About

Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!

About

Joyce did an amazing job with our two dogs, Dicey & Tipper. Before we sent them to her, walking them was nearly impossible. Joyce worked her magic and got them to walk side by side with no leash-pulling. She is an extremely knowledgeable dog trainer and is very patient. Our dogs love her! The best is that she sends daily pictures and updates. We know that our dogs are well cared for and loved when they go to Joyce. I highly recommend her for both dog-sitting and dog-training. Thank you Joyce!

About

I have been taking classes from Dan Ratay with American Idogs since the summer of 2010. I had tried several other dog training classes, but they were always repetitive and dull after awhile. Daniel introduced me to clicker training which was new to me at the time, and it turned out to be a very useful tool. He uses only positive reinforcement (something else that set him apart from the other classes I looked into). How can I take the same class for 2 years now?? Many of his students are returning students session after session, because we always learn something new. Each class is built upon the basics we have learned, but always has a challenging new twist to make it interesting, to keep us thinking, and to practice with the dogs at home. Also, what I really like about Daniel is that he covers the topic of dog behavior as well to help us understand and read our dogs better. We talk about how certain dogs react during class as examples to understand what he is talking about. By doing this, it allows us to apply what we are learning outside of class, where it really matters. And most of all, classes are FUN!!! It is an environment where we can feel free to ask questions because many times, other people can learn from them too. It is not competitive like some other dog training classes, and we are all there to help each other. Every time I go, I have fun and I know the dogs do too.

About

Robin from Bark Busters Home Dog Training came out to our house yesterday to work with us and our Golden Retriever, Randy. Randy has just turned one year old and is just nuts! He was always jumping, running to the front door when the door bell rang, barking at the front window, and still having potty issues in the house. Robin is great! First, she observed Randy's natural behavior, then explained everything that we would need to control Randy and turn him into a great dog. As it turns out, Randy was not the problem, we were! We didn't know how to tell Randy what we would like him to do. After Robin taught us our new "how to speak and act dog" information, the magic started to happen. We went to the front door, had someone ring the doorbell, and Randy stayed away until we asked him to come over and say "Hi". We learned how to keep him from going crazy at the front window. Jumping is now a thing of the past. On top of that, Robin went over a very clear and complete review of our "potty issues" with Randy and I sure that will be a thing of the past shortly. Bottom line, if you need your dog trained, get it done right and call Bark Busters!
