Sylvia has a lot of experience and is very knowledgeable. We adopted a German Shepherd and him being our first dog, we didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into. She gave great practical training and advice. We feel so much more confident after our session with her. Highly recommended!

Martha was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was very thorough and helped us better understand our dog's behavior. We adopted our german shepherd mix about a year ago and have been trying to resolve the issues on our own but have been unsuccessful. We are so glad we hired Martha and got her assistance. She showed us how to fix our dog's issues on the leash and now our dog is enjoyable to walk, when before it was always a battle. She also helped us with our dog's barking and anxiety around strangers. Martha seems very passionate about helping dogs and their owners and even gave us a follow up phone call after our visit. We are also glad that we hired her because she is available by phone if we need any further assistance. Overall, great experience!

What an outstanding dog trainer! She had our Aussie doing commands on day one that left us absolutely speechless. We're looking forward to our upcoming sessions!

After just 2 sessions I'm already seeing tremendous improvements with my dog, an 11 year old shepherd mix rescue with dog-aggression issues. I recently started working at Amazon and want to take my dog to work, but her behavior with other dogs (barking, growling, lunging) would be unacceptable in the workplace. I am confident Jevry will quickly get my dog to be well-behaved around other dogs. Jevry also very honest, talking me out of a 9 session training plan, telling me she thinks a 5 session plan would be enough. Her price is a great deal; it would be hard to find such a good trainer at this price.

I was very specific with the issue I wanted addressed with our German Shepard and Alex did not fail to deliver! He gave us solid answers and suggestions and truly knows his way with dogs. I wound not hesitate to use him in the future and highly recommend him as a trainer.

Bringing our German shepherd to Karen was easily the best thing we ever did for her!! Sadie is an insecure dog with a bite history. Karen’s love for animals is so evident and was the reason we felt comfortable leaving our baby with a stranger. Thanks to Karen and the e-collar training we are now able to do so much more with her. With the solid base set for us to work off we’ll be able to take Sadie so much further in the future. Thank you Karen!

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.

We have a 4 year old German Shepherd Dog, Lila, that is a perpetual puppy--extremely high energy and playful. We were having a lot of issues while out walking or hiking with her because of constant pulling and leash reactivity around other dogs. We found Julie and were immediately impressed with her resume of handling large dogs (Malamutes) and training them through positive reinforcement. Julie has been full of valuable tips and strategies that have focused on positive reinforcement, repetition, and the gradual increase of distractions when training. After several sessions and lots of practice in the neighborhood, we are really starting to see results. Taking Lila out for a stroll is now much more pleasant and manageable. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Julie and would absolutely recommend her!

Daphne was awesome!!! She worked with the entire family on how we could better communicate with our young German Shepherd. Knowing what your dog needs and teaching him to understand what you need is KEY!! Very knowledgeable lady!!!! A+++

Holli has been an absolute blessing for my pup and I. I work 12 hour shifts with a very unpredictable schedule week to week. She has been flexible and able to come when I have needed her to take my pup for a walk. She is so kind and has helped us out tremendously. I have also had a training session with her and my dog. She was knowledgable about how to fix a few things with my dog and also recommended things I had never thought to fix. If anyone is need of a dog walker/sitter/trainer, she is hands down the best person to contact in Louisville!!

We hired Kyle's dog training to help with our dogs Aspen and Ryder. We have seen positive improvements in Aspen's confidence with social issues and coming to us when she is called. Ryder had issues with meeting other dogs and walking on a leash, he has come a long way since we started our private lesson with Kyle. Thank you Kyle :)

Becky was recommended to me 6 and 1/2 years ago after Raffle, a rescued Great Pyrenees and Dutch Shepherd, year old male, indicated that he might be willing to work with me (a wheel chair user). We had taken him to puppy training as a 1 year old and had two other trainers in to help. Becky was attentive to my needs and could 'speak dog' better than anyone I had met. We worked together for a shorter period than either of us expected because Raffle learned so quickly. He uses his own problem solving techniques to help me with mine and adapts to my changing needs. Becky has stayed in touch all these years and taught me how to teach Raffle. I now have "The Greatest Service Dog in the World" as Raffle is known at the Veteran's Hospital that I use. He has been through 9 Hospital Admissions with me as well as traveled and been in 1000's of situations. Raffle and I am Eternally Grateful to Becky who showed us how to be such a successful team. Becky we look forward to your invaluable ability in teaching Raffle's replacement. Thank you Becky you definitely are the best!

Worked with Cameron with a rescue German Shepherd that was a mess! Contacted 1 other trainer that didn’t understand the breed and gave awful advice. We were trying to get this dog healthy and sound for a permanent home and it was crucial that he was safe and not pet smart quality trained. Cameron to the rescue! Cameron fully understood the breed and what training was needed for this type of dog. He not only worked with us on training . He was available to support by phone last minute when I ran into challenges. He was fully invested into our success. I am happy to report Vince is living a healthy, happy life with his brother and another female shepherd in New York. We couldn’t have made this happen without his work.

Randi knows her stuff! She is always taking classes to better her knowledge of dogs, dog training, and behavior. She brings that knowledge into the classroom and you can tell. Her methods are well vetted scientific based and proven time and time again, while being extremely humane and efficient. We can't get enough of her classes!

I highly recommend Aisha! She has done outstanding work last year with my 3 month old male dobie. The board and train option was the perfect choice to develop Bodhi into a well-mannered and confident puppy! She truly cares about both you and your pet by teaching you how to become a strong leader for your pet. As Bodhi grows up, I know I have the knowledge and tools that Aisha provides to ensure his continued growth and maturity into adulthood and an important member of society! Thank you Aisha!!!

Kathy is an excellent teacher for both the dog and the human(s) who interact with it. She is knowledgeable in all fields of dog behavior, but is especially gifted in early training and socialization. She has raised a number of dogs from puppy hood both for private clients and for assistance organizations. I personally have known several of the assistance puppies she has raised. I am pleased to see that one of these puppies on a regular basis as an adult assistance dog for a wheelchair-bound friend. It is wonderful to have known this particular dog as a puppy knowing that the firm foundation she received is what enables her be such a wonderfully helpful companion to my disabled friend. All dogs, not just working dogs, deserve this kind of early foundation to help them reach their full potential as loving and beloved family pets.

I have worked with other dog trainers but Jeff goes so much further than most. He gave our border terrier the chance she needed and all our lives are so much the better for it.

So far my dog loved Brandon, and in my consultation I am applying what I saw him do with my dog, and its working. Looking forward to the real training, for me and my pup!
