Earl was a huge life saver for my husband and I! We have a 10 month old Golden retriever named Bear who was completely running the show! Earl showed us practical, effective ways to establish leadership in our home. He was extremely encouraging and never made of feel bad for anything we could've been doing differently with Bear. We were very impressed with his knowledge and experience with dog training. He had our dog relaxing on the floor for an extended period of time which was a first for Bear! I would highly recommend Earl for any kind of dog behavioral issues. We could tell he truly cared about us and Bear and wanted to see us be successful in our dog ownership!
Melissa is AWESOME! We brought home a brand new puppy, that spent 3 weeks with her first, and our new puppy knows how to sit, stay, not chew on things she shouldn't, and goes to the door when she needs to potty. She sent us updates with her progress, and posted many videos on her Facebook page for us to check out. Excellent communication with Melissa! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for puppy and/or dog training! Thank you soooo much Melissa! Chad and Jennifer Cross
These guys are great! They leave journal and write in it every day so I know how my pup did on walk/visit. Show up on time. Very responsive and okay with last minute changes. I also used their obedience training for my dog and we are improving every day!
I sent out the request to find a dog trainer and I received a quick response from the Turn Around Dogs. I'll have a follow up review after they come to my place and do the consultation.
Thanks Lea. This was a great experience for me. Great tips and techniques on how to train my dog as well as how to understand my dogs breed specific behavior. Lea is more than a dog trainer, she's a dog expert. I wanted someone to teach me how to best teach my dog and that's what I got. Very reasonable price for that kind of experience. Thanks again, Lea.
Maris is an incredibly knowledgable and experienced trainer and breeder, whose work can only be characterized by her deep understanding of a canines own true nature and therefore lack of certain human qualities that we all as dog owners tend to believe our animals posses. She is forthright in her ability to discern between a behavioral problem that begets modification, and the unfortunate genetic problems typical dog owners find more difficult to understand. This ability has allowed her to bring hope back in the homes of families who have found themselves feeling distressed and helpless, particularly when the costs of typical behavioral modification and training may be a deal breaker. We adopted a shelter dog who was severely abused, and suffered from extreme anxiety and fear, specifically of the male gender. It was recommended by our vet that we consider euthanasia, as the safety of my children and anyone who came into the home was of primary importance. As a dog lover who has only raised wonderful family dogs from young puppies, I felt helpless when I realized that this poor damaged young pup we had made a part of our family, was indeed troubled and that his escalating behavior was putting serious strain on not only our family, but the other two great dogs we already raised. Giving up was never an option, the pup had clearly chose my young son at adoption, so I immediately began searching for help with behavior modification both online and through the vet. After speaking with several trainers and one dog psychologist over the phone, it became clear that our family would never be able to afford the help our dog so desperately needed. I finally searched specifically for "dog behavior modification Kansas" online, and found Maris's website. She had a wealth of information and educational materials that not only gave me hope, but proved to me that as a trainer, she truly knew what she was doing. When we spoke in the phone, I explained to her what a serious situation we were in with Sam, and that the vet suggested euthanasia. She immediately calmed my fears and offered to come over and evaluate Sam. Maris never promised that he would be a good candidate, nor that only a session or two would would magically fix the problem, but she did promise to give us her honest opinion at a price my family could afford. After our evaluation, it was clear she could work with Sam, and at the same time train us as a family in how to make things work by being his leaders. There was no time limit on our visits, she didn't charge by the hour, and was in no hurry to rush through a session in order to get to another clients home. After three months of weekly visits, Sam had gone from a fearful broken dog, to a dog that clearly wanted to work to please us. I could not, and would not recommend any other trainer but Maris to anyone. Not only is Maris wonderful at what she does, but she offers her clients a type of affordable personalized service that no other trainer can. There is nothing Maris could ever possibly do better for families, she is simply amazing.
Definitely recommend Zana as a dog trainer. Really friendly and definitely knows what she is doing. We were shocked how well behaved our German Shepherd was after just 2 weeks with Zana!
We have had Clever Canine pet sit for us several times and I would totally recommend her. She has watched our 2 dogs and our 5 horses. She does a great job. Goes above and beyond what is needed. She spends time with all of our pets; playing fetch and snuggling the dogs and exercising, grooming and making sure all our horses diet needs are met. She comes to our place three times daily. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon to feed and then again in the evening to let the dogs out before bed. She has total access to our home. We trust her with EVERYTHING!!! She would be a great sitter for your pets!!!
Jeff at Show Me K9 Dog Training has helped my dog go from pulling on walks, lunging and barking at dogs, etc. to walking without pulling, looking up and listening for direction, and now knows come, sit, off, wait, heel, and place after only two lessons. Jeff is always willing to answer questions in between sessions at any time of day, gives great directions for me during the week, and very helpful feedback on our progress during lessons. Feels good to throw away the harness and relax on walks with my Buddha! I HIGHLY recommend Show Me K9 Dog Training!
Angela has a very high level of knowledge in both dog behavior and dog training. She was always on time for each appointment and was willing to stay a little late to make sure I understood each facet of the training. You can tell she loves dogs and loves helping people train their dog. She would always return my call when I had questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about training their dog.
Regan did such a great job with my mini Australian Shepard, Rocco. She had a vast knowledge and was able to use a wide range of techniques in teaching my puppy. Regan was also able to understand Rocco and know when to keep pushing and when to take it easy. Not only was Rocco able to learn in this class I also was able to learn so much about training and my dog. I look forward to taking more lessons from Regan in the future and would recommend her to anyone!
Brianne is delightful. It was a pleasure meeting her and we look forward to a wonderful experience choosing Brianne to train our new Gordon Setter puppy. She is a very confident, knowledgeable, experienced dog trainer. It is rare that I would give such a glowing review based on one meeting!
Tracy was wonderful helping with ideas for our rescue pup with his fear of my husband. We are looking forward to using her service again. Thanks Tracy!
Regan is amazing to work with. She has a very calming effect on animals, her energy is incredible. Every training session was well structured yet natural and positive. I always walked away from each session feeling more connected with my dog. Regan has given me the means to better understand my dog. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. We were so blessed to find such a wonderful and caring trainer, I would recommend her to anyone!
Tammie is an excellent dog trainer. She trained my service dog in basic and advanced commands.
