Jay was great with my dog, Zooey! He was able to teach her different tasks and explain to me what exactly he was doing (and also gave written explanations). He was always on time and would often give us a little extra time during sessions. Since the training Zooey has been listening more to myself and my family - thank you so much for the excellent training!
Sal is awesome! he is a dog whisperer. after only one training session my pup was already improving. he gave me advice on how to pick better quality food/treats for my furry friends, which was really helpful. he really has so much love and knowledge that made working with him so pleasant. another thing that i loved is that he encourages positive, happy training that allows you to bond even more with your pup. i noticed how much even my pup loved him, definitely recommended!!
Real professionals and well educated in training your dog! I would recommend to anyone.
Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!
Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.
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!
Dr. J has a very different approach to dog training. It works because the dog understands completely what is expected. We accomplished in two sessions what I could not with any of my dogs over the years. The crazy barking is a thing of the past and only appropriate bark is heard. I can walk my 7 month old Maltese and 11 year old Yorkie without a leash. Anyone who has a pet should consider having Dr. J visit. You will not only have well behaved pets, but in my opinion, a better relationship.
Marie said it all in her review of Max but I can add that Anna understands dogs and how they think extremely well but will not waste time either psychoanalyzing nor anthropomorphizing your dog-- instead she will get down to the task of really training him and training you to continue on that path. Our dog, Max is a very trainable dog but with Anna I realized that whatever this training may be, it HAS to be reinforced on a daily basis. This is obvious to those who know about training but something that is good to remind oneself of regardless! We are really happy with the results.
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.
Very nice and seems like she knows a lot about dog training!
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 have what I call a wild child less than a year old rescue, Murphy. With Nancys guidance and patience with both me and Murphy in only three visits I have seen wonderful growth and improvement in him. She has great understanding of dogs, and his breed in particular, and guides me in the best way to manage his intelligence and his high energy. It is my hope to have a wonderful dog and friend whom I can enjoy and who will enjoy me. With Nancys help, we are definitely moving in that direction. Without hesitation, I would recommend Nancy Pindilli to anyone who is seeking help in training their dog.
I have two dogs, a fox hound and a weimeraner. The two dogs would violently fight with each other, which was very scarey indeed. The weimeraner was impossible for me to walk on the leash and he had separation anxiety. Rick assessed these issues right away! Within the first session, I was able to handle walking my dog, with pleasure. Then he worked on the aggression issue and it's been a year since the training and there has not been one fight between them. Also, the weimeraner is able to spend extended periods of time alone without issue now. If you are looking for a trainer, Rick is, without question, the best out there.
Margaret, the trainer and owner, is doing a great job training both Sluggo and me. We are bonding in understanding each other. Much fun!
The best way for me to describe my experience with Bruce Stone and Interdyne International K-9 would be to say that I feel like I hit the dog training lottery. I was recommended by a friend, but for anyone out there that really wants to see how well behaved their dog has the capacity to be, he IS the answer. He is a phenomenal teacher, extremely knowledgeable and absolutely a true professional in every respect. His always prepared, straightforward, and confident approach immediately gives you the feeling that you and your dog are both in extremely competent hands. It was some of the best money I've ever spent.
The perfect help we needed to train frankie... put us on the right track...we couldn't be happier
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.
Roxanne did a phenomenal job of working with my family's new puppy. Since we also have a young daughter, it was critical that Pippa would learn basic training as well as overcome some developing issues with resource guarding. Roxanne was compassionate, kind, responsive and encouraging through this whole process. Pippa came home well trained and happy. I never had a moment's doubt that she was getting not just training, but also love and kindness. I consider Roxanne a friend and a great resource. I highly recommend her!
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 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.
I would highly recommend Howie for puppy and dog training, he is educated and knows exactly what he is doing. In addition he is clearly very passionate and loves what he does. Within the first session we had already made progress and learned what we were doing wrong and what we were doing right. We are so thankful for Howie and his help!
