Every trainer at tug dogs is wonderful! I did a board and train with Erin for one of my dogs and she was so helpful. Erin is extremely knowledgeable, professional and skilled at what she does. It is so nice to have Tugdogs to count on. Thank you!

Tug dogs is amazing! I've sent two of my dogs for board and train to help deal with their anxiety and leash aggression during walks. Erin dealt with their issues successfully.

I absolutely love Tug Dog!! They have helped us so much with Mo, our German Shepard rescue. WoW!! What a difference from one session. I kept checking their facebook all day while at work looking for an update. Finally, there it was!!! Our big boy sitting close to another dog... Progress!!! I was so happy.

The cliffnotes version is: Trainer Sean and Tug dogs saved our family from non-stop fighting and frustration due to our GSP puppy with separation anxiety and terrible manors...It was worth every penny and I wish I had done it sooner.
