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.
This was great training for my puppy. He is so much more disciplined and even calmer! He picks up on new tricks faster and still retains the old tricks he’s learned. He now has manners and never really misbehaves anymore!! This was an awesome experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a dog training service!
Kim Thomas certainly puts you and your dog at ease the minute you meet her. Our Shih Tzu attended her Group Training and an additional Advanced Training course. As a result, we have a well mannered and behaved dog that obeys commands anywhere we go. She was also great in teaching us how to be better dog parents. I HIGHLY recommend her for training your dog. You will get great results.
Anita is looking after our two dogs, walking them and doing training with our puppy. She is excellent! She gets on very well with the dogs (and our cats), goes above and beyond expectations and does extra little jobs we haven't even asked for! The animals love her and I don't know what we would do without her!
Beth does go above and beyond. She is caring and gives helpful tips on training my dog. When I leave I feel confident that my dog will be well taken care of.
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...
Renee's classes were so relaxed and fun. We got a new puppy and this was the first time I'd ever gone to dog training classes. Renee explains how a dog thinks and learns. Teaching them new things is easier than I though it would be. You do need time and patience. I wish I would have done it with our previous dogs. Thanks Renee!
Mary demonstrated compassion in caring for our dogs. When one of our dogs got sick, Mary not only cleaned up the mess, she lovingly cleaned the soiled area on my dog. Mary is a trustworthy resource and cared for our dogs as if they were her own. We highly recommend Mary, and will use her services again.
I love Brandy and Steve. They have paid very close attention to my two dogs, Charlie and Frankie. We came in with two hyper active working dogs that had little training but have picked up so much information in training class. I am trying to beg them to do a level 2 training class for my dogs to be in. I love how attentive they were before and after class with Frankie and Charlie. I also realized a lot of the work was to train me. They have trained me well. I spend 30 min a day with both of my dogs training them separately with all the tricks they taught me in there class. I would highly recommended this obedience class with Brandy and Steve. They are very reasonably priced as well as they answered my response to their services within minutes. They treat my dogs as there own and send out weekly emails regarding all the dogs in the class and what we need to work on. On the off hours of training Brandy answers my texts and sends me additional info regarding activities for working dogs that she thinks would be good for my babes. One week I didn’t have a second handler and she had her husband help me out. She’s a serious gem and moving forward I will only work with her. She’s passionate about what she does and understands dogs so well! Thanks Brandy!
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
Easy to work with, great conversation with caring, experienced dog walker...doggies are very happy!
Rebecca is so nice and so kind. She is exactly what I was looking for when training my Yorkie. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a good trainer. She was on time and very professional.
People comment on my well behaved and obedient dogs - it is because of training from Waggin' Train. Waggin Train helped me train my dogs based on my lifestyle and needs and my dogs' personality. Waggin' Train also helped me introduce an adopted dog into my home. Amazing results - the new dog is quickly learning and my other dog is loving her new sister quicker than I expected. Thanks Waggin' Train!
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.
Eileen and Ben were fabulous! They worked with us on vocal commands and how to respond to our dogs when other dogs approach. They brought their 2 pits within them to help with the training. Plus our neighbors pup (in training) was also there. We thank them and will be calling them again for more help.
I work at Walgreens as a clerk. I do pet sitting on the side for my extra interest and income. I have been dog sitting since I was a teenager. Dogs are my favorite type of animal. They are a added joy in my life, and without any interaction with them, I feel not as happy with myself, and life is not as much fun.
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.
I treat your pet as if he/she were mine, I create a bond and become a part of your pets pack.
I do a majority of things, such as dog walking, pet sitting, filing or organizing paperwork and any kind of assisting or job you may need. I'm a quick learner, and I am willing to try any job. In high school, I took two photography classes as well as a childcare, and medical class.
I love dogs, and I need a job, so with the fact that I love dogs made me decide to become a dog walker/sitter. I have experience with watching and walking dogs. While watching your dog, I like to include playtime, walking, feeding, and cleaning (your dog).
