The Ayzenberg family 1/2018
I was referred to Acme Canine through my vet at Dublin Veterinary Clinic and I cannot say enough on how pleased I am with their training services.
Laura Pakis is the owner and founder and she can do one-on-one training to individually work with you and your dog. This method helps because both the human and dog need to be trained to be able to work together. I have seen such a big improvement in Bella’s behavior since my initial meeting with Laura. It’s been amazing how much Bella has changed and is now listening to us when being called, I’m so happy I decided to choose Acme Canine for my pet training needs!
If you need a really good dog trainer and looking for behavior training, look no further than Acme Canine! They teach dog owners new tricks and it’s so good and worth your investment!
The Nunnally family 12/2017
Laura – Thank you and the same to you. Daisy is the most wonderful dog and we have you to thank for that. I always recommend you to any new dog owners I meet because you made such a difference in Daisy. Hope you have a healthy and happy New Year.
The Richmonds, Toledo 9/2017
“Thank you for the training materials. It made all the difference with changing our puppy’s behavior. Great stuff!”
The Healys, Dublin 9/2017
“Laura is a great trainer–not only for our puppy, but for us!!! She is very knowledgeable, kind and no nonsense. We have learned a lot!”
The Liimattas, Hilliard 10/2016
“As you know, Winnie has a mind of her own and I don’t want to mess up all this amazing progress she’s made. I deeply appreciate your receptiveness to all my questions and giving us tips that will help. I will definitely change up the routine, so it’s not a routine anymore. 🙂 We can’t thank you and acme enough!”
Zeitz family, Westerville 4/2016
“Every experience with ACME is filled with love, patience, support, and care. Maiden loves her visits there; the staff is always attentive, engaged, and we feel no reservations leaving our girl in their care. We’ve gone through their training program, and are better pet owners for the experience, and highly recommend their services to anyone and everyone!”
Dixie Bowen, Program Director Union County Master Gardener Association, Marysville 2/2016
“On behalf of the Union County Master Gardeners, I want to thank you for giving your presentation as part of our educational session. Dogs and gardens are a big part of life for several of us. We appreciate you taking time out of your schedule for us.”
Mullins family, Worthington 2/2016
“We have been here a week and my sister is very impressed with Annie’s new behavior. She went after a help dog in the airport, but nothing happened. She saw it from the mesh in the carrier and flipped over the carrier. My sister calls her training reform school and everyone laughs.”
Cousins family, Powell 2/2016
“We have given you a shout out on Facebook!! We couldn’t be happier with your company!! We will refer our friends!!”
Steve and Marijane Delaware Eldridge 5/2016
“The Services you have provided for obedience training and boarding through the years have been much appreciated. You were there at the beginning. Your contribution to her health and well-being over these last 12 years have added to her quality of life.”
Berberick family, Lewis Center 12/2015
“Our dog had his first ever boarding experience over Thanksgiving and he had a blast. We were updated with emails, photos and phone calls. He came home and slept soundly. He got to play with many other dogs under close supervision. We LOVE Acme Canine!!!! We feel comfortable with our “baby” in the staff’s capable hands. We had him trained through Acme and he sometimes attends doggy day care. He pulls us to their door. Now that says something!”
D. Lauria, Lewis Center 12/15
“Laura was wonderful with my dog and me. Super knowledgeable and great training structure.”
K. Kenney, Powell 12/15
“ACME saved the day and took Rylie over Thanksgiving! She also did the residency training program 2 years ago and is fully trained off leash! A wonderful program!”
The Helts, Powell, 11/15
“You go above and beyond to make sure Kevin is happy while he is in your care. I never worry about leaving him with you. I love the updates, I love that he makes new friends, and I love that you love to have him! Thank you so much!”
The DeCenzos, Columbus, 10/15
“We used Acme to train our mutt. We used the 10 day board and train program. We received updates daily via email and even a post card. We’ve already noticed a difference in our dog. We received a take home packet giving us everything we’d need to help continue training, as well as a training assessment that really shed some light on our dog’s personality and insecurities. Laura knows her stuff – and she seems to genuinely care!”
The Barrys, Powell, 10/15
“Our puppy, Winnie, loved staying at Acme Canine. They were so attentive to her and the needs of an active 4 month old puppy. She even had some training during her stay. We will absolutely use them again.”
Laura and Team -
“Thank you so much for selecting Gibbs and Donoso as Acme Canine’s October dog(s) of the month. They are who they are because of the great foundation you provided to them as young pups. We had the easy job of reinforcing your work and giving them endless love and reasons to wag their tails.”
The Jones, Westerville 10/15
“We are honored by your recognition of the boys and look forward to the boys continued nurturing by the Acme family of professionals.”
The Walkers, 10/15 New Albany
“I must say…I am overly impressed with Acme Canine! Thank you for everything!”
The Rifkins, Powell, 10/15
“Pancho had a great sleep over at acme canine this past weekend. She always has fun with the dogs and the personnel is always super attentive.”
The Jones, Westerville, 10/15
“Acme Team – Thank you for recognizing Gibbs & Donoso as dogs of the month. It’s ironic that you did it on the six year anniversary of us seeking you out to train “our new puppies”. We still laugh at Laura’s analysis of Donoso being shy and smart and of Gibbs being a free spirit. At just 5 months, Laura nailed their personalities. Through the residency training program and follow ups the boys continue to be well behaved and a real joy in our family. Thanks again”
The Kennedys, New Albany, 9/15
“They love coming to “camp”!! Thank you to all who help make their stay such fun!”
The Cochrans, Westerville, 8/15
“It is silly how much we worry about them when they are not with us. I am particularly grateful for the pics of them with their new friends. They don’t have the opportunity to mix with many dogs in our neighborhood, so seeing them with other pooches is wonderful. My sister is coming for this weekend and will be bringing her dog, Gracie, a dog her husband found near death on a nearby road. Gracie is now completely healthy, well behaved, and sweet. It will be good to see how Ellie and Sydney handle having another pooch in their house. Thanks again for taking such good care of Ellie and Sydney.”
