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.

Execellan help at a fraction of the price. I looked into other trainers that cost 10 times as much for the same advice. Regardless of who you use, if you are not willing to put in the work your dog will not get the training needed. All my boys have a hand now in training our dog and she has accepted the training and each day becomes more behaved than the day before.

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!

Myke has done a great job with us and our 2 year old rescue, Hattie Mae. He has helped our family understand her special needs and gave us much needed guidance on how to help her work through her anxiety. He is knowledgeable, experienced and has a patient demeanor with our family members (including Hattie Mae). He arrives on time and is professional. We would highly recommend Myke and Gray Wolf K9 to those looking to better understand their dogs behavior and personal training lessons to correct unwanted behavior.

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.

Our experience has been very positive. Alvin is prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable. He is very adaptable to what works for us and for our dogs. He has helped us to see why our dogs do what they do and more importantly has helped us work with our dogs to obtain the results we want by showing us how to show our dogs what it is that we want. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs training help with their dog.

I can't recommend Paula/Working Dog Care highly enough. She's conscientious, responsible and treats the dogs in her care like her own. I have an Australian Shepherd and she's spent quite a bit of time helping me get him off to a good start. We've worked in social settings, honed his manners in public (no jumping, etc), and worked on a toning down some of his natural instincts as a herder (barking etc). The training has been enormously beneficial, especially the overnight stays. He comes back to me happy, healthy and better behaved. Paula/working dog care is my #1 choice for dog training and/or boarding.

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.


I provide dog training with all ages. I teach ability, agility and obedience. Dogs are able to respond well after a couple sessions.


We provide basic obedience, advanced obedience and behavioral modifications. Our training is done one-on-one in your home to provide the most convenient service for you. We will come and provide a free evaluation of your dog to attain which general program you need. Then, based on our findings, we will provide a detailed action plan, setting you on the road to the companion you want and deserve. Problem areas we specialize in are: * dog aggression * bolting * biting * jumping * chewing * food aggression After working with JBBDogs, you will be the leader that your dog wants and needs, and you will be amazed at the obedient companion your dog has become.


We specialize in behavior and socialization. We don't use a "one size fits all" approach; we observe both humans and dogs to try and identify the root cause of the issue. We then work with you to develop a force-free training approach.


I am an individual dog lover and accomplished trainer. I am here to spend time walking, socializing and training your dog to be an improved canine good citizen.

I'm more passionate and my attention to detail is also what separates me from the rest of the pack.


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!


I do basic manners training to behavior modification training and everything in between. I am an ABC certified dog trainer.
