  1. #1 Christy Seal CDT, ABCDT, Pet Dietitian, Author

    (40 reviews)

    Erin P.

    Christy worked with my pitbull and me for four sessions - each an hour long. Not only was the cost incredibly reasonable, but Christy was excellent. My dog had exhibited aggression towards another dog on a leash, and I was seeking Christy's help to work through this and some other quirks. I should also mention here that I had sent my dog to a Stay n' Learn with another trainer and was very unhappy with the results. Christy demonstrated techniques, worked through my own technique, and even utilized her own dogs to work through behaviors. She is wonderfully personable, utilizes a well-balanced approach to training, and was willing and able to work on anything we brought to the table. There is a noticeable positive improvement in my dog's behaviors after four short weeks, and I feel well equipped to manage them going forward. I will certainly use Christy and My Best Buddy Dog Training if I am ever in need again. Highly recommended!!

    Awesome experience! From the moment Sully arrived, I saw a change in my pup. She also taught me some things to do with my older pup to make his transition easier with a new dog sibling. Thanks!

    Casey and his wife are very knowledgeable about dogs and methods of training. The staff who work with you offer a lot of support and ideas that make the lessons very successful. I have been impressed with how well my puppy has done so far and really credit that to the one on one lessons.

Christy Seal CDT, ABCDT, Pet Dietitian, Author

(40 reviews)

I have had many inspirations and a ton of support, but there are two things that really stick out in my mind for what inspired me to start my own business. The first would have to be my own dogs. I have been on one incredible journey with the dogs I share my life and passion with. They were all adopted/rescued, and all have had some massive behavioral challenge that I helped them overcome from aggression to separation anxiety to over exuberance, I have lived with it all.

Christy Seal is a certified dog trainer and is running her own Best Buddy Dog Training and K9 Sports. She provides top-quality dog training services to dog lovers from all backgrounds.

In order to keep my customers happy, I need to make sure the dog gets trained in a timely fashion. Dog training is a process and a long one at that. It is to be expected that having a well behaved dog is going to take time, but if the process takes too long or if the client can no longer handle a dangerous behavior (door dashing, aggression), then the process needs to be expedited, otherwise the owner may give up and the dog could be turned into a shelter.

Among her many success stories, Christy recalls that her favorite was helping a family who had a yellow lab mix, who had quite serious problems with the children. Christy worked with them and after a series of sessions, Christy was able to tone down the issues and soon after, the dog lived happily with the family.

Handle your K9 issues well by booking with Christy Seal.
