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.

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!!!

Tina obviously is a dog lover. This was the first time we've left our dog behind & we I was a nervous mom. Our Elvis can be a runner & we needed a safe yard so Tina stayed at our home for 4 days. We knew our dog & home were both safe. Tina did a good job. I would reccommend her & use her again.

I was very impressed with the training my dog received. Kacey was the most difficult dog I have ever owned. We could not have anyone over to our home or take her out in public. After her training, she Is a different dog. She listens and we can now take her out anywhere. I can’t say enough good things about this company!! Definitely would recommend to anyone!!!

Angie with Furever Home Training was and still is my very first choice and recommendation for dog training and behavior. She is so incredibly experienced and knowledgable, and her classes are so fun! I took my aussie mix puppy, Banjo, through her puppy class and Canine Good Citizenship class. Both were invaluable parts of Banjo's growth, socialization, and training. We live in Indiana now but I STILL trust Angie with my training questions from time to time. With Banjo still in those tricky teenage pup months, I only wish we were still close by! Anyone considering dog training needs to check Furever Home Training out. Be it in group classes or private sessions, Angie is patient, so awesome at her job, and it doesn't hurt that she is super affordable too. Banjo and I miss you Angie! Lots of woofs and love from Indy!

I have worked with Holland K9 services for 3.5 years and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone. When we adopted our dog Buddy, he was so high energy that we had to let him run off leash to burn that energy off and be a happy dog. However he was completely unresponsive to commands off leash, and would charge (friendly and excited, but still) any dog or person he spotted. After a bad experience with another dog training group, we found John. He helped us to transition to using an E-collar (shock collar) in order to enforce off-leash commands. I was initially nervous about that type of training due to our prior experience but with John it went great. Buddy was never fearful like he was with the other trainers. Our dog became wonderful and basically 100% reliable off-leash, and all of us were so much happier. We hired him again when we got our second dog, and he helped us train her as well as brush up Buddy on his skills again. Training with him is definitely worth every cent.

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!

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.
