I had to kennel my dog due to my having surgery. I thought that rather than just putting him into a kennel, I would enroll him in dog training. He is a 73 pound, 10 month old Doberman Pinscher. I chose US Canine's total immersion program. Boy am I glad I made that decision. Not only is my dog very well behaved now, but he had loads of fun playing while being trained. He no longer jumps on people, no longer jumps on my little dog (to play) who is almost 13 and weighs only about 12 pounds, no longer pulls on the leash while we are out walking...I could go on and on. Also the people are just incredible. They love animals and are experts at what they do. Probably most important of all is they trained me in order that I better understand my communication with my dog in order to have him almost always mind his manners (no dog, like humans, is perfect - in my eyes he is, but you get the point). I think I needed to be trained more than him. They really "get" dogs. These are the reasons for the 5 star rating. If I could go higher I would. US Canine can resolve any behavior issue. You won't be disappointed if you go with US Canine!!
US Canine trained my dog to mind his manners in his daily life with whatever we do together. He is amazing and US Canine is too!

Our dog Queen just finished her 2 week immersion program and we are so proud of her. We were not able to leash walk her prior to her training, nor did we have the tools to communicate properly with her. Both my husband and I now feel empowered to direct Queen correctly and we are learning to feel confident in controlling the situation when we take her out for a walk or out in public. Josh was very patient with all of our questions and issues and taught us to be calm but firm and to always follow through on what we start - period. We are now excited to take her out on walks (before we were terrified) - looking forward to seeing what is next for Queen. Thank you US Canine!

Angie/Josh and the entire team at U.S. Canine was fantastic with training our dog Murphy. He was labeled as "damaged" by a competitor to U.S. Canine and not only did they prove that he wasn't damaged, but he is now a great pet and behaves and lovingly fits in with us. U.S. Canine was very flexible with us as Murphy needed to take a break from training and are always there when we need them as the training is for life and not just when he was there. If we ever have issues, we can send the team videos, call or drop him off for a few days to board and they address any issues we're having. I'd highly recommend their services as they are very knowledgable and truly care and love on all of the dogs they work with. We're about to take Murphy up for more training on a treadmill so he can start getting out more energy on nasty days when we can't walk him.

I do a lot of dog rescue and have three dogs of my own - two of which have severe fear issues. One is fear aggressive with people and the other is scared to death of people. I have come across Angie's name many times in the rescue business. I finally decided to give her a try to see if she could help my girls. Both girls spent two weeks with Angie's pack and I was absolutely amazed at the results. Not only did Angie train my dogs but she trained me on how to deal with my dogs and their issues to make them more comfortable in their skin. My friends and family have all noticed the difference in their behavior and my ability to manage them. The fact that I can walk them all with leashes in one hand and no pulling is amazing. I laugh at people who walk by me with one dog they can't manage and I have three well behaved animals who respect me as their leader. I now have take several of my rescue dogs to Angie as well as referred several of my friends. I have yet to find someone who is not absolutely amazed at the results. It's worth every penny and is the best investment I made in the animals I plan to have for a long. I highly recommend taking your dog to Angie Woods at US Canine. She's definitely the best!
