I have the trainers with other dogs come in three times a week for two months and didn’t come close to getting the results that I got with Jay after five visits. He was prompt courteous and very patient with not only the dog but with me as well. I have a two-year-old daughter who Jay was absolutely fantastic with and integrated her into the training with the dog. If you care about you dog and want the best training possible cal Jay
If you are looking for an exceptional dog trainer than Sal is your guy! He was so kind, very patient and helped guide our dog as well as my family with real positive steps toward learning basic commands and understanding our dogs needs as well Sal loves dogs and his knowledge of all dogs was Phenomenal! I am looking forward to hiring him again! You will not be disappointed with this gentle giant! Sal 's fee is extremely affordable and is the best money I have ever spent. In addition our puppy Rocco loved him .
Excellent dog/people trainer! It is obvious that Mary Jean loves what she does.
So far Ariana is great! In one lesson she was able to teach me how to walk with my two 50+ pounds boys. I am excited to see what she will be able to do about the aggression in my puppy.
Anna really helped me with my 3 dogs, especially my fearful dog. I was very impressed she's the third trainer I have had. Anna is the only one able to show and explain to me what to do. I have noticed a difference in my dog's aggression in just a few hours. I know it will take practice but I have confidence now.
Joan got down to business in a warm and caring way. She worked well with my dog, my daughter and I giving us successful tips on training and coaching.
My father is quite possible the worst dog trainer there is. In came Dr. J and within MINUTES had his dog walking obediently at his side! This is a bird dog that is used to ranging out far and wide. Amazing! Not only good results but a FUN experience with a constant patter of enjoyable jokes. Dr. J seems to have a sixth sense about animals. Highly recommended!
Ken was my first experience with professional dog training. I'm Amazed! Simple applicable success from the very first session. Positive reinforcement and strategies for overcoming frustration (more for the humans than the puppies) transformed the behavior of our Wilson - a rescue with a little bit of shyness inside a large body. Ken's guidance and constant reassurance gave me confidence and helped Wilson transfer energy into play resulting in a puppy who is undercontrol and safe in any environment.
Anna was great from the start—immediately responded to my initial inquiry and had wonderful followup, but most importantly, she's just a wonderful dog trainer. Our 11-month-old terrier responded so well to here, and she was great in giving us the knowledge of how our puppy thinks, which allows us to be better at understanding our dog.
Steve has been working with Bentley and myself, for a couple weeks. But, this weekend Steve helped us with some issues of aggression towards my other dog Chuck. I believe with Steves advise and help we are heading in a great direction to end this problem, as a family.
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.
The best dog trainer in the world. Watch out Cesar Milan. Alice Went above and bet on with Training my new pup
Sean Ryan at City Wolves provided board-and-train services for my six year old dog, who had aggression and other social issues. I couldn't be happier with the results. Sean worked magic with the dog while she was with him and then followed up with thorough, specific strategies for me to work on when she came home. The transformation has been amazing. And even after the training was done, Sean has been readily available to answer any questions and address any residual issues I might be having.
We have tried many dog trainers with many different techniques over the 35 years of having dogs. None came anywhere close to the effectiveness of Rick's handling of our golden doodle. We were on the verge of giving our dog away when we first met Rick. After a reasonable number of sessions, he transformed him into a completely different and oh so delightful pet. And the neat thing about Rick's techniques, our dog showed improvement after the very first session and just continued to get better as we went through the winter. Rick truly worked magic.
Although my puppy and I had initial training at a storefront situation, I didn't feel that I had a good knowledge of how to help my cockapoo puppy to be a well-behaved and happy dog. Margaret has given us very specific tasks to obtain the right behavior. She is helping me to think like a dog so I can see how my behaviors are interpreted by my puppy. Each hour is full of hands on instruction with plenty of fun for my puppy and me. She is very encouraging and is a delightful person. We have worked on sit, stay, down, wait, hush (for barking) and most importantly to come when called in a situation where my puppy would rather chase that bunny or squirrel. I highly recommend her as a talented and professional dog trainer.
Mr. Stone is extremely professional and spent a lot of time with me wallking me through the process of what it would take to get my dog trained with the skills I require
Kristin was amazing, so patient,and so knowledgeable . She was so helpful,and listened to all of my questions and concerns about my puppy,including her separation issues. She gave me so many helpful suggestions,and that was just from our phone conversation! I can't wait to meet her. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dog trainer!
We tried two other dog trainers before we came across Chelsea, and after speaking with her on the phone I immediately knew something was different about her, in the best possible way. She talked with us about focusing on what was causing our little guy to act out in the ways he had been, what we could and couldn't reasonably expect (this one was huge, and took a bit of vital human training on our part) and took the time to start us out with a strong foundation using techniques that worked—and that we were comfortable with—to create a lasting change in our rescue dog. You can tell Chelsea loves what she does and that she positively adores dogs and their people, too. Her approach is so affective because she treats dog psychology the same way the best specialists approach human psychology: by addressing the source of the behavior that causes the symptoms, and taking each dog's personality into account. At the same time, her methods seem to work magnificently across the board. She is brilliant, her methods are affective, she is highly professional but also extremely friendly and approachable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to treat problematic behaviors in their beloved rescue dogs, but in any dog, really—it just takes a special person to have the knowledge and patience to work with a dog who has trauma they can never communicate with words.
He really showed me some great tricks for training my dog and was always a pleasure to work with.
Very professional and very fast to respond and would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing dog trainer.
Shirley and the staff of Dog Silly Suites and Services have been dog sitting for me for over 3 years. Whether I anticipate a long day at work or I need to go on a business trip, I am so happy to know that someone that my dogs and I trust is going to take care of them. Shirley has been with me as I welcomed 2 new dogs into the family over the past 3 years and has helped with issues from house breaking to jumping on people. You get an extra bonus with Shirley because she is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer so she understands how to work with dogs from the training angle as well. My dogs and I love the staff of Dog Silly! I honestly don't know what I would do without them!! I am more than willing to be contacted as a reference.
