The over all training. Bruce took the time to teach me on how to walk, handle bad behaviours and general obedience training on my two puppies. I would recommend him to my families and friends in the future.
Highly recommend K9Katelynn - had a wonderful experience and gained so much training knowledge. My Portuguese Water Dog puppy has learned so many things and is improving every day with his obedience training. Big thanks to K9Katelynn!
I luckily found Nate Dog Training on this site in a desperate search for a trainer after an incident at my home while I was out of town that left my Puggle with only one eye. I have a 9 year old Catahoula mix, a 10 year old Terrier mix and a recently added 9 year old Puggle mix, all rescues. The Catahoula has always been unpredictable with other dogs and had even been labeled "dog aggressive" by another trainer. When the decision was made to rescue the puggle, it wasn't taken lightly. We met several times and did trial house visits & sleepovers to be sure he was a good fit. The Catahoula had been great with him for about 6 months when all of the sudden she attacked him without warning, severely injuring his left eye beyond the point of saving, and he had to have it surgically removed. I knew I needed help fast. I spoke to 3 different trainers before hiring Nate. One who said she was dog aggressive & it would be nearly impossible to fix. Another who was a very expensive boot camp type situation. And another with the response that sometimes we just need to accept the dogs limitations due to age and breed characteristics and work around it. Meaning because she was a 10 year old Catahoula, her age & genetics wouldn't allow for change. That I should accept just not being able to have her around any other dogs. Thankfully I did not listen and kept on my search and found Nate. Nate came to my home and evaluated my "pack", as a whole pack which is exactly what I needed. Most trainers address just the dog with the issue and I learned that my dogs issue was part of a larger issue with the entire pack, not just her. I watched her properly meet and interact with his dogs quite easily and he gave me hope that my situation could be resolved. Be prepared to put in some effort, after all the problem is most likely something you're doing, or not doing. In my case, we tweaked a bit of our normal routine, needed some guidance on how to properly walk together and most importantly I had to establish I was in charge. I now walk all 3 dogs, together, around my neighborhood at a leisurely stroll. I used to powerwalk to try to keep them moving and would try to put in 2 miles a day at minimum to tire them out! My dogs no longer growl or try to bite me, the Terrier mix used to think she was in charge and have a lot of anxiety. I realized how much I had modified to not upset her, seems very silly now, after all its my house, not hers. We are on a continued journey to a happy, well balanced pack. Whether you are having a behavioral issue or are just starting out looking for training, this approach will work for you and I'd highly recommend Nate. Because he addresses your entire pack, in your own home, its not just obedience training...its dog psychology. The lessons you will learn from Nate will apply for the rest of your life to every dog you get. Thank you Nate for saving our pack!
Elisa is an amazing and caring dog trainer. She has been a dog obedience trainer for many years. She helped me with my two dogs. They are more obedient and walk better on the leash. I would highly recommend her for your next dog trainer! You won't be disappointed!
Highly recommend Kim. She knows what she is doing and how to help you learn to train your dog. She's calm, soft spoken but firm with the dogs. We brought a Aussie puppy into the house with 2 adult Aussies. One of the adults wouldn't accept the puppy, having to be restrained. Within one week they were buddies and playmates. We then focused on basic obedience-sit, stay, down, come, leave it, etc. The dogs all responded to her approach quickly as did my wife and I. We will continue to work with her on heel & socialization. Her cost is very reasonable as is her offer of availability without further cost long term. Meet her, discuss her approach, you'll be quite pleased with the process and results.
Anita is wonderful with my pets. In addition to caring for them she also tries to work with them on obedience. She is timely and kind.
Beth does go above and beyond. She is caring and gives helpful tips on training my dog. When I leave I feel confident that my dog will be well taken care of.
We have four dogs. They're all different breeds, ages, and temperaments, and all obedience school drop-outs. We were struggling with aggression and territorial issues, and going crazy with their incessant barking. I was a little skeptical that another attempt at obedience training would be successful, but decided to try a private lesson with Andrew ( knowing I was not committed to continue if I wasn't happy). I was immediately impressed by Andrew's professionalism, knowledge and commitment to restoring a peaceful and respectful relationship with our dogs. With his guidance, the dogs are much more pleasant to have around and we are finally able to take them out in public without fear of them barking and lunging at other dogs. Andrew has shown us, in just five sessions, how to show our dogs love and attention the right way so they know what appropriate behavior is expected in return. Our bond with the dogs has grown stronger through training, and my family and I couldn't be happier with the results Andrew helped us achieve.
We are so pleased with Spot On Obedience Training. During our first session we were given tips that have already been implemented and made a huge difference in our interaction with and our dogs' behavior.
I'm a first time dog owner and really had no idea what I was doing. We found Brandy on Thumbtack site and we decided to give it a shot. Max was already 7 months old so we had no idea what she would know so the idea of obedience training sounded wonderful. Brandy definitely taught the basics as well as the other things that we wanted with our dog. Brandy also talked through issues we've had, given great advice and tips and Working with Max on them has definitely made a huge difference. Max has learnt some amazing behaviors. He can sit, come, sleep and walk loosely on a leash. Our bond with our puppy is incredible and we owe a lot to Brandy for helping me overcome my fear of dogs. I recommend her for owners with dogs of any age. Brandy came to our house and totally understood my dog's dilemmas. She taught positive training techniques that actually worked! She helped us prevent Max from resource guarding and regain order in the house.
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
Julie cared for our lab while we were visiting Phoenix from out of state, and wanted to attend some spring training baseball games. We were very pleased with the individual attention and care our Jackie received, and will definitely use Grand Paws again if we are in the Phoenix area and have need of a sitter. Outstanding value and service from Julie.
Rebecca is so nice and so kind. She is exactly what I was looking for when training my Yorkie. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a good trainer. She was on time and very professional.
Dianne was great! She was personable and flexible working with my schedule. My dog made great strides with her, and we are well on our way to getting him registered as a service dog! If I wasn't moving, I'd be continuing my training and training my future dogs with Dianne. I 100% recommend her services.
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.
I went to take a tour of the school prior to having my training and I was very happy with how the staff treated me. Very friendly and helpful. Answered all my questions and was completely honest. And I think hats very important when it comes to working with animals. The facility was organized and clean. Which is awesome for me since I will also be boarding my pups there in the near future! I can't wait to start my training!! Thank you!
Eileen and Ben were fabulous! They worked with us on vocal commands and how to respond to our dogs when other dogs approach. They brought their 2 pits within them to help with the training. Plus our neighbors pup (in training) was also there. We thank them and will be calling them again for more help.
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.
