

About

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!

We had our doubts about the training but after our first 4 lessons we are moving on to the theropy dog training. Our Shepherd/Hound Mix was extremely shy and withdrawn and knew few commands. He now proforms the commands outside under distraction but the most surprising change was his increase in confidence. From running away from everyone to laying at my feet and allowing visitors to pet him he is a new dog. Thanks Cassie!

Brittny and Stella do a remarkable job of training dog owners. I have taken her class and had a private in-home lesson. Remarkable difference in how our dog behaves.

About

I'm a professional certified dog trainer. My special niche is understanding the human and the canine, tailoring my training to each family situation with their dog. I take a lot of time to learn who the dog is, who the family is, and what the needs of the family and the dog are. I realize that each dog is a unique individual and will need an individualized training/treatment program. My previous work life was as a recruiter, so I understand the people side of dog training as well as the science of canine behaviors and how to create a bond between the human and the dog. A good dog trainer, I believe, understands both human and canine behaviors and needs. I've worked with many families with children and am excellent at integrating the children into the training program for their dog.

Jessica has taken care of my two dogs (German Shorthair Pointer and Goldendoodle) for over five years. She has done everything for me: Dog walking, let outs, feeding, sitting, medication...you name it. The dogs adore her and go absolutely nuts every time she comes over! I trust her implicitly with both my dogs and my home. Her communication and availability has been excellent. If you are looking for a person who will love you pet as much (or more) than you do....she is the perfect person for the job!

For the Home based business this person struck me as very knowledgeable and knew what I needed with Tyler. As we spoke she was professional, direct, and straight to the point on the training process. Tyler is doing well and she has sent pictures with my shepherd in with other dogs. Great and I appreciated her persistence.

About

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.

I am over the moon with the quality of care I have received from Alex and Marea. They are professional, dependable, reliable and take great care with my three dogs. They feed and walk my dogs Mon-Fri.. transport them to daycare when requested and contact me with concerns or suggestions, which I greatly appreciate.. I could not ask for more. They are very kind, friendly and loving people.

Johnny and Amber have taken care of my two labs for over two years. I interviewed three fine services but the bottom line was that my black lab, my only dog at the time, chose Johnny and Amber. During our first meeting Griz sat between them the entire time and we all agreed caring for Griz would be a good thing for all concerned. Almost two years ago I added a second lab to the family. Amber and Johnny worked with me to understand what training I was doing with him, issues, commands, etc. Their care and attention to helping develop my puppy will always be greatly appreciated. I don't take the care of my dogs lightly. My dogs are part of my family and Amber and Johnny know that. They are dog lovers, extremely professional and always friendly in every aspect of the services they provide. They're great.
