"
was wonderful. Very professional. Clearly has lots of experience and has a process for this. Spent time in first session just getting" background and observing our environment. Gave us suggestions on some changes to the physical environment as well as some very
but effective tools for addressing issues. I've worked with a number of dog trainers (for this dog and previous dogs) and she is the best trainer we've worked with.

"All of the staff were so helpful and friendly. We consulted before starting our private lessons and felt confident that
could help our dog" with severe anxiety and fear aggressive behaviors. We met at his training center and worked on building our dog's confidence through various strategies ("placing" on different objects, being around confident dogs, accepting pets from different people)- we even went to Mounds Pet Food Warehouse to train! The facility is wonderful as it has indoor and outdoor space and we were able to use both areas. We would recommend
to anyone who needs positive, yet serious, training to help their dog overcome issues that prevent it from living a happy life (and owners learn lots as well).

We adopted a puppy from the Humane Society in March. She was tiny when we adopted her and since the shelter has no prior knowledge of her parents we didn't realize we had adopted a large breed puppy (DNA test- Lab/

was referred to us and we are extremely pleased with her services.

is professional and has quickly built a positive bond with us and our puppy. We have been working with
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
since April. She has even worked with the kids to help them with their issues with the pup.The
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
way of training works! Our puppy has gone from an out of control jumping, nipping, heel biting bundle of "what have we gotten ourselves into" to a well controlled pup. At 6 months she understands and performs all the basic commands including walking at heel on her leash. We could not have asked for a better partner to assist us with training. We especially appreciate that

is experienced as a dog behaviorist.

Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
-Josee clearly knows dogs, and follows the positive reinforcement method of dog training, which I agree with. One thing to note, although it's listed as puppy and beginner, our two dogs were the only ones in the class of about 10 that were over a year old. For puppies, I would HIGHLY recommend this class, but for older dogs who may have a few, shall we say, quirks, finding something more tailored to them might make sense. One of our dogs is a rescue from a puppy mill (meaning that she was breeding puppies, not that we rescued her as a puppy), and she's just not ever going to pick up training as quickly or easily as other dogs. That said,
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
-Josee did do a good job of coming over and making suggestions that fit our situation. Her tips were helpful, and in general, I think it was good for our dogs to socialize with other dogs and dog owners in a class situation. To be perfectly honest, I scheduled the training mostly for my husband, who was under the impression that training isn't necessary, and in that regard, I was very pleased with the outcome. Our mill girl still doesn't really get the basic commands, but our other girl picked them up pretty quickly.
I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone with a new puppy! For those in other situations, I might suggest contacting

They are all reliable, friendly, responsible, tolerant, helpful, and able to handle decisions. They are a great team, and the owner can handle all kinds of my eccentricities. No better pet care anywhere, even at a 24-hour animal hospital!

was AMAZING! She is so calm and so patient and great with the dogs. We have 3 dogs whose barking had become a problem. It got on my nerves and interrupted phone conversations with our clients. She had a great suggestion for stopping the barking and it worked perfectly the first time and ever since. The other issue we wanted to solve was their jumping on guests when they entered our house. we've made good progress on that, although we're not 100% there, largely because WE haven't practiced as much as we should. She also taught us a bunch of great "tricks" for exercising and working with them.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
has a great way with dogs. Many of the other possible trainers we talked with wanted to use shock collars and dominance techniques which we didn't want.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
understood that our boys are our family and we wanted them well treated. I highly recommend her and will continue to use her for "touch-up" training and techniques.

It went very well.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was prompt and knew what she was talking about. After we discussed my concerns-dog barking at strange dogs and people and concern re nipping-she observed my dog and came to the conclusion that he could probably be trained to stop inappropriate barking and no nipping. She gave me suggestions, and then modeled what I was to do. She then turned me loose, gave me her card, and told me to call if I had any problems or questions. There was no charge (evals are always free). I put her suggestions to use immediately and things have been going well.
I really liked that after the eval she thought I could handle the situation on my own and did not schedule unnecessary visits, and yet made me comfortable that I could call if I had problems or concerns. I was given the fee schedule during my first phone contact, and felt comfortable with the pricing.

Overall stay for my dogs went well. My two dogs stayed together in a large kennel and were fed and let out multiple times daily. The boys seemed happy when I picked them up!

If you care about getting the best care for your parrot, there is no better place than with
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked

We have used
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
as a Trainer and boarding kennel since
January 2014. We had an out of controlrescue Black Labrador mix. Maverick was
about 6-7 months old with no discipline when he arrived. Extremely strong and strong willed.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
had Maverick under control in less than three lessons. The lessons after that were for us to learn to control Maverick.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
does an excellent job training dogs as well as owners.
He also conducts refresher courses as Maverick stays with him during our trips away from home. When
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
picks
Maverick up for boarding, he is always excited to see
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and behaves impeccably no matter how long it has been between visits.

Having owned dogs for over 30 years we had never needed a trainer before.
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
came to our rescue
through a referral and we have never regretted using him. He sets the
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
up front with the dog in
it’s own territory. The dogs all seem to love him but know the limits.
Our three Pomeranians also received some training from
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, which greatly improved their behavior.
He comes to your home and trains you as he trains the dog. He is always early for appointments and gives
full attention during all lessons. He has a large number of techniques in his repertoire to get your dog to be a loving and well-behaved member of the family.
As recently as
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
18, 2015 Maverick returned home after a week with
Chapel Hill Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
boarding him. As usual he returned home as his happy (now well behaved) self.
I could not recommend a better dog trainer.
