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!
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.
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.
Rebecca is a very knowledgable and patient dog trainer. We worked with her to train our puppy. He was quite receptive to her training approach and is a wonderful young dog now. She provides training tips and information to us very clearly, which greatly helped us along the way. Not only was Rebecca wonderful with our puppy, she was also very patient and flexible with US, the dog owners. The fact that Rebecca is able to work with both the pet AND the owners to work out a training regime that worked for US really helped with the training process. Although we haven't seen Rebecca in a little while, she continues to check in to see how we're doing. I really don't know what we would have done without her! :) We would (and do) highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for help with their pets!
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.
My husband and I had a great experience with John and his partner! We were unsure what our dog needed in terms of training so they came to do an evaluation at our home. They exceeded what we were expecting in terms of advice for first time meeting and getting to know us and our dog. Also our dog took to John really well which makes me confident if we ever decide to do more training he is in great hands. Would highly recommend John and actk9!
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!!!
We were in search of a new dog walker to help us with our 2 year old golden. We never expected to meet such a reliable and professional person as Jess. She brings a lot to the table with her many years of experience working with animals. Our dog absolutely loves her (he rolled onto his back within minutes of meeting her which is not typical of him at all!). I would highly recommend Jess to anyone looking for someone passionate about helping owners and their animals.
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
Ashley is a fantastic dog and people trainer! I have learned so much volunteering with Ashley at a local animal shelter. The dogs we work with at the shelter are a wide range of age, breed, and temperament. Ashley does a great job with all of the dogs at their individual level, whether it be with a solid start at the basics or working on problem behaviors such as impulse control, fearfulness, or pulling on the leash. While helping the dogs, she also educates other volunteers about various dog behaviors and what the dogs are communicating. She is very approachable and easy to talk with. Every session is as much about teaching the people as it is about teaching the dogs.
If you are looking for a dog trainer that is force-free, you need to call Zippity Do Dog today. Lee specializes in reactive and fearful dogs and works with families to create strategies for the individual dog. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides a wealth of information and support for her clients. Lee has done pet sitting with my animals for nearly 27 years! Our animals have always loved her. She has cared for our dogs, bird, rabbit, and even the fish! She is trustworthy, knowledgeable & has years of experience. We can guarantee your dogs will love her and we always say she can 'talk to the animals'. :)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Cindy is a wonderful and knowledgeable trainer who spent time training us and our dog! She was calm but firm with her training methods, and was very familiar with our mixed breed. I would highly recommend her and Pawfection Pet Training to anyone that is looking for training or help with their dog!
