I had a doberman, Rose, that was a challenge to walk. She did not go out for walks. I found Come and Train It K9 and now Rose and I go for walks! John and Courtney really understood Rose and gave us the tools we needed to be successful. The team is extremely professional and genuinely wanted to make sure we were successful. I learned about my own shortcomings when it came to my with and toward Rose. I very much recommend Come and Train It K9 to anyone who has a dog with challenges. Rose can go out for walks now.....life is much better for her! Thank you John and team!

WE LOVE CASSIDY!!! My dog,Charlie, and I have used her for everything. We started with training but she has done much more than that! She does our bathing and nails, she takes him for trips to the dog park or on walks when I simply do not have the time and she sends me photos of him all the time. She takes the BEST pictures too! Thanks to her, I can take Charlie anywhere that allows dogs and I completely trust his obedience!

Amazing! Very beneficial for my 5YO boxer, he went into the 3 week training (being shy and a bit rebellious) and came out a very well behaved dog. I'm very grateful I found them and very thankful to Oscar for the training he's provided not only to my baby but also to me. Highly recommend Barks 5th Avenue. Great experience from the first time I requested info to the time the hand over happened. Grooming and daycare was also very good. Chowder will definitely be visiting daycare there and next is puppy training for my boxer. Old dogs can learn new tricks!

Took my Cavalier King Charles spaniel at 5 months old to Vivian for puppy training and continued with 3 additional 6 week classes. Vivian was great in training me on how to work with my dog and also in getting us prepared for being certified as a therapy pet. Very pleased with the results.

Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!

Misty & Wayne did their first session with my dog Bailey on last Saturday and the results have been good. I am very surpised and pleased at the amount of change in my puppy already after just one lesson. She is more controlled and the tips that they left me with really work. We have been working daily since they left and the progress is very clear. We had went to a treat-based puppy training class at a local kennel that taught her commands that she only responded to with treats and totally ignored if treats weren't invoked. After one session, she is responding without treats. I'm impressed! Can't wait to get a few additional classes under my belt.

Amy worked with very difficult dogs. The chocolate lab had been abused and was very shy. Amy brought her out of her darkness. She began to interact with another dog and has made continual improvement. The other dog is a pit bull who had bad habits. Amy instantly knew what to do. Trained us on how to train the dog. The dog is different as night is from day!

I would definitely recommend Pilla's Pet Services, very reasonable, friendly and super knowledgeable! I promise, you won't be disappointed. I have 2 young boys and 2 fur babies at home , 1 of which is a Great Dane. We brought Ema home at 3 months she was the cutest puppy Ever weighing 25lbs. We always thought it was cute how she would run and jump on us or how she would jump so high to look out the window. Well as the months passed Ema grew so fast weighing 100lbs before her 1st birthday. She was out of control, and hard to tame, she would knock us down, she's broken windows, destroyed mini blinds and would eat anything that we left unattended. It got to the point where we were scared of her due to her size and strength. Ema use to pull us while walking her and would choke herself out, we couldn't take her out in public due to her behavior. I read a review a neighbor posted about Pillas Pet Services and decided to give them a call. I called I was in touch with Pilla and told her about Ema , I filled out a form and then was scheduled for a home consultation 2 days later. After the consultation we signed Ema up for the 6 week Dog Obedience Training. From day one Ema was ready to train with Pilla and I, something that I thought was impossible with her since she was already 1 year old. Ema would be so excited to see Pilla and was ready to train, conquering all the commands and games Pilla had in store for us. We now take Ema out in public for walks, and she now knows that we are in control and not her. Pilla has mastered the art of dog training and their owners . She helps you better understand your dog and how to communicate with your dog. Your are not expected to learn everything in one session, Pilla assigns homework for the week until her next visit. I am proud to say that Ema will be graduating Today and has Mastered Dog Obedience training class.

Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !

Sherry does an awesome job! I receive pictures and updates after each walk. I also own a cat and requested that she just tell him, "hi" when she drops Scout back off. She sends pictures of him as well, which always brightens my day and makes me smile. Sherry also gives great advice and leaves us information and supplies that she thinks we could use. I work nearby and noticed her walking Scout one day....I saw her pet him affectionately several times and was communicating with him. You can tell she really loves animals. I am so happy we found her and wold highly recommend her!
