We held back two promising puppies from My GSD's last litter. As that put us at five dogs, we asked Erik Hall of Valhalla K9 to take the four month old female and continue her socialization and begin foundation work for IPO. This can be a tricky task, because Erik needed to make sure that his training techniques and commands were consistent with the ones we would use if we decided that she was the keeper. Moreover, the training must have just enough structure to teach, but not kill the the dog's natural joy. A very light touch is required. Throughout the four months that he had her, Erik sent videos and consulted frequently. He brought her for joint training sessions every few weeks to insure that we were all on the same page. She is back home now and we have made the difficult decision to keep her and let the male go. Fortunately, Erik took great care to train her in "our style" and the transition back to my husband's handling has been without conflict or confusion. Whether training a dog for competition or as a pet, the training must transfer over to the dog's home environment. Erik does an exceptional job with this. Our girl is on the correct path for both - a dog who loves to work and be with people. Erik did a fantastic job.
Arin takes care of our golden retriever whenever we travel. She has experience as a dog trainer and has worked with a midtown vet. We are confident that our baby is well cared for and loved. We never worry when we are away. She professional, respectful and has a kind heart for all animals. would highly recommend her
Very understanding coaches, excellent facilities for training canines!
Dog Gone Good Dog Training did a wonderful job training my two dogs. Tonya is an excellent dog trainer and I highly recommend her.
Right off the bat you can tell that the people at The Dog Coach have a passion for animals. They are caring and compassionate people who understand dogs and their behaviors in a way most people do not, which makes them more than qualified to teach any dog anything. I took my Doberman, who was in real need of some obedience training, to them and I've seen such a difference. I have done one training session with them and did a board and train day as well and he listens so much better. I have worked primarily with Clint and I can't tell you how much I am impressed by his skill and insight. He gave me hints and tips for managing my strong willed puppy that I would never have thought of on my own. His facility is large and beautiful and I think if I were a dog, it would be paradise. Every dog there just radiates happiness. You can tell just by the way the dogs flock to the coaches and hang off their every word that they love and hold deep respect for the trainers. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference they make in my dog and hope to work consistently with them in the future. If you are looking for a dog trainer, look no further. You have found it in The Dog Coach.
Jeff has done a wonderful job with our two very different pups. Sweet shy Kinsey had gained tons of confidence through the training and over zealous Einstein has learned to dial it back a little and listen. I am very thankful we made this choice and will recommend them to everyone.
We have taken both of our dogs to Daisy. She is wonderful and very knowledgeable. She will show you how to work with your dog and then work with you to master the skills. If you have questions, she is available to answer them for you. She not only cares for your dog but cares for both you and your dog.
