About

So far I have had great experience with MDW K-9 training. Dave the owner and his beautiful family makes you and your animal friend feel as though as you know them for decades. My puppy has been with them now almost for a week but I can already see some major positive personality changes in her. I strongly recommend Dave's dog training services. I can't wait to bring my puppy home when she is done with Dave and his family.

About

Duty Dog Organization offers general training for all sorts of dogs, but we specialize in service and therapy dog training and placement. We help provide quality, individualized training -- basic to advanced skills -- across Central Florida. We are open to and encourage owner-training for those who want to train their own working dog. We can guide you through the entire training process. We perform a needs assessment to match the handler to their future life partner, and assess puppies and dogs of all ages and backgrounds to determine if they are a "fit" for the client. PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT licensed to train guide dogs for the blind or visually impaired. All dogs coming through our programs are temperament-tested, to help reduce the chance that "bad habits" may crop up. For those in residence training here, we provide quality vet care and food, toys and enrichment activities, and a warm and loving environment. The dogs in training here live as a part of our family, interacting with people and other dogs as much as possible. We focus on positive, reward-based training, and tailor each dog's program to their specific requirements. Our pricing is not published, as every client and dog is different, and needing different skills and training. We determine cost based on the level and type of training required for your dog, and how long it has been with us. We have very low overhead and an all-volunteer staff, so we are able to be competitively priced in our area. Most of our current placements were between $3,000-$5,000. Dogs that have been placed include therapy/companion, apnea alert (for a small child), and PTSD/emotional support. Dogs currently in training (12/2014) include seizure response, Autoimmune Encephalitis support (multiple disabilities), and Down's syndrome support (for a small child), as well as a certified therapy dog, and a pup who is not assigned yet, but we hope will be starting her training as a Hearing Dog. You can learn more about us on our website, and by visiting our Facebook page.

We have an energetic, 8 wk old Australian Cattle dog and were in need of some training. After our first session, Troy was already sitting, downing and even placing on command. After a few more sessions, she already had our energetic puppy walking properly on a leash at 4 months. Jillian is extremely knowledgeable and always made herself accessible to answer any dog training related questions we came up with. She was professional, courteous and I'd recommend her services to anyone. Thanks Jillian!

About

I got addicted to dog training about 8 years ago when I was introduced to the sport of Schultzhund. I do basic obedience and competition for sport. I can also help with problem issues such as house training, dog or people aggression, socialization, jumping, etc. I also do boarding for those times when you need to go on a business trip or vacations. Most of my clients are customers that have purchased a puppy from my kennel but it is not limited for them.

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.
