Jim arrived promptly and gave us needed assistance. jim is an experienced and obviously effective trainer. He met our rxpectatins and we know we have someone to go to for our dog's training needs. Very happy
Julie has been diligent with training our dog, Tanner. As Tanner developed from a puppy, his personality changed (owner mistakes). Julie uses positive reinforcement when working on problem areas with Tanner. Julie has always been a pleasure to work with over the last 3 years. Tanner is always smiling when it is time to work with Julie.
Dina came out to our home and worked directly with us and our dog. She gave us so many pointers that have made such a difference in training our new german shepherd. I'm amazed at how quickly our dog has responded using very simple tools and instructions she left with us. Her recommendations on how to respond and react to our dog's actions have made all the diffference. I would highly recommend Dina's expertise to anyone needing help with training their dog.
We got a strong willed, 7 week old Golden Puppy and were looking for someone to help us train her. We were referred to Lonnie Pearson. She is a loving, carring and well trained trainer.Daisy just loves her! We are pleased with the hand/voice signals that she used and the many times she helped us over the training period. We now have a well trained and much loved dog. Lonnie is very good at training all temperments and breeds of dogs. Well worth it! Donna and Bob Welker Simpsonville, SC.
I have had the pleasure to take instruction with Jennifer in 3 different dog training classes. My dog Morgen, a black lab, and I started with Jennifer in puppy class, moved on to intermediate and then completed advanced training. Morgen is only 10 months old and we are always getting complimented on his great behavior in public at such a young age. Jennifer kept the classes stimulating and fun for both the human and dog. She is very skilled and has abundant knowledge in dog training and handling. Anyone attending Jennifer's training classes will not be disappointed. She is a true professional.
Stephanie helped us with our dogs after we brought our daughter home from the hospital. We had some introduction issues that were quite frightening for us as new parents. Not only did Stephanie empathize with our concerns, she was extremely patient with our never ending questions during the training process. Stephanie's way of explaining dog training is extremely easy to understand and helped us achieve very fast results. We would recommend Stephanie to anyone with a dog, whether they are new to the family or have been a longtime member.
Judy helped me paint my entire apartment when I moved one year ago. Her hand is outstandingly steady; she painted all the trimmings and moldings perfectly without the assistance of painter's tape! Judy is attentive to detail and will do a beautiful job with any color or surface. I recommend her painting services 100%; I can't say enough good things about her work. Judy is also a fierce animal lover, and has owned up to five dogs and three cats at one time. She cares about the health and happiness of any animal she interacts with, and prioritizes proper training for a stress-free lifestyle. I trusted her to care for my puppy 24/7 when I was traveling for a week, and not only did she ensure his safety but she even taught him to stop being afraid of the front staircase and walk more confidently on a leash! I would use Judy's services for painting and puppy care again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.
Jason did a wonderful job training our puppy and continues to do a great job with boarding him. Highly recommend !!!
She is immediately responsive! Will guide you honestly and lead you in the direction that best suits you and your dog!
Georgia's Story: When I rescued Georgia she was six months old and on the "urgent adoption" list. Needless to say, I couldn't let that happen after seeing the video of her rescue on FB. I had not been looking for another dog but always knew I wanted another rescue. WOW!!! What a handful! She knew zero commands, had to be walked on a leash with a collar and with a leash on a harness. She was strong and knew she could drag me anywhere. I realized I had to do something to gain control. After being referred to James with Upstate Dog Academy, Georgia completed his course with flying colors! She was doing so well at the academy we decided to train an additional two weeks and now she's doing better than ever. I love the fact that Georgia is so well behaved that she has become my sidekick and actually goes to work with me. I don't worry about her getting into trouble or misbehaving because James has taken time training with us at home and work. He's great at meeting the client's needs...whether it's picking up or dropping off your dog or offering boarding service if you need to go out of town. He's very service oriented. I am so surprised what her training has done for me....I've learned so much because James has a great way of teaching you in a way you can remember. It felt good working wIth Georgia and watching her succeed with the training. Several months ago I would have never thought we'd be this far along. James is great about following up to see how we're doing and answering any and all questions. Bottom line...I know I made the right decision taking Georgia to Upstate Dog Academy! * He truly cares about my dog. * Georgia absolutely loves him. * His training techniques are used with a great positive energy. * He guarantees 100% satisfaction with his training. * He enabled me a relationship with Georgia I truly enjoy. * Georgia is thriving and learning more each day. I can't possibly forget to mention Hannah who's assisted in Georgia's training. Thank you James, Hannah & Crew!!
Lisa is so good at what she does that you will want to keep her all to your dog and yourself, but that would be ridiculously unfair to all the other dogs and pup-parents out there who can benefit from her help! We sought Lisa’s help in training our 7-month-old Plott Hound-mix rescue pup, Remi. Initially Lisa worked with us at our home in a very practical way, on real-life behavior issues and where Remi felt comfortable. We have, since then, also done group agility sessions with Lisa at her fantastic facility. Remi loves agility, and we have been amazed at how much we've accomplished - from an obedience standpoint - when we thought we were just doing agility. My husband was, at the very first, a skeptic. But it did not take long for him to realize what a tremendous difference Lisa would make - not just in fixing a few annoying behaviors Remi had picked up - but in improving our relationship and communication with Remi so dramatically and to such an extent that we are all – Remi and us – so much happier and content with each other. I have never met anyone who is so knowledgeable about dogs and their relationship with people and who is, at the same time, so incredibly patient, kind, helpful, positive, funny, accommodating, understanding, and humble. Lisa knows what she’s doing, but she also listens to you. She is hugely flexible and never insistent that there is only one way to accomplish something with your dog. She is not rigid in her approach because she understands that it isn’t any good if it doesn’t work for you. Lisa has helped us to accomplish everything we have wanted to accomplish by helping us to find ways that will work for us and for Remi. Lisa genuinely wants to help you have a better relationship and a happier life with your dog, and she has a seemingly bottomless tool kit of ways to accomplish that. Most of the suggestions Lisa has given us for how we might change or modify a behavior of Remi’s that we don’t like work remarkably well. But if we try something and it doesn’t work for us, she will - without hesitation - offer another suggestion. And it seems like she could easily keep coming up with new suggestions until we find one that works for us. Lisa works with you at the level you’re at and the pace you’re comfortable with, and she does it without any judgement or criticism. She never questions how much we have (or have not) worked on something she has taught us. She is always positive and encouraging, and has the ability to see small gains - which she regularly points out so that we can see that we are making progress. Lisa makes learning fun for both you and your dog. She brings something new to every session so that it’s always different and interesting. Remi is always excited to see Lisa because she knows we’ll be doing something fun and engaging. Lastly, working with Lisa is an incredibly good value. She did not require us to commit to a long and expensive training program. We like working with Lisa and we are seeing all of the results we were hoping for (and more), so we keep working with her. It’s that simple.
I believe my work will stand out from others do to the fact that i take the time to get to know my clients, and take the time with each and every situation.
I have been working with Laura for the past few months with my new GSD puppy. She is very patient, honest and professional. Her knowledge is top notch. She takes the time to explain all aspects of the training process. I drive 4 hours for each training session. I would highly recommend Carolina Canine Services for all your training needs.
I have been training my whippet, Ash for the last year and a half at the Puppy Nanny's Place. We have trained in basic obedience, and rally, and we have been competing for about a year. He has his Rally Novice title and 2 legs on his Advanced which we hope to finish in June. Now, I know many would think that is a long time but Whippets aren't known for doing a lot of obedience, they are sight hounds who run, not sit stay! So, what this means is that Sue has tought me the skills, and trained me to understand how he works, and make us both successful using positive training and many unique tools such a platform work to teach hind end awareness, games to play that make your dog think things through for himself, and commands that help him to understand what you want from him. She has a wonderful attitude, always a positive, never a negative, to training. She is reasonable fee wise, and the facility is always immaculate. I couldn't recommend a better trainer in the Greenville SC area,
I am an educator (dog person) and caretaker. I work with all breads. There are no bad bogs, and I teach owners to be dog savvy.
I am young and have a lot of energy. I won't give up easily. If one tactic doesn't work I will try another until I give you the satisfaction you want and need from your animal.
