As a retired police officer, I know how valuable the Police K-9’s are to society. Moreover; I know the extensive training which goes into these dogs and the level of expertise it takes to make them so great. I knew Justin had a vast knowledge in training police dogs, but what impressed me the most about him was his diverse background and knowledge of training pet dogs. I’m a single mother with three young rambunctious French bulldogs, living in a condo and we desperately needed his help. Justin knows how to fix these issues and get lasting results! His ability to communicate with the dogs is exceptional and like a sixth sense. Whats even better, is his his ability to communicate with the owners, insuring the success of his training program. All this coupled with excellent, genuine and authentic customer service is why I give Justin my highest recommendation.
Remarkable! That is the word to describe the resulting change in our German Shepherd Dog Remi after her intensive training with Justin. I had attended several group training scenarios as well as contracting with two different trainers for a long series of private sessions but simply could not get the result we needed with respect to curbing our dogs behavior. At best, minor adjustments were achieved in that regard but no way could I trust Remi with strangers, which of course she could sense and so her negative behavior continued. Literally nothing seemed to work. It had actually reached the point that giving her away was looking to be the best option since we could control her and the consequences of Remi’s behavior could not be tolerated. Justin was the first trainer to identify Remi as a nervous dog that exhibited aggressive behavior as her coping mechanism as opposed to a truly aggressive canine. Justin’s ability to identify the cause of Remi’s behavior and therefore provide the appropriate type of training was the key to turning around the entire situation. Putting our trust in Justin proved to be the best decision we made because now we have the dog that we always desired.
Like some of you reading this testimonial, I had my fair share of doubts. First off I didn’t know how I was going to part with my dog for three to four weeks. And how was all of that training going to stick when Remi returned home since I wasn't directly involved in the training process? Finally, after hearing Justin describe what he was going to do and noting that he was “guaranteeing” the behavior changes, it all sounded frankly “too good to be true”.
I can tell you that in reality, Justin not only delivered on everything he promised, but actually exceeded our expectations. Remi is beyond anything we could have imagined and she continues to improve. Honestly, people that meet Remi are amazed at how well behaved and obedient she is and are envious of the level of control that I have over her. The added bonus for us is the positive change in her personality. I cannot describe the feeling of pride that we now have in our dog and the gratitude we feel towards Justin.
Honestly yours, Stuart Melnikoff

Justin is always a pleasure to train with. Instead of just showing you, he takes the time to explain when, where, and why. It’s quite obvious Justin has a unique and special gift in training dogs and teaching the handlers. He understands dogs and most importantly respects them. Im very grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to train with Justin!
“My DJ was a very typical Jack Russell Terrier, full of drive, curiousity and nearly impossible to control around other animals. I run a very busy horse farm and mobile equine natural health & oxygen therapy business and my dogs are always with me. After a few scary and close calls where DJ got away from me, I called Justin for help. After DJ completed his off-leash training program he came back like a new dog! He was incredibly obedient and responsive but what was even more impressive was that DJ loved his new found clarity. He use to take off from me on the farm and he couldn’t care less where I was. Now, he listens and eagerly waits for his next command. This gave me the greatest feeling of confidence and peace of mind, creating harmony on the farm!

My husband Edward and I would like to thank Justin Rigney for making our two German Shepherds responsible citizens and wonderful pets.
They are well bred, wonderful dogs and with Justin's extraordinary training abilities and vast experience he has instructed our dogs in obedience training and behavior modification which has served to only enhance our lives with our beloved pets.
We have an ongoing program with Justin to help our dogs perform to their fullest potential.

I contacted Justin with the hopes of being able to enjoy my dog without being stressed out. Crosby is a high energy Goldendoodle who had developed bad behavior from having a mom who didn’t know how to train a dog. Justin had Crosby for approximately 4 weeks and did an outstanding job which allowed Crosby to be part of our family.
Justin established boundaries, commands given in the midst of chaos which Crosby clearly understood and spent time teaching me that consistency is what Crosby needed to become our dream dog.
I couldn’t be more thankful for my family and that Crosby is enjoying his life with us.
