Hiring Robert was the best thing we ever did for us and our dog. We rescued a 90 pound 1.5 year old chocolate lab who was an anxious and rambunctious ball of energy. Because of the bad habits he had from his previous home, we had no idea how to make any progress with him. He was destroying our home and making our lives worse, not better. Beyond that, we felt we weren't able to give him the life we wanted to, because we weren't able to communicate with him. He wasn't happy and neither were we. We finally decided to hire someone and after talking to Robert on the phone, it was a done deal. He took 45 minutes to chat with me on the phone to really learn about our dog and his issues and explained in detail how he could help. He'll tell you up front, he's not the cheapest option in town, but he's definitely one of the best. His process is as follows: he takes the dog for a period of time (in our case, 1 week) and he dials the dog in with the basics. Teaches them leash manners, house manners, etc. If our dog didn't learn anything more after that 1 week, it still would have been worth it. He came back a new dog. Same sweet personality, but SO much more enjoyable to be around. We could finally communicate with him! But the kicker is that, after Robert takes the dog, he offers once a week training classes with a group of other dogs he's trained. This is where the real magic happens. We have seen such an incredible transformation in our pup. Our friends and family have commented on numerous occasions that hiring Robert was the best money we could have spent, and we couldn't agree more. If you're on the fence about the money, or you're wondering if it's worth it, don't. It's worth every cent.
Karen has an open and contagious passion for dogs and the art of dog owner training. She has been responsive, flexible, and helpful. Tremendous value for the price; she beats everyone in the market while offering competitive skill and expertise. Give her a try you won’t be disappointed.
Kerri is great at what she does. Within the first few moments of teaching my dog obedience I was blown away from her techniques, my border collie responded well to her, she gave me great advice and methods to train my dog. Since then my border is doing well on learning to obey. Takes a lot of patience but it's well worth it! I highly recommend her!
She was amazing!!! Kristen was able to get my dog to actually go near her from the beginning and that is not an easy feat at all. She taught my dog and me some very helpful and new tricks. I just loved our session! And I can't express that enough.
Evangeline has been walking my young and very energetic pointer mix. My dog is a shelter dog with limited manners and social skills. Evangeline has been patient and kind with her, and is helping her to learn how to walk on a leash. Evangeline is reliable and accommodating. My dog and I are so glad to have found her!
I can not say enough good things about custom K-9 service dogs. For starters, Kendall was very prompt. She showed up exactly when she said she would, and she did not waste any time getting started with the training. She made sure to explain each training technique, and allowed time for me to practice the technique before moving on to the next. I am a first time puppy mom, and Kendall gave me the tools I needed to begin a successful training program with my dog. The excellent service did not stop once she left. Kendall encouraged me to call or text with any questions or concerns, which she has also been very promt in answering. I will definitely be using her service experience again.
Ellen Dale Rand is an excellent dog trainer with experience and knowledge that puts her at the top of her field. I have felt totally confident in her ability with my dogs and I give high praise for her expertise in all areas of dog training. She is reliable and trustworthy when scheduling private appointments or group classes. You won't be disappointed!
