I had a great experience working with Matt! not only is he personable and easy to work with, but he is an excellent dog trainer. We were able to transform a gigantic stray shepard puppy from a total maniac into a calm, obedient buddy in 2 sessions. This is a very practical and effective method of training. If you're on the fence just go for it. You AND you dog will be much happier.

Jessica kept our high energy dog, Sookie, for 8 days over Christmas. We were so extremely pleased with the service that she provided. She sent daily updates and even a picture, which was such a comfort to us. Jessica kept a detailed log of food and activities which was also comforting. Even ridiculous things that we dog owners think are important (like special treats and activities on Christmas) were important to Jessica as well. We will leave Sookie with Jessica again and again (as often as she'll say yes!).

Buck and Sue are very interactive, pleasant and kind. They were concerned with out needs and fit the lessons to fit our needs. We had a lot of fun. And are better dog owners and dog for having trained with Buck. I highly recommend this training.

When I travel, which is a lot, I always feel totally comfortable when Lisa is with my dog. The best critic is my dog and whenever Lisa walked in the door, she was so excited. I have always trusted that Lisa would know the right thing to do no matter what the situation. She is reliable and loving. What more could an animal or owner want?

Carrie is GREAT! She is clearly a pet lover (as is her partner). She makes an effort to be flexible to one's schedule. She does not just sit and watch the dog play outside, but is actively involved. If you need her to find palace off-leash, she will find it. She will come to your home and she will do overnights. Her home is rather small to have a large pet there but it is full of love and comfort, which is most important. She will check in w/ you everyday, give you updates; never complains (even if your dog helps her to sprain her ankle!) She is trustworthy and I highly recommend her!

When our dog reached 7 years of age, we used Tracy to stop by, to walk and let our dog out for bathroom breaks, while we were working. Tracy is very caring, trustworthy and reliable. Tracy would stop by when we were home, and our dog would be excited to see her! I wouldn't hesitate to utilize Tracy's services again.

I hired Erin to watch my 2 dogs and cat a few months prior to my March vacation. Unfortunately, during that time my senior dog got sick. Erin and I communicated the whole time as I got diagnosis. Erin was prepared and experienced with caring for a diabetic dog. This made me feel comfortable hiring her. Sadly my senior dog got very sick and I had to euthanize her. During that time, prior to my vacation I cannot begin to explain how understanding and gracious Erin was. I went on vacation and Erin made it so easy. She put me at ease with updates daily and was very communicative. I will hire her again because I feel comfortable that I have hired a trustworthy pet loving person.

Stephinie has been walking my dog, Arthur, every weekday for the past year and also boards him at her home when I'm out of town. I have a very hyper dog and Stephinie goes above and beyond to make sure he gets plenty of exercise. She runs/ hikes/ and plays fetch with him- he always comes back exhausted. She's also a dog trainer so she works on commands with him as well. Stephanie always comes on time and is super reliable.

I’ve learned more at a couple of classes at Splash n Dash than in all the books I have read and 40 years of dog ownership. Agility training and Flyball have changed my dog Dougal from a frustrated and slightly destructive dog into a very happy and well behaved companion and established a special bond between us.

This trainer has a very confident manner and my dog reacted well to him. I am learning a lot about dog behavior and how to read my dog's body language. He has given me great information and tips covering many different areas of my dog's reactions. I would recommend him highly to anyone serious about doing the work to strengthen their bond with their furry friend. Enjoyable too

    Great job with my dog! He was listening better in just one lesson. Bree is very gifted with animals and her knowledge is unbeatable. Thanks Bree! Myself and Freddie will see you soon!

    Andrea is absolutely fabulous! We learned more in an hour and a half with Andrea than 6 weeks of a stock training class at a retail pet store. The one on one attention and completely customized approach was key for our 3 month old German Shepherd puppy. I watched him learn a series of commands in a matter of minutes. I feel armed with the knowledge I need to be able to successfully and effectively train my puppy. Looking forward to our next lesson!
