We had such a great time working with Earl and our new dog Riley. Earl was very helpful in showing us what was necessary to keep Riley from walking us, instead of us walking her! She is already showing signs of improvement and Earl's promise to be our lifelong trainer makes me feel very confident that we'll have his guidance and help every step of the way! I personally have never had a dog before, so and I was nervous about training her incorrectly (as new dog owners so often do). After our session with Earl I feel confident and ready to help our new addition become the best doggy she can be! I would definitely recommend Earl's services to anyone looking for some assistance on training their dog--young or old!
Melissa went above and beyond to help us with our puppy! She even picked up and dropped off our pet and stayed to work with us at the end of the week, on how to continue our dog's training. I like that Melissa works with your dog in her home to train them on manners that you will need in the household. She was very patient, positive, and effective. We now have a much better mannered pooch, thanks to Melissa!
These guys are great! They leave journal and write in it every day so I know how my pup did on walk/visit. Show up on time. Very responsive and okay with last minute changes. I also used their obedience training for my dog and we are improving every day!
We are now on the road to having a well trained dog and will use this service again in the near future for more advice and experience.
Maris is just wonderful to work with! Our dog has anxiety and was very difficult to walk. He would pull and was very dog reactive on walks. She worked with us on techniques to use to make him more comfortable and confident. We loved that she brought her dogs for us to work with on his dog reactivity. Around the 3rd or 4th week of training, he was already walking so much better. He walks right by my side. By the end of our 6th session, he was able to walk next to her dogs without any negative reactions towards the dogs. I would highly recommend working with For the Dogs training!
Maureen is awesome. She is great with my retriever and we've seen so much progress in a very short time. She shows a real knack for training and love for dogs as well as an ability to help me as a dog owner. Thank you Maureen!
Jeff did a great job training my dog and training me. Excellent results, Highly recommend.
Angela has a very high level of knowledge in both dog behavior and dog training. She was always on time for each appointment and was willing to stay a little late to make sure I understood each facet of the training. You can tell she loves dogs and loves helping people train their dog. She would always return my call when I had questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about training their dog.
My experience with Brianne was first class all the way. She was prompt, professional, and I could honestly tell she cared more about my comfort and my dogs success than just a paycheck. This is why I went with her vrs the other area trainers I interviewed. Yes I said interviewed, I'm tough to deal with and even harder to please. (I was also impressed with her extensive backround) My pup is about a year and a half old, he was a rescue and boy was he extremely difficult. We went with a 3 week customized boarding program. She brought him back for play dates once a week as well as accommodated my schedule. She sent pictures and video updates through out the process as well. (The pics and video was an awesome touch) She spent time teaching me and helping me work with my pup (Charlie), this made for a smooth transition. She came out the following week for another helpful training session, she also offered additional touch up training or I guess advanced training time if I wanted. I don't think we need it, he actually listens now. Having control and trusting him off leash was the biggest miracle that I honestly didn't see happening. But it did. Adopting him was extremely stressful because he was just a wild man, after 3 weeks with Brianne things are 100x better. Brianne I can't thank you enough. Charlie misses you.
Jacque does an excellent job training she has trained both of ours. Our relationship with our dogs is much better now thanks to her.
My work is not just work it's my life. My passion to help humans and dogs find harmony.
I'm dedicated to help families have a well-mannered dog that can be easily controlled by the family. I also think that dogs need plenty of exercise to feel their best. Thank you.
Having grown up in a farm in Louisiana, I have had the opportunity to have a multitude of animals in my life ranging from the "normal" farm animals and pets to the "exotic." While I love all animals, I understand dogs the best and have a great deal of training experience with them. I approach training with love and compassion. I also train the dog's owners because many times it is the people who need the real training. I am never harsh, but I do take control of the immediate situation.
I teach dogs how to have house manners. I also teach them how to walk on a leash without pulling. I also enjoy walking dogs.
I have been training for over 25 years. I started working with the police department. I went into the dog search and rescue training. Then I went into the service dog training. I have trained all kinds of dogs for all kinds of situations.
I listen to what my clients want and respect what they want. I focus on what im doing and give my all.
I provide training of dogs in basic and some advance classes. I teach owners about the bad things we must not teach our or your dogs.
I have a service dog that I trained and I would like to help people train their own dogs and train service dogs for them or help them train their own service dog.
I offer positive dog training classes. I also do pet setting. I will come in while you are working or taking a vacation. I will come in and feed your pets and play and walk your dog.
