BALANCED POOCHES REVIEWS
We have a one year old Great Dane who ruled our house!! With a dog that big, we needed a way to gently let her know she was the dog and we were in charge. We tried the shocking collars and it only made her worse. The gentle and more positive training John helped to train us to create a better environment for everyone. We were able to take down the doggie gates and she is really a different dog than when we started! Thank you for helping us help Harley!!
I don't normally take the time to write a review but John was so great that I'd feel terrible if I didn't. We hired John at Balanced Pooches to help us get control of our 1 year old Aussilier. He came to our home prepared, on time and full of knowledge. You can tell John really cared about his job and our pets right away. He did what he advertised and we now have a dog that listens and is in a better head space. I would recommend John 100% to anyone that asked and wish him continued success.
John was amazing! He came to my house and helped me train my German shepherd mix. My dog was a bit impatient and had a lack of focus, he would get a little bit aggressive now and then. After John’s help he has gotten SO much better. I know I will use this training for the rest of my life. 10/10 recommend, best in the area.

BEFORE N AFTER DOG TRAINING REVIEWS
I cld Belinda today to get some quick advice on a very serious situation with my dog. Never met her before but saw some really good reviews on her on line. I hung up after talking to her for an hour and feel like now she is a good friend! Wow,she is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable and very sincere. She suggested on the phone ( and followed up with a text) several ideas on items for training I never would have known about. I can promise you contacting her for your training needs will be well worth it. I look forward to starting some in person training with her real soon. - Carol K
Belinda is amazing! She’s so easy to work with, brought treats for my dog and was very quickly able to identify patterns in my dog’s behavior. Within the space of an hour she helped me to work with my 8 year old terrier to have her calm, able to sit in her crate and not be so reactive. We still have some practice to do, but Belinda left us some detailed homework and checks in to see how we’re doing. I’ve stuck to the plan she provided and am seeing great results after just a few days. I’d thoroughly recommend Belinda!
I learned so much about my behavior, as well as my dog’s during training sessions. Huge difference after only 4 lessons. My dog is a rescue so I didn’t know much about his background but that didn’t matter! Belinda’s methods can apply to anyone willing to learn and practice!

I.B. K9 REVIEWS
I was connected with I.B. K9 originally because a dog I was fostering was extremely leash reactive. Jason was so great to work with and has continued to work with him even after he was adopted! Then after finding out we were expecting our first baby, we wanted to get some formal training for our dog, Harlow! Harlow completed their 2 week board and train with Julie and came home with more confidence and is just an overall better listener. She's much better with impulse control and I am confident that she will do great with proper boundaries around the new baby! We can't wait to continue working with them!
I absolutely love them! Julie and Jason have helped me shape my puppy into the best pupper! He was showing signs of reactivity and they helped me understand what to do and how to help him! His obedience is amazing and that’s not something I would have thought a puppy could be capable of. I love how they took the time to explain what was happening and why - they aren’t just helping train your dog, but also you as an owner!
Very pleased! I had an issue with my dog running away and peeing in the house. I feel like I was trained more then Josie (My Dog). Understanding what I was doing wrong has helped make life so much better. I’m very pleased with the professionalism. I would not hesitate to continue to use IB K9 for future issues.
