Jorge worked with my lab on walking skills as well as behavioral training around other dogs. Seems to be working very well already. Very informed trainer.
Ashley did an outstanding job working with my son Kevin, and his dog Anna. Anna was adopted from a kill shelter and has some trust and aggression issues. Ashley calmly, and quietly came in and secured Anna's trust. She worked diligently with Kevin to help him be able to re-train Anna. Kevin's work schedule had many changes. Ashley went above and beyond in accommodating Kevin to keep the training sessions going. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone who would like some help with dog training. She is also a vet tech which makes it most helpful as some dogs do develop behavior issues that are related to an illness or pain. She noticed an ear infection in Kevin's other dog and helped him get the dog vetted for it. I would definitely hire Ashley again should the need arise for some "Positive Dog Training."
I just wanted to share our experience with Todd and South Orlando Dog Training. We had an incident with our dog Bella- she's terrified of skateboards. Usually we just avoid skateboards all together- but on a walk, a guy came up behind us on a hover board which makes no noise- and cut us off. Bella got scared and bit the guy- not doing major harm... but it easily could've ended very badly. The guy was apologetic and said he should've known better than to come up behind a dog like that. It was at that time that we knew we needed help- we NEVER want to relive that situation again. It's our job to protect her from herself... and we were beside ourselves. We didn't know what to do! We just recently relocated from Los Angeles to Orlando so we really didn't know anyone that could refer us to a dog trainer. I came across a business card from South Orlando Dog at a local coffee shop in Celebration and called to see what could be done. We've been working with Todd now for a few months and I have to say- it has made a HUGE difference. South Orlando Dog Training is all about positive reinforcement. We NEVER thought Bella could break this habit. Todd is so patient and so caring- you can tell he really loves what he does and he truly cares about his clients. I would say we hit the jackpot as far as dog trainers go. If you are even thinking of hiring a trainer for your dog- Todd is the way to go.
Laura trained my not-so-friendly mixed breed through several sessions. I was surprised at the ease my dog learned basic behavior with her. Laura also taught me some new tricks - for training and altering behaviors my dog had already adopted. With continued sessions we learned some fun stuff plus advanced behavior modifications. I was extremely pleased, and after nearly a year, continue to be thrilled with her techniques and vast knowledge of dogs and their innate behaviors. I learned a lot about my dog and how to handle some difficult situations. Will recommend and use Laura for all my dog training and home care when out of town. Allison
Jr. did great work with out dog Tucker! Tucker has always been a "good" dog but had his alpha priorities a little mixed up thinking that he was above me and below my husband. Therefore, he would only ever listen to my husband. He is listening better! We never took walks with him because I had high anxiety about other dogs because he has aggression towards other dogs. Jr. not only brought his dog to a training session to help with the aggression issues but also gave us tools and things to do with other dogs if they approached and helped my anxiety. Last night we went on a walk and when walked out of the house a dog had wiggled loose of his collar and ran up to Tucker. Although, I was not the calmest when this happened he handled it like a champ and showed no aggression toward the other dog and we were able to continue on our walk with no other problems. Two months ago that would have never happened! Thank you for all your help with Tucker! We appreciate him being part of the pack now instead of trying to be the alpha all the time!
I have had dogs all my life, but adopting Maggie Mae became quite a challenge. Traditional dog training did not work. Jill's approach saved Maggie Mae & MM staying with our family. Jill is very dedicated in her training approach, her teachings, & her caring for the dogs & their owners. I would highly recommend ( and have many times) Jill & the dog training service she provides.
Hi my name is Dane and I have had the great pleasure of getting to know and work with Ernie Rivera of Valor K9 for sometime now. I have watched Ernie train his dogs and hold there training to highest of standards. The name" Valor" suits him and the people who work for him simply because of his training methods, techniques, compassion, and caring about what they do. The value they provide for you dog is priceless. Everyone at Valor K9 take a lot pride in what they do there. If you want great results I would definitely give Valor K9 a call.
I have had the opportunity to observe Clara & Barry while training their newest service dog. Sabrina is a beautiful, intelligent puppy and has learned so much already. Clara & Barry train with love & rewards and Sabrina is eager to learn. She already knows lots of commands, like come, stay, down, shake, sit and roll over and she's also learning to go to the door when she wants out. Clara & Barry make a great team and someone will be so lucky to get one of their service dogs Dee O
Highly recommend Curtis. I did just the hour One on One and it helped tremendously to train me how to be the leader that my dog wanted to follow and trusted. Great overall tips on how and what to train and hands on training of my leadership and dog communication skills. I also learned that I had the wrong size and type of pinch collar to get my communication across quickly and simply while my dog was still having fun interacting with me.
I adopted a 7 year old dachshund from Carol one year ago Which she had raised and trained from puppyhood. What a great dog-- gentle, well behaved and good with cats other dogs and people of all ages. I take her everywhere!! Great!! I've seen carol work with other breeds with great success. Dogs love her. Highly recommended.
K9Goddess's training style suited our family. Our new dog needed correction NOW. Cindy's patience with dog and owners gets results. She is firm, but kind. Her positive attitude is encouraging.
We train dogs for a cheap price, so call me if you need great dog training. They call me Jay dog man and I need lots of techniques.

I have trained dogs for 20 years and I have worked as a veterinary assistant and volunteer at an animal rescue farm in Maryland. I have done AKC work and agility training. I have rescued and trained "hard to place" dogs. I don't use physical force, but rather a reward system to get specific appropriate behaviors. A well-trained dog is more secure because he/she knows what is expected. Therefore a well-trained dog is happier and allows for more freedoms.
