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.
We had a wonderful experience with Alpha dog trainer.She has been very helpful with our puppies
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
Very well mannered and very comfortable to be around. If anyone is looking for a dog trainer/sitter/walker then she is your lady.
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 is a fantastic dog and people trainer! I have learned so much volunteering with Ashley at a local animal shelter. The dogs we work with at the shelter are a wide range of age, breed, and temperament. Ashley does a great job with all of the dogs at their individual level, whether it be with a solid start at the basics or working on problem behaviors such as impulse control, fearfulness, or pulling on the leash. While helping the dogs, she also educates other volunteers about various dog behaviors and what the dogs are communicating. She is very approachable and easy to talk with. Every session is as much about teaching the people as it is about teaching the dogs.
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!
Voted best dog trainer in concord for a reason. She Seems to always have a solution to help you get your dog to where they need to be. And never would put you or your dog in a situation that you couldn't handle. She constantly attends seminars to keep herself up to date with the latest information. And she puts all others before herself. Not only is her business highly professional and a safe place to learn, he staff is wonderful and she is the kindest person I know.
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.
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!!!
I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.
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.
