Raquel is absolutely amazing and words cannot adequately express how thrilled we are with her dog training services (actually she trains people to communicate with dogs). Our deaf and partially- sighted Great Dane had some behavior issues. It's hard to manage any 140 pound dog, much less one that is deaf and sight-impaired. Other trainers (not on Thumbtack) recommended expensive or lengthy training sessions, and even a 10 day boot camp. Raquel taught us how to understand and train our dog, and she did it in THREE HOURS! Amazing! She explained dog psychology and sociology, and taught us how to work with our big boy. She's also available for telephone follow-ups without charge. She clearly has a gift for dogs and loves what she does, and we're thrilled. If you're looking for a dog trainer, look no further - Raquel is truly wonderful.
We have our first puppy and we were struggling with many dog training issues (integration with two adult cats, potty training, biting, barking - the works!) and Karen was a great partner in helping us communicate better with our puppy and achieve great results. She is knowledgeable, passionate, and eager to make a difference.
DeeCee was great! She came to me in Malibu and worked with my puppy, Milo, for 90 minutes. She taught me how to be more firm but also incredibly loving with my puppy and how to prepare him for service dog training. She affirmed what I did right and corrected what I did wrong and did an altogether great job. Milo loved her too! Would recommend! Many thanks from us!
His great he have so much love and care for our dog since his training my dog I can sleep every night with no worries
Service Dog training. She really works to understand your needs and ability to make the training process go smoothly and get your dog to the highest ability possible.
Great working with Melissa. She is professional, kind and really helped me with training my dog. Thanks, Melissa.
I have a Papillion, a "soft dog" by training standards, that needs basic training - crate, clicker, leash, and basic command training. Tim has been very professional and responsive answering texts around the clock. Tim really understands the dog's thought process and help us better communicate with our dog.
Dan was helpful in training our Russell Terrier. He helped us with a discipline and praise approach in training our dog and we had good results. He provided us with information and tools that were very helpful. Mike F.
Angela came to the house to help us with our new puppy training! From the minute she came in, we knew she was the perfect trainer! Our dog responded so well to her. Every single time she comes to the house, she is punctual, professional, super friendly, and great at what she does! You will not be disappointed. She is a dog whisperer!
Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.
We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.
Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.
I absolutely love them! They made me feel like I was their only client even though I know that I wasn't. Mr. Philip connected with Karter, my dog, and did all he could to determine what would and wouldn't work for him as far as training. Karter would have his days when he didn't want to work but they never gave up on him and to this day Karter listens a lot better. They make sure to show you exactly what you need to do when you are practicing at home and you can just sense his love for dogs at every session. I would definitely recommend KO Dog Training to anyone looking for help with their dog(s).
Petra is great and very patient with our dog Tobi that doesn’t get along with our cat but already after 3 lessons is improving and also learning obedience commands!
Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca
America's Best Dog Trainers has helped me train 3 Dobermans. Each dog had its own personality and Daryl and his crew were wonderful in getting each of my dogs in line. It was important to me to be a responsible dog owner and have total control of my dogs in public and at home. I love training my dogs with this group...everyone is really focused on working the dogs and there is great support and camaraderie.
Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.
Jo took care of our two Boston Terriers while we were away for four days. We have one senior dog in need of medication, one spastic five year old with endless energy, and we could not have been happier with Jo's care for them. She is not only professional and trustworthy, she is caring and has a natural bond with dogs. We didn't worry about them for a second while we were away because she sent us updates, pictures and funny little captions describing the dogs and what they were doing. I looked forward to hearing from Jo everyday. When we returned home, she had left the place completely spotless- she even cleaned off our porch and watered our plants. The dogs were happy to see us for about a minute and then went back to bed. They had a wonderful time. And, our neighbors loved her too! We are so satisfied and happy to have found Jo for our dogs. Now we can finally plan our honeymoon we put off because we didn't want to leave our old man Oscar alone.
I met DANIELE LARGO outside my bank about a year and a half ago. She had such a beautiful, uplifting energy about her. I thought she was so beautiful and happy, and I just wanted to get to know her. She has such an inviting demeanor; we just started talking. Somehow we ended up talking about dogs. She is a remarkable person and dog whisperer extraordinaire. We have three cute little white rescue dogs and have been putting up with a lot of mischief from them. We'd call one and he/she would turn and walk the other way; plus, two different dogs each thought they were the alpha! We had toileting problems, too much unwanted barking, they were impossible to walk, you get the picture. We love them so much - Jack, J.J. and Kate. We're planning to move sometime soon, and for so long I'd been thinking about what to do about our doggie situation. I knew I needed to do something - SOON. Sweet Daniele had been keeping in touch with me during the gap since meeting, but momentarily I had forgotten about Danielle's special talent. Surprise, she called me the next day! Since we started working with Daniele things have really changed around here. We see the changes as each day goes by. Joe and I have worked with the dogs in all the ways she has taught us and it has really paid off. Yes, people need to get engaged in the learning process along with their pets. We have learned so much about understanding dog behavior, an essential part of having a great relationship with your precious baby. Danielle is so in-tune with our dogs and the ways we all relate together, that she understands what's going on with all of us. They each have different issues and they all love Daniele. They are anxious to please her, and now they focus with us much better also. Each one has really stepped up and they are falling into line as a cohesive family unit. We already have less barking, less toileting problems, less jealousy, and more obedience. Our home is happier and calmer thanks to this special lady. We highly recommend her for anyone having problems with their animals, or, if they just want to have a better trained dog, or other issues. Daniele has also helped our doggies, and Joe and I to better health with the Protandim she carries. What a difference! She has so many great ideas that have helped us accomplish our goals, for our doggies and ourselves. We couldn't be happier that we engaged Daniele to help us. Call Daniele, she's worth more than you can imagine...you won't be sorry! With Gratitude, Carole and Joe Wike
Great dog training - Marge is awesome with dogs and people! She comes to your home, always gives a reminder text and is always reliable. Love them!
LeNai is a professional through and through and knows dogs amazingly well and can handle every size of dog. Walking, training, playing - she is a pro! But what really makes the difference for me, is that she is treating your dog like it is her own. She gives my Sasha so much love and helps her overcome her separation anxiety. She gives updates every day, and I can 100% rely on her. When I go on my trips, I have 100% peace of mind leaving my dog with LeNai.
