One of the best things we did was starting lessons for our kids. Scott & Jessie are great instructors! Our kids count down the days until their next lesson.

Loved training Ollie with Legend Acres. It’s made having a puppy again so much more manageable. We are excited about level two and have seen the benefits with our 11 year old daughter as well. Very dog owner would benefit from the training offered. Highly recommended! More...

Our daughter learned to ride here at a young age and now owns her own horse which we board there. Kristy and all the staff have been amazing to us we don't live close by so we have trusted them for all his needs. They have gone above and beyond with his care. I never have to worry what's going on with him because Kristy is so knowledgeable she keeps us updated. We do recommend them for boarding and training. More...

I have been in training with my dog (Lucy) for the past 5 months. to become a service animal for myself. I cannot say enough great and wonderful things about Legend Acres. The staff knows my name and my dogs name, that is such a comfort to me. They are very caring and kind to everyone. Kristi takes her time with each dog and adjusts to individual needs. I would recommend Legend Acres dog training to anyone!! Even to just get the basics to be able to handle your dog. Lucy and I have bonded unconditionally through this training. More...

I took my 7 year old granddaughter for her first interaction with a horse. She was nervous at first but everyone was so awesone, they put her at ease in no time. She's alrady looking forward to riding again and was calling everyone she knows to tell them about her experience. I can't say enough good things about them. More...

We had such a wonderful experience with Legend Acres. Our sweet dog, Roo, was struggling with some anxiety resulting in a very reactive personality that occasionally terrified strangers. We completed the basic obedience course with Kristi where we learned how to get Roo’s brain to slow down and improve our communication with him. We are so happy with the results and thankful for all of the advice and expertise Kristi had to offer. She always listened to our issues and offered us an array of solutions to pick and choose from. Thank you Kristi! Also, this is a great value and totally worth the drive up from Nashville! More...

We haven't boarded here in years since we left Tennessee. However this is the best place we ever boarded and honestly I haven't trusted anyone else to take care of my mastiff. They have large indoor outdoor kennels, very reasonable pricing, and their staff is A+! We miss Legend Acres incredibly. More...

They did a great job training my 5 month old labradoodle, Riley! We did the 4 week board and train and he can now follow commands for sit, stay, come, down, find it, leave it, drop it, walk with me on a leash, and is so much better about not biting us when playing! Very happy with his results and highly recommend them! More...

My daughter has been taking horse riding lessons here and has loved every minute. Her instuctor, Mr. Scott, works with her, talks her through everything and just really goes above and beyond. Everyone we have come in contact with has been helpful and very friendly. We are very happy to have a place like Legend Acres near us. More...

We had my daughters tenth birthday party out there. It rained and rained!! The trainers were out there for two hours with our kids, never did they complain get grumpy or was put out for being out in the rain with a bunch of kids. They were happy the kids were happy it was a great time!!! This was a thrill of a life time for these kids especially my kids. Even when it came to clean up we just removed our personal items and they wouldn't let us clean up they did that too!! If you are looking for a great time for your childs birthday party this is the place to be!! The people were so friendly, let me come out before hand and tour the place. They made sure all the animals were up for the kids even noticing one wasn't feeling great and swapping him out for another horse. We could not have asked for any more or any better!! Thank you Legen Acres for a memory she will remember the rest of her life!! More...

I drive close to four hours round-trip to train my dog with Kristi, and I would drive even further if I had to. I have worked with a number of trainers at other facilities, and none of them comes close to Legend Acres. Kristi is Houdini's and my biggest cheerleader. She is knowledgeable, encouraging, and generous. I love that she is constantly striving to add to her skill set and knowledge base, and also that she turns around and shares that knowledge with her clients. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. More...

We did the board and train with our 6 month (now 7) old german shepherd Roxy. She had been in obedience classes at PetSmart and would perform on command at home, but any distractors or new people and it was like pulling teeth. We chose to do the board and train because we were going to be out of the country for a week, and I had a lot of doctor's appointments/medical tests going on. Sara was a fabulous trainer who was willing to work with her and understand that when it was hot she would tire easily. Kristi was amazing at answering my questions prior to setting it up. She also made the drop off process easy since it was the day before our flight. Roxy is anxious and they recommended the adaptil which helped. They also got her to be more successful with leave it. Roxy was able to sleep with us last night instead of the kennel and she was perfect. No attacking the pillows, or trying to rip off the blankets. She was in her spot the entire night. There are two more weekly classes for us to utilize which is nice. We also decided to enroll her in the group classes after her spay. Highly recommend!! More...

I have been a client of Legend Acres for almost a year now, and it has been a life changing blessing for which I am truly grateful. I had been to two other training schools prior. The first place did not use positive based training, and my little rescued street dog became more anxious rather than better behaved. The second place is one of the best known in Nashville. The training itself was good, but the class size was too large. Houdini and I did not get the private attention we needed to succeed. All that changed when I found Kristi and Legend Acres on an app called thumbtack. Kristi worked with us privately, and helped my little dog, who had failed his CGC exam at our prior “Big Name” school to pass with flying colors. Through her encouragement, he is now a service dog in training!! Kristi made a personal investment in us, and our success, and I could not be more grateful. More recently, I had an unexpected crisis with my living situation. I messengered Kristi in the early hours of the morning, and she replied immediately that I could drop off my cats. She and her staff did an amazing job looking after my fur babies for the two weeks it took me to find a safe new living situation for all of us. These folks care and are not just doing a job, but are on a mission to help people and their fur families. More...

I think they do a wonderful job of watching Bella. She has a good time there. We've boarded her there several times. Their business has certainly grown and that brings up my only negative. We now have to pay to have Bella walked or for someone to play and spend time with her out in the field. I liked it when they would rotate taking the dogs out of the kennel to run, play catch and to spend time in the fields. But they truly care and love all the animals. More...

They took our 9 week old puppy and worked wonders with him (board and train)! The weekly training sessions were SO helpful for us. We felt like we really knew how to reinforce his new behaviors! As a first time puppy parent, I had lots of questions for the ladies after we got home and started finding our routine. They always responded quickly and helpfully! We have such a well behaved PUPPY now! I would recommend this place over and over again. We actually are about to start the next set of obedience classes in one of their remote offerings! More...

I highly recommend Legend Acres for training dogs. Our Pearl is a real challenge and we wanted to find someone to help with general obedience while not breaking her spirit. We found them!! Sarah, our trainer, understands a strong-willed pup’s personality is important to stay intact as she learns to obey commands. Kristi and her crew are true professionals and we are fortunate to have connected with them. Pearl loves going to school and we do too! Thanks! More...

My rescue yellow lab Jack Daniels was ripping my arm off dragging me- and I almost had to give him up. My trainer Sarah worked with us on the gentle leader in Springfield Tn. Jack just passed his puppy 101 and we are going back for more training in the Spring. Highly recommend. They taught me how to be kind- but firm- and saved our relationship. Book them now.

We recently boarded our pup Kaiser with Legend Acres. We were very impressed with their facility. He had a huge indoor area with a large fenced outdoor area. It was a very clean and well kept facility. When we arrived to pick him up the staff met us with his blankets and bed that had just been washed. We will definitely use them again for our future boarding needs. Thank you girls for taking such great care of our pup. More...
