What Our Students Say
The Super dog obedience class at TNT was the first group class I’d ever taken with my dog and I was nervous. Fortunately, I had no need to worry. The instructor quickly learned the strengths and weaknesses of each dog/handler team and helped us work through any problems. The class was a great mix of more serious training combined with fun games that put the skills we were learning into practice. Because the class size was small, we all got individual attention. I would highly recommend this class to everyone if you want a better-behaved dog!
I just want to comment on the positive atmosphere at TNT and the innovative methods utilized that help engage my dog and keep him focused. They make the sessions fun, which greatly helps keep my dog motivated and wanting to train. He is very energetic and easily distracted, yet the experienced instructors help me maintain his attention throughout, by offering individualized instruction and different approaches when necessary. I have used other training facilities in the past and highly recommend TNT to all dog owners looking to make the most of the training experience. I am currently taking classes and the instructor is wonderful, understanding, and very helpful!
TNT Training classes are a pleasure to attend. My dog Pearl gets so excited. I think because the training is so positive and fun for her and me. I like the fact the instructor makes time to address questions and challenges and always has workable suggestions. The training center is great so bright, clean, and airy.
