Tom and Kathleen were dreams to work with. Very relaxed, very knowledgeable, very relatable - all around great listeners with solutions that work! When my husband and I put in the time with our 12 week old Siberian Husky, Lema, she knew all her basic commands and knew them well by the time 18 weeks rolled around. We are SO thankful that Abby Lane Dog Training was able to come out to us each week, taking our sweet puppy and making her sweeter. Wonderful trainers to work alongside! Tom and Kathleen want you to have a genuinely great dog to grow with and go above and beyond offering up their free time for you to call outside appointment hours for any questions. If you listen, put in the time with you pup, and are patient the results will show! Highly recommend this team! It was a pleasure to work with them these past 6 weeks.

After one session with Kerry, I was amazed how much more control I have had with my dogs. I have two Great Danes, and they can be a little unruly sometimes, to say the least. Recently, one of them has had a couple aggression issues towards other dogs when we go for walks, to the park, etc. Kerry gave me the tools to manage her nervous aggression towards other dogs she perceived as threats. With showing my dogs that I am a leader and making myself more aware of my body language, I am able to put them at ease that I am the one in control whenever we leave the house. Half the battle is making sure you and your dogs are calm and you're the one leading them, and patience is key. Kerry also showed me how to handle my dog when she does get into an aggressive area and how to handle her so she doesn't get hurt, and I don't get hurt. I have done other training techniques with my dogs and other trainers that were not getting the results that I have seen Kerry get within minutes of walking into our house! I would highly recommend Kerry for owners who are really interested in understanding their dogs and understanding their roles in their dogs lives.

Susie did a good job with training my puppy Max 2 yrs ago. She trained me as well. Max has been an enjoyable member of my family thanks to Susie's training. He loves it when the grand kids come over.and greets adults as well without jumping on them. When people are eating he doesn't beg or disturb them. I would recommend Susie to anyone seeking an excellent dog trainer should contact Susie Huber.

My husband and I got our Border Collie (Isis) when he was 8 weeks old. We started training classes with Cindy soon after. Isis is almost 10 years old now.over those nine plus years we went through basic, Intermediate, clicker, canine good citizen, agility, o-gility...pretty much everything Cindy offers. The classes are fun and informative, a great bonding experience for you and your dog. Once we ran out of classes we just kept going back. Cindy is an excellent teacher and trainer. You will learn just as much as your dog if not more. Isis loves going to "school" as we call it. Just saying the word "school" to him makes his ears perk up then he dashes to the back door ready to go. Cindy makes dog training (school) something to look forward to every week. Thanks Cindy.

Not only is Gayle extremely knowledgeable but she 'trains' the owners as well as the dog! Her technique is to make sure the owner understands the simplicity of the dogs mind with relatable analogies. She trained our unruly, untrained 1 yr old rescue to 'sit' within minutes and we have an entirely new approach to training thanks to her and it's working! We highly recommend Gayle for any dog training situation.

Sits N Wiggles is a small family-owned and -operated pet sitting service with services focused on the east side of Cleveland. We do our best to provide you and your pets with the kind individualized care and attention that you deserve. We offer a variety of standard services but will work with you to construct the perfect service combination to provide custom services to meet the needs of you and your pets. Our passion is making sure your pet has a wonderfully grand time with the Sits N Wiggles staff. Sits N Wiggles has been a long-time dream come true for Valarie and Hannah Ross-Smith. Sits N Wiggles aims to be your pet's best friend while you are away. At SnW, we love bully breeds and rescues, but we love all animals. Because we are a force-free service, we do not promote the use of prong, pinch, training, choke, radio, or shock collars and will not use them when working with your dogs. If you do not have a flat buckle or martingale-style collar or harness, we will bring one with us to use. Also, we do not use retractable aka "Flexi" leads when walking your dog; we do not believe that they provide the control needed to keep dogs safe from any dangers we may come across while out walking and exploring. Valarie Ross-Smith has been an animal lover her whole life. She would train her horses and dogs using positive reinforcement before she even knew that was a thing. She has been a volunteer within the dog rescue community and foster parent for over 15 years. She has studied business and has her master's in business administration. She is currently working on obtaining her dog training certificate. Valarie will be handling most of the administration of Sits N Wiggles and soon will be the head trainer.

Diane is a "Natural Born Dog Trainer". Her talent is not something learned from a text book. She has the Calm, Assertive, Leadership skills that dogs Trust. These same Leadership Qualities have propelled her to become the President of, Adopt A Husky Ohio, Inc., a 501(c) 3 organization. Part of her duties entail assisting experienced foster homes with difficult to handle rescued dogs. The second part of her duties are even more difficult, educating the general public. Adopt a Husky Ohio gets a constant barrage of emails and phone calls from husky owners that had no idea what they were getting into. Problems range from puppy hijinks to severe abuse cases. If you can train a Husky, you can train any breed. Above all, Diane’s integrity is beyond reproach. She will have your dog’s best interest in mind, and you will not over overpromised, or mislead.
