Deb from Doggies in the Ruff had my exuberant adult Lab and Shorkie puppy eating out of her hand within minutes of meeting them. In addition to Deb's dog walking service, I've also taken advantage of her separate dog training service and have seen improvements in my Shorkie puppy already. Her rates are very reasonable and the peace of mind I have knowing I can rely on someone as experienced as her is priceless.

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!

Deb was on time and her knowledge of dogs and training can only be the sum of many years in the dog training industry. Our Girly listen to her and she made dog training look easy. I highly recommend her.

Pine street dogs have a wonderful philosophy about training dogs. Patience with both the dog and the owner. Goals and objectives laid out at the initial meeting by observing the dogs ability and the owners participation needed for the process to be successful.

I haven't had a puppy in years as I normally adopt older dogs from rescues so I forgo what puppy training was all about. I'm sure when we walked in, they did not believe we would ever make it through the class as my pup was headstrong and 100% ADHD but Beth was able to walk us through and I think she was even surprised at the end with the big turn around!

I have met with Beth for our first session. She is positive, pleasant, and extremely knowledgeable. She listened to our story and tailored our training to our needs. She is truly a pup whisperer! All three of our dogs were drawn to her! We are looking forward to a long relationship with Beth in our journey with Lucy the therapy dog!

The trainer got back to me quickly and explained everything I needed to know to take her class. Beth has experience training my particular breed of dog🐕 She sent an information packet that makes it easy to register. A+

We are extremely pleased that we selected Emma. She is a wonderful person and absolutely knows what to do. Our puppy was born to a street dog in Puerto Rico and when we adopted her, she did not have the best habits. Emma has taught us what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Our Sabrina is learning quickly and we employ what Emma has taught us and it never fails. She is flexible with scheduling and is always on time. You cannot do better than hiring Emma! Sabrina sits on command, heels when walking and sits at every street intersection. There is more to be done but thus far, it has been a rewarding and very useful training period.

Emma (Ruff Recruits) is amazing! She is super accommodating and someone I can trust when I have last minute change of plans that require someone to look after my two boys. There are tons of dog walkers in Philadelphia and I've tried a few, but Emma is my go to. She has full of energy and knows how to control my two crazy pups (they are two hyper golden retrievers). After a dog walk with Emma, I come home to 2 content pups instead of the usual hyperness. She is the best!!!!!!!!!

It is Day 1 of hiring Emma to dog walk and I'm so thrilled to have my newly adopted greyhound in such capable and safe hands. Emma did a complimentary "meet and greet" and really took the time to get to know Sonic and her fears with big City life. Sonic and I both look forward to a long relationship with Emma. As a nervous new greyhound Mom, I feel so much more relaxed knowing she will be there for my girl!!! Thank you Emma!

Just catching up on reviews even though we weren't able to take our dog YET. After talking to this incredibly professional K9 EXPERT, not just a trainer, I was thrilled he'd consider, taking my dog for "K9 & human Education. I've been through 6th different "Obedience Courses" with all my other dogs & have a pretty good idea, who is a good trainer and who is not. However we couldn't go through the course; my dog developed an immune complex disorder with his feet & toes. The Vet advised against his doing any strenuous exercise for at least 3-4 months. Our dog's been on special diet, dietary supplements & strong temporary meds for 2+ months. His feet look fantastic. Our Vet down here is amazing too. So--Come Autumn I hope J Mac Academy will have time to begin retraining our Aussie. Still, I was so impressed with J Mac K-9 Academy's knowledge & philosophy of canine training, we'd be indeed lucky to have the benefit of his experience. Hope we can work our dog in.

Nelson is the most skilled and productive dog trainer I have ever met. The other 3 trainers I took my 2 Aussies to couldn’t handle them but Nelson handled them very well. He knows which training each of my dogs need so I am very content with his service. I definately recommand Riedel k9 if your dog needs training.

Nelson was the only trainer that was able to get my dog to respond and also teach me how to properly work with my dog. Now my family and friends can interact with my boy and I enjoy doing things with him because he listens. It's not a fight anymore just to go for a simple walk or have company over. Juan

I worked with Leigh with my dog from the age of 11 weeks through to 3 years old. Leigh is a great teacher, uses positive conditioning techniques and supported us with our pups in basic obedience and manners and supported us through our dog becoming fear-aggressive toward other dogs as he aged. Our dog also learned a lot of agility and tricks by working with Leigh. She is patient, encouraging, and knows that the real trick to good dog training is teaching the human! I would recommend her for anything your dog is going through!

My dog Marcello and I were lucky to be students of Leigh at Zoom Room. Leigh is an incredibly patient and devoted positive reinforcement dog trainer. She is able to immediately connect with the dogs in her classes and provide insightful corrections both in obedience and agility. She is also extremely quick to respond to emails and has overall awesome customer service skills. Leigh also possesses strong leadership skills, evidenced by the respect she receives from her team members.

Leigh taught me everything I know about raising my beautiful but crazy energetic, sneakily brilliant, and sensitively reactive border collie. We would be utterly lost without her. Leigh is brilliant, both at dog training and human training. Every dog owner should have a Leigh.

We hired Mark to train our female Rescue 5 year old Rotty/lab mix. This rescue was very snappy, nipped a neighbor & didn’t walk, but ran on leach. We’re still at the beginning of training but so far Mark has trained us to walk slowly, directing our dog and we already can touch & love up our girl. I made a connection with my dog that I didn’t have before Mark. She trusts me more & is looking at me for guidance. We were ready to give her back to the pound because no non-kills would take her with her anxiety. Thank you Mark for giving our rescue a stable home! Xoxoxo!!!!!! 💜🤗💜🤗🤗🤗

Ryker LOVES Mark. I've seen such a huge improvement pertaining to many of Ryker's behavioral issues since we started working with Mark and am looking forward to seeing many more. I'd previously done a bit of training with Ryker, but never got these types of results. Extremely happy with his service and would recommend 100%!!!!

Working with Nicole is more than professional. She makes you feel like family. Nicole treats your dogs like her own. I have two Siberian Huskies. She has trained them to walk off the leash and come on command. She boards them when I’m away and I know they are safe while I’m away. If you want positive results, Nicole and Bucks training is the perfect choice. You will not be disappointed. You will gain a friend as well.

Curtis has been helping me train my two rescue pit bulls (13 mos old, brothers); he is a fantastic, patient, and caring trainer. I love that he stresses positive reinforcement. My dogs respond very well to his calm energy, and each lesson they are so engaged and want to learn. I'm actually surprised at how fast they are learning. I guess I have to figure out how much I want them to learn now!

Curt is an extremely professional and personable trainer. My two dogs absolutely love him and he saved my sanity by training me on how to be a more effective dog owner.

I met Shawn Reed when I adopted my American Foxhound, Hope, as a companion for my Staffy mix (Dyna) after we lost our dog Dudley to cancer. I contacted Shawn primarily for basic training with Hope, but he also helped me work with Dyna on some impulse control issues and some newly developed leash reactivity. Unfortunately, Dyna who had always been very social, had become desocialized during the last 2 years of our Dudley’s life and, while she was not aggressive with Hope, she had become aggressive towards other dogs. After working with Shawn on Dyna’s impulse control and focus, I decided to have Shawn take her for board & train to do some intense socialization work with her. The results were astounding. I expected Dyna to be more manageable around other dogs and had hoped that, maybe, I could possibly do some fostering for rescue but I understood any expectation I could foster was probably unrealistic. As it turns out, Dyna was not only ready to start fostering, she’s become an amazing resource to help the dogs we’ve been fostering since her time with “Uncle Shawn.” Thanks to Shawn, Dyna has personally been able to help save the lives of over 30 dogs so far and has flourished in the process.

I have known Shawn for about 3 years. My male Great Pyr spent 5 weeks in board and train with Shawn two springs ago and came home much happier, relaxed and well trained. Harper will always be our protector, but he now understands that I am the boss, not him and that not everyone that comes into our home is a threat. Shawn has always been willing and ready to answer any questions and offer help when needed. Shawn will always be one of Harper’s all time favorite people and that says a lot!
