Such a wonderful family that is extremely talented. Mary is such a wonderful person, that has a deep respect for our nation's heroes. She not only trains your pets, she trains you. Thank you for everything you have done for my 6 dogs.

 I would highly recommend Mattox Dog Training Academy. Mary is an amazing dog trainer. She has helped us with our dogs turning them into calm and enjoyable members of our family.

 Mary took our unruly high spirited German Shepherd pup from a dog who wanted to nip, jump, and be the alpha to a wonderful family dog with great manners! With two little girls at home we needed help and that’s just what we got and more! I don’t know what we would have done without her help! Thank you to Mary and her son Chance for everything!

 Best loving training opportunity for you and your dog, training that makes sense from people who love dogs and know what they are doing! We have had two different breeds of dogs trained by Mattox Dog Training Academy, they are very knowledgeable plus they have a great facility. I highly recommend Mattox Dog Training Academy.

Mary and Chance are wonderful, loyal, knowledgeable, dependable, dedicated trainers who have changed our lives by taking on our family dog,Luna, and teaching her manners. Luna was a great dog, but had no manners or boundaries, and we did not have the time to train her properly. Luna is a whole new dog who waits for permission to eat dinner, and lets me enter and exit doors before her. She listens and behaves, and she just turned a year old. If it weren’t for Mary and what shedoes, we would not have been able to keep Luna as our pet. Now I cannot imagine life without her!

Mary was obviously meant to do this job and have this business. You can tell she puts her heart and soul into all of the dogs in her care. She cares about their health and safety more than anything, making sure they get the natural nutrition they need and that they are comfortable and happy, along with her dog training skills that are like no one else! She taught me so much, as a dog owner, that I am personally so much better off after learning from her. I am so thankful and grateful for the time and effort they both put into Luna.
