About

My husband and I needed some help taming our wild beast, and by wild beast I mean our 7 pound Chiweenie. We had had it up to our eyeballs with his barking and leash aggression. My husband and I had different schools of thought about dog training, so whomever we chose was going to have to train us all, not a easy fete. From the first session, we knew that Todd would be up to the challenge. He actually took the time to listen to our concerns about our little boy, and was most sensitive to our thoughts and feelings about dog training. He was very clear from the beginning about what he felt needed to be done and what part we had to play in it. He was also very clear from the beginning that the training would not be sustainable if we did not avidly participate with our "homework" between sessions. He has helped us turn 7 pounds of spaz into a sweet and respectful member of the family. We can now take him out on walks without worrying about leash aggression and have even started taking him hiking!! This very morning he actually let a small child pet him(he was not at all a fan of children). We thoroughly enjoy his company now and are excited to continue to watch him blossom under Todd's direction. Todd is kind, compassionate, professional, and demonstrates a genuine love of animals and a commitment to successful training. He will be our "family" trainer from here on out!! Cannot recommend him enough!

About

Gene is polite and well versed in the area of dog training. So far we are in the puppy class and hope to progress to Protection training. He cares for his own dogs and the dogs of others. Couldnt recommend a better dog trainer in the area. So far all his predictions were correct about our Belgian Malinois. Droopy ears no longer droop. Hire him. You wont regret it.

About

Owned and operated by Tarheel Canine Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Ray and Bridget Murphy, Koru K9's mission is to teach dog owners how to understand, communicate and work with their dogs to resolve training challenges and serious behavior problems. We work with all breeds...any dog, any problem. Initial Consultation & Training Session This is the first step to training a better-behaved dog. We will meet with you and your dog, conduct a detailed interview about your dog's history and behavior, clarify your training goals and assess your dog's behavior. You can expect to see results after this first session. Based on the results of this meeting, your dog will either move on to our Obedience Series or Behavior Modification Series. Behavior Modification Sessions After the Initial Consultation, we will work with you and your dog privately in 60-90 minute training sessions. We believe that no dog is beyond rehabilitation. These private dog training sessions address all forms of unwanted or unsafe behavior including leash reactivity, aggression, food or resource Guarding, anxiety and fear issues. Obedience Training Series Do you dream of a dog that will come when called (reliably), sit on command or stay patiently at your feet while you are at brunch? Then our Obedience Series is for you. After the Initial Consultation, we will work with you and your dog privately in 60-90 minute training sessions.

About

Do you want a well-behaved dog? I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer with over 15 years of experience. I am also a Registered Veterinary Technician with a special interest in Behavior. I offer Group Obedience Training, Private In-Home lessons, as well as Behavior Modification. I also have experience working with Service dogs. I use Positive Reinforcement methods for training, as well as Counter Conditioning and Desensitization methods for Behavior Modification. I do not use choke, prong/pinch, or shock collars. I believe in good leadership for your dog; your dog needs a good leader, not a dominate master. Teach your dog- instead of making him or her comply. Cooperation- not capitulation makes for a much better relationship, and makes your dog a better behaved family member. I believe in continuing education, so I am constantly attending symposiums, lectures, and workshops to keep updating my skills and knowledge, including an Internship at U.C. Davis Behavior Center. I also believe that as your pet's guardian, you too should educate yourself. You can have a positive relationship with your dog; let me help. My group classes are currently at $95 for a 7-week class, and my in-home private lessons and behavior modification start at $250 and up.

About

There is no question that every dog is different. This is why I don't apply one dog training philosophy to every dog and owner I teach. When I train, I take many philosophies into consideration, while always staying within the positive training realm, and then tailor the training session to what works best for you and your dog. Tailored Dog Training is owned and operated by Ally Lantis. Located in Concord, California, she holds dog training classes at Newhall Park in Concord, as well as conducting private sessions at people's homes. See the training page for more information on pricing and training methods used.

About

I am an experienced pet sitter and dog walker/trainer offering affordable services around Danville, Walnut Creek and San Ramon. I would love to walk your dog or play with your cat, while you're working during the day or out of town. I offer daily walks, feeding, changing water bowls or litter boxes and affection, and I am very experienced at giving medications. I also teach your dog some really cool tricks, potty training if you need help with that, or also better leash manners, all while we have fun! Previous clientele have been very satisfied with my services. I can also manage special needs of animals (geriatric, ill or aggressive), as I was a veterinary assistant at a high-volume veterinary hospital for over 3 years. My other qualifications include time at The Humane Society, A Dog's Life doggie daycare, and I am a college graduate. I am also capable of training dogs out of common household issues if you (the owner) are willing to put in some effort with me! We offer reasonable rates. References are available upon request. My wonderful yelp is on my website. Call or email me for more information. Ashley Fraser
