Mary's combination of love and knowledge about dogs and her extensive experience with dog training makes her the perfect person to trust in training your beloved pet. Her classes include very practical instruction that is easy to apply on day one. We took our first puppy, Snickers, to her Puppy Manners class and were so thankful for her wisdom and guidance as we learned to be good dog owners. To this day, we continue using what we learned with Snickers and he is a VERY well behaved pooch! My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Mary/Drama Dog Training for your dog.
We have been through 6 trainers for our aggressive dog, it seemed like we weren't getting anywhere and we were at wits end. Karen is number 7. Lucky number 7 it seems. We are amazed after one session. We worked with her for a little over two hours our first session and already understood why she is the one that really knows how to figure our dog out. We didn't believe we would ever be able to keep Ellie due to her extreme fear aggression, but now we have hope for her.
Jeannie is really great! I absolutely love her approach to dog training... because it ACTUALLY WORKS ... yay!!! I've taken my dogs to other trainers... and I just ended up wasting my money because it covered the symptoms... and we never go to the root of the problem. Jeannie actually teaches the why AND how... LOVE IT! I definitely recommend her!!!
Dawn is amazing! In such a short period of time she has helped my dog and I get over some pretty big hurdles. She has so much knowledge about anything from dog training to the dogs nutrition and is happy to share. Every time my dog and I have a training class we learn so much and she keeps us on our toes because at the end she will always ask us "What did you learn?!" My favorite thing about doing training with her is she's such an encourager! Sometimes I feel like I 'failed' but she always points out what my dog and I did well and helps us move along from there. We love her and are so thankful for all she does!
I sent my dog here to be trained for personal protection. I must say I was amazed with the work these guys put in! They made sure I got everything I wanted out of my dog. I would recommend WMK9 to anyone looking for someone that trains dogs out of love & passion. Not to get a paycheck.
Mike Sapp with Talon K9 Services and Consulting has been a lifesaver since day one of bringing my dog home. After my dog tried to eat my cat on her first night home, I called on Mike for assistance and within a very short time the two were interacting appropriately and I have not had a problem since. Furthermore, Mike worked with us on walking around the neighborhood; where before my dog would bark and lunge at other dogs, she is now greatly improved and can walk past dogs and act appropriately. Not only did Mike help my dog, he gave me the coaching and tools necessary to continue the success and make me a more confident dog owner. If any other problems arise I will not hesitate to call on Mike for help. I highly recommend Talon K9 Services and Consulting.
We are only two sessions into training with Tony, but our dog has already improved so much! We can see so much better behavior from her and are on our way to understanding how to maintain this good behavior. Tony is great at understanding our dogs behavior, good and bad, and identifying the steps we need to take to enforce the good. He is patient with both us and the dog, and helpful with any questions that we have had along the way. Not only does he come right to you but is with you in the real world, walking the dog and introducing her to other dogs. I am very happy I chose to go with Tony as my dog trainer and am excited to see where we can go from here!
We just had a newborn baby and it has been a struggle keeping our high energy, fur-baby happy. I looked into dog walking businesses and all were way out of our budget so I'm so glad I found Kelsey as she is excellent, reliable and super flexible and understanding. Best of all, my pup adores her. I highly recommend Kelsey if you are looking for a dog walker/trainer. :)
Having trained several dogs of different breeds, I understand the difference in temperaments, a well as other factors.
