We called Best in Breed Dog Training the week after we rescued Nellie when she was 13 weeks old. Found under a car, Nellie was scared, hungry and really wanting to be loved. Calling Chris was the best decision we ever made after taking Nellie in to our home. With Best in Breed we were taught simple and effective training tools that helped Nellie become part of our pack. I really think EVERY dog owner should train with Best in Breed!

We have been extremely pleased with the training provided to our two Chihuahua's by Chris and Mickie. Both Chris and Mickie have a great understanding of dog psychology and methods to use for each specific behavior. If only we had done this earlier! Our house is now harmonious, and our little companions are much happier, as well as better behaved. We highly recommend Best in Breed Dog Training to everyone. We found it wasn't too late to correct old problems, and we had lots of fun being trained ourselves! Please don't hesitate to use Best in Breed Dog Training...it's a worthwhile investment!!

I highly recommend Best in Breed Dog Training and Mickie as a trainer whether you have specific issues to address or general training. Her understanding of how a dog's mind works, as well as the respect she has to both the nature of a dog and the nature of dog owners is amazing. Baxter and I have greatly benefited from having her join us over the past few weeks, and I feel we are well on our way to a better life together. The best part of the training is that it's simple and fun! Should you use Best in Breed Dog Training for your dog, I am confident you will be very happy you did.

We were very happy with the training we received from Mickey and Chris. Their gentle, yet firm approach to training dogs is exactly what we needed for our 2 dogs. They gave us the tools necessary to control our dogs in and out of the home. Consistency and patience are key factors with this training. If you have any questions someone is always available to help during the training period, as well as after you have completed the training. We highly recommend Best In Breed Dog Training!

As a life long dog lover who always wanted to have a trained pet I could never find the right person/company to select to do this. My luck changed when I met Chris Zimmerman. Upon meeting Chris I felt comfortable that now was the time to try. He is personable, professional, competent and dedicated to his vocation. Plus for me he was reasonably priced for what I wanted to accomplish with my 2 year old English Toy Spaniel. He comes to you with my highest praises and recommendation. He will get the job done just as he promises.

I've used Best In Breed twice, once with my schnauzer, and then with two Yorkies. Both times were very successful. With the trainers' coaching, and my understanding that I had to work with my dogs consistently, I was able to turn my dogs from spoiled, demanding pooches to well behaved companions. It was money well spent, and I've recommended BIB to a number of my friends and coworkers.

My wife and I received a flier from the company, and decided to call. We didn't know they were out of Atlanta, (we are in Hilton Head, SC). We were astounded they drove 5.5 hours each way!! for our 1 hour of training per week. This said to us, these people are REALLY putting their money where their mouth is. They live, believe, and really put their all into training us, to train our dog. The training was exacting, wonderful, and very useful! Our dog listens, and is easily controllable with an almost effortless ability. Truley amazing, this group could not come more highly recommended. Honestly, they are the best we have ever met!

Chris assisted us with (2) yellow Lab littermates becoming part of a large family w/4 young children. Bottom line, the training was extremely effective and got the RESULTS we expected. With Lab puppies, this could have been a mess, but with Chris' help, sanity prevails in our household and the dogs have seemlessly become part of the whole family. Thanks Chris!

I contacted Chris, Best In Breed because I was having discipline problems with my dog. Roxy, a 5 yr old mix breed, was lunging at the door when visitors arrived, not listening to commands and was unable to walk on a leash. After 4 lessons, Roxy is listening consistantly and behaving much better when visitors arrive at the door. She has made great progress. I would highly recommend BEST IN BREED DOG TRAINING!!!
