What our Students Say

The Intermediate Obedience class at TNT was the first group class I’d ever taken with my (mostly) reformed dog-reactive dog and I was very anxious about it. Fortunately, I had no need to worry. The instructor, Lâle Aksu, quickly learned the strengths and weakness 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 and Lale was always willing to stay late to give extra advice. I would highly recommend this class and instructor to anyone looking to polish up their dog’s basic obedience.

Becky Hemphill & Cairo
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 with Jane Eskuri and she is wonderful, understanding, and very helpful!
Nancy Fitch & Cooper
Jane Eskuri & TNT Training are a winning combination the 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 that Jane makes time to address questions and challenges and always has workable suggestions. The training centre is great so bright, clean and airy.
