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!

I recently had the opportunity to work with Shahar from Four Winds Dog Training. What a tremendous experience both for me and my dog. I have never worked with a dog trainer before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I provided some basic information about what I was looking for and Shahar responded that she could deliver the service I needed. She arrived promptly and ready to start training right away. She was very polite, knowledgable, and patient. My Bassett Hound tends to be timid around new people so I wasn't sure how he would react to a trainer. It took less than ten minutes after meeting Homer for Shahar to peak his interest. Watching her interact with Homer in such a gentle but confident way, explaining to me every movement she was making and why was very interesting. Homer responded in no time. I was very impressed. It was the exact opposite of what I might have expected from Homer given his introduction to strangers in the past. I learned a great deal from the experience. I highly recommend giving Four Winds a try.
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!
Rita clearly loves dogs and knows animal behavior. She worked wonders with our Rat Terrier (and us for that matter!) I had looked at some of the dog training classes in the area and none of the times worked for us. What's great about Rita is she's flexible and works within your schedule. Also, the training is one-on-one which is not the case with classes. She works specifically to the level and needs of your dog. After each class, she leaves you with very detailed instructions on what she just taught you, which is great because there was always something I forgot. She also makes herself available by text if you have any questions. Best of all, she makes it fun for all. I know I will return to her to brush up or take our training to the next level.
I am a responsible dog owner that is concerned where my dog goes for training and I am glad I chose this business. After I talked with the owner, saw the place, I was convinced this was the right place for Bailey, and I am glad I chose it. They were very good with Bailey right from the beginning, knowing what to do, gave him plenty of love, kept him safe and well fed. He made doggy friends and played well with other dogs. Since Bailey's issues started at home, that's where they need to be taught, in a home environment and I was pleased with the outcome. I have now signed him up for Doggy Day Care. Now that he is a better behaved dog, thanks to Brown's Dog Training. Lodging and more, I give this business a 5-star rating in my eyes.
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.
Sally is AMAZING! She is very accommodating in her schedule. She is very patient with the process, especially with the owner (me) who needs more training than my fur baby! Thank you, Sally for giving me the tools to enjoy my sweet Belle even more!
Jenny is a professional pet care provider. She does an excellent job taking care of our two dogs and two cats. When we interviewed her she had a lot of questions for us about our pets, she really wanted to get to know them. We have a new puppy and Jenny wanted to know the all the verbal and non-verbal commands to help him pass level 1ASPCA training.
Lindsay is an incredible dog trainer. She has turned our whole household around for the better because now we know how to interact with our puppy. We strongly recommend Lindsay Kinney from K9 Academy!
Ashley is incredible at what she does! She has been such a huge help to me and my pups. She has shared so many resources and lots of valuable knowledge with me. I don't know where my dogs and I would be without her! If you need a truly skilled dog trainer, nobody does it better than Ashley!
Roxanne is amazing! She has worked so diligently with our family and our puppy's needs. Any problem we were having, she had a way to address it. The best part is, it works!! She has a miracle solution for every instance. Roxanne is always willing to listen and do what is best for the family and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and always positive! She has reassured our family that we are making progress and are doing what is best for our puppy. We have seen wonderful changes in our puppy and are excited to continue to work with Roxanne. :)
Extremely knowledgeable about dogs and training methods/needs. Always on time and sends regular detailed updates about how the day went with my dog. Look forward to continue working with her.
We offer in-home, group, and semi-private dog training. We cover obedience, behavior modifications, and problem behaviors. Certified by several organizations and having years of experience, PLB uses the latest techniques to improve your dog's behavior and generate a solid relationship between you and your dog.
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.
I will help you train your pup or dog to be the best dog he/she can be! I will get to know your dog on a personal level and learn its twerks and kinks. Knowing the dog's personality is the first step I take before I begin his/her training. Every dog is different. Some may take longer than others to train. If you are not satisfied with my work then don't be afraid to let me know, and I'll give you your money back.
For my experience my fees are very fair. I do one on ones and teach classes.
I have experience with all breeds but specialize in bully breeds. I have been training service dogs for the past 3 years with which all dogs have been very successful.
