After looking and talking with a host of trainers, I picked Lauren to help me train Sailor. He's a ACD Blueheeler and is typically smart and can be "Hard Headed". Lauren and Sailor hit it off first rattle out of the box and Sailor and I learned a lot. I have purchased many books on dog training, Lauren taught us things that the books never even mentioned. Sailor and I are looking forward to our next lessons here at home, with her. No "Doggy Boot Camp" for us!
I got my yellow Labrador Retriever from K9 Kountry, but will not get him until next week. K9 Kountry takes the time to insure the dog is properly and correctly trained. My dog is being trained to be a service dog for me. I have watched my dog in training and I have total confidence in the quality of training he is receiving. Very anxious to bring my new service dog home.
I hired Maury and WeTrainDogs for a two week board and train program for my two six month old vizsla pups. I knew training two dogs with different personalities would be difficult, but I was truly impressed with the progress after the two week session. Both dogs walked in a heel position without pull and stopping throughout the walk. Both pups would go to their "stay beds" and not move until released. I wasn't expecting this level of progress after only two weeks. I am looking forward to the in home private training sessions that are in included in the board and train program. I am confident that their training with Maury will give me two well trained, well behaved, and enjoyable additions to my family.
Lynette did a wonderful job training a dog we had rescued. She was very professional and cares about what she does! I would highly recommend Lynette and Happy Pets!!!
My dog Abby Grace recently had a spa day with Debi. Although Abby is very active and stubborn, Debi made the grooming and bathing look so easy with no problems. Debi truly loves our four-legged friends and they react mutually. I will definitely use her services again. She has also done some obedience training for me and Abbr with good results
We've only had a couple of sessions with Stephanie and our two French Bulldogs but we already know she was a great choice for our dog training needs. First of all - she loves what she does and it shows in her work. Stephanie is also very responsive to the behaviors that we want to change in our dogs, and is able to make the training fun. Additionally, my wife and I have busy schedules, and Stephanie is very flexible to finding training times that work for us. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone considering training for their dogs.
Nancy is great! Today we had our first session with my blue heeler ChelseaBlue. Chelsea has anxiety and Nancy was very informative and talked me through Chels' training session. She goes through everything exactly how it's done and makes sure you understand everything. We've already schedule upcoming revisits and I'm very happy I chose Nancy to work with. I already have seen improvement with Chels' behavior.
Canine Training Center and Mr. Day literally saved our dog. The dog whisperer has nothing on this guy !!! Our 13 year old son wanted a puppy for a long time. We finally got him a 5 month old Australian Sheperd . The puppy was of course VERY high energy. Unfortunately he started showing lots of aggression towards people outside the house. We couldn't even walk him in the neighborhood because he would bark at everyone we passed. After the puppy had nipped at 2 people we contacted the breeder and were going to have to give him back. Our son was devistated. We put out a cry for help on thumbtack and Mr. Day with Canine Training Center reached out to us. We setup a meeting to discuss what what needed. He was extremely professional and calm . Letting us know everything will be ok and assuring my son that " Blue" could be the dog he wanted him to be. Our training was not just a quick one class and your on your own type of thing. It was 8 course class .Mr. Day trained us to train the dog , he walked us through all the steps of the process. It was very neat to see our son working with his dog and seeing the progress they made together. Since training Blue is so enjoyable and listens to us. Our training with CTC has allowed us to keep Blue and secured his spot in our family. We can't believe the turnaround of our puppy. They really do train Alphas..... if I could rate their services as 100 stars I would. Overall a truly outstanding experience with CTC .. Highly recommend.
Over the last year, I have been fortunate to have Hilton Butler from K-9 Bootcamp train my puppy so he could become a therapy dog. From the first encounter with the Butler family I knew my dog would be in good hands. They understood the purpose of his training and knew what he would have to learn in order to become a therapy dog for kids with special needs. I was greatly relieved to know that my dog would be staying in their house with their children. This meant a lot to me since my dog spent 6 weeks being trained. To know that he would not be neglected in a kennel on a large property was a huge relief. Auggie was immediately welcomed by all family members and was treated like one of their own pets. He was in loving hands from the moment he walked in the door. I felt that Hilton was able to apply various protocols to meet my dogs needs due to his extensive background with K-9 training in the military, police, and service dog environments. Hilton demonstrates a firm hand while training, but uses positive reinforcement as well, which was needed for my dog. He ensures that you know the protocols to carry over in the home environment after training is complete. If there was any question regarding Auggies behaviors at home, Hilton was available by email, phone, and even conducted follow up sessions at my house. K-9 Boot Camp is a professional and loving dog training facility. They excel in providing individual treatment to meet your specific training goals. Customer service and compassion for their work shines through. Hilton, took time on a Sunday in November to drive all the way to Auggies therapy test for moral support. Auggie passed with flying colors and now comes to work everyday as a certified therapy dog. He is happy in his new role making sure all kids have a smile on their face while receiving therapy! We could not have done it with out Hilton.
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.
I would recommend Zoom Room to anyone. Heather is a great trainer and is so encouraging, especially if you have a "hard to handle" dog. The training is a lot of fun and good exercise, as well. Lisa W.
Tammy helped us bring peace to our house again! We had two dogs and one was being aggreessive towards the other one. We really appreciated the training that Tammy gave us!!
Pamela is a truly wonderful dog trainer. We just completed our fourth session last week and, in just two weeks, my dog is already calmer and more well-behaved. She really gives you the confidence you need to make the training successful. Perhaps the best gift, though, is that in training with Pamela, I feel much closer to my dog. Both him and me couldn't recommend her more!
We met with Tena for an in home eval and plan for training our Maltipoo Samson. She is great! We are looking forward to working with her as we train our pup!
Brian was very good with our dog. He's much better walking on a leash and listens to us better than when he left. The only downside to training our dog this way is that it's a remote location so we have far more distractions in our neighborhood than out on the ranch. But Brian did some socialization training and left us with good tips and instructions for continuing to help our dog learn that he needs to be calm when approaches other dogs. Our dog was sad to see Brian leave.
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.
Mallory has taken care of my dog for over a year now whenever needed. She also spent some time training my dog. Mallory is very dependable and reliable, and great with my dog.
Chris is amazing with any personality of dog. I have an extremely stubborn male lab and a very timid female lab and both absolutely adore him. They have made huge strides since they started training with Chris. Not to mention - we have too! He not only trains the dogs but the humans as well!!! We have learned how to communicate with our dogs versus screaming and getting no response. Lol best decision we’ve made is hiring Chris!

I'm an owner of two dogs and two cats, and I love pretty much any furry friend instantly. I really enjoy being around animals and being outdoors. I'm willing to help with whatever possible when it comes to pets, such as walking, sitting, some personal training and exercising.
