Joel has been a great dog trainer! It has taken him a few short days to accomplish what we have been trying to do for months. Very reasonable too!

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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. !

I am out of town a lot, so Will from Dog Pro services takes care of my dog Bruno. I like that he also trained my dog with basic obedience. Training was easy and it's affordable Will is an awesome guy.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Fran is a wonderful and talented dog trainer! She comes to you and works on whatever your needs are. She has a great personality. My dog loves her (and so do my cats). We love her gentle and fun approach with our golden. She gives the whole family the skills we need to continue the work after she leaves. She is always available if we need help in between sessions too. Her group classes are great too! I recommend her to everyoe.

Stephanie was fantastic with our dog and I would highly recommend her! She was very diligent and flexible when our trip had to adjust last minute and our dog seemed to really enjoy her time with her. If you are looking for someone who will care for your pets as their own, Stephanie is an excellent selection! She even sent us photos while we were away. Thank you for your care with our pup!
