Cindy knows so much! She was so helpful; my puppy is so much more obedient even just after the first session. I will definitely continue to ask Cindy for help with all of my dog training needs.

I am very satisfied with the training my dog received. My family adopted him as a 4 year old and he had picked up quite a few bad habits. While he will likely never be perfectly behaved, he is so much easier and more enjoyable to work and play with now.

Patti is amazing! She gave me practical tips on training my dogs and gave me insight into how their minds work. She showed me processes to help me work with them and gave me hope that I will be able to train them properly. She saw my dogs as loving, sweet and good dogs - like I do! Even just 24 hrs later I see a marked difference in their listening and wanting to change direction! I have 2 mastiffs and needed someone to come to my home since it wasn't possible to take them both somewhere by myself for training and she was able to do that. Patti is kind and gentle and I am so thankful for her help! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Our experience with Latony's Dog Training so far has been exceptional! Very responsive, very professional and very compassionate toward dogs. During our initial meeting they focused on learning exactly what we are looking for in training our dog and are helping us to created a long-term plan. We can't wait to get started on this process!

Our Lucy is quite sweet but also a very rambunctious Australian Cattle dog. This combined with her stubbornness and physical strength, she was out of control. Thankfully I found Alex. He is great! Right from the start he had Lucy following his commands. Lucy now sits / stays and comes when I call her. We are working on walking without pulling on the leash. It’s wonderful to see the changes with her. He loves dogs and they love him. I highly recommend Alex. I can’t say it enough, he is great!

Angelica really cares about our dogs she has made progress with our hardest dog to walk where other people have failed. We have multiple dogs and she takes all of them into consideration. We HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger

Margaret did a great job showing me just what it takes to become the alpha that my two dogs want to follow. She led by example and explained why she was doing the things she was doing, as she was doing them. It was a great help that she had given me a call prior and through about a half hour conversation got to know my two pups and our situation specifically, asking questions about details I would have never even thought of or considered. When Margaret arrived, she had a full page written out of notes she had taken from our phone conversation, and was thoroughly prepared for the lessons that laid ahead. She even had a print out of her 5 golden rules for us, each one being broken down into specific detail for my husband and I to follow. Many of the methods she taught were amazing to watch and I was able to see instant changes in my pups behaviors. She demonstrates thoroughly, then has you practice yourself until you get it down. She also brought us some bonus items, like lead ropes and a whistle etc. to help with our dogs training. Margaret is in no rush, she is there with you and is dedicated to you and your family. She dug deeper and deeper to get to the root of problems and find the best customized solutions. It was very clear that she was fully there and wasn't just dropping by for a paycheck. So far it has been just one week since she came to our home and worked with our family, and already I am seeing some positive changes in behavior. Margaret's program is easy to follow and easy to understand. You don't have to be a dog whisperer to have well behaved pups and a stress free environment with them. Can't wait to see how sticking to this program will help as time goes on! Thanks Margaret!

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

My pets love her and always look forward too seeing her. My cat is really shy but will actually bounce of the stairs when he hears her. My dog loves their walks and it's nice to have someone look after them when I have to go to the hospital again.

      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.

      She's been great for me! She walks dogs, sometimes feeds them. She also occassionally cares for cats. She brings the newspaper in from the driveway & the emptied trash cans from the street. She does a good job, seems to care about her work, and is very reliable.

        Just adopted her, the dog, from an animal shelter on July 3rd, 2013. She is about 1 years old. The shelter did not have much info on her. The dog is a great people-dog, but seems to have trouble getting along with other dogs. I would like to help her socialize with other dogs. I have never had a dog before. Unfortunately, I am on a tight budget and cannot afford anything more than $15/hour.
