The people here are very kind and thoughtful. Our puppy thoroughly enjoyed his time there and was able to get down his basic manners. In addition to always keeping us up to date on how our little pup was doing, they were very easy to communicate with and schedule pick-up and drop off times while always being prepared to answer out questions. Full support Valorzen and would recommend them to anyone who needs "doggy daycare" in the future.

Jessica did a home visit for our animals in Howell because my dog is to anxious to be boarded. She was very flexible with our hectic schedule and last minute requests. When she dropped by to pick up her payment my dog was excited to see her, so that's all the feedback I needed from him! Would hire her again in the future.

About

I adopted a dog from a rescue and I knew that she would need obedience training. I started looking at classes and came upon Judi's website. I was looking for a positive training method for my dog and her site seemed to promise that. She was prompt to answer all of my questions. Judi is wonderful at her job of helping you learn how to train your dog. She is positive and very friendly. I enjoyed how well she explained things and answered questions thoroughly. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and their body language (which I found interesting!) I learned a lot in our basic obedience class and I am looking forward to taking more classes with my dog. The other aspect of her classes that I really enjoyed is that she offers daytime classes. I wanted to take a class while my children were in school so as not to schedule anything more during the busy school week. The classes are small and personable also. I would recommend Trust and Obey Pawsitive dog training if you are looking for a positive and pleasant experience for you and your dog.

I used the immersion training as I had two female dogs, 7 and 3, that had their first fight a year ago, followed by one a few months later, then about six months after that two fights, one severe enough to have two bloody dogs. I knew I needed some serious help, and after talking with their trainers, we chose this option. The change when they got home was very noticeable. It wasn't the idea of correcting the dogs when aggression was shown, but redirecting their heads to acceptable behavior. The added benefit of the dogs heeling nicely, and the other commands taught is good. ,

About

Jean is knowledgable and patient, and she calls it like she sees it-straight up. You know where you stand, and what your dog needs from you in order to be successful. Jean has a natural understanding of dog behavior, and has a positive energy that makes the process easier & more enjoyable for both you and your dog. My dog went from being afraid of the water (and he is fearful anyway) to jumping right in and swimming excitedly for 45 minutes-all thanks to the environment Sit Stay Swim provides, and to Jean and her "good vibes". I have a fearful dog, and I have had some unfortunate interactions with people claiming to be "dog behavior professionals" before meeting Jean. Jean is the real deal; you will be doing both you and your dog a favor by trusting your loved one to Jean Carew.

I was very happy with Tony's training techniquies. I trust him with my pups and in my home. I loved the calm and confident energy that he has when working with dogs that aren't even his own. I would highly recommend him for training your dog for any need at all. I have a very large Great Pyreneese with some food agression and it has beeen amazing to see what just understanding the dog mantality will do for improving the living situation with you and your family dog.

Joey has done an excellent job teaching me how to work with my dog. He quickly sized up with behavioral issue with Buddy and worked with me to understand what my dog needs. I would recommend Joey Luke's Dog Training without hesitation.

About

We help high-energy dogs become ideal companions and reduce owners' stress. Does your dog pull on the leash, jump on you and your visitors, not come back when called, counter surf, pick up items it shouldn't and not drop them on cue, show fearful/aggressive tendencies toward other dogs or people, and generally misbehave? We can help you solve those problems quickly, humanely, and effectively. As a former police K9 officer and social worker, I have the experience to not only train dogs effectively, but also help families come together to be on the same page when training their dogs. Instead of being frustrated with your dog, we will help you enjoy the new relationship you can have with your dog, so you can take your dog to more places and enjoy it's company in your home. We have varied training programs available: board and train, day school, private on-site training sessions, in-home training sessions, group classes, VIP day care, and home away from home (boarding). We can train your dog for you or train you to train your dog. We have great follow up support. Once you train with us, you're treated like family. You can trust our integrity, professionalism, and expertise.

About

Does your dog have issues? I work one on one with dog owners to correct behavior problems. I travel to the home to consult with the owner(s) and observe the problems that need addressing. I educate owners in the areas of dog psychology, body language and methods of correction. At the end of the first visit, usually lasting anywhere from one and a half to two hours, I set up a plan for the owners to follow for the next week or two. I return at the end of that time to follow up and check progress. If further sessions are necessary, I will advise the owner of that at that time. I specialize in aggression cases. I have been fortunate to have been able to save several dogs from having to go to shelters or be put to sleep. I absolutely love what I do, and it shows in my work. I will go the extra mile for my clients. The method I use is cheaper, in most cases, and more in depth and effective than traditional obedience training. My clients love the fact that they can use the knowledge I give them with any dog they may own in the future and never have to pay for training again. Clients love that, after trying everything else with little or no success, I can step in and correct the problem in 1-3 visits. I will travel anywhere within 2 hours of Cleveland, Ohio.

Katelin was great! Very sweet and patient. My dog loved her and responded very well to her. We are just starting the training. She recommended I take a class for my dog's concerns (aggression to other dogs). She felt it would be a faster and less expensive option. She gave me a lot of advice and helped me with the harness which I was using incorrectly. Answered all my questions including referrals which will save me money as well and be beneficial for my dog.

I will walk your dog or dogs whenever you need a reliable dog walker. I can also train your dog in many commands and tricks, including not to pull on the leash, sit, lay down, stand, rollover, shake, wave, high five, and more, as well as not barking at the cat, drop it, leave it, fetch, not to be barky and bitey. I can feed and water your dog while you are away. I play with your dog. I can also clean your yard of your dog's poop. I can even brush your dog, and if you want, give your dog a bath.

We are a group of dog behaviorists with over 20 years of combined experience, specializing in in-home training programs for dogs of all breeds, temperaments and backgrounds. Our knowledge and experience gives us the ability to read and understand each dog accurately and adjust accordingly; this is what separates the professional behaviorist from the novice trainer. We pride ourselves on our ability to solve any behavior problem, and teach effective obedience through positive reinforcement training methods, without the use of shock collars, clickers or treats. Our training philosophy demands that owners be given the knowledge to build and maintain leadership, as well as the theories and methods for understanding and correcting current behavior problems, and preventing future ones. We show families how to utilize their dog's natural instincts towards redirecting unwanted behaviors. With our Dog Training for Life program, we begin with a free in-home evaluation to assess your dog in their natural environment, allowing us to pinpoint the source of any behavior problems. Most behavior problems occur in the home, and obedience needs to be effective there in everyday life, so training you and your dog in your own environment first is essential for success. Once you have success at home, the next step is to teach your dog how to behave outside your home, and work on behavioral problems specific to public settings at our Socializing Groups.

I rescued my dog, Pippin, about a month ago. She started off very timid but warmed up to me quickly. We have two dogs including her and she's started to become very protective of me, towards our other dog and guests entering the home. She's a great dog but I want to nip this barking and growling in the bud before she gets too aggressive. I don't want to worry about bringing friends into our home and her growling at them.
