Client Feedback

The satisfaction of our clients is very important to us at Columbia Dog Training. 

I brought my 7 month old GSD to Columbia Dog Training to polish up basic commands and improve leash walking. I was so thrilled with the progress that my pup made with John, I decided to continue with e-collar training. Bruno is now a well-mannered dog and I have already received compliments from so many people on how well he walks on a leash and what an all around well behaved dog he is! I would recommend Columbia Dog Training to anyone who is looking to improve their relationship with their canine.

John and Mary Beth are really nice people with the skills to help you and your dog be happier, and really build a better, healthier, more satisfying life together.
They worked with my dog at the rescue boarding facility before I even adopted her. As a result, this dog is an absolute joy to take for a walk. She just walks right by my side on a loose leash - no pulling, lunging or any other nonsense. As a result, I really enjoy taking her on walks which means we go on plenty of walks together. This makes us both very happy.
A well mannered dog is a loved dog! I recommend them highly!

We brought our Labrador puppy to the center for group training classes. We loved the small class size and how much we accomplished in an hour. Not only did our dog learn commands, but we learned how to properly give those commands...and really that made all the difference! We couldn't be happier with our results and are really glad we made the decision to take the time to really focus on training!

Columbia Dog Training literally saved us from having to find a new home for our blue heeler! Our dog had bitten someone, and we have 2 very small children so we decided to seek out some training before deciding if we needed to find a better home for her (we had had her for 5 years so this was a scary decision). John had his doubts too about Syd but we all committed to helping her! With his training we progressed faster than anyone could have imagined!! You have to put the work in at home to really see results but a few minutes here and there everyday made the difference! Syd is now sitting on her bed when people come in our house, she is enjoying playing games and behaves on runs and walks! We continue to be a work in progress but I know if we had not found Columbia Dog Training and John we would have had to re-home our neurotic little Syd, thank you for helping us be able to keep her as part of our family!!

Happy to be in collaboration with such a wonderful trainer and friend. John is one of the few area trainers I completely trust with my personal dogs and client dogs.

- Rachel S.

The best training program for us. I have learned so mcuh on how to handle Frankie. Now I know our walks will be enjoyable. Thank you John for everything.

We had never seen CeeDee "stay" before - amazing!! Corrected bad behavior and praised good behavior instead of just praising the good. You could see her learning! Keep doing what you're doing!
CeeDee's owner

Explained that our dog would put up a fight. Was very helpful explaining to us what would happen. Hands on. Very helpful and was willing to answer any questions we had.
- Cooper's owner

It was very eye opening to see our dogs working with John. It made us realize that we had no discipline with them. I liked the in home - real life situational training. I also got a lot from John's advice and answers to my questions.
- Gryff's, Puff's, and Sirius's owner

Very professional, yet understanding. Extremely happy with Lex's results.
- Lex's owner

I was satisfied with the initial evaluation of my dog. I think the time of the evaluation was sufficient and her behavior was accurately observed. I liked that the training was in my home and personal. The personal training allowed me to learn how to work my dog and also gave my dog the attention that she needed.
- Lulu's owner

We were very satisfied and were happy to give it a try. I appreciated the non-aggressive approach and I didn't feel like I was being sold on dog training. I felt like John was willing to help if we wanted it but if not ok, no pressure. I like that John came to our house; it made more sense to have our dogs train in their own environment. Also all of the real life training situations we did at the end were so helpful. To be honest there was nothing we didn't like, everything from scheduling, to the actual training was easy. It didn't feel like a chore, it was a great learning experience for not only the dogs but for us too. I just wish I had more time to train the dogs, I think they would have done better if I could have spent more time in between sessions. At least I have the tools and knowledge and would continue to work with them. I already recommended John and hope to send him more  business in the near future. We will probably call him back to help us when we add our new pack member sometime next year.
- Riley's and Saki's owner

Simple steps and answers. I wanted basic training and manners for the dog and John was very effective.
- Zane's owner

John the trainer really knows dogs and has taught us many things about Zeke's behavior that was more us than Zeke and once we changed so did Zeke. Our dog is getting better every day.
