No dog behaviors change overnight, but Ann gave us a great plan of action and we have already seen some improvement and less anxiety in our rescue pup.
Jan is a truly gifted trainer. My dog was abused as a puppy and he had difficulty being around anyone but family, refused to go for walks away from home and hated getting out of the car. Jan has helped me introduce positive reinforcement techniques to train my dog to see the world differently and gave me the confidence to work with my dog on several other problems we were having. She uses several techniques, including training the owner to react appropriately to the dog's behavior, obedience training to work on regularly with the dog as well as good tips to build a stronger bond with my dog so we can enjoy each others company and the company of newcomers in a safe manner. Having Jan as my trainer has been a great experience and I highly recommend her! She is devoted to helping my dog and I build a happy and safe home environment. With a persistent, positive outlook that any dog can be trained with a little love and some yummy treats, Jan has changed my dog's life and mine.
I am currently working with Darius and I am already seeing improvement in my dog's behavior. He easily customized our session to the issues that I specifically wanted to focus on. He clearly has a plan in mind and I am looking forward to continuing working with him.
Cris helped me with general obedience that my dog seriously lacked. With just s few sessions he had completely stopped all jumping behavior as well as giving us some general obedience training and a place command, which my girl absolutely loves! Thanks Cris for all the help! Azzura and I are very greatful!
Sonja worked with our Husky, Zeke, for only a few months four years ago when he was a puppy. I've had a lot of dogs in my lifetime but this was the first time I hired a trainer. I thought I had always done alright training my own dogs but WOW was I wrong! Really, Sonja was training *me* more than my dog. Zeke is such a remarkably well-behaved dog. I added another puppy to my family last year and brought Sonja back to work with him. His personality is the complete opposite of Zeke's, so Sonja takes a different approach with him. She is a very caring and very effective trainer, I highly recommend her.
My family has been having behavioral issue with my adult dog and new puppy. They are both good sized dog and have extremely high engery which is not good in a house of 7. The dogs love to wrestle outdoors but we're bringing it indoors, not to mention the puppy loves to run off. We where really worried the dogs where getting more and more out of control and bringing them in with my hip issues and my grandmother's blindness was impossible. Dawn was absolutely amazing and reasonable with not only her suggestions but also with her pricing. I loved that her training did not required an abunance of overpriced toys, tools and treats. In fact we learned to reward the dogs without food treats which was a very new method for us. She gave my family and I an understanding on dominance traits and pack alpha dynamics. My 9 yr old can walk to both dogs without being dragged down and I can walk up and dog the stairs without fearing tripping over hyperactive doggys. I am looking forward to working with Dawn again to get even more obedience tips.
Kate is a great choice for dog training and behavior. She is very personable, easy to talk to, listens well to your situation and makes recommendations. I noticed immediate behavior improvement with my pit bull mix. By changing his routine and following Kate's suggestions we are well on our way to a better behaved, happy, less stressed relationship. I'm addition, Kate educates you on dog behavior and gives great insight into their world, this is invaluable information for pet owners.
Our dog Marco stayed at Oh Good Dog for a two week stay and train. During his stay, Francis provided regular updates and photos to keep us updated on Marco's progress. Since Marco has been back home, we have noticed a positive difference in his behavior. He is following more commands, playing with his toys by himself, and is generally more calm. Several friends and family members have commented on how much his behavior has improved after his time with Oh Good Dog. Marco received a great foundational training and we hope to continue his training as he gets older.
My dogs behavior was drastically changed from Melanie's dog training program. She got her potty trained and she even rings the bell to go potty!!
Truly an animal lover!!!!

My name is Avii, and I am a high school senior student who is raising money for my college tuition for a psychology degree, focusing on animal psychology and behavior. I am a positive, active, energetic and responsible pack leader who has a passion for animals and taking care of pets. I have grown up around animals my entire life with great experience with dogs and cats specifically for over 10 years. I have excellent emergency response. I am communicative, responsible and focused on making your animals feel happy, loved and cared for. I am willing to work with almost any animals, except snakes, birds and large animals (horses, etc). I am open to house sitting, walking, taking care of disabled animals (blind, older, etc.) and will do anything to make you and your pet feel happy and comfortable. I am willing to stay overnight with animals as well! My schedule is determined by your needs and of the kind of care your animal will need. Everything is flexible to fit you!
I love animals and will help with whatever care is needed for them. I walk, pet sit and will sit for long periods of time while you're on vacation, etc.
I have used his services on 2 of my dogs, and was blown away by the improvement in my dogs behavior.
I bring animals into my home after an initial in-home evaluation for 8-12 weeks and crate training. I teach them polite house behavior (no chewing, digging, or pottying inside); they will also be taught basic cues including sit, down, paw, stay and come.
