Gwendolyn has been the absolute best! She is always keeping us up-to-date for how our dog is doing, and she has even taught her some new obedience tricks. I am so thankful to have her as a dogwalker!

Dana was a fantastic trainer and helped our dogs out tremendously with obedience, potty training, and other useful techniques. Was easy to work with and great with keeping us updated on how our dogs were doing. Very impressed with how professional he was and how great of a person he is. I would definitely recommend Dana to anyone looking for a trainer.

I've been using Danielle's dog walking service since I moved here last July. Knowing Danielle (or her Mom) are visiting with my dog, Kloe, while I'm at work gives me great peace of mind. When I get into a pinch and can't get home from work right away, Danielle is just a "text" message away, and she's always been able to go back to the house to bring Kloe out for another break. Danielle is a natural animal lover - it's clearly her passion, which makes her the kind of person that I want watching my little Kloe. I would highly recommend Danielle and Music City Pet Sitting.

It was a joy watching James work and connect with a dog he had just met. He exercised total patience with Ellie and with us as the clueless owners in training. Within the hour our dog religiously knew multiple basic commands and all of the advice and techniques James taught us are always being implemented. We've have several very good lab mixes through the years, but she is by far the loveliest and most intelligent. The same goes for the trainer. On-time, professional, just a joy to watch the transition from derpy dog to dog with a purpose after one session. Highly recommend.

Steve has been great with us and our dog. He is very patient and he really works on exactly what we need. He takes extra time to be with our dog and is very good at teaching us what we need to do. We have seen a great improvement with our dog's behavior since starting work with Steve.

Travis turned my dog into a manageable pet that will now come when called and heel while walking. We couldn't be happier.

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.

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.

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!

My dog is an Allegiance k9 dog - exceptional behavior and temperament and well trained. I have also purchased dog food through Nate Tinnin as well as boarded my dog with him. Excellent service - very accomodating and helpful! His facility is very well kept and pricing is reasonable. I highly recommend Allegiance K9!

Excellent. Travis is a warm and caring trainer of dogs. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to send their dog to school. Travis kept our Mandy for one week and she has been well behaved for a five month old.

I have seen first hand the transformation that Kelly has made in the behavior of multiple dogs. I have wanted to adopt more than one dog that she fostered and trained, and my sister actually did! When we are ready to get a dog, we will absolutely use Pack Leader Prep School!

Brad did a great job training my dog. He taught Dixie all her basic obedience and then taught me how to follow up and through to reinforce what she learned from Brad. I highly recommend brad to train your dog.

My classes range from puppy training to basic, intermediate and advanced canine good citizen excellence. The price varies depending on which type of training you desire. I am proud to say that at this point I train over 30 dogs a week professionally using only positive reinforcements. If your dog has a behavioral problem, I may be your answer in helping to resolve it.
