John is an amazing trainer. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for some obedience training for their pups. He is punctual, professional, and passionate about what he does.
I have just completed my personalized training course with Canine Companions as of May 31st and the entire experience was enlightening and delightful. My furry friend is a 3 year old male blue nose Pit Bull terrier and I needed a knowledgeable professional to teach me how to best train and care for my friend. Kym not only did that but so much more. I understand dog hierarchy and the leader/follower tendencies of the pack mentality so much more thoroughly now. She not only taught me what works with dogs and how to keep their respect and obedience but WHY it works as well. I didn't have to overcome any severe issues with my Pittie, as he has a great general disposition as it is. What we worked on was asserting my role as a leader to him and how to make my boy know that I was in charge and that he could trust in me and follow my direction all in a safe, positive, learning environment. You never have to lift a hand to your dog if you know how to properly address the issues you have with them! After three sessions with Kym I am now to able to walk him on the leash with him at my side and no longer pulling and dragging along to the next spot for him to sniff or mark, I AM IN CONTROL, and he happily rambles on along side me enjoying the walk and accepting my direction without challenging it. Among that huge step in my relationship with him we learned how to properly reinforce the basic commands with a dog that I feel personally are oft overlooked as to how critical they are to a dogs growth and the relationship you share with them. I know how to execute these commands in a way to will not confuse my pup or contradict other commands I have given thus confusing the poor guy. Kym not only helped me fix his bad habits, but my own bad habits as well. I thank her dearly for that. Kym was on time with our meetings, always had treats on hand to reinforce his training, and was always more than happy to teach helpful tips and advice on proper care and health topics concerning our four legged friends. I can proudly show off my friendly and obedient Pit Bull Terrier thanks to Kym and her vast amount of knowledge and care she has for these creatures. It was the very best time and money I have spent with my dog and I absolutely believe that EVERY dog owner should experience instruction such as hers, everyone would benefit from responsible owners and safe healthy and happy pets!
Service Dog training. She really works to understand your needs and ability to make the training process go smoothly and get your dog to the highest ability possible.
I own a year and a half year old, 70 lb Stafforshire terrier. I found Daniel's training business online and he was very quick to respond. I was having anxiety issues with Rocky. He was also not around a lot of other dogs so he was not taught proper socializing, thus causing him anxiety and insecurities. Daniel was able to provide the assurance that Rocky would respond well to his method of training. We have been working together only a few months on a weekly to bi weekly basis and Rocky has super manners. He is meeting dogs with respect and confidence. He is now progressing his obedience and starting Psyciatric Service dog training. I'm very happy with Daniel's service.
I wanted to let you know how valuable the beginners obedience training was for my Airedale, Toby, and me. Tobey is 15 months old and before I brought her to you, she was out of control. I’m not sure I was ready to admit that when we started but I soon realized it was true. After just one week the difference in her was remarkable. After six weeks, she was like a new dog. She can now be controlled and no longer has the bad habits I thought were just "being a puppy". I have learned what you already know, that it is easier to train Tobey than it is to train me! Thanks again for a wonderful experience and if you ever need a reference, please don’t hesitate to call me.
We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.
Basic obedience training , and training my dog not to pull on the leash.. Philip and Michelle Kaough were awesome with my dog. I would highly recommend Philip and Michelle to people with new puppies. They have a true understanding of dogs and their underlying motivators. They helped my husband and I see how vital structure and consistency is for Bo's happiness and well being. I really hope in the furture that we get to continue to the next level of training class with them.
So far, the experience has been satisfactory. We have only attended one of 8 sessions at this time. Ron is very professional and eager to share his knowledge of canine obedience training.
Her connection with our dogs was immediate, they respond very well for her, her people training skills pretty good to😁
Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca
Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!
Worked with my little Chihuahua Jax & after one training session I saw he was better already and getting rid of all those bad habits!
David is a great trainer. He has helped us tremendously with our Pitbull Shiloh. He was reactive towards other dogs and we just couldn't take him anywhere. We were looking for a long term trainer we can rely on and David has definitely been reliable. We did his behavior modification then his basic obedience and his advanced obedience. Shiloh can now walk nicely on his leash around other dogs even in stores!
My puppy, Khloe, just finished Connie's 6 week obedience class. Connie is a great trainer and Khloe learned a lot! I highly recommend her.
Kevin is a professional trainer: I was fortunate to have him answer my request for a puppy trainer: at the time two puppies...after one training session I realized that I had one puppy too many and found my aggressive puppy a kingdom of his own! giggle Kevin showed up on time each Saturday (6 lessons) and arrived prepared with a training agenda that he held to: My puppy is 4 months old, male and German Shepherd so it is extremely important because of the size dog he will become for him to have good training and manners! Kevin taught him: to sit/stay, to walk calmly on lead (not pulling on the leash), to go up and down a car loading ramp. I am (extremely grateful for this training because it is a relief to have it done in preparation for the future). Kevin and I walked 'Bear' down the street to socialize him with the neighbor dogs...he learned to walk by them without challenging them to a 'fence-run-bark'! We are still working on this. I was a bit apprehensive when beginning training and Kevin told me "when you are nervous it travels all the way down the leash in to the dog and the dog knows"... We graduated Basic obedience training last Saturday 12-17-16 and received a Merit Certificate for both of us and Bear received a Rawhide bone too. Kudos to Kevin for such good training and patience with both of us! I highly recommend him for your training needs...
After doing hours of research and training on my own with my young dog, I was at my wits end with everything from potty training, to walking nicely. After speaking with Holly from Furry Tail Dog Training, we identified all of my concerns, and she gave me a clear and easy plan to help me guide my wild puppy to becoming a lovable, and manageable dog! We are so grateful for her help, because I am now taking my dog on walks with a lose lead when once I didn't think it was possible! And potty training woes are a thing of the distant past!
Paul at K9city was amazing. Very honest, professional and caring. He has helped us so much with our dogs behavior problems. Still a work in progress but Paul continues to check in with us, gives us feedback and suggestions and supports us in any way he can. Paul and K9city have been a lifesaver for our family and our dog, we can not thank him enough!!
Melissa has helped with our new dog who had serious abandonment issues. Our dog is now much more social and less anxious thru the positive training Melissa emphasized. She really loves her work.
