CJ Johnson was outstanding in her work with my older dog and my puppy. Both of them benefitted from her positive reinforcement training and her patience. She is knowledable, professional abd succeeded well with my dogs' training issues

CJ did a great job helping us learn the right techniques for training our dog. He is a much happier doggie now that he knows what we are trying to tell him. Thank you!

Initial interview about dog training services. Very congenial and knowledgable owner, answered all questions at length, listened closely and shared own experiences, and demonstrated a great love for animals. I felt very comfortable with him, and signed up for his services.

The best dog training! I would never go anywhere else. My dog listens to me now and I can take her everywhere and not have to worry about her running off. The trainers are super helpful and really take the time to show me how to communicate with my dog! Thank you Off Leash!

Mike did a great job training my dog, who is now a well-behaved husky! He is also very patient providing specific advice during the follow up class. We are very glad that we chose Mike as a trainer!

Mike is an awesome guy and great trainer. My huskies are 100% better and we aren't even done with the training. Would recommend him to anyone needing training for their dogs.

I highly recommend Advanced K-Nine Training! My dog is a totally different (in the best way possible) dog after the training he received. Two thumbs up and a wagging tail.

Melissa is amazing! She has transformed our 3 year old lab into a well-behaved, lead-friendly, walking, fun-family dog. Our 80 lb lab was challenged with many physical issues in her first year of life. She had two major surgeries before she turned one year old, which kept her bed ridden in her crate for the next year. Melissa trained her for two weeks in her own home and Jolene came back a new dog. Melissa then gave us written directions on how to continue Joey's training by correcting our own behavior with regards to Jo's training needs. Jolene is now off to college with our daughter and is well-behaved and loved by all. We highly recommend Melissa's Mutts and Mongrel's for all your dog's (and your) training needs!

Melissa did an amazing job working with my newest rescue. She was an overly anxious pup that was hyper and very distracted by everything. She is an angel now with listening and responding as well as no longer pulling me all around the neighborhood. I was amazed at how far she came in just two weeks. Anyone looking to get some obedience training for their pup should go see her!

We took our ten month old lab to Melissa and she corrected everything we asked. This greatly exceeded our expectations! We are now working on repetition and everything is going extremely well. I would highly recommend Melissa's Mutt's and Mongrel's to anyone needing help with dog training.

We started looking for a trainer for our German Shepherd (Lucy) a few months back. We found bill at bulletproof dog training on thumbtack and I was very impressed with his background. Bill was very helpful explaining all of his training options, even sending multiple videos. We decided to try another trainer due to the price. After a few lessons with the other trainer we knew Lucy was going to need a different trainer. We dug a little deeper into bullet proof dog training and decided to put plans into action. We dropped Lucy off with bill for 15 days and I simply can not praise these guys enough. We started receiving videos of her a few days later and I thought we were getting videos of a different dog. We were afraid when we got our dog back she would be a robot, but this is not the case. She’s still the playful love able pup we dropped off, but now she listens to us! They spent plenty of time with us when we picked her up to make sure that we were comfortable with all of the commands that were taught. The entire staff was extremely friendly and I could tell they truly cared about Lucy! I’m very glad we found this place and came around, I just wish we would have went with them right away. I highly recommend bulletproof dog training.

Having Bret come to our home was very convenient for training specific to our needs. Bret is personable and knows his stuff!! Daisy responded quickly and understood the role Bret played. Bret was also patient with me, as it sometimes took me a little longer to learn the routine than it did for Daisy. Loved the written review that we received each week. I am planning to contact Bohannon when Daisy is ready for therapy dog training.

Wow! What a great experience working with the Bohannons. They helped us understand our role in our fur babies life. Our Cayta is a much happier and better behaved dog. Between Stephanie's training 'know how' and Brett's understanding of animal behaviors they've changed how we respond and deal with Cayta, making us a much happier family. I would definitely recommend them for any of your dog training needs.

We are so happy we found Bohannon dog training. They are very nice people and have provided the best dog training experience we have ever had. We will be continuing with them to advanced training for our dog.

Alicia, thank you so much for helping our newly adopted dog Jesse adapt to her new surroundings! We were afraid we would have to return her to the shelter because of her agressive behavior toward us and our other dog. But on the recommendation of a friend, we called you, and learned how to better control our dogs. We have no intention of giving Jesse up now! Thanks for your help!

We have an Aussie-doodle that was bitten at 5 months and very afraid to socialize. Joe has done an incredible job helping us boost Cooper's confidence and obedience. He is off leash walking, sits and stays and is making strides at being more social. We are very excited to get Cooper to engage with our neighbors large dog and overcome that huge fear! We want our neighbors to see what we see. A super sweet dog! More to come on Joe's awesome skills with that future accomplishment.

Joe is an expert trainer of people and pooches. He is patient effective and easygoing yet firm when appropriate. From the moment we met, His experience and genuine concern was evident. This Reassured me that my pup and I were in good hands. He's not only our trainer but also a friend for life.

Anyone who knows me in person knows that I am 100% obsessed and protective of my dogs. I always strive to give them the best life they deserve. When my class schedule was getting too busy, I needed someone to help me out with the dogs so they weren't cooped up all day. I am so thankful I found Allie because she seems to care for them as much as I do. When I get back from my classes, they are almost too tired to say hi to me! I also really appreciate how she has personalized regimens for each dog. I have a hyper younger dog and an aging dog so they obviously need different workouts. I honestly have no idea what I'd do if Allie wasn't here to help me out. If you're ever in need of an AMAZING dog walker, give Allie a call!!

About

I worked at a K-9 training, where only "positive" behavior was rewarded. Negative behavior was to be put into a "time out", where the dog was removed from the other dogs until they calmed down, then released back. We never raised our voice, were taught how to approach a "new" dog and worked training dogs at every opportunity: sitting before they were fed or sitting before taking out for walks or potty break. Everything was always a learning experience. I was learning to work with a "positive reinforcement" approach until my position was "eliminated." I worked there for 10 months. I cleaned the kennels, fed and walked the dogs and have some experience "grooming" from past schooling. I'm a great multitasker and work well with other team members.

About

I can provide training and exercise that will help your dog become a great family member! I use completely force free methods. ZERO prong, choke, chain, or shock collars. Buckle or martingale collars are acceptable along with front clasp harnesses! (I don't mind giving recommendations) We work WITH our dogs and help them figure out what we DO want from them and not what we DON'T want from them. I will help you make training into a fun game with your dog instead of a 'chore'. Training doesn't only make your pup tolerable to the family unit but strengthens your bond to your pup and makes your dog WANT to work for you!

About

Dandelion Acres offers 3 acres of fenced play space! We feel that dogs need room to run and play both inside and out! More like a dog park, we don't have high fences and confined spaces. Pups are able to go outside far more than two times per day like other kennels offer.

About

Does your dog hate car rides? Does he/she have anxiety about going to the groomers? Are you too busy to take your precious pooch to the beauty salon? Then, look no further! I am a certified groomer of seven years, a stay-at-home mother, and animal behavior specialist. I will come to your house and groom your puppy right before your eyes! I provide full-service grooming, from a simple bathing to breeding and doing specific hair cuts. All grooming comes complete with nail grinding (no painful nail cutting), ear cleaning, anal glands expressed (yes gross but extremely necessary for a healthy pet), and complimentary de-shed treatment. Aside from grooming, I can also provide one-on-one training techniques (our puppy is fully potty trained at only 10 weeks old!) Note that I will groom cats if they are okay with strangers, and you agree to a small dose of children's Benadryl. This will keep your kitty from becoming too anxious and is safer for their well being and mine. Most grooming companies refuse cats and/or will give them anesthesia! My pricing is extremely reasonable and cheaper than PetsMart. It's guaranteed! You can call today to schedule an appointment and have your pet pretty for the holidays!
