Sal is an extreemly talented trainer. She know so much about dog's needs and how to read them, even at first sight. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you.

They are fantastic. Absolutely 0 reservations or red flags working with them. If you are reading this then you are probably looking for a trainer... Rather then recommending these guys, I'd recommend you are discerning and listen to your gut when talking to any trainer. If they don't listen to you and think they know your dog after first meeting, if the dogs they work with look shut down, if they are so "positive" that they can't communicate back to the dog, if they can't get back to you professionally about scheduling, look elsewhere. If you get a tingle, look elsewhere. Maybe its because the trainer is not a good fit. Maybe it's because you are not ready for that training style in your training journey, but may be ready later. I love working with Sal and Perdis. I have worked with twos positive trainers, one other balanced trainer, and have gone to lots of training classes that have other trainers. They are amazing for a ton of reasons. But two things that really stand them apart. 1) Sal REALLY listens. Even if I am wrong, they understand that part of this is training the human. We talk through things I don't understand. If what they are telling me to do won't work for us , we find another way. If describe something about my dog as an antopromorphism, Sal still listens to glean whatever information is applicable. 2) Perdis is ON TOP of scheduling and questions. Yes this sound like it should be a given, but dog trainers are dog people not people people. On top of Sal's training expertise, Perdis knows a ton about animal behavior and they make a fantastic team answering follow up questions.

My 3 year old Shiba Inu went through a 4-week Board & Train with Sal and we immediately saw improvements during walks and at home. She really helped set the new behavioral standard with my dog and we're kept that up with constant training appointments afterward. Totally recommend!

Sal is an amazing dog trainer! Both of our dogs went to training camp with Sal. Each dog (and each dog owner) had different struggles to work on. Our dogs came home happy, healthy, and knowing what was expected. Her training techniques are intense, but they work. We missed our pups tremendously while they were at camp. Sal kept us up to date on their progress and met with us once a week to train us to be good dog owners. We consider this an investment in our pups. Training is hard work and requires follow through. If your family is struggling with your dog's behavior, then go see Sal; I highly recommend Dedication Dog Training!

My dog Sokka is training to be a Service Dog 🐕‍🦺 with the tremendous help of Dedication Dog Training. They not only helped put me with the right service dog candidate but also help me get him to the level of training that he needs to be to assist me medically and psychiatrically. I’m not sure why this website only let me pick three out of five options above, it’s just not fair because I would have picked all three. The response time from them is uncanny! I’ve never had them be late or even on time for anything, always early. I know traffic can get in the way of life someday but I doubt it would ever matter to me because I know at soon at they show up their professional attitude and work mode would kick in and we’d all have a great training session. It’s just paws down the best experience I could ever ask for from a training company. 🐾
