Our very energetic 3 year old Airedale, Winston, was running our household. After our first lesson, it was determined we weren't a lost cause, but had 'a lot of work to do'. We started at the beginning with 'sit'...... And, after quickly crate training, working diligently on recall and being counseled how to take back control, we are well on our way to a well behaved and obedient dog. Our last session with Ken included a successful open field/off leash recall from about 100 yds away. This from the crazy dog who didn't come to his name in the house and door dashed with no return at every opportunity. Not only did Ken work with Winston, but he taught us how to communicate, reward, when and how to reprimand effectively and ultimately train our dog. Our training with Ken literally changed our lives with Winston and in the best way - I don't know what we would have done without it!! Our pup is still full of personality and there is always a time and place to be a dog, but now we get to comfortably take and show him off around town without the anxiety of unknown behaviors.

I live in Galveston and I took my 10 month old corgi pup to Aloha after not being very satisfied with the results from local obedience classes. Taking Macy to Kevin and the Aloha facility was well worth the drive! I couldn't be happier with the training Macy received there. She came home a much calmer and mannerly dog, while still retaining her cute, saucy personality. We live in a high rise condo and it's important to me to have a well behaved dog. Macy is now very well versed in basic commands and Kevin also helped us address a couple of unique issues with city traffic and condo living. The Aloha facility itself is very impressive. It's is well planned out and the board and train program offers some extras I thought were really great. The ability to to remotely view the dogs in real time was a major comfort, especially the first few days when separation anxiety was high. Kevin communicated with us on a daily basis and sent many pictures showing their activities at every step of the training program. He also promptly addressed all of our questions and concerns throughout, with the added bonus of his very likeable, approachable personality and great sense of humor. One of the components I liked best about Kevin's program were the multiple daily "pack walks". Macy got to experience off leash walks with other dogs who were being boarded or trained at the facility which includes acres of fenced in gorgeous, natural terrain. The pictures Kevin sent reflected just how much Macy enjoyed the walks. As a result, she is now very calm when we encounter other dogs in our dog friendly complex and on walks, or at the dog park. I'm happy to say I received exactly what I hoped for for Macy with Kevin at Aloha. I honestly and without reservation give Aloha my highest recommendation. It's worth the drive, however far!

Christie has worked miracles for me and my dog, teaching my dog not to be fearful and me how to lead my dog. She's highly responsive and very understanding. She's made me a confident pack leader. I recommend her training services to anyone with a dog, regardless of size, age, or experience.

From the first day I brough Bambi home from the shelter, she was not a fun dog to walk. She would go crazy if we saw another dog while walking, so I began to avoid other dogs whenever possible. But after five years of that and a few failed attempts with other trainers (who labeled her with "dog aggression" or "barrier frustration"), one day she got off leash and sent a dog to the emergency vet. That's when we met Kris. Despite her history, Kris knew just within minutes after meeting Bambi that it was a socialization issue, not aggression. After just a few hours with Kris, Bambi had made great strides, and after just a few days she was playing at the off leash dog park! Kris understands dogs - from pack dynamics to individual temperament - unlike any trainer I've worked with. He has a calm, confident, and positive training style that relies on the reinforcement of good behavior instead of treats or punishment. He has transformed Bambi into a differnt dog, and I know that there isn't a dog (or owner) out there he can't help.

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience with Top Dog. Our dog Penny had developed some major behavioral issues - barking at strangers, jumping up, and not coming when called. Megan not only turned Penny into an obedient, dream dog, she also gave us the tools to continue her training at home. Worth every penny (no pun intended).

I found Julie while I was exploring the variety of things (shows, events, competitions) my dog could experience. I was referred to her for instruction in what is called Nosework (a fun search and scenting activity). Through this experience Julie has introduced me to methods of training that have developed my relationship with my dog I didn’t know was possible. Buddy (my 70 lb rescued mutt) and I are growing every day in our understanding of each other. I can better understand his behavior cues and He understands what I’m asking of Him.

We have been depending on Kim and his expertise for over 10 years. Our dog Sadie has anxiety issues, but the personal attention she receives during "training" sessions with Kim has allowed us to continue to travel with confidence and peace of mind. Now that Sadie is older Kim's personal care is even more critical for her comfort and ours! Thank you, KIM!!!

Great kennel for boarding and training dogs. They train puppies, work with gun dog training, and do obedience training. We had one of their trained dogs many year ago, and still love and miss that sweet girl, "Cass".

Michelle was fantastic! She came to my home to work with me and my puppy, Bennet. We worked on all kinds of things from obedience to loose leash walking to greeting other people and dogs. Bennet has been making such progress, I don't know what we would do without Michelle's help!

Viri did a board and train for my 5 year old dog, Nona. Up until Viri took her in, she would not listen and was just very high energy. 2 weeks after leaving Nona with Viri she was a whole new dog. She learned multiple commands and actually holds those commands until told it is ok to move around. I'm giving Viri a 5 star rating because I never thought Nona had a chance to be an obedient dog until Viri gave her a chance. You can also tell she just has a way with dogs.

Just an FYI for anyone seriously considering htraining / boarding for their dog.... Jennifer came highly recommended to me by several people in my neighborhood/community when I desperately needed help with a foster Shepard that had aggression and other behavioral issues. Thank God I took their advice. I cannot speak highly enough about Jennifer as a person, let alone her ability to read, understand, and communicate with an animal. It’s truly a God given gift. I gave her virtually zero information about this dog, yet She spotted several behavioral tendencies within two minutes of meeting the dog that were scary accurate. I left him with her for 3 weeks and picked up a totally different dog. Unbelievable! Her ability (and patience) to train me how to reinforce it all may have been her hardest part of the training :) With Jennifer’s help, I actually ended up adopting the Shepard and he is the best dog I’ve ever had. He goes EVERYWHERE with me and is happy, balanced, confident and obedient. All signs of aggression, jumping, pulling, nipping, destructive behaviors, leash or barrier frustration; food aggression, and territoriaI issues were gone. GONE! I was afraid to walk him or let people greet him before. Now I have zero fear of his reaction in any situation. All he needed was guidance and structure from me to be comfortable and looks to me for direction rather than reacting on his own. I know I have a leash, somewhere... haven’t used it in so long I can’t remember where it is. Just thought people should know that there is a TRUE dog whisperer in our own back yard. I can speak of my experience, and name at least a dozen other families that have had the exact same experience and level of success with their dogs thanks to Jennifer - I love having the four legged companion I’ve always wanted and thanks to her talents, my dog is my best friend and biggest source of joy rather than a source of stress or worry. THANK YOU AGAIN!!

I got a female German shepherd from Sharon. She came already trained, guard trained, protection, obedient, housebroke etc. She knows all basic commands and does them when told the first time. I love this dog so much. she is healthy also. I highly recommend this breeder for buying or training. she's the best! She knows what she is doing and After I got my dog I must have called her 20 times a day, she always picked up the phone and answered my questions. I also sleep well at night knowing "sasha" is in the house! Monica J
