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!
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!
Kim is a wonderful dog trainer she helped my wife and I train our two month old great Dane she was very stern and she showed love at the same time which was very important to us she taught him several commands very quickly after the training Kim continuously calls tofollow up and make sure that he is still doing all of his commands well which he is my wife and I are very thankful that we found Kim and we highly recommend her to anyone that needs help training a puppy or even an adult dog we really think you would be very satisfied with someone of her skills
We have used Anitas services for the last couple years and always feel so comfortable when we are away knowing she is taking such good care of our dogs!!!
I was uncomfortable finding a dog walker that I could trust and whom I felt comfortable handing over the key to my house. I started a new job and was gone all day and needed a good dog walker. Beth has been amazing. She is great with animals and is very trustworthy and consistent. She sends me a text and pic or video every day she walks my dog Cooper. I can tell how happier he is when I get home after work. He loves his daily walks with Beth. If you are feeling nervous like I was, you will be happy with Beth as your dog walker.
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!!
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!
After speaking to Mary, I felt confident that she would take good care of my pet bunny, Geneva. She is VERY knowledgeable about animals and animal health, she seemed gentle and made a connection with Geneva easily. She was also quickly to respond and great about sending updates. I felt safe leaving my keys with her and she went out of her way to return them promptly. I will definitely hire her again in the future!
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
By far the best dog trainer there is, you'd be crazy not to use Precision Paws!!
Jocelyn takes very good care of my dog. I am very happy with her service. She is also very flexible. Thanks for helping!!
Scott is an amazing dog trainer! I didn't think my dog could be trained but after only one session she started to calm down and obey commands. He worked with her on her aggression towards guests coming into our home as well as obeying simple commands. Maddie, my dog, is still doing good even after the training! I'm so grateful for Scott helping us!
At our wits end, and desperate for help with our new puppy, Enza, we asked our Veterinarian for suggestions on what we should try. Our pup was adorable and very smart, but very hard headed and defiant. The Vet told us to call Lorenzo's Dog Training Team because they were very impressed with a demonstration they had just performed in their office. We contacted Galen Dudzik and from the moment she arrived to evaluate our puppy, we were amazed at how well she was able to communicate and gain respect immediately from Enza. Galen was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Her training not only taught our dog to behave it taught us how to be better dog owners. Galen was very accommodating to our scheduling needs and each new session was welcomed by both us and our dog. Her continued patience with both us and Enza is only surpassed by her professionalism, passion, and knowledge. We look forward to our next level of training and know that our dog does as well. Thank you Lorenzo's Dog Training Team for your wonderful program and techniques. Galen is a dog trainer with a big heart.
An overall great experience, always on time, helpful, knowledgeable and left with a list of priority tasks each week. Always available to contact with questions and clarification. Great training at a very decent price as well! Has helped change some negative behaviors in my service dog in training so he can get back on the path to an amazing working dog!
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.
Love love Damars Pet Sitting. I came back from a 5 day trip and my pups were so calm and pleasant. I believe they are dog whisperers!! When I got back, both dogs had their nails trimmed without even asking as part of the service. I received daily updates including prices which does bring piece of mind especially since I have one dog with medical needs. They are fantastic and I HIGHLY recommend Damars Pet Sitting. Oh and the dogs get a nice little report card! Too cute.
Naseem did a great job with my dog. She sent pictures everyday and I felt very comfortable knowing my baby was in good hands. I highly recommend her!
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.
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!
