I contacted Jennifer because my cockapoo Teddy was having a hard time adjusting to our new home and was very unwelcoming when any guests would come visit. I was starting to have major anxiety at just the thought of guests coming to the door and knew something needed to be done. Jennifer came to my home and with a few tricks and the purchase of a gentle leader, Teddy is doing so much better with visitors! He has also started to learn simple commands such as "come" and "stay" and seems to be adjusting so much better to our new home. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who needs some help training their dog!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Katherine and Susan are the perfect team!!!! They were welcoming and caring and felt more like family when we dropped off our Boston Terrier (Mickey) We were nervous and hesitant because we had never done anything like this with previous pets. However we knew he needed some training to get him to be a more well rounded family member. They explained thoroughly what the train would consist of and gave us frequent updates. Mickey was also taking some medication for some staples he had put in a few days prior and with Susan’s many years of veterinary technician training she was able to monitor and administer his medicine to ensure he was receiving the correct dosages each day. They didn’t mind us calling to check in just when we missed him and when WE needed reassurance that we were doing what was best for Mickey. They walked us through his diet, training tools and that it’s 90% play and 10% training. Their home is filled with love for their animals and when we picked him up a week later he was so excited to show us what he had learned but he also treated Susan and Katherine as if they were his new best friends and that filled us with such joy and a sigh of relief. We can’t be more thankful and grateful for their teaching and their love for what they do. We have even scheduled some one on one private sessions and an additional week of training in the future. A++++ and 2 Paws UP
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!
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.
We have just started training our dog with Steve and already see great progress.
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.
Not only has Jocelyn helped with training my new puppy Zac (which she is amazing at), she also came to my home two to three times a day while my family and I were away on February vacation. It was such an amazing relief to know my puppy was well taken care of, had consistent and amazing companionship throughout the day, and was taken on walks and provided meals. Jocelyn provided me with the much-needed sense of peace while I was away, she sent me pictures and videos during each visit, and was available to add drop-ins even at last minute notice. I would highly recommend all of her services to anyone who has a four-legged family member!!!!!
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.
Zephyr has mastered the art of dog training. Within minutes of our first session our previously untrained, recently adopted dog was sitting and heeling. We were trying to reduce his low level anxiety by working with him on basic obedience skills. Zephyr was very patient with me as I learned how to give the commands and how to use the leash. He was also very kind and loving to my dog, which I know is very important to most dog owners. My dog has shown less anxiety and greatly increased obedience skills in just three sessions with Zephyr. We are already recommending his services to family and friends with dogs!

My extreme love for all dogs makes me your best choice for your dogs needs. I believe that a happy dog is a good dog. All walking will be done on side streets where less traffic keeps dogs less stressed. Any training will be done within a fenced yard.
