This took my a while to post with my crazy life, but Jennifer came to our house last winter to help deal with an aggression issue with a dog (not our own but of a relative) and our new baby. She went above and beyond to help us, and it was more like a therapy session than dog training! That said, it was clear she knew what she was doing with both the other dog and even with our own usually bouncy dog who greeted her politely. We hope to some day hire her again.
His Training With My Mollie, The Dog Is Like Magic. I Noticed My Mollie's Behavior Changes Just Over Night. Peter Is A Wonderful Trainer.
Theresa was fantastic with our dog Olive. she has an extensive amount of knowlege when it comes to dog training it was very impressive. She came prepared with treats and clickers and an excitement to train. Can't wait for our next session!
I took Laila, my 10 week old Corgi, to Lisa to do her puppy program. Lisa was extremely friendly, helpful and informative. 8 to 12 weeks is a critical time in puppy development. The things they experience during this time, and how they experience them, shape their behaviors and attitudes as adults. Lisa used her expertise to facilitate many of these experiences in a constructive manner. Laila furthered her understanding of how to interact with other dogs appropriately and was encouraged to explore her environment and respond to new experiences with bravery. Laila was also started on a rigid feeding and bathroom schedule which was then provided to me in writing with great detail. A consistent schedule is essential for instilling house breaking habits in dogs. Lisa's experience and expertise is extensive and readily apparent. She was more than happy to answer all of my questions both during the program and in the time that has elapsed since it's completion. Laila has had minor behavioral set backs, and Lisa was there to walk me through corrective actions. Laila is now 16 weeks old and is doing great! I was able to use the things Lisa taught me to effectively continue Lailas training. The most important thing Lisa helped me understand is the way dogs think and learn. Understanding the way dogs learn is the difference between having a recipe and having a working knowledge. If this sounds like something your dog needs, I highly recommend that you contact Lisa because I was thoroughly satisfied with my experience.
Amanda is doing a great job helping me with my dog Darla's training. Amanda comes to my house for the sessions which I really like. I hired her for 4 sessions and have had 3 sessions so far with the 4th session scheduled in a few weeks. I adopted Darla from the SPCA and she came with a lot of baggage and fears that I keep discovering as things occur. Her biggest fears were people, noises, & other animals. Her fear was so great that she showed aggression (not towards me but towards the person, noise, or animal) which was worrisome for me because I wanted her to have a good quality of life with me. I've seen such an improvement in Darla's behavior already and we,be only had 3 sessions so far. She's learned quite a few commands, she is far less fearful of people, handles her fears of noises much better, & we're still working on her reaction to other animals but it has improved greatly. Amanda has suggested & shown me different options to try when these situations arise and they're working do well. All in all I'm very pleased with Amanda & the training sessions. I love the post session training notes because they help me to remember everything we covered during the session. I would highly recommend Amanda at Good Dogs to anyone who is having issues with their furry family members. Amanda is very knowledgeable, approaches everything with a positive attitude, uses positive reinforcement, and is so good & kind to my dog. I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience.
My first experience with a private trainer for my pooch and I couldn't have asked for a better person. Sandy is professional yet down to earth, my dog, kokobutt, who is afraid of the world, loves her! "Aunty Sandy" is amazing at training and my dog has come a long way. I will continue to use her services and recommend her to anyone seeking assistance to train their dogs.
I called John to help me train my 3 month old French Bulldog puppy, Luca, as I wanted to get start training him as soon as possible. John assured me this was a great decision and that no puppy is too young to learn; he was right! John came to my house for 3 sessions (2 indoor, 1 outdoor). Instead of training Luca, I felt as if John trained me! He taught me exercises that would help establish myself as the leader in the pack, which have proved successful. His training techniques are not only effective but were also easy for me to use on my own once the 3 sessions had ended. I highly recommend John and his valuable techniques.
Rebecca came to our house for 4 training sessions with our puppy. We are very pleased with her methods and are seeing great progress with Sadie! We are going to work on all of our newly learned skills for a few weeks and may have her back for a couple of follow up sessions after that. We highly recommend Rebecca for your training needs. Not only were the sessions very helpful, but she also was kind enough to send several emails back and forth before and after we hired her to make sure that she was providing the best possible advice and experience for our puppy. Thanks Rebecca!
So far Mike has provided us with the basic training techniques to train our 1 year old dog Bentley. In just 2 sessions she is learning the house rules. Thanks so much.
Kristen is an amazing trainer! She really connects with your dog and get what works for them. Easy step by step instructions and commands so you can always keep up with the training on your own. She even takes time out of her own day to help via Facebook, text, or even in person if needed. I can't recommend her enough!
At first I thought the price may have been a little on the high side but after speaking with the gentleman I realized his knowledge alone was well worth the money so I tried him out and it worked wonders well worth the money time and effort spend training with him one-on-one and with my best 4 legged friend Pugsley major improvements after the first session I was very impressed after the 4th session my dog is walking by himself in the park ignoring all the Ruckus he will sit stay and wait for me outside of a store I am so happy.
Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!
I went to Jezzie paws with a new 4 month old golden retriever who hadn’t had any training. Jessica is amazing. She trains in a loving and caring way using positive reinforcement. I would definitely recommend going to Jezzie paws for any kind of training. She can handle it all.
We have an older Doberman and a new puppy Doberman, Krystal was excellent. We really like her style of training and we've already noticed improvements after only one session. We plan on continuing to use her services!
Yvonne is AWESOME !!! We adopted 2 shelter dogs and found Yvonne to help us understand them. We have had 4 other dogs, went through training with all of them but we have learned so much more from Yvonne!! We HIGHLY recommend her she knows her stuff !!!!
We have been coming to Lynn for training our dogs, and us, for almost 20 years. She is the Best. We are grateful to Lynn for her excellent care, her love for dogs, patience and Kindness. She helps us have more confidence and better skills when training. Monday nights,our favorite time of the week, It's girls night out for our dog Izzy and me. Izzy is so happy training with Lynn. Her tail wags through the entire class. Lynn is always a phone call away for questions and advice. From 2 very happy students, Izzy and shelly. Thank you Lynn 🐾🐶💕
Auntie Maggs does a lot of fun activities and training with all the dogs. She is very sweet, caring & will help anybody who needs it. My dog loves her and always comes home so happy from being with Maggie, thank you so much for everything you have taught her & will teach her in the future! Keep it up, you're the best!
Otto is our 9-month-old, 100 pound Newfoundland who we were having a hard time training at home. He's loving and smart, but he can be stubborn when he thinks he can get away with it! We were introduced to Zach and Leila and quickly started their two-week, basic training course. We couldn't be happier with how things went! Otto is world's better at walking on the leash, greeting new people, sitting, laying down, staying in place, using his climb, and following the basic instructions every owner dreams of. They have taught us with patience and kindness and we have definitely seen the results in our big bear. He loved spending the day with them and their other furry clients. We cannot thank them enough and are excited to enter their advanced training course in a few months once we get in some more practice of these basic commands at home. Zach will even be stopping by to help us more with counter serving! Thank you so much Koda K-9 Services!
Jennifer is the best. She has transformed my goofy puppy into a pristine canine w/ only a few training sessions. Thanks a million!
I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.
