About

We took 5 lessons with Jay for our 4 month old female labradoodle. Since my dog will be about 50 – 60lbs when she is an adult and we have a child at home, a well-behaved dog is very important to us. We searched up online to look for a good reputation dog trainer and came up Jay. My husband spent almost an hour to talk with Jay over the phone. He was very impressed on his knowledge of the dog training techniques so we made an appointment for the 1st lesson in our house. During the 1st lesson, he tried to understand the personality of the dog and identify the issues that the dog has. He is an experienced dog trainer and they built up a bonding really quickly. Over the next 4 lessons, he taught my dog the commands of sit, down, stay, paw, take it/leave it, and drop it in tug war. What we need to do is to reinforcement these commands every day. He also taught us some basic knowledge of how to take care of the dog, how to walk the dog properly and how to train the dog to fit in our schedule. He told us lots of tips how to build up the bonding with the dog so that we can handle the dog easier in our daily life. This is a MUST if you have a dog.

About

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

My dogs and I have been working with Francine for about 2 years, and it has been an excellent experience. Francine's knowledge is surpassed only by her ability to assess your dog and teach YOU how to assess your dog's behaviors; and fix them if necessary. She presents the perfect mix of hands on hands off training. I am extremely impressed with her expertise, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for superior dog training.

About

Tom is great! He has so much knowledge and experience with dog training. We are first time dog owners and Tom has helped us every step of the way. We could not have imagined this process going as smooth and easy as it has. We are convinced that Tom has played a huge role. His continued advice and suggestions are always welcomed and implemented at our home. Our 9month old puppy is so well behaved! Many people who meet him cannot believe how good he is and we attribute this training to Tom. We've learned to respects the dog's needs for boundaries and structure. Tom taught us to think like a dog and not like a human, allowing us to better communicate with our dog. Tom has become a member of our family as well. We highly recommend using him for any of your dog training needs.

I cannot give enough accolades to Dorice. When I was having problems training my puppy wheaten terrier, a few people, including our Vet recommended Dorice. She came to our home and worked with my husband and I and the puppy, of course, for a few hours and by the end of the session we saw amazing positive results. Dorice is the most energetic, upbeat person I know and look forward to our next sessions with her.

I am going to chime in on Michelle's (from 11th Hour Rescue) post on July 18, 2012. I am the alpha-mom from the lucky family (3 children 10 and under and a "never a second of issue" chocolate lab, Jasper) who adopted Bandit. Like Michelle, we immediately noticed Bandit's smile in looking over images online. We could not stop thinking about this adorable dog who's pictures and description of his progress from training. Now like any parent, the kid's safety comes first and foremost. I had the idea tha twe would never get a pitbull/mix due to the stigma and negative media in my household. However, we were intrigued with Bandit and decided to go take a look. Mind you, we are people who have NO experience whatsoever with training a dog, aside from watching the Dog Whisperer here and there. Jasper came as a rescue from the pound perfectly behaved. I don't want to lie, we were quite nervous and also initially not a fan of the idea of an e-collar, especially since we were not the most confident of people who thought we could continue training a dog. Jacqueline Zinetti's balanced approach of consummate professionalism, skillful and user-friendly training,and contagious passion for helping a special dog be successful with a family. I truly appreciated her patience for us as laypeople as she build's into her thorough training of us to make mistakes and to help build our confidence. Believe me, one half-hour with Jaqueline and Off-Leash K9 Training, you recognize the top-notch training your dog AND you are receiving. Bandit has been with us about a month now and we are mutually loving the bond we are creating. He is awesome with the kids and did very well with transitioning with Jasper. We are seeing his progress with his transition despite our mistakes that we have made. There have been some regression, however these are moments that we use to continue to practice and train using the tools that Jac With Off-Leash K9 Trainer, Jacqueline there, we are confident that we will

About

Positive reinforcement techniques are applied in WoofGang's training methodology. Reward-based training is a non-aversive and effective way of learning for dogs. It facilitates the acquiring of new behavior without causing anxiety or fear. Behavior specialist and trainer Laura Garber, CPDT-KA, strongly believes in strengthening the bond between companion animal and human. For this reason, she views training as an exercise in building relationship, instead of obedience. Such an approach promises better symbiosis and understanding within our family packs.
