I highly recommend Andrea as a professional dog trainer. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher, she was readily available and very flexible with her schedule. Her instructions were very clear and beneficial. In addition, I appreciated that her price was reasonable and she made all of her suggestions in one visit. She could have easily and justifiably stretched the training out for multiple private visits. She addressed all issues in one visit but was willing to come back, if necessary.

The dog trainer is amazing!! I didn't think Aria could be trained at all but she came in and taught her all the basics. Now Aria is a much calmer and obedient dog, she is great to have around now. Thank you

Megan watched our deaf Great Dane Alice Gertrude for a week when we went to the beach. We rescued Alice Gertrude in February of 2015 and we didn't want to board her so soon. Megan watched our other Dane Magi and we knew she would be perfect for our Alice Gertrude. Megan stayed at our house for a week and took awesome care of our girl. Alice immediately loved Megan and they were best pals after 10 minutes. Megan embraced our Dane's "quirky" behaviors...sleeping horizontally, laying on her chest (Alice thinks she is a "lap dog"!!), & being the best leg-dryer after a shower! Megan is wonderful. ..always let us know how Alice Gertrude was doing, plenty of walks, lots of playtime, and I'm pretty sure an "extra treat" when Alice "blinked her baby blues" @ Megan. Megan is honest, trustworthy, dependable, & most importantly, will love, take care, & treat your pet like you do. Please consider Megan for caring for your 4-legged babies!! You will not be disappointed! ! Sincerely, Mark, Kendra, Parker, Sydney, & Alice Gertrude Brandt

Within one meeting our dog was coming to me and sitting on my feet on command. My initial thought was these collars 'shocked" your dog as a punishment. Actually, it's more of a tap on the shoulder to get their attention back on you. Many times I thought the trainer possessed a magic want. Wonderful to have a well trained dog!

I have used Dawn to watch our two dogs for 5 years now and she is wonderful with them. They are excited to see her and I can relax when I have to go out of town. One of my dogs is very anxious and she handles his condition beautifully. They could not be in better hands. She is very reliable and goes above and beyond e.g. meeting us at the Vet to assist when there was an emergency.

Andrea is an outstanding dog trainer and pet sitter. She has been helping me with my pets for years now. My dog Chaos is pit-lab mix and she is very hyper. Andrea has calmed her down significantly over the past year. Chaos loves Andrea and is excited to spend time with her and learn what she is teaching. I don’t know what I would do without her.

Stephanie was fantastic with my dog Adi. She clearly knew what she was doing and she was more than happy to answer all of my questions. Training a dog is more than the pet it is so much about the owner and how they behave and she helped me to understand that. I would recommend her to everyone I know with a dog.

I can't even believe how amazing my personal training session went with Heather! I have been so nervous about going through training for my dog just because I wasn't sure what I was getting into and I thought I would feel embarrassed because of his behavior. She not only made me feel comfortable, but my dog as well. I have been trying for ever to get my dog to walk good on a leash and it is not even fun to walk him sometimes. Heather had my dog walking perfectly in a matter of minutes! It was crazy. She also brought one of her dogs because my dog goes crazy on dogs when we are on walks. She had him not even wanting to look at her dog after probably 1-2 minutes! I really did not expect things to go this way. I was expecting her to come here tell me what I was doing wrong and then tell me to work on it for the next week or so and then schedule another appointment for more. NOT at ALL. I just want to walk all day now. After she left we went on a walk and it was amazing. We are going to Pet Smart now to give it a go. Cannot wait to attend one of her group classes. Not to mention her prices are unbeatable. If you really love your dog, like me and my family do, give her a try, it will change your life with your dog. She ABSOLUTELY knows what she is doing.

Went out of town for 2 weeks. Chris took very good care of my 3 dogs. He sent me videos of them playing all the time. Pictures of them sleeping. And basically let me know how they were doing daily. It's apparent he has a heart for animals. I have and trusted him many times with them and will continue to in the future.

Jan is an animal lover extraordinaire! She has cared for my dog for many years from pet sitting during the day to overnight stays for weeks at a time. I have to be able to trust someone with my dog, as he has a severe heart condition that requires different medications at different times of the day. He also needs to be kept in a calm environment, as too much excitement causes him to have cardiac "episodes." I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else but Jan because I can count on her to shower my little guy with lots of love and feel confident he is going to receive the extra special care he requires due to his medical condition. I can't say enough nice things about Jan, as her love for animals shines through in everything she does for all of the creatures in her life!

Step Up Dog Training classes are about more than just getting your dog to sit and stay; it is about building confidence in both owner and dog to foster a working relationship. As you and your dog develop new skills, you will learn more about your canine friend and how to encourage the behavior you need from it. We do group or private training for all breeds and ages of dogs. We hold group or private classes at our center, Surf Dog in York County, but at-home training is available to clients in the Hampton Roads area. Group classes are $100 for a seven-week course or $50 for a four-week course. Please contact us for information on all of our rates.

Is your dog out of control? Maybe you just got a dog and you want him or her to be well-behaved and listen to you? Here at K9 Connections, I can give your dog the foundation of basic obedience! He or she will learn to follow orders such as sit, down, heel, come, wait, and "leave it" after I teach him! I can help with behavior modifications also! I am a private dog trainer, which also means one-on-one training with your dog. I can come to you or you can drop off your dog to be trained! Hourly training is available also!
