Mike did a fantastic job with our goldendoodle puppy! He was super communicative and flexible through the process. Our puppy had fun training and came home with a great foundation to build on. He is well worth the investment!

Cheryl did an amazing job training my dog. He was only about 12 weeks when she started with him and he has progressed tremendously! She made sure he met all the goals we talked about. I highly recommend her!

I have a dog with high anxiety and needed socialization with other dogs in a non-aggressive manner. Melissa has been excellent in working with her and continues to do so. Flexible schedule, she shows me how to train her and gives me the directions, great rates and highly recommended.

Elissa Cline's dog training is excellent. Four years ago, I thought I was going to have to re-home my rescue border collie. I consulted and worked with several trainers and continued to have fear aggression problem with my dog. Elissa trained me on how to read my dog's cues/ behaviors and set reasonable expectations. She provided me with the tools to have a happy household with my pup. I gained more out of five sessions with Elissa than I had with a year of other trainers.

Cathy is a phenomenal trainer! We left our 12-week old Wheaton Terrier puppy with her for 9 days while we were on vacation. Upon our return, our wild puppy learned to sit, stay, and come to us on command. Cathy also reinforced the housebreaking and socialized our puppy with several other dogs. Cathy is a patient trainer, loves all animals, has a big open farm and a great set-up for training and boarding. Highly recommended - we will definitely use her services again! Geoff & Abby

Paula's Paws Dog Training

When we first met Paula, we had just gotten Bentley, a year old Yorkie. Bentley was very sweet and fit in perfectly. We were surprised when we started having guests over, that he attacked them and even went as far as biting a friend. Paula came to our house and trained us, helping us understand that Bentley was acting out in fear and wasn't an aggressive dog. Through Paula's obedience training, we were able to assure Bentley that we were in control. He no longer attacks visitors, and seems like a much happier dog. Thanks to Paula we now have a dog that our friends and family can also enjoy. If you need guidance with your dog, you will find that Paula has the answer. Paula, thank you very much for all or your help and guidance.

Sam Augaitis is a gifted and talented dog trainer. She trains with positive reward techniques and is able to teach pet parents the value of creating a lasting bond with their dog. Sam is patient and can read a dog's body language extremely well. I have seen her make wonderful progress with dogs that many other trainers might have swept aside.

I have been working with Homeward Bound Pet Care/Katie for a month to socialize and teach my dog (Kona) to walk in packs. Kona is learning fast and enjoys the company of his new pal, Pax! Excellent service, very professional, prompt, reliable - even on a cold rainy day. I highly recommend Homeward Bound!

I gave the grade "good" because I rarely give people "outstanding". Bethany was punctual, nice, good with the dogs. She also was aware of what we (owners) were doing and corrections that we needed to make so that training would work better for the dogs. She also did a nice follow up email summarizing points we went over. We plan on going to a puppy class, but will definitely keep Bethany's phone number in our arsenal for dog training and behavior modification.

The dog and the training was first class. Sadly I live in Oklahoma or I would make a pest out of myself by hanging out there all the time. One of the best results I gained at my short time there was the friendship I left with. I have called back months and years later and still get advice and tips on running my hound. I came there as a client and student and left as a friend. Look forward to the chance to go back again.

We have an Aussie-doodle that was bitten at 5 months and very afraid to socialize. Joe has done an incredible job helping us boost Cooper's confidence and obedience. He is off leash walking, sits and stays and is making strides at being more social. We are very excited to get Cooper to engage with our neighbors large dog and overcome that huge fear! We want our neighbors to see what we see. A super sweet dog! More to come on Joe's awesome skills with that future accomplishment.

Anyone who knows me in person knows that I am 100% obsessed and protective of my dogs. I always strive to give them the best life they deserve. When my class schedule was getting too busy, I needed someone to help me out with the dogs so they weren't cooped up all day. I am so thankful I found Allie because she seems to care for them as much as I do. When I get back from my classes, they are almost too tired to say hi to me! I also really appreciate how she has personalized regimens for each dog. I have a hyper younger dog and an aging dog so they obviously need different workouts. I honestly have no idea what I'd do if Allie wasn't here to help me out. If you're ever in need of an AMAZING dog walker, give Allie a call!!
