"Thirteen years, two dogs, and numerous classes later, I'm here to testify that the teachers at DBF are superb and compassionate, the courses are everything that a dog owner needs, and the results for me were one dog who was a masterful tricks performer and the other who went from the dog of many challenges to a focused, well-behaved, and loving K-9 citizen. We could not have done it without Aimee, Chelse, and the rest of the DBF staff!"

"I owe all of you at Dog's Best Friend Training a great big THANK YOU for all you have taught me since I started attending your classes two years ago with my Lab Guiness. When I adopted Guiness he was 6 months old. He was an easy going, happy pup without a care in the world. Your classes were a wonderful way for Guiness and me to develop our bond and we both had a lot of fun. When Guiness turned 1 1/2 years old and went through a fear stage. I found myself faced with a situation I had never faced before, living with a dog that at times was very unpredictable. Trainers Chelse and Lisa came to my rescue and taught me so much more about training a dog than I could ever imagine. They gave me the confidence and taught me the skills so that I could help Guiness overcome some of his fears, all while providing him with a positive learning environment and loving home."
"Dog's Best Friend Training is a tremendous resource for pet owners. My dogs and I have taken numerous classes and I've found the trainers to be very professional and understanding of the dogs' and owners' individual training needs. In addition, I've had several individual consultations with Chelse Wagner. She is an excellent trainer and animal behaviorist, and has a wonderful rapport with animals with varying temperaments. My dogs and I have greatly benefited from the expertise and training at Dogs Best Friend."
"The staff at Dog's Best Friend have always been available to answer small questions and even have come to see us for a home visit after our puppy starting veering down to visit the road. They are truly an amazing resource."
"If any one is interested in training and understanding your dog I highly recommend Dog's Best Friend. No matter what the situation they are there for you — be it through email or phone, they will address any of your concerns. I am very happy with the training I've received. The results that you see with your dog are amazing. I'm looking forward to taking my classes at Dog's Best Friend. Thank you so much Aimee, Chelse and Lisa for everything!"
