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!

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.

Kimberly is amazing with my dog - I'm so happy to have found her! She's helped me out frequently, both for regular walks and out of town trips. I always have complete peace of mind when she looks after my dog...she sends regular text updates and photos, which is greatly appreciated. She is professional, reliable, and truly loves dogs - highly recommended!

She really knows how to train a dog. She is very polite and calm with them. I've seen a few of her trained dogs and they are extremely well trained.

Arrived promptly and was very kind, patient and understanding with my little daughter. She is definitely the "Dog Whisperer" and had our wild 6 month old German Shepherd obeying in no time. She actually got him to understand and obey 7 commands the first week and made sure we could perform the commands correctly, as well. She was also a wealth of knowledge on specific Shephers behaviors, what to expect in the coming months and years and gave us some expectations for him as well as warning signs to look for. I would highly recommend her services.

I have enjoyed the help Erin has given me and "Oliver". My little guy is quite the hand full and Erin has been very helpful with advice on how to handle him. She is great at communication. We scheduled classes and she was on time and very professional. He just loves her! Oliver is still quite young but I have seen a great difference in his attention and behavior. Thank you Erin!

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.

Loose Leash, LLC provided excellent training for Max, my German Shepherd, and for me. Max and I have learned so much because Trey was consistent, well-rounded, attentive, and enthusiastic. Max had obedience training and clicker training. He also had an introduction to search and rescue. I plan to keep using Loose Leash for further training purposes.

Dana identified & solved our issue of getting our rescue dog, Tommy, to jump into the back of the SUV in less than 15 min. Amazing! It was a problem that had developed suddenly after one slight car sickness episode. Dana is extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior & training, gave us all sorts of useful tips. We would not hesitate to call her again or recommend her to anyone.

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
