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!
The puppy training is a work in progress. The trainer, Courtney, is absolutely spot on in regards to listening to the puppies and their chatty daddy, me. So far jumping to a minimum after only two lessons and having the puppies walking WITH me has excelled though it will take the full 4 hr package for that one. I highly recommend Courtney as she is tremendously well versed in doggy behaviors and how to correct/adjust them. Charles
Great!!! In-home training for my puppy.
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.
I loved that she was able to come out to our home. For a very fair price. Thank you for your time and expertise.
Kevin is very responsive, friendly, and most of all, great with my 1 year old recently rescued pup, who comes home from his walks tired and happy. He's also very helpful with tips on how to help your dog work on any issues.
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.
Kelly was very good with our puppy! She helped us learn/teach good manners to our pup.
Easy going and great interaction with dogs. Knows to well how close we can be with our dogs and shows training your dog should be a comfortable feeling. Friendly and helpful to understand how to better correct their dog. Would recommend!
Jackie is great. She is reliable and had resources for training puppies.
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!
We met with Kevin for an initial consultation for our 2 boxers. In the short time he spent with us, our dogs learned so very much. Kevin showed an instant connection with our boys and we are excited to start working with him. He was able to answer all our questions and provide honest answers.
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.
Great experience! She taught us so much in such a short amount of time! Thanks so much for the private lesson, I think it made a world of difference!! I would definitely recommend Janet to anyone who needs a great dog trainer!
I highly recommend Barkeley K-9 University. Pat keeps an open mind and always has an idea/solution for any issues. He has knowledge of numerous methods (not all dogs are the same!) and makes training pleasurable for both owner & dog. Always punctual & professional, he works well with people and teaches you how to work efficiently with your pets. Over the years, we have trained 3 dogs with Pat and are always pleased with the outcome. Group classes have been great as well. We receive many compliments on how well behaved our dogs are. Best of all, dogs love him!
