I'm abosoulty happy with the way Don Kirkish works, he showed up to my house for an introductory session for only $50, showed up on time, was very friendly & easy going. He immediately receives my dog with open arms & instantly started working with him. To my surprise my dog Major caught on very quickly & right away listening pretty well! What i have been trying to teach Major in months, Don came & taught him in minutes! Major was very happy with Dons services as well! If my dog is happy. Im estatic! My favorite thing about Dons work is that he uses pure love & commands to train. Without treats! That way dog always responds. It was truely a blessing to find him.. My family & Major look forward to continue working with him! If your looking for a trainer for your dog & come across Don. Don't hesitate, give him a call!! You will NOT be sorry.. I MEAN IT!!
He came to my house and started training my dog right away. He knows his stuff and the price was very fair. Highly recommend him.
Choosing the right dog trainer for my dog Happy seemed like a daunting task when I first got started. I had three different trainers come for a consultation with my boy before I called Tierney with Unleash Your Beast. I feel lucky to have found her. She made me feel at ease. Her calm nature and knowledge of dog behavior was very impressive to me. And Happy seemed to really like having her work with him some. She helped me to better understand my boys not so amazing behavior and made sure I understood how she could help us overcome our problem. Tierney's confidence in the situation put my mind to rest and I am super excited to get started with Unleash Your Beast's board and train program as I feel it is what is best for my boy.
I've been working with Faith since getting my puppy this year and it has been excellent! Training is always a work in progress of course but my dog has benefited so much from training with her! We've been able to work on basic obedience, move onto advanced skills and work on issues specific to my dog. I frequently get compliments about how well behaved my dog is. I would highly recommend Faith to anyonewho is in need of a dog trainer. She is wonderful and a wealth of knowledge & expertise!
I had my dog trained by OLK9 one year ago and this was the best decision ever for our pup and our family. Oakley attended the two week board and train along with the therapy dog training. He is able to listen with distractions, load in the car, walk, run, and hike off leash. Seriously we get complements everyday either the store or just out on a hike or run on how well he behaves. I'm so thankful for OLK9 training our dog!
Susan Newell is an absolutely fabulous dog trainer. I have a 9 year old rescue Pointer mix, with serious issues including, barrier aggression, biting, and environmental sensitivity. Susan worked with the dog and helped me to understand him Today he is loving, has confidence and is very a stand up and well adjusted guy. We would not have made it without Susan. She is professional, timely and truly cares about her clients (people and dogs). I highly recommend her. Susan Gray, Davis,
WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.
I had the pleasure of working with Jamie and she really made a difference with my stubborn Lhasa Apso. My dog had the tendency to get overly excited when outside on his lead around other dogs. This made it extremely hard to take him places because it gave people the wrong impression. After only a couple of sessions with Jamie, he started to calm down and listen more attentively to me. Now Peace walks beautifully on his lead and is much more approachable!!! I would highly recommend Jamie to all of my friends!!!
Best dog trainer she is compassionate & loving Alycia has taught us how to keep the training going well we are on our own. Our dog has learned so much!! Alycia teaches boundaries ;this has saved our dog numerous times, he knows not to run out in the street we can have the door open & he will not go passed the door unless given the command he also does this while were walking he will not cross the street unless the command is given ! I would totally recommend thinking dogs !
We were very pleased with Jenni. She was very informative and gave us plenty of effective advise. She took our unruly puppy for training and 5 weeks later returned to us a very pleasant obedient and enjoyable dog. It is obvious that her main concern is the care of our pets. We are forever grateful. Thank you Jenni.
Pam continues to amaze me with how well she trains both people and dogs alike. I have had the opportunity to learn from Pam as one of her students and I continue to see the benefits our shelter dogs have as a direct result of Pam's teaching techniques. I have found Pam's teaching style to be friendly, patient and professional, leaving both students and dogs on a positive note and a sense of accomplishment. If you're looking for a dog trainer with a lot of experience training multiple students and dogs each day with positive results, I highly recommend, Pam Francis-Tuss.
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.
We needed someone to stay with our "special needs" dog, as we had to be out of town for a week and couldn't take her. Brittany was absolutely wonderful with her, patient and accepting. We tried leaving her once before and it was a disaster as our dog is afraid of everyone and everything, but Brittany was able to reach her and bond in a short time. I will recommend her to anyone I know who needs a trainer or pet sitter!!!
Miranda's work ethic is like no other. Her passion for training stands out in her professionalism. Miranda is very reliable and consistently arrives as scheduled. Miranda's strong points make her the best in her field of work. She is very observant and knowledgeable when it comes to training the dog owner. Miranda is very compassionate and patient when working with young dogs and new dog owners. Miranda possesses a special skill with training dogs with different needs. She has extensive experience that makes her the best at training. What sets her apart from other programs is her love for what she does. Miranda is highly recommended for all levels of training and any type of breed. Miranda's ability to connect the handler with their dog is phenomenal. She has a true gift to help both develop to their full potential.
Our dog,Bambi, stays at Tug Dogs for a month at a time when we go out of town, a few times a year. Sometimes she is also there for a shorter stay. She is treated like a member of the family, with kindness, love and respect, The care, training and socialization she receives there is far superior to any she has had from other trainers. We have total confidence that she is in the best place she could possibly be! The care Bambi gets at Tug Dogs is way above the highest rating on your scale! We recommend Tug Dog without reservation!!!
My husband and I have worked with Joyce for almost a year now. Words cannot describe our fondness of her. She has and always will be more than a dog trainer. In addition to her exceptional dog training services, Joyce provided us with tips on proper dog nutrition. The first day we met Joyce, she asked to take a look at our dog's food. My husband and I were so impressed as she skimmed through the list of ingredients on the dog food bag, nodding her head yes and no. She is passionate about the well being of all dogs and is always researching and learning new things to pass on to her clients. She is peaceful (very soft spoken), reliable, and of course - SHE KNOWS DOGS!!! Not only has Joyce improved the quality of our dog's already wonderful life, but she has also left a mark on our hearts that will never be forgotten. Anyone would be lucky to have Joyce in their dog's life at some capacity, rather it be as a trainer, walker, consultant or plain old friend. Thank you Joyce! Ashly Patton Ashly Patton
I have been training with Bob for the past 5 years, doing general obedience and protection work with my 2 German Shepherds. Bob's classes are organized, challenging and stimulating for both handler and dogs. His teachings are practical and are used in everyday situations. He is very capable in dealing with a wide range of behavioural issues as well as all aspects of general training. When obedience training is done off lead it is done in very close proximity of other dogs and incorporates a combination of agility/obstacles. We are also taught how to handle the following situations: How to control your dog when being approached by another dog or a group of dog(s), encountering cyclist and joggers etc. (objects and people in motion) How to control your dog in a conflict situation with another dog Bob is quick to assess and take control to avoid problematic situations even before it happens and when something does happen he very quickly bring it under control, calmly. Bob enthusiasm and energetic manner truly reflect his passion for helping people to improve their control over their dogs. His classes are fun and informative, and I can wholeheartedly recommend his classes to anyone.
I used Docile Dogs last year when I was living in Elk Grove for five days of petsitting my two Springer Spaniels. Steve, the trainer/sitter did a fantastic job and even taught my dogs how to walk properly on a leash w/o pulling! I was very impressed with the notes he left me on my dogs' progress in their training session. I highly recommend Docile Dogs..his professionalism & knowledge of dog training was top notch!
