  • K9 Good Dog

    (2 reviews)

    K9 Good Dog is a nonprofit community service established to deal with three issues, which are as follows: 1. When people bring home their new dogs, they often have no idea what to do or where to turn to with questions and concerns. 2. Dogs are often returned to shelters for problems that could have been prevented in the first place or that could still be remedied. 3. Dog parents need better education, so they don't put their dogs in jeopardy and contribute to behavior issues. We understand the "language of the dog," and we use gentle, proven techniques to communicate on a deeper level with your pup or older dog, and we'll teach you this language too! We know how to train dogs to conform no matter what their temperament, age, or breed because we understand their psychology. All of our training sessions and instruction take place on your property. We travel to you, so you can save time and energy, and so your dog gets trained in its comfortable and familiar surroundings. All of our training is done with the positive reward-based system that gives your dog a happy and fun experience way to learn. Call us today, and let us make your life easier by effectively training your dog, whether a new puppy or old friend.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dogs Anonymous

(28 reviews)

Most of my clients are folks who simply care about their dogs, and can recognize when a problem is arising and heads the problem off quickly by bringing in a professional to help them.

If there is a person who gets paid doing what he loves, it would be Christopher of Dogs Anonymous. He simply loves working with dogs. Clients love it when they have him for basic obedience training in combination with behavior modification for their dogs.

The most effective strategy I try to keep in mind for customer satisfaction is to treat each case individually. There is no single plan for dealing with unwanted canine behavior and more often than not, it's the people who have to change in order to affect real behavioral change in their dog.

His favorite project was Lola, an English bulldog who was both aggressive as much as overly excited and had bitten her owner's mother. After two sessions, Lola's aggressions were a thing of the past. Now, her owner brings Christopher in regularly to help integrate foster dogs into her pack.

A small problem can become huge. Consider Dogs Anonymous now!

    Susan is fantastic with training our dog, Winter. She is also great with our other two dogs (she can teach old dogs new tricks)! She is extremely experienced and able to explain her techniques to our children so they can participate in the training as well. She has been very patient and accommodating with our hectic schedule. She even went above and beyond and found a collar for Winter and brought it over during one of our sessions. I would definitely recommend Susan for dog training!

    Off-Leash K9 Training, LLC

    (15 reviews)

    My husband and I came to Off-Leash, specifically Rion Ferguson, in need of some obedience/behavioral training for our dog, Cooper. We adopted Cooper from a shelter about 4 years ago. At the time he was good with other dogs and with people. As time went on, we noticed he had become dog-reactive and people-reactive. We consulted a dog trainer about a year ago with our concerns. The trainer came over to our home for an evaluation and Cooper ended up biting her on the arm. At the end of the evaluation we pretty much were told there is something wrong with our dog and there wasn't much hope of being able to train him. Feeling discouraged, we decided to accept the way things were and not pursue this any further. It was at this time that a behaviorist put Cooper on Prozac for aggressive behavior. A few months ago we decided to seek help again for Cooper. That's when we stumbled upon Rion and Off-Leash. I can't even begin to express how much of a game-changer Rion has been for Cooper. In such a small amount of time Rion had Cooper mingling not only with other dogs but with people as well. Rion understood how much anxiety it caused me to be separated from my dog so he took the time to continuously send me videos and text/phone updates. Rion demonstrates passion and an immense understanding of dog behavioral modification training. Not only was Rion amazing during Cooper's training but he's been so helpful in the weeks following Coop's return to our home. My husband and I have tons of questions and Rion is always available to help us through any issues we are having. We now have a happy, confident dog who doesn't need Prozac any more!

    I discovered Heidi at least six months ago, and she has been training my dogs ever since. She is wonderful with both dogs and humans, having a special gift for teaching both. I have multiple breeds of different sizes, temperaments, ages, and abilities, and I have been so pleased with what Heidi has done that I am now having her handle two of my dogs in the Conformation show ring. She is also preparing them to win Obedience titles as well. I had never really thought about going beyond basic Obedience until I saw how much the dogs truly enjoyed working with her. We may also pursue Agility if the dogs are keen on it. I have had several other trainers and handlers in the past, but I think I have learned more from Heidi than any of the others. And her new facility should be fabulous; the setting is absolutely gorgeous!

    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.

    Winston-Salem Dog Training by Jim Hodges

    I have been studying dogs, dog training, and dog behavior professionally in Winston-Salem, NC since the early 90s. The theory of what I teach to my dog training owners is simple. Dogs are pack animals. Dogs are not humans. We have to learn to communicate to dogs on their level, not ours. Dogs are meant to serve us. When we lead consistently with praise, reward, and discipline, they love it! Your dog will actually worship the ground you walk on. Dogs are born into a dog pack with certain dog pack behaviors instinctively instilled in them. And, when they leave that pack and go to their new home, you become a part of a new pack. It's an instinctive reaction for dogs. In every dog pack, there should be a leader. It creates safety, happiness, and comfort for everyone. Who is the leader of your pack? Call me now. I can help you. I guarantee my results if you dare to become your dog's leader!
