Deb and Raymond have been absolutely amazing. I have a fear reactive dachshund. I found Vigilant K9 on thumbtack and reached out for more information. Deb contacted me immediately. The communication, support, education, and training is absolutely amazing. My dachshund is a different dog and I am way more confident as is he! I recommend Deb and Raymond to anyone who needs professional dog training!

Deb has went above and beyound in order to help our dog and his aggresion issues! You can see how much she enjoys her job and it reflects in her work. My dog is absolutely in love with Deb! We communicate on a regular basis and I enjoy that, because I feel comfortable being able to call her if I come up with any questions regarding my dog and his training!

I met Elizabeth Givens at her store and doggie daycare, The Woof Store. After a few visits at the daycare both me and my dog loved Elizabeth and her staff. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable about dog training and behavior. My dog looked forward to going to the day care. After the store and daycare closed, I hired Elizabeth for individual dog training sessions. I never had much success with dog training in the past with other dogs. Her method of dog training is based on positive reinforcement. The philosophy behind the method and process she uses is not only very effective but once you understand it makes a lot of sense and works! My dog and I plan to do further training with Elizabeth in the future.

Elizabeth has been beyond amazing!! We adopted a puppy from a rescue with no background of how to raise a puppy. Needless to say, we were doing most things incorrectly but Elizabeth has been so knowledgeable and patient in training myself and my two daughters how to provide the safest, happiest home for our puppy. Beyond the standard training, our Marlowe has some serious anxiety/aggression issues and Elizabeth has gone above and beyond to help!! Every penny spent has been worth it to ensure we have the very best lifetime with our newest family member. If you're on the fence - do it today - hire Elizabeth!

I contacted Elizabeth because I was not as prepared as I thought for the new puppy I got. I am on a fixed income and Elizabeth was very accommodating. We worked out a fee and training plan and I am extremely happy with both her knowledge and methods. She is very professional and courteous. There is SO much more to teaching a dog than I could have anticipated, but Elizabeth has been patient and very accessible as far as being able to contact her with questions. I highly recommend her.

Kirsten is such a great teacher when it comes to dogs! She was very patient when explaining things to us, and really delved into the history of dogs and their behavior. She's been so helpful in regards to training us too! She went above and beyond for us, and even came last minute when we needed her to, as she's very flexible! We sure are glad we chose Kirsten to help us with our dog training!

Kirsten is amazing with dogs and those in need of a service dog! My Denali is very shy and I have PTSD; a tough combination to work with, but she was so patient and worked through all of my issues in working with Denali. Now, I am able to go out when I need and want to without becoming completely overwhelmed and panic stricken in public.

Kristen was fantastic!! Her no nonsense and intellegent approach to training our two dogs was wonderful. We saw a change almost immediately. We will use her to continue our dogs' training and recommend her friends! I also am glad we could call her for help and advice after the training was finished.

I bought my dog Luna from a shelter 2 years ago and because she was already two years old, training her was a challenge for me. We did 2 rounds of Petsmart training with not much to show for the price and time put in. Even when she learned commands she was very stubborn and wouldn’t always listen. When I decided to try Off Leash K9 Training, and decided to board-and-train, I was nervous. My dog was notorious for being disobedient and I didn’t know how effective she’d be without me there. I came back to a dog who was not only obedient, but very happy as well! I think Luna and I both realized we had much more fun on our walks off leash and she finally seemed like she understood what I needed from her, leaving me stress free. Erin, her trainer, was very helpful at teaching me how to use the remote and to praise Luna when she was doing things correctly. I am so thankful to Off Leash for giving my dog the skills and tools to be obedient, and for the new and improved relationship we now have!! I would highly recommend the board-and-train option!

I definitely recommend Off Leash K9 Training! My dog had a very high pray drive, ran after everything that moved and would not listen to anything. We had gone to another trainer that taught treat training but this only worked until there was something worth more then the treat. With the help of Off Leash K9 Training my dog no longer runs after anything and listens to every command no problem, off leash and in any situation. I love that I can take her anywhere! Trainers are nice and always helpful. Worth every penny!

When I hired Lisa, I was having lots of behavior issues with my two dogs. After Lisa came to the house for a few sessions I felt confident in what to do and my dogs were responding well to their new behavior expectations. I have also used Custom K9 Performance to board my dogs, which can be anxiety stricken. I was so pleased with the facility and traveled easy knowing my dogs were getting great care.

We took 2 of our dogs through training here and they are awesome!! Lisa was very patient with everyone and I feel we learned a lot during the classes. Just a really great experience and her dogs are all amazingly trained. I have never seen such well behaved dogs. I have been through other classes and the dogs must be on leash even with the trainer. Her dogs all are perfect during class!!!

We've just started our training sessions with Georgette, and, I'm VERY happy with her, so far! All dog trainers do things differently / have different philosophies. As I'm learning her philosophy, I have had questions. Even before our first training session, but, after the initial consultation, I had several questions. She answered them all very quickly, without any defensiveness or irritation. She is incredibly open and happy to discuss any concerns. She made it clear that I could call her, and we could discuss it, further. When she came to my house, she talked to me, further, and made sure I felt good about the direction. She even brought me literature to read to help me better understand her methods. She took a lot of time to really listen to my specific needs, concerns, and goals for training, and, even in the first session, demonstrated how we will accomplish those goals. She is more than willing to come to my office, house, church - every environment where my dogs may need a little help. My dogs REALLY like her, and, she truly seems to like them, a lot, too! I am very optimistic for our future training sessions (and, she's super sweet, so, it makes it that much more fun!)

I learned more from Arie in 60 minutes than I did in 6 weeks at another puppy training business. She understood my puppy and me, what I needed and what my puppy was into. She gave me helpful ideas and suggestions. I will sign up for one of her classes as soon as her business is up and running.

I am a certified professional dog and cat trainer and am eager to grow my business with new clients! I specialize in obedience, trick training as well as behavior modification and problem solving!

  • Albuquerque, NM

About

My training method trains dogs that obedience, as well as other desirable behaviors, like not jumping on people, merits them the things they like, like praise, petting, toys and treats. This kind of training develops a dog whose main motivation is built on gaining a reward, instead of avoiding punishment. My aim is to educate dog owners to look at your dog as an individual, and utilize the things she or he likes as an method of rewarding when your dog does something you like. Dogs want a clear leader and long to have a purpose in your family pack. You'll give your dog purpose by showing her or him how to be a mannerly member of the family. The bond will develop between you and your dog through respect, and not through fear, stress or confusion, and it is fun too!

I am deaf with balance issues. I am considering a 7 month old female/spayed lab/husky mix as a certified assistance dog for me. I am not rich. I just have this very important need. What would my cost be and approximately how long would the training take? My hearing dog died so I am familiar with the process. I use a scooter outside so she would need to learn to walk beside me.
