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!

My experience with K9 Katelynn dog training has been excellent. When Tom first met my dog, I described him to a friend as "magical with dogs" - silly, but true. It is immediately evident that he has significant experience training both dogs and their owners. It takes work to make progress; I felt a bit like I was in school with my two 20 minute sessions (at a minimum) of dog training "homework" per day. It was very rewarding to see my dog's progress. Tom had an answer to every question I asked, and if you do what he says, you WILL see results. That being said - you have to do what he says! If you are looking for someone to magically fix your dog, you are in the wrong place. Tom teaches you - the owner - how to work with your dog and train him effectively.

I called Nate Dog Training because I was at my wit's end with my dog Rizzo. Rizzo is a pug/brussels griffon mix (we think) and is estimated to be between 3-4 years old. The rescue I adopted Rizzo from didn't know much about his background, only that he was found in a park and seemed to be very weary of men. I thought Rizzo would eventually warm up to my male roommate, but he didn't show any improvement after several months. He would hide behind desks and under beds when my roommate was in the room and refused to let anyone but me take him outside. He also had a habit of barking continuously when left alone. So, I called Nate. I thought it was too good to be true when Nate told me it might take as little as one session to see improvement, but it was true! Rizzo's behavior has improved greatly in a fairly short amount of time after only one training session. The methods Nate uses are fairly easy to follow and make perfect sense. He even made suggestions for food/treat choices that Rizzo not only loves, but are healthy for him! Overall, I felt that the training guidelines Nate provided are incredibly helpful and I'm optimistic that Rizzo's behavior will continue to improve as we continue to follow the regiment. Best of all, Nate is always available to answer questions. I have already texted him several times to get clarification on some things or insight on behaviors Rizzo has started to develop and Nate has responded promptly. I cannot recommend Nate Dog Training highly 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 contacted them about my dogs constant barking. Elisa contacted me, asked for more info, and came up with a game plan. On the day of our appointment, she was early, which was nice. After seeing out problem first hand, she showed us how to use the training collers properly. We ran thru a few trial runs, and only after we felt comfortable, she left. Fast forward a few hours, and its like having new dogs. We still have a ways to go, but she gave us the tools to.properly fix our problem. I highly recommend Fit Dog Training!!!

Being new to dog ownership and the "dog world" I was skeptical about training in general. I knew I didn't want some kid from petsmart training me dog but at the same time I wasn't looking for someone who was an elitist and looked down on me for not knowing much about training. I found hunter canine on thumbtack kind of at random. Andrew called me and thoroughly answered all my questions and concerns. The price was fair and comparable to other professional trainers I had inquired about. Having just completed beginner obedience I can say that these guys are great. It's obvious from the minute you start class that Andrew and Chad are passionate about what they do. The facility is amazing, it's big, it's clean, and the trainers are knowledgable and helpful. In just 8 short weeks we've seen massive changes our dogs behavior. The class objectives are clear and the trainers are always attentive to any issue you may have with your dog during class. Even in the group classes the trainers still provide ample one on one time with each dog and their handlers. We enjoyed the class so much that we have enrolled our dog in the CGC prep class and plan on doing more training in the future. I would recommend Hunter Canine to anyone looking for training, if you show up to class and do your part (practicing what you've learned) you won't be disappointed...

Since most dog training is for the owners and not the pet, Cat knows how to train both animal and owner. What I love about her methods is that they are all non aggressive or punitive. She could be Scottsdale's Dog Whisper she is so good.

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.

An overall great experience, always on time, helpful, knowledgeable and left with a list of priority tasks each week. Always available to contact with questions and clarification. Great training at a very decent price as well! Has helped change some negative behaviors in my service dog in training so he can get back on the path to an amazing working dog!

Dianne was great! She was personable and flexible working with my schedule. My dog made great strides with her, and we are well on our way to getting him registered as a service dog! If I wasn't moving, I'd be continuing my training and training my future dogs with Dianne. I 100% recommend her services.

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!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
