I would highly recommend Lauren. The one on one guidance she provides is great. After only a few days, I can already see an improvement in my dog's behavior. I look forward to our future lessons.
Butch did a great job with our dog Harley she was a very aggressive dog before and had some behavior issues that needed to be corrected and butch did a great job helping her I would recommend this place to anyone!
After the first session, there was a huge improvement in my dogs behavior, and the instructions were easy to follow and continue after the instructor left the house.
Everything about Lynette is amazing. She treats my dogs like her own and has done amazing things with their behavior. I'm so happy I found her.
Nancy was very informative and started the training immediately while explaining the concepts and methodology of Bark Busters. During the first visit, Nancy took us through and practiced with us the techniques needed to train our dog effectively. We have seen an immediate change in our dog’s behavior. We are looking forward to our future training sessions.
Wanda was wonderful with my 2 year old previously neglected foster dog and was able to teach me some very simple techniques to start training him. After one session there was already a marked difference in his behavior. I am no longer as stressed on the what or how to train him. She is prepared with treats and how to start. And she emailed me further instructions on how to work with him until our next session. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Before her help, he was too antsy to pay attention, and I had no way to reach him. Now he makes eye contact and enjoys our training sessions.
Stephanie is a wonderful dog trainer! She helps me train my 4 month old puppy. She is very knowledgeable of dog behavior in general, and breed specific behavior, too. She teaches only positive reinforcement training techniques and is very sweet with my pup. Lola loves her, too!
Pamela did amazing with our dog. She was very good at explaining our dogs behavior and how to correct it. We were able to conquer basic commands and break his jumping habit. She was a pleasure to work with and very flexible with our schedule.
Tena is amazing! I had two badly behaved dogs that needed training. Tena helped me set up a list of behavioral goals for my dogs. She then provided a detailed training schedule to help accomplish those goals. After just a few weeks of weekly training sessions, my dogs can now sit, lie down, stay, and “leave it” on command. They now walk on a leash without pulling – something I was unable to accomplish on my own. Tena is affordable, knowledgeable, patient, and dependable. She teaches you how to train your dog so that you can practice commands on your own. I highly recommend Tena for any dog training needs. Cyndi L.
made our Irish wolfhound a manageable and more enjoyable companion and gave us clear guidance on how to continue improving the dog;s behavior, as well as the offer of future assistance.
Absolutely a delight to work with. This is my first time to have a dog and Arlene is helping me alleviate my fears. Knowledge is power. And all the informative tools, techniques and skills she is sharing with me helps me embrace and celebrate the joys of having Noelle( my sweet labradoodle)!!!
Elizabeth is such a blessing; I cannot say enough great things about her. I recently adopted a puppy, as a first time dog owner, and made the BEST decision to work with her every step of the way. She helped me since before I even adopted my puppy - she helped me find the best puppy for me and prepare my house to bring her home. After our first obedience training session, the puppy had already learned (among other things) how to sit!!! She is helping me socialize the puppy with my cats who have never been around dogs, and has taught me so much about understanding my cats behavior and body language that I had no idea about. Elizabeth is always available to answer any questions I have and is always willing to help. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
Amber is very personable and seems to love animals. Her dog was really trained well and got along with ours right away. I will know more once we get our BG back when she is done. I was very impressed with her place. There weren't a bunch of kennels all over and it was spotlessly clean. I think we made the right choice...
Beth was called to our house to help us with our rescue pit bull. She is a people person but most importantly she is knowledgeable trainer. Her philosophy on training meshed well with my family. She does not implemented dominance strategies which is unlike some other trainors here in the area. We want a family pet not an animal that fears us. I feel confident that with her helpful tips and training we will have the dog of our dreams. Our dog was abused prior to us having him. Already I see a significant improvement. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that has doggy behavior issues.
Karen has been taking care of my three cats and one dog for years. She is better than outstanding - lets my cats out to play in the backyard where they can't escape and then returns to let them back in. She brushes them, feeds them, takes care of the litter box. My sweet dog is a special needs dog; Karen loves Cali and takes extra special care of her. Karen is my neighbor and often just comes over and takes Cali for a walk or just checks on the animals even when I am in town. Does Karen go above and beyond? Absolutely! Karen couldn't do better as she is already the best!
Karen has been our go-to pet sitter for years! Our boys, two Australian shepherds, love her and we know that when she is here, we have nothing to worry about. We love that we can leave our dogs at home where they are most comfortable and not worry about leaving them in a kennel away from everyone and everything they know. Karen truly loves animals and has a soft spot for our doggies - it's clear by the way they act when she comes over! Recently, one of our dogs got out and was lost. Karen was so upset by this news that she personally went out looking for him. In the end, she is the one who found him and rushed him to the vet after he was hit by a car. He is doing great now and we are so thankful to have someone like her who cares so deeply for our fur babies.
I've been very pleased with Amy. We had the consultation - she was relaxed and gave all the time to ask questions that I wanted. We've had two sessions so far. She's very patient with my dog (a 25 lb. Doxie mix less than a year old) and me, letting me interrupt and ask as many questions as necessary. Our last session was spent entirely correcting behavior and giving me tips which was much needed. She seems very knowledgeable. Looking forward to the rest of our sessions. Amy is also very flexible with my schedule and willing to work with me. She has offered to let me text or call in between sessions if I run into problems or have questions. Very pleased so far!
We have two terriers, ages 4 and 5. We adopted both animals well into their adulthood, and neither had any training. We put up with the accidents in the house, the nipping, and the complete lack of obedience for far too long because we wanted our new additions to settle in before we started correcting their behavior. Well, that is where Damon came in. He assured us that our dogs could behave AND go to the bathroom outside. That they were not the worlds worst (although cutest) dogs, but actually good dogs! What? My dogs can be trained? I was a little skeptical. Initially, we signed up for a private session. We love our dogs, but surely he would change his mind when he met them. Our dogs interacted with Damon wonderfully. They are a little much at times, and he knew exactly how to handle them to get them to calm down or play. We worked on some potty training techniques and talked about the format of his training class. Sure enough, we enrolled our dogs into a six week beginner course and they really responded. They enjoyed going to the park once a week, interacting with other dogs and humans, and best of all, working for food! Never in a million years did I think my dog would "sit" on command. Now they sit, wait, lay down, touch, and leave it! AND THEY POTTY OUTSIDE. I know these things may seem extremely basic to some people, but I honestly didn't think my dogs could be trained - not even to sit. I know some of you out there have dogs like mine. I do want to say, Damon only provides the tools. If you do not reinforce the expected behavior at home then your dogs will not respond. Our dogs were ready to work every Saturday morning, but not so much when we got home. Once we started enforcing those expected behaviors we got much better results. Be prepared to put in just as much work as your pup. I highly recommend Damon! Can't wait to enroll our dogs in more advanced training!

because we treat animals like humans

I love animals and am great with them. I don't really have a business. I just want some part-time work. I hope I can help.

I train and care for dogs and horses as well as care for other animals, including reptiles, cats, birds and a lot more. I love working with animals, and training is a great learning experience each time.
