Tom and Kathy are not only professional, knowledgable, and friendly, they are also very, very brave. After a free in home consultation, my mom purchased the very reasonably priced obedience training lasting six weeks. She has 4 Great Danes ranging from 115-150 pounds and they can be a little intimidating but Tom and Kathy came to her house and jumped right in. Tom was great at explaining the commands and behavior that is expected and how to correct bad behavior/habits; this applies to the dogs as well as my mom and me. Tom was also flexible in scheduling the training sessions and available by phone when we had questions or concerns in between sessions. He also tailored the training to each of the dogs' personalities and used different techniques or equipment based on their responses. For example, the Martingale collar worked better for one dog, a harness for another dog, and a haltie for another. My mom and I are both very happy with the changes we see in the dogs behavior and will definitely recommend Abby Lane to friends and family. Big thanks to Tom, Kathy, and little Simba!

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.

I train dogs using behavior modification and positive training methods. I tutor owners in dog psychology to help them understand their dog. Your dog should bring joy to you and your family. I help achieve that goal. I was a senior trainer for Petco in Northeast Ohio in 2007-2008. Since then, I have been doing private training and volunteering to train at shelters and dog adoption events.

Cindy is simply the best. My Pitbull is a completely different dog after her wonderful training. We both look forward to our sessions and my puppy loves to show off his good behavior and new tricks!

Christy responded to my description with a plan specifically tailored to my needs, not a general training plan. Due to this, I chose her. We have had one lesson, and I have been working on repeating her techniques at home. Tonight we had a potentially bad situation where a neighborhood dog got loose and tore across the street towards us I was walking my dog. While I could not do all of what Christy had said to do based on the situation, I will say that my dog responded at a less intense level than I would have expected. This is a great thing. I recommend Christy Paxton's Hand in Paw.

I have been training dogs (especially stubborn ones) for 10 years. I have worked with many breeds and mutts, though my specialties are Siberian huskies and bully breeds. Dogs that are hard to train are the most fun! My focus is on cultivating a wonderful working relationship between dog and owner so training becomes easier with time. I educate you and your best friend. The goals of dog training, in my work are (1) teaching you to communicate with your dog so you no longer need a trainer and (2) teaching your dog to work with you. Whether your dog is a terror or just needs a little work, I can help! Housebreaking, barking, jumping, and aggression are problems we can solve together. If your dog is wonderful but you'd like to improve your relationship or teach him some new tricks, I can help.
