My son & I recently experienced some behaviors from our puppy that was concerning. After my first contact with Susie...I knew she was the trainer we needed. She stays in constant contact with you. No matter where she is. Being a new puppy owner we did not know the best way to train or what we were doing. By far the best training experience my son & I have received in our home. She was patient, honest informative & her positive energy allowed us to feel very comfortable with her. Susie has a very special gift with animals & our Pomsky Sapphire took right to her as well as we did. We all benefited from her showing us techniques in a positive way. Educating us on the food & addressed all our questions in ways we understood. She traveled such a distance for us.... because she truly loves what she does & it shows. I teased her she needs to clone herself ... if only more trainers were like her. I would highly recommend her. My son Connor(12) rated her above 10. I think that says it all. Kelly McGee
I hired John Miller to come to my home to train my 8 month old golden retriever on a few obedience commands and to resolve a couple of issues such as jumping and pulling on the leash when we would go for a walk. I definitely got the results that I was looking for. John's knowledge combined with his patient and friendly personality would make a great choice for anyone looking to hire a dog trainer.
We are very thankful for Noelle/Thank Dog! She has been fantastic in helping train us (including my 13 year old daughter) as we attempt to train our new puppy ;-). Noelle has a peaceful, accommodating and patient presence and has surpassed my expectations in every single way. Both my 8 yr old and 4 month old dogs respond incredibly well to Noelle and her training "style/method". Noelle has done a wonderful job of listening to our concerns and desires in regards to training our puppy and has been extremely accommodating in creating a personalized plan that meets our family's specific goals and needs. Both of our dogs have also borded with Noelle which is honestly icing on an already very sweet cake...we have been able to travel knowing they are in Noelle's excellent, compassionate, expert care. It's hard to put a price tag on peace of mind and we are beyond grateful that we have not only found the very best dog trainer for us and our immediate needs in navigating the crazy challenging puppy phase but also someone that I am confident will be the "go to" resource in any/all future training needs along with providing the perfect home away from home for my dogs whenever travel.

Travis did a wonderful job with our 13 month old German Pinscher Anabel. She now has house manners and walks without tugging when we go out for walks. During her training, he updated us with photos and information on how her training was progressing. When Travis return Anabel, he gave us a lesson on how to continue reinforcing all that he had taught her and a video of her training for reference. We highly recommend Travis for anyone who is looking for knowledgeable dog trainer.
Jason has been so helpful and very professional with my very energetic, stubborn German Shepherd mix. I enrolled Jace in the board and train program, and I've been amazed at not only the results, but Jason's willingness to give tips for how to continue Jace's training even after the program. I would highly recommend Top Shot K9!!
We have two very high strung, head strong Australian Shepherds. Dan has been amazing in allowing them to warm up to a stranger yet expecting then to be controlled in their behavior. He uses positive training methods. He sends an update after each visit which helps me be comfortable about how the dog walking went that day. I highly recommend Dan!

I am a dog trainer based in Fairview, TN. My passion for all animals has driven me to become a dog trainer. I am dedicated to turning any dog into our best friend.
Amazing is the only thing I can say about Bobbie and the result of her training. After her two week board and train, my 12 month old German Shepard is a new dog. Before her training he would rip my arm off every time he was on a leash and he would see a person or another dog. Yesterday I took him for a walk around the neighborhood without a leash. We passed two poodles, a boxer, a jogger, and a cat that ran right in front of us. He never left my side, not even once. He sat at the corner on command and would stay even when I walked off. Then he would come to me on command. The freedom of an off leash dog is amazing. I would recommend Bobbie, and her training, to anyone who truly wants to treat their dog like they are part of their family!
I have attended both Level 1 Basic Obedience and Level 2 Advanced Obedience classes with my pup Remy. Both classes push the dog and trainer to excel under Charlotte's guidance. She gives direct feedback catered to your specific situation and dog, with small realistic goals to set you up for success. I have enjoyed her classes immensely, and look forward to attending more in the future!
Nikki's understanding of animal behavior is unimaginable, and her ability to teach people how to have a more enjoyable relationship with their dog is far beyond comprehension. My wife and I had Nikki come out to our home and teach us how to work with our German Shepherd puppy, Veda. Nikki's lessons are straight to the point, and the results are evident immediately. She is a huge proponent of not "over commanding" your dog. To hear it from Nikki, she'd tell you that you shouldn't have to constantly tell your dog what to do (or what NOT to do)...your dog should know what is expected and just do it without a command. To alot of people that sounds daunting, if not laughable, as a training method. You can laugh or shrug off that line of thinking if you want, but we're here to tell you that it works! Dog dragging you down the street on your "walk"? Nikki will fix it! Dog jumping at the door to greet visitors? Nikki will fix it! Ever feel like you're not the one in charge? Nikki will fix it! Quit reading the Leerburg site wondering about prong collars. Quit wasting your hard earned money at Petsmart and Petco on their clicker classes where you make the funny noises to distract the dog from what it's focusing on. Call Nikki. Tell her what's going on with your pet. Setup an appointment, and start enjoying your relationship with your pet (and other humans in the house) again. Her abilities with animals and their owners will change the dynamic in your house in a very short period of time. It does cost a little bit more than those other training classes...but the results are far better in our opinion.
Michael was the best!!! I would HIGHLY recommend him to pet sit for any dog. I have two German Shepherds and my female is very shy and barks/growls at everyone. Michael came over to meet the dogs before I went out of town. Within minutes he made friends with both dogs and even had my female licking his arm on the couch. I was happily surprised as I had never had anyone keep them before. He sent me updates and pictures everyday, which made being away from them easier. I completely trust him with my pups and will definitely be using him in the future!
I'm so thankful that I found Pet Prep Academy! I have a new malti-poo puppy and he's such a naughty boy. Connie Harris had Chewbacca literally eating out of her hands. Chewbacca loved her and listened to her instructions like a champ. I honestly didn't think that he was trainable and then Connie worked her magic. This is the best thing that you can do for your pet and you as their human. I highly recommend this company. Debbie Harrell~Pleasant View, TN
There's simply is no better dog trainer than James. Don't waste your time looking elsewhere.
She did a splended job of caring for three dogs of mine. The dogs she cared for was a German Shepard, a Golden Retriever, and a Cocker spaniel. She also tended to birds. For example, she cared for a parakeet and parots, etc. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Deborah did a great job walking my dog! Bruno, my German Shorthair, has tons of energy and couldn't make it through the day without the regular visits Deborah provided. Really helped me out during business trips and late work nights when I couldn't be there to take him out myself. Reliable, friendly and a great friend to Bruno; Deborah is fantastic.
