Ms. Parnell works dogs through positive operant training and motivates the owner to want to follow through. She has vast knowledge working with troubled dogs with a positive outcome. I recommend her highly. You will be more than satisfied with her services.
My 9 month old Husky has been a crazy, ball of energy since I got him and he had absolutely no listening skills. Koda has been trained by Kelly since he was 4 months old and he has improved drastically! He used to be so crazy that I even thought I may have to get rid of him because he was too much for my grandpa to handle and now I couldn't picture my life without him! He is much easier to handle and I have Kelly to thank for that! Now I am going to keep enstilling the lessons Kelly taught me for Koda and prepare him for his next step which is when he turns 1 he will do his last training class and take the service dog exam. I wouldn't of ever thought Koda would come this far.
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.
I have not completed the dog training yet
Very nice, knowledgable, answered all of our questions and then some. Showed us proper techniques in handling and training out dog. Nothing negative to say.
Meghan--Thank you so much for all of the pet sitting and training. Georgie is a new dog, and we are better pet parents! You are fantastic, and we are so grateful. We look forward to having you back soon.
Debbie has all of the above traits. Our dog took to all her cues immediately. She is a pleasure to learn from and work with and checks in to make sure training is going well.
We first brought our female sable GSD athena for training and had a great learning experience with lenny...and a few years later brought our all black female athenas daughter fria for some basic obeience training and some leadership skills with mary ellen...both lenny and mary ellen make the whole experience fun and easy to understand. Especially when it comes to the dog phsychology and learning to be a pack leader, they both have many many years working with GSD's and truely understand the breed and the fact that these are truley a working breed..the teachings are very simple and interesting to where you wanna learn and keep going, mary ellen also does a wonderful job with grooming. I highly recomend canine cadre for all your canine needs...all types of training, behavior modification, basic and advance obedience, puppy classes, grooming ... They do it all.
Melinda is a perfect example of a great teacher. She is kind and supportive with positive reinforcement training methods. She is incredibly patient with dogs and their not so coordinated parents. If you want a trainer with compassion, knowledge and patience, with a keen sense of what you and your dog need, choose Melinda.
I have had nothing but positive interactions with Sharon and helpful suggestions and guidance. She has been very willing to meet me where I'm at and work with me/around my disabilities that can vary at times in terms of my activity level but have also had some unexpected turns lately. She is extremely professional, honest, and kind and great with my dog! He absolutely loves her. I can't say enough positive things about her. She is a true find and I feel blessed to have found her and have her involved in my "service dog in training" journey.
Donna has great working with us (mom at 93, husband at 80 and me at 60) training our 10 month large black lab mix Sampson. She shows us how to do an exercise and then has us do it. Sampson is learning very quickly and his obedience improveso weekly. Love that she comes to house and works with us with environment distractions.
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.
Gina has helped me both with an eight week basic training class for my reactive do. She has also helped me with issues I have had with my dog at home. She is always available for my questions and offers knowledgeable advice. Gina gives positive feedback and encouragement. My dog is a work in progress so I know I will continue to contact her in the future for help and suggestions.
She taught me everything I need to know about dog training. An outstanding instructor who can do anything from the simple basics to hard core problems with fido. Straightforward and a highly knowledgeable individual who will and can help with anything dog related. She puts the dog and their issues first and wants to help as much as she can sacrificing time and anything she can to try to help.
Best dog behavior trainer you will fine, makes your puppy/and owners feel a new understanding of needs and expectations. If you have tried "trainers" please give Em4Dogs a try, you will be amazed with the results.
Great training, small class a lot of interaction. Facility nice. Would use again and recommend to others. Always available for questions.
I have worked for 25 years in the valley helping people to train their dogs to be better family members. I also work in Manchester at Tails-U-Win! I taught there for 22 years. I have taught 14 classes a week of agility at Tails and am an AKC Agility Judge since 1997.
I'm specializing in behavior modification. I feel it is very important that we, as dog owners, learn to speak our dog's language. Having a strong outlook into animal behavior, I take the time to work one-on-one with you and your dog in your home, working to eliminate behavior problems, from house breaking and door dashing to animal- or human-based aggression.
I train dogs to hunt, to walk and to behave. I have a schnauzer-poodle cross, and shes perfectly trained. I would love to train your dogs.
I have a wonderful fenced-in area and a quiet, peaceful setting to care for your dog. I have experience training border collies, one of the most intelligent, but high-strung breeds. I can give your pet much care and gentle persuasion for good behavior.
We offer a complete family dog program as well as agility, competition obedience, rally, nosework, barn hunt, flyball and therapy dog classes. We also offer private training and behavior consults.
