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

I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin, one of the trainers at The Canine Cure. We ended up board and training one of our dogs and boarding the other one as well. Caitlin took into consideration all of our concerns and did a great job building the foundation for our pups training. She was also very good about keeping us updated about both of our dogs while we were away on vacation and both of our dogs seemed like they were well taken care of during their stay. I will continue to use her services in the future and definitely would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Joan's approach to behavioral training is very integrated taking into account the dog's environment, diet, and activity level. It's so nice to have a trainer that can make additional recommendations beyond the standard behavioral instructions to include changes in dietary and health needs to improve the training process. We asked Joan for help with our Dachshund/Poodle cross after repeated accidents in the apartment. Within two sessions we were communicating with our puppy to understand when she needs to go out, when she just wants to play, etc. Joan has been a huge help, she's punctual and extraordinarily good with the dogs and brings a tremendous value to the process beyond just learning how to "sit." As with any dog trainer it's important to know that as the owner you're being trained as well requiring a good dose of humility. Joan handles this without condescension and always remains positive. I recommend her for training and general dog care consulting!

Our new rescue pup Roxie needed basic obedience training and we discovered Suzanne Rodda while searching the internet for local dog trainers. Suzanne knows her stuff ! We have worked with her over the last month and a half and the difference in Roxie is obvious. Suzanne's approach is to not only train your dog, but to train YOU to work with your dog as well. It's a win win combination. We had a few challenges facing us along the way BUT Suzanne's flexibility and commitment to us made working with her easy and a pleasure. She has our recommendation as an excellent trainer.

Ariana is great with animals. She explains what we need to do in great detail and makes sure we are doing it properly. After only a few sessions we have seen lots of improvement with our aggressive dog. I highly recommend using her services.

So glad we hired Anna. She helped us to understand that our dog was anxious, and not aggressive, and gave us invaluable advice on how to work with him and work to break unwanted behaviors. The time she spent with us was informative and enlightening. While we have always tried to be responsible and attentive pet parents, Anna helped us identify areas where we were subconsciously giving our dog the wrong cues, as well as being inconsistent in our day to day expectations of him. Her follow up after the appointment has been thorough and much appreciated. She emailed us the same evening with a run down of all the points we discussed, followed up multiple times in the days following to see how things were going, and offered encouragement and advice. All around a wonderful experience and though it is still early after our appointment, we can already see improvements in our dog's behavior. I look forward to watching not only our pup, but us as parents, grow and learn.

Anna was great from the start—immediately responded to my initial inquiry and had wonderful followup, but most importantly, she's just a wonderful dog trainer. Our 11-month-old terrier responded so well to here, and she was great in giving us the knowledge of how our puppy thinks, which allows us to be better at understanding our dog.

Debra is indeed very knowledgeable and efficient. She is dependable punctual and pleasant. Most of all her rates are very reasonable. We are very happy with the results with Lucy our year old pit, who listens to her (and us,) now like she is the most obedient dog in the world!

Alice Marino is a wonderful dog trainer. She was able to stop my dog from biting other dogs in just two sessions. I have recommended her to other people with problem dogs and they have all thanked me and told me that she was wonderful with their dogs and helped them overcome their problems.

Gus is very professional and knowledgeable about dog psychology and is great in explaining dog behavior. We consulted with him to try to figure out the causes of our dog's aggressive behavior towards other dogs and the best ways of dealing with it. Gus was able to pinpoint the issue right away and gave us some hands on tips that we are going to use going forward. I would highly recommend him as a trainer.

We have tried many dog trainers with many different techniques over the 35 years of having dogs. None came anywhere close to the effectiveness of Rick's handling of our golden doodle. We were on the verge of giving our dog away when we first met Rick. After a reasonable number of sessions, he transformed him into a completely different and oh so delightful pet. And the neat thing about Rick's techniques, our dog showed improvement after the very first session and just continued to get better as we went through the winter. Rick truly worked magic.

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.

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.

Working with Faryn was great. Fenway loved her and listened! She did well at training not only the dog but my husband and me!!! She was clear on her instructions, consistent and helped Fenway understand the basic commands. Faryn is very professional and at the same time is warm and engaging. Her methods for training Fenway worked and her love of animals was very obvious. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Faryn!!!

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!
