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.
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!
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!
We brought our pit bull puppy to Andrew with the hopes he would turn out to be a great, happy family dog. Jax has been home for about 2 weeks and we've seen so many improvements. There's no doubt he will turn out to be a loving, we'll behaved part of our family thanks to his training at hunter canine. We have since then enrolled our other dog in their boot camp program confident we will see great results again.
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!!
She took care of our two dogs while we had a last minute over 2 night trip. She did not stay at our house but made the drive twice daily to feed, walk, and play with them. Mary is very personable and I can tell she loves animals. Our dogs adored her and we will definitely be calling her in the future.
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!
I arrived home and my 3 dogs were happy and healthy. My home was in perfect condition. I will use Two Dogs Dancing and Brandi again!
Just met her but she has a great home for my dog and was very friendly and professional, i know my dog will love it there!
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.
Julie from Precious Pet Care has been caring for our dogs for about 3 years now. She is excellent! Initially we had a single dog who was over the age of 10 and just couldn't go to a kennel without major stress for all concerned. Enter Julie. She helped care for our beloved little girl for both short and long periods of time. We would always return to find our sweet pup happy and well cared for and our home in immaculate condition. As our pup neared the end of her life she had some medical issues that required anyone caring for her to go above and beyond. Julie was there and treated her with love and compassion and our dog was never the least bit stressed while left in her care. After a 9 month period we now have 2 new "old" dogs that we adopted last year We immediately contacted Julie when we needed a sitter. She has been out to take care of them several times and these pups love her as well. She was here just last week and was greeted with big tail wags and wet kisses. Initially I was unsure about a total stranger in my home with our first dog who was first and foremost a family member. This was even after a lengthy phone conversation and a face to face interview! Julie arrived for the interview promptly with references in hand and quickly bonded with our dog. It's hard to believe now that I felt that way as I now think of her as an extended member of the family. She's responsible, dependable and caring, I can't give her a high enough review!
Naseem was a godsend to me when I needed her in an emergency! She picked up and delivered my precious girl. She is very good w/ animals and my cat was quite at home and comfortable with her. I highly recommend Naseem she is also a very sweet girl.
I booked with Samantha through DogVacay and have used her regularly. From the time she responded to my message, to the meet and greet, and all through each stay my dog has had with her she has kept us informed and happy. My dog always comes home happy and worn out! She has two fantastic dogs, they are super friendly and my dog has a blast with them. Her puppy is a ball of energy and can keep up with my crazy girl! Samantha was even available to me when I had last minute travel plans over memorial day weekend, which was awesome because I know how busy she was that weekend! I will use her every time I need to as long as she is available.
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.
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.
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!
