David and Obedience Please really helped me and my wife with our rescue dog, Moose (a chihuahua and jack russel mix). We picked up Moose from a local humane society and had no real problems initially. About a year into having Moose, he started to show some signs of aggression towards strangers and general disobedience towards my wife and me. We signed Moose up for the hybrid boarding and training where he stayed with Obedience Please M-F and came home on the weekend. Moose definitely put David and the rest of the crew through their paces, but in the end has really turned a new leaf. Guests and family members have noticed the change and how friendly and obedient Moose is now. I can’t recommend enough!

I have been taking my dog here for years and have been exceptionally happy with their attention and care. They remember me and my dog by sight and my dog LOVES going there (she pulls like crazy to get in). I would recommend them to anyone.

A wonderful, family run business. What I appreciated the most is how dedicated everyone is to helping your dog. This is a place run by people who really care about animals and who go above and beyond to ensure your fur baby makes progress in an ethical and caring way. They are willing to put the time in and they are so patient. This is my first puppy (I’ve always adopted older dogs) and I would recommend them to anyone seeking help with dog training.
