Janice came to my apartment in Manhattan to help with my German Shepherd who is having anxiety and agression issues. She gave me a few exercises to start with and within a few days I noticed a significant change in my dogs behavior. We have a long way to go but she is always available to help reinforce what she has taught me. Truely a Dog Whisperer. Julie

I contacted Jay to have him train 2 German Shepard pups which were 2 months old. From the moment I spoke with him I knew he cared about what he does. I signed up for the 5 week training. Jay was very good with the pups and knows exactly how to train them. I still have a lot of work to do with them but if it was not for Jay I would not be where I am today. I can have my 2 dogs and my 2 cats all in one room going about their daily living. I would highly recommend his training services.

We have had two training sessions with Ariana and our two four-month old Chow-Shepherd mixes, and we couldn't be happier with what she has taught the pups and us so far. The dogs adore her and respond well to her training techniques, and she clearly has a lot of in-depth knowledge and experience working with dogs and animals in general. I appreciate that she has a background in animal behavior, so she understands why they act the way they do and uses that to redirect their behavior. We look forward to many more sessions with her!

I find Andrew to be a knowledgeable, caring and sensitive to my dogs needs. He is very calm and intuitive as to the issues we are presently having with our 1 year old German Shepard. He explains why and our dog does the things he does, and how they can be improved with a gentle and caring approach.

John is very responsible, flexible and experienced with all kinds of dogs. My German Shepherd is typically nervous around other pets and strangers but John, immediately won him over. He is also very good about staying in touch and sending updates about how the walk went.

Ken seems to really know dogs. On his first visit he had at least 2 of my dogs listening and obeying (I have 2 Yorkies and a German Shepard). So far, I've been pleased.

Rick is the best trainer my family has ever worked with! He quickly helped us get our aggressive German Shepherd under control and we are continuing to work with him for off-leash training. He is professional, very knowledgeable and easy to work with. His follow-up is excellent and he is always available to answer questions or offer support and encouragement. Our entire family enjoys working with him, even the kids, and we have all become much more confident and capable dog handlers.

Margaret helped us with our 17 month old German Shepard, Bane. We wanted to focus on some key behaviors while incorporating general obedience. Over the past 7 weeks, we have experienced a great deal working with Margaret. She provided exceptional training for Bane and us as owners. We were so pleased with the progress we were seeing, we signed on for an additional 6 weeks of training. We will be sad when we no longer need her training. Margaret is incredibly knowledgeable about her dogs' behaviors and breeds and is 100% dedicated to her dogs!

Kristen is amazing. We were looking for a trainer who could help us with both training and therapy with a 3 year old samoyed who had suffered a carpal (wrist) injury. Kristen's experience as a breeder and trainer of working dogs combined with her experience as a vet tech made her the perfect choice and we're lucky we found her. Kristen primarily works with Australian Shepherds, breeding training and showing, but she is great with all breeds. Do you know she has shown dogs at Westminster? Our Samoyed Lulu had an accident a year ago and her carpal joint had become inflamed. Lulu's stomach doesn't tolerate NSAIDS, and Lulu was in pain and picking up some bad habits. Kristen took over and got everything on the right track right away. First, Kristen helped us find a course of treatment that helped relieve Lulu's worst symptoms without harming her stomach, stabilizing her for the next step. Then Kristen designed a course of training to simultaneously strengthen Lulu's muscles and joints. (Not just her wrist) to better support her weight, while also training Lulu for obedience. Kristen even managed conversations with a local vet to get the right combination of meds for Lulu including gabapenton. Kristen went far beyond what we expected. I can't think of a better resource for training, working with physical challenges , coordinating treatment and doing it all seamlessly. For any job, from basic puppy training to working dog training to complex cases like ours, you won't find anyone even close to Kristen. Thanks Kristen!

I contacted Leroy in hopes of getting help training our 7mo old german shepherd puppy. We just completed out first in-home session and I am very impressed! Leroy was able to show me how to communicate with our dog. She was like a whole different dog during the session. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. I am looking forward to our next session and having a better behaved dog!

I met with Anastasia twice and have scheduled my next lesson with her. She listened to who Maxx was and tailored his (our) lesson to suit his personality. I’ve had many dogs and trainers .. I currently have 3 dogs ( Doberman, German Shepherd and Maxx ... the one Anastasia is working with) .. and learned new things from Anastasia! Highly recommend!!

Catherine worked with my previous German Shepherd on loose leash walking and general manners towards other dogs. She helped improve his behavior tremendously with patience and knowledge. I will hire her again when I get a new dog.

Until now I thought I was a good pet owner, but that changed when I met Ana, she treats my German shepherd as her own, I believe that if he could make a choice he will left me for Ana, but seriously speaking she is punctual passionate and is overall a great companion for your dog

I have 2 dogs...a Doberman Pinscher (Lexi) and a German Shepherd(Nikita). Erica has worked with both of them and even after one lesson I saw results. Erica began working with Lexi when she was 3-4 months old. We did kindergarden, advanced training and a few agility classes. I went to another place for lessons once (a "gift" from someone) and it made me see how great Erica was! Erica gets to know your dog and tailors the lessons for them whether in a private lesson or group class. For example, she dealt with Lexi's disruptive class behavior by either using her as the example dog or giving her more advanced things to do. She was never angry or punitive. When Lexi became dog aggressive, Erica came and worked with us to help resolve the issue. With Nikita she worked on building her confidence and bringing out her intelligence. (Nikita is young and gets distracted easily) Erica discovers what makes your dog respond (food,,,toys..kisses) and utilizes that to motivate them. No cookie cutter training here! I have recommended Erica to several other people and everyone was pleased.

I had Andria as my dog trainer a few months ago when i got a getman shepherd puppy. In under 10 minutes my pup already knew how to sit. She was extremely knowledgable and friendly and i felt extremely comfortable asking her questions about anything i was unsure about. I would definitely recomend Andria if your looking to learn alot and watch your dog constantly progress.
