I am looking forward to hiring him again! You will not be disappointed with this gentle giant! Sal 's fee is extremely affordable and is the best money I have ever spent.

Jay was a great dog trainer. He has made a lasting impression on us and our dog, who is now much more behaved. He helped us understand our dog much better than we ever anticipated.

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.

Suki watched my puppy while I was at work. She arrived early and was very excited to see my dog and very happy to help. I definitely recommend her to take care of your pets!

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.

She really enjoys what's she doing and that translates into a positive, productive experience for my dog and me! She also had good practical tips for dealing with puppy issues. We are having great results.

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!

Sarah truly cares about your pet. She has done an excellent job aiding me in walking and training my Old English Bulldog. More importantly, when the fire alarm in my building went off while I was at work, Sarah was nearby and made sure my dog, my best friend, was taken care of. I couldn't ask for any greater service.

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.

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.

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

Truly fantastic and unique dog training experience. Chelsea had so much patience and genuine interest as I spoke with her (endlessly, on multiple occasions) about all of my concerns about my 11-year old adopted Shiba mix who grew up as a street dog in China. Gingko has not been an easy dog for me to deal with, but Chelsea has helped me not only manage but understand her barking and snapping behaviors. She's not just interested in obedience - she wants to help create a symbiotic relationship between you and your dog, so that each of you are happy and safe. I always imagined training to be just lots of clicker-treat-clicker-treat stuff (doesn't work with Gingko, who thinks treats are a trap). But Chelsea's full of clever, practical, and easy solutions that prevent unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. Can't recommend her highly enough.

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!!!

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!
