In our search for training for our 4 dogs we found Didi. Little did we know Didi is just what we were looking for! We did dot realize the difference between obedience training and a behavior training. She has taught us how to teach our dog proper behavior. Didi gives us Lessons that are easy to understand and complete with our dogs. I highly recommend California Canine!
Gary is doing an absolutely amazing job with my Doberman Magnum! couldn't have asked for better help! we currently did basic training with him (loose leash walking, leave it, release) and just showing us as the owner how we should be the leader in our "pack" and how magnum should look for us for commands. I will definitely continue intermediate/advance training and further more training with Gary! Thank you Gary! -April & Magnum
Kelly is knowledgeable and willing to help with dogs specific training issues.
I can highly recommend Wagging Tails Training. Shauna Fackler is very professional, clearly explaining how and why the training methods she utilizes will have positive results. After only two private in home sessions I have seen remarkable improvement in behavior and attitude of my 4 year old mixed breed dog. I could not be happier with the training experience Shauna is providing.
Stella not only watched my puppy but trained him this past week! She has saved my life with the potty training and it only took her a few days!!! She is very knowledgeable when it comes to puppies. Everything went smoothly! I was so happy to get updates and pictures of him everyday. I'll be using her again for sure.
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.
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
We have used Shainah multiple times while away and each time we are certain that our babies well taken care of with her as our dog-sitter. When you first meet Shainah she seems very quite... Which actually works out pretty well since she uses her "dog whispering skills" to calm our two rambunctious dogs into their proper places using the commands they have been trained with. We have had to use other dog sitters in the past whom we were not so pleased with... Fortunately with Shainah, along with our dogs being happy, we could also be sure that our alarm system was properly armed/disarmed and that we could return to a house that was not filthy mess. Peace of mind comes with Shainah as our dog sitter and I am sure you will feel the same! :)
Good, clear instruction; Dog and handler learned a lot. My dog and I really liked the gentle approach. we will try for the Canine Good Citizen certificate next.
They are dedicated and do their job right also very professional
We offer positive-reinforcement dog training and more. We also offer dog walking and pet sitting services too!
Just think 8 weeks from chaos to control! We offer dog obedience training, private and group classes, board and train, personal protection, problem solving (aggression issues), evaluations, police dogs, and Schutzhund, a German sport for dogs and their handlers.
We believe in taking a very gentle approach. A lot of positive reinforcement and love.
I have trained police K9 for 12 years. I have trained obedience on all types of dogs. I am very good with behavior issues also. I can also house-sit and pet sit for any amount of time.
We train dogs to be great family pets and protectors. We make people happy with our business. The thing that makes us great is the love and hard work we spend with the dogs.
At FCA, we believe every dog has the right to be trained on how to understand us and our silly ways. Building a relationship and communication is what we focus on.
I have been training dogs for 55 years. I have trained in most every disciplines. My training is based on not only the dog but also the owners. Your lifestyle and your dog must work together. The breed or mix of breeds also determine your dogs behavior. This combination of factors are essential to that well behaved dog. I don't believe in robot training for your dog and know that you train a Terrier, including pit bulls, different that you train a Poodle. I have had German Shepherds, Smooth Fox Terriers, Manchester Terriers, Whippet, Poodle, Afghan Hounds and Borzoi. I am now an American Kennel Club judge and also judge international shows.
Worried your furry friend is lonely or isn't getting enough exercise while you're at work? Need someone to pet sit while on vacation? Maybe your dog could use some training? Let me help. With The Canine Constitutional, I offer a wide variety of services, so get in contact with me, and we can work towards getting your dog to be happy and behaved.
I provide positive reinforcement for thumbs and paws. I take time to truly know your fur babies. I love them enough to socialize them and reward their good behaviors.
