I highly recommend 4 Paws K9 Training

“If anyone is in need of a trainer, I highly recommend 4 Paws K9 Training. Before hiring Bill at 4 Paws my Bully was aggressive with anxiety, after his 6 weeks of training Prosciutto follows his commands and is now able to go in public with no anxiety of aggression. We took him to Tractor Supply and he let people approach and pet him, before Bill at 4 Paws Prosciutto would have taken your hand off if you came close.”

Bill has a gift

“Bill has a gift, he trains us to do the best for our dogs. Bill understands behaviors and after just 6 classes our beloved Cooper is calmer and behaving. I can’t say enough”

He is so easy to book with and extremely friendly and personable

“We were referred to Bill through friends and couldn’t have been happier. He is so easy to book with and extremely friendly and personable (which can be iffy with people in a pet industry). He confirms appointments with calendar invites and shows up on time. He also teaches and trains the humans, which is the key, all while learning about the pet(s) and working closely with them. Our pup has made such improvements, specifically, Bill helped him overcome his fear of getting into the car. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s up to us to continue what he has taught and shown us.”

Would highly recommend Bill to anyone who needs a little or a lot of help with their dog

We found Bill through our Vet, Dr. Cardoza at Big River. Murphy is a great dog but lacked socialization due to the pandemic. We also had difficulty training him as he was NOT food-driven, which is what we were used to with Labs. Additionally, he had a bad habit of running out the door to explore the neighborhood, which did not sit well with my neighbors. Bill arrived, got right to work, and as stubborn as Murphy was, Bill would not let him win. After the very first session, we noticed a major difference in him. Not only does Bill train the dog, but he also corrects the owners! Now, we work regularly with Murphy using the skills and techniques Bill has taught us, and we have a much better-behaved dog who follows commands and recalls!

Would recommend: Yes.  Would highly recommend Bill to anyone who needs a little or a lot of help with their dog. Training is an everyday task so if you as the aren’t willing to put in the work, well…

I think you will be very satisfied

I have a Cane Corso that is very stubborn, It took Bill about 20 minutes to break him and he stopped fighting him and started to learn what Bill was teaching him. He still needs repetition but he is learning very fast. I can’t imagine that he tastes very good but Rocco is licking him all the time. I can’t wait to see him when we are all done.

I think you will be very satisfied

I would strongly recommend Bill for training in any situation

I have had pleasure to work with Bill Tweedy when he trained my Black Lab/Boxer mix rescue Buddy. He was afraid of men and with Bill’s patience and persistence he acts almost normal around men now lol

He loves me and now lets me pet him walk and feed him, he actually greets me at the door now with lots of hugs and licks when i come home from work.

I would strongly recommend Bill for training in any situation.

​I would 100% recommend Bill for any doggy needs!

We rescued a Husky/Hound mix puppy a week before I gave birth to our son. I definitely bit off more than I could chew and Bill came in and rescued me.

Within an hour we had a completely different dog who listened to us and stopped running out the door the second it opened. Our Riley also suffered from separation anxiety that with tricks from learned from Bill has been doing great.

​I would 100% recommend Bill for any doggy needs! Our Riley also loves him!​

I had Bill come over for 5 sessions and he is like a new dog

We rescued a 6 month old hound mix and he was afraid of everyone except me. I was at a loss of what to do. I have always had dogs and this was a behavior I never dealt with. I had Bill come over for 5 sessions and he is like a new dog, he is happier and he is so much better than he was before. We will continue to work with him now that we have learned to deal with his anxiety. We will stay in touch and I know who to call if I need some guidance!

Thank you so much Bill!

I adopted my dog Zeke

I adopted my dog Zeke from a rescue . He had a bad case of stranger danger. After adopting him I found out that I needed surgery and my sister was coming from out of state to help me. I hired Bill to help me with Zeke . It was the best decision. Zeke now loves everyone. Bill solved my problem with positive reinforcement and love. When Bill left at end of sessions, Zeke would sit at door and cry for him. I swear Bill can speak dog, he is amazing. He is the new dog whisperer.
