We were a little skeptical (and scared) when we decided to send our cute little devil away for three weeks for training. He was brought home to us on Sunday the most well behaved, polite and all around sweetest dog ever. He still has his spunky personality, now just with self control. It was the best decision we could have made for him and our family. Summer is amazing and is obviously very good at what she does. We couldn't be more appreciative of what she has done with Lux. She made being around him enjoyable, which before he went to training was a struggle at times. Ok,most of the time. Summer posted pictures and sent updates to calm our nerves throughout the process. She was sensitive to the fact this process was a little tough for us. We couldn't be happier with how this all worked out and recommend her to anyone. After this experience we are confident that she could work wonders with even the most untrainable dogs.

We adopted our Shepherd mix puppy from a rescue knowing she had issues. We gave Eliza time and patience, and several rounds of puppy class and basic obedience, I was referred to socialization class to build Eliza's confidence, and minimize reactive episodes. Eliza came a long way in Big Dog Socialzation but still had some struggles which limited her to safe surroundings. Eliza was even considered "reactive." I also had purchased every advertised and recommend collar to "fix" her pulling while walking. I reached out to Summer to help me, help Eliza get to the next level. The e collar system and Summer's common sense dog wisdom, has made a world of difference with Eliza and I. It has changed our relationship and raised my expectations. I am able to work on "hard things" with Eliza and have seen jumps in her confidence. Eliza's improved leash walking, alone, was worth the investment of working with Summer! I now get compliments from neighbors! Eliza gets to go so many more places to walk and work on her skills. Summer is a Professional dog and owner trainer and is worth every cent of the investment for you and your pet. Plus Summer makes the time enjoyable and fun!

Summer is an excellent dog trainer and we are very grateful that we found her! She helped us get our corgi puppy trained up. Not only were her private training sessions very informative and on the spot, but she was always on time and willing to answer questions even when she wasn’t in session. She was definitely a lifesaver!

My wife and I have three large puppies that are 20 months old and about 100# each, we were having dogs getting to hard to handle, fighting with each other. The problem was two of the dogs are Dutch Shepherd sisters, they are very smart, and extremely high energy, to the point where we weren’t sure we could handle them. After our second visit with Summer she was able to help us understand what the dogs need from us. We are now working with the sisters, with Summers direction we feel like we will be able work with the sisters by giving them the structure they need, and a better understanding how to train our dogs. And point out the things we were doing that are less the helpful. If you want to understand and be able to bring pet ownership to a new level, I would strongly recommend Summer and “On the Ball K9.

"Speak softly and carry a big stick" is what comes to mind when I think of my training experience with On the Ball. Summer is very soft spoken, but commands the respect of dogs and their humans.

My husband and I are first time dog owners and adopted a 4 year old German Shepherd rescue (probably not recommended.) Our inexperience was evident when we brought Linus home. We knew little about him other than he was a nervous dog with few boundaries and I knew that we would need a lot of guidance. I sent an inquiry to On the Ball and was desperate for help in establishing peace between our resident felines and the new canine wild child. Summer scheduled the in home evaluation and Linus barked and barked and barked...and barked at her presence. Even though I didn't immediately enroll in lessons, Summer was quick to recommend socialization and offered a few other free pieces of advice. I was impressed with her willingness to work with a dog who was clearly not happy with a stranger on his turf.

We've since completed our lessons and Linus is a regular staple at group socialization. He adores Summer and stops for Drive-by pets whenever he sees her. Linus' confidence has risen and is adjusting nicely to his role in our household. He is a dream to walk and we are often complimented by neighbors with more unruly dogs.

I'm a huge fan of Summer's method. She gives you all of the tools that you need to train your dog. As long as you do your homework, the e-collar is extremely effective. I also love the group classes, as it gives you an opportunity to meet with other clients and their dogs.

Summer is clearly passionate about what she does. Her patience, knowledge, and experience are invaluable. I highly recommend On the Ball K9!

I couldn’t be more pleased with Hattie’s training under the guidance of On The Ball K9. Summer Milroy is an amazing trainer. She gave me the confidence and tools I needed to train Hattie. Forever grateful!!!

My husband and I wanted to get a large dog for my son. Summer helped us narrow down what kind of dog we should go for and came for our first home consultation, we knew there was no choice but On the Ball!

Summer is incredible! She is so knowledgeable and accessible. we are already seeing a difference in our puppy. After only 3 session our puppy responded to "sit," "down," "Place," "off," and "come." For those of you that know the breed (stubborn lab mix) this is a pretty big feat! She is socialized, getting trained, and is an overall happy pup.
Whenever we have a question, or Lil exhibits a behavior we aren't sure what to do with, Summer has a solution or suggestion, and they haven't failed yet.

Summer is more than we could have ever asked for. It is more than just the fact that she obviously loves dogs, she respects them, wants the best for them, and it shows in her work and interaction. Our dog could not love her more, and her people aren't far behind!

avatarOur experience with Summer of On The Ball K9 training was nothing short of wonderful. Summer set us up with the tools so that we can to raise an Akita puppy into a well Obedient Akita Dog, she took the time to answer any question that we had and never made us feel out of place being the novice new puppy owners we are. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Knowledgeable Dog trainer and someone that will take the time to train you as well.

Consider us Team Summer...........

Summer Milroy is one of the best trainers I know. Have you seen her dogs? They are amazing and they help her with all other dogs and people that have the privilege of working with her.

I can't say enough nice things about Summer and On The Ball K9 Training. I have 2 German Shepherds that my wife, child, and myself all adore, but were driving us nuts. They're polar opposites from each other and were combining to create chaos constantly. We'd done some training in the past, but I didn't feel confident in my ability to set the foundations we needed to have the dogs we wanted. My wife and I actually saw Summer teaching a group class at our local farmer's market and there were quite a few dogs there behaving the way we hoped ours could. My wife went and spoke with Summer, got her info, and we looked her up. We really liked what we saw and ended up contacting her and setting up a consultation. After speaking with Summer about the options she had available, we chose to do the board and train camp. Best decision we could have made! Summer transformed both of our dogs and set that solid foundation so we can enjoy being with our dogs pretty much anywhere now. Both the dogs loved Summer and I think my male felt he should just move in with her. They came back to us with the knowledge and confidence to behave at home and around town. My female learned that she doesn't have to bark at everyone and everything that moves while we're out and that's a huge relief. I've had family members over to see the dogs and they can't believe they're the same dogs. During the whole training experience Summer kept me informed about what was going on, what was being worked on, sent me pictures and videos, and left me feeling completely confident that I was getting exactly what I hoped out of her training. I really can't express how impressed I've been with my dogs progress and it's an ongoing process with Summer offering group classes and events where I can bring my dogs and work with them under her guidance. Anyone who's even thinking about using On The Ball K9 should stop thinking about it and get Summer on the phone.
