We work with people having issues like these with their dogs, every single day
Walks are stressful.
My dog is pulling me down the street, barks likes crazy at dogs and people, and I’m worried that eventually someone will get hurt.
My dog jumps on guests. I can't have the kids' friends over, because he knocks them down.
My dog is just CRAZY ! It's too embarrassing to take him out in public because he doesn't have ANY manners.
I've gotten him training before. It didn't work, and I don't know what else to do.
He's scared. Of everything. I can't take him anywhere, and I can't leave him home alone.
He won't come back when called. Runs off and won’t come back and I’m worried they’ll get hit by a car or worse.
He just needs some basic manners and training so we can live the BEST LIFE EVER together.
"We sent our brand new 8 week old puppy to her for a two week puppy boot camp, intro to obedience, and it was the BEST thing we could have done for our family and the pup. We are working with her to groom a well mannered and obedient dog and we plan on sending him back when he's older! Adrienne's skill level and expertise is top notch and I knew my puppy was in great hands with her. Highly, highly recommend!"

"Adrienne is THE BEST! She truly cares about the dog's needs and does what's best for them! I love how she's straightforward and tells us what we need to do for our dogs to have a happy and successful life.
I had a reactive dog that came for a board and train, and when he came home we had homework on what we needed to work on, and a dog that knew his basic obedience, was very happy to work, and came back home knowing how to pay attention to his human and tune out the rest of the world.
Adrienne doesn't throw you out into the world not knowing what's going on, she teaches you so that you can keep up the training and succeed! We drove two hours for this training, and we will continue to come back even when we move."

"Had we known about Dog 4 Life when we first adopted our rescue we would have saved a lot of money, time, and misery. We went through three different highly-recommended and highly-rated trainers/organizations... one trainer spent 30 minutes watching our dog and told us that we should consider surrendering or putting him down because it was likely he would hurt another dog.
At wit's end, I called our rescue organization to surrender him, and Dog 4 Life was recommended to us as trainers that handle "tough dogs." They know exactly what they are doing, what they are dealing with, and how to deal with it. They genuinely want to make it work! They are not a one and done company. Dog 4 Life wants you and your dog to succeed. They are available to answer questions and coach us through issues. After the training was completed, Adrienne did hands-on training with our family for 3-4 hours. I cannot say anything negative about Dog 4 Life!

"We did the puppy training. He's miles ahead of where we expected, and it really helped us get off on the right foot. Adrienne gave us a folder of materials that help us continue his training as he grows into new things. She was enthusiastic, caring, and very flexible. Plus, our puppy clearly loved her!"

"Adrienne is a professional, expert, AND educator in her field. I brought my 2.5 yr old German Shepherd for a four week board and train with Adrienne at a friend's recommendation. When it came to being outside, I was the last thing on Athena's mind. She was extremely playful with other dogs and knew no boundaries/respect for handler when another dog was nearby. This was dangerous at times. Athena also lacked motivation outside--no treat was good enough for her attention. Having her spend time with Adrienne truly turned things around for our relationship! I get stopped constantly with compliments on her obedience and how good she is being. Athena is the same dog, just in control of her impulses rather than being a slave to them! I can bring Athena literally anywhere (parks, houses, open water, coffee shops, restaurants) or let anyone over and know she'll be a good girl. Adrienne provided me the right education so that I could keep up the good work with Athena. She's the best and worth any drive (3.5 hours for me!). I trust Dog 4 Life training with my dog's life and look forward to our continuing relationship!"
