I also wanted to give you an exciting update about spike. We put him in boarding for a day at Taylor Vet to attend Eduardo's graduation this past Friday and he was able to be muzzle free his whole stay without showing any signs of aggression towards the staff! They said he was very friendly and behaved well. It brought me to tears hearing that news from them, we thank you for all your help in making this progress possible


I just wanted to let you know that I took Redy on his first off-leash, walk in the orchard and along the canal and he was amazing. I used my whistle once to bring him back and then he stayed with me the rest of the time. Again thank you so much.


I just got to Stan State, and she got out and is walking with me all around—1st time since 2022.


Thank you Tom & Gigi for working with us & Jolie.  it's definitely a learning experience and from the get-go (even before we started training with you), you gave us extremely helpful advice.  Consistency is key and with time we all will get there!  Very appreciative of your support, suggestions, & guidance!


Thank you for all the help in training us and Cinder 🙂 it's so fun to have a well behaved dog we can take places and enjoy having around! We are so thankful for A+ Dog Training!


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!


Making progress.

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.
