This was my 2nd experience with a dog trainer after a previous experience that really left a bad taste in my mouth. But from the moment Lisa came into the house and met my dog I was immediately comforted. She was excellent with my German Shepherd and fixed his aggression and obedience issues within a couple sessions. She even brought her own family over to help deal with my dog's territory issues in the house with guests. Her passion for working with dogs is obvious, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great trainer!
We are still a work in progress but after just one visit we can see a major change in Bixby. Tim is a master at not only training our dog but also training us. I look forward to achieving our goals with Bixby.
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!
The whole experience with Sit Means Sit from Terry driving 2 hours to the house to meet us and give us a demo to dropping off our 2 German Shepherds and picking them up was outstanding! The staff and trainer was very professional and personable and while we were there for the 3 hour training, we were treated as if we were at home! Thank you again Sit Means Sit and Terry for an awesome experience!
Wonderful experience, she did an excellent job training our dog Harrison
The trainer that I talked was very helpful and listened to my needs in training my puppy and even offered additional training in the futurer
A no nonsense approach to training my German Shepherd puppy. Was very supportive and encouraging through the process. Would definitely recommend.

My passion is working with dogs. I have four dogs of my own that I work with and train. I do dog walking. I also do basic dog training and some behavioral issues.
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!!
He worked with Bruno because he wasn’t listening. By the time he left Brian’s he was sitting, listening, staying, and obeying all the commands! Very patient with him. And he kept telling us over and over that patience is what we need and we can’t show him that we are defeated! Brian would keep going back to him and repeating the command over and over again with him. If he didn’t listen, he went back! I was truly impressed! I highly recommend Brian for a trainer!
We use Paradigm K9 for our German Shepherd puppy training. What stands out is Jeff's willingness to be supportive of our puppy training via phone with questions as well as his demonstrated professional training methods. He is knowledgeable about different breeds and their unique traits. He has a plan to ensure training is effective and very rewarding. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone wanting an objective, professional to work with you and your dog for a successful partnership.
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!

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.
Tim took great care of my German shepherd. He was thorough in his training with her, offered wonderful tips to continue her training at home and was great at communicating with me throughout her stay with him. We will definitely have him board her in the future when needed.
We have known Amy since our Goldendoodle was a puppy. Our Goldendoodle had resident training with Amy and our dog responded very well to her training and commands. We recently boarded our dog with Amy and she provided daily feedback, pictures and video clips of our dogs daily activities. The kids looked forward to seeing the photos and videos of our dog while we were on vacation. Amy provided excellent activities and exercise for our dog with several hours of play time outside. We will definitely continue to board our goldendoodle with Amy!
