"If you have any experience with Akitas, you know they are not the easiest dog to train. So my expectations to "train" my girl to be less animal aggressive and more responsive on leash were minimal on the first training day with Miss Jaime. However, from the getgo, my Akita loved Jaime but also learned right away she was no longer in charge of human/dog situations. There was an immediate respect for Jaime although a lot of testing "who was in charge" kinds of behaviors. Although even Jaime could not take all the natural Akita instincts out of her, my gal became more relaxed, very responsive to commands on leash and more of a joy to walk. The success of dog training depends as much on the "training" of the owner as of the dog. Miss Jaime works at success by working with the dog and owner. She explained clearly what to expect of my Akita according to my girl's nature and temperament, and especially all I needed to do to be part of the success of my Akita's behavioral changes. Miss Jaime is not a "bronco busting, beat them into submission" type of trainer. She understands the individuality of the dog (and the owner) and works wonders with those variables and constraints - to bring about the desired behaviors and outcomes. I highly recommend her and respect her training abilities because of my own experience with her training methods with my difficult Akita...."

"If it was not for Beth, I do not know where our family would be or if we would have been able to keep both of our dogs. Our two sweet girls were getting along fine for a few months after adopting one of them as a puppy. All of a sudden, they started getting into it. In a short time, they got into it enough to where we needed immediate help from a trainer. I reached out to several and Music City Training contacted me very quickly. They explained the in home training process and how Beth would first visit to discuss the plan with us. Within a week, she came over to diagnose our issues and draw up a plan. Within another week, we started a series of trainings whereby Beth would come to hour house and train with us and our dogs; everything from basic obedience to getting to the root of the problem. This was all necessary because we learned if our dogs did not listen to us with basic commands, they would not respect or listen to us and keep doing what they wanted, like getting into fights. It was amazing how quickly our girls picked up the commands and how well training progressed. I never knew that my dogs could behave as well as they had started to after a couple of sessions. Of course on our own time, we had to practice with them: sit, stay, come, leave it, leash walking, heeling, and my favorite, the "place" command. This one shocked me most of all. After a couple of months, we were able to re-introduce our dogs to each other to have them interact and the changes were truly impeccable (we previously let them see each other by kept them separated by a doggy gate). In October when this first happened, I was in tears thinking we would have to give one of the dogs up. Around Christmas, we put the dogs together and they have been great ever since (Almost March now). It is amazing that now before going out, they sit by the door until I exit and release them, or when they are about to eat, I put the food in front of them and they look at me for permission before diving into the bowl. I know that my husband and I would have never gotten to this point without Beth and Music City Dog Training. If I had known then what I know now, I would have hired Beth the moment we got each of our two dogs, just for the normal training procedures and commands. It really is never too early to start training and Beth taught us that even very unfavorable behaviors like aggression can be treated (which we were both skeptical about until we saw the end result). As an FYI--both of our dogs had done local pet store basic training, but it really does not even compare to what Beth can offer and the results speak for themselves. I urge anyone who had a dog with any issues or recently adopted a dog without any known behavioral issues (yet) to hire Beth as a trainer. You will not regret it. Another FYI--The trainer trains YOU and the dogs. When she leaves, you have to be consistent and serious about teaching your dog what Beth taught you and the dogs during your lessons. If you are not willing to be trained, your dog won't be either."
