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 was very helpful. He specifically helped us with our puppy's barking, leash manners and hyperactive behavior. We've had puppy training with our dog at Petsmart but hired Peter to help with these small problem areas and he helped us a lot in just 1 hour. I'd definitely hire him again if need be.
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!
Ok, I am telling you guys that Sandy Nelson is the Mary Poppins of dog training. I can not believe how easy she made it to learn how to get Ruby, my Saint Bernard, to actually listen (Ruby will now sit for treats). Today was the first lesson for my new girl "Babs". Babs is a Bassett Hound and like all hounds she is pretty dopey. Her first lesson went fantastic. With Sandy's help I am going to have two well behaved pooches. I can NOT say enough good things about The Pawsitive Experience. I am so grateful to have found Sandy on here.
Very effective, relaxed and helpful. It was an enjoyable training experience for me and my dog. Lots of good tips yo continue to build in the foundational training.
I was dogsitting my parent's 12 year old Yorkie, who demonstrated classic signs of fear aggression and was very territorial in the home. When we took him for walks he would bark and snap at other dogs on the path. On his first visit Mike brought treats and notepads for us to take notes, and he stopped our little yorkie's barking in its tracks and demonstrated immense patience. Our dog even bit him on their first meeting, but Mike didn't miss a beat! With his therapy dog Finn we worked through our dog's aggression. Finn was never out of control and was as patient as Mike with our dog. The dog that we currently have compared to the dog that we initially brought to Mike are as different as night and day! We only had four sessions with Mike, but he is able to socialize off-leash with other dogs now (he doesn't play with them, but he's able to just be around them, which is so much better than before). And when we walk him he's now able to greet other dogs without trying to bite them, so we no longer get scared every time we see another dog walking on the street. Lastly, our Yorkie used to drag his feet while walking, trying to sniff every little thing. After our first few meetings with Mike he showed us how to get our dog to walk at a better pace, and to follow us better. Walks that used to take us an hour now take us about 20 minutes! I highly recommend his training! Not only did he drive out early every Saturday, but he also never complained about Davis Square's parking situation.
I looked into many dog walking services in this area and I could not be happier with Garden City! I was concerned as this is something new for me and my dog. The owner is very dependable and professional. I can always get in touch with him and he happily works with my changing work schedule. He met with me and my 10 year old cockapoo before our first visit to learn about my dogs history and needs which was very important to me. I can only say good things about this service. This has really made my work schedule possible in the past few months. I never have to worry about my dog as I know she is in fantastic hands. This is by far the best dog walking service in this area!
I fully recommend K's Pet Care Services/Krytal Green. She is very capable, competent, punctual, easy to work with. She cares for the animals, and thinks out situations with forethought. 5-star service!
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 !!!!
Excellent is an understatement. This is more than just obedience training. It is insight to the dog/human relationship, from the dogs point of view. I didn't think I could change the behavior of my 4 1/2 year old dog, but I was mistaken. I just needed to stop doing all the wrong things. Don't go elsewhere just to realize you should have made Progressive Canine Dog Training and Behavioral Services your first stop!
Noelle was great! We came to her for aggression and destructive behavior, and she surpassed everything we expected. We got Riley back a whole new dog!! She came to our house during training and coached us through her training process. We could not be happier with her and the care and training of our dog. I'd give her 6 stars if I could!
Jocelyn was great with my pups. I have one dog that is on medication and special diet, she handled that with no problems. She would come over and take care of them through out the day and texted me updates and cute photos. It was very reassuring to know they we happy and enjoying snuggles with her.
Competent, caring professionals who provide top quality dog training services. They take the time to understand the needs of both the owners and the dogs. Great experience!
Vera has been incredibly helpful for my dog, Nala, and me. She tailors her sessions to the people and dogs in her class, so everyone is getting their issues and needs met. She's big on 'meeting you where you are at" and helping you understand your dog so you are able to meet them where they are at. When she gives you feedback and suggestions, she is sensitive in her approach and you end up feeling more confident in your ability to train and interact with your dog, rather than feeling like you're a complete failure. You definitely have to put in your fair share of work outside of classes, and she checks in with you to see how you're progressing, which helps hold you accountable. Since beginning our work with Vera, I have noticed that Nala is calmer and looks to me more often for guidance. She responds more quickly when I correct her as well. Nala and I have more work to do but Vera has helped us get the ball rolling in the right direction. I highly recommend Vera for dog owners who want to have a more cooperative dog!
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.
No dog is a bad dog. They might have just learned bad things. We can fix that. I do training and care, and I am certified in animal CPR. I have experience handling 30 plus dogs off-leash at the same time.
Hello there! My name is Alyssa and I am a professional dog trainer. I currently work at a dog training facility. At this facility I train and rehabilitate dogs. I have trained dogs with all different temperaments and behavior issues (fear aggression, dog aggression, agression towards humans, separation anxiety). That being said, no dog is too much for me! Other than my work life, I love to hangout with my pup and go for hikes. I am currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at my college and hope that one day I can work for a federal agency or with the police K-9 unit. With my services, I will be able to do obedience training for an hour a day with your pup as I am caring for him/her. Your dog will also experience some awesome hiking trips! If you would like to know more about me or my services, just ask! I have plenty of references from clients that I would be happy to provide!
Dog and people training that's focused on helping families have a balanced dog. This type of instruction works well for the majority of owners who want a family dog, not a ribbon in obedience. Manners, some "environmental obedience", and very few bad habits are what most of us want from our four-legged friends.
I am highly trained, specifically in animal behavior and psychology. I have deep love for animals. I've worked as a volunteer at the animal shelter where among other responsibilities was taking dogs for day long hikes on the mountain trails.
I have multiple HIGH IN TRIAL awards in obedience and rally and multiple BEST IN SHOW & BEST IN SPECIALTY SHOW awards. I have bred and1or owned more than 70 champions.
I want to bring safety, peace and resolution to your home with positive reinforcement training. I train all types of dogs.
