Couple of beautiful German Shepherds I’ve had the privilege of training and caring for while Wade Davis is getting ready to pitch another season for the Kansas City Royals. I’ve even learned a little German in the process. Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks!

Bryan and Chris worked with our German Shepherd, Sam, like she was their own. She's much more respectful and attentive. We are very pleased with the services they provided.

I am so pleased with the training my chocolate lab, Callie received at MDT. She is now the most well-behaved 12-month-old dog! Her issues with dominance, not listening and jumping are non-existent and walking her is now a breeze! If it weren't for Midwest Dog Training, we might not have been able to keep her. It has been 4 months since she was trained and we couldn't be happier with the results! Chris even came to our home the second tie when we needed him to help us (not the dog) with being assertive owners. Thank you Chris and Grant!

My 2 dogs CoCo (boxer mix)and Winston (akita) have been excellent at following direction since their stay at Midwest Dog Training. They were both runners and jumpers, now they can stay in their place for 40 minutes if needed. I also received excellent hands-on instructions when he returned them to me.

Want to thank TJ Oshie for the opportunity and pleasure of training Lilly and Charlie who went home last week. Tj is about to have best year ever playing for Washington. Very well known for bringing USA to victory in shootout against Russia with 4 goals. Thanks again and have a great season.

I can't say enough good things about Chris and the work he did with our Maggie. Just returned from a 2-mile walk up the gravel at our Minn cottage with no lead. She hangs around the cottage with no supervision just like she knew what to do to please us! Took a pup with no discipline and made things fun knowing what was expected. Go to a restaurant and sits quietly under the table. By far one of the best investments I ever made.

Our 6 yr old Labradoodle and 1 yr old Bouvier have been home 3 weeks after training with Chris. We are very happy with their new dispositions. The Labradoodle no longer pulls on the leash. The Bouvier has calmed down quite a bit and no longer jumps. They both come when called and know "off" means "off". We have no regrets and know we all benefitted from the training they received at Midwest Dog Training. Considering they were boarded for three weeks, the expense was on par with any other we've found in our area. Thanks for following up with us Chris and we'll be in touch if we need more assistance. Highly recommend you and your training techniques.

Midwest dog training worked magic with my pitsky "Alpha". Through the process we visited each week and could see the progress as time went by. I really didn't know what to expect when I showed up to go over the training and to take him home. I was pleasantly surprised. You always see those dogs in YouTube videos or in commercials doing various things and wonder how they do that?? Well after seeing Alpha perform I can now see it's possible to get your pet to do some pretty remarkable things. There isn't anyone I'd recommend more than Chris at Midwest for your dog training needs.

I'm writing to tell you that Sweets is going so well! I've really been working with her on "wait" and she's sooo good at it now, when before Midwest Dog Training, I could barely get her to focus for more than ten seconds. Sweets barely ever need her collar, only every once in a while when she needs a little reinforcement. Sometimes she's still nervous on walks, but she much more confident now and that will come with time. This is to be expected because she had zero socialization for nearly the first year of her life, that's work for ME to do with her, and we work together on this. I am sending you a picture that shows the most rewarding thing to come from sending Sweets to you for three weeks. She was so unruly before that my 11-year-old Great Pyrenees would never have stayed near her if she came near him, especially on the couch. He'd simply go off in a corner to get away from her. Now, all I have to do is snap my fingers and say "nice" and she settles down immediately...for reals! Both of them snoozing on the couch together is simply sooo wonderful to me!!! She's only 18 months so she's still like a bull in a China closet, but that's a giant breed puppy for you, and I didn't want her changed, just able to focus...and that's what I got. I thank you so much, Sweets is on her way to being the best she can be, we're all so happy!
