Kathy is one of the best dog trainers in Buffalo. She personally helps my family understand our dog’s behavior and mannerism and gives us tips and advice on how to work through any challenges we are facing. She is truly passionate about what she does for dogs and its shows! When we mention going to play group to see Kathy, Lucy will runs circles around the house! Play groups are run in a controlled and safe environment where the dogs are monitored closely.

Danielle is wonderful!! She is very knowledgeable and has suggestions/answers to any issues you may be having with your dog. My dog in particular needed training in developing manners. My dog was jumping, nipping and chewing on things in our house. Danielle was very patient in training her. She offered us suggestions on keeping our dog busy to distract her from chewing on things in our house. Danielle's training helped us learn ways to control her behaviors. I highly recommend Danielle. Our dog's behavior has really improved. It's nice to know that Danielle is available for refresher lessons if needed in the future!

I found Meghan on here in a desperate search to find a cat sitter for Christmas on short notice. I was leaving my cat, Eddie, for the longest period of time in several years, but just meeting Meghan put me at ease. She has a calming presence, is clearly an animal lover, and I didn't worry about my cat's wellbeing while out of town. Eddie is notorious for staying hidden in my absence and multiple friends have cat-sit for me without ever seeing him. The fact that Meghan saw him at all tells me he wasn't too worried, either. I would recommend her services without hesitation, and plan to use her again in the future!

Vanessa came three times a day during this past week to care for my dog and cat, both of whom are approaching thirteen years old, while I was out of town. They were both healthy and happy pets when I returned. She will be caring for them again during three more extended trips I have planned for the next two months. It's a good feeling to know I can safely leave my animals, who are very important to me, in Vanessa's care knowing they will be well taken care of and loved by her.

I couldn't believe how well my dog responded while being trained. She gave me helpful ideas for calming my dogs behavior and we are working on that now. I would highly recommend All Dawgs Acadamy

I just realized that 10 years has passed since I wrote a review of Susan and Pawsitive Experience. Time passes, puppies grow up, and some have even passed on .... but through all those many years, Susan has remained an amazing advocate, trainer, and friend who cares deeply about nurturing the relationship between people and their dogs so they can all live "happily ever after". She truly wants the best for all concerned. I have known her with my own dogs since 2003 and have observed her with many others through the years. She is always there to speak for the dog and help people understand the canine messages that elude them and help them build the positive bond with their dog that will last a lifetime. Her approach is positive, individualized, honest, direct, and humorous in teaching both the dog and the person, and I have really valued learning from her. Over the years, I have participated in her weekly happy hour where the dogs play together and also in her training classes. It has truly been a great place to learn and share with my dogs in the beautiful country setting of Pawsitive Experience. A great example that demonstrates what Susan has created comes from my first meeting with her at a birthday party for one of her wonderful Shiloh Shepherds. Not knowing what to expect, I found not only her own dogs there, but a total of 100 dogs, all playing happily off-leash. I counted them multiple times - there were 100! There were lots of fun activities for all the dogs ranging from agility to Canine Good Citizen testing, delicious food, and of course, the companionship of all those other dog lovers and their dogs. What I truly found amazing that day, and remains vivid in my mind even after all these years, was that 100 dogs could play together for 3 hours and get along without any issues ~ really, I watched them all ! No issues. These were the dogs of Susan's client's and friends. It was very clear to me that anyone who could create a harmonious dog environment like that, clearly knew what she was doing. Her cat wasn't even phased by all those dogs ! Most recently, Susan took in a dog from a friend of mine who died suddenly. She was in need of a lot of tlc and support, yet Susan took her in without hesitation and made her one of her own and gave her the care and acceptance she needed. She has always taken in rescue dogs needing someone to care and understand them and has given them a second (or third or fourth) chance. She has been an angel to them all, and to me, too. I appreciate, beyond words, Susan and all she has done and continues to do on behalf of dogs and their people.

I called Love Your Dog in desperate need of help in training my newly adopted dog. Shannon went out of her way to schedule me in quickly for in- home training. She was great to work with and my dog loved her. Very helpful. Thanks Shannon!

    I started as a training client with my then 12 week old shepherd mix puppy. The training and trainers were absolutely amazing. We have attend every training program offered and now use all there services. This facility and staff is the best I've found by far. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and has extremely satisfying customer service. My dog jumps for joy anytime I say do you want to go visit Love your dog. As long as he is happy and seems loved which I know he is I'm happy.
