"Ruth has such a connection with dogs. They sense her unconditional love for them and react to her obediently and positively.  Her methods are solid and logical and work every time with consistency from the owner.  My dog was very well trained by the end of the six week course. She is amazing."        S. Murphy, Charlotte, NC

"Ruth is awesome! She takes a professional approach, gets to know each pet, and takes the time to understand her clients' needs. From there, she devises a strategy and works to help you and your pet. I love that Ruth clearly loves animals and works with a passion to help people and pets to have a great relationship." R. Mangiapane, Davidson, NC
"I met Ms. Ruth the day we brought home our puppy.  I had no clue what to do and fate led her to me. We talked, exchanged information, and the rest is history.  Ms. Ruth trained our baby and she keeps her for us several times a year when we travel. Just a beautiful person that has become a member of the family. She is the best!" C. Tarver, Charlotte, NC
"We contacted Ruth to fine tune some minor training problem areas that we had with our almost one year old Goldendoodle. Ruth not only did an excellent job of helping my husband and I understand how to communicate effectively with our dog, Bella, but helped us create an even deeper bond with her.  Dubbed, "Auntie Ruth", Bella now boards with Ruth on a regular basis and we love that Bella receives so much individual attention and love on her stays".  L. Dungan, Huntersville, NC
"With the adoption of my boy, Major, I came to find myself wondering where to turn for training. It had been ten years since my last experience with dog training. After much online searching and many phone calls, I decided to go with A Dog's Best Friend Training. I have to say, WOW, what a great decision.  This lady really knows her stuff.
Ruth is personable, intelligent, and so good with dogs and people. The class became a high point of our week. 
Ruth is thorough, gives individual attention, and is great at follow up and after care. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, honest, and caring trainer, look no further...Ruth is for you".
