Wind Dancer Referrals was exemplary in providing dog training. Information and demonstrations were very comprehensive, easy to understand and experientially based. It was clear that Susie had outstanding credentials, experience and knowledge. She easily customized a program to meet our needs and assess our dog. We could not have asked for a better trainer.

Jason, his team, and family did an excellent job with our dog! They are obviously committed to great dog care and training, with a real love of the dogs in their care. They communicate and inform very well also - we never wondered or worried! Their training programs are top notch and we would recommend them to anyone who needs help in training their dog.

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!

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.

We took both our dogs to training. They both are doing much better and are much easier to manage. It has really made our house calmer and the dogs continue to progress and behave much better. We would highly recommend the two week program.

From the first home visit "meet and greet" to establish a baseline, through the personalized (hour plus every time) training sessions, and continuous follow up advice, we received high-quality, professional, and - most important - effective means to get ourselves and our dog better aligned. Make no mistake: "Thank Dog! Training" is not a quick-fix, single session solution. It absolutely requires considerable commitment and consistency of everyone in the immediate home of the dog. And that is not easy. But we and our dog are far healthier frames of mind and expectations now.

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!!

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!

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!

We would be more than happy to help train and work with bulldogs that can be stubborn at times, when at a young age. Having worked with this majestic and awesome breed for twelve years, we can help assist frustrated owners. Whether it be potty training, or walking on a harness, we can make a difference in your new addition of a bulldog, making true family harmony happen.
