Maureen is absolutely wonderful to work with. She was very responsive, friendly, and easy to coordinate with. I recently completed a 6-week long puppy class with my dog and I learned more from Maureen in our initial evaluation than I did in the entire class. I appreciate her patience and knowledge and look forward to working with her in the future.
Our 21 month German Shepherd Rescue lacked skills in socialization at the park, car manners and needed at tune up in walking on a leash without pulling, exiting and entering our home & car on command versus the German Shepherd making that decision. In two hours, goal reached and written instructions received help us stay consistent with daily goals & training. My husband and I highly recommend Mr. Ochoa.
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.
I learned more in one visit about dog behavior than I ever gained during years of classes at local dog training clubs. Absolutely a top notch, wonderful trainer. So thankful to have found Gentle Touch Dog Training.
Luis is just awesome!! I cannot say enough about our experience with him and SunsetK9 Training! Our puppy, Marlo, took to him and responded to him immediately and in no time he had her doing the fundamentals, all in a positive reinforcement manner. I would highly recommend Luis to anyone who wants results with their pet, not to mention how reasonable the hourly rate is, so much value for the price!
Lisa Morrissey did a great job helping me discover Buddy's hidden talents, like balance-beam walking. She's very creative with her training; her ability is well demonstrated by her own two loving pups. She even brought a variety of treats for the dogs to try to see what would work best with them. Highly recommend for trick dog training.
Had a great time attending this training with Brittany and Nancy. Donut had so much fun socializing and learned all the tricks. Individual attention is given to the puppies in these small classes. Highly recommend working with Highland Canine Training!
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.
I am very pleased with B Paws-itive Pet Dog Training. We have a little rescue pet diagnosed with both fear and territorial aggression. Our veterinarian referred us to Angela. She has been so wonderful, and patient with our little Sami, and myself. I would highly recommend her!
Lauri was on time every day like clockwork! Our dog was taken care of very well. She would text updates every day to let us know how things went. We would have continued her service if we were not moving. Highly recommend her for your dog walking needs
I just wanted to say Thank You for all of your help with Louie. Your professional and knowledgeable approach to lessons have been invaluable and your commitment throughout has been exemplary. You have given sound, solid, and reliable advice at every stage of training. Your positive attitude with the handler and the dog make the classes very enjoyable
Sarah goes above and beyond when working with dogs and owners. I adopted an obstinate but very affectionate Siberian Husky who had issues with resource guarding. Nakota began attending doggie day care with Sarah and soon became well socialized and much more obedient and responsive. She teaches owners to employ repetitive, consistent positive reinforcement because we often need as much training as the dogs do. I wholeheartedly recommend Tripp's Training for dogs (and people).
Thank you Sarah for the amazing service ,you are professional, punctual and so nice to work with ..... A+ :) I will highly recommend you , It was such a comfortable feeling to know my dogs are in such great care ! Thanks again
We picked our puppy from Sharon after interviewing many GSD breeders in FL. The attention, handling, and socialization that she gives the pups shows in how wonderful our dog is. Amazing temperament, and incredibly handsome!
Fantastic trainer, i choose her to do all my clients puppies, because she works individually taking in consideration each puppy needs, she socializes them and does a great Job!!
Professional Trainer, after neighbors witnessed the training with my American Pit Bull Terrier, they signed up for classes for their dog that had leash anxiety, and pulling on lease issues. Within a few classes the dog's behavior is now amazing. Wish I would have taken classes years ago.
We got our puppy Dexter from Robin. He is such a wonderful dog, sweet, very social and friendly, not to forget, cutest in town, breaks hearts wherever he goes :) Dealing with Robin has been a pleasure. Still keep in touch and she is always happy to respond any questions we have (its my first dog so I had many in the beginning.. ) We are thinking of getting another puppy when our baby is bigger and we'd love to adopt another from Robin.
Stephani was great! She took the time to understand and observe our dog Kobe. Explained her observations thoroughly to us and came up with an action plan to help us. She also keeps us updated with picture of our Kobe. Highly recommend Stephani!
Amy's expertise came into our lives at an incredibly important time -- a few months after we had our first baby. Our beloved dog was not always so lovely with everyone. He was very protective and came across as aggressive to a lot of our visitors. Amy worked with us to develop strategies that accommodates our needs, as well as the needs of dog. She explained behavior to us that we had never fully understood. Most importantly, she helped us understand how to create a home that is safe for everyone: our baby, our visitors, and our dog. I only wish I had met her earlier so we could have done puppy classes. I cannot recommend Amy highly enough. She has a deep understanding of dog behavior and her training program is compassionate for the dog and the parents.
I have taken several group classes like Fun Scent Games and Rally Obedience with my dogs at Courteous Canine, with Angelica as the instructor. She makes sure the dogs and the humans have so much fun in her classes! She is willing to answer any questions from students and always has great ideas and advice they can use with their dogs. She is so joyful when teaching - she gets excited and she gets the dogs excited so they enjoy learning and have success. I have also met with her for a private behavior consultation regarding my dog that is reactive to other dogs. I learned so much about how to help my dog and make both our lives much more stress free!
What an awesome experience, Erica was super attentive, took amazing care of our fur baby with daily updates and photos and taught her so much! I HIGHLY recommend Erica, your dog gets one on one attention as well as socialization with other dogs. She took Rellie everywhere with her, multiple dog parks, lunch outings, everywhere. Such a happy puppy! Another big thing, when we went to pick her up she showed us a scratch on Rellies ear and said she confessed she wasn't sure where it came from but had been watching it and taking care of it, in reality it had happened to Rellie on our watch (an evil cat) the day before we dropped her off! Not her fault at all! Her honesty and attention to detail and our pups well being made a huge impression and I will only be using Erica from this point forward.
