I'm abosoulty happy with the way Don Kirkish works, he showed up to my house for an introductory session for only $50, showed up on time, was very friendly & easy going. He immediately receives my dog with open arms & instantly started working with him. To my surprise my dog Major caught on very quickly & right away listening pretty well! What i have been trying to teach Major in months, Don came & taught him in minutes! Major was very happy with Dons services as well! If my dog is happy. Im estatic! My favorite thing about Dons work is that he uses pure love & commands to train. Without treats! That way dog always responds. It was truely a blessing to find him.. My family & Major look forward to continue working with him! If your looking for a trainer for your dog & come across Don. Don't hesitate, give him a call!! You will NOT be sorry.. I MEAN IT!!
I received many responses from my inquiry for a dog trainer on Thumbtack. Kevin was the first to actually call me. We chatted about my needs and concerns and immediately felt I was making the right decision in selecting him. I received so many great tips and my little Lola and I have a better relationship because of it. I now know how to handle certain situations and it's not as big of a deal as I thought it would be. Since my dog is 14 weeks old, I decided to have Kevin come back once a week for 4 weeks so he could assess our progress and help us through the next stage. I would highly recommend Kevin for your dog training needs. Not only is he helping me with training, he's also assessed her food intake, food quality and gave me some additional tips on my crate training efforts.
Great experience. Very excited about getting my dog trained.
I've been working with Faith since getting my puppy this year and it has been excellent! Training is always a work in progress of course but my dog has benefited so much from training with her! We've been able to work on basic obedience, move onto advanced skills and work on issues specific to my dog. I frequently get compliments about how well behaved my dog is. I would highly recommend Faith to anyonewho is in need of a dog trainer. She is wonderful and a wealth of knowledge & expertise!
We enrolled our two full grown German Shepherds (Brewski,4 yrs and Axel 2.5 years) into Offleash K9Training's two week Board and Train program and to say we are impressed is an understatement! Our boys are completely transformed and are now gentlemen! It's so nice to be able to walk and heel them with no pulling, no issues. They are all around more pleasant to be around and we couldn't be happier with our investment! This training is worth every penny! The hours and work that Gunner and all the other trainers put into these dogs is amazing and the results are incredible!
Susan Newell is an absolutely fabulous dog trainer. I have a 9 year old rescue Pointer mix, with serious issues including, barrier aggression, biting, and environmental sensitivity. Susan worked with the dog and helped me to understand him Today he is loving, has confidence and is very a stand up and well adjusted guy. We would not have made it without Susan. She is professional, timely and truly cares about her clients (people and dogs). I highly recommend her. Susan Gray, Davis,
WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.
Best dog trainer she is compassionate & loving Alycia has taught us how to keep the training going well we are on our own. Our dog has learned so much!! Alycia teaches boundaries ;this has saved our dog numerous times, he knows not to run out in the street we can have the door open & he will not go passed the door unless given the command he also does this while were walking he will not cross the street unless the command is given ! I would totally recommend thinking dogs !
We were very pleased with Jenni. She was very informative and gave us plenty of effective advise. She took our unruly puppy for training and 5 weeks later returned to us a very pleasant obedient and enjoyable dog. It is obvious that her main concern is the care of our pets. We are forever grateful. Thank you Jenni.
Pam is an excellent trainer of dogs as well as trainer of people of own dogs. She is patient, understanding, and has real life experience with hard to work with dogs. She trained me at our local city shelter on how to work with "shelter" dogs and I will be forever grateful for her knowledge and teaching great teaching style. Pam's down to earth approach was logical to me and will stick me as I work with the dogs benefit from her teachings.
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!
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.
Sheila is awesome! She has worked and connected well with my rescue puppy Marley. We worked on obedience with Marley and Sheila was very knowledgeable and gave us many tools to work with our pup. She truly loves and cares for animals and that's very important to have in a dog trainer. She has also promoted my dog bandana business and I thought that was so nice of her. She truly is a honest and amazing dog trainer and I recommend to anyone! Thanks Sheila!!
I have a French Bulldog, I have learned how to train my dog with out forcing him and he did not respond to being forced . Thank you Connie for teaching me a better way, My dog likes to learn now and we have a good time. I have been able to teach him many tricks and also obedience skills . This class has made it possible for me to start Therapy dog testing . Gizmo and I are Grateful
Miranda has really been incredible to work with. She is a top notch trainer. We have been working with an anxious aggressive dog. He is making great progress. Best part Miranda works to teach us what is going on with the dog, which helps us learn how to train our dog. I highly recommend Miranda and Healing Paws.
My husband and I have worked with Joyce for almost a year now. Words cannot describe our fondness of her. She has and always will be more than a dog trainer. In addition to her exceptional dog training services, Joyce provided us with tips on proper dog nutrition. The first day we met Joyce, she asked to take a look at our dog's food. My husband and I were so impressed as she skimmed through the list of ingredients on the dog food bag, nodding her head yes and no. She is passionate about the well being of all dogs and is always researching and learning new things to pass on to her clients. She is peaceful (very soft spoken), reliable, and of course - SHE KNOWS DOGS!!! Not only has Joyce improved the quality of our dog's already wonderful life, but she has also left a mark on our hearts that will never be forgotten. Anyone would be lucky to have Joyce in their dog's life at some capacity, rather it be as a trainer, walker, consultant or plain old friend. Thank you Joyce! Ashly Patton Ashly Patton
Erin, watched my puppy for 6 hrs. And said my puppy is smart and needs no further training by them and for me to be consistent with Buster taking him out every morning and after sleep and play to go potty and it's been a week and he is doing very well....he is smart. Thanks to Erin.
I used Docile Dogs last year when I was living in Elk Grove for five days of petsitting my two Springer Spaniels. Steve, the trainer/sitter did a fantastic job and even taught my dogs how to walk properly on a leash w/o pulling! I was very impressed with the notes he left me on my dogs' progress in their training session. I highly recommend Docile Dogs..his professionalism & knowledge of dog training was top notch!
