About

My wife and I recently got married and when we moved in together her dog (a Shiba Inu) which had issues before that hadn't been addressed blew up. He challenged me for dominance with a full blown teeth bared attack. At that point we realized that the previous trainers who had worked with the dog and my wife just didn't have a clue how to work with her dog. We realized we needed to do some really serious research before choosing our next and last trainer. The dog had attacked multiple times in the recent history and this was going to be his last chance. As you can imagine my wife didn't want to give him up so it was imperative that we found the best trainer out there so if we had to give him up we would feel comfortable knowing we did absolutely everything possible. After exhaustive research, we decided on Janice as the best option. The biggest reason we chose her was she told us she was NOT going to train our dog, she was going to train US. That made the most sense for us and we knew it would pay off regardless of what happened with our current dog because we would be better prepared for our next dog. Well, we didn't (and don't) have to worry, because of Janice our dog is a model dog! The things that she taught us about how to treat our dog have completely transformed our dog into a completely different and at peace dog. We really can't thank her enough for all her assistance and for always being available (to this day if we call her!) to us. Janice, you really are amazing!!! We really can't thank you enough but, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! As a side note, the things that Janice taught us are also going to be extremely helpful when we have children as far as how to treat them. The patience, rules, etc all will help us tremendously with how ever many children we have.

About

I'd highly recommend this trainer to anyone and will! My family rescued a 4 month old mix-breed puppy from a shelter and we needed serious help. After thinking that we might have made a mistake and adopted a puppy that was too aggressive for our family, we have learned how to handle our puppy and look forward to enjoying her for many years to come. I cannot express the value of the training that was provided. Regardless of your level of experience with dog training, there was a level of skill provided that by far exceeded my expectations. Our puppy wasn’t just trained, we were also trained how to understand, think like, and know what was needed from us from our dog’s perspective. Our understanding is different now and our approach is so much better. Our dog is so much better behaved and it is absolutely amazing what has been accomplished in such a short time. The training methods utilized are simple to understand and best of all...THEY REALLY WORK!!! I bought eBooks, eVideos, watched countless videos, and read online materials...nothing comes close! I spoke to other dog trainers and was not about to waste money on a bunch of gimmicks that are really designed to take your money and leave you in need of more help down the road. This trainer is skilled and is worth every penny!!! If you want real results, then this is the trainer that you will not regret using!!! I'd give this trainer 10 stars if allowed!!! You will be amazed at the change in your dog and confidence you will feel as the dog’s owner (and new trainer). My puppy went from barely answering to her name to now doing tricks on command, was mostly confined to a small area in the living room to play to playing on the entire first floor, etc. My family is happier and so is my puppy!!! If you want real results, then I recommend this trainer above any other!!! +100% satisfied!!!

About

I provide in home training and as a Professional Dog Trainer who attended Animal Behavior College I am Certified by a reputable entity. completed and follows a specific philosophy of training, verses a 90 hour "graduate" of a big box pet store. I utilize critical thinking skills coupled with my background in Education I formulate the best plan of action possible within the guidelines of dog breed, background, and family dynamics; As a firm believer in rescue verses purchase my goal is to keep all dogs in their "forever homes" The shelters are full of dogs rejected for behaviors that their families could not handle or dogs that were chosen without regard to family lifestyle or ability to really care for that breed. I aim to help dogs and their pet parents and I just love dogs more than anything else!

About

I have over 20 years of experience in dog obedience training, both private consultations and classroom setting. Also offering pet sitting and daily dog walking. I personally have shown and titled my own Border Collies in obedience. My method of training has always been a positive method. I take pride in my work ethic. Educating owners to have a better understanding of their canine's, is the first step to a happy family. I have been very lucky both my occupations have been a passion. I was a nurse for twenty-four years, which was most fulfilling and rewarding. I now have the pleasure of working and enjoying these wonderful beings our dogs. My goal is to keep as many dogs as possible from being surrender to shelters. The more help in training and teaching people to understanding their dog, the more likely we can keep the dog out of the shelters. It is so very rewarding to have the opportunity to be somewhat instrumental with teaching the joy of having a well behaved extended family member. I personally can't imagine life without a best friend.

About

When a customer decides to use our services, we encourage them to come to our place and see our set up and how the dogs behave in our care. We think that all trainers should demonstrate their results for potential customers to assure them that they are able to train their dog as well. If you come to us with a barking dog, no one will bark back because we have shown them that they can relax because we are in charge and we can show you the same for your dog. Training is about having the proper body language. Imagine how you would communicate with humans if you didn't have language. We started out doing this by training our dogs as mobility assistance. We would watch the body language of our own dogs day in and day out and we learned so much from it. Now we get to watch it every day with countless different dogs and the body language is always consistent. Come meet with us for a free consultation and we can show you the steps to being your dogs best friend and his/her guiding light. I love making dogs into the best dog that they can be for their family. It is very rewarding to make people and dogs happy because of everything that the dog accomplished with us. Showing peiple how we handle dogs often helps people to learn to relax and slow down in their own lives. Our desire is to make people happier and calmer by showing them how to make their dogs happier and calmer.

About

CJ is a great dog-trainer/human-teacher, and a very good deal. She helped us better understand how to develop our relationship with our dog, gave us a number of fun ways to play games that simultaneously helped our dog better understand HOW to learn (and that learning itself is a fun game), and left us with lots of good ideas for how to continue on our own. CJ is very flexible in finding a mutually good time to meet. She brings a lot of experience to her work. She pushed the humans in the family to become more comfortable with our dog's unique personality while also making us feel good about what we are able to do. When we became busy and didn't schedule follow-up meetings, she gently (professionally) prodded us to make sure we took advantage of the full five sessions we had pre-paid for. She was generous with each session's time, and enjoyed working with us and our dog. Unlike dog training classes we've attended with dogs in the past, which are impersonal and which do not necessarily help you figure out what to do when the dog does not respond right away, CJ's private sessions focus on the unique talents and dispositions of the dog in the family, as well as how to break training into small enough parts so that the dog can succeed. We highly recommend her.

About

We are extremely pleased that we selected Emma. She is a wonderful person and absolutely knows what to do. Our puppy was born to a street dog in Puerto Rico and when we adopted her, she did not have the best habits. Emma has taught us what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Our Sabrina is learning quickly and we employ what Emma has taught us and it never fails. She is flexible with scheduling and is always on time. You cannot do better than hiring Emma! Sabrina sits on command, heels when walking and sits at every street intersection. There is more to be done but thus far, it has been a rewarding and very useful training period.

About

Excellent service! Reliable, dependable, accomadating. My dogs are very well cared for, they get excited to go for their walks, I recommend no place like home pet sitting and dog walking. I have been using their service since may 2011. Best decision ever. I work long hours and Nancy walks them daily, my pug has lost weight and is much healthier, happier and better behaved.
