We were looking for a trainer for our 7 month old puppy for behavior training. We had one visit so far and were very happy with the information we learned. I would recommend coexisting canine training..
My dog and I have had 2 sessions so far with Suzanne and I’d say we’re seeing a massive improvement. Suzanne is helping my puppy and I with the basics and beyond and we are slowly integrating all the elements together. What I like is that it’s not a “class” but more she met me in my home to assess and now we are working outside. We’re doing the training outside and socializing my puppy with real life “distractions” and other dogs. So far I’m very pleased. The tips she gives are things that I can incorporate once she leaves and I feel good about it. Most importantly my little puppy is learning and seems more relaxed!!!
Used 2nd of 7 training dog sessions. Excellant experiance. Profressional trainer, looking for great results. Would recommend to all. Brad Worzella
Adrienne is a dedicated trainer who puts the dogs needs first. An excellent problem solver, using fair and consistent methods. I have personally had great results leaving a sport dog in her care for a board and train. My dog received the structured work she needed. I would not hesitate using this trainer in the future. I highly recommend using Adrienne for any training your dog needs.
Andrew came to work initially with my 2 dogs,doing training at the house and s local park. He spent time asking questions so as to truly understand what I hoped to get out of the sessions. When an unforeseen problem arose concerning the interaction between one of my dogs and my sisters new puppy,even though he was on holiday in America he researched the problem consultanting other trainers and vets before skyping me for an hour to help talk through management techniques. Defiantly goes the extra mile would highly recommend him.
My 9 month old Husky has been a crazy, ball of energy since I got him and he had absolutely no listening skills. Koda has been trained by Kelly since he was 4 months old and he has improved drastically! He used to be so crazy that I even thought I may have to get rid of him because he was too much for my grandpa to handle and now I couldn't picture my life without him! He is much easier to handle and I have Kelly to thank for that! Now I am going to keep enstilling the lessons Kelly taught me for Koda and prepare him for his next step which is when he turns 1 he will do his last training class and take the service dog exam. I wouldn't of ever thought Koda would come this far.
Joyce works great with my female Rottweiler. When I hired her my pup had previous training of basic commands, and was well behaved. Joyce enabled me to have more control of my dog, and she is now able to go out with me without a leash. With her style of dog training it gave me a deeper bond with my dog. In addition, it has given me peace of mind that my dog will listen to the commands that I am giving her. I would recommend Joyce to any dog owner regardless of what needs they may have. I have recommended Joyce to my girlfriend and they have just started training her Shiba Inu! It has been such a great time working with her. Every training session she sends out a recap of the training so you don't miss a beat.
Honestly don't know what I would have done without his training; he's help shape my dog into a model citizen!
Christine aka "the new dog whisperer" not only taught me how to train my dog she took the time to get to know me. She was spot on with dog training and behavioral issues. She helped me become "the leader of the pack" using dog-friendly, techniques (NO SHOCK COLLAR, OR HARSH METHODS EVER!!!). Her goal was for my dog to love and respect me not fear me . She will work with you in your home addressing issues such as housebreaking, separation anxiety, aggression, jumping up, puppy nipping, walking on leash, and much more. Christine can help you with ANY BREED, ANY AGE, ANY ISSUE! Christine was available to help work around my hectic schedule and allowed time for the whole family to be involved. Before Christine trained Roxy our "French Mastiff" Roxy was jumping up on our company , barking non-stop , pulling on the leash to the point we could not walk her without our arms being pulled outta our sockets, begging for food and not listening to her commands such as sit , stay and come . With just a few shorts weeks Roxy was and is a changed dog . She is gentle , never jumps up on people or furniture . Our Roxy couldn't have made this transition without the training of Christine!
First session of dog training. Trainer was prompt, knowledgeable and articulate.
Josh is an amazing trainer and very dedicated. He was able to try many different methods of training when one didn't work for our dog.
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.
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.
My ten months old puppy needed some serious training that was beyond me. Sue came to the rescue - just in time, I might add. Lacey, a Flat Coated Retriever/Border Collie mix loved to jump on people and herd/nip me when outside in the yard. She was a quick study and mastered Sue's commands very quickly. A year later she still listens to those commands and now I have no problems when people visit my house or when I am working outside. Thank you, Sue!
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.
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!!
Gina is an excellent Trainer and teacher , Patient , Compassionate and has a passion for helping. Goes out of her way to assist and help. To sum it up EXCELLENT !!!!!!!
