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.
Maggie is my fourth dog. I have had trainers with each of the dogs. Never have I had a more competent, compassionate and professional trainer as Karen. She taught Maggie to walk loose leash and not enter a room before more or my husband. I used to have to carry her everywhere. She's only 9 pounds but it got old really fast. I also had Karen board/train her for two days. She came back a different dog. When Karen came today for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog. When Karen came for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog, she got so excited when seeing Karen. Karen knows how to be firm yet kind with dogs. Dogs know it. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly than Karen. She is the best of the best. Barry K. Sherman Oaks
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
Good communication. Our aggressive stray dog we took in had no hope, until we found Kym...1st day he was sitting on command, walking on the lead with the proper equipment. She appeared very knowledgeable and was caring & proved to be a success on the first time in our training for our new dog Balto. I highly recommend her.
I am currently working on service dog training with Denise. She is AMAZING!! My SD I'm training is also the first dog I've ever owned. That being said, Denise is really patient with me as I learn how to be a good dog owner as well as train my dog. She is very go with the flow with the training, as far as if I have anything come up in between classes, we address the problem and work through it right away. I'm so happy she's a part of our lives! Best most professional service I've recieved.
Timothy was such a saving grace for my pup and I. The private in-home training was an excellent option being that my pup is a teacup weighing only 4 pounds. Now I can boast that thanks to Timothy "Sir Gramps" is a well behaved mini-schnauzer and I am very proud!!! Timothy has made Sir Gramps a truly mannerable pup that everyone falls in love with. I would highly recommend the services of Wagging Pack.
I own a year and a half year old, 70 lb Stafforshire terrier. I found Daniel's training business online and he was very quick to respond. I was having anxiety issues with Rocky. He was also not around a lot of other dogs so he was not taught proper socializing, thus causing him anxiety and insecurities. Daniel was able to provide the assurance that Rocky would respond well to his method of training. We have been working together only a few months on a weekly to bi weekly basis and Rocky has super manners. He is meeting dogs with respect and confidence. He is now progressing his obedience and starting Psyciatric Service dog training. I'm very happy with Daniel's service.
They did an excellent job with our pitbull, Fiona! She was only 5 months old and very shy and timid....they worked with her and worked with her and she is now very obedient and has gained confidence. We are also getting a service dog from them for our autistic son. Two thumbs up!!
She is very caring. She loves working with your pets. Our dogs responded to her great training
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.
Very good dog trainer. Have been working with him for about 6 months now. We are training my 2 yrs old Shepherd for my service dog for ptsd. I can now leave rocky my dogs site for 5 minutes where he can't see me and he stays.what i.pressed me is Phillip has a service dog for ptsd he trained him self. I have recommended him to several people and they all say the same thing he is a great trainer and he knows what he is doing. I highly recommend hi.
Love Ur K9 is the best decision I ever made for my Mini Australian Shepherd, Camo. I cannot say enough how good they have been to me, and my dog. I am forever grateful for everything they have done for us. Here's the full story: I heard about Kevin through a friend who had a great experience after her dog was trained by Kevin. I was looking for a dog trainer who could not only help with obedience training my three month old puppy, but also work on some dominance behavior issues. I had read so many books on raising a puppy, and also grew up in a family with many dogs so I thought I knew what I was doing. Our first meeting with Kevin was in our home, where he met Camo, and got a better understanding of our home setup and routines. It is also where Camo was comfortable and displaying some early signs of dominant behavior. Kevin immediately picked up on this and made some changes to the way in which we interact with Camo. We started puppy behavior and obedience training that same week. Kevin also trained us as handlers, so that we understood the training and could repeat it at home, that way Camo would not be able to default back to bad behaviour. When Camo was 9 months old, we heard that we had to move to Australia for my husband's work. There was no way that I could make the move without Camo. Australia is extremely strict with importing pets, and theres a six month intensive preparation of vet checks, and massive costs involved before dogs are allowed to enter the country. We had to leave two months after we heard the news so we had to make a plan for Camo in the meant time. Kevin took Camo into his home for four months, looking after him, doing service dog training with him, and helping with many arrangements to get Camo reunited with us. Camo joined us in Australia in June and I am elated to have my best friend back by my side once again. He is still full of personality, but by far the most obedient, trained and socialised dog in Melbourne!!! THANK YOU Love Ur K9, from the bottom of our hearts!!!
Daryl is wonderful! He is super responsive and available. Answered all my questions promptly and sent me videos of my dog during the time he was being boarded and trained. Daryl is extremely professional and considers us part of his family. The dogs he works with are unbelievably well trained. It seems like he does a lot of personal protection dog training, although we took my Corgi puppy to him for obedience training. My puppy is very “willful” and needed an extra week of training and Daryl was incredibly accommodating for us. I couldn’t believe he would be willing to go the extra mile to make sure we and our dog are satisfied. Thanks Daryl!
I have been using Unleashed LA for 12 years and can't say enough good things about them. Kimberly is wonderful. She not only takes excellent care of my cat, but when I was in hospital, she took care of me -- what other sitter would bring you underwear?! I love Kimberly and Unleashed LA. They are the absolute best!
I am so happy to have found Daniele and Beijo's Corner. I had just got out of a relationship and I felt like I wanted to adopt a pet to keep my mind off things. Daniele helped me to adopt my tuxedo cat Midnight. Daniele said that cats fit my personality, and all this time I thought I was a dog person! Midnight though very loving was also very timid. He would cry when I left the house for work and it would disturb the neighbors. He would also run and hide under the bed when I had company over. I went to the Beijo's Corner website and I saw the packages that Daniele offered for the pet behavioral service. Daniele came to my rescue! She has been working with Midnight on the anxiety and socialization packages. I also had homework of my own to do. This was an amazing learning experience. I now know that it eases Midnights anxiety if I play soft jazz before I leave to work. And that is just one of the many tips and tricks I have learned during this journey. I do not know what I would have done with out the help of Daniele and Beijo's Corner. And I am exciting for what's to come!
I cannot say enough good things about Off Leash K9 Los Angeles. From the start they were friendly, courteous, kind and prompt. Off Leash isn't the cheapest, but we think there is great value in the type of service they provided us. Mike outlined exactly what would happen before we signed up, and that reassured us. Then Mike and his team delivered on exactly what they said they would. Our dog left us for two weeks knowing how to sit and shake. He came back AMAZING!!! Our boy walks off leash, comes when called, and is so much happier after the training. Off Leash K9 Los Angeles gave us the dog that we always envisioned. We cannot thank Mike and his team enough!!
Aisha came by to evaluate my dog and says he is fine as is. I liked her honesty and the way she interacted with the dogs. Id I ever need a trainer I know who to call.
