Jim is amazing and has helped me with a total of 3 dogs now throughout the years with a wide range of issues. His experience and communication during training is great and he really cares. He helps YOU train your dog but also helps you to understand them/why they do what they do. He’s really the best and has helped so many animals (mine and others I know). I’m so happy I was referred to him years ago.

I have seen such excellent results in the behavior of my 1 year old female Rottweiler, Alibi, since working with Jim from Great Dog! In Home Dog Training. After having my dog a few months, I began to notice undesirable behaviors that I wanted to work on with a professional trainer. I listed these behaviors and weighed the options of a group class vs. in home training. Jim focuses on positive reinforcement training which is very appealing to me. Jim has a very reasonable starter package of 3 lessons. He came out for an evaluation of Alibi first. Since starting her lessons, my dog has developed significantly and my ability to control her has increased as well. After working with Jim, you can tell he has a genuine passion for what he does and that he basically understands and loves dogs. My Rottie loves him too. I would highly recommend Jim O’Neil at Great Dog! I have not been disappointed with my choice. His responses to emails are very prompt.

Several years ago we used Jim to help Suka get more comfortable with strangers so it was a no-brainer to call him when we decided to work with our new puppy on barking issues. Scheduling an appointment was quick and easy and in just one …

Jim was more than helpful when it came to training our two pups. Just after one session we were able to implement a lot of the tips and tricks he recommended for our situation. We noticed a huge improvement over the next few weeks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We can't thank you enough Jim for teaching us how to work with 2 out of control puppies. We still have our work cut out for us, our fault for getting a bit lax with training but now we know how to get back to it so we're all in a good place. Before you came to work with us we didn't think it would be possible, but now we're sure it will be.

Jim is a wonderful and calm teacher for both the humans and the dogs. He works with each family on an individual basis and provides ideas and exercises that work with your dog. He doesn't have pre-defined list of solutions. His ideas are …

I contacted Jim O'Neill to help me with my newly adopted dog's separation anxiety. He was very easy to get in touch with and scheduling was painless. Jim is patient, thorough, knowledgeable and very supportive. He does positive …

Jim is professional and knowledgable. He explains the 'science' and reasoning behind the strategies and techniques that he uses which makes the training experience not only effective but interesting. With his expertise and patience, we were able to accomplish the goals we set with Jim each session. In addition, Jim follows-up each session, with a summary e-mail. Great K9 Training was just that- great.

Xena and I came to Jim with two primary objectives: (1) for me to learn how to be a better dog parent and help Xena work through her frustrations, and (2) for Xena to learn some new skills that would allow her to have a more happy and fulfilling life. Jim discussed these goals with me during our evaluation and developed a training plan to help us meet our goals. During the evaluation, Jim covered a wide range of topics in an effort to get to know as much about me and Xena as possible, and welcomed any questions that I had for him. He helped me to understand that even though I recognize Xena’s signals, I may not be communicating that to her. Following each training session, Jim provided me with a summary of what we worked on that day and some ideas for how we may practice our new skills during the week. Moreover, Jim encouraged my parents and boyfriend to attend some sessions with us, as they are also a big part of Xena’s life, and as such they have an important role to play in helping Xena to maintain her new skills. For me and Xena, this holistic approach to training was fundamental to establishing consistency in her training. Jim is a wonderfully smart and patient trainer, and I am so glad that Xena and I had the opportunity to work with him. The training was as much for me as it was for Xena; we both gained confidence and learned new things, and are just happier overall. I am a foster parent for rescue dogs and am so excited to apply these skills with the dogs that I work with. Xena has always been a wonderful foster sister, and now she will be an even better role model! Thank you Jim!

Jim worked with two of our dogs, Ollie and Bo, and was incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. He answered every question that we had and was kind and patient the whole time. Jim incorporated the whole family in the training that focused on safety and positive reinforcement. I would absolutely recommend Great Dog K9 Training!

Jim is by far the best dog trainer we have worked with and I have recommended him to my friends and family looking for a trainer in the area.  Before Jim, we worked with a few trainers and none had the calm energy that he did.  Jim worked with my wife and I to develop a plan that was tailored towards our needs (both us and our dogs).  His methods worked great and we noticed a huge difference even after a few sessions with Jim.  We went with the seven session package, and it was the best decision we could have made.  My dogs benefited so much from the structure of the training and we even learned to modify some of their behavior issues during these sessions.  My wife and I just had our first child and we are using Jim to help us with the positive introductions and interactions with our dogs and any guests that we will have stop by in the near future.
