About

Carol Lynn has come for our first training session and was immediately helpful. We will be integrating a new puppy into a house with two existing dogs, one young and can be jealous. Carol Lynn immediately offered great advice to on what behaviors to tackle and how the introduction should go. She was very easy to talk with and open up to about my dog's not-so-well trained tendencies. The first session was great and I think the training and puppy integration will be highly successful due to her knowledge.

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!!!

About

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!

About 7 years ago, we hired Fran to train our Chow puppy, who was out of control. I saw an article she had written in a magazine and was intrigued by her writings. In 2 weeks he was learning all the commands she taught US! I learned so much from her on dog behavior I suggested she have her own TV show, because she truly is better than Ceaser Milan and Victoria Stillwell. Fran doesn't use harsh training methods, she trains by the "reward method", and she LOVES her clients, she is professional, fun, and has more knowledge about training than anyone I have ever worked with! I recently rescued another Chow (named CUJO) that was his name from his previous owners and he is about 8 years old from the shelter I volunteer at and he was apparently abused and conditioned to a home with fighting, and Fran has worked with him and me to desensitize him to banging, knocking, any noise that would signify he was in an abusive environment. He also had a very negative reaction to people touching each , hugging, I had to be very careful when I got him home. He was undernourished and sick.....but now he's coming along wonderfully. HE LOVES HER and so do I. She helped me with a new diet for him for the health issues he was having. She is knowledgeable in every aspect of dog training, agression, agility, puppies, Good Canine Citizens, companion dogs and I recommend her highly. She goes out of her way to do her very best for you and your dog. She just isn't your typical "dog trainer" she absolutely loves what she does and puts 200% into her work ! I highly recommend Fran. !

Amanda is a compassionate, Gentle and knowledgeable trainer for your furry best friend? Amanda fits the bill. She has taught us so much in training our Shih Tzu puppy. She has come to our home and offered over-the-phone emergency help when our puppy decided he didn't want to sleep in his crate anymore. Amanda has practical advice and was able to give us creative solutions. She KNOWS dogs, knows how they will behave and knows how to communicate with the owners. Very pleased to recommend Amanda for any dog training needs.

About

We have known Heidi for over 17 years, and she has trained both of our dogs during that time. In each case, a week with Heidi paid huge dividends in terms of obedience. Most recently, we got a puppy from Heidi, and she is helping us again. The dog training includes teaching us as well. We have boarded our dogs at Blue Line Kennel for years, and couldn't be more pleased. Heidi is great--you can't go wrong trusting your animals to her care.

We used Off Leash K9 Two-Week Board and Train program. Lindsey was amazing. Our pup was extremely well cared for, he learned standard obedience commands that we were having difficulty teaching him, and advanced commands that we believe will make his life (and ours) much more enjoyable when taking him out and about around people and other dogs. We highly recommend Off Leash for any training, they offer different programs to fit animal owners needs. It was a great experience and their prices are very reasonable for the fabulous service they provide.

I needed a trainer to help with my dogs behavioral issues. She is a professional, but retired and doing this on her own because she loves it. She is so down to earth and actually WANTS to help you and your dog, rather then a company that is only about the time and $$. I have 4 dogs- 2 that are puppies- and I will definitely continue with her for any and all training. She is wonderful and definitely the trainer I would recommend for your dog

John Smithhart is an amazing dog trainer. Her took what seemed to be an untrainable dog and trained him. The program was scheduled for six weeks and Spike was slowly responding. John saw the need for more improvement and kept Spike for 3 more weeks. Then John drove with Spike back to Ocean City and taught my family how to deal with Spike. John had the patients of a saint!,

About

Ian was an amazing dog trainer. He was an absolute expert and would go into detail on any questions we had. Like any dog training, it relies heavily on the owner practicing what the trainer assigns as homework. Ian is very thorough with these assignments and I suggest you take notes because he gives you such a vast amount of information. 10/10 would hire again in a heartbeat. I just wish he trained in Raleigh :)

About

The Raleigh Dog Trainer will teach you how to train your dog in the convenience of your own home without costing you a lot of dog bones. In-home training allows one-on-one personal attention for you, the family, and your dog(s). There's no need to yell at your dog(s) when you can learn how to whisper. This method of training will actually improve your relationship with the dog, and make the obedience that much easier. The typical training session can last up to 2 or 3 hours. I don't clock watch, which provides the opportunity to watch your interaction, allow me to get to know the dog, and then teach you specific training exercises. Most clients only need 2-3 lessons as they continue training. Phone consultations during training, after, and for as long as you own your dog are always free. Positive leadership will always create a relationship that is healthy, happy, and balanced for that love of your life kind of dog! Steve Wilson is "The Raleigh Dog Trainer" and behavior specialist. I offer free phone consultations. In-home Training Sessions: * Obedience Training * Therapy Dog Training * Leash Training * Solving Behavioral Issues * Jumping and Hyper Issues * Puppy Training * House Training Nightmares * Recall Command * Barking and Nipping Issues * Socialization Issues * In-home Pet Sit and Training Services * Canine Care Education * Kid's Pet Safety Class - Free for groups or with any lesson * Discounts for Shelter and Rescued Dogs * Gift Certificates
