Kim is a fantastic dog trainer! It is night and day with my dogs behavior. She is flexible and works with your schedule. Also, the group classes she provides are paramount for my dogs social manners. Insanely inexpensive for what she provides. Couldn't recommend more.
Solomon's dog training really understands dog behavior and their training needs. Our puppy has learned so much and is much more behaved
Amber is great! She is very detail oriented, We met with her before each vacation, she took careful notes re: our dogs' behaviors, preferences, habits, eating schedule. She is very professional, and at the same time she's great with our dogs. Amber sent me a report (via text) after each visit, as well as pictures. I highly recommend Vet Tech Pet Sitting, and I'm thrilled we found Amber!
I am a busy professional (and also a single mom) with a dog-loving first-grader. After three years of begging, I relented into my daughter's pleas for a new furry best friend and got a golden retriever puppy for our family. She was the sweetest dog, but I quickly realized that there is far more to training a dog than what I had read about in my puppy book. I checked out some of the puppy and dog training courses at some of the bigger chains around town as well went to one class at our vet, but I didn't feel like any of those matches were a great fit for what I needed --one on one attention and someone who could listen to what my challenges were with our pet --and help me figure out a training plan that realistically worked with my schedule. A friend recommended Canyon Dogs and I decided to give it a shot. It was a great experience! I ultimately decided the boot camp was worth the investment and I am so glad I did it. Our dog came back with so many of her "problem behaviors" in line --and not only that, I got very clear instructions on how to maintain the good behavior with drills, etc. I'll be honest, I thought that perhaps it was crazy to spend money on training a dog, but it is so worth it to have a well-behaved animal --especially if you are at a place in life where you are a little short on time, I was so grateful to have Winston's expertise to help guide us in the right direction. I'm so glad I chose a more personalized approach in choosing Canyon Dogs for our obedience training. I feel like we got so much more out of the experience than friends who chose other training methods. Also, I get the sense that Canyon Dogs really takes pride in their work and wants to have great results. They will treat your dog as "family" --one reason I try to also take advantage of their boarding services when the occasion arises. It's a worry-free experience to know that our dog is well-taken care of when we've been away.
Jasmine is an amazing dog trainer! She really helped me understand a lot of my dogs behavior!
Shadow (my cat) looked great, and he seemed like he felt much better on the ride home. The man I engaged with was professional, and seemed to treat the animals kindly. I will recommend, and most certainly will bring my furry friends back there.
It is obvious Ruth really lives animals. She watched my two schnauzers while we were away. She went above & beyond doing lots of little extras. We didn't worry at all about our dogs because she kept us informed, and updated. It was also nice to have someone watch the house while we were away. Ruth is very conscientious, and goes the extra mile. She is also trustworthy. We will be using her again and again!!!
David and Innovative K9 Academy saved us!!! I was so discouraged about my dog's behavior. He was still a puppy, but his behavior seemed to get progressively worse. As his overall behavior was getting out of control, he also got more and more aggressive. He was attacking our other dogs in our home and dogs at daycare. I was devastated after he attacked a puppy at daycare, and I had to seriously consider giving him up. We found David and Innovative K9 Academy and was given some hope. We signed up Daryl, our dog, for the boot camp program and have never regretted it. After David's boot camp program, Daryl was an entirely different dog. He no longer shows any aggression towards other dogs. He is obedient and the amazing dog we knew he could be. Also, after Daryl returned home, David went above and beyond our expectations in training us on how to keep Daryl's exemplary behavior. I cannot recommend Innovative K9 Academy enough! David is INCREDIBLE with the dogs he trains.
Roger has worked with several dogs of mine, in all areas of training. His approach is simple and effective. He is an animal lover and understands the needs and strengths of all of my dogs. He is currently helping me train a service dog. He has taught me to listen and observe so that I can be effective in the process instead of only depending on his expertise. I've had friends who pay enormous amounts of money having their dogs trained who end up with huge problems because they have no clue or understanding that they need to be part of the process. Roger's training isn't limited to his magic with my dogs. He's able to educate me so that I can be a part of the process with the best outcome for both of us. Roger's knowledge and experience with dogs in all situations makes him unique. I've been lucky to see him work with other dogs, some with severe behavior issues caused by past trauma and neglect. He is gifted. His work with each dog is unique. His ability to assess the needs of my dogs and provide the training that they need to rehabilitate and grow is profound. Miller Kennels is a great facility. It is clean, spacious and very delightful . If you get the chance to visit, plan on exploring. It's a haven for dogs, birds and humans. Thank you Roger, for your love and dedication to these amazing beings that provide us with the support and work and loyalty they want to provide. Whether you need basic obedience training, bird and retrieval work ,or training a service or search and rescue dog, Roger has skills and the ability to provide the best training for any canine in any job.
Mike is outstanding. Even after a couple training sessions my dogs has made tremendous progress walking with a slaked leash, following basic commands, and improved focus with distractions. Mike has helped me feel confident in my handler abilities and helped me train my dog into a well rounded companion animal.
After the training most of the aggressive behavior is gone . We are please with the results.
Blake is reliable and good with animals. He has a laid back and gentle demeanor, which I think helps a lot.
Tiffany huntsman is a very responsible individual and professional person. She will take the time with the animals to train them. She is very good at what she does. I will recommend her service's to anyone. if you are looking for a good dog trainer ask tiffany.
Tonya was quick to respond. She was very professional and prepared for our 1 hour training session. She worked very well with my dogs and helped my dog's behavioral issue in 1 session!

I've been watching dogs for about 10 years, your dog is always treated like ours! If they want to sleep on our bed that's fine, we just want them to be happy 😁
I have love animals since I was young. I have raised from birth many litters of kittens and puppies and bottle fed cockatrices and ducks. I have owned snakes, fishes, chameleons, turtles and other reptiles. I currently have a dog and two cats, the cats I kept out of three litters I rescued and found homes for last summer. My dog is almost two, been with me since six weeks old and is one of the dogs I have trained naturally. He loves other animals, he was house trained for 11 weeks, as well as knowing voice and hand commands since 11 weeks.
