Jay is an excellent trainer that will make your dog behave better and understand who is the boss. My 12 year old twin girls had a lot of fun working with him and our 4 month old Golden Retriver. Jay gives you written documentation of what you worked on for reference. The documents are excellent to refer to when needed. Best of all the in house training of your dog in their own environment makes a big difference. It is individual gaining, not a group session like the pet stores. I would definitely recommend Ruff Adjustments. Larry and Cathy Meyrowitz

Tom is great! He has so much knowledge and experience with dog training. We are first time dog owners and Tom has helped us every step of the way. We could not have imagined this process going as smooth and easy as it has. We are convinced that Tom has played a huge role. His continued advice and suggestions are always welcomed and implemented at our home. Our 9month old puppy is so well behaved! Many people who meet him cannot believe how good he is and we attribute this training to Tom. We've learned to respects the dog's needs for boundaries and structure. Tom taught us to think like a dog and not like a human, allowing us to better communicate with our dog. Tom has become a member of our family as well. We highly recommend using him for any of your dog training needs.

I cannot give enough accolades to Dorice. When I was having problems training my puppy wheaten terrier, a few people, including our Vet recommended Dorice. She came to our home and worked with my husband and I and the puppy, of course, for a few hours and by the end of the session we saw amazing positive results. Dorice is the most energetic, upbeat person I know and look forward to our next sessions with her.

I am going to chime in on Michelle's (from 11th Hour Rescue) post on July 18, 2012. I am the alpha-mom from the lucky family (3 children 10 and under and a "never a second of issue" chocolate lab, Jasper) who adopted Bandit. Like Michelle, we immediately noticed Bandit's smile in looking over images online. We could not stop thinking about this adorable dog who's pictures and description of his progress from training. Now like any parent, the kid's safety comes first and foremost. I had the idea tha twe would never get a pitbull/mix due to the stigma and negative media in my household. However, we were intrigued with Bandit and decided to go take a look. Mind you, we are people who have NO experience whatsoever with training a dog, aside from watching the Dog Whisperer here and there. Jasper came as a rescue from the pound perfectly behaved. I don't want to lie, we were quite nervous and also initially not a fan of the idea of an e-collar, especially since we were not the most confident of people who thought we could continue training a dog. Jacqueline Zinetti's balanced approach of consummate professionalism, skillful and user-friendly training,and contagious passion for helping a special dog be successful with a family. I truly appreciated her patience for us as laypeople as she build's into her thorough training of us to make mistakes and to help build our confidence. Believe me, one half-hour with Jaqueline and Off-Leash K9 Training, you recognize the top-notch training your dog AND you are receiving. Bandit has been with us about a month now and we are mutually loving the bond we are creating. He is awesome with the kids and did very well with transitioning with Jasper. We are seeing his progress with his transition despite our mistakes that we have made. There have been some regression, however these are moments that we use to continue to practice and train using the tools that Jac With Off-Leash K9 Trainer, Jacqueline there, we are confident that we will
