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!!
Darci came over to my home to do some training in my dog’s environment to address some specific things I wanted to work on. Not only was she wonderful with my dog, she explained things to me to ensure I could continue working on the training in the days to come. I would highly recommend Darci for any training needs - she is patient, knowledgeable and (most important to me) gentle with my pup! :-)
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 at Brown's Dog Training, Lodging, and More was FANTASTIC! Our Pitbull lab turned one when he was with Lori. He chewed on everything, including us - jumped on everyone, pulled us along as we tried to walk him, and chewed through more wires than I thought was possible. He was very loving though which lead me on a hunt for a dog trainer! Lori texted me and answered all my questions as fast as she could while running a business. We went to her house and met with her when we dropped Norbert, our one year old dog, off. She made promises to us, and frankly, I didn't think it would be possible to turn this destructive dog around. A few weeks later - she gave us a call and said it was time for Norbert to come home. We met her outside and she got Norbert out of her car (yes - she transports!!) He didn't jump, he didn't pull, and I thought, "Anyone can be good for a few minutes." She came inside for our "Train the Human Time." She kind of had to laugh at me as she trained me - but I think she left with a little confidence in me. I eventually got my dog to listen as well as he did to Lori. She left - and he still listened! He is a very good dog now that we can take into public, and more importantly, not worry about him being around our toddler.
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.
Justine Crowell, has skill, knowledge and the plain nack required for Canine training. She trains not only dogs, but handlers (owners) as well as the first step in her coaching system.
Ashley is amazing. She has worked with my youngest with disc training and I am excited to continue once winter is over.
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.
Janey is a motivated teacher who really seems to enjoy helping her clients. We had some problems with our dog, Brody, when we came to class and she was patient, kind, and understanding through the whole process. She helped us get his issues under control and I really feel like he enjoyed the training process too!
Love the dog training classes by Terrific Tails! Great location, instructor is very knowledgeable and classes are affordable. Thanks!
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.

Your pet is in good hands, i have experience with small to large breeds. I have encountered all levels of attitude and know how to deal with dogs of any type.
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 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.
For my experience my fees are very fair. I do one on ones and teach classes.
