Brian is excellent! If you are considering a trainer for your dog, don't wait another day before hiring him.
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!
Franco is truly amazing with his God-given talent. He takes the time to explain what makes a dog tick. Realistically, his title should not be dog trainer but people trainer. We have learned so much from him in regards to how a dog thinks and as a result we have a very well behaved dog.
Wendy has been a great trainer for our puppy, Kingston, and ourselves. She gives great tips ranging from obedience to overall health and wellness -as per Wendy's advice, we brush King's teeth every night and have noticed such positive results! We are pleased with her techniques :)
Rosie is a good dog trainer and very knowledgeable about dog conditioning. Her passion shines through when she is working with dogs. She is extremely trustworthy and reliable and treats them as if they are her own.
Jane is an excellent dog trainer, although I believe she helped me more than my crazy wheatie. I was really impressed with how much knowledge she has and patience. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. She showed me some tools I can use to use while training my puppy. You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!
Christina is an amazing dog trainer. She has taught Theo, my Lab mix puppy, so much and continues to guide us with our training and homework. She is very professional and kind. Theo loves her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
Very knowledgeable about unruly rescue young dog. Helpful advices. With construction going on in yard, they were able to board and train my puppy, who is so loveable but very energetic, and constant barking at construction activity. When I called for assistance, she came right away to pick up my puppy and board him so I could finish the construction in the yard without upsetting him.
Kathy was great. I learned a lot about our dog and how to continue the training she taught me. I had experiences with other dog trainers and was unimpressed. Kathy knows her stuff and was a pleasure to work with.
I was so happy to find an amazing dog trainer like Joyce. Besides her great expertise, I believe that the dogs sense her compassion & confidence in dealing with them & she works wonders! I would highly recommend Dog Den’s training program!
I can't say enough about Ashley!! She has been grooming my dogs for about 8 years and I honestly couldn't be happier!! She is always punctual, very caring and is a master groomer! Ashley truly loves what she does and is meticulous when grooming our Golden retriever. She is also an exceptional dog trainer for those of you looking for help in the manners department! 😉 Maggie enjoys her spa days! It is rare in this day and age to find someone who is honest, kind and trustworthy...Ashley is certainly one of those people. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great groomer!!
I have a blue Weimaraner who weighed 65 lbs by 1 year old. She had trouble with impulse control and constantly pulled when walking her. Every person and dog we encountered was her new BFF! I am petite and had trouble keeping her from jumping on passers by and from being dragged down the street. Brianna walked my dog and taught me techniques and gave me the tools to train my large puppy. It took a while to train my willful and high energy dog but I can now safely walk my full grown Weim, confident that we will enjoy our walk. Brianna is wonderful with animals, has a gift for working with dogs and training both the dog’s behavior and people on how to train their dog. Brianna is caring, knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. in my opinion, her fees are very affordable. She has also helped me through my dog’s skin rash issues by recommending skin remedies which have been helpful as I do not like giving her antibiotics. I cannot say enough good things about Brianna and highly recommend her. She has been my Dog Whisperer for the past 2 years!
I adopted a one year old Boston Terrier mix who is extremely energetic. I forgot what it was like to have a young dog. Needless to say, I hired Kelly and have been so impressed. First of all, she is extremely professional, enjoyable, no nonsense and always punctual. She has a common sense approach to dog training and the results have been great. I would recommend her to anyone, as she has only proven to provide more than I ever thought I could get.
Yes Dog Training has been a God-send. Stuart is great with our dog, Molly, and knew just how to address some dominant behaviors we wanted to correct. He also came very last minute to take care of her when we went out of town for a couple of days. Molly loves him and we love that he is trustworthy and responsible.
Susan Barton is awesome! Very dedicated, honest, and fun dog trainer. Our dogs enjoyed their time with her. They were much better behaved afterwards! Susan gets proven results! She is the best go-to-person for dog training!
Gisela is an excellent trainer. She is very patient with dogs an has done a very good job with my dog. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anybody. She is also a very nice person and gets along very well with people.
I have known Mike personally for the better part of thiry years. In fact, we worked together in the K-9 unit many years ago.Mike is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced dog trainers I have ever met. Mike recently trained a new puppy that I rescued from the Animal Shelter. I'm extremely pleased with the results needless to say. If your considering having your dog trained, you don't have to look any further than Mike. I know you will be extremely pleased! His reputation speaks for itself.
For the majority of dog owners, choosing the right dog trainer is one of the most important decisions they will have to make regarding their dog. Upon becoming new dog parents to a Dandie Dimmout Terrier named Winston, I often found myself saying "no one knows my dog like I do." Through the training and guidience of Bijan, owner of ORA Dog Training, we realized that we weren’t truly understanding Winston. Bijan trained us to understand our dog’s needs and natural tendencies and the proper way to handle them so that we could live happier lives as dogowners, and most importantly, that Winston could live a happier dog life! While many dog owners might be proficient handlers, Bijan possessed a skillset and information in which he mastered, and the gap between a well-meaning, intelligent dog owner and a trained professional. Bijan is a great listener and is interested in your take on your dog's characteristics, tendencies, personal history, strengths and weaknesses. Rather than immediately dictating who and what needs to change, Bijan starts by sitting down and talking through expectations, concerns and philosophies before starting any actual training or behavior modification work. Bijan was a great communicator both in terms of listening to our questions and concerns as well teaching us and our dog. We were enthused that he wanted to know everything possible about the dog's background so that he could more quickly and effectively identify root causes and implement a positive training protocol. Bijan always included us in the training. He would constantly and effectively communicate what he was doing, and one of his primary goals was for us to step in and eventually take over the actual training with our dog, Winston. Bijan does not only train your dog, but more importantly, he trains you to properly guide your dog. When we first met with Bijan, Winston was a total brat! Did what he wanted, when he wanted, and didn’t understand what we were trying to communicate to him. To be honest, we were skeptical as to how much progress was possible with our disobedient pup, but like magic, after the first hour-long session at our apartment, the progress was amazingly positive! We couldn’t even walk Winston without him sitting on the sidewalk and resisting. Now, Winston is a calm obedient dog (when we want him to be) but he is still the active loveable puppy he has always been. I recommend Bijan to all my friends who own a dog or who are bringing a new dog into their home. Bottom line, hands down, ORA Dog Training are miracle workers and are extremely patient, understanding, and courteous to dogs and their owners!
Marti is an excellent trainer, both for the owner and the dog, or dogs in my case. The improvement after the initial visit is beyond my expectation. She came prepared with collars and harnesses and tried different options to figure out which would be most effective for both the dogs and the owners. We plan on scheduling another lesson, after we continue to work with the dogs on our own for a little while. You can tell marti truly cares about your pet and the well being of both you and your dog. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a dog/owner trainer.
Kaitlyn with Canine Concepts is the best! We brought our 7 month old black lab, Molly, to her looking for obedience training. Kaitlyn responded to our request within minutes and after our initial text on a Sat, meeting on Sun, we dropped off Molly for training on Monday. The process was super quick and we knew immediately she was the trainer for us. She is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and great with our dog. She had Molly for 3 weeks and sent us video updates all the time. She treated Molly like one of her own. When we got Molly back she went over everything we needed to do to continue the training at home, and even came to our house for another training session after we were home for a couple weeks. Molly is a much better, and obedient dog now. She will sit, stay, down, here, place, kennel, drop it, leave it, etc. She walks on a leash without pulling, and doesn't go crazy when people and dogs walk by. She also trained Molly with an e-collar so we can have her off leash at times. We are extremely happy with Molly's progress. Kaitlyn is also available anytime for us to ask her questions, and we also board Molly with Kaitlyn anytime we are away.
I'm a first time dog owner. Arnold could not have been more helpful and concerned with my dog's well being and training. He is totally professional in his approach and I highly recommend him.
