Very happy with the work Dion has done with our new pup. He is responding very well to the methods employed. Dion seem very good at identifying dog personality traits and how best to go about getting results. He is very direct and to the point which we see very much as a positive in this sort of job. Would highly recommend his services. The training is more expensive than other options out there, but after multiple conversations with other trainers, he seemed like the best fit for our needs. Other trainers interviewed told us many of the behaviors our dog was exhibiting may not be trainable. Dion was up to the task and has done an excellent job.

Pete was a life saver. He taught us the techniques we needed to change our dog's behavior. We went from chaos to calm and began to enjoy our new puppy. Pete always listened to our concerns and provide guidance. Having the training in our house allowed us to work with our dog in her environment.

We learned a lot from Teresa! She helped us with techniques for our 1.5 yr old dog's fear/aggression towards strangers and leash reactivity. We were given great tools during our 3 months of training to continue improving in the future. Teresa is very knowledgeable about animal behavior and a professional that we would certainly recommend.

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.

Kay is amazing. Our Border Collie started learning on day one. She clearly understands how different animals respond to different situations, motivations, etc. We could not be more happy with our experience.

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.

Lance has an extensive knowledge on dog behavior and it shows in every aspect of his training. He was able to help us train our puppy to do basic things such as sit and stay, leave it, and even ring a doorbell to go outside to potty. Lance is able to adapt his training based on the response of the dog and our needs/requests. I HIGHLY recommend Lance. You won't be disappointed!

Alison has taken my dog Pig for 60-minute walks several times. Long walks really help burn up Pig's excess energy and help her sleep better. Alison is reliable and responsible and I can tell how much she loves Pig!

Patricia helped me out immensely during a very hard time in my life. My mother had been admitted into the hospital for an extended period of time leaving her 3 cats and large dog alone. As I was busy with work, it make it impossible for me to care for them properly. Thank God for Patricia who'd been highly recommended by a friend. She arrived promptly and took charge of the situation leaving me with the peace of mind I needed to see to my mother's health. Patricia went out of her way to only care for the animals but also spent quality time with them, playing and just hanging with them. She made sure the pets were well fed and that they never felt abandoned or lonely. Patricia was a life saver and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, warm assistant no matter the calling.

Our Thumtack contact was a very knowledgeable and confident trainer names Andi Nault. She was not dissuaded by my very active Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves people and any dog withing eye view. She worked patiently with us, gave us some new tools to use with Penny and lots of encouragement. She offered doggy daycare which I thought might be useful and it was. Penny learned to read the cues of the other dogs that didn't want to roughhouse. Andi was very good with Penny, consistent, confident, reassuring and had other options to offer us if we wanted them but no pressure. She recommended Boarding facilities we had no knowledge of, other trainers, behavioral specialists, hour long dogie play time, etc. I highly recommend Andi Nault for whatever dog behavior you want to address.

Victoria with Furever Behavior Dog Training is a wonderful trainer. Our dog was a rescue who had lived on the streets and he had many issues. Our dog guarded his food and toys, did not know basic obedience or manners, was not housebroken, did not know to come when called, did not know how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm off, did not know about or like his crate and more. After working with Victoria, we learned how to give our dog the cues he needed to get the behaviors we all wanted. He quickly learned to love his crate as his safe and special place, housebreaking was rapid and our dog learned to trust us. Victoria gave us the tools and skills we needed to be good dog owners and our dog responded positively and swiftly to Victoria's techniques. And, speaking of positive, Victoria only uses positive training methods -- no punishment. And our dog loved, loved, loved Victoria. Well done!
