We had David over within the last 12 hours and we already have a different dog. Tonight was the best time we've had with her since rescuing her in May. She seems happier and less anxious. We are of course ecstatic and are looking forward to conitnuing her training. Our puppy finally feels like a part of the family! Thank you David!
Andy was excellent and our family really liked onsite one on one training with our dog. We are on our way to a well behaved dog. :) Looking forward to joing the group lessons soon. Highly recommend Andy's help to anyone struggling with doggy behavioural issues.
Michele is an incredibly talented pet sitter and animal lover. Our Emmet loved every minute Michele came to spend time with him! Not only did she play with him, she also began training him on basic commands, fed our fish AND got our mail for us! I put 100% trust into Michele and gave her complete freedom with training Emmet. I am certainly glad I did and look forward to many more visits and pet sitting opportunities!
So far the experience has been outstanding. 4 lessons down and Tracy Peabody knows her stuff. We have a large breed dog which was a rescue and Tracy helped us with housetraining, and the basic fundamentals - boundaries the dog needs. We will continue to use K9 Rules Services and in fact have referred a neighbour who has 2 large breed dogs that need some training. I would recommend her to anyone that needs training not only for the dog(s) but for the owners as well. Consistency is her moto.
Ron Pfierman saved the life of my niece's puppy, Daisy. We are so thankful for Ron and what he did for Daisy. We are a family of dogs. I have 2, our mom has 2 and our dad has 3 and Tracey has Daisy. We just couldn't consider putting a family member down unless there were no other option. Ron was our only option and he saved Daisy's life. He does not know this - but in our household's, Ron is known as Uncle Ron. Out of the kindness of his heart and his love for dogs, he took on our little Cujo. He did not do this as a business person. He probably lost money on little Daisy because of the amount of effort he had to put into rehabilitating her. I would recommend Ron to anyone for any dog training. Not just special cases. He helped me with my dogs . Not only did he save Daisy's life, he has taught me to be a better dog owner. I learned things from just watching him work with my dogs. Thank you, again, Uncle Ron. Sincerely - Jamie, Tracey, Brooke, Daisy, Lily and Moose.
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!
I trained my pup Juke with Mike for a few Months. Unfortunately I had to move away from the area and found another trainer. I found another trainer after moving precisely because Mike helped my life and Jukes life so much with our time training with him. He is a kind, gentle, repetitive human being and that's why he gets great results. I would reccomend anyone who wants to get the most out of their dogs or correct unwanted behaviors to give the K9 Coach a try. You will not regret it. Look up my google review for details on my experience with him. Forever thankful, Omar and Juke
We took our 11 weeks old German Shephards to von Asgard and we were not disappointed. Linda and Nick were amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable. We are looking forward to continuing our training with Von Asgard. Thank you Linda and Nick and we will see you soon
Our 6 month old Shepherd/Lab mix is training with Rudy & Mike. I couldn't be more happy with the interaction I've seen this far!! Thank you, so much!
Jeanine is an exceptionally patient, knowledgeable and compassionate dog trainer. Jeanine has trained two of our Portuguese Water Dogs over the past 11 years . We have utilized Jeanine's services for private training, group classes, personal and professional advice. Jeanine's been very flexible with our training and even provided sessions in my husband's office-she's very accommodating. Jeanine's demeanor, along with even her own dog's temperaments, lend itself to successful training. Jeanine has visited our home, provided suggestions for new puppy transitions as well as acclimating our elder PWD to the new puppy. Jeanine also provides numerous resources for various holistic and superior pet products. We highly recommend Jeanine for a comprehensive, passionate canine expert! Thank you Jeanine for your insight over the past 11 years!
Sandi really listens to you & your needs. Then addresses them with positive training. Very knowledgeable!
Brandy is patient with my labs. They are older dogs who were in serious need of training. I had thought all hope was lost but not so! They are following directions, playing well together and I can open my door without a scene. This happened with simple commands and patience. Brandy had to teach US how to be dog parents and lead our dogs. Still a work in progress but we can see positive results. Thank you!!!!!
Though new to training as a business of her own she has trained dogs for years. She is knowledgeable, patient and calm a great combination for trading a Portugeese Water Dog. I am looking forward to a well trained dog though our relationship.
Angeldogs offers private lessons where we come to your home. Each lesson lasts at least one hour, but have been known to last two or three. From basic obedience to behavior problems, all breeds, ages, and issues are handled with positive yet assertive leadership skills. Angeldogs serves all of Sarasota County, Englewood is included of course. As a founding member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (A.P.D.T.) all of the lessons are based on positive reinforcement training. No use of choke chains nor prong collars. We have over 27 years of experience in behavior modification and have found this to be the most effective, fun, and lasting way to train. Our main concentration is in training you and every one who handles the dog on a regular basis. That way every one may be consistent in doing the same thing, the same way, so your canine family member will learn, even when the trainer is not around. I give a 10% discount for millitary and family.
I offer positive, family friendly dog training. I have trained over 300 families and their dogs. I know that many dogs end up in shelters due to behavioral issues. I use scientifically based positive reinforcement to invest the owners in proper training to ensure a long and happy relationship based on trust and love. I train group classes sponsored by Suncoast Humane Society and other group classes for the Greater Venice Dog Club. I have many private students and am recommended by local veterinarians. I specialize in working with shy and reactive dogs. I believe in continuing education and have attended dog seminars and conferences across the nation. I am an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator and work closely with Suncoast Humane Society's Pet Therapy teams.
I love dogs! I've owned several different breeds throughout my life and will never be without one or two. I know how positive feedback behavior works and use this method with my dogs. I understand how they think and can handle almost any situation with good results. I am drug free and am willing for you to do a background check on me if you'd like to. I have reliable transportation and will always be on time.
I do pet sitting, walking, training, etc. I have loved animals since childhood, and it has always been my passion to nurture them and teach others how to do so as well!
Seeing the look on a client's face when we achieve the potential in thier pet....
I am a private dog trainer, private groomer, and veterinary technician. I will take care of all your furry friends' needs, whatever they may be.
I am training at your home. I work on obedience, special needs, lifetime commitment, problem solving and housebreaking for any age and any breed.
