The Experience of Darius' Dogs was Great!!! He explained all directions fluently, and he also showed full control over my German Shepherd without proper dog training equipment. My dog listened to Mr. Darius on command within only 5 minutes of him being there. Mr. Darius obviously knows what he's doing and takes pride in his work as a professional dog trainer, he even went so far as to give me nutrition tips for my German Shepherd. I recommend Darius' Dog's to any dog owner that is looking for good quality professional help in training your dog.
I really enjoyed the the experience and they did a really good job helping me train my German shepherd they were very friendly and I would strongly recommend them THANKS!!!!!
Laura is amazing !!! She trained my German shepherd and pit bull together. I was not even able to walk them down the neighborhood with out them lunging at another neighbor and / or dog . She helped me and worked with them for 4 weeks and they came back totally different dogs ! I didn't recognize them !! Also... She went over everything in the go home lesson and taught me everything and answers my questions even after my dogs have been trained. Super kind and friendly. HIGHLY recommended
I had a very aggressive German Shepherd that I was about to give up on and seek a new owner. I spoke to several companies before getting on Thumbtack. Once on Thumbtack, I made the decision to move forward with Keith. Other companies tried to sell me a 2000 dollar + training package that they insisted was the only option. Keith and his services were far less and his training program completely solved my dog;s problems. At no point of time did I ever feel pressured by Keith. He was highly professional, extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during the whole process. I was constantly kept updated real time of the progress of my dog. I cannot say enough about how satisfied I am and have already sent him two neighbors experiencing issues with their dogs.
Very professional and sent updates on the training with videos every couple of days. It was great to see the progress and the updates let us know that our dog was being well taken care of. They are a little slow to respond to their main phone line, but very quick with emails. That is really the only negative I can think of. Greg is a great trainer and I would recommend him and Off the Leash to all of my friends.
We used Amanda's Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT) services during 2014. We did lessions 1, 2, & 3. Amanda came to our home for each session and was very flexible for scheduling. Her professional knowlwdge is outstandig and she has advised us on many dog health issuws oudside of just training. Our Doberman puppy was new to us and we hadn't had a dog in for many years previous. We are still very much using the training with our dog who through much of her training weightred about 50 lbs and nows weighs 90 lbs - so glad we stared with Amanda when or dog was a pup. We anticipate using Amanda's services again in hte future. Amanda also provides boarding services. Amanda has a special rapport with K-9's. You need to see her training in action to appreciate her skills!
My dog has been going to Pet's Playhouse on Ponce since she was 6 months old, she is now 7 years old. I take her for daycare several times a week and this is the only place that I will board her since all the staff knows her and she them. Shawn, Keno, and the rest of the staff are well trained to handle the dogs and true professionals when dealing with me. My dog and I have also had Shawn as a trainer (training classes available at Pet's Playhouse on Ponce) and I can always refer questions to him on behavior issues. I use the grooming severices (Squeaky Clean bathing) at least once a month. My dog (a shepherd mix) gets groomed more often when having a shedding blowout (one of the services is de-shedding) and there is no way to tell you how great it is to have less Lois hair in the car and in the house.
Mr. Julius is the best trainer I've know for anybody looking for obedience, protection, or socialization. I got my dog tango (belgian malinois) from Julius. He has excellent selection of Belgians an german shepherds to choose from . My dog tango has a lot of drive which I was looking for. Overall Julius is great breeder/ trainer who knows his stuff I'm looking forward to buying another dog from him soon.
Denise is incredible with our German Shepherd puppy, Bishop. Her training knowledge is immeasurable. She works with us as much or more than Bishop. She's teaching us how to handle Bishop so that he will be responsive, obedient and respectful to us and our home. We are able to implement her techniques immediately and are excited for each new session with Denise. We don't have a problem with Bishop, he's just a baby and we want to train him properly so he'll be a part of the family and able to go any and every where with us. We'll continue using Denise as Bishop grows and develops into a well trained dog. I'll keep you posted . . . Thanks Denise!
Fantastic!! My older standard poodle needed a refresher obedience course and dealings with a few bad habits I had allowed him to pick up over the years. Monique was so patient with us and helped me to unlearn harsh training techniques that I had previously been taught by other trainers. The difference was phenomenal. She gave all of us in the group individual attention in specific areas relative to our own doggie issues while her assistant trainer helped those lagging behind in understanding the concepts and training applications. Worth every penny, I'll be taking my next dog to her classes.
Afton did a wonderful job training Fionna and me. I have a super hyper crazy boxer/lab 70# girl, and Afton trained us both. She is calmer, sits, heels, and is great on a leash. And she loves Afton. Highly recommend Afton for training and for dog sitting. Ask my 98 year old grandma! Fionna sits calmly beside her which never could have happened without Afton's training.
I hired Lori to watch my German Shepherd when I went out of town. She did a great job, she was very fast to respond and professional. This was last minute request that I put on Thumbtack do to going out of town, and she was still able to accommodate my needs. She was prompt to get back to me. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks again
Amazing people to work with. In 2 weeks they got my unruly, unmanageable, one-year-old German Shepherd to be a perfect gentleman! Can't believe this is actually my dog. My only regret is not doing this sooner!!!
Thank You Master Christian for training my dog. Before when we went on walks my dog was walking me, now I am walking my dog. He is so obedient, well behaved and a joy to have around. Without your training my Wife would have forced me to sell my dog. Thank You
We have thoroughly enjoyed having Gary Adams and Good Dog Academy train our German Shepherd, Gypsy!! After 10 sessions she is a different dog. She seems much happier and more content. I would highly recommend him and am so grateful that we found him!!
We have 2 dogs that didn't listen and follow simple commands such as come, sit and stay. The come command is very important to us as we have some property that the dogs are able to roam freely (they always stay close to the house though). With the training that Greg provided our dogs now come on command as well as sit and stay. As an owner I still have to continue training and that takes time and commitment. We have had 7 out of 8 lessons so far and we're very pleased. Greg takes alot of time with us and has a great deal of patience. I never worry about him being late as he's always on time. And he's very flexible which helps me with my work schedule. He also helps keep me calm (our dogs can be aggressive towards each other). Of the companies I contacted about training Greg is the only one that took the time to come out and meet us for a free evaluation. If I could name one thing that would improve his training is if he was a dog behaviorist!!! I highly recommend Greg to anyone interested in dog training.
Hi, I'm Chief's mom, Shelly, I have a 3 year old male GSD. He was 1 y/o when I chose to do training with him after someone broke into my house. A friend of mine paid for some training for us at PetCo. I didn't like the treats idea, because the dog is supposed to work for you and not for treats. And that wasn't the type of training that my particular dog needed. I did some price comparisons. Put it like this "Good work isn't cheap!" I was in Decatur and seen the Atlanta K9 Solutions truck and stopped to talk to Craig, the K9Boss. He invited me to come in so I can see a demo of his dog Rain and to do an evaluation with Chief. I decided to the 14 day board & train Obedience and Protection package. I asked a lot of questions and they were very thorough with the answers. I called almost every day to check up on my dog. They sent videos of him and allowed me to talk to him over the phone. He learned German commands in 2 days! (That made me really comfortable with the trainers.) The 14 days felt like months. When I went in to picked Chief up, they brought me into a room where I could observe him working with the trainer without him seeing me. They explained to me that in order for me to have a well behaved dog, I must be consistent and use the leash. If I don't have the leash, I don't have control. They also explained that I need to come to training (private and/or Saturday group classes & Sunday obedience & Protection). Sunday protection class is handled by Darius who is a certified Decoy. He challenges the dogs by using different mechanisms with the dog, in order for the dog to protect its owner. They are very flexible as long as you communicate with them. They also travel to your home for an additional cost. I cannot make up any excuses as to what my dog is doing wrong and why, because it is up to me to handle him and MOST IMPORTANTLY MAKE TIME & go to classes. As an female owner of a male GSD, I cannot complain about my dog not working or being obedient if I do not know that I am the MASTER! Keep up the good work guys!
After I started training with Evan, life with my Boxer became much more enjoyable. From the beginning, my puppy refused to acknowledge the word no. But once we started training with Evan that changed. In just a few months, he became a different dog. Hes still full of personality, but is now eager to follow commands and is willing to accept corrections. My Boxer and I are proof that Evans philosophy of positive reinforcement, repetition, consistency, leadership and clear communication get results. When my Boxer was about six months old, I added a young German Shepherd, to the family. While she came to me with basic obedience training, Evan taught me that managing two large dogs isnt as hard as it might seem. I learned how to work both of them together, walk them together and more importantly, handle them with confidence. Whatever your training goals, I highly recommend Full Contact K9. Evan clearly has a passion for his work. In dog training, like most other things, you get what you pay for. Evan offers a unique combination of professional experience, a proven track record, knowledge and commitment that you won't find with anyone else.
