Ms. Parnell works dogs through positive operant training and motivates the owner to want to follow through. She has vast knowledge working with troubled dogs with a positive outcome. I recommend her highly. You will be more than satisfied with her services.
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.
She’s very knowledgeable and patient and easy to work with. Ringer and I already are so much more confident after only one training.
I started with Lynnae with puppy training. I am now on my 3rd group training. Lynnae is an amazing teacher. She has/is trained me to train my dog. I have learned more than I ever expected and she helps you understand the dogs thought process. She is patient and always willing to help with individual problems. The training stays positive at all times. I highly recommend Lynnae for individual or group lessons.
Melinda is a perfect example of a great teacher. She is kind and supportive with positive reinforcement training methods. She is incredibly patient with dogs and their not so coordinated parents. If you want a trainer with compassion, knowledge and patience, with a keen sense of what you and your dog need, choose Melinda.
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!!
Bri is amazing with new puppies she totally understands their behavior and clearly shows you had to modify it to get results.
We train and modify behavior, so that your life with your dog can be delightful and meaningful to you and your family.

I am originally from Rochester, New York. I've been training dogs for over five years. The main thing that I have learned in doing this is to be patient. Some dogs can be trained faster than others. It really depends on the breed, but all dogs are trainable. You just have to know and use their own instincts that they are born with. I train dogs that are not housebroken, jumping on people, biting, barking, and pulling when you walk them. I can also teach commands depending what your needs are and what you want from your pet. I can come to you or you to me, whichever makes you comfortable. I am looking forward for all of you dog lovers out there to contact me, so you can have control for your family member and not have family, friends or guests be afraid to enter your home or even to lock your family member away when you do have visitors.
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.
