Pete is an outstanding dog trainer. We only needed one lesson and he showed me what I need to do to get my dog to walk without pulling, stay in her bed for an extended period of time and to calm down when people come over. He showed me and left it up to me to practice the exercises with her. She has really improved and now the walks are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend Pete and his services. He even read my 2 year old grandaughter a book when we were done!
Courtney is an excellent dog trainer. Our puppy and we have learned so much from her - she focuses on great modeling and positive reinforcement and her enthusiasm and professionalism are ever present. I have recommended Courtney to others and will continue to do so. She is excellent.
Logan is a natural. He’s extremely attentive to my puppy and his method of training is very effective while being very kind and passionate towards my dog. He’s the ultimate dog whisperer!
Tammy is a wonderful dog trainer! I have had my dog for three years now. In the first year of adopting my dog from rescue center; he had a lot of anxiety and bark non- stop. In about seven months with working with the techniques Tammy would suggest he no longer barks when I'm not home. I encourage and recommend Tammy as your dog trainer . She has a lot of knowledge on the psychology of dog behavior , and you will see your dog have major improvements.
Les is fantastic! He is truly dedicated and passionate about the services he provides. Not only is he a great trainer and dog walker companion, his pet delivery service is perfect for anyone in need of a drop off or pick up that just doesn't work in your schedule. I highly recommend giving him a shot, you will NOT be disappointed!
My Newfypoo pup Jelly Bean is a handful, especially considering I have never had a dog before. I was fortunate enough to stumble on John Vinton's site, after being dropouts from Sirius group puppy training. His technique is unique as he does not advocate stuffing the dog with never ending treats. Instead, consistent reinforcement of commands accompanied with appropriate overwhelming praise when deserved. We're only 3 lessons in. I am so proud of my Bean, especially when compared to other dogs we meet on our walks. We both still have a lot to learn and with the help of "A Better Dog Trainer" I know we'll be successful.
Rusty at Pawgress dog training has been an absolutely amazing trainer for our reactive cattle dog/ border collie mix. He has really given us so much information and shined light on some new techniques and strategies! We have found it so useful to have our dog practice with his dogs and we love the feedback and guidance! His PDFs have helped us to be able to practice and apply at home in between trainings as well! We can’t thank Rusty enough for the work this far! We look forward to training every week as we see our dog (and us!) make strides!
Jackie is a very talented dog trainer. She is at the same time sweet and strong. She teaches at the same time the dogs and the owners. We highly recommend her.
great dog trainer!
Emily is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable dog trainers I have ever met. I contracted her when I adopted a rescue with severe separation anxiety and who never had any formal training. Within 6 weeks my pup mastered basic commands, and we were well on our way to overcoming his separation anxiety. I would recommend Emily without hesitation to anyone looking for expert help!
Emily was amazing with Winston! I couldn't have asked for a better trainer for my puppy! In the 4 weeks of training he became a much more obedient and well mannered little pup. I am more than confident to recommend Emily and her training camp to whom ever needs an efficient and responsible trainer.
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.
Cannot find a more knowledgeable or caring dog trainer than Tricia. I took my Scottie and Min Pin to classes with Tricia for years until I moved out of the area. When I went out of town I would leave my dogs with Tricia to care for them, they loved her and her dog Zeus to death! The move made me appreciate her even more. Everyone comments on how well behaved my dogs are and I always attribute it to the best dog trainer in the country.
I have worked with Mary for a week now and she has been incredible. We have a new puppy and she has really gone above and beyond to help us with him, visiting up to 3 times per day. She is very prompt, receptive to suggestions and requests, provides consistent updates, helps with training, and -- most importantly -- clearly cares about our pup! We were a little nervous to leave him alone while at work and it gives us great peace of mind to know he is in Mary's capable hands. We plan on working with Mary indefinitely to help us with our new family member. I recommend her enthusiastically for any and all of your canine walking/training/visiting needs!
Phoebe B trained our German Shepard dog and of all the trainers we have used she made the most progress in helping the dog to become more comfortable with different people and situations. She also took care of both our dogs and the dogs are very excited when they see Phoebe. Phoebe is very personable, open, and patient. We liked her a lot and had she not moved away from our area, we would continue to have her train and care for our dogs. She is also a very sincere and nice person! Would highly recommend her.
Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.
Simply put Koru K9 is awesome. I've made 3 behavior change sessions in the course of 1.5 months and puppy is way way better. She used to be a very nervous dog, afraid of everything and anything. Now she is calm, relaxed, walk beautifully by our side, doesn't bark to other dogs walking around. She still has lots to learn and training is an ongoing process, Koru K9 will teach you how to make your dog a better dog, they are great!
Lillac Komanski is an excellent dog trainer! Whatever problems we are having with our dog, she teaches us just what to do to resolve the issue. She also gives us tools to deal with other situations that may come up. Lillac's guidance, help, and support are invaluable in training our pet. We have been using her services for years and continue to be extremely happy with her work!
She did a great job helping me get the apartment organized and manage excess clutter. As an added bonus - the dog and cat just adores her!
