I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.
I bought the Basic and Advanced Package (8 training sessions). I have only been to two classes, but I have already seen great improvements in my dog. My lab mix was a rescue, so she came with some bad habits and a compete lack of structure. In two lessons I have been able to create this structure. With the help of my trainer my dog will be a rock star. However, it also takes a lot of work from me. Dog training doesn't start and end at the lessons. Keep in mind you have go put the work into your dog. If you get the lessons and put the time/work in with your dog, you will be very pleased. I could not have done this without Off Leash San Diego! Thank you!
I had to leave my 10 week old puppy for a pre-planned out of country trip for a 10 day board and train with Michael. When we returned, we were happy to see that our puppy was doing well and she came home with no issues. The Pros: Michael spends a lot of time with you to answer questions during the face to face consultation, which is nice. It was also great to see Michael's dog, Travis, and how amazingly well trained he is. Secondly, the price is very affordable when compared to other places for a board and train. Note: I cant really vouch for the training piece because our puppy is so young that she probably absorbed very little in the short period of time she was with him. She is a bit better on leash than before though and I am sure Michael and his dog Travis had a hand in that. The Cons: Michael wasn't very good with communication with me throughout the board and train. I would have really appreciated regular daily updates with pictures on how our little puppy was doing, but I received one update after several requests and so I just gave up. Our puppy also had diarrhea upon returning home and I cant say for sure whether she was being fed the food that I provided or not. I could have been more demanding and call and badger him but that's not really the type of person I am. Ultimately, for me, it would have been nice to receive unsolicited updates and information regarding my puppies stay with Michael. Overall I think Michael's services definitely has value. I would recommend him for anyone that is on a budget and has a dog that needs basic training in manners and socialization with other dogs. I would recommend him only for those owners that are very hands off and do not require a lot of feedback.
Carrie is the best! If your dog prefers a warm and welcoming home to stay in vs. a dog camp, than look no further. Carrie is first and foremost a canine professional. She understands dogs and takes great car of them. She is always willing to keep you posted while you are away as to your pet's visit, including pics and videos so you know your dog is having a great time. Carrie is easy to work with and very responsive. Bottom line: if you want to go out of town and feel completely at peace that your dog is well taken care of (and having fun!) the go see Carrie!
Shelley (North County Dog Training) was wonderful and very professional. I had a good conection with her regarding Horton(my dog). I am giving her the five stars. Thank You !!
Owning a Siberian husky makes for a hyper dog, needing alot of attention... from the very beginning I was taught all there is to know about reading, home life, feeding, controlling, and training my crazy dog! I am now able to walk in busy areas with other animals without a lead, and I don't have to worry about not being able to control my dog. I look at other owners out there who everyday and I only wish they would train with Ed as well!! By far the best experience I have ever had and I will be a lifetime client!
Mike worked with dog, Rocco, and I to prepare for the CGC test. He is not only an excellent trainer, who has perfected his skill set and demonstrates passion combined with eternal patience, he is very personable and caring. He was just as invested in Rocco's success as I was. I could not recommend him more highly. We hope to continue training with Mike and go on to take therapy dog and maybe service dog tests in the future.
We have had a great experience working with Paws Play and our pups are well taken care of. A lot of flexibility in regards to schedules, responsive to questions, and making every effort to take care of the needs of their customers. I highly recommend Paws Play...
The pups love going to Paws and Go Dog Camp!! They get lots of love, attention and playtime. Yvette is flexible and easy to work with. She truly is a pet lover!! **Ask for the Fiesta Package!!
Cares for my cats better than I do! Always there, medications given on time, kind and gentle. The cats are always eager to see her. Sets up an ever popular 'cat nip camp' in the home when I travel. Trusted person!
We came across Specialty Dog Training in a frantic search to find someone to train our one year old male Mastiff (Ronin) who was becoming a little aggressive with unfamiliar strangers. We had no idea how to properly handle the situation and we were getting to the point where we just wanted to give up. Luckily, we stumbled upon Specialty Dog Training and were able to get in touch with Graham and Braelyn right away. They are simply amazing!! They kept us updated often with pictures and his progress during his 4-week boot camp. Ronin came back a completely different dog, in the best way possible! He knows his commands, he respects us as handlers, and is all-around a more balanced, well-behaved pup! We will forever be grateful for the patience and love that Graham and Braelyn had for Ronin to make him the way he is today. Thank you SDT!
