I love this facility and the trainers. I had heard about this place for years and when I finally needed to go I was very impressed with the level of training and knowledge the head trainer Gary and assistant Joe have with all types and sizes of dogs. Whether small or big they can work with all breeds. My female dog was a rescue dog and I took her there for basics and I wanted her to be able to come back when called since she was...was a runner. Now she will stop and stay and best of all come when called. I will always take my dogs here. I will always tell everyone I know how great this place is for dogs.

WORST PLACE POSSIBLE. DON'T GO THERE...
I brought my dog there for there boot camp training and was horrified and in tears when I picked him up. When I got him he was 15 lbs under weight and had an extremely swollen ankle. Further review and x-rays the vet did showed that it was sprained and his doc said it looked like a door or something hard was shut on it. The doctor also said my dog was so under weight bc he had to of been starved for at least a week and was EXTREMELY dehydrated. When I called up to speak with his "trainer" I was told an investigation would be done. I spoke the next day to the trainer again and he said that they didn't do anything to my baby and that he saw him eating. I now need my dog on a special food for a month because of how undernourished he became so quickly. Not only that when I tried to speak with the company about helping out with the vet bills, because the day before I brought him to training he went to the vet for a physical and he was in great condition, perfect weight ,no sprained ankles nothing, they told me there was nothing they could do even though they were the culprit of his illnesses. Not only did he come home and brought to the vet costing me a 400 dollar vet bill, I also spent 800 dollars on training so my dog can cower whenever I try to give him his food or do anything with him (which he NEVER did before he went to that place.) now not only does my dog cower for everything he is worse with strangers then ever before which is what he went in for. My dog also came out of that place smelling worse then a zoo I had to give him 3 baths just to get the stench of the place off him. This company is VERY shady and I would NEVER EVER recommend people to bring there pets there for anything.
