My dog Addie behaved incredibly well for Cathy, I was extremely impressed! She gave her a good cut and Cathy coming to my home was a godsend! I well definitely be calling Cathy again
Jennifer was willing to meet our needs, and offered alternative options for training our dog to stay in the yard with her electric fence. It turns out we had a rechargeable collar that wasn't holding charge. We replaced the system and our dog is now staying in the yard again. I want to thank Jennifer for bearing with us through the process. Lynn
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
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.
I had a 23 week old puggle who had severe separation anxiety due to a breakup with my boyfriend we also had a year old pitbull they were together everyday since my puggle was 8 weeks old after I moved out and we got our own place she would not stop barking when I would leave her alone. I have to do something so I called good dog training and she guided me through stepson how to control her barking and crying and right now she only likes Criesfor like a minute I tell her to be quiet and give her a treat and we repeated it and repeated it and repeated it. and she finally stoppe I almost got evicted from my apartment if I couldn't get the Barking under control but thanks to good dog we still have a place to live and everything is great
We acquired a rescue lab and had no idea what this boy knew... We hired Balanced Pooches dog training and could not be more impressed with the service John provided. Our boy Tucker is a totally different dog today then he was the day we got him.... We have all learned so much, and We are all works in progress. John was truly interested in working with all of us so we were all on the same page as far as training and building a great relationship to make a balanced home. I don't think words could explain how much this man cares to make every relationship between you and your pet a wonderful one. Hiring John was the best decision we made, and we highly recommend him.
Lisa was so reassuring and professional over the phone.. She was so honest with me about my training with my dog, we were actually able to resolve most issues with a phone consultation. She could have pressured me into signing on to a training program but she has integrity and the experience to recognize that my concerns over my dog were minor enough where I "didn't need her", but she was still caring enough to make sure she coached me appropriately over the phone anyway. Thank you Lisa...
We rescued a shepherd/malamute mix puppy from a shelter out-of-state and hired Sandy to help us with our new addition to the family. Sandys experience, dedication, patience and love for dogs is remarkable! From the first few sessions, I was amazed how this little puppy was on his way to become a good listener and follow commands. She is always prepared with each weekly lesson and makes it fun instead of making it a chore. She provides handouts each time she visits so that the family can continue with the lessons. Our puppy is now five months old and loves Sandy when she comes over for training. When we visit our favorite pet store, we are always given compliments on how well our puppy behaves and we credit this to Sandy for training Diesel and the family! I would definitely recommend Sandy to anyone who would like assistance training their dog. 5/5. Heidi P
John has an objective eye and vast knowledge for training any and all dog types. He truly understands the relationship between a dog and their owner and during training he provides timely and constructive feedback. John helped both myself and my husband be more aware of our body language and how our mannerisms set the tone with how our dog reacts and empowered us to be the "alpha" dog so to speak in order to have a well balanced dog. Without hesitation we would recommend John as a qualified trainer. Beth and Scott D.
Susan has been handling and training our dogs for the breed ring since 1994. During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.) She has helped us evaluate litters as well. She has always been generous not only with her skills but her knowledge. We look forward to continuing to work with her.
Lesli is very reliable. She takes some time to interact with the cat while she's at my house letting the dog out. She always lets me know when she's been here and how the dog - and the cat - are doing.
Yvonne is AWESOME! a self proclaimed dog-person who won our cats over instantly. She clearly loves and values all animals! She took superior care of our 3 cats for a week (one of them needed meds) and took care of our house-related items as well. She stayed in contact and we felt secure that our fur babies were safe and happy the whole time. We couldn't have been more pleased.
I enjoyed working with Krystal. She is very friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, and very professional. She was thorough in our first meeting to get to know my dog and his needs. She was very helpful to me in giving me information on ways to train my dog.
I have been working for lucky dogs daycare for about a year and a half. My experience with lucky dogs has been a great one. We are still a growing business and are building up our facility to be the best it can be. We are a full service daycare facility, but we also do boarding, training, grooming and we have our new retail shop with all sorts of goodies for your pups. I love being able to bring my dog Buffy in for a groom. She's older so she doesn't care for daycare, but she loves coming to Lucky Dogs for a good pampering by Jane. All of our groomers are great at what they do and our experts in their field. They have been grooming for many many years. The best part about working for lucky dogs would have to be the dogs. We have a really good group of dogs that come pretty much everyday. At lucky dogs your dog isn't just another name on a list, every staff member has their own favorites lol. And throughout the day each dog gets some one on one attention with their favorite staff member and vice versa. We take the time to get to know each dog and their behaviors, and try to cater to each dogs individual needs. So we can ultimately have a safer group of dogs to play with each day. We also have a really good group of staff members, some of them have been here for a couple years and a few have been here a little less. We really don't have a high turn around rate for staff like with most daycares. So our staff and especially the dogs are like family here.
It was excellent I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and of course my dogs did!!!!!
We have just started training our dog with Steve and already see great progress.
My new dog (Rina) that I adopted a month ago from a shelter is very nervous and afraid of any type of noise and barks at people walking by the house, and at us when we try to leave the house. I have not even left her home alone yet. I realized how bad this was within the first few days and realized that I was going to have to find help for her (and me). I found Lee's name and read about her credentials and her experience working with dogs with the same problems as Rina and contacted her right away. I also saw that Lee believes in only positive reinforcement training ONLY which is very important to me. Lee responded quickly and began to send me information I could start reading re. Rina's behavior in advance of the Consultation we had planned. When Lee arrived for the consult, Rina did not make it easy for her at all to even step into the house - - barking at the "stranger" and carrying on for awhile! She was VERY upset! Eventually, with Lee's skills and understanding of the situation, she slowly made her way into the house, and after a few minutes, was sitting at our dining room table, and Rina was looking for more treats - - and then even laying at her feet! This was not an easy task, believe me. Lee told me that she specialized in these types of nervous, phobic dogs and she sure proved it to me yesterday! She took her time with Rina and really knew how to handle the situation. I was very impressed with that, and I learned a lot during the consult regarding Rina's distress and how we can help her. I plan to continue into a training program soon with Lee when she feels Rina is ready.
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.
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!
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.
