Good Dog Training arrived promptly and immediately got to work helping us with our dogs behavior and ours as well. She gave us sound instruction based on experience and training. Our dog responded very quickly and it making progress! Thank you Good Dog Training!
Our very energetic 3 year old Airedale, Winston, was running our household. After our first lesson, it was determined we weren't a lost cause, but had 'a lot of work to do'. We started at the beginning with 'sit'...... And, after quickly crate training, working diligently on recall and being counseled how to take back control, we are well on our way to a well behaved and obedient dog. Our last session with Ken included a successful open field/off leash recall from about 100 yds away. This from the crazy dog who didn't come to his name in the house and door dashed with no return at every opportunity. Not only did Ken work with Winston, but he taught us how to communicate, reward, when and how to reprimand effectively and ultimately train our dog. Our training with Ken literally changed our lives with Winston and in the best way - I don't know what we would have done without it!! Our pup is still full of personality and there is always a time and place to be a dog, but now we get to comfortably take and show him off around town without the anxiety of unknown behaviors.
So far it has been a great experience and look forward to learning more to train our dog.
Carol was very helpful in my dog's training experience. She was calm, informative and knowledgeable. Will be using again!!
Really liked working with them. We were super worried about how our Great Dame would react to a trainer, because he has such bad public manners and is super crazy toward people and animals, but they were willing to work with us and meet us a few times before training so our dog would feel comfortable when they did take him for two weeks. We had a great response with their training and are continuing to work with them after the two weeks.
I have an 11 month pup that I was quite frankly having a hard time getting under control. She's my first dog out of college and I quickly realized that I was in over my head. After searching the internet, I decided to give Kevin with Aloha Canine a call. From my initial phone call to my drop off- Kevin was ready to answer any question and walk me through the game plan with my pup. He outlined a training program that was easy to follow and individually tailored to my dog's needs. She spent 3 weeks with Aloha Canine and I can honestly say she is a changed dog. She is much calmer and responds quickly to my commands. I am absolutely thrilled. I know that training a dog is a daily habit, but I am sure that with the foundation that Aloha Canine has now provided we will be A-OK! I look forward to working with my pup and mastering all of her new commands together. And I'm sure that if I have any questions in the future- Kevin will be there to help. Thank you so much Aloha Canine!!
My 16 mos. old dog learns so fast after her first dog training recently. It is amazing to watch how she improves so much in a short time. Christie did an outstanding job with her.
At this time I'm quite pleased with 1st Class K9 Dog Training and Cory V. Very professional, respectful, responsive and punctual. Cory up on meeting my puppy went wright to worke and had him work in a more positive manner is short order. I believe this company is going to be a good value for the money!
I can’t say enough about Jennifer and Lucky Star Dog Training. I have a 1yr old Shepard that had behavioral issues. I dropped him off at Jennifer’s lovely home facility, and 3 weeks later picked up a totally different dog! Jennifer taught him basic obedience, manners, and he had zero social issues with other dogs. She taught me how to communicate with him and consistently reinforce behaviors. I have a happy, fun, obedient dog I can take anywhere! Amazing!
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.
I adopted a dog that was totally out of control. I took 5 training lessons from Tori at Riverdog Academy and it was life changing. She taught me how to train my dog and she helped me understand how to “talk”to my dog. Now my beautiful pup is a wonderful, well behaved, energetic, member of our household. I have recommended her to all of my dog owning friends. Brenda
We got immediate and positive results with sarah of Training Tails. We plan a follow up and highly recommend her methods and training
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.
Went to Canine Academy for training with my 9 month old German Shepherd puppy. He had reached the stage where if something doesn't change, he would have to go. I talked to Lisa, the owner, who told me that the toughest time was between 8 and 14 months, and that she was confident training would help. We went, and it did! The training was casual but focused. My 11 y/o daughter came with and spent a lot of time working with the dog. It's obvious the instructors know what they are doing and have had experience with many types of dogs. I would absolutely recommend this place...and I have!
Viri did a board and train for my 5 year old dog, Nona. Up until Viri took her in, she would not listen and was just very high energy. 2 weeks after leaving Nona with Viri she was a whole new dog. She learned multiple commands and actually holds those commands until told it is ok to move around. I'm giving Viri a 5 star rating because I never thought Nona had a chance to be an obedient dog until Viri gave her a chance. You can also tell she just has a way with dogs.
My dog responded well to the trainer and her dog even though he is very shy.

I train dogs to obey and learn. While I can, I also train mobility and PTSD service dogs. I am taking the time to learn about your needs and the needs of your dog.
I help train behavior dogs and give basic help to owners having issues. Examples are chewing, biting, jumping, barking, and many more.
