CJ is very knowledgeable about dog training and, I am looking forward to working with her further.
We started looking for a trainer for our German Shepherd (Lucy) a few months back. We found bill at bulletproof dog training on thumbtack and I was very impressed with his background. Bill was very helpful explaining all of his training options, even sending multiple videos. We decided to try another trainer due to the price. After a few lessons with the other trainer we knew Lucy was going to need a different trainer. We dug a little deeper into bullet proof dog training and decided to put plans into action. We dropped Lucy off with bill for 15 days and I simply can not praise these guys enough. We started receiving videos of her a few days later and I thought we were getting videos of a different dog. We were afraid when we got our dog back she would be a robot, but this is not the case. She’s still the playful love able pup we dropped off, but now she listens to us! They spent plenty of time with us when we picked her up to make sure that we were comfortable with all of the commands that were taught. The entire staff was extremely friendly and I could tell they truly cared about Lucy! I’m very glad we found this place and came around, I just wish we would have went with them right away. I highly recommend bulletproof dog training.
We really appreciated all of Cheryl’s help with training our German Shepherd Sasha! Being a first time dog owner I wanted to make sure I was setting my dog up for success and she helped me do that. We also really enjoyed going through the good citizen class!
Melissa is amazing! She has transformed our 3 year old lab into a well-behaved, lead-friendly, walking, fun-family dog. Our 80 lb lab was challenged with many physical issues in her first year of life. She had two major surgeries before she turned one year old, which kept her bed ridden in her crate for the next year. Melissa trained her for two weeks in her own home and Jolene came back a new dog. Melissa then gave us written directions on how to continue Joey's training by correcting our own behavior with regards to Jo's training needs. Jolene is now off to college with our daughter and is well-behaved and loved by all. We highly recommend Melissa's Mutts and Mongrel's for all your dog's (and your) training needs!

I like the fact the trainers have knowledge of the maltese breed. They made me feel welcome and that they will work with me and my baby.
Stephanie and Bret are very professional and extremely knowledgable. They have helped my husband and me turn our dog into a well-behaved German Shepherd Dog. They were quick to respond to my first inquiry about dog training. I like that they not only were interested in our one dog, but also looked at the whole pack (as we have a few dogs) and even evaluated them as a group. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience training your pup.

I offer dog training from puppy to adult dog. No dog is too big or too small to learn some good manners. My goal is that your dog will be a well-mannered animal that is easy to manage and live with.
We have had two sessions with Crystal, and she is a very knowledgeable and supportive trainer. Our dogs have been responding well to her style of training, and we like the progression of her 6-week program. She is responsive and receptive to the needs of the dog (and the owner!).
Bob Marcus trained my Boston Terrier and did an excellent job! He taught him obedience, manners and numerous tricks. When he first started working with my Boston Terrier, the dog had a major problem with aggression toward other dogs after he had been attacked at a dog park. Well those days are over! My Bostie is now a model of good behavior and gets along with other dogs very well. Not only that, but he knows a zillion tricks now-- he can do paddy cake, weave poles, jump through hoops, he will lie down and stay for as long as you want! Bob is patient, easy going and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him highly.
Cathy was a wonderful trainer, she trained our young puppy monk and had him doing everything we wanted in just over a week. She shows her love for animals and i was completely comfortable with leaving my puppy in her care. She is very responsive and helpful. We also asked her on short notice to watch three of our dogs and she did it no problem. Her prices are very reasonable and she will treat your babies like family. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good trainer and some who will treat your pets right.
Elissa is a thorough, skilled and caring trainer. She listened to my concerns/needs. After meeting me and my dog, she developed a workable plan that met my rewards-based method preference. I rescued an 11-month German Shorthaired Pointer who had a very high prey drive and absolutely no recall. My GSP is now a reliable trail and beach dog who responds to a code word and/or whistle. ("Come" no longer worked when we met Elissa.) Elissa worked with us 4-5 times, but mostly she gave me the understanding, skills and followup exercises to work with my dog myself. She explained behavior theory behind the exercises, showed me how to properly carry them out. She followed each training session with detailed notes and other resources. Success wasn't instant, but steady. With Elissa's help, I have a trustworthy companion whom I feel comfortable letting off leash.

I have been a dog trainer, groomer and breeder for 25 years. I finalize the dog behavior and try to take the negative and change to positive behavior.
Joe is an expert trainer of people and pooches. He is patient effective and easygoing yet firm when appropriate. From the moment we met, His experience and genuine concern was evident. This Reassured me that my pup and I were in good hands. He's not only our trainer but also a friend for life.
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.
Steve takes the best possible care of dogs! Dogs just seem to love him! He is very knowledgeable and experienced. I have confidence in his training and understanding of dog behavior. He's a great trainer and also loving and respectful of dogs. He's the best!
