I can't say enough positive things about Sarah Todd and the help she provided in the area of dog training for our problem. She came to our house and met our dogs and instructed us in a variety of ways about how to deal with the difficulties we were having with one of our dogs with regard to her (the dog) reactions to other dogs and certain other triggers that caused her to show aggression. Sarah was very patient and understanding providing insight into the reasons for our problem. In a very short time we have noticed a great deal of improvement in our dog. We would highly recommend Sarah as a dog trainer and behaviorist to anyone who needs these kind of services.

Lynnae is amazing!! She is patient, positive and really helped me understand how to work with my dog. My dog was super excited every time he saw Lynnae. He loved "practicing" with her! I would highly recommend Lynnae to anyone who is interested in not only training their dog but understanding them too!

Tek was awesome guy. He send me pics every day of my dog. He was informing about everything what was going on. He figured what she likes and he was making her happy girl. They are very awesome with scheduling. I found them on the web in the last min and they understood my urgency. Will def keep them in mind and suggest them to my friends.

I took my new young dog for a private lesson with Melinda. We were already taking beginner agility lessons in a class at local dog club.. but Melinda's one-on-one was tailored for me and my dog. I've been trialing in agility for 13 years ... but Melinda has taught me new and better ways to train and practice. She is up to date on the latest techniques. She is over an hour drive for me, but well worth it.

Carol is such a great dog trainer! She was wonderful with our previous dog, so when we got a new dog we sought her out for training again. She has so much experience and really knows dogs, especially breed-specific tendencies. She takes charge and doesn't let the dog act out. She's the best trainer in the Albany area.

Kevin and his son, Kyle both cared for my 10 month old puppy and were great with him. They were in contact with me while I was away to give me updates, and my neighbor contacted me to tell me how impressed she was by the amount of time they spent playing in the yard with my puppy. Kevin and Kyle are dog lovers, and it felt great to know that our puppy was in their care in my absence. Excellent experience.

Jenn helped my husband and me in dealing with and managing our aggressive dog, and eventually helped us in coping with the loss of him. After that, Jenn never lost touch, checking in with us to see how we were doing and even inviting us to watch a Search and Rescue training with her team (to this day one of the coolest, most impressive things I've ever witnessed). What we didn't realize was that Jenn would not only help us in dealing with the early loss of our pet, but she would help us become better dog owners. She has taught us everything from animal behavior to human behavior, how to effectively communicate with our canine companions, and how to lead a happy, balanced life with them. What impresses me about Jenn is not only her professionalism when meeting with clients, but her energy, passion and knowledge for dogs and helping others. Jenn spent countless hours with us offering us advice, pointing out to us what she was seeing in our dog and why it was happening, and what we could do to modify the behavior. Jenn takes a genuine, caring interest in the dogs she trains and the families she helps. I simply cannot put a price tag on what Jenn has done for my family (2-legged and 4-legged). If you are noticing issues in your dog, or are just interested in learning more about dog behavior (and in turn human behavior), I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend Jenn to anyone and everyone. Don't bother looking anywhere else - the quality of her service is unrivaled!!

Great Trainers that are always willing to help. My dog is a different dog after attending classes at the APF. She is much more obedient and manageable. The bond I have with my dog is now stronger then ever and a large part of that is because of the APF Classes

About

Many people train their pets, or at least attempt to. But I go beyond that. I love dogs and want to do what I can to make living with them as easy as I can. A lot of people get frustrated because their dog pulls to much when they walk them, or because it won't learn to sit or lay down. I want to alieviate that frustration. I have trained many dogs, both my own and friends and they are amazed. When new people come over and see how many tricks/commands my dogs know and how well behaved they are they say how shocked they are. I own large dogs and I always get people that are scared because of their size. I promise them that they will do nothing other than sniff you, lick you, and wait for you to pet them. By the end of the evening, most want to take them home. I enjoy working with dogs, so I don't see it as a job that needs to be done, but a job that yes, needs to be done, but that I love every minute doing.

    Buster attended doggy book camp for 2 weeks which made a huge difference in his behavior. We've worked with him diligently. This is something new, he charges people walking past our house (the driveway is 1/4 of a mile) and has nipped people on our property - men. He's a rescue from a high kill shelter in the south. We're very concerned we may be forced to put him down, but he's not at all vicious or really aggressive. I think its important the trainer see him in his own environment
