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!
My 3 year old German Shepherd started having some behavior issues when he started sensing that I was pregnant. Anna was very sweet and professional, she knew exactly why he was suddenly nervous around me and gave me some tips to help him with this transition. After day 1 of trying her advice, things already started improving. Even after she leaves your house, she checks in to see how you and your dog are doing and always answers any questions. Anna is affordable and truly cares about helping her clients and their pets.
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.
Karin has been a tremec help with our two mini Australian shepherds! She is always available if you have any questions and explains everything thoroughly.
Deborah was Great! Exercising my 2 Year Old German Shepherd with her Bicycle. Thanks!
We have employed several trainers. Wish we had found Pack in Harmony first!
I found Alice on-line and asked her to come and help with my dog, Maximus. He was a 3 month old German Shepherd that was pretty much out of control. He would always pull at the leash, bite ankles, wouldn't listen to any commands...etc. After just one private lesson with her, my dogs behavior changes drastically. She showed my wife and I ways to keep Maxi in check to make sure he grew into a smart, loyal and obedient dog. Max is now about 6 months old and has very few behavioral issues (still just a stubborn and playful pup) With her help, the problems we had before she came through my door are nowhere to be seen. Thank you Alice!
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!
My family's experience with the Dog Tamer was amazing. I called Tom when my German Sheppherd was about 10mos, in that conversation almost in tear's I told Tom I may have to get rid of her she just was a handful. I had tried another trainer I had bought every training device nothing was working she was jumpy, nippy and severely energetic. Tom had said let me come a few times and I guarantee you'll see a difference. Well within 1 session Bacci was a different dog, we did 3 additional sessions and each time he left i would just say wow how does he do that. Staying on top of Bacci keeping up with all Tom taught us has made it possible to keep her and can't imagine not having her now. Thank You Tom!
Lindsey has worked with my 2 German shepards on many occasions over the last 5 years. She understands dogs, handles them with care and compassion while also being firm and consistent. She trains the people pretty well also! She has my highest reccomendation as one of my dogs is very challanging. She is excellent with him.
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.
Emily is a great trainer. She has control of her classes and the dogs just adore her. My shepherd is quite a handful and she has really helped bring her around.
Melissa was amazing. She was patient with us and our German Shepherd. You can tell she really cares about her four legged clients. I would recommend Melissa to anyone. In fact, I already have :)
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!!
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
Shipra is responsible and professional. She came for a meet and greet before scheduling walks and spent time to get to know my dogs ( German Shepherd mixes) . It was good to see that she is comfortable walking big dogs. She arrives on time to walk and sends updates after the walk. My dogs are comfortable and happy to walk with her!!!
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.
