Pete came to help a first time dog trainer (myself) with my new rescue dog. Just as he says is needed for success he was calm cool collected. He gave a lot of ritual information to help with the relationship of me and the dog. She already does better on walks (yes same day) with using the prong collar. We worked with her on place and the same day she is using the spot to relax which has made her less anxious! Very knowledgable and is straightforward on how to train your dog and most importantly yourself! We are key to our dogs success.
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 very professional you can tell he loves animals his work quality is awesome my dog is now a happier dog and I must admit so am . his teaching techniques are so easy to follow he truly is worth it I am extremely happy with him Thank you Jane S
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!
John is very knowledgeable about the psychology of dogs and he came to our house to show us how to deal with the specific problems we were having at home. Taking our dog out to another trainer was not addressing our specific behavior problems at home. John is very nice and caring of our dog and we have been very happy with his dog training. He has given us the tools that we need to work on our dogs behavior and let our dog be an active member of our family.
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!
Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!
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!
Erika takes excellent care of my cats. She always sends pictures or videos and status updates when she is watching them. They seem happier and calmer when I get home than they have when I used other cat sitters. She follows care instructions well, is very easy to schedule with and her rates are competitive. She's clearly an animal lover!
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.
I'll only hire Yang and her family to walk my dog. They are nice and have my trust. I don't have to worry about dog agent send different strangers in my house while I'm not there every time.
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.
Brandon has been taking my dog Andre out on dog park outings for several months now. Andre is a bit reactive but Brandon took on the challenge and has figured out a way to get Andre his exercise and manage his reactivity as well. I like that he gives me reports on their outings and also mentions health issues that he may notice. He gave me great advice on a new food to help ease Andre's itchy skin too! He's very reliable and if there ever is something that comes up where he needs to miss an outing I am always given plenty of time to make alternative arrangements. Most importantly, Andre loves him!
Karin walks my dog Bodie every day, rain or shine. Karin is nice, responsible, clearly crazy about the dogs, and great about letting me know her plan for the day. I get regular photos of Bodie having a great time, and he's always wiped out when he gets home. A tired dog is a happy dog!
We hired Beth a few months ago to take our dogs on walks as we needed her services. Due to my recent fractured ankle, we have used Beth's dog walking and pet sitting services for 5-6 days per week. Beth is reliable, conscientious and punctual. She is very loving towards our two dogs as well as our cat. We trust her in our home when we are not home. We are very fortunate to have Beth's services and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring her. You will rest at ease knowing your pets are well cared for when you are not home.
Emily has taken care of our Golden Retriever and black lab on a handful of occasions, and she is wonderful! She has so much experience with all sorts of dogs, so I knew that our energetic (but sometimes anxious) dogs were in good hands. She knew what to do when introducing them to others , and they got plenty of exercise with her and came back to us tired and happy. It's so great to drop them off at a home that you know will give them so much love and attention during the day. Highly recommend!
