I highly recommend Cynthia and assure you will be extremely happy with her services. I left my 7 month old German Shepherd,Kobe, with her for 3 weeks. It was difficult to be away from him for so long but worth it. Kobe walks great on a leash now. He follows commands sit, stay, off, come, place, and down. He even sits and waits at the door nicely before being released to go through the doorway. Cynthia treats your dog as her own. While Kobe was in her care, she identified some stomach issues and changed his food, with my permission. As a result, Kobe's stomach issues improved. It was evident upon picking Kobe up, at the end of his 3 weeks of training, that Kobe had bonded with Cynthia. On pickup day, she spends the time needed for you to feel comfortable learning all the commands your dog has learned and teaches you how to walk with your dog correctly. Please choose Cynthia for your dog's training needs. You will be very satisfied with your pup's progress.

We have seen great improvement with our puppy thanks to Molly, our Great Dane has been leash reactive and would not listen to us when there were other dogs around. she has shown huge improvement and we are very happy with the training that both we and our dog received. I totally recommend her services.

Molly Wong came today and after just an hour and a half I knew she was the perfect trainer. Our dog responded very quickly and we learned so much that we can immediately put into our daily routine. I'm very grateful.

Great job! My dog needed help to not pull on walks. Now she is not only the cutest dog ever, she is now the most well behaved.

Haley is wonderful! My new shelter dog is so, so anxious and we were lost before Haley. She has given us the tools to help him adjust and train him into becoming the family dog he wants to be. She is respectful and sensitive to him and our family. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Very knowledgeable! Hayley got together with us before we even got our puppy to offer advice on how to make the transition easier for everyone. Our dog was sitting by the first training session and laying down the next!

Nicole was amazing! We only had a few days with her and she taught us everything she possibly could. She was assertive with our pup and help us do the same. My husband did the sessions with me and while he practiced with our dog, I practiced with Flynn, Nicole's well trained Australian Shepherd. That proved to best way for us to learn as we were both able to be active. Watching her with her dog provided a great example to us if what we were training our dog to do. Nicole was patient and very helpful. He repeated herself often and encouraged us to take notes to ensure that we grasped every concept she taught us. Our 6 month old puppy is doing great! He walks well on a leash and obeys commands like come, sit, down, stay, and heel. We are now practicing of leash training and with Nicole's help he is doing great! I would recommend her to anyone who has adopted a dog of any age.

Nicole was fantastic in training my very challenging dog. Although it’s an ongoing process and I still have quite a bit of work to do, Nicole laid the foundation and helped me gain my dog’s respect. I really appreciated that her board and train program included 5 individual sessions with me and my dog.

Risa is a lover of dogs and dog lovers. She has worked with my daughter for over a year with a rescue dog, Lexie. Risa has been patient in the training--she does not move on if more work is needed in a particular area, either on behalf of the dog or the owner. We have appreciated her work with us, and Lexie is a much more pleasant part of our family now. Risa also has a heart for pairing folks with disabilities with therapy dogs. Training and therapy dogs--Risa at George and Friends is THE Go-To Person!

Ashley is awesome! She's so caring and respectful towards the animals and their humans. I have had her stay for overnights to take care of my dogs, horses, and goats and have had her come for midday visits to let the dogs get their wiggles out. I've referred her to many friends and family members and have received excellent feedback about how grateful they are to have someone they trust working with their furkids! Also, having a positive reinforcement dog walker/pet sitter is so crucial for the well being of the animals, so I am very thankful to have found someone who values humane and effective techniques.

Our family adores Ashley and so does our little dog, Bowie. We are so glad she came into our lives! We thought we were just getting a dog walker, but we got that and someone who is invested in our dog's training and success. Ashley is working with Bowie to make sure his transition from being a stray to being a beloved family pet is smooth and healthy for everyone. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Ashley walks out dog, Abby. She goes out of her way to send us pictures of how she's doing, what sort of training they worked on, and if there were any behaviors that were concerning. Ashley is very reliable and she adores animals with all her heart! You can tell what passion she has for her job and working with my pet. I highly recommend Ashley to anyone!

My wife and I found Jeff at the sportsmen show earlier this year. We carefully explained to Jeff that I have had many dogs in the past but had always wanted a proffesionaly trained retiever. I explained I was adamant about the limited use of shock collar and a dog focused on hunting from a boat. Jeff said he focused on my concerns and the type of hunting I wanted a partner for. Jeff took my 90 lb over weight dog and returned to me a 70 lb dog that was all about hunting. After working her for two months I asked Jeff for some help with advanced tactics that I was struggling with, he provided me with advice that I found invaluable in completing my dogs training. After this season I intend to use Jeff's facility for another week of his proffesional training help to give closure to any new tactics I may want to add to my dogs abilities. Both Heather (Jeff's wife) and Jeff provide a environment that was easy for my dog to acclimate too and quickly be ready to meet the challenge given her.

Olive's passion for animals is obvious - from eager pups to tired old pooches she loves and cares for each on an individualized basis. She's responsive - frequently sending images of our animals in her care, she's courteous and respectful when staying overnight in our home and her prices are very reasonable. Could not recommend her and her services enough!

Olive has helped us with our three dogs for nearly two years, and we'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent dog walker and sitter. We love her almost as much as our dogs do!

Bringing our Shiba inu to Holly was the best thing we ever did. We were at our wits end and didn't know what to do with her aggression. Holly took her in and treated her like her own with love and she has never been better! She listens, places, sits, comes, everything. We can have her around company and finally a real part of our family. Wouldn't have made it without Holly. She kept is updated and assured that she was greatly cared for when we did to want to let her go, well my boyfriend. :) best trainer out there! Do what's best for your family!!

About

This is a two year program that teaches the individual to train their own service dog. We train for mobility, medical and hearing alert. During the two years the student learns not only basic obedience, but advanced service skills. They are taught about dog health and welfare in a positive reinforcement environment. Our goal is for the individual to understand the training process so well, that as their needs change they are able to train their dog to meet those needs. Thank you!

I have been working with animals all of my life. And yes, I'm at a "mature" age!! You need to balance people, emotional beings, with dogs, pack animals. I feel we should not try to make dogs into people, but meet them halfway with communication. We becoming part dog and they becoming more compliant to human needs.
