Cathy was Awesome!!! I was very pleased. She was so good with my elderly dog. He loved being pampered and even ran around like a puppy after his wonderful bath. Cathy did a great grooming job, nails, ears and even brush my Baby Bear's teeth... Good Price Too

Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

We acquired a rescue lab and had no idea what this boy knew... We hired Balanced Pooches dog training and could not be more impressed with the service John provided. Our boy Tucker is a totally different dog today then he was the day we got him.... We have all learned so much, and We are all works in progress. John was truly interested in working with all of us so we were all on the same page as far as training and building a great relationship to make a balanced home. I don't think words could explain how much this man cares to make every relationship between you and your pet a wonderful one. Hiring John was the best decision we made, and we highly recommend him.

My first experience with a private trainer for my pooch and I couldn't have asked for a better person. Sandy is professional yet down to earth, my dog, kokobutt, who is afraid of the world, loves her! "Aunty Sandy" is amazing at training and my dog has come a long way. I will continue to use her services and recommend her to anyone seeking assistance to train their dogs.

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.

It's hard to know who to choose when hiring any professional. I have an 8 month old German Shepherd, and after doing much research trainers, I decided to go with ACT K9. I was so impressed from the very beginning! During the evaluation, I met John and Lindsey and 2 of John's dogs. I have never met more trained dogs in my life. John's interaction with them was amazing. A week later we started training my dog, Sasha. After one lesson, she was already learning to heel. We have only had 2 lessons so far, but Sasha is already listening so much better. John and Lindsey really know what they're doing. The training is as much for me as it is for my dog. I'm so happy I chose them!!!

When first calling, the process was made really simple and all questions I had were answered and put me at ease. The fees/registration for classes is very competitive as I looked around at different places. Having gone there for Puppy classes, I was a bit skeptical at first. Not anymore - Not only do I love the facilty but our trainer Jenn is amazing. I have also signed Drago up for Obedience thru Champion with Jenn and cannot wait to start. Would definitely recommend ALL that have animals to check Champion Kennels out!!!!!

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.

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!

She taught me everything I need to know about dog training. An outstanding instructor who can do anything from the simple basics to hard core problems with fido. Straightforward and a highly knowledgeable individual who will and can help with anything dog related. She puts the dog and their issues first and wants to help as much as she can sacrificing time and anything she can to try to help.

Working with Chelsea has been life-changing for my autistic son who is 7 and my family. Since meeting Chelsea she helped take us through the entire process of training our son's service dog to assist him out in the public as well as in our home. She helped us pick out a puppy that she believed had the correct temperament and worked closely with us to ensure that her training stayed on track. She is an extremely intuitive person and was able to identify areas that would be so helpful for my son all the while helping train us to handle our new puppy. Fast forward many months of vigorous training and we have a wonder tool for our son. He now goes into public areas that I never could get him to go before and she can stop a meltdown before it starts. As I mentioned at the beginning of this review this has been life changing for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Chelsea to assist in any of your training needs. We are grateful to her for helping our son have a better future.

My wife and I attended classes at Patience Inspired Dog Training and found it to be excellent in all matters. We have attended many classes at other facilities over the years with our dogs and found this to be the best. We especially liked the patience that Michelle has during her classes and while working with our dog and us. Overall it was a great experience!

We love dogs! We just got a puppy in December. We are training her to sit, give paws, lay down, stay, come and especially how to walk with a leash. I am looking for clients who need to have their dog(s) walked, fed and watered at anytime of the day. Weekdays are preferable but we can work together to make sure all your needs are met! ( weekends or vacations can be accomodated)
