What a great experience! Our dog has fear aggression issues. I thought we were going to have to either keep him tied up or worse, give him up. As it turns out it was really us that needed training more than Diesel. After only a few days, we are in a place where he just needs to get used to us doing things that now make more sense to him. He started responding almost immediately. I am now confident that with a little work I can keep my dog! Thanks so much!

I'd highly recommend this trainer to anyone and will! My family rescued a 4 month old mix-breed puppy from a shelter and we needed serious help. After thinking that we might have made a mistake and adopted a puppy that was too aggressive for our family, we have learned how to handle our puppy and look forward to enjoying her for many years to come. I cannot express the value of the training that was provided. Regardless of your level of experience with dog training, there was a level of skill provided that by far exceeded my expectations. Our puppy wasn’t just trained, we were also trained how to understand, think like, and know what was needed from us from our dog’s perspective. Our understanding is different now and our approach is so much better. Our dog is so much better behaved and it is absolutely amazing what has been accomplished in such a short time. The training methods utilized are simple to understand and best of all...THEY REALLY WORK!!! I bought eBooks, eVideos, watched countless videos, and read online materials...nothing comes close! I spoke to other dog trainers and was not about to waste money on a bunch of gimmicks that are really designed to take your money and leave you in need of more help down the road. This trainer is skilled and is worth every penny!!! If you want real results, then this is the trainer that you will not regret using!!! I'd give this trainer 10 stars if allowed!!! You will be amazed at the change in your dog and confidence you will feel as the dog’s owner (and new trainer). My puppy went from barely answering to her name to now doing tricks on command, was mostly confined to a small area in the living room to play to playing on the entire first floor, etc. My family is happier and so is my puppy!!! If you want real results, then I recommend this trainer above any other!!! +100% satisfied!!!

Mark has made my first experience with a new puppy possible. I am a teacher and until I was off for the summer Mark came to my home twice a day to take care of my two pound Yorkie named Benji. Not only did he meet with my family on his own time to gain our trust, he sent me pictures daily so I could feel at ease at work. Mark spoke with me on the phone many times giving me advice and letting me know how Benji was doing. He also set me up with an amazing puppy plan at the vet and I even ran into Mark and his dog there! Mark is very caring and knowledeable. I will certainly be using Mark's services again. Thanks Mark!

Tammi watched our dogs for 8 nights over Spring break. She was wonderful. She called me to ask when she had questions. Learned how to do my chihuahua's insulin injections. She even went to my vet to pick up our dogs prescription food because she ran out!! Very happy with Tammi and we are thrilled to have found her.

I have a 6 year old Springer Spaniel who has several behavioral problems. I was looking for someone who could help with his fear aggression towards other dogs among other things. C.J. Hazell was the perfect trainer for us because of the gentle techniques she uses and her special insights. We had several sessions in my home working on Riley's anxiety. I was really impressed that she provided me with a written report after her first visit on what she saw as Riley's issues and what things he might benefit from. She taught me to have him "think" more in our games which can have a calming effect. He now plays "find it" games where I hide his toys and he can locate them by name. This can keep him busy for quite a while and he seems to love it. I wanted to work a lot with Riley's aggression towards other dogs and C.J. brought her dogs over to the local park so Riley could learn that he gets what he wants when he stays calm. Since our sessions with C.J., Riley has gotten better and better with other dogs and I know what a reasonable expectation for his behavior is. I would recommend her for any type of training.

She Also Takes It Upon Herself To Clean For You Aswell If You Politely Ask Her Too! I Know, That My Dog Is Always Safe With Her. I Ask Her For Regular Updates On How The Dogs Doing And She Gladly Tells Me! Denise Walks Them, Feeds Them And Gives Them The Love They Are Lacking While You're Away. I Know That Denise Is The Best Petsitter In My Opinion! She Is Always My First Call When Were Ready To Go On Vacation And Probably Always Will Be!!

We have been to 5 different trainers. All taught or dog a thing or two but Sam went above and beyond. I really believe in his philosophy of teaching, it really does work best for dogs. We had our dog enrolled in a pet store training class to get her Canine Good Citizens Test, however she just wasn't focusing enough, and failed the practice tests. I kid you not, after 2 days (a week apart) with Sam, Shots passed her CGC with flying colors! He started out the day by simply walking her and tiring her out, then trained her. Getting some of her extra energy out made all the difference and she was able to concentrate on what he was teaching her. I would recommend Sam to anyone! He is extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Just seeing what he can teach dogs how to do in such a short time is amazing!
