Very caring about my dog. She called me to say because of the hot weather that we were going to have on the appointment day she rearranged her schedule so we could groom the dog early in the morning before the before It got really hot. I thought that was awesome so she gets a five star in my book . She's a very good groomer very good to the dog . Thank you
remarkable change in dog after just a few leasons. Good communication with Don
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!
we had a problem dog, 100 pounds and very aggressive. Kelly was positive about getting him in to shape to be a good dog.... Was good working with her
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.
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,
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.
Renata exudes goodness and was thorough in her inquiries about my dog's needs. I definitely hope to hire her again as needed for dog walks.
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!!
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.
She was very imformative and extremely helpful!!! I was about to have to get rid of my dog and she helped me to work with my dog so that we could coexist in harmony. I'm very thankful for her advice!!!
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 desperately needed a dog trainer to come to my house. Darcy is reliable, she knows her business, she is kind and sweet with the dogs, she trains me effectively and reasonably priced.
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.
MR. GILLIAM TOOK CARE OF OUR DOGS ON MANY OCCASSIONS. IT IS OBVIOUS HE LOVES AND CARES FOR ANIMALS. HE'S RELIABLE, DEPENDABLE AND A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. WHEN HE WATCHES OVER MY CANINE BABIES, I KNOW THEY'RE IN GOOD HANDS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. SINCERELY, KAREN.
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!
