I hired Robert for my Boarder Collie/Husky mix. She is full of puppy energy but she was afraid of many noises, people and places. After a week with Robert she was much more self confident and less afraid of her surroundings. Training is an ongoing commitment which is what makes Robert a perfect fit for anyone who wants a well behaved and adjusted dog. His training offers multiple ways to continue your dogs training. Robert is extremely skilled, professional and flexible. He has a positive outlook and treats my dog as his own with love and affection while he trains. Thanks Robert for helping to make my sweet puppy so well rounded!
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 .
Our Sophie is one year old and has had many challenges to keeping her attention on task. Kerri was informative and compassionate! She helped Sophie, and us, learn new skill sets in a kind but consistent way. We are so happy with the results we have seen with Sophie's ability to learn, walk on leash calmly and act more appropriately in our house. We're looking forward to all our continued learning. Thankyou Kerri for a VERY professional job well done! We HIGHLY recommend Kerri for your dog training issues.
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 worked very well with my high energy puppy. We learned a lot and had fun doing it.
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.
Evangeline took our two black lab/german shepherd pups for walks while we were at work. The dogs always looked forward to their time with her and came back ready for a nap! Evangeline sent pictures and text messages sharing their adventures. She had her hands full with two puppies and always had things in control. She is thoughtful, kind and very responsible. I highly recommend Evangeline for your pet needs. Ann
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.
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.

My name is Guy Yeaman. I have been professionally training dogs for over 45 years. I offer group obedience classes (both basic and advanced), private in-home classes, tracking, protection, Schutzhund, and in-board training at my home. My classes can be found in Reno, Sparks, Incline Village, Stateline, South Lake Tahoe, Carson City and Gardnerville. I use repetition and praise methods. There are many training tools available. Each has its use. I use some; some, I do not. I would be happy to explain the purpose and usage of any training tool and my opinion of when they are useful and when they are not. My basic obedience classes run $80-82 for a 6-week course (other rates available on inquiry). I guarantee results. Some dogs simply take longer to learn than others. You may bring your dog back to as many classes as it takes for it to learn for no extra charge.
My family has a strong history with training own dogs and caring for them like own children. I have trained our own dogs how to sit, play dead, heal, stay, shake, and roll over. I enjoy the company of dogs as they provide healing to the heart and mind. My grandmother takes her wire fox terriers to dog shows around the US and taught me a various amount of skills, such as grooming and training.
We are specializing in the following: * basic skills such as sit/down/come/stay * socialization * house training * chewing * jumping up * puppy biting * behavior modifications * nutrition We have AKC's Canine Good Citizen certifications.
I spend time with the dog and the owner to correct and train. That way both are learning together.
