Excellent service! Very professional and arrived right on time. Best prices by far. I would recommend them for any of the services that they offer. They offered junk removal service which is what I needed and they did an awesome job. I will be using them again!
Though we haven't started our training yet, Joel's understanding of canine behavior; his time spent during the initial, no cost, assessment, recommendations for pre-training preparations, promptness and demeanor leads us to believe we will be successful. Several weeks after training starts we will follow up and let you know how things are progressing.
Very professional. Dogs were better behaved than when I left!!!
My dogs and I love Jennifer! They are always happy when I leave them and even better behaved when we are back home. I love that Jennifer sends pictures to let me know my babies are well. When they need medicine she makes sure it is administered. I feel very fortunate to have found someone who takes such excellent care of my dogs.
We have completed our first of 3 sessions and Lena was excellent with not only the dog but the 'humans' in the house as well. She was very deliberate in her approach and gave specific home work for me and my son. Our dog, Joey is responding already, though we have more work to do. I feel confident I selected the right professional for my dog's needs.
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!
Home Away Pets goes above and beyond to take great care of our two dogs. They are very professional, friendly, and conscientious. Most highly recommended.
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.
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!!!
Alex is excellent, professional and does a great job!
Mariah has been wonderful with my dog. She has been able to personalize his training experience to best meet his needs. Mariah has helped me understand how he learns so that I am better able to train him and bond with my puppy. I feel confident that Mariah will help my dog know basic obedience!
Jenna is very knowledgeable about dogs, she gave us the advice we needed. She will be training our dog further, very satisfied!
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. !
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.
Laura clearly has a way with dogs - my female can be tough on strangers but took to Laura right away! I'm looking forward to engaging her again.
We've had great experiences with Happy Tailz! Very trustworthy, caring and professional which gives me the peace of mind when traveling. I have a 6 year old Labradoodle who gets anxiety when left alone or at a kennel. I can tell she is well taken care of by Melody because I come home to a happy and health dog. I would highly recommend Happy Tailz to anyone looking for a pet sitter and/or dog walker.
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.
Henry is amazing! What he accomplished with my dogs in a matter of hours was mind blowing! He is extremely knowledgeable and my dogs absolutely love it when it’s time to get in the car and go see Henry!
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!
I wish we would have come to Carolina Canine Training years ago! Within the first day, my dog made HUGE gains in his behavior. I think the majority of the training was not even for Cooper, it was for me to learn how to communicate more effectively with him so that expectations were clear. Liz was such a great teacher! Her directions were clear and effective, and she really made learning fun. I would recommend Carolina Canine to anyone who wants a better-behaved, responsive dog. There is hope!
They are awesome, we have never been able to cut my rescue dogs nails and they did. Both my dogs looked and smelled great. Quick responses to emails and text. I will be using them again and recommend them for your grooming needs.
