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.
Drew and Shannon have been working with our puppy for about a month now and they have been wonderful! They provide daily updates on how she is doing on her walks while we are at work and they have even provided us with some helpful training tips. Nothing but good things to say!
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.
Dog Gone Good K9 Training helped our family dog so much. She is a BIG DOG, a Great Pyrenees, and she was hearding my small boys. When we got her back, she listens, she hasn’t hearded the 1 and 5 year olds, and we love how well behaved she is. Thank you for taking such good care of our Savannah!!!
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.
Very professional and reliable, did a wonderful job with my dog and made sure we understood every part of the training process. Would definitely recommend.
My sweet Charlie came home from 3 weeks with Aaron and Jessica a totally different dog. I can't believe how much of a joy he is to be around now! Thank you so much Pack Leader K9 for giving Charlie a second chance.
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!
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.
