Pete is an outstanding dog trainer. We only needed one lesson and he showed me what I need to do to get my dog to walk without pulling, stay in her bed for an extended period of time and to calm down when people come over. He showed me and left it up to me to practice the exercises with her. She has really improved and now the walks are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend Pete and his services. He even read my 2 year old grandaughter a book when we were done!
I am so amazingly happy and excited about working with Courtney! Ocean has some leash/dog aggression issues. He is getting better each day with the tools she is giving us. Most importantly, her training is helping me to understand him better. I think it is strengthening our bond, which I didn't expect. I also really appreciate that she is a true pit bull lover, advocate, and ally. I can't sing her praises enough. Thank you so much Courtney! I've been telling all of my dog-parent friends about you!
Logan is very professional you can tell he loves animals his work quality is awesome my dog is now a happier dog and I must admit so am . his teaching techniques are so easy to follow he truly is worth it I am extremely happy with him Thank you Jane S
Les is fantastic! He is truly dedicated and passionate about the services he provides. Not only is he a great trainer and dog walker companion, his pet delivery service is perfect for anyone in need of a drop off or pick up that just doesn't work in your schedule. I highly recommend giving him a shot, you will NOT be disappointed!
John is very knowledgeable about the psychology of dogs and he came to our house to show us how to deal with the specific problems we were having at home. Taking our dog out to another trainer was not addressing our specific behavior problems at home. John is very nice and caring of our dog and we have been very happy with his dog training. He has given us the tools that we need to work on our dogs behavior and let our dog be an active member of our family.
George is a professional dog trainer and I am very impressed with his knowledge and dog handling skills. No doubt in my mind we could achieve whatever objectives we set for my dog. I am very excited at the opportunity to work with him and my dog is too!
Debbie DeMello has helped me a lot in dealing with behavioral issues I was having with my dog. She is caring, direct, and knows what makes dogs tick! She helped me with practical suggestions, training tips, and follow-up. She also teaches small classes which I am continuing to attend with my dog. Great trainer!
Rusty at Pawgress dog training has been an absolutely amazing trainer for our reactive cattle dog/ border collie mix. He has really given us so much information and shined light on some new techniques and strategies! We have found it so useful to have our dog practice with his dogs and we love the feedback and guidance! His PDFs have helped us to be able to practice and apply at home in between trainings as well! We can’t thank Rusty enough for the work this far! We look forward to training every week as we see our dog (and us!) make strides!
Jackie is a very talented dog trainer. She is at the same time sweet and strong. She teaches at the same time the dogs and the owners. We highly recommend her.
Holly is an excellent dog trainer! She uses solid training methods to produce reliable results, no matter the behavior, breed, temperament, history, etc. Her training approach moves beyond correcting specific issues; instead she addresses the overall mindset of the dog to produce a calm, balanced and HAPPY dog, which then eliminates any and all behavior problems. That's what I call effective dog training! Beyond her skill with dogs, she is equally skilled with teaching people how to employ the training techniques. She is a joy to work with--she has a positive and supportive attitude, clear communication, and a genuine desire to help folks foster a desirable relationship with their dog(s). I have had the pleasure to work with Holly over the last several weeks to address my dog's leash reactivity and fear based dog aggression. In ONE session my dog was able to walk past several packs of dogs barking and lunging behind fences with no issue whatsoever. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes (and boy did my dog look proud of herself!)! We look forward to continuing our training with Holly so my dog can earn off leash privileges at dog beaches, camping, etc. If you are seeking a dog trainer, save yourself the trouble of looking elsewhere and start with Holly! You and your dog(s) will be glad you did.
Maj is kind, a good listener, and a deeply empathetic human being. She also happens to use those skills as an excellent dog and dog-human trainer:) She’s prompt, responsive and pretty darn reasonably priced. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to solve a dog issue or just deepen their existing relationship with their animals. Really, there should be more stars to give her:)))))
Emily was amazing with Winston! I couldn't have asked for a better trainer for my puppy! In the 4 weeks of training he became a much more obedient and well mannered little pup. I am more than confident to recommend Emily and her training camp to whom ever needs an efficient and responsible trainer.
Shauna is an amazing talented dog trainer. She worked her magical and brought our very timid dog out of her she'll. We definitely plan to take more classes with her and would recommend her to anyone.
Mary is our full time dog walker, she comes daily to our home during the week and also does overnight stays when we go away. Our dog Beau simply loves Mary (and we do too, of course). Beau literally jumps with excitement every time Mary comes over and practically licks her to death. Mary is dependable, caring beyond belief and knows all about Beau and his personality. She keeps us well informed about anything she notices with him gives us great advice if we are dealing with any "doggie issues". We are lucky beyond measure to have her in our lives and highly recommend her for regular dog walking or pet sitting.
Simply put Koru K9 is awesome. I've made 3 behavior change sessions in the course of 1.5 months and puppy is way way better. She used to be a very nervous dog, afraid of everything and anything. Now she is calm, relaxed, walk beautifully by our side, doesn't bark to other dogs walking around. She still has lots to learn and training is an ongoing process, Koru K9 will teach you how to make your dog a better dog, they are great!
Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.
Sue has been working with me and my two min pins, Coco and Tootsie on behavior modification issues. I was at the point of contacting the breeder to give one of them back - basically at the end of my rope. I'd worked with other dog. trainers, but Sue explained and showed how to manage and modify behavior that was easy to comprehend and made sense. I am not exaggerating when I say she has literally changed my life and helped me rethink how to interact with my girls. I am very grateful.
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.
She did a great job helping me get the apartment organized and manage excess clutter. As an added bonus - the dog and cat just adores her!
