"Remember that special "Aunt____"? (maybe not really your aunt, but your Mom told you to call her that...) She was so fun to be with and made you feel special. Well...my dogs, Abby & Dakota, have found that "special Aunt" in Deanna Blackwell of Advanced Canine Concepts. She is our "go-to" person for boarding, training...and a fun time for our pets. Whether out of the state or out of the country, we are so at peace knowing our pets are well cared for and happy at Advanced Canine Concepts. And, we have a special reason to be grateful because our Dakota has epilepsy and requires medication 4 times each day. We are totally confident that Deanna is responsible and prompt with has medication and a knowledgeable canine specialist who would know if Dakota needs medical attention."
Thanks, Deanna, for being Abby and Dakota's special "Aunt Deanna"!

"Deanna has been taking care of my two "four-legged" kiddos since the very beginning (9 & 6 years). They aren't pinned up in a kennel all day - they get plenty of play time, exercise and more than enough attention and affection. She treats them as if they were her own! I don't think my wife and I would be able to enjoy our time away nearly as much if it weren't for the fact that we know that Shelby and Elvis are with Deanna and being treated like one of the family!"
"I will cancel my vacation/travel plans if Deanna Blackwell at Advanced Canine Concepts cannot take care of my dogs. We have tried boarding our two German Shepherds at the Best in D boarding facilities, and they in no way compare with the care our dogs receive from Deanna. Deanna has a background in training police dogs, so she is incredibly knowledgeable about German Shepherds. However, her love and understanding of all breeds is immediately apparent. She has trained our dogs personally, and has given us invaluable tips and tools to use at home in teaching our dogs. I will never leave my dogs with anyone but Deanna."
"Luli and Frankie love to stay with Deanna and her family. Frankie enjoys playing with the kids and Luli looks forward to following the kids around in case they might accidentally drop something to eat. Whenever we travel for several weeks at a time, we feel good about leaving the dogs with an in-home provider instead of with a facility with small cages. We plan to return to Advanced Canine Concepts for many years to come."
"We have a 7 year old labrador who began a two week training program at 6 months old with Advanced Canine Concepts. We were amazed how "trained" he was after such a short period of time. We kept up the training by attending classes and having him stay at the trainer's home while we traveled. Besides learning how to behave, he was taught how to be be social with other dogs. We continue, after all these years, to have him stay there to board when we are away and know that he is getting the best of care."
"We always hate leaving our dog Flip behind when we travel, but I always feel good knowing he’s well taken care of staying with Deanna at Advanced Canine Concepts. He is always excited to go, and it’s obvious he knows where he is when he gets out of the truck. He is happy to see Deanna again, and anxious to get busy playing with them and the other dogs."
"Leaving your pet with someone for the first time is always a nervous affair due to the uncertainty of how your dog will react to a new environment. We are very fortunate to have found a place we are at ease leaving Flip, and know he is in good hands."
"Thanks Deanna for taking such good care of Flip."
"WE LOVE ACC! We've been attending Doggy Daycare for next to four years and we race out of the car to see Deanna every time we come! The best part of ACC is there are NO KENNELS!!! Well, there are some but only if we need them! We are INSIDE with the FAMILY all day!! It's like we are visiting cousins when we come to PLAY and there is lots of room to run outside. Sometimes our boys take us to play when they go to play with their friends! Our extended family really does go ABOVE AND BEYOND for us."
"The Trainers have helped us overcome simple fears and has taken extremely good care of us while our owners are away. Once we stayed for a whole week!!! Thanks for letting us BRAG about ACC!!"

"I have been using Deanna's services to babysit my dogs when I go on vacation for the last 9 years. No one has taken better care of my dogs than she has. Both of my two dogs love to stay at her house and get very excited about going on "vacation." Having Deanna as my dog sitter, I have the peace of mind knowing that they are safe and well taken care of while I am away. The added bonus is that my dogs are always more well-mannered returning from vacation than when they leave for vacation. I have also used her in home dog training service to train my dogs and have been very satisfied with the results."
"Deanna has been watching our dog Trixie, for over 8 years! She is very reliable and we really depend on her. Trixie doesn't like to stay anywhere else."
