Wonderful Dog Trainers, Incredible People!
Matt and Ashley are not only wonderful dog trainers but incredible people as well. They are both extremely kind, fun and easy to work with. They both possess a great amount of knowledge about dogs, such as how to control various behaviors and how to communicate effectively. I reached out to them this past March to inquire about training my 3-year old Cockapoo (Tillie) to become a therapy dog. Thanks to their amazing training experience, Tillie passed her AKC Canine Good Citizens test after 12 sessions and is now on her way to becoming an AKC Therapy Dog. I highly recommend using Control is Key for any level of dog training you may be seeking!
From a Good Puppy to a Great Dog!
I enrolled my 7-month mini golden doodle, Denver in Control is Key’s two-week Board and Train program. I can’t say enough good things about my experience (especially after trying two other training programs that I was very disappointed in…)
During the program, Matthew kept me updated on a daily basis with photos, videos, phone calls and facetime calls. Denver learned so much and came home happy, healthy and very well trained. She is listening so well and is a joy to be with.
The best thing about this program is that Matthew and Ashley accomplish all of the training goals with so much love, affection and nurturing toward the dogs they’re working with. This balance was really important to me. Denver was well cared for the entire two weeks while learning so much!
I highly recommend Control is Key…no doubt about it!
Great training for puppies AND owners
Matt and Ashley had our new Aussiedoodle puppy, Roxie, for a 3 week board and train. Matt kept us informed of all of Roxie’s progress the entire time he had her and gave weekly summaries. He set her up on a schedule, potty trained her, taught her basic commands, and taught her how to walk on a leash. Even after driving 5 hours to bring her to us, he spent time with our family to teach us how to continue working with her. Matt was always available for questions during our transition. Control Is Key totally exceeded our expectations.
Absolutely the best!
Matthew and Ashley helped us with our formerly unruly Frenchie. After having Toby for 4 months, we quickly realized we would need help with bad habits both human and canine.
Toby came out of the experience with leash manners, people manners, door manners and in general was happier. We came out of the experience with realistic expectations and the confidence need to be the head of our pack.
The biggest transformation was seen when we were able to have Toby off leash with children from our neighborhood running around and playing while he waits patiently to be allowed to join.
Truly a wonderful experience and we can’t thank and recommend Matthew enough.
Seems like magic, but it's just good quality dog training!
My beloved pit/boxer mix Brighton was already a sweetie, but had become pretty reactive to other dogs, especially on walks. She did a two-week board and train program with Matthew and his team, and the difference was almost magical. He did an amazing job not only training Brighton, but training me to make it stick afterwards (which is of course the goal!). Now she stays attentive to commands no matter the stimulation. Matthew combined professional and effective dog training with a care for my dog that was above and beyond, and his availability and follow-up after made all the difference. I would recommend Control Is Key to ANYONE!
