Susie is an excellent communicator and truly excellent at what she does. She spent an exceptional amount of time with us and our dog. Her knowledge of animal behavior and health is top notch. Our fist session was very informative and she provided very good insight into our dogs challenges. She also recommended a new leash and collar and was equipped to provide those tools to us without an extra trip to the pet store. We received homework and training treats to begin our working with our dog on own. We will definitely be contacting her for additional visits.

Kim was very professional and really seems to understand dog behavior. She was not as harsh as some other behaviorists that I have worked with in the past. I am really excited to continue working with her!

We have followed Sarah to three barns! She is a amazing trainer/instructor! Relates well with the clients of all ages. My daughter has been with her since she was 9 and is currently 15. Sarah has become a mentor and friend of the family! She is as wonderful with the animals as she is with the clients. So glad to have her in our lives!

Tim is highly professional and a wealth of knowledge I have had dogs my entire life, and yet learned more in the couple of hours we spent together than all that time. It was incredible to watch my dog respond to Tim. As he interacted with my dog he was able to explain the behavior I had been observing and probable causes. Many things FINALLY made sense after he explained them. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone.

Working with Elena was an amazing experience. Not only is she well informed on dog behavior and training, Elena also answered any questions I had about her methods. She even informed me on how to reinforce her training and tricks I could teach on my own.

Lynn is the kindest, most patient and warmhearted, knowledgeable, and flexible person to work with. She has an exceptional understanding of dogs and their behavior. During our initial evaluation, Lynn gave us a few pointers and our dogs were behaving better. I could not ask for a better person to "train" me in training my dogs.

Before we met Anna, my wife and I were ready to surrender our dog Zoey to the Washington County Humane Society. Zoey destroyed many things in our home to include bedsheets, comforters, sofa cushions, draperies, shoes, shirts, a recliner, four leashes and three pet harnesses, and that's not the complete list. Zoey was unable to walk with anything other then a 15' cable. She exhibited intense stress, fear, and anxiety. It was so bad that she would pull, tug, and bite on my carhartt jacket. ( thanks for making such a durable jacket carhartt! Lol). It was literally a tug a war every time we tried to take her out for exercise. Anna, discovered, and taught us so many valuable things about Zoey's condition that we were able to come up with a plan of how to work with in Zoey's comfort levels and now Zoey walks with a leash not a cable! She walks right next to my leg with plenty of slack in the leash, she does not exhibit any signs of anxiety anymore. I believe It is realistic to say Anna saved Zoey, not only from going back to the humane society but due to Anna's experience, education, and knowledge with dog psychology, dog behavior, and her understanding of the breeds; how they act and react in social situations, all this gave Zoey a better more calm and fulfilling life. I call Anna the "Saint of Dogs", and I think she has earned this title in the way she genuinely cares for and about animals and how they interact and coexist with humans. I strongly recommend Anna to everyone in need of dog obedience training and behavior modification training for their four legged friends. Sincerely, James & Aly Krieser

The dog was taken from a backyard breeder and had several social and behavioral issues. Jennifer did great with a unique and difficult situation. Worked well with everyone and helped the dog feel comfortable. Made many steps forward with the puppy.

I couldn't be more pleased with the services provided by Cassidy! She is devoted to the care of animals. She is knowledgable and trustworthy. Gus, my Great Dane, loves to see her every time she comes over! I (and Gus) couldn't have been happier to have found her. Plus, she is very accommodating to my busy schedule.

We worked with Sarah for 6 weeks with our dog, Diggie, on his visitor anxiety at our home. She was quick to diagnosis Diggie's issues and came every week ready with strategies and tools to help us. Sarah was always professional and knowledgable, answering all our questions, while still making us feel very comfortable with what we needed to do and providing us with feedback. After the 6 weeks, Diggie has come a long way, mastering basic commands that will help his anxiety and a plan to continue his progress. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who loves their dogs, but not their behaviors.

In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She won’t let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dog’s individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. She’s reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. She’s genuine. She will make your dog shine.

Jennifer is a great trainer, very insightful in the ways that dogs think and feel. My dog and I have attended training classes before, but there were a few behaviors I wanted to work on. Working one on one and at home is great, as there are less distractions than working in a large class. In all a very positive experience for my dog and I; he gets rewarded for his good behavior and I'm less stressed because he's doing what I want him to do! Jennifer's positive reenforcement methods are easy to learn and work great!

Mary has watched our two dogs Dakota and Tucker numerous times and has stayed with them overnight. Mary has always been extremely reliable and enjoyed watching our dogs; she is very knowledgeable when it comes to animals behaviors. I totally trust Mary with our dogs and I highly recommend her to watch your animals. Mary is also always punctual and very communicative to let us know how our dogs behaved while we were away. Our older dog Dakota also has a mean streak every now and then that Mary knew how to handle and was extremely patient with Dakota for which our family is thankful.

I would love to help assist fellow dog owners to bridge that gap between master and pack member at an affordable price. To own and care for a dog is already expensive enough, so paying for a professional trainer is often discouraging and can lead to many outcomes including negative behavior in both dog and human, neglect, abandonment, stress in both dog and human etc. My goal is to eliminate anything blocking the natural connection between you and your canine companion.
