Tricia is an excellent trainer and we could not be more pleased with the results. She has been training our new puppy crate training and potty training. Tricia has a great personality and has made it easy for us to understand the training process. I highly recommend her to anyone that has a new puppy.

Was very impressed with Bridgette and the way she approached the training. She was so knowledgeable and you could tell her passion was with working with the dogs. I look forward to future sessions.

I took my Standard Poodle to SMPR for Miriam to work with her on basic training & some behavior issues. With in three months I could see a huge differences not only in her behavior she had learned some basic skills. My poodle was a big challenge because of her inattentive behavior, very timid around strangers & very scared of loud noises. Miriam, took on this very difficult challenge and worked with my dog not only @ SMPR also in the obedience ring. My dog earned five titles.I am totally satisfied…I have a great companion dog that I am pleased to take anywhere I go. The quality of work was extraordinary!!

Janet is a miracle worker. She has helped me (in my home) for 18 months with a pit bull (rescue) that was globally terrified. This was a dog that didn't leave the dressing room for a year. She was able to accomplish things with the dog that I wouldn't have thought possible. (Ex. Getting the dog to walk calmly into the house instead of crashing into the door in her frenzy to get in). Helping me teach my dog to relieve herself outside. She also was able to train dog #2 (who I got to help with the pit bull), to go in a crate - which she had never before used - in just a few minutes. I would give her the highest possible rating....beyond excellent. She is truly outstanding. She is soooo knowledgeable - about why dogs do what they do, what it means, and how to handle it. Yes - she went way above and beyond. Ex: spending 45 minutes on the phone with me one night when I was trying to decide whether or not to keep the dog. Enlisting the help of a vet behavior specialist in Texas in determining what meds would help (which one, dosage, etc.) She was always on time, and her work was of the highest quality. Not a thing went wrong. She could not possibly do better.

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.

      I am so thankful for Emily! My Caesar loved working with her! Not only did she train Caesar (my male shepherd), but she also helped give me to tools to keep working with him after the training was over! I have now have been working with my puppy (since we don't live near Emily anymore) and I have the tools I need to give her some basic obedience! I'm so thankful for sweet, welbehaved dogs, and it is all because of Emily!

      Jess is an amazing trainer. She is so patient with all of her clients (dogs and humans alike). She is willing to help in any way possible to ensure my peace of mind while working with my dog. She has revolutionized my relationship with my dog as well. I am so pleased with how my dog responds to me because of the foundation Jess started.

        Heidi has an innate talent with animals of all sorts. She does an excellent job handling and caring for my rabbits. She has also been a big part of my 2 rescued dogs lives. She walks them, trains them, and provides 24 hour care by pet sitting in my home when I need to go out of town. She does exactly what I ask her to do regarding walking, exercising, feeding and bathing the dogs and they really enjoy her company. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants outstanding care for their animals. If you are considering hiring her feel free to contact me if you have any questions! jpartin26@gmail.com

        Merissa has helped me with the training of several of my dogs! Her knowledge of dog training and behavior are outstanding, and she has a way of presenting that knowledge that makes it interesting, relatable, and useful, no matter what topic or trick she's teaching. It's clear that she loves working with dogs and their people, and I can't recommend her highly enough.

        About

        We offer dog training services. Evaluation is free. Your dog is evaluated for training from attention to behavior characteristics and personality type to determine how our services can assist you. You will also receive a demonstration of the commands we teach and the methods that are used. There is a travel fee of $75 for evaluations outside a 25-mile radius from Lost Poplar. Residency Residency training is where your dog resides at Dog Coach K9 Training and receives instruction. Once completed, the dog is returned to the owner who then receives education on how to work with the newly trained canine. Private Lessons Private lessons are conducted in a mutually agreed upon location. Training is designed so that the owner and dog learn as a team, with primary instruction to the owner so that they may conduct the lessons and “homework.” Reform School This training is for dogs with serious behavior problems such as aggression, fear, and severe lack of socialization. Emphasis is placed on training as well as desensitization to the stimuli that causes the unwanted or dangerous behaviors. This is for residency only. Boarding Boarding is offered to training clients who have successfully completed a training package.

        About

        Atlantic Coast K-9 has been in business since 1999. I (Ralph Smith) have personally trained over 3,000 dogs and am recognized as one of the Top Trainers in the country. Most trainers in today's world are extremely basic and gimmicky in what they train your dog to do. That's a sure sign of an amateur. There are no gimmicks with me. I didn't get the reputation that I have for giving subpar training. My slogan is that we offer "Competition Level Obedience for the Average Dog". You can easily pick a dog out of a crowd that I have trained because that dog will be far superior to any of the other dogs around. I have titled more dogs than most other trainers and I am a National Level Competitor in Sport Dog Competition. Simply put, to get to the level that I have attained, you have to be the best of the best. That's what I have to offer you. My prices are reasonable but I'm sure that you can find someone cheaper. Just remember that you get what you pay for. I also offer a 100% guarantee that your dog will be exactly what you want it to be when I train it and I will continue to work with the dog to reach that goal for as long as it takes. See how many other trainers will offer you that. I also offer many services that very few trainers offer. This is a testament to my experience. Those services are: Basic and Advanced Obedience, Behavior Counseling, Protection Training, Schutzhund Training, Explosives and Narcotics Detection, K-9 Security Services, Search and Rescue Training, Show Dog Handling and Training Seminars.
