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!

My wife and I sent out german shepherd for training. When we got him back it was like he was a new dog. Jarod was extremely flexible with us. He went above and beyond to work around my difficult work schedule while boarding Goliath.

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 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!

I have personally used Heidi's training services, 7 day puppy boot camp, for my German Shepherd. It was amazing and knocked the defiant puppy behavior out of him. He's now 4 years old and still remembers most of the training, even though I have done little reinforcement. I have also recommended Heidi to several friends, some who had dogs with behavior issues, and they are also VERY pleased. They too have gone on to recommend Heidi. If you are looking for effective, professional, and reasonably priced training for your dog - no matter what breed - you can't go wrong with Heidi at Blue Line Kennels. Also, she has the most reasonable pricing for dog and cat boarding in the area. It's not fancy, but the dogs could care less as long as they get to play outside. I highly recommend Blue Line!

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 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.

John is an excellent dog trainer! Our German shepherd was not socialized when we got her and would cower and cry at any attempt to put a leash on her. Now she is well socialized, very well behaved and is the great dog she was meant to be. Even our three year old can walk her unattended.

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.

Stacy is a great dog trainer! We rescued our dog a year ago and have been battling seperation anxiety with her as well as aggressive behavior from being on Prozac. After just one home visit from Stacy Minnie is almost a new dog. She goes in her kennel all by herself. Without having to pick her up to put her in it. Our dog loved Stacy so much that when she left she waited at the door for her :0( Thanks Stacy for making our Minnie pretty much the perfect dog!

We have a male German Shepherd that had some dominance issues before training. Now he is a much better dog. He doesn’t pull me when we walk on his leash. He responds to his commands when before he would ignore us. We had some fence issues and he got out and he came right to us without running or giving us a hard time. I highly recommend Highland Canine of South Carolina!!
