I had Bob come into my house to help train my dog basic obedience. Right away my 10 month old puppy took right to him as he started training as soon as he walked in the door. My dog really responded to the positive training and I am continuing to work with my puppy on my own. Bob is very knowledgeable in dog training.
Meri and Steve helped me get control of my tiny BIG dog. My toy Morkie did not listen to me at all and now listens better! We are very pleased with their training techniques! They are clear and very easy to learn. We would highly recommend them to anyone needing obedience training!
Michele is an incredibly talented pet sitter and animal lover. Our Emmet loved every minute Michele came to spend time with him! Not only did she play with him, she also began training him on basic commands, fed our fish AND got our mail for us! I put 100% trust into Michele and gave her complete freedom with training Emmet. I am certainly glad I did and look forward to many more visits and pet sitting opportunities!
We bought our new Puppy To Ron at just 8 weeks old - we talked to 5 other trainers who stated our "max" was too young to Obedience train - boy were they not only wrong but Ron not only Obedience trained max - he fixed his nipping habits, jumping, running off and even his bad Housebreaking routine - I would highly recommend anyone who gets a Puppy to go to Ron for Training - He is truly THE BEST - Thanks again Ron
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!
Hello out there dog lovers!Having a problem with your dog?Whether it be aggression,other dogs,small children,leash walking or just general obedience Janine is the woman you want on the other side of your dogs leash! I was having continuous issues with my German Shepard nixon with all the issues above.So I scouted around trying to find what would best serve my dog & receive the training he required. Janine came to my house and we spoke for about a good hour about what the problems were and how to best handle the situation being bestowed upon her.She was very thorough in Her line of questioning and was extremely attentive in what I had to say.Moving forward.janine took nixon for just over 2 weeks and came back a different dog! I had to drop him off at her house(which was good for I wanted to know where my dog was gonna be.)she was with him every moment of the day teaching Him leash walking skills,temperament with other animals,and Children(which were her own kids!)Needless to say that I was was the problem and not the dog. After I got my dog back she stayed with me for around 2 hrs explaining to me that in order for him to stay this way I had to continue in the training of him.after that Janine did a couple follow up visits to see how he was responding And 1of those visits we went to pet smart to see how he would react to other animals in my care...which was great!All the same, If you have any issues with your pet INSPIRED K9 is where you wanna take your dog!!! I can't thank her enough for the training & guidance I received from her and would like to say thank you again for all your hard work!!
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.
Excellent follow up, very comfortable with my dog, easy to work with. Amanda is experienced and professional.
Rudy has had our 2nd Gen. German Shepherd puppy and has taken a very head strong dog thru basic training and I can not say enough good things about his program and procedures to bring this dog into what we wanted him to be. Now we are going to let him go thru the protection and aggression part of his program. I can't say more about this trainer but to tell you if you want your dog trained right talk to Rudy. Without any abuse to a head strong dog he is the man for you. I plan on getting another Shepherd and no one would I consider other than him. I could not be more pleased or satisfied with his program working with my dog and my wife Debbie's baby.
Sandi really listens to you & your needs. Then addresses them with positive training. Very knowledgeable!
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.
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!!!!!

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.
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 love dogs! I've owned several different breeds throughout my life and will never be without one or two. I know how positive feedback behavior works and use this method with my dogs. I understand how they think and can handle almost any situation with good results. I am drug free and am willing for you to do a background check on me if you'd like to. I have reliable transportation and will always be on time.
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 offer positive, family friendly dog training. I have trained over 300 families and their dogs. I know that many dogs end up in shelters due to behavioral issues. I use scientifically based positive reinforcement to invest the owners in proper training to ensure a long and happy relationship based on trust and love. I train group classes sponsored by Suncoast Humane Society and other group classes for the Greater Venice Dog Club. I have many private students and am recommended by local veterinarians. I specialize in working with shy and reactive dogs. I believe in continuing education and have attended dog seminars and conferences across the nation. I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator and work closely with Suncoast Humane Society's Pet Therapy teams.
We breed American bulldogs and have been for 10 years. I have been in the animal business for 30 years, raising pets of all varieties, owning pet stores, and training dogs, cats, birds, and even fish. I spent 4 years in training seals and sea lions as well as dolphins. I have worked closely with veterinarians, from exams to surgeries. I am sure of myself with all sizes and breeds of dogs. I assist in potty training, basic home training, and more advanced commands. I do not train for protection. I do work your dog into your family lifestyle and any individual, personal or medical issues you may have. I work with kindness and love and hands-on confidence and touch. They are a large part of our world.
