SUCCESS STORIES

Find out why others love us!
Most incredible staff and owners. Terrific results wouldn't trust my fur babies to anyone else. They have great skills and are passionate about what they do. Love them.
The reason we contacted Krystal so many years ago was the anxiety that Snickers gave me every morning when I faced her.  It was as if she was in charge and I had no control. I thought, "What mess would I have to clean up, what would she chew on and who would she bite."  Now I have all the tools needed to be confident and in charge and she is the best behaved member of the family!
I hired Krystal to help us train our yellow Labrador Retriever named Kelsey. Krystal is the ultimate professional, she is very personable and has become a family friend. The results truly are amazing and we are able to truly enjoy our dog now and all of our friends and family are amazed that the difference before and after. We hired her to watch our dog while we went on vacation and you could clearly see how happy Kelsey was to stay with her. A+++ Kelsey now has her Canine Good Citizen Award!

Judy, a blind and deaf Great Dane

Katelyn was so afraid of what Judy might do.  Not only was she a huge Great Dane, but she was BLIND and DEAF!  She could tell her to calm down.  She couldn’t show her everything was okay.  Katelyn was told by a previous dog trainer that there wasn’t much that could be done for Judy.  Judy was fearful of people and other dogs and had even gotten into two fights with other dogs.  She had even snapped at a little girl. Here’s what Katelyn has to say about working with us and how Judy is now!

Mickey and Luna, Pit Bulls

Meet Mickey and Luna. They are Pit Bull siblings and actually got into a fight with each other the day before their training began.  They had serious issues, not only with each other, but other dogs.  It was so bad they couldn’t be walked, not even one at a time. When we arrived for their first lesson, they were extremely stressed, shaking, and had a few scabs each from their previous fight, just days before.  After six weeks they had transformed into well-mannered citizens.  To celebrate we went on a walk with Erika and her daughter Lauren.  We walked past several barking dogs and neither pittie got even mildly excited. Score!  If you think your dog can’t change, think again and give us a call. Here’s a before and after video to see for yourself the difference their training made.

Truman, Weimaraner

Meet Truman.  He was very excitable Weimaraner with aggression tendencies towards other dogs and cats.  His owners were concerned because they couldn’t control him.  They also feared him around small children because he was so excitable.  After his two week Muttessori Boarding School, Truman was a well behaved, CALM, member of society. Check out this short clip to see his transformation.

Southie, Pit Bull Mix

Meet Southie.  He is a 1.5 year old Pit Bull Mix. He was found wandering around the neighborhood.  In fact, he followed, Ken, his now owner, home and walked him from his car to his front door.  Ken and his family instantly fell in love.  When no one claimed Southie, Ken and his family knew he was meant to stay.  But Southie had a few behaviors that had Ken concerned.  He would lunge aggressively at other dogs on walks and would especially berserk over cats.  If they would keep the leash on him at home he would be an angel, but as soon as it came off he would steal and chew toys, stuffed animals, shoes and play too roughly.  Check out his before and after video.

Snickers, Australian Cattle Dog

Snickers off leash with other dogs
“Snickers was trained by Krystal and when she came back she was so well behaved!  It was amazing.  My role was just to reinforce what Krystal had reiterated. I would recommend the board and train to anyone and then you can see for yourself how much your dog can learn!  The reason we contacted Krystal so many years ago was the anxiety that Snickers gave me every morning when I faced her.  It was as if she was in charge and I had no control. I thought, “What mess would I have to clean up, what would she chew on and who would she bite.” Now I have all the tools needed to be confident and in charge and she is the best behaved member of the family! Snickers now attends a monthly social with Krystal’s clients and their dogs.  We meet at a Tractor Supply or Pet Smart with our dogs and she takes them through a social training.  I’ve attended my first one and it was super!  I never in a million years thought I could take Snickers into a store with other dogs, let alone live across the street from one that she would get a long with.”    -Betsy Magner

Buster, Chocolate Lab

Buster was a 1.5 year old crazily rambuncious chocolate lab.  When we first came to train with Buster and Karla, Buster wouldn’t come, he was mouthy, couldn’t stay in the yard, had constant anxiety, no one wanted to babysit him (sad but true haha) and Karla was beyond frustrated. After his training he comes when called, isn’t mouthy, stays in the yard, listens to his “pack leaders”, people are willing to babysit him, he has learned to self soothe himself, and has finally realized he isn’t the pack leader anymore!

Hobbs and Agatha, Dogue de Bordeaux

Augusto had taken Hobbs, a Dogue de Bordeaux (or French Mastiff) to three different trainers and was told that Hobbs was un-trainable.  He met Krystal at a Pet Expo and saw how well behaved her Neapolitan Mastiff, Morgyn, was.  Hobbs wasn’t allowed in the house because he was so big and out of control they were afraid he would injure their three year old daughter.  After THREE lessons, Hobbs was so well behaved he was allowed in the house and was the best dog in the family, although don’t tell the other dogs.  Hobbs would listen to every one in the family (even their three year old) would stay off the furniture, and was no longer a menace to the house.  Augusto and his family were so impressed they immediately enlisted Krystal to train their other Dogue de Bordeaux, Agatha!

Blitz, Yorkshire Terrier

Have you ever been concerned that your dog might be swept away by a bird of prey?  Blitz owners were and for good reason!  Blitz was a 5 lb Yorkshire Terrier.  They needed him to stop having accidents all over the house and to only go on a potty pad when indoors.  They also needed a solid “come” command so if they spotted a Hawk they could quickly call Blitz back to safety. Blitz would bark at everything: noises, guests, and golfers (they lived on a golf course).  He would even bark when they would talk on their phone!  After a few weeks of training, Blitz would come when called, would only go on the potty pad, and no longer barked at anything and everything he heard. “Very happy with Blitz’ training! And ours as well! You guys are great!”-Becky

Buddy, Black Lab

When Buddy first started he was 100% puppy! He was goofy, full of energy, couldn’t focus, and chewed everything in site. This included Alex (who you see in the picture, he is 9). Buddy was convinced Alex was a chew toy. Buddy has officially graduated and now obeys Alex when he gives him commands. HUGE improvements.
