I reached out to Mary in desperation because of my 6 year old boxer. He has serious aggression towards other dogs since he was 2 years old. My boxer and I have had two previous dog trainers in the past with no luck on solving his aggression issue, that is until I met Mary from Dogology. She came over to my house and asked me questions about our way of living. She made some real simple suggestions and I followed her advice. Once we had him crate trained and walking on the treadmill multiple times a day she suggested the best way to get to my dogs root problem would be going to the dog park. I was hesitate but I trusted her and I am glad I did. Long story short we have had 3 sessions at the dog park and his behavior has completely changed. The last session the muzzle came off and he did amazing! For the first time since he was a puppy he was able to be part of a pack and play with dogs as I've always dreamed. We still have a lot of work to do with my boxer but this is the first time in years that I am hopeful for our future. Mary is very talented , loving and laid back individual that has a lot of experience and knowledge to bring to the table. I can't express enough the level of gratitude I have for what she has done for me and my dog thus far.
I boarded my dog along with training for almost a month and I am so excited to see what she has learned. Kathy has years of experience and spent a lot of time teaching my dog and then teaching me. I understand my dog a lot better now and will reinforce the training daily so she doesn't forget. Thank you so much for helping me understand my dog and why she does what she does. I highly recommend this fantastic facility to anyone who wants to end up with a dog that understands them and wants to invest time into the process. This was a good choice for both of us and if she needs more training or refresher course for both of us this is where we will go. Also if you just need to go somewhere and don't want to take your dog she does just boarding however; I recommend both. Thanks again!
Robert has been helping train our German Shepherd Nuschka, since she was only 4 months old. At first we started with visits every fortnight to do basic training skills with her, which she picked up very fast. In between visits Robert gave us "homework" - training instructions to keep going with Nuschka until our next visit. We altered training with behavioral corrections, which within 5 minutes of Roberts training, Nuschka had already picked up and learnt what needed to be done. For eg. She started jumping our front fence and wandering the street early in the morning. After just 5 minutes of Roberts Training, Nuschka has not even considered jumping that fence again. Robert is amazing at what he does, he calls regularly to check up on how training is going and offers advice over the phone. He was very quick to offer guidance after a serious dog attack on Nuschka, which resulted in us having a better balanced dog after something so traumatic. Without Robert, I know our dog would never of had the opportunity to learn the things she has. Only today we started working on her search and rescue skills and will soon get into some protection work, which is a lot of fun for us, and Nuschka. The thing I absolutely love about Roberts training, is that he comes to your house, your own environment and he trains us, the humans, rather then just the dog. This gives us the skill set and confidence to continue to train future dogs to come, with the knowledge Robert has provided us with. Nuschka is now 8 months old, and we will continue to have training from Robert as there is always something new that can be taught! I happily refer Robert daily on our trips to the dog park when others comment on how amazing it is to have a dog listen to commands and act upon them. Robert is the real deal when it comes to training your dog and affordable!
I am happy to recommend Darcy at Pawsitive Difference Dog Training. I picked out a two year old border collie last Christmas from the Humane Society, and he was definitely a wild crazy man! Totally over the top. Over this past year, I got him settled down on almost everything, but I was having trouble with him reacting to other dogs. It was down right embarrassing and limited where I could go with him. For trying to fix that one habit, I've been through four other trainers. I can now walk up to other dogs and have him be friendly 90% of the time. Darcy just corrected a couple of things I was doing and guaranteed results! Super happy!
Great experience. My dog is learning so much, as am I.
I love ValorK9. Best trainer I have found in Spokane. Truly a joy to work with, great with dogs and exceptional at training me (the owner) to properly work with them! We have done canine good citizen, obedience, herding, rally and her board and train program when the pup was younger. They also offer boarding to clients. Great facility run by great people.
She is our dog guru. She taught us how to work with our dog. It was a one on one (Barb our dog Heishi, and my wife and I) training. She knows dogs. She is the greatest!
Tao Service Dogs, Charlie Bales Trainer is currently training my Service Dog Jack. Jack is a Standard Poodle who came to me earlier this year. Charlie has been training Jack 5 days a week since March 2013. Combined with classes outside of Charlie's training (but at her direction), Jack has grown into a confident dog well on his way to performing tasks I need help with. Tao Service Dogs training starts at the basic learning levels and progresses through public access and task based skills. Tao Service Dogs uses positive reward training, which helps my partner gain confidence and skills, knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Tao Service Dogs for anyone looking for positive reward, respectful and effective training for their Service Partners!

I am a certified dog trainer. I do pet/house sitting. I provide all care, including medications given to all pets. I will also water the plants, bring garbage can onto the street and do mail check. I will even park my car in the driveway and leave it there so it looks like someone is home at all times.
