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

I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin, one of the trainers at The Canine Cure. We ended up board and training one of our dogs and boarding the other one as well. Caitlin took into consideration all of our concerns and did a great job building the foundation for our pups training. She was also very good about keeping us updated about both of our dogs while we were away on vacation and both of our dogs seemed like they were well taken care of during their stay. I will continue to use her services in the future and definitely would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog trainer.

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!

Our new rescue pup Roxie needed basic obedience training and we discovered Suzanne Rodda while searching the internet for local dog trainers. Suzanne knows her stuff ! We have worked with her over the last month and a half and the difference in Roxie is obvious. Suzanne's approach is to not only train your dog, but to train YOU to work with your dog as well. It's a win win combination. We had a few challenges facing us along the way BUT Suzanne's flexibility and commitment to us made working with her easy and a pleasure. She has our recommendation as an excellent trainer.

Ken was my first experience with professional dog training. I'm Amazed! Simple applicable success from the very first session. Positive reinforcement and strategies for overcoming frustration (more for the humans than the puppies) transformed the behavior of our Wilson - a rescue with a little bit of shyness inside a large body. Ken's guidance and constant reassurance gave me confidence and helped Wilson transfer energy into play resulting in a puppy who is undercontrol and safe in any environment.

My father is quite possible the worst dog trainer there is. In came Dr. J and within MINUTES had his dog walking obediently at his side! This is a bird dog that is used to ranging out far and wide. Amazing! Not only good results but a FUN experience with a constant patter of enjoyable jokes. Dr. J seems to have a sixth sense about animals. Highly recommended!

Although my puppy and I had initial training at a storefront situation, I didn't feel that I had a good knowledge of how to help my cockapoo puppy to be a well-behaved and happy dog. Margaret has given us very specific tasks to obtain the right behavior. She is helping me to think like a dog so I can see how my behaviors are interpreted by my puppy. Each hour is full of hands on instruction with plenty of fun for my puppy and me. She is very encouraging and is a delightful person. We have worked on sit, stay, down, wait, hush (for barking) and most importantly to come when called in a situation where my puppy would rather chase that bunny or squirrel. I highly recommend her as a talented and professional dog trainer.

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.

Mike is one of the most educated, unique trainers around! I've tried a lot of PT's over the years.. but he has given me the best workouts and advice that I have witnessed. He tailored to my mediocre-fitness level when we first started, giving me enough of a challenge to keep me guessing each workout, but not overwhelming me. His education and level of knowledge is great, he always is available to me for questions (diet, etc.) Also a funny guy (or tries to be haha!)

Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience

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 been using Anthony for a week now. He is professional and has been very thorough when it comes to his communication after each walk. He also is very accommodating to the specific needs I have for my two older shih tzus and best of all, the dogs seem to be a fan!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
