Despite the last review, which I view as a case of poor owners. The fact rings true that there is no bad dog just bad owners. Even if you watch "Caesar Milan" he says the same thing repeatedly and his techniques are also the same if not similar to Elaine's. Regardless, we adopted a Pitt Bull from the local SPCA on January 30,2016 she was very good with my husband and I but aggressive with ANYONE else and with other dogs as well. We knew we had a problem when we could not have people come inside of the house and even when people walked into the vets office she would get aggressive. I researched and talked to many dog trainers and to my shock a few of them said my Dallas was pretty much a lost cause and just an affressive dog. After Elaine's first visit with us we learned the tools we needed to have a happy balanced dog which to make a dog balanced and a happy dog does not require what we need and want to be happy as most think, as I thought before. Elaine knew exactly what Dallas needed and how to work with us to be able to help her. After her first visit was over we had a new dog instantly! The main concerns were covered in only 1.5hrs, this amazed us! We did use the gentle leader and we still use it every time we go on walks, she doesn't like it but she responds much better with it on and we both get an enjoyable walk. Now, 3 lessons in we are confident that we can take her places and know how to handle situations if they occur because with our dog it's all time and repetition at this point. We had a great experience with Elaine and would recommend her to anyone. She knows what she's doing and just go in knowing it's the owners who give their dogs these behaviors not the dogs. Trust me I found out I was making her worse by trying to baby her, I changed my behavior and energy and she changed pretty instantly. Personally I trust the care of my dog in Elaine's hands and you should too, she really does know her stuff and keep in mind being a dog owner does not make us experts so let's leave it to the actual expert!
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 .
The best dog trainer!
Deb just left the house after a wonderful 2 hour session. I have always had dogs but never ever thought about using a dog trainer. Well I must say that Deb brought so much to the training of our Lab that it was invaluable. She is so knowledgeable, professional and very personable making the session a fun' experience for all of us. We highly, highly recommend Deb to anyone looking for a dog trainer!
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!
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!
My two dogs attended Adult Manners I class with Marion O'Neil. Marion did give us many tips on how to help our dogs follow direction. They have both made strides in their behavior. We are pleased that we attended Molasses Creek Dog Training.
Nancy is absolutely an outstanding dog trainer. Over the years, I've hired more than 5 different dog trainers to help me with my pets and now I will never have to look for anyone else. Nancy has taught me how to understand and communicate with dogs better than any other trainer I've worked with or book I've read. If you want a happy and obedient dog then Nancy will be able to help. My dog walks by my side on a leash, comes when called off leash, goes and lays down when I load my dishwasher, sits politely when I greet people at my door, stays on my unfenced property and does lots more fun tricks too, all thanks to Nancy's help.
Steve is a very knowledgeable dog trainer. His method of dog training is so easy to learn and has proven excellent results raising my puppy. Highly recommend him for any dog behavior problems!
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.
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.
Mike is one of the most educated, unique trainers around! I've tried a lot of PT's over the years.. but he has given me the best workouts and advice that I have witnessed. He tailored to my mediocre-fitness level when we first started, giving me enough of a challenge to keep me guessing each workout, but not overwhelming me. His education and level of knowledge is great, he always is available to me for questions (diet, etc.) Also a funny guy (or tries to be haha!)
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.
Training has not started so I can’t rate the service quality. But so far Mr. Casper exhibit professionism and responsiveness. The rest I will rate after the service completed which may be sometime in July.
Pilar has done a fantastic job training our pup on a leash! I have counted on her to take care of my baby daily for the past 8 years. She did great working with her, as huskies are an intelligent yet stubborn and mischievous breed.
Athena is a wonderful caring trainer who has a passion for rescuing dogs and helping them find their forever homes. She has worked with all range of dog types, breeds including aggressive dogs. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a caring dog training professional!
It is with great pleasure that we write a note recommending New Beginnings Dog Training ! We are absolutely delighted with the experience Raffie, our 7 month old Standard Poodle had with Kristy at her home...she did a wonderful job with him. Don't hesitate to call her if you want your dog trained properly ..... showing caring and kindness while getting wonderful results....she's terrific and we highly endorse her work. Raffie had all kinds of experiences while he was living with her to board and train over a two week period; she's the best ! Tom and Sandi....Reading, Pa.
My dog came home looking like a show dog. Arlene did a wonderful job and it will make brushing him a joy. I'm so glad I found her.
Beth from Canine Einstein is absolutely amazing! She came to my house last night and worked with my new adopted rescue beagle, Charlotte. She is 2 years old and hasn't had any type of training before. She's not housebroken, she begs for food during all mealtimes, she jumps on tables (something I've never seen any dog do before!) and is pretty much into everything. We needed some serious help!! Beth is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and very soft spoken too. By the end of the night she had Charlotte sitting and staying (which is something she's Never done). Her normal things were to jump on you, stand on all 4 legs, stand on 2 legs while leaning against you, or to lay down and sleep but never sit!! Now Charlotte is becoming a completely different dog thanks to Beth. It's like night and day and I'm so relieved. Today Charlotte and I worked on all of the things that we learned last night and she's been doing fantastic. Beth is a truly gifted woman!
Tim is very responsive, and professional. Thank you for your time.
