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.

Erika is my go-to person for dog training and dog sitting! I have two rescue dogs, both adopted at the age of two with no training. Needless to say I needed help badly! Now my pups sit and wait to go in and out of doors, and they will do most anything for a treat. It's also nice to be able to go out of town and not have to worry about my fur babies! She's the only one I trust with them (and also to stay at my home with them), and she sends me plenty of updates while I'm gone.

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

We did Board&Train for a very wild but lovable Pug, Jack. Jack was 10 months old when we got him and obviously did not get proper attention prior to our adoption. Jack was wild and very skiddish. I had trained him a little but marginal success. Joseph took over while we went on vacation. He went above and beyond. Jack now responds to his commands and is a regular member of the family (instead of being a wild Pug). Joseph was very patient with the dog & the family (with kids). He has a passion for training dogs & it shows. Joseph is very conscientious and insightful. I highly recommend Board & Train, a very efficient & effective way to train your dog. Plus, Joseph's prices are very reasonable. Lastly & importantly, Joseph is an Army Veteran. It's great to support a veteran!

Lisa was great! She was flexible and and fairly priced to work with me and my pet's needs for my weekend away! I came home to happy animals with everything just as I left it! Lisa gave each of my animals (a dog and cat) individual attention and I can tell my dog is worn out from a weekend of playing and getting spoiled rotten. Thank you Lisa for taking such great care of my "children!"

I have 3 GSD, 2 of which were only days away from going to a rescue, or worse. We were at our wits end with them. That is until we found OLK9, I did all my home work (tried to find something bad) found no issues with OLK9. Got the money together and off the first one went to see joey he kept in constant contact with us while he had out first of 3 babies. The day we got karma back I knew we had made the right decision and had no problem bringing the next 2 for him change, joey and OLK9 are not dog trainers they are dog savers. If more people would make an investment into their dogs as quickly as we do our cars there would be a lot less animals in the shelter. Joey transformed all 3 of our dogs, I have had to call for advice here and there. Almost all the time it has been my mistake not the dogs. Not only do we still have all 3 of our dogs but one of the dogs that was on her way out, made such a turn around that we decided to breed her (never would have done that in her past). It's impossible to give joey and his staff enough stars, so I guess 5 will have to do.

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.

Gail is an amazing dog trainer and person! She was always patient, answered all of my questions and taught me the foundations for dog ownership. Because of her training, my dogs are well behaved and loved in my community. She is truly one of the best and I am so glad to have had the experience of allowing her to help train my dogs.

My dog is not well trained, (my fault), and I am not confident leaving her in the care of just anyone. But Shelley is different...her dog handling skills are excellent...she makes you feel like your dog will be well looked after, properly cared for and most importantly loved! She does a great job!!!

While training my dog Michelle also trained me due to Pocket being my first dog. It was an awesome experience because Michelle is very patient and enthusiatic. I went though puppy, intermidiate and trick training with Michelle. She knows and loves dogs and their people.
