We've tried 4 other dog trainers over the past 3 years. Eric was the only one to teach a technique that really works with our stubborn, male Frenchie. Mental exercise is they key to a well behaved dog! We highly recommend Eric!
Carrie Abrams is an excellent dog trainer! We are very pleased and seeing results from the first session. Carrie really knows her stuff.
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.
Better manners dog trainer contacted me immediately and gave me a lot of information on his services and why he thinks they're are value. I will probably hire him to train my dog I'm just working out a time frame
knowledgeable and friendly! I was very satisfied by how they showed a passion in helping my dogs get over the anxiety issues they were exhibiting when I contacted House of Dog Training. Over the phone and in person, they explained everything in an easy and understandable way so I could properly train my dogs towards the proper behavior I wanted.
Teresa is an excellent dog trainer. She has a vast knowledge of all "things" dog...and other animals too!! I would recommend her in a second!
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.
Mike was great! He came and within the first 20 minutes he had our "out-of-control" doing things we didn't think were possible. Loved the fact that he took his time to really learn about our dog. He didn't just run in and run out. Mike gave us the hope we lost. We had hired two previous trainers that only wanted the money. Neither one cared about our dog or aboit us. We know Mike is different. He does genuinely care. We are so excited to work with him. I would highly recommend him and his partner to anyone who needs help with their dogs. They are the real deal!!!! Thanks Mike!!
We adopted Chappy last year thinking that he was just a little on the shy side. But just days after bringing him home he started snapping and growling at visitors, and avoiding us. Thankfully we found Scott. He really took the time to help us understand our dog's behavior and how we could effectively influence it in a positive way. He showed us the little changes we could make to help Chappy feel more comfortable in our home and with strangers. Within weeks his aggression was gone and if you met him today you’d never guess that our happy, playful dog was ever fearful or aggressive. We’d recommend Scott to anyone looking for dog training and can’t imagine where we’d be without his help.
Sean is an attentive and professional dog trainer. Amazing work.
Christine is an incredibly knowledgeable dog trainer who teaches with patience and encouragement. She gets to know the dogs and their owners and gives them the tools they need to work together successfully. She is amazing in group classes and one-on-one, tuning into what each dog and owner needs. If you and your dog want to learn and have fun together, get into one of Christine's classes!
Matt was a great trainer. Our dog is now 100% off leash capable! Matt has done wonders! He also came to us and trained our dog in her enviroment. Matt exceeded all of our expectations!
Andi is not only a great trainer but she goes above and beyond to help clients and their dogs. I really appreciated the thought she put into every class, taking into consideration the individual needs of each dog. She was terrific at answering questions and working through sticking points that came up along the way. She even sent a detailed summary after each session with extra tips and advice on how to keep improving in between sessions - way beyond what I expected from this course. It's clear that Andi really cares about helping people bond with their dogs. Not only is Jenkins much better behaved but we had so much fun together!
I have had the pleasure of working with Lea for years and she's always been beyond excellent with dogs and all animals! She's loving, patient, and has such a strong concern for animal welfare. I feel confident that my dogs are in the best hands and receiving the best care when with her. You can definitely be confident that your pets will truly receive the best, most loving care as she treats them all as if they are her furbabies as well.
Helena was an amazing dog trainer both for our rescue dog Woodrow, and for us. Her training was multi-faceted in that she trained us as much as she trained our dog. Woodrow is a rescue, and we called Helena after he developed a rather nasty biting habit. We were desperate to get help immediately, and unlike other companies in the area, Helena called us back immediately, and like us, took the issue of our aggressive dog very seriously. When other companies believed that it was "just a phase" or that a muzzle or a shock collar would be the best course of action, Helena respectfully disagreed. She proved that aggressive dogs can and will respond well to positive reinforcement and behavior modification through intense but rewarding training techniques. When we "interviewed" Helena, she met us at our house for a 90-minute consultation. She provided us with printed handouts on aggression as well as some initial training techniques to begin. We decided to go with her, which was a life-changing decision for our dog; Woodrow has improved drastically since Helena has worked with him. When we first had Woodrow, he could not be within 20 feet of a stranger without barking or growling, and now, his "bubble" has been greatly reduced. During our 8-weeks with Helena, we worked on a doorbell training routine, practiced how to be around other dogs on walks, learned what to do if a stranger approaches us on a walk, how to manage off-leash dogs, and even how to navigate when someone hugs me (he is protective, too!). She came to our house/nearby park always, which was so important as my husband and I both work full time. She was flexible with our schedules and made herself available based on our availability. Finally, her rates are very manageable and fair. It's easy to see that Helena is not concerned with gouging our paychecks for her noteworthy service--she simply wants to see dogs improve. It's refreshing! With Helena you get a true professional who will put your dog at the forefront of her practice. Without Helena, we were ready to give up on our sweet boy, but now, we have renewed hope that he can he rehabilitated for good. Thanks Helena and Training House Calls for being exactly what we needed to save our dog. Best decision ever :)
My Aussie is a happy, healthy eight year old, but he was always really difficult to take for a walk. He just didn't respond to the leash, no matter the collar or the trainer, and I'd tried several of each. I would come home from what should have been a pleasant walk in tears. Then I found Rick. Now long walks with Rolly are a blessing for us both, and his obedience training has made living with my active guy much easier and more fun. I am sooooo grateful. I've also watched Rick with other dogs. He is a master of his craft. Big, little, tough or timid, he knows how to help them and how to help you, so your bond and time together become more fun and rewarding.
I love dogs and helping people. These are my top two favorite things in a part-time hobby. Sign me up! I've never lived in a house without at least three dogs, sometimes as high as six or seven. So, there isn't much that I can't handle. Why I want to sit? I work for myself from home. I have loads of time on my hands, and I already take care of my dogs. They love it when we have company! Whether I come to your place or they come to mine, your dogs will get the best of care and attention. I may even do some training with them!
I strive on dogs being obedient but tend to lean more towards the owner's willingness to learn. I believe that it is the owner's responsibility to spend time with their animal on a regular basis. Repetition is the key to success.
