Pete has been helping us with our very energetic and curious black lab for about the past ten months. He has come to our house for trainings and we have been able to join him and our pup on training walks. Pete helps train our pup and also takes him on dog walks 3x a week. Pete's walks are no ordinary walk in the park! Our pup could be on an outing up in the trails or could have spent the afternoon swimming!! Our pup loves Pete and is always excited to head off on an adventure with him. We have also been able to board our pup with Pete which was a great experience as we knew our pup would be loved and cared for exceptionally well. We are fortunate to have found a skilled and caring dog trainer!

Courtney is one heck of an amazing trainer! She is not only wonderful with dogs, but she also has an incredible talent for working with people, too. She will help you to understand your dog's behaviors and she emphasizes fixing problematic behaviors instead of just managing them. I can't recommend her enough for anything from puppy training to advanced obedience and fear-based behaviors.

Five stars out of five!!! Tammy is a great trainer. In only three sessions, my new little rescue dog is doing all the training basics: sit, stay, heel, come, and down. We are working on others. Plus, Tammy is personable, patient, and so dog knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!

Logan was great to work with. Our family enjoyed learning how to train our new puppy. He was able to teach us how to walk our puppy, we’ve been trying for weeks now. Looking forward to see results. Logan was great with our puppy and the kids, very professional and comes with lots of experience!

Les is wonderful. He had new training skills for us to work on each time. He is very friendly and structures the training on what you decide is important for your dog. He would make sure I was walking or training my pup correctly before each session was over. If didn't quite train our dog enough by our next session, Les never made me feel guilty:) I recommend Executive Canine Services for a positive training experience!

My Newfypoo pup Jelly Bean is a handful, especially considering I have never had a dog before. I was fortunate enough to stumble on John Vinton's site, after being dropouts from Sirius group puppy training. His technique is unique as he does not advocate stuffing the dog with never ending treats. Instead, consistent reinforcement of commands accompanied with appropriate overwhelming praise when deserved. We're only 3 lessons in. I am so proud of my Bean, especially when compared to other dogs we meet on our walks. We both still have a lot to learn and with the help of "A Better Dog Trainer" I know we'll be successful.

Susan is an expert. She very observant, respectful and sensitive . You can tell she loves her work and your pets. I have two very senior dogs who can be aggressive with an overly active puppy. She has taught each of them skills (us too!) and we are no longer afraid to have them engage. I have recommended her to my friends already. We all look forward to her visit.

Rusty has exceeded above and beyond my hopes for a trainer. After our first complimentary consultation for him to assess my pups behavior as well as for me to assess whether Rusty was the right trainer for us, I knew I had landed on one of the best. He possesses an incredible wealth of knowledge that he conveys efficiently and proficiently giving you the tools to truly carry over the work done in the sessions to every day life with your dog. He is professional, patient, and creative in his training, not to mention a true dog whisperer. While I originally sought Rusty's guidance for foundational obedience training and separation anxiety, it evolved to using him to assist in the journey of training my pup to be a therapy dog. Along the way, my dog suffered an traumatic experience while under the care of a sitter and adopted fear behaviors that had not existed before. I called Rusty right away for advice and help. We adjusted our sessions to address the immediate concerns so they would not become permanent. He was a complete blessing and my pup is successfully on the mend. Rusty is so well-versed in many areas of dog-training (he's your one-stop shop!) Whether you need short-term assistance, long-term, or varying areas of concerns, look no further. You don't need to take my word for it, just take advantage of the complimentary consultation and see for yourself. Absolutely no regrets here.

I learned everything I know about dog training from Jorge. He's extremely gifted, enormously friendly, and very knowledgeable. A true paragon in his field. My relationship with my dog is so much more rewarding thanks to him. I learned from Jorge that dog training is less about drills and commands and more about building a bridge of communication between my dog and myself. My dog knows how I think and what I expect of him and I know how he thinks and learns. Armed with that knowledge anything is possible between us! Thank you, Jorge, for all you do! Whether you're looking for a competitive obedience coach, a trainer for your family pet, an expert groomer, or just an amazing friend, you'll find that Jorge has it all!

Emily is fantastic! She began working with our 6 month old weim only 4 weeks ago, and he is already a different dog. He has learned to be better on the leash, developing better response to commands such as sit and stay. Emily truly listens to the needs of the family and is very responsive to the individual dog needs. She is dependable, responsible and when you meet her, you can just feel her passion and dedication to puppy training. She sent us regular daily updates about our puppy's progress, including video clips. When we first started, our puppy was shy of other dogs, but after only 2 weeks, he was braver and more assertive in the dog park with other pets. Emily is a pleasure to work with and we have just signed up for another 4 weeks of training to continue building on the progress our doggies has made. She is down to earth and caring. She is also not afraid to say when something isn't working, which we truly appreciated. Our dog didn't like the halti leash, so after a couple of weeks of training, Emily came up with a different leash option and was very honest about the reasons for the change. It's refreshing to work with such a professional. Thank you, Emily, for all your dedication and hard work!

We brought home two Cairn Terrier pups. It had been 12 years since we had trained a puppy, and we knew we needed a refresher course. We went to a local groomer / boarding facility for help, and it was like a time share pitch. I won’t go in to details. So we found Maj on Thumbtack. I told her right away that we humans wanted to be trained; we didn’t want somebody to offer us ready-for-use puppies, pre-trained for our convenience. We needed to be refreshed on how to live with our new pups, and how to make them happy to live with us. Well. Maj is perfect. She loves dogs and she knows what she’s doing. She has worked with us to make the whole family one. Our biggest problem has been the puppies piddling on the floor, and she had many suggestions to overcome this problem. She also consulted with her mentors to help us (our pups were a hard case). We have found a solution, and we’ve made great progress. We continue to work with Maj to train our pups to listen to us and be the great family members we want them to be. We continue to work with Maj to be the best puppy owners we can be. We’re completely satisfied.

Emily is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable dog trainers I have ever met. I contracted her when I adopted a rescue with severe separation anxiety and who never had any formal training. Within 6 weeks my pup mastered basic commands, and we were well on our way to overcoming his separation anxiety. I would recommend Emily without hesitation to anyone looking for expert help!

Stella not only watched my puppy but trained him this past week! She has saved my life with the potty training and it only took her a few days!!! She is very knowledgeable when it comes to puppies. Everything went smoothly! I was so happy to get updates and pictures of him everyday. I'll be using her again for sure.

We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!

Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.

I can't express how happy I am to have Elizabeth taking care of my Golden Retriever puppy, Archer, during the day when I'm at work. She is a true professional with years of experience with animals, particularly dogs. I feel like she is an extension of my family. She not only engages with Archer for play and exercise, but she also works on his commands and training. I also know she is good in a crisis - Archer decided to gobble up a rat during a walk and she handled the situation beautifully. I strongly recommend Elizabeth the Dog Nanny!

Chris worked our Lab-mix, Zoe, to stop her habit of jumping on people. Chris is professional, observant, and patient. And, most importantly her training is based on kindness. She was able to assess both Zoe's and our particular needs and worked accordingly to help us. Throughout our session Chris took her time not only teaching Zoe, but also teaching us. And, Chris has given us further support through a follow-up e-mail checking on Zoe's progress. With Chris's help we are well on our way to success!

Anne is the absolute best at pet care and sitting. She immediately bonded with my extremely reserved nature dog and won her heart over. She does a great job of communicating and keeping me posted, which is very appreciated. Mature, responsible and puts pets first. I could not ask for a better dog walker and sitter. My expectations are very high and Anne continues to exceed them. I'm looking forward to entrusting her with our new puppy!
