Don't take our word for it...


I love the variety of activities for puppies. My Amber had such a wonderful time and LEARNED so much in just a few days.

Tyler & Trevor Sandberg

Kathy Santo is fantastic, she has made such incredible progress with my dog who has major behavioral issues. She really learns your dog and applies what works best for your dog! I recommend her services to everyone.

Kimberly Carroll

Always learn something new! Great group that makes life better for dogs by making us better and more educated owners!

Gloria McCartney

Wonderful staff - hands down! I don't think I would have survived puppy stage (or teenage stage or adult stage) without them. Cody loves them too!

Lynn Ballai

She loves my dogs as much as she loves her family and that makes me feel very comfortable leaving my dogs with her.

Jaci Vanderwall

Realistic training, with the "why" behind the method. My dog is 10 months old and everyone talks about how well behaved she is both at home an in public.

CJ Hill

There aren't enough stars! Awesome, caring, great results! The whole team is invested in your success. No other trainer compares.
