My name is Paisley, I am a Cattle Dog blend, and a happy student of DTASFL! My Mom started bringing me here when I was a little puppy. I got to go to Puppy Camp and lots of puppy classes that were tons of fun. I also learned how to be a good puppy (most of the time anyway) and, most important of all, I learned how to learn! AND my Mom learned how to teach me things. I love, love, love all of the trainers here! They are all very nice and they give me cookies or toys when I am a good girl. And since this is all about positive training, if I don't do the right thing, they are patient with me and help me until I succeed. That makes me (and my Mom) feel very happy! I am a year old now and I still take lots of classes here because they are really fun, and we stay cool in our AC'ed room, and we never get rained out! My most favorite classes are FlyBall with Sally and Tricks with Kat...and even Obedience is fun (...kinda'...). I don't get to come to too many Agility classes or SOAR's (those are fun too, sort of like doggy pilates!) but I would if there were more times available. DTA has lots of cool equipment, I hope someday they get a big lake with a dock to jump off of, and a farm with some sheeps for us to herd, then they will have everything! (A note from Paisley's Mom: I told her those last two things were not very likely...she said she can still dream.) I highly recommend DTA to anyone who asks me where I learned to be such a good puppy! And if there is any doubt as to how good the trainers are at DTA...Mom only helped me *a little bit* to write this review. Mostly I thought of it all by myself! ~~ <3, Paisley~~

I'm not much of a believer in online reviews but I felt the need to take a moment to respond to this review since I could not disagree with it more. I have been a client of Holly's long before her opening this the Dog Training Academy of South Florida for my own pet and currently enjoy and highly reccomend her classes to my own clients. I have owned large breed dogs my whole life and thought " I know how to train a dog," so when I met Holly with my new puppy she offered me to come try a class, no obligation and honestly I was hooked. Her positive based training methods and compassionate trainers have acutally made me a better owner. I can't tell you how many people compliment me on how well behaved my Aussie is and I can honestly say yes he is a wonderful dog but I enjoy him so much more because of what I have learned with Holly and her trainers in all the different classes we have taken with her. ( Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Tricks) As a manager of a large veterinary animal hospital we see LARGE and SMALL breed canines everyday with training and reactive behaviors that have pushed their owners into considering relinquishing the pet or euthanasia. We refer to Holly regularly for basic training but specifically for her Reactive Dog classes for those pets with specific behavioral issues the trainers can assist owners in retraining (REGARDLESS OF SIZE). We have had such a positive response from our referrals that clients do not mind traveling from Coral Springs to Davie. To me that says EVERYTHING about the quality of the training and service that Holly and her team provide.
I have been bringing my Yorkie CODY to DTASFL for a year now. We started out when he was a puppy, joining puppy classes and puppy camp, which was a tremendous start to my dog's training and socialization skills, learning how to interact and play properly with other dogs of all sizes. We then went on to Obedience and very quickly added in Agility class.. and even animal acting/trick classes!. Both Cody and I look forward to classes each week... his favorite words are "Are you ready to go to school?" Not only are the teachers turning Cody into a very well adjusted dog, but they have taught me how to handle him properly. It is not just about teaching a dog a trick or a command, it's about teaching the owners how to properly train their dogs. I would recommend DTASFL 100% to anyone.. This training facility is perfect for the 8 week old puppy and the 8 year old dog who needs some help. They are an indoor air conditioned facility. They teach positive reinforcement training which in my opinion is the "only way to go"... so please check them out!
