Maureen provided an immense amount of help for us and our pup who was afraid of going outside! By giving us a different perspective on the situation, her intuition and expertise helped solve the problem almost immediately. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dog/puppy trainer. She was a pleasure to meet and work with!
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.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Andy and his dog (owner) training! We noticed a difference in our puppy's behavior in the first week! Andy does a fantastic job of explaining the theory behind all the commands and works with you to make sure you know what to do at home to practice the skills. This was more than well worth the modest cost of the training!
Our 2 year old lab/chow mix was very disobedient. Now only after a couple sessions he has learned so much! I would recommend this dog trainer to anyone that truly cares about their dogs!
Brandi is all my dog and I could have hope for. Great training. Great service. Great progress with my dog's behavior.
My experience with Christine and K9 Holistics was nothing short of amazing. First, I want to explain that at 37 years of age, Quinn is my first pup, therefore I had very little knowledge and needed someone who would not just train the pup, but train me as well. And this is exactly what Christine did. She took my level of knowledge into consideration, and designed a plan that my wife and I followed with our pup. She always followed up with detailed homework for us to maintain Quinn's training throughout the week. Quinn's behavior changed dramatically over the short 6 weeks that we spent together. He was never a bad-behaved dog, but he went from being an untrained dog, to a dog that could follow all of the basic obedience commands with ease and consistency. Months after our time together ended, and even after I moved 4 states away, Christine is still in touch with me to see how Quinn is transitioning to his new environments, and to ensure that I don't have any additional needs. I highly recommend Christine to anyone who cares a lot about their dog. You will not be disappointing and your dog will thank you!
Rose has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and patience has exceeded my expectations. She is what a real dog trainer should be. I have spent a lot of money in the past with others with no end result and after just a short time I have already seen great results that continue even after she leaves our home. My Pitbull and Bull Dog love her and are growing to have much better manners. We are very grateful for the work she has put into the training and educating us to be better owners. Will recommend to friends and family without a doubt!
I was a first time dog owner. Brittany help me pick the perfect dog for my family. Initially, I had selected a different breed, but after getting to know my family, she constructively gave me reasons as to why a different breed would be better. She also went with us to purchase our dog and she was right on point. After putting our dog through her camp, our job was easy. She gave us very helpful information on training our puppy, specifically, how to react with others which was a vital element for us since our children were young and had their friends over a lot. We are so happy that Brittany was able to make this experience so wonderful for us. I refer all of my friends to her.
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.
Great team with amazing skills. Helped get out dog in shape and corrected his behavior perfectly. Out dog is now following commands on and off leash as well as out of crate.
We absolutely loved It's a Dog's World! They were so wonderful with our boxer baby and I would highly recommend them!
First off I would just like to tell you that Robin is AMAZING at what she does. If you are looking for someone who can train your dog and more importantly you, she is the one and only person I would recommend. She embraces the "be the pack-leader" philosophy along with positive reinforcement. I called Robin in desperation about our newest dog, Zeus; she listened to my concerns and even made time to come out that very same day and the training started right then. From she moment she walked in the door, she commanded my dog's attention just by using her presence, posture, and eye contact- a few treats didn't hurt either! Not only did she ask for and receive Zeus's respect, she showed me how to get the same results. Robin gave me the tools I needed to be able to "lead" my dog and establish that I was in charge and that he could trust that I would protect him from anything he feared. Our first session was only an hour but by the time she walked out the door, I was reassured and confident that I could help Zeus be the dog he wanted and we needed him to be with her help. I cannot thank Robin enough because I truly believe that without her help Zeus would not be the fantastic dog that he is. So, THANK YOU ROBIN! You are THE BEST! -Hillary & Zeus
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.
Robin is by far the most experience dog trainer I have ever met. She made the crate and potty training for my 9 weeks old puppy like a breeze. I followed Robin guideline religiously and after one week, my puppy was totally house broken and running to the door for potty. My puppy slept in her crate for 7 to 8 hours, walking well for the puppy on the leash in less than a week. . Robin has been there for us anytime we had question. She is so caring that I feel she is my best friend not just a trainer. If you want to enjoy your puppy without any extra stress, just call her. You won't regret it.
Brad is our trainer he is wonderful.. very firm and clear on what to correct. I had a 5 months old German Shepherd that was out of control jumping , biting, no respect. I NEEDED HELP YESTERDAY! After three visits with Brad and doing my home work. Samson is a pleasure to take on walks , around other dogs and guest. Everybody says wow it like unreal . The positive changeffect in him and me .Remember it all the handler and a great trainer. Again a special thanks to brad..
Caroline is a gifted trainer. We have an especially difficult cocker spaniel and Caroline has been a tremendous help in providing training and strategies for handling him. She uses positive reinforcement in her training which is important to us. We can recommend her services without reservation.
Neil is one of the best dog trainers I know. It's all about the dog. He is very passionate and dedicated in his work. One of the most knowledgeable in this industry. I would highly recommend Neil to train your dog.
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!
