    Artemis Dog Training and Boarding

    (8 reviews)

    I love dogs first and foremost! Training and caring for dogs is the great love of my life that just happened to turn into a business. My greatest joy is seeing that "Aha!" moment a client gets when they have successfully communicated with their dog and know training is successful.

  • Traveling Dog Trainer

    (174 reviews)

    I have an uncanny ability to read dogs. From the shyest to the most aggressive, they all respond favorably to me. Most importantly, I am a people person. The key to successful dog training is that the dogs' owners having the ability to replicate my interactions with the dogs in order to maintain the results they desire. Most trainers don't relate well to people since they're in it for the dogs. Getting inside the mind of problem dogs is fascinating for me, but my favorite has to be the opportunity to meet all the varied and fantastic people that own the dogs. It's always thrilling to build a rapport with the people so I know they will always call on me when they have problems with their pooch before any drastic decisions need to be made.

    I have over 20 years of dog training experience. My board and train program is conducted in my home so that your dog can learn good manners in a home setting. I focus on helping you bridge the communication gap between yourself and your dog. Each day is a new challenge. No two dogs are alike so working out the best training method and options that fit each situation is the best part of my job. And seeing the happy graduates with their families.

  • Wanda Woof Dog Training

    (21 reviews)

    I train deaf dogs. I offer a unique off-leash puppy class (10 weeks to 18.5 weeks) teaching the basics including bite inhibition and socialization. We work together to teach your dog polite manners and stop naughty behavior (barking, humping, etc). My goal is to help you shape a polite dog with manners using positive reinforcement and force-free training. I enjoy meeting a wide variety of people and their awesome dogs. I enjoy helping increase communication and the bond between dogs and their humans. It is humbling to work with dogs and I'm constantly learning from them. They are great teachers.

  • All About Dogs

    (21 reviews)

    Each individual dog and person is important to me and I strive to spend quality time with each one - even in a class situation. I will take extra time to work with any problem dogs outside of class until we reach our goals. I love dogs and am always so rewarded by seeing the changes that take place between the dog and their human once everyone gets on the same page. It's awesome to see a dog get to stay in their forever home and know that everyone is happy now - owner is committed - dog is a happy dog!

  • Stacy's Dog Training

    (5 reviews)

    I get results without intimidating or using harsh methods. I don't suppress the behavior, I change it . . . or rather I train people to help their dogs change their behavior. Training people how to communicate and understand their dogs is more important than anything. It's what I've always wanted to do and I can help people learn more about dogs than they thought were possible!

  • Dallas K-9 Academy LLC

    (1 reviews)

    Dallas K-9 Academy is the best and the most effective dog training available. Your dog is trained in your home (or place of business) with you and your family. Our effective techniques, developed through more than 10 years of experience, will help you teach your dog to understand how he should behave in normal, day-to-day situations that occur in your particular environment. Your pet benefits most from training when he can stay at home, in his family environment, where he is loved and cared for best, and where he receives the most individual attention. Because the home is where you spend most of your time with your dog, behavior here is critical for how well your dog will complement your household overall. We train your dog to mind you and all of your family members. Whether it is inside of your home, front or backyard, or when you need to leave your pet unattended, you are assured that your dog will behave. One of the key aspects to our training success is your involvement and participation. Because we teach you how your dog is being trained, you will understand why your dog responds best to certain commands and expectations. We listen and understand your needs and desires, so we can not only help you teach your dog to mind, but you will learn to better communicate with your dog in all circumstances. As a result, you will know how to get your dog to do the things you want him to do willingly and joyfully and with a minimal amount of effort on your part. We are committed to you having a satisfying and rewarding experience with your dog that will last his entire lifetime. Another option we offer is off-site training. Although we prefer to train your dog in your home or place of business with your participation, we understand that this is not always an option for certain owners. In such circumstances, we will keep your dog and train him, and you can be assured that your pet is receiving the best of care. We nurture your dog in our home and treat him as if he is our family pet. We do our best to train him in much the same way we would at your home. Your dog is never stuck off in some remote kennel (as with some training services) because this would not enable your dog to learn how to appropriately interact in a family setting. To be successful, your dog must be trained in an environment similar to yours. At the completion of training, we deliver your dog to your home and work diligently with all the family members to assure you that he will continue his newly learned behaviors.

Best Paws-Abilities - Certified Dog Training and Grooming

(5 reviews)

Best Paws-Abilities guides owners through a process that will help them understand, communicate and work with their dogs. They share with us their passion.

What do you love about your job?

My passion is helping through the process of understanding and communicating with the dog by resolving training and behavioral challenges. I love the flexibility and the independence of working with pets and their owners. Meeting new people who love animals as much as myself is a bonus. Lastly, working with rescues by helping the captured or surrendered dogs increase their adoption rate has been a blessing.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My father was a multi-business entrepreneur. His influence gave me the strength to start my own business. Animals have always been a passion. I love them and their "parents".

  • Dog Training

    K-9 University

    We offer training on basic obedience board and train. This program starts with your dog coming to K-9, and staying with us for 10-14 days. While your dog is with us, we teach six basic commands: heel, sit, down, stay, come and finish heel. The commands are taught verbally, silently (hand signals), and with leash commands (the position of your leash). We also work to counter condition behavior problems while your dog is with us. Some common behavior problems are housebreaking, chewing, digging, barking, bolting, jumping and mouthing. Once your dog has completed the training, we bring you and your family in for a one-hour orientation. Training the owners is the most important part of our obedience program! After the orientation, your dog returns home with you, and you will schedule a time to come back to K-9 for follow-up lessons. The follow-up lessons are once (or twice) a week. The lessons start as private lessons averaging 20-30 minutes in length; you usually will have 4-5 private lessons. After your private lessons, you will start your distraction lessons which include door manners and working around other dogs. From there, you will progress into a group class. We have group classes on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. Most owners average 4-5 group classes to graduate. At graduation, you'll receive a diploma, and the obedience is guaranteed 100% for life!
