Bottom line: This guy knows what he's talking about and knows what he's doing. I thought my Walker Coon Hound was train- proof. Brian proved me wrong- my dog is getting more and more obedient after every session and he loves it. Clickr training with Brian works. I felt a wave of relief after the first session. Overall great 100 percent positive experience. Highly recommend.
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!
I had a great feeling about Franco the first time I talked to him. He came to us for the first time today and I am so excited. My dog is already responding and Franco is a true professional and knows his stuff. Looking forward to a long relationship with Franco training my Maggi.
Wendy is a peach! My "rescued dog" Hunter, a dachshund, is very skitish with people and other dogs, but from the moment Wendy walked into our home, Hunter received her as a friend! That in itself says a lot. After 6 weeks, we have now taken him, with Wendy's guidance, to the local dog park for the first time since we have had him, and maybe the first time in his life, and contrary to my worst fears, he was very well behaved, which I can only credit to Wendy's affectionate and patient dog (and people) training. I would highly recommend Puppy Dog Luv/Wendy Heller for training!
Rosie has been training our goldendoodle (Derby) off an and on for a few months and has done a great job. He responds very well to the training and looks forward to her visits (and treats). I recommend Rosie for those looking for 1on1 training for their puppy.
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.
I recently brought my dog to see Kathy at Best Friends Dog Obedience Training, I was having a few training issues that I couldn't resolve myself. Kathy was extremely professional with my dog and I. I highly recommend Kathy for your pet!
Ashley has been my groomer for over 10 years. I have never received anything but professional service. Very dependable and punctual. My fur babies love Ashley, she is so patient with them. Ashley has also trained 2 dogs for me. One was already a year old and the other was just a puppy. The training Ashley provided was AWESOME. The training was done a little over a year ago and I have yet to have any issues with any of the commands she taught them. For weeks after the training Ashley was always there to take my calls and answer any of my questions. I recently moved out of Florida and visited, checked out and used a few groomers and nothing compares to the service I received from Ashley.
Mr. Otazo has been training my 8 month old (huge) puppy for about 4 weeks now, and I am so thankful for have coming across such a caring company as Atazo Animal Services is. I have met most of the employees and they are all so kind to Kane as well as I. Kane is very happy to have them around, he is not easy one and they have had all the patience in the world to help Kane become the best version of himself.
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!
Linda Greenfield is an exceptional dog trainer with a keen understanding of canine behavior and family dynamics. She is an amazing teacher and handler and I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning the art of dog training and how to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Dog training has never been so much fun and rewarding. Thanks Linda!
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!
We have hired Susan a few times to care for our dog, Carmel. We love her friendly and positive attitude. Love the pictures she sends of Carmel when we are away!
I highly recommend working with Megan. Her compassion for dogs and upbeat nature made the training itself engaging and enjoyable for my one year old labradoodle! She always gave 110% to me and my dog, she is reliable, organized and most of all knowledgeable in the training and behavior of dogs.
Very professional and knows how to deal with the different pet personalities. My chihuahua is very well mannered and house broken thanks to Edgar's training.
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!
The entire experience was excellent. Our Lab Rasta is no longer pulling or jumping. Mike and Crystal were incredible, they provided daily feedback and videos. They also spent time with both my husband and myself on renforcing the training. We are ecstatic with the outcome and would highly recommend Canine Calypso. Rasta has already gone back for boarding while we went on a short trip, he loves it as well. Very happy with the entire experience.
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.
I'm all about the dogs -- that means walking, exercising, training, sitting, and behavioral modification.
