Joel did a great job with our rescue pug and I would hire him again. In just 6 short 20-30 minute sessions, he provided general obedience training and our dog has been very well behaved since then. He is efficient with his time, sticking to the dog's attention span of 20-30 minutes, and provides positive reinforcement, thus avoiding the things like choke or shock collars. He also provided guidance to my family on what we should or shouldn't do. Joel was very affordable compared to the various options out there but I felt like we sacrificed nothing. Lessons were private and in my house or neighborhood. Quality was excellent and you can tell Joel cares about you individually and not as just another client. He also follows up after the sessions are done to check in and make sure all is okay. Top notch!
Tina got in touch with us very quickly and sent us pictures of my cat and dog while we were away. I felt better leaving them knowing that Tina was spending the day with them. She truly loves animals. I would definitely ask her to come back and watch them again.
We have had only one session with Lena and have already seen amazing results with our 1 y.o. dog. Lena gives hands-on training to you and your dog. We are training our pup to be a therapy dog, and he is already well on his way to having the skills needed to pass the test. Well done Lena Skov! Glad we found you on Thumbtack!!!
Drew has been great with my dog and my dog seems to love him.
Kevin provided a crash course in training for my older dog, who needed the basics. He was very insightful and helpful with information on the best way to train work with him and have him be successful. We will definitely be having more sessions.
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.
She is professional and very punctual. Loves animals and the training is great. My dog is happy when she gets here.
Angie Epling is very good at training your dog and my dog Becky loves her . My dog just is too young still to really get it .
I can't say enough about Jarod Hutton and Dog Gone Good K9 Training. At this point my dog is smarter than I am. Super well behaved and socialized. Jarod's techniques don't require punishment or treats, just affection and trust me THIS WORKS!
He was a great dog sitter kept us up to date on the visits will definetely call him back
Jenna is very knowledgeable about dogs, she gave us the advice we needed. She will be training our dog further, very satisfied!
We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!
Will always gets my dog Odie done in a jif! He always looks great and comes home happy as can be.
Knowing I was going to need someone to take care of my five dogs and cat after eye surgery, I needed someone I could completely rely on. Libby was available whenever I needed her. She came over and took my dogs outside a few times each day even though I was home. I was unable to bend over or lift anything over 15 lbs. She took them in the yard, ran them around, fed them, got them water and lots of petting. Two have special needs with their eyes (runs in the family) and she made sure they were clean and medicated. Not sure what I would have done without I could count on. My dogs were relaxed and slept with me most of the time, they were content even though Mommy couldn't take care of them. Thanks Libby, you really went above and beyond for me. It is great knowing you have someone you can count on for your furbabies.
Theresa was very good at listening to what we described about our dog's behaviors, daily habits, and overall personality, and she seemed to customize her training for our dog. Within only a couple of visits, we have seen marked improvement in our dog's transition from the shelter to our home, as well as a decrease in her overall anxiety. Additionally, Theresa was able to provide references for trainers that can help where she can't, for instance in group dog training for our dog. Her love of dogs is easy to see, and we would recommend her to anyone needing help with their pup.
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.
My dog had the best experience! Boy did belle not even miss me! Deff using again! I recommend to anyone who wants there animal to feel at home
We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.
After the passing of our Black lab, last year it was so hard for us to get another dog but we knew we were ready. We seeked out Aaron and he found us the most beautiful chocolate lab puppy!! The kept him for the first few weeks and started him potty training and some basic commands and then they delivered him to us all the way to Virginia from Charlotte!! This company obviously really loves animals and has their best interest at heart. Thank you so much for our good boy!!! He will be continuing his puppy education here soon and we are looking forward to working with them again!
He does a fantastic job. Through his work you can clearly see he loves what he does and not only that he truly cares the animals he’s working with. There’s plenty of people who claim they train dogs, this guy is the real deal
We had a great overall experience with Glenn as he trained our dog and us. :) Glenn was patient, well-informed and friendly. He answered all of our follow-up questions throroughly and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the training process. The one caveat I would suggest is to establish a communication plan upfront with him. Once we addressed that email was his preferred channel, things went more smoothly. We would recommend Glenn and his family to anyone looking for an educated dog trainer!
