Brody's Boot Camp


"Daisy and I had a great time! I looked forward to our class every week. It was a time for just the two of us to bond. Daisy had a great time with Ann, all the other moms, and great dogs. I would recommend every dog lover to share this experience with their puppy."
- Ann Agnello, 2/14
"I was very satisfied with the training my owner received! He still needs work, but is doing his best and walks me most days and works on my training, and I’m training him to be a better dog owner. I think I’ll keep him!"
- Bella (Jim Allen), 12/16
"Ann is an incredible instructor! She is patient, yet pushes you and your dog. I loved the fact that her dog, Tasha, was the class assistant. It helped my dog seeing another dog in class following commands successfully."
- Melissa Aubin, 12/16
“Brody’s Boot Camp provides an excellent training experience for dogs and dog owners. I highly recommend these classes, both for the training and bonding that takes place. I’ve worked with two dogs in the program and both love coming and want to come back.”
- Cara Leigh Battaglia, 3/17
"This class takes the puppy stage from what can be somewhat frustrating, to enjoyable. I learned to bond and play and love our Maizie because we made our relationship easier by respecting each other. She loves me more because Ann made me a better 'parent'!"
- Cindee Booth, 3/16
"Brody’s Boot Camp gets a 10! Ann is a seasoned professional who cares about her clients. She helped us so much with specific problems and challenges we faced with our new rescue puppy. She saved our lives and we are a happy, functioning family."
- Fay Botham & Tahlia Fischer, 5/18
“We think our puppies have made good progress. As pet owners we learned a lot! We were happy to have all the additional material to review regarding pet ownership.”
- CJ & Mary Britt, 7/18
"This was a great opportunity for Bailey and I to bond and to experience training together. The support and encouragement kept us both motivated. We look forward to continuing the training journey together. Thank you, Ann and classmates, for being patient and understanding."
- Janet Clendenen, 3/16
"Ann has a great facility and provides exceptional guidance to the dog's owner in how to be a confident leader to your dog. A wonderful learning experience for all."
- Mark Collinsworth, 2/13
“Ann has the ability to know the needs of each dog/owner team and to address the best way to meet those challenges. Her love for each dog is evident in her classes, and they love her back. Our dog was too strong and stubborn to enjoy walking her prior to taking the class. Now we have wonderful , daily walks. Thank you, Ann, for teaching us and our pup how to be a good team.”
- Sue Connor,  5/17
"Brody’s Boot Camp is an amazing experience for those owners who wish to have a more intimate bond with their dogs. Ann gives you the tools, all you have to do is practice (with patience!) and watch as you and your dog form a closer relationship. The classes were awesome and we can’t thank Ann (and China!) enough for helping us and our dog, Maggie, get closer!"
- Andy & Jen Cornwell, 7/15
“If you do the ‘homework’ with your dog, you will not be disappointed.  Ann gives clear instruction and great feedback.  We look forward to attending the advanced class.” 
- Peggy Davidson, 7/17
“I’d recommend Brody’s Boot Camp for anyone interested in becoming closer to their dog and building both the skills and foundation for a safe and rewarding lifetime for you both. I feel confident that we have learned the basics and can build upon the training.” 
- Jamie Davis, 12/17
"Bringing Zorro to Brody's Boot Camp was the best thing we have ever done!  We learned how to be better dog owners and our bond with Zorro is stronger than ever.  We truly enjoyed going every week and working with the other dogs and owners.  Thank you, Ann."
- Ariel Denny, 10/13
“Our experience with Brody’s Boot Camp was invaluable. Dante is a happy-go-lucky pup, but has a hard time containing all of his excitement. The class gave us the tools (it was mostly me as an owner that needed the confidence) to have a better bond and a better behaved pup. We will truly miss our weekly classes.”
- Danielle DiDuro, 4/17
“Having a dog that had many owners before me, I adopted him from a shelter.  I wanted to be his last home.  In six short weeks, I have a well behaved dog; a dog that looks to me for guidance.  We have learned life-saving commands that are priceless!  This obedience class is very rewarding for both owner and dog.  Working at a veterinarian hospital, I see so many dogs getting disciplined with no direction of what the owner wants.  I also see dogs going to a shelter or being euthanized because they are ‘naughty’.  When asked if they ever did dog obedience, the answer is almost always ‘no’.  Such a shame when in such a small amount of time you can have a well behaved and well mannered dog!  Thank you, Ann, for helping save the lives of these beautiful souls.  Souls that just needed direction and encouragement.  You are awesome!” 
- Robin & Rocky Dietschler, 5/17
"Walter and I had a truly "transforming" experience during our six weeks of training at Brody's Boot Camp.  Ann's superior interpersonal skills allow her to personalize the lessons for each attendee.  She immediately "connects" with your dog and takes the extra time to customize the training to meet your needs for home life and schedules.  It didn't take long to realize that our dogs are all trainable… it is we humans who need to take the "lead" and do it!  During my training, Ann consistently provided clear instructions, guidance, and the motivation I needed to become a confident "dog Mom".  The result… Walter matured from an energetic, disobedient, and out of control puppy to an AKC Canine Good Citizen!  Best of all, during the process, Walter and I learned how to have fun together while growing in our bonds of respect and love!  Thank you, Ann!!!"
- Wendy Doyle, 10/13
“It has been a long time since I had a puppy and needed some assistance with my very energetic and smart Standard Poodle before he ruled me.  Ann provided the professional and positive training to help me gain the upper hand with Murphy.  Every class was fun and we both learned to work together and form that special bond that only a pet and pet parent can have.  I would recommend Brody’s Boot Camp all the way!  Thank you, Ann.”
- Joyce French, 7/17
"After trying two other training programs, we found Brody's Boot Camp to be by far the most effective and enjoyable! Thank you so much!"
- Tom, Emily & Lizzie Glover, 4/14
“Ann and the classes are so positive.  The lessons are systematic, purposeful, and fun!  Ann is a real expert who is very clear and direct.  All of the dogs progressed so much!  Highly recommended, and we want to do more classes with Ann.” 
- Jack & Deborah Harris, 4/17
“Your ability to see how dog and owner interact is excellent. Appreciate the non-competitive atmosphere and your willingness to help in the future, if needed. This is a great way to teach owners and their dogs that they can be good and safe members of the planet. Thanks also for the handouts - - excellent, permanent reference.” 
- Dan & Holly Harrison, 2/18
“Thank you for caring so much about our four-legged family members enough to correct the two-legged ones. Your passion for successful relationships between dogs and their families radiates during our classes and is remembered when class is over. You make us want our dogs to feel success and love.”  
- Jen Hayden, 10/17
“Time with your pet, learning along with your pet… this is truly an amazing class. Ann is tough and amazingly effective. This was not only a fun night out with your dog, but an education in training a respect for both of you, making every moment and movement count. At the end of the six week training, Daisy and I not only grew to know each other better, but we formed that bond with each other called unconditional love. I would highly recommend this class!! It’s addicting.”
- Carol Hendrickson, 10/16
“I have used Brody’s Boot Camp for all three of my dogs.  This was the best investment I have ever made.  We have taken both of her class levels and loved them both.  My dogs are better for it, and our relationship together is better also.  I would recommend this class to any dog owner.” 
- Tina House, 4/17
“Great opportunity for my dog to grow mentally and acclimate to social situations.  A good first stop in developing strong bonding and improving understanding/communication.” 
- Nancy Irlan, 6/17
"We truly enjoyed Brody's Boot Camp and feel that we now have what it takes to continue training. Our dog, Boone, was almost two when we began and we weren't sure what to expect. After just one class, we could see how easy it was (is) to train him. It just takes time and patience. We now see a new dog in him every day. Thank you, Ann!"
- Josie Kabat, 4/14
"We adopted a dog that came with “issues” and started biting our young children. Ann came and did a one-on-one session that completely turned things around and then we took her 6-week class. It has made a huge difference in our dog’s behavior and the way the whole family interacts with her. I would highly recommend both the 6-week class and a one-on-one basis for “dogs with issues” or any new members of the family."
- Joell Murney-Karsten & Lacey, 7/15
“Brody’s Boot Camp gave us the fundamentals to help train our dog and build a trusting relationship between us and our dog.”
- Melissa Kennedy, 2/18
"What an honor it was to work with you in training our most loved companion, Ukon. The knowledge and understanding you provided us has been so rewarding! It is so difficult to read Ukon and one of the biggest benefits we have gained by working with you has been to understand what dogs need and expect from us, by learning about how they think. Understanding the logic behind actions was such a tremendous skill for us. We cannot thank you enough. Your dedication and compassion towards the work you do does not go unnoticed. Thank you. We look forward to working with you soon."
- Cherie & Mark Klossner, 2/15
“So grateful for our experience at Brody’s Boot Camp. Our sweet, but very strong-willed puppy has made a complete transformation! With Ann’s personal attention, guidance, and patience, Molly and I learned so much and have grown to understand each other better. She has gained much more confidence, focus, and respect. Excited to continue in the Advanced/Fun Class!”
- Kim Kukiela, 4/18
“I would highly recommend Brody’s Boot Camp as it has been a great learning experience, not only for Smokey, but for myself as well.  I saw great progress, not only with Smokey, but the entire class as well!  Looking forward to pursuing an advanced class.  Thank you, Ann and Tasha!”
-  Mary Mandigo,  6/17
“Brody’s Boot Camp was recommended by our veterinarian and I can’t be more pleased in the results.  Our four year old, rescue dog came with various issues and has truly transformed into a much more workable dog.  He gets so excited when I get his leash out.  He just loves to go for walks and is much more people and other dog friendly.  Looking forward to the next set of classes.” 
-  Richard Martin, 7/17
“My puppy, Charlie, and I had a great relationship, but there was a lack of respect and understanding on both of our ends. I needed to be trained more than he did. Over the six weeks, we grew to understand each other just from a head nod and eye contact. I was excited every week before we went to class and during. Ann maintains a fun and respectable work space that is exciting for dogs and their owners. Having a small class also allows each dog and owner to receive individual attention from Ann that we all need. I loved every second and I can’t wait to continue in the advanced class. Thank you so much Ann for everything.”
-  Montana McDonald, 10/16
“Thank you, Ann, for letting me teach Sammie. We have a great bond and she listens to me more. These six weeks flew by, but she learned so much in them. This is such a great learning experience, not only for the dogs, but for the owner, too. Thank you again.”
-  Kelly Miller & Sammie, 10/17
"The transformation from week one to week six is astounding! Ann's knowledge, passion, and dedication made our experience at Brody's Boot Camp so worthwhile and enjoyable. Thank you for everything!"
- Karen Moretti (& Ollie!), 10/14
“Our eighty plus pound puppy was a lot to handle. Taking him for walks wasn’t enjoyable for either of us! After five weeks of Brody’s Boot Camp, we were able to go on over a three and a half mile walk near cars, people, tons of distractions, and both of us had a great time! Thank you Brody’s!”
- Jamie Oberdorf, 10/16
"I was a little nervous about bringing my 8 year old dog, Ernie, to Brody's Boot Camp. Like an old man, he was set in his ways! Ann made us feel like Ernie and I could both learn new things. She was very helpful and patient. Thank you, Ann!"
- Lori O'Connor, 3/16
“Ann’s classes are very informative and helpful. Ann is very patient and understanding about individual needs. This is my third dog who has attended Brody’s Boot Camp, and I yet again am very pleased!”
- Lori O'Connor, 10/17
“We were worried about Zoey, who lacked social skills and confidence. While at Brody’s Boot Camp, Zoey began interacting with her classmates. Each week was amazing watching these puppies (all of them under a year) learn a new concept. Ann and Tasha are great teachers! We look forward to returning with our older Shepherd, Charlie, who also lacks social skills.”
- Dan, Jackie & Zoey O’Neil
“I cannot express enough the high regard I have for Ann and her teaching abilities; not only for the dogs, but their owners as well! Ann’s ability to explain and demonstrate training methods in easy to understand terms is a trait I find many trainers lack. After all, we are all alone at home with our dogs once class has ended! After taking both of my dogs to the basic obedience class, and then both passing the AKC Canine Good Citizen course, I am very pleased with my experience.”
- Jackie O’Neil, 12/17
“Brody’s Boot Camp was such a great learning experience for both me and my dog"
- Meghan Patchen, 6/17
“This class was just what I needed to help Fred and myself. We have grown together to become a better dog owner and dog, relationship-wise. I have learned so much.”
- Jacquie Payne, 5/18
"I would highly recommend Brody's Boot Camp.  Watching my dog and the other K-9 participants learn a new concept each week was fantastic.  Ann goes above and beyond to ensure your and your dog's needs are met!"
- Skip Ritter, 12/12
“We looked forward to coming to Brody’s Boot Camp every week! Not only did our dog, Mesa, learn a lot, but my husband and I learned so much, too. Ann is experienced, talented, and caring, and it was evident every class that she is passionate about what she does. Brody’s Boot Camp taught us how to be confident, firm, and gentle all at the same time, and we have seen an enormous change in Mesa. Thanks to Ann (and furry, co-trainer, Tasha)! If you do your homework with your dog every week, come to class ready to learn and have fun, I promise you will not regret coming to Brody’s Boot Camp!”
- Jenna Ritting, 2/18
“Great experience! Ann is very knowledgeable and patient with the dogs. Would highly recommend.”
- Lisa Robbins, 4/18
“The change in my dog over the six week class was amazing.  We learned so much and I would recommend the class to anyone.”
- Cassandra Rowe, 4/17
"Abby and I really enjoyed Brody’s Boot Camp.  I learned just as much, if not more, than Abby.  Training obedience was taught in a very doable, simplistic way that has been very easy to utilize in real life situations.  Also, it was so fun and rewarding to see my puppy learn so quickly and easily!  Thank you, Ann!"
- Vivian Russell, 6/16
“This doggie/owner training is an excellent first step training on how to handle our puppies.  It is quickly apparent the dog’s desire to learn and please.  Ann does a very nice job of providing tips, techniques, and hands on examples of how to communicate with your fur friend.  The foundation techniques learned can easily be used to continue the home training to further develop your relationship during your puppy’s lifetime.  We have two pups about two weeks apart, and were able to train one (Buck, our Lab) in Ann’s convenient weekly class, while simultaneously duplicating the at-home training and bonding process with our second puppy (Chester, our Golden).  Although the class is intended to train your dog, it is ultimately a training for you as the owner.  Buck and Chester are the proud owners of a human and have enjoyed the learning process!  We look forward to continued achievements and milestones with our puppies.  We recommend this class for every dog owner.  The value will last through a lifetime.”
- Adam Schrader, 6/17
“Ann is very knowledgeable in training dogs.  She is caring and consistent in class.  My dog loved it!”
- Alayna Shipley, 6/17
"Roxie and I greatly enjoyed our experience with Ann at Brody’s Boot Camp! She loved learning and playing with her classmates, and we left with a stronger bond. Everyone who knew her before we started classes comments on her calmer demeanor and greater self-control. Thank you, Ann."
- Amy Simolo, 12/15
"I was worried there was no hope for Lucy after attending a class at another place.  Lucy has made a transformation and it’s been wonderful for Lucy and I.  I never thought I would have control over my dog, and with so much one on one support, it’s been great."
- Jill Snyder, 6/16
"We loved Brody’s Boot Camp!  We learned so much and Claire has benefited so much.  We take her places all the time and get compliments about how well she is behaved.  She is a joy to be around and others can enjoy her as well.  Ann is a great, patient teacher with endless knowledge.  The training area is super clean and well organized for training.  The info packets are full of information you can use for training and other things you need for a healthy, happy dog.  The price is very, very reasonable.  I would recommend this class to anybody with a dog!"
- Gabriele Stamp, 6/16
"Ann Marshall, by working with both you and your dog, does a great job teaching you how to properly obedience train your dog for people to enjoy being around. She also provides material to help you care for and understand your dog. Brody's Boot Camp is a great place to train your dog!"
- Ellen Stoewsand, 10/14
"By attending Brody’s Boot Camp, I was able to learn tricks that would help me cater specifically to Ike’s needs, something that I had been struggling with before.  Because of this, I was able to effectively train Ike and have seen an improvement in how he responds to people other than myself."
- Amanda Stone, 6/16
“Ann is great with both dogs and people!  She is firm and consistent, and uses humor to make us see what we need to work on.  I highly recommend this class to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and fun trainer!”
– James, Laura & Mazie Mae Taylor, 4/17
“Ann was amazing with our hyperactive pup. Highly recommend the class.”
- Tina Topping, 7/18
"After having gone to several other training classes where the techniques were not working with Chunk, I was happy to find that Ann realizes every dog is unique and was okay with using tools that work for your dog. Chunk is much better behaved and though he still needs work on not jumping and greeting people politely, I am optimistic that we will get there using the tools Ann suggested."
- Lora Tryon, 5/14
“What an amazing experience. I wanted to be the best dog Mom I could be, and this was the place to go. Hands on learning and any corrections I needed so we both could be successful. Thank you so much for your time and dedication. Best investment ever! Thanks again.”
- Stephanie VanNostrand, 7/18
“Brody’s Boot Camp was much more than I had expected. I went into the class with the hope of learning training techniques to help teach my son’s dog, Oakley, some social skills. I came away learning so much more!! It was a great experience! Ann gave me the tools, confidence, and support that I needed to work with Oakley. Ann has an amazing way with both dogs and people. Both Oakley and I had a wonderful time. We learned so much and we both made wonderful friends! Can’t wait to take another session! Thank you!!!.”
- Patty Ward, 7/12
"Ann is an amazing teacher with a lot of patience and a big love for dogs.  We learned so much, and River is a different dog than he was six weeks ago!  Whether or not you find success at Brody's Boot Camp, you will leave with the knowledge and skills necessary to create an obedient and lovable companion."
- Joanna & Chris Warrick, 12/13
"Class was serious, but fun. Ann gave lots of individual attention to help each one of us owners figure out how to make things work. She never lost her confidence or sense of humor. And, Lucy agrees!"
- Rachel Weil, 3/09
“I like how well everything was organized - - the hooks and place to put our things, and time for the dogs to play in the beginning. They needed it and could pay attention better during class. I was nervous at first thinking my dog would be distracted with the other dogs and his training at home wouldn’t show during class. But, I found that the other owners had the same fears and all our dogs showed so much progress, plus we learned from each other. If you put the time into the training, you will be rewarded by having a well behaved dog that will be a companion for life.”
- Janice Wright, 5/18
"Brody's Boot Camp helped me connect with my dog and understand her better. Dolee is a better dog and I'm a better owner. It would be irresponsible not to take this class if you have a dog. Best decision I made."
