Joel is a great dog trainer. He is cool, calm and collective which is a great trait for a dog trainer. His training is accomplished using positive reinforcement. It's well worth the investment in your dog and yourself.

Lena came to our house to help us with training our puppy. She was here for over 2 hours and she gave us a lot of very useful information. She was extremely patient with both of our children and our puppy. The information that she gave us was extremely relevant to what we wanted to know and when she left, we definitely felt like we had all the tools we needed to train our dog. She was very nice, prompt and I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a private dog trainer. I've actually already given her name to two of my friends who need help with their dogs.

I am so happy I went with Leashlife as my dog walker. My dog loves getting the extra attention and I never have to worry about him while I am at work. They leave notes and give updates on a regular basis, I would recommend them to anyone. I also love seeing their Instagram post of their other dogs they are all adorable and happy!

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.

Brendan is amazing! He met with us and listened to the concerns and issues we are having. He had immediate feedback and gave us the much needed tools that we need to begin working with our dominant/aggressive rescue dog. We left with so much hope!! We will definitely be working with Brendan again.

Kevin has been walking my dogs every day that I work for several months now and I am very pleased with his service. When I first met Kevin it was obvious that he very much enjoys his job and spending time working with dogs. He gave me lots of great training tips and my pups Otto and Hemingway adore him. Kevin is fantastic and I would highly recommend him if your looking for a dependable, trustworthy trainer or dog walker. He will treat your pets like family.

I honestly doubted anyone could help my dog, he's so scared of everything that moves. He has gained so much confidence, he's doing really good. We love meeting up with her and her dogs, seeing Swanson has really become one of Remy's favorite parts of the week! Thanks so much Jessica, couldn't ask for a better experience, dog training has been so much more fun than I thought it would be.

Honestly it has been amazing. I told Mariah the problems I was having with my dog Grace. Not only did she set a clear path forward for what we needed to work on to correct it, but also identified things I needed but didn’t ask for. I’m a soon to be Veteran being medically retired and she’s helping me to train Grace to be my service dog. I had a lot of quotes from bigger trainers, but Mariah was the ONLY one that even addressed my dog by name and the issues I wrote about. So I guess I’ll say this, if you want someone knowledgeable, actually cares enough to read what you write and generally a pretty amazing person. You’ve come to the right place.

We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!

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!

Hiring Jarod was one of the best things I ever did . I was very weary about choosing a dog trainer for our 1st puppy because he was my baby . Jarod put all my doubts at ease . after training our little ankle biter was no longer biting , he had no accidents in the house and he was much more obedient ! The best thing jarod did for us was train our puppy to behave around our baby when he was born . one of a mother's worst fears is having their pet and new baby not get along , jarod helped put our worries behind us . when we hired jarod he told us he sticks with you for the life of the dog . he sticks to his word, he helps us any way he can with our fur baby! I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else

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!

Dog Envy changed our lives for the better!! Georgia, our boxer/bulldog mix was a very difficult, stubborn dog that we determined was "untrainable". Dog Envy changed that! We chose the Board & Train option with Samantha as our trainer. The difference in our dog is amazing! Samantha did a wonderful job not only training Georgia but educating our entire family on how to work with our new commands. I would recommend Dog Envy to anyone who needs training for their dog and especially for those with a difficult dog.

We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.

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:)

Liz (and Meritt) did an awesome job of training Spartacus - our cockapoo - and us! What they do at CCT is everything a dog owner would want - they truly love what they do and it shows in how they help dogs be such great family members and how Spartacus loves going there for socializing and training with other dogs. I could not imagine having a dog without them.
