My first session with Darius today was extremely knowledgeable and very delightful he knows dogs very well and this is only after spending 1 hour. Darius answered any questions I had and was very willing to help me with all of my questions ...I seen the difference in control that he had over my dog using one finger versus me having to use two leashes putting them through my hand. I would definitely suggest hiring Darius has your dog trainer you and your dog will be truly satisfied and we all know a trained dog is a happy dog!
I highly recommend using Francis for help with training your dog. He was knowledgable, patient, and great with my dog. We had 6 classes with him and he got my stubborn dog to do things I never thought she could do!!! I am so happy with the results. I have worked with many dog trainers in the past and he is one of my favorite!!!
Kristie has helped me with some basic dog training for my rottweiler Ace. She does an amazing job with him and myself . He has learned a lot really quick and he is really focused when she is giving him commands....I'm very satisfied with what she is doing and would highly recommend her. Thanks Kristie, Ace and I really appreciate what your doing.
I reached out on Thumbtack for a dog trainer and Dawn responded within 15 minutes. She patiently explained the process involved to train my 7-year old Dachshund, who - shame on me - previously had no obedience training. Then Dawn came to my house to meet Max and give her assessment. At the appointed day/time, Dawn arrived and led Max away for a couple of weeks of off-leash training. He's still "at camp" and I'm getting periodic progress reports from Dawn, laced with a little humor. I miss the little guy and am really looking forward to seeing the results! Mark Baker
Ann Lewis, of Pups to Pooches, is one of the best dog trainers I've ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable about breed temperaments and what motivates individual animals. She is a great person to work with, especially if you have kids and a new dog or puppy because she will work with the entire family and teach kids how to interact with your new pup so there are no conflicts. I can't recommend Pups to Pooches highly enough. I plan to continue doing routine maintenance work to keep my dog challenged.
Our family recently worked with Sonja to help us teach our new rescue dog (1.5 years old) some manners. He is the most friendliest dog but would jump on people, play bite things and people, and was extremely hard to take for walks. We have learned so much with Sonja's help and encouragement. Sonja knows her stuff, she is upfront, reliable and always makes herself available for questions. No doubt that Sonja is one of the Best dog trainers around. The whole experience was worth every single penny. Now when friends come over to our home, we hear comments like, "Oh! Your dog is so well behaved." Even during a dinner party, he stayed in his "place" when told to do so. We are so proud of our rescue's accomplishments. He is the best dog ever and thanks to Sonja, everyone can see that when they come into our home or when we are out for a walk.
We are still in the middle of our training but so far they have done an amazing job. Our trainer is friendly and professional and she is very caring towards our dog. Our dog has responded beyond expectations - we are very pleased with Off Leash
My puppy is trained. It seems that I am the one who really needed the training all along. She knows her stuff and is super easy to work with. Helps you throw away the embarrassment as far as feeling like a failure in training my dog. We Will be back!
They were able to train my dog in a way that I can now effectively communicate to him. Previously he would bark at strangers but now he is obedient. I highly recommend them and will consider putting my other dog too.
My wife and I rescued a puppy back in January, and we were really happy about it! However, we did not know what we had gotten ourselves into. Bo, our puppy, was very calm the first few days we got him, but as time progressed, he started to become a little bit of a hassle. At first we thought it was because he was a puppy that he always wanted to play, but it just seemed that he never rested. We had trouble with potty training him, and we could not have him on a leash. We were seriously considering giving him up because it was getting too much to handle. Thankfully, a good friend of ours recommended ADZK9s. I gave Doron a call, and he quickly put us on his schedule. Bo and I met him at their facilities, and he treated Bo immediately by giving him all shots he needed. We decided to enroll him in the 1-Month boarding and training program they provide, and it is the best thing we did for Bo and us. Bo was another puppy when he completed the program. He was obedient and calmer while still being the joyful and playful little puppy we first got. We were amazed at the results. He was completely potty trained, and he enjoyed his leash among many other things. Doron and Arlene explained that Bo was a special case. During his training they learned that Bo has tremendous amounts of energy, and that is why we were having such a hard time with him. At the beginning they had a tough time with Bo because of that same reason, but they didn't give up and were able to find a successful way to train him. We are grateful to them for that. They are great people, and they go above and beyond in what they do. They took their time to explain the process and share their knowledge with us we can be the best owners to Bo. We 110% recommend them for anyone who is looking to have their dog trained.
I highly recommend Terri to anyone who is considering dog obedience and training. She is hands down one of the best dog trainers around. I would encourage anyone who has a puppy (or even an older dog) to consider Terri's Training for Dogs and People.
Canine and Company did great at training my dog in obedience and helping his anxiety. I look forward to training more together in the future.
My 5 month old puppy and I both love working with Kris at Family Dog Training! I went to her looking for basic obedience training, but was thrilled to learn that she is also certified in several areas of dog fitness and agility training! She uses her knowledge to add fun, and safe, exercises which incorporate the basic obedience skills we are learning. This is a great way to have fun with your dog or puppy, and create a stronger bond with your pet!!
Dog sitter arrived on time & was polite & professional. We will use his services again.
Lisa is a dog whisperer! She successfully trained my dog and trained me to be a confident and nurturing dog mom. In my opinion, Lisa's skills are magical. I plan to purchase a second package so we can work on advanced skills such as greeting guests at the door and walking without lunging. She is worth every penny.
We provide basic/advance obedience home and personal protection. We pride ourselves on our knowledge and experience with dogs We teach the dogs proper behavior as well as educate you, the owner, on how to fairly and effectively communicate with your dog.
Lindsay is the BEST! I can always trust her to take care and give lots of love to my dog, Harley. Whether she is walking him, dropping in for a home visit, or he stays with her, she always send me pictures of them having a blast. She keeps me updated and I am never worried about Harley when I know he's in her care.
When I first got my dog, Theo, I was working full time and in grad school, so I really had very little time to dedicate to training my dog. My dog had been rescued from a rural area, where he had been living in the wild for some time, he was almost a year old, and he had a lot of energy! I was in desperate need of help with training! Highland Canine Atlanta worked with Theo for a few weekends and had him following basic obedience very quickly. They also taught me strategies to use with training Theo while he wasn't working directly with HCA. I was very pleased with the training and outcomes, and I will definitely use them again in the future if I have the need. Thanks Highland Canine Atlanta!
Emily took the time to not only train my dog, but train me and explain to me why my dog was behaving the way she was. My dog would always begin barking right when I would start a conversation with a friend. She demonstrated first hand ways to respond when my dog was barking in order to stop the barking while positively praising my animal. She is a professional, clearly educated on animal behavior. I would definitely recommend anyone to leave their animals in her care!
I love training dogs so I work hard to make your dog the best they can be!
