I was having a lot of problems with my 4 years old Beagle; in fact, I had completely lost control of him. He was barking all the time, experiencing separation anxiety, was jumping aggressively on other dogs and not listening to what ever I was telling him at all. Walks were a nightmares! When I contacted Beth, I was not asking for big improvements in my dog's behavior; any little adjustment would be seen as major. But Beth taught me how to take back control of my dog, how to make him listen to me and how to react to his dog aggression problem. Within 3 sessions, my Beagle is an another dog! The barking had reduced significantly; dog aggression is almost resolved (I would say it had reduced by 90%) and he's not anymore ignoring me when I ask him something. I warmly recommend working with Beth at The Top Dog Trainer if you have any issues with your dog, she's very professional, doesn't judge you on how you have raised your dog in the past and has a great availability.
John is one of the best dog trainers that I've met. I have a three year old recently adopted American Eskimo with issues such as leash pulling, nipping people who doesn't give him attention, and general insecurity issues. I have seen other dog trainers trying to get help, but without result. John took the time to get to know my dog and evaluate him based on what he saw and previous conversations with me. He helped me understand my dog and what I need to do to help him. Apparently, I have a dog that thinks he's an alpha and he taught me how to address this. I need more classes to address my dogs leash pulling and more, and I am glad that John didn't try to address all issues in one session because I don't think that would have been very helpful in the long run. Training a dog is not done in an hour, it takes more time than that. I highly recommend John.
Dog training. Working on minimizing dog aggression in my bulldog.
Denise was able to show me how to get my Old English Sheepdog to respond to basic commands, walk in a calm manner, and behave while in the house. Her private training of Sally and myself led to these things being accomplished in rapid manner. Sally turned from being an excitable, out-of- control dog into a peaceful, obedient pet. I highly recommend Denise as being an expert human and dog trainer.
My experience with Ralf was great. He is a person who truly understands dogs and was extremely helpful in the one problem I was having with my dog. I would recommend him to any person who is having any type of problem with their dog. Especially aggression he is not afraid to help with this issue and a good trainer to deal with aggression is hard to find.
Our little guy is full of anxiety and fear, Paula put him at ease and in the first visit he began to break down that fear. She makes herself easily accessable to us to help in a moments notice and is giving us hope that our little guy can live a peaceful life with the tools she is teaching us. If you have a dog that has aggression I would absolutely recommend her to you. She is kind, consistent, patient and respects your animal.
Daniel is great, he is easy to work with and is very knowledgeable. His techniques are perfect for how I like to interact and work with my dog. I have had dogs all my life, but found myself requiring a little bit of help with my new rescue dog Dutchess who has displayed some aggression with unfamiliar dogs when walking. We first worked on the walk to fine tune it and then tackled introduction to dogs. I am happy to report she is doing great. She is still learning her manners and we are working to get her to be a lady, but i love the progress that I have seen so far. Daniel encourages questions and genuinely cares about what he does.
Steve is an incredible, elite master trainer. He holds the key to unlocking all of your dogs' best attributes. He has done wonders for my dogs, and I have witnessed him doing even more for others. There's nothing that this man can't fix about your dog. But, you must be willing to put in the time and do what it takes to maintain. I have two mixed breeds (brother and sister) that have severe separation anxiety, when they weren't near each other. They were completely co dependent on each other, fearful and extremely sensitive to everything around them. They would whine and bark when separated. Steve had them for less than two weeks, and now they have no problem, at all being separated. He taught me how to build their confidence, and help them succeed. Which has made training them in obedience much easier. They now have the will to work, and the desire to learn more. As do I. He has inspired me so much that it has now become my passion, and I am now his apprentice. What I love most about the way that he trains, is that he is very gentle and patient with the dogs. He is by far more concerned with the dogs' well-being than anything else. He can be pretty tough on the owners, but once you come to realize why, you really can't be mad at him. The issues that your dog has, are typically there because of you. Your dog is a mirror of yourself. Once you've accepted that, you can then both change together, building the bond between you and your dog even stronger. But, you must be part of the change in order for it to work. Wendy is my senior master trainer, and I have learned so much already from both of them. They have taught me beginner and advanced obedience, behavior work, tracking, scent detection, how to show in AKC competitions, how to train movie dogs, and much more. Through the skills that I have acquired from them, I am now teaching my own classes and training dogs daily, using the same incredible methods that these amazing dog trainers have taught me. I highly recommend Steve and Wendy, and all of their trainers to anyone who truly cares for their dog.
Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.
I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.
Arturo is such an amazing trainer!!! He has helped and coached us on how to control our dogs aggression. He not only trained our dog but taught us how to properly train her. He’s helped restore confidence both in us and our dog to allow her to be her loving social self again! We could not have done it without Arturos dedication and patience!
Ron is the best dog trainer ever! His love for dogs shows in his gentle, calm, and effective training techniques. He trains dog owners just as much as their dogs, and he has successful results. Under Ron's tutelage, my shelter pit bull blossomed from a fearful, anxiety-filled dog into a dog with confidence and self-esteem. She has really come a long way, in large part thanks to Ron and his teachings. Ron is also the least expensive dog trainer I have encountered. His rates are reasonable, for such high-quality training.
Dave is a dedicated, caring and knowledgeable dog trainer. We will use him!
We are about to come to the end of the first month with Maureen working with my dogs and pups. I couldn’t be happier with her! She is good with each dog and works methodically to move them toward the goals I identified. She is always very professional and kind with the dogs. Kathy Bailey Sunny Daze Labradors
I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.
Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!
The crew at Off Leash k9 Training Palm Springs surpasses my expectations. I really didn’t know if there was any hope for me or my puppy, but the training my dog received, and the education I was given was second to none. I can literally take my dog anywhere now and she doesn’t even need a leash. It’s literally a different dog experience when you can let them roam off Leash with the confidence that they’ll come when called, and Off Leash of Palm Springs can deliver that life changing experience in just 14 days! Thank you so much to Morgan and her staff.
Kim is an OUTSTANDING trainer....extremely patient and helpful. Don't hesitate to engage her to help with whatever dog-related training issue you might have. She has been our Agility trainer for months, and our dog has progressed well beyond my expectations.
The trainers at CST really know their stuff! Helped me see the mistakes I was making and suddenly the DOG's behavior was loads better. Positive, effective affordable. 5-stars!
