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.
Karen is very knowledgeable and very passionate about what she does. I have done some research on dog training, and I very much agree with her methodology of relating to the dogs on a pack level. Karen did a fantastic job of conveying this information to us and really breaking out what key actions would show the dogs that we are the pack leader. I know that we have to right tools now to help make our puppers less stressed and lead happy and healthy lives.
DeeCee is awesome!! She truly is a dog lover and committed to her work. I needed help training my rescue dog to become a service dog and she did a wonderful job teaching us all the tips and tricks. She's very passionate about her work, which translates into great results when training your dog. She's very flexible and willing to help in any way she can. I highly recommend her. Thanks DeeCee!
first visit for dog training. already see a difference.Duane is amazing.
The Weatherwax family dog training method has been renowned for decades for their work training Lassie and many other animals in film and TV. Their methods use only positive reinforcement and set a high standard for results.
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.
Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.
Due to an injury I am unable to walk my dog. After speaking with Ali on the phone, I knew found the right person. Her love for dogs is obvious, and my dog loves her too. Ali reinforces the training I have already done with my dog and challenges her with new experiences on their walk. I would highly recommend Ali for any pet care needs, and will continue to use her in the future even when I'm better.
Petra is great and very patient with our dog Tobi that doesn’t get along with our cat but already after 3 lessons is improving and also learning obedience commands!
America's Best Dog Trainers has helped me train 3 Dobermans. Each dog had its own personality and Daryl and his crew were wonderful in getting each of my dogs in line. It was important to me to be a responsible dog owner and have total control of my dogs in public and at home. I love training my dogs with this group...everyone is really focused on working the dogs and there is great support and camaraderie.
Jo took care of our two Boston Terriers while we were away for four days. We have one senior dog in need of medication, one spastic five year old with endless energy, and we could not have been happier with Jo's care for them. She is not only professional and trustworthy, she is caring and has a natural bond with dogs. We didn't worry about them for a second while we were away because she sent us updates, pictures and funny little captions describing the dogs and what they were doing. I looked forward to hearing from Jo everyday. When we returned home, she had left the place completely spotless- she even cleaned off our porch and watered our plants. The dogs were happy to see us for about a minute and then went back to bed. They had a wonderful time. And, our neighbors loved her too! We are so satisfied and happy to have found Jo for our dogs. Now we can finally plan our honeymoon we put off because we didn't want to leave our old man Oscar alone.
We loved Sophia! She is very personable and we knew Hank was in great hands while he was boarded and trained. We especially found the follow-up lessons to be beneficial in helping us put his new skills to use and practice commands. We are sad that Sophia is moving, but thankful for all the help she has provided us and our dog Hank!
We trust Kenny implicitly. He is so great with dogs and so proactive. He saw that her dog needed a bath and just jumped in and took care of him. I would recommend him to anyone. He's really the best.
It's amazing how fast my dogs behaviour changed due to K9 Vacay! Hiring her is a must if your dog is a complete bratt! I literally saw change the first time she met my dog. My dog just just listened to her and behaved soo much better. She taught me how I should treat my dog and how to react in different situations. Amazing experience! I would definitely recommend K9 Vacay to anyone with a fur baby. If she helped my Siberian Husky, she can help any dog!
Incredible service! Brad always make customers and their dog's feel important. He's very helpful and knows what he's doing. I feel confident knowing I can leave my dog with him and that my dog's needs will get met and she will come back to me happy.
I have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.
Marissa did amazing work with my Dog and I definitely will be bringing Jetter around frequently. She wasnt even mad when I requested more time. She's a sweet person to talk to. Thank you Marissa
Her training was so helpful. I recommend her from my experience. My dog Craig , (Manchester terrier, male) had a trained by Natalie when he was 4 years old. Because he has a "hyper" personality, he needed a little discipline. I surprised how he changed after basic training. After Natalie gave him a basic behavior modification, his behavior has so much better than before. Craig became more calm, less barking at home, be able to walk with owner's pace when he walk. He also learned " Stay". Now he can sit and wait for his meal even for a 1minute ! He has been patient after trained with Natalie. She is trustworthy as well. I worried about relationship between dog and trainer at first, yet she was able to make good relationship. My dog trust her, and enjoyed training with her. Natalie gave us a great experience and knowledge.
