"Jessica M is amazing. I started seeing her with my dog Eddward for confidence building classes. She has given us both the tools and skills we needed to help Eddward become comfortable and confident and he has come so far since we started seeing her. This recent visit was to help navigate the relationship between Eddward and our cats after moving in with my partner. She helped us identify the stress points between all 3 of our pets and gave us a solid plan on how to move forward. We can already see progress! "

"My Corgi, Pumba, loves Fit Dogs! I think he might like the staff at St. Paul more than he likes us (ha)! The staff is fantastic with him and he always wiggles his butt when he walks in and is excited to see them. Pumba is leash reactive, which makes it harder for him to engage in some normal dog activities. Fit Dogs is a huge for us by allowing Pumba a chance to do normal dog activities, just like any other dog! I can’t thank the team at Fit Dogs enough for all the love and kindness they show to Pumba every week. We used to live very close to the St. Paul Fit Dogs location. But last year, we moved further away. We still drive Pumba to Fit Dogs because of how unique the program is, how wonderful the staff is, and how much Pumba loves his experience. Thanks to the St. Paul Fit Dogs team for everything they do!"

"Our dog Hopper took your reactive leash class back in the spring. She is no longer reactive to all the dogs who charge their fences on our 3x a day walks. It is HUGE improvement and now makes walking fun with her fun again. Yesterday we decided to try going to Silverwood Park armed with pockets of training treats. It was not a very busy time, which surprised us, but she shocked us at how easy it was for her/us. "Leave it" is such a powerful tool and it helped to have some stinky treats as motivation. Going to a new place with all new things to sniff was great mental stimulation that helped tire her out after just a quick 30 min walk. It definitely gave us the confidence that we can try it again to shake up our usual neighborhood walks. I wanted to say thank you and let you know that we are sticking with it and it has paid off."

""I think Lanie is phenomenal. She was kind, informative, persistent with Tofu :), and answered many lengthy emails/questions from me. She never took offense to any questions I had regarding methods (i.e. slipleads) and was always willing to help troubleshoot Tofu's quirks or challenges we were having. She was flexible with communication and helped us set up check-out times on days when we left without writing one down on the board. She sent me a photo of Tofu on the first day of bootcamp--which I adored! It's clear she has a passion for dogs and is interested in continuing her knowledge on how to work with each breed. Tofu learned so much at bootcamp that we are able to use daily to communicate with her, but I was also amazed by her behavioral change in high distraction environments. I shared with Lanie an example of how things went at puppy agility last week after Tofu completed bootcamp, and I know much of this improvement we've seen with Tofu learning how to be around other dogs/people and still find focus is due to her work with Lanie.

He was able to explain both the specific commands but also some underlying philosophy that I found super helpful. Our dog responded great and seems to have had a positive experience too. She is more interactive with the family now. I also enjoyed how he would ask if there were non-class related issues and then give strategies to address those (digging, nipping, etc).

Within one minute ~ literally ~ of my dog greeting him with the usual barks, jumps, and frenzied behavior, he had Django sitting quietly at his feet. Django MAY have jumped on him once or twice more during the 1 1/2 hour session, but each time, Nick firmly stopped him with an assertive sound. Nick had him doing exactly what he wanted him to do throughout the session: on his bed, settle, find a treat, stay, . . . I learned SO much just by watching Nick! I was stunned by the immediate responses from Django!!!! While I realize that it will take me awhile to establish myself as that type of leader, I now have a clear model to follow. He taught me so many ways to play with Django and assert my leadership! I was tearful at one point when I realized the potential that Django and I have to become a team!

"Honestly, I don't know what we would do without you guys. Not only has all of the training that we've done from boot camps, to group training been so beneficial to first time dog owners (especially of a reactive puppy), but we absolutely adore FitDogs. Howie loves it. We can tell that the trainers care about him a lot and they go above and beyond all the time. FitDogs is more expensive than other "just let the dogs run around like crazy all day" daycares, but we find it to be incredibly worth the extra cost. Howie can be a reactive dog at times and so those traditional daycares just do not work for him at all. We just adore you all and so does Howie."

"We brought our 3 year old cream Golden (whose energy has always been unlimited), and our 7 month old newf (who is not a ball of fire) to Fitdogs. What a GREAT place! Highly recommend it to others. Both dogs were happy and exhausted the entire next day! Trainers were on hand to explain what activities each dog did! The cream golden actually did dog yoga--I couldn't believe it! If you have active dogs, or just want to expose your dog to lots of new experiences, this program gets five stars. It's also the only dog facility I've ever been to where nobody was barking when we picked up or dropped off. Their energy must be really positive and calming!"

"I just wanted to send a quick note to say how thankful we are that you offer a Dog Camp for Kids!! Our two kids just completed the camp last week and cannot stop talking about it! The absolutely LOVED it and were disappointed when it ended. It was one of their favorite camps they have ever participated in and both learned an incredible amount in a short amount of time. Their confidence with dogs has grown as well as their knowledge about dogs and how to behave around them. They are already implementing things they have learned with our new puppy at home. The program, staff, and dogs were all fantastic. Coach Melanie was incredibly helpful and responsive and worked with us to make it work for our family. All of the other trainers/coaches we worked with were wonderful as well. We really appreciate it! Superb camp. Thank you, thank you!"

"Our sweet Capo took puppy classes at your St. Louis Park location (Jake was an awesome teacher) and because we were so impressed we enrolled our daughter, Ella, and Capo in the kids camp over the summer. Prior to the camp Ella was a bit timid around Capo and he wasn't great at listening to commands from her. She was so nervous for the first day of camp but I hoped it would be a good bonding experience for her and the puppy. By the end of the camp their relationship was transformed. It went from them not quite knowing how to interact with each other to a true friendship. Ella's confidence with Capo skyrocketed. She would tell him to sit...and he'd listen...down...and he'd listen. She finally felt like she had control over him which made their playtime much more enjoyable. I cannot even put into words how much their relationship changed in the one week they spent at camp. I am so incredibly thankful that you offer the camp and they plan to be back next year. They are truly best friends now and their relationship continues to grow closer...not even sure how that is possible. Ella is hands down Capo's favorite person. Thank you for all you do!"

We prepped her with a lick mat and soft music, had her in her favorite room where she could still see him from a window, but wasn’t actually near him at all and then we kind of just held our breath. And Tessa, holy smokes. She was fine. No shaking. No hiding. No accidents. Only a small reaction to the noise of his machine, but tail wasn’t tucked or anything. I think back to this summer when you agreed that she would need to leave the house with one of us when we had service work done on the home, so this truly is a win for us. We are infinitely grateful to you for teaching us and her how to cope.

"Kerry is absolutely amazing as a dog trainer. She often even did extra research outside of class to help my dog who was a bit shy at times. We took obedience 1 and 2 with Kerry and had so much success with it. It was extra sweet because even when I snapped pictures during the holidays my dog was so eager to do her sits, downs and stays and show off everything she learned in class. We love the K9 coach so much that we are looking forward to going on to therapy dog training with Kerry."

We are now able to enjoy our walks with her, and she’s staying calm and even comfortably interacting with an occasional butt sniff. WOW.

""I felt like we’ve been waiting for Erin for a long time. We did puppy class and obedience 1 with tails up and struggled with our dog. She seems very smart, but struggles with paying attention as she's often fixed on any other possible noise or sight. We’ve learned that our Joonie struggles with anxiety which makes it difficult for her to concentrate and sometimes act aggressively on leash or at the vet. Erin did a great job of explaining it. Erin talked us through our goals and wrote them down for us. We feel we’ve already seen small improvements in Joonie’s behavior, though I also know it may have something to do with the confidence Erin helped us have as owners. It is great peace of mind to have a professional help when your fears are that your anxious dog may one day be aggressive with the wrong person or dog.""

""[Boot camp] is going great! Sooner loves going and seeing her friends there, and she has learned a lot! We really like Brandon and think he has made great strides with her, and with us. We are finally getting trained too. She has calmed down, and has a sense of discipline she didn't have before. Of course, some of it may be that she is just tired after a long day of training and playing, but I think it has made a big change in her demeanor. We will recommend K9Coach to everyone we know who has dog behavior issues.""
