I have a 3 year old rescued Pitbull/Labrador Mix and he’s just terrified of everything, I lost all hope of getting him trained but Jorge decided to take on the challenge and I’ve been very impressed with the little improvements I’m already seeing with him, we work on walking and focusing his attention to me and it’s going fantastic, Jorge takes the time to explain and teach you along the way for more lasting results, I think that’s wonderful, most dog trainers I’ve talked to wanted to take my dog for 3 weeks and then teach me everything he learned in an hour, I don’t learn that way. Jorge teaches me and my dog at the same time and takes the time to explain everything that he’s doing and why he is doing it! I’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a trainer, by far the best one we’ve talked to!
Ashley is just what we were looking for, very clear and thorough. Both our dogs love her and look forward to her visit. Ashley would be highly recommended by us as a good dog and people trainer
I just wanted to share our experience with Todd and South Orlando Dog Training. We had an incident with our dog Bella- she's terrified of skateboards. Usually we just avoid skateboards all together- but on a walk, a guy came up behind us on a hover board which makes no noise- and cut us off. Bella got scared and bit the guy- not doing major harm... but it easily could've ended very badly. The guy was apologetic and said he should've known better than to come up behind a dog like that. It was at that time that we knew we needed help- we NEVER want to relive that situation again. It's our job to protect her from herself... and we were beside ourselves. We didn't know what to do! We just recently relocated from Los Angeles to Orlando so we really didn't know anyone that could refer us to a dog trainer. I came across a business card from South Orlando Dog at a local coffee shop in Celebration and called to see what could be done. We've been working with Todd now for a few months and I have to say- it has made a HUGE difference. South Orlando Dog Training is all about positive reinforcement. We NEVER thought Bella could break this habit. Todd is so patient and so caring- you can tell he really loves what he does and he truly cares about his clients. I would say we hit the jackpot as far as dog trainers go. If you are even thinking of hiring a trainer for your dog- Todd is the way to go.
Camila has been an amazing dog trainer! Our dog has learned so much already and it's all thanks to Camila! Barley always looks forward to his weekly training sessions. We love that during our 5 week training sessions we can reach out to Camila with any questions or concerns and she is there to assist.
After being told by other trainers that my pup may be possibly red zone, Clyde came and did a free evaluation working with my pup and shared that my puppy is very trainable. ..Such a relief. .I'm excited to get started....
Trainer is good. My dog is learning and enjoys the training and my wife is learning how to interact with the puppy to curb some if his bad habits.
Madi did a great job of watching our home and especially taking care of our dog. You can tell she has a great love for dogs and is very comfortable with them. Our dog does not warm up easily to many people, but he took to Madi right away. He even slept in the bed with her at night! He was calm and happy when we arrived home from our trip. Would definitely use Madi again and recommend her to others.
Hi my name is Dane and I have had the great pleasure of getting to know and work with Ernie Rivera of Valor K9 for sometime now. I have watched Ernie train his dogs and hold there training to highest of standards. The name" Valor" suits him and the people who work for him simply because of his training methods, techniques, compassion, and caring about what they do. The value they provide for you dog is priceless. Everyone at Valor K9 take a lot pride in what they do there. If you want great results I would definitely give Valor K9 a call.
I think that I have had Vickie as my agility trainer for me and my dog for just a little over a years time period. She has helped me with all my bad habits that was hindering me when I was working my dog in a agility class. She has a great deal of passion in being a dog trainer for agility, she only wants the best for the dogs and their owners. When I first started at javic training my dog ran away from me and I did not have control over my dog on a agility field. My dog now stays with me and is more focused with me on the agility field. She is an outstanding trainer.
We have only met once so far but really happen from first impression and we are off to a great start with using the correct verbage with our pup and 9 year old dog. She has proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks!! We are very excited to continue working with you!
I purchased a dog from Sharon Emard. I did not realize at the time i was having an exceptional experience in the dog breeder business. Since then i have learned that a real, honest, truthful, person breeding and selling quality dogs is very rare. I hope this review helps someone. What i was looking for was a dog that was bred for temperament, health, and true to the original breeds goals. Aaliyah Von Weiber Hase is and has been more than i could have hoped. Sharon is a good honest woman, and a great merchant.
Jee is an AMAZING dog trainer. More like a dog whisperer! I called Jee to help with Cookie, our first rescue dog, who had aggressive behavior and leash pulling. Within one home visit, she already had Cookie walking calmly on the leash. After a full day with Jee, Cookie was soooo much better behaved. When my son got deployed a couple of months ago, his 9 month old puppy, Mila, came to live with us. Mila was attacking the elder dog in the house (Ella) daily over food and toys. Mila spent three weeks at Jee's Board & Train Program, and came back a MUCH better behaved pup! Jee brought Mila over a few times during the Board & Train session to work with Mila and Ella together. No more attacks! In fact, Mila will now turn her head away from Ella when she walks by, avoiding a confrontation...when Mila used to instigate the confrontations! We can now enjoy all the dogs in the house, without having to worry about any fights...all thanks to Jee!
Ellie started working with my puppy Charlie when he was only 2 months old. If you think it's impossible to get a small energetic puppy to sit, stay, come, look at me, along with several other important commands, you are wrong. Ellie amazed me at how fast Charlie caught on and obeyed her and then me. She not only trains your dog but trains the owner. She will give you one-on-one time, answering any questions you have about any behavior issues or potty training. All of her techniques work and it's all through positive reinforcement, not punishment. Potty training was such a breeze with her methods. After training with Ellie, I can take Charlie with me anywhere. I always get compliments on how obedient and well behaved he is. Charlie loved Ellie's classes so much that as soon as we would pull into the parking lot he would get so excited and then run to her when he saw her, giving her kisses. Charlie and I both miss Ellie and are sad his training classes are over. I honestly can't recommend Ellie enough, she is absolutely amazing and you won't regret getting her help. The pictures I've included are Charlie sitting and looking at me on command during Ellie's training, his graduation picture from her program and Charlie today, still behaving so wonderfully.
Tevin was amazing! We had so much fun, while learning and engaging with our dog. The drive was a little bit out of the way for us , but it was worth every mile. See you again Tevin when we start our advanced training!
Kara is amazing. She has a natural ability with animals matched with years of experience as a vet tech and dog trainer that combine to make her a one of a kind find. If you have the opportunity to hire Kara, do so quickly as she is certain to get booked quickly.
Marshall and I can personally attest to the fact that Martin and Pat are wonderful people who not only love dogs, but are excellent trainers as well. We had our Lab, Harley, trained by others before we knew about them and weren't satisfied, so when Harley went to Martin and Pat, we couldn't believe the results in just a couple of weeks! We will definitely take Harley back for "refresher" courses. He loves it there, too.
