He did great with my German Shepherd Loki. Prompt Professional Trainer.
Honestly it has been amazing. I told Mariah the problems I was having with my dog Grace. Not only did she set a clear path forward for what we needed to work on to correct it, but also identified things I needed but didn’t ask for. I’m a soon to be Veteran being medically retired and she’s helping me to train Grace to be my service dog. I had a lot of quotes from bigger trainers, but Mariah was the ONLY one that even addressed my dog by name and the issues I wrote about. So I guess I’ll say this, if you want someone knowledgeable, actually cares enough to read what you write and generally a pretty amazing person. You’ve come to the right place.
Finding Tina has been a real blessing. She loves dogs AND cats....my felines slept in the bed with her. They usually are very shy. I take that as a sure sign she got their vote. I just took a new job and wasn't sure about my travel schedule. Tina is very patient and flexible. She stayed for three nights and I came home to happy pets. I have a 2 year old German Shepherd and 5 year old Mini Schnauzer too. The GS is high energy and Tina has a gift with working with large dogs....not everyone is fond of the Pitt Bulls or German Shepherd breeds....you can rest assured she will know what to do and walked both the GS and mini together.....said "No problem". I'm a bit obsessive "helicopter pet parent" and Tina sent photos and I felt good knowing everybody was happy.
Took our bulldog puppy to obedience training with Angie. She has an amazing connection to animals, is highly professional and is extremely knowledgable.
The Leashlife team made a world of difference for my pups. We have four dogs including from German Shepherd to Yorkie and they could handle everything. They were extremely reaponsive, professional, and great to work with. I'm a very private person and I don't let just anyone into my house, so I'm extremely happy that I found a team that I can trust with that kind of responsibility!
We have nothing but great things to say about Joel and the results of him working with our 6month old German shepherd puppy , Remi. He is reliable and trustworthy. Joel is very knowledgeable about k9 behavior, specifically with this breed. His calm and gentle demeanor is non threatening and Remi connected with him right away. Joel gave us updates and reinforcement advice after each session. Remi learned so much after his 6 sessions. We look forward to working with Joel further for training with our next German shepherd puppy and some advanced training with Remi in the near future.
My dogs love Lena! She and her dogs have been helpful in training my hard headed 4 year old German Shorthair pointer! Lena has been very accomodating and creative in finding ways to engage him. Our 11 year old rescue enjoys using his natural talents in the nosework class. Furthermore it keeps his aging mind stimulated. I highly recommend understanding our dogs for your training needs!!
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed having Jenna be my pet sitter for my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Jenna was professional, courteous and exceptionally reliable. She put my worries to ease as I had to schedule her last minute. I am so happy to have found Jenna and will definitely be using her again in the future. :)
When I called Alpha-Moves I was extremely impressed that the President of the company, Nick, was the one to answer. Nick was very professional and was able to work around my schedule to set up a consultation. After he met Sam (my German Shepherd) he was able to customize a plan for me specifically. Sam can now work on and off the leash and is now much more controllable! Not only did he train Sam but he worked with me on how to properly use the training he instilled in her. Overal I would recommend Alpha-moves over anywhere else!
We have 2 Australian shepherds. One is highly energetic and the other is very protective. Theresa not only trained our dogs and corrected their behaviors but also trained us as owners on how to handle our dogs when guest come over. As soon as she walked in she showed complete assertiveness and leadership and the dogs quickly became aware who was the new alpha. She taught us how to become more assertive and the alpha in our home. Theresa always followed up throughout the week to ensure training was useful and on track. She is extremely knowledgable about dog behaviors and how to correct the behaviors we didn't want. Thanks to Theresa we now have to tools and knowledge and our dogs show promise to allow guest into our home.
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!
My wife and I sent out german shepherd for training. When we got him back it was like he was a new dog. Jarod was extremely flexible with us. He went above and beyond to work around my difficult work schedule while boarding Goliath.
Scott is an excellent trainer. He not only wants to train you and your dog. He wants to make sure you and your dog enjoy each other.
