Mr. Kessler educated me on the positive approach to training my puppy. His knowledge of Behavioral therapies and psychology was very informative. At the same time, he had my wild Boston Terrier puppy sitting within the first 20 minute!. I was amazed! He also gave me homework to work on with my pup. Mr Kessler also followed-up to see how I was doing with my training. He was awesome!
We had an amazing experience working with Michele. She is very experienced, professional, and showed up on time. She expresses clear knowledge of training dogs. Her method of training is to not only instill appropriate behavior in a dog, but to ensure that the dog's owners understand the training process and are able to follow through so they can continue to work with the dog without a trainer present. Michele helped our dog, Lulah, work on her growling and barking at houseguests. We highly recommend Michele/Awesome n Pawsome to ever pet owner!
WE Took our Yorkie Puppy to Ron and Melissa when he was 8 weeks old - they took him from our hands and kept him in their home for 18 days. We were really not sure what to expect. We had never had a dog trained before. Ron explained to us that dog training is misunderstood to never use food as a bribe - I was very skeptical but Ron came highly recommended bu a friend who was going to put their dog down until they met Ron so I was willing to give it a shot. His prices were reasonable considering the dog stayed in his home and not a kennel and all followup lessons are included. When we got our puppy back we were shocked!!! Not only did he listen - HE WAS HAPPY!!! We are ever so thankful to them and recommend ANYONE GETTING A PUP TO LOOK UP AZTEC DOG TRAINING AND PUPPY BOOTCAMP - It will be the best investment you will ever make...Thanks again Ron and Melissa
Finally a trainer that knows what he’s doing!!!! I have been to petco training and even hired 3 other trainers to help with my dogs and have had horrible results even having to take my dog to emergency vet with hives because the other trainer stressed him out so bad. Right away I knew this guy was different. He took control and knew what he was seeing. My dogs have responded great and now listen and behave on command without being bribed with treats. I am sooo impressed!!! He is very flexible around your schedule and I wouldn’t recommend any other trainer. This guy knows what he’s doing!
Rayfield and Alpha Dog Academy was excellent. Full of knowledge and patient. He listened to our needs and designed a detailed prescription to help us and our Shepherd. I would highly recommend him!
She literally took our dog who was on the verge of being relocated to another family, into an amazing pet. She has made her calmer, better with kids, and a well behaved dog. Next she is going to tackle training our 4 month old puppy. I would highly recommend her.
You could use the word special to describe Christine's services, but that might not quite cover it. Puppies are fun to care for, dogs in there normal years are most likely predictable, but when the time comes to care for our precious family members in the golden years of their lives or have special needs, it takes a giving and kind person to watch over them. Christine gave special care and her heart to my very special babies, two senior standard poodles. She went above and beyond what is normally required for care. Special feeding, assistance with mobility, extra love. I had piece of mind knowing my dogs were being watched over by Christine. My two very special angels are now gone, but in the future when I have new pups to be cared for, the only person I will seek out is Christine. A little more about Christine . . . she is a delightful professional who is knowledgeable, responsible, dependable . . . all-around terrific. I highly recommend her for caring for your pets and children! You and your pets will enjoy the experience.
Fido's Gym is the BEST and most FUN place for dogs EVER! I literally can't even say the word "gym" anymore around my Boxer Fiona because she starts whining and crying. She absolutely LOVES going to Fido's. Fiona is a white Boxer and she is very active as she's only 1 year old. Since she is white, she cannot be in the sun for more than a few minutes before getting sunburned. Fido's Gym was such a blessing for our family. Not only is the facility indoors and really large (for her to run around in) but it's super clean and there's tons of fun toys (and friends) for her to play with. I've noticed a significant change in her behavior (for the better) since bringing her to Fido's Gym and letting her socialize with other dogs as well as burn some over her Boxer energy off. Heather the owner of Fido's Gym is SO friendly and she's great with placing other dogs with the same temperament as your dog. She's an amazing dog trainer as well as a dog lover and you can tell right away when you meet her. I've met so many nice people (and pups) at Fido's and Fiona and I really look forward to going there each week. If your looking for a fun place to bring your dog, I would highly recommend Fido's Gym.
We have been working with Shelby now for a few months. She has done a great job helping us work with our Australian Shepherd (a two-year old male recent rescue). We have taught him basic commands, how to walk on leash, how to greet people when they come to the house and many other things. As dog owners, Shelby has taught us how to be in charge of our dog and as a result he is much calmer and better behaved. We would describe her style of training as positive reenforcement with mild verbal corrections when appropriate. Shelby has been great to work with and our dog has responded really well to her. Shelby has a lot of great skills and knowledge that she has shared with us. She is also creative and willing to think outside the box when something we try with our dog does not work. The cost is very reasonable and we have seen immediate and continued improvement in our dog's behavior. We highly recommend her.
Excellent follow up, very comfortable with my dog, easy to work with. Amanda is experienced and professional.
Sandi really listens to you & your needs. Then addresses them with positive training. Very knowledgeable!
Brandy is patient with my labs. They are older dogs who were in serious need of training. I had thought all hope was lost but not so! They are following directions, playing well together and I can open my door without a scene. This happened with simple commands and patience. Brandy had to teach US how to be dog parents and lead our dogs. Still a work in progress but we can see positive results. Thank you!!!!!
Michael is very reliable & trustworthy and does a wonderful job taking care of my puppy. I plan to continue using Michael on a regular basis to help take care of Barkley when I'm unable to be home. I'm very happy to have found Michael!
Though new to training as a business of her own she has trained dogs for years. She is knowledgeable, patient and calm a great combination for trading a Portugeese Water Dog. I am looking forward to a well trained dog though our relationship.
I would never go anywhere else for training or boarding. The owner Michelle and her assistants are knowledgeable loving, caring and 100% dedicated to the well being of all the pets in their care.
With many years of experience in owning dogs of many different breeds and sizes, I can give the loving care that other pet owners would want for their pets. I bring positive energy, patience, and joy to the client's pet. The pet owner can expect their instructions to be followed and the pets to be cared for as my own.
I am a private dog trainer, private groomer, and veterinary technician. I will take care of all your furry friends' needs, whatever they may be.
I am training at your home. I work on obedience, special needs, lifetime commitment, problem solving and housebreaking for any age and any breed.
I focus on a variety of services. My philosophy is that no dog is untrainable. From potty training to loose-leash walking to behavior issues, you name it, and we can work through it. All I ask from the owner is dedication and willingness to learn. I'll bring you the tools to success; however, it is up to you to use them. No breed is left behind with me. All breeds are welcome. I also have experience with rescued dogs who may have confidence issues. I am an animal lover turned professional dog trainer.
We work on dog training and behavior modification. We are specializing in private lessons. We have AKC CGC certification. Group lessons are also available. We also provide dog walking and boarding.
I became an animal trainer because of my love for animals and also to help people communicate with their pets. I worked as a dog trainer for 2 years after I graduated from college. After that, I worked for a company that trains animals for television and does the live animal shows at Universal Studios. I have just recently moved home and would like to continue caring for animals and helping owners understand their pets. I can pet sit, dog walk, or help train any pet.
