Dee is amazing she is best dog trainer! My dog love her!
Scott did a great job of getting to root of my german shepherd's behavioral issues and identified what I could be doing better. Within one hour I was walking my dog without issues. Since our session, my dog and I are enjoying near-perfect walks as she a far-less distracted by her surroundings and more focused on me. At home, she is calmer and I noticed much less barking which is a nice plus. Overall, I am pleased that I could have this much control after one session. I would highly recommend Scott for any dog training needs.
Jim provides the creme de la creme in dog training. His knowledge and professionalism are outstanding. He is sincere and takes the time to listen to you and your dog. The changes he has implemented in our dogs life as well as our family is greatly appreciated and worth every dollar spent. Thanks Jim!
I am delighted to write a review for Sherry from Love, Honor and Obey. I have a 9 month old- very large Great Dane. I was having trouble walking him (he knocked me down twice), he needed to learn commands, and I needed him to learn to obey. I found the price to be very reasonable- I was surprised at how affordable one-on-one training in my house was ( I was not confident enough to take my dog out to a group training as I didn't feel it was safe-he was too strong for me to control). First visit, Sherry requested that all family members were present and she asked each one of us what our training goals were (even the kids)-this was very helpful. I learned how to properly walk this dog at our first session, and by the end of the 2nd session, I could walk him confidently by myself. Sherry has a tremendous amount of experience in dog training and that is evident from the start. I am someone who has had dogs all my life, and I have learned so much- from nutrition to proper collars/harness, to appropriate toys. Sherry gave me a nice instruction manual with LOADS of good information. Sherry has made herself available by phone for any issues/questions that arise between training sessions. We have completed 4 lessons and I am amazed at how well we are all doing. It is nice to see Sherry in action, to see how well she can control a dog that is twice her size-using only positive reinforcement.
Working with with Pawfect Dog Training was an amazing experience. We adopted a new puppy from the shelter and wanted to crate train her, so she would be comfortable in her crate when we were not home. Matthew did a great job training our dog to go into the crate on her own and feel comfortable in there. More importantly he helped teach us the right way to train her and taught us how to keep up with that training to get positive results. After only a few weeks of working with Pawfect and keeping up with our training at home, our puppy had no problem going in her crate on her own. Now she is so comfortable with her crate that she will go relax in there even when we are home! I definitely recommend anybody to work with Pawfect Dog Training to help train their dogs!
She is very professional and our pups listened and got a long with her very well. She gave us valuable insight and generally cares about our pups. She also is always looking for ways to improve her training.
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! !
She was a tremendous help. She came in today, evaluated my dog and gave me lots of helpful hints. She is highly recommended.
Chris and Diane are excellent dog trainers. They are truly committed to helping an owner reach their dog training goals. I highly recommend using them for dog training services!
Scott did a great job with house training/off leash training with my dog, Penny, and later bird training.
Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!
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.
I was really nervous when I set out to find a dog trainer for my German Shepherd, but all that was put to ease when Nicole came by for a meet and greet with my dog. She explained to me all of her training methods and answered any questions I had. She was very easy to talk to about any problems I had concerning my dog. And after three weeks of her board and train program, I am wowed! Her results are outstanding. My dog now gives me her full attention, is much more calm, and no longer pulls while walking. I kniw these
I'm convinced we have the best dog walker ever! She is so sweet and so great with our dog. Our dog (who judges people) immediately warmed to her. Even when we have had to work late or something came up she was there to check on him as a favor to us. Words cannot express how much we appreciate and are thankfully to have found her, we owe much to her!
Sharlene was great! What a pleasure to go out of town and not worry about the dog. Very professional and punctual.
