We adopted Ember and she turned our lives upside down with bad behaviors. Troy helped us see that Ember was just a very insecure and anxious dog that craved structure and clear direction. Ember would bark at us constantly, chew our belongings, nip at us, pull on her leash, counter surf and terrorize our other dog. After Troy's doggie bootcamp, Ember is like a new pup! She is finally calm, happy and content, and so are we. We are also using what Troy taught us with our other dog and can already see a huge difference. I cannot say enough about Troy and Paws To Train Your Dog. ~ Dana & Brandon
Our dog Lacy was a very fearful dog. She was afraid of ceiling fans, car keys, plastic bags, you name it. We enrolled Lacy in the Dogcation Program, and now she is so much calmer. Troy is always willing to personally help if we are having any struggles with her. His life-time guarantee is just that. We continue to work with Troy and believe in his training techniques. We are truly satisfied and could not be happier that we found Troy. Without his help we may have given up on our sweet dog. I would highly recommend Paws To Train Your Dog to anyone who needs help with their dog. Thank you Troy! ~ Dennis & Jean Anderson
I work in the pet industry. My pets are my babies (yes, I am one of those). I wanted to have a dog I can take everywhere and after searching through many trainers I found Troy. I know he isn't the cheapest but his experience and his outlook peaked my interest. I read his reviews before booking our evaluation. I wasn't sure what to think going into our evaluation but, he quickly put me to ease. He was very thorough, explained everything and taught me more about dogs, training etc than any class or workshop I have taken for my profession. I was so so so impressed. ... [read more]
After the first class, I could tell there was a change in my dog, even my parents saw a drastic change in her. What he said made sense. On the second class, I admitted I wasn't working with her as much as I prob should due to family matters and asked about boarding training. He stopped and talked to me about it all. He was extremely caring! He really thought she would do well, and it would help me, with the private classes. By the third class we had it down! We then attended his group class which he was so impressive with how he had all the dogs in check and to see how well my dog was doing.
My bond with Lucy is now closer than before. She is no longer as nervous and she is listening so much better. This was worth every penny and Troy stands behind his work! ~ Ciara Schmalfeld
Our Quinney was skittish, fearful of new people and not very obedient on walks. Troy helped us to see how Quinney was communicating with us and how to help her. Quinney continues to grow more comfortable with new people and allows them to greet her without barking, fleeing, or peeing. We are better at seeing when she's uncertain and advocating for her. Walking Quinney has improved greatly! Troy is the best trainer we've ever worked with. He's professional, honest, and adds value in every interaction you have with him. Highly recommend! ~ Chase & Karen Colton
Odie was jumping incessantly, lunging at everyone, nipping, and even bit my mother. I was ready to give up. During the consultation with Troy, I received a plethora of information about dogs and detailed information about Odie. I was overwhelmed and confused, but assuaged by Troy's knowledge and confidence. Troy said without proper training Odie would eventually hurt someone. I knew in my heart that he was right. ...

After our first training session, Odie was was calmer and listening to me! I learned that my nervousness and anxiety were translating into a nervous and anxious dog. Troy taught me to relax in such a way that my entire attitude, even with my kids!, has evolved into an awareness of how I carry my daily stresses.
Odie is not perfect, but she is SO much better. I am so glad that I invested in Troy's training. Troy probably saved Odie's life, and he has enriched mine with lessons that go beyond dog training. I now have the dog I was seeking, and my relationship with Odie is stronger for the training experience we shared. Thank you, Troy!! ~ Laura Dix

Our dogs started having frequent fights that led to vet visits, we knew we needed serious help. We've been working with Troy and our home is finally peaceful. We continue to practice what Troy has taught us and have seen some amazing transformations, but when things go backwards, Troy is there to help us. Without Troy, we would have had to re-home or put down one of our beloved dogs. Now our entire pack is the calmest and happiest that they've been in the 8 years we've had them. We whole-heartedly recommend Troy!! ~ Jeni & Rebecca
Our Daisy was super hyper, terrified of everything, and lunged and growled at other dogs. I took her to a few other trainers, but she didn't learn much and I still struggled with her. Out of desperation, I found Paws To Train Your Dog and I couldn't be happier. Troy helped me train Daisy, but primarily trains me! Daisy is kind of a special needs dog, so she may need lifelong help... That's okay, because once you go through training with Troy, he offers lifetime support! Thanks Troy! ~ Susan Celaya
