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.
Being a first time puppy owner Suzanne taught me many great techniques while working with our puppy. She also gave me great feedback and advice on training our puppy. She showed me that with patience and constant practice our puppy's behavior will get better. Thank you for your knowledge.
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 =)
Niamh met all of our expectations. Her expertise in puppy training helped us understand the behavior of our little puppy and helped us enjoy our little companion. Her interest in us enjoying "Oliver" went beyond her initial visit, as Neeve followed it up with calls and advise on the progress being made. Niamh is an asset to Thumbtack !
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.
The 3 day introductory dog training course designed by Andrew utilizing positive reinforcement training is a must for all first time dog owners. The earlier you call him the better because he will give you all sorts of info to deal with routine issues. Strongly recommend. Also he is always available should issues arise down the road...THANKS
Puppy training. Joyce is a wonderful dog handler and has really helped us.
Sarah is great and super flexible and responsive! I love that she sends text updates when she is with my puppy. I know when he is with her, he is in good hands. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
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
We have not completed our puppy training yet but so far all is going well. Josh connected with my puppy right away as if she knew him already and responded to his reward-based training technique right away. He also gave us a lot of information on how to care for our puppy.
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.
Great experience! We got some great tips on training our puppies. Also got post visit text to see how we were getting on with the training.
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.
Bone-afide Dog Training is fun, results oriented and my favorite hour of the week! Sue is an outstanding and patient trainer and Patch and I have both learned a lot.
I worked with Chris when he was just starting. I have a female Rottweiler mix who was very dog aggressive and I was trying to rescue another dog. I had my dog for 7 years before I was able to have her around another dog. I thought it was impossible. I was very nervous after breaking up multiple dog fights with her and getting bitten once. Chris gave me the tools to be in control of my dog. He made me confident and made it fun. Training with my dog was something I looked forward to and was proud of. I saw progress every week. We now have not only adopted another dog, we have adopted 3 more! My dog that I started with assists me in training the new guys. She is confident and content and has a completely new attitude. Chris completely changed how I interacted with my dog. Thank you so much!
Wouldn’t go to anyone else for help with my pup!
Great training, small class a lot of interaction. Facility nice. Would use again and recommend to others. Always available for questions.
My name is Curran Kenny, and I have been around dogs my whole life, from small shi zhus to German shepherds. I know everyone, dog and owner, has their needs, that's why I have multiple approaches from teaching your children how to behave around the dog and how your dog should behave around the children. Is it impossible to walk your dog without him pulling you everywhere? I can fix that! From training your dog in obedience or removing a fetish to just getting the dog out for a walk, I am here to help your dogs live a better life. With the right communication and enough patience, we can accomplish anything.
