We hired Beth for our one year old Border Collie mix. Beth is very attentive and knowledgeable. She was able to curve our spirited dog's behavior in a a few sessions. She is very thorough and has wonderful follow up skills. She will send an email after each session outlining the key points we covered. We affectionately call her the "Dog Whisperer". She truly helped us get our dog's behaviors under control. Thank you Beth!
John is great! His help and suggestions made a real difference in our dog's behavior. Our dog is happier and so are we! We especially liked how John worked with our dog in our home environment, including our young children and general chaos! We highly recommend John. He has a true understanding of dogs and the reasons behind their behaviors.
Paula is truly an outstanding trainer. We have worked with four or five trainers over the years and she is by far the most effective and professional. Her method of addressing the root of Lucky's leash reactivity works and makes sense - she doesn't rely on treats as distractions, nor does she rely on force. Her training and background in wild animal behavior and observation shows. She is organized and easy to schedule with and work with. Paula is a wonderful person and we consider her a friend as well. We can see that she truly cares about Lucky's development and about us. She often spends far over the allotted time - while this is her business, it is clear to see that dogs are also her passion. Couldn't ask for a better trainer and we wish we had discover her sooner!
Even after the first session, we experienced a very positive difference in our dog's behavior as well as the effectiveness of our commands as owners. Daniel Ross has done an excellent job in giving us the necessary tools and have thoroughly enjoyed the training. Thank you Daniel!
Look no further for a dog trainer, Mel is the best. She is passionate, patient, and excellent with animals. In the short time that we have used her we have seen results and a more disciplined dog. She cares so much about your animal that she is always available for consultation over the phone. She has boarded and trained our dog when my family went on vacation and sent follow up videos and photos of our puppy on our vacation. We look forward to a long term relationship with Mel and our adorable and well trained puppy.
Had a session with Dave earlier today. Already see changes in my dog and how chaotic my home has been. He talked to me a lot about dog behavior which was valuable to me. He was very professional and knew exactly what needed to be done. I highly recommend him.
Philip and Michelle were great with our dog Pip-boy. When we contacted them Pip was aggressive and nervous, with little confidence. He had attacked our smaller dog a few times and was an all around bully to her. He also had a very difficult time being left alone. Philip and Michelle helped to build up his confidence and in turn helped to lessen his aggressive and nervous behaviors. Their dog Loki also helped socialize Pip and was impressively well trained. Pip now gets along with our smaller dog, Tootsie, and is more at ease when we leave him alone. In the six weeks that we've worked with them I can see that our Pip is a different dog. He's happier, more relaxed, and more at ease. Philip and Michelle we're always accommodating and welcomed any and all questions we had through the training process. We would highly recommend K.O. Dog training!
Very grateful for Lis's arranged phone call, our meeting with Cesar and Lis tomorrow, and their professionalism. Looking forward to working with them for my precious dog Quincy!
I went to Taylor Made Working Dogs for help with competition obedience, and a few behavior issues with my 2 year old female German shepherd. Kris Taylor has not only helped me see and understand what was really going on, but has also led me towards my goals. His understanding of dog behavior and how they learn is a rare find in any aspect of training (if your looking for pet obedience, behavior modification, protection or competition).
They have been extremely great with our babies and our foster doggies!! Super thorough and knowedgeabke about animals, and very flexible and helpful. We work with Alexis and she is fabulous! We highly recommend them! :)
We recently moved to Valley Center and needed a dog walker - I found Heather on Thumbtack and I'm so glad I did. She is GREAT! She comes to our house daily to walk our weimaraner - she gives me daily updates (texts/pictures) which is above and beyond. She has been super reliable, trustworthy and is also very accommodating (coming over on the weekend last minute to let my dog out and walk her). I wouldn't think twice about recommending her - just be careful your animals might love her more than they love you!! Kidding - but she is really THAT good! :)
Audrey was great to work with. She is very patient and took her time working with me as well as Max. I am pleased with Max's much improved behavior and new skills.
Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.
Jennifer is great with my pups! She's reliable, trustworthy and such an animal lover! Highly recommend her!
My daughter rescued a frenchie and we didn’t know what she had been through. We knew she was super sweet and very loving and smart but she had some really bad issues....... wanting to “kill” the TV when and animal was on and also she had leash aggression. So today Tommy came to the rescue. First of all he is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of dogs and second Stella was so comfortable around him. Within 10 minutes we had her TV behavior under control, I was shocked and we did work on walking on a leash...... I learned I needed to be in control and by Tommy teaching me what to do made it so easy for Stella..... I can’t wait for our second lesson, what a pleasure it will be to have a well trained rescued dog!
David is a great trainer. He has helped us tremendously with our Pitbull Shiloh. He was reactive towards other dogs and we just couldn't take him anywhere. We were looking for a long term trainer we can rely on and David has definitely been reliable. We did his behavior modification then his basic obedience and his advanced obedience. Shiloh can now walk nicely on his leash around other dogs even in stores!
Paul at K9city was amazing. Very honest, professional and caring. He has helped us so much with our dogs behavior problems. Still a work in progress but Paul continues to check in with us, gives us feedback and suggestions and supports us in any way he can. Paul and K9city have been a lifesaver for our family and our dog, we can not thank him enough!!
I was super nervous about trusting anyone with my pup. Kristen put my nerves at ease. She’s so knowledgeable about animal behavior I found myself wanting to hire her to train Penny, not just walk her. Can’t say enough good things. Dog Wild is the best. Can’t rexommend enough.
Melissa has been here twice already, and our Rottweiler puppy has really improved a lot. I would highly recommend her to train anyone's puppy/dog She is still working with us
The trainers at CST really know their stuff! Helped me see the mistakes I was making and suddenly the DOG's behavior was loads better. Positive, effective affordable. 5-stars!
I travel a lot for work and a family friend referred me to Ashley. She watches my french bulldog for a about a week out of every month and I highly recommend Ashley as a pet and child sitter. She is very responsible, always on time, and makes my days stress free. She is the most reliable sitter I've had yet and has a great bond with animals!
