I went to Dog School 101 because of the reviews I read. I must say everything I read was true. I had a brand new puppy after having a previous dog for 15 years. My puppy was rambunctious, skittish of other dogs and people, however after a beginner class with Sandy. She taught me skills to help me and understand him as a puppy. She was very honest in saying it takes years to train your dogs but that we needed to be diligent in practicing the skills she taught us. My puppy also goes to doggie daycare at Dog School 101 and is so excited when he recognizes the parking lot. Sandy knows each dog by his/her name like a school teacher. They take such wonderful care of him and treat him as their own. I would highly recommend Dog School 101 to anyone who want skills to train their puppy or dog or need a wonderful day care.

Dog School 101 is absolutely amazing for both daycare and training. Sandy takes the time to work with each dog in daycare, introducing them to other dogs slowly and making sure all the "children" are comfortable and confident in their play groups! We also just finished beginner obedience training, and we learned so much about our pup from Sandy's decades of experience, as well as her observations from working with our dog in particular. We look forward to using the other services and participating in other classes with Dog School 101!

Sandy is the best!! My dog looks forward to going to daycare every week. Miss Sandy cares so much about the fur babies. I also took my dog to the beginner obedience class and let me tell you. There is major improvement from how my dog was in the beginning of the class to the end. I’ve learned to much from Miss Sandy on how to better understand my dog and learning to be patient when it comes to training. I highly recommend taking your dog to Dog School 101! Sandy and her staff want to get to know you and fur baby on a personal level and they do a great job with their services.

Sandy goes over and above for the fur kids that come over there for either day care &/or boarding. Her dog training methods are awesome and she always make herself available for advices. Love this place & I would highly recommend the place .

Sandy will talk your ear off but it's because she loves you and your dog, they are great here and take care of the dogs as if they were all their own. We love Sandy and the crew of wonderful women that work here.

I absolutely love Sandy and her staff. My pup loves his time there during day school. Sandy is a bit eccentric, but I think it makes her more fun and unique. I like that they are personable and remember things about you and your pup. I also love that she has pools out for the dogs to play in. They need it for these Georgia summers! We just started the beginners training course and so far I'm very satisfied! Sandy helps you understand your pup better and how to command them. Knowing how to interact with your dog correctly helps you both build a better relationship. The money is definitely worth it!!

The team at Dog School 101 is amazing! We are first time dog owners and Sandy has been an invaluable and encouraging resource.Our puppy runs into Day Care in the morning with her tail wagging and reluctantly and tiredly leaves when we come to pick her up in the evening. We also took Sandy’s Beginner Obedience class where we learned so many helpful techniques that resulted in a more socialized and better behaved pup.

Very good training classes for me and my dog! Like school, important to do the homework they provide to get the most out of the classes.

We booked to board our dog here and owner cancelled last minute because our dog is a challenge, which she was well aware of. It left us in a bind and she lost our business.

I regret bringing my dog here. This place accepts too many animals to just have two people running the show. My dogs fur was DISGUSTING after one play day and nobody could tell me why. My dog didn't eat the food that I provided and nobody notified me. My dog had a scraped nose and was bleeding when I picked him up and I was told that "usually happens to them when they are puppies" which made zero sense. I know a lot of people like this place but just from the way it smells when you would in I would stay away. Also $55 for a temperament test ? I contacted several other day cares and the test is free, I guess they charge so much because they know many people won't come back. I would suggest they get cameras so pet parents can keep tabs on their pets unless they have something to hide of course....

Sandy is amazing. If there is ever anyone you want to take care of your dogs, she is it.

There's honestly nobody better in this business than Sandy! She treats your dog like her own child and my wife and I can drop her off for daycare and know that she's well taken care of and is having a great time. Our dog has separation and storm anxiety and Sandy has helped us to figure out ways to help her to cope with these. She is a straight-shooter when it comes to the children (dogs). We also did Sandy's basic obedience class and it was well worth the money spent and gave us a great baseline to continue her training; we are looking at doing her agility course in the fall as well! If you want someone who will genuinely care about your dog, bring her to see Sandy!

These people will know your dogs better than they know you (which is how I think it should be since they're watching them all day and not you)! Friendly staff. My dog always wants to go back, so that must be a good sign.

I love Sandy and her staff. Luca is so much happier when he spends his day at doggie day care. I would recommend this facility to anyone who works and has to leave their furbaby home during the day.

I've had nothing but great experiences with Sandy and her staff! Koa has gone through the obedience classes, doggie day care, and boarding and I must say everything has been wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff! Pricing isn't too bad either for daycare and boarding!!

The staff here loves my dog and they each know her personality and her quirks. My dog has serious separation anxiety, except here. From her 4th visit... she headed off with the staff without looking back. That doesn't happen anywhere else. Also, buying daycare days in bulk makes it cheaper than anywhere else I've seen. Dog school 101 is not the most convenient location for me based on my home and my work. There are 4 other doggie daycare places that make more sense geographically. But this is the place where I know that my dog is cared for and is happy, and that is worth a little extra driving.

Sandy is the best! She is the biggest dog lover you will ever meet. My pup always looked forward to her stay at the dog school.

Sandy's place is amazing! She is a natural with the puppies, and her training speaks for itself. She personally make sure that every animal in her facility is in the proper group happy and well taken care of. Thank you Sandy for all that you do!

I don't trust my dog with anyone but Sandy and the folks at Dog School 101. My dog used to be frightened to go in, but now she sprints to the door when we get there. Sandy grooms my dog, who also plays in Tiny Town at the day care. I also leave my dog with Sandy when I go out of town. She's the best!
