Kat is awesome! Very thorough and professional. Best dog trainer I've met! Def sticking with her!
I have a 3 year old Belgian Malinois (Dex) that has a great deal of energy but is very smart. I was having some obedience issues with him that I wanted to address in an official manner. I conducted a lot of research regarding dog trainers in the area. My goal was to find someone who possessed a great deal of expertise in training dogs, someone I could trust to get Dex on track with basic obedience and maybe teach him more advanced skills as well. My research led me to Off Leash K9. I read up on Willie Harrell, his vast experience with K9's and training, as well as the numerous positive reviews of his training programs. I contacted him and set Dex up for the two week in-house board and train program. Dex started April 1st with one of Mr. Harrell's trainers, Daniel Clark. I was updated via E-mail and videos during the course of his training as to his progress. I was very impressed with how quickly he advanced in his training. When his training period was complete, last Saturday, I met with Mr. Clark and he went over Dex's new skills, as well as the training collar, in detail. Mr. Clark told me Dex was very smart and learned all of the basic skills in a couple days so he worked with him on some more advanced skills for the remainder of the program. He asked me several times as we went along if I felt comfortable with, and understood, what he was telling me. He went above and beyond to ensure I understood the instruction, the proper use of the collar, and Dex's new capabilities. He was genuinely concerned with making sure I had everything down. Since Dex returned home, I've been working with him on his new skills to get him even more dialed in on some of the more advanced things he learned. Mr. Clark has checked up on us a few times already too since I got Dex back. I cannot express with enough emphasis how much the training program helped Dex, me, and my family. Prior to his training, Dex was always first to the door. He would do about 10 spins before I got there and would literally bash his face through the door on his way out and back in. Now he knows door manners...so he sits and waits until I give him the command before going out or coming in. He also knows sit, down, come, place, heel, touch, extended sit/down, come to heel and through. I'm so grateful to Off Leash K9, to Willie Harrell, and especially to Daniel Clark for training Dex and making him the accomplished and well-behaved dog he now is. I couldn't have done it without them. I highly recommend consideration of Off Leash K9 for your dog training needs. I certainly will look to them again in the future for any advanced training I wish to pursue with Dex. Thank you Off Leash K9!
My experience thus far has been very positive and rewarding. I have seen quantifiable changes in my dog's behavior, resulting in a considerably more peaceful living environment! I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
I was privileged to have Denise Owens, dog trainer, help me She helped me with my lab. She helped me with manners, obedience, and walking my dog. She used to have pack walks with other dogs in the park. She is very innovative, communicates well with animals and their owners. I would definitely use her again for any dog.
Melissa is extremely knowledgeable about the GSD breed and is a highly experienced (GSD) dog trainer. Prior to our first session, she researched our GSDs blood line to truly understand the behavioral issues that need addressing for him, and took the time to get the full history from us. She outlined a clear program for training us and our 5 year old GSD, breaking it down into manageable steps for my husband and I, busy schedules and all. I knew from our correspondence prior to meeting in person that she was "the one" - she is the real deal and we are lucky to have found her to help us with our dog's fear aggression issues.
Very knowledgable and professional dog trainer!! I really like that he uses treats/rewards as a way of teaching and NOT using shock collars. My dog has been learning fast because of his techniques. On top of that, the trainer is very patient and flexible to work around your schedule. He even took the time to research the issues I was having with my dog (on his own time). Aside from the basic dog training, he also offers advanced classes. We meet up once a week and work on a command. This gives me time to train my dog on that specific command(s) during the days I am not with the trainer. Repetition is necessary to succeed. He also gives out goals for the dog every week and he always wants us as dog owners to succeed. If you want a very knowledgable and personable dog trainer, I highly recommend Dennis.
He is a great dog trainer, he was on point and knew what he was doing. I would totally recommend Tyler to everyone
Had our first session today and Fila took to Marlene so quickly and was quick to learn. She is a very loving lady and it really comes across with the dog....We have another session scheduled to learn some more things and I love that she is so flexible and loving. I would highly recommend her!!
I was a little skeptical at first and thought that my 6 year old pit bull was beyond help but within the first 20 minutes Doug had my dog responding I was simply amazed. By the end of the 2 hour training session my mind was completely blown the technics Doug uses work. I highly recommend Doug he is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and knows how to train you to get your dog to respond to you. I really cant wait to have Doug back for another session and learn some more. Thank you so much Doug for helping me to restore peace and quiet back to my home.
April is an excellent dog trainer who understands the importance of catering a training plan and appropriate tools and approaches to each individual dog's needs and temperament so they are successful. She works with each owner/pet parent around their schedule and makes sure they understand the importance of their role in shaping and maintaining appropriate behaviors of their dogs.
I adore this woman and cannot recommend her strongly enough! I have a dog whos skittish around strangers. Melissa walked into my house, read her behavior and gave Cali the space she needed. Within ten minutes Melissa was throwing a tennis ball for Cali, who was happily fetching, and they were suddenly best friends. I knew I had found my dog walker! Melissa has a special way with understanding what animals need to feel comfortable. I also have two cats who absolutely adore her, and they're a little shy around strangers too. But Melissa came into my home and quickly became part of the family. Her prices are very reasonable and you get a ton of bang for your buck. My favorite part of her services is that she always takes cute pictures of the animals and texts them to me after her visit. I love getting those texts in the middle of my work day, and it makes me feel so good to know that my animals are taken care of in my absence. Aside from daily dog walking, I've also used Melissa for pet sitting while I'm out of town, and have received the same kind of amazing service. It's hard to leave your animals for a day or a week or whatever. But when you know that they are being cared for by someone who loves them and is capable of handling their needs, all that worry melts away. I recommended Melissa to a coworker recently, and he was blown away by how awesome she was! Her personal touches are what make Melissa's services so special. Aside from the daily texts, she also took some hysterical pictures of my pets with costumes and left them as a holiday present. This is no fly by night operation- Melissa takes her responsibilities seriously, and works with local rescue organizations and trainers to hone her knowledge. She is a bona fide business owner, and she is VERY good at what she does. Again, I cannot recommend this womans services strongly enough. I just wish I knew more people in the area to whom I could refer her! I really urge you to use her services- youll be glad you did!
Peri did an amazing job caring for our pets while we were on vacation. She is super professional, she even provides her own background and references. We got daily updates on the pets. Our dog got sick mid way through our trip and she provided round the clock care. She even took some of linens home to clean. Peri's care is above and beyond! Rest assure your pets are in good hands with her.
I have used a number of trainers for other rescue doggies. Stacey is totally different. My current rescue doggie was very fearful and pretty skittish. Stacey came to my house and worked with us for about 3 hours and I was absolutely amazed at the progress in that short amount of time. He is more of a dog psychologist, rather than a typical trainer. He understands what the dog is afraid of and gets him to understand how to be calm and listen to what you are asking of him. By the time he was gone he was a different doggie altogether. He learned to hear what I am saying to him and to realize that I am in command, not him. By the time he left he was walking with me and not running in front, stopping when I stopped. He was not running out of the house and staying when I told him to. He definitely now realizes I am the leader of the pack, not him.
Karen is professional, courteous and is a great pet/house sitter. My two dogs and two cats were well taken care of while I was on my trip. She charges by each 24 hour period, and stayed at my house the whole time I was gone. It was great because she cleaned up my backyard after the dogs, cleaned litter boxes and took the dogs for walks. My neighbor even verified many times a day. That made me happy. She watered my plants, hosed my patio, picked up my mail, newspapers and packages. She is trustworthy and will stay at your house bringing her own food and linens placed over yours. My house was sparkling clean when I got home and my pets were relaxed too. That gave me peace of mind. I plan to hire Karen Cares again when I need to travel. I'm so glad I found her on here. Nice person and she did what she said she would do.
The most wonderful experience. It's very hard to find a trainer for a working dog, especially a service dog. My German shepherd Denali is now a official service dog through training by Sterling Ridge K9. He's my whole world, and I'm so blessed. Kristina changed my life and gave me my confidence to go out again and feel safe through my boy. I had been needing a service dog for a few years but I couldn't afford thousands to train with a society or any trainer wasn't capable or offering it. We are getting back out there! Thank you so much for everything.
I took both my dogs to Sin City K9 to have them trained. Rich and his staff are amazing and made our lives so much easier now that we can take our dogs out in public and not have to worry about them misbehaving. I would recommend anyone looking for a great dog trainer who not only takes the time to train your dog, but also you as to problem solve and handle things when he is not around. I now get compliments from people about how well trained my dogs are when we are out on our walks.... Thank you so much Rich!!!!!
I was very impressed with Mary's kindness and professionalism She made me feel so secure about leaving my dog Clancey in her care, and I could tell my dog felt very comfortable with her. Two Thumbs Up!
Tashena provided me with bi-weekly, private training services for my dog, Boots. In a matter of months, she was able to help me transform and train a dog that had suffered abuse and neglect from its previous owner, and had severe separation-anxiety issues. During the first session, she was able to identify undesirable behaviors and she worked with me to create a training plan to help Boots readjust to being a house dog. With her help, I learned how to work with my dog and what to do and not to do to continue to work with Boots. I am still using techniques she taught me to work with Boots. I found Tashena to be extremely personable and professional at all times. She is very knowledgeable and is able to analyze and create personalized behavior modification plans that work for an individual animal's needs. I highly recommend Tashena as a trainer and animal behavior specialist.
Very good working knowledges of dogs. It was not rushed he took his time and did not push my 6 month old Doberman puppy. While training he still let him be a puppy and figure things out. I was was pleased with our first meeting and the outcome. Would highly recommend Luis to anyone
Deb Manheim is my dog trainer of choice. She has worked with my dog since she was 10 weeks old, using positive reinforcement techniques that have made all the difference in the world. Deb understands dog behavior. Because of this, she develops multiple ways to train each individual dog that makes sense & is fun for the handler & dog. Deb provided me with outlines of each training session so I could review what I learned on my own, which I have found to be invaluable, even now when I am doing refresher training or training something new. I have been taught the foundations from Deb. Lastly, she is patient, non-judgemental & down to earth. After all, much of dog training is about "training" the owner/handler, so I appreciate her kindness & sense of humor.
