Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
Sean was the perfect trainer for our German Shepherd Titan. He was very accommodating with our busy schedule and helped make our 1.5 hour commute worth it. He is very passionate with every dog he trains. Titan and I were able to form a better relationship by following Sean's suggestions and commands. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. He would make sure we understood what we should be doing with Titan at home and on walks. The training sessions were very comfortable and efficient. Not once did my wife and I feel uncomfortable to ask Sean questions. Titan became very comfortable with Sean as well, considering him part of his "pack". Titan looked forward to training with Sean everyday. It wasnt just training for Titan, Sean helped us better understand the fundamentals of dog training. Overall it was the best training experience we could have asked for and we will definitely be back with our next dog!Aug 4, 2015Rocket City K9's reply
Kris, thank you so very much for your kind words. It was my privilege to have had the opportunity to work with you, your wife and Titan. If y'all come back this way, please look me up, I'd love to catch up with how the soccer season(s) have been.
Calling Sean at Cogent Canine was the best call I ever made. From the moment I spoke with him, I knew he was the person to help with my dogs. I have 2 giant schnauzers with very different issues. My male had aggression issues towards other dogs and would redirect that aggression when unable to get to the source. He was also very pushy with young kids and I didn't trust him. My female had "nipped' 3 people due to fear and was very wild and unpredictable. I was at my wits end and fearful as to what else might happen. After our initial phone call, I felt better and knew there was hope!! The moment he walked into my home, we went to work!! He taught me so much and made sure I was comfortable using all of the equipment we had decided upon using. Watching him work with my dogs, predicting their movements, explaining their language was amazing. I was truly in awe of his knowledge and talents. He loves what he does and it shines through as you watch him work. I will always be grateful for what he has taught me, and it doesn't end when he walks out the door. I have called him several times with questions and concerns and he walks me through everything I need to do!! That is what makes him stand out above the rest. Thank you Sean for bringing peace in my home again!! Sincerely, Dana MillerAug 4, 2015Rocket City K9's reply
Dana, thank you so much for your review! It was my pleasure to get to know your family. Your dogs are amazing animals and your family are amazing dog owners. The care and love you have for your animals is astounding. I wish I could bottle it up and give it out to everyone with a four legged companion. The way you welcomed me into your home was a blessing to me and it made you made my job easy. You are what made the success of your dogs possible. As I always say, I can train your dogs to do a pirouette in a tutu but it does you no good if you cannot do the same. You ma'am, can make your dogs not only do a pirouette but perform an entire act of Swan Lake. Thank you so very much for being so great!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always seeking more knowledge from anyone and everyone who will allow me to soak up all their wisdom. I am also constantly teaching classes and seminars which has given me the ability to stay current on all modern training techniques based in science.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was just 5 years old when I made the decision that I wanted to become an Air Force Security Police Military Working Dog (MWD) Handler. Unlike most children, I never wavered from my dream. I began training dogs at 15 years old by spending time at neighbors homes training obedience for family pets.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common training I conduct is behavioral modification. Rarely will a family need a dog that sits and heels perfectly. What they really need and want is a dog that behaves properly and is a part of their family, not locked away in a crate because it does not behave.
