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.
Canine Coach is wonderful. His knowledge about my dog just from the way I described him over the phone was extremely impressive, to say the least. It got even better when he arrived at my house! He taught me things about my dog I would have never known regarding his behavior and just about dogs in general. He sat down with my roommate and I and addressed all of our concerns, responding with both recommendations and pure knowledge. In addition, his way with my dog was unbelievable. My dog is an adult shelter dog who has displayed aggresive behavior in the short time I have had him and has already improved after my session with Canine Coach (it has not even been a full 24 hours since our session!). He taught me how to properly handle my dog with certainty and confidence and how to approach situations that a dog with a rough past would find threatening. I HIGHLY recommend using Canine Coach for any and all of dog related training and/or behavioral issues!
Very personable and professional. Truly was a pleasure having her take care of our animal!
She did a great job with my dog. I was very impressed with the changes that occurred with his behavior
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 been taking classes from Dan Ratay with American Idogs since the summer of 2010. I had tried several other dog training classes, but they were always repetitive and dull after awhile. Daniel introduced me to clicker training which was new to me at the time, and it turned out to be a very useful tool. He uses only positive reinforcement (something else that set him apart from the other classes I looked into). How can I take the same class for 2 years now?? Many of his students are returning students session after session, because we always learn something new. Each class is built upon the basics we have learned, but always has a challenging new twist to make it interesting, to keep us thinking, and to practice with the dogs at home. Also, what I really like about Daniel is that he covers the topic of dog behavior as well to help us understand and read our dogs better. We talk about how certain dogs react during class as examples to understand what he is talking about. By doing this, it allows us to apply what we are learning outside of class, where it really matters. And most of all, classes are FUN!!! It is an environment where we can feel free to ask questions because many times, other people can learn from them too. It is not competitive like some other dog training classes, and we are all there to help each other. Every time I go, I have fun and I know the dogs do too.
Mona is a natural dog person who has added to her great instincts with lots of education about dogs and dog behavior. She immediately connected with my dog and was patient and also a good leader, and I could tell my pup was more confident and comfortable around her. I would trust Mona with my animals and I would recommend that others trust her, too. Your animals are in good hands with Mona!
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!
We have known Yayquel for over 10 years. She had a special relationship with both of our older dogs, who boarded regularly where she worked. When our dog was 17, we knew she was not going to be able to board with a good experience, and we had JJ come to our home. The love, caring consideration and respect she gave to our "old dog" was amazing. We sent our Tessa to the Rainbow Bridge, and now she cares for our 12 year old rescue Border Collie. JJ knows dogs, and families and the concerns each of us may have while travelling. She will make your vacation or business or personal trip much less stressful and worry-free. Use her!!
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!
Gisela, helped us with our golden retriever . She designed a personalized plan and showed all of us how to patiently train and obtain the best in him. She was great with our kids , included them to actively participate in his training. Gave us pointer in behavior modification for Charlie that is needed for daily activities with him. She was professional, patient, lovable with animals and kids. Only have good things to say about our experience with her and highly recommend her training technique.
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!
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.
I'm so in love with Jossie I will never let her go. Amazingly sweet and caring. Jossie thank you for everything that you have done for me and the dogs. I truly could not say enough wonderful things about Jossie. She went so far above & beyond what I was hoping for. She spent quality time with our pets, took great care of the house & we came home to 2 happy, healthy animals. My two Dobermans were very well cared for and happy while I was gone. I got emails and pictures during my trip with updates which put me at ease during the trip. I would not hesitate to leave them in Jossie care again. She treated them with love as if they were her own fur babies. My dogs 8 months every day supervised by Jossie, before I go back to Germany. I would give it 100 stars if i could!!! I would recommend to EVERYONE!
🐶🐶the best she is super sweet she loves dogs 🐶😊 %100 good!!!
I hired Maila, aka my dog whisperer, to take care of my dog, Buffy, and cat, Chloe for ten days while I traveled to New Jersey. Buffy, who is 13, is a very temperamental dog and does not like strangers. She is the type to bite the mailman, etc. Chloe is a shy kitty and likes to hide in the closet. Maila met Buffy and Chloe a few days before I left for my trip and they became fast friends. She loved Buffy as if it was her own doggie, and was able to coax Chloe out of her hiding space. I was impressed at how adaptable Buffy and Chloe became to her presence. Maila has a warm and engaging personality especially with animals. While I was away, she sent me daily updates including videos and photos. I was so happy with her services that I decided to hire her part-time when I came back to Miami to come by and give some extra love to my babies. Maila is reliable and I highly recommend her to take care of your animals.
I don't have a business, and I need a part-time work. Well, I'm friendly, and I love animals. I am willing to work for you and take excellent care of your pets as if they are mine.
I will wait on your animals hand and foot. They will go for walks and play. Sometimes, I like to take them to the pet store and let them pick out their own toy and treat.
I'm a well-known animal fundraiser in South Florida and will love to care for your fur angels. I will walk and feed them in a timely manner.
Hi! I'm an energetic 24-year-old who is ready to care for your pet! I will go to your home to feed and play with them, or you can bring them here. I can care for every type of animal from birds to horses. I have a large backyard and lots of time to play with and care for your animal.
