I cannot say enough about how great my experience was with Tom and Kathleen of Abby Lane Dog Training. We hired them to train our then 8-month-old Saint Bernard named Lucy, for the 6-week Basic Obedience training course. They were so patient with me (because I was really the one that needed the training) Lucy picked everything up right away. They really showed me what a smart dog we have! They were both also very patient with our other dog, Alice, who is a very food territorial pug and would try to keep Lucy away from Tom’s dog treats the entire time they were here. They even gave Alice an Achievement Award certificate at the last class so she wouldn’t feel left out, although the only thing Alice achieved during the training was stealing most of Lucy’s treats! We worked on basic commands like sit, down, and come. I also learned how to walk Lucy without her pulling me all over the place, and how to get her to stop and sit when other dogs are walking by. We also fixed some behavior issues that Lucy was just starting to develop. They have so many tips and tricks and you can tell they genuinely care about the well being of your pet and the fact that you and your pet are both happy in the home. I’m so happy I picked Abby Lane. I hope to have them back for further training when Lucy and I are ready.

Tom and Kathleen were dreams to work with. Very relaxed, very knowledgeable, very relatable - all around great listeners with solutions that work! When my husband and I put in the time with our 12 week old Siberian Husky, Lema, she knew all her basic commands and knew them well by the time 18 weeks rolled around. We are SO thankful that Abby Lane Dog Training was able to come out to us each week, taking our sweet puppy and making her sweeter. Wonderful trainers to work alongside! Tom and Kathleen want you to have a genuinely great dog to grow with and go above and beyond offering up their free time for you to call outside appointment hours for any questions. If you listen, put in the time with you pup, and are patient the results will show! Highly recommend this team! It was a pleasure to work with them these past 6 weeks.

Jen was great! She was very reliable and worked hard training our dog and we have already started to see a distinct difference in her behavior. I was skeptical initially because we had other trainers come with very little results. However, this was not the case with her, in one week we have seen a great difference. If you are thinking about using her,I would recommend her without reservation and you will be sure to see results in your pet and work with a knowledgeable professional!

Kerry has been a sympathetic, empathetic, and thoughtful professional since my first phone call with her in the spring of 2013. I have utilized all of the Darwin Dogs offerings (selection, people training, dog behavior assessment, pack walks) and would, withoutany hesitation, recomend Kerry Stack. The first dog Kerry helped us with blessed and changed our family forever. I am eternally grateful and indebted to you for your support Kerry. My toddler with struggles would not be the person he is today if Alley Girl was not there for him. Thank you. Now, Max is teaching me many lessons , and Kerry, three seasons latter, is still expanding the way I think. Finally, when it was necessary Kerry interacted with my vet. He was throughly impressed with her professionalism and knowledge, and stated that I was working with the right person. Of course, I already knew that.

Our time with Kerry was very informational and eye-opening. She helped me to realize that many things I had learned about dog training in the past were setting my puppy up for failure and me up for a lifetime of frustration . And some of his bad habits that I found so frustrating were a result of my own rearing. She showed me products and ways that I could work with him that will help his mental and physical well-being. Just her presence when she walked in the room immediately gained his control and showed me that I could do it to. I can't wait to see how well he progresses and would suggest her services to anyone with a dog who has a big heart (and an affinity for chewing, jumping, and not listening)

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.

We adopted a lab/pit mix for our first family dog. My husband and I had always grew up with dogs but had no clue how to train one ourselves. Ontop of never training a dog we came to find out that our little pup had post traumatic stress from something that happened to her as a baby. We got in contact with Susie Says Sit for help, she was the best thing we could have done for our puppy! She arrived right on time and taught us exactly how to train our dog. She answered all of our questions settled all of our insecurities and was even available for questions by phone if needed. We would definitely recommend Susie says sit!

Brought 2 of my dogs for separate board and trains and one thing that made it so incredibly easy to leave them was because I knew these trainers would treat them like their own. They took such great care of my two furbabies. My dogs are vastly different and they were really able to pick up quick on their training needs, establish some great ground work and really gave the family the skills to be able to continue the training and progress at home. They even let me bring my other dog that wasn't being trained by them to the classes to be able to teach me how to correct behaviors while they all 3 were together. They were very helpful in listening to all of my questions and also kept me posted on progress through text, pics and videos often. Thanks so much! Looking forward to continue this training at home and keep these dogs disciplined, stimulated and happy. I will definitely be reaching back out for boarding in the future!

Angie has taught me how to handle my dog, and in return, my dog is a much better behaved pet. She really listened to my concerns and made a plan to work on each one of them. I highly recommend Angels in the Infield! Professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about training dogs (and their people).

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 dog was very receptive to her and she worked with the dog until the dog understood what she wanted it to do. She also wrote up the protocol of the things we went over so I could continue with the training. My dog has several problems and she addressed all of them. I know it will take a while to reverse my dog's bad habits but I think we have a very good start. She even took my dog for a little walk which was great since I am unable to do that.

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!

I have been using Jeff as my main trainer for over a year. My dog is off the charts nice and smart. We owe it to him! He is unbelievably nice and uses only positive training methods. My dog understands and responds to over 150 commands.(prob. more) Her name is Lilly and she is a 13 month old West Highland Terrier. He is well worth every penny and then some. Lilly literally follows every command we give her. She is also a certified service dog and TDI therapy dog. She visits nursing a home at least once a month.

I have been on the market for puppy training classes for Remy, my 9-week-old Frenchie, for a week or so now and have been in contact with many people. Sissie is by far the most responsive, the best communicator, and the most flexible trainer that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. She even took a phone call from me at 10:50 PM and discussed her training methods and expressed her genuine excitement to meet Remy. On that phone call, Sissie gave me a tip on how to capture Remy's attention while in the middle of chewing something I don't want him to be chewing, and it worked like a charm! And that was just through the phone! Sissie really knows what she is doing and truly cares about her clients and their fur babies. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

Paula was so incredibly wonderful with our three dogs. They would get just as excited to see her as they would us! (Perhaps even more so, since she gives them such delicious snacks after walks). We always felt extremely at ease when we left our dogs with Paula while we were on vacation. She would send picture updates, and make sure our pups weren't missing us at all! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to give their dog some extra exercise throughout the week, or if you are looking for someone to watch your furbaby while you are away!

My dogs love Paula. I call her the dog whisperer. Paula has groomed and boarded my dogs for a long time and takes great care of them. They always look beautiful after she's groomed them. She also takes loving care of them when we're on vacation so we can relax. When we pick them up, they're beautiful and healthy. And we appreciate the pictures she sends of our dogs while we're away. I can't recommend Paula highly enough. She's an experienced and loving dog handler.

Paula is a wonderful person who is amazing with dogs. She helped our somewhat nervous Vizsla settle into her new surroundings wonderfully, coming back from each field trip well-exercised and more relaxed. A big move from overseas had her a little nervous about her new surroundings and neighbour-dogs. Paula helped her to feel safe in a pack, and gave her the help she needed to remember how to speak dog and meet other dogs without feeling threatened. We miss her dearly!

Rachel was a god send for my fiance and I. We had taken our deaf great dane to a training class recommended by our vet, which we soon after realized that this trainers style was NOT for us. A good friend of ours gave us Rachel's info and within a week or so she was in our living room dog whispering our 3 month old pup. Her training style and effectiveness made us excited about training our dog. She has the perfect foundation of the ideal dog trainer. She also continues to be a great help and makes herself available whenever an issue comes along. Would definitely recommend!

I have a golden retriever that was pulling me down the street and beagle who was aggressive. We trained at Lorenzo's with marcus and he was amazing. He helped us gain control over our rambunctious dogs. He even got my beagle to stop being afraid of every. Since then we haven't had any more accidents in the house and walking down the street is actually fun now. I would recommend marcus to anyone who wants a dog you can take anywhere and not have any worries.

About

I have been training dogs for over 25 years. I believe dogs do not do things for no reason. Many times behavioral problems are caused by the repetition and constituency of their family/pet parent. Stopping a behavior as it is a thought verses an action; teach the human to read their dog and understand why the dog is doing what they are doing can normally solves most "bad" dog issues. Some if not all can be controlled by using basic obedience. A strong foundation is the key to success. Obedience and helping pet parents understand their dog is one of the many services I provide. I also offer pet sitting, (your home, small dogs mine as well) IKT ( In kennel training) and I have to say...I love cats and also offer cat sitting:)
