She is incredible at dog training. The best part is she trains us on how to train our dog. She notes the difference between forcing a dog to do what you want and teaching the dog through positive reinforcement. She shows ways to train a dog in a way that the dog will enjoy it. She is always on time an very honest. After 1 session my wife accidently paid her for two sessions. She could have just kept the extra money and we would have never known. But she was honest and made sure we knew she got paid for two sessions.
I can not recommend Terry Cook enough it's like I have a brand new dog! To have training where my dog is no longer reactive on a leash but can be off leash as well makes his training one of the best. Thank you Terry!
Fozzie was a wild boy when we first got him - he had so much energy. Julie was fantastic in providing practical tips and support while teaching us in several obedience classes. I wouldn't have survived puppyhood without her!
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!
We took our bulldog puppy to Durfey's Dogs to do some basic obedience. We followed up with additional training as he got older. She did such a wonderful job with him (and us!) that we also took our 4 year old lab mix to her for some refresher training as well as to help her work through some anxiety issues with other dogs. Amy did a great job and had wonderful follow up via text and email.
When we had gotten our Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, we had no idea what we were getting into. After calling numerous trainers, we had chose Megan. Megan stood out with her approach to training; by focusing on positive reinforcement in a flexible way that was designed around our specific needs. Each week, Megan would work with us to determine what our dog was struggling with and what we wanted to focus on in the future. She customized each session to suit our needs and address any behavioral issues we had. In addition to helping us train our 10 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback, she also helped train us to know what we should be doing and why different things would achieve different responses from our puppy. After each session, Megan provided us with "homework" to do before her next visit. Throughout the entire process, we could tell that Megan truly cared for our puppy and wanted to help us learn what we should be doing. Overall, we would strongly recommend working with Megan. In addition to our 6 week obedience classes, we have chosen to have her help us work with our puppy to achieve the canine good citizen certification.
I enrolled my 7 month old American bully pup Jax into Rogers 2 week board in train program. Roger kept us updated daily with status messages and pictures which made the 2 weeks without Jax easier. We missed him like crazy. When we picked up Jax roger went over the e collar and commands with me and my children so we all felt comfortable using it. We were so amazed with what roger had taught Jax. Not only did he teach the commands that were included with the 2 week board in train we paid for but he went above and beyond and taught Jax several advanced commands too! If you are thinking about obedience training for your dog roger is the man to use.
Classes are helpful for all levels of experiences you have with dogs. Both conformation and obedience classes are great!
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.
Our puppy Brooklyn is a very smart dog and was doing ok with training, but we were not succeeding due to our own time availability to work with her and our lack of expertise in areas that she was not excelling in. Brittney & Josh were amazing from the first contact through their explanation of their program. I enjoyed watching all of the videos of the past pets they had worked with. They kept us up to date and informed through the entire process and we loved watching her success on social media. At the "go home" training session for us, they did an excellent job at instructing our entire family and even allowing the kids to be a major part in trying to distract her and show how well she could behave, even with their craziness. We still have to follow-up training with her at home to help her to continue her success but she is leaps and bounds ahead of where she was. We are now able to get her calm by putting her in place which will be so helpful when company arrives or when the kids are trying to get ready in the morning for school. We greatly appreciate the calm and patience that Lead the Way provided and we are excited about our future with our well behaved pup.
Tiffany was great to work with and did an excellent job with Lulu, our goldendoodle puppy. I would highly recommend her!
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.
