We got our puppy, Sophia Rae, on February 23, 2015. She was exactly 8 weeks from the day she was born. She is a beautifulCream Retriever and her parentsare both well over 80 lbs. so we know Sophia will be a rather large dog as well. When we got her, she was so full of energy but also very aggressive. She would nip, bite, bark constantly, jump up on people, pull on and actually eat our clothes, was not able to take walks with us, etc. She was totallyuncontrollable. And we have two grandbabies that are 1 and 3 and we didn't want Sophia to attack either of them! My husband and I were at our wits end because she was not learning from us and she refused to listen to the word ''NO'. She had total control over our household at just 2 months and 14 lbs! We knew we had to do something to teach her to become a very manageable and loving puppy because she was growing fast! We searched the internet and found Thumbtacks and then found Lee Seibold's Dog Training Website. We checked out his videos and were amazed at what Lee could do in a matter of minutes... all without any treats! So we immediately got in touch with him and decided to drop Sophia off at Lee's home for one week, not only to give us a break, but also to see what he could do with Sophia. We picked her up one week later and Lee spent well over an hour with us teaching us what he had taught Sophia... at less than 3 months old! We were literally amazed when he finally brought Sophia out! She was a totally different puppy! No more jumping up on anyone, no more biting, chewing on clothes, no more barking! Lee was able in one week to do what we could have never done! He taught her to sit, stay, get on her bed and stay there, go in her crate at night without a fuss, walk ...off leash..., stay..'off leash', take walks with us without pulling on her chain, 'stay' at the door to be let out or let in using our commands, and actually knew our commands! And Sophia loves US even more for all the love and praise that we give her when she's being good and our adorable puppy! Sophia is still so very much our 'silly heart puppy' and loves to run and play ball and everything else you'd expect a puppy to do, but in one week she went from an awful aggressive alpha puppy to a very well behaved puppy! We now can take her out to public places and know she will be good and well behaved. We get many, many compliments from many, many people on how good and well behaved Sophia is at such a young age!!! Yay! We would definitely recommend Lee to anyone that needs a lesson or two in training your puppy or dog! Lee has a life time guarantee on his training just in case your puppy creeps back to its 'old habits' of trying to be the alpha dog!!!! LEE, we cannot thank you enough for teachingSophia AND US that WE are the alpha dogs, not HER, and for still keeping her spirits up at the same time so she can still be our very 'Silly Heart Sophia'!!!!!
Excellent experience. Better than I imagined. John has extensive knowledge about training dogs (& people). He brought his own dog to help with the training. I highly recommend K9 Prep school and cannot day enough great things about John!!!
Loved working with Marianna training our dogs! She's very intuitive and very positive in her approach and we got farther in our training than I ever expected we would. Thanks Marianna!!! 😄
Kellie is a very knowledgeable trainer who specializes in positive reinforcement and training. She is so great about answering my questions and easing my concerns. She also dog sits and my dog absolutely LOVED being with her for a night. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help in training their dogs
Katherine walked my dog, Willie, one day when I was unable to. She was punctual and professional, yet friendly and easy to talk with. Katherine appears to be very knowledgeable about dogs and dog behavior, and she interacted quite well with Willie. Katherine walked Willie for a good hour, and while walking, provided him with water. I would readily hire her again without reservation.
Phenomenal experience. Top of the line training. Seeing a dog go from hyper and out of control, to be completely obedient...and off leash!
I learned about what I need to do to ensure future success with my puppy. Sherry is knowledgeable and understands how to train dogs. Very impressed
Robbie has been to our home twice and our doxies just love her! She is professional and always on time. She has a wonderful presence about her that exudes cool, calm, and collected. Her positive reinforcement style of training produces results quickly! We have more work to do, but getting the basics down has been quick and effective. Our dogs seem more calm, happier, and more confident thanks to Robbie's training. Additionally, Scott and I feel that we have regained control of the home and we also feel more calm and confident in our ability to be great dog owners
Personal attention to training and to teaching me the way to train my dog on our own time.
Dawn has been so patient with me and my dog Scout. Not only has she helped to train Scout, but he has given me so much insight about where some of his behavior comes from. I won't lie Scout is a difficult dog, but she has been amazing with him! Even the cat likes her!! I have had success with the methods she has taught us and Scout continues to improve. I reccomend her to anyone who needs dog training!
Carri is very sweet and kind when working with my dog Buddy. Her love for animals shines bright! I would totally recommended her for any kind of dog training. Most importantly my dog likes her and I trust her with Buddy!
Justine's been absolutely amazing. I have a very smart, but sometimes very stubborn pup who was experiencing a little bit of reactive behavior on leash. She's worked so well with my dog and myself to understand the why's and how's of training. You can tell she really cares about the dogs also. Would absolutely recommend!
The BloomingPaws trainers have done some excellent training with my dog Shadow. She went from a wild little puppy to a nice dog to live with. I was amazed when I showed up to our lesson and she was listening to everything we said and wasn't jumping all over me.
I ADOPTED A 4 MONTH OLD BORDER COLLIE/ WELSH CORGI WHO DEFINITELY HAD A MIND OF HIS OWN. LORA TOOK HIM TO HER HOUSE TO WORK WITH HIM AND UPON HIS RETURN TO ME HE WAS WELL BEHAVED AND LISTENED TO ME. HE IS NOW ALMOST 3 YEARS AND ADORES LORA VERY MUCH AS SHE HAS LOTS OF PATIENCE AND LOVES EVERY DOG SHE HAS TRAINED OVER THE YEARS!!!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER AND SHE ALWAYS WANTS THE BEST FOR THE DOG AND THEIR OWNER AND FAMILY.
I have a nine year old, minimally trained, Golden Retriever who has no social skills. I also have an 80 year old mother who lives with me. My mother tripped over my Golden, broke her arm and leg, a while back, and I have been contemplating giving my dog away to a rescue group. My last hope was Jenn. She came to my home and evaluated Einey. It is amazing. After only six sessions, he is a different dog. He is following commands, going to his "spot" whenever he is in my mom's path, and I am able to take calm walks with him. My son, who lives out of town, could not believe Einey's great behavior, when he was visiting. Jenn deserves her own show!! I am so thankful that I am able to keep my beloved doggie and feel assured that my mom is safe from another fall. Thanks again, Jenn. You're the best!
