Anyone who picks Amanda Garrow as their dog trainer will be equipped with tools and knowledge to train their puppy or dog with ease and confidence. She has spent years working in her field and above all else, she has a passion for what she does and this comes through in her teaching. I took several course from her from potty to beginner's class and through her I was able to teach my puppy the tools I needed to achieve my goals of having a well rounded puppy that could go out anywhere in the world and behave and be safe. Amanda cares for animals and gives the new owners a sense of confidence to go forward with their new family member. I would highly recommend Amanda as a dog trainer.

Amanda is amazing! I took my mini schnauzer, Mulligan, for several training classes and could not have been happier with the result! I love how Amanda gives a thorough explanation of why we do (and don't do) certain things so you can understand why these methods really work! She is always open to answering any questions you have for ongoing support even after training classes have concluded. I would recommend Amanda to anyone, she really knows her stuff!

dog training client murphy

We recently had the most amazing experience with Amanda! From the moment she walked in our door, our pup was extremely comfortable with her, even WITH her mask on! She explained everything we wanted to work towards, and why. Including explaining it to our 3 kiddos who range in age from 5 to 10. Our pup was very engaged and has continued to respond very well. I highly recommend Amanda for very positive, reward focused training!

Cannot possible say enough good things about Amanda, as a trainer. She's amazing, and I pass along her information to everyone! Amanda has oodles upon oodles of certifications, as well as an incredible love for animals to draw upon, and it shows! She is also fully aware of how to deal with us two-leggers, and get through to us in ways that cement our training into our brains!... After all "dog training" IS people training, and we're so grateful to have the best instructor!

Amanda is the best. As a first time dog owner, I was lost in everything that needed to be done/thought with Nala. Amanda was there for me every step of the way to help me become a better dog owner. She was always calm, patient, positive. And most important of all; she loves her job!

Amanda is a trainer who listens. She is knowledgeable, patient, and gentle - she meets you (and your dog!) exactly where you are in your journey. Amanda doesn't use fear and shame to convince you that her way is the "only" way - she uses her experience, evidence, and observation to come up with a strategy that will work perfectly for YOUR dog, not somebody else's. Our rescue dog Nutmeg has made huge strides thanks to her training and we're so grateful for her guidance.
