Pippin was territorially aggressive, and I was having a hard time tackling his chow chow/german shepherd breeding with our other two dogs in the house. Denise was able to help us understand the problem Pippin was having as well as give us the tools to conquer those problems. Pippin has improved dramatically, and continues to improve as we continue to utilize the skills and techniques Denise taught us,.
We had Brian come to the house to help with aggression towards visitors. After watching our dog for a bit, he was able to give us a simple technique to use. It's been two weeks now and she is much better. She almost corrects herself when she acts up. I also had Brian meet me at a park to deal with aggression towards other dogs. Again simple techniques that really made a difference. Very important note: It only took Brian a very short amount of time to handle my German Shepherd. She warmed up to him almost immediately. Trust with a trainer is very important.
Accommodated a last minute new client. Arrived on time. She was able to get our 5 month old German shepherd mix to start listening to commands right away and made sure we understood everything before she left. She even told us to call her if we had any questions. Will definitely be calling her for another session and will recommend to others!
Vicky provided a professional, fun and effective training to my German Shepherd who was a real challenge to take out for walks. She was always on time, always cheerful and her training yielded results right away. Two thumbs up for a job well done Vicky!
I hired Hillel to help me train my 5 year old German shepherd to walk on a leash. She would pull, lunge and bark excessively at other dogs and people as we passed them. In just one visit we had her walking quietly and by my side. I was amazed. He did a great job at training her and showing me how to handle her. I would definitely recommend Hillel.
Mark walks our three dogs 3 to 5 weekdays each week for the past few years. He's reliable and very flexible. We often have to shift the schedule around and he just rolls with it. Our dogs love Mark and Mark loves our dogs. That's not hyperbole, it's the truth and one of them is a German Shepherd. Anyone who knows about German Shepherds knows that they don't give it away. They make you earn it. But she warmed up to Mark almost right away. We also have a Golden Retriever and a Cattle Dog mix and they all just think Mark is the cat's pajamas. My wife and I hold Mark in as high esteem as our dogs. I would recommend his services to anyone.
My husband and I would definitely recommend Andrew at Citizen K9 for boarding services. I had never left my doberman/shepherd puppy and left her for the first time for a few days with Citizen K9 over the summer. Great experience! They have a large fenced in yard for the dogs to play. They even sent pictures of her playing with the other dogs to me via text to let me know how she was doing. We have already made our next boarding appointment for a week in November! Thanks Andrew!
I just wrapped up the basic obedience course with my german shepherd mix, and she is a different dog! Chai was aggressive, impulsive, reactive, and terrified of kids. In our evaluation, she was barking and snarling at a stuffed dog in their office. By the end of of the training, she was happily following instructions in a group class of over 10 dogs. The biggest thing we're walking away with is the tools to succeed. I can't recommend Haywood and his staff highly enough, they're worth every penny.
Scott and Jen are fantastic trainers. The work they did with our 11mo. german shepherd during the 2week board and train program was amazing. Our dog did not come when called and was very reactive around other dogs. Lila is now a great companion who listens well and has more confidence. She is not reactive to dogs anymore which has transformed our walks and trips to the park. Their program and training really work - they are highly recommended!!
Ms Maxine and Her Husband are exemplary trainers. They are very flexible, and very effective. Their instructions are clear. I saw a great turnaround in my dog's behavior immediately after the training session, and continued to improve from then on. This is a great program.
My 9 month old German shepherd dog Cole has had no training and thinks he is the alpha.after 1training session with his new prong collar he was being a little stubborn but quickly realized and learned how to walk with me and not just wherever he wants!!! THANK YOU SITTING PRETTY
Well let us start by saying that our Shiba Inu WAS quite the handful before we sent him to Dustin. We had no luck with training our Shiba Inu off leash and he only knew the "sit" and "paw" command. But, after picking him up after two weeks our Shiba Inu was a brand new dog he did AMAZING when we had a barbecue last weekend, so many distractions around, and he did amazing off-leash. I am glad I sent him to Dustin. Thanks man! We are going to send our German Shepherd next! (although she's not as bad).
Damelle has a wonderful and commanding gift with animals; I experienced this first-hand with my rascally, senior, male beagle. Fred (who is now in heaven) loved Damelle. When cataract surgery required administration of seven different vials of eye drops, Damelle came twice the day before surgery. You would have thought Fred was being given tasty treats by Damelle -- They both sat on the floor and my wiley beagle was a good boy to wait through all of the drops! I highly recommend Damelle for training and dog care of any kind.
Great trainer. My shepherd Loki loved her.
If you are looking for the trainer who can make the impossible possible, Jack is your trainer. My dog Zeus (German Pinscher) was a vicious dog with multiple behavioral problems. We tried different trainers, but we thought things were hopeless. After losing all hope, we were at the point of returning Zeus back to his breeder, but we decided to give one last try and hired Jack. Thanks to his methodology and vast experience, we started to see changes almost immediately, after the very first class. His personal commitment and dedication to classes is also outstanding. He loves dogs (he has his own pack of 8), he loves teaching and he is just a very, very good person. Therefore, if you are looking not for just a dog trainer, but for a good one with a very positive personality and with broad experience, Jack is for you.
I could not be happier with the training and the staff at Stateline Canine! I can tell that the trainers really love the dogs and their job. I had tried other trainers in the past do a couple of private sessions but there was no lasting result. Their training gets REAL results and they are even better than I expected. I highly recommend them for training!
I was provided with an amazingly trained PTSD service dog. My PTSD took a turn for the worst and Krys and her staff stepped up and helped pair me with a German Shepherd Dog named Chief. Since getting Chief my life has gradually improved. I still have my bad days but I wouldn't be here to experience them had American K9 and Krys not stepped up and helped me.
My dogs have had the BEST grooming of anywhere I have ever lived! They actually look the way a wire fox terrier should look, and this is no easy task. I have traveled 1.5hrs to take them to Belquest Kennels for grooming and their little vacations. I cannot say enough about the way my pets are treat!!! They are happy dogs and that makes me a happy owner! Belquest is the Best!!!!
We were at our wit's end when we found Enrico Cross. We owned a German Shepherd but the introduction of another German Shepherd to the family was not going smoothly - I think the two of them would have tried to kill each other had they gotten together. After about three weeks of this, we were at the point where we were thinking of returning the newest dog when we decided to consult with Enrico and sign up for one of his classes. We had to take the two dogs in separate vehicles. In the span of one class session, Enrico had the two dogs side by side. He then taught us commands that every dog owner should know and a technique to make them stick. He also worked with us to keep us from transmitting our own bad "body language" to the dogs. Our two sheps eventually bonded so tight you would have thought they were from the same litter. I would recommend Enrico without any reservation and do so whenever i meet someone who has gotten a new dog. Don't waste your time with pet store training.
I had my Gretchen in for training and what a huge turn around it was. She is a German Shepard/ Black lab mix and she is doing amazing when it comes to commands.
I have a German Shepherd that had long hair, Jessica & Chris do such a beautiful job with her, that I look forward to her next visit! They are the best around.
The owner of PuppyLovin, Julie, is one awesome dog trainer and a wonderful person. My wife and I have been taking our German Shepherd to her for training, boarding, and day care for about a year and a half now. She has really been a godsend when it comes to dog training. Without her training, assistance, and consultation, we would have had our hands full with our GSD. I highly recommend PuppyLovin for all three of the services stated above. Julie will cater her services to the needs of your dog and develope comprehensive plan for your pet.
She really knows how to train a dog. She is very polite and calm with them. I've seen a few of her trained dogs and they are extremely well trained.
Felipe is a fabulous trainer! Altho he is only working with Koda, my German Shepherd, both my dogs just love him and are so excited to see him at the door. He has trained Koda to walk at my pace instead of pulling and chewing on the leash--very important for an 80-pound dog! I would recommend Felipe without reservation to anyone who needs help with dog-training or walking/exercising. He is the best!!
That the Dude, over 100 pounds of German Shephard Dog, knows how to behave is attributable to Michelle Jackson's training. She taught me how to work with him, while giving him an opportunity for socialization with other dogs. He responds well to her, even after a long absence, and does all of his behaviors --sit, stay, come, down, etc. -- better after a session. I only wish we had started with her when he was a little puppy.
