Great Experience! Fast response and appointment. Our new nine month old shelter rescue refused to walk on a leash was even scared of the leash/collar. He would sit down and refuse to move. We travel a lot so leash training is imperative when staying in hotels! Bruce's training skills are exceptional, whether the training is for the dog or myself lol...it worked! He had my little puppy walking on a leash/wearing the collar within one session.. this is after one month of me trying to train him myself. Every day since he's been walking with a collar and a leash with no problems.... of course he still get scared here and there of other digs or people but is doing so well! We felt that Bruce's skillful and gentle approach really helped our little Kingston. Highly recommend. Thanks Bruce!

The man that I had a consultation with was very fast speaking and it was hard to understand everything that was being offered. I am not sure what the average price is for dog training but the prices seemed very high for so few visits. The advertised price was not what I was quoted online, it was substantially higher. The business wanted payment before receiving services which I thought was a little odd. Overall, I trust that the company will follow through with their promises and given their historical ratings, I decided to move forward with the process.

I was in search of a trainer for weeks; I didn't want group classes or to leave my dog somewhere for weeks for someone else to train. I really wanted someone to come to my home and train my husband and I on managing our Springer Spaniel puppy. We hit the jackpot when we were referred to Elisa Levenbaum, Fit Dog Training. Our first meeting she said "I'm here to help break his bad habits but not break his spirit" and she has done just that. She made the lessons personalized to what we wanted to work on. Elisa, has shown us how to work with Jax and break some habits and teach him commands that he easily obeys and enjoys. She is always available for questions and has some really great advise in all areas of dog ownership. We are 6 lessons into an 8 lesson package and Jax is doing fabulous. I would highly recommend Elisa to anyone with any aged dog. Our Jax loves her and so do we!

Renee's classes were so relaxed and fun. We got a new puppy and this was the first time I'd ever gone to dog training classes. Renee explains how a dog thinks and learns. Teaching them new things is easier than I though it would be. You do need time and patience. I wish I would have done it with our previous dogs. Thanks Renee!

Kim did an outstanding job with our Rottweiler puppy. She was very thorough and we started seeing the transformation with our dog by the 2nd lesson. Her follow up with us was excellent. I highly recommend Kim to anyone that needs dog training.

Anita is looking after our two dogs, walking them and doing training with our puppy. She is excellent! She gets on very well with the dogs (and our cats), goes above and beyond expectations and does extra little jobs we haven't even asked for! The animals love her and I don't know what we would do without her!

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.

Coty is an excellent trainer. He works magic with the dogs and is great at explaining his philosophy so you can continue to work with your dog effectively afterwards.

She took care of our two dogs while we had a last minute over 2 night trip. She did not stay at our house but made the drive twice daily to feed, walk, and play with them. Mary is very personable and I can tell she loves animals. Our dogs adored her and we will definitely be calling her in the future.

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.

I babysit children of all ages. I prefer to do so at the child's own home (children are more comfortable at their own homes). I also walk dogs of any breed or age.
