So far it is going great. Katie seems to know what needs to be done to help Tugger become a less fearful dog, which is the root of all his issues. She suggested her two-week boarding and training program, since we are in the process of moving, which is very upsetting to Tugger. He is in a safe environment with other dogs and caring trainers. When we pick him up, Katie will provide us with suggestions to continue on the right path to a peaceful dog.

Gail knows what she is doing, she is the best dog trainer in the USA. She is realistic, fair, reasonable, and completely honest. Throw away your clickers, throw away your e-collars, and find someone who can COMMUNICATE with your dog fairly, with clarity, and get the job done! Training method is totally transferrable, you don't have to take home a dog that only listens to the trainer! Take home a dog that listens to and RESPECTS YOU! Have an off-leash, trustworthy companion. Gail is the only person in the world who can do what she does- Cesar Millan, move aside!

Joe really knows how to work with my dog Rocky, mostly Belgian Malinois rescue. Rocky was very anxious and afraid of most people. He’s been difficult to adapt with strangers/new people and acted aggressive towards some other dogs. Rocky spent 3 weeks with Joe and his team in boarding and training sessions. His confidence has improved and I can have a few people over now without Rocky constantly barking at them or showing full aggression. We’re trying a few more weeks as I travel out of town. I know I’m leaving Rocky in caring hands when I take him to the Animal Motel.

Bridgette Ashmore, owner of REACHK9, is an exceptional dog trainer. It was important that I begin the dog training very quickly. I reviewed 3 companies, spoke with 2, and invited Bridgette to visit. I was definately impressed. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and supportive. She provides demonstrations, practice sessions, printed material, videos, dog supplies and food. She arrived at my home promptly on Tuesday and Friday and trained us for 4 hours. Her business is open 24/7 and responded to my phone calls, texts, and emails with suggestions and support. Bridgette Ashmore, REACHK9, is a wonderful choice. I have signed up as her client and look forward to our next session. I definitely see improvement in our dog. Bernadette Ervin

I hired Lisa to walk my German Shepherd puppy and play with her for a half hour 3 times a week. She has been very helpful, organized and has always wanted to make sure she is staying consistent with what we do with her as her owners. I'm so thankful we a good, reliable walker like her.

I don't know where to begin. I left my 9 month old german Shephard with Joe for 2 weeks. I was amazed when I picked him. Remington had a lot of confidence issue. He didn't like to go up or down stairs, go for rides and most of all go any where that was new to him. If I wanted to take him anywhere I would have to try and pick him up and put him in the truck. If we went to petsmart he would not get out of the truck. Taking him for a walk was not a pleasant experience. After I picked him up from Joe he was a different dog. Now if we are out side and I open the door on the truck he hops right in and is ready to go. I have no trouble taking him to petsmart any longer. And we both enjoy our walks every day. We have a happy mommy and happy dog now. Joe and Kelli did an awesome job and I would recommend him to anyone.

Rose Freguson is not the dog whisperer - she is the dog hypnotist, the ultimate trainer of dogs. I hired Rose for a few sessions with my dogs to help me get them under control for my disabled husband. What she taught them in a few sessions has resulted in a permanent change in their behavior. They are responsive, obedient, and they get along perfectly now with our neighbor dogs. If you don't hire Rose, you're wasting your money.

I've taken several classes with Janet and have done a number of private sessions with her. She has helped me learn to work with my very exuberant German shepherd and coached us through successfully introducing a second dog into our household. She is great to work with, very creative, and really understands dogs. Have recommended her to several friends
