She was very hands on with my dogs; training, walking, and playing with them. She would send me photo and videos of them during the 2 week board and crate process.
Offleash K9 help give me the dog i always wanted. Having a obedient dog has allowed me to take Zeus with with me to work. I get to incorporate him into my daily life instead of leaving him at home. I can't say enough thanks to this crew at OLK9.
Looking forward to our training. Sue has been great about information to make our decision and is already giving value.
So far, Performance K9 has responded and began working on a plan for my dog. I really appreciate that she is willing to assist.
We hired Tatiana to work with our young dog, Maggie. Maggie was a stray that we brought into our home. She, Maggie, had some issues and definitely needed some training. Tatiana was very knowledgeable about what Maggie needed. She worked with Maggie with patience, love, and firmness when needed. She also trained us in how we should work with Maggie. She also took us on a field trip to show us how to socialize Maggie which she definitely needed. She was very patient with Maggie and our other dog that wanted attention from her, also. We are so thankful for all the help and advice she gave us. Maggie has improved so much. Trudy Kinney
My dog was a stubborn older chow/lab mix. Yes you can teach an old dog new tricks. Jessica has proven this by the training she has provided in such a short time. She has made a new dog of him, which I never thought possible.
High Hopes for Dogs is the single best dog training resource in the Roanoke Valley! I adopted an older Boxer who had problems with dominant behavior and challenging dog-dog aggression issues that I had little hope of solving. At her worst, I couldn't even walk her on-leash in the presence of other dogs and after several dog fights, I was nervous every time I took her out, fearing she would hurt another dog or herself trying to get to the dog. Hope took the time to listen to my concerns and used positive training methods to help reduce my dog's instincts toward dominance where other trainers might have recommended harsh, punitive training methods to 'control' my 'alpha.' Hope also worked with me on noticing my dog's body language cues which helped me recognize when she was getting over stimulated or nervous in a situation, and helped me learn how to get my dog's attention in order to help my dog learn to look to me for leadership. Hope also suggested I take my dog to the vet to have a complete evaluation. We discovered she was suffering with hypothyroidism, which can cause aggression in dogs, and began treatment right away to bring her back to health. I'm so thankful we found Hope!
We brought Cera in as first time dog owners in need of help training our dog - as well as ourselves. She was a complete natural with our dog, and her calm, professional manner also helped calm our nerves. She was a steady, knowledgeable presence that got us through the first few months of owning a dog.
Trey is a great trainer. He understands the psychology of training and how to shape and change behaviors. He has a passion for working with dogs which shows when he trains. If you need basic training, behavior modification or speciality training like scent work, then he's the trainer you are looking for!
Gary was great. I took his puppy preschool class and I am looking forward to working with him more in the future as my dog gets older! I’d recommend to anyone.
Cam was fantastic with all of our animals. She critter-sat for a week this summer and honestly I swear they're all better behaved now than when we left on vacation! I'm almost jealous of how well she got along with our two jack russells, barncats, and three horses. Her rates were very compete as well. We'll be giving her all our pet training and sitting business from now on. So glad we connected with her.

I understand that most dog trainers can make a dog do whatever task a client wants, however without being able to convey, to the client, how and why the dog is performing the tasks the dog will quickly decline. I am able to help the client understand this information.
