Wonderful! Pricing is fair and not gouging you at $800 for 8 week training that may or may not work like some trainers. Her training style is EXACTLY what our dogs needed. Our new puppy is obeying commands, leash walking, and not irritating her big sister near as much after just one session. Our older dog has also learned more obedience as well. Of course it all depends on the owner's willingness to be consistent (just like kids!) but I'd say we are off to a great start. Looking forward to more time with Andrea!

Tracee took great care and time to discuss our puppy training options. I was impressed with her knowledge base and greatly appreciated the time and care she put into our introductory consultation. My initial thoughts were " she provided sound advice, provides a good service (@ reasonable price) ... Also, her passion and dedication came across loud and clear! During our first session I was further impressed. I have been a dog owner most of my life and it was incredible to see how much 'we didn't know' and the difference an hour can make with a professional. She showed us the potential in our Pups and even highlighted a few 'red flags' we were not aware of! We are looking forward to building a long term relationship with Rewarded Behavior Continues...

Anne Baxter diagnosed my dog's problem and immediately started addressing it. The four weeks stay with her has made a very visible change in him. He's gone from his last chance to being a good dog. Now it's going to be up to me to maintain discipline and make sure I stay with the lessons that Anne is teaching me. I definitely recommend Anne and her staff if you have a dog that needs training.

About

We are a force - free, hands - free facility using positive reinforcement exclusively. We offer 24-hour access to our private webcam so that you can check on your pup and watch them train anytime during their Board and Train. What I like most about my job is working with dogs and their people. I like knowing that I was able to help to keep another puppy or dog from winding up spending a life outside, or worse, being relinquished because the owner couldn't deal with the bad behavior.

About

At Unleash Fido, "We Can Train Any Dog!" Greetings! My name is Travis Pepperkorn, the owner and trainer of Unleash Fido. I am a certified canine behavior specialist and graduated from Triple Crown Dog Academy. I have over 8 years of dog training experience, working with a wide variety of behaviors, including aggression, fear, basic obedience, and much more. My philosophy of dog training is based on motivation. I look at each dog as an individual, then create a curriculum based off of the dog and the family's needs! I believe that before a dog is expected to do a behavior, it should be shown or taught before being reinforced. Services offered: * Doggy boot camp (in kennel training) * Private lessons * Group classes * Behavior modification * Puppy development

About

"Manfred" and "Risky Business" are the names that were given to my first dog which is loved as a young girl. When a toy apricot-colored poodle was welcomed by my mother and aunt, who were sharing an apartment with a toddler (me), my grandfather asserted that having a puppy at this time in our lives would be a "risky business". Risky was his name from that day forward. Grandpa later got Risky a friend. He was a smooth-haired fox terrier named Manfred (also my grandfather's choice). In 2011, grandpa passed away, but today, I carry on his memory with the business of dogs and training. Deeply ingrained inside me are the memories and fond experiences of training as a child with grandpa. I am a recent transplant from Chicago, where I most recently managed a canine care company for two years. My business is humans and the pets that they love. I am rewarded with the relationships grown and peace it brings me to be among animals. My personal goal is to bring awareness and foster communication between the human and animal species. I aim to assist animal lovers in various ways to facilitate the best possible care for each unique creature. I pride myself on being adaptable and accommodating. Dogs have been my passion since I was able to walk. Much of my professional and personal life has been spent working towards the mastery of understand canines and caring for them with intent. I value respect for animals both domestic and wild. As a result of deeply understanding dogs on a primal basis, I have developed an unspoken language of understanding of the animal on both a bonding and a training level. Some of my services include the following: * Walking * Swimming * Dog psychology * Training of many varieties * Socialization * Trips to animal-friendly stores * Trips to the dog beaches and dog parks * Overnights and middle of the night check-ins * Transportation to and from appointments * CPR and First Aid * Nail trimming * Bathing * Anal glands * Extended stay and home boarding (on a case by case basis for my home) I care for any breed, any size, any age, any temperament, and any animal. I have over 15 years of experience. References are available upon request. I am happy to agree on set daily, weekly, and/or monthly rates. There's a free in-person consultation including estimate and assessments up to two hours in length. I am happy to agree on set per service, daily, weekly, or monthly rates. I do have several local references and a proven track record. I look forward to bringing out the best in your best friend!

I cannot say enough good things about All Dogs Elite! I began with personal training of my 3 dogs and was pleased immediately with Marcus and his effectiveness. Now I have 4 dogs and when we travel I always board them knowing they love going there and that they will not only have lots of playtime and socialization with other dogs but will learn even more while there!

About

I give each dog and their family the personal attention they deserve. My training method is based on your dog's personality, behaviors, aptitude for learning, breed traits, social development and owner goals. My training style has evolved over the past decade. I use an adaptive combination of marker training, leash and collar, and in some circumstances, an e-collar. Overall, it's my goal to achieve your dog's best behavior in the most positive, effective and efficient way possible. Prior to the start of any training, I will evaluate your dog at no charge. This allows me to determine your dog's personality, aptitude for learning, social development, behavioral patterns and any problems. Armed with this information, I can recommend the best training approach with a curriculum designed around your dog and your goals. The evaluation is free of charge, and there is no obligation to sign up for training. Simply contact me to schedule an appointment. Together we can "Unleash Your Dog's Best Behavior!"

I have known Maggie Marshall for about 5 months now and i was impressed the first day she walked into our shop. She knew exactly what to do in situations involving our staff and the dogs. She constantly is adding items that our staff can do and works on ways we can educate and entertain the dogs in our custody. This lady really knows dogs and training!

About

I am training people from the dog's point of view. I offer in-home private dog training. I am a reward-based trainer, and I do not use any aversive technique. Behavior that is rewarded is much more likely to repeat itself. I teach and reward desired behaviors, as opposed to punishing undesired behaviors. Please go to my website for more information about me. Thank you for contacting me.

He barks constantly if you try to take him on a walk or even out the front door. In the backyard (with privacy fence) he is fine. He is showing signs of aggression that cannot continue. He takes clothes/items from us and then becomes extremely possessive. He growls, bares his teeth, and snaps at you if you try to get it back.
