Basic commands and obedience training. Dogs listen so much more now & are still continuing to learn every day thanks to Joel. Great price but even better service.

We have had only one session with Lena and have already seen amazing results with our 1 y.o. dog. Lena gives hands-on training to you and your dog. We are training our pup to be a therapy dog, and he is already well on his way to having the skills needed to pass the test. Well done Lena Skov! Glad we found you on Thumbtack!!!

We were so very pleased w Kevin’s work with our puppy. Can’t say enough good things. We did the 10 day plan for general obedience training for the puppy. The change in his behavior is amazing (and he was already a good puppy). Kevin picked him up and brought him home daily. Worked with him at our house, his house, and in public. Focused on areas we wanted but included other important issues we didn’t think of. He sent us multiple videos of training daily with explanations. We loved these and they taught us a lot. He also met with us with the dog to instruct us. Always wanted to make sure we understood what to do and why. We feel both the dog and us have a great foundation now to continue training. Would highly recommend.

Mariah has been wonderful with my dog. She has been able to personalize his training experience to best meet his needs. Mariah has helped me understand how he learns so that I am better able to train him and bond with my puppy. I feel confident that Mariah will help my dog know basic obedience!

I cannot recommend Jarod highly enough. The work he put into training my dog was unbelievable and he has absolutely transformed my dog. My fearful, anxiety ridden pup came home confident and obedient and full of life. You WILL NOT find a better or more dedicated trainer.

Theresa was very good at listening to what we described about our dog's behaviors, daily habits, and overall personality, and she seemed to customize her training for our dog. Within only a couple of visits, we have seen marked improvement in our dog's transition from the shelter to our home, as well as a decrease in her overall anxiety. Additionally, Theresa was able to provide references for trainers that can help where she can't, for instance in group dog training for our dog. Her love of dogs is easy to see, and we would recommend her to anyone needing help with their pup.

I met Nick, the owner of Alpha-Moves while taking my dog Mister, to a dog socialization class. I was immediately impressed by Nick’s easy going demeanor & willingness to spend extra time with me talking about the ins & outs of training a puppy. I was so impressed by Nicks knowledge of dogs & his suggestions on how to train my puppy, I asked Nick if he would be willing to come over to my house & help me further train Mister. I had no idea how how much help he would be. Nick showed me how to potty train Mister, how to get him not to chew on everything in the house, how to actually come when I called him , and he even showed me effective ways to discipline him without breaking his spirit. Nick was always on time for our appointments & willing to answer my calls & walk me thru whatever Mister & I were working on. When Mister turned 6 months I entrusted Nick to take Mister for 3 weeks & do an intensive obedient training with him. I must admit this was the longest 3 weeks of my life but nick kept my up to date with the training & sent videos to show Mister’s continued improvement. My wife & I had just had our first child so I kept reiterating to Nick how good Mister has to be. After the 3 weeks were up I was blown away with what Nick had done with Mister. My wife or I can simply say “place” & Mister goes to our pre designated spot & stays for as long as we need him. This is so helpful when we are trying to cook dinner & bathe our daughter. Before Mister was underneath our feet & clamoring for attention but now he will just chill out in his place until we say the code word & then he will come off. It’s a game changer!!! Mister heals, off leash. With the help of an e collar I go to the park without a leash. I can ask Mister to lay down, then walk a 100 yards and give him a hand signal that Nick taught him & he will run right to me & sit. It is truly amazing. Mister just turned 1 years old & we haven’t had to deal with all the usual “puppy stuff”. Nick even taught him the “that’s enough” command where I can ask Mister to stop barking & he will do it. This one blew me away because we want Mister to bark to let people know he’s here, but we also want to be able to ask him to stop. Now I feel we have the best of both worlds. I have never left a review for anyone in my entire life but after working with Nick I wanted to let others know. We couldn’t be more grateful & I couldn’t give Nick a higher recommendation. Thanks for all the help Nick. I wish you continued success. Look forward to more training the future. And Mister does too:)

After I adopted Kody, I quickly realized that he didn't know anything. He came from a hoarding situation. I started looking for a trainer that would take him and teach him the basic commands and work on his kennel and potty training. I found Furbaby Country Club conveniently located in Terrell, NC. I called, explained my concerns and we started the training. The approach and the training methods she provided have made a huge difference in both the way I handle the dog and the way he responds. She focused on his socialization first, basic obedience and kennel and potty training. She really focuses on the importance of positive reinforcement and giving praise to your dog every time he behaves well. He is home now and is so much better. I highly recommend Furbaby CC. She takes the time to get to know your pup. I can always call her with questions and she will help you anyway she can.

After the passing of our Black lab, last year it was so hard for us to get another dog but we knew we were ready. We seeked out Aaron and he found us the most beautiful chocolate lab puppy!! The kept him for the first few weeks and started him potty training and some basic commands and then they delivered him to us all the way to Virginia from Charlotte!! This company obviously really loves animals and has their best interest at heart. Thank you so much for our good boy!!! He will be continuing his puppy education here soon and we are looking forward to working with them again!

We had a great overall experience with Glenn as he trained our dog and us. :) Glenn was patient, well-informed and friendly. He answered all of our follow-up questions throroughly and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the training process. The one caveat I would suggest is to establish a communication plan upfront with him. Once we addressed that email was his preferred channel, things went more smoothly. We would recommend Glenn and his family to anyone looking for an educated dog trainer!

Kat was able to help me after I adopted my 5 year old, Rufus. He was a rescue dog that didn't have the greatest go at life for the first 5 years. Sweet, loving boy, but he definitely needed some guidance as far as training and obedience went. She came over to our house- met with us- and put together a plan to help get him on the fast track to where he needed to be. Through very thorough one on one training she was able to get him to *not* jump with excitement on to visitors (and even me) when they came through the door, she trained him to always stay in "place" when commanded, and the biggest thing of all was that she was able to train him to walk on a leash. I know that sounds silly, but before she worked with him- he was all over the place on a leash. With her tools and methods, he now walks by my side as if the leash isn't even there. Even more so, I can now walk him (where it's permitted) OFF of the leash and he obeys every command. He's still the same sweet boy I adopted, but he wouldn't be the well trained boy he is today without the work and training she did with him.

My unique approach to dog training is not just teaching your dogs mindless tricks, but addressing the dog's state of mind and building their confidence by teaching them life skills and how to live happily by your side. I also teach you how to be a confident and trustworthy leader that your dog will respect and not take advantage of.
