Bruce is a great dog trainer and a dog lover. I think it is established intrinsically in his soul. I have a dachshund and just with few of his advices most of my problems with my gig has been removed. I really recommend him.
One of the first things that drew me to Amy of Dog Speak Training was her forward and upfront response to my inquiry. She gave me prices and expectations right away, which I found other trainers didnt want to give me until they were in my home and met my dogs. I felt I was able to make an educated decision upfront before inviting anyone to my home. We had an incredible phone chat to set the appointment and she gave me some tips and pointers to help right away before our in home appointment to get me by through some of the frustrations with my dogs. I chose the 2 hour session and would highly recommend the 2 hour for your first appointment because we were able to get so much more accomplished. If I had booked the 1 hour, I would have just booked an additional one hour session the following week anyway. The time frame expectations for behavior changes were very reasonable, and Im sure my dogs might be an exception, but almost every training tool she used worked within a day even when she said to give them a week. Amy is thorough, kind, and extremely knowledgeable and educated in dog training. She also has a wonderful personality and fascinating background and I find myself getting off topic to chat about just anything! I was thoroughly impressed after our first session and will continue to use her services for further in depth training and even dog boarding. Amy goes above and beyond any expectation Ive ever had for a trainer and Im so thrilled we found her. Our home is so much more peaceful with the dogs new habits. I dont want to spoil any surprises but Amy comes with her bag of tricks and treats, shes like the Mary Poppins of dogs ;) Thanks so much Amy!!

I contacted Nate a few months back since I had lost control of my two German Shepherds. I called several places and they wanted to send my dogs to boot camp, which I was not interested in. Within minutes of Nate working with me and my dogs, I was able to be back in control. Nate taught me exactly what I need to know, he listed to what I needed to learn, and took to the time to explain why my dogs were doing what they were doing. Nate is fantastic and reasonably priced. Keep up the great work!!!!
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.
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!!
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.
She was simply Amazing! Very careful & patient with my dog even though he can be a bit stubborn. She removed tons of shedding, washed him thoroughly, and cleaned up everything as if nothing ever happened. I highly recommend her!
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!!!
Kathrine is a dog training miracle worker! When I got a young dog from a rescue he was very lovable but unruly. Kathrine taught me how to see things from his perspective and gently guide him into a great companion. I have recommended her to friends and all dog owners who truly want to train their dogs without harsh methods. The training takes work but itâs worth it.
When we welcomed our Labrador retriever puppy, Charlie, into our family almost three years ago, we wanted her to be a part of our active lifestyle in a stress-free way. We knew that would require an investment of our time and resources into basic obedience training, but what we didn’t realize at the time was how profound an impact that training would have on us as a family. We first left Charlie with Angelika and Tino when she was just 10 weeks old for a 2-week board and train in their home. We had interviewed other dog trainers prior but it wasn’t until we met Angelika that we really felt at peace with leaving our new puppy. The foundation of on-leash training Charlie received during that stay was an eye-opening experience into what was possible for her. In the weekly follow-up classes that we attended (which we still attend 2.5 years later!) it became apparent to us just how much of dog training is human training. Angelika and Tino worked patiently with us as we learned to effectively communicate with Charlie as leaders of her pack. We also realized how much Charlie thrives in a training environment. Learning and practicing new commands has provided a purposeful, positive outlet for her energy and has helped to foster her happy, calm, and loving temperament. Much to Charlie’s delight, we continue to send her back for board and trains (i.e. “camp”) whenever we go out of town for more than a couple of days. She’s progressed so much in her off-leash training that she is able to stay off-leash while at the park, hiking, and on other outdoor adventures. We have complete and total trust that we’re in control of her at all times, allowing us to enjoy these experiences with absolutely zero stress. We’re not exaggerating when we say that on a daily basis, we receive compliments from complete strangers that we meet in parks, on trails, or in other public places who are blown away by how well behaved Charlie is. Aside from obedience training, Angelika and Tino have been instrumental in training Charlie to perform a number of medically-related service tasks, enabling me to have her registered as my service animal and join me wherever I go. She’s also an appreciated visitor at Craig’s mom’s memory care home, where, thanks to our work with Quality K9, she is able to interact with all of the residents in a calm and gentle manner, bringing joy into their lives with her regular visits. Our time with Charlie has been amazing and Angelika and Tino have played an integral role in that. In working with them, we’ve realized that you can’t put a price on the quality of life that comes from having a well-trained companion. As long as we have dogs, they’ll have Angelika and Tino in their lives!
