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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Awesome!!! It's very simple. Doron may be one of the best trainers I've come across. He doesn't only have great patience when it comes to training your puppy, he is also very thorough when it comes to informing you of the techniques and reasoning behind them. Will definitely suggest using his services or even just talking to him and getting a better understanding of your puppy.

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.

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 :)

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.
