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.
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!!!
Results are immediate with Kevin's K-9 Academy! Kevin worked with our 2 1/2 yo dog for 1 week to correct her fear of cars, runners, and bikers. On day 1 Kevin started a video journal with notes and instructions for me so that I was able to see exactly how to correct the behavior myself. By day 2, my dog was beginning to self correct and Kevin's videos demonstrated her in live settings with people, cars, and bikes. I felt confident enough by day 3 to take my dog out to see for myself. Kevin spent ample time with me, instructing me how to correct and train. The instruction and video journal are not typical with other trainers. Kevin's K9 Academy exceeded my expectations with training and personal attention. I highly recommend Kevin and give the Academy 5 stars in price, results, and follow up.
John was absolutely amazing. I have recommended him to as a trainer to all my friends and I stop strangers at the vet to recommend him. We are extremely pleased with his training for our Siberian husky Shera. He taught us correct commands and the appropriate ways to use them. She went from a wild husky puppy to a sweet lovable puppy. As new things came up with her, he adjusted the training sessions to accomodte any of her issues. John is also great about follow up and is always open to contact if you have additional questions or if any new negative behaviors occur. We are so thankful for John. He was worth every penny. Any new dog we get will be trained by him. Hands down, best trainer.
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.
She is professional and very punctual. Loves animals and the training is great. My dog is happy when she gets here.
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.
We hired Theresa because she seemed very qualified and had a positive training style. That's is exactly what she brings. Theresa knows animals and their behavior, so she knows the right things to do in order to make your pet do exactly what it's supposed to. We have a puppy pitt that we will be continuing our training with Theresa so that we can maximize her potential. If you are wondering who to choose to train your dog, Theresa would be an excellent choice. Call her up and talk to her. Setup an appointment to have her come to your house you will not be disappointed.
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.
Barbara and Allen trained two Great Danes for me. One (Duke) that had been badly abused and was terrified of everyone, men especially, the other (Dori) born deaf and blind. Allen spent hours gaining Duke's trust and Barbara worked with with Dori until like Helen Keller, the information clicked like a light bulb. She was trained by touch and all who met her were so very impressed. I know the training gave them both a much happier life than they would have been able to experience otherwise. Duke became a confident, joyful fun dog and Dori had no clue she had handicaps. I am grateful for their services.
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!
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.
Betsy started working with our four year old Golden, and our two year old Labradoodle to teach them appropriate loose lease training. The dogs absolutely adore her, and have improved tremendously in their skills. Betsy is attentive to how to improve the process of getting their leashes on when they are so excited, to constant training with them and myself on what to expect is necessary to immediately correct in order for training to be success. I cannot say enough nice things about Betsy's work, but simply seeing the improvement in walking the dogs is amazing. You will not regret hiring Instinct Canine Services to work with your beloved pets.
Fran is a wonderful and talented dog trainer! She comes to you and works on whatever your needs are. She has a great personality. My dog loves her (and so do my cats). We love her gentle and fun approach with our golden. She gives the whole family the skills we need to continue the work after she leaves. She is always available if we need help in between sessions too. Her group classes are great too! I recommend her to everyoe.
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.
I take pride in give the best help and training possible.
My service stands out from certain others: I'm well acquainted, i know what my future goals are ,how i want them to be met and when i want the to be met and animals are my weakness , love them very much , talk to them, walk with them.
