Scott is a true professional. He is extremely knowledgable when it comes to puppy and dog training. Helping me create a training plan for my puppy. He encouraged me to keep in contact with him, giving him updates on how the training was going and any questions or concerns I may have. I would recommend him to anyone looking for help in training their puppy or dog.
Sherry is the BEST! She was able to teach me and my dog. Very knowledgeable about dogs. Warm and welcoming! Looking forward to our next session. I was giving up hope for my new puppy, with her training we be a family.
We sent our dog Trapper for training with Diana. He is an 8 month old German Shepard. We sent him for basic puppy training and he is doing very well now that he is home. We wanted a program that was more personal and one on one, as we have heard horror stories about boarding kennels. It was great to know he would be in a loving home with other dogs rather than a scary leaky basement kennel area. Also the trainer kept in contact daily with updates and tips to caring for him once he was home. All in all our experience was great! We highly recommend YBFDH!
She is great with our puppy and was able to start right away. You can tell she loves dogs, and since she started coming by our puppy has been happier at the end of the day when we get home.
She has gotten to know my family and guided us well in training our pup!
Nancy and Angelica are a perfect match for our pups! My dogs are wild and Nancy has committed to keep training with them on their walks and work on basics commands. Nancy always follows up walks with fun photos and I love that part. She is extremely reliable and flexible with times and days, and I appreciate that with a busy schedule. We are sold!!! We appreciate you Nancy.
Leslie put me at ease the moment she walked through my front door! She is so easy to talk to about any issues concerning my dog and takes the time and care to personalize training to that dogs needs. Her training method allows for the puppy parent to both see Leslie herself do it and then for me to do it myself, since us humans needs training too! It's very crucial that the puppy parents takes and use her guidance as it will pay off immensely! My puppy, Rhett,was constantly love biting for attention and bothering us during non play time, like dinner. Thanks to her training (me and Rhett that is, lol), he is not nipping and knows when we go to eat, it's not play time. He's also much improved with greetings,has better focus, and is well in his way to be an excellent Canine Citizen! We love, Leslie! 2 paws up! !
Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom
I was already sharing my home with 2 dogs and I deeply wanted "A" puppy. I ended up coming home with 3 rescue puppies. I was honestly in tears when one of my pups developed sibling aggression. My very diverse pack was not blending. That's when I found Devious To Delightful Dogs. Dee's natural ability to understand pet/human relationships is unbelievable. Her passion for training is equal to her compassion for her clients (both furry and furless). Dee has taught me how to learn from my pets as well as how to teach/train them. She has an amazing love in her heart for animals and it shines through with her positive outlook. Thanks to her above and beyond approach I now belong to a happy and more unified pack. Devious To Delightful Dogs is simply the best.
Chris was great to work for training my puppy Lily. I really liked that he listened to what I wanted to work on, and made sure to personalize our lessons based on what I wanted. He was very attentive, and also made sure to check in between training sessions, which was very much appreciated. I would absolutely recommend Takacs Dog Training to anyone looking for a great in home trainer!
I was super impressed with the quality of dog training I received and I def plan on bringing Hobbs back for more! Jason is an awesome guy and I can’t wait for my next session.
I have trained threw different dogs with A plus two puppies and one rescued adult. Each of them learned so much as did I from Lindy and her staff! They clearly love animals and know what to do or say to help each individual and situation. Great puppy classes for learning different training techniques socialization and basic obedience. All of my dogs learned good basic obedience each in their own way as Lindy knows how to adjust the technique correction and praise to each individual dog wether they are easy going stubborn or shy. Advanced classes are fun and offer continuing training and bonding with you dog! Love A plus and would recommend any one with a dog young or old train there!
Scott did a great job with house training/off leash training with my dog, Penny, and later bird training.
Jeanie Murray: Well, seven years ago Tom McMurchie worked with me and my 1-year old Labradoodle, Rush, in Phoenix AZ. I don't have adequate words to explain how wonderful the experience was. Tom was knowledgeable, professional, patient, humane, and just darn perfect. He trained me as well to make Rush an awesome, well-mannered family member. Then, Tom moved to Chicago. Rush is 8 years old (still perfect), but Tom has always been available for me to talk to him on the phone with dog-training advice. Then we brought a second Labradoodle into our home at 8 weeks old, Reagan. Do I ever wish Tom was still here to work with me and Reagan, who is a work in progress (almost 3 years old now). Actually, Tom did advise from afar when I had questions about Reagan. If you are looking for that perfect person to work with you and your dog, don't look any further than Tom McMurchie. Thanks, Tom!
Jim has been reliable, professional and trustworthy. Wouldn't go anywhere else with my dog training needs.
I could not say enough good things about working with Stephanie when it came to training my dog. I have a rambunctious bulldog who's a year and a half. Nothing but behavioral problems, nipping, chewing things, eating things, and not coming when called. She was always on time, patient with my dog and myself, and made me feel comfortable with having her take care of my pup. I would HIGHLY recommend having her train your dog. I was thoroughly impressed to say the least!! I fully intend on utilizing this training in the future with future dogs as well.
Great extra service added by YBFDH!! This place was really great with working out our dogs aggression, and then when we were ready they helped us get him certified as an emotional support dog. I noticed a review on here or their other page stating that a dog had been in a fight. I am the owner of the second dog in this " fight". The story in the review below is inaccurate. The owner of YBFDH acted as any business owner would in the situation that was presented. I think it is malicious and frankly disgusting to post such a review. YBFDH/AT YOUR SERVICE has been a god send for our family! If you're not satisfied with your experience I will reimburse you for your training costs!
