What Our Clients Have to Say...
"I was thrilled with the progress that my dogs made with Roc Solid dog training. I thought my dogs were trained well enough prior to the class, but the classes really improved my dog's behaviors and more importantly, taught me how to interact with my dogs to get the most out of them. I found this class in my local Park District directory and I thought it was going to be a superficial attempt at training. I was completely wrong. The trainers are friendly, knowledgeable, and deliberate with everything they do. There is a right way to train your dog and considering the results I have had, I'd say Roc Solid knows the formula for success. I beam with pride when people comment on how well behaved my dogs are... they are! Thanks to my trainers Ed and Nick, you guys were great!"
"I just wanted to tell you that we have been really impressed with the class thus far and the results we are seeing. I was taking Ruxon for a walk the other day and I had a guy stop his car at the intersection we were waiting to cross and tell me, "He is going to be a great dog! I train dogs for a living, and I can tell that he will be a great dog based on what I'm seeing." There is no way I would have gotten that compliment from a complete stranger a few weeks ago."

I just wanted to start the new year off right and thank some people for the great things I have. We have achieved some great successes in the past year because of your help with the training classes. We have been invited to several homes for short stays and we were asked to bring Scooby with. They said he is so well mannered and love to have him around. He is also a great playmate for their pets. He goes to all my son’s college cross country and track meets and the kids just adore him. He goes on warm up & cool down runs with them too! My daughter competes in horse shows, so he goes with whenever possible to those too. He loves riding in the golf carts and sharing apples with his horse friends. We have achieved ultimate success with not being muzzled at the vet anymore, no fighting with baths (which he gets once a week), he just walks right in, and now being able to cut nails on all four paws with no hassle at all! He is definitely not as well trained as Max & Gus, but he certainly brightens every day for us. He is so easy to take care of and have around. So just one more big Thank You for giving us the ground work to have such a wonderful pet. We wish you and your family a very happy, healthy New Year!"
"We’re always rushing in and out at class so haven’t gotten the chance yet, but just wanted to thank you so much for holding this class. We have noticed a tremendous difference in both dogs beyond what I was expecting. They both (and Candyce and I) have a lot of work to do, but our progress is delightful and encouraging each week."
"Due to the slow economy and the cost of dog training classes, I chose to take the lessons through the park district because of the reasonable price. I wasn't sure that I would get the best quality of lessons through a reasonably priced park district program, but decided to give it a try. I was wrong. The lessons were excellent. I feel that they surpassed what I have heard from people taking lessons elsewhere and even private lessons. Kudos and Thanks to Roc Solid Obedience!"
"As someone who prefers Big Dogs, I need obedience training that is Roc Solid!! Like the name implies, Nick’s training methods are just that. Tango has never been more confident and happy!! Nick is firm yet patient & truly understands that any dog can be obedient & a great family member."

"We want to thank you both for a great experience with Ella. She's made a complete turn around and it wouldn't have happened without your help!"
Chris and Linda
"Hi Nick - Just wanted to share with you that I took Mac to my daughter's softball game last night, tons of people and dogs, and he was so well-behaved that my family did not believe that he was the same dog!!! All thanks to you!"
"We have never owned a dog before and I can't imagine trying to raise one without the knowledge you taught us."
"Thank you for all your guidance and support. We learned a lot and truly enjoyed you class. Wrigley is going great."

"Thank you so much for all your effort with Ozzie!"
Denise and Stacy.
"I am not sure where we would be if we had not found you and your training. Thanks for all the extra help and guidance from you."
"Nick, thanks for your help with training Cooper. Before your 6-week class, just walking him on a leash was such a chore. Now he is a pleasure to walk, he listens and is excited to train."
"My dog improved drastically over the course of the class. He is no longer afraid of other people or dogs."
"Thank you for your patience and support for Elvis and I. The quality of life for my entire family has improved tremendously since you have helped me train him."
"Great class and instructor team. I would recommend this class to anyone with a dog. Great results in just six weeks."
"Nick, thank you for your help with Nala. I couldn't believe how much different she has become after learning your techniques in just 6 weeks!"
"Socs is doing great. My son had a friend over for lunch and he was able to stay out with us. In the past I would have put him in his crate"
"I wanted to tell you of Rolo's success with people coming into my house. I have been utilizing the place board very often. But, in the past, we have had issues with him not listening to us."
"Last night Rolo was on his place board, in the family room close to the door. When my friend came I told him to place. He stayed on the place board!!!! His tail kept going but he did not come off. I was so happy! We even went into the other room and he stayed on the place board. When she was getting ready to leave we talked a few minutes at the door - Rolo fell asleep on his place board. When my friend left I gave him the free command and he came to me.
Thank you for giving us success!!!!!"
"Thank you so much for all you have done for Scout and our family!! He is amazing and we can't thank you and your family enough for all of the love and training you gave him these past three weeks. We just went on a walk and it was amazing! We even bumped into another dog and he stayed by my side. It was simply the best!!! Can't wait to continue his training - to anyone reading this WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND Roc Solid Obedience!!"---Sara Boucek
