We have a 7 mth old Boston Terrier (Lucy). I've had the pleasure of having Brian teaching me and helping me to understand her good and bad behavior. Brian's technique is great and helpful. He is professional and knowledgeable. Brian is still working with Lucy and she's still in training, but her progress is terrific. Brian is performing training on site/at our home and always prompt and flexible to schedule and reschedule as needed. Brian explains in detail about the click and treat method which is very effective. Lucy is very responsive to Brian's training and his method is extremely successful! I highly recommend Brian for helping/training the owners to understand their dogs behavior and for any additional help with dog training.
Excellent. Professional, arrives on time, works well with my dog and myself. He has given me SO much insight as to my dog's behavior and why she acts the way she does. I understand my dog better now. Love that he writes "homework" for us so I can refer back to that. Also if I run into a problem with my dog between sessions, he promptly texts me back and tells me how to correct the behavior (or how I should be responding to my dog). A+ highlt recommend Cliff! 😊
I've only had one session with Franco, but I think it's going to be great. He had my dog under control within 2 minutes of walking through the front door. Impressive!
Jose was perfect, very knowledgeable about the behavior of dogs. Patient , understanding and seemed extremely educated on his career.. Was at a loss about what to do with my dog but he gave me the confidence to understand the behavior and taught me how to deal with it. I am sure with time all he showed me will give my dog the understanding to know that not all people are cruel. Thank you Jose you really understood my issues
Wendy understands dogs and knows how to get the best behavior out of each individual dog (working with their needs and personality, and at their level). Not only were the classes straight forward with a positive approach but Wendy demonstrated time and time again she cares about dogs. My puppy was a rescue one and had a traumatic experience outside of class and Wendy went above and beyond to get Gemma back on track before the end of the puppy classes. She is personable and practical, and always willing to answer questions and provide help. This class has been a very positive experience, and I appreciate her care, knowledge and expertise with my Chihuahua. Nesira Baker, Gemma's owner
Rosie has done an outstanding job with our puppy! She is professional, friendly, punctual and has such a way with the animal. Highly recommend!
Very personable and professional. Truly was a pleasure having her take care of our animal!
Chrsitina has a way with animals.. Brody loves her and has started to become a disciplined, obedient pup...
She did a great job with my dog. I was very impressed with the changes that occurred with his behavior
Holly has been fantastic! Flexible, trustworthy and she is a true animal friend. Our Lucy loves her! Thank you Holly.
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.
We called Ann for help with our very active one year old Mastiff/hound mix, Walter. From the very first meeting there was a sense of professionalism and kindness and with her training under Cesar Milan, we knew she would be perfect for the task ahead. Currently we are half-way through our lessons and Walter is already a changed dog. He is no longer ruling the house and has become much calmer and happier. He now has purpose and is very focused on what his role as a dog is. Just being able to have someone knock on the door without mayhem is worth the price of the lessons and that is only one of the many goals that Walter has accomplished so far. We had prior puppy and intermediate classes in a pet sotre but there is no comparison between them and private lessons with Ann. Ann's approach is strong, focused and patient. She trains with purpose, kindness wile not putting up with unwanted behavior. The knowledge and tips she shares is priceless. She also gives Walter time to think things through so he really "gets it." We are looking forward to our next lessons and to continued growth for Walter into becoming the wonderful dog and companion we know he will be thanks to Ann.
It was obvious that Katie cares about animals, even my little feral cat that I love.
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!
Wanda was amazing. She genuinely cares about her animals, and did an awesome job on my little fur baby. Highly recommend!!!
Kelly is fantastic. She is great with pups. She went out of her way to understand our Hound and helped us find a way to combat most of her negative behaviors. Tiger is a completely different dog after our sessions. My relationship with my pup has changed in the best way possible and I owe it to Kelly. Thank you!!
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!
Can't begin to express how happy and fortunate we feel to have found Nicole! She is not only exceptionally trustworthy, communicative and professional, but she goes above and beyond when caring for our dog. She takes the time to teach him new tricks, promote good behavior and also trains us to continue those positive behaviors. Incredible!! I highly recommend Nicole!
Carlos is an awesome canine trainer. He improved the relationship I have with my dog. I experienced the improvement after the first session. He spend a lot of time explaining the dogs behavior & taught me how to respond to each behavior. I now have an obedient dog while maintaining a balanced relationship. He has so much knowledge & experience. I did not realize my counter productive behavior until our sessions. I recommend Green to Alpha for all new dog owners.
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.
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!
