David is a phenomenal trainer. We have a 1 1/2 year old pit mix rescue. We had only had him a week when David came over for training. In just one session, our dog made major strides in all areas of training. David went above and beyond expectations and even helped us with an incident at a dog park where our dog was attacked by another dog, by showing us how to safely separate the dogs and protect our dog from the aggressor dog. After following David's instructions for the following week we have continued to see improvements. We get complements about our well behaved dog when we are out in public. I recommend that anyone looking for a dog trainer contact David at A Best Friend Certified Dog Training.

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.

Michele came to my home first for a meet and greet. Not quite so easy at my home since I have a dog, 5 cats, 3 goats and 2 horses. She spent about 2 hours with me and acclimating herself and Barkley (her very well trained dog) to me and my babies. She really paid attention to what I needed. IE the goats sticking heads through fence and getting stuck, my dog being possessive over her things. She made me and my animals feel very comfortable. The day came to leave and all I did was worry. Michele sent numerous texts, photos and even videos through her whole stay while I was away. Very much put my mind at ease. Barkley had my older dog playing like a puppy. Then to top all off, when I returned home, my house looked like the day I left. She had all the litter boxes cleaned. All the animals had fresh food and water. I very much recommend Michele for your pet sitting and house sitting needs.

Sue was great to work with and immediately put our minds at ease from the first phone call. We are currently vacationing in the Bradenton area for the month of January and required a dog sitter during a day trip to Miami. Sue responded to our request on Thumbtack and the rest is history. She took great care of our Miniature Schnauzer while we were away for the day. He was walked, fed and given lots of love and attention. The photos and texts with updates was reassuring and a real bonus. We would highly recommend Sue and would definitely reach out to her again if we need a dog sitter in the future.

Martee did a great job looking after our dog/house. She was punctual, reliable and caring towards our pet. She even did some laundry while we were away, which was very much appreciated. I would have no problem recommending her to someone else. Sue Fox

I don't even know where to begin with how pleased I am with Ron and Melissa at Aztec dog training. Our Australian Shepherd Darwin was out of control. He was a runner, we couldn't get him to sit, he would nip, he growled at the kids, he really was the pack leader at our house. Recently he escaped from our backyard and went after a neighbors minpin. Luckily no one was hurt, but my husband and I were at the end of our rope. Darwin couldn't be in the house during the day because we were worried for the kids and he couldn't be walked on a leash because he could go after another dog. I called Ron, and I was desperate to get Darwin help. It was either get him help or rehome him. Ron immediately made me feel comfortable just talking with him. We lived 3 hours away in Lake Worth, FL and asked if we could bring Darwin that night at 11pm and to my amazement they agreed and waited up for us to bring Darwin. Right when we got to Aztec and Ron handled Darwin, I could tell we did the right thing. The dog immediately seemed different. Darwin stayed for 3 weeks, and I'm positive we got a lot more then we paid for. When we came to pick Darwin up he was walking on a leash without choking himself and he wasn't pulling the trainer everywhere, he was calm. It was amazing. He sat, he laid down, he even stayed. Even more astonishing, there was another dog there and he didn't even seem to notice. Darwin seemed to have so much respect for Ron. As if this wasn't enough, we were given a training session with him and written instructions. We spend 10 minutes a day working with him and everyday we see improvement. We are even integrating him into our family. He's actually in the house almost all day! I'm also very pleased with the follow up care. Any time I need advice or have a problem I text Ron and he immediately gets back to us, day or night. He always has the answer. And believe me I have texted upset and confused and lost. The support is invaluable. Ron and Melissa really know this profession. If you have a dog that needs training in south florida, whether aggressive, skitish, or just general obedience, Aztec Dog Training is the place to take your beloved pup. Melissa and Ron we can't thank you enough for your help with Darwin.

Our dog has severe fear aggression, he will attack anything that is strange to him including people and other dogs. We tried PetCo and another trainer and had no luck. Von Asgard helped our dog. It took a lot of hard work and time but he is much more controlled and confident. He still has much work ahead of him, but the improvement is promising. The location is outdoor cages with indoors at night. When we dropped our dog off at first, I was very skeptical and concerned that it wasn't going to help. I am proud to say they were wonderful, did what they promised, and kept us up to date on his progress.

Kristina has watched my dog twice now. I came over filled out a small info sheet about my dog and was able to see where my dog Taz would be staying. She has a beautiful huge backyard for Taz to run around in! Way better than a kennel and having my dog locked up in a cage! She did an excellent job! Pricing was ideal and she is reliable. Whenever I need a pet sitter she is my go to!

Finally a trainer that knows what he’s doing!!!! I have been to petco training and even hired 3 other trainers to help with my dogs and have had horrible results even having to take my dog to emergency vet with hives because the other trainer stressed him out so bad. Right away I knew this guy was different. He took control and knew what he was seeing. My dogs have responded great and now listen and behave on command without being bribed with treats. I am sooo impressed!!! He is very flexible around your schedule and I wouldn’t recommend any other trainer. This guy knows what he’s doing!

Rudy has had our 2nd Gen. German Shepherd puppy and has taken a very head strong dog thru basic training and I can not say enough good things about his program and procedures to bring this dog into what we wanted him to be. Now we are going to let him go thru the protection and aggression part of his program. I can't say more about this trainer but to tell you if you want your dog trained right talk to Rudy. Without any abuse to a head strong dog he is the man for you. I plan on getting another Shepherd and no one would I consider other than him. I could not be more pleased or satisfied with his program working with my dog and my wife Debbie's baby.

Eileen has worked on my horses and my dogs. All the animals love her! One of my horses injured himself in a pasture accident on his rear leg. He had a very deep cut. Eileen came to work on him once a month for several months. It really helped with his healing. You would never know how bad the injury really was except by the scar. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very helpful when your animals have health issues. She loves to share her knowledge.

A balanced dog is a happy dog. To balance your dog, it needs not only care but long for what you educate, socialize and train. It's never too early or too late for you to teach your dog some tricks. The benefits you will gain will be invaluable as training serves as mental stimulation for the dog and often to the owner himself. It will help you meet your dog and strengthen the relationship you have with him. In addition, you'll be surprised at how quickly your dog can learn if you do it properly and positively.

About

Someday, I aspire to get into a school for veterinary medicine, and I love anything with animals. I can do overnight sitting or just visiting, walking, park visiting, bathing and the essential feeding and watering.
