Pete gave us a great starting point to start training our dog with behavioral problems. We started working on impulse control, feeding rituals, and commanding her attention in a stressful environment for our dog.
Working with Courtney was great. She gave us a lot of tips and tricks for Motley's leash reactivity and most importantly helped us understand his frame of mind and body language. Would definitely reach out again for any dog training needs!
Five stars out of five!!! Tammy is a great trainer. In only three sessions, my new little rescue dog is doing all the training basics: sit, stay, heel, come, and down. We are working on others. Plus, Tammy is personable, patient, and so dog knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!
Logan is a GREAT trainer for Humans!!!! His gift for handling and training my new Family member Beala (dog) is inspiring. Thank you Logan
Les is the best of the best when it comes to dog training. He knows his stuff and it was apparent from the way he connected with our dog in the first training session. He truly cares about each client and is committed to seeing them succeed. We saw results after the very first training session and the progress was remarkable following each session. Les comes prepared to each session with treats and training aids. He gives you "homework" to do with your dog after each session to prepare you for the next. He even follows up with you after each meeting to see how things are going. Les played a significant role in shaping our puppy into the dog he is today. I highly recommend Les for dog training, we will definitely use his services again!
We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.
Debbie is AMAZING! She walks or takes my dogs to the dog park 2 times a week and shes amazing. My dogs LOVE her. I usually get text message updates or pictures and she is always so fast to respond via text! Couldn't do it without her!
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!
Christina was great with my dog. They went on an hour walk and he came home and was ready for a nap. She made him a friend for life with treats. She will be coming back again this week.
Rusty is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of dog training. We found him through Thumbtack. What set him apart from other trainers who responded to my ad was his attention to my exact details for the needs I required for my dog. He pin-pointed the specific areas he would be able to focus on helping us and highlighted his experience in these areas, which is very extensive. We also love that he travels to our home and helps our dog in the environment that is most comfortable to him. He eventually shifted outside of the home, incorporating other physical spaces that were natural to the outside world. His first meeting with us was complimentary because he wanted to make sure he was the right fit for us, as much as we were the right fit for him. We appreciated that he had our dog's interest at heart. He explained that he has been working in shelters for many many years and with former bait dogs and Vietnamese street dogs for years, helping to reduce fears and aggression. He also had extensive knowledge on providing basic commanding tools. He has recently started his own company and is clearly ready to have his own business up and running. I do hope this review will assure those looking for the right trainer to give Rusty a call for your complimentary consultation. Rusty is a dog whisperer and I would highly recommend his services. We are so grateful to have found him.
I had a meet & greet with Sonia yesterday; she brought her "pack" of dogs to meet my dog, who is sometimes aggressive toward other dogs. Sonia really seems to know her stuff, and gave me great advice on dealing with my dog!! And he behaved pretty well around all her dogs, thanks to her coaching! I was impressed!
Emily is fantastic! She began working with our 6 month old weim only 4 weeks ago, and he is already a different dog. He has learned to be better on the leash, developing better response to commands such as sit and stay. Emily truly listens to the needs of the family and is very responsive to the individual dog needs. She is dependable, responsible and when you meet her, you can just feel her passion and dedication to puppy training. She sent us regular daily updates about our puppy's progress, including video clips. When we first started, our puppy was shy of other dogs, but after only 2 weeks, he was braver and more assertive in the dog park with other pets. Emily is a pleasure to work with and we have just signed up for another 4 weeks of training to continue building on the progress our doggies has made. She is down to earth and caring. She is also not afraid to say when something isn't working, which we truly appreciated. Our dog didn't like the halti leash, so after a couple of weeks of training, Emily came up with a different leash option and was very honest about the reasons for the change. It's refreshing to work with such a professional. Thank you, Emily, for all your dedication and hard work!
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!
Ryan is awesome. I moved to the area and didn't know anyone. My dogs are so important to me and I was anxious about finding a dog walker to help me out. From the start Ryan was really positive and super nice. He is communicative and flexible. He mixes up the walks by taking my dogs to the dog park and for walks. My schedule can be a little unpredictable and Ryan is always able to adjust. I highly recommend him!
Stella not only watched my puppy but trained him this past week! She has saved my life with the potty training and it only took her a few days!!! She is very knowledgeable when it comes to puppies. Everything went smoothly! I was so happy to get updates and pictures of him everyday. I'll be using her again for sure.
Erika is absolutely amazing with my senior golden retriever. Hope loves Erika because she is loving, cautious and very observant of my dog's needs. I am very picky about who I allow to walk my dog due to her health concerns. Erika takes her time and makes sure that all of Hope's needs are taking care of including change of water, and cleaning up any of Hope's "you know what" on our patio. I cannot recommend this young lady enough. Her gracious and calm personality make her highly valuable. She is absolutely dependable and listens to all of the directives I gave her about Hope. Hire her, and do not let her get away, you will not be sorry.
Dear Pet Owner, It is with extreme pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Laura Tait of Lauras Pet Services. I met Laura at a local dog park several years ago and since then she has cared for Milo (my Chihuahua/Terrier mix) many times. Laura is extremely responsible, dependable, and trustworthy. She has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. She is wonderfully patient and always loving towards Milo, who quickly became very comfortable around her. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. She has always listened intently to my instructions and is always willing to work with me to meet all of Milos needs. In addition to all the basic requirements, I completely trust her to administer medication and follow through with any special pet needs. When it comes to Milos health and well-being, I have complete confidence in her knowledge and judgment. Laura is an excellent communicator. She always does a great job of keeping me informed about how Milo is feeling and behaving. When I call, she often tells me about little, special moments in Milos day. She is very accommodating with changes in schedule, and I am always amazed at how quickly she returns my phone calls. She is very flexible and has never had to cancel on me. The longest time Laura cared for Milo was for 3 weeks this past June-July. The peace of mind we enjoy on our vacations knowing that Milo is being so lovingly cared for is invaluable. We are able to relax and enjoy the vacations we cant take Milo on knowing he is in the best hands. The happiness and contentment I see in Milo when we return is priceless. There is no one I would trust with any pet of mine more than Laura. She is a model caregiver, who truly cares for the welfare of all pets. Milo and I are happy to recommend Laura without qualification. I am confident that any pet owner would be fully satisfied with her services. Please feel free to call me if you would like a verbal confirmation of this letter. Dawn San Jose
We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!
Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.
I highly recommend Barkeley K-9 University. Pat keeps an open mind and always has an idea/solution for any issues. He has knowledge of numerous methods (not all dogs are the same!) and makes training pleasurable for both owner & dog. Always punctual & professional, he works well with people and teaches you how to work efficiently with your pets. Over the years, we have trained 3 dogs with Pat and are always pleased with the outcome. Group classes have been great as well. We receive many compliments on how well behaved our dogs are. Best of all, dogs love him!
