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!
If you are looking for a good dog trainer, I would highly recommend Tom from K9Katelynn! We have tried in the past to have our dogs both swim and run on a treadmill. We never accomplished either until we hired Tom. Also, we were having some issues with behavior which Tom aslo helped! He had us write notes as he trained all of us and these proved to be very helpful!
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.
Kim is an amazing dog trainer. Our dogs are calm after just 3 sessions. The dogs like the training as much as we do.
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!
Wow !! the only word I can describe our experience with Hunter Canine and its Staff Trainers is AWESOME, not only do they teach the dogs to behave and break bad habits but their teachings are more or less to train us handlers, because that is exactly what a dog requires is a dog owner that is comited to the continue training of the animal, especially since we have a Beautiful Belgium Malinois name Kenzi. and Malinois are very active dogs they must be keeped busy. We have been going to Chad and Andrew for the past 11 months and our dog has become such a pleasure to have around everyone, she is naturally very loving dog so the team has worked with her attributes. We have enrolled her on all the available classes from beginner obedience to intermediate obedience, and she is ready for advance obedience, we also enrolled her on the Good citizen class which she aced Yeah !! she also has done diving classes which actually for a Mali it comes very natural but they have worked on our techniques. anyway I recommend Chad Hunter and Andrew Steinkohl as a trainer not only for Belgium Malinois but for all breeds I have seen first hand this guys love dogs and they basically adopt every single one of them. We have left Kenzi in his 2 week bootcamp initially and then in October we left her there for a second 2 week stay. They are just Awesome.
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!!
Star is a great trainer. Out dog listens so well with her. He is learning to be a great dog
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!
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've used Two Dogs Dancing for overnight stays at my home with my pack of very boisterous corgis, Pom and rat terrier and one horse. We have an older corgi with a brain tumor and are not comfortable leaving him unattended for extended periods of time. This summer we scheduled a 10 day over seas vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that all our pets would be well care for. We received daily updates and pictures. All our pets were properly pampered while we were gone including our horse, who doesn't understand why I don't provide the yummy carrots like Mary does. Our dogs are over joyed when they see Mary and Brandy outside of pet sitting. Our home was clean and in great condition when we returned and we were pleasantly surprised by a plate of freshly baked cookies.
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.
Dianne from Waggin' Tails responded to my request for a dog trainer immediately. She was very professional from the beginning and taught us a lot about our dogs. She trained us as a family and since her training our family is much happier and all 3 of our dogs are getting along wonderfully. She has tons of experience with all different breeds and can turn any situation that arises into a training exercise. I highly recommend Waggin' Tails to anyone in need of a trainer.
I highly, highly recommend Brenda at Awesome Mannered Canines! She is an outstanding trainer, and it is clear that she loves what she does! I have worked with a couple of other trainers over the years, and no one has wowed me until I started working with Brenda! I have taken three dogs through her group classes, and every time has been a fantastic experience. Not only do the dogs learn their commands, but they also learn how to behave around other dogs, and in public places! Brenda goes above and beyond just basic puppy training. By the end of the six week class, it is clear that each and every dog enrolled has made tremendous progress! I have also seen remarkable successes in dogs that Brenda has worked with to correct problem behaviors. Two of the dogs in Brenda's Canine Good Citizen class (which dog and I attended as well) had previously worked with her due to leash-reaction issues, and are now on their way to earning their CGC - that's amazing progress!! She helped my pit bull, Arya and I earn her Canine Good Citizen certification last year, and it's been an amazing experience. I honestly couldn't recommend her more highly!
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.
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.
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.
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!
we train dogs in the home ,one on one with the dogs and the owner together, in the dogs natural language.
