SD is a bit of a far stretch from where I reside but there’s a reason as to why I would keep coming back to Kristin and Ari for training and boarding for Oscar. They are amazing trainers and people that you can truly trust your dog with. Oscar and I worked with Ari in a group course prior and will always try to attend their group activities they offer alumni. It’s a lifelong resource with them and I am always able to get some insightful information back from them that will help me and my dog. I’ve sent Oscar to Kristin for boarding will not hesitate to do so again. Kristin was also a big supporter into getting Oscar into dock diving and we have so much fun while building confidence for my big insecure dog. I can not recommend them enough, just wished I was more local!

We love Shades of Blu! We have trained our pup, Benson with them since he was 3 months old (he’s now 3 years old). With their help Ben is e-collar trained, crate trained, amazing on place, great with our son, and is a well-rounded/confident dog. There are very few people I trust to leave Benson with, but I always feel confident leaving him with Kristin, Ari, or Felicia. You can’t find anyone better than these three!

I enrolled my dog Tater in day training with Arianna Towns and she worked wonders!! Tater is a small terrier mixed breed (15 lbs) and I was nervous she wouldn't take to e-collar training. I told Ari my main goal for Tater was to go hiking off-leash and have good recall. Also to help with some crate and separation anxiety. Tater now is great off-leash and we go hiking and to parks regularly! She also is great when I have to leave her at home and only whines just a little then settles in. Within the first week Tater was walking like a dream on a slip lead and by the second week was amazing with a small prong collar. As the e-collar was introduced, Ari made sure everything Tater learned on the leash was transferable to the e-collar including recall. She also taught Tater "place" and it works amazing when I bring her to work with me and she can stay at my desk without me having to worry. Seriously couldn't recommend Ari and Shades of Blu enough! Great results and Ari worked with me to meet my price range! 10/10!!

Kristin has absolutely transformed our Bootsey. Boots struggled a lot with confidence and self aware. Now not only is he confident in himself but us as owners are confident in him. He has been put in the best hands with Kristin and Ari and we couldn’t thank them enough. She was always keeping us updated and sending us messages throughout his board and stay. She has set us up with success and more for further training. The e-collar does wonders when trying to teach a dog the commands.

I cannot recommend Shades of Blu and Ari enough! May-Belle is my third Belgian and most stubborn reactive dogs I've seen, a three-year-ish rescue I pulled out of the shelter hours before her set euthanasia time, with no backstory and no name, and while I was able to get some training down along with her name in a few months she quickly proved above my skill level, breaking out of prong collars, and lunging at any and everything non-human that moved. Que Ari coming in, and after 4 weeks I can comfortably say May Belle is on the right path and is far more manageable. With her passion, love and commitment to these animals and you, you would be hard pressed to find a better, humane trainer.
