In one session, Corrine was able to provide me with a great foundation to train our 9 week old shepherd. She is super knowledgeable and loves what she does. Will definitely use her again in the near future for follow up sessions!
I purchased my German Shepherd from Robin last fall and he has honestly been such an amazing dog (not to mention gorgeous coat). She worked with him prior to me picking him up and he was virtually house broken already and only had a couple accidents in the house (less than 5). She had also worked with me one on one with training both Moose and myself how to respond to certain issues and how to train his commands. I definitely recommend Robin for her dog training skills and think she does a wonder job and is very experienced especially with GS dogs.
Best investment ever ! Dakota is like a new puppy she respects us and we know how to handle her now Adrienne is an excellent trainer and we are thrilled to have found her We invested in the three-week board and train and since that time we feel that we have so much better control of our German Shepherd puppy and Adrienne is always available for follow-up questions Dakota is now eight months old and she was six months old when she attended the board and train. We have decided to send Dakota for boarding when we go away so she can have additional reinforcement because she is doing so well. She used to be so hyper and excited all the time and she was always very good-natured but now she is under control and in the house is very calm and she respects authority We no longer have issues with her counter surfing or going to places in the house where we don't want her. We both highly recommend Adriennes board and train program it's worth the investment in your dog we now have a very loving calm puppy and our house
Joyce is really dedicated to her job. She travels about 45 mins to our home to train our German Shepherd puppy. She has taught me and my husband how to properly train our dog, and it is incredible how much we actually learned from Joyce. The difference that we see in our puppy is enormous! Our puppy is getting better each week! I highly recommend Joyce as a trainer!
Michele is very knowledgable about training puppies. She came to the house and taught us how to train the puppy . Now it's up to us to use what we have learned she is always available for questions which is great-
I have known Alyssa for over five years I have two German Shepard with different personalities and Alyssa worked with both of them. She can work with any type of canine. She has a way about her that the canines just perform and listen to her. She is very good at what she does and lastly she cares about the animals it is not just a job to her she truly enjoys working with the canines.
Jim Helems helped us with a very difficult, but beloved, hound-shepherd mix. He understood Bodhi and was able to reach him when others couldn't. Jim is an excellent trainer because he can think outside-the-box when traditional methods fail. He is always gentle and kind. Jim understands that most of us aren't professional dog trainers and need guidance on how to manage challenging dogs in our homes. Jim brings out the best in every dog (and human) he works with.
I have known mary ellen and lenny paquette for 8 years since my german shepherd nico was a puppy. He had behavior problems and i was very frightened. We had been asked to leave another training facility. Mary Ellen worked primarily with both of us and did an awesome job. We did socialization obedience and tracking. Nico is a very happy 8 yr old german shepherd. When nico was 4 we lost our 10 yr old female and got another female gs. Her name is brie and she has been working with mary ellen and lenny since a small puppy. They are wonderful professionally and wonderful people.i am so grateful they are in my life and my german shepherds.I
Absolutely Amazing trainers and training! My shepherd was out of control and I was at my wits end trying to figure out what to do. I researched Off Leash K9 Training and found that they were just what I needed. I can't believe the transformation my girl has made! She's still as goofy and fun loving as she was but now she's obedient and will listen when it's time to relax!
My wife and I highly recommend stone hill kennel's training program for any dog, but for high drive, dominant or troubled dogs their 6 week in kennel training program is a must. at first glance it seems expensive, but if you break it down over the years you will have a perfect and obedient dog it is not expensive at all. These guys are professionals in every way.Chris helped us before we even got our german shepherd puppy about the dogs place in our pack when we bring him home.This is the part most people don't understand and end up giving their dog away or worse putting the dog down. His many years of dealing with all kinds of what I call " tough "dogs and the mindset of these dogs is so valuable. He really spent a lot of time with us to make sure we understood how to follow through with the training and how to live with a well balanced dog. His staff are all very professional and make you feel at ease. they really spend as much time as you need with them. We can't finish without saying how much we both think of Dan Hartley, he is just a great guy and a super dog trainer. He is the greatest asset to the kennel. he was so patient with us and never made us feel foolish even though we did. He walked us through every step of training, explaining everything.He has handled all types of dogs, and always figures out the best plan for each dog. We had a very tough and dominant german shepherd and Dan did such a great job with him it was unbelievable. The dog is just so obedient and loves to work. Most importantly my wife and the dog are inseparable. it's a great feeling. I have had 4 german shepherd dogs and none as well behaved as our present dog trained at Stonehill. Overall ,I would say Stonehill kennel is an excellent choice for your dog. Whatever type of dog you have. They have the total package for you. Perry and Diane Simone
I have a 2yr old female German Sheppard named Darla who has some issues greeting people at the door as well as some on leash issues. I contacted Katrina to get some tips and ideas as to how to break her of her habits before they become serious issues. I was more than impressed with her knowledge on dog behavior as well as the simple but effective way she taught me to correct my over enthusiastic, sometimes overly loud, German. It is a work in progress with Darla, however, the tips Katrina shared with me are working better than any advice I have gotten from both friends and long time GSD owners. Thank you for helping me make my dog a more well behaved dog, and thank you even more for helping me become a better dog mom!
As a teacher, I spend every day in the classroom. When it came to getting help training my dog, I couldn't face another classroom so I called Terry at Beyond Borders. I'm so happy I did! She is knowledgeable, patient (with people and dogs alike) and super flexible with schedules. I am happy to recommend her service and experience to others.
Went to K9-1 for help with my German Shepherd - he needed obedience training and help with behavior/aggression issues. Mike's experience and knowledge of dog behavior is extensive, and his training method reflects the fact that he truly cares for the dogs welfare. What I like best about his method is that by using only gentle techniques and always treating your dog with respect and kindness you can teach him what behavior is expected of him. The results are AMAZING. I HIGHLY recommend K9-1 for obedience training and any kind of behavior issues including aggression, it has been a completely positive and educational experience.
Missy and the trainers at Sandy Meadow Farms have been an invaluable resource for us raising our German Shepherd puppy. Their lessons have helped us train our dog in real world situations. We plan on continuing with more advanced classes in the future!
Chloe is a mommas girl and my baby so I hate leaving her anywhere. To ease my anxiety we met dawn ahead of time at her home where Chloe would stay. She was great with her and the home was very dog friendly. When I picked Chloe up after 5 days she was happy and her coat was glowing from dawn taking the extra time to brush her and make her pretty. I will absolutely use dawn again!
Jade is great. She has alot of knowledge and experience training dogs. She is very informative and very pleasant to work with. I am excited knowing that she will be with me every step of the way as I train my new yellow lab puppy.
Jeri went above and beyond taking care of my dogs. Our flight was cancelled and the delayed and she was flexible enough that I was not worried about them. She felt one of my babies was having some separation anxiety and she spent the night so that he would not be alone. I would highly recommend Jeri and will use her again as a dog sitter
I work a lot for a living, so my 3 year old German Shepherd would stay cooped up in the apartment for hours while I was away...I felt bad for my dog because that breed needs a lot of exercise and energy release. So I looked around for someone to at least walk him for an hour a day, and then my friend recommended Asia Foots via Facebook. She is absolutely a wonder! She not only walks the dog, but plays with them! My dog has taken an exceptional liking to her and I would recommend Asia to any one who owns a canine companion. She's wonderful with this job! And she even talks to you about pay that is within a reasonable price range. I still have her walk my dog to this day and I've had her do this for awhile. Thank you again, Asia! :)
