Though we haven't started our training yet, Joel's understanding of canine behavior; his time spent during the initial, no cost, assessment, recommendations for pre-training preparations, promptness and demeanor leads us to believe we will be successful. Several weeks after training starts we will follow up and let you know how things are progressing.
Very professional. Dogs were better behaved than when I left!!!
Karen was very quick to respond, and a very gracious woman to work with. Her employees are a direct reflection of her and her company. They cleaned my house better than any company or person had ever done in the past, and in record time AND we own 2 large dogs. 😳 I have already booked them again and can’t wait to continue this new relationship which will make my life easier and cleaner! Thx so much Karen and company!!🤗
We have completed our first of 3 sessions and Lena was excellent with not only the dog but the 'humans' in the house as well. She was very deliberate in her approach and gave specific home work for me and my son. Our dog, Joey is responding already, though we have more work to do. I feel confident I selected the right professional for my dog's needs.
Home Away Pets goes above and beyond to take great care of our two dogs. They are very professional, friendly, and conscientious. Most highly recommended.
We started training our 1yr old standard poodle with the goals of controlling her anxiety. Getting her to respond to commands when she’s distracted, walking better on a leash, with the ultimate goal of being able to run and walk with her safely off leash. I liked that Kevin caters the training to the individual dog and owner, and he taught me how to work with her. After two sessions and me doing my homework she’s walking better and calmer around other dogs. I ran with her for a couple miles off leash and she stayed close to heel the whole time. When we passed a cross country team going the other direction she started getting excited but I told her to “heel” and she tucked back and trotted right past. When we passed a couple other dogs she did the same thing. We’re thrilled!
I have worked with Holland K9 services for 3.5 years and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone. When we adopted our dog Buddy, he was so high energy that we had to let him run off leash to burn that energy off and be a happy dog. However he was completely unresponsive to commands off leash, and would charge (friendly and excited, but still) any dog or person he spotted. After a bad experience with another dog training group, we found John. He helped us to transition to using an E-collar (shock collar) in order to enforce off-leash commands. I was initially nervous about that type of training due to our prior experience but with John it went great. Buddy was never fearful like he was with the other trainers. Our dog became wonderful and basically 100% reliable off-leash, and all of us were so much happier. We hired him again when we got our second dog, and he helped us train her as well as brush up Buddy on his skills again. Training with him is definitely worth every cent.
Brendan was extremely knowledgeable, understanding, professional and has a great personality. He helped me to understand the foundation that has to be built to assure trust in training my dog. I look forward to working with him.
Mariah has been wonderful with my dog. She has been able to personalize his training experience to best meet his needs. Mariah has helped me understand how he learns so that I am better able to train him and bond with my puppy. I feel confident that Mariah will help my dog know basic obedience!
Angie with Furever Home Training was and still is my very first choice and recommendation for dog training and behavior. She is so incredibly experienced and knowledgable, and her classes are so fun! I took my aussie mix puppy, Banjo, through her puppy class and Canine Good Citizenship class. Both were invaluable parts of Banjo's growth, socialization, and training. We live in Indiana now but I STILL trust Angie with my training questions from time to time. With Banjo still in those tricky teenage pup months, I only wish we were still close by! Anyone considering dog training needs to check Furever Home Training out. Be it in group classes or private sessions, Angie is patient, so awesome at her job, and it doesn't hurt that she is super affordable too. Banjo and I miss you Angie! Lots of woofs and love from Indy!
Excellent, dependable, great with my dog. Highly recommend.
Jenna is very knowledgeable about dogs, she gave us the advice we needed. She will be training our dog further, very satisfied!
We've had great experiences with Happy Tailz! Very trustworthy, caring and professional which gives me the peace of mind when traveling. I have a 6 year old Labradoodle who gets anxiety when left alone or at a kennel. I can tell she is well taken care of by Melody because I come home to a happy and health dog. I would highly recommend Happy Tailz to anyone looking for a pet sitter and/or dog walker.
I am out of town a lot, so Will from Dog Pro services takes care of my dog Bruno. I like that he also trained my dog with basic obedience. Training was easy and it's affordable Will is an awesome guy.
I worked with Blair for a few months following her, after extensive schooling for dog training. Despite my schooling, I found her to be incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and easy to talk to. She knows so much about dogs, their needs, and their abilities. From questions regarding my own problem dogs, to conversations with clients regarding tough behavior modification, she's a wonderful lady to talk to. I would recommend her to my friends, family, and colleagues!
Nick with Alpha Moves Dog Training was very the very thing Penny my Leonberger and I needed. Penny is very stubborn and i was at my end for at home training. Nick did a great job teaching Penny and my self the Communication need for a great man/ dog relationship. You will not be disappointed with Alpha Moves Dog Training.
I have never had a pet sitter stay overnight for my dogs but met Darlene and she was so nice, professional and my dogs loved her. She has dog sit for me twice and am very pleased with Darlene. Would not let anyone else sit with them. Always keeps me updated on them and sends pics of them. Has definitely put my mind at ease!!!
Very respectful and great at understanding your wants and needs in your dog. Organized and very professional.
There is nothing like walking in and everything looks and smells amazing. Every experience has been terrific. She is extremely accommodating, trustworthy, professional and reliable. Thanks Treasure, Terrific job!
Amanda stayed in our home with 2 well loved dogs and a large fish tank for 4 days. She exceeded our expectations and provided excellent care to the animals. It was our first experience having someone stay in the home with them but it won't be our last. The dogs were truly in love with her and she did an exceptional job. Amanda sent us daily reports with photos of the dogs and always did a great job to reassure us the fur babies were doing well. We highly recommend her services and have already booked her agin for our next vacation away.
