We adopted a 3 year old Golden Doodle. After 7 months we realized we needed help with her dog aggression. Darius took her in and worked with her for a week with other dogs. She responded immediately to him. After the week he came and worked with my husband and I. He showed us how to work with her to keep her on course. I feel like we now have the tools to help her become the perfect 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.
My dog was attacked when he was younger and had aggression towards other dogs. I would get nervous taking him on walks when we saw other dogs. I now don’t have that nervousness and know he’ll be fine if we encounter other dogs on walks. He also learned come with call and I never have to worry about him running away.
Yvonne is a wonderful dog trainer she had helped us with our fearful Border Collie.
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.
Cris is a great trainer. My Weim 80lb puppy (1 year 9 months) spent 3 weeks with Cris, and it returned a changed puppy. Obedient, less anxious, with better manners. Cris was aware that I was very emotional about the whole separation from my puppy, he also knew that I needed help urgently, we were having problems adjusting to living in an apartment, Cris was amazing and he picked up my dog that same weekend, I am so thankful to him. He sent pictures, videos and updates every day. He is very professional, compassionate and caring for both the dogs he's training and the dog's owners. Thank you Cris, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for us. Bono is a better dog thanks to you :)
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 was pulling on the leash and showing aggression towards other dogs when we would go for walks. We hired Keith for obedience lessons and the results were amazing in a very short period of time. Walking our dog is now a pleasant experience not only for us but for the neighbors as well with absolutely no worries that we will have any incidents when another dog crosses our path. We have Keith come out once a month now for private lessons. He observes our interaction with our animal and offers any and all suggestions to maintain harmony. He truly cares for the animals wellbeing. We would highly recommend Keith.
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.
He was skilled, dedicated and down right pleasant. If you are having any reservations about using an e-collar, have them try it on you (they make everyone) so you can experience what your dog will feel . If you do the training, you will walk away amazed after the first lesson. It is incredibly effective. I feel so comfortable now walking with my springer in the woods or in a park. I know she will come to me as soon as I give the command (or stop and sit where she is at if I say sit). This is a great investment for you and your dog - it gives you peace of mind and helps keep your pup safe. You'll find that it won't take long at all before you can give the command with the e-collar on zero (which basically means it is nothing more than a clicker). I am very pleased with the e-collar and loved the staff at off leash training! I highly recommend them.
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!
We have 2 very large Dobe puppies and Off Leash K9 comes to the house for training. In only 2 lessons the girls have responded to training and are much more manageable for my wife and kids. Additionally, the trainer was able to provide some insight into the diet as we are switching to Raw and we can see the difference that the diet change has made. The trainer also has a real passion for what he is doing and its shown in the quality of work provided.
Where to begin..? ADZ has transformed 5 month old puppy into something else. I can’t go anywhere without people stopping me to just admire his discipline. Sits, lays down, goes to the bathroom, stops barking, etc. All on command. Yes, it takes one as a owner to continue the practice but it’s a night and day difference. I will never own another dog without it being trained by my ADZ family. It doesn’t stop there. ADZ loves what they do so much that they literally build a relationship with the dogs and their owners. I could keep on going about how great they are. Extremely thankful for them and everything they do!
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.
Chelsea is an excellent trainer. She is reasonably priced and produces amazing results. She treats all of her client's dogs like her own. She is passionate and extreamly knowledgable. I reccomend Chelsea to everyone who is looking for a trainer. Most all other places charge outrageous prices and don't get the results you desire. Chelsea works with you so that you learn how to continue your dogs training after she leaves. She gives details notes about the sessions so that you have all the details in case you forget what she showed you. She answers any question I have and gives genuine advice everytime I reach out to her after our training sessions. She is one of a kind and I am truly blessed to have met her. My boys' lives would not be the same without her.
Damon Clemons I'd the most professional, caring and best dog trainer I have met. He does his job very well. He not only trains the dogs but the owners too. He makes sure that the owners are stable and balance as well as the dog he is training. He really focuses on the dogs needs. He doesn't do just one method with every dog, he works with the dog and then decides what will work best for that dog. If I ever needed another dog trained I would only bring them to Iron Will Dog Training. He is the best of the best!
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!!
I have used his services on 2 of my dogs, and was blown away by the improvement in my dogs behavior.
I've only had my first lesson and I am already seeing significant results. My male German Shepherd was very hard to handle even with a gentle leader. He would bark and lunge aggressively at other dogs and people while on our walks and would continuously bark at neighborhood walkers from my window. They explain everything and are very informative and know what they are doing. I've felt like I've been walking on thin ice because my dog has gotten in trouble with animal control with his aggression. Now I have the confidence to take him on walks and to public places. I don't even use the gentle leader now because the e-collar has him under control. I'm feeling very optimistic and look forward to the rest of my classes.
I was a former military dog trainer with 30 years of experience. I was a police dog trainer. I service dog trainers for pets and kid with disabilities.
