Our dog loves Jay! Jay has been great to work with, very flexible with our odd work hours, and knowledgeable about everything from obedience training to vet recommendations and more. We would definitely recommend him!
Sal was extremely helpful with getting me and my fiance started with some basic obedience training for our 9 month old pitbull mix rescue. He also helped me to understand what she is thinking and what she needs. A lot of people have a mindset that all dogs that are pitbull or a mix of them are aggressive nasty dogs. Not true. But I do recognize fears of others and wanted to tackle having her on the road to understanding basic commands such as no jumping up on people which can be scary for them. I feel it was the best decision to have our dog Summer start off with a private training session first because I wanted minimal distractions of a class. I would encourage that. It will take a lot of work and discipline on our end, but we know Summer will benefit from it. Thank you Sal for your help.
Our trainer , Caitlin was so impressive with her knowledge on dog psychology, she made us feel so comfortable, always being encouraging , positive and patient. We never felt judged in the least , she was so cool and down to earth, exactly what we needed , I would highly recommend them to anyone hesitating getting a trainer for fear of feeling judged, I'm so happy we made the commitment, it made a world of difference with basic obedience in our puppy and 6 yr old beagle loved it as well!
Ariana is wonderful! She very skilled and taught us a lot about puppy and obedience training. I highly recommend her!
Our new rescue pup Roxie needed basic obedience training and we discovered Suzanne Rodda while searching the internet for local dog trainers. Suzanne knows her stuff ! We have worked with her over the last month and a half and the difference in Roxie is obvious. Suzanne's approach is to not only train your dog, but to train YOU to work with your dog as well. It's a win win combination. We had a few challenges facing us along the way BUT Suzanne's flexibility and commitment to us made working with her easy and a pleasure. She has our recommendation as an excellent trainer.
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!
Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He provided the necessary tools and tips for training our dog. Within a few sessions our dog 'mastered' the commands. Key to success which Andrew stresses is working with your dog on a continued basis. Training is done with all family members. I'm truly grateful for your services Andrew. Looking forward to working with you again. Much Thanks!
Anna was professional, understanding, and genuinely concerned with helping my dog. She contacted me immediately to begin working on a personalized plan. She is definitely a great choice for private dog training!
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 has been helping us with our Olde English Bulldog named Wilson. We adopted Wilson through a rescue group and he needed help with leash walking, obedience training and separation anxiety. Sean has been a fantastic trainer and resource for my husband and I. We are brand new dog owners and Sean is always available to help us with all of our questions and concerns. He is always emailing/texting us to check in and see Wilson's progress. Wilson has drastically changed since we first got him. His change was pretty much instant after his first meeting with Sean. Wilson still needs a bit of help, but Sean is with us every step of the way. His knowledge and experience and with dogs is unbelievable. Sean shows so much love for Wilson as if it were his own dog. I would highly recommend Sean for anyone that needs help with their pet.
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
I began working with Rick about a month ago to assist with my 18-month old pitbull, Petunia. Petunia had become aggressive to strangers (e.g., lunging, barking aggressively) when out in public and in the home and I was very much beside myself with how to address the behaviors. We had attempted obedience training at the pet store which did not correct the problem and she continued to worsen. People were afraid of my little pitty and I was developing a sense of hopelessness and resignation where I no longer even wanted to take her for walks and just figured we would have to live a limited lifestyle with her. As a last ditch effort to address Petunia's aggression, I had a consultation with Rick. He took an hour to meet with us to evaluate her. Petunia aggressively barked and lunged the whole time at Rick, but he thought she could be helped and we signed on for the ride. What a journey it has been. In less than a month, I have a restored sense of hope that Petunia can reach her full potential as a wonderful pet. With several training sessions and several trips to stay with Rick, Petunia is now heeling, is much more under control, is not barking aggressively or lunging on walks, and appears more calm and mellow overall. Rick has also taken much time to continuously meet and/or consult with me and my boyfriend on how to maintain the progress by teaching us how to handle Petunia on our own. We are still in the midst of Petunia's training, but I can see a complete 180 in her and am forever grateful that we made the decision to work with Rick. I highly recommend him without hesitation.
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.
We have not completed our puppy training yet but so far all is going well. Josh connected with my puppy right away as if she knew him already and responded to his reward-based training technique right away. He also gave us a lot of information on how to care for our puppy.
Debra is indeed very knowledgeable and efficient. She is dependable punctual and pleasant. Most of all her rates are very reasonable. We are very happy with the results with Lucy our year old pit, who listens to her (and us,) now like she is the most obedient dog in the world!
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.
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 wonderful trainer. He is also passionate and compassionate. He takes his time. Answers questions. Does not watch the clock. He knows his stuff and will treat your dog as if it is his own. Hire him with confidence. He has helped my dog Dixie with guarding issues and overall obedience. We maintain an open dialogue and he and I have been working together for well over a year. He succeeded where two other trainers before him failed. I cannot recommend him more highly.
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!!!
Well the job was consisting of behavioral problems with the dog and a little bit of obedience training. He was ver very understanding and patient with my dog he did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help with their dog.
