Pete is an outstanding dog trainer. We only needed one lesson and he showed me what I need to do to get my dog to walk without pulling, stay in her bed for an extended period of time and to calm down when people come over. He showed me and left it up to me to practice the exercises with her. She has really improved and now the walks are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend Pete and his services. He even read my 2 year old grandaughter a book when we were done!
Courtney is an excellent dog trainer. Our puppy and we have learned so much from her - she focuses on great modeling and positive reinforcement and her enthusiasm and professionalism are ever present. I have recommended Courtney to others and will continue to do so. She is excellent.
Logan is very professional you can tell he loves animals his work quality is awesome my dog is now a happier dog and I must admit so am . his teaching techniques are so easy to follow he truly is worth it I am extremely happy with him Thank you Jane S
Les is fantastic! He is truly dedicated and passionate about the services he provides. Not only is he a great trainer and dog walker companion, his pet delivery service is perfect for anyone in need of a drop off or pick up that just doesn't work in your schedule. I highly recommend giving him a shot, you will NOT be disappointed!
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.
We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.
Debbie DeMello has helped me a lot in dealing with behavioral issues I was having with my dog. She is caring, direct, and knows what makes dogs tick! She helped me with practical suggestions, training tips, and follow-up. She also teaches small classes which I am continuing to attend with my dog. Great trainer!
Rusty at Pawgress dog training has been an absolutely amazing trainer for our reactive cattle dog/ border collie mix. He has really given us so much information and shined light on some new techniques and strategies! We have found it so useful to have our dog practice with his dogs and we love the feedback and guidance! His PDFs have helped us to be able to practice and apply at home in between trainings as well! We can’t thank Rusty enough for the work this far! We look forward to training every week as we see our dog (and us!) make strides!
Jackie is a very talented dog trainer. She is at the same time sweet and strong. She teaches at the same time the dogs and the owners. We highly recommend her.
Didi is a very knowledgeable dog trainer. She is patient, focused and explains in detail the methods she uses and the reasons therefore. She also provides written instructions to assist your recall of the training methods she uses. My dog is responding very favorably.
Holly is an excellent dog trainer! She uses solid training methods to produce reliable results, no matter the behavior, breed, temperament, history, etc. Her training approach moves beyond correcting specific issues; instead she addresses the overall mindset of the dog to produce a calm, balanced and HAPPY dog, which then eliminates any and all behavior problems. That's what I call effective dog training! Beyond her skill with dogs, she is equally skilled with teaching people how to employ the training techniques. She is a joy to work with--she has a positive and supportive attitude, clear communication, and a genuine desire to help folks foster a desirable relationship with their dog(s). I have had the pleasure to work with Holly over the last several weeks to address my dog's leash reactivity and fear based dog aggression. In ONE session my dog was able to walk past several packs of dogs barking and lunging behind fences with no issue whatsoever. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes (and boy did my dog look proud of herself!)! We look forward to continuing our training with Holly so my dog can earn off leash privileges at dog beaches, camping, etc. If you are seeking a dog trainer, save yourself the trouble of looking elsewhere and start with Holly! You and your dog(s) will be glad you did.
great dog trainer!
Emily was amazing with Winston! I couldn't have asked for a better trainer for my puppy! In the 4 weeks of training he became a much more obedient and well mannered little pup. I am more than confident to recommend Emily and her training camp to whom ever needs an efficient and responsible trainer.
Cannot find a more knowledgeable or caring dog trainer than Tricia. I took my Scottie and Min Pin to classes with Tricia for years until I moved out of the area. When I went out of town I would leave my dogs with Tricia to care for them, they loved her and her dog Zeus to death! The move made me appreciate her even more. Everyone comments on how well behaved my dogs are and I always attribute it to the best dog trainer in the country.
I have worked with Mary for a week now and she has been incredible. We have a new puppy and she has really gone above and beyond to help us with him, visiting up to 3 times per day. She is very prompt, receptive to suggestions and requests, provides consistent updates, helps with training, and -- most importantly -- clearly cares about our pup! We were a little nervous to leave him alone while at work and it gives us great peace of mind to know he is in Mary's capable hands. We plan on working with Mary indefinitely to help us with our new family member. I recommend her enthusiastically for any and all of your canine walking/training/visiting needs!
Phoebe B trained our German Shepard dog and of all the trainers we have used she made the most progress in helping the dog to become more comfortable with different people and situations. She also took care of both our dogs and the dogs are very excited when they see Phoebe. Phoebe is very personable, open, and patient. We liked her a lot and had she not moved away from our area, we would continue to have her train and care for our dogs. She is also a very sincere and nice person! Would highly recommend her.
Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.
Simply put Koru K9 is awesome. I've made 3 behavior change sessions in the course of 1.5 months and puppy is way way better. She used to be a very nervous dog, afraid of everything and anything. Now she is calm, relaxed, walk beautifully by our side, doesn't bark to other dogs walking around. She still has lots to learn and training is an ongoing process, Koru K9 will teach you how to make your dog a better dog, they are great!
We have a black lab who we got when he was 7 weeks old. When we got him, we were told that he had a mellow personality and that he would be calm. This was not true. Our puppy was a handful, high energy, and out of control. We tried classes, and a trainer, and things did not improve. We found Juniper, and she turned the situation around. She is excellent with dogs and puppies. She was able to provide the right training for our dog, which included positive reinforcement, and proper exercise and diet. Juniper also gave us a lot of pointers about how to interact with our dog. One of our challenges was that our dog had no attention span. Juniper taught us how to do mental training exercises with our dog that enabled him to increase his attention span. And he really enjoyed these too. Theo is still a high energy dog, but he is also obedient and fun to be around. Juniper found a dog park nearby, and we take him every week for a vigorous game of fetch, which he loves. We now live in the house in a more harmonious way and we are very grateful. It took a lot of human and dog social skills to transform our complicated situation into something that works. Juniper has what it takes to understand both your dog and you.
