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

Paula made a site visit to my apartment and met with my Dog and me. She quickly identified the problem I was having with my Shiba, and drew up a plan on steps we can try to fix the fear aggression that my dog displayed. Paula asked quite a few questions which were right on queue with all the concerns I had with my dog. I look forward to seeing the results in my dog in the following weeks to come. My main goal is to have a people friendly dog, and I would like to be able to bring my dog to dog parks so she can interact with other people and dogs.

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 recommend Run Poochie Run for anyone who knows their pets aren't pets but are family. Sterlin was not only professional and knowledgeable but I knew at our first meeting that he was someone I could leave my dog with.

She is amazing with our dog. She is dependable and reliable. Most important to me, she is trustworthy. I wanted someone that I could trust leaving my dog and house with, she is the one. I would highly recommend her.

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.

My work stands out from the rest because I strive for perfection in everything I do. If the job is done and I see something I don't like, I will redo it.

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.

I have always been a sincere lover of all animals, especially dogs. They have always taken to me extremely well. I seem to be able to talk their language.

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!

Dogs are life. I will walk, feed, play, and care for dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do not discriminate! My favorite activity is to go to trails and walk with dogs. I have high energy golden retrievers who sleep in bed with me, share my food with me, and give me a reason to live. I am looking to bring more dogs into my life whose owners unfortunately do not have time to walk as much as they would like due to jobs or family concerns.
