Katie was very knowledgeable and I was able to use what she told us into Maddi's training schedule. She was especially helpful in getting her to walk well on the leash. I would recommend her. \
Was very impressed she had my fearful dog listening to commands right away. She explained each step of training and adjusted the steps to work with Sheena
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!
Andrea came to my house to train my Dog, Loki. She was excellent! She observed his negative behaviors and gave me easy and EFFECTIVE ways to deflect his attention onto something more positive. We saw Andrea on Friday, 2/02/18 @ 9am and she was here for a hour. I've been using all of the techniques she taught me and although it's only been over 40 hours since she visited, Loki is already showing excellent improvement. She even called me back later Friday afternoon, to say she researched one of his more unusual behaviors and gave she gave me additional instructions for training Loki regarding this specific issue. I highly recommend Andrea from Belton Entertainment, she understands Dogs, what drives them and how to handle/control those behaviors. Good Luck!
TNT Dog training is the best of the best! She is such a hard worker and dedicated to the dogs that she works with! I recommend her over anybody around!
Joe does incredible work. We recently used Off Leash K9 for their Basic obedience course and it has been life changing for our little family. The speed at which they are able to take your dog from zero to hero is unreal! Can't say enough about Off Leash Richmond and Joe Zitzelberger.
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.
Stephanie is very good at what she does!!! She is a true animal lover and it's obvious when she talks about all of her bully breed rescues turned therapy dogs! She expects them to behave well and can train them to do so, but she treats them like their people as in always makes sure they are provided for: they always have food and water, are emotionally and physically sound, and happy even away from their owners. Highly recommended !
Merissa has helped me with the training of several of my dogs! Her knowledge of dog training and behavior are outstanding, and she has a way of presenting that knowledge that makes it interesting, relatable, and useful, no matter what topic or trick she's teaching. It's clear that she loves working with dogs and their people, and I can't recommend her highly enough.
