My first session with Darius today was extremely knowledgeable and very delightful he knows dogs very well and this is only after spending 1 hour. Darius answered any questions I had and was very willing to help me with all of my questions ...I seen the difference in control that he had over my dog using one finger versus me having to use two leashes putting them through my hand. I would definitely suggest hiring Darius has your dog trainer you and your dog will be truly satisfied and we all know a trained dog is a happy 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 was great. My dog was good aggressive after 1 lesson he was completely trained. She was very sweet and helpful
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
Jan is a truly gifted trainer. My dog was abused as a puppy and he had difficulty being around anyone but family, refused to go for walks away from home and hated getting out of the car. Jan has helped me introduce positive reinforcement techniques to train my dog to see the world differently and gave me the confidence to work with my dog on several other problems we were having. She uses several techniques, including training the owner to react appropriately to the dog's behavior, obedience training to work on regularly with the dog as well as good tips to build a stronger bond with my dog so we can enjoy each others company and the company of newcomers in a safe manner. Having Jan as my trainer has been a great experience and I highly recommend her! She is devoted to helping my dog and I build a happy and safe home environment. With a persistent, positive outlook that any dog can be trained with a little love and some yummy treats, Jan has changed my dog's life and mine.
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 :)
Keith contacted me about dog training. We had a first meeting that was supposed to last 30 minutes but ended up lasting almost 2 hours. He answered all of my concerns that I had about training and leaving my dog with a stranger. I got daily updates with pictures and videos of how my dog was progressing. I could not be happier with my decision to hire Keith and S-K9 Solutions for my dog training.
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.
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.
Very knowledgeable about dogs and their training. Friendly lady who boards the dog inside with her family. My dog connected with her immediately. Training not totally complete yet; very pleased with our experience. Highly recommend this trainer.
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.
We were having issues with our American Bulldog “Bolt”. He was pulling on his leash and acting aggressive towards dogs and people. We called ADZ Kennels and spoke with Doron. He took the time to listen and and watch video’s of our dog. He saw the playful nature in Bolt when others were telling us he was aggressive. Doron impressed us with his knowledge of Bolt’s breed and we set up an appointment immediately. After one training session we saw major improvements with Bolt. Doron and his staff are kind and knowledgeable. We drive a little over an hour each week to train our pup with ADZ Kennels. I would recommend ADZ to anyone who wants a perfectly trained and well behaved dog.
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.
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!
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.
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.

New To Thumbtack
I left a lucrative career to follow my passion -- working with animals and providing peace of mind to people and their pets. I have been a lifelong pet owner (dogs, cats, birds, fish, chickens, farm animals and more!) and have several years of experience pet sitting and working in animal rescue, fostering and rehoming. I'm studying to be a veterinary technologist. Are you a little nutty, maybe even considered a crazy person because you love your pets so much? That's okay because I feel the same way. I understand your need to feel secure about who visits and cares for your animals and to be updated as much as you wish on how they are doing while in someone else's care. I tailor my services to you and your pet. I am insured and bonded unlike those friends, neighbors and family members we've all been bugging over the years to help with our pets! I will care for any animal and am not afraid of anything; I love them all. Call me to discuss rates and services; you will find my rates to be very affordable. My goal is to make pet sitting accessible to as many people as possible who want to relax knowing their pets are in good hands.
