“They did an amazing job with my dog! Couldn’t be happier with the results. Hands down everyone there takes such good care of the dogs and I cant thank everyone enough for all your help! Would highly recommend!”

Stateline Canine did a great job obedience training my 6-month old Bedlington Terrier puppy. Their training agenda was organized and included a session with me each week so that I could practice at home. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. I love walking with my dog now. He stays right by my side and sits immediately when I stop. He comes readily and reliably when I call him.

I sent my pup back to school for an additional two week session for off leash recall and refreshers for other behaviors. Mykala Mantz did a fantastic job! She understood the problem and did the required behavioral adjustments to achieve the desired outcomes. Katy is like a different pup when it comes to control!

Stateline is nothing short of amazing. They are the best training facility. Ryder took to Makyala (I hope I spelled her name correctly) so effortlessly and my fiancé and I have a completely different/improved RyderBoy. We are so happy!! I will continue to recommend them to anyone!!!
