My daughter was a first time pet owner and knew that she was in over her head and needed immediate help in training her new rescue dog. We're so grateful, on so many levels, to have found Maureen on Thumbtack. She not only trains the dog but more importantly, trains the owner. I can tell you the first time Remi met Maureen he was nervous and barking non-stop. After her training, it looked like Remi was going to bite her ankle as she was walking away, just as she predicted would happen. Maureen said training is about reading and understanding Remi and the behaviors he displays. For instance, how Remi would quickly glance at my daughter when a stranger is in eyesight. Maureen also came prepared with yummy treats to reward Remi for his good behavior. Positive training! On Maureen's second visit, Remi was outside on the lawn wagging his tail upon seeing her. Maureen taught us a wonderful game using a cupcake pan and had so much useful information to share with us while leash training Remi. Her last visit, we opened our door and Remi was licking her ankles. I very HIGHLY recommend Maureen for training your beloved pet (and you).
We had David over within the last 12 hours and we already have a different dog. Tonight was the best time we've had with her since rescuing her in May. She seems happier and less anxious. We are of course ecstatic and are looking forward to conitnuing her training. Our puppy finally feels like a part of the family! Thank you David!
I hired Todd from South Orlando Dog Training to help me with my aggressive German Sheppard Tanny.. After 3 sections I have seen great improvements. Todd has given me the tools to continue with Tanny's training. He is doing well and he is improving more each day.. thank you Todd
Martha really went above and beyond in helping us with training our Siberian Husky puppy. Before Martha, we had issues with housebreaking her, she wouldn't listen to us, and we had much difficulty in training her ourselves. When Martha came along and offered her assistance to us, we decided to give her a shot. And we definitely made the right choice. We decided to enroll our dog in Martha's Board & Train program for two 3-day sessions. And within that time period, the dog we used to know was no more. She is now house broken, she listens to commands and performs them. We are truly grateful for the services Martha has provided to us. She not only trains the dog but works with us and trains us to be better dog owners as well. I would highly recommend Martha to anyone seeking assistance with their dog.
Jr. did great work with out dog Tucker! Tucker has always been a "good" dog but had his alpha priorities a little mixed up thinking that he was above me and below my husband. Therefore, he would only ever listen to my husband. He is listening better! We never took walks with him because I had high anxiety about other dogs because he has aggression towards other dogs. Jr. not only brought his dog to a training session to help with the aggression issues but also gave us tools and things to do with other dogs if they approached and helped my anxiety. Last night we went on a walk and when walked out of the house a dog had wiggled loose of his collar and ran up to Tucker. Although, I was not the calmest when this happened he handled it like a champ and showed no aggression toward the other dog and we were able to continue on our walk with no other problems. Two months ago that would have never happened! Thank you for all your help with Tucker! We appreciate him being part of the pack now instead of trying to be the alpha all the time!
Rose is amazing! She has been working my 8 month old beagle. Rose has been working w/ us on leash training, sit, stay, come, not jumping and has really helped w/ the nipping and biting. I highly recommend her for anyone that needs dog training. She is worth every penny.
We are very thankful for Christine, her professionalism, and her genuine love of animals. It is one less thing to worry about before going out of town, because we know that Christine and K9 Holistics will not only take great care of our furry family members, but also take great care of our house while we are away. We receive text message updates and photos, and when we come home, our two dogs (and a fish) are happy and relaxed, well-fed, and well-loved!
Angel was awesome! She kept us updated on our dog's progress throughout the process. Would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for dog training.
We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.
Had lots of patience and walked us through each step. We saw immediate progress after one training session with homework to do on a weekly behavior plan.
So far the experience has been outstanding. 4 lessons down and Tracy Peabody knows her stuff. We have a large breed dog which was a rescue and Tracy helped us with housetraining, and the basic fundamentals - boundaries the dog needs. We will continue to use K9 Rules Services and in fact have referred a neighbour who has 2 large breed dogs that need some training. I would recommend her to anyone that needs training not only for the dog(s) but for the owners as well. Consistency is her moto.
Christina is amazing! She really knows her stuff, is willing to answer any and all questions, and really takes her time training you and your dog. I highly recommend her.
Jennifer is a quality person that knows and relates to animals well. She knows how to handle them on a vetinarian level and cares about each one. She took my dog Alvin,you who was a rescue dog who was out of control and trained him to listen and behave very well. She also gave me a report on Alvin every day and explained the progress that he made. Jennifer is a great and hard worker. She truly has the experience to work with dogs!!
I had just gotten my nearly 1-year-old puppy and realized she was showing aggressive tendencies toward people and other animals in addition to submissive peeing. In a matter of weeks Brett has my dog on the right track. He was the only trainer we had a consultation with that started off showing genuine interest and care for my dog, as well as a energetic, take-control attitude. I would highly recommend Dog-Eze.
We took our 11 weeks old German Shephards to von Asgard and we were not disappointed. Linda and Nick were amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable. We are looking forward to continuing our training with Von Asgard. Thank you Linda and Nick and we will see you soon
Shanna has been great not only working with Rayne, but training us too. She has made such a difference in helping us with a great relationship with our Rayne. Thanks Shanna.
Lee's help in training our dog was nothing less than superb. He is kind yet firm and was very attentive to our special circumstances. We will work with him in the future!
I hired Quinn to work with my Boston Terrier mix (Lulu) who was a nightmare on a leash. She constantly pulled and had leash aggression issues. I purchased a package of personal training sessions and have been extremely happy with the results. The training was for me, as much as it was for Lulu. Quinn was really flexible and super easy to work with. Our training sessions started at home but we soon branched out to places like Petco and eventually downtown Dunedin. Lulu has come a long way since her first training session. She now knows several commands and walks nicely beside me on her leash. We are still working to improve her confidence when meeting new dogs on a leash but I continue to see improvement with each new outing. If you have a pup in need of manners, I highly recommend Quinn.
