Was very caring n gentle n friendly with our dog like it was hers. Cleaned up after service was done Definitely will use again ....
I hired Francis from Oh Good Dog Professional Dog Training to acclimate my two miniature schnauzer puppies. My goal was to have two well-adjusted household members and Francis far exceeded my expectations. He was gentle with both us (the pet parents) and the dogs, gave up practical guidance on how to train them, and left us with plans for continued training now that our 6 week sessions are concluded. I cannot recommend him highly enough and plan to reengage in the fall once our puppies have become a bit more seasoned.
Donna is amazing! She has worked wonders with our 3 1/2month old English Shepherd Millie. Her kindness towards me as a first time puppy owner and towards our smart but stubborn dog has been a blessing. Millie is on the right path to being a well trained girl. Each lesson, she learns more and my confidence to be a calm strong owner increases. Donna's years of experience show in her ability to problem solve, correct, and fix poor dog and owner behavior. I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to all that she can teach us.
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
No dog behaviors change overnight, but Ann gave us a great plan of action and we have already seen some improvement and less anxiety in our rescue pup.
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.
I cannot say enough about Sonja McBerry with Dog Training in your Home. The lessons she provides are so personalized and because they take place in your own home the training covers exactly what you need where you need it. Sonja did a great job teaching me how to work with and train my dog so she would be well behaved. Even after the private training stops the group lessons continue to benefit your dog. it is so nice to have someone you can rely on and turn to when you/your dog needs a refresher or you just have a question.
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!!
Jay has been punctual and straight forward from the first day he met with our dog and us. I really value his professionalism and reminder texts confirming appointments and true partnership with my family to solve my dog's issues. I find his flexibility to not stick to a formulaic plan, but opt for the best training route for my dog as we see what she needs, the most impressive factor. So far so good and I look forward to seeing all of the growth.
Amanda was quick to figure out our dog owners' behavior and corrected us efficiently! Thank you, Amanda!
Individual dog training. Specifically, for jumping on house guests, leash pulling, and minor behavior issues. Shaun was responsive and helpful. He addressed all of our issues in turn and really helped us get our dog on the right track. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with pet behavior problems, big or small. He knew how to approach them all. Thanks Shaun!!!
Chelsea is very responsive. When you have adopters who are having problems, they want to hear from someone ASAP. Chelsea is very professional and knowledgeable and great at reading a dog's behavior
Daylan has given me invaluable guidance in addressing my dog's behavioral issues in a kind and compassionate way!
We had an wonderful experience with Lisa. She was very helpful with controlling the temperament of my puppy, his behavior has completely turned around. I purchased the four session package. Very fair price. Not only did my puppy learn a lot from her, so did I... I left with plenty of tools to implement in our daily life. Our household has been running much smoother since she came into our lives. I would absolutely recommend her to others, her service was outstanding!!
Lauren is a consummate professional and has an extraordinary talent working with dogs. I've taken several classes, puppyhood and beyond manners, with Lauren. The force free techniques used in theses two classes really worked well with my dog, and even 2 years later she has sustained the good behaviors taught by Lauren!
Heidi helped me correct some behavioral issues with my dog Grace. Her individualized approach was so helpful for us. Heidi really has a knack for helping people strengthen their relationships with their pets.
I have used his services on 2 of my dogs, and was blown away by the improvement in my dogs behavior.
Emily took the time to not only train my dog, but train me and explain to me why my dog was behaving the way she was. My dog would always begin barking right when I would start a conversation with a friend. She demonstrated first hand ways to respond when my dog was barking in order to stop the barking while positively praising my animal. She is a professional, clearly educated on animal behavior. I would definitely recommend anyone to leave their animals in her care!
I was at my wits end with my dog. As heartbreaking as it was, I was at the point that I was going to have to re-home my precious pup. My dog was jumping on people, running out the front door at any chance she could get, barking, not coming when called, pulling me all over the place on the leash, chasing cars and other dogs. It was a living nightmare. Thank God I found Jennifer at A Divine Dog Training Academy! She saved my sanity and my dog. Jennifer is a true miracle worker. Not only did she train my dog, she trained me as well. Her training method was fun for me and my dog. My dogs behavior problems were fixed very quickly as well. I could not believe how fast my dogs behavior changed for the better even after just one training session. If you are at the point of giving up on your dog, please don't.....just call Jennifer.
