We started Pups to Pooches when our pup was about 12 weeks old, and went through (2) 6-week sessions of training. The training was easy to learn for both our dog and us, and Ann provided lots of feedback to make sure we were giving the proper cues. We received follow-up information via email to help reinforce all that was learned. Ann was in tune to the pups, and helped determine any issues that might arise and the best course of training based on the pups' personalities. Ann gives lots of personalized attention. This was by far the best dog training I've experienced with any of my dogs.
My dog is quite stubborn with everybody pretty much but myself. He's food aggressive and personal & territory space aggressive. We' ve had issues with him attacking my other dog & I have to keep them separated he is so territorial with his food & me that I am constantly on alert with him. It all came to a head when he became territorial over a piece of Rawhide and shook my 17 year old cat and broke her leg and injured her badly we had to put her down, which is also the same option that I have out was ready to do with him. Darius came in and worked on some basic training skills and we're basically having to start from scratch. The dog minds me when it suits his needs which is pretty much most the time but we do have issues with a lot of training not only the dog but myself. So Darius is beginning to help us and we're starting a new regimen and things seem to be working great we've only been through the introductory session but I'm impressed. We'll see how everything works out. I'm happy so far.
Yvonne provided such great instruction and ideas for training our dog, Piney. He has made such progress while working with Yvonne. We would recommend her to anyone who needs help with their dog. She was great to work with as pet owners.
Within minutes of putting up my request on Thumbtack, Dawn responded with what ended up to be an amazing offer for training. I just received my dog back yesterday, and I can already see the results. She did a wonderful job and worked with him on everything I asked, and as of now, everything I have seen has been a success. She sends periodic updates while your dog is away just like she promises, and makes it much easier to leave your furry friends for the allotted time. Dawn went above and beyond in helping my dog and myself, and the training has transferred excellently. I would highly recommend this service to anyone trying to take the obedience of their dog to the next level with the amazing Off Leash training.
I cannot say enough about Sonja McBerry with Dog Training in your Home. The lessons she provides are so personalized and because they take place in your own home the training covers exactly what you need where you need it. Sonja did a great job teaching me how to work with and train my dog so she would be well behaved. Even after the private training stops the group lessons continue to benefit your dog. it is so nice to have someone you can rely on and turn to when you/your dog needs a refresher or you just have a question.
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.
She was the best my dog looks amazing an she was so sweet I would recommend her to everyone that has a dog under 50lbs ....Thank you so much Mrs.Linda Snickers will be back soon...
Kristie is very knowledgable in dog training and we are seeing results immediately. She has been flexible to our schedule and is always on time.
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.
Terri works hard to create an individualized, positive training plan for your dog. Also, she is is very personable and makes dog training fun!
Our white lab went to training camp for two weeks. We've had two labs previously and never had issues with training, but our little guy (10 months) was a good boy, but silly and very strong willed. There were times where we were all feeling frustrated. I researched several dog training camps and one on one canine training in GA and felt a total peace with Oh Good Dog. We did the two week camp and Francis was wonderful. Our dog came back so much calmer, more assured of himself and was actually holding all of his commands. He played hard and worked efficiently while at camp. We were sent videos and photos which helped us make it without having him around. What I loved is that they take your dog on field trips and to the park so they learn to keep their commands in day to day distractions and learn to obey in different scenarios. When we did the end of training with Francis to see his progress, where we learned how to implement everything, we could all see how close Wyatt had become with Francis which made us so happy. I Highly recommend Oh Good Dog.
We adopted a two year old Boston mix with anxiety and trust issues. After the first lesson Molly started responding to sit, down, and shake. Since then her anxiety is almost gone and she's not eating the cage or rug anymore. Jan really helped us make Molly feel at home and she's thriving. I highly recommend Jan for your dog training needs.
Sharon did a great job watching Savannah. She's very trustworthy and thorough. I will definitely have her dog sit again.
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!!
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
