I have the trainers with other dogs come in three times a week for two months and didn’t come close to getting the results that I got with Jay after five visits. He was prompt courteous and very patient with not only the dog but with me as well. I have a two-year-old daughter who Jay was absolutely fantastic with and integrated her into the training with the dog. If you care about you dog and want the best training possible cal Jay

Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!

Anna was great from the start—immediately responded to my initial inquiry and had wonderful followup, but most importantly, she's just a wonderful dog trainer. Our 11-month-old terrier responded so well to here, and she was great in giving us the knowledge of how our puppy thinks, which allows us to be better at understanding our dog.

Nancy is absolutely an outstanding dog trainer. Over the years, I've hired more than 5 different dog trainers to help me with my pets and now I will never have to look for anyone else. Nancy has taught me how to understand and communicate with dogs better than any other trainer I've worked with or book I've read. If you want a happy and obedient dog then Nancy will be able to help. My dog walks by my side on a leash, comes when called off leash, goes and lays down when I load my dishwasher, sits politely when I greet people at my door, stays on my unfenced property and does lots more fun tricks too, all thanks to Nancy's help.

We are so happy to have met Debbie! She is an absolute pleasure. She helped me and my fiancee learn how to be the best owners to our new puppy Bodie. She truly cares for each animal she works with and wants the best for both owner and dog. Being a pretty anxious person, Debbie was so patient and helpful. She never left without us fully understanding what is expected and always made sure we could do it on our own. She is a fabulous trainer and person. She even gave us great tips for healthy homemade treats for our dog. I would recommend her 1000 times over to anyone who is looking for help with their dog, new or old.

Laura is a pro. She's knowledgeable, responsive, passionate and kind. I adopted a puppy recently and hired Laura for 3 training sessions. Even before Biggie arrived, Laura proved to be immensely valuable. She provided lists of all of the items I should have on-hand, including food and toy recommendations, and she even helped me find a vet and a dog walker. Once the sessions started, Laura arrived on time with a clear curriculum and format. She was organized and direct and taught Biggie (and me!) the essentials around crate training, focusing, sitting, meal time, walking on a leash and more. As a first time puppy owner, I was totally lost before I met Laura. She's incredible, and I highly recommend her. Laura is not only great at what she does, but it's clear she loves her job as well.

We have tried many dog trainers with many different techniques over the 35 years of having dogs. None came anywhere close to the effectiveness of Rick's handling of our golden doodle. We were on the verge of giving our dog away when we first met Rick. After a reasonable number of sessions, he transformed him into a completely different and oh so delightful pet. And the neat thing about Rick's techniques, our dog showed improvement after the very first session and just continued to get better as we went through the winter. Rick truly worked magic.

Chelsea Kronick was the trainer--and will be on call--for my Service Dog even before he was a Service Dog. Forget about the fancy special skills for the dog: She took a nutball, somewhat aggressive Golden one-year old and his clueless owner and turned them as a pair into upstanding citizens ready for High Tea with the Queen. Do not let yourself miss working with Chelsea. 1. What's already a great gift: Her skill and understanding of how dogs think and act, and how to most effectively change them, guide the dog's nature, towards matching your needs, with the dog happier and more integrated than before. Add to that: What is unique in my 30 year experience of numerous trainers, who even for starters never came near Chelsea's skill with dogs: 2. No dog comes without a caregiver or two, and Chelsea learns _the relationship_ of the people to their pets in training mode and off; hell, she's discovered the relationship of the caregiver to himself as well: what goes through your mind when you are frustrated, or who (you/dog) has done what in the ongoing process of training as expectations and actions change and the method must adapt. It's entire process and its subtasks which Chelsea's learns, teaches, fixes. Rinse and repeat. Go with Sundog.

Working with Faryn was great. Fenway loved her and listened! She did well at training not only the dog but my husband and me!!! She was clear on her instructions, consistent and helped Fenway understand the basic commands. Faryn is very professional and at the same time is warm and engaging. Her methods for training Fenway worked and her love of animals was very obvious. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Faryn!!!

Great, great Trainer!!! Anyone with a dog needs to go and see Alex @ Off Leash K9 Training. Her techniques are innovative but at the same time provide common sense, easy to follow skills that anyone can do with their dog. Whether your dog has been trained or not you need to take your dog here and have your dog e-collar trained, it makes such a difference. You and your dog will live a much less stressful and enjoyable life once the training occurs...we saw so much improvement in our 4, 1 hour lessons. Our success story is on their YouTube Channel (Penny and Capone). - Cindy Martenson

I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!

I have worked with Saul twice over the last ten years and each time I was astonished at his ability to connect and understand dogs. Both of my dogs were adult shelter rescues, the first came from the shelter with an aggressive energy, the second a completely disconnected dog - without responding to anything or anyone. It's not just about teaching the basic commands so you have a dog that is well behaved and can go with you anywhere, but equally or more importantly understanding the dog's psyche and knowing how to get through to that particular dog. Saul just has that ability! There is no other trainer for me, Saul is the one for me and my four legged family. Betsy H.
