Elaine was great! She was prompt at responding to my request and we had a session with her within a week of contact. She was professional and helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their dog's behavior. She got right to the heart of our issues and we saw improvement almost immediately. People who know us and our dogs are commenting they can see the difference. 2 thumbs up!

Steve put me so at ease and made so much sense in what he was teaching me regarding my dog's behavior. I believe this will be a fairly easy process as long as I follow his instructions. Would definitely refer him to friends.

Sandy was very caring about our dog and extremely knowledgeable about our dog's behavior. She followed up with us after the training session. Would recommend her to everyone.

We are first time puppy parents and our fur baby is a handful to say the least. When searching for a trainer, Deb immediate won we over by asking to talk via the phone. She breaks it down so we can understand his behavior from a dog's mindset. She is very invested in our mental health and our puppy's overall well being. Highly recommend!

Nico is absolutely incredible. My dog has come so far and truly enjoys his training. I used to pull my hair out over my dogs behavior, but since Nico came along my dog is patient, focused, and always eager to learn something new. I will definitely be continuing to advanced training with Nico.

Reliable, shows up when she says every time. Hard to say dog interaction since we are not home when she walks the dogs. Will continue to use her.

We have two French Bulldogs (brothers)...one started to "resource guard" and was becoming very aggressive towards the other, we had actually thought he might have to go live with a family member which we did not want to do. I contacted Canines with Class and we scheduled our sessions asap! Lisa was very helpful, she was able to teach my family techniques on how to control his behavior but also to understand the behavior, which is important, plus she was able to help us with other basic obedience training. They responded well to Lisa, they were very excited to see her each visit!! We are so glad we made that call....we no longer have to consider seperating them. We can't not thank Lisa enough for helping us!!

Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.

Heather accomplished more in 3 sessions than previous dog trainers who spent much, much more time, but were less knowledgeable about how to effectively handle my dog's behavioral problems. She went directly to the problem behavior and after each session had produced lasting results. Everyone says my dog is like a whole different dog while maintaining his great enthusiasm for being alive. Positive training and rewards all the way. I would highly recommend her services. She doesn't just talk, she delivers.

Almost seven years ago, my husband and I adopted a precious 3 year old Pomeranian who had lived his life tied to a tree. Little did we know, he would quickly develop some very protective tendencies and people problems. He is good with us, but horrible with other people when we're around. We had tried every kind of training we could think of and were even told we should just euthanize him after spending over $2000 on a 3-week "boot camp". Spring of last year, the manager at my vet's office gave rave reviews of Off Leash K9 Training and decided to give them try! Matt and Joe were fabulous. They worked so hard with Reddy and with me to help him to be a better dog. He's not 100%, but he is so much better and it so much more enjoyable to have him around other people than it was. I highly recommend Matt and Off Leash K9 Training to anyone looking to improve their dog and their relationship with their dog!! You couldn't ask for better!

Nicole at Bucks Dog Training has shown me that you really can teach huskies to be off the leash and not run. It has allowed me to have freedom. My 2 huskies enjoy their freedom off the leash running while I walk behind them. Nicole not only is a professional she has also become a friend. My pups look forward to going to see her and boarding with her. She is professional, attentitive and has a huge love for animals. If you want great results, Bucks Dog Training is the place to go. You will not be disappointed.

Literally amazing!! My kitten has been driving me crazy with his inappropriate urination and Curtis helped me understand the causes for this behavior. He offered valuable insight, provided suggestions on how to modify those behaviors, and how to better connect with my furbaby. I really appreciated his knowledge, professionalism, and empathy.

Nicole took the time to come to my house to meet with me and my dog prior to signing a contract so that everyone involved felt comfortable and agreed with her method of training. She if very calm with the dogs and trains in a gentle caring manner. She corrects bad behavior and gives praise for good behavior, teaching the dog how to please their humans. I can't wait until my dog comes back from spending two weeks with Nicole and can teach me how to communicate with her so she can show me what she learns. I highly recommend working with Nicole.
