I had my first dog training today (5/23/2016). Mr. Jorge Velez came in and spent a good 2 + hours with me and my dog Marino. I was impressed and liked his style very much. He will continue to do the training until all the objectives are met. I think my dog took very well, right away, working with Jorge, and I look forward to continue working with Jorge until I am satisfied my needs are met. Thanks, Jorge! See you next time.(show more)
We found Susan Vergara, the proprietor of Wagging Willow to be a very knowledgeable and professional dog trainer. We are especially happy to see her work with our problem child, a super exuberant and playful 75 lb. Pit Bull/Labrador mix. It is amazing to see how he responds to her training, and we are thankful for the tools she has given us to continue on helping him to be a more calm and centered dog. Her method relies completely on the Reward Based training method. We recommend Wagging Willow to anyone looking for a dog trainer. The fees are very reasonable too.(show more)
Sherry from Off leash was our trainer. She was amazing & helped us and our puppy, get on the right track with training. Our dog has been a joy to be around since he did his 2 week board & train program. It's definitely something I'd refer to anyone who needs to have their dogs trained. The constant communication during the program and even after the training, they offer help, which is amazing. Thanks off leash 🐶(show more)

Dogs are my passion. I can handle any dog, including aggressive dogs, typically in just a few minutes! I will coach you how to balance and train your dog. I'll give you the intellectual tools to train your dog with no need for dozens of paid lessons and classes. I have worked with almost 3,000 dogs, all one on one in clients' homes. You will not need shock collars or clickers, millions of treats, head halters, or choke collars to train your dog. There is no harsh treatment. I work with dogs at their instinctual level. And this method could be very fast, and it builds trust and respect without harsh treatment. I will work with you and your dog so you can do it too. I will focus on what you want handled. I'll assist you to make your dog balanced and restore harmony to your home. Most situations are handled in only one session, with free lifetime support. We offer free consultation. Email or call anytime. I offer sessions 7 days a week, morning, afternoon or evening. Do you have more than one dog? In most cases, there is no extra charge for extra dogs. Do you have a new puppy? The first day is the best time to start training! For a free consultation, call me, and get started right.(show more)
Tropical Dog Training offers two training programs to meet your needs and training goals: In-home Training - Tropical Dog Training offers training in your dog's living environment in the privacy of your home. In-home training includes 3 visits to your home. The first visit lasts for 2 hours with two two-hour follow-up lessons. Lessons are usually two weeks apart. After training, your dog will know the following commands: heel, come, sit, down, off, place, wait, quiet and release commands. You would need to practice what we covered between lessons at least twenty minutes per day. If control around distractions and off leash is desired, you can choose to train your dog with the use of a professional training device called a remote control dog training collar. Board and Train -Tropical Dog Training will pick up your dog to be trained in our facility by me. We will keep your dog for three weeks and return him/her fully trained. When your dog is returned, I will transfer training control to you and show you how to continue to train your dog. After training your dog will come, sit, down, place, wait, off, quiet, release, and you will achieve off leash control. Your dog will be trained using a professional training device called a remote control dog training collar.(show more)
Michael was incredible in training our lab, Lucy! Lucy was very hyper and excited to greet anyone around her. Michael taught her (and us) how to contain her excitement and what's appropriate and when. We have all our basic commands now (which is especially important with our kids around) and now we are moving onto more advanced training. We highly recommend Michael for dog training!!(show more)

We offer positive training for the everyday dogs of Orlando. We specialize in creating a custom-training program for you and your dog that fits your everyday life! Whether you want a running companion or a fellow couch potato, Every Dog Has Its Day wants to make sure you enjoy your dog everyday! Mandy has been training professionally for over 6 years in the Orlando area. Specializing in rescue dog rehabilitation, Mandy enjoys teaching "old dogs with new tricks and new dogs with old tricks" with her positive training style. About Our Training Method Dog training is about establishing a communication system between the dog and the handler. In the past, the foundation of this communication was based on the avoidance of pain i.e., leash corrections, choke chains, shock collars. etc. The emphasis was on what the dog did wrong. Much has changed in the past thirty years; thanks in large part to the whale and dolphin training at Sea World. By using the principles of operant and classical conditioning, psychological principles that underlay the behavior of all sentient being including humans, the focus has shifted to what the dog does right. By rewarding the behavior we like with food, toys, play, affection, exercise and anything else the dog loves, these desirable behaviors increase in frequency. Likewise by ignoring, managing and preventing the behaviors we don't like, the undesirable behaviors decrease in frequency. Not only is this scientific approach extremely effective, it's also much more fun for the dog and the handler!(show more)
