We worked Eric on training our 2 years old adopted mutt. She is a high energy large size dog with a puppy mentality. Before, walking or playing with her was a chore since it would take more than an hour to drain her energy. We had dog training classes at pet store but it only somewhat worked when we have treat in our hand. Eric provided us with more structure activities which include walking with backpack, sit-stay and leave it routine. He doesnt use treat which we found worked better for us. Eric also provided guidance to become B pack leader which helps us tremendously. With training cater toward specific requests and concern areas; Our dog is becoming more and more calm and obedience. The pricing is very reasonable, and he always willing to answer questions outside the session. Eric is very patient and observance, we would recommend him to anyone.
My dog Lilly and I started in September with Dion. Each class was a learning experience. I am very pleased to say Lilly (golden-doodle) is a well mannered dog on leash and when people come over. Its a commitment for you and the dog. Real time training (park setting) is great as you and the dog experience the squirrels, other dogs, people and the every day sounds. As the issue of either the owner or the dog or both (LOL) arose Dion would correct you/dog. Dion is very accommodating. I reviewed all the dog trainers I could find. And am So pleased to have been able to choose the Right trainer for us. We can walk without issue. When Lilly wants to act up I (the leader) now know what I need to do. Thanks Dion for your dedication to better living of dog and human.
Megan is easy to work with and is easy to understand what you need to do to assist with training a dog with positive reinforcements.
Teresa is such an awesome trainer to work with. She has a deep understanding of how to help you understand your dog so you can be successful at training your dog. She's very professional. I appreciate that she only uses positive tactics and is so patient! I highly recommend her and will continue to learn as much as I can from her.
Chris knows his stuff! If you need help with training your dog he's the one to go to! We had our pup stay with Chris and when he came back to our house he was a model dog! It was pretty amazing that what Chris taught him didn't go away when he left Chris' home - it stuck with our pup back at our house. We definitely recommend Chris!
Training my dog is still a work in progress, however my experience with Claire and Backcounty Buddies has been amazing. My dog is terrible. Terrible. Never once did I feel like I'd done something wrong by being the owner of a true monster dog. Everything feels like it's do-able!
This place is the absolute best they really care for the dogs they are training. This class just has the basic training for what every dog needs to learn to be obedient. I will defiantly be continuing classes with Noble Beast Dog Training.
It is with great delight that I write this review for Maureen Stevens of Bee a Good Dog. Maureen worked with my service dog, Dr. Seuss and I for almost twelve months. During that time, she demonstrated outstanding abilities as a dog trainer, as well as displaying a lasting commitment to her role as a volunteer dog trainer for an organization that assists individuals training their own service dogs. Maureens work is of the highest quality; her devotion to the human-animal bond is unwavering, and she values expanding her skills and on-going self-development. Her non-aggressive, positive, motivational training techniques and her skill and patience helped Dr. Seuss master his loose leash walking, impulse control, curtail his socializing in public and interaction with other dogs. He loved working with Maureen and would always be excited to see her on Sundays for training. The skills I learned as a service dog handler are invaluable to me. Dr. Seuss and I are a confidant service dog team in public because of the training we received working with Maureen. I highly recommend Bee a Good Dog and Maureen Stevens to anyone who wants a positive training experience and a truly wonderful bond with their dog.
Alex has a philosophy of dog training/leadership that goes so far beyond and so much deeper than anything I had heard in the past from dog training classes. In just a couple of private sessions, I have learned more from him about my dog and myself than I did in 6 weeks of puppy training classes. Alex understands dogs AND people, and this makes him a great trainer.
Nora was very helpful and gave me very good suggestions on how to keep our dogs on track with their potty training. I would definitely recommend Best Dog Ltd.
Jane Skarka has been my neighbor for many years during which she has cared for and rescued numerous animals. Caring for dogs and cats is the central passion of her life. My need for pet care emerged during the past year and I never even considered anyone other than Jane. She is loving, trustworthy and reliable. My standard poodle, Kobey, goes berserk with joy when she comes to get him for trips to the dog park or day care. (I'm a bit jealous.) Jane has managed to transform Kobey from a cat chaser to a cat lover and gives me great advice on pet care and training tips. She is much more to my dog than a petsitter, I consider her to be his "goddess mother" and wholeheartedly endorse her services.
Jennifer helped us have a dog that we can take everywhere. We started classes with her when our dog was a puppy and just continue to take classes as we love her style of teaching. Her group classes are wonderful as they allow us to work with distracting environments and be around other dogs. You can tell she LOVES her job and wants what is best for you and your dog. She is always happy to stay late and answer your specific questions too! I would highly recommend her to anyone with any age dog as she has a gift for working with dogs.
Matt did an incredible job training our dog Lucy. I worked every week with her and trained her at her pace instead of trying to rush her. I really appreciated his care and understanding of our dogs feelings. He was very flexible with the classes which was great for our schedules. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to obedience train their dog.
We had a great experience working with Rod. We've experienced the pet store training classes, and compaired to Rod's classes the pet store classes are a waste of money, in my opinion. Rod helped us work through and manage our 120 lb Mastiff's dog agression issues. I think every family with dogs can benefit from a good trainer. Rod helps teach you how to work with your dog, on a case by case basis.
I have utilized Sit.Stay.Fetch for dog walking as well as dog training. I have found the dog training amazing! The training style was exactly what I was looking for. It has helped myself and my dogs reach some great goals. As for the dog walking, I know they are in great hands and I have total piece of mind while at work. Sit.Stay.Fetch! also has flexible walking and training times which are invaluable to me!
Its been a great overall experience with Waggin' Tail Dog Training. He has taught me to be more confident with my dog and that was led her to respect me as her leader. I used to dread our morning walks now I look forward to our morning bonding time. I would recommend him to anybody. Waggin' Tail Dog training has surpassed all expectations I had.
Andi's basic obedience class was great. Our dog loved her and learned a lot. We feel that after the class we now have the knowledge to continue working and perfecting our dog's skills. Definitely recommend Andi's class.
Collen was great! Very knowledgable and willing to listen to our needs with our dog. Always was willing to research additional information if she did not have an answer. Definitely would recommend Paw School for any level of obedience or training.
I have taken several dog training classes with Helena. She is a terrific trainer, both of dogs and of their humans. She has a good rapport with animals and a gentle, patient approach. I would highly recommend her to work with your beloved pets.
