    I left my 6-month-old Golden Retriever puppy with Rick for the two-week board and train program. Winston was never formally trained (wasn't informally trained either, to think of it..). He had no boundaries, didn't know how to walk on a leash, and would jump on everyone and anyone. I was a bit skeptical as to how much could be done in two weeks, but after seeing how Winston now behaves one week later, he truly seems like a different dog (but with the same adorable puppy face.) Rick took his time to explain all of the commands to me when I picked up Winton so that I could continue to practice with Winston at home - which was a tremendous help. I couldn't imagine if he had just handed me a piece of paper and said good luck. And the one tell-tale sign of how great of an experience this was for all parties involved was that Winston stared out my back window as we drove away to go home and cried for a solid 10 minutes.

    Sonja Thiels is amazing! We left our goldendoodle puppy with her for two weeks for board and train. Before Sonja, he was always jumping and biting on my kids, with general bad manners. After his training, we were amazed at how well he listens and obeys. Definitely money well spent if you want a well mannered dog. Highly recommend Sonja and can't say enough wonderful things about her!

    Took our 4 month old puppy for Board and Train with Sonja. She did a great job with our puppy. She sent pictures and videos frequently. Our pup is now more calm and a more well behaved boy. He listens and comes to us when we call his name. He has manners and is a delight to be around. Sonja is really good with dogs. She is friendly, kind and knows how to make dogs happy, mannerly family members.

    We took our 2.5 year old Labradoodle Barney for board and train with Diane in September. He is a sweetie, but very strong, making walks a challenge...until his time with Diane! We couldn't believe the difference in his obedience, both on walks and when greeting strangers. Having taken him elsewhere for 12 weeks of hour-long training as a puppy, we weren't sure how much he would learn now. We are beyond impressed, and can't say enough about Diane, the facility and the care Barney received! We will be back again for boarding when Barney needs another vacation !

    Mike Litzky with Atlanta Dog Trainer visited our home and provided an excellent and comprehensive initial puppy training session. Our 9 week old Welsh Springer Spaniel arrived to our house in Alpharetta on Wednesday and the time with Mike was especially useful. A word about Mike. He arrived spot on time, was professional in every way and was exceptionally organized. We got to work right away which included a good baseline understanding of a puppy's behavior and what our expectations should be. I really believe this was an in home people training as much as anything. I highly recommend Mike and plan to use him in the future, including a group puppy class this weekend.

    We are so happy to have found Atlanta Dig Trainer! Mike is an amazing trainer and the difference in our rescue dog is outstanding. He has become part of our family and we were helped to lovingly guide him past some very destructive and potentially deal breaker behavior. Take your dog here. You won't be let down.

    After having our sweet golden doodle trained with Rick at board and train we can actually enjoy her in the house with us instead of constantly sending her outside. Although she is young (4 months at time of training), she came back to us eager to obey her commands. She effectively bonded with Rick, and that bonding easily transferred over to us once she got home. She's still young and full of energy, but she's finally listening to us and is eager to please. We received communication/pictures from Rick during the two weeks, and when we picked her up we were thoroughly informed by Rick of his time with her, his keen discernment of our dog's personality, and our next steps to take with her in the home. He has also continued to check in with us to see how she is transitioning in the home and he continues to give us insight and advice on our girl. The price is well worth the 2 week training program (I looked into another program that was less $ but only 1 week of training), the facility is clean, homey, and there are many areas for the dogs to play, train, and explore. She had a blast! We were also impressed with how many trainers were on hand training dogs, holding classes, and running the place. She came home to us decompressed, calmer, and easier to handle. We have previous experience with a "5 star" boarding/training business with our old dog and Atlanta Dog Trainer is by far, better. We finally feel like we have a dog that is a part of the family.

    Everyone we met there was professional and seemed to truly enjoy working with dogs and related well to them. The facility was clean as well. We will continue to board there and work with a trainer there as well!

    I thought my Lucie was a hopeless case. Her nickname was "CrayCray". She went in hyper, submissive, fearful and came out calm, obedient and a different dog. She is still the same sweet, playful puppy, but now she listens to commands, waits for her cues and loves to play and interact with other dogs. She much less submissive and has much more confidence. I highly recommend Atlanta Dog Trainer. This is a great value for the money and everyone there is professional and kind.

    I cannot say enough! I did Board and Train for two weeks with Elizabeth for my pup Ansley! Elizabeth was so sweet and fully explained everything that Ansley was going to learn and the exact schedule she would be on while there. While Ansley was there, I got photo updates on her almost daily. She was a rescue pup who was treated for parasites previously. While she was there the staff noted some worms in her stool. They treated her and even took her to the vet at no charge (other than the wormer). I was updated about the entire thing. For me, another bonus was the socialization my little pitbull puppy got while being there. She LOVED IT! They did behavior assessments prior due boarding which made me feel comfortable with my timid puppy. On top of all that, my pup learned all kinds of things and is so easy to deal with now! We received an hour lesson while picking her up. I know I will board her there in the future, no cages and staying indoors for this pup! Long review, but totally deserving!

    PERFECT boarding for our athletic, skittish dog

    We have a young dog that is very wary and skittish around strangers and other dogs. He's not unfriendly or timid, just aloof. He is also very athletic and needs a good bit of activity. He's always happy and well-exercised when we pick him up. He's visited The Farm for vacations a couple of times and we would never bring him anyplace else. We rescheduled a vacation because they didn't have an opening for him at our originally planned time. They are that wonderful.

    I went through level one and two of the ATD school and it was incredible. Wonderful leadership throughout the course and plentiful amount of information to learn. All trainers care about every dog and every client and seek the best results for each person and dog individually! Thank you ADT and all the trainers down there for your amazing help setting up my future!

    I enrolled and attended the Dog Trainer Academy at Atlanta Dog Trainer and it has changed my entire world on dogs. I attended Level 1 and Level 2 of their Academy with plans of finishing Level 3 next year. Susie Aga (Owner) was our primary trainer and she approaches our training with a hands on approach; she keeps the environment entertaining while still delivering and showing examples of very important dog handling techniques. She truly understands how dogs and humans learn. Her staff was always professional, always took time for me, and became family to me. I would recommend Atlanta Dog Trainer to anyone looking to make a career in the Dog Industry or simply looking to solve some unwanted dog behaviors.

    My little pup loves the farm! the staff is so nice and personal, they form bonds and connections with all the animals. The training program was very effective, we noticed behavioral changes right away! We also loved the photos and updates we got during her stay there. I would highly recommend bringing your dog here!
