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.
Denise's clearly understands dogs and their behaviors. She offers a variety of services including private and group training sessions. Denise is knowledgeable in breed specifics which enhances her personalized approach with her clients. She was recommended to me by a neighbor. She has a professional demeanor and was on time for sessions at my home. I have a very bright energetic border collie puppy. I was having trouble asserting proper leadership. She is so positive and encouraging. Denise was quick in assessing problem behaviors (mine) and teaching a variety of obedience training skills. I enrolled in both group and private lessons. In just a few sessions Denise gave me the tips and tools needed to help me maximize and achieve the most fulfilling and rewarding relationship with my dog. She offers pack walks for clients, so I am taking advantage of those as well. It feels like one big canine social group. I definitely will continue with advanced training opportunities with Denise. Her methods really work!
Melissa is such an amazing trainer. She understands animals better than I've seen. ...and I grew up in a family with a AKC obedience/show GSD. So I knew what I wanted. We currently have an almost 2yr German shepherd who had social issues, obedience and manners issues. Melissa immediately detected what was wrong, what caused it and had results so quickly. She was able to get our shy,fear biting dog to play with dogs at the dog park in basically 1-trip! She's like hiring Ceasar Milan in Vegas! She taught our whole family how to work with our GSD AND our little Shih Tsu who has anxiety issues. Melissa and the kennels have SO much experience. She will develop a training schedule for your schedule and needs. I had been looking for a good dog trainer for 1.5yrs. I wanted AKC training. No "shock" collar training. Positive reinforcement and not just another person saying they can train a dog. We had gone to puppy classes at Pet Smart-save your money- if you want someone who KNOWS animals, Has a great reputation, Is knowledgable about AKC, showing, training, guard dog training..stop searching and call VonWeiss Kennels! Best dog/Animal trainer in Vegas area!!!! So glad we found her!
She takes wonderful care of animals. She's a animal lover and especially is a cat lover. You won't regret her taking care of your pets. She will take care of your pets with great care and with great passion.
I have two boxers and both show aggression to other animals so I have been unable to take them out for walks. I had a coworker tell me about her experiences with Tyler so I called him. Over the phone he was able to diagnose my male boxer issues and agreed to meet me for training at a halfway point between us and just during our introduction he was able to help me with him. The next session I brought out my female with my male to see if she was the issue and a new program will start. Tyler is awesome! After one session even she was a little more under control.
I had been given Anniina's name by a friend of mine whom I volunteer with at a local dog rescue, for animal behaviorism. My husband and I had just adopted a 5 year old male Maine Coon cat, Muskat. We presently have 2 German Shepherd dogs and 1 domestic cat, Oreo. I have been around animals all my life and feel very comfortable with dog behavior and introducing dogs to cats. However, I have never had 2 cats before, and Oreo had been a rescue cat when she was 10 weeks old and has always been an ONLY cat (she is now 14 years old). Needless to say, the cat intro did not go well. It was clear that Muskat had been around other cats, but Oreo was not having any of it. So, that's when I reached out to Anniina. Anniina was very honest from the beginning, admitting that she's never been asked to come to help out with cats (more specifically she works with dogs), but assured us that she has ample experience with cats. Anniina was so professional, flexible and forthright. She came to our home and was able to offer suggestions and put our minds at ease, that eventually, Oreo and Muskat will likely be able to reside in the same home, without any major fights. She gave suggestions and advice that was very clear cut. We followed all of her advice, and we can happily say that in less than two months we are now all happily co-existing (only an occasional hiss from Miss Oreo). Anniina has stayed available via text and I have reached out to her several times after her first visit. She's always responsive and never blew me off. I would HIGHLY recommend Anniina to anyone who has behavior problems with both dogs and cats!!
Samantha is a gem. She is professional, kind, a real dog person who will do wonders with your dog. She got my Doberman, Nick to behave on a leash in one walk. I would recommend her highly she is nice, patient and always is punctural and upbeat. I am so happy to have her as my professional dog walker and sitter. Consider using Samatha and you will be very satisfied. In closing Samatha is GREAT....
Trish has watched my miniature doxi several times and each time she has gone above and beyond her duties. She is trustworthy, dependable, loving and punctual. Not only did she come to my house but she came by two times a day to let my dog in and out. She even left the TV on soothing music so he didn't feel alone. Another time she made him a sweater from a sleeve of a friends sweater so he didn't get cold. She gave him a bath when he was stinky!!! He's a boy so he always stinks! She played with him and offered to take him on walks too! I would recommend her to anyone. She truly loves all animals and cares about them genuinely. I also completely trust her with my house and keys to them so she can let my doggie in and out. SHE IS AMAZING! YOU MUST HIRE HER!!!
Mandy is simply the best. I was so nervous about leaving my dog with anyone but I could not feel better about my experience. She goes above and beyond. My dog fell in love with this fluffy part of a blanket she gave it to me, she washed my dogs blankets, she sent me pictures and videos throughout the day. I felt so at easy. Mandy is the type of person who does this because she loves animals and is so kind!
Absolutely amazing! My dogs behavior has completely changed for the better and I am very happy with our progress. Strongly recommend to any and every dog owner!
I live in Los Angeles and travel to Vegas often and always bring my dog, Schnoopy with me. I had an all day business commitment that didn't allow me to bring him along and I'm not use to ever leaving him alone for more than three hours. Lynn was recommended to me so I called her up and asked if she would meet with me beforehand so that she could meet Schnoopy, it was clear that she was a true animal lover the ways she interacted with him. I could see my little Schnoopy felt comfortable around her. I'm extremely over-protective about Schnoopy and gave her very detailed instructions about his care, which she took very seriously. The next day while she watched him she sent me frequent updates and pictures. Lynn was wonderful with him and super accommodating to my last minute request for a dog-sitter. My only complaint is that she lives in Vegas and I wish she lived in LA so she could watch him here! Thank you Lynn! Licks from Schnoopy!
Nancy was such an amazing petsitter! We used her while we were away on our honeymoon and it was such a relief knowing we had someone so professional watching our animals. We have five animals (2 cats, 2 dogs, and 1 rabbit) so I'm sure she had her hands full, but she handled everything so well. I loved that she kept in touch via text while we were gone as well as sent us photos of our animals to show us how they were doing. She cleaned everything before she left which was very nice of her. We used her services for overnight stays and pet taxi. We'll definitely be using her again in the future!
Natalya had my pet's best interest in mind... she was caring, attentive, and loved to play with my pet's, these qualities can only come from a true animal lover/care-giver. I would definitely recommend her as she has experience and love for all types of animals and creatures and yours would be no exception!
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.
I will take care of your pets who are not vicious and somewhat people friendly. I am able to teach some discipline.
I love to take care of dogs. They're pretty much human like we are, and they deserve to have sitters also!
I walk, groom, train, and in-house sit pets including cats, dogs, ferrets, rodents, some reptiles, and some farm/ranch animals.
I love animals. I train them and make them a part of the family; I want them to fit. I also train the owner to understand what must be done.
