KYM IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MY DOG AND I BOTH;SHE IS AWESOME! SHE KNOWS HER STUFF AND IS VERY KIND!Frida is my first dog & considered by some a "problem breed".I rescued her mother & siblings & found then all homes...except Frida, I chose her from the litter.Years before meeting Kym, I read up a bit. I did some things right for my puppy! Icrate trained her, and took her to puppy classes. She was easily potty trained, and trained not to bark, chew or nibble on fingers. She learned to sit, stay, fetch, and high five. She is very loyal& sweet and once scared off an intruder who came in through my kitchen window at night!!!! I thought everything was great. Frida always had a big yard, a bed inside, and always seemed happy. At about 6 years old, we moved to a smaller place. Frida had a dog run &we played often but @ 65 lbs, she needed to go on walks. I then realized what a naughty human I had been. Frida was totally unsocialized, she tugged on her leash, would nip if strangers tried to pet her, disliked children, and refused to come when I called her. She liked to chase motorcycles..skate boards, trucks, & cats.....oh my!I had inadvertently conditioned her to be a yard guard dog. ...with very poor social skills and bad manners. Total nightmare @ the park!I became so worried about her running off and her seemingly aggressive behavior, our walks became very stressful. I felt guilty and stressed!I tried a few trainers who suggested choke chains and various techniques until KYM RESCUED US!!!!! She convinced me to bring my 6 year old dog to puppy classes. I always say Kym trained me and my dog responded quickly. She didn't let me waste anymore time feeling worried our stressed. She was kind, patient, and well informed. It became a simple matter of me learning to understand my dogs needs and behavior. Frida comes when called, doesn't chase cars, and has even spent time at doggy day care with other dogs!!!!! She's even nice to the cable guy! Yet, I'm still confident Frida would stave off any intruders!Kym trained us both well!! I have my sweet best buddy back with more play options than ever! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KYM FOR ANY DOGGY NEEDS YOU MAY HAVE!!!!
He is very good at explaining and teaching how to teach the dog. My dogs learned very quickly. Probably best when they are large dogs.
Denise started training my older Dog Ramsey who was very hard to walk because he is dog aggressive! But within days he was so much better. We really appreciate her knowledge of training animals. And her love and patience with them.
Audrey is excellent working with my pit/mastiff who had socialization issues.
So far our experience has been outstanding! Cassandra is great with our dog and he is learning very fast...they not only train your dog but they train you as well! Would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking to tame their wild beasts!!
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.
LOVE this company! I've never had a dog walker before, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was pleased to find out that Thor loves Megan, his new dog walker. Seeing as my work hours aren't getting any shorter, I'm happy I can trust Dogma to give me some peace of mind that Thor will be happy when I get home.
Kevin is a professional trainer: I was fortunate to have him answer my request for a puppy trainer: at the time two puppies...after one training session I realized that I had one puppy too many and found my aggressive puppy a kingdom of his own! giggle Kevin showed up on time each Saturday (6 lessons) and arrived prepared with a training agenda that he held to: My puppy is 4 months old, male and German Shepherd so it is extremely important because of the size dog he will become for him to have good training and manners! Kevin taught him: to sit/stay, to walk calmly on lead (not pulling on the leash), to go up and down a car loading ramp. I am (extremely grateful for this training because it is a relief to have it done in preparation for the future). Kevin and I walked 'Bear' down the street to socialize him with the neighbor dogs...he learned to walk by them without challenging them to a 'fence-run-bark'! We are still working on this. I was a bit apprehensive when beginning training and Kevin told me "when you are nervous it travels all the way down the leash in to the dog and the dog knows"... We graduated Basic obedience training last Saturday 12-17-16 and received a Merit Certificate for both of us and Bear received a Rawhide bone too. Kudos to Kevin for such good training and patience with both of us! I highly recommend him for your training needs...
Carissa puts her heart into your pet. I feel 100% confident that she will take the best care of my dog. The happiness and love my dog shows for her confirms that she is the best. She's experienced and knowledgeable in proper handling, washing, training, walking/running, and socializing. It's the all around package for anything you need for your pet and to reduce your workload as a pet parent! I'd recommend her to anyone!
Franco is the most amazing dog trainer! After much research, I decided to go with Franco over many other training classes. I am so glad I did. He trained my 12 week pug puppy. Franco provided a lot of useful information, education and modeled how to teach my puppy. Franco's classes are extremely reasonable in price...extremely competitive. Franco only uses positive reinforcement, which was very important to me in choosing a trainer. Franco was willing to answer any questions I had related to behaviors, food choices, or hygiene. I will definitely be back to work with Franco.
My husband and I and our two dogs, Megan and Remy, attended Dixie's obedience class in January 2013. Dixie is a patient and accomodating instructor. We appreciated the time she took with our dogs and others in the class to help us get it right! I also appreciate her support and referrals of my fledgling pet photography business. Dixie is the best!
