David Ochoa is working with our German Shepherd four a couple weeks now. His expertise and knowledge is amazing. He has been helping us get our dog to listen and follow commands and is an outstanding trainer. I would recommend him to anyone!
Cynthia was awesome! Very knowledgable and I could tell she cared about our situation. We have a baby German Shepherd, a 2 year old pit/something else and a 9 year old puggle. The pit has been showing a degree of aggression which worried us and made us realize we need to train our dogs better to avoid future issues. In one session she has been a blessing.
Brandi was so wonderful with my rather young and energetic pups that I was amazed! After just the very first visit there were immediate changes that still last. She is so talented! The pups immediately connected with her and she was a positive example for me too. I have had pups my entire life but German Shepherds are a different breed. I went ahead and scheduled several visits because she identified immediately what they needed and she was right on. I have now been able to get some sleep, got them to stop jumping on me and no more chewing. I am pleased and she is a delight to work with....I've already referred two of my friends to her.
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.
Lisa does a fantastic job with my dog. He has learned more service dog jobs thru this trick program. She has made learning fun for my little guy, so he wants to go to class and learn. She has also given me tools to keep training even when we are away from class. I have been to many trainers while we travel, and now we have found the right one for us.
We are in the process of leaving our baby German Shepherd with Brittany. He will be with her for two weeks. She did an evaluation on our dog and totally handled it with professionalism, I was more nervous than she was since our dog has aggression problems. She kept him overnight one time to make sure he will be ok and what a surprise when my husband picked him up and he was just fine, no signs of aggression at all. I have tried so many trainers its not even funny, they were all scared of him. Brittany knows her thing!! Looking forward for the nect step and seen progress with our puppy!!
My 2 year German shepard,Roxie,was almost out of control.Angel trained her for three weeks and was a different dog.I've had 5 German Shepard thru the years and Angel has been the trainer I've usad.
The experience I had with Luis Safe from Safek9 was truly refreshing. His expertise in his field of work along with service he provided me and marly, my dog, with was more than I could have ever expected. While I searched for trainers to help me with marly, who seemed to be untrainable, none were able to succesfuly train marly. In my opinion Safek9 without a doubt is the best trainer in tampa.
I have a 4 year old Dutch Shepherd Roscoe who has having some jealously issues when my sister moved in temporarily. His breed is very protective and used primarily as law enforcement and military working dogs. I never had any aggression issues with him but he began to test the waters with my sister. I never attended any formal training with Roscoe because I honestly thought I would be wasting my time thinking that most trainers in my area would not be used to or comfortable with such a high drive working breed. Browsing though the local paper I came across Jesss picture on the cover with a Dutch Shepherd to my surprise! I was excited to see that a local dog trainer owned and trained her own Dutch. This breed is not for the weak hearted or anyone not willing to be the alpha. Having dominance issues with my sister and Jess being a female who was successful at training this breed I knew I found my solution. I scheduled a session with Jess and had my sister attend. Roscoe typically goes berserk when someone knocks at the door which he did as usual when Jess arrived. I let her in and she immediately distracted him and had him obeying commands within seconds of entering the house. I noticed her observing his behavior and interaction with everyone present. She came up with rules and activities to imply based on her observations to squash the dominance issues. We implemented them and all is well! I have since done tracking training with Jess and continue to work with him. She gave me the tools I needed and I was sad to see her leave Delaware, however she continues to check in and get updates on our progress. Even though we are hundreds of miles away I will always continue to use her as a resource. I highly recommend her to anyone. Get Set has such a broad skill set and training knowledge and I highly recommend them to anyone regardless if you are having problems, need obedience training or competition Shes got it all! A.

Rick Carde helped me develop my working German Shepherds to their full potential in personal protection and ring sport. He is a talented trainer. His individual attention to the specific needs of each dog made all the difference!
A very dedicated breeder and trainer. She consistently produces superior dogs and is always available for questions and help. Even years after the sale. You can't go wrong buying a pup from her!
Robin is by far the most experience dog trainer I have ever met. She made the crate and potty training for my 9 weeks old puppy like a breeze. I followed Robin guideline religiously and after one week, my puppy was totally house broken and running to the door for potty. My puppy slept in her crate for 7 to 8 hours, walking well for the puppy on the leash in less than a week. . Robin has been there for us anytime we had question. She is so caring that I feel she is my best friend not just a trainer. If you want to enjoy your puppy without any extra stress, just call her. You won't regret it.
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!

We decided to send our year old German shepherd "Lad" to Mary for boarding and training - WOW best describes how well trained he was when we saw him 2 weeks later. He continues to progress on a daily basis. Thanks Mary!!!
My wife and I have been using Donna and her daughter Shelley since April of 2014, and are thrilled with them. Whether it's just for feeding, walking and playtime, or for overnights when we're out of town, they are reliable, punctual, and very affectionate with our big German Shepherd puppy. Sasha is always excited to see one of them, which is the best endorsement of all. We would highly recommend them to take care of your 4-legged babies.
What a wonderful experience to have such a competent professional pet setter take care of my cats. She followed instructions to the letter for the three days she took care of them at my home. Her texts to me during this time gave me piece of mind that they adjusted to her immediately. I came home to happy animals that had food,potties clean, and fresh water. I will definitely have her take care of them again.
I have used AmPm Pet Service, to train my 106 lb french mastiff not to jump on people has they enter my house. Sean and his wife Gena were in my house and worked with Zoe for about 30 minutes and she no longer had the problem. Of course now it is up to me to continue the training. Sean and Gena are very professional. I have had to call them at the last minute to come and walk my Zoe when I can't get home, they are always prompt and even bring in the mail and make sure she has water before they leave. I could to on and on just use them yourself and you will see what I mean they are awesome.
Lane has a true understanding of dogs. I Met lane walking around downtown Dunedin when my GSD (German Shepherd dog) was about 4 months old(about a year ago). We spoke of a mutual love for the breed and how both of our grandparents were involved in K9 training (my grandfather was a k9 judge). Lane never pushed a service our a sales pitch on me he asked me some questions about my GSD. I let him know I was working with a trainer but at times my puppy seemed to rule us. He then told me he moved to the area and is training dogs here and if i ever needed help to call him (His expertise includes guard dogs, behaviors, advance training). During the past year we still were working with the original trainer who was very good as well. Something was missing though and we both felt that we taught my GSD everything we could but, he had a hurdle. You see my GSD would see other dogs and become over stimulated and hard to control and this started at about 7 months old ( He is a very intelligent and high drive GSD who's a sweetheart but stubborn.). He would jump on everybody not listen and tend to be just a brat. With dogs though he would bark aggressively and scare other people even though he just wanted to play he also seemed to be scared of them. So my trainer said let's take some time off and figure out something later. My wife and I talked about how he just needed to age and mellow but I felt this could not wait. I also mentioned how we met Lane and we should call him, but we were feeling a little discouraged and felt it may be better to wait. The next afternoon on the way to the beach I saw Lane walking two dogs and told my wife it's a sign let's just call him and try it. Lane gave us a free consultation that was over an hour. He then gave us his feedback and gave us pricing that was very competitive to any big box store but his is one on one. The difference with Lane though has been dramatic already, he truly has a passion and love for his career. After just a few weeks my GSD has improved with not only his old training but new training as well. My GSD is walking better on leash, reacting less and learning to be a companion and not pushing to be an alpha. Lanes knowledge of reading a dog has been honed since a young age and it shows. My GSD not only loves to go to training but now acts as if Lane is part of the family. My GSD is calmer and now looks for me to command him. We are not perfect by any means (its only been 4 weeks) but I truly believe with Carters k9s my GSD will be perfect and a dog that my grandfather would adore. Ask about the tree stump!
