“Thank you so much for training our dog Scotch. Andrew and Caroline are very knowledgeable and caring dog trainers and they love what they do. They treat your dog as if it was their own.
If you are looking to get your dog trained the proper way, look no further. We highly recommend them!“
“Thanks, Andrew and Caroline. You guys did an excellent job. What a difference you’ve made. For those of you who are looking to have your pups professionally trained, I highly recommend them. They’re very caring, very knowledgeable, and very professional. It’s really worth it.
Thanks again, Andrew and Caroline! You’re the best!“
“I cannot believe how much of a change Otis has made since boot camp. Andrew and Caroline did a fabulous job! Otis no longer drags us on walks and acts like a crazy dog. Thanks so much Andrew and Caroline!“
“Peele was reactive on leash and now can walk off leash and not even be bothered by other dogs. We are amazed at the results. Andrew was very communicative throughout the process and sent videos and pictures! We are excited to have our other dog Lola (who will be more of a challenge) start next week!! Definitely worth it!!“
