    I did not hire due to personal reasons, but they were outstanding in the areas of responsiveness, courteous handling of concerns, competitive pricing, and flexibility. We will definitely be hiring their trainer to come to our house soon!

    Megan helped my family with our dog Kona. He was showing many signs of aggression. We hired Austin dog zone and within 4 lessons Kona is a differnent dog. He is learning relax and that he doesn't have to be in charge all the time. Thanks Megan for giving us the skills to help Kona. You guys rock!!

    I love Austin Dog Zone! My dog, a Basenji named Loki, has some anxiety issues. After adopting him for the local shelter, it soon became apparent that I would need some help. He was scared of everything: dogs, people, noises, and even things I couldn't see or hear. I turned to Austin Dog Zone for help with this, especially his on-leash reactivity. The moment we met trainer Caitlin Lane I was impressed, she obviously knew what she was doing. Over the course of four private lessons at my home she taught me everything I needed to know to help Loki with his anxiety. 2 and a half years later and Loki and I can go to the park and meet other people and dogs worry-free! I genuinely believe Caitlin is the best dog trainer in Austin. She's naturally good with dogs, she's extremely knowledgeable (I've never had a question that she couldn't answer), and she's infinitely patient. I really like that she focuses not only on training the dogs, but on teaching the owner what they need to progress without her. I've only met fellow ADZ trainer Reed Morgan once, but after talking with her I was very confident she was of similar caliber. Megan Sartori came on board after I moved to Dallas, but I have no doubts she's great. Finally, Laura Neiheisel is always friendly, helpful, and quick to respond over email. I know she does a ton of work behind the scenes, but in addition to that she's a fantastic liaison for the company. To sum up, Caitlin and ADZ have had a lasting impact on my life and the life of my dog. I'm so grateful for all their help!

    We love Austin Dog Zone. I continue to be amazed by Laura and her willingness to educate. From the first time I asked for help to my ninety ninth question---she responded enthusiastically and quickly with a wealth of information. I have noticed a tremendous difference in my dogs behavior and health thanks to Laura's training and diet tips.
