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.

What is there not to say?! Shawn knows how to train but more importantly, she knows how to train people. A dog is trainable . . . give the dog the command and the dog will follow. Reinforcement and the training of people is where the key to success of dog training is or not. Got it Shawn. Your words did not fall short on this girls ears. If you are looking for someone who will get you to start believing that your pet can truly behave then you need not look farther. Shawn Kwiatkowski will get both pet and owner walking in line together... The end result a behavin' relationship.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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
