Just met Darius today - he spent time with my 10 month old lab and then we scheduled for more training - tonight I took my dog for a walk and for the first time he didn't drag me down the street like he's been doing - and that was just after a short time with Darius! Im looking forward to more training with Darius - I can't wait to see what more my dog can learn!
As a fellow dog trainer, training up to 18 dogs a day plus group and private lessons. Francis is great at what he does with mans best friend. Through his experience of vetinary school, grooming and all different sports and obedience. Francis has a diverse background where he can pull from different experiences. Not every dog learns the same way as not every person learns the same way. He helps the dog learn in a fun active way. Making the dog want to train. He passes this knowledge off to owners and takes the time with them to understand their furry companion and what they need to do to fill its wants and needs. Thus, creating the perfect bond between man and dog.
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.
We absolutely love Dawn and Karisha. Dawn worked with our rescue beagle who we would not have been able to keep without her expert training. Abby had a few crate issues when she came home and Dawn came to the rescue immediately and took her back for additional behavior training. We’ve been happy to keep our visits to Off Leash boarding for both of our girls who are so excited when they get picked up. We feel good knowing they are being pampered when we are out of town. I highly recommend Off Leash for training and boarding.
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.
Chris was fantastic! My little husky was pulling and pulling on the leash so much it was impossible to take her anywhere. In a few short sessions he had her walking in a nice loose leash heel. Turns out the harness was encouraging my little husky pull more and more! I tell you what, I will be coming to Expert K9 Academy any time I need help getting my pups to listen! Thank you so much!!!!
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.
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.
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!!
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.
Canine and Company did great at training my dog in obedience and helping his anxiety. I look forward to training more together in the future.
He's the truth 💯💯 trainer!!!
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.
We provide basic/advance obedience home and personal protection. We pride ourselves on our knowledge and experience with dogs We teach the dogs proper behavior as well as educate you, the owner, on how to fairly and effectively communicate with your dog.
Hired michael a while back to help me and my dog Loki he did an amazing job and now I'm able to have Loki in my store with me
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!
