The moment I posted that I needed help with my puppy, Dawn answered me and was able to come to my home THAT DAY! She was so good with our dogs and not only taught them many tricks and manners we had been trying for months, but also taught me and my family so much about her breed and how to continue our training with our dog. She knew her facts and has a lot of knowledge on dogs. Very impressed and will 100% recommend Dawn to everyone who needs dog training.
What is there not to say?! Shawn knows how to train but more importantly, she knows how to train people. A dog is trainable . . . give the dog the command and the dog will follow. Reinforcement and the training of people is where the key to success of dog training is or not. Got it Shawn. Your words did not fall short on this girls ears. If you are looking for someone who will get you to start believing that your pet can truly behave then you need not look farther. Shawn Kwiatkowski will get both pet and owner walking in line together... The end result a behavin' relationship.
We got a puppy and were having a lot of potty training issues. Myke was able to put our minds at ease, as I was quickly coming to my wits end. He was very patient with our dog and showed us a lot of good training exercises to work with the puppy’s behavior and potty training problems. Even Myke agreed that our dog was a little stubborn on potty training but didn’t give up until we learned a strategy that worked for our pup. We are happy to report that our puppy is doing a lot better. Some in house accidents, due to her not fully undersnading how to get our attention to go outside, but she at least sits by the back door and tries to wait for us. Life has been difficult with a one year old toddler and a puppy but Myke helped us a lot and we just have to continue with his techniques and I’m sure this pup will be a cherished pet for many years!
United K9 has been great so far! It's not like obedience training and really does take a more deep-rooted approach to change behavior rather than simple commands and repetition. We have a lab/boxer mix who's very high energy and tends to be anxious and dominant. We have worked with Ashley and she's gone over the basic rules of the house as well as nutrition and other key pieces of information - our dog has responded well to the rules so far and it's allowed her to have more confidence in us as her leaders. Ashley has also been very prompt with setting up last minute visits to go over some of our dog's more difficult behaviors and we appreciate her patience while we continue to work through things! We would definitely recommend United K9, especially if you have a stubborn pup and think you'll need multiple sessions.
I hired Erik to train my Golden Retriever when I was referred by a friend who said he also used Erik's services and the results were impressive. So I contacted Erik in hopes that he could help my dog who had difficulty being around other dogs, was very nervous, and would constantly lick her paw. Basically my dog was a bundle of nerves. She had difficulty sitting still and trying to teach her anything seemed impossible. So I thought I would take my friends advice and give Concise K9 a try. Within a few sessions the progress was obvious. She had commands instilled in her and seemed to be proud of herself! She also finally stopped licking her paw, which was a habit she had for a while. My dog was always happy to see Erik and his interaction with her was great. I always felt comfortable leaving her with him for the lessons. I would highly recommend this man for his expertise in dog training as my dog is now a well behaved, secure girl and her good qualities shine. Erik is also a true professional and honest in his dealings.
I worked with Alex for years, if you want the best bond and training for your dog, look no further.
Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!
Emilio cared for my elderly dog over the last year of her life. He was great with medications and dealing with her slower pace, but most of all he was incredible with his care and love for her. He has a huge heart and takes the responsibility of caring for pets very seriously. I have never worried about a thing when I have known that Emilio is in charge!
Jennifer is thoroughly committed to improving dog and child relationships through safety education and family support. I highly recommend her information and services to every family planning for children!
