Thank you Martha! I was very hesitant about getting a trainer, only because it is a little bit of a financial commitment and I think a lot of us think that we can do things ourselves, but I was really having a hard time with one of my dogs and decided that it was worth it to try a trainer. She was great. She was very responsive and attentive before I even hired her, and even more so after. She works with you to make sure you get what you want/need out of the session. She met my two dogs and helped me better understand why they were misbehaving and how I could make them better. She listened to all my concerns and addressed all of them, and best of all once she works with you, you can call her anytime for additional help which is very reassuring. On a side note she is also very fair, and if money is a concern she can definitely work with you to try to keep the time frame within your budget which was very appreciated. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I definitely recommend Martha!

I have been in the veterinary field for more than 20 years but I've never trained a dog. Without Jenn's help I would be lost! I own two Belgian Malinois under the age of 2 and they are a handful!Jenn's skilled guidance has been detrimental in the formation of obedient owner and obedient dogs!

Cindy Wilson is an excellent dog trainer. She even trained my dog to ring the bill to let me know when he wants to go out. I still call her till this day when I have dog training questions. Even though she's now in another state. I highly recommend her services.

I took my dog in for some behavioral issues... He likes to jump on people when I'm out walking him. Anne was very knowledgeable and offered straightforward advice and clear directions for helping this issue. I'd definitely recommend Anne's services to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

For anybody looking for a great dog trainer Lise Lauisva is the one to hire. Her training consists of training by positive reinforcement and non violence. She train's with love, patience, and tolerance. I purchased a baby, boy Golden Retriever and within months he weighed over 60 lbs. With this size dog there is no way to "muscle" or "control" your way into a well mannered member of the family. It took many training sessions with Lise, a lot of time on my part, practice on his part, and patience by my extended family and friends. Remember he was a puppy weighing in at 60 lbs at 6 months. Today he is 1 year old and 98 lbs, he is happy, joyous and free. I need not kennel him all day while I am gone because he does not chew on any item in my home except his own toys. He is fully potty trained, crated trained for car travel, and behaves very well on his leash. I do not know what I would have done had I not found Lise to help me with him. He is a joy to be around and a pleasure to all who meet him. He is still a puppy, playing hard and long, but he is a very nice dog. I am very grateful to Lise for teaching Me how to help my dog and me how to learn. Thank you so very much.

We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!

Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!

I have an 8 year old mini schnauzer and a 3 month old labradoodle. Charyce has been able to cater to both dogs and they are responding well to training. Theye have very different personalities and attention spans but we have been able to work with both during our sessions. She is very patient and loves animals. Her methods are calm but firm and the dogs respond well to her commands as well as my own.

What makes Daphne stand out as a trainer is that her competence, integrity and authenticity in what she does shines through. There is a level of ability Daphne has to not just understand canine behavior, but a Deep Understanding of the mechanics in dog psychology. This is something not all trainers have!! Her website was a major selling point for us. She volunteered lots of information that other trainers are charging for. All in all, Daphne is highly professional, personable and immensely knowledgeable. I would recommend her services to any dog owner.

J.P. is a fantastic trainer. Unlike most other trainers, he has a firm grasp on dog personality and will help you to thoroughly understand your dogs way of thinking. Once you understand how the dog thinks, it will allow you to get the dog to do what you need it to do. As long as you follow J.P.'s lesson plan and advice, you will se a whole new dog. J.P. doesnt change or train your dog, he trains you as a dog owner. Worth every last dollar. You will be amazed at the results.

I chose Gina because she was featured in several articles as being one of the best dog trainers in the area. She took very good care of my dog, giving her plenty of attention and exercise, taking her to the park, lake, and trails. She focused on the training I felt my dog needed the most plus reinforced some basic commands. GIna was also very flexible when I wanted to visit my dog and see how her training was going. I highly recommend her.

Phenomenal trainer! Great at helping animals with behavioral problems or if you just want to teach your dog to sit and stay he can do that too. He has been able to make aggressive animals adoptable and trained many animals for television roles.

My clients have been very pleased with Darcie and her training skills. If you are looking for a dog trainer so that you can better communicate with your dog, I would recommend Darcie!
