Susan gave 101%, doing all she could do to help us. We made progress after the first meeting which required trying to undo some of the damage done from previous dog trainers. She responds to questions immediately via email or calls or text. Susan puts her heart into her work.
I absolutely loved scotts approach and he gave me so much more information for my Frenchie that I hadn't heard from other dog trainers per sey. He was very pleasant and professional and if anyone needed help with thier dog I would highly recommend him!!!! Thanks Scott!!!!
Sherry had our aggressive shelter dog literally eating out of her hand within 30 seconds after first entering our door! With anyone else the dog would be barking & growling non-stop for who knows how long. She told us all kinds of tips & tricks, training us to train our dog. We both have had dogs all our lives but never one with so many issues. We are this dog's 3rd home according to the shelter. That alone should have been a red flag. Today after one visit, we have a much calmer dog who already is responding to the techniques Sherry taught us. We will be practicing them to see if we will need Sherry again for fine-tuning. So far we can see a big improvement in less than 24 hours & would definitely recommend her, especially for a strong-willed aggressive dog. It's a miracle!
We really love the in home setting used for training. Everything is done in a trainers home and the dogs are supervised 24hours a day. The trainers, and employees of Your Best Friends Dog House are great. They are very attentive to the human clients needs as well as the dogs and other animals. We were introduced to YBFDH about 3 years ago, we had an 8 year old Irish wolf hound and he was starting to act iffy. He would growl at the kids and was beginning to become aggressive to strangers. Our neighbor had used YBFDH for dog walking, and pet sitting so they mentioned to me they also offer dog training. We sent our old boy to learn some new things, and he came back without any of the negative behaviors he had previously shown. We now have a 1 year old Great Dane and he did his puppy and basic training at YBFDH. They do a great job!
Gina walks our dog everyday and is completely dependable and reliable. She has a true love for dogs which is completely obvious in all of her engagements with our dog... we're pretty sure he likes Gina more than us! I would absolutely recommend Gina as a walker and trainer for dogs.
Leslie is an excellent dog trainer, patient, diligent, organized...a true professional who we would recommend to any dog owner looking for a trainer. Paul & Molly
Michelle is an absolute wonderful trainer.........my 2 dogs have completely flipped 100% into completely different dogs.......when my 2 dogs first met Michelle they literally wanted to attack/ kill her .......we have been working with Michelle for 3 lessons. Both my dogs now can be approached by Michelle with no problems what so ever......they give kisses ....let her let them .....i can now walk both of them at the exact same time with no issues of pulling me......let me remind you my dogs are 80lbs and 105lbs ......so to be able to now walk both with out them pulling me is a miracle !!! We've had issues with our dog Hayzel being aggressive when it came to meeting new people and Michelle has been working with us to improve that and take it away completely......i am sooooooo Happy to have found Michelle to help me with both of our dogs !!!!! I don't know what I would do with out her ......probably be stressed out big time !!! She's amazing and she knows exactly what she's doing, so if you're looking for someone who is willing to help you please choose Michelle!!! She is our Miracle !!! 🤗🤗
Dee is amazing she is best dog trainer! My dog love her!
Marcus and Chris were great with our Lab. We had signed her up for a 10 day board and learn training program, and we see a marked improvement in her while walking on the leash - she is more responsive to commands, and it's so much easier to stop her from pulling on the leash when there are other dogs around. The trainers are really nice, and it's obvious they love dogs and love what they do. Would highly recommend them to other dog owners!!!
I made contact with 5 star canine to train my dog. Jason arrived at my house on time, explained his services and went to work immediately training my dog. My dog now listens to my commands. Unbelievable. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, expertise, and value. If you need your dog (s) trained, I would highly recommend contacting five star K9. I am glad I did .
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.
Sarah worked with me and my 4 year old Yellow Lab on greeting at the door, leash pulling and not jumping on people. To be honest I didn't think much could be done at his age and because no matter what I tried couldn't get him to improve. Sarah was amazing and helped tremendously. She is very calm and patient and was able to give me very simple training tools to use to work with my Lab. And it worked! She clearly loves animals and they really respond well to her. Sarah was always on time, met with me and my dog before training began and clearly explained the process at this initial appointment. I would highly recommend Sarah.
Piccalo has been participating in training with Stacy for over a year. Initially he was swimming and on the treadmill for weight loss and fitness. Then group classes to improve his socialization and impulse control. Piccalo is becoming a more balanced dog as a result of the patience and skill of Stacy and the rest of the staff at Four Legs Pets. They treat you like family.
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!
Jay is extremely attentive to details. He takes time to study your personality and lifestyle and pairs you up with the dog that can fit into that personality and lifestyle. He is always available to help answer all my questions about the health of my dog and even other dog owners he has no relationship with. I have learned that when it comes to dogs, Jay is always right. My dog got missing one day due to my negligence, and he gave me steps on how I can make sure my dog finds her way home, and before and hour, my dog was barking in front of my door. Jay is an exceptional and professional dog whisperer and I would always recommend him.
Stephanie’s knowledge of my dogs aggressive behavior alone was so impressive that I immediately knew she was the right trainer to handle My dogs fear and aggression issues. I’d never heard of day training and couldn’t believe that My dogs aggression could be fixed in such a short time, but her knowledge was impressive. I’m both amazed and so grateful for the work she did with my dog. The only downside was that it was a pricier than some of the other companies I talked to, but totally worth the investment in the end! I would and have recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer!! Thank you Stephanie!
I’m looking forward to working with Sev’s Smarty Paws. Tracy was helpful and professional from her first contact with me. Our consultation showed me she is exactly what we are looking for in a trainer for our dogs.
In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She wont let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dogs individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. Shes reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. Shes genuine. She will make your dog shine.
