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!
What a wonderful experience! The trainers were so good with giving us feedback and were very patient when my dog didn't feel like listening! After 6 weeks I have a good foundation to keep working with my dog and I feel confident that we will continue to improve! Rocky thanks you! We will be back!
Our 1 year old Blue Heeler was out of control. We needed help. Zeus couldn't be walked because he would bark and cry (like he himself was hit by a car) every time he saw another car/dog/bike/person. It was horrifying not just for us, but for the people in the cars/walking. We have had 2 other training classes .. 1 group puppy training ( we were asked to leave because he was disrupting the other puppies ) and 1 on 1 training at the local pet store .. after the 8 sessions and reinforcing all the bad behavior the trainer said she couldn't do anything for him. After phone interviewing several trainers I opted to go with Luis and we are so glad we did!! Luis is amazing!! (we knew this after the 1st session) We've now had 4 training sessions, and my daughter who had never walked Zeus was walking thru Publix parking lot on a Friday afternoon .. with cars & tons of people with a well behaved dog!! Luis is patient, kind and has worked with the entire family individually and together so we can all have Zeus under control. We've come a long way in a short amount of time thanks to Luis .. We highly recommend him!
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!!
I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.
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.
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.
Rose from always faithful has been fantastic for me and my dog. I've seen a lot of improvement in his behavior thanks to what rose has taught us. She will show you the techniques you'll need to get your dog trained properly and provide the tools for you to establish a training routine that works for you. Absolutely worth the money!
I hired Tracy to help me train my 8 month old Newfypoo. I have used different trainers in the past for other dogs of mine and can honestly say Tracy has been the most attentive and has gone above and beyond to help us reach our goals. I was extremely impressed with her facilities and resources she has to train her dogs. I highly recommend the week training that she offers boarding the dogs, after that week our puppy came home with obvious improvements! We are extremely happy with the service we received, both my newfy and I :)
Professional Trainer, after neighbors witnessed the training with my American Pit Bull Terrier, they signed up for classes for their dog that had leash anxiety, and pulling on lease issues. Within a few classes the dog's behavior is now amazing. Wish I would have taken classes years ago.
Christina is amazing! She really knows her stuff, is willing to answer any and all questions, and really takes her time training you and your dog. I highly recommend her.
Andy gives great insight into how a dog thinks, and how to deal with behavioral issues by getting on the dog's level. This approach makes a lot of sense... if you're dealing with a German speaker, you're not going to use French to communicate! Teaching owners dogspeak equips us to more effectively communicate to our dogs what is acceptable behavior and what isn't. The methods he's taught me are now going to allow me to keep working my dog in a really effective manner even after the course is over! Andy is an outstanding trainer!
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
We have been using K-9 Coach for about 7 years. We had a new puppy after the death of one of our two dogs. The puppy was being very badly treated by the remaining dog and uncontrollable, probably in mourning. We used the K-9 Coach, Mike and got great results. We now have two very well trained dogs that are now therapy dogs at Hospice. We keep going to classes for socialism for our two dogs and on Saturday morning they sit at the door about 1/2 hour prior to our departure as they are so anxious to go to social class.cc
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!
