We adopted Cookie and quickly learned he had issues such as whining and not getting along with other dogs. Cookie was labeled as "aggressive" after a few incidents. We worked with a trainer for a few weeks but were not seeing any progress. We found Paws To Train Your Dog and after meeting with Troy decided on the board & train Dogcation program. Troy opened our eyes to Cookie's and our own anxiety and taught us how to listen and communicate better with Cookie. Troy has been a tremendous help! He's knowledgable and very quick to respond when we have questions. Thanks Troy! ~ Stephanie & Tom
When we lost our dear Porter to Lupus, Stella showed little interest with other dogs, began jumping on visitors, pulling on the leash, and either cowered or growled at other dogs. Our residence includes elevators, dogs of all behaviors and breeds, and busy areas. When Stella started barking profusely at other dogs, ignoring me, I contacted Troy out of worry and frustration. We learned we had a fearful dog that was completely confused, and his training could help.

When we picked up Stella, we were given the gift of a relaxed and obedient dog. Over the three weeks she lived with Troy, he regularly posted videos of her progress, transitioned her to a nutritious raw diet, and trained Stella in our building and the surrounding neighborhood to address our biggest stressors. On her final day, he even came to our home to ensure that we knew how to best navigate and embrace our urban environment from Stella's perspective, including the elevators and doorways.
Troy assessed our specific needs, addressed each one and solved them, and is always a phone call or email away when we have a question. We still have much to learn, but we know we have an expert professional that is readily available and genuinely invested in Stella's well-being. We now also have a safe environment to board Stella, and our successes at home are continuing to grow. Thank you Troy! ~ Kristin & Tim Thornton
We adopted Wrigley and fell in love with her. However we struggled with her puppy training. When left alone she had separation anxiety, barking and whining, and going potty in the house. If crated she would bite the crate and thrash around to the point of hurting herself. We were relieved when Troy said he could help! While Wrigley stayed with Troy, he kept us updated on her progress with emails, photos, and videos. Wrigley is no longer a scared little puppy, listens to us using the commands she learned, and can spend hours in her crate with zero anxiety. We highly recommend Paws To Train Your Dog ~ Victoria & Morgan
Bailey lunged, growled, and barked at other dogs. Walking her was a nightmare. We felt we were in over our heads and we were expecting our first child. After searching for a dog trainer near me, we met with Troy and on the first day he had her playing with other dogs and being a good girl on a leash. It was amazing! Troy showed us how to keep her calm and now we feel comfortable and in control, walks are enjoyable, and we can trust her around our kids. We are thrilled that Troy continues to help us when we struggle with any issues. We highly recommend Paws To Train Your Dog! ~ Briana & Chris Dvorchak
Chet used to destroy his crate and our house, constantly whine, and pull on his leash, lunging and barking at other dogs. If you left the front door open, the chase was on. After weeks of struggling to work with Chet, we found Troy. After one lesson, Chet was a different dog! Today you wouldn't even recognize him as the same dog. He's awesome off leash now, comes back to me every time, and he even has a few bff's in our neighborhood and has play dates as much as possible. Troy's training works!! It totally works!!! I cannot ever thank him enough. Thank you Troy!!! xoxo ~ Jill Boyce
Troy at Paws To Train Your Dog has been amazing! We were having trouble with our puppy, Koda, trying to get her to calm down and listen to us. She caught on to tricks but we struggled with basic obedience. Troy is patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. After a few lessons (and lots of practice at home!) she is walking without pulling and obeying commands. We learn something new every time we visit Troy. Koda is now a happier, calmer and more confident pup! We canít say enough about how positive this experience has been for all of us. Thank you, Troy!!! ~ Sarah & Chaz Feuerborn
I've trained every dog I've owned, and then I got Bailey. None of my training tricks worked so we reached out to Troy at Paws To Train Your Dog. Each week our training lessons were methodically built upon the previous, and our skills grew to match. We realized he was training us as much as Bailey! Her issues had nothing to do with stubbornness and everything to do with how we communicated with her. As long as you practice, stick to the program, and have patience, you will succeed. Bailey no longer pulls on the leash, is much calmer and generally well behaved. Thanks Troy! ~ Scott & Emily Delia
