We adopted a lab/pit mix for our first family dog. My husband and I had always grew up with dogs but had no clue how to train one ourselves. Ontop of never training a dog we came to find out that our little pup had post traumatic stress from something that happened to her as a baby. We got in contact with Susie Says Sit for help, she was the best thing we could have done for our puppy! She arrived right on time and taught us exactly how to train our dog. She answered all of our questions settled all of our insecurities and was even available for questions by phone if needed. We would definitely recommend Susie says sit!

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.

About

Rachel was a god send for my fiance and I. We had taken our deaf great dane to a training class recommended by our vet, which we soon after realized that this trainers style was NOT for us. A good friend of ours gave us Rachel's info and within a week or so she was in our living room dog whispering our 3 month old pup. Her training style and effectiveness made us excited about training our dog. She has the perfect foundation of the ideal dog trainer. She also continues to be a great help and makes herself available whenever an issue comes along. Would definitely recommend!

Our lives without Lisa would be much harder. Not only are we able to leave our girl with her at The Doggie Inn and know she is being impeccably taken care of, but she has helped both our dog and ourselves enjoy each other more through her thorough and thoughtful training. Our girl Maeby is a "challenge", and Lisa has given her (and us!) the skills we needed to work through her separation anxiety and wean her off medicine. She has empowered all of us and is ALWAYS there if we have a question or need a refresher lesson. The Doggie Inn is a gorgeous, well cared for facility that Maeby loves to visit. I highly recommend Lisa and The Doggie Inn for all your training and boarding needs.

We have been working with Daniel for about 2 months now as he is training Marley, my son's service dog. Daniel is very knowledgeable in every department with dogs. You can see his passion at what he does in every session. And I am already pleased at the progress we have made. I highly recommend Daniel!

Our experience working with Gayle to get our very shut down foster dog ready for adoption has been exceptional. We tried several other trainers prior to finding Gayle and were about ready to give up and have him placed in another home as his issue were becoming worse instead of better. Her 'positive' training approach has made such a huge difference and we now have a happy, confident, loving, adoptable pooch. She is always available to address our concerns and shares all available material to keep us moving in the right direction. With her guidance we feel confident taking in another dog with a difficult past and saving the life of a shelter dog. Couldn't be happier!

About

Heather installed an invisible fence in our large front and back yards, and gave us good advice about how large an area to enclose. She trained our dog in adapting to the fence and completely understood his temperament (he was a rescue dog and very nervous). We have used her several times since: repairs after line was cut, enclose our vegetable garden, check on unit (she determined that it was out of order due to lightning). She is responsive and makes time to come as soon as you need her. She is honest, and hardworking (she installed our fence in the middle of winter in several inches of snow). I can't say enough good things about her!

About

Does your dog have issues? I work one on one with dog owners to correct behavior problems. I travel to the home to consult with the owner(s) and observe the problems that need addressing. I educate owners in the areas of dog psychology, body language and methods of correction. At the end of the first visit, usually lasting anywhere from one and a half to two hours, I set up a plan for the owners to follow for the next week or two. I return at the end of that time to follow up and check progress. If further sessions are necessary, I will advise the owner of that at that time. I specialize in aggression cases. I have been fortunate to have been able to save several dogs from having to go to shelters or be put to sleep. I absolutely love what I do, and it shows in my work. I will go the extra mile for my clients. The method I use is cheaper, in most cases, and more in depth and effective than traditional obedience training. My clients love the fact that they can use the knowledge I give them with any dog they may own in the future and never have to pay for training again. Clients love that, after trying everything else with little or no success, I can step in and correct the problem in 1-3 visits. I will travel anywhere within 2 hours of Cleveland, Ohio.
