Our dog (rescued 1.5 years ago) had major issues with jumpiness, and being afraid of everything, especially men. We suspect he was abused in a past life. Because of these things, we were nervous about him going away with Robert. After the week with Robert, being exposed to many different situations he was returned to us with a new confidence. He has been way more relaxed at home and less intimidated by new environments. We attend Robert's ongoing classes for added training. It's awesome to see what our dog is capable of and with us getting the right training, we are better pack leaders for him too. I highly recommend Robert's services for any dog training need. He has a way with them!
We adopted our little guy, Buddy, from a shelter in October of 2016. The poor guy was only ten months old and we were already his fourth (and forever!) home -- he had a lot of anxiety, he would tear things up if left alone for even a few minutes, and it was impossible to walk him due to all the pulling. When I found Karen, I was kind of at my wit's end. Karen called me back before the end of that day and we scheduled an evaluation. We went for seven sessions of private training, and not only is Buddy is a totally different dog now, but I'm a much better dog owner/Dad and our daughters are having a lot more fun with their little bro. Karen is obviously awesome at training dogs, but what she's really doing is teaching YOU all the techniques to be a good leader, which I really needed. Buddy is a much more confident and relaxed dog, and going on walks and playing with him are now really enjoyable for all of us and not mentally and physically exhausting. More great things about Karen: she's punctual, flexible, and very communicative. Also -- and this is important -- she totally knows what she's doing. She was firm but always very loving and gentle with Buddy. She loves what she does and she goes beyond the call of duty and I wish I would of met her sooner We continue our session tomorrow . I feel confident that we can continue and go even further with training (maybe we'll certify Buddy to be a Therapy " dog next, ), but occasionally I might need a pep talk to not feel bad about being "the boss." Karen has been able to read me very well, and even though tomorrow is our last session she makes me feel like I could text her any time if I had any additional questions or needed advice or a pep talk. The sessions were SO worth the investment!! Karen Thank you so much and I hope your ready for the next dog we are considering after the Magic you did working with Buddy .
January 16, 2016 I am very pleased to provide a testimonial for Kerri Lamorey of K9WAGIN Dog Training. I used to think that I was a pretty good dog guy but my meager skill pales in comparison to the encyclopedic knowledge and solid experience that Kerri Lamorey has with dogs. To say that she has mastered dog-think and behaviors would be an understatement. She is especially adept with herding dogs. I learned of Kerri when I watched her give a herding-dog demonstration at the Reno Celtic Festival. I thought of her a few months later after I rescued a twelve-month-old Border-Collie-Kelpie mix from a shelter in Salinas California. This high-power dog had been feral for most of its life and it was a calamity waiting to happen. I realized that I would need Kerri if this rescue dog and I were to have any hope of a future together. Twelve months later HappyJack is still a handful but thats to be expected from a dog with the combined energy of an entire ranger platoon. Thanks to Kerri, Jack and I have learned to channel his enormous drive in productive ways. Kerri skillfully employs rational, compassionate, behavior modification to dog and human simultaneously. She is not afraid to voice her opinions honestly and with passion regarding all things dog. You have only to listen to her and incorporate her recommendations which she communicates tactfully, clearly, and respectfully to gain the dog you want to have. If having a balanced, secure, polite, obedient, well-behaved, eager-to-learn, dog is important to you, Kerri is the trainer for you. If having confidence that your dogs behavior will be appropriate when introduced to anyone or to any situation is important to you, Kerri is your trainer. I recommend her highly and without reservation.
Me and my husband are very satisfied with Sara's service. All our dogs very like her as well. Sara is experienced and responsible pet sitter and I will definitely hire her again when I have to travel.
Desiree has been so fun to work with, and my dog loves her training days. She is so excited to practice her new lessons every week, and I really see a difference in obedience, and affection towards me. Thanks Desiree!
The Off Leash Training team was great! After thinking that my three legged mischief maker and his four legged brother couldn't be trained, I realized I was very much mistaken. From the first lesson on I saw constant improvement with my dogs and couldn't wait to go back. I wouldn't let anyone else train my dogs.
Brittany is the volunteer coordinator for the US Wolf Refuge here in Nevada. She takes the extra time to see that all of the animals in her care are excellently taken care of. She is the person to go to for all your pet sitting needs, my dog Roxie loves her.
In the process of training with Mobile K9. My dog loves the active agility training she receives. Don Keeps her mind active and her body agile:) Love this trainer!
Ellen Dale Rand is an excellent dog trainer with experience and knowledge that puts her at the top of her field. I have felt totally confident in her ability with my dogs and I give high praise for her expertise in all areas of dog training. She is reliable and trustworthy when scheduling private appointments or group classes. You won't be disappointed!
Very professional! My dog is chasing cars up my driveway. Tyler got to know the dog, explained the various techniques that could be used. He walked through the pros and cons of each. He decided to go with the most basic. Spent an over an hour at my house and trained both myself and my dog.
Linda was amazing, best our dog has ever had
John was super knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful during our first lesson at Dog Sports America. If you are interested in barn hunt or other dog sports and looking for a local and friendly place to go, John is your guy!
Natasha has been an excellent help in successfully training my German Shepherd, showing me techniques that I may have not have learned outside of her skilled lessons. She has been training both me and my puppy which has given mysti and I a chance to form a life long bond of obedience and understanding. Although we are still training, and will be for awhile longer, I know that I can depend on Natasha for any training obstacles we may encounter, and together we will overcome...I will highly recommend her to everyone.
Bettina came to our home to clip the nails on our 6 Dachshunds. She was awesome, the dogs loved her and her assistant! I would recommend these folks for all your pets grooming needs.
