Corinn is fantastic! She identified issues and came up with solutions right away. She understands the breed and how to speak their language. She’s also there to answer questions when new issues crop up (such is the nature of puppies) I highly recommend her services to anyone seeking effective yet affordable help with training their dog.
Robin has been great to work with while training my puppy! She does an amazing job of teaching you how to properly train your puppy or dog and will give you guidance all along the way! She always makes herself available for questions about your training when you get frustrated or lost in your training. She comes right to your house for training and will usually stay a bit longer if she has the time available =)
I have had an excellent experience working with Adrienne Mesko. She provided a 4 week board and train session for my 2 yr old, 85lb. Terrier-mix, Winny. She was immediately responsive to all my inquiries from my initial contact, throughout training and after training was completed. She clearly laid out a plan for my dog's training. She was professional, clear and courteous in all business matters. Adrienne is a top notch dog trainer. She took on the daunting task of working with my difficult dog with confidence and understanding. She provided the level of training that she promised in the amount of time she estimated. She gave regular updates and progress reports. I am thrilled with my dog's progress and behavior. After the training was completed Adrienne spent time with me answering my questions, demonstrating equipment use and worked with me and Winny to transfer the knowledge of methods that worked so effectively with my dog. Due to her efforts I now have a dog who is well behaved and responsive. In addition, Adrienne is a kind and considerate person who took the time to listen and help. She is terrific to work with and I highly recommend her board and train program and off-leash training.
Puppy training. Joyce is a wonderful dog handler and has really helped us.
I began working with Rick about a month ago to assist with my 18-month old pitbull, Petunia. Petunia had become aggressive to strangers (e.g., lunging, barking aggressively) when out in public and in the home and I was very much beside myself with how to address the behaviors. We had attempted obedience training at the pet store which did not correct the problem and she continued to worsen. People were afraid of my little pitty and I was developing a sense of hopelessness and resignation where I no longer even wanted to take her for walks and just figured we would have to live a limited lifestyle with her. As a last ditch effort to address Petunia's aggression, I had a consultation with Rick. He took an hour to meet with us to evaluate her. Petunia aggressively barked and lunged the whole time at Rick, but he thought she could be helped and we signed on for the ride. What a journey it has been. In less than a month, I have a restored sense of hope that Petunia can reach her full potential as a wonderful pet. With several training sessions and several trips to stay with Rick, Petunia is now heeling, is much more under control, is not barking aggressively or lunging on walks, and appears more calm and mellow overall. Rick has also taken much time to continuously meet and/or consult with me and my boyfriend on how to maintain the progress by teaching us how to handle Petunia on our own. We are still in the midst of Petunia's training, but I can see a complete 180 in her and am forever grateful that we made the decision to work with Rick. I highly recommend him without hesitation.
Christine rode to the rescue and has transformed our 8 mo old golden from naughty to nice and gives just the right training to both the pup and human sides of the relationship. Thanks SO much. Jack, Karen and Greg
First session of dog training. Trainer was prompt, knowledgeable and articulate.
Meghan--Thank you so much for all of the pet sitting and training. Georgie is a new dog, and we are better pet parents! You are fantastic, and we are so grateful. We look forward to having you back soon.
We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.
Sue is doing a fantastic job with Jackson. The daily updates and videos showing his progress let us know that we made the right decision in selecting Bone-afide Dog Training.
The most important lesson that I learned while training my dog at Canine Cadre is communication. Lenny and Mary Ellen of Canine Cadre are excellent in this area. Once the basics were mastered with my dog, I was able to teach my dog to be obedient with hand gestures through Canine Cadre classes. The most important thing to me is Lenny and Mary Ellen has been there throughout the life of my dog. My Carla (Rottweiler) will be 11 years old this October. I highly recommend Canine Cadre.
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.
Our puppy loved him, we loved him, very professional and reliable. Great response for last minute notice. Very caring for dogs and have a lot of patience
Brandi is simply amazing! Whether it be daily walks, socialization, even training and special skills building, she is simply spot on. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Great training, small class a lot of interaction. Facility nice. Would use again and recommend to others. Always available for questions.
