Today was our first day training with Dawn and it was awesome. She took the time to get aquatinted with our dogs, with my family and our needs regarding training with our puppy. My puppy loved her from the start and my teens felt empowered. Koda was following simple commands by the middle of the session. We are looking forward for next week! Thanks Dawn!
I first took my puppy to Shana, owner of The Grateful Dawg NC, for leash/obedience training. He was an energetic four month old Springer and she helped to properly leash train him so that we could take walks in our busy, city neighborhood. He also learned sit, stay and other basic commands. When my pup was a year old he was diagnosed with food allergies. He had a series of ear infections during his first year caused by the allergies and had become extremely aggressive with me, the vet and the groomers when it involved touching or cleaning his ears. Shana worked with him and, over 12 1/2 hour sessions, she was able to get him passed the aggression. She and I were both able to touch and clean his ears without him trying to bite us. More importantly, the vet was able to examine and treat his ear infections without any problems. The vet removed him from their reactive dog list and he no longer needed to be sedated to be treated for his ears. He is now three years old and has his ears cleaned weekly by me or a professional groomer with no issues. I no longer need to worry that he will go deaf due to an inability to clean and/or treat his ears. Thank you, Shana. My boy is one Grateful Dawg.
I run a dog training business (sk9t.net) and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!
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!
Tally loved having her sitter come and check on her while I was gone. She was a puppy and needed extra attention. I was pleased with their help and the notes from each visit!
Very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I've already noticed positive changes with my puppy and it hasn't even been 24 hours.
We brought our standard poodle to Joyce after a recommendation. We've been looking for a new groomer for our standard as we've heard he can be difficult to groom and may be afraid of grooming equipment. We keep him in a pretty regular puppy cut but our previous groomer was never able to round out his top knot, straighten the ends of his ears, or shave his face and feet very close. We dropped our dog off at Joyce's house and she texted us when he ready. It didn't take that long at all, especially given that Monty is 68 pounds and needs every part of his groomed in some way. This was the best groom job I've seen on him! She told me he wasn't misbehaved at all and handled everything really well. I like that he's the only dog she focuses on during the grooming time and even stops to have a play or bathroom session when he needs it. I feel like Joyce genuinely cares about my dog which is the best thing I could ask of a groomer. He also came out with a cute bowtie. I'll definitely be taking Monty back to Joyce for his next session.
I worked with Alex for years, if you want the best bond and training for your dog, look no further.
Melissa is wonderful my puppies love her! I say her name and they get so excited that she is coming !
I had a red-zone young dog and had gone through numerous trainers who could not make him stop attacking everyone...he was very aggressive. Stacy was a God-send. She very quickly won his trust and immediately helped him and me. She worked with us with care and expertise and I shall always be beholding to her for saving my dog. It is nine years later and he is one of the greatest dogs I have ever had...thanks to Stacy's magic.
Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!

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.
