Recent Review: Andrew and the entire team at The Canine Training Center are the best trainers we have ever been with! From day one they teach you how to think like your dog so that you understand their behavior and how the training methods work.  They were very patient and caring to our dog ? and to us!  We used CTC for group classes, board and train, and the Dog Fence (electric fence system).  Our dog had a very high prey drive so taking her on walks was a huge challenge.  She had escaped the house and yard on multiple occasions and generally was being a dominant personality.  Andrew and the CTC team totally turned her around! Group classes: We went to both levels of the group classes.  Level 1 uses only positive rewards.  The trainers really helped us understand how to get Tessa to trust us (she?s a rescue) and be comfortable.  They even had a few fun commands beyond simple obedience like training Tessa to close a door, turn on a light switch, or find our keys!  Level 2 is when they introduce corrections ? but not punishment ? and more difficult commands.  Again, Andrew remains very patient.  The corrections are never meant to hurt or scare your dog, just make them think. Board and Train: While we had been in the group classes, it was apparent that Tessa needed more work than we could do on our own given our schedules.  We were seriously considering if she could remain with us.  But Andrew was great!  He assured us Tessa?s behavior was completely manageable.  He understood our hesitance with using the e-collar (aka a ?shock? collar).  He explained his philosophy behind using the e-collar and ensured we only used a professionally rated device (not the kinds you get at the big box pet stores).  We decided to enroll Tessa in the 2 week board and train while we went away for Christmas.  This was the best decision we could have made!  When we brought her home she had the same personality but her behavior was a complete 180.  They provided great support in showing us how to maintain her progress at home. Dog Fence:  We got an electric fence because our fence was short enough that Tessa could jump it.  We had it installed before she went to board and train so she was trained on how to recognize the ?invisible? line while there.  All we had to do was transfer that knowledge to our yard.  Andrew came over and worked with us to ensure that Tessa believed the electric fence was a line she can?t cross.  It?s so great to be able to let her off leash! We honestly can?t express enough praise for CTC!  It has been a wonderful experience and we will certainly use them whenever we need more training!

Recent Review: This fence is wonderful!  We have a new German Shepherd puppy and wanted something more secure than an electric fence, which we had with our previous Shepherd.  We priced chain link fencing, which  was over twice the cost and, in our opinion, not at all attractive.  This fence is barely visible and blends well with the landscape. Now our dog has lots of room to run and we do not have to be concerned about her getting out of the yard.  We also hope that the fence will keep the deer out, which would be a big plus.  Additionally, it gives us the option of taking in rescue dogs should we choose to do that. Victor was very responsive and the job was done promptly after we signed the contract.  He also offered the great suggestion of extending the fence into a wooded area of our property beyond our yard which gives the dog more room and puts that portion of the fence completely out of sight.  His crew moved wood and trimmed back bushes at no additional cost. I highly recommend Pet Playgroundz to anyone seeking secure a yard for a pet at a very reasonable cost.

Recent Review: They were great. They have the best customer service you can imagine. Every time we need the simplest thing like a battery for the collar, they send it to us. If I need more protection for a pet, I would definitely call them again.

Recent Review: We cannot recommend Mike and his team more. From the first contact, Mike was responsive, knowledgable, patient and helpful. Mike answered all the questions we had, respected our desire to look at other options and never pressured us with our decision. He worked with us to set an install date that worked for our family. They were on time for the install date and held true to the timeframe they laid out. The best part was the way that Mike performed the initial training with our dogs. It was clear that Mike's main concern was for my dogs and their comfort with the training process. He took his time with us and and explained every step for us to clearly understand. Mike stayed until after last question we had was answered. He even called us the next day and the following week to check up on how the training was going and the dogs were doing. Overall, great product, great price, great service!

Recent Review: Overall I gave Premium a "B", which is good.  I would definitely recommend them for hardscaping services. Hardscaping = A Had a retaining wall and patio put in our backyard. The team arrived promptly every day and moved through the project quickly.  We are happy with the results. Price was reasonable. Project Manager = A The Premium project manager was responsive, came by almost every day to discuss the progress with me and ask and answer questions. Estimate process also went smoothly.  Very professional. Fence = A Looks good, went up fast, met specifications. Electric = C It took almost 2 months after the start of the project for the electric to be started/completed.  That delay and frustration was an F. I would ensure that timeline expectations are set when planning electrical work.  The electric subcontractor was not responsive to Premium, which was a concern.  The actual execution of the electrical work was an A: looks good, no problems. Landscaping = C The grading in the backyard was OK, still seeing puddling and not enough drainage. Took a while to get a team back out to finish up an area that turned into a pond. The sod was mixed, one row is green, the next yellow, so the treatment was the same, just hit or miss sod quality.  Follow up work to seed the areas of sod that died were supposed to be discounted, but still more than other companies.  Chose to do follow-up landscape work with another vendor.

Recent Review: I needed a particular fence where the dogs couldn't get out, because I had small dogs that could get through small areas, so they came in and installed the fence for me and even put an extra bar around the bottom that is usually put on the top, and that worked out really well. They fenced a big area that I had under my deck, so that my dogs would come out and be in that fenced area. I was really happy with them. I would use them again in the future if needed.

Recent Review: I highly recommend contacting Hidden Fence if you are considering a fence for you dog. Lester has obviously spent time understanding canine behavior and has built a product and training that emphasizes using an electric fence to support training and learned behavior. Other systems we researched rely on the shock system to provide the training. Lester spent only an hour installing our fence system and two hours training our dog and progressively increasing the "shock" power. Our dog learned the boundary of the fence on the lowest power. It is clear that Lester uses a system tailored specifically to each dog and not based on age, weight, or breed. We contacted Hidden Fence via the website and received a personalized email within a few hours setting up a phone conversation. Lester spent nearly an hour with me on the phone talking about the Hidden Fence product, services, pricing, and answering specific questions we had. Scheduling and installation was easy and straightforward. The price and service were delivered exactly as explained over the phone. We highly recommend contacting Lester at Hidden Fence if considering using this type of product.

This was the least painful process I have experienced in purchasing services. Mike was incredibly responsive from first indication of interest thru installation and training. His follow-up to see how my dog was adjusting was fantastic.
