So far I've been very impressed with Dog Squad U. I really liked the YouTube videos of dog training in action. I was able to get a great feel for how the the trainer works with the dogs and their owners! I had a great idea of what to expect and what questions to ask. I've had an in-home initial evaluation and I was very pleased and impressed with the trainer and training during that time. I'm looking forward to working with Joe and getting help training my puppy.

Joe is amazing. He is a very skilled trainer and made sure we knew how to properly give our dog the commands and continue the training in his absence. We were ready to rehome our dog thinking he was bad and untrainable. We aren't even done with the training and already have a completely different pet. Highly recommend Dog Squad U!

I just had MY first lesson with Joe. Yes, I said I HAD. I am learning, so I can teach my dog. The lesson was great for both of us. Joe is patient and explains exactly what we need to do before we attempt it. Lacee Jae picked up the commands of COME and OFF quickly and I look forward to the continued training.

I started training dogs back in 1973. I learned all of the old ways and over the years I tried a lot of different methods and some worked. Many didn't. I always felt like something was missing. I liked the idea of positive reinforcement to train a dog, but sometimes it was hard to figure out how to do it. Then I met Jamie Robinson. The first time I saw Jamie's 'games' in action with dogs I had that 'AHA' moment and knew that she was onto something big. I signed up! Now I am in the midst of learning how to train my Service Dog prospect puppy. Watching this pup learn to think is amazing. The dog definitely learns faster and more thoroughly than with any of the old ways I used. Jamie's methods really work. Her games set the dog AND the handler up to win. I don't see how anyone could go wrong with this program. Simply excellent!!

Jamie has been great so far with myself and the training of my puppy. I believe that survey should have been done further along in the training.we have only had 2 weeks in class. But both of us really enjoy training with Jamie Robinson. Kim/mrley

After extended research we decided on using Gerard Raneri with Bark Busters Tucson Home Dog Training. He was very quick to call us back and seemed to be able to explain in detail how he could help us, as well as the options he offers. For example, they come to our home and our neighborhood train our dog (and us) They also do not use any choke, pinch or shock collars, no pain dog training. We have had dogs before but this dog was different for some reason we couldn't get a few of his bad behaviors turned around. He (Riley) is a 3 years old mixed breed about 60 lbs. very sweet and we just love this boy! The main issues we needed help with were his pulling on the leash, his jumped on everyone and barked at them. He also would not come when he was called! After our first lesson we saw an immediate improvement! The method and techniques Gerard taught us were easy and our dog caught on quicker then we did! Riley was sitting, staying, coming, and walking to heal all on the first lesson. Of course we had to keep working with him to break his bad habits as well as ours. One of the biggest things I learned was how I was reinforcing the behavior I didn't want. All this time I was sending the wrong message to my dog and Gerard saw that very quickly and showed us how to turn it around. I can say first hand that Gerard was always on time for our lessons and went above our expectation with training. Riley has become a well behaved dog and we have become much better at being his pack leader. Thanks for the Help Gerard,

I have use Gerard in training my two dogs. Both of my dog were very hyper as puppies. Gerard instructed me how to become the pack leader. He was meet me at parks, schools, home and work to train my dogs in all environments. Gerard takes his time in training the dogs and me, the alpha. I know I can call Gerard if I'm having any problems and he inform me how to handle it. My one dog is 5 years old chow/heeler mix, my other dog is a 10 month old Rottweiler. I won't have any other trainer. Gerard, thank you for training my dog to be two wonder pets.

Gerard is very professional and informative. From his website to his handouts I could tell he takes dog training serious. I would recommend to anyone that needed help with their dog(s). He is top rated on Google as well and found him on the first page there.

We did a board and train package with Manners and More and I could not be more pleased with the results. Our little dog Baxter was uncontrollable jumping on us all the time, he had no leash manners at all, would not come when called. We gave him to Nathen and were amazed with the results. Baxter now will stay in a designated space (willingly) when we put him there for as long as we need. He now sits for attention in front of us instead of jumping on us constantly. He has awesome leash manners and he comes to us when called. Baxter went from the worst dog in the house to best trained dog by far. He is a joy to have again. Granted, we had to learn how to command our own dog. We had to learn how to communicate with our dog (included) so the things he learned while away could be duplicated at home. The follow ups were great so that at first if he regressed we were able to address it and get him back on track. Great Trainer! Great Training!

Eddie helped me with my male bulldog who had a lot of aggression, dominance and biting issues. He worked diligently not only with my Meatball but also training me to control him. My dogs love being with him and I trust his methods.

I was at my wits end! Our 7 month old rescue shepherd mix was out of control. The non stop barking, jumping on us and guests, and pulling on leash was very frustrating. Joe and Marci with Bark Busters were extremely patient and always available to answer any questions we had along the way. I highly recommend them and already have!

Joe and Marci were very personable from the very first time we met. I was also impressed with how much they know about dogs! I learned a lot from them at each session and it was actually easy to use their instructions daily to improve our dogs behavior.

She knows her thing! She has long-term goals set up for me, and I am glad to have that arsenal. I would recommend her to anyone needing to do obedience especially. She did not address my specific issue in that I need something NOW as opposed to long-term, although I will implement the long-term goal once we get cooler weather, and when there will be a more likelihood of dogs in the dog park with which to use to help me.

About

I have a large, beautiful property in NW Tucson where I own three extremely well-behaved dogs, and I welcome other dogs to stay with us for a short while. During that visit, I touch up on the basics with your dog along with social skills, which my dogs are great at.

About

I am experienced in law enforcement, and my pick of a major in college was of course criminal justice. I love training large dogs who seem aggressive, because I know they can be made into militant partners and obedient friends. Training K-9 dogs taught me to be thankful for my fellow peacekeepers, human and K-9 alike. I am affordable, and I will even train your dog while improving stance mobility and muscle toning. Call or text me for affordable quotes all day!

About

I provide animal care, including pet sitting, dog walking, and basic training and behavior modification.

About

I'm currently a senior at the University of Arizona. I'm an out-of-state student from Seattle. I have been pet sitting now for five years and love the commitment. I don't have a business due to having another job as a wine salesman and being a full-time student, but I have a lot of passion for animals. Many clients are interested in my work for the main reason that I'm reasonably priced compared to professional businesses. What I believe makes my business great is the idea to keep each day active. My main goals while on the job include staying healthy (active, running, parks, walks, etc.), being responsible (keeping hydrated, food, etc.), and working hard for my clients as well as their pets.

About

Established in 2008, Desert Dogs has grown from a small, in-home training service to a storefront facility with three professional trainers and kennel staff. Though the company has grown, our main focus has always been on our customers and utilizing the most effective and innovative training techniques. While we continue to expand, we retain our commitment to the community by providing rehabilitation and a foster home for local rescues and their most behaviorally challenged dogs. We participate in many community events and provide a resource for owners to connect with other dog lovers and organizations. We believe that a true canine professional's education is never finished, and furthering our knowledge is imperative. We pride ourselves on becoming proficient in the most effective and progressive techniques of training available. Desert Dogs is licensed and insured for both you and your dog's safety and protection. Even though it is called dog training, it should be called people training for dogs. The most important part of training is how you handle and respond to your dog's behaviors. Dogs and humans don't naturally speak the same language. Training provides an opportunity to open a line of communication that will allow your relationship to become mutually beneficial. By making the training a "way of life", your dog will no longer question when to display appropriate behaviors. The more you practice and implement the training into your everyday life, the faster your dog will learn and the more reliable he will become. Your dog deserves your time and dedication to the training. The more devoted you become, the greater the reward will be.

About

Besides my absolute love of animals, I am a certified dog trainer which encompasses anything from socialization to obedience, and service dog training.
