Although Milo has got the cutest most innocent face this 7 year old has faced issues with socialization (entirely mine and my family's fault for trying it to late). Before Raquel milo had no clue who the boss was, because it was all cuddles and love 24/7. With an absolutely huge THANKS to Raquel, milo has been so obedient and such a great little soldier walking by my side and listening to my commands. Raquel not only helped my little boy, but she also helped me in understanding that I need to stop being so insecure and unsure about what i do because it reflects onto Milo. Since Raquel i've tried to be more confident and a better pack leader so my guy can live his best life. He has been so obedient in these past 3 days with a few hiccups here and there but always getting right back on track. Thanks to Raquel in a few months my little guy will be whipped into shape! She also gave me amazing tips for his allergies. She's not your regular dog trainer, she absolutely cares about each and every animal she encounters. Let Raquel do what she's done for all of us, for you. You won't regret it.

I see an improvement in my dog after one visit! Walking my dog was excruciating before but Karen taught me how to walk her and I already see that walking my dog does not have to be a horrible experience! Also learning that I am the pack leader and my dog's sitting and staying is better too.

Awesome trainer. My german shepherd puppy was a bit of a handful and we really needed some support in teaching positive behaviors. Timothy was the perfect trainer. Always on-time, professional, courteous and attentive. He went above and beyond. He helped our pup learn sit, stay, lay down, wait, drop it, touch, to walk on a loose leash, and become less distracted by the outside like UPS men, cats, people, etc. He even led us through potty training our puppy successful from inside to out. Assisted us with crate training, correct harness/leashes and proper chew toys. Even helped us with some tricks like roll over, play dead, jump, and more. Invaluable experience. We have a much more respectful pup!

Me and my babies have done 3 sessions with Kat and they have improved so much. Originally I only wanted training for my baby Boomer, but she was also very helpful with my other dog, Tubby as well. She worked and played with both of them, she taught Boomer tricks such as sit, up, and down, and helped me work on Boomer's behavior towards other dogs. He isn't the smartest dog to work with and I feel like he has ADD most of the time, but Kat was very patient and worked around his difficulties. My biggest problem with Boomer is that he would always whine and bark when he saw other dogs. She told me it was because he was anxious and excited to see them, and not because he has aggression towards them. Kat even went on walks with me and the babies to give me tips on what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to improve Boomer's behaviors. We walked up and down my whole street numerous times just so I could practice walking Boomer correctly, and learn how to handle his excessive barking/whining towards other dogs.

Sit Stay OK K9 Training takes a very unique approach with the way we train, and it is very simple yet very effective: we train you first! All dogs are hardwired to follow direction even the most independent of breeds but it is up to us the owners, to be sending them the right message. This is where our dedication, experience and strong understanding of dog behavior comes into play teaching you simple, positive and most importantly effective tools to train your dog. With a positive and dedicated approach anything is possible in the dog world. Believe us when we say your dog is ready and willing to learn. There is only one thing he's waiting on, and that's you! Why we are different: We have found here at Sit Stay OK K9 Training that sometimes, even the thought of trying to address, let alone eliminate, your dog's undesired behavior can be enough to make one exhausted. Often, people have no clue what to expect from in-home training lessons, or can even be hesitant due to prior experiences with past trainers. At Sit Stay OK K9 Training, we know just what you are feeling and take a very personal approach with every dog and owner we meet. At no point will you ever feel like you're in this on your own. Our number one priority is to teach you the tools that you will need to be successful from day one, and how this peaceful method of training can easily work for you and your dog. Our initial evaluation gives me a chance to see you interact with your dog in an environment you both are familiar with, as well as get an idea of your daily routine with your dog. Next, I will interview both you and your dog. 9 times out of 10 your dog will give me a better idea of what is going on and what we can do to quickly and effectively address the problem. You just might be amazed at how simple some problems can be to eliminate. Often, it is just a matter of mixed messages between the dog and their human. Our following lessons will give you the tools, knowledge and the belief that this can be done, and it can even be fun! Our training program allows you to learn how to understand your dog and how to get your dog to understand you. Allowing you to work together, instead of against each other. You will learn about how simple exercises can be added to your dog's routine to increase your chances of success and how big of a role these small tasks can play in the rehabilitation of you dog. After each lesson, you should feel a stronger and stronger sense of direction and leadership. Of course, there will be dedication and work involved on your part but more than anything we want this to be a fun educational experience for you and your dog. Training is incredibly rewarding because it really truly is up to us as owners to determine how successful our training program will be with these amazingly intelligent animals. The sky truly is the limit. Like we always say here at Sit Stay OK-K9 Training, "a dog's mind is a terrible thing to waste!" Your dog is ready and willing to learn. There is only one thing he's waiting on, and that's you!

After working with 2 other trainers, a friend reccommended Jeff Todd. The other trainers were completely ineffective so we prayed that Jeff would help with our rescue dog and her incessant barking at strangers, family and guests. After a home consultation we all agreed that his "Boot Camp" approach is what our dog needed. After 4 weeks of boot camp our dog was 95% better. We highly reccommend Jeff and his team for dog training and consultation.

About

My company is called Efil's god, which just spells dog's life in reverse, because dogs are just mirror images of us, the people in their world. I focus on the following: * canine behavioral training and behavior modification * animal communication * canine massage and energy healing and * understanding our own behaviors by learning from our companion animals Efil's god Dog Training is a spiritual, holistic approach to training and rehabilitating dogs and is based on no-touch energy training, "speak wolf!" mentality, and proven government service dog training techniques. Efil's god Dog Training is not just command training; it is behavioral training for the life you share with your dog, in true partnership, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, no matter what, and no matter where. If your pack family is experiencing any kinds of undesirable behavior from a canine member of your pack, know that any dog, of any breed, at any age and with any temperament can be rehabilitated and trained through proper leadership, repetition, predictability, movement, patience and love. These are the fundamentals of true pack leadership and real balance. I help animals and the people in their world uncover their true power by teaching them how to communicate a universal love that I call, "speak wolf!", which exists inside of us all. Lori Spagna

We accept cash payment, checks, credit cards. Our office is open from Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Travel provider will travel up to 40 miles at no additional cost. Location is developed in Australia, our dog-friendly training techniques leverage the same communications methods, body language and voice control that dogs follow as part of their instinctual pack mentality. All training takes place in the home. Our all-natural methods are effective with any dog, any age, including puppies. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession? Mostly I'm not really training their dog, rather I'm teaching my client how to respond to their dog in a way that makes sense to them, in a dog way sort of. Once my client learns how to and how not to respond, the whole dynamic changes for the better and quickly! What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you? Look for the type of dog training first and foremost. Some people search for a dog trainer by price first, then type, then time, etc. When they compare services, they end up comparing apples and oranges. For instance, a clicker treat-based dog trainer usually charges by the visit. Bark Busters charges a flat fee, which guarantees as many visits as needed to meet the clients goals. It's a huge difference. What are your most common types of jobs? Most of my clients have dogs that are driving them crazy. But not all my clients have this problem. Common dog behavior issues I work with everyday are: - Barking - Jumping up - Peeing/pooping in the house - Front door manners - Pulling on the leash - Doesn't come sit or stay - Too excited - Chewing furniture - Digging up the backyard I can usually solve these issues in a very short time with my clients. Funny how most people wonder why they waited so long to call me.

About

Training is in the everyday living! As a dog trainer and behaviorist, each dog is an individual. I work with each dog to find what will motivate your dog to learn. I use basic obedience and behavior modification to work with dog-to-dog aggression, fear, human aggression, housebreaking, manners, chewing, mouthing, jumping, etc. My methods are positive, and do not entail anything that will hurt the dog just to make them do what we want. I base my training on mutual respect, and not fear.
