Would recommend Eric to anyone that needs dog training. We have a German Shepherd mix, and she would pull on the leash and wouldn't ever stop or if she saw anyone on the walk she would continuously bark. We have got her to walking next to us without tugging/pulling and will stop and sit when we tell her. Also she will "leave it" when it comes to people walking by/ next to her. We are still working on getting her socialized with other Dog's, but I can see such an improvement in her behavior. We never thought it was possible to enjoy walks as a family, but Eric gave us the right tools/ pointers to make sure we can consistently make each walk that much better. Eric was always available for questions. Want to thank Eric for all his help with Emma!
Dion is a very talented trainer. He helped us understand our German Shepherd’s needs, boundaries, and expectations. We now have the most well behaved dog in the neighborhood!! Kids feel safe around Aspen and friends with dogs all asked for Dion’s contact.
Working with my German shepherd on aggressive behavior
Chris helped us work with our 3 year old Australian Shepherd who we felt had become aggressive and unmanageable after being attacked by another dog. Our dog had previously been through 3 other training programs with other trainers that did not seem to be as effective as we needed them to be. Chris is a thoughtful and dedicated trainer. He does not sugar coat things and make unrealistic promises. While working with our misbehaving pooch, he explained that without our dedication to correct bad behavior, the dog would not succeed. Training a dog is not something you do for awhile, it's a forever process, and Chris helped us understand that and be successful. He used smart techniques and explained what our behavior was relaying to our dog. He helped us take control of tough situations and also helped us understand why some situations would continue to be challenging, but would get better. Ultimately, Chris cares deeply for the dogs he works with, and it comes though in all of his interactions. We loved the time we were able to spend working with Chris and would recommend him to anyone interested in a quality 1:1 experience.
Sarah did an amazing job with my two german shepherds. They came out squeeky clean with a bath, brush, nail trim and undercoat brush. She was great with their nervous behavior too. Her service was premium! Her prices are premium as well, in my opinion. Be sure to get a quote before you schedule.
Joey is wonderful with our 10 month old, very enthusiastic German Shepherd puppy. We have only had two sessions, and she is already more composed, and listening better. I never realized that it really was OUR fault that she wasn't behaving; Joey taught her and taught us how to continue. I look forward to many more sessions with Joey and now feel confident that our dog has limitless potential.
Bill is great with our German Shepard. Our family rescued her and is teaching us how to manage her and get rid of some of her bad habits. He is very knowledgeable about dogs and knows how to take command of our dog. We still need more training and Bill is coming weekly to help us. Thanks Bill.
Amelia is AWESOME! She came to my home and assessed my totally anxiety prone German Shepherd in his own environment. It was a tremendous help to have Amelia's insights about how his environment might be nurturing along some of his bad behaviors. After only a couple of training sessions, I had some great tools and tips to work with and was able to modify most of my crazy boy's bad habits. We still have some work to do, but I rely on Amelia to lend her expertise and caring approach to help!
Spencer's enthusiasm for animals shines through in his excellent service. Spencer stayed with and cared for my German Shepherd, Shep, for many days, and was attentive to his needs, and took him on multiple hikes in the area. I would recommend Spencer to anyone who is looking for a dedicated companion to your dog or pet while you are out of town.
I have only had the first session with Ray from KoruK9, but I am happy to say that already our daily walk is hugely improved. I have a rescue German Shepherd and I am looking forward to my next sessions to see where we get - I am encouraged!
Shaina with Rescued Rover is a truly top-notch trainer. She is fluent in so many methods and can really customize the dog training to your needs. She is a constant resource for great advice and you can tell she takes her education and helping her clients seriously. She puts her money where her mouth is and has raised a working-line, titled German Shepherd from a puppy herself. There is nobody I would trust more!
