Service dog training. Steve is great with the dogs. Very impressed with what was taught in a short time. Very personable and great staff. Always asking if there are any questions, and say call for any questions. Would recommend them to anyone!
My husband and I took our dog to Kat for training as a hearing dog. The training was approximately eight months. Kat has an exceptional training facility. She is very experienced and knowledgeable in training service dogs. She excels in clicker training techniques. She has a valuable library of training books that she will loan to her clients. It would have been helpful to see a live actual hearing dog work even though she had several videos we watched together. Overall the training classes were a very rewarding and beneficial experience for us and our dog.
As the new owners of Waggers Dog Depot, we are deeply concerned about the welfare of all of the dogs that we groom. While we respect Rob's opinion, I want to explain that we conducted a thorough investigation of his complaint. We spoke with the groomer who serviced Rob's dog as well as the other groomers on duty and found no evidence of his claim. We also spoke to the after-hours veterinarian who treated his dog for the eye infection who stated that grooming was an unlikely source of the infection given the short timeframe since grooming. We also spoke to Rob's regular veterinarian regarding the skin issue who said that given the dense coat of the dog, combing the dog's hair could have irritated an existing hot spot hidden beneath the triple undercoat. The vet complimented the grooming and said that there was no indication that the dog was harmed or mistreated by the groomer. Given the information we were able to gather, we felt that a refund of the grooming fee was adequate as a gesture of good faith. Rob's second dog, who was brought in on the same day and for the same service had no issues whatsoever. We take matters like this very seriously and are committed to providing the best service to our clients and their pets. While ownership is different, all policies and staff have remained the same.
We called Best in Breed Dog Training the week after we rescued Nellie when she was 13 weeks old. Found under a car, she was scared, hungry and really wanting to be loved. Calling Chris was the best decision we ever made after taking Nellie in to our home because he taught us the proper way to raise and train a dog. With Best in Breed we were taught simple and effective training tools that helped Nellie become part of our pack. I really think EVERY dog owner should train with Best in Breed!
We board, train and groom pets. Our kennels were constructed in 1997, and we are a full-service pet facility. Your dogs will have a blast vacationing in the mountains.
Asheville Dog Rehabilitation can help you rehabilitate your problem dog of all types of unwanted behavior. Negative behavior almost always arises because of something that we, as owners, are not doing for our dogs. We help guide owners to learn what steps are needed to be taken to help their dogs become more balanced and live happier, healthier lives. Our home-training sessions are done where the offending behaviors occur and are available to best suit your schedule and training needs. Sessions are hands on, and the skills you learn will be put to use immediately. We take an in-depth history of your dog's behavior, assess exactly what the problems are, and implement a training program to successfully modify your dog's behavior. Family members and other members of the household are encouraged to participate in the sessions, as consistency and knowledge of the proper training techniques is the key to successfully correct a dog's behavior. You will see results instantly and will feel confident in your new role as pack leader! Asheville Dog Rehabilitation specializes in dog psychology first and foremost and traditional dog training second. For a quote and more info, contact us directly through our website or FB page.

Our boot camp training gives your dog one on one training using repetition and 100 percent consistency along with calm assertive leadership to provide the best training available. Two week minimum stay with discounts for longer stays, multiple dogs, and newly adopted dogs. Private Dog Training: We offer hourly private lessons at your home and work with you and your dog on a variety of issues, from basic obedience such as sit, down, come, stay and loose leash walking; to full off leash reliability. Treadmill Training: Treadmill training for dogs provides a muscle enhancing and toning fitness regime that not only improves the overall health and vitality of a dog, it helps curb destructive behavior problems by releasing excess energy and also increases life span by preventing obesity.

I have a passion for dog training. I decided to take my passion more directly and finish up my dog training school and become a professional dog trainer, training K9s. I currently have two Belgian Police, one Solid Black German Police, a Presa Canario and a Pit Bull. I'm laying my foundation for success at the moment, and I will graduate from my school in late spring, early summer and train full-time. Obedience training and personal protection training are my main focus and also some behavioral issues depending on the severity of the dog at hand.
I am a freelance now, but I can work in any capacity in these fields of animal husbandry, horses training, instructing and stable management. I train dogs and can walk them. I can pet sit and groom dogs. I am good with farm animals and have milked goats and horses. I have managed wild animals in small zoos.
Be the leader your dog deserves. I have 25 years of experience. I have taught classes on dog training, and behavior at UNCA. I teach motivational training basic to off-leash . I am vet-recommended, and offer a lifetime guarantee on my training .
I've been caring for pets for most of my life, animals from equine to reptiles. I love animals of all kinds and rescued some of my pets, from newborn to grown animals. I can train your pets as well, I've trained cats, dogs, and donkeys
I specialize in pet sitting for dogs and cats. I will feed them as instructed and keep any litter boxes clean. I enjoy getting to know each pet and spending time with them. I also walk them and will collect mail, put out garbage, turn on/off lights, etc. for those clients who are on vacation. While I strive to be flexible, I do this on a part-time basis only. Unfortunately, I am unable to bathe cats or dogs. However, I have many years of practice in giving them the TLC they deserve and have trained my share as well! I believe that you deserve the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your pets are well cared for in your absence. In my house we have a 3 year old Great Pyrenese, an almost 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, and a 6 year old Chinese Crested Powder Puff, along with an 8 year old Abyssinian cat. The two large dogs weigh over 120 pounds apiece but are the sweetest family members one could ever hope for. The Powder Puff weighs little more than the lithe and beautiful Abyssinian cat, but has an outsized personality as big as all the others combined. Former dogs have included German Shepherds, Rotweilers, and a number of mixed breeds. Previous cats included Maltese, Tonkinese, Tortoise Shell, and many mixed breeds.
