Lisa was so reassuring and professional over the phone.. She was so honest with me about my training with my dog, we were actually able to resolve most issues with a phone consultation. She could have pressured me into signing on to a training program but she has integrity and the experience to recognize that my concerns over my dog were minor enough where I "didn't need her", but she was still caring enough to make sure she coached me appropriately over the phone anyway. Thank you Lisa...
I had a 23 week old puggle who had severe separation anxiety due to a breakup with my boyfriend we also had a year old pitbull they were together everyday since my puggle was 8 weeks old after I moved out and we got our own place she would not stop barking when I would leave her alone. I have to do something so I called good dog training and she guided me through stepson how to control her barking and crying and right now she only likes Criesfor like a minute I tell her to be quiet and give her a treat and we repeated it and repeated it and repeated it. and she finally stoppe I almost got evicted from my apartment if I couldn't get the Barking under control but thanks to good dog we still have a place to live and everything is great
Training a 2 year old dog, who was trained to pee & poop on dog mats. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!~ Still working on that. A new dog would be nice. or go back 2 years. Jacquie is great but won't take my dog home with her. Still working on the above. LOL
We are half way through our 6 week training of our puppy, and so far it has been amazingly successful! Our little Penelope is learning so quickly. Kristin really cares about the animals, and making sure you understand how to communicate the lessons to your pets on your own as well.
Ashley does a great job with both the dogs and the owners. I am amazed at how my dog has learned with her and I have learned too! I am on my 4th class with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has an amazing ability to balance training the dog with encouraging and teaching the humans at the same time!
High quality training and above all professional! I recommend Off Leash K9 Training 10 out of 10 times! They did an amazing job with my dog - now I can take him everywhere with me OFF LEASH!
Jocelyn, owner of JW Pet Care, has been working with our family since the week we brought our Labrador puppy home. The thought of leaving our “baby” with anyone else, especially a person who we did not know, seemed unbearable at the time. When we first met Jocelyn, we were immediately impressed with her strong knowledge base, impressive experience, and most importantly, her comfort level and warm, natural interaction with our dog. Jocelyn’s innate love for animals shined through immediately, which really calmed our nerves! Jocelyn has consistently provided great care. She arrives within the requested time frame, feeds, plays with, and loves our dog! Each time she visits, she sends at least one, but often several, photo or video updates. What a comfort it is to know that while we are at work, our dog is receiving so much attention and TLC. As a business owner, Jocelyn is responsive, professional, understanding, and fair. I appreciate her flexibility and willingness to work with our constantly changing schedules. I have never felt like this is just a business to Jocelyn; this is her passion. We feel blessed to have found her.
Otto is our 9-month-old, 100 pound Newfoundland who we were having a hard time training at home. He's loving and smart, but he can be stubborn when he thinks he can get away with it! We were introduced to Zach and Leila and quickly started their two-week, basic training course. We couldn't be happier with how things went! Otto is world's better at walking on the leash, greeting new people, sitting, laying down, staying in place, using his climb, and following the basic instructions every owner dreams of. They have taught us with patience and kindness and we have definitely seen the results in our big bear. He loved spending the day with them and their other furry clients. We cannot thank them enough and are excited to enter their advanced training course in a few months once we get in some more practice of these basic commands at home. Zach will even be stopping by to help us more with counter serving! Thank you so much Koda K-9 Services!
Ruth has been doing pet visit for several years now and does an outstanding job. Among her many abilities she will train dogs to jog next to her while riding a bike, giving them a better workout and she is very patient with the pets.
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.
I attended a training class with Tracy. I brought my Fiona. I really enjoyed the class and Fiona is a better baby girl from it. I will definitely be bring my Lawrence to her in the near future. I am working on training him to be my service dog...
My name is Lisa, and I am a certified dog trainer (CDT). I offer basic obedience, advanced obedience, problem behaviors and many more. I offer group and/or private lessons.
We offer a more relaxed home environment for dogs than your typical "kennel". That's why we are also senior dog friendly. A lot of places say that they treat your dog like their own however we truly do. When and if we can, we go above and beyond for our clients. Dogs don't need to be in a room with 30 dogs to get the socialization skills they need for everyday life. It is actually the opposite. We keep our groups smaller and safe, supervision even at night is available. Our sanitary levels has never had a dog leave sick. Many of our clients become our friends, not just our clients. It is a true personal service that simply does not exist anymore.
I've grownup around dogs all my life. I have done anything from training to walking. I offer big dogs to small dogs.

I love dogs and do not mind picking up after them. My Abby and I walk every morning, and I don't mind walking early in the morning. I will also go over in the afternoon and take them for a walk as well.
