Browse these aggressive dog trainers with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in New Britain.
Very comfortable around aggressive dogs. Understand dog language very well. Very nice person and polite. Thank you for your help.
Excellent, Robin is a great dog trainer. I can see the difference in my puppy only after 2 trainings!
Adrienne Mesko is an outstanding dog trainer, and those seven words are an understatement. I have only superb things to say. Adrienne has impeccable training credentials, a lifetime spent around animals, a perfect environment for training dogs inside and outside, and, most of all, a sound, consistent, thoughtful, intelligent and effective approach. And very reasonable rates for the astonishingly good training results. When I looked for a dog trainer on Thumbtack, it was as an almost a last ditch attempt. I'd tried everything with Kai, it seemed: not once, but twice at New Skete, the best in-home trainers for problem dogs that I could find in NYC, consults with excellent vets, Chinese herbs, nutrition changes, working at home every day, every leash/harness/muzzle/collar imaginable, but still he had seriously problematic behaviors: over-protectiveness and resulting aggression that led to lungeing and barking at other dogs and people and even several biting incidents. He's a strong adolescent male GSD, and his pulling on the leash led to dislocated knees and herniated discs. He's a love of a guy, however, and he'd had a difficult first six months (4 homes), and it was worth anything to give him a chance. So I went on my new Thumbtack app (it had worked well for me before) and Adrienne's credentials and skills sounded perfect for what we needed. You can see from the photo below how well he does with other dogs after his "board and train" with Adrienne. He's a dream on a leash. He's well behaved at home, hanging out peacefully on his raised bed "place," no more destructive behaviors to get attention. He listens, pays attention, and stops instantly when told "no," rather than making his own rules. His behaviors now match the smart, affectionate dog he always was on the inside. She's trained his humans to use the training approach she taught him, so all he's learned can come home with him. I will be thanking Adrienne Mesko for the rest of my days! And I'd be happy to talk about her work in person.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
What a great experience!! I hired Wendi for help with obedience training for my unruly Labrador retriever. By the end of our 6 week session he was a different dog. I highly recommend her services!!
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.
Sarah's Pet Sitting as a whole has been totally accommodating to my dogs' needs. All of the dog walkers have tolerated very ill dogs, delays in my returns from visits to my parents in another state, and off shift work schedule. I love the text messages sent that let me know a visit has been completed, and the occasional picture, too! I am very pleased with the care and attention given to the dogs. Sarah will make every attempt possible to meet your needs.
Perfect! Amazing! Above and beyond! Andrea is forever welcome in our home and will be our forever pet sitter! We have three crazy dogs and going on vacation is hard, we don't enjoy kenneling our dogs and having family take all three is a hassle so we decided to try to find a pet sitter and couldn't be happier. We were nervous having a stranger come to our home, especially with one of my dogs being aggressive towards new people and one being only six months old but after meeting Andrea, we knew she could handle it. Andrea responded immediately to all my texts and sent me videos of the dogs and I didn't even ask! She made us feel so comfortable that our home and dogs were taken care of and allowed us to enjoy our vacation. The best part of all when we came home the dogs were tired out and we could all relax before our busy schedules started again. Thank you so much, Andrea!!!!
