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.
Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.
My dog loves Robin! And so do I. Always on time and always staying late! So polite. I was very nervous about starting training with my dog because she is very high-energy and she is already three years old. Robin reassured me that with all of her experience things should go fine and she was right. Taking my dog for a walk has become enjoyable instead of a chore. Huge improvements and such a reasonable price. Thank you Robin!!
Neeve did an excellent job with my dog. We began to see a change in his demeanor almost immediately. She was extremely positive and worked with me to come up with a realistic plan for my dog. We discussed followup visits and training. She worked around my schedule. I highly recommend Neeve and her dog training skills.
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
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.
Sara is phenomenal. My dog is happier, I am happier. She is always available when I need her. As a surgeon, my schedule is often very unpredictable, and having a trustworthy and fantastic person like Sara taking care of my dog makes me breathe a lot easier
I have not completed the dog training yet
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.
Roxanne was wonderful! Brody is doing so much better now after his three week Board and Train! She gave me detailed instructions on how to keep him on a schedule and a bunch of great tips! He learned a lot with Roxanne as his trainer and he is a difficult dog to train. Affectionately known as the "energizer bunny"!! Thank you Roxanne. - Karen E.
Gus has just started walking my dog this week during the day while I'm at work. My dog is shy and within a couple of sessions, he warmed up to Gus and now he wags his tail when he hears him at the door. I am very pleased with Gus' service.
My wife and I had a great experience with Mary at Canine Love Dog Training. Mary was on time, professional and answered all of our questions in detail. She was a pleasure to work with and our Golden Retriever loved her. I would recommend Mary to friends and family so give Mary a call if you would like training or advice.
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.
Gave basic and off leash obedience training to my 130 pound long-haired German Shepherd. Perfect training for a dog that listens better to more intensive training techniques. 10 years later, he still responds to recall, heel, and left or right commands.
Lisa cared for our dog, Fargo, for over 7 years. Fargo recently passed, but Lisa was there through the whole process and beyond. The last few months were difficult; Lisa was so supportive. And we are still and touch, hopefully will have another dog next year. Lisa cared for our dog and was always available when we needed extra walks and weekend getaways. I highly recommend her as a pet was a member of the family.
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!
