The moment I posted that I needed help with my puppy, Dawn answered me and was able to come to my home THAT DAY! She was so good with our dogs and not only taught them many tricks and manners we had been trying for months, but also taught me and my family so much about her breed and how to continue our training with our dog. She knew her facts and has a lot of knowledge on dogs. Very impressed and will 100% recommend Dawn to everyone who needs dog training.
Execellan help at a fraction of the price. I looked into other trainers that cost 10 times as much for the same advice. Regardless of who you use, if you are not willing to put in the work your dog will not get the training needed. All my boys have a hand now in training our dog and she has accepted the training and each day becomes more behaved than the day before.
We got a puppy and were having a lot of potty training issues. Myke was able to put our minds at ease, as I was quickly coming to my wits end. He was very patient with our dog and showed us a lot of good training exercises to work with the puppy’s behavior and potty training problems. Even Myke agreed that our dog was a little stubborn on potty training but didn’t give up until we learned a strategy that worked for our pup. We are happy to report that our puppy is doing a lot better. Some in house accidents, due to her not fully undersnading how to get our attention to go outside, but she at least sits by the back door and tries to wait for us. Life has been difficult with a one year old toddler and a puppy but Myke helped us a lot and we just have to continue with his techniques and I’m sure this pup will be a cherished pet for many years!
Ashley was wonderful with my anxious and hyperactive dog! He was tearing everything up and jumping on everyone that came over. Not to mention humping me. I tried obedience training, and figured I was the problem, but I didn't know how (or how to fix it). After ONE visit from Ashley, he has already improved, and I am excited to show off his progress once he has really gotten into his new routine
Angel took care of our two cats while we were on a beach trip and our dog accompanied. Next time we hire Angels Paw Academy our dog will be at home. All went well and we are pleased with her.
We brought our standard poodle to Joyce after a recommendation. We've been looking for a new groomer for our standard as we've heard he can be difficult to groom and may be afraid of grooming equipment. We keep him in a pretty regular puppy cut but our previous groomer was never able to round out his top knot, straighten the ends of his ears, or shave his face and feet very close. We dropped our dog off at Joyce's house and she texted us when he ready. It didn't take that long at all, especially given that Monty is 68 pounds and needs every part of his groomed in some way. This was the best groom job I've seen on him! She told me he wasn't misbehaved at all and handled everything really well. I like that he's the only dog she focuses on during the grooming time and even stops to have a play or bathroom session when he needs it. I feel like Joyce genuinely cares about my dog which is the best thing I could ask of a groomer. He also came out with a cute bowtie. I'll definitely be taking Monty back to Joyce for his next session.
I hired Erik to train my Golden Retriever when I was referred by a friend who said he also used Erik's services and the results were impressive. So I contacted Erik in hopes that he could help my dog who had difficulty being around other dogs, was very nervous, and would constantly lick her paw. Basically my dog was a bundle of nerves. She had difficulty sitting still and trying to teach her anything seemed impossible. So I thought I would take my friends advice and give Concise K9 a try. Within a few sessions the progress was obvious. She had commands instilled in her and seemed to be proud of herself! She also finally stopped licking her paw, which was a habit she had for a while. My dog was always happy to see Erik and his interaction with her was great. I always felt comfortable leaving her with him for the lessons. I would highly recommend this man for his expertise in dog training as my dog is now a well behaved, secure girl and her good qualities shine. Erik is also a true professional and honest in his dealings.
I worked with Alex for years, if you want the best bond and training for your dog, look no further.
We met Kelley 5 yrs ago when I was looking for a puppy trainer. I was Given a business card from my vet. I contacted Kelley and we decided to meet. I was so impressed how she worked . It became so clear it was not puppy training but human training. I enjoyed my first meeting it went by so fast I could not wait till it was time for another visit. And Toby couldn’t wait for the amazing treats she had. Kelley is a very passionate in what she does to help everyone learn how to work together. Her knowledge in her craft is second to none in my opinion. I have recommended Kelley now for 5 years.
I can't recommend Paula/Working Dog Care highly enough. She's conscientious, responsible and treats the dogs in her care like her own. I have an Australian Shepherd and she's spent quite a bit of time helping me get him off to a good start. We've worked in social settings, honed his manners in public (no jumping, etc), and worked on a toning down some of his natural instincts as a herder (barking etc). The training has been enormously beneficial, especially the overnight stays. He comes back to me happy, healthy and better behaved. Paula/working dog care is my #1 choice for dog training and/or boarding.
LeighAnn always does the best job pet sitting for me while I am gone. She sends pictures and updates. She always goes above and beyond and exceeds my expectations when she cares for my 3 dogs and 2 cats. I love that she travels to me so my dogs never have to leave their safe space. She does her very best to accommodate all of my pets needs and has the best pricing in the area. I have never had any worries about her being in my house. She is very trustworthy and I will continue to use her and refer her for all pet sitting needs.
Russiana is a super dog lover! my dogs were treat as kings in her care!

I will treat your pet as I treat my five babies. I will make sure that they are fed and have clean water. I can give any medications. I have a dog of my own that requires that. I will walk them and play with them. I can do anything you need me to do. I can also take care of other animals; I grew up on a farm. I have no problem with anything but lizards and snakes.
We specialize in behavior and socialization. We don't use a "one size fits all" approach; we observe both humans and dogs to try and identify the root cause of the issue. We then work with you to develop a force-free training approach.
We are a small family owned business located in Greensboro and the Triad area. We specialize in private one-on-one lessons with our clients and their dogs to develop long lasting and meaningful relationships between them. Our training methods are based on positive motivation and classical conditioning, and we believe that training should be fun for both the dog and its owners.
I hope you will consider me for your dog walking and caring needs. I am available during the day and each weekday while my daughters are in school and on the weekends and would love to walk/care for your dogs. I would be more than happy to give your dogs the daily exercise and special attention they need while you are away. Please ask me for any more questions that you may have or if you would like to set up a play date/interview with me and your dogs. I look forward to hearing from you!
