My husband and I adopted our first dog 2+ years ago when he was a 4 month old puppy. My only criteria for us to have a dog was that he received proper training. I asked around, and received information about Duffy's. After setting up a free evaluation, we met our trainer David. The program seemed to be exactly what we were looking for: an individual training with an individual trainer, separate lessons for our dog to learn before we were trained as handlers, and ongoing training once he had completed the training. To say that we were satisfied is a complete understatement. Everywhere we go, we are told how well our dog behaves, and how they wish that they could get their dog to behave like that. It's as if they think we just lucked out and "got a good one." True, our dog is one of the good ones, a sweet lab/great dane mix, but he is far from perfect. No dog is born well mannered. They are trained into such behavior. Duffy's offers a team of highly qualified trainers that INDIVIDUALLY assess your dog, and train them accordingly. I want to respond to most of those commenters by saying, "Well, maybe you should get your money back from Petsmart." The truth is, if you are looking to get your dog to shake your hand, Petsmart is your place. But, if you are looking for your dog to come when called, stay silent while walking next to a group of other dogs while on a walk, stay upon command, and to mind their manners when guests come into your home (a dog's most defensive and territorial place) then Duffy's is your very best choice within the Louisville and Southern Indiana area. Manners are the HARDEST thing to teach a dog. They are willful, strong, and crave order. This training is top notch. The price is definitely more than a set of unproductive PetSmart classes, but you get what you pay for. On average the undivided attention that your dog will receive is nothing compared to the attention YOU receive as a handler. The staff is extremely attentive and completely patient while they train the most stubborn clients of all: pet owners. Pet owners are in such denial of their dogs' behavior. They think that terrible habits are adorable and they make tons of excuses. The trainers, especially David, are incredibly thoughtful in teaching you to work well with your dog.
Not only would I recommend Duffy's but I would go as far as to say that our training through them is the single biggest factor that helped me to bond with our dog. We loved the experience so much that as soon as we adopted our second dog, we took him as soon as he was old enough back to David. The strongest testament, however, is not how we feel about Duffy's. It's our dogs' opinion. Our older dog knows as soon as we turn down the street where we are going. He goes crazy: whining in anticipation, wagging his tail excitedly, and can't wait to jump out of the car to get inside. He loves Duffy's as do we.
Do yourself a favor, and at least go for the free evaluation. Notice the people that are there when you are. They'll be seeing their own trainer for their own individual assessments and lessons. Do us a favor, too, and join the club of owners with well-behaved dogs so that we can open our own dog park!
Duffy's Dog Training Center has been a life saver. Our dog suffers from aggressive behavior and
Duffy's has helped correct this behavior. The Drop Off and Pick Up program was well worth the investment!
Everywhere we go in the community people remark how well-behaved our dogs are and we give the credit to Duffy s Dog Training Center. We have 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks and this breed is characteristically strong-willed. With the guidance of David (our trainer), our dogs are capable of doing more than following the basic commands. Recently, my oldest dog passed the certification exam of Therapy Dog International with only one week of preparation and he was trained at Duffy s in December of 2011. If you have a dog or dogs that you walk one day and have to go to the chiropractor the following day: you need to call Duffy s Dog Training Center right now.
Very happy with our two experiences with Duffy's. We would recommend them to anyone! Great facility, great staff! Anytime we hear a friend or family member mention how out of control their dog is, we immediately say "Duffy's".
Owning three dogs can be overwhelming. The trainers at Duffy's Training Center have helped me manage the pack. (Amos, Andy, Jezzy) When a problem arises the trainers are always available to handle any crisis I might have. (Been a few). Thank you Matthew, David, Kat, Josh, Tyler

We took or golden retriever there and in our first visit I was amazed I didn't think it was the same dog. They were awesome. I would definitely recommend them!!
I have a six month old golden retriever and she isn’t a beast or a monster. She was a big hearted girl who frankly needed to learn some manners. It took several months before I caved and admitted I am not a dog trainer and that I needed the help of professionals. That’s where Duffy’s Dog Training Center came in. I took my pup in for an evaluation and in the first few minutes our trainer, Josh, had her behaving like a little lady. I was sold. We started our training the following week and, no kidding, from the first day the change in her behavior was unbelievable. I can’t say enough in favor of Duffy’s. The staff is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. And probably the biggest endorsement is that each and every morning my girl is happy and excited to be going for another day with her buddies at Duffy’s. If you are considering this, do yourself a favor and at least go in for the free evaluation. You will be surprised at what they can do for you and your dog.
Well to make a long story short, I purchased a german shepherd male dog, Ody, for my youngest son. Because he was still going to Purdue, I told him that I would take care of Ody until Austin graduated from college. Little did I know what I was getting myself into since this was my 1st dog. At 6 months old, Ody dragged me down the street after a squirrel. He was so strong, that I couldn't hold him back from other dogs, rabbits, squirrels, etc. Ody barked at every dog around. It was embarrassing when I walked into Duffy's for the first time because Ody wouldn't stop barking. From the 1st lesson, it was night and day difference. I get compliments from all the neighbors when we go for a walk because Ody walks right beside me with no leash. When the pizza delivery person comes to the door, Ody sits at the door until the guy leaves. Even the pizza guy couldn't believe what a well behaved dog I had. I totally recommend Duffy's to anyone that has a dog! They really helped my husband and I train a wonderful, loving, obedient buddy!
Our bichon mix was lunging, nipping,and growling at people. She dragged me down the street, lunging at passers by. In one week, Josh, our personal trainer, working as a team with the other trainers, transformed our nipping, lunging, growling dog into a well mannered, easy to handle, delightful little pet. The trainers at Duffy's are knowledgable, kind, understanding, and helpful. I've taken dogs to different obedience classes through the years. Never have I had a dog achieve such a transformation. I highly recommend Duffy's Training Center. Their calm, confident, team approach works!
Amazed at the transformation – I took my aggressive, protective 3 year old 150 lbs Great Dane as a last resort to Duffy's. This was his last chance as he had already bitten people and was becoming dog agressive too. We left him for two weeks and were amazed at how well behaved he was when we returned. Granted it took continued work on our part but he had the basics down and was now able to be controlled. We had never seen him so well behaved.
This was several years ago, but we are returning this month with a hound mix puppy and I have complete confidence that we will see the same amazing results that we experienced before.
The staff is friendly and experienced and seem to really care for the dogs.
