    Brian is the best. Our boy Benny picked up the training easily, and Brian had him doing things that flat out blew my mind. He was always on time, and very helpful. We definitely recommend!

    Cliff was great with our girl Jengo. He taught us just as much as he taught her. He was very patient with us and focused on anything we commented on that we struggled with as it came up. She is like night and day compared to when we started the 4 sessions. I would definitely recommend Cliff to anyone that asks for a trainer. Little more practice of what we were taught and we are golden. Thank you Cliff so much!

    We sent our 12 week old chihuahua-terrier mix puppy, Finn, to Lisa's 2 week Board & Train program. Lisa collected Finn at our house taking his pen, bed, food & treats with her so he'd feel perfectly comfortable at her house (& it was obvious that he did!). During the 2 weeks, Lisa kept in contact, sent many pictures, videos of training sessions & always answered all of our questions & texts. After 2 weeks, Finn came home with an excellent basis in many commands including sit, down, stay, come, & how to ring a bell when he needed to go outside to potty. Lisa knew exactly how to use his energy & intellect in the best possible way to give him a great foundation. When Lisa brought Finn home she spent almost 2 hours showing us how she taught him the commands & how we should keep the momentum going. She also came back a month later for a follow up visit; again spending several hours with us going over any questions or concerns we had. We are so glad we hired Lisa to Board & Train Finn!

    Richard A.

    We love Judy and so does our Chihuahua puppy, Lola. Lola was acting aggressive at times - when being examined by two different vets. Judy suggested having Lola in her home for two to observe her over a long period of time and to help with house training. This was very positive for both Lola and us. Lola has made great progress with house training (only a few mistakes) and seem calmer, since her return from Judy's. I highly recommend Judy for pet sitting and for training

    I am BLOWN AWAY at how amazing Applause for Paws is! I was impressed since I first spoke to Dee - she was professional, accomodating, and she was reasonable. She was realistic in the goals she had for my dogs. She was also very patient. I had a LOT of questions and she handled them like a pro. Then, I had my boyfriend speak to her.. And he had even more questions! What stood Dee/Applause for Pause out from the rest - I truly believe that they love the dogs. They are dog lovers and you can really tell. I read up on their reviews and they have a sparkling reputation - I can see why!! They are also very safe - vaccines have to be up to date, etc. Then the babies were off to obedience school - trust my dogs needed professional help. They are adult rescue huskies. They are set in their ways, had no formal training their whole lives, etc. What I love the most is the daily report cards we get. Julia was great! I was impressed because she really knew our dogs and their personalities and worked around each one. She gave us a lot of insight, advice and information. Also, I truly believe that she (and the whole team) care about all of the dogs that come in. I actually wish I can give more than just 5 stars.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Home Dog Training of South Florida

(3 reviews)

We help our clients feel great about their dogs and themselves. That is what we do and that is what we love!

Dogs are a domesticated form of gray wolves. Unlike their ancestors, dogs are friendly to humans and have the ability to learn tricks from their masters. But if your pet starts to become unfriendly and manifests the wild and aggressive behavior it has inherited from the wolves, don't hesitate to seek professional help.

Bruce and his wife, Robin, own a local branch of Bark Busters, which is one of the largest dog training companies in the world. This husband-and-wife team of professional dog trainers has been certified and trained in using methods that dogs would naturally understand.

Unlike many other training companies, we do not use clickers, treats or anything that would be harmful and frightening to the dog.

Patricia, one of the teams past clients, attested to the effectiveness of their training methods.

For [them] to correct Luke's behavior in a very short amount of time was a miracle. [They] not only explained in human language with analogies, but [they] also used dog language that could be understood.

Hence, when your dog starts behaving aggressively like a wolf, who you gonna call? Bark Busters, the largest dog training company in the world.
