I am generally not the kind of guy who writes reviews, but Mike has a rare gift for training dog. Jethro, my 1 year old German Shepherd needed to learn the basic commands. We have had Jethro back from training for several months and he stays and heels as he is supposed to. Call Mike if you want your dog trained well.

Let's face it - Puppy Training is really about owner training. Amy and her partner John tailored their training to both the needs of our puppy and our family. We have already recommended Animal Talker to our friends (potential first time dog owners). We REALLY wished we had the opportunity to gets some "training" from Animal Talker before we brought our puppy home. We will continue to use them as our dog grows.

Amazing! Very beneficial for my 5YO boxer, he went into the 3 week training (being shy and a bit rebellious) and came out a very well behaved dog. I'm very grateful I found them and very thankful to Oscar for the training he's provided not only to my baby but also to me. Highly recommend Barks 5th Avenue. Great experience from the first time I requested info to the time the hand over happened. Grooming and daycare was also very good. Chowder will definitely be visiting daycare there and next is puppy training for my boxer. Old dogs can learn new tricks!

Ty is excellent with dog training. Zeus just loved her from the minute she walked in the door and she taught us so much in just the first lesson that he is already well on the way to heeling perfectly and is so much calmer when we take him outside. She is so patient and understanding of dogs, it's like she speaks their language. We couldn't have asked for a better trainer. We would very highly recommend K9 to everybody who wants the best in dog training.

Misty & Wayne did their first session with my dog Bailey on last Saturday and the results have been good. I am very surpised and pleased at the amount of change in my puppy already after just one lesson. She is more controlled and the tips that they left me with really work. We have been working daily since they left and the progress is very clear. We had went to a treat-based puppy training class at a local kennel that taught her commands that she only responded to with treats and totally ignored if treats weren't invoked. After one session, she is responding without treats. I'm impressed! Can't wait to get a few additional classes under my belt.

If anyone is having behavioral issues with their dog i STRONGLY recommend that you give Amy a call. Books & shows are nice, but actually having someone come into your home to observe your dog's behavior, SHOW you how to effectively correct it, all while educating you and your family on dog behavior, is phenomenal! I'd strongly recommend contacting Amy even if you just got a new puppy! She'll teach you how to properly train & raise them to be the most obedient, loyal, fun loving dog ever! It's not as hard as one might think. As long as you do it right! And Amy could definitely help you with that. I'd recommend Amy with Furever Home to anyone and everyone!!

Everything about them is amazing! Courtney has done such a great job helping us communicate with our deaf pit bull Sophie ❤️ She has progressed from digging to jumping on people, to learning to watch our eye contact, watch our hand signs, and completely stopped the digging! This experience has been the most amazing gift to our family! Our 3 year old son has even picked up on the sign language in order to communicate with Sophie! Seriously the best training I have ever seen! Thank you Come and Train It K9! Y’all are a blessing!

Mike and Missy are phenomenal. I left my 9 month old German shepherd with them for about 3-4 hours, and in that time alone, he had already progressed with Bishop by him not barking vigorously, pulling on the leash, or misbehaving. The reason I brought Bishop to train is because he was getting older, bigger, & stronger. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to control him. But Mike works with us both. He examines the relationship between the both of me & Bishop to better train Bishop for me. They also have land for bishop to roam, & I live in an apartment in Houston, so Bishop does not get to do that often! Mike invited me to come visit whenever I could so he could also teach me how to handle Bishop. He's doing basic training right now, but I already know I'll be bringing Bishop back for further training. What I really like about Prairie Kennles is that I'm getting my money's worth. I promise you will not be disappointed with their work.

Joey is wonderful to work with. She is professional, organized and knows her stuff. Our puppy is responding well to her methods and her support and teaching had been exactly what our family needed! I highly recommend her to any and everyone.

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!

I've had the pleasure of working with Dallas to help train my puppy in the past. She always came prepared, and tailored each session to the specific needs for myself and my furry friend. She set manageable expectations, was punctual and consistent. I love that her approach is one based on reward to help with training. It is very clear that she loves what she does, as it showed through her communication, patience and connection with myself and my dog.

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.

Britney has been my go-to trainer for the past year with all of our rescue dogs. She is very patient working with each other their personalities and we love the fact she uses positive reinforcement, not shock collars or anything of the sort other trainers quoted us using. She also has been helping guide us through the process of finding the right Service Dog prospect and owner-training legally. We definitely recommend her for all our dog training needs, whether in person or through Skype/Facetime when she's not in our area!

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 !
