Lisa has been working with us in training our boxer puppy. Her technique is a loving firm approach. Our puppy is becoming a well disciplined dog. We look forward to working with Lisa. Our dog, Georgia, works hard to please her and likes her a lot.
Terry Cook is a great dog trainer with so much experience and he breaks everything down into understandable steps! I had a Pit Bull Terrier that was very reactive to strangers and her surroundings plus I wouldn't dream of her being off leash. Yet with obedience and behavior modification mixed all together after 6 private lessons I have an off leash dog that gets so many compliments out in public! Highly recommended!
Katie was one of the trainers who trained my service dog as a puppy. Without Katie's hard work, Leni would not be the partner for me that she is. Leni is not a quiet, obedient dog. She has a mind of her own and can be a bit too smart for her own good. Katie set the foundation for Leni's training when she was a puppy so that she could be the dog she is for me today. I now rely on Leni as my medical alert dog to keep me safe, and it is the obedience training foundation and task training that she received that make her able to do her job and do it well. Having Leni has changed my life, and the training Katie did with her has been a huge reason that Leni has become the service dog that she is. Katie is incredibly talented as a trainer and knows how to connect with each dog to get the best out of them. Choosing Katie to train your dog will not disappoint!
I've worked with Julie as a dog trainer in both group classes and private sessions. I find her to be very knowledgeable with an infectious enthusiasm and an ability to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. Also available for phone consults. Very professional and always responds in a timely fashion. I highly recommend her to anyone I speak to.
Amy is a patient, kind, and knowledgeable trainer...My dog and I have attended two different classes and benefitted greatly from each one. Her training is to the point and she makes it fun for both the dog and owner. I highly recommend her!
Amy is a great resource. She is an experienced dog trainer and we learned so much from her gentle but firm training methods. Our growing puppy is doing well because of the structure Amy helped us put in place. She is reliable, responsible and trustworthy. I am looking forward to working with her for animal watching (have chickens, too) in the future. And maybe another puppy! Thank you and have a great day!
I don't get my pup back until next saturday. She is a very young dog. Paige and Jordon aren't rushing her and if u look at the video. The 1st 6 days were unremarkable.
Everything about Jeff is awesome! We have a boxer who at the time of training was 9 months. He was not fun to walk, he would jump all over people when they entered the home, wouldn't do simple commands like sit. We had a newborn and had to do something! We put him through the pet smart training and it did nothing. After two weeks with Jeff and his residency program he is a changed dog! We couldn't ask for a better dog. He now walks great on the leash and even better off! He. No longer jumps on people and sit is really no longer something I have to ask it's just something he does most of the time!
Sean did a great job working with our dog. Our pup had some issues with aggression towards strangers, and Sean did a great job of working through those issues, and giving us tools to help us continue to teach him good habits!
Not only is Megan incredibly afforable, but she is very patient, laidback, and serious about dogs! She has worked wonderfully with my schedule and has never scold me for having to reschedule training (I am a student). She is very patient with my corgi, Gravity, and only uses positive reinforcement. Gravity loves her! Because she is younger than a lot of dog trainers out there, I felt a lot more comfortable with her. No intimidation whatsoever. As a plus, Megan has been completely open about me texting her questions about training, problems.etc and gets back with thorough replies quickly everytime! She even writes clear, easy to read 'homework' for me after each session, so I can successfully continue Gravitys training. She is definitely be my 'go-to' dog trainer from now on!
The owner Brian is very good with our dog. He treated him like he was his. He was very professional and patient with him. He was very very good.
Tim was very helpful in helping us to control our new puppies and gave ideas to try on the older dog we have. He was very good with animals...and wish he could visit our dogs more often.
So glad to have found Tim to work with my 2 dogs. It is wonderful being able to have house visits for my senior “pup” who does not kennel well. Tim has also helped me and my boxer to leash train which I wasn’t too confident about achieving- Tim made it happen in one session. My dogs love him and that makes it all worth it!
Wonderful experience, she did an excellent job training our dog Harrison
Melisa Greenberg has taken excellent care of our 17-month-old yellow lab, Sammy, on multiple occasions. Melisa isn't the average pet sitter; she goes above and beyond to provide extra love, care, and attention that one cannot find at a large boarding facility. Leaving Sammy in Melisa's care is like leaving a child with his/her grandparent. It is always a comforting feeling to know that Sammy is happy and content while we are away. She sends us videos, pictures, and text message updates about his daily activities. She talks to him, interacts with him, and gives him oodles of one-on-one attention. Sometimes they venture to dog parks, sometimes they hike in the woods, and other times they walk in our neighborhood. Sammy is always wagging his tail and up for an adventure with Melisa. I honestly think he is depressed when vacation care ends!! Not only is it evident that Melisa has a genuine love for animals, she also exudes professionalism to the highest standard. She is bonded and insured with over a decade's experience in the Columbus corporate world. Melisa is punctual, trustworthy, serious about her clients and scheduled appointments, and most of all, she delivers unmatched customer service. It is without a doubt that we will continue to use Melisa for dog walking and vacation care and Sammy will continue to adore her playful attention and cuddle time.
All the commands our GS was taught was unbelievable. From sit, down, come, place, heel, stay, touch, break, break then sit, break then down, thru, long distance stay then break, walking off leash, Heel to sit on left side, and watch. Our dog is amazing. But sooo much more amazing because of this Off leash Training class. Yes Going into this class our dog knew more than half these commands already but honestly NOT LIKE HE DOES NOW. ITS CRAZY. Taking this class was the best thing. He is like a completely different dog. THANKS SOOOO MUCH Roger White you are truly the best and it shows each class and dog means alot to u. He is very patient and takes his time teaching on their level. Every week we came to class he made us feel welcome and happy to see us. Keep up the good work!!!! Hands down BEST dog trainer in the area and we even drove one hour and 15 minutes each week to get the BEST!!!
Carol was our best dog and house sitter by far. I will ALWAYS ask Carol to help us out with future vacation coverage. She stayed at our house at night to keep our 3 crazy dogs company. Carol made chicken stock, chicken, carrots and peas to mix with their dry food. She played with them on a daily basis and Carol even bought them toys. Our dogs are not small. Two are 90 lbs. and 1 is 80 lbs. Our 80 lb. male Boxer can be aggressive toward the other dogs at times. I believe Carol said there was one incident. We love our dogs and of course treat them like our children. Carol continued to treat them as children and made them happy. Carol has dogs of her own that she babies too. She checked the mail, watered the plants and kept the house very clean when the dogs would track in dirt and mud. Carol was at our home for the entire month of February and the dogs miss her very much. Carol IS THE BEST!!!! We love you Carol, Lynn, Zoe, Nana and Buddy xoxoxo
Ami is an excellent trainer! We started working with her when our puppy was 3 months old. After we filled out Ami's questionnaire, she came up with a training plan. She immediately stressed the importance of socialization at this age and got our puppy started with basic commands (I didn't even realize you could teach commands to puppies that young!). But most importantly, Ami got us off to a great start and she set us up for success. She is outgoing and personable and can teach both dog and owner. Training sessions were always fun. I know she will always be a great resource for us. And I know we'll reap the benefits of a well behaved, happy dog for many years to come! Our puppy loves Ami and so do we! So glad we found her!
A talented dog trainer who knows how to work with my dogs and with me! Often my dogs are responding to something I'm doing (wrong) and I don't realize it. Lauren is able to see how my actions and emotions play into my dog's behavior. Her experience with rescue groups also provides background knowledge on animals and how they interact with other dogs and with people that just can't be taught. She's put in years of time with dogs and people and you can tell. I highly recommend her as a trainer!!
Alicia was wonderful with my chihuahua! She gave me great advice to help with Lola's inappropriate urination. I'll definitely be recommending her to friends and family with dogs who have behavioral issues. Thank you so much, Alicia!

I have had many years of experience with animals. I have a unique way with bonding with and training dogs. I use commands and signals that are very easy to use and remember. I also use a reward system every time an animal does the command I asked. I will reward them with a treat. If they don't do the command I ask them to do, I repeat over and over again until they get it. Remember, things just don't happen overnight; it takes time and patience. I treat dogs a lot like children. My two dogs are a lot like my two-year-old daughter to me. If you are interested, you can contact me. Please tell your name and a brief message, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I do charge $10 an hour, and there is a contract we will have to go over and sign. I only work an animal 3 to 4 days a week for about 3 hours a day. The contract will also have information I need to know to know about the animal attached to it. Thanks a lot.
