Sal is a warm hearted, gentle soul with a soothing voice & calming demeanor. He has a high level of expertise in training dogs. My wife & I are incredibly happy with his handling & training of our miniature poodle "Lucky". Sal was able to control our very rambunctious dog & calmed him very easily. Sal has a very natural ability to handle dogs. We are more than pleased with both him & his ability to train "Lucky". We highly recommend Sal & can truly say that you get way more than your money's worth with hiring him. He is a true professional & it's quite obvious that he enjoys his craft. You will be very happy with his level of expertise, training methods & overall effectiveness. Thank you Sal for being our "dog whisperer".
Sandy was amazing. My dog is not fond of strangers and before Sandy was leaving she was jumping in her arms and loving her. Her positive training is really working and I saw the difference in my dog within only a few hours. With her price and ability to travel to you there is no one out there that even comes remotely close in terms of a dog trainer. I will be recommending Sandy to EVERYONE that ever asks me about dog training.
I used Ruff Adjustments for my two Labradors over the the past 4 years for dog training. The owner Jay was the trainer. We were very pleased with His services. Jay is very loving and compassionate to the dogs and the dogs sure love him. Mine would get very excited when he arrived for each training session. I highly recommend Ruff Adjustments!
I have to say when I got my puppy he was so wild and I knew I needed to hire some help. I went to thumbtack and found Deb and it was the best thing I every did. She knew exactly what we needed to. She is so knowledgeable, great with our dog and also fun to be around. Would definitely recommend hiring Deb to anyone who needs dog training!
Real professionals and well educated in training your dog! I would recommend to anyone.
Delightful and easy going. Arrived on time and my dog, and I immediately liked her!
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!
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!
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!
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.
We are so happy to have met Debbie! She is an absolute pleasure. She helped me and my fiancee learn how to be the best owners to our new puppy Bodie. She truly cares for each animal she works with and wants the best for both owner and dog. Being a pretty anxious person, Debbie was so patient and helpful. She never left without us fully understanding what is expected and always made sure we could do it on our own. She is a fabulous trainer and person. She even gave us great tips for healthy homemade treats for our dog. I would recommend her 1000 times over to anyone who is looking for help with their dog, new or old.
Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.
Alice is Staten Island's dog whisperer! She is professional, knowledgeable and has an equaled passion for helping people with their dog training needs. Give her a try and you will not be disappointed!
Very nice and seems like she knows a lot about dog training!
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.
We had one session today and my dog responded very well. Trainer is professional, caring, and addressed all of our questions. We signed up for 5 additional lessons.
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.
Great experience! Margaret provided us with the tools we need to work with our dog. She is extremely professionally, knowledgeable, and genuinely loves working with dogs. Would highly recommend!
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.
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!
I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!
