I am thrilled with the training experience and results from Rick, his facility and his team at Love Dog Inc. After 4 weeks of boarding and training, my large breed doodle puppy came back a happy and obviously well cared for little gentleman. Rick and his staff are professional, highly skilled, totally calm and positive and are an incredible dog training organization.

Great first visit with Rick. He helped us understand the puppy world and provided great guidance for a plan forward. And he was great with our Gina. She loved him too! Can't wait to see him again soon to continue our puppy training program.

Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!

Cliff is an exceptional trainer. We had a pretty severe case of aggression with our dog. Our dog is a 5 year old shepherd lab mix and 100 pounds so dealing with the aggression was pretty hard so we hired Cliff. We were a little nervous in the beginning because we are very protective of our "baby." Cliff showed great professionalism and is very skilled and trained trainer. We now trust Cliff 110% with our dog and he has taught us so much!!! Our dogs behavior has improved so much and even friends and family have noticed and commented. His past behaviors included biting, aggression towards other dogs on walks, not listening to us and overall stubbornness and if he didn't want to do it he wasn't going to. We still have things to learn and more training to do but our dog has definitely had a major improvement and continues to learn from Cliff. If you are looking for a trainer for your dog Cliff is your guy!

I hired Cliff to help me with my service dog in training, and he was great! Always arrived on time, very professional, and my dog loved him. From teaching my dog how to walk next to my wheelchair, to touching up basic obedience, and helping build her confidence, Cliff gave us the tools we needed to succeed as a team. What I liked most was that he took his time to explain everything, wrote down detailed "homework" for the week for us to work on, and would stay after the hour session to answer any questions I had. He really cares about his clients. I would definitely recommend him!

We have a 7 mth old Boston Terrier (Lucy). I've had the pleasure of having Brian teaching me and helping me to understand her good and bad behavior. Brian's technique is great and helpful. He is professional and knowledgeable. Brian is still working with Lucy and she's still in training, but her progress is terrific. Brian is performing training on site/at our home and always prompt and flexible to schedule and reschedule as needed. Brian explains in detail about the click and treat method which is very effective. Lucy is very responsive to Brian's training and his method is extremely successful! I highly recommend Brian for helping/training the owners to understand their dogs behavior and for any additional help with dog training.

Franco is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is amazing with my pit mix. His training is not only with the dog but with the owners as well. His knowledge is second to none and there were immediate results after the first lesson. After week 2 we have seen DRASTIC positive results. I recommend Franco to any and everyone who has any time of behavioral or psychological issues with their dog. He is the guy to fix the problems.

When my Lab was younger he didn't want to eat regularly. Rosie combined training with dog food to make it a good experience for him. Rosie's own dog, Hanna, is one of the better trained dogs I have met and her Hogan helped so many doing his therapy work. Rosie is right up there with the best. She is a natural.

We hired Leby to help us with our 8 month old Standard Poodle pup that was highly reactive to just about everything except other dogs. I had already done a lot of research into this matter; however Leby still was able to give me pointers on many matters. Leby is very knowledgeable in dog training, plus she is compassionate and actually wants to help in these situations. Many trainers seem to want only to help with basic training, not these hard cases. I easily give Leby 5 paws as she was great.

Leby was very professional and knowledgeable about her work. She spent time getting to know Grace and learning what it is I was looking for in her training. I know that one lesson was not enough, but cannot afford more. It will be my responsibility to follow through with what she taught us. Leby was extremely nice and I would highly recommend her for training your dogs!

Dogs and training are in Erinn's DNA and you will see that when you and your dog meet her. Our puppy Vizsla was more than we could handle. A bundle of well intentioned energy that needed some software rewrites. An athlete that needed coaching badly. Erinn is that coach. Our dog is hard wired to hunt and pursue anything that moves (lizards, leaves, balls) but gets in the zone. Erinn now helps us control the zone and all behavior. We didn't want to train that away, just channel it. Also other indoor vs outdoor behavior including proper house breaking. All the usual commands, plus where and how to sit, come, down, up, fetch. Drop it....all of the must have commands into the head of our stubborn puppy! It's clear Erinn loves doing this. The puppy also loves Erinn. Thats not to say she isn't serious, she is. But the manner is terrific as you'll see. She sends us videos of the progress which helps when you board your pup and miss her. She works with the owners to train them too if needed. Just terrific.

I have called dog trainers all around the U.S., and Tackett Service Dogs in Palm Beach was the only company that actually cared! Love that they are a family owned company, and don't just care about the money. They take their training seriously, and truly care about each and every dog that they work with. I chose to work with this company out of all of the others that are local to me in Georgia.

Erinn is awesome! She really has a passion for training all dogs, and is great at it. I have gone through 3 different trainers for my doodle so far! I guess third time is a charm! If you are looking for a professional trainer call Erinn. Obedience, service, therapy and good manners she can do it all!

Very professional, saw improvement in my dogo argentino within the first few hours. Also on my all ready well behaved doberman pinscher. It was awesome how much more comfortable I feel when I am walking my dog using the techniques and the non physical reinforcement methods he taught me. Also, he took the time to thoroughly explain what to do, how to do it, and what to expect. Very highly recommended.

Kathy was amazing with my dog Bella. She quickly took over the situation and helped Bella to become more responsive to commands. She now listens much better and is able to sit, lay, stay, heal and follow other commands. It helped me grow a stronger connection with my dog along the way, and learn how to be able to train my dog without any yelling or being physical with the dog.

Joyce did an amazing job with our two dogs, Dicey & Tipper. Before we sent them to her, walking them was nearly impossible. Joyce worked her magic and got them to walk side by side with no leash-pulling. She is an extremely knowledgeable dog trainer and is very patient. Our dogs love her! The best is that she sends daily pictures and updates. We know that our dogs are well cared for and loved when they go to Joyce. I highly recommend her for both dog-sitting and dog-training. Thank you Joyce!

Arnold was absolutely amazing. We adopted an 18 month old collie/lab mix, Sam. He had very little training and he's about 45lbs. Needless to say, it was overwhelming. Arnold came in and worked with our whole family, including the kids to help us train Sam and help us understand his behavior and how to help him integrate into our family. I was pretty desperate when Arnold first came and after the first training, I felt much better. After 3-4 training sessions and our family consistently working with Sam, I am happy to report we have a happy, well-behaved dog (for the most part, he IS still a puppy) and we have confidence in our ability to handle him. I cannot say enough about Arnold and his expertise. Highly, highly recommend!

A++++++++. Gari has become an invaluable asset to my family. I've worked with her for over 4 years while I've adopted two resecue puppies. We started out with puppy training basics (sit, stay, lay down, drop it, leave it commands etc.). As my dogs grew and developed their own personalities, she worked with us on behaviorial issues like digging, separation anxiety, chewing up carpets, howling. Our dogs are like our children and just like our real children need guidance and boundaries, so do our dogs. Gari has helped us create a happy and loving home for my entire family; children and dogs. She is 100% worth every penny but you have to be willing to truly work with your dog and put the time in. She's a gem.
