Our pup is only 6 was old and didn’t have interaction with her mother & limited exposure to litter mates for only the first 3 weeks: Lauren brought her 9mo old pup to interact as well as talk about the training and philosophy, etc. It was really great to see our Storm learning to be a dog, and good behavior as a dog right away. My husband and I were sold and went for the full training package :)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

My dog Bruno is a young rowdy pup, very smart but also very strong willed. After attempting to watch You Tube videos and train him myself, it seemed like I was getting nowhere. I was at my wits end and discouraged. I needed serious help! I brought my Bruno to Canine perceptions after reading good reviews elsewhere and needing help with his behaviors. He went through the 6 week off leash program and graduated yesterday. 1st, I'm very happy to have him home for Christmas but the change is so noticeable! I knew he would be super excited to be home and expected bad behaviors once he left. Only one day, but the change is extreme. The Staff of Canine perceptions returned my baby not only well cared for, but well mannered! The training they gave me put everything into perspective and gave me the understanding I needed to continue Bruno's training. I could not begin to explain how grateful I am to them.

During the meet and greet one of our shy cats even came out to meet Dayna. My husband and I were both shocked! Animals must know she loves them! We have started calling her our cat whisperer. She did an amazing job of watching them and we will definitely hire her again!

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!!
