Meet the Team

I had the best experience ever! Storm did an OUTSTANDING JOB! I never thought about the support they provide during after and even when something came for me. I could not thank her and this team enough!!! They were so easy to work it. This has been the best trained dog I have ever had. I could not have done it with them!

Amazing results! Andy and I can't thank Emily and Storm enough for all that they provided to help our Great Dane pup, Stevie, grow in confidence. We live in a high rise condo where simply going outside requires an elevator ride and a lot of distractions. Before her Board & Train Program, I was becoming nervous taking her out for walks due to her reactivity and fearfulness in many situations. She came home confident and well-mannered. Of course, this is not a 'quick fix'. Stevie has been home for two weeks, and we are working diligently daily to maintain the excellent training that Emily provided. Highly recommend!

I have waited 3 months to write this because I wanted to ensure that I could write and honest & positive review.

Plain and simple... The best decision that my boyfriend and I have ever made. We sent our then, 5 month old; wild, uncontrollable, & hard headed Cane Corso/ Pit puppy for the 2 week board and train. Her results have been life changing. Storm was absolutely amazing with our girl. Having a large breed puppy, our number one concern was her self control. Rivers before & after is like night & day. We have 100% control, trust, and confidence in our now 107 lbs 8 month old puppy. River is a completed different dog. We also have a 8 year old rescue pit whom River used to terrorize. She was out of control and simply a pest. After training, Rivers puppy tendencies have resolved. We are now able to enjoy nightly walks with the two of our dogs without running into absolute haywire. We are confident with her being off leash and still obeying our commands. Life is so so different now without stressing our out of control puppy. Thank you Storm for your expertise, knowledge and love for our River girl.

I am a small animal veterinarian outside of Charlotte and I am happy to enthusiastically recommend Storm K9 for training. We decided to get a boxer puppy three months before our second child was born. Shortly afterwards, we had a toddler, a newborn, a very energetic puppy, and very little time to devote to training. Bruno was never a bad puppy - but he struggled to settle in the chaotic environment. We reached out to Storm and she listened to the needs of our family. She worked with Bruno for 10 days to help make him successful in our house. What a difference! He's been home a few days now and we can already see significant progress. While Bruno is still a high energy Boxer puppy, he has learned impulse control and is able to settle much easier in the house (which has been a huge win for a family with a toddler and a newborn!). He seems to understand the concept of "inside play" and "outside play" which has been so important for our family. We love that Storm provided us with nightly updates with pictures and answered any questions that we had. We knew that Bruno was getting the love, attention, and care that he would at home while learning some very valuable manners! Storm provided an in home lesson with our family to ensure we were all confident in our ability to continue Bruno's training here at home. We are grateful to Storm and Emily for giving us the foundation we needed to help Bruno be a more enjoyable member of our family.

Emily did a fantastic job helping us with training our crazy 10 month old Labrador Retriever Jack! She was very patient and I feel like we have a strong foundation for the future with him. Thanks so much Emily!

 

After one of our dogs started developing some behavior issues, we scheduled 4 lessons. Our trainer, Storm, was extremely knowledgeable and patient. We felt it was important to work with the dog ourselves and she took time to work with the dog and with us to ensure success. We have been very pleased with the results and are able to take our dog many more places and enjoy more activities with him as a result. We highly recommend!

My two pups loved spending two weeks with Storm learning new behavioral expectations and skills. She responded to every text and call and sent lots of photos of them for me while they were in her care. My husband and I are now able to have more control over our dogs behavior while still allowing them to be free willed dogs. We also love being able to lean on her for any questions or concerns after training was over. Highly recommend!

Storm is a great trainer! She took our 8 month old Lhasa, Jason, from totally untrained to completely trained in 2 weeks. He was having some issues with anxiety/aggression and needed confidence. She built up the confidence and worked through his anxiousness. I could tell from the start that she cared about him and his well-being. She was also confident in her ability to help him due to her expertise with animal behavior and she delivered! She's also great with responsiveness since training has ended any time we have additional questions. Overall, a fantastic experience with Storm as the perfect trainer for our pup!

We are so happy with the training our Gnarly received from Storm. Our communication is so much better now and she is really blossoming. It was worth EVERY PENNY. Thanks Storm!

My dogs were crazy wildlings before I took them! On walks, they would zig zag, pull, lunge, tangle the leashes around us and each other. It was so stressful to attempt to walk them around the neighborhood. After being trained with Storm, they became two different dogs. Walking is a breeze! It’s such a relief to take them for a walk and not be stressed about what they’re going to do next. They still act like the silly dogs we love but walking is no longer a task, it’s fun!

Board and train program highly recommended! It's absolutely amazing work that corrects so many issues within a short amount of time! Trains the dog, provides teaching to the owner, and provides support whenever needed thereafter!

Hannah Pipes Taylor

Just picked up our Goldendoodle from his board and train with Storm, WOW! I can't say enough good things about this. You can tell she loves dogs and does her job exceptionally well! He was happy to see me and sad he was leaving his new friends. Thank you Storm

Highly recommend the 2 week board and train program. Our 8 month old Lhasa was having aggressive incidents and we needed expert help. Jason has been reformed to a well behaved boy! We now have the tools and education to help him. Storm is amazing! She cared for Jason as if he was her own. She communicated daily with texts, photos and video. Storm has made herself available to answer texts and questions ever after training. She wants the best for the pups and it shows. We are forever grateful.

Lindsey Stoni

Storm was amazing with my 4 year old lab mix and my golden retriever! I was so nervous about leaving my pups with anyone. She made sure I was comfortable and gave me updates daily. I loved that she wanted to know what we really needed to work on for our lifestyle and it wasn't a one size fits all. We went from having 2 very protective dogs that I couldn't take anywhere, to taking them everywhere! Since training, we can walk in pet stores and not even need a leash! My dogs are so much happier now that they get to go places and I am so much happier because they behave. The best decision we have ever made with our pups.
