We enrolled our German Shepherd puppy, Titan, in Matt & Christie’s Puppy obedience class in the Summer of 2008 and continued our training with Thunderhawk Canine for both Basic and Intermediate classes. Titan obtained his Canine Good Citizen designation through Thunderhawk and we plan on doing additional Therapy and Trick training in the future.

We are so grateful to Thunderhawk Canine that we have even labeled Matt and Christie as Titan’s “stepparents!”  We feel the puppy training started Titan off on the right foot (or paw!) towards being socialized with other dogs and therefore he has never shown any sign of aggression towards other animals or people – we give Thunderhawk credit for that fact.

We have been so incredibly lucky Thunderhawk is Titan’s ‘home away from home’ if we have to be out of town. The anxiety of leaving Titan is nonexistent thanks to Thunderhawk.

Titan has been an extremely happy participant in Doggy Daycare with Thunderhawk twice a week for several years and we have been THRILLED! They pick him up before we go to work, and he is dropped off when we get home from work tired out and happy! A well-exercised dog is a well-behaved dog.

I have called Christie day and night with veterinary questions when Titan had medical issues.  She answered every question I had and came to the rescue countless times to ease my mind.

For anyone with a dog, whether a puppy or adult, it is so crucial to enroll your four-legged loved one in Thunderhawk’s training program because it teaches socialization and positive reinforcement and discipline. So many people tell me their dog is ‘not good around other dogs.’  Thanks to Thunderhawk, we never have to utter those words because our dog is better off because he received positive training and exposure to other dogs during training and daycare at Thunderhawk.

Titan isn’t the only one who received excellent training – Matt and Christie taught us, the owners, how to become better parents to our pet.  This leads to a higher quality of life for our dog. We cannot thank Thunderhawk Canine enough for all the time, effort, love and attention they have provided our pup Titan – we can truly say our German Shepherd is amazing around all animals, babies, children, adults and the elderly, all thanks to the training and socialization Thunderhawk Canine has provided. I cannot recommend them highly enough.  We have never met two people so dedicated to not only their own animals but also to the animals they help train, board, and exercise

Look at Gryphon rocking his place in the midst of dinner prep and Christmas decorating!! …. We had a large family gathering for Thanksgiving and he was such a champ. He never moved off of his place. I actually think he’s sending some customers your way because of it.

We took our lab to Thunderhawk for training a little over 9 months. These last 9 months have been amazing. She’s such a happy dog because we know how to communicate with her so that we’re all on the same page. Thunderhawk changed our lives and made our whole family love our dog even more! Thanks to Christie and her team for an amazing job and the work they do.

“We adopted a 10 month old puppy, Cletus, from a rescue group. He had been a stray; therefore he had no discipline. He showed food aggression toward our other dog and was much more than we could handle. We could have returned him but we committed to this dog and wanted to do everything we could to make it work. We contacted ThunderHawk Canine and took him in for an assessment. They assured us they could help. We enrolled Cletus in their 4 week in-board training program. Four weeks later he came home as a different dog. He loves his dog sibling, shows no food aggression and is very obedient – one of the best dogs we’ve ever had! Two years later we can’t imagine life without him. I highly recommend this company to anyone who has a dog with issues or if you just want obedience training for your dog. They are the best!”

“Best decision I ever made was to entrust Christie and those at Thunderhawk with Miss Tiller. Tiller has been going to Thunderhawk for daycare for more than a few years. She LOVES it and you can tell they love her. Thank you for helping Miss Tiller be the best dog for us!”

“Took my pup to the puppy class and the next class up, as well as had him at the kennel while on vacation. Very great training and love and support from all the staff. Couldn’t recommend any higher!”

Trina Slinger

“Took my dog to obedience class and it was great! We both had fun and we both learned a lot! They were patient with both of us 🙂
I would highly recommend them for any class or function.”

I have 2 Alaskan Malamutes that were rehomed with me at almost 3 years of age. Both had been spoiled couch potatoes. When it was time for intermediate obedience I took each to Thunderhawk Canine’s classes. The classes were both fun and serious. Lots of positive reinforcement (mostly for the dogs) and good corrections for the humans. My girl earned her Canine Good Citizenship as a result. We’ve also been involved with Thunderhawk in weight pulling and hope to be involved with them with Dock Diving. It’s great to do things with your dogs and that’s what Thunderhawk helps people to do.

Very caring and professional group. I recommend them highly.
