I was so impressed with Rona's knowledge and ability to quickly tune into our dog's behavioral challenges. She was very patient and explained everything we could expect in terms of how she will approach training our dog that is very fearful of strangers and other dogs. She is taking her time to build trust with our dog and is very optimistic that we can help her to be a confident, more social pup! I'm ecstatic we found the right trainer for our family!! Will update as the training comes to completion!

Really liked working with them. We were super worried about how our Great Dame would react to a trainer, because he has such bad public manners and is super crazy toward people and animals, but they were willing to work with us and meet us a few times before training so our dog would feel comfortable when they did take him for two weeks. We had a great response with their training and are continuing to work with them after the two weeks.

My dog has made a lot of progress in just two visits so far. Corey is professional and very knowledgeable about dog training. I like that he comes to my house and works with both of us on setting boundaries around the house and with the cat. I highly recommend using this trainer.

Brought both our 'boys' (Bouvier des Flanders - head strong!) to Canine Academy for puppy training nearly 10 years ago and have continued to use them for boarding since then. Can't say enough good things about Lisa and her crew. The boys are so well-behaved (and know some pretty great tricks) and perk up when we say "Are we going to see Lisa?" Highly Recommend for training and/or boarding!

I can’t say enough about Jennifer and Lucky Star Dog Training. I have a 1yr old Shepard that had behavioral issues. I dropped him off at Jennifer’s lovely home facility, and 3 weeks later picked up a totally different dog! Jennifer taught him basic obedience, manners, and he had zero social issues with other dogs. She taught me how to communicate with him and consistently reinforce behaviors. I have a happy, fun, obedient dog I can take anywhere! Amazing!

My 16 mos. old dog learns so fast after her first dog training recently. It is amazing to watch how she improves so much in a short time. Christie did an outstanding job with her.

Kevin is very professional and skilled in his dog training abilities. My Frenchie completed a 2 week board and train program. She is much calmer and has MANNERS! I am continuing her training at home and it's been great. The Easy to follow instructional video using my own cute puppy doing her new skills has been very helpful for the whole family! We are so happy to have the Lola we new she could be🐶

I adopted a dog that was totally out of control. I took 5 training lessons from Tori at Riverdog Academy and it was life changing. She taught me how to train my dog and she helped me understand how to “talk”to my dog. Now my beautiful pup is a wonderful, well behaved, energetic, member of our household. I have recommended her to all of my dog owning friends. Brenda

I cannot say enough nice things about Doug. He takes amazing care of my dog, Penny and always sends updates on how she is doing. He is always accommodating to my hectic schedule and gives me the most important thing when I'm away...peace of mind. I know that not only is my home safe, but Penny is happy and well loved. Often when I return from trips, I find a thoughtful note and lovely plant or yummy soup waiting for me from Doug and Kitty. And the amazing part about all of this is the extremely reasonable pricing! If you choose to hire Doug, you will never look for another pet sitter again, I guarantee it,

Kris is awesome! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I got my dog, Apollo, almost a year ago at the age of a year and a half. He was the easiest dog at the beginning, did everything I asked. A few months ago, Apollo, started to challenge me on everything, going on walks became impossible because he was so hyper. Then he became aggressive or at least I thought he was. When we'd walk, he'd try to attack any walker, biker, or runner that came near me. He started to growl and act like he was going to attack anyone that would come into my house. It got to the point, I was about to take him back to the pet shelter I got him at. I was terrified he'd bite someone and then he'd be put down. I was pretty against professional dog training, as I've heard horror stories from friends of spending a large sum of money with no results. After a very close encounter of Apollo almost biting a girl renting a room in my house for the weekend, I gave in and thats when I met Kris. Kris came to my house for a free two hour evaluation with Apollo, in which he got to know Apollo, I told him about the struggles, and then we went on a walk. Kris showed me several training techniques even during the elevation. He cares far more about helping your dog and you build a stronger relationship, in which both parties are happier, than just getting his money for the training. Kris is very passionate about what he does, which helps create a fun, exciting, training environment. I have never felt stupid for not knowing how to handle my own dog, or for asking questions, even if I had to ask the same one several times. Kris doesn't just take your dog and train him, he involves you, the owner, a great deal. This helps me a lot, because I didn’t know anything about how to train a dog before this. Kris will give me pointers, or explain why Apollo is acting a certain way when I do something. I feel very lucky that I have a dog trainer who is not only patient with Apollo, but so amazing at training me on how to train my dog. Kris is truly amazing at what he does, and seeing his connection with animals is extraordinary. I’m telling you, if you want to see immediate improvements hire Kris. I highly recommend not waiting to contact him, with his results his services will be in high demand soon. Thank you Kris, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that Apollo is such an obedient, loving dog now, our relationship/connection is so strong, it’s incredible.

About

My focus is on mid-day dog walks and pet sitting. Daily visits consist of 30-minutes walks for your pet to stretch their legs and have a potty break. Perfect for the new puppy who is being crate trained and needs to be let out during the day. Pet sitting for those who want a weekend getaway or extended vacation with up to three visits per day. Although my primary care is for dogs and cats, I also care for fish, birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, and gerbils.
