"Greg Sharp of Gateway Dog Training® is fantastic! I chose to board and train with Greg because I wanted my frisky one year old lab to have retriever training and I didn't want to send him off to basically live in a kennel for four to ten months. At Gateway, Boomer lived in the house with Greg and his family, so not only did he get superior reward-based retriever training (very hard to find!) he also had daily reinforcement of his home manners and obedience, as well as daily love and attention from four loving people! Not to mention lots of play time with other dogs. Boomer came back to me happy, healthy and noticeably calmer and better behaved. His retrieving is spot on, and his home manners are significantly better--he is an angel and everyone has noticed! He is still happy and fun and energetic, but so much more responsive to direction and just MUCH better behaved overall. It is clear that Boomer was trained with love and positive reinforcement, and not compulsive methods. And the best part was that Greg included two-one hour 'after training' sessions to teach myself and my family how to work with Boomer ourselves at home. I would HIGHLY recommend Greg for in-home boarding, obedience or retriever training without hesitation! If you cannot be with your dog, this is the kind of environment you want him or her to be in. I give Gateway Dog Training® an A plus on all counts!"
