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!
I hired Amanda with Good Dog! Family Pet Training,LLC for in home dog training. She was amazing! Her knowledge of dogs is impressive. She knew just what to do with our dog Brady and how to teach me with training him. She definitely loves dogs and he responded well to her. I so appreciated this service of in home dog training.
Very effective, relaxed and helpful. It was an enjoyable training experience for me and my dog. Lots of good tips yo continue to build in the foundational training.
I don't have enough good words to say about Nathalia!! She is amazing. I am a first time dog owner and am so lucky to have found Nathalia to see my dog every day while I am at work. She is so patient and loving to all dogs and animals it allows me to rest assured that my dog is getting taken care of when I'm not there. She will bring some friends over to play with my dog and send an update and picture every day. I couldn't ask for anything more- I am 110% satisfied! I would highly recommend her for anything you need!
Sue and Catherine have shown dogs for me for about 15 years now. Different breed, different temperaments, and they have ALwAYS been kind to the dogs. I have had other handlers at various times, and Sue is the only one I would EVER leave my dogs WITH!!! You can feel very comfortable about using her---she will care for your dog and train it well. If it can be done, Sue can do it---Catherine too
Yvonne is AWESOME !!! We adopted 2 shelter dogs and found Yvonne to help us understand them. We have had 4 other dogs, went through training with all of them but we have learned so much more from Yvonne!! We HIGHLY recommend her she knows her stuff !!!!
Jocelyn was great with my pups. I have one dog that is on medication and special diet, she handled that with no problems. She would come over and take care of them through out the day and texted me updates and cute photos. It was very reassuring to know they we happy and enjoying snuggles with her.
I am thrilled with the progress Canine Solutions Training Services has made thus far with my dog, Daisy. I have a training session today, (I think it is more for me than the dog) I cant wait to see her progress! They are teaching me the tools I need to be my dogs handler. I am hoping to spend many more months (years) training with them. They have inspired me to work hard to bring out the best in my dog and make her a solid canine citizen and to be the best owner I can be for my dog. Thank you all for what you have done so far!
We adopted our puppy, Bailey, in May 2011 at 3 months old and immediately started looking for a trainer. What I loved most about Zen Dog training is that they offer in home one-on-one training unlike some other places I had looked into. They also offered night/weekend training which was exactly what we needed. Also, the initial phone consultation was a great preview of what to expect. We signed up for the Perfect Pup package that gave us two visits lasting 2 hours each. Definitely worth it! We had Nayiri who was an absolute joy to work with. You could tell she had a great love for dogs! As soon as she entered our home and Bailey raced to 'greet' (i.e. jump on) her she was in training mode yet was still able to do the initial meet/greet with us. Nayiri took the time to listen to our specific concerns as well as tell us about common puppy issues and what to expect since this was the first time either of us had a dog under the age of 1. Nayiri showed us fun ways to teach Bailey common commands and how to advance once he got the hang of it. It was great that there wasn't a cookie cutter program; everything was tailored to what we wanted to achieve. We received great training material as a reminder once she left as well as access to their online site with an abundance of training videos and info for all stages of a dogs life. Nayiri was extremely flexible in terms of setting up the follow up appointment which we had to reschedule on our end a couple of times due to work conflicts. Naryiri was available through email for any follow up questions/concerns we had and responded quickly with advice which was helpful as we continued our training. The follow up meeting was great. We were able to discuss all the things that had happened with training and what we still needed to work on. Nayiri also gave suggestions on some next steps she thought Bailey was ready for. We recommend her to anyone who would like to train their dog and will definitely keep her info handy just in case we feel the need for additional training in the future. We definitely lucked out finding this service!
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.
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.
Hello there! My name is Alyssa and I am a professional dog trainer. I currently work at a dog training facility. At this facility I train and rehabilitate dogs. I have trained dogs with all different temperaments and behavior issues (fear aggression, dog aggression, agression towards humans, separation anxiety). That being said, no dog is too much for me! Other than my work life, I love to hangout with my pup and go for hikes. I am currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at my college and hope that one day I can work for a federal agency or with the police K-9 unit. With my services, I will be able to do obedience training for an hour a day with your pup as I am caring for him/her. Your dog will also experience some awesome hiking trips! If you would like to know more about me or my services, just ask! I have plenty of references from clients that I would be happy to provide!
I've grownup around dogs all my life. I have done anything from training to walking. I offer big dogs to small dogs.
I am highly trained, specifically in animal behavior and psychology. I have deep love for animals. I've worked as a volunteer at the animal shelter where among other responsibilities was taking dogs for day long hikes on the mountain trails.
I have multiple HIGH IN TRIAL awards in obedience and rally and multiple BEST IN SHOW & BEST IN SPECIALTY SHOW awards. I have bred and1or owned more than 70 champions.
We do working and training dogs in protection, detection, obedience, agility, and many more. We cater all dog breeds, and we don't do BSL here.
I provide services in dog training: basic manners, behavior modification, on- and off-leash obedience, remote collar training, private lessons, boarding and training.
Dog and people training that's focused on helping families have a balanced dog. This type of instruction works well for the majority of owners who want a family dog, not a ribbon in obedience. Manners, some "environmental obedience", and very few bad habits are what most of us want from our four-legged friends.
I train dogs. I can clean them, teach them tricks, and do more. I can also teach them to love kids.
Dogs, like humans, are simple creatures and only wish to fully realize their "dogness."
With over 15 years of experience, we carefully select and train the world's finest protection dogs. Our dogs are ready to be a loving part of your family. We also offer protection training for dogs not purchased through us.
