Today was our first day training with Dawn and it was awesome. She took the time to get aquatinted with our dogs, with my family and our needs regarding training with our puppy. My puppy loved her from the start and my teens felt empowered. Koda was following simple commands by the middle of the session. We are looking forward for next week! Thanks Dawn!
I first took my puppy to Shana, owner of The Grateful Dawg NC, for leash/obedience training. He was an energetic four month old Springer and she helped to properly leash train him so that we could take walks in our busy, city neighborhood. He also learned sit, stay and other basic commands. When my pup was a year old he was diagnosed with food allergies. He had a series of ear infections during his first year caused by the allergies and had become extremely aggressive with me, the vet and the groomers when it involved touching or cleaning his ears. Shana worked with him and, over 12 1/2 hour sessions, she was able to get him passed the aggression. She and I were both able to touch and clean his ears without him trying to bite us. More importantly, the vet was able to examine and treat his ear infections without any problems. The vet removed him from their reactive dog list and he no longer needed to be sedated to be treated for his ears. He is now three years old and has his ears cleaned weekly by me or a professional groomer with no issues. I no longer need to worry that he will go deaf due to an inability to clean and/or treat his ears. Thank you, Shana. My boy is one Grateful Dawg.
I run a dog training business (sk9t.net) and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!
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!
Tally loved having her sitter come and check on her while I was gone. She was a puppy and needed extra attention. I was pleased with their help and the notes from each visit!
Very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I've already noticed positive changes with my puppy and it hasn't even been 24 hours.
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.
Melissa is wonderful my puppies love her! I say her name and they get so excited that she is coming !
I had a red-zone young dog and had gone through numerous trainers who could not make him stop attacking everyone...he was very aggressive. Stacy was a God-send. She very quickly won his trust and immediately helped him and me. She worked with us with care and expertise and I shall always be beholding to her for saving my dog. It is nine years later and he is one of the greatest dogs I have ever had...thanks to Stacy's magic.
I can't recommend Paula/Working Dog Care highly enough. She's conscientious, responsible and treats the dogs in her care like her own. I have an Australian Shepherd and she's spent quite a bit of time helping me get him off to a good start. We've worked in social settings, honed his manners in public (no jumping, etc), and worked on a toning down some of his natural instincts as a herder (barking etc). The training has been enormously beneficial, especially the overnight stays. He comes back to me happy, healthy and better behaved. Paula/working dog care is my #1 choice for dog training and/or boarding.
