We have nothing but great things to say about Joel and the results of him working with our 6month old German shepherd puppy , Remi. He is reliable and trustworthy. Joel is very knowledgeable about k9 behavior, specifically with this breed. His calm and gentle demeanor is non threatening and Remi connected with him right away. Joel gave us updates and reinforcement advice after each session. Remi learned so much after his 6 sessions. We look forward to working with Joel further for training with our next German shepherd puppy and some advanced training with Remi in the near future.

I have been involved in the professional dog world for over 35 years and I feel Carol Lynn Fox is one of the best dog trainers I have met. She is not only knowledgeable with the many different breeds of dogs and personalities, but also keeps updated on new training techniques. She is calm, patient and kind, which gives her the ability to make sure every student, feels special. It’s almost as if you, and your dog, are the only students in the class, or in the least, her favorite! One of her best qualities, in my opinion, is her unique ability to connect with the humans! Most dog trainers find this their most difficult task, yet Carol Lynn makes the complete novice feel welcome and at ease. Bonnie Best

Finding Tina has been a real blessing. She loves dogs AND cats....my felines slept in the bed with her. They usually are very shy. I take that as a sure sign she got their vote. I just took a new job and wasn't sure about my travel schedule. Tina is very patient and flexible. She stayed for three nights and I came home to happy pets. I have a 2 year old German Shepherd and 5 year old Mini Schnauzer too. The GS is high energy and Tina has a gift with working with large dogs....not everyone is fond of the Pitt Bulls or German Shepherd breeds....you can rest assured she will know what to do and walked both the GS and mini together.....said "No problem". I'm a bit obsessive "helicopter pet parent" and Tina sent photos and I felt good knowing everybody was happy.

My dogs love Lena! She and her dogs have been helpful in training my hard headed 4 year old German Shorthair pointer! Lena has been very accomodating and creative in finding ways to engage him. Our 11 year old rescue enjoys using his natural talents in the nosework class. Furthermore it keeps his aging mind stimulated. I highly recommend understanding our dogs for your training needs!!

The Leashlife team made a world of difference for my pups. We have four dogs including from German Shepherd to Yorkie and they could handle everything. They were extremely reaponsive, professional, and great to work with. I'm a very private person and I don't let just anyone into my house, so I'm extremely happy that I found a team that I can trust with that kind of responsibility!

About 7 years ago, we hired Fran to train our Chow puppy, who was out of control. I saw an article she had written in a magazine and was intrigued by her writings. In 2 weeks he was learning all the commands she taught US! I learned so much from her on dog behavior I suggested she have her own TV show, because she truly is better than Ceaser Milan and Victoria Stillwell. Fran doesn't use harsh training methods, she trains by the "reward method", and she LOVES her clients, she is professional, fun, and has more knowledge about training than anyone I have ever worked with! I recently rescued another Chow (named CUJO) that was his name from his previous owners and he is about 8 years old from the shelter I volunteer at and he was apparently abused and conditioned to a home with fighting, and Fran has worked with him and me to desensitize him to banging, knocking, any noise that would signify he was in an abusive environment. He also had a very negative reaction to people touching each , hugging, I had to be very careful when I got him home. He was undernourished and sick.....but now he's coming along wonderfully. HE LOVES HER and so do I. She helped me with a new diet for him for the health issues he was having. She is knowledgeable in every aspect of dog training, agression, agility, puppies, Good Canine Citizens, companion dogs and I recommend her highly. She goes out of her way to do her very best for you and your dog. She just isn't your typical "dog trainer" she absolutely loves what she does and puts 200% into her work ! I highly recommend Fran. !

We feel very fortunate to have met Laura. She is a passionate pet lover. Laura is dependable, trustworthy and has a very strong work ethic. She has been our pet sitter for the past year and we've used her for visits and walks as well as overnight stays. She works well with both cats and dogs~ and we have a very active German Shepherd and a dual cat household (indoor kitties). When we lost our miniature schnauzer this past week; Laura came by to say goodbye since she and Jack had bonded and she was very concerned. Laura goes above and beyond~ you won't be disappointed!

Amanda is a very calming person. She knows how to calm my dog down and get her attention all the while both having fun. I have a German Sheppard puppy who needed to work on her social skills. Amanda went above and beyond what I expected. Not only did she work with my dog and me, but my husband, 2 of my children and one of my grandchildren who was very afraid of the dog. I think they have a new respect for each other. Thank you, Amanda. You have a very special gift teaching and sharing your skills with others.

We have 2 Australian shepherds. One is highly energetic and the other is very protective. Theresa not only trained our dogs and corrected their behaviors but also trained us as owners on how to handle our dogs when guest come over. As soon as she walked in she showed complete assertiveness and leadership and the dogs quickly became aware who was the new alpha. She taught us how to become more assertive and the alpha in our home. Theresa always followed up throughout the week to ensure training was useful and on track. She is extremely knowledgable about dog behaviors and how to correct the behaviors we didn't want. Thanks to Theresa we now have to tools and knowledge and our dogs show promise to allow guest into our home.

We had a 1 yr old German Shepherd that was crazy hyper and Off Leash K9 Training made her amazing and obedient while still maintaining her playfulness and letting her be a puppy. What an amazing transformation!! Highly recommend for anyone who wants a happy, confident and obedient dog!

We recently got back from a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas and did not have to worry one minute about our pets care. We decided to use Andromedia Pet Care so out pets could stay in their home on their schedule. James was wonderful, he really seems to have a love for animals! He was willing to care for our 12 year old German Shepherd, 11 year old house cat and 2 pet rats just as we would if we were there. Even though we were unable to be reached for most of our vacation James knew exactly how to care for our pets should an emergency come up. We will definitely be using Andromedia Pet Care in the future and highly recommend them to everyone. You will not be sorry if you choose Andromedia to care for your pets!

Ted @ QCK9 has been absolutely Awesome! He was able to straighten out my older Malinois-Mix and correct some behavioral problems. We've also recently started training with our Dutch Shepherd. The sessions have been fun and educational. I think that I've learned just as much as the dogs have.

When I called Alpha-Moves I was extremely impressed that the President of the company, Nick, was the one to answer. Nick was very professional and was able to work around my schedule to set up a consultation. After he met Sam (my German Shepherd) he was able to customize a plan for me specifically. Sam can now work on and off the leash and is now much more controllable! Not only did he train Sam but he worked with me on how to properly use the training he instilled in her. Overal I would recommend Alpha-moves over anywhere else!

Robin is a highly intuitive and skilled dog trainer. She loves dogs and dogs love her. She is gentle in her approach, and it is highly successful. Robin is not only wonderful with her dog clients, she is equally loved by the dog parents. She has a great sense of humor and patiently teaches mom and dad how to treat their four-legged kids.

Chad is an exceptionally talented dog trainer. His approach is differentiated vs. a lot of other trainers around Charlotte in that he focused on teaching the dogs the right behaviors vs. just commands and also he does not use e-collars or negative methods. I have been working with him for a couple of months with a large, young rescue dog, and it has been extremely helpful.

Scott is an outstanding dog trainer! He really knows what he is doing and he helped turn my silly pitbull into a very well mannered dog who obeys every command I give him. If it wasn't for Scott's help I would have not been able to get Rebel where he is today! I can take Rebel to the park or to the lake to swim and he stays right with me! I would definitely recommend Scott to any and everybody I know!!!
