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 have two 4-year-old dachshunds that I tried to train by myself by kenneling one while working with the other. This got me nowhere fast because the distractions of the other made it impossible. I needed help and did my research on Off Leash and was really sold when I saw the puppy poodle. The before and after was amazing. When I dropped Madison off, she was a leash puller, sniffer of all things, distracted by everything, didnt understand sit or down, much less stay in one place on command. I just got her back from her 2-week board and training. I couldnt believe how obedient she was when I went to pick her up. She could come, sit, down, place, heel, loose leash, and knew to stay until she was told to break after each command. She could block out distractions and I was astounded by the transformation. Yet, they do not just let you take them home without your own human training session. The trainer, Terry, sat down with me and took me through how to work the collar and trained me. We spent 2 hours walking with Madison and going through the commands. He corrected my behavior that could be confusing for her so when I bring her home I will know exactly what to do. He would have stayed longer if need be. They are also there for reach back if I ever need help and I will definitely utilize the refresher if not for my babies but for me. Also, she absolutely loves Terry and he loved her. This is a key factor that makes me happier than anything, she went to this tough training and loved her trainer, which makes me sure that she loved every moment she was there. Last but definitely not least they sent update pictures and videos. They know this is a hard process for both the puppy and their human and made it so much easier. I cannot say enough about how amazing the trainers and staff are at OffLeash Training Atlanta. This training has not just changed my babys life but mine as well.
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.
Marissa was great. She kept us up to date on what she was doing with Jinx and sent us pictures showing their progress. When she came back she spent tons of time sharing what they had done and how jinx responded. She also have us a demonstration of all that Jinx learned and how to continue her development. Jinx was a great puppy before but now she has learned so much more. Not just obedience commands but how to interact with us and other dogs! She responds well to all of our commands when we are working with her and her focus is amazing. You can really see how much work they did and how much it has paid off. For us our German Shepard is an investment we want to enjoy now and for the rest of her life, and I think that Marissa did a great job not only teaching her the basics but laying the foundation for continued learning. We will definitely be sending Jinx back once she is a little older and can learn even more! We are really fortunate to find a great trainer like Marissa and are excited about the resource she is going to provide for is and Jinx.
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!
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.
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!!!
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!!
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
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!
