I adopted a 3 years old Shih Tzu from a local rescue group about 6 months ago. I was having a difficult time with potty training and any basic commands. The problems seemed to be getting worse instead of better as time went on. Brian was very patient with Toby and I. He showed me how to correct the problems and how to really communicate with my dog. The clicker was a new thing to me, but I must say it has been very effective with the obedience training. Toby learned to sit on cue in the very first session. Toby and I are definitely on a new path now and I see a very bright future together. I would highly recommend Brian for any training or behavior issues that you might be having.
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!
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.
Personal dog training, having a hard time house training following her method 2 days saw 95% decrease in accidents have seen one since, obedience training going well
Best trainer ever!!!! My puppy and I had so much fun with today's training!!! We're learning so many new things and at the same time having a blast!!! Never thought dog training could be this much fun! 🙉
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!
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.
Excellent trainer... Very knowledgeable, he did with Bosco what I thought was impossible and only seen on TV Bosco completed basic obedience at only 4 months of age, and is now almost finished with Advanced obedience
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.
Diego is very professional and has a wealth of knowledge about dog training. He was able to connect with my dog, lead him and have my dog follow his commands during the first training session. He was absolutely amazing with my dog. Diegos time was worth every minute. I recommend him to anyone who would like to get their dog trained.
I have three rescue dogs and have fostered many. Over the years, I have helped friends and family with everything from problem dogs to basic training. References and examples of my work are available upon request.
I walk dogs and do feeding. I am willing to do light training. I am always on time. I am very good with animals. I love cats and dogs.
