Denise has been amazing. Not only is she training our dog, but also teaching her owners the proper way to interact with the dog to get appropriate responses. We’ve had two lessons so far and the change in our dog’s behavior has been incredible! I only wish we had done this sooner!

I don't understand the previous negative review at all. Elaine worked with our 3 large, mixed breed dogs for a total of 3 sessions. Two of the dogs were showing fear-based aggression, which Elaine took the time to explain the signs of their fear and showed how our actions were making matters worse. While it is called dog training, it is really owner education. We now have the tools to manage our dogs in a way that is enjoyable to both us and our dogs. She not only deals with the current behavior, but educates the owner for the future. There has been a tremendous change in our dogs and we look forward to their continued improvement. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Brian has done an excellent job helping us train our dog to be the dog we knew he could be! Since starting training, our dog has improved leash skills and obedience in the home.. we are currently working on improving his obedience in more challenging/distracting environments. We are more comfortable being a leader for our dog, which makes training less frustrating.

Steve did a great job in not only training my dog but training me to understand the reasoning behind everything. He made sure I knew why we did something and how to correct my dog's actions if necessary. Steve was very informative and helpful and made it known he's only a phone call away if I need assistance on something or have a quick question.

Sandy was amazing. My dog is not fond of strangers and before Sandy was leaving she was jumping in her arms and loving her. Her positive training is really working and I saw the difference in my dog within only a few hours. With her price and ability to travel to you there is no one out there that even comes remotely close in terms of a dog trainer. I will be recommending Sandy to EVERYONE that ever asks me about dog training.

I have to say when I got my puppy he was so wild and I knew I needed to hire some help. I went to thumbtack and found Deb and it was the best thing I every did. She knew exactly what we needed to. She is so knowledgeable, great with our dog and also fun to be around. Would definitely recommend hiring Deb to anyone who needs dog training!

Nico did an excellent job with my adopted pitbull rescue. She was always a sweetheart, but coming from an abusive environment and into a new home, she was scared and untrusting of most humans -- especially guests who came to our home. With Nico's help she's now coming out of her shell and is more relaxed around people. The basic training regiment made a very big difference!

It is very difficult leaving my dog and cat when going away, but knowing that Pam is taking care of them relieves me of any anxiety I might have. She is reliable, trustworthy and is a true lover of animals. I know they are in excellent hands and recommend highly Pam for any of your pet needs.

Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.

Heather is very competent. My very large dog was an obnoxious jumper and had to be locked up every time anyone came into the house. She almost knocked some of my friends to the floor with her jumping!! Now I am able to control her and she no longer jumps up on people. Finally I have a dog with good manners! Heather stressed how important it was for me to be motivated to participate in the training of my dog, so I did my homework faithfully in between sessions, and was incredibly consistent, which really paid off. Heather is an excellent trainer and if you're really ready to work along with her you'll have a well mannered and happy dog.

Clare Owings has been working with my 18 year old son and his 8 year old Labrador/boxer, with obedience training. On the first visit, I could tell immediately, she had the perfect personality and patience to help make this a pleasant experience. I found her ad in the local paper, and contacted her, without any prior references. Clare was available the next day, and arrived several minutes early for the first lesson (And each one since). She charges a reasonable fee , considering she provides more than just dog training. She has a genuine interest in my son and his future. They talk extensively about anything and everything...high school, college, life. Clare comes to the house for lessons and has also met at a nearby park.....wherever is convenient for my son. I highly recommend Clare Owings! We are fortunate (in many ways) to have found her!

Matt trained me and my 6 month old German Shepard. He is a wonderful trainer. Very patient and knowledgable. He explained and demonstrated each step during our 8 sessions with him, very focused. He made me and my dog a great successful team. I am comfortable to take Lacey anywhere. Would recommend Matt for any dog training. You can not get a better trainer that Matt.

Nelson is the most skilled and productive dog trainer I have ever met. The other 3 trainers I took my 2 Aussies to couldn’t handle them but Nelson handled them very well. He knows which training each of my dogs need so I am very content with his service. I definately recommand Riedel k9 if your dog needs training.

Nicole at Bucks Dog Training has shown me that you really can teach huskies to be off the leash and not run. It has allowed me to have freedom. My 2 huskies enjoy their freedom off the leash running while I walk behind them. Nicole not only is a professional she has also become a friend. My pups look forward to going to see her and boarding with her. She is professional, attentitive and has a huge love for animals. If you want great results, Bucks Dog Training is the place to go. You will not be disappointed.

First Class Wags is a first class company! The owner, Robin, is on the ball with replying to requests for service. She and her staff are very accommodating, and very professional. My dogs look forward to their dogwalker spending time with them, and they are a lot happier. Neighbors have remarked how happy my dogs are when they are out with their dogwalker. And, if the dog is happy, the mom is happy!

Ryker LOVES Mark. I've seen such a huge improvement pertaining to many of Ryker's behavioral issues since we started working with Mark and am looking forward to seeing many more. I'd previously done a bit of training with Ryker, but never got these types of results. Extremely happy with his service and would recommend 100%!!!!

Nicole is awesome. She knows what she is doing and will make sure your dog is trained properly. We have used other trainers in the past and non compare to Nicole and what she does. If you want a great trainer Nicole is the one.

We hired Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward
