Courtney is a very positive trainer that always goes out of her way to help me and my Service Dog in training. I learn lots of new things from her. If it weren't for her, I don't know what I would do since it is much harder than it seems to raise and train your own Service Dog. With Courtney at K9 Positive Training, we think finishing Kodak's training as a Service Dog is possible.

I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.

Peter was attentive and very kind. For our first training session, he taught basic techniques that seem to be aligned with the methods he uses. The second appointment he gave more specific direction on the original issue I sought training to address. Overall, I would invite him back for evaluations, his prices are great for the area, and he comes to you. I was looking for a trainer to help me with a specific negative behavior my dog began in the past year. If you are hoping for specific behavior corrections, this may not be the best route to take. I would recommend Peter for initial/new dog training and basic obedience training.

I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

My Pyranese had an issue with leash pulling so bad it caused a shoulder injury. Steve had her walking normal within the first 15 minutes of our session. My dog didnt know the word NO now she does. I was amazed with his results. He is punctual and quick responding if you have issues during your homework training. He was so patient to give me verbal instruction through the phone while I was struggling with an issue. He does high quality work and worth every penny. Would absolutely rehire him if I got more dogs. Amy St. Jean

Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!

Jess has done an exceptional job helping us train our dog, Bruin. He is a 2yo German Shepherd that has anxiety and a ton of energy. We just finished our 6 week, private training lessons and are extremely thrilled at all of his progress and could not have done it without all of her help. We plan to sign up for more training with Jess to take it to the next level. I highly recommend Jess if you are looking for a trainer. She is extremely patient and so knowledgeable about dogs and very helpful.

We rescued a shepherd/malamute mix puppy from a shelter out-of-state and hired Sandy to help us with our new addition to the family. Sandy’s experience, dedication, patience and love for dogs is remarkable! From the first few sessions, I was amazed how this little puppy was on his way to become a good listener and follow commands. She is always prepared with each weekly lesson and makes it fun instead of making it a chore. She provides handouts each time she visits so that the family can continue with the lessons. Our puppy is now five months old and loves Sandy when she comes over for training. When we visit our favorite pet store, we are always given compliments on how well our puppy behaves and we credit this to Sandy for training Diesel and the family! I would definitely recommend Sandy to anyone who would like assistance training their dog. 5/5. Heidi P

We were thrilled with our experience with Reckless Adventures. Joan is very dependable, thorough and most of all - a dog lover. I was able to relax on my vacation because I trusted that she was dependable. When we got back our dog was very happy (and tired from lots of walking!) Highly recommend.

Heidi is an excellent trainer. She not only clearly demonstrates what to do but explains why you are doing it that way. In just a couple of sessions my dogs are doing things I thought were impossible and my dogs have had 8 years of bad habits to correct.

Auntie Maggs does a lot of fun activities and training with all the dogs. She is very sweet, caring & will help anybody who needs it. My dog loves her and always comes home so happy from being with Maggie, thank you so much for everything you have taught her & will teach her in the future! Keep it up, you're the best!

No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.

I’ve worked with Lynne Panno for many years with my dogs. She is very knowledgeable, patient and knows dogs and training methods extremely well. Training is really for us owners and Lynne is patient but quick to correct our errors - so that we are consistent in our training with our dogs and they always know what we want them to do.

Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.
