Tom and Kathleen are amazing. Since the training began we have seen marked differences every week. The puppies are so much more behaved. Will continue on to the next level of training with Abby Lane. I highly recommend them. Truly wonderful people, excellent professionalism, fun to work with and great to all dogs.
Jennifer was very helpful in training. I was very happy that she actually had rottweilers herself. Every question I had, she knew an answer to. She was very knowledgeable and obviously did her research and learned everything she could avout training. I will most definitely use her again, as well as recommend her. Thanks Jennifer!
Kerry did an amazing job teaching me and my family techniques to control my dog's behavior. She was friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable about dog training. I highly recommend her to anyone having trouble with their dog.
Susie did a good job with training my puppy Max 2 yrs ago. She trained me as well. Max has been an enjoyable member of my family thanks to Susie's training. He loves it when the grand kids come over.and greets adults as well without jumping on them. When people are eating he doesn't beg or disturb them. I would recommend Susie to anyone seeking an excellent dog trainer should contact Susie Huber.
It’s my pleasure to write a review for Complete Canine Training, and for my dear personal friend, Robin Stone. I can attest to Robin's strength of character and compassion for both people and animals. Robin is caring, compassionate, loyal, and trustworthy, and has spent years perfecting her craft of training animals. I have worked together with Robin on many occasions, doing pack walks, and have witnessed her commitment firsthand. The time I have spent volunteering, is an extremely small percentage of time that Robin has given the canine community, and many other animal that have needed help. Robin has spend countless hours helping animals, and has always amazed me with her commitment to animals that most other people would give up on. Robin has rescued animals that nobody else thought could be saved. On a more personal level, Robin has a spirit of giving and skill for making others feel welcome in her presence. She is just a genuine loving and caring person. Robin is a cherished friend, and an all around incredible person. She is thoughtful, reliable, and just a fun person to be around. Robin has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is today, and she truly deserves all the success that has come her way training animals, and I’m sure she will continue to grow both her business, and her success. If you want someone that will love and care for your pet as much as you love and care for them, look no further; Robin Stone is the best of the best!
My husband and I got our Border Collie (Isis) when he was 8 weeks old. We started training classes with Cindy soon after. Isis is almost 10 years old now.over those nine plus years we went through basic, Intermediate, clicker, canine good citizen, agility, o-gility...pretty much everything Cindy offers. The classes are fun and informative, a great bonding experience for you and your dog. Once we ran out of classes we just kept going back. Cindy is an excellent teacher and trainer. You will learn just as much as your dog if not more. Isis loves going to "school" as we call it. Just saying the word "school" to him makes his ears perk up then he dashes to the back door ready to go. Cindy makes dog training (school) something to look forward to every week. Thanks Cindy.
Barbara was very professional and yet very friendly. She taylored her training and tips specifically for our dog's breed. She was very knowledgeable, showed us exactly how to work with our puppy and made sure we were doing the techniques properly. We have seen a huge difference already, although we plan to do more training sessions to work on more skills and address any new questions. We are so glad we found Barbara and can't recommend her highly enough!
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!
Tina contacted me right away but we aren't having our first training session until April.
Sharon was very helpful training my 10 month old puppy. She took the time to explain the exercises we needed to work on over the course of our training. He was a little out of control with destructive behavior and jumping on everyone who came in. With the help of Sharon I now have a better behaved dog!
Excellent experience. Gina did a great job walking us through potty training our dogs. She really knows her stuff and the dogs relate well to her. Gina also does a great job with children. She has a former teaching background. As a result, she can really get the dog training points across to the children as well as the owners. Would highly recommend a few sessions with Gina.
Marcus is a wonderful trainer. He knows what he is doing and you can tell he really loves what he does. He works so well with my dog and my husband and I to ensure that we all are on the same page with training. Definitely worth the price.

There are two things: 1) Because I am an armature trainer, I'm cheap. I negotiate per client the price. It depends on how much work needs done with a dog. 2) I won't hesitate to do some research and find out how to do something for your dog.
I train dogs for obedience and manners. I also can train them to seek and find. I have always had a love for dogs and would love to help you with yours.
