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.
We have 3 puppies under a year old, and they needed to learn some manners! So after reviewing plenty of dog trainers in the area, I decided Rachael seemed like the best option for our needs! She spent 3 hours at our first session (we were only having the oldest 2 evulated; however, she still spent time with the little one!) the dogs in one hour of her being there were already amazing me!! I couldn't believe they were my dogs! She's been very accommodating to our busy schedules, and is always available when needed! I highly recommend Rachael for all your dog training needs. She has made my 3 puppies well mannered!!
Great job training my German Shepherd. He does basic obedience or he will step it up a notch if you so desire. My shepherd is very well behaved and does great socially!!
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.
Gavin is awesome, he trains somewhat similar to the first couple trainers I found thirty years ago, but with new techiques too.Can't wait for more training
Nora and Nancy are awesome! I've not yet met their other trainer, Lisa, but I've heard great things about her. My BC puppy and I have attended Beginner, Intermediate Obedience and Intro to Agility classes. We have had so much fun and learned a bunch. Also, I've picked up many techniques to work on outside of class. These are great folks who use positive training methods which I feel are critical for a Border Collie's temperment. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is due to the small interior training area (which can be both good and not so good) but is controlled by smaller class sizes. Luckily, sections of the class can move outdoors as needed. I have been extremely happy with the the instruction for both myself and my Border Collie. Two thumbs up! :-)
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.
Barb has looked after my 5 year old Puggle for about 3 or 4 years now with periodic needs my husband and I have. Barb will take care of Charlie when we go on weekend trips or vacation, she will also come over to let him out and feed him when both my husband and I have long work days. There are times that Barb will come to our house to take care of him and times that Charlie has gone to her house as well for our longer trips. She has always been reliable and trustworthy. And it helps that Charlie LOVES her. He hardly misses us when we are gone. We continue to utilize Barb and her services and have recommended her to many friends and family as well. -Vanessa
I contacted Lea to help with training my one year old Newfoundland, Indy. Indy is a reactive dog and is nervous around strangers, often times barking when they get too close or approach him inappropriately. For her first training session with Indy she came to the home. She was not intimidated by his size or his very intimidating bark. It didn't take more then 15-20 mins for Indy to begin feeling comfortable and to start interacting with Lea. By the end of our first session he was already leaning up against her leg and had accepted her as a friend. She offers very affordable prices compared to other trainers and has a very flexible schedule. Most importantly Lea seems to genuinely care about the animal she is training and has a unique ability to understand and work with dogs. I would highly recommend her for any problem you may be having. She has definitely helped me with Indy. I would call her again for any problem I was having without hesitation.
Kat was extremely professional and helped take my dog aggressive shepherd to someone I can feel comfortable taking anywhere I want to now. She worked closely with us and continued to monitor progress throughout the whole process.
Karena and her staff are so sweet! She gave my bunny special attention even though they don't usually board bunny she set up a special room for him and he got to hop around the office when the dogs were out. Just like home:)
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!
Carie was truly wonderful! She immediately comforted me by getting to know my dog before we even met, and I got a great sense that she has a grasp on his social behaviors that needed correcting. She then worked her busy schedule into our busy schedule to come to our house and have a one-on-one training session. She tapped into my dogs brain and could see what was troubling him within the first session, and gave us easy tools to keep up his training with. The next day we were already seeing improvement in his behavior. We will be sure to have her back out for some fine tuning. Her prices are also very affordable for the services she offers. She really is miracle worker! Thank you, Carie!
