Hired Maureen for dog training. She is very good at what she does and down to earth and friendly. She even got my male chihuahua to sit! Having her back for more lessons.
David Ochoa, in my opinion, is probably one of the best dog trainers I have had the pleasure to work with. I have some physical limitations, that he was able to address & modify to my particular needs, while teaching me a different approach to train my 73 pound black lab mix named Churchill (he also helped me with my 13 pound dog, Winston). I had had several bad falls while walking Churchill. I desperately need help to stop Churchill lunging at barking aggressive dogs. David explained what I had to do, why I needed to think like an alpha canine, and how I was to implement the corrections with Churchill. David's knowledge about dogs is incredible; he truly understands what he is doing & his love of dogs is clearly seen. Just trust him and remember you must be the top dog in the house. I highly recommend David, as does my spouse! Already, after 2 days, I have gotten compliments on how good Churchill is behaving. David said I could call him at any time if I had any further questions about handling my dogs. He knows what he is doing!!
Andy was excellent and our family really liked onsite one on one training with our dog. We are on our way to a well behaved dog. :) Looking forward to joing the group lessons soon. Highly recommend Andy's help to anyone struggling with doggy behavioural issues.
I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.
Luis is very professional and takes his job seriously. He knows his stuff and does an excellent job with the training. My dog loves Luis, and we both have enjoyed working with him. I am very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend him!
Alison did a wonderful job taking care of our dog and cat. Not only was she attentive and detailed, Allison also sent us near-daily updates while we were away. It was great hearing from her, and helped us feel at ease while we were away. We would recommend Allison to anyone looking for a housesitter.
Julie has been a blessing for my wife and I. We met her and immediately liked her. She has proven to be reliable, trustworthy and most important....great with our 2 dogs Teddy and Buffy. Julie spends time with them, walks and pets them. We trust her so much that we gave her the alarm code and entrance to our house. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone wanting a dog sitter/walker. Ian & Melissa, Bradenton, Fl.
We adopted a very shy and undersocialized young dog from a local rescue. With training and group socialization led by Chelsea @ Canine Connection, we were able to transform into a confident and friendly little girl. We will always be grateful for the help she provided (and continues to provide) for us.
Rose has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and patience has exceeded my expectations. She is what a real dog trainer should be. I have spent a lot of money in the past with others with no end result and after just a short time I have already seen great results that continue even after she leaves our home. My Pitbull and Bull Dog love her and are growing to have much better manners. We are very grateful for the work she has put into the training and educating us to be better owners. Will recommend to friends and family without a doubt!
Angel was great with our puppy and the training has certainly help us and our dogs quality of life! She's friendly and professional it was a pleasure dealing with her. Dennis
Martee always goes above and beyond when she cares for our 3 pups. They love her so much and we have total peace of mind when we're gone. It's wonderful to have her not only watch the dogs but also housesit. We plan trips every 2-3 months and Martee is always on time, handles emergencies with ease, communicates often with us while we're gone. We always come home to a spotless home and happy pups. She's the best!!
I hired Christine to help with my sons two year old German Shepherd Odin. Odin is a great dog but had become very hard to walk due to his constant pulling and barking. Christine helped me learn new ways to train Odin and they worked right from the very beginning. Odin wanted to learn it was just me not knowing the right ways to get started. Chirstine was always right on time, and her enthusiasm and energy were contagious for both Odin and I. My son is now continuing to work with Christine and we look forward to bringing Odin to a group walk soon.
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.
Ali is a lovely person who clearly loves animals and loves working with them. My dog is crazy about her and I am happy to have found someone like her to entrust my fur baby to. Can't say enough good things about her.
We have been using K-9 Coach for about 7 years. We had a new puppy after the death of one of our two dogs. The puppy was being very badly treated by the remaining dog and uncontrollable, probably in mourning. We used the K-9 Coach, Mike and got great results. We now have two very well trained dogs that are now therapy dogs at Hospice. We keep going to classes for socialism for our two dogs and on Saturday morning they sit at the door about 1/2 hour prior to our departure as they are so anxious to go to social class.cc
Our dog, Daryl, had a wonderful experience here. We used doggie day care, boarding and grooming and all went very well. We wish them well in Tampa, but am missing them here in Atlanta! Good luck on your new place in Tampa.
Trustworthy(very important when choosing a dog sitter), Reliable(never has turned down a date I've needed her!), and keeps it professional! My dog loves her! Highly recommend Sarah!
Caroline did exceptional work with an aggressive shelter dog that had potential but needed to relax around people and other dogs. It worked: Athena was adopted about 6 months ago and is settled and happy in a wonderful forever home where she's cared for, loved and appreciated.
Brad is our trainer he is wonderful.. very firm and clear on what to correct. I had a 5 months old German Shepherd that was out of control jumping , biting, no respect. I NEEDED HELP YESTERDAY! After three visits with Brad and doing my home work. Samson is a pleasure to take on walks , around other dogs and guest. Everybody says wow it like unreal . The positive changeffect in him and me .Remember it all the handler and a great trainer. Again a special thanks to brad..
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.
