“Skyler was absolutely amazing and so patient with our Border Collie, Coco. We had been struggling with walking him due to Coco being reactive towards other dogs after having some encounters with other dogs in the neighborhood. We were so lucky to find Skyler because she not only helped to correct those behaviors but also gave our sweet Coco his confidence back.”

Border Collie and person

If anyone needs a dog trainer, Skyler is amazing! The difference she made in three weeks with these two on walks with strangers and dog reactivity is remarkable! They both had completely different reasons and issues for the behavior, but she recognized it immediately and worked with each one in their own way!

I can not say enough about Redemption Dog Training and Skyler! We had a stressful situation in our home with our two dogs and Skyler immediately responded to your request and was promptly available to come over and evaluate. Upon meeting her, her professional and calming demeanor made both the dogs and me very comfortable! She provided realistic and very helpful suggestions that almost immediately resolved our issues. So grateful for her!

Man Training German Shepherd

Hi, my name is Tim. I am a disabled US Army Veteran. I recently adopted a German Shepherd puppy from a local shelter, his name is Duke. He’s 13 months old and 96 pounds.
To say he was a handful would be an understatement. He was very aggressive with other people and animals. I was unable to take him out for walks.
I found Skyler, owner of Redemption Dog Training from her website and reviews.
She came out and outlined a clear training program for me and my dog. The first week there was a vast and immediate improvement in his behavior. She has a unique ability to put dogs and owners at ease and tailors her training to different dogs and owners.
For the first time, I was able to take Duke on walks through the neighborhood and he can be around people and other animals.
She also told me if I ever needed anything to give her a call and was very patient with all of my questions. Simply put, she saved my puppy!

“My husband and I have been extremely happy with Skyler, her dog training skills, and her professionalism. My small dog was extremely reactive towards other dogs and people, which was the main thing we wanted to work on. We immediately noticed differences in our dogs confidence levels and he was improving after everyday. Skyler even taught us how to maintain his training for evenings and days she was away.”

“We have been amazed by the progress Skyler has made with our 2 rescue pups. Skyler was great in working with us to learn the tools we needed to help our pups make lasting change & be successful. Our fearful pup Milo is so much more confident and less anxious…”

“Skyler is awesome. We chose her after much research based on her reviews and her science based methodology and were NOT disappointed! She is punctual, professional, and most importantly, she is intuitive with dogs. She knew exactly how to help us get our dog on the right track to success…”

Pit Bull

“I can not sing higher praises for Redemption Dog Training, and specifically Skyler. Since our dog has started training with her, the leaps and bounds he has made with her are astounding… They take the time to explain and work with you as a pet owner to help your dog learn and retain the good habits they help to instill. I just can’t recommend them enough.”

“Skyler is an incredibly gifted animal trainer. I reached out to her at a time of desperation to help with my dog Mookie. He had certain protection and reactivity behaviors that he was exhibiting with more and more frequency especially on our walks. He was jutting out at people and other dogs, refusing to walk near me and pulling me over, barking aggressively if anyone came near the house. Now I get stopped on my walks for how well behaved he is – he has learned to walk right by me and does not approach other dogs or people without my permission…”

Dutch Shepherd Mix

“Skyler is amazing! She helped us with our 5 month old, stubborn shepherd mix. The difference from day one to the end of her sessions is simply stunning. Additionally, she takes the time to communicate with the pet owner to understand what your goals are instead of telling you what she is going to do…”

“HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Skyler is an amazing dog trainer & walker! She’s prompt, a great communicator, understanding of my dog’s anxiety and quirks, reliable, offers a flexible schedule, and trustworthy. My dog is better trained on leash (no pulling) and Skyler never judges the dog, she’s always happy to help & offer many solutions for training…”

Aussie Mix

“We had such a great experience with Skylar and our 2 dogs. She really helped us understand our bulldogs behavior and how to work with him and empowering our kids to feel comfortable and confident working with them too! If you’re looking for a trainer that will customize a plan for your dogs and family, Skylar is the one!”

“Skylar trained my dog, Cree and was very helpful in helping him be a well behaved dog and answering all of my questions. I highly recommend her services. She’s extremely knowledgeable and patient.”

Cavalier King Charles

“I have a cavalier King Charles spaniel boy and he has been having so much trouble with not going absolutely insane with jumping up on people when people come over, and if food is on the table it was game over. Last night for the super bowl, he was able to stay in sit WITH FOOD in his reach for the first time ever. If someone told me he’d be able to do that last month I would’ve laughed and said no chance. And his leash manners are night and day better…”

“Skyler is an amazing trainer! She comes and learns your dog and loves them even when they are at not at their best behavior. She is supportive and gives great training and insight into your dog. She gives you the confidence and tools to have a well trained dog. We were so impressed how she helped us with a move and baby and getting him ready for such huge changes. She continues to support us and our dog adores and loves her every time she comes over.”
