"We picked up a sad 2-year old dog from the shelter and introduced him to our small pack at home. He had been a stray and was exhibiting dominant actions against" our other dogs and picking a few fights. We called
to come out to our house and work with us and him. We are about an hour north of
, but she had no qualms about driving out to our house. She explained her techniques and what she wanted to attain, while also explaining why our new dog was doing the things he was doing. Within the span of an hour she had him dramatically calmer and more responsive to our requests. She also did a wonderful job of correcting some of our bad habits which served only to confuse or exacerbate the issues. Three months later, we have elected to send Ranger to "camp" at the
facility. He will spend a couple of weeks there, working directly with
to learn voice and hand commands and, hopefully, how to interact nicely with strange dogs. We have checked in on him a few times and are highly pleased with his progress.
's training is
to the work performed by
and other natural approaches. She doesn't use treats or violence to obtain results and we love this about her!

is top notch. He loves dogs, he understands dogs, he can read dogs, and he can read the owners! What you get out of your dog is so much about" what you put into them. The more you put into them, the happier you and they are, and your relationship can be one of the best you ever have. His training style is reward and consequences, similar to what a good parent would be. Your pup does something good = reward. They don't....a small tug on the training collar. They want to please....they need to learn what you want them to do to please you, and you need to learn how to show them what you need. A happy dog is a dog that understands that they are NOT the alpha. A happy owner is one that knows how to be the alpha. If you can find this spot, you can have a dog that is well adjusted and lives a happy content life while bringing you tons of joy. He is not for everyone. He requires you use a training (prong) collar. I appreciate that not everyone believes in them, but if you know how to use them they are very effective.....and if you use them correctly, they do not hurt the dog. I have used them on 4 of my GSDs, and once you settle in, it is very similar to a harness on a horse. They let the dog know which direction you are going, and what you want them to do. He is a strong trainer with the people. He has no patience for handlers that say "my dog won't do it". The reason he is this way is people that get dogs that are not willing to put the time into training them tend to give them up because they are a "bad dog". They are not....they have a bad handler. It kills him that 11.5 million dogs are euthanized every year. 50% of dogs that are adopted, are euthanized. 3 milllion dogs a year that are under 1 year old have their owners give up on them. If you get a dog, you are responsible for training them....and it takes time and commitment. No excuses. If you can handle this truth, he will teach you how to have a well adjusted dog. I have not one, but two GSDS pups that are 6 months old. I can take them anywhere......and people always comment on how well behaved they are. I am very proud of our work so far....and can't wait to see how far
and I can take them!

is great! I love her style. She focuses on positive behavior training. She worked with my dogs on commands like, sit, stay, bed, off, come, find it, etc. We also worked on walking them.
My puppy was very young but still learned a lot. I plan on having her work with them again soon. She was very affordable ( we bought a package deal). Also she was very informative and provided some great information (such as where to buy harness and how to get a discount on my puppy's Spay).

I contacted her regarding our dog who had slowly become what seemed shy and/or aggressive after we moved. She asked a ton of questions to get to know my dog and myself prior to making any suggestions. She gave me a few tips over the phone and then suggested the free evaluation. From there we decided to do a few 1:1 sessions to help train US on how to handle what was not aggression, but actually anxiety!
We loved working with

so much, we signed up for the Basic Obedience class. All went phenomenal as expected and we plan on signing up for the intermediate class in the Spring. She is kind, intuitive, professional, experienced, extremely knowledgeable, and sincerely cares about you and your pup.
- Mollie E.

I contacted the provider about socialization and training classes for my 14 week old puppy. The provider's website indicates that the puppy classes are for dogs up to 5 months and that classes are limited to no more than 8 dogs. The provider was responsive during our email exchange and I decided to enroll in a class. I was under the impression this was a puppy class with socialization opportunities since this is the service that I contacted this provider for. The first class was an orientation session with no dogs and we completed paperwork. The second class was the first session with dogs and that is when I realized that the class size was more than 8 dogs and was a mixed class with adult dogs and adolescent dogs under 1 year old. All dogs in the class were also medium and large size breed dogs. Since there was a significant age/size difference between my 4 pound puppy and the other dogs, it resulted in my puppy and I having to be isolated in a gated off area. We were isolated in this area and my puppy had no other dogs with her to socialize with and I could neither hear what the provider was saying nor benefit from the training that was going on between the provider and the other dogs in the group. From my perspective, I paid money for my puppy and I to be isolated in a gate area by ourselves for an hour and we didn't learn anything. I feel very mislead as what I received is not the service I believed I was signing up for. I signed up for a puppy class but instead this turned out to be a mixed class with adult and adolescent dogs and no dogs that were age/size appropriate for my puppy. I signed up for what I thought was a small class limited to no more than 8 dogs but there were more than 8 dogs in the class. Finally, the logistics and circumstances result in no active learning on my part or my puppies part. I expressed my disappointment to the provider in person and a few days later followed up with an email further expressing my dissatisfaction with the situation. I asked for a refund but the provider refused. I am willing to pay the provider for the two sessions attended but requesting a prorated refund as the service provided is not as advertised to me. I haven't heard back from the provider regarding the prorated refund.

The salesperson was very professional, the installer was very good at his job, the owner missed a couple of appointments to train my dog, but we had nice conversations anyway..
- Elizabeth B.

He returned our first call after 4 days and told us he would be out later that wee to meet the dog. When he never came our called us to schedule. we have called him 3 times without a return call. This has been a 3 weeks process.
- Beau and Julie J.

I started taking classes because my dog would. Not. Listen. That has evolved into taking multiple classes because I actually LIKE my dog and she likes me. We want to do things together and there are many types of classes to take. Basic pet classes and puppy classes all the way through competition. I've had classes with all of the instructors at one point or another and like them all. Theyre all competent and are good teachers. Unlike other trainers, they don't train your dog FOR you. They teach you how to do it and the dog learns to listen to you. You play games with the dog so they think you (and learning) are fun. I recently got a new puppy and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. If I moved out of state I would still travel here for classes if it was possible. No complaints at ALL! The trainers are always reachable if you have questions or need advice. Your relationship with the instructor doesn't end when class ends.

came out on time, was very nice and professional and even stayed for an additional 30 minutes. Would definitely use their service. It does seem the method he was using at the time has caused my dog to stop jumping but additional work may be needed in the future.

The BEST!!!

The training session was well organized, fast paced, interesting, and fun for both dogs and handlers. In addition each dog and handler team received individualized instruction. The best instruction and training that I or my dogs have ever received has been out at
