    Brian was great. When he contacted me via the telephone he spent a half hour asking me all kinds of questions about my dog and her behavior. As soon as we met Brian, he immediately assessed my dog. He got her!!! My daughter and I spent approximately an hour and a half learning new techniques for controlling our dog. It's been about a month since we had our training. I can honestly say that with what we learned from Brian, we are both more confident when walking a dog. I would definitely use him again and refer him to anyone who needs a dog trainer.

    Michelle was awesome! She came to our house to give us pointers on how to better handle our two new rescues. We're following her pointers and things are getting better. I highly recommend Michelle! Don't hesitate, just call her.

    Michelle met with our 1 year old dog and me 3 times to work on manners.  She was amazing - lots of good tips even about things that we weren't focusing on.  She was also very good about sending follow up messages where the things we had talked about were written down so we can refer back.  We saw positive changes after each visit, and things keep getting better.  Now I have the tools I need to continue the work.  Thanks Michelle!

    We found Mike (Hidden Fence, INC.) on Angies List and contacted him.
    We called him and had a quick conversation.  He immediately set up an appointment with us and came to our home.   While here he spent a good amount of time with us.  Mike explained everything, walked the property, answered all over questions, met our dog, and just really made us feel very comfortable that this would work with our pet.  There was no pressure from Mike trying to sell to us and no money needed for deposit.
    We called Mike within the next couple days to move forward.  Mike covers everything and schedules Ms Utility to mark your yard prior to him digging.  
    Mike is a one man show, works quickly and does great work.    He had our yard installed within a few hours and then it was time to train the dog.  I was really impressed with Mike and his patience.  Our dog caught on quickly and Mike spent plenty of time with us and our pet.   Mike trained the dog on the entire property.   Of course, its highly recommended that a few of the family members are there to help in the training because it teaches you a lot as well.  
    So after a month plus of having the system we LOVE IT!  We keep saying it is the best money we have spent on our home.  Our dog loves it to.  She loves to be able to roam the yard and has not tried to escape once.
    Mike has been great with follow up.  
    Let me just say, Mike is so easy to work with and really knows his business.  We highly recommend him!
    If you are thinking about a Hidden Fence.  Go with Mike!  You will be very happy and so will your Dog.

    When I first spoke with Pam, the owner, she was terrific. She spent a lot of time on the phone asking questions and providing advice. I am using her methods and see results.

    I have been at my wits end trying to get Charly to respond to anything. After trying Pam's suggestions he actually recognizes my existence. A suggestion of Pam's was to enroll in a beginning training class which I have done but I was going to have to wait a month to start because a class just started and it was full. So I enrolled for a private lesson to learn some methods face to face. Vicki, the trainer, was awesome. Very enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. She was at the training site early and stayed a little beyond the end of the class. I have been using her methods, same as Pam's but I got to see her use them first hand, and Charly is doing better. Vicki gave me tips on treats, food, getting Charly's attention (name game), and numerous other helpful tips.

    Over all, my experience with All About Dogs, Inc has been fantastic and would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

    It went really well!  My wife and I felt a lot more confident about being the alpha in our home.  We also felt  a lot more hopeful that our Dachshund's behavioral issues will resolve over time now that we know a more effective way to correct him and to be his leader.  Brian explained very well, providing examples of previous jobs or of his own dogs.  We felt he was very easy to talk to and open up to.
    About a week later, Brian called to follow up with us.  He made it clear that we can give him a call anytime if we have any other questions or concerns, which we will definitely do if the need arises.

    We contacted David for assistance with several issues our puppy was having - walking/heeling with us, stay, as well as some unique issues such as a fear of vacuums and hairdryers! David's calm demeanor and understanding of dogs was just what we needed. David's approach is very simple and straightforward and his explanations and background information regarding canine behavior was easy to understand and adopt. He was very patient with us and encouraged our sons (ages 7 & 10) to participate in as much of the session as their attention warranted.

    David spent over 4 hours with us and our puppy addressing every issue we had. Further, he has followed up with us weekly, via email, to check on our progress. David said that he will always be there to answer questions for us and is so responsive. We couldn't be happier with David's services and have recommended him several times since our training session. He is truly the "dog whisperer" of the DC area.

    He loaded my horse for me and stayed while she had surgery. He helped with anything I asked him to and didn't but in when I didn't.
