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 :)
Butch did a great job with our dog Harley she was a very aggressive dog before and had some behavior issues that needed to be corrected and butch did a great job helping her I would recommend this place to anyone!
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.
She is a pleasure to work with, guiding us with our pup, teaching both us and the pup appropriate behaviors for success. I would highly recommend her and her methods of training.
Nicole is an outstanding dog trainer! When we adopted two shelter dogs of different ages two months ago, we didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into! We decided to bring Nicole in to help refine our dog's behaviors and help them settle into their new home quickly. Nicole's approach is both gentle and consistent. She also provided great tips along the way for things we can do going forward as our dogs' training becomes more advanced. Communication was always clear and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. All of us, dogs included, miss seeing her every weekend. She was truly a joy to work with! We highly recommend Nicole to all of our family and friends, and the minute we decide our dogs are ready for more advanced training, Nicole is who we will call! Thank You NICOLE!!! :-)
With only one training session so far I noticed a major improvement in my dog Bleau's behavior. He is so strong and pulls on the leash and Nancy was able to make him heel and obey. Nancy is incredibly knowledgable, helpful and accommodating. She truly cares about your dog and doing everything she can to ensure success with the training. I am so excited to practice the training excercises Nancy provided and see Bleau's progress!
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 is very kind and has helped us work with our crazy Bulldog Bella. Wanda takes a gentle approach and the dog loves her. She even met us at a park with her dog to give our dog socialization and play time. We have another dog but Bella enjoys attacking him. Most important is to practice the tools Wanda has taught us.
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.
Tammy was wonderful! She took the time to train us all and gave such great advice and suggestions that we can put in to practice. She is very knowledgeable and patient and I would definitely recommend her for any dog training needs.
Tena is amazing! I had two badly behaved dogs that needed training. Tena helped me set up a list of behavioral goals for my dogs. She then provided a detailed training schedule to help accomplish those goals. After just a few weeks of weekly training sessions, my dogs can now sit, lie down, stay, and “leave it” on command. They now walk on a leash without pulling – something I was unable to accomplish on my own. Tena is affordable, knowledgeable, patient, and dependable. She teaches you how to train your dog so that you can practice commands on your own. I highly recommend Tena for any dog training needs. Cyndi L.

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!!
Beth was called to our house to help us with our rescue pit bull. She is a people person but most importantly she is knowledgeable trainer. Her philosophy on training meshed well with my family. She does not implemented dominance strategies which is unlike some other trainors here in the area. We want a family pet not an animal that fears us. I feel confident that with her helpful tips and training we will have the dog of our dreams. Our dog was abused prior to us having him. Already I see a significant improvement. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that has doggy behavior issues.
I've been very pleased with Amy. We had the consultation - she was relaxed and gave all the time to ask questions that I wanted. We've had two sessions so far. She's very patient with my dog (a 25 lb. Doxie mix less than a year old) and me, letting me interrupt and ask as many questions as necessary. Our last session was spent entirely correcting behavior and giving me tips which was much needed. She seems very knowledgeable. Looking forward to the rest of our sessions. Amy is also very flexible with my schedule and willing to work with me. She has offered to let me text or call in between sessions if I run into problems or have questions. Very pleased so far!
Sarah is an excellent trainer, with expertise in helping dogs manage their behavior and emotions and become responsible citizens and valued family members. And she makes it fun for the dogs and their people. Worth every penny!
Learned how to best control my dog's behavior in very specific ways. Darlene has great communication skills with straightforward information on what I needed to do and explanations on why. She's a professional trainer and does not waste your time but gets straight to the problems that needs correcting.
We have two terriers, ages 4 and 5. We adopted both animals well into their adulthood, and neither had any training. We put up with the accidents in the house, the nipping, and the complete lack of obedience for far too long because we wanted our new additions to settle in before we started correcting their behavior. Well, that is where Damon came in. He assured us that our dogs could behave AND go to the bathroom outside. That they were not the worlds worst (although cutest) dogs, but actually good dogs! What? My dogs can be trained? I was a little skeptical. Initially, we signed up for a private session. We love our dogs, but surely he would change his mind when he met them. Our dogs interacted with Damon wonderfully. They are a little much at times, and he knew exactly how to handle them to get them to calm down or play. We worked on some potty training techniques and talked about the format of his training class. Sure enough, we enrolled our dogs into a six week beginner course and they really responded. They enjoyed going to the park once a week, interacting with other dogs and humans, and best of all, working for food! Never in a million years did I think my dog would "sit" on command. Now they sit, wait, lay down, touch, and leave it! AND THEY POTTY OUTSIDE. I know these things may seem extremely basic to some people, but I honestly didn't think my dogs could be trained - not even to sit. I know some of you out there have dogs like mine. I do want to say, Damon only provides the tools. If you do not reinforce the expected behavior at home then your dogs will not respond. Our dogs were ready to work every Saturday morning, but not so much when we got home. Once we started enforcing those expected behaviors we got much better results. Be prepared to put in just as much work as your pup. I highly recommend Damon! Can't wait to enroll our dogs in more advanced training!
