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.
I'm training my Great Dane pup to be my seizure alert/service dog and hired Ms Kristie to get my pup at least to the point where I'm in control over her so I could do my part of her training easier and let me tell you I am beyond happy and could not have asked for a better trainer! Kristie is the kindest and sweetest person I've ever met and does her job in such a way it's just amazing! I am so glad I used this service and found her. And I would defiantly and highly recommend Kristie! Actually I have a fb page for my dogs journey to become my SA/SD and I speak very highly of her on there already! If you need a trainer for your pup defiantly go with the best and the BEST IS KRISTIE TANKARD!!! 😃
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!!!
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.
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.
We did a 6 week obedience training with Cris and are so pleased with the progress we've seen in our 11 month old Blue Heeler! Cris catered each lesson to Aussie's progress and our specific concerns, and we came away with a lot of great tools to help us with the specific issues we've been having. Specifically, Aussie was uncontrollable on the leash when other dogs were around. Now 6 weeks later, we know how to regain Aussie's attention and keep him focused on us. We are MUCH more comfortable going out for walks because of it! As a plus, Cris is super flexible when scheduling trainings and meets you for your convenience! We definitely plan to call back Expert K9 Academy for more advanced courses in the future!
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.
Yvonne is a wonderful dog trainer she had helped us with our fearful Border Collie.
I reached out on Thumbtack for a dog trainer and Dawn responded within 15 minutes. She patiently explained the process involved to train my 7-year old Dachshund, who - shame on me - previously had no obedience training. Then Dawn came to my house to meet Max and give her assessment. At the appointed day/time, Dawn arrived and led Max away for a couple of weeks of off-leash training. He's still "at camp" and I'm getting periodic progress reports from Dawn, laced with a little humor. I miss the little guy and am really looking forward to seeing the results! Mark Baker
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.
This training has taken our dog, Bowie, to the next level and has brought our family together. Before everyone had their own way of instructing Bowie. Now that's gone and he is happier and no longer confused. Bryan is committed and loves his work with dogs. He is a pleasure to work with and gives clear instruction that breeds success. This training makes having a dog double enjoyable! The results are instant!
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!!
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.
My puppy is trained. It seems that I am the one who really needed the training all along. She knows her stuff and is super easy to work with. Helps you throw away the embarrassment as far as feeling like a failure in training my dog. We Will be back!
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.
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.
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!

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.
