Here's a picture of Miss Kona on her way to A+ Dog Training's FREE July Pack Walk. She loves the monthly walks!

love them too; because they have been a huge help with Kona's doggy social skills.

When we first started going on the pack walks, Kona barked so much that we had to stay at the far end of the pack. Now she's in the middle of the pack or sometimes the front of the pack, not barking just walking calming & confidently with all the other dogs. It's so much fun!

Ragnar did absolutely amazing on our trip thanks to  A+ Dog Training! Tom's guidance helped us be great pup parents and helped Ragnar follow our commands while away from home and not in his own element! He also made some new friends along the trip!

I want to say thank you for helping me train Dexter.  Dexter wanted me to say thank you too!  He loves all the walks at night.  Because of your help I finally enjoy walking my dog.  I can't forget that he is a dog and not a baby!  Well...in the past he was a big baby in my eyes.  My family and I are so grateful for a respectful, nice and helpful trainer.  Your work is definitely A+.  I get why it's called "A+ Dog Training!"  THank you again for helping me.  I can't thank you enough.  Not only did you train Dexter you also trained me!  I am so excited to go to all your dog walks!  Dexter will be having so much fun!  I would totally tell everyone to buy a dog and have you train them.  LOL  Thank you for having the patience with me and my dog.  One last time, thank you so much Mr. Thomas for helping me train my dog.

A+ Dog Training worked with my son and I to get our two, two year old German Shepards to listen and obey our commands. It was a very positive experience and worth the investment.

Highly recommend A+ dog training to anyone that is wanting their dog to be trained right. Tom has numerous years of training under his belt as he used to be a military K9 trainer. This is so much more than just your average obedience training. This is training that is catered to your lifestyle so that you are able to have your loved pet be a part of all family activities. There really is a huge difference.

Tom and Gigi listen to your needs and can work on general issues that any dog has, to specific issues that you may need within your family. They are always professional, always reliable and respond back to you for issues you may be having immediately. They also put on fun puppy socials, community pack walks and really go above and beyond!! Highly highly recommend!

Great training for our puppy and for us! We’re Life Time clients and continue to attend training classes as our schedule permits to keep us all refreshed on proper obedience and expectations. We used their Board & Train option and were very glad we did! Two thumbs & one paw ???? up!
