We just got a 4 week husky/wolf mix puppy and where looking to start the dog training as early as possible. Darius is good family friend and told us he trains guard dog and puppy training we talked a little then we went ahead and signed up for the puppy training and it has been a life changer 3 days into the training the Veer (puppy) would walk on leash has learned to pee and poop outside, and he learned the command come dashing from 30 yards away straight to me without a leash. Darius is amazing person and even phenominal trainer i would reccommend him to anyone looking for a dog trainer he would also share some videos if you like to to see his past trained dogs. He is very knowledgeable and loves what he does.
Francis is excellent with dogs. He helped with the training of our dog, and gave us many tips and hints on how to make this happen. He is easy to work with. And we enjoyed the experience very much.
Kristie is phenomenal at training. She has turned our Destiny into a whole new Puppy. Her training skills and methodology work great and I couldn't be happier with the results. We still have a bit of a way to go with Destiny but the skills and knowledge Kristie has provided us are sure to help in the future. Highly recommend Kristie for any training needs. Now we look forward to her training Destiny to become a frisbee champion. Thank you Kristie. Destiny couldn't have asked for a better trainer.
Wow is the first thing I want to say. Also, before being recommended to Karisha and Dawn from a friend I had no relationship to them. I work from home so my Zegen and I are very close. Let's just say he's a little anxious when I leave him for a while. I noticed firsthand the difference when picking him up from Off Leash than from picking him up from friends/boarders. The real test is when I am bringing him to be dropped off there. You know dogs know way ahead of time where they are going and Zegen is not his usual uncomfortable self. We get there, I open the car door and he jumps out! Does not try to get back in the car!! It's hard to put in words how comfortable that is to me when driving away. I think it is safe to say that I highly recommend Off Leash Dog Training to anyone. Not sure if this is allowed or if it will be removed from this post but if you are overly concerned about your baby as I am about mine please feel free to call me for any further questions: 404.697.4317 Brad Williams
Stella and I attended the Puppy Tubs puppy training and she was able to test for the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy at the end of 6 weeks and passed. Being a goldendoodle, she is very hyper and active so this was quite a feat. Yvonne's training was very hands on and Stella learned a lot. There is even had the obstacle course and it was fun. We continue to practice everything she learned so she doesn't forget.
Jan was amazing!!!! She helped us with our 6 month old terrier Hershey. This is our first dog so the first few months have been trying for us but Jan swooped in and stripped away our notions of dog training and used positive reinforcement to get us on track. Please use Jan if you're looking for a trainer. You won't be disappointed. We thank you for your help! :)
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.
Cris came to my house once a week for 6 weeks to help my 8 month old puppy with her training. He was great. Answered all of my endless questions and really made sure we understood what he was teaching us. Luna (my dog) took to him from the start, and is almost a completely new dog! So well behaved now and has learned all sorts of new tricks. I'm very happy with my experience and definitely recommend him!
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!!
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.
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.
Linda took excellent care of our puppy over the weekend! I contacted her at the last minute and she was so kind and accommodating. I would definitely recommend and use her again.
I met her at her house with my two Labrador Retriever dogs and two children in tow. I had originally asked about my five-month old puppy for training and ended up boarded my adult one too. She was personable, easy-going and obviously enjoyed animals. She had her own dogs and cats, along with other boarded dogs. Using gates, she kept the dogs usually fenced in the clean tile-floored kitchen space. She used treats, lots of dog toys, large crates, leash-training and sent pictures frequently. While the puppy was young for serious training, he did come back better mannered towards the older dog (think of it as two siblings), better house-broken, less chewing, less impulsive. My children have enjoyed trying to maintain the tricks he learned while at her house for two weeks. Surprisingly, my older older dog whom I thought hated cats, appeared to get along fine with her cats. I would use her services again.
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.
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.
Terri's love of dogs and understanding of dog/human relationships informs all her trainings whether one-on-one or in groups. She helps you understand why your dog needs you to be the leader and then shows you step by step how to accomplish this in gentle, respectful ways so that your dog can stay calm and connect with you and the community you all inhabit. My teen age daughter learned so much from Teri as we did puppy training. We really enjoy Brie who is learning to navigate Decatur living with polite manners and confidence.
I recieved 4 quotes from Thumbtack, on dog trainning. I chose (Bad Dog Good Dog) w/Lisa Taratoot, initially because of $$, however after only having completing 2 of our secessions,my dog has had a tremendous turnaround, and I am completly confident in Lisa "knowledge" in pet training abilities! and I am looking foward to our continued training process! Call Lisa, you want be disappointed.
It's been an awesome experience working with Puppy Training 1 on 1 so far, we've done two private lessons with Jake and our golden retriever and couldn't be happier with the level of service we've gotten. Jake has been amazing, and we're seeing significant improvement in our puppy!
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.
Megan is very easy to work with. She really understands and loves animals.
