Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!
Franco is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is amazing with my pit mix. His training is not only with the dog but with the owners as well. His knowledge is second to none and there were immediate results after the first lesson. After week 2 we have seen DRASTIC positive results. I recommend Franco to any and everyone who has any time of behavioral or psychological issues with their dog. He is the guy to fix the problems.
I had a very informative first phone call with Wendy and she gave me an important tips to apply to the training of my puppy. Next week we'll have a first lesson.
Rosie has been training our goldendoodle (Derby) off an and on for a few months and has done a great job. He responds very well to the training and looks forward to her visits (and treats). I recommend Rosie for those looking for 1on1 training for their puppy.
Jane is an excellent dog trainer, although I believe she helped me more than my crazy wheatie. I was really impressed with how much knowledge she has and patience. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. She showed me some tools I can use to use while training my puppy. You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!
As the mom of two border collies, I want to make certain my kids are in the best of care. I have an older dog (13) and a rambunctious puppy (9 months). Danielle is responsible, kind, flexible, understands neurotic dog moms and based on the photos I receive from the dog park - fun! A five paw rating from our family!
She really helped with training my dog Bailey.
Dogs and training are in Erinn's DNA and you will see that when you and your dog meet her. Our puppy Vizsla was more than we could handle. A bundle of well intentioned energy that needed some software rewrites. An athlete that needed coaching badly. Erinn is that coach. Our dog is hard wired to hunt and pursue anything that moves (lizards, leaves, balls) but gets in the zone. Erinn now helps us control the zone and all behavior. We didn't want to train that away, just channel it. Also other indoor vs outdoor behavior including proper house breaking. All the usual commands, plus where and how to sit, come, down, up, fetch. Drop it....all of the must have commands into the head of our stubborn puppy! It's clear Erinn loves doing this. The puppy also loves Erinn. Thats not to say she isn't serious, she is. But the manner is terrific as you'll see. She sends us videos of the progress which helps when you board your pup and miss her. She works with the owners to train them too if needed. Just terrific.
Kathy responded to my request very quickly. she immediately answered all the questions I had, and was very pleasant to talk to. she is very knowledgeable on the information I needed. she gave clear instructions that were simply to follow, and techniques that will help me in training my pet. I would highly recommend anyone who is in need of an excellent trainer to contact her.
Puppy Training for my 14 week old Siberian Husky was simple and easy with Carol. Her laid back, loving personality worked well with our home. It amazed me how fast she trained my puppy and the simple things she taught me that trained ME to be a better pet owner. I HIGHLY recommend Carol Harris!
She has an excellent knowledge of how to read dogs and their body language, also on how to cure specific problems. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help training their dogs.
Kelly is fantastic. She is great with pups. She went out of her way to understand our Hound and helped us find a way to combat most of her negative behaviors. Tiger is a completely different dog after our sessions. My relationship with my pup has changed in the best way possible and I owe it to Kelly. Thank you!!
I have a blue Weimaraner who weighed 65 lbs by 1 year old. She had trouble with impulse control and constantly pulled when walking her. Every person and dog we encountered was her new BFF! I am petite and had trouble keeping her from jumping on passers by and from being dragged down the street. Brianna walked my dog and taught me techniques and gave me the tools to train my large puppy. It took a while to train my willful and high energy dog but I can now safely walk my full grown Weim, confident that we will enjoy our walk. Brianna is wonderful with animals, has a gift for working with dogs and training both the dog’s behavior and people on how to train their dog. Brianna is caring, knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. in my opinion, her fees are very affordable. She has also helped me through my dog’s skin rash issues by recommending skin remedies which have been helpful as I do not like giving her antibiotics. I cannot say enough good things about Brianna and highly recommend her. She has been my Dog Whisperer for the past 2 years!
Our experience with Cindy was amazing. We learned not only how to train our dog but how to train ourselves!! So many things we had no idea we were doing were actually interferring with our dog training! Our Moe went from having no idea how to follow any commands to being able to follow all the basic and not so basic commands. We always get comments while on walks as to how well behaved he is!! We have all come a long way thanks to Cindy at KK's K9. We highly reccomend this company ..... kathy & erwin (and moe!)
Amazing experience! You can definitely tell that he has many years experience with training animals. I am thankful I invested the money in training my dog with Carlos.
We have a 5 month old Goldendoodle that is a bundle of energy. Needed help with housebreaking, obedience, crating and leash walking. Marti assessed our dogs behavior and was confident she could work with her. We opted to send our dog with Marti for a 10 day boot camp and board her at her home. When our dog Harley came home Marti discussed all facets of her training and took the time to teach us hand commands and the proper cue technique to continue reinforcing what she has learned. Harley is 10 times more obedient, is a pleasure to walk, sits, stays and lays down on command. I highly recommend Marti for her knowledge and training skills. If you want a dog that you can be proud of give Marti a try you'll be glad you did!
We highly recommend calypso canine for training. We had our yorkie puppy that was so nervous always around strangers and other dogs trained and he is like a completely different puppy now after just 2 weeks training so far. 5 stars!!!
My puppy Skye loves Apryl so much
He was outstanding with his training and I couldn't be happier I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to train there pets
