Thoroughly impressed with the training Bella received at VK and by Mike and Dee. Their facility is clean and totally dedicated to the best training a dog can receive. I definitely will recommend them to my friends.

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

Modern K9s provides great dog training. They came to my home to consult and meet my dog and we agreed on a package to help him learn. What I like best is they train and work with you and your dog in your home, in your real life situation. My pug loves them and they have made themselves available to answer questions and help retrain me. My dog could hardly sit still for 5 minutes, but after working with him, he is a joy to be around. Highly attentive and will sit as long as I want him to. They customize their program based on your needs and the needs of your dog. I am so happy I went with them over other choices.

First session was this week, we discussed what my problems were with my boxer to determine what needed to be done. she and her husband worked as a team with my dog and i could see results just after the first visit. i feel confident she will be able to help me to get my puppy on the right track of obedience.

Barbara is extremely knowledgeable about animal training. I am very satisfied with how my dog has progressed in just a couple of lessons. I love how she uses positive reinforcement to create a fun learning environment for both my pet and myself.

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.

Excellent pet trainer and boarding provider! They treat your pet like family, they make sure that your pet is included in daily activities so that they aren't cooped up while being boarded and they treat your pet as you would, with love and patience! When you pick your baby up notice that they've even worked with them to address any issues that they may have noticed, too. Great grooming services and I would recommend them any day!

Took my Cavalier King Charles spaniel at 5 months old to Vivian for puppy training and continued with 3 additional 6 week classes. Vivian was great in training me on how to work with my dog and also in getting us prepared for being certified as a therapy pet. Very pleased with the results.

Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!

We asked our vet if they knew any pet sitters, and we struck gold with Kelly. Our dogs LOVE going to Kelly camp! We know they are in good hands. Kelly loves and cares for our four legged babies as if they were her own.

Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !

Chelsea & Ty are professional dog trainers and lovers of all breeds. I wanted training provided in my own home in the circumstances and day-to-day situations encountered by my dog. Pugs can be stubborn to say the least and Modern K9s proved their integrity, quality, and ingenuity. They were eager to respond to questions or concerns at any time. I also sent my pug for a "refresher" when I had an extended trip. I think he came back home and thought home was a little boring. My dog was always eager to work with the trainers and they taught the two of us very well. I don't hesitate to recommend their service.

Rebecca has come to my home many times to take care of my black lab. She is punctual, respectful, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and fantastic with my senior dog who has cancer. I trust Rebecca to properly give all required meds plus a lot of extra hugs and kisses. She even volunteered to walk my baby without me asking her to -- she goes the extra mile because she loves the animals. And I love the photos she sends (again, on her own initiative). I just can't say enough good things about Rebecca and how great she is with both animals and people!

    I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with America C. this past weekend. She really showed great concern and care for my 2 dogs and was very descriptive in her messages to me while I was away on vacation. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I've had. I would really like to keep using her from here on out as the pet sitter for my pets. My dogs really liked her and she just took such good care of them. Please, if it's possible I really want to keep America as my pet sitter from here on out. It was a great experience and I knew from the "get go" upon meeting her, my dogs were in excellent hands with her. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!
