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.
I am fostering a dog that had aggression issues with other dogs and was nervous when it came to meeting new humans. Misty spent 3 weeks with Andrew and came back a much more confident dog. Misty had gone through training with two other trainers but the outcome left her still basically with the same issues. I highly recommend Andrew and Hunter Canine.
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
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.
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.
David has worked with multiple dogs within my rescue and has done amazing. He is great with anything from basic obedience to helping dogs with aggression! He is an asset to the dog community.
I highly recommend Brenda to help with any type of training for you and your dogs. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. But the thing that I love most about her, is that she cares about my dogs as much as I do!
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.
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.
Karen is an amazing trainer. Not only that, she has made my dog into a whole new pup! I got my dog from the shelter and she was extremely timid and scared of everything. The shelter claimed that she would never be able to be around any sort of dog ever and that she needed to be kept far away from them. My dog would always run and hide from a stranger who tried to pet her and even act out in an aggressive manor if she was scared enough. Everything has been turned around. My pup is able to be around any dog she wants and she's become extremely social. She's not as afraid of women as she used to be (still working on the men). I honestly cannot thank Karen enough for the strong bond she has created between my dog and I. I also love Karens passion for rescue animals, and how much she cares for each and every one of her animals and the animals she trains success. She is truly an amazing trainer, and an amazing person as well! I cannot recommend her enough.
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.
