Excellent, Robin is a great dog trainer. I can see the difference in my puppy only after 2 trainings!
I needed help to modify my over excitable champion boxer, CH high tech Duffy Semper Fi at Marlboro. Trainer Displayed great concern and caring while training my dog. Trainer has great abilities to analyze the dog behaviors. Wholly recommend for anyone who needs help with an overzealous dog.
Andrew has been great to work with. He has excellent attention to detail, and followed up on all my questions and concerns. He uses a very positive approach, which is very effective. Andrew is a very talented dog trainer, and I highly recommend him.
For the first day my son and myself learned a lot about our 2 dogs, was easy, and the trainer was well prepared to teach the dogs and both of us a lot of good stuff, that we can use for life with our dogs Thank You :)
Joyce is fantastic!! My husband and I had a three-month old wheaten terrier puppy when we hired Joyce. We were looking for help with potty training, basic obedience, leashing walking and helping our little guy become a part of our family. We cannot say enough positive things about what Joyce and her training methods have done for us. Our puppy was at ease immediately with Joyce and loves his training sessions. He has come leaps and bounds in his training using her easy to follow methods and improves after every session. After a few short months, he follows commands, is almost house broken and actually listens to us now! Joyce is professional, flexible with scheduling, kind, and very affectionate with our puppy. It's obvious how much she is a natural with animals. We also use Joyce for boarding when traveling. We are confident that our puppy is in safe, capable and loving hands when he spends time at Joyce's house with her (and Corcega!). She'll even send photos, videos and multiple daily calls and texts with updates for you, the individual service she provides for your pup is so much better than doggie daycare. If you are looking for a dog trainer, dog walker or a happy place for your dog when you're away on vacation, we highly recommend Joyce and her services to any dog owner.
We have tried many dog trainers with many different techniques over the 35 years of having dogs. None came anywhere close to the effectiveness of Rick's handling of our golden doodle. We were on the verge of giving our dog away when we first met Rick. After a reasonable number of sessions, he transformed him into a completely different and oh so delightful pet. And the neat thing about Rick's techniques, our dog showed improvement after the very first session and just continued to get better as we went through the winter. Rick truly worked magic.
When I found Christine on Thumbtack, I was at the end of my rope. My boyfriend and I had adopted a 1 year old American bulldog mix from a rescue in NY and were having trouble getting him to listen to us or bond with us, were experiencing a lot of behavioral issues and even some aggression and were considering bringing him back because we felt we were in over our heads. We had reached out to the rescue we adopted him from for help finding a trainer and they kept blowing us off. The rescue claimed to have spent donor money on his training, but all he had really learned was how to get treats and would not even do basic commands like sit or stay if food wasn't in the picture. Finally, in desperation, I googled dog trainers in my area and thumbtack popped up. I filled out a form and within minutes I received a reply from Christine DiCarlo at Canine Communications. I emailed her and she said I could call her any time so I did so immediately. Over the phone she could sense how desperate I felt and she drove an hour to come meet with us. She immediately assessed the situation and explained to me what was going on and how to fix it. We have been working with her for about 6 weeks and both humans and dogs are doing much better and have settled into our new lives. We even adopted another rescue puppy and Christine told me exactly how to introduce the pup to the dog and the home, thus saving us future problems. There have been a couple of desperate phone calls to Christine and every time I'm freaking out, she talks me off the ledge and everything settles back down. Without Christine, I don't think we would have gotten through the rough patches. She has trained me in what to do to have well behaved and secure dogs and in how to read my dogs because before her, I have to admit, I was clueless and an emotional wreck. We are all so lucky to have found her and her services. She really cares about us and our dogs, she knows what she's doing and she has saved my family and my sanity!
First session of dog training. Trainer was prompt, knowledgeable and articulate.
I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!
Very nice, knowledgable, answered all of our questions and then some. Showed us proper techniques in handling and training out dog. Nothing negative to say.
Sue Grey is a terrific trainer of dog, and a great teacher to us human owners as well. She is knowledgable, patient, consistent, and helps in developing a strong bond with your dog. I have found our sessions invaluable, especially for some persistent problems such as keeping the dog from jumping to people as soon as they enter the house, and keeping the dog from dragging me all over the neighborhood. She is very practical, and provides excellent feed-back. Highly recommended.
Debbie was wonderful! She clearly cares very much for dogs and it shows through her work. She’s very knowledgeable, helpful and sweet. We have worked with many different trainers and my pup was the most comfortable around Debbie. That’s the most important to me.
After having my aggressive dog, Bella evaluated by nearly 6 different trainers (actually, the trainers were evaluated by ME) about 11 months later I found exactly what I was looking for in World Canine! Chris Murley is a compassionate and incredibly knowledgeable dog trainer. He not only guides us in learning a bit of dog psychology, but also how we affect our dog with our own actions, both positive and negative. I am excited to move forward and watch as Bella finally transforms into a part of the family under the hand of World Canine. I will definitely refer all my family and friends to Chris if ever the need arises. Thank you, Chris!
the one lesson she gave us was great, she gave us many wonderful pointer, and she never rushed. We loved her as a trainer, but we no longer have our Riely.he was given to a wonderful family with 2 young boys. he was to much of a dog ,who needed a lot of walking to get rid of his pent up engery. we keep in close contact with the family and he is triving, goes on hikes every day with the kids, they send us videos all the time,so it was the best decision,even though we miss him.
Bob is a magical dog trainer. You are totally memorized by just watching him train your dog. You feel safe and comfortable with his training and he always gets the job done. There is no one else compared to his training he makes the impossible happen. He's your man.....
Gina has helped me both with an eight week basic training class for my reactive do. She has also helped me with issues I have had with my dog at home. She is always available for my questions and offers knowledgeable advice. Gina gives positive feedback and encouragement. My dog is a work in progress so I know I will continue to contact her in the future for help and suggestions.
I highly recommend Sarah's Pet Sitting. I have used their services to walk my greyhound and Chinese Cresteds. They are always a pleasure to correspond with and my fur babies and not so fur babies ( hairless dogs) love them. I trust them in my home without reservation. My greyhound is a special needs animal and they are wonderful with him. Most recently I became mom to a beautiful Sphynx cat. My dog did not get along well with our new addition. So I hired their pet trainer to help with the adjustment and they are progressing nicely. Thank you Sarah! Cyndie- Meriden CT
Best dog behavior trainer you will fine, makes your puppy/and owners feel a new understanding of needs and expectations. If you have tried "trainers" please give Em4Dogs a try, you will be amazed with the results.
I train dogs mostly, the regular sit, stay, paw, lay, etc. Im very good at what I do. I am just starting out and am trying to make this a big thing, so support Pet Trainer Pro!
I am a friendly dog sitter and walker, and I will also provide training if interested. I love God, and I'm very trustworthy with your loved one.
I live in Norwich, CT, and I graduated from animal behavior college spring of 2014. I work as an animal control officer, and I also train dogs. I have basic obedience classes and will travel to your home for private lessons for tougher problems.
