I brought my dog Frida for training before and now I bring her for boarding. Compared to other facilities, Dog Training Now sends my dog home each night with a trainer. I receive daily updates and photos of Frida, my Doberman. She is on …

From the first day of training I noticed an amazing transformation in how Quincy acted on the leash. He had been uncontrollable but in one day he became obedient and responsive, I cannot stress how highly I recommend this facility.

I had a remarkable experience with DTN. I am thrilled with the skills my dog Nala learned throughout her time in the 10-day program. We went from uncontrollable and frustrated to well-mannered and relieved in a matter of days. Trainer Nick was great to work with- he always encouraged questions and was supportive and patient with my dog and I as we learned to obey and administer the new commands each day. He ensured I felt well prepared to manage my energetic puppy going forward. I would absolutely recommend DTN to any dog parent struggling with training!

Everyone there is committed to consistency, professionalism, and they know their trade very well. We went through the full off leash training and that is really where it makes the difference. They are booked up, so if you just got a puppy, you better make your reservation now because you may have to wait. Whomever ate all the muffins I brought, and you know who you are, next time give Will a chance to get one.... Lets hope you don't turn into a muffin. Thanks DTN!!!!

BOCCE, my 83 pound bulldog was loved by Now employees. I highly recommend this place for training. I got her when she was 2 1/2 years and never trained. She has calmed down and behaves with commands. Thx

I highly recommend Dog Training Now to anyone looking for an obedience training program! My 2 year old lab/golden mix has always been a good dog but obedience was hit or miss. Dog Training Now taught him so much and made him more confident! The day after he graduated, he stayed in a down stay position for 10 minutes while my daughter was eating and flinging yogurt all over the floor and he only needed one reminder to stay put! Prior to his 2 week training, he would have been right up in her face trying to lick yogurt off her hands! The trainers are also so great and you can tell they are really passionate about the work they are doing!

Horrible ; previously enrolled a puppy that never ended up going but paid and they still go there money for the week said they lost spots for other customers but sure took the money and never called to see if pup was still coming to class called to enroll another one of my pets to join day camp and told me I should go somewhere else that this one wasn’t a good fit . And they really care about animals right! Very Unprofessional

Staff here are very professional. My puppy loves it here. His tail waggles every time we are in the front of the school and one of the staff comes and gets him! Highly recommend. Make sure you book in advance because they do get booked out very quickly. They have FB and Instagram and post often so you can see what your pup is up too. Thank you dog training now team!

We had a great experience with Dog Training Now both with the puppy training and the two week training. Maisey went from crazy to being a good dog that no longer jumps on people, comes when called, waits at doors, and stays in place when asked. She was very happy to be there with all the trainers loving on her. I highly recommend DTN!

Our dog Mae attended the 2 week training program at Dog Training now. We had a wonderful experience. The staff were all kind and took the time to really teach us how to work with Mae. She came home with new skills thanks to their training. I would recommend them to anyone with a new pup... new or old!

Amazing. Has been a life changer for both myself and my dogs! They not only do a fantastic job but are honest and don't "up sell." My dog had basic training (somewhere else, years before, that I had not kept up on) and during evaluation …

Amazing service. And works. I was only looking for a basic training but the progress is obvious. My dog Baxter learned so much. I’m extremely happy.

The folks here are fantastic and do a lot with the dogs. Yadi has loved it here I just wish they allowed doggy daycare past 16 weeks! Great staff, very friendly and always willing to answer questions! Highly recommend!

We are so pleased with Dog Training Now and the wonderful trainers! As first time puppy owners, they taught us a lot about how to handle our puppy, how to get the desired results and how to correct unwanted behaviors. A special thank you to Will and Nick for their hard work with Leo. We look forward to continuing with the refresher classes to keep up with Leo’s new skills.

Oh boy Ollie loves DTN. He spent a couple boarding nights and his "Off" command has improved. We really like boarding here as your pup goes home with a staff member and not stuck in a lonely kennel all night.

We had a great experience with our puppy receiving his training and then returning for day camps and boarding. Friendly and professional staff who loved our dog as much as we do! Highly recommend!

Couldn't ask for more from this place. Our pup Seneca went through puppy daycare, the 20 day offleash program, and then later a weekend board and train while we were out of town. His first time here we he was a crazy ball of energy and teeth and we jokingly told the trainers that he is their problem now. Through his experience with DTN he has become significantly more confident, socialized, and well behaved dog who gets excited and runs to the door whenever we tell him we are going to school. The trainers here are professional, friendly, and full of enthusiasm and had no problem spending additional time discussing tips and tricks to continue his training at home. We would highly recommend DTN to anyone with a new puppy or dog in need of obedience training and are planning on making many trips back here for grad lessons.

My dog Koda has gone to both the Puppy Day Camp and 10-Day Obedience Training at Dog Training Now, and I have definitely seen a huge difference in him! Koda is a much better listener now, and walking him is so much easier. The trainers here are very knowledgeable, and I can tell they care about both the dogs and their owners. Koda was so excited to come to training everyday, and I could tell he felt safe and comfortable at DTN. I would definitely recommend DTN for anyone that needs a reliable and effective place to train their dogs!

My dog enjoyed the training very much. She was always happy to go there. Now she’s a very calm and obedient dog. Thank you Nick, Will and Ashley!!!

We had our dog here for two weeks to board and train. We are now able to take our dog on walks without the constant leash pulling. She will also wait before leaving our house until given the "lets go" command to go outside. We are happy with the results. We looked forward to receiving the daily updates and pictures each day. Allison was very helpful and thorough in reviewing the training when we picked her up.

Wonderful experience! My dog started with the puppy socialization classes, took a break and continued with the 10 day basic obedience classes. Best investment ever as he is at ease with other dogs, comfortable in new situations, learned basic commands and went in happily every day. An added bonus is that because we started him at 8 weeks in the car a little each day he became used to car rides and with the back and forth to class each day he is now calm and relaxed even on trips of up to several hours. Each staff member was competent and caring. Nick seemed to develop a special nbond with our dog. Don't hesitate to take the time and spend the money to make your dog at ease in the world for the rest of his life. It's worth it!

I wasn't quite sure what to expect of the program but I knew my 11 month pup Banksy needed some sense of discipline! The staff at DTN were so friendly and welcoming and it's obvious they really enjoy what they're doing. Banksy learned so much straight off the bat. Walking her has become far more enjoyable and she actually listens! Thank you guys so much :)

Buddy had his first week of Puppy day camp and I am beyond happy with the program. The staff is very friendly. You can tell how much they love what they do. I am definitely going to keep a Buddy in training there.

Our golden retriever named Corby worked with the amazing, kind, informational, and effective trainer Allison for the 26 day board and train program (along with all the other friendly and helpful staff too!). When we went to pick him up and got a thorough overview and demonstration of all he had learned, I was in awe and so proud. I love that we know exactly what to do with him to keep him progressing into the wonderful dog we know he can be (aka not eating grass and sticks and jumping/mouthing from excitement all the time!). Goldens take time, but Allison and Dog Training Now sure gave us a great jump start and the confidence that we know what to do moving forward. We can’t wait to bring him back for the grad refresher classes soon!

Our dog Summer completed a board and training program and also goes in for refresher courses. The staff is very professional, friendly and supportive. They also give guidance for parents to continue training at home. I would recommend their program for any dog owner!
