All Ways Dog Training
- EricApr. 12, 2019Absolutely Amazing!
I recently got my first dog every (well first one I have owned and was responsible for. The family dog that my mom got when I was in middle school doesn’t really count as my dog.) Not only is this dog my first dog, but I am training him to be my autism service dog. Training a dog for the first time is one hell of an intimidating experience, training that dog to be a service dog increases the intimidation and difficulty by 10 times. If it wasn’t for the amazing help and training that All Ways Dog Training has provided, this is a challenge I wouldn’t be able to overcome—but thanks to their help, not only am I successfully training Fox to be my Autism Service Dog; he is learning faster than I could have ever expected.
All Ways Dog Training has truly been a real blessing in my life, and the trainer, Peggy, has exceeded my expectations in every way possible. I am both Autistic and I am a full time college student. Both of those cause a very unique set of barriers that most people don’t face. I have limited income, I need things communicated in a specific way, I need to ask lots of questions, my schedule is extremely tight, etc.
Half the challenges that I face as an Autistic College student would normally be enough to make training a dog impossible—but All Ways Dog Trainer Peggy has gone above and beyond in making sure the services that she provides are accessible so that I can be successful. She has absolutely gone out of her way to make sure that I had access to All Ways Dog Training and the training she provides. She has been able to answer each and every one of my questions—even when they are at 1 in the morning! She has been able to work with my very tight college schedule! She has done so much that words alone can never truly express just how thankful I am for everything she has done. When it comes to providing accommodations that I need as an autistic, she has exceeded the ADA 10 fold!
Thanks to her wonderful instruction, ability to answer questions, and ability to meet my unique needs—Fox was able to handle being on the bus—perfectly—on just his third day of training! The knowledge and skills Peggy has as a dog trainer is nothing short of exemplary!
If you are looking for a place to get high quality dog training that you can count on, at a place that will meet your unique needs—this is absolutely the place for you. I honestly can’t give them enough praise for how wonderful a job that they have done. I can promise that you will not be disappointed in their services!

When I took Lincoln to his first class with Tara I could barely walk him myself. I could not figure out what I was doing wrong or how to fix it. Tara gave me the tools and the skills to teach Lincoln. I have attended several other dog training classes but the approach wasn’t working for me. Tara has several approaches and doesn’t stop there! She is an unparalleled expert in her field with the experience to individualize your training in a group class. She is attentive during class, asking and answering questions and allows glowing conversations! You can call her or email her between classes and she gets back to very promptly! We behave a busy schedule working 40+ hrs a week, taking classes, taking care of my family etc... it is a one hour a week class class commitment with his training happening the rest of the time in small increments.
Lincoln graduated his Intermediate class yesterday with his CGC (Canine Good Citizen) award! Afterward I took him to the farmers market, the pet store, and Home Depot! He couldn’t go with me anywhere before and now because if the expertise of Tara I have a companion and a buddy!
I wholeheartedly recommend All Ways Dog Training and Tara! Contact her - she can help :)
