    Jim did a great job with my dog, Diamond. Diamond can now dance on two legs and can understand spelling. If you spell sit, or down she will do it. I knew she was smart, but Jim showed me a whole new side of her.

    Mr. Stile gave my dog round the clock attention and training which was needed for a puppy like mine. He really loves the dog he is working with and that's important in a dog learning new behaviors.

    Absolutely wonderful experience. James is very knowledgeable and passionate about the training. I was given daily reports outlining what was trained and what progress was being made.
