Success Stories

Look who’s talking about us!


My husband and I were going on a 10 day cruise and knew we were going to have to board Gabby while we were gone which can be very costly. Then I thought you know she really needs some training so why not kill 2 birds with one stone. I really didn’t know where to start and looked online for obedience training near me. D.O.G. OF JAX came up right away. Location was perfect as we were flying out of Jacksonville.

I emailed Anne and she responded right away and answered all my questions. We signed Gabby up for the 10 day board and train. How convenient right? I really didn’t know what to expect when we picked Gabby up at the end of the 10 days. I was amazed. This is a 7 month Golden Doodle who didn’t listen to anything we said. Jumped on everyone and when we got there to pick her up it was like a new dog. She was so calm.

In 10 days she learned how to sit, lay down, go to her place, wait at the door, walks great on a leash, leaves it, and stays. I was truly impressed with this company and will recommend them to everyone. The cost may seem pricy but don’t look at it as just training. They are giving them a place to stay. Feeds them. Walks them. Plays with them. And trains. Definitely well earned. We thank you for all your help and Gabby thanks you because she gets more treats now. 🙂

This is an awesome group and Anne is a very educated instructor. I look forward to always continuing my puppy’s education with her help. The facility is always clean and organized. It is nice to train in a covered air-conditioned building.

I brought my stubborn puppy to a basic obedience class, and Anne was so helpful. Very kind, knowledgeable, and resourceful. My dog is not food or treat motivated, and is easily intimidated. Anne spent the time to help us figure out what motivates him! I have a whole new dog!

I arrived at D.O.G Jax with two hyper puppies! Both under a year old with a handful of issues each. Pulling on walks, barking, jumping, ignoring commands to come/ drop objects they shouldn’t have. Anne was more than helpful in answering all questions and helping with all of my puppy problems. After a 6 week basic obedience class my puppies have learned to walk nicely on the leash (and not drag me all over town), how to sit, lie down, stay, come, drop it, and so much more. The best part of my training was it did not end on the last day of class, with any questions Anne is only a phone call/ text away!

I can’t say enough good things about this place! Anne Baxter is a very experienced and highly qualified trainer. She goes above and beyond to make sure your dog gets the attention and training they need. Her prices are VERY reasonable and the class sizes are small; she provides a variety of days/times to work around your busy schedule. Anne really cares about the well-being of your dog, her facility is well maintained and she takes proper precautions to ensure a safe and healthy environment for you and your pets. She takes her time explaining the do’s and dont’s so that any new person can come into class and understand what is going on. She also provides handouts of everything covered in class and makes sure you have all the information you need to continue your training at home. My husband and I took our 8 week old German Shepherd puppy to her puppy obedience class 8 weeks ago and since then we have enrolled into the next level course and will continue training to advanced level. If you are looking for an experienced professional that can turn your dog’s behavior around in a positive way this is the place to go!

Also, I wanted to thank you personally for allowing my husband and I to borrow one of your exercise pens until we could afford to buy our own. And thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule yesterday to educate me on the different collars, what to do, how to handle him and getting him fitted properly. Most people probably would have just sold me whatever collar, but you took the time to explain the different ones, what they do and how to use them. You truly do care and that is why I will always go to you! Thank you!

My husband and our dog Roger a Berger Picard, recently completed one of Anne’s classes. He said the class was great. We see a big change in Roger since he finished the class. We highly recommend it.

I took my German Shepherd to D.O.G. of Jax because he needed some help from poor socialization on my part, and a bad trainer. He had six lessons with Anne Baxter and he is much better. She showed me some great things to work on with him and they are working when I apply them. He is a much better dog because of Anne’s training. And we became best of friends!

The facility was always welcoming and cool (great for the summer heat. Not sure if I met all the staff, but for the one I did they all were very nice and easy to talk to. Anne the instructor is AMAZING! Very knowledgeable and patient with both me and my Enso. I can’t wait to take more of her classes and hopefully become a yearly member. All my class mates were great too. Don’t think I could have asked for a better experience ( tho growing up with dogs this was my first time doing anything like this)!

Thank You Anne and Team!❤

I have taken multiple classes with Anne and loved every second. My biggest issue was my crazy yappy mini Aussie/Border collie mix. After taking basic and puppy class, she is so much more calm now

My Labrador puppy started going to private training and puppy classes at 12 weeks! He loves it and we’ve both learned so much! He’s now 9 months and we continue to get great support and training. Highly recommend Anne as a trainer!

Anne is absolutely amazing! She and her team have given us the training, tools, and support needed to turn our puppy into a superstar! I couldn’t be happier with her!

Anne, just wanted to thank you again for my wonderful German Shepherd, Emma, whom I brought to you as a demon dog. She would not walk on a leash, or she did not know any commands. You taught her so many thing in a short period of time. You are always there if I have any questions, You are the best.

My older Yorkie “Peanut” sure benefited from taking the Basic training. I totally was blown away with the results one get with your dog. I will recommend her to all my friends . Will surely miss going to school with my Peanut now that lass has ended. Bless Anne and the great work she does for our canine buddies.

We LOVE D.O.G.! We’ve been taking classes in Conformation and Obedience with D O.G. for over 3 years now. We have our first Champion, we have our Canine Good Citizenship and the CGC Advanced for our dogs, and we’re about to have our first titled dog in Beginner Novice Obedience and we owe it all to the training, guidance, and support we have found in this Obedience Group! We are excited to keep learning and growing and starting future ventures with this Team!

Anne Baxter is one of the best trainers in the dog world. She trains with enthusiasm, care, and integrity. Her classes are informative and personalized to the extent that if a dog or owner needs special help she is always available. Thanks for all of your help and I look forward to training with you again soon
