Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.
Lisa is a highly gifted trainer! Her innate ability to instill calm behavior is unmatched by any trainer. Furthermore, her experience training horses gives her the ability to work with larger more unruly dogs. Where other trainers wanted to break the dog into submission or spoil them, Lisa walked a line that shows the dogs they are loved but are on the bottom of the totem pole. In addition, I was taught how to work with my dog in order to further his training. Her prices are more than fair and her results are amazing!
Amanda has done wonders for what was already a pretty good dog, but a bit stubborn and way too clever too often. There is still more work to do but I would easily recommend her to anyone looking for a good dog trainer.
Jacqui is an awesome trainer! Through her training & suggestions, our girl Molly has been more responsive to us. Through Jacqui’s positive re-enforcement we also now know a much better way to communicate with Molly. Her methods are basic & simple to follow so we can follow up with Molly’s “homework”. If you want a great dog trainer, Jacqui is the lady for you. She comes highly recommended by our family.
Susan has been handling and training our dogs for the breed ring since 1994. During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.) She has helped us evaluate litters as well. She has always been generous not only with her skills but her knowledge. We look forward to continuing to work with her.
We adopted a third dog (youngster) into a home of two senior dogs, one who is very aggressive with other dogs. Kristin was able to walk in and tackle all three dogs by helping us go back to the basics with obedience. She was patient with the humans and obviously LOVED our pack too. I would recommend Kristin for any of your needs. Two months later and we're down to one scuffle a day (minimal) and the ability for everyone to sleep in the same bedroom. Thanks, Kristin!
Lloyd Mosher is a highly competent dog trainer. He is especially liked by my dog, Jax who has shown remarkable progress under his tutelage. Jax was completely out of control before I hired Lloyd. Although he's experience only one session with Lloyd, I can see that he's responding under Lloyd's instructions. Our first session was spent on teaching Jax who was the leader, and getting him to respond. I was impressed with Lloyd's manner, knowledge, and love for my dog. I recommend him most highly.
Ashley Clark is an amazing dog trainer. She is focused on the success of both dog and handler. Ashley is a trainer who can help you build a relationship with your dog that is both positive and rewarding. I feel very fortunate to have met her through her volunteer work at a local shelter. She has helped me with my extremely fearful dog Dewey. He has made great strides with her guidance. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and skilled dog trainer invested in strengthening the relationship between you and your dog:Ashley is the best.
Renee was excellent working with our small Lab puppy. She trained us and the dog together :) She seems to really know the nature and behaviors of dogs. I would highly recommend Renee to anyone looking to train their dog!
Excellent trainer. Excellent training. Beyond excellent results! So happy we sent our pup here to get trained. Thank you!
Jessica has a natural ability to connect with dogs. We were told by many trainers our dachshund was untrainable but she never gave up and now he’s the dog we always hoped for!
Ive hunted over labs and pointing breeds for over 40 years and I have known and worked with a number of pro trainers. You can expect all good pros to steady a dog, teach force-fetch, etc. A very big difference is in their attitude and approach. Not the dogs; the trainers. Daves style has been refreshing and I enjoy working my dogs with him. I definitely learn, and all that shows up in the dog work.
Chris saved our dog's life and greatly added to the quality of ours. We came to CSTS about 8 months ago, frustrated with our dog's aggressiveness toward other dogs and unpredictability around people. We were out of ideas. Chris' knack for identifying our dog's triggers and teaching us how to correct those triggers have left us very very satisfied customers!
Friends again dog training has helped me build my confidence with walking my dogs! I was surprised to see how much they could learn.
Paige Button is an excellent dog trainer and her enthusiasm shines in her work. She is fascinated by animals and this shows in her training style. Calm and patient, I highly recommend her to anybody!
I have been an avid bird hunter for years but never had a trained dog of my own. Recently I got a new dog and decided this time I wanted to train the dog for the field. I was recommended to EAST COAST FIELD DOG by a friend and went to meet the trainner. We have gotten together several times for training and I can't tell you how much I am impressed with how my dog works. The training has been great. For any one who wants a good hunting buddy and a well trained dog, this is the trainer to see!!!
Kathleen is a skilled dog trainer who intuitively understood the best way to correct unwanted behavior that one of my dog was exhibiting and trained the other not to pull while on a leash. Although our initial work together was over a year ago, we remain in touch and I know I can always turn to her for help with any issue. Having also boarded one of my dogs with her, I know the care and attention each dog staying with her receives.
Jess was simply the best trainer we have ever had..and we have had airedales since 1981. She is totally professional, firm and compassionate and developed a loving rapport with our dogs. She has kept the dogs while we were out of town and I was always worry-free. We miss her lots now that she is no longer in Santa fe.
Susie is a wonderful trainer. She loves dogs and you can tell that in the way she teaches. Hope is learning well from Susie , I am excitted to continue to take lessons from Susie.
I train dogs. I can clean them, teach them tricks, and do more. I can also teach them to love kids.
