Brody's Boot Camp


"Attending Brody’s Boot Camp was the best decision we could have made to receive the tools and knowledge needed in order to train our pup properly. This class is full of information. Don’t hesitate! There is so much to gain!"
- JoAnne & Mike Monaco, 10/23
“If you’re looking for a trainer that can give you the tools you need to create a lifelong bond and partnership with your dog, look no further than Brody’s Boot Camp. Ann is simply amazing and is truly passionate about her work and helping her human students become better trainers, and helping her canine students to become all around “good dogs”. I highly recommend Ann and Brody’s Boot Camp for your dog training needs.”
- Lynnsie Bennett, 5/19
“This is our second dog to take Brody’s class and we loved it both times!”
- Erin Bonafiglia, 10/23
"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

- Janet Clendenen, 3/16

“The class is great! Straight forward and it works if you do your homework. Ann is very knowledgeable and helpful.”
- Shannon & Beau Cleere, 6/24
“Excellent basic beginner class with added bonus of CGC training and test. Do not take this course unless you really want to commit to your dog’s training. It is a “boot camp”. You are given the tools, but you must follow through with practice.”
- Maureen Conklin, 3/24
“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
“We rescued our dog, Blue, at age three. We did not have much information about him. We quickly figured out he had had NO TRAINING! He was wild. Thank goodness we heard about Brody’s Boot Camp and were able to begin to socialize and train our “wild child” and develop a loving bond with Blue. Ann is an excellent instructor of dogs and their owners.”
- Karen Cardillo/Tim Goodman, 4/24
“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
"Ann is an excellent teacher and not only teaches you techniques on how to train your dog, but strengthen the bond of trust that exists between a person/owner and a dog. Since the start of the training, I have not only noticed a difference, but so do the neighbors when they see me outside walking my dog. Would highly recommend this to anyone."
- Christopher Denny, 12/23
“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
"This class structure helped my personal training which was unorganized and frustrating quickly transition into a structured, fun, and loving way to learn how to communicate with my dog appropriately and set me up for lifetime success."
- Ariel Felice, 3/24
"This was an exceptional experience for our first training class. It was exactly as I expected! I feel we have the tools to keep my sweet boy well behaved."
- Sara Fisher, 4/24
"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
"I would highly recommend this class to every dog owner. Gracie and I learned so much, but most importantly, how to understand each other. It was fun, even while frustrating at points. Ann is a great teacher!"
- Kristin Grillone, 2/20
“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
“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 done two classes with Ann now and she never disappoints! I love the structure and how honest and down to earth she is. She’ll tell you what to do to fix a problem, even if you may not like it! I’m looking forward to putting my third dog through her class shortly.”
- Leah Horton, 10/23
“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
“We are so pleased with our experience at Brody’s Boot Camp. The training and tools we learned have made a tremendous impact on the behavior of both of our dogs (only one attended). It is so well worth it, and we couldn’t be happier that we found Brody’s! Ann does amazing work!”
- Tina Hunt, 3/24
"No dog training system is perfect. It will only be as successful as the owner who is willing to put in the time and effort. But Ann comes pretty close. Your skills and ability to teach have changed our lives for the better. You are such a good, firm teacher!"
- Ed & Diane Jurkiewicz, 12/23
"Enrolling in Brody’s Boot Camp was the best decision we made for our dog.  The comprehensive lessons and hands-on practice sessions were incredibly effective.  Ann was professional, supportive, and clearly passionate about helping dogs and their owners.  We’ve seen remarkable improvements in our dog’s behavior and responsiveness.  The class not only trained our dog, but also equipped us with valuable techniques to reinforce good behavior at home.  We couldn’t be happier with the results!  Highly recommended."
- Diane Kirkauskus, Rob, and our lovable pooch, Jack, 7/24
"I love Ann’s no-nonsense approach to training. The training is as much for the owner as it is for the dog. Makes being a dog owner so much more enjoyable."
- Beth Lahr, 6/24
"The class helped me as a new dog owner develop good skills and an even better bond with my pup. Worth the time and energy invested in the class and homework."
- Emily Lavarnway, 12/23
"Taking Brody’s Boot Camp with Ann was so much fun! When Buddy and I started, we were both disasters. But, over the 6-week period we both learned how to be a better behaved puppy and owner. I highly recommend this class to anyone with a new canine friend in their life. You’ll look forward to it every week."
- Holly Leone, 6/24
"I was so nervous about bringing Copper around other dogs and that he wouldn’t learn. But, Copper and Ann proved me wrong and now I have the confidence and skills to keep learning and growing with my pup!"
- Tristen Lloyd, 6/24
“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
“No matter the age of the dog or its owner, we can all use the guidance Ann Marshall gives us in working with our dogs. She’s firm but gentle, and loves them all. She helps us become more responsible pet owners.”
-  Carol Myers, 6/24
“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
“We can’t believe we never attended a dog training course before. We learned so much. We loved the smaller sized classes. We learned how to train our dog. In five weeks, our dog Raven learned so much and improved so much! She learned how to heel, which I thought was impossible(!), how to play appropriately with other dogs, and so much more. I/we cannot believe how helpful it was. Highly recommended for every dog owner! We’ll be back if we get another dog, or even for a refresher for Raven.”
- Maggie Passmore & Will Burns, 6/24
"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
“I have a small, high-strung Shih tzu. I was told that they are “untrainable”. I feared for my dog’s safety because we live on a busy road and she would run away if she slipped her leash. After the training, she listens and was surprisingly easy to train. I am grateful for the lifelong skills we learned at Brody’s Boot Camp and I highly recommend it.”
- Pat Siegel, 12/23
“I am so thankful I took the leap and did the training! Kayce has improved so much in just a few weeks. I appreciated the small classes and personalized attention. Looking forward to taking other classes in the future. I would recommend this class to any dog owner.”
- Felicia Andrews, 10/23
"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 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
“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
"Ann is very knowledgeable about dogs and training. Her training style is very clear and easy to follow. She also provides instructions to bring home in case you forgot, as well as other information about how to care for your dog and being a responsible dog owner. I highly recommend Ann and Brody’s Boot Camp!"
- Jennifer Wick, 7/21
"We have seen leaps and bounds of a difference with our fur baby since working with Ann. The intimate class size was perfect for socialization while learning, and it was comforting to see other pups at varying levels through the process. I highly recommend to any owner that needs some training themselves!"
- Nikki Winslow, 10/23
"I’ve been so pleased with the experience I’ve had with Brody’s Boot Camp. My relationship with my dog has greatly improved and our bond is much stronger. I was so impressed with Ann’s abilities and her commitment to learning about each dog and figuring out tools and techniques to bring out the best in each of them."
