Dog training type
John was great with my crazy German Shepherd puppy, Freyja. His training techniques are constructive but also fun. Not only does he help train your dog but he also helps teach you how to deal with them appropriately and successfully.Apr 4, 2019VerifiedBalanced Pooches In Home Dog Training's reply
Thanks Ryan, you did a great job and I wish you all the very best!!!
John was fantastic with his training. Not only was he punctual, he was very professional. His training technique was fun and he really taught me a lot and gave me the confidence to take my emotional support animal, Betsy outside for walks. I dreaded going outside because Betsy didn't like other dogs. I feel like Betsy and I have a better understanding now of who is in charge. We have a stronger bond now and I can say and be proud that Betsy is becoming a balanced pooche!! It's amazing how fast better behavior is noticed. Thank You John. I will keep you posted on Betsy progress outside. Because of your training, I get to keep Betsy!May 17, 2019VerifiedBalanced Pooches In Home Dog Training's reply
Your welcome, I wish you many years of fun with Betsy!!! Continue with the exercises and you did a great job!!!
What a great experience working with my dog. John showed how to get her to behave when appropriate and made a difficult moving situation very settled for her. If u need a trainer, use John for sure.Mar 9, 2019Verified
John was very reliable, great with the puppy, and working with me and my kids on teaching us how to better communicate and train our dog. I would highly recommend him.Oct 19, 2016Verified
John was so helpful with our Jack Russell mix Doug. Doug has made so much progress in such a short time. He was acting aggressive when people came into our house and after a few weeks he is doing so much better. John's methods are positive and very effective. Doug loves participating in the training and we are on the right track to having a perfectly behaved dog.Sep 26, 2016Verified
