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!

Ryan and Milo did a great job with our German shepherd. They handled every situation with our dog well, even when he was being difficult. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of dog training.

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.

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!

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

Kristine took care of our German Shepard, Dio, for an extended period over the holidays. Kristine took care of Dio as if she was her own. Daily walks and trips to the dog park were just some of the ways Kristine ensured our dog stayed healthy and happy. Kristine was professional but also warm and easy to talk to and it made the tough part of leaving a loved pet behind so much easier. We will definitely call on Kristine for any future pet sitting needs and we highly recommend her to anyone seeking a dependable and skilled caregiver.

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.

Jeff did an excellent job with my dog Mac. I visited several trainers and what he achieved with him in eight weeks others said was impossible. they said I should just keep him as a house pet and buy another dog. What he can get a dog to do is amazing and because of him, Mac is now a house pet who loves to hunt, retrieve and swim. I couldn't ask for a better dog.

I have worked as a dolphin trainer for six years where I have used the operant conditioning method of training. My wife is a veterinarian, and we have five dogs together. They learned a lot of bad habits from her but have been way better since I started working with them.
