Reviews for ALL BREED RESCUE & TRAINING

Rating: 5 stars  

I first used All Breed Training and Rescue almost 12 years ago to help me with the fearful young Australian Shepherd I had adopted from our local shelter. The difference in Elvis from first day of class to the last had me in tears of joy by graduation. SInce then, my father, my cousin and countless other friends have taken their dogs to Lauren Fox and the great group at ABRT for training. When my now husband and I were getting ready to merge our households 10 years ago, the first person I called was Lauren to evaluate any issues we might have making our three dogs instant siblings. I currently have my 2-year-old Pit mix, Ellie, another adoption from our local shelter, in lessons with Lauren. Like anyone with a reactive dog, I would love to wiggle my nose and have a "perfect" dog, but we are going at Ellie's pace and the results have been positive and steady. Both my husband and my two young children have been involved in her training and it really has bonded all of us. Lauren has shown that same commitment to us every class. Ellie used to be fearful of any car trip. Now all I have to say is, "Are you ready to go to class?" and she turns into a grinning, wriggly goofball! Not sure where we'd be without Lauren and the team at All Breed Rescue and Training.

I adopted an ABRT dog in 2009 and another in 2013. I am in awe of these people who rescue these dogs that have been thrown away. They have no hope. All Breed finds them, evaluates them and turns them into loving, loyal members of a family. They don't stop at the adoption. They continue to ensure these dogs never again end up at a shelter on death row. Both of my dogs would have been put to death - they had been horribly abused by someone. Today, they are members of our family.

We recently started fostering a dog through All Breed Rescue & Training and have only been impressed with how they operate. So much love and devotion is given to these dogs with a true desire to not just find a home, but find the right home for each animal, making the right match for the adopter as well. This is how you truly find a forever home.

Lauren is a 100% ROCK STAR. Everyone else said they could not fix my Kangal dog and there was nothing they could do. Lauren proved then all wrong. My dog has become a great part of my family. Lauren can always help with reactive dogs despite what other trainers tell you.
Thank for everything you have done Lauren. You are my dogs savior.

Five years ago I started training my dog at ABRT. It's such a great organization, I started volunteering, became a foster mom and eventually became a member of the Board of Directors. I love the trust based, positive reinforcement training, the community education that we do and the resue of at risk dogs.

Not only did All Breed Rescue and Training help our family find a great companion dog, they've helped change our life. We are now more physically active and more apt to enjoy the beautiful region where we live, but we've learned more about ourselves and our behavior by thoughtful analysis of our dog's desires and needs. We're teaching and training our dog, but our dog is training and teaching us, too. This wouldn't occur without the dedication, knowledge, care and ability that ALL the staff at ABRT, and especially executive director Lauren Fox, exhibit each and every time we arrive for class. Five stars, A+, two paws up rating for ABRT!

Got involved with ABRT to help our newest family member get some manners. The training programs that we have been involved in so far have not only been teaching us how to train our dog, but they have been fun and the comraderie is an added bonus. I also came to see all the many wonderful other things they are doing. This is a great organization that wants only the best for their rescues and are willing to make magic happen. The staff is dedicated and loving, patient and kind, knowledgeable and informative.
Thank you All Breed Rescue and Training!!
