Jason is awesome! He's is only reasonably priced dog trainer I could find and I couldn't be happier with the changes I'm already seeing with my Kingsford :)

Patti was an excellent fit for our needs. We went out of town for several days, and we left our dog at home for the first time. Patti was very responsive, and she walked/fed/played with our dog twice a day. One day, he hadn't pooped in the morning, and she came back an extra time to make sure he didn't need to go. I would absolutely use her again if needed!

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.

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.

We really enjoyed working with Off Leash K9!! They are very knowledgeable about dog training. They came to our house and worked with our puppy, Smokey. They were able to help correct some of his bad behaviors and taught him new commands. Smokey now stays in his "place" while our two little kids eat in their high chairs. He walks so well on a leash now and doesn't pull. Our 2 year old even walks him and isn't pulled down! Definitely recommend Off Leash K9! Thank you, thank you!!

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.

Dan and I met while volunteering together at Midde TN Boxer Rescue. His passion for dogs is evident from the moment you meet him. He genuinely enjoys walking, playing and giving love to the dogs he helps and owns! He often fosters dogs from MTBR and helps them to learn house manners. He assesses the dogs interaction with children, cats and other dogs in the home. It takes a great deal of patience, understanding, & compassion . Your pet will definitely enjoy any time it has with Dan!

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!

Anna was wonderful in every aspect. She was great with all three of my pets - parrot, cat and dog. She was accomodating and visited an extra time just because she was in the area! I feel confident that I am able to leave them in her care whenever I need to go out of town.

I work at a job that has crazy hours and thanks to Tiffany Exum I am able to get things done and feel like I have been home the whole time. She pretty much takes care of my household. Cleans laundry mail kids the whole thing. If I have a load of laundry ready to go in, it's a great feeling when it's already folded when you get home. One time I was gone overnight and the dog got loose and was hit by a car. My kids called Tiffany Exum to try to help him and she did, came over with her doggy first aid kit and he his fine to this day thanks to Tiffany Exum. Not only is the dog ok but we are all better off as we are able to spend more family quality time. She foresees things and is quick to jump at the task at hand

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.

About

My passion as a dog trainer is teaching people to properly train their dogs to be a welcome part of the family. Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters. Proper training can save these types of dogs. Everyone likes a well-trained dog. It's the only way to have a dog and truly enjoy them. I became a dog enthusiast because I was given an adult dog that had many behavioral problems. I worked with several trainers to make her a wonderful companion that I could truly enjoy. My show experience includes obedience and agility. My golden retriever Kula has received the following titles from AKC and United Kennel Club (UKC): Companion Dog (CD), Rally Excellent (RE), United Companion Dog(UCD) and Canine Good Citizen (CGC).
