Client Testimonials

Honest opinions from real customers

“Lori was wonderful Albany dog trainer to have train our Aussie. She was able to help with our needs in as little as 2 weeks, then we were able to start on something else! She was assuring, respectful, knowledgeable, and truly showed she cared not only for our pup but for our families opinions as well. Manager also was wonderful to us, making sure we got the correct services we needed for our pup. I would recommend Smart Dog Services to friends and family.” K. Luna.

“My husky mix is a rescue pup who has intense separation anxiety, kenneling him seemed like a lost cause (as he ate through 3 kennels), He was marking in our home, and destroying our things. Glenn, our Salem dog trainer, was so helpful, he took the time to listen to all of our issues and hear us out. Within hours we had Brodi “kenneling up” within the week we had him staying in his kennel for the whole day. Seriously saved us!!!!” C. Lambert.

“We just finished our Salem puppy training classes and i couldn’t be happier. Nicole was our trainer and she was amazing. What I like best is that the training is personalized to fit your needs in your home” V. Lopez.
