Dana was very responsible and professional with our German Shepherd. Sarge is very well behaved puppy now that Dana has trained him. Dana was excellent in keeping us informed of the training of our pup ie pictures, videos and Facebook postings.

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.

A Fantastic experience beyond our imagination. Training our 8 Month old Puppy, Freckies who weighs over 40 pounds. We were apprehensive about sending him to a trainer but knew that we needed an expert. We interviewed 3 dog trainers before we called Stacee and we are very lucky that we waited to talk with her. She was very calm, soft spoken and treated Freckies with love and respect. Stacee appears to be a "dog whisperer." I am definitely very satisfied and highly recommend Stacee and Southern Dogworks. Her attention to our needs and Freckies was always foremost in all communication.

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!

Nathan did an awesome job training our 7 month German shepherd Kaizer! My husband and I left him with Nathan for just under 2 weeks to teach Kaizer the basics. We had both tried teaching him a few things but we weren't very successful so we had a puppy that pretty much ran the house. We now have a dog who will sit, lay down, heel, and come when called. He will also stay in the place we tell him to lay down until we say he can get up! I highly recommend Allegiance K9!!

Fairy Tail Spa is amazing! Our fur baby is older and had never been to a groomer, we moved him inside two years ago to give him a better quality of life and started looking for a grooming service. Our German Shepherd LOVES going for his appointments! The atmosphere is very relaxing and calm not only for your pet but for clients as well. I love the prompt text message service/updates you are provided throughout your appointment, there is never a service that is done or preformed on your pet without your approval. I highly recommend Fairy Tail Spa if you are in the Robertson County area looking for a family pet grooming service!!!!

    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!
