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!
Brian was great with our two puppies, Ziva and Zoe. His patience with two new puppies was amazing. He worked with them on several different behaviors. His training method works with clickers and rewards for desired behaviors. Both dogs picked up on his training quickly and effectively.He is always available by phone to answer any questions we might have. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, effective dog trainer.
Franco was terrific as a trainer with my Boston Terrier He got my dog to be obedient, listen to commands and just all around a better dog My dog Buddy Boy really liked Franco and responded well to him I would strongly recommend him for anyone looking for a great dog trainer Tony E
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 :)
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!!!!!!!
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.
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.
She was on time and very knowledgeable. Our dog was having a problem with going to the bathroom inside the house and she is an older dog. She gave us a lot of solutions and we tried them and it has worked almost instantly. Would recommend!
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.
Very helpful explaining specific rules and ways to helplay my dog and I to understand each other better
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!
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!
Smokey Joe, our 7-lb, Yorkie-Poo (with some other stuff mixed in), was a wild man, er, dog. When we would try to get him to come to us to take him out to "conduct his business", he would think it was a game of tag (and we were "it"). He was so fast and nimble that we could not catch him. Carol Harris met Smokey Joe and us and within the 1st half hour of his 1st lesson, Smokey was behaving better. Carol was very good with him and patiently explained to us how we would have to behave to improve Smokey's behavior. We liked the old Smokey Joe, but we like the new Smokey Joe even better thanks to Carol's efforts. I would unreservedly recommend Carol as an outstanding trainer for any of your dog's issues.
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.
I believe anyone that has gone to any dog training 101, would not be able to compare it or compete with the wealth of information and personal training I have experienced in Americanidog training with Daniel Ratte. There are many challenges presented for our classes . My personal growth as a dog owner and learning the training aspects to gain the complete devotion and respect of my four legged best friend is truly remarkable. For me I can truthfully state Daniel Ratte is a highly rated dog trainer and has made a incredible difference in my life. and Oh What fun for me and my dog!!!!
I have know Dave for a long time. I watched him train his Chocolate lab Coco from a pup to a Champion. She is a remarkable dog! He helped me train my little pug dog who was quite stubborn. Dave helped Teddy and me find the patience that it took to learn how to make him a well behaved member of our family. Dave is very professional and respectful with me and my wife and of our home. He has had full access to my home when we were away on vacation and has lived up to the trust that we put in him.
We have a 5 month old Goldendoodle that is a bundle of energy. Needed help with housebreaking, obedience, crating and leash walking. Marti assessed our dogs behavior and was confident she could work with her. We opted to send our dog with Marti for a 10 day boot camp and board her at her home. When our dog Harley came home Marti discussed all facets of her training and took the time to teach us hand commands and the proper cue technique to continue reinforcing what she has learned. Harley is 10 times more obedient, is a pleasure to walk, sits, stays and lays down on command. I highly recommend Marti for her knowledge and training skills. If you want a dog that you can be proud of give Marti a try you'll be glad you did!
I contacted Bob for help with my two dogs because one of them had gotten very aggressive with other dogs and the other dog was constantly barking at people and dogs, all the time! Bob talked to me by phone before the appointment about the dogs and quickly scheduled a time to come to my home. He spent a lot of time with me my first training session, asking questions, observing me with my dogs in/out of the house, and then gave suggestions about how to change their routine, establish a leader role, and how to deal with aggressive behavior. Bob's experience, ease with the dogs, and helpful hints changed both of my dog's behavior in the first session! Bob asked that I continue to follow his suggestions during the week and he would check in with me to see how we were progressing. I liked that he was encouraging, knowledgeable, and willing to follow up by phone before the next training session. I felt comfortable calling him and asking for help that week, when I wasn't able to deal with an aggressive dog situation. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone having difficultly with their dogs. He is a natural with animals and has a lot of practical experience to share. I wished I had worked with him earlier and will continue to meet with him weekly for individual training with the dogs and then advance to a group training class he runs on the weekends. Thanks Bob for all your help!!!
Very good trainer
Our lab mix would pull when on her leash making walking her uncomfortable. She now walks without pulling due to Kelly’s training. She also went wild when someone would come to the door. Kellly took care of that problem too. We tried other trainers before Kelly and they were a waste of time and money. Kelly is the BEST!
