My husband and I had recently brought home our very first dog. We were so excited but soon became frustrated with our dogs extreme anxiety and lack of socialization. This wasn’t how we pictured us getting a dog going. To be honest, even contemplated if we were a good fit for him. After only one session with James we came back home amazed. It was almost like we had a different dog! Can’t wait to see what the rest of training has in store for us. Thank you so much, James!Apr 14, 2020Verified
Uphold original quote DO NOT MISQUOTE Fees Less statistics and bragging Be consistant with answers Don't say you can help with problem areas when you can't After you collect your money Know the dogs name on 2nd visit Don't assume your dogs are welcome in clients homes Leave your wad of chew and spit can at home or in vehicle not in clients home Do NOT use a puppy or dog like a hockey puck and slide them on their back across wood floors This trainer claims to be a professional but all the above points were done to us and our puppy.May 3, 2020VerifiedMidas Touch Dog Obedience School's reply
Beth, I will not address these false accusations, but I will say that you are the one who taught the dog to potty in the house. Then you failed to do the homework or follow my instructions. Then you gave up on me and the training after 2 sessions. I bid you a good day.
Midas Touch Dog Obedience training was just that....Midas Touch! My two dogs were crazy and wild because I had no control. Upon our very first visit, James had them listening and not pulling on the leash, which was one of the worst problems. Now we all can enjoy a NICE walk in our neighborhood! Best money I've spent.Jun 24, 2020Verified
I found James on Thumbtack and so glad I did! He saved our peace of mind and worked so hard with us and our dog Bear. It was not easy, it takes a lot of effort but James constantly checked back with me, provided support and encouragement and listened to all my concerns. Bear is high energy, stubborn and smart but I knew he could be a “good boy” with the right trainer. James was definitely the right trainer!Apr 24, 2020Verified
Jim did a great job with our, at one time, “fuzzy jerk”. He was patient and flexible with our busy schedules and made training a relaxed and enjoyable time. He is fairly priced and in the roughly month long time period we’ve work with him our dog has become much better behaved. I feel like Jim has taught us how to keep this training going with out his assistants, which is the true showing of a good trainer of any type.Sep 28, 2019VerifiedMidas Touch Dog Obedience School's reply
