Taylor knows her stuff. She always tells you the reasoning for her methods and helps you to understand what your dog is feeling. Tay is very gentle with our puppy and works incredibly hard the entire time she is with you for training.
My little dog is very fearful.-frightened of strangers. Not the K9 trainer! My dog was analyzed and I was told exactly what could be done to help her. And how it would be done
Bill has done such an amazing job with Aubrey! Before having him as my dog trainer, I thought that training my puppy was impossible. Aubrey was very disobedient, never listened when I called, aggressive with other dogs, and destroyed just about anything. I was running out of options, and considered giving my puppy away. K9 training was my last resort, and my best investment! Just a few days at Off Leash K9 training, and Aubrey transformed into new dog! He contacted me frequently about Aubrey's progress and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend him to anyone with dog issues!
What a great dog trainer! His experience and ongoing refresher training is exemplary. Great personal touch explaining his protocol and then our big sweet pit bull responded very well. She did very well in our first training and learned a lot. Couldn’t be happier.
Highly Recommend Elisha!! One of our dogs was about to find a new forever home. After a few sessions, Elisha trained all of us, we were able to keep the dog and everyone lives happily together.
We have a 5 year old pit bull that has been a stubborn, dog aggressive, and high anxiety dog since he was very young. He has a lot of energy but because of his behavior I was unable to take him on walks. Kelly, from Knine training showed me the proper way to use his pinch collar which stopped his pulling on walks all together. He responded extremely well to the corrections I was giving him with the pinch collar. Kelly has personalized the training by listening to our dogs existing problems and showing my husband and I the proper way to correct him. Kelly is always very patient and gives us great feedback which is always effective. Our dog has improved by leaps and bounds in just a matter of weeks with the help from Kelly. We appreciate everything she has done so far to help our dog and we look forward to continuing our training with her.
We have a 9 month old French Mastiff who is a big big dog and we couldn’t even walk him because he was just tugging and impossible to manage. After his two weeks with Bill and Megan he was walking off leash and obeying several important commands. It’s like we have the dog we always dreamed of owning. Now we will have our French Bulldog go in and be transformed as well. Can’t wait to continue working with our dogs so we can all have the best relationship. Thank you Bulletproof!
My husband and I have been very happy to have found Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. We had adopted a rescue dog back in March. The we decided to have him trained as well. Our dog Pistol Pete has been so great since we went through the training. He gets so excited every time Ms. Jan comes over to the house and now since the training is complete, knowing that we can contact her anytime, if we ever need anything or have any questions or concerns. She is wonderful and so helpful. We also take Pistol Pete over to spend time boarding with Ms. Jan for a few days to a week when we are out of town. We are very happy knowing he is being taken care of when we can't be home with him. She has the most clean environment for your pets and they all have a great space to run around and meet new friends. Every dog we saw there were so happy and comfortable in their own kennel. That made me happy knowing when we leave our dog there, he is kept comfortable, happy and spoiled in his air conditioned area and it was always clean!!! And it does not smell like a kennel in there and that really made me happy! If you are thinking about getting your pet trained, you could not pick a better person, or company to do this. We did our homework before choosing her. We contacted several other places in our area but was not happy with any of them and then Ms. Jan was recommended to us by our Vet's office. She came highly recommended and we are so glad we have her taking care of our dog. She is like family to us now and couldn't be happier with the professionalism and services she provides to her clients. So if you are in need of a wonderful, caring and loving person to take care of your pets or need them trained, you really need to check out Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. You will be very satisfied that you did.
Glenda was very professional and responded to emails promptly. She asked questions to make sure she understood fully what I was needing help with and offered solid advice and a training plan to accomplish those goals. She was never late and provided great quality work. The issues I had with my dogs were resolved with Glenda's help. She uses only modern training methods of positive reinforcement rather than rely on shock collars, prong collars, or other punishments so I felt very comfortable with her around my dogs. This is unlike most trainers who want quick results through old methods of training at the cost of your relationship with your dogs.The cost of her training was very reasonable and the service she provided well exceeded the cost. She is a great trainer with tons of experience. She is patient and knows the best way to help you (or will direct you to someone who can if she cannot which is a huge indicator of the level of care she has for her job... she isn't just going to take every case just for the money, she really wants to help you out, even if its with someone else). She's incredible and you won't regret working with her.

I teach people how dogs communicate so they can train their dog to be well-behaved around adults, children, big and small dogs, and new environments. While I love all training, my emphasis is on shelter dogs and dogs that are shy, frightened, and aggressive. I focus on educating dog parents through fun and easy hands-on training and resources. I teach people and their dogs learn for free!
Not only do my customers have my utmost respect, their dogs do as well. Any boundaries a dog has will be taken into consideration from being dominant to being too submissive.
