We decided early on that we wanted to get our adopted puppy training. After interviewing several different trainers we decided to go with Travis and we couldn't have made a better decision!! He was great. Our puppy Brutus came back from his training and he was the most well trained puppy I have ever encountered! We always get compliments on his demeanor and how well he listens. He is always the bet dog at the dog park and the teachers at doggy day care absolutely adore him. Even after we moved we were able to call Travis with some questions about Brutus (that is our puppy) and some new behavior and he was more than helpful and informative. We would highly recommend Travis to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
We rescued a 70-something pound fearful, wannabe-dominant, no manners, clown of yellow lab mix. ‘Harley’ was a bundle of unbridled energy and attitude who growled and snapped at me a few times. He also *played* way too rough with our other two mild mannered dogs. My husband and I knew we needed professional help for Harley and ourselves. Enter Dog University. Have you ever watched The Dog Whisperer? The trainer from Dog University who came to work with Harley and us instantly took the lead and communicated well with both dog and human. She is a ‘dog whisperer’ in her own right. Amazing! The teaching methods used have always been very positive and appropriate. The instructor helped us understand what Harley needed, how we were possibly giving mixed communications and helped us instill good, balanced, adaptable training methods to achieve what we wanted from Harley. After the first training session Harley was walking loose leash, turning on a dime, sitting when my husband or I stopped walking as well as really getting the hang of the ‘Down’ or ‘Lay Down’ command. To boot, our instructor had Harley sitting, focused on her for a short time while she dropped the leash and walked away. Harley stayed! (We continue to work on this as well as focus) As a FYI only, between sessions we have a bit of homework to do with Harley. This simply reinforces what we accomplished during session. (Homework for us = 5 minutes a couple of times a day. Piece of cake!) Harley is by no means the perfect dog. However Harley is no longer fearful, he no longer will growl or snap at me, he walks like a champ with no tugging and is increasing his focus. I wholeheartedly believe Harley is a *lot* happier than he likely has ever been. I qualify this by saying the verbal and non-verbal communication between instructor and Harley as well as each of us and Harley is becoming crystal clear to him. He knows what is expected almost all of the time. When he is not sure, Harley looks to either of us for further instruction and then follows through. I would like to speak regarding the instructor. She is extraordinarily well versed in 'dog' (& human) and is a clear, positive, understandable communicator. She has been very flexible in scheduling and a positive influence on my husband and I, Harley and the rest of our pack. Our times together have, without doubt, been Win-Win. I hope this instructor feels the same. Would we rehire Dog University? In a heartbeat. If you decide to hire from Dog University be prepared to be extremely happy with the results. Obviously my husband and I recommend Dog University highly!! Additionally, friends and family have noticed and made positive comments about Harley’s manners and attitude.
Kaci is amazing with dogs. She has been training dogs and teaching people how to properly handle their dogs for quite some time. Don't let her youthfulness fool you! She knows her stuff! Kaci has always had patience to make sure my young daughter understood what she was teaching her about her dog. My daughter even won an award for handling thanks to Kaci and her expertise! She shows compassion for all animals and is driven to continue to be the exceptional trainer that she already is.
My dog and I learned so much in our obedience class! Caren is a wonderful instructor and makes learning fun. Rachel is a fantastic groomer who does the BEST nails with her dremmel. Everyone is friendly and professional. I recommend them all the time.

This establishment is very chic,extremely classy and most important it is inviting. This is by far the BEST establishment I have ever seen.Clayton is so caring towards my Banjo.

Thank you Clayton for all that you have done from giving me peace of mind and giving Banjo a place to call his home away from home.

Dexter S. began training me in September 2015. I decided to get a trainer after hitting a huge plateau in my work out regime. Dexter and his training program was able to let me see results that I had never seen in my own workout routine or past. Dexter works me out and also educates me. He listens to what I wanted to do and creates programs to target my main focus as well as other body parts that support my goals. Dexter also keeps me current on diet tips and foods that fuel my overall goals. Dexter is not afraid to push and challenge me, and I definitely have seen improvement in my body and endurance. Overall, it has been an excellent experience!
