My dog is quite stubborn with everybody pretty much but myself. He's food aggressive and personal & territory space aggressive. We' ve had issues with him attacking my other dog & I have to keep them separated he is so territorial with his food & me that I am constantly on alert with him. It all came to a head when he became territorial over a piece of Rawhide and shook my 17 year old cat and broke her leg and injured her badly we had to put her down, which is also the same option that I have out was ready to do with him. Darius came in and worked on some basic training skills and we're basically having to start from scratch. The dog minds me when it suits his needs which is pretty much most the time but we do have issues with a lot of training not only the dog but myself. So Darius is beginning to help us and we're starting a new regimen and things seem to be working great we've only been through the introductory session but I'm impressed. We'll see how everything works out. I'm happy so far.

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.

They were able to train my dog in a way that I can now effectively communicate to him. Previously he would bark at strangers but now he is obedient. I highly recommend them and will consider putting my other dog too.

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.

Within minutes of putting up my request on Thumbtack, Dawn responded with what ended up to be an amazing offer for training. I just received my dog back yesterday, and I can already see the results. She did a wonderful job and worked with him on everything I asked, and as of now, everything I have seen has been a success. She sends periodic updates while your dog is away just like she promises, and makes it much easier to leave your furry friends for the allotted time. Dawn went above and beyond in helping my dog and myself, and the training has transferred excellently. I would highly recommend this service to anyone trying to take the obedience of their dog to the next level with the amazing Off Leash training.

Our white lab went to training camp for two weeks. We've had two labs previously and never had issues with training, but our little guy (10 months) was a good boy, but silly and very strong willed. There were times where we were all feeling frustrated. I researched several dog training camps and one on one canine training in GA and felt a total peace with Oh Good Dog. We did the two week camp and Francis was wonderful. Our dog came back so much calmer, more assured of himself and was actually holding all of his commands. He played hard and worked efficiently while at camp. We were sent videos and photos which helped us make it without having him around. What I loved is that they take your dog on field trips and to the park so they learn to keep their commands in day to day distractions and learn to obey in different scenarios. When we did the end of training with Francis to see his progress, where we learned how to implement everything, we could all see how close Wyatt had become with Francis which made us so happy. I Highly recommend Oh Good Dog.

Erika is my go-to person for dog training and dog sitting! I have two rescue dogs, both adopted at the age of two with no training. Needless to say I needed help badly! Now my pups sit and wait to go in and out of doors, and they will do most anything for a treat. It's also nice to be able to go out of town and not have to worry about my fur babies! She's the only one I trust with them (and also to stay at my home with them), and she sends me plenty of updates while I'm gone.

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!

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!

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.
