Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

Peter provided exactly the service that he described to me when he messaged me with a quote. He gives you the tools needed to train your dog. Its up to the owner to follow through but if you follow Peter's training you and your dog will be well on your way.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Last night I received my new boy, Abel from Jenny McPhee at Omni K9. Abel was shipped from Massachusetts to my place in California, and when Abel was unloaded from the transport van, I called his name and it was like an instant bond. I have never seen a bad pup come from Omni K9, they are all stable, level headed, excellently bred working dogs. Jenny sent Abel's x-rays of his hips and elbows, and they are excellent. No issues at all! Abel is a year and a half old and was started on his training when he was a pup by Jenny and Nick. I can vouch for their training as I was playing around with some obedience work with Abel today. His recall, heel, down/stay are all on point! More so that I thought it would be since he is a green dog. The amount of time, love, care and training Jenny has for all of her dogs is phenomenal and it all shows through each of them. Abel was her boy, her companion, and his demeanor is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend Nick and Jenny's training at Omni K9 and Jenny for her Omni K9 Gear products to anyone looking for an excellent training equipment and amazing working dogs!!

I brought my 5 year old English Mastiff here for behavioral training, she was attack on site aggressive with people, dogs, kids and cats. After just one session I noticed a change in her attitude, by the thrid session with Omni K9Training I could bring her around with no muzzle! It's a couple months after her sessions were finished and I can now bring her out in public, let her off leash and even allow people to pet her! I would have had to put her down if it had not been for the incredible training we received here!

Blake was a great trainer in helping me with my dog who had crate anxiety. When I got my dog he couldn't even stay in the crate for an hour without hurting himself, Blake was caring and helped train him to where he can stay in the crate for full work days no problem. She also cared enough to teach him obedience and helped my dog become confident in being away from me. Being trained by her was the best thing that could have happened for my dog.

Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.

Katy has been an AMAZING trainer, she has been training my golden retriever puppy to be my service dog. He has learned so much in just a few short weeks. I have nothing but positive feedback for Katy. Incredible trainer that I look forward to continuing working with!

Heather was very informative and provided excellent training documentation. we discussed Sammy's issues and she explained how to handle them. she was very patient to listen to my litany of the problems Sammy and I have. Sammy is finicky and will not eat regularly. Heather explained that until Sammy's eating habits improved, his obedience will lag as well. we are having marked improvement as we continue to work on both. he's doing much better, thanks Heather! ciao!

No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.

I got connected to Conmon Sense K9 through social media. I was looking for a service dog for my daughter that would also be a good family dog. After corresponding with Chelsea several for weeks I made the decision to go forward with it. Chelsea came to our home to meet us m. She got to know us and what we were looking for and found us a perfect match-Georgia Belle. Chelsea then began working with us, training and coaching for obedience then trained for my daughter’s specific needs. It was not a one-size-fits all approach. A few months passed and I felt like I might want to get another dog, because our experience with Chelsea had been so amazing we decided to let her know so she could match us up again. Within a few weeks we got a call to meet a young female silver lab Silverado - “Rado”. Needless to say, we met her and took her home the same day. We had already arranged her first three training sessions with Common Sense K9. Our family is complete, thanks to Chelsea and Commin Sense K9.

Linda has taken such wonderful care of not only my own dog, who is challenging at best, but several Foster dogs I have had in my home. She is incredibly flexible and juggles her schedule to accommodate the client. She knows a great deal about dogs and their behavior and has offered helpful professional tips when appropriate. I cannot recommend Linda enough and my dogs would agree. I do not know what I would do without her!

Robin Billings is a remarkable trainer.. She trained a golden retriever Jack when he was just a puppy. Robin also taught Jack how to swim ..she gave him the confidence and in one session he started swimming and now loves to swim everything single day. Robin also trained Jack to walk on the treadmill to get exercise and build up his muscles in his leg after being attacked by neighbors.dogs. she also trained Jack to use a ramp to get into our s u v. My husband and I think that Robin is the best ....and our boy Jack just loves her.. She uses her abilities to train dogs with understanding ..patients. and love. we would recommend Robin to people looking for the Best trainer . Larry and Tina .

Robin Billings is an experienced dog trainer. Robin has the innate ability to "read" your dog, and then she can help you understand how to train your dog. Robin's training methods are positive, not punitive. You and your dog will both enjoy having Robin instruct you - whether it you are training house manners or for the obedience ring.

Jessica of Wagging Trails has been walking our dog for almost 4 years. She takes wonderful care of our dog and we wouldn't think of using anyone else. She is professional and timely and always leaves us notes about their walks. We couldn't ask for a better dog walker and friend to our dog!

Zephyr has mastered the art of dog training. Within minutes of our first session our previously untrained, recently adopted dog was sitting and heeling. We were trying to reduce his low level anxiety by working with him on basic obedience skills. Zephyr was very patient with me as I learned how to give the commands and how to use the leash. He was also very kind and loving to my dog, which I know is very important to most dog owners. My dog has shown less anxiety and greatly increased obedience skills in just three sessions with Zephyr. We are already recommending his services to family and friends with dogs!

About

I started teaching while I was the animal officer for the Town of Falmouth because the area dog trainers would not help everyone in need in my community. Having a background with horses and the realization that traditional dog training wasn't preparing people for what they would face in real life, I developed a program that covers all of the bases for success in today's lifestyles. This program heavily centers on teaching all members of the dog's family how to work in unison with their dogs, to understand their dog's limitations as animals and life from their dog's point of view. This program also changes the paradigm about dogs, asking dog owners to focus beyond "rescuing" but to defend their dogs from the miscommunication that runs rampant between people and dogs that when problems arise, the dog is saddled with all of the blame.
