Ben is a gifted dog trainer. After just a handful of sessions, my dog is better behaved and still lovable!! I love the progress we make each session, and she loves to see him arrive. :)

Christy has done an amazing job training both me and my 10 month old GSD. She helped train me on being an effective dog owner and learning the keys to training my dog. My GSD was a nervous and hyper dog but by working with Christy we have been able to curve those behaviors and are now able to successfully go on walks and not have to worry about what will happen. Thanks Christy!

Sully is the best canine trainer in this area. She not only teaches the dog, she also teaches the owners. She has made my dog my favorite campanion. I take him everywhere I go. I can actually take his to the hair salon because he is such a well mannered dog. With the help of Sully and her new "Training" collar, working with my dog is not only fun but the learning is quick. Her outings are very fun for all of us people and animals......give Sully a call.

Danielle is an excellent dog trainer. My dogs and I have taken group classes with her for obedience and agility, and they have also taken semi private lessons in disc. She explains things in a way that is easy to understand and my dogs love her!

Shawn has given me complete confidence that I'll be able to better communicate with and understand my dog after he is done with his training. We have completed 1 week of a four-week session, but I already see a huge improvement. Highly recommend.

Working with Casey has been a truly wonderful experience. He is an amazing trainer. Not only for dogs but for us as we'll. teaching is how to train out dogs and teaching us how to have a relationship with our dogs. He is a great mentor and a great person. Him and his other staff members are a wonderful team and I am grateful to be a part of this journey. Thank you Casey.

Kieli has helped us so much! About 3 months ago my husband and I had just about given up on our 4 year old dog April. She was aggressive to the point where she had even biten people. We didn't know where else to turn. After researching dog trainers in our area, we came across any canine. Not knowing what else to do, we emailed her right away. She was so quick to get back to us and to even come meet our dog. Kieli jumped right in to save us! I could go all day about how much Kieli has changed our lives but I will just tell you this. Today our dog April graduated from her training with Kieli! She can now meet strangers, walk off leash, and even hang out in downtown Portsmouth with the world's toughest distractions. We all know have the tools to live a long happy life together. Kieli is like no other and our family will never forget her! Thank you Kieli!!!

Matt was so helpful and professional. He answered all of my questions and was extremely easy to work with. His prices were great for the amount of work my dog needed. I definitely recommend him as a dog trainer, and plan on utilizing him for any further family additions!

I enjoyed working with Amy because she provided a wealth of information and good direction for training our rescue dog. She really took the time to get to know my dog, and to understand my training needs and goals. And with a great sense of humor, she was able to make training fun!

Jenn is a terrific dog trainer. She not only trained Boulder, our English Springer Spaniel but also we learned a great deal about training a dog. We would definitely contact Jenn whenever we get another dog.

There are not enough positive words to describe my experience with Trinity Tails Training. From day one, the employees of TTT have been very understanding and compassionate to the issues we were experiencing and needing help with. I never once felt like a failure in the dog training world and I have learned so much in just a few sessions with my own personal Great Dane and Great Dane fosters. I can reach out to TTT at anytime, with any issue (even if it seems trivial) and will be given direction on how to handle it until I could meet up with a trainer in person. I have recommended and will continue to recommend TTT to everyone I know. Being in the rescue world, finding a good dog trainer, is like finding gold. Thank you Trinity Tails Training! You are quite a blessing!

I received Cheyenne, my black lab, at about 1 year old. She was very stubborn and hard to handle when I received her. I hired Honor Roll Dog Training to help me get her under control. Kathy, Cheyenne's trainer, had her sitting, laying, going to her place, walking without pulling me, and catching, all in 5 weeks of training. Kathy trained Cheyenne in my home with a very gentle hand. I highly recommend her if you have a dog in need of training or want to take your dog to a higher level.

The Howliday Inn was probably one of the single great finds I have ever had as a dog mom! I have two rescue dogs that needed some human socialization skills along with a few other needs making it difficult to find a boarding place I could trust. Both of my furballs can be slightly timid and shy but I saw such major improvements once they started boarding, going to day camp, just plain spending time at the Inn with the help of their highly personable and skilled trainer, Jonathan! I work absolutely anything but normal business hours and everyone at Howliday Inn always tries to help accommodate not only me but my pups. I get updates whenever I get anxious about being away from them without hesitation from any of the staff. I could go on and on but I can't say anything but wonderful things about the Howliday Inn and how thankful I am to know that my furry kids are in great hands!

We have come to really rely on this great service. We have a very high energy dog and it is simply difficult to find the time to give her all the exercise she needs to be a happy puppy. With Walks In The Parks, Maybelle doesn't get a mere walk--she gets run-around-like-a-wild-animal time with other dogs. (As a side benefit--this has made her much more comfortable with other dogs. She used to be very fearful of them, and a bad experience at our local dog park did not help. Now she is not fearful with new dogs AND she loves the dogs she plays with regularly. This company is owned by an experienced dog trainer--Paddy--and she seems to be really good at preventing conflict between dogs.) She is always SO excited to be picked up by Rick and Paddy and comes back with the dumbest happiest look on her face, it's really cute. Now, we have some friends who rely on doggie daycare to get their dogs the play and exercise they need. I think that's a great option if you're away all day long every day during the work week. But of course with doggie daycare you are dropping off and picking up each day, which adds a significant amount of time to your commute. This service is great because it comes with drop off and pick up. At this point we have worked with Rick and Paddy for so long that they have keys to our house and they can get her and drop her off even when we're not home. Of course we would not be comfortable letting our little girl go off on such outings if we didn't know how much Rick and Paddy care for her! They love dogs and they love Maybelle. (A final side benefit--regular photographic updates of Maybelle showing a fierce side of herself, at play, that we've never seen!)

About

I do basic training for small and large dogs, working one-on-one with clients and their dog to have a better understanding of their dog's potential and ability to respond to basic commands. Every breed has the ability to learn and adapt to their environment, and it is up to us to provide a standard progression of learning. It takes about 10 minutes a day over a period of a few weeks. Having been a school teacher, I try to provide the same type of environment that is conducive to the student's/dog's learning potential. We build a relationship with our pets that lasts a lifetime. I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon! Sincerely, Harry Fleming
