Joel helped train our 4 year old dog who a needed an attitude adjustment and it definitely made a difference! He also taught us great techniques that work and get her to listen. Flexible scheduling and the prices were great compared to any other dog training. Would definitely recommend giving Joel a try!
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!!!
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!
Drew has been great with my dog and my dog seems to love him.
My dog is making progress, slowly but surely. It really is up to the owner to do the homework and train the dog outside of training sessions. I work long days so some days I do not train, and I can tell that when I do he is a lot better than when I don't. Mariah has been fantastic so far & Bayley loves her! For new folks starting out, ask your trainer if it's okay to record little snippets of the first few sessions so that when you're training during the week if you forget hand signals or verbal commands, you have the video on your phone to look back at. That really helped me through my first few weeks of training!
I was very impressed with the training my dog received. Kacey was the most difficult dog I have ever owned. We could not have anyone over to our home or take her out in public. After her training, she Is a different dog. She listens and we can now take her out anywhere. I can’t say enough good things about this company!! Definitely would recommend to anyone!!!
I cannot recommend Jarod highly enough. The work he put into training my dog was unbelievable and he has absolutely transformed my dog. My fearful, anxiety ridden pup came home confident and obedient and full of life. You WILL NOT find a better or more dedicated trainer.
She is professional and very punctual. Loves animals and the training is great. My dog is happy when she gets here.
Jenna is very knowledgeable about dogs, she gave us the advice we needed. She will be training our dog further, very satisfied!
We are very pleased to have had our new family member trained by Fran at Lake Norman Natural Dog Training. Lexie arrived to us spunky but with good manners and crate trained. Fran even took her back while we were on vacation. An awesome experience! I would highly recommend her.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
Liz (and Meritt) did an awesome job of training Spartacus - our cockapoo - and us! What they do at CCT is everything a dog owner would want - they truly love what they do and it shows in how they help dogs be such great family members and how Spartacus loves going there for socializing and training with other dogs. I could not imagine having a dog without them.
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!
He took great care of our dog during training. He was responsive to me, kept me informed on progress, gave updates and spent time explaining the training before and at graduation, so that we all could be successful. Very pleased with his training.
Fran has been a life saver, not only for my new rescue dog but for my older dog as well. Her ability to read what the dog is doing and why is amazing! Thank you so much for your direction as we are enjoying getting out walking with our dogs, and are feeling more confident that we are now in control! Fran not only trains the dogs but also the owners. I highly recommend Fran if you need help with your dog no matter what the age. Thanks again!!
Kat was able to help me after I adopted my 5 year old, Rufus. He was a rescue dog that didn't have the greatest go at life for the first 5 years. Sweet, loving boy, but he definitely needed some guidance as far as training and obedience went. She came over to our house- met with us- and put together a plan to help get him on the fast track to where he needed to be. Through very thorough one on one training she was able to get him to *not* jump with excitement on to visitors (and even me) when they came through the door, she trained him to always stay in "place" when commanded, and the biggest thing of all was that she was able to train him to walk on a leash. I know that sounds silly, but before she worked with him- he was all over the place on a leash. With her tools and methods, he now walks by my side as if the leash isn't even there. Even more so, I can now walk him (where it's permitted) OFF of the leash and he obeys every command. He's still the same sweet boy I adopted, but he wouldn't be the well trained boy he is today without the work and training she did with him.
