Wonderful experience for the dog, for me and for the dog's owner. Looking forward to an extended association with Lee as the training continues.
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!
We have 2 dogs, both are under 1 year, that were in desperate need for some obedience training. They basically ran the house and were both starting to become destructive and unruly. The fact that Nick would come to our house when it was convenient for us was awesome since the idea of dragging 2 dogs to a packed training class on work nights was not ideal. Nick suggested the use of both training collars and shock collars which have really helped in getting the dogs to behave and follow commands. Nick also helped me understand how my behavior was only making the dogs worse. One thing to keep in mind when hiring a dog trainer is that you are a big part of the training once the trainer leaves. We have been active in their training and are seeing dramatic results so far. Nick was always accommodating to our schedules, always on time and very professional.
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.
AMY IS THE MOST AMAZING PERSON, AND THE DOG TRAINER I HAVE EVER MET. WITH IN MINUTES SHE HAD CHANGED MY DOG. WITH IN 20 MINUTES SHE WAS ALSO TRAINIG ME. WE HAD A 2 HOUR SESSION. TRUST ME IT WAS HARDER FOR ME, THAN MY DOG. HANNAH (MY DOG), AND I, ARE ALREADY HAVING THE BEST WALKS EVER. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE AMY AGAIN NEXT WEEK, TO SHOW HER THE IMPROVEMENTS WE HAVE MADE. MY GOAL IS TO GO THE BEACH AGAIN, AND LET HANNAH PLAY IN THE WATER. IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO NEEDS A REALLY GOOD DOG TRAINER, PLEASE CALL AMY. THANK YOU, LIZ SENSBAUGH
I had a doberman, Rose, that was a challenge to walk. She did not go out for walks. I found Come and Train It K9 and now Rose and I go for walks! John and Courtney really understood Rose and gave us the tools we needed to be successful. The team is extremely professional and genuinely wanted to make sure we were successful. I learned about my own shortcomings when it came to my with and toward Rose. I very much recommend Come and Train It K9 to anyone who has a dog with challenges. Rose can go out for walks now.....life is much better for her! Thank you John and team!
Kristen is very knowledgable and has a great skill with dogs. We needed some obedience and behavior training with an adult dog new to our family. I would surely recommend her.
Barbara is great!! I would highly recommend her. She has taught me so much on how to have my dog listen to me and follow what I say. I have known Barbara for a 1 1/2 yrs. I first met her when she was an instructor at a pet store. Riley is my first dog and I thought he was only supposed to be a dog. I soon learned that I had no control over him. Walks were difficult with him pulling and trying to run after other dogs and people. Barbara showed me in easy steps how to get Riley to do what I asked like no jumping up on people or not pulling during walks, etc. After training classes ended I began to attend her agility for fun classes. It seems like every class I am learning something new about my dog and what he can do. I now have a dog that will listen to me (well most of the time ) and I am so proud of him. We are still a work in progress but I couldn't have done it without Barbara gentle teaching and encouragement.
Got my dog started on walking and avoiding some distractions. I was very pleased. Explained every part of the training and why.

Matt has been walking my dog Mama for 2 years now. Mama is a special case dog, who does not like other dogs, however as her mom I refuse to keep her in doors all day. So I spent weeks and hours finding the RIGHT dog trainer/handler for my precious baby. So that I could be at work at ease, knowing she was in safe hands, but also getting some fresh air in her day. Matt fulfilled all of my requirements. He was knowledgeable and knew exactly how to handle Mama in order to keep up with her training. I cannot tell you how much of a relief it was to find him! He is respectful, timely, and GREAT with communication. You're family member will 100% be in the right hands with Matt.
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!
Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.
I was very impressed with Dallas' ability to teach my hyperactive dog to respect me and follow my commands through positive reinforcement. She is dedicated to ensuring you have the tools necessary to maintain a well mannered dog long after her training program is over.
Excellent pet trainer and boarding provider! They treat your pet like family, they make sure that your pet is included in daily activities so that they aren't cooped up while being boarded and they treat your pet as you would, with love and patience! When you pick your baby up notice that they've even worked with them to address any issues that they may have noticed, too. Great grooming services and I would recommend them any day!
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!
I can not say enough about how AWESOME Sheena is when it comes to training your dog. We have a Cane Corso and she is the best. I love her climb command. Several times I have had a contractor or someone come in and they had no ideal she was even there. One guy asked me if she was real because she had been so still and quiet. I can have a house full of kids running around and if I put her in a down command or climb she never leaves that command. I never knew how great it is to have a well behaved dog. Shenzi walks so well on her leash heeling perfectly. If you are having any issue with your dog or need any kind of training. I highly recommend Sheena. I took Shenzi in to be groomed at a pet store and everyone in there was complimenting on how well behaved she is. The owner wanted to know who my trainer was so she could send some of her clients to her. No matter where we go I always get compliments on her behavior. Love Love Love what she has done for Shenzi and our family. Thank You Sheena!!!
Randolph knows what he is talking about! I felt like he was very knowledgeable, understanding and really does care about dogs! I came to him for a consult and I left very impressed. He had great command of his own dog and seemed very comfortable with my own dog. He seems like a people person and a dog person! My dog has socialization issues with other dogs and I had trouble finding a trainer because he is considered a "giant breed". Randolph taught me a lot about the issues with my dog and presented me with different options for training (board and train & private sessions). My only issue is the cost. I will have to wait to begin training because the training will negatively affect my budget...more than expected.
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 !
