Great Experience! Fast response and appointment. Our new nine month old shelter rescue refused to walk on a leash was even scared of the leash/collar. He would sit down and refuse to move. We travel a lot so leash training is imperative when staying in hotels! Bruce's training skills are exceptional, whether the training is for the dog or myself lol...it worked! He had my little puppy walking on a leash/wearing the collar within one session.. this is after one month of me trying to train him myself. Every day since he's been walking with a collar and a leash with no problems.... of course he still get scared here and there of other digs or people but is doing so well! We felt that Bruce's skillful and gentle approach really helped our little Kingston. Highly recommend. Thanks Bruce!
I hired K9 Katelyn to help train my australian shepherd and liked his approach of positive reinforcement. I've done dog training classes in the past, but hands down I've never learned as much as I did by going through this program. I took at least a page of notes during every session which aided me greatly when we practiced during the week. I literally feel like I have a book of knowledge now and could train any new dog on my own now. And the only reason I think I could do that is because of the copious notes I was asked to take each week during our training sessions. My dog is super well behaved, was able to learn all the skills, and is very obedient now. I can't thank Tom and K9 Katelyn enough for helping me train my dog.
Elisa was incredible! My dog Frida was very nervous upon meeting her for the first time, but Elisa remained patient and worked with Frida until she was comfortable. She’s very easygoing and communicative about her strategy and what needs to be done and how to do it. At the end of Frida’s training I felt confident that her behavior would improve. I can’t thank Elisa enough!
Kim did an outstanding Job training our 12 week old Bluenose pitbull "Blue". She is patient and persistent and she creates iimmediate results. At the end of the two weeks Blue no longer jumps up on people when they walk in and will sit stay heel and lay down on command. I highly reccomend Kim to anyone that is looking to have a well mannered dog.
I have to be honest, I am a veteran with PTSD which comes accompanied with a lot of anxiety so my trust level is below ground level, I take it to the extreme when new people come around by passively interrogating them. Anita is AWESOME!!! not only was Airo taken care of PERFECTLY but she even did some training with him and now our little guy knows the command (Sit) and (Down) and he doesnt jump all over us and the kids anymore. She did this training in 8 hours time, I felt so relieved when I came home and seen she also organized his area better for play and activity and gave him some leash training. I wont use anybody else, Anita is not just a sitter for us, she is now our friend!!! Her Southern hospitality, open and caring personality and her way with animals is phenomenal, I am so glad I went with her... Please if you are looking for anyone Anita is IT!!! Just dont use her too much because we need her too ;)
We used Thumbtack to get quotes on dog training and were very impressed with the process and how responsive Hunter Canine was. Andrew answered all of our questions, was super easy going and really stood out from the rest of the trainers we interviewed. We chose in-home training for our 15-week-old puppy because my husband and I had never had a dog before and were clueless. We could not believe how quickly Andrew taught Henri to walk on the leash and to be a good boy in his crate! Andrew was calm, patient and very nice - we can't wait until our next training session with Andrew and highly recommend Hunter Canine.
Cat was phenomenal. She is a very kind woman and made dog training fun and easy.
Brandi gave us an awesome evaluation of a 6mo old puppy we were thinking of adopting and she had great training suggestions. However, a sudden medical emergency with my husband changed plans for adoption at this time.
I just love how she help me to get my dog to stay off of my little siblings and the other dogs too. I love how she has my little brothers be involved with the training. She is so good with dogs and I recommend her she will give you good tips
Honest, ethical, and truly want to see results.... they are the first of the many trainers that we have tried that explained everything & showed us what to do.. they had our very fear aggressive dog walking beside them & eating out of their hands (literally) within 30 minutes!! I would recommend these guys to anyone that is having training problems..don't send ur dog away for thousands ... let these guys come to u... for affordable pricing & quick results!!
I Don't know what I would have done without Scott. He sure was a big help in training my dog. I would highly recomend him. So glad I found him on line.
Hubby and I had to take a trip out to Chicago and didn't know what to do with our new cat Axle! Axle was found on the streets, in a car engine, trying to stay warm and we had just adopted her a few months prior. I contacted Diana and Citizen K9 last-minute, in a bit of a panic because I was uneasy of leaving Axle alone and with a stranger. Diana was a Godsend. She asked me questions beforehand that I didn't even think about bringing up, like if Axle was an independent or needy cat. She really knows her stuff. She sent me a picture of Axle while we were gone, which really put me at ease. Everything went smoothly and we were beyond satisfied with the service. Would definitely recommend and use again!
Madison is awesome she is a real professional she is polite good with dogs and there human counter parts I would recommend her to anyone that has puppy issues in a heartbeat.
Anton worked with us on training our Aussie puppy Bailey. Bailey was a little crazy and we knew we needed professional help to train him. Lorenzo's was referred by our vet, along with several other trainers. After speaking with each of the companies they referred and speaking to other personal recommendations we received from friends, we went with Lorenzo's. From the first time I spoke with Anton, I felt a trust in him. He was very understanding of what we wanted and worked with us until both he and the family thought Bailey was in a good place with his training. Anton was very understanding of each of our family members and where they were personally at with Bailey's training. He took the extra time on each session to make sure we were working with Bailey and comfortable with the lessons we had previously used, as well as the new lesson for the day. He was also very accommodating to our work and school schedules, which helped us tremendously. The cost of the training and tools were more expensive than what we were originally looking to spend, we feel that the training program was totally worth the expense. We continue to work with Bailey and his training on a personal level. What is even better is that we have the option to take him to group training sessions on a regular basis with Lorenzo's for as long as we would like. I would recommend Lorenzo's very highly.
Being involved with Schutzhund for the past 10 years, and more recently AKC, i have attended several seminars. But, it was not until a couple of years ago when i attended my first seminar with Uschi that everything came together. When our club was later asked who they would want to bring back for another seminar, everyone said Uschi, hands down! Since then i have traveled long distances to attend her seminars, and it is always well worth it! My relationship with my dog has improved and i am more confident as a handler. When no one else could help with training challenges with my dog, it was Uschi who took us to the next level! I am also now doing agility with my dog and Uschi has helped so much with that too! I always get compliments on my dogs performance! Uschi trains the handler and can read a dog better than anyone i have ever trained with! Not just one breed of dog, but ANY breed! Not just Schutzhund but AKC obedience and agility! I always look forward to training with Uschi!. She is patient but firm and always fun! Uschi is absolutely the best trainer i have ever worked with!
What makes WhiteHeart K9 standout from the rest is our attention to detail and change in behavior from the owner and dog as they truly become a team.
Personalized one-on-one training with up front expectations and goals. You learn first hand how to communicate and accomplish things with your pup, not by miracle programs or expensive gadgets.
I go out of my way to help ensure the animals are well taken care of, above and beyond.
I teach dogs basic obedience: sit, down, stay, sit stay, down stay, come, leave it, wait, boundaries, etc. Call today for a free quote.
We work with disabled folks to help then train their own service dogs. We offer programs for mobility assistance, wheelchair assistance, PTSD Service Dogs as well as public access training and testing. We also offer boarding and training for basic house manners and obedience training.
I have the experience of training many different species of animals. I believe there are many different ways to train one thing, you just have to figure out what works best for the animal and the trainer.
