Dawn is an expert at training dogs. And she truly loves animals. All service providers should be aware of Laura D who posted a negative review of Dawn on Dec 23. Laura D lied in her review. The issue wasn't that Dawn didn't like the questions. The issue is that Laura D refused to listen to Dawn's advice. Instead Laura D rudely argued with Dawn. If Laura D didn't want an expert's advice, she shouldn't have contacted an expert. I feel for the dogs under Laura D's care.

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.

Dawn is seriously such a great trainer, she is currently training our dog Mia for aggression, and after just 2 sessions we have seen so much improvement already. We are truly blessed to have found her and we cannot wait to keep working with her. We truly recommend her for anyone that is having trouble with their dogs!

I have had THE BEST experience and results working with Shana and Will. They are quick to respond, very flexible and easy to work with. I chose to work with the Grateful Dog after speaking with other trainers because Shana is so confident and knowledgeable she immediately put me at ease in our phone conversations. I appreciate that she took the time to not only explain her plan with my dog but also what she expects from me. After our first session I felt more confident in handling my anxious dog in various settings- each session has been extremely beneficial for myself and my dog. We are noticing tremendous changes in behavior. Many thanks to Will and Shana!!

Shana and Will were very responsive to my inquiry and came to my house the next day. They brought two of their own dogs to my house for the first session with my dog, to help her with her aggression towards other dogs. It was amazing! They showed us how to properly introduce her, what to watch for and how to keep her focused on me. Within minutes the 3 dogs were best friends hanging out on the porch! Our next session will be introducing her to dogs she has already shown aggression towards, and who are also very 'responsive' to other dogs. I can't wait! Soon I will be able to enjoy our walks again!

Very "down to earth" dog trainers. They use appropriate correction and positive reinforcement. Best of all, we could tell they really enjoyed our dogs

United K9 has been great so far! It's not like obedience training and really does take a more deep-rooted approach to change behavior rather than simple commands and repetition. We have a lab/boxer mix who's very high energy and tends to be anxious and dominant. We have worked with Ashley and she's gone over the basic rules of the house as well as nutrition and other key pieces of information - our dog has responded well to the rules so far and it's allowed her to have more confidence in us as her leaders. Ashley has also been very prompt with setting up last minute visits to go over some of our dog's more difficult behaviors and we appreciate her patience while we continue to work through things! We would definitely recommend United K9, especially if you have a stubborn pup and think you'll need multiple sessions.

Working with Ashley was very easy and efficient. In the matter of an afternoon she taught us the knowledge and tools we needed to continue working with our new 1 year old dog as well as our 10 year old dog. We love that this form of teaching does not include treats and can be used at all times. We are very pleased how well our dogs responded to the teaching and behavior modification. Thank you Ashley!

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

I had the pleasure of working with Jen when we adopted a dog that was very aggressive toward our cats and created an unsafe environment for our family. Jen was wonderful! She came to our house and set up exercises for us to do between appointments. She was always available to respond to email and phone calls and supported me through the process. When we mutually came to the conclusion that the dog's prey drive was just too strong for our situation, she continued to be very helpful and honest, sharing expert advice and comfort while I found him a new home. I would highly recommend Jen. She is a tremendously caring and knowledgeable professional.

We had an aggressive dog and Jennifer is doing a great job of helping us overcome the aggression. She provided digestible suggestions that were easy to implement and fun for our family to try. The good news is that it's working too!

So many good things to say! The trainer Jeanne is very knowledgeable and helpful. She has a lot of energy and keeps our sessions very positive and fun for both me and my dog! The prices are reasonable for the area and she and her husband made scheduling a lesson very easy. Definitely recommend!

Excellent service provided. I have had the honor to see training sessions with Mr. McCall and it is amazing to see how he can easily train you to train your dog. I have also seen the outcome of him raising an intelligent American Bulldog, dash. The things dash was able to do after Mr. McCall worked with him would blow your mind. Dash is always loved and truly missed. Much success to your Mr. McCall.

About

I'm a certified dog trainer. I started taking care of dogs in a shelter a few years ago. After that, my love for animals made me study advance obedience and behavior modification. Since then, I've been dedicating all my time to learn more and more about dogs and to train many of them. If your dog doesn't know how to behave at home, you just got a puppy and need to teach him some basic obedience, or you need someone to walk your dog and take care of him while you are at work or traveling, I'm your person!
