Cliff is an exceptional trainer. We had a pretty severe case of aggression with our dog. Our dog is a 5 year old shepherd lab mix and 100 pounds so dealing with the aggression was pretty hard so we hired Cliff. We were a little nervous in the beginning because we are very protective of our "baby." Cliff showed great professionalism and is very skilled and trained trainer. We now trust Cliff 110% with our dog and he has taught us so much!!! Our dogs behavior has improved so much and even friends and family have noticed and commented. His past behaviors included biting, aggression towards other dogs on walks, not listening to us and overall stubbornness and if he didn't want to do it he wasn't going to. We still have things to learn and more training to do but our dog has definitely had a major improvement and continues to learn from Cliff. If you are looking for a trainer for your dog Cliff is your guy!

Franco is truly amazing with his God-given talent. He takes the time to explain what makes a dog tick. Realistically, his title should not be dog trainer but people trainer. We have learned so much from him in regards to how a dog thinks and as a result we have a very well behaved dog.

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!!!!!!!

She was on time and very knowledgeable. Our dog was having a problem with going to the bathroom inside the house and she is an older dog. She gave us a lot of solutions and we tried them and it has worked almost instantly. Would recommend!

I have called dog trainers all around the U.S., and Tackett Service Dogs in Palm Beach was the only company that actually cared! Love that they are a family owned company, and don't just care about the money. They take their training seriously, and truly care about each and every dog that they work with. I chose to work with this company out of all of the others that are local to me in Georgia.

Kathy was great. I learned a lot about our dog and how to continue the training she taught me. I had experiences with other dog trainers and was unimpressed. Kathy knows her stuff and was a pleasure to work with.

I can't say enough about Ashley!! She has been grooming my dogs for about 8 years and I honestly couldn't be happier!! She is always punctual, very caring and is a master groomer! Ashley truly loves what she does and is meticulous when grooming our Golden retriever. She is also an exceptional dog trainer for those of you looking for help in the manners department! 😉 Maggie enjoys her spa days! It is rare in this day and age to find someone who is honest, kind and trustworthy...Ashley is certainly one of those people. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great groomer!!

We can't thank Carol enough for helping us with our dog Sandy! We were at our wits end until she came to our home and showed us ways to calm her isolation anxiety and keep her mind occupied when we leave the house. Now we are able to leave the home without causing stress for us or our pets! You may not need a dog trainer all the time - but if you do - Carol is definitely recommended!

I just adopted a puppy who was not housebroken. She also barked all day, especially when the door bell rang. I discussed my concerns with the Our Dog Den. When her training was over, I was amazed at the results. In such a short time my pup was trained . I was given the tools to continue the work at home with her. I have many dogs and have many different trainer,s but Our Dog Den is the best.

I have known Mike personally for the better part of thiry years. In fact, we worked together in the K-9 unit many years ago.Mike is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced dog trainers I have ever met. Mike recently trained a new puppy that I rescued from the Animal Shelter. I'm extremely pleased with the results needless to say. If your considering having your dog trained, you don't have to look any further than Mike. I know you will be extremely pleased! His reputation speaks for itself.

For the majority of dog owners, choosing the right dog trainer is one of the most important decisions they will have to make regarding their dog. Upon becoming new dog parents to a Dandie Dimmout Terrier named Winston, I often found myself saying "no one knows my dog like I do." Through the training and guidience of Bijan, owner of ORA Dog Training, we realized that we weren’t truly understanding Winston. Bijan trained us to understand our dog’s needs and natural tendencies and the proper way to handle them so that we could live happier lives as dogowners, and most importantly, that Winston could live a happier dog life! While many dog owners might be proficient handlers, Bijan possessed a skillset and information in which he mastered, and the gap between a well-meaning, intelligent dog owner and a trained professional. Bijan is a great listener and is interested in your take on your dog's characteristics, tendencies, personal history, strengths and weaknesses. Rather than immediately dictating who and what needs to change, Bijan starts by sitting down and talking through expectations, concerns and philosophies before starting any actual training or behavior modification work. Bijan was a great communicator both in terms of listening to our questions and concerns as well teaching us and our dog. We were enthused that he wanted to know everything possible about the dog's background so that he could more quickly and effectively identify root causes and implement a positive training protocol. Bijan always included us in the training. He would constantly and effectively communicate what he was doing, and one of his primary goals was for us to step in and eventually take over the actual training with our dog, Winston. Bijan does not only train your dog, but more importantly, he trains you to properly guide your dog. When we first met with Bijan, Winston was a total brat! Did what he wanted, when he wanted, and didn’t understand what we were trying to communicate to him. To be honest, we were skeptical as to how much progress was possible with our disobedient pup, but like magic, after the first hour-long session at our apartment, the progress was amazingly positive! We couldn’t even walk Winston without him sitting on the sidewalk and resisting. Now, Winston is a calm obedient dog (when we want him to be) but he is still the active loveable puppy he has always been. I recommend Bijan to all my friends who own a dog or who are bringing a new dog into their home. Bottom line, hands down, ORA Dog Training are miracle workers and are extremely patient, understanding, and courteous to dogs and their owners!

Working with Daniel was a godsend!!! From the moment he started working with my dog and showing me what to do, I knew I had found the right trainer. When my dog turned 2 she showed signs of aggression and just not listening to me anymore. Come to find out she was reactive not aggressive. I had worked with 2 other trainers before Daniel and neither one compare to his knowledge or his willingness to do whatever it took to correct the problems. Now she is a great dog thanks to Daniel and I would highly recommend him to anyone

I have know Dave for a long time. I watched him train his Chocolate lab Coco from a pup to a Champion. She is a remarkable dog! He helped me train my little pug dog who was quite stubborn. Dave helped Teddy and me find the patience that it took to learn how to make him a well behaved member of our family. Dave is very professional and respectful with me and my wife and of our home. He has had full access to my home when we were away on vacation and has lived up to the trust that we put in him.

Marti is an excellent trainer, both for the owner and the dog, or dogs in my case. The improvement after the initial visit is beyond my expectation. She came prepared with collars and harnesses and tried different options to figure out which would be most effective for both the dogs and the owners. We plan on scheduling another lesson, after we continue to work with the dogs on our own for a little while. You can tell marti truly cares about your pet and the well being of both you and your dog. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a dog/owner trainer.

Kelly has an instinctual and professional ability to train dogs!! Her love for animals is clear and her techniques are effective. I lacked so much patience with our dog for jumping, barking, and begging but thanks to Kelly we were able to reinforce what she taught. I would highly recommend hiring her!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
