Our dogs came back with the skills to behave. We were not sure that our oldest dog, Dante, would be cooperative. But he amazed us all. Mike and his team did a great job in teaching both dogs obedience. The cost is worth it!

Amy and her partner John are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable about animals and come prepared to make a plan that works for your specific needs. We have had two training sessions and we already see a difference with our dog's obedience. We are grateful that we found them!

Wow, it's a miracle is all I can say. I have two dogs that desperately needed help. A Weimaraner that was tough as nails and a Beagle that was soft as butter. My Weimaraner had zero obedience and was out of control in every aspect of the word. My Beagle was just the opposite; she would walk behind us, shy away from people and was very timid. I was very concerned about the training process. J.R. put me at ease by fully explaining his process and that the results that would come more quickly by using reinforcement and then following up with lots of praise afterwards on my big dog. I have to say the results are amazing; nothing short of a miracle really. My dog is so much happier, I am so much happier and I can't believe what a few sessions has accomplished. I only wish I had found him sooner. Oh, my little dog, the Beagle; she is progressing nicely too. He found her "happy place" and then worked his magic and brought her out of her shell. We could not be happier and strongly recommend J.R. with Green Timber Training. I will be telling all my friends that need training about the only dog whisperer I know.

Lee is a fantastic trainer. In three sessions, we've already learned so much. She's excellent with our puppy, and he absolutely loves her. She quickly determined his level of obedience and what really motivates him. My pup clearly gives her an A+. From a dog parent perspective, Lee is always punctual and great about explaining each step of the training. I don't leave reviews often, but Lee is well-deserving of high praise.

Mike and family at barks 5th Avenue have changed our life with our german shepard. She was wild and we thought we were going to have to give her away. There training gave our dog fina....another chance to be truly a house dog with manners. I can't thank them enough they are truly professional dog trainer. I would recommend them to everyone....my friend also had his dog trained there with the same results. Once again if you need a referral to call me that is not a problem

I can not say enough good things about Modern K9s. They are very trust worthy trainers with your pets. They kept us informed & sent us pictures though the 4 week obedience training and answered every question we had along the way. Our German Shepherd came back a calm and new dog! I would definitely recommend & use them in the future.

Nick is an incredibly talented dog trainer. I tried everything to get my dog to stop jumping on guests and Nick was the only one to come up with a solution that worked. You will notice a difference in behavior after the first session. Nick taught my dog basic obedience (heal, sit, down, etc) and patiently taught me how to consistently repeat these behaviors at home. He also gave me lots of helpful advice on how to teach fun tricks (like getting a drink from the fridge). My dog and I both had a really positive experience with Nick. Don’t waste your time taking a training class with someone else. Nick exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend him.

Amy worked with very difficult dogs. The chocolate lab had been abused and was very shy. Amy brought her out of her darkness. She began to interact with another dog and has made continual improvement. The other dog is a pit bull who had bad habits. Amy instantly knew what to do. Trained us on how to train the dog. The dog is different as night is from day!

Barbara is great!! I would highly recommend her. She has taught me so much on how to have my dog listen to me and follow what I say. I have known Barbara for a 1 1/2 yrs. I first met her when she was an instructor at a pet store. Riley is my first dog and I thought he was only supposed to be a dog. I soon learned that I had no control over him. Walks were difficult with him pulling and trying to run after other dogs and people. Barbara showed me in easy steps how to get Riley to do what I asked like no jumping up on people or not pulling during walks, etc. After training classes ended I began to attend her agility for fun classes. It seems like every class I am learning something new about my dog and what he can do. I now have a dog that will listen to me (well most of the time ) and I am so proud of him. We are still a work in progress but I couldn't have done it without Barbara gentle teaching and encouragement.

Thanks to OffLeashK9training, our lab in now an amazing obedient dog! She was a very destructive and active puppy. Now, she is active and obedient. We took her first for a puppy consultation and went back later for the e-collar training. Her obedience is amazing! We are not as stressed as before and we can see that she is happier too. She loves to show off her obedience skills to other dogs in the neighborhood! Bailey and his trainers have done a great job! Thank you!

I would definitely recommend Pilla's Pet Services, very reasonable, friendly and super knowledgeable! I promise, you won't be disappointed. I have 2 young boys and 2 fur babies at home , 1 of which is a Great Dane. We brought Ema home at 3 months she was the cutest puppy Ever weighing 25lbs. We always thought it was cute how she would run and jump on us or how she would jump so high to look out the window. Well as the months passed Ema grew so fast weighing 100lbs before her 1st birthday. She was out of control, and hard to tame, she would knock us down, she's broken windows, destroyed mini blinds and would eat anything that we left unattended. It got to the point where we were scared of her due to her size and strength. Ema use to pull us while walking her and would choke herself out, we couldn't take her out in public due to her behavior. I read a review a neighbor posted about Pillas Pet Services and decided to give them a call. I called I was in touch with Pilla and told her about Ema , I filled out a form and then was scheduled for a home consultation 2 days later. After the consultation we signed Ema up for the 6 week Dog Obedience Training. From day one Ema was ready to train with Pilla and I, something that I thought was impossible with her since she was already 1 year old. Ema would be so excited to see Pilla and was ready to train, conquering all the commands and games Pilla had in store for us. We now take Ema out in public for walks, and she now knows that we are in control and not her. Pilla has mastered the art of dog training and their owners . She helps you better understand your dog and how to communicate with your dog. Your are not expected to learn everything in one session, Pilla assigns homework for the week until her next visit. I am proud to say that Ema will be graduating Today and has Mastered Dog Obedience training class.

Good Boy Obedience is phenomenal! Not only did Sarah train my pomeranian and border collie to perfection, but she also taught me how to keep their training up. Her teaching technique makes it easy for newbies (like myself) to understand how best to get dogs doing everything we ask. In our private lessons we learned a ton of commands, but my favorite part was training them with the remote collar so that they can be off leash. I love not having to worry about them going crazy when someone new comes over anymore, or trying to get food off the table. Sarah does such an amazing job and I’m so glad we decided to train with her. Will book more lessons soon to teach them even more!

Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.

Carmen did a great job teaching our dogs basic obedience commands in preparation for a new baby in our home. They are still just as loveable but much better behave. She also pet sat for us when we were gone on vacation and we loved not having to worry about our fur babies. Excellent job and would highly recommend!

Bobbye had my dog performing right a way and showed myself and dog walker the same. She is pleasure to work with and explains why we do and don't do certain things. Training humans is harder than dogs.

Alan Digges is a great dog walker. He has walked my dog for several years and I have seen a great change in my dog's behavior. Steady, my Catahoula, is calmer and happier. Alan spends great care walking, exercising and playing with him, and he is very prompt and trustworthy.

We have used Pawfect Manners for puppy training for two of our very active dogs. A border collie and a Jack Russell. These breeds can be a challenge to train. We were very happy with the results. Our BC Strider is one of the best behaved dogs we have ever had the pleasure to own. We really love Judy's positive/rewarding approach to training and our dogs loved her. Both dogs have benefited greatly from this training as have their owners. Strider competes in canine flyball and is one of the fastest dogs in our region. Our Jack Russell Iggy is following in his big brothers footsteps. We would recommend Pawfect Manners Dog training to anyone who believes in positive reinforcement training and anyone who loves their dog and would like to have a well behaved pet. The small size of the classes gives every dog a chance to shine!

About

The first thing I do is a consultation with you in your home, at your convenience. In the consultation, I will go over what you are telling the dog by certain things you are doing, what the dog is telling you by certain things they are doing, health, nutrition, any and all questions, concerns, and problems you are having with this dog, a dog you had before, or someone else's. I don't care. The more information I can get into you, the better educated I can make you, and the better you make decisions down the road. You are the one with the dog 24/7, not me. The consultation normally takes about 2 to 3 hours and costs $200. After that, if you want to go on to the beginning class, you can do that one of two ways. Either way, you are guaranteed results. The board and train is a minimum of 2 weeks. If it takes longer, it doesn't cost any more. You are paying for results. By the time the dog is done, it will pay attention, respect proper authority, have self-control, lay down through any and all kinds of distractions, stay on a loose leash through any and all kinds of distractions, and do curbing (which are boundaries the dog will not cross until being told it is okay). The cost of this is $800 per dog. When we bring the dogs back, we will go over about half of what the dog knows. Then a week later, we will come back and go over the rest. The other way is we come to your home at your convenience. That is twice a week for 6 weeks, or as long as it takes, and the cost of that is $1100 for the first dog and half price for any thereafter. Anytime you have a question, you will call, so we can get you an answer, whether 1 week or 10 years down the road with this dog or any other dog you have. The big part is, I am going to help you understand where the problems are coming from, how it got started, so we can keep this or any other negative from coming back in the future, as you will know and see things before they ever happen in the future. If you feel you get enough after the consultation, then that is all you do also. Call with any questions that you may have. I also bring one of my dogs with me, so you can see the product that you are buying. I guarantee what I do, and I have never found a dog that couldn't be trained. Please feel free to call with any questions.
