Our first mastiff, Rasmus, started showing signs of aggression. Troy instinctively picked up on his health issues, helped us learn what was happening and gave us effective methods to help him calm down. A year later, Troy helped us train, Ronan, our rambunctious, mischievous, playful mastiff puppy. Ronan is now a well-behaved dog. Troy is truly an advocate for dogs, wants what is best for them, and is quick to respond to any concerns or support we need. We're so happy and our experience with Troy has been nothing but satisfying. If you are looking for a holistic approach to dog training, Troy is your guy! ~ Eric & Kim
Within the first week of Kip being in our home, he bit one person and snapped at several others. We were concerned as we have three teenagers and my grandbaby. All our fear and trepidation melted away after meeting with Troy. Troy is one of the most relaxed, calm, and peaceful persons I think I have ever met. He agreed Kip was not an aggressive dog, but instead was a "fear" biter and that Kip had probably given several warning signs prior to biting, but we were not aware of them. ... [read more]
I was concerned about the price for what we thought would be a typical dog obedience class. What we got was a wonderful and amazing journey into the life of our dog. Troy is willing to go the extra mile for you, but don't show up without your homework done, a handful of excuses, and expect results. We have had some minor setbacks at times, but that is because we failed Kip. When we stray from the concepts taught in class, so does Kip. When we have a problem or question, Troy responds almost immediately and helps us stay on track. If you are looking to develop a meaningful, lifelong relationship with your dog, look no further. Troy is the best! ~ Laura Stenzel
Troy has been absolutely amazing. He is 100% dedicated to my dog's wellbeing and training. His methods work, and Troy could not be more patient explaining and demonstrating his methodology. Maple has made great improvements in a very short amount of time. Strangers complement me on how calm and well behaved she is. If you're looking for a dog trainer, your search is over - I am confident you will be happy and achieve real results with Troy. ~ Maja Berlin
We took our Bitsie to Troy for aggression towards other dogs. Troy is a true dog lover and expert! He will not BS you about "fixing" your dog, but rather educate and teach you why your dog behaves certain ways and how training can help. I felt he advocated for Bitsie's best interest, which is so important when trusting someone else with your fur kid! *Biggest thing* This training is a long term investment in you and your pup's happiness, not a "quick fix." It took work on our part to see lasting results. Thankfully, we know if we have any further issues, Troy provides lifetime support to get back on track. Thank you, Troy! ~ Laney Meeker
When we first got Boomer, he would lose it at the Vet's office, flopping around like a fish, alligator roles, cowering in the corner, growling, barking, biting...and that was with sedation. Boomer then started snapping at everyone in our home. We could no longer trust him. You can't help dogs unless you understand them. When Boomer would shake, I thought it was excitement. Troy read Boomer right away, he wasn't excited, he was trembling with fear. ... [read more]
You have to know your dog, and Troy does.
All of the training has paid off. We didn't realize how much Boomer had improved until he got a sore paw and we had to take him to the vet. Troy met us at the Vet's office and walked us through how to work with Boomer with the Vet. Wow! He was NOTHING like before, he was calm and behaved like a good boy! Boomer allowed the Vet to come close and actually exam him. Troy has taught us so much on how to help Boomer. Thank you Troy! ~ Cookie & Tod Hegstrom
Lucy was aggressive toward other dogs, spinning out of control and pulling on the leash. At home, she would bark at any little thing and pace the backyard. She seemed so stressed out and insecure. We needed help. Troy helped us so much, not only with the correct ways to keep her calm before and after walks, but all around rehabilitated our dog. After I had my baby, Troy invited us back to do more training with his advanced group classes. He offers lifetime support to all his clients so these classes were free! She is now a much happier dog! I highly recommend Troy! ~ Audrey Fairley
