Jay was great with my dog, Zooey! He was able to teach her different tasks and explain to me what exactly he was doing (and also gave written explanations). He was always on time and would often give us a little extra time during sessions. Since the training Zooey has been listening more to myself and my family - thank you so much for the excellent training!
Sal is awesome! he is a dog whisperer. after only one training session my pup was already improving. he gave me advice on how to pick better quality food/treats for my furry friends, which was really helpful. he really has so much love and knowledge that made working with him so pleasant. another thing that i loved is that he encourages positive, happy training that allows you to bond even more with your pup. i noticed how much even my pup loved him, definitely recommended!!
Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!
Real professionals and well educated in training your dog! I would recommend to anyone.
Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.
Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!
Dr. J has a very different approach to dog training. It works because the dog understands completely what is expected. We accomplished in two sessions what I could not with any of my dogs over the years. The crazy barking is a thing of the past and only appropriate bark is heard. I can walk my 7 month old Maltese and 11 year old Yorkie without a leash. Anyone who has a pet should consider having Dr. J visit. You will not only have well behaved pets, but in my opinion, a better relationship.
I have a 12 week old French Bulldog pup that I have had now for 3 weeks. I did not know where to start in regards to training and Karin definitely gave my husband and I a good foundation to begin and a lot of pointers. She took her time with us and our puppy. We felt very comfortable having her in our home. I highly recommend her.
Jenn, the owner , I so impressive. I needed advice on care and training of my puppy. Her suggestions were practical, realistic and they are working. Jenn is professional, bright and fun to work with.
Jessica has been instrumental in helping us transition to our new life as dog owners! She is super competent/ experienced with dogs, training and dog behavior/ psychology. She is also super reliable, trustworthy and kind. I couldn’t recommend her more.
Sean Ryan is quite simply, the best of the best. He is honest, straight forward, supportive, and encouraging. The investment in training with City Wolves is priceless. When I sent my rescue dog Levon to training he was nervous and fearful to a debilitating level. He was great with people, great with dogs, but absolutely horrible with modern technology. The sound of a car door shutting would send him scrambling for the hills and he was afraid to walk on any kind of indoor flooring. The entire process was exceptional, Sean kept me posted on all of his progress and provided status updates constantly. After four weeks in the Board & Train program, Levon was a completely different dog. Sean gave him a base level of confidence which I could simply never have provided him with. His approach with dogs is very intelligent, calm and respectful. He provided me with the tools to work together and communicate with Levon. I'm confident that his board and train program is the absolute best offered in our area. Structured, safe, and just an amazing environment for a dog to be in when they aren't at home. Sean continues to provide support, answer questions and genuinely shows that he cares long after the training session is complete.
Alice is the real deal! During our first meeting, we discussed all the members of the household (pets & humans), from diets, behavior, issues, schedules, to activities, grooming, and much more. We were able to resolve basic commands and for the first time, we were able to master the walk with both pets, all during the first visit. Needless to say, I booked more sessions. I can't wait to see the improvements we will make as a pack over the next few weeks! Thank you, Alice & RufF lOve dOg traiNIng :) From Dylan, Omie and their newly trained (very happy) humans. xoxo
Mike is great to work with! I've come to expect that he will be prepared with an individual, and always evoling, training plan catered to my specific growth. It's clear he is passionate about being a trainer and about seeing results in his clients. He would no doubt be a great fit for anyone looking to work with a personal trainer.
Margaret, the trainer and owner, is doing a great job training both Sluggo and me. We are bonding in understanding each other. Much fun!
Josh is an amazing trainer and very dedicated. He was able to try many different methods of training when one didn't work for our dog.
Extremely professional and knowledgable. We saw immediate results and will be working with this trainer long term. Highly recommend!
Truly fantastic and unique dog training experience. Chelsea had so much patience and genuine interest as I spoke with her (endlessly, on multiple occasions) about all of my concerns about my 11-year old adopted Shiba mix who grew up as a street dog in China. Gingko has not been an easy dog for me to deal with, but Chelsea has helped me not only manage but understand her barking and snapping behaviors. She's not just interested in obedience - she wants to help create a symbiotic relationship between you and your dog, so that each of you are happy and safe. I always imagined training to be just lots of clicker-treat-clicker-treat stuff (doesn't work with Gingko, who thinks treats are a trap). But Chelsea's full of clever, practical, and easy solutions that prevent unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. Can't recommend her highly enough.
Roxanne did a phenomenal job of working with my family's new puppy. Since we also have a young daughter, it was critical that Pippa would learn basic training as well as overcome some developing issues with resource guarding. Roxanne was compassionate, kind, responsive and encouraging through this whole process. Pippa came home well trained and happy. I never had a moment's doubt that she was getting not just training, but also love and kindness. I consider Roxanne a friend and a great resource. I highly recommend her!
Gus gave us excellent advice and educated us so that we better understand our dog's behavior. Our rotties responded very well to him and his training techniques and we are continuing to work on training them ourselves. I am more confident now, that we can do this! Thank you Gus!
Adam is a really nice guy who clearly loves dogs and enjoys working with them. He's a down to earth guy. The man knows what hes doing, he mde a friend in our German Pinscher "Noble" in short order. Addm is extremely knowledgeable and patient in his the training field. Looking forward to continue working / training Nible with him. I would very highly recommend him nd his services for any dog training needs.
Working with Faryn was great. Fenway loved her and listened! She did well at training not only the dog but my husband and me!!! She was clear on her instructions, consistent and helped Fenway understand the basic commands. Faryn is very professional and at the same time is warm and engaging. Her methods for training Fenway worked and her love of animals was very obvious. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Faryn!!!
