I had A GREAT experience with Jean! I was having trouble introducing my new rescue dog to my other dog and my kids, she came to my house and showed me the proper way of introducing a new dog and it helped us out tremendously! I will be signing my dog up for basic obedience training class this month! :) I always recommend her to people who need help with training.
We really like Marianne. She is very well educated with dog training. She listened to us carefully regarding our concerns, and set out a very doable program for us to follow. She is now our official doggie coach, and is returning this week to assess our progress, and build on the program. We are very satisfied.
Got a new puppy? Are you having problems with a rescue dog? Are you just having training problems with your dog and need some guidance and training advice? I can help by coming directly to your home to evaluate your puppy or dog and show you how to train and mold your canine friend into a cherished family member forever. House calls range from $65 to $85, and frequently, only one or two visits are needed.
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.
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.

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 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.
This is a unique dog training method that I created over 20 years ago. I have been training dogs for 36 years. Although I do have classes and private lessons available to local customers, my specialty is taking dogs into my facility for three weeks and sending home the perfect dog. In most instances, I return the dog to the owner's home, so that the training can be customized to a family and home environment. I have trained dogs, from Arizona, Ohio and Indiana to Colorado, Illinois (mostly Chicago), and Michigan. I am able to provide numerous references. I have been as far as Istanbul, Turkey, to teach this training method to other dog trainers.
We specialize in difficult-to-handle cases. We offer group classes, private lessons and in-Board training. We offer educational seminars and workshops. We have a pet boutique for that unique gift. Rescued dogs are available for adoption with full obedience.

Hello to all! I am an experienced dog trainer and have been with animals all my life. I use the reward method that the famous trainer, Rudd Weatherwax, used to train Lassie dogs. I service the Oakland and Wayne County areas I come to you, so the dog or dogs will be more comfortable in their own surroundings. Sometimes, we can meet at a park for doggie outings. My fee is $40.00 for the first two-hour lesson. Lessons after that will be $30.00 each.
I have raised and fostered dogs my whole life. It is horrifying to see the abuse people will put animals through. Yet most of them still come back to loving people after being tortured.
I offer the following services: * house training * crate training * basic commands * leash training * some behavior training If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
I dog sit, and I also train dogs. I've been training other people's dogs and my own dogs since I was a little kid. I have dog sat a few dogs, and their owners always come back when they need their dog to be pet sat. I can train dogs to heel, sit, down, stay, etc. on command. When I dog sit, it's either at my home or theirs. I provide walking, toys, treats, etc. I enjoy watching and training dogs, and I hope that I'm right to train or watch with you and your dogs.
