We have a small 14 month old terrier mix whom we have had for about 9 months now and we just adopted an 8 week old lab mix. Our main concern was aggression with our older pup and we didn't want her passing that on to our new pup. Bruce helped us to understand the root of her aggression and to see that it was actually something that could be easily worked on. He didn't come in and try to "fix" our dog like some trainers, but rather helped empower us to help her be the best dog she could be! Bruce also helped us to leash train her because she pulled on the leash a lot when walking. Within minutes, he got her walking better than we could with months of training!! Even though we called about our older dog, Bruce also helped us to get our newest pup accustomed to being on a leash and comfortable with it. He is very knowledgeable and actually listens to concerns without judgement. I would highly recommend Bruce!
Tom has helped us tremendously with our pitbull/boxer mix Bogey. When we first got Bogey he was very skittish, unsure of new people, and dog aggressive. After working with the dog using everything Tom has taught us, we have seen a drastic improvement. Bogey doesn't seem to be as shy, he's improving around other dogs, and he's respecting us more and more every day. Step aside Cesar, Tom is the real life dog whisperer!
A lot of dog trainers want to board your dog for months and return it to you fully trained. Then they transfer the training to you. All this for thousands of dollars. No thank you. Nate came to my house and worked with Charlie and me in the environment where we live and walk. He said 4 lessons would be enough and it was. Thanks Nate.
Elisa is one of the best dog trainers I have had. Not only is she professional towards me, but she has shown an amazing amount of love, patience, and genuine care for my rescue dog. That was the most important factor for me, and she exceeded expectations. I'm referring her to all my family and friends!
Kim is an amazing dog trainer. Our dogs are calm after just 3 sessions. The dogs like the training as much as we do.
I have tried obedience classes with my exuberant, hyper maltese previously with limited success. Cat trained my eccentric little pup to sit, wait, leave it, touch and come, as well as worked on her barking with one week of daily one-on-one training. It is obvious that she is very experienced and talented. I felt safe knowing how happy my puppy would be there with her big beautiful yard and friendly demeanour. I highly recommend Cat for dog training!!
Our experience with Hunter Canine has been great. They have gone above and beyond to work with us. Our dog had aggressive fearful behavior and with their training she has so much improved in just a few short weeks. We are very thankful.
Prior to meeting Renee, I had dropped out of multiple training classes sponsored by other private trainers because my dog and I weren't confident about our work outside of the classroom. We successfully completed Renee's Basic Obedience class and went on to take her Class in the Park to strengthen the skills we learned with added distractions of people, bicycles, little league games etc. Her ability to lead the class in a relaxed manner and her willingness to provide support between classes was the key to our success. Her extensive experience allows her to provide alternative solutions in situations where a particular dog isn't responding to an exercise. She has knowledge of a multitude of dog breeds and knows some of the training challenges that can come up with certain breeds. One of my issues was walking my 100 lb. lab without being pulled all over the neighborhood. After using Renee's training methods, not only do I now enjoy walking my dog, but I have actually had people stop me and ask how I was able to get my dog to walk so well on a leash!
Trained my dog Roxy she definitely has reasonable price, professionalism, and a job well done.
As a first time dog parent, I wanted to get my lab puppy into training as soon as possible. Roxann answered my numerous questions about training and even met with me to answer more questions before we agreed to work together. Roxann worked with my pup and me for five weeks. She also gave tutorials to my parents who were in town so all were communicating the same way to the dog. Roxann was patient and reviewed the lessons as needed. Now my dog is in puppy kindergarten. I am so very glad for the private lessons with Roxann before going to this group class. My dog is much more successful because of the private lessons.
I am the proud owner of 7 special needs dogs. But Sherry was a special case she had been rescued from death row 6 times I had used other trainers to help with her aggression to no avail. I finally found Steve Mark who with only two sessions Sherry was no longer attacking my other dogs. I have referred Steve Mark to other people who have also been very satisfied. Everyone says their dogs are crazy about him I think he wears dog treat cologne I am very Pleased and would use and recommend Steve Mark again Patricia Thomas
Scott is an amazing dog trainer! I didn't think my dog could be trained but after only one session she started to calm down and obey commands. He worked with her on her aggression towards guests coming into our home as well as obeying simple commands. Maddie, my dog, is still doing good even after the training! I'm so grateful for Scott helping us!
Had Bill train 4 of my dogs back to back. Night and day difference. Huskies, Carolina and a pitbull/boxer mix. He knows exactly what to do, when to do it, how to explain it. You won't find anyone else with his experience, expertise, depth of knowledge, education.... Or willingness to adjust. All around outstanding dog trainer and person. We also did interview 8 other trainers from "big companies" to small little guys. Bill did explain and give us exactly what we wanted and were looking for. No bs, real answers, real results. When neighbors ask "do you train dogs" you know your dog trainer taught you well haha. Amazing results.
Karen is an amazing trainer. Not only that, she has made my dog into a whole new pup! I got my dog from the shelter and she was extremely timid and scared of everything. The shelter claimed that she would never be able to be around any sort of dog ever and that she needed to be kept far away from them. My dog would always run and hide from a stranger who tried to pet her and even act out in an aggressive manor if she was scared enough. Everything has been turned around. My pup is able to be around any dog she wants and she's become extremely social. She's not as afraid of women as she used to be (still working on the men). I honestly cannot thank Karen enough for the strong bond she has created between my dog and I. I also love Karens passion for rescue animals, and how much she cares for each and every one of her animals and the animals she trains success. She is truly an amazing trainer, and an amazing person as well! I cannot recommend her enough.
I highly recommend Brenda to help with any type of training for you and your dogs. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. But the thing that I love most about her, is that she cares about my dogs as much as I do!
Myra is an amazing human being and a GREAT trainer of dogs & humans. She has changed my life with helping me train my AWESOME Service Dog.
I needed some serious help with my pitbull who had become impossible to walk on a leash. He lunged at other dogs and pulled me wherever he wanted to. Anton Yablonsky evaluated my dog AND myself, came up with a plan and started right away change the interaction between Nigel and myself. He was professional and explained how we would do things during his training and why. His approach was firm, but kind and his love for what he does is quite evident. Four years later and I still have an obedient, well behaved companion. And four years later I know that Anton will be there to answer any questions I may have. I wouldn't use or recommend any one else or any other method of training.
Searching for a dog trainer is not easy, let alone if you have specific demands. This was my situation. Joyce was not quite capable of accommodating what I was requesting, but she has continued to reach out to me to try to source a solution for my specific situation. That alone, someone who didn't get my business, by no fault of her own, has repeatedly checked in seeing if she could still help some how some way speaks VOLUMES on her character. If my situation was a typical one, I can assure you I would have hired her.
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!
