The moment I posted that I needed help with my puppy, Dawn answered me and was able to come to my home THAT DAY! She was so good with our dogs and not only taught them many tricks and manners we had been trying for months, but also taught me and my family so much about her breed and how to continue our training with our dog. She knew her facts and has a lot of knowledge on dogs. Very impressed and will 100% recommend Dawn to everyone who needs dog training.

What is there not to say?! Shawn knows how to train but more importantly, she knows how to train people. A dog is trainable . . . give the dog the command and the dog will follow. Reinforcement and the training of people is where the key to success of dog training is or not. Got it Shawn. Your words did not fall short on this girls ears. If you are looking for someone who will get you to start believing that your pet can truly behave then you need not look farther. Shawn Kwiatkowski will get both pet and owner walking in line together... The end result a behavin' relationship.

Working with Will and Shana was a pleasure. Our large Golden needed some fine tuning regarding his social skills and their tips and guidance was very helpful. We got as much training as he did. On one of our training session outings to a pet store, we talked about nutrition and the right foods/supplements. He has lost 5 pounds and we are walking 2miles a day. And he greets other walkers and dogs with good manners. So grateful. Thanks guys.

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!

Ashley was very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. This is type of training is exactly what we were looking for in classes. No clickers. No bribes. Just basic understanding of our puppy's thought and learning process and consistency. We look forward to a harmonious home thanks to Ashley.

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!

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.

About

I'm a certified dog trainer. I started taking care of dogs in a shelter a few years ago. After that, my love for animals made me study advance obedience and behavior modification. Since then, I've been dedicating all my time to learn more and more about dogs and to train many of them. If your dog doesn't know how to behave at home, you just got a puppy and need to teach him some basic obedience, or you need someone to walk your dog and take care of him while you are at work or traveling, I'm your person!
