She was very good. She just had to cut my dogs nails & my dog gets kind of nervous. But everything went very well. I will recommend her to everyone.
I have a 1y/o yorkshire and maltese mixed dog with serious separation anxiety and some behavior issues. I was going through the dog trainers in my area and Jennifer caught my attention immediately- the review was almost 100% positive, saying how helpful and responsive she is. We scheduled a meeting and I ended up training & boarding my dog with her for about a month. The result was impressive: he's crate trained, he becomes quiet in the car, no more excessive barking... She even found out his favorite raw food and changed his diet...He used to have kibbles and wouldn't eat much every day.. Now he finishes every meal within 2 mins! He looks super healthy now!!! I'm definitely gonna board my dog with her again. Training and boarding are both amazing!!! SHE'S THE BEST!!
Peter has been helping train my very domineering rescue pup. He has been nothing short of amazing!!! He is patient and kind and takes his time with each session. Our dog is stubborn and aggressive towards men, week by week I have been seeing changes in our dogs behavior. I am surprised at how quickly he picks things up all in great part to Peter. I look forward to the changes that we will see in appointments to come. I would 100% recommended Peter if you are in need of a dog trainer.
Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.
Lisa is a highly gifted trainer! Her innate ability to instill calm behavior is unmatched by any trainer. Furthermore, her experience training horses gives her the ability to work with larger more unruly dogs. Where other trainers wanted to break the dog into submission or spoil them, Lisa walked a line that shows the dogs they are loved but are on the bottom of the totem pole. In addition, I was taught how to work with my dog in order to further his training. Her prices are more than fair and her results are amazing!
Sandy is awesome! She has been doing basic obedience training with our dogs and she has given us some great pointers. We recently started having an issue with one of our dogs being aggressive towards children. Sandy has gone above and beyond in trying to help us. We called her after one incident and she actually came right over to our house to talk to us about the situation, which was very reassuring. On another occasion when our dog snapped at a visitor's child, we called Sandy and she came right over to work with our dog and the child together. We have been so impressed with her level of commitment to helping us and our dogs. If you are looking for a caring and thoughtful trainer, we very highly recommend Sandy at The Pawsitive Experience!
I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.
Very knowledgeable and professional, only a few weeks in of training and I will only bring my dog ( future dogs) to All American K9. I love the attentiveness Stephen has/ pays to not only my dog but my wife and myself, he teaches you ways you wouldnt think of AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS. 3 weeks in and it's the best thing I could've done for my dog as well as myself
It's hard to know who to choose when hiring any professional. I have an 8 month old German Shepherd, and after doing much research trainers, I decided to go with ACT K9. I was so impressed from the very beginning! During the evaluation, I met John and Lindsey and 2 of John's dogs. I have never met more trained dogs in my life. John's interaction with them was amazing. A week later we started training my dog, Sasha. After one lesson, she was already learning to heel. We have only had 2 lessons so far, but Sasha is already listening so much better. John and Lindsey really know what they're doing. The training is as much for me as it is for my dog. I'm so happy I chose them!!!
We used Providence Dog Trainers:Off Leash K9 Training LLC to help us with our dog Eve. Becca our trainer was top notch!! Our dog needed some help with socialization skills as well as general obedience training. You've come to the absolute best dog trainers around!! I would highly recommend them!!!
Haven’t started training yet. I hired her for her knowledge and experience in training dogs. So easy to talk to. Answered all my questions.
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.
I’ve worked with Lynne Panno for many years with my dogs. She is very knowledgeable, patient and knows dogs and training methods extremely well. Training is really for us owners and Lynne is patient but quick to correct our errors - so that we are consistent in our training with our dogs and they always know what we want them to do.
Noelle is hands down the best dog trainer! We have a fearful German Shepherd that always had a hard time with new situations involving dogs and new people. Every new situation was a struggle for us and we knew she wasn't comfortable either and wanted to better her life and ours. Through the use of obedience and giving our dog Mia a "job" to do we have been working on her fears. It is AMAZING how much she has improved and is an overall happier dog! Mia is always very excited to see Noelle and responds to her so well. Noelle has changed our lives forever and we will always be very thankful and grateful for it.
I worked closely with Nicholas for life coaching for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. He is a phenomenal speaker and wonderful mentor who has an innate ability to track your negative thoughts and emotions and turn your mental state around to a more positive one. Because of him, I am now pursuing full recovery with my eating disorder, have now fully embraced my hearing disability, and am now helping other women learn to love themselves and recognize their worth. I also recently hired Nicholas as my personal service dog trainer (talk about a multi-faceted individual!), and he has quickly established a wonderful, respectable, and loving relationship with my dog. Nicholas exhibits patience, professionalism, and quality in his work. Don't miss out on working with this amazing individual!
Heidi is an excellent trainer. She not only clearly demonstrates what to do but explains why you are doing it that way. In just a couple of sessions my dogs are doing things I thought were impossible and my dogs have had 8 years of bad habits to correct.
Amazing!! I couldn't be happier with the training my two shepherds recieved. They are wonderful off leash, I can bring them anywhere! I get compliments on how well they are trained all the time. If you want high quality training of your dog you've found the perfect place. I would and will take all my future dogs here. Titan (17 months when trained) and Layla (7 months when trained) are still well behaved and listen. Yet act like dogs, they still have their own personalities, that was no broken from them in training as some other trainers have done.
She is amazing with the animals! She taught my dog (and me) most of the basic commands in just 45 mins with great results! She spent a good 2 hrs. Talking about ways I can help my dog (new rescue), and how she is willing to help me. I could not have found a better, more personable trainer than Kim.
Absolutely unbelievable experience thus far. Friendly, timely, flexible availability and location. Great with our puppy and he is already substantially improved with only 2 sessions. You will not be disappointed with Sandra!
I teach dog owners how their dog's mind works, and how to connect to the dog in a way it understands. I teach the dog owner how to be an effective pack leader so the dog will follow the owner out of respect, not because they have food treats.
