Shayne has made training my puppy both easy and enjoyable! I never realized how simple it could be! She has been very patient with all of my questions and offered common sense solutions to some problems I had been experiencing with my dog. I highly recommend Shayne to anyone who wants to have a well behaved dog and lots of fun while training!

I rescued a pit/mix from a shelter back East.Her name is Molly and when she arrived at her new home she was out of control..I knew I needed desperate help with training Molly .I then called Fresno bully rescue and they referred me to Joe.What a big difference .He is well educated with dogs and is a great trainer.He also teaches the owner different tactics to use when training your pet..Joe does not need to use treats to train and he has the most resonabe rates then others.I would highly recommend Joe Ozier from way of dog .

I worked with Karrie at Perfect Paws and I have never seen such amazing progress in my shiba inu! As a puppy, you want to think you are doing everything you can to keep as many "bad habits" at bay, but there is always something that rears its ugly head. I have had other trainers I've worked with before, but Karrie really understands what it means to be a behavioralist. I went from having a over-anxious and chew up my carpets dog to having a perfectly tempered dog who has never chewed on the carpets again! She helped me not only understand the length at which my behavior affects my dog, but also helped me truly understand the needs of dogs. There is a HUGE difference between dog and human psychology. Her approach may be direct and something you are definitely not used to, but give her a chance and she will prove to you in less than 15 minutes that she can change your dog's life and your's!! Thank you Karrie! I don't know what I would have done without you :)

I have worked with Debbie now for a little over 6 weeks with my dog Lena focusing on socialization and reactivity around other dogs in public and at home. I wanted to be able to bring Lena along to events outside in public areas and feel comfortable and in control of my pet. Lena has attended 3-4 outside dinners at restaurants with people and other dogs, gone into petsmart on adoption Saturdays, and walked around downtown areas since training with Debbie. All of which were not possible or very stressful before. I am so happy I have trained with Debbie All Ears Dog Training and look forward to continue working with my dog and improving our time together :) I would highly recommend training to improve your bond with your pet and overall lifestyle!

Off-Leash K9 Training is bar none the standard by which every dog should be trained in obedience. They get the job done and get it done right.

About

I have been around animals (especially dogs and cats) for 25 years. Living the life of a veterinarian's daughter from the age of 5 has taught me many valuable lessons in the animal kingdom and life. When it comes to the pet world, one can learn "how to respond" to certain animals in a certain ways. I have the animal background and the capability to help others to understand their companion and pet. Those who are not so familiar or comfortable with animals, those who are just curious to learn about dogs and cats alike (my main specialty in animals is canines and felines), I am not here to give any veterinary advice, however, I can refer you to some great veterinarians, depending upon the situation or species of the animal. What I can do for you is give you the valuable tools needed to shape yours and your family's relationship with your dog or cat. I have great danes; everyone's first reaction is to their size, but they and most dogs are so much more in depth than that; think about how the chihuahua behaves as opposed to the great dane. It's not always just how the breed generally behaves (which is key in how the training process of your pet will progress), but also equally important in integrating and training your new family member is you and how you will interact with your pet. I can give basic knowledge of typical breed behaviors, how you may be able to help along the process, calm the dog when over-excited, over-whelmed or just possibly unruly. This training is not only going to train your dog, but you. It takes commitment, dedication and love if your pet training is to succeed (and your pet is not the only one in training, in fact it will be you that will be doing most of the training and transforming). Learning how to react to a canine's response(s) will give you most of the knowledge you will need to train your pet to your specific lifestyle (i.e. children in the home, timid behavior and overly-excited). Also, I will bring my great dane to you for various occasions such as introducing children to large dogs (he loves kids and loves to play), introducing those who are weary of dogs or large dogs, how to interact with your pet, family interactions, basic obedience training, and show parties for entertainment with "his" unscripted, but always incredible show (because he just loves to be center stage and loves kids even more). If you have any questions that I may be able to answer, just let me know.

No two dogs are the same so no training program should ever be same. I like to create a program that will best be understood by the clients dog. This will pave the way for clear communication and a better overall relationship between the dog and it's owner. As for my experience, I have spent thousands of hours training high drive dogs in obedience and protection work. This experience has made my skills much more effective when it comes to lower drive pets.

I use a variety of techniques for training, after all each dog has a different personality. One technique might work well with one dog but not another. Some dogs require more time and patience than others. I never use any harsh methods or harmful methods. I believe that a well trained dog is much happier and healthier.

If you are looking for someone to take care of your dog while you're out of town, or trying to get your dog to simply shake hands I am willing to provide that service for you. I can also train your dog into becoming less afraid of other dogs. For instance, my dog used to be afraid if other bigger dogs. With more exposure from the dogs he's afraid of, he is not afraid anymore. He doesn't growl or cower under me anymore. If you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.

I use positive reinforcement. Training this way makes your dog feel like they're doing the commands to plead you not because they're made to do them. Whisk makes for a happier dog and that's what I like the see happy we'll trained dogs
