Introduction: Von Weiss Kennels has over 25 years of training experience and we have a personal touch with all our clients. We believe in quality training without using force to train and believe in motivational training instead of negative results. I love my work. Ever dog is different and has their own personalities. Meeting and training each dog is a goal for me from my heart, not my pocket book. I love learning new technics that are constantly changing and getting close to the dogs for a great bond.

I’d like to add value and punctuality too yo my list. I’m so pleased to have found Melissa on Thumbtack. I could see immediately she knows what she’s doing. Melissa is a highly skilled dog trainer. She’s also kind and can assert authority without threatening my pet. My Maltese Rascal and I feel an Angel guided us to her. Thank you. Deborah

I am writing a review before the end of Dahlia’s training sessions, because I am already seeing so much progress. Dahlia is a four year old pit mix. She has always been incredible people friendly, but has gotten increasingly aggressive with dogs. We signed up for a 12 week course, and just four weeks into training she is learning to ignore dogs and listen to me. I’m so excited to finish our classes, but already can say that the improvements are already making our everyday life better.

Very sweet and absolutely adores/understands my fur babies! Works with you and makes sure that you and your dog are understanding the tasks. 10/10 would recommend for literally any type of training !

Melissa has been great so far with my dog Avery!! Avery was aggressive toward people outside her small circle of humans, and aggressive toward other dogs. She also used to just about pull my shoulder out of its socket on walks. We have only had 4 sessions so far, but Avery will walk or trot by my side, and her aggression has decreased. She is able to focus now and looks for direction and commands rather than just lunging trying to nose pump/nip. We have seen TREMENDOUS progress so far. I cannot wait for what’s to come. I 10/10 recommend Melissa from Avon Weiss Kennels. Worth every cent.

So far good results. Trainer Annie is teaching me what I need to know about teaching my Dutchie to become a good family member.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first process with a new client is going over their specific needs for their dog. Then I explain exactly what is entailed for the training and what to expect. I always ask about the background of the dog and observe behavior the first lesson.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    9 years training K9 Units in NYPD. 6 years training in T&E Productions. 4 years training Schutzhund Sport. 7 years personal training Master Degree in Animal Behavior 6 years at Moorpark University

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My father was one of the first K9 officers in NYC. I grew up with German Shepherds and learned very young about dogs.
