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 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.

My biggest problem with my cocker spaniel was not being able to keep the dog in the house…and he was unable to sit, wait, place, and come, after proper training the dog now stays in the house without problems, my dog can now can sit , place, wait and come on command…….I felt the training time was constant and about right. I would recommended k9katelynn and can be contacted via phone upon request. Mary E…..Cave Creek 3/1/10

I have to be honest, I am a veteran with PTSD which comes accompanied with a lot of anxiety so my trust level is below ground level, I take it to the extreme when new people come around by passively interrogating them. Anita is AWESOME!!! not only was Airo taken care of PERFECTLY but she even did some training with him and now our little guy knows the command (Sit) and (Down) and he doesnt jump all over us and the kids anymore. She did this training in 8 hours time, I felt so relieved when I came home and seen she also organized his area better for play and activity and gave him some leash training. I wont use anybody else, Anita is not just a sitter for us, she is now our friend!!! Her Southern hospitality, open and caring personality and her way with animals is phenomenal, I am so glad I went with her... Please if you are looking for anyone Anita is IT!!! Just dont use her too much because we need her too ;)

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!

Kimberly came to my home to help me with my two dogs (puppy and older dog) that seemed to be not getting along. She was willing to do an assessment and she gave me amazing feedback as to dog behavior that I did not understand. She was great at interpreting the problem and offered a wonderful solution that is already starting to work. I would highly recommend Kimberly for dog training.

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.

Kim did an outstanding job with our Rottweiler puppy. She was very thorough and we started seeing the transformation with our dog by the 2nd lesson. Her follow up with us was excellent. I highly recommend Kim to anyone that needs dog training.

I was in search of a trainer for weeks; I didn't want group classes or to leave my dog somewhere for weeks for someone else to train. I really wanted someone to come to my home and train my husband and I on managing our Springer Spaniel puppy. We hit the jackpot when we were referred to Elisa Levenbaum, Fit Dog Training. Our first meeting she said "I'm here to help break his bad habits but not break his spirit" and she has done just that. She made the lessons personalized to what we wanted to work on. Elisa, has shown us how to work with Jax and break some habits and teach him commands that he easily obeys and enjoys. She is always available for questions and has some really great advise in all areas of dog ownership. We are 6 lessons into an 8 lesson package and Jax is doing fabulous. I would highly recommend Elisa to anyone with any aged dog. Our Jax loves her and so do we!

Jessica is awesome! Within an hour long session she was able to effectively help me understand what my dog needs training wise, as well as demonstrated several techniques that worked instantaneously. She helped me set up a good plan and I am very excited for future sessions. Also, she emails you notes after each session which is so great, especially if you are detail oriented like myself. I will be recommending her to everyone!

Too bad you only offer 5 stars for your rating as my experience with Cherene and Wizedogs was so much more! When Franklin found me last year, he was pretty beat up, had been on the streets for at least 6 months! After 9 months, we realized that our love was not enough! He was pretty much limited to his pinned in area and yard. The minute he came into the house, he would have a potty melt down. We found Cherene on Thumbtack and she took him in and now we have a housebroken dog, who comes when called, sits on command AND shakes hands, heels when he walks on leash next to me and is now a big part of our family! I highly recommend Cherene for your dog training and boarding! She is definitely dog's best friend! Best call I ever made!!!

Cherene and her dog, Jäger, visited our dog at our house and was very thorough. The day care service at hers was great. Could tell our dog had any great time and wasn't crated but was able to play and be relaxed. Would recommend Oh My Dog and plan on being a regular.

This was the perfect choice for boarding and training my puppy. Cherene was fantastic at keeping me posted how my puppy was doing daily and gave me all the information I needed to continue the training when I returned. This is a 1st class business!

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!

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!

I'm a first time dog owner and really had no idea what I was doing. We found Brandy on Thumbtack site and we decided to give it a shot. Max was already 7 months old so we had no idea what she would know so the idea of obedience training sounded wonderful. Brandy definitely taught the basics as well as the other things that we wanted with our dog. Brandy also talked through issues we've had, given great advice and tips and Working with Max on them has definitely made a huge difference. Max has learnt some amazing behaviors. He can sit, come, sleep and walk loosely on a leash. Our bond with our puppy is incredible and we owe a lot to Brandy for helping me overcome my fear of dogs. I recommend her for owners with dogs of any age. Brandy came to our house and totally understood my dog's dilemmas. She taught positive training techniques that actually worked! She helped us prevent Max from resource guarding and regain order in the house.

Brandy is amazing! Our dog requires a lot of patience and we couldn't ask for a more professional resource than Brandy. She is working with us to help make our business trips less stressful for our dog and she is persistent in her efforts to build a strong relationship with our dog. With our business travel increasing, 5 business week trips, yes that is correct, five weeks of trips on the books for the coming months so far... We are extremely thankful to have connected with Brandy.

We used Bee Professional Pet Services for the first time. We were not disappointed! The service is fairly priced, and highly personalized, she even has 25 minute dog walking for a cheeper price for Daily Visits! We took advantage of that! She is also highly trained; her skills were showing as soon as she entered our home. We have 2 Pitbull mixes and 3 cats. We've received daily check-in text messages and pictures of our pals while away and a Daily Logged Notebook and Folder that stays with us for next time. Every special request has been happily accomodated. She even showed up 10 minutes early to the interview!

When our original house sitter moved out of town I was very nervous about finding someone new. I have a Doberman Pinscher who is high energy but Bri was great with him and they hit it off right away! She stayed in our house while we went out of town for a week. During her stay, she did some training with him and sent us texts and pictures to ease our minds! She also cared for our cat and watered our plants. I felt very comfortable leaving our fur babies in her care and when we came back our house was super clean and animals were happy!! I highly recommend her and we are definitely using her again!! :)

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.

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.

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!
