Dog training type
Elisa was easy to contact, very punctual and extremely professional. In just 2 training sessions we have taught our 15 week old rescue "Bandit" to sit and stay, and come to us off leash from a distance of 20 feet. We also have been able to curb the biting/teething which is often associated with a puppy. She focuses on training the trainer/owner as much as the dog which I believe has made all the difference. I too can sit and stay....all kidding aside I would recommend Elisa to anyone in need of a dog trainer and have already sung her praises to many family members, friends and fellow pet owners.Sep 4, 2019Verified
Elisa was fantastic to work with. She did amazing at teaching me the skills I needed to train my newest dog. She was flexible with her schedule and on time for all appointments. Very reasonably priced compared to other trainers as well. In just 5 lessons, my rescue from the Humane Society went from being unruly and destructive around the home, to a huge cuddle bug that has great manners and responds well to commands. You should definitely contact Fit Dog Training if you've got a pup that needs obedience training.Oct 6, 2019Verified
Elisa is awesome to work with and has made an absolute huge difference in Gracie's (our dog) behavior. In 4 lessons we have trained Gracie in sit/stay. down/stay, going to her place (bed) and coming when called "here". We still need to work daily but the progress has been amazing. We had used two different training companies in the past with other dogs and results were minimal. I feel like we have been trained by Elisa on how to teach our dog commands- what a difference. Elisa is always on-time, texts confirmation the day before and is also willing to answer questions. Great value.Mar 5, 2019Verified
Elisa is an excellent trainer! My dogs love her ; and we are now able to enjoy our babies!! No jumping, I can walk them in a leash, too! They actually mind!! I would highly recommend Elisa for any dog training needs you may have. She really listens to what you have to say about your dogs, in relation to your family; and fits the training to your needs. We actually looked forward to her coming!May 3, 2019Verified
We were very happy with Elisa’ training of both us, and our puppy/dog Bowie. Elisa is very knowledgeable, experienced and professional. Because of these qualities she is able to adapt her training methods to the dog. Bowie presented several challenges during his training and Elisa didn’t miss a beat. The training was progressive, thorough and successful. We have been able to stop unwanted behaviors and Bowie reliably follows our commands. Very happy and worth the money!Feb 10, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a few different options and services depending on the clients needs and goals.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I talk with the owner to find out what their needs are. Once I understand their needs and the dogs needs, I customer tailor a training plan specifically for them. We usually work together once a week for an hour, and the amount of sessions needed is determined on the the desired goals of the owner!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been working with and training dogs for 20 years. I have 20 years of hands on experience. I started my training as an apprentice to a successful dog trainer in MA. I then became a trainer and have had my own business since. I have done more advanced training with a military dog trainer in Phoenix, and am up to date on all training methods.
