I cannot say enough about how great my experience was with Tom and Kathleen of Abby Lane Dog Training. We hired them to train our then 8-month-old Saint Bernard named Lucy, for the 6-week Basic Obedience training course. They were so patient with me (because I was really the one that needed the training) Lucy picked everything up right away. They really showed me what a smart dog we have! They were both also very patient with our other dog, Alice, who is a very food territorial pug and would try to keep Lucy away from Tom’s dog treats the entire time they were here. They even gave Alice an Achievement Award certificate at the last class so she wouldn’t feel left out, although the only thing Alice achieved during the training was stealing most of Lucy’s treats! We worked on basic commands like sit, down, and come. I also learned how to walk Lucy without her pulling me all over the place, and how to get her to stop and sit when other dogs are walking by. We also fixed some behavior issues that Lucy was just starting to develop. They have so many tips and tricks and you can tell they genuinely care about the well being of your pet and the fact that you and your pet are both happy in the home. I’m so happy I picked Abby Lane. I hope to have them back for further training when Lucy and I are ready.

Jennifer G.
Verified review

We decided to work with Jennifer because of her experience with Rottweilers - we are so glad we did! She has been terrific! Before we started working with Jennifer, we felt overwhelmed trying to manage some of the behavior issues of our 2 dogs (an AmStaff and a Rottweiler). Just from the first session, Jennifer's calm demeanor and immediate rapport with our dogs made me feel less frazzled and hopeful about improving their behavior. After 5 sessions with Jennifer, we've made significant progress. She's given us the tools to curb the AmStaff's jumping on people and reactivity to other dogs while on the leash that have helped considerably. She also helped with basic obedience for the Rottweiler, who came to us with virtually no training. I cannot recommend L'Chaim Canine highly enough!

I absolutely loved Kerry from Darwin dogs! In just two hours we accomplished everything from basic obedience, separation anxiety, behaviors in public and treadmill walking! Not only did she have amazing control over my out of control dog but she gave my husband and I the tools to keep up with his training regimen. I consistently check her Facebook for little tips and hints!

Absolutely amazing! Susie is incredibly knowledgeable and helped teach us techniques to turn our 6 month old lab mix into a well mannered dog. After just one week, we already notice a difference in him! Would recommend Susie to any dog owner looking for one on one obedience training!

Angie has taught me how to handle my dog, and in return, my dog is a much better behaved pet. She really listened to my concerns and made a plan to work on each one of them. I highly recommend Angels in the Infield! Professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about training dogs (and their people).

Jeff S.
Verified review

Having had dogs before, I had a basic understanding of the time and effort that goes into training a dog. It has been many years since our last dog and this time, training a puppy also meant training children to the same routine that we want the dog to learn and grow with. Working with Jeff has been a pleasure. He has provided me with good reminders as to how I need to approach our puppy. He has also provided me with my one-on-one training, so that I know how to instruct my wife and kids in their approach to our puppy. Having a dog in the house allows for great companionship as well as security. Having a dog that respects your authority and responds to your commands allows you to have a smooth interaction and a peaceful home!

Jennifer the trainer really is outstanding. She goes 'above and beyond' (for example: she has taken evening phone calls from us for pep talks in between sessions). She is so good at what she does because she genuinely cares about the dogs and their human owners, and it shows. She is realistic and pulls no punches explaining that training is WORK, yet is kind and encouraging every step of the way. She has given us the tools to take a challenging & stressful situation on, make a plan, and see it through. We are seeing results in short time and trust that, if we stick with it, we are going to get the kind of RESULTS that will make the investment so incredibly worthwhile.

David was very honest with me about my puppys training progress. He told me that she was very advanced for her age and that he was not comfortable taking my money when he was just going to teach her the same thing, but that he was always just a call away if a problem arose or even if I just wanted to bounce things off of him. I was extremely pleased with his professionalism and honesty and will be working with him for any training that we do need!

Cindy did a great job working with our dog, Bruce. She also helped my wife and I really get on the same page when it comes to training our dog. She came over to our house, was on time, very pleasant and MUCH BETTER than going to a group training class or something of the sort.

Marie-Josee is a very accessible and knowledgable dog trainer. I've been working with her for about 4 years. She provides practical instruction. She manages expectations about what you and your dog will be able to do and acknowledges when milestones have been reached. Working with Marie-Josee, I've been able to get my challenging pup to do things I'd never thought he'd be able to do, like playing nice with other dogs. Thanks, Marie-Josee!
