I didn’t know what to expect with asking a dog trainer to help me out with my big boy, but Andrea exceeded any expectation I had. She gave valuable assessments and suggestions that have so far turned my dominant bullheaded Great Dane mix into a more well rounded, submissive pup. It’s not just about training the dog, but about re-training the people who care for the dog. Can’t wait to have her back to see our progress and to receive more guidance!!
Whitney is a very passionate and dedicated animal caregiver. She is an experienced professional dog trainer who uses positive training methods. I was lucky to have her as my mentor in the Animal Behavior College program and had the opportunity to sit in on some of her awesome training sessions. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer, pet sitter, or dog walker.
Karyn is one of the top trainers I have worked with. My shephard mix pup Anya and I have graduated from puppy 1 class, and have begun level 2 puppy. She is very knowledgeable in every area that has been brought up in class, and in specific issues that come up with my Anya. We hope to become a therapy dog team, and Karyn's training methods are not forceful, or strict dominance methods that instill fear. Her methods are upbeat and fun for handler and dog, and deliver amazing results. Karyn has a natural way with dogs, and a true love for all of them. I cannot recommend a better trainer for both handler and dog!
Working with Eva was an amazing experience! She is phenomenal at what she does and you can see that she's very passionate not only about her job but also about the dogs. She completely trained my dog Bear and now he loves to do his newly learned tricks all the time. Overall it was an amazing experience working with her!
She is superb at training my dog. She is no longer aggressive towards bicycles and skateboards. She is a rescue dog and is 2 years old Sara treated her well and was able to solve her aggression problem
Fantastic dog trainer, Dalya has given me valuable advice with my own furry kid and working in a veterinary hospital i have recommended her to many clients and have had nothing but good feedback from them and have seen the results. Her positive reinforcement approach to training leads to a powerful bond of trust and cooperation. Thankyou Dalya!
Laura's commitment to providing the best care and white glove service is to the highest standards and I have always trusted my dogs in the care of Creature Comfort Pet Services when I have been away. Laura is extremely knowledgeable, passionate and professional and has dedicated a huge part of her life to the care of animals and also educating owners on how to best train their dogs. I highly recommend Laura and Creature Comfort Pet Services!
Tracee is caring and knowlegable. She has been a huge help with my shelter dog. She is a great walker/trainer, you get so much more than a simple walk.
Jennifer has a very friendly and outgoing personality but is extremely professional at the same time. in the first two hours my dogs made significant progress and I signed up for 6 more sessions. I am convicted I have chosen the right trainer for my pups
Love this place! Experienced trainers, that love animals. They are doing a great job training my Golden Lab, she is a handful. They are also training me how to work with Belle. Very patient, and Knowledgeable ,so happy I found them.
Caleb Frisbee trained an autism service dog for my son. He helped us locate an amazing breeder to get a puppy from. He was always available to answer any questions I had. We have had the dog for 3 months and he is still there to offer support and answer questions. Our dog is well behaved and well trained. I could not ask for a better trained dog. The difference he has made in my son's life is amazing. I highly recommend Caleb Frisbee for any of your training needs.
I am Stacy's mentor trainer through animal behavior college. She is attentive and trustworthy. She is great around all dogs she has worked with. I refer clients to her for pet sitting and dog walking when i am not available and she has always helped. I highly recommend her.
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!
If you know my Bailey, then you know she is as stubborn, destructive and temperamental as they come. Thankfully, Jen was able to quickly gain her trust and control, now she follows commands very well. After just one training session, Bailey is a whole new pup!! No more destructive behavior at home, she follows command and is now super well behaved!! Complete 360!! Jen was super thorough on training instructions and techniques, left training with no questions. The way she was able to immediately gain the trust of my stubborn pup was beyond belief! Within 15 mins Bailey was following commands like a seasoned dog! Can't wait to learn more with my Bailey and continue to grow!! Just AMAZING! I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a great trainer!!
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!
Great service. I loved working with the trainer. She was very professional and made me (and my dog) feel comfortable. She has great knowledge of dogs and of owners. We learned so much from working with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer. Thanks again for everything :)
Although not a dog groomer, they are dog TRAINERS and that is what I was looking for. Answered quickly and gave me the needed info. Looking forward to a long relationship for my service dog.
I first met Wally and Edith in April of 2013 when I began attending basic obedience class with my Weimaraner puppy (Oliver). I have been attending class between one and two times a week since then. Oliver has been boarded with Wally and Edith on three occasions. The first time was in the summer of 2013 for approximately 50 days while I was studying law in France. The second and third times were after that for about 5 days each time. Wally and Edith are the only people I will trust Oliver with, aside from his vet. Wally and Edith have many students and EVERY student that I have met over the last year, has the upmost respect and admiration for them. Additionally, Oliver has made monumental strides in terms of obedience. As a result, Wally and Edith have helped me develop and strengthen my relationship with him. I encourage you to visit their website and visit one of their classes if you have any questions as to the quality of training that Wally and Edith provide.
Lisa is truly amazing! She is not a one-size-fits-all trainer. She takes the time to get to know you, your dog and what you want to accomplish. Then she teaches you how to train your dog. Our rescue dog Rocky has made such significant progress because we have learned the right things to do.
Great trainer, my dog is much better with other dogs now. She's really come out of her shell. Would recommend Hakim to anyone needing some help with their Baby. He even takes the time to show me some tricks to keep the great training in tact. AMAZING
