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.

About

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.

About

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

Kat's K9 Cadets offers a variety of services, including professional one-on-one dog training lessons. We have been working with animals since 1991. When we train your dog, we pride ourselves in making training a fun experience. I offer 2 weeks of training. No two dogs are the same, so each training session is tailored to your individual pet's needs. I come to your house where the problems are and evaluate the situation. I like to get to know you and your dog on a personal level. I make a lifetime commitment to you and your canine's life. I know how important your dog is to you and your family and that is why having a dog in your life should provide you with great joy and companionship, not extra burden or an endless source of frustration as is so often the case. These are what I personally consider to be crucial, and always strive for when training dogs: - To raise a well-respected canine citizen. I want happy, involved, outgoing dogs who are valued and trusted members of the community. - To build a genuinely strong owner-dog relationship based on trust, cooperation and well-defined roles. - To have confidence in and control of my dogs in any situation, including around kids and other animals. - To work with my dog's natural drives and instincts, not against them. Absolutely no cruelty or harsh "old school" dog training techniques. I certainly don't believe you have to "break a dog's spirit" in the training. Pet sitting: We will also pet sit cats, ferrets, birds... any animal you have, we will take care of them. If you're like us, your pets have become family members. When you can't be home for them, whether because of work, vacation or other obligations, you want them taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. That's exactly what we give them because we love pets! We offer a multitude of services for a variety of pets. We can also handle various home services, which by making it appear that your house is occupied, can be a crime deterrent. Choose the schedule and services you want and we'll do the rest.

We work on puppy training, as well as do problem solving: barking, jumping, digging, chewing, house training, separation anxiety, aggression, Socialization and more. These classes are for young dogs or older dogs with little or no training. Each class will be tailored to you and your individual pet's needs. No previous training is necessary at all. We come to you so you don't have to stress your dog out. Dog training groundwork: In the world of dog training, simple things can make or break a dog. Dogs are just like humans, they feel pain and sadness, and they know when they are being punished and praised. In my opinion, to have a great relationship between the human and the dog there have to be some ground level rules. These rules make up the groundwork for all my own techniques of dog training. These are not listed in any order of importance, as they are all equally important to the bond of dog and the owner: Never hit or cause any pain to a dog. Always end a training session on a positive note. Be consistent with the dog as this makes the dog respect you as a leader. Contact us today to set up your appointment. First consultation is free!
